Tricks of the Trade: Stealing Creations

posted by on 1st November 2009, at 4:15pm

Stealing creations is a mini-game that has you fending for yourself. Your team is set against another team and your team needs to get more points be the end of the game. There are many ways for you to get points for your team. You can be an attacker, which use melee, ranged or magic to take out your enemies or you can be a collector, which use tools to gather clay that you then refine, and either put into a familiar and use a scroll to send your items back, or you run back to your base, and deposit them there. Almost all the skills are used when playing Stealing Creations, except for Firemaking, Agility, Slayer and Farming. Now that you sort of know how the game is like, it’s time to get into the game.

Woodcutting, Fishing, Mining and Hunter are used to gather clay.

And Cooking, Fletching, Crafting, Smithing, Herblore, Runecrafting and Construction are used to make stuff for you to use, to deposit, etc. All the combat skills are used for attacking other people on the other team. Summoning is used to summon clay familiars that hold potions, food, armor, runes, arrows, and finally Thieving is how you would think it would be used, if your thieving levels are close enough, you can steal whatever your enemy has in their inventory and take it for yourself. Being a collector will get you the most points. Having all of your collecting stats above 80 will get you the most points seeing you won’t be limited to only being able to collect the class 4 clay. But also having all of your other skills 80 and over will help, because then you will be able to make the tools needed to collect the clay, or make the armor needed to defend yourself if your going to be an attacker. When you are a collector, all you do is get clay, and make it into items that you send back to your base so you get points. Most people will make one type of rune, or make arrows, because they can stack so you don’t need to waste scrolls. Now that you know the two types of people, I’m going to highlight being a collector, seeing it’s the role I play the most, and it’s an easy way to get points.

When you first get to Stealing Creations, unless you have a clan to play stealing creations with, you will head to the west and go into either of the waiting zones, getting ready to start playing. Now if you have never been to stealing creations before, you’re going to want to do the tutorial by talking to the head mystic. This will teach you the basics to the game and give you an understanding on how to play it. When you first get into the game after waiting to get in, you’re going to want to look for a class 4 clay deposit; this will give you a good starting point and will help you collect class 5 clay, if you have the skills needed to get that clay. After you have a full inventory of class 4 clay, head to a furnace and make one pouch, one set of scrolls and one of each tool needed to collect the clay. Now if you have a high collecting skill and you find a deposit that is class 5 in that skill, make the needed tool and go and collect from that deposit. Making barriers will help you and your team when playing, when someone dies while attacking, instead of spawning at your base, they will respawn at the closest barrier to them, and if what is being collected is still there, the person who died can get back into game fast and make up lost time. They also block out the other team from getting to the clay, so if you get a class 5 deposit, then you keep that for your team, and get more points for yourself, and your team, hopefully getting the 10% bonus at the end of the game.

This is all I can say about this game. This is a game I used to play all the time because it was something that I am very good at, and when you see how helpful the rewards are, you’ll know why someone would want to be very good at it. This is all I have for now, Tim Out.

    Ahh stealing creation <3 Nice article Tim. The most addictive mini game of them all I think 😛 It has been my experice that you will get max points by making all the level 3 arrows you can, wielding them as not to lose invintory space then as time winds down (or level 3 clay runs out) deposit your arrows by whatever means and move on to the highest level clay you can collect I would normally just give this to some one who can use it or deposit it ( my production skills are pretty weak 🙁

    Good article! Stealing Creation is one of my favorite games to play. I do have a minor correction though. Agility is used, the walls and ditches you see throughout the area require 50 Agility (I think).
