Okay, so i'm trying to steal the Dread Armor from the Blacksmith, but when I go to steal his key, the only item it shows in his bag is a lil over 1,000 gold.

Help?

Are you talking about the blacksmith in Shrouded Hills? I just checked and in my game the key is there, but it's used only for the door, the barrel where he keeps his inventory has to be lockpicked.

You don't really need the key. You can wait till evening, when he goes back to his room follow him inside, wait another hour so he goes to bed and pick the lock on the barrel. You can do this with most of the shopkeepers in the game. It's also easier to steal from their body when they're asleep.

The only thing that makes stealing from shopkeepers harder is sometimes their keys work only on the door, so you'll need a decent Pick Locks skill to unlock the barrel/chest where they keep their stuff.

i think that's true for all shopkeepers except that one in shrouded hills. methinks he's the only guy you can exploit for unlimited gold without any points lockpicking or pickpocketing, though a high DEX helps.

i just bought the dreaded armor for virgil after getting enough gold from selling back his own stuff repeatedly.

Are there any mods that add new armor/weapon graphics? :)
