  • advanced social progression skills..so I'm thinking there may be a pickpocket mechanic..I'm wondering if the scholars academy has to do with the arcane like for mages?
  • Steven said there will be no pick pocket mechanic already in a stream the only to steal anything from anyone will be through death
  • So I have to ask, still new to this forum..... how do you include signature blocks in your posts?

    No pickpocketing of other players, but there are plenty of NPCs out there to be targets. A worthwhile thought.

    Go to your profile->edit profile-> down below is a place to link an IMG file from a hosting service. (I use tinypics, It's free) and I don't know the size allowed but I went with the size requirement under the page profile pic which is 1.94 mb and just made sure mine was under that.
  • haha pickpocket does not sound like a form of social progression to me.
    I would think social progression would refer to diplomacy/charisma skills.
    But, we will see. Hopefully more will be good in any case.

    Stretch goals are things they were going to add to the game just at a later date than expected. I'm guessing the pick pocket answer will stick regardlesss as they don't seem to want it to be in the game based on their answer. As for far into the future.... maybe
  • ESO had a pickpocket mechanic that was NPC only. More stuff = "social advancement"..shruggs
  • I could see a potential mechanic, for those who want to experience the thrill of thievery, that allows players to steal items npc's or shops. Though, as always, there is risk involved with reward. Depending on your skill, there's a chance of being caught in the act, and punished.
  • I bet the guild will be involved in caravan raiding, with thieves fencing the stolen goods. The guild could then be a social place for the caravan raiders to meet up.
  • Soon as I read boner, I thought of this:

    Please don't ban me. ;A;

    By Social Progression Paths I would assume they just mean progression within one of the three guilds mentioned on the stretch goal.

    How they do that is going to be interesting. I presume it would mean quests handed out by more senior NPC members of the guild you join. I wonder if a player could progress to a very senior rank within a guild? Even the leader, perhaps? King Of The Thieves title?

    Things like this have been done in a number of MMOs and single player games, but the interesting thing will be to see how they incorporate it in to the nodes system. Would there be a separate branch of each guild for each different metropolis, or even different nodes, for example?


    As for pickpocketing, whilst Steven has said there will be no thieving skills in game, that surely can't rule out a quest that simulates you picking the pocket of NPCs. Though I did wonder if that when he said no thieving skills whether he was referring to player against player. As far back as EQ had a skill that allowed you to pick the pockets of NPCs. That should be easy enough to include within the game.
  • no pick pocketing could just mean you cant steal from other players, could still be something they could add for npcs though

    Unlucky
  • I would assume it's a place where you can go to enchance your stealth skills.
    but imagine, a huge invasion in a metropolis. your allies are backing down, but the enemies are dying mysteriously, one after another.
    lol it's just me. I'm killing them with my super stealthy mage/rogue
