Ok stupid title I know, but what else do you call the miriad theories and claims made by players for years. People scoff when you mention moon phase, treasure hunter, hours, days, job combinations, weapon skills and other madcap theories on what makes crap drop. And really some of them seem to work, some don't I'm curious now, let this be the compendium of Thieving Voodoo theories. If you have an oddball theory or long standing rumor post it here, I'd love to have something to do with my spare time and provided it is profitable maybe we can all make some gil out of it too.
Lets say something by some miracle works more often than fails, it gets added to the fact list.
Something doesn't work after being tried and reported by an excess of 30 confirmed thieves to not work, we mark it Fiction, and don't hear about it again.
Now the natural response to this type of thing in a game this old is "That's crap none of it works," well I don't believe you, I haven't seen it myself, just because a few say it does not make it real. There is nothing wrong with testing random theories in spare time that's farming time anyway and there's nothing to lose from trying. Lets try this out.
