Am I trying to steal a test from the wrong mobsFollow

So.. pretty sure that if I post this then I'll immediately succeed, but...

I'm having very bad luck stealing a thf testamony. I'm mainly in LoO for goblin bandits & in beadeaux for Plat. Quadavs. I'm wondering if I've somehow selected mobs that don't actually have it, if I'm having very bad luck, or if it's just a pain to steal.

From what I remember a few of my friends dealing with, those mobs you mentioned do have the testimony that you're needing, and that it's just a matter of luck that you steal the testimony rather than something else. All I can say is just stock up on all the +Steal gear you can for your level (if you haven't already) and keep at it. The Goblins would be easier to handle cause you could just pop Hide right after using Steal to lose all aggro, and it'd be up in time for the next Steal if you should need it again.

There's also a chance that someone might have stolen it and not killed the mob since those mobs/areas don't have a high traffic of people.

Thieves would only go for those mobs to steal the testament anyways and probably warp out/hide if they succeeded. In which case, the mob wouldn't have another one to be stolen.

Just to be safe, I suggest you try killing the mob then you know the mob has a test to be stolen 100% for sure.

I recommend farming thief testimonys from Goblin Bandits in Cape Terrigan near the outpost. Their repop is low and with people farming them for tabs for FoV augments you can be sure they have the testimony even if you didn't kill it yourself. The only downside is waiting for one to pop if it's being heavily farmed, but that usually happens pretty quickly. They have a respawn of only 5 minutes IIRC. Either way, that's your best bet. Heck, you can even use Hide if you fail and don't wanna kill it as well.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Because my server conveniently had the "OP warp for free" kupower active, this is what I did:

- Set your HP at your home nation MH nearest your OP warp guy.
- OP warp out to Yhoator as THF/whatever. Pull the Tonberry Shadower and try to steal. If you don't get it, defeat the Tonberry. (This is because it might have been stolen from already; if that is the case you want to refresh its stealable item.)
- OP warp back, change your sub to /BLM.
- OP warp back out to Yhoator, wait for the respawn. Pull the Tonberry Shadower and try to steal. If you don't get it, use Hide and Warp.
- Reenter your MH and quickly change your jobs and change them back to THF/BLM. This will reset your JA timers.
- Exit your MH, Flee to the OP guy and back to the Tonberry Shadower. Your Steal will be ready again already because you changed jobs. Repeat this process until you get a successful steal.
