If you've been looking for ways to get the most out of your OSRS Thieving skill, Blackjacking is one of the most effective ways. Theft is a very useful in-game skill that can be upgraded with a technique that we'll talk about today. If you want to earn more OSRS gold, here's what you need to know about blackjack.
So what is blackjack?
The art of blackjack is used to raise the level of thieves in OSRS. This is done with blackjack, which is a member-only weapon and cannot be acquired by players playing the game for free. You use Blackjack to stun enemies and then rob them. To access the Blackjacking method you must have completed Feud Quest, and to do this you must be at Level 30 Thieves. Then, to successfully start playing blackjack, you must reach Level 45 Theft.
There are different types of blackjack in Old School Runescape, including oak, maple, and willow. They can then be molded to suit what you want to use them for, from attack to defense or just standard blackjack. The best you can find is probably a clone that you can either unlock with the Rogue Trader minigame or buy from the Grand Exchange.
If you've found blackjack, you need to know what to do with it. Your goal is to knock out your opponent, which you can do with blackjack by right-clicking on your opponent. When they get knocked out, right-click on them to take out their pockets twice. You must remember that you only have a very short window. You have three seconds to steal from an unconscious enemy twice, otherwise you will be caught and taken damage.
However, if you are caught, you may see a message that says, "I will kill you for this," which will lead to an attack. If that happens, all you need to do is knock them out again and repeat the process.
There are many things you should take with you when playing blackjack. As mentioned, there is a chance that you may be attacked by those you are trying to rob if you are not fast enough. Therefore, it would be good to take some food with you to maintain your health points. You'll also want to bring your armor with you in case you get hit hard. The regeneration bracelet will also give you good health should desperation come.
Where to train blackjack
Therefore, you should already know what blackjacking is and be prepared to get started. To hit the road, head to the Shantay Pass, where the Magic Carpet ride takes place, and see if you can catch the elevator to Pollnivneach. You'll now want to lure the bandit into an area where there are no others as you may be caught by another if there is more than one in the area. Find a quiet room, then hit when needed. Choosing a bandit should depend on your level. There are three different types of bandits, with bearded bandits for thieves at level 45, bandits in white costumes at level 55, and finally with colored costumes for players at level 65. If you are not sure what they want to look like, try right-clicking on them to study them more closely.
Another great area where you can level up the Thieves is in eastern Ardougne. You'll find several quests here that you can take part in, including stealing the theft of Ardougne Knights, which will give you a decent success rate. There are also many stalls here that you can rob if you choose to do so.
If you've been looking for an alternative to buying OSRS gold, or want a break from selling OSRS gold, Blackjacking can be a great way to earn some extra cash. It may not be as effective as other methods, but it can be a great way to level up thieves, and overall it's a fun activity.
