1.0 What exactly is a Thief?http://i460.photobucket.com/albums/qq325/Konomiya/SubaThief_zpsrrf9b8ft.png

Thieves are the base physical class in Dream of Mirror Online. They are focused not on powerhouse skills, or large scale abilities, but rather the ability to dodge, flee, and trick their enemies. Having no real specialty, they can AoE mobs, fight one on one in parties, or solo. This is one epic class where you have the freedom to do as you like and get away with it too. Your build and skills will not determine the outcome of whether or not your group lives or dies so it's non stressful at that.

2.0 Pros of Becoming a Thief


2.1 No Experience Required
This plays off the title of the Guide or rather the number 098. As a thief you may be wet behind the ears and get away with it without notice. In game people may seem a bit harsh and expect a lot from you in parties on other classes, but a Thief can do their job effectively without any Sub Classes at all. You are not meant to act as a doctor or keep your own health up at all times. You take low amounts of damage thanks to your high evasion and low aggro generation with your skills. You have no dire need for MP Regen from another class since you receive an increasingly impressive one at a very low level.

Thief is a perfect starting class for anybody new to DoMO since not only do you not require any Subs to play the class starting out, but with personal buffs, regens, a long lasting stun and pilfer it acts as a great sub for nearly every class in game allowing you to get a head start on all of those. Additionally, Thief, in older versions of the game, proved itself to be the irrefutable best sub for physical classes end-game thanks to adding in damage in physical skill rotations.

A level in Thief is never wasted.

2.2 Famous (cat) Burglars
A thief may not seem like much starting out and arguably has one of the poorest Damage Per Second Rates (DPS) a class has to offer, but it has quite the end game potential. With fast skill usage/cool down along with their hard hitting skills and ability to dodge/flee/trick you have a great end game Player vs Player class. You will be the one to watch out for in the Arena.

2.3 Crime DOES Pay
The thief skill Pilfer (as well as Pillage) is one of the only means of obtaining Weapon Recipes for Alchemy (DoMOs weapon/armor crafting system). There are exceptions like the Life Quests, City Elder Missions and rare drop events (as was one of the original Phoenix fights), but even considering all those you still have tons of recipes that cannot be obtained without this skill. The price of a recipe depends on its difficulty to Pilfer and the class of weapon. Granted even recipes stolen from the most commonly fought monsters in game will still fetch a pretty shimmer in gold. Considering standard mob drops in a grinding party. You can get around 10k in one hour worth of drops grinding (lower level). With pilfer you have a chance to get an additional 5k each time you use the skill.

This allows starting (and Veteran) players the ability to craft items for themselves and not turning to others for armor and weapons when you need it the most.

For a list of what you can steal and where you can steal it here's AKFrost's Pilfer List Guide thingy-Mcbob-er‏:
Pilfer List | Archives (http://akfrostarchive.proboards.com/thread/18/pilfer-list)

3.0 Cons of Being a Thief

3.1 Group LF AoE User
Although a Thief has two fast casting and quick recharging AoE skills, you will always be considered a below average AoE user. Whirling Devilish and Swift Swallow Strike have poor damage for the amount of MP expended for use and low damage to even the poorest set up Fencer, Dancer, Shaman and Wizard. I wouldn't recommend putting points into those AoE skills at all.

Many groups will have a place for you, but you will never be a Massive AoE user (without physical Dancer subs anyways).


3.2 Hey Thief, Meet my friend Mr. Wizard
This is not a continuation of 3.1 comparing your AoE skills, but this time your dodge rate. Now every class has some sort of defense to protect themselves. Mercs have massive defense, MAs have high health, BMs can kill you five times before you hit the ground and a Thief has their Evasion. The problem here lies with their Magical Evasion. Although they have the highest (or 2nd highest with certain Dancer builds) you will still find that magical attacks and skilled based on Magical Acc will hit you often. If you ever get rooted to the ground by a Wizard or Shaman, chances are you are not coming out of it alive. You don't want to get "Frost Bite". Get it? 'Cuz the Shaman skill that freezes you is calle- nevermind..

You may ask, how can they always hit me even with such high evasion! I’ll have to tell you right off the bat, I haven’t a clue. I don’t know the magical formulas that will determine the chance of each certain skill used against you on your Mag.Eva. with their Mag.Acc. rolled against you. What I will tell you is that your Magical Evasion is far from useless and will be your savior many many times.

