yup. the skill we all dread. I need to get 99 eventually, and I was curious as to how Suomi gains 5m exp a day. If I knew his training method I could probably do the same exp/day with no lifing. 

 

How do you all train thief?? and what is their exp/hour

I did monkey knifers from 81 to 90.

The benefits are that it is very fast xp (over 200k an hour if you do it right, I was filling my festive aura with 5 mins to spare on most days) and that you do not risk dying as you take hardly any damage.

It makes reasonable money if you bank the items (about 1m from 81 to 90 if you can sell the knifes).

Compared to Pyramid Plunder, Plunder is probably better when you get over 91 otherwise I found it slower xp.

The main disadvantage of knifers is it hurts your hands. It is also very boring - I survived by watching/listening to stuff on another laptop.

Suomi does neither. Pp is 240k an hour and knife fighters is 300k an hour. At 24 hrs its like 4.8m exp. Suomi gained 5.4m exp.

Maybe a refer-a-friend boost was giving the bonus xp?

no human being can play 18 hours straight with perfect concentration......after 15 hours you get strange and loopy. Then the human errors kick in and exp/hr is reduced to like 175k

It's been a while since I've done thieving. I got 63-99 in under two weeks at Pyramid Plunder, but the amount of hours that I was putting into it was beyond ridiculous (I was truly addicted back then).

Not that i'm a big expert on thieving  but 15 hours a day? Don't think I could manage that doing any skill let alone thieving haha. Fair play though if you've got that concentration dude!

its honestly not that bad if u know how to take a 15-20 second break or a break for food.

eventually it gets to a point where ur doing it and not realizing ur doing it. 

Even with like agility it gets to that point where u can be reading something and just click knowing the muscle movements

He could be doing Dwarf Traders.  It's relatively fast at 99 and one-click so you can just spam it and watch Dragonball Z or something.  That's what I plan on doing (once I finally get to 90.)

Could have a lot of recharges for skill pendants too. And don't forget Black Ibis for 5% xp bonus.
