Hey gang,
I'm playing as a rogue and I CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME manage to steal the tool from the Andvari's workshop without him catching me and I am not sure what I'm doing wrong! Ugh! I am in sneak mode, and I have even slowed the game speed right down to give me more time. When am I meant to take it? When he is bending over the water? Another time? Am I meant to stand in front of the sheet of paper he keeps scribbling on, or the other side of the anvil? Or does it not matter? Do my thievery stats have to be over a certain level?
thanks in advance guys

It could be you need to train your Sleight of Hand skill better? That, or stealth.

Also, have you challenged Andvari yet?

Yes! I have challenged him. Oh, so the sleight of hand/stealth skills make a difference here? I had only just got the thieves toolkit right before heime had been kidnapped, so I didn't have much of a chance to build those skills up. They're currently sitting on about 25.

Can you tell me if I'm meant to be taking the tool when he is leaning over the water? Or another time?

Thanks for your reply!

Hmmmm... seems to be a skill challenge only.

You don't need to do this in Chapter 2, by the way. You can come back in Ch3 :)

Hey thanks for your replies everyone! I decided to come back to it later with a higher thievery skill level (I've turned over a few houses and managed to steal the figurine from the theives guild without being noticed) and STILL I cannot steal the tool.
can anyone please tell me when I'm meant to do it? Like where is andvari meant to be in the room when I swipe the tool?
this is driving me crazy!

Are you in stealth mode?

Oh, well there you go. That's nowhere near high enough. It's the stealth skill, by the way.

thank you! I figurine it would be something I could train by stealing the hedgehog figuring in the thieves lodge without being noticed. I've bumped the thievery skills right up and still can't do it, so Ill work on the stealth. Thanks so much!
