Skill-Stealing icon

In Dragon Age: Origins, there are several profitable targets that yield high value items when pick-pocketed.

The game's difficulty setting for all attempts is "Normal" unless otherwise stated. Raising or lowering the game's difficulty setting will increase or decrease the skill/attribute requirements, respectively.

Lookup Table

Note: With each additional rank of Stealing, you can reduce the required Cunning by 5 points. You also need 5 less points per rank of Stealth (if in Stealth mode).

Pilfering Notes

  • Stealing Mechanics are explained in the main article's discussion.
  • If you fail to successfully steal in Denerim, you will encounter a swarm of guards when traveling on the City Map to nearby locations. Some players also believe this happens after you have stolen from too many people in the town (successfully or not).
