Note: It is not necessary to train this skill at a guildmaster in order to level it.

Beg an NPC for some money!

  • Begging skill is level-capped at (Level*5)+5
  • Has a 9 second cooldown.
  • When you perform a successful beg, NPCs will hand you a random amount of coin. Guards seemingly have an infinite amount of coin, while animals will typically never hand you anything.
  • Begging can be skilled up on any monster that can be stolen from, regardless of con. So, for example, you can beg from a level 1 goblin indefinitely (even after you take all its coin) for skillups.
  • A failed attempt at begging may result in the NPC or monster attacking you.
  • It is possible to beg platinum pieces no matter your skill level.
  • A great way to skill begging is to beg from a monster you are going to kill anyways then attack.
  • The rate of leveling seems equal to a skill like Foraging.
  • You need to be very close to your mark to attempt. If you are not close enough, you don't beg, but the cooldown timer still activates.
  • Begging shares a cooldown timer with Rogue Pick Pocket.
  • You can gain skillups regardless of success or failure.

A successful beg will result in the monster or NPC saying:

"Here [PC] take this and LEAVE ME ALONE!"
You have begged [amount of money].

A critical begging failure will result in the monster or NPC saying one of the following dialogues and attacking you:

"You have the audacity to beg from me??!"
"I Despise beggars, they are not fit to live."


  • All Max 255?


Target and stand next to A Boat and click on the skill. Although the boat will not con it is technically level 50 so will work well into the 50s. Although the boat will respond with critical begging failures it will never attack but it will never pay-up either.