3.3 Congrats! You’re the Puller!
There are few classes suited specifically for pulling and in truth everybody can pull with ease, but people would honestly rather if you did it instead. Now you may ask, “What is a Puller?” Well Pulling is the act of gathering monsters from varying distances and then dragging them back to where your party is camping in order to knock them out in massive numbers all at once. Basically you’re leading the lambs to the slaughter, but the lambs are attempting to kill you along the way. Since you have such high evasion among other things as a Thief, doing such a task is done with ease really.


4.0 How do I Become a Thief

The quest to gain the Thief Qualification is pretty darn simple like most other job quests. This one however is particularly long winded unless you already have the ability to fly (Rq lvl15 minimum of one job and complete the Flying Frog King mission). Also, before you attempt this quest have at least 1,000gold that you’re willing to spend for it (because thief NPCs in the mirror world are cheapskates).

You start your journey in Swan Lake Basin (south end, entering from Eversun South) to the small town Tranquilton. Speak to 'Baby Burglar' and he'll give you a broken key for roughly 260gold (yes.. for a broken key..). Once you have the broken key head to the Mines in Eversun South and speak with the NPC labeled 'Between Burglar' who will give you a new key mold for roughly 300gold (amount will vary). After grabbing the mold head back to Swan Lake Basin (south) to speak to the Locksmith near the Guild Castle/Farm. He'll craft you a new usable key so you can open the Chest. He'll charge you 36gold for the new key(that's.. better?).

Now take a stroll on over to the 'Big Burglar' in Tranquilton and have a small chit-chat. After that, open the chest next to him. Once gaining the contents, go back to where the Lock Smith near the farm to speak with Bridget Love (that name though).

Say No to both of her questions (because girls like a little mystery) and she'll give you the thief qualification and a quick port to the dojo in eversun to change.[/quote]

5.0 What Stats Do I Increase?

For each level you gain, you’re given 3 Stat points to develop. These are the bonuses you receive for each point in the following stats:

1 Power = 2.13Attack
1 Wisdom = 1.73MP + .47Mag. Att. + .33MagDef
1 Agility =1.40Attack + 1.53Evasion + .27MagEvasion
1 Dexterity =1Attack + 1.6Acc. + .13MagAtt. + .27MagAcc. +.14Critical
1 Physique = .33Defense +.13MagDef + 6.27HP
1 Durability = 1Defense

Note: All points are rounded down regardless of amount.
0.85 in one stat will act as 0.0
1.54 in one stat will act as 1.0

The main stats you want to add points to are Agility and Dexterity.

Agility acts as both your Defense/Attack since as it ups your Evasion and Increases your Attack power. Agility also decreases your skill cool down time allowing you to use your skills more frequently than other classes.

Dexterity is needed more than other classes since your hard hitting skills have low accuracy. This is also in turn with your ability to land Critical attacks with your volley with skills/attacks as well. PvE demands very little Dex however since you’ll have acc buffs thanks to party members so you’re able to cap it at certain amounts.

Standard Stat Builds are:

2Agility/1Dexerity
3Agility
2Agility/1Physique
2Agility/1Power

There's more than just that though. There are soft Caps to capitalize your Mini/Maxing potential.
For DEX the majority of peeps stop at 28.
For AGI the majority of peeps stop at 103.

The soft cap for DEX is mainly 28 since all stats are rounded down.
Critical Chance increases with 7points of Dex and Magical Acc increases with 4points of Dex. 28 is the first number where they merge so you have no real leftover points making it a pretty ideal place to stop.
I strongly suggest you to get 28 DEX on your Thief no matter what.

The cap for AGI is a bit different. That cap is in place for your skill cooldowns. The maximum decrease for skillcooldown is 30% from AGI and that's when you hit the 30% cutoff. Anymore past that is just for minor stat gains. Those 2 to 3 points you were putting into AGI up to 103 is better placed into Power.

6.0 What Skills will Pay said Bills

6.4 Sub Jobs
Recommended Sub classes for thieves are fairly numerous and it really depends on what you’d like to do. For attacks/self buffs it’s good to go with:

Blade Master’s Martyr Attacks (Maniac Attack, Lash Out, Sneak Attack, Berserker Blow)
Fencer’s Targeted Attacks (Both Defensive Aura’s, Slap on the Wrist, Sinister Strike)
Hunter’s Hunter Instinct (Ready for Action, Unerring Aim, Go for the Throat)

Others you see fit from these trees as well.

