Some law-abiding citizens have been meddling in the affairs of the Thieves Guild. The guild wants its pickpockets to teach the meddlers to mind their own business. I should look for ornaments, writings, or other oddities, but any treasures will do.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Read the Tip Board in the Thieves Den.
  2. Pickpocket a few personal effects, or a lot of any treasures, in the indicated zone.
  3. (Optional) Continue pickpocketing personal items or any treasures in a second zone.
  4. (Optional) Continue pickpocketing personal items or any treasures in a third zone.
  5. Return to Kari in the Thieves Den.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Read the Tip Board near Kari in the Thieves Den. A new message has been posted, announcing,

"Got some straitlaced types organizing watches, snitching to the guards, and otherwise making our lives difficult. We need to make a show of our displeasure. Maybe they'll hold their tongues when their own personal items start going missing.
We've noted areas where these busybodies are sticking their noses, but fleecing anybody there should send a message.
Finders keepers, all the Guild cares about is locals learning when to turn a blind eye."

Your task is to pickpocket items in the assigned areas - either items from private citizens, or any other types of items. Additionally, you are given the option to complete pickpocketing in two more areas, each of which will give a better reward. Once you are done with the pickpocketing, head back to Kari in Thieves Den. She will reward you according to how many zones you have completed.

Notes[edit]

  • The zones vary, but are always within the same alliance territory and the order always follows the zone difficulty, starting from the easiest. For example Grahtwood -> Greenshade -> Malabal Tor, or Auridon -> Grahtwood -> Greenshade.
  • The map will show circles on the major cities and towns within the zone, but these are only a suggestion. Any pockets you can pick anywhere within the zone will qualify. It may in fact be easier to find solitary NPCs who you can pickpocket without fear of guards if you stay away from the settled areas. Another tip if it isn't too late is to pick settlements which are occupied by hostile forces, such as Crosswych or Velyn Harbor prior to the quests which liberate them. These will have the perfect mixture of justice NPCs who can be pickpocketed and no interference from pesky guards.
