Legerdemain Skills in Elder Scrolls Online are part of a special Skill Line that is acquired by stealing an item from an NPC. This Skill Line was added in Update 6 as part of the Justice System. Players will rank up this Skill Line by stealing items and selling them to Fences and picking locks. You get 1, 2 or 4 points towards Legerdemain depending on the difficulty of the target. At level 1 you can only Fence 50 items per day and you gain 1 point towards Legerdemain per item Fenced no matter the quality. You gain 1 point for picking simple chests, 2 points for intermediate chests and 4 points for advanced chests. Silver Lock Boxes will contain the best loot, but are rather difficult to get to as NPCs regularly guard them.

        What works for me to get a lot of points in Legerdermain daily is to do this:

        Travel to Daggerfall, Glenumbra.
        Unlock and Loot houses in order:
        1. Lavergne House
        2. Gane House
        3. Stogrin House
        4. Landreau House
        5. Jeran House
        6. Hastien House
        On the map follow the Yellow path to get to the houses, black path are
        guards and red path is where to run if you get caught by guards.
        Fence expensive items, launder cheap ones and sell to merchants.

          You also gain a point for laundering stolen items and you can launder the same number daily as you can sell to the fence. This doubles the rate at which the skill line levels.

          Personally, I sold the expensive items to the fence and laundered the cheap stuff if it could be used by my provisioner.

          There is a warehouse by the docks in Vulkhel Guard that's full of barrels to be robbed and no NPC's to see you. After emptying the place, log out and in again and all the barrels will be reset. Rinse repeat until you have enough items to fence/launder at the local thieves den (which is very close). Do this daily and you'll be level 20 in a few weeks.
