Shifty Hands: A Guide to Picking Pockets
04/06/2011 a las 07:48
, for the less-agile and uninitiated, is a unique ability allowing rogues in stealth to loot special items from hostile mobs without entering combat. If done sloppily, it can aggro mobs, annoy your party members, and make you look pretty clumsy. If done correctly (and with enough bag space), you can amass a collection of unique items, and if you’re lucky, some epics inside of a lockbox. There's a lot of mundane objects in the pockets of Azeroth, but one's trash is another's treasure--you might find something amusing like a trashy novel or loaded dice.
This is a guide using Wowhead's vast database to show you every fun item you can pickpocket in World of Warcraft. Either for vanity item collections or just to send your friend something fun, this list will help you rediscover Azeroth and more.
Pick Pocket: An Overview
Pickpocketing was primarily utilized to acquire lockboxes, which were then used to skill up one’s lockpicking. (In Cataclysm, this ability lost some of its charm as it no longer required manual skillups.) It was also heavily featured in rogue-only quests: I have fond memories of
La llamada del destino
frustrating my level 10, and quests for Ravenholdt Manor and Sunken Temple requiring pickpocketed items. However in Cataclysm, stealth is no longer the answer and these types of quests have been downplayed, although rogues can still pickpocket the
Llave de Tragapenas
. Fortunately, most of the silly items remain, upholding the reputation that rogues are slightly sinister with entirely way too much booze and a path of
s in their wake.
The most important item one can pickpocket in Cataclysm is
Anillo descodificador de criptomántico
Hagara la Vinculatormentas
. This is needed to complete
Demuestra lo que vales
, an early quest in the chain for
Colmillos del padre
A few basic pointers about pickpocketing: to most efficiently pickpocket, get
and approach your enemies from behind to avoid detection in melee range.
is an easily-obtainable and useful talent as it inreases your speed while stealthed. If you see a mob with a blue eyeball over its head—run away, it has increased stealth detection. A pickpocketed mob will take roughly 10 minutes to replenish its pockets: try farming and resetting a dungeon if you are impatient. You can pickpocket most humanoids and some additional mobs as well; a good rule-of-thumb is that if it looks like it has pockets, it probably does. And it never hurts just to stealth up and try your luck anyway; you can even pickpocket some bosses. Just make sure you don't right-click the mob in melee range and auto-attack it by accident.
Here is a basic pickpocketing macro that you can use:

/cast Pick Pocket
You can modify this a lot if you want to combine pickpocketing with other Subtlety abilities.
Even without providing skillups anymore, lockboxes, the quintessential rogue item, still have some entertainment value.
are used to increase reputation with
, a requirement of the achievement
. Most high-end lockboxes follow the same loot table: they contain some silver, with a chance of gems, healing potions, poisons, and possibly an epic. As your rogue levels, you will automatically be able to open higher-level boxes every few levels. The boxes are not BoP: they can be mailed to alts and friends if you want to stockpile them. The boxes cannot be placed on the Auction House, but their contents can be.
Caja de trastos maltrecha
, from level 20-30 humanoids, requires 1 Lockpicking. It contains the fun item
Reloj de bolsillo pequeño
Caja de trastos desgastada
, from level 30-40 humanoids, requires 70 Lockpicking. It can contain
Poción de sanación superior
Caja de trastos robusta
, from level 40-50 humanoids, requires 175 Lockpicking. It can contain
Poción de sanación excelente
, with a small chance at
Caja de trastos pesada
, from level 50-60 humanoids, requires 250 Lockpicking. It has a high chance to contain
, once useful for
Mira de francotirador
, and a small chance to contain one of the following epics:
Hoja de las Sombras
Tizona llameante de Teebu
Navaja solar de Alcor
. As stated above, this type of junkbox is needed to achieve exalted
Insane in the Membrane
, in the quest
Se necesitan cajas de trastos
Caja fuerte blindada
, from level 60-70 humanoids, requires 300 Lockpicking. There’s a small chance to contain
Superpoción de sanación
or one of the following gems:
Piedra del alba
Ojo de noche
Estrella de Elune
, but the real fun is getting
La hoja de la noche
. This started a tradition of lockboxes containing epic thrown weapons, as they’re generally scarce on boss loot tables.
Caja fuerte reforzada
, from Northrend humanoids, requires 350 Lockpicking. There’s a small chance to contain
Poción de sanación rúnica
or one of the following gems:
Brillo del otoño
Esmeralda del bosque
. There’s three weapons unique to this lockbox:
La hoja del anochecer
Caja de trastos marcada por las llamas
, from level 80+ humanoids, requires 400 Lockpicking. These can contain a ton of useful things. The
Jarabe de pícaro
is a unique twist on healing potions; it’s BoP and usable only by rogues—even more useful since healing potions are scarse this expansion. In addition to containing relevant gems (
Ojo de demonio
Topacio de ascuas
), they can also contain items needed for inscription offhands and relics (
Cuerno de dragón extraviado
Fragmento de escama de Alamuerte
Ojo de ogro en conserva
Pulsera de talismanes de plata
The three unique epics are
La hoja del crepúsculo
to complete the long line of Krol weapons.
In addition, the Reinforced Junkbox, Strong Junkbox, Sturdy Junkbox, and Worn Junkbox can contain the following macabre greys:
Diario de un pícaro
Cráneo de humanoide
Hueso tallado de marfil
Pocket Corners: Flavor Items
In addition to lockboxes, humanoids contain a wide array of flavor items in their deep pockets. From romance novels to rivets, a rogue can pickpocket something incriminating for later blackmail. There’s also boring stuff like ooze and scraps: it's not as interesting to highlight, but you can find a full list of items from pickpocketing
A rogue can pickpocket food and drink most any vendor can sell; we’ll concern ourselves with the unique items, namely booze.
