The thieving skill is used for a number of different activities. The main uses are pickpocketing, lock picking, trap disarming and stealing from market stalls. First you have to start this skill by pickpocketing men.

Pickpocketing

To start this skill, you first need to find a man and right click on it and select the pickpocket option. There is a chance that the man you are stealing from will notice and will attack you. As your thieving level increases, you will get noticed less often. You can not pickpocket from players, only certain npcs.

Stealing from market stalls

To steal from market stalls, you have to go to Ardougne. You will find several types of stalls to steal from. When you try to steal from these stalls , you could be caught be the stall holders or certain Npcs, like Guards. Best thing I found to do is wait until the npcs are distracted or dead.

To steal from a market stall right click on it and then select the *steal from* option.

Lockpicking

Some doors in Runescape you have to pick their locks to open them. To pick the door right click on it and select the picklock option. As your lvl increases in pickpocking, you be able to access places you couldn't before. Respawn time ?. Rumor I heared that you can get lv. of lock by doing examine door or chest.

In the wilderness there are some places you cant access. You need to kill Rogues (in wilderness) to get a item called Lockpick Right click on the doors and select picklock. If you are higher enough in your pickpocketing skills , you be allowed to enter.

Trap Disarming

Certain objects such as chests and stairs have traps on them. To find a trap right click on the chest and see if there's a option"search for traps". If you don't disarm trap then you receive damage or possible other penalties. If you have higher enough thieving level then you will be able to disarm them. Do remember that traps do reset again later.
