Stealing From Blind And Mentally Retarded NPCs
I tested this on armor only, but I see no reason why it wouldn’t work for any item if it’s large enough for your atavism to collide with it.
First off, go to any armor shop that has a piece of armor on display that you want. Jump up onto the shop keep’s counter and just run into and knock the armor item off the counter. This is not illegal and noone will even care. Next, keep kicking it by running into it multiple times until you have the item in a corner away from the view of the shop keeper.
The shop owner will actually follow you around the shop while you run about. Get him/her to follow you to the opposite end of the store, then quickly run back to where you placed the armor item. Use the sneak ability (default RIGHT CTRL) and pick it up before they see you. Done.
Sneak Walk Increase (Requires Rufio)
The Inn of Ill Omen is located Northwest of Bravil along the road. In the basement of it is a guy named Rufio. As long as you are reasonably quiet he will sleep forever allowing you to sneak around the room increasing the skill easily. Just put your guy facing a corner and rig the stick to keep walking and you gain a new level roughly every minute (early on). Note that if you
killed Rufio as part of the Dark Brotherhood’s quest, you won’t be able to use this exploit.
This Fight’s Freaking Easy
Having trouble with strong monsters or opponents? Work a bit on your Alchemy skill and learn to concoct potions to “Damage Health”. Combine such potions with your most potent weapon and hit your enemy a few times, then run off and cackle like a maniac while your quarry dies within minutes. (Repeat as necessary).
This requires your acrobatics to be fairly high (always jump when travelling to increase it), since you need to jump to a spot that’s normally out of reach. The blind spot is not immune to ranged weapons or spells, but for the most part, you can take down enemy combatants with your ranged weapons or spells without a loss.
As soon as the fight starts, run to the left. There is a gray stone pillar, next to the gate. Just jump on and up onto it, as high as you can. Often your opponent is there attacking you so the force of the attack may actually push you onto the short pillar.
If you do it right, you can stay perched up there, safely out of reach of most melee fighters. You can proceed to destroy your opponents with arrows or other ranged attacks at your disposal.
Free Iron Arrows
Go to the arena in the Imperial city and watch the blue team archer shoot arrows. Half the time you can go in there, the arrows the archers shoots will be there and you can simply take them without being labelled a thief. Naturally, you may want to save before attempting this.
Sneak Walk Increase (Requires Armand)
There is a way for you to get your sneak skill to rise very quickly in the game. When you have the option to join the theives guild by meeting Armand at the Imperial Water Front garden around 11 pm, accept his task. He will offer you the option to buy lockpicks. Don’t buy any. Go into sneak mode and go behind him. Not only will you get the lockpicks from him for free, you can also repeatedly pickpocket him to build up your sneak skill and all he’ll say is to go ahead, he doesn’t need it anyway.
