Anyone noticing any great gains? I've been trying it out and seems to yield 10-15% more cash at best, toherwise not noticing much change. Not that I expected it to generate any sort of great advantages, still would be nice if it resulted in the occasional vendor loot item or throwing daggers/arrows or some reason to put it in my hotbar.

I wrote a little pickpocket parser for myself and used it on a log file generated during a stint in SoS. It netted me just over 20 gold. I have it as a macro with 2 of my other back attacks so it doesn't require any special attention.

I also died twice, so that 60s does not pay for my repair bill sadly....Pick Pocket at your own risk!

I started a brigand on the pvp server and didnt know of this CA until I acquired it. I have been having some fun with this CA. I love how it doesnt brake stealth when you use it. But at my low lvl the most I have gotten is about 5s.
 
I would love to have this as a macro with another CA, but I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to macros. Would anyone mind posting what their macro is please?

when you do the macro, is there a way to make it use the icon for the attack itself?

  Well, you could avoid repairs by running around those guards naked, pick pocketing. I certainly don't want to take damage to my gear doing it, but I might toy around with it when I get bored, just to see how high I can get.

I like pickpocket now.  I use it often.  Gives me some spare change to play the Gobling Gambling Money Sink.  :smileyhappy:

I still think it would be nice to put out some pick pocketable only loot maybe just treasured items or no-trade items (which would mean scout only items) maybe nothing drastic but something other than silver. If I'm gonna pick pocket I'd like to get whats in their bags of holding not in their pockets of lent.

I think we should be able to pickpocket small household items like napkins or small paintings (all with very low or no rent reduction values), or at least something cool like naga underwear...

If you happened to grab underwear, you missed the pocket.:smileyvery-happy:

But don't you love how it says 100% successful yet after the patch it isn't always successful.  I am finding my pick pockets fail about 15-20% of the time now.

Not sure if it has been fixed but I have had this ability for about a week and a half and it has worked fine everytime.  I use it a lot when running to different areas.  I pick pocketing low mobs along the way.  It takes me maybe an extra minute to get where I am going by stopping to do this.  You can't beat free money even if its only a little.

The way I have my micros set up is that I use 2 of my backstabs  in rapid succession:/usea backstab1/usea backstab2Is there any way to squeeze the pick pocket in there like you can do with HOs? If I m not mistaken Pickpocket description states that it is instant (like a HO) but it is not true as I have not been able to do this:/usea Pickpocket/usea backstab1/usea backstab2My Ho chain macro works just fine. Any suggestions? To be honest I rarely ever use when it when solo because in the heat of the battle I forget/am too busy DPSing.
