Description: Thieves are skillful, sly, and devious. They may only use daggers and swords, and may only wear leather armor at best. However, they come with numerous skills allowing them to survive in the dog-eat-dog world, including swiping and stealing; hiding, peeking, and sneaking; trapping, poisoning, and many others. Thieves also qualify for many devious fighting abilities.

Thief is the starting point for numerous sub-classes which the player may choose to gain levels in at any time. These sub-classes include: Assassin, Arcanist (Arcane Rogue), Burglar, and Trapper.

How to play: The thieves strength is in his ability to obtain money, and in his ability to navigate tricky situations. By accumulating the wealth of others, the thief can stay comfortably equipped with the latest and best money can buy. When playing alone, the thief thrives as the only class able to get into and out of any secret place without stirring up unnecessary trouble. Although not generally appreciated in groups, a group benefits from these skills, as well as the thiefs unique ability to deliver enormous amounts of backstab damage.

The thief is only moderately skilled at combat, but can make up for it by using his wealth to obtain favors, good equipment, and the necessary potions and scrolls necessary to survive the experience gaining battles.

Multi-Classing Options and Effectiveness

Thieves are good, well-rounded characters and can benefit from cross-classing with any other thief subclass.
