Stealing Creation is a team-based game. To join a team, you must first speak to the Head mystic, who will teach you about the game.
After he has taught you all the basics of the game, you may either talk to one of the mystics and ask them to put you on a team, or you may simply climb over one of the stiles into the fenced area. Once you enter the game, you will be placed in a room with tables on which you or your team members can deposit the Sacred clay items they have made. Pass through the barrier in your team's base to join in the game.
Playing The Game:
Gathering Sacred Clay:
There are many ways of gathering Sacred clay for your team. When gathering, you will need a specific level depending on what class the Sacred clay is. For class 1 Sacred clay, there are no requirements to gather it. Class 2 requires level 20 in the relative skill to gather it. Class 3 requires level 40 in the relative skill to gather it. Class 4 requires level 60 in the relative skill to gather it. Class 5 requires level 80 in the relative skill to gather it. For whatever class you are gathering, you receive a number of points equal to 15 times the class you are collecting. For example: Gathering class 5 Sacred clay from a class 5 rock requires 80 Mining to gather and gives 75 points (5 *15) for gathering one shard of Sacred clay.
All of the methods for gathering sacred clay are:
Gathering it straight off the ground. (No skill required)
Harpooning for it via the Fishing skill. (A Fishing level corresponding to the class of the clay is required to gather this)
Mining it from a rock via the Mining skill. (A Mining level corresponding to the class of the clay is required to gather this)
Chopping it down via the Woodcutting skill. (A Woodcutting level corresponding to the class of the clay is required to gather this)
Catching swarms of sacred clay via the Hunter skill. (A Hunter level corresponding to the class of the clay is required to gather this)
Making Sacred Clay Items:
When collecting all of that Sacred clay of course, you would need a way to use it somehow. You will find a need to make your own Sacred clay items. To do this you can go to an oven looking structure called a "Creation Kiln". When you click on it, the following menu will show up.
In this kiln you can make Sacred clay items. The items have specific bonuses and are taken away if you die or the game ends. This means that you will have to start all over every game. You can make a wide range of items using this kiln. All of those items require a certain level in a certain skill. For class 1 Sacred clay, there are no requirements to use or make a sacred clay item. Class 2 requires level 20 in the relative skill use or make a sacred clay item. Class 3 requires level 40 in the relative skill, Class 4 requires level 60 in the relative skill, and Class 5 requires level 80 in the relative skill to use or make a sacred clay item. For whatever class it is you gain points equal to 15 times the class you are using to make an item. For example: Making a class 2 Warhammer requires 20 Smithing to make, and gives 30 (2 * 15) points.
Note: For more info on this see the Obtained During The Game section below.
Crossing To The Other Team's Base:
You may run to the other team's territory during the game. You may do this because you want to go venture out and find better classes of clay to gather, or maybe you want to go pickpocketing the other team's players. No matter what you wish to do, on the way there you may run into a number of obstacles. One of the obstacles might be the one of the other players.
If you want to hide from an enemy you could run into a Patch of fog. A patch of fog hides you and keeps you off of the mini-map. The only downside about hiding in a fog patch is that when you are in it you cannot tell who is on your team by looking at the mini-map.
Another obstacle might be a rift blocking the way. To get around this you just have to jump over it.
The third and final obstacle you may encounter is a wall. To get around this you just have to jump over it, similar to the rift.
One of the most popular strategies is skilling. This strategy involves gathering sacred clay, making any item out of it, then depositing it at your team's base for other teammates to use. You can start this by collecting some regular class 1 clay from the ground. Then, you can go make a piece of equipment of your choice (depending on what you are going to collect your clay from). Now, you head to whatever you are going to collect your clay from and start collecting. After you have gotten a shard of clay from that collecting spot go back to a creation kiln and make the same piece of equipment you just made (but in a higher class). Go back to what you were collecting from and keep collecting. Once your inventory is full, visit the creation kiln once again. Make any item of your choice and deposit it in your team's headquarters. Players with a decent summoning level may also use their familiar's special ability to deposit clay or items. This is recommended when you are gathering and processing clay far way from your base. It is wise to also make a couple of barriers with the clay you collect and keep them with you at all time. Barriers are used to keep your enemies from accessing some of the areas. Remember to keep repairing the barriers, as they will otherwise disappear after a while. Keep collecting and processing until about a minute until the game ends and then run back to your base and deposit every item you can, this will hopefully maximize your teams points. To maximize points, it is recommended to make runes, arrows or other stackable items.
*Note: If you have 0 points or fewer, you will not be able to withdraw any items.
Killing and Thievery:
Another of the most popular strategies is is killing and thievery. You can start this by getting the highest class of armor, weapon, and food you can use. Then, once you have these equipped, you could either head to the other team's area in a "pack" of your teammates, or just go alone. Whichever way you go, the idea is to deal as much damage to your opponents as you can. You can eat when needed. If it so happens that you run into a player that you can absolutely not defeat, just run into a patch of fog until you see your opponent(s) leave. You can also use prayer when needed and recharge your prayer at altars. The other option is to pickpocket your enemies. To steal from an opponent, your Thieving level must no less than 20 levels below your opponent's Thieving level.