There’s six beverages unique to pickpocketing:
Grog Corazón Negro
from any Cataclysm humanoid,
Líquido de embalsamar
mostly in heroic Shadowfang Keep,
Brandy enriquecido gilneano
from any Cataclysm humanoid, and
Vino beso de sol
Store your beverages in
from drunken level 30-40 mobs.
While a rogue would never use cologne or perfume to give away a hideaway, it appears most mobs in Azeroth enjoy fragrances and beauty on the run.
is unique to Uldum,
from Vash’jir is perfect for a fishy smell,
Agua de Taurene
from level 80+ mobs is for Horde pride, and
Colonia ahumada de Fras Siabi
also from level 80+ mobs is good for smelling like tobacco.
There’s a series of handkerchiefs either for applying makeup or gently dabbing tears away caused by Deathwing’s destruction:
from level 80+ mobs,
from starting zones, and
To view your reflection, fix up your
from level 20-30 humanoids. Use
Peine de cola
from Uldum on wild manes.
Keep your hands manicured during battle with
Cera de quitina
from Northrend and
Lima de garras
Esponja de escamas
from Vash’jir to freshmen up,
Pluma que hace cosquillas
from Deepholm on ticklish victims, and
Palito para rascarse
from Ashenvale on hard-to-reach places.
In times of great strife, Azeroth distracts itself with sensational literature possibly centered around
General Marcus Jonathan
, a strong and silent hero of Stormwind.
Novela romántica tórrida
, the original trash romance novel from Burning Crusade, turns murloc hunting into flirting between a warrior named Marcus and a Nahni, a female mage. Level 20 quest rewards were never so appealing.
Continuing in Wrath,
Novela romántica tórrida: Amor Prohibido
documents Marcus’ experiences with a sarcastic undead rogue in the Deeprun Tram teaching him about finishing moves and daggers.
Argent Confessor Paletress has a hidden taste for romance; you can pickpocket
Novela romántica tórrida: Luna Azul
from her. In this latest installment, Marcus tries to woo Soola, a draenei jewelcrafter, with a cheap necklace. Will she spurn his advances or will the Light soothe all nerves?
Novela romántica tórrida: Grandes bombas metálicas
, the Cataclysm installment, follows Revi, a sassy goblin, as she prepares for her date with Marcus by buying engineering-flavored toys. The series ends here, but you’ll need a secret goblin decoder ring to read the rest of the story.
To finish out the series,
Novela romántica tórrida: Expuesto a Rasganorte
is a possible reward in
Bolsa de tesoros de pesca
from Northrend fishing dailies. In this story, Marcus shares his retribution talents with a gnome lady eager to teach him about her affliction specialization.
Revista del caballero goblin
, from 80+ humanoids, appears to have its pages stuck together as it’s unreadable.
Un libro de cocina exótico
may sound tasty from level 40-60 humanoids, but it will definitely curb your appetite. A spoof from The Twilight Zone, it talks about how to roast humans.
Lucky Dice and Talismans
A good rogue has a lucky talisman and some rigged dice.
Dado decagonal de enano
from Northrend humanoids rolls between 1-10 and is perfect if your rogue wants to officiate some Dungeons and Daggers.
Gnomes are sneaky:
Dado gnómico cargado
, from level 80+ humanoids, rolls sevens. Every time.
Dados de trol desgastados
from Northrend humanoids rolls between a 1-6. Any class can obtain these three die on the AH.
Talismán de la suerte
is an easy talisman most anyone can get; it’s from level 20 humanoids.
In case your original Rabbit Foot isn’t cutting it, consider getting
Otra pata de conejo
, primarily from Twilight Highlands or
Garras de raptor de la suerte
Bolas antiestrés con tintineo
are great for staying calm during raids.
Rocks appear to be a popular item to pickpocket; perhaps they’re used in slingshots even though it's not very subtle.
Una bonita roca
mostly from Razorfen Kraul,
Una roca muy bonita
from Vash’jir, and
Trozo de coral
from level 10-20 humanoids.
For impatient rogues lacking finesse, there’s
Instrumento de roca primitivo
from starting zones and
Piedra de intromisión
from Mount Hyjal and Deepholm.
Sadly, the mobs that dropped the
have been removed in Cataclysm.
They aren't rocks, but the following items would make cumbersome weapons too:
Hueso pulido grande
from level 10-20 zones, and
from level 50 naga.
There are just some items that can’t be classified, but bring a smile to even the twitchiest rogue’s face.
Una mano extra
is literally an extra hand, a weapon from Howling Fjord, Borean Tundra, and Dragonblight.
Una calabaza iluminada
drops from level 60-70 demons and undead.
Botón pulido con ácido
is a wildcard; it’s from level 20-60 oozes in Azeroth, with a fun flavor text and a decent selling price. One assumes the unlucky victim was dissolved by the acidic ooze.
from select mobs in Dragonblight and Grizzly Hills, is a fun item to thrown between players during raid, a racy version of the
Roca de diversión
Remache de bronce corroído
was meant to be used in the unimplemented
Chistera de la alta sociedad
Efigie de gnomo
, from Burning Crusade, supports the theory that gnomes exist to be punted.
looks fairly boring from Wrath murlocs, but includes the sarcastic flavor text “Sounds like the Land.”
Tablilla con jeroglíficos
, from Uldum, is a reference to the Rosetta Stone.
The items may not be game-changing, but they add a certain charm to the class, show the humorous side of WoW, and provide collectors with a new batch of items to find. While you can't cast Heroism or tank the boss as a rogue, you can find really embarrassing items--and that's something.