For Regens:

Wizard’s Spellcasting (Cataclysmic Converter, Stalling Chant, and Chant of Liberation)
Doctor’s Medical Treatment (First Aid, Inner Magic, Regeneration [Reborn Again with equip syringe])
Shaman's Nature Magic (Malousus Mirror, Spring Cleaning, Heavy Frost, Choking Climber, Heatstroke)

For Equipment to sub from other classes you can’t go wrong with Equip Shield from Merc, and Equip Light Armor from Blade Master will raise both your damage and defense.
Heavy Armor Equip was also popular, but cuts ASPD, so solo thieves may want to avoid that. Especially since Merc skillpoints are scarce enough as it is.

Weapon Equips will also help you along the way.

Fan equip + Physical Fandango from Dancer is amazing for PvE and will make you desirable to groups.


7.0 The Dagger Bestiary

For the stats/possible attack power outcomes please take note from these from gYno’s Weapons Stats Guide back on a previous version of DoMO.
(Taken with permission). If you are interested in hearing my opinion, you can read the below (Honestly it’s just a useless wall-o-text though).

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m283/Shahmenad/Domo/Thief/DaggerStats.gif

Like most physical classes a Thief’s best weapon is an older one that has been upgraded once or twice over a brand new weapon. This is mainly because the bonuses of daggers generally stay the same with few exceptions, so attack takes priority. While this holds true to for later levels, you’ll be switching weapons around between levels 20 to 30.

When talking about pure physical damage, the level 18 dagger labeled, ‘Dagger’ (Creative huh?) should be the strongest weapon in your arsenal and use that for PvP if you want a damage dealer. However in PvE the level 20 and 23 daggers labeled ‘Hunting Knife’(Earth Damage) and ‘Damp Dagger’(Water Damage) respectively, both have an elemental attack strong against commons mobs.

So use your Hunting Knife when leveling in Neptune Temple and Damp Dagger in Phoenix Tower (as long as you’re facing element weak mobs).

You’ll notice that the level 33 dagger ‘Noxious Knife’ has a magical accuracy bonus on it. Grab this dagger as soon as you turn level 33 and ditch your others regardless if they have a better attack or not. Hold onto this one dearly folks, she’s a keeper!
Since higher level weapons in the game are hard to obtain, I.E. mats to craft level 50 weapons are very difficult to obtain and requires a high level alchemist to attempt to not fail its creation (mats for simply upgrading the level 43 and 40 weapons are the same as well), the every man’s best bet is the 33 dagger for PvP usage upgraded to level 43 and the 38 dagger upgraded to level 48 for PvE (when grinding).

Finding a level 40 weapon upgraded to level 50 isn’t a very hard task though these days. They drop from Bosses in the 5th quest located in Blacktoa Peaks, Town God Temple, East Sea Plains, Foggy Forest and Canute Canal 2. Mind you, these are difficult instance fights and the drops are distributed everybody in the party. So if one does drop, there is a very good chance it won’t go to you. Weapons past this point should not be in the game as of the moment and correct me if I am wrong, but they could change too. A previous instance of DoMO had two different weapon rewards for finishing the Main Quest Line. First was a nonelemental lvl 60 weapon. Second was a Golden Weapon. Later the lvl 60 could be crafted with an element. Please call me out if I am wrong on this, as I'm going off my memory eight years ago.


8.0 Suggested Leveling Locations

8.1 The Lone Thief
Recommendations by Exomega255 veteran of a previous instance of DoMO.


I figure that since no one made a solo area list, I would do so.
I leveled from 1-40 on thief, all solo cept for a few times being puller. Here are the "prime solo" spots that I have found and loved.
lvl 10-13: Zombies at townhall basement.[lvl 12] Low hp, low attack, dungeon mobs, what more can you ask for?!
lvl 14-15: Zombies/Rats at townhall basement.[lvl 12/14] Low hp, low attack, dungeon mobs, what else is new ^^
lvl 15-20: Spiders at Ferral Crypt lvl 2.[lvl 18] Low hp, wizard class = low attack, slow, don't aggro much, great drops, dungeon mobs, not populated much by players.
It's "nice" to have shields and LA, but not completely necessary at this point.
lvl 20-23: Pearly frogs and chests at Canal [lvl 20/21] dunegon mobs, hit a little harder, will aggro, but great exp.
lvl 24-25: King size eggs and papas at Phx Tower [lvl 22/23]. Dungeon mobs, repeatable quest, hits slightly hard, papa aggros, great exp.
lvl 26-28: Bonkers at PP or Foxes at Giantwood. [lvl 26]. Repeatable quest for fox (but they hit a little harder), both haev lower hp, but its field mobs, so its slower.
lvl 28-32: Crimson Globs at Neptune [lvl 29]. Repeatable quest, dungeon mob, easy to kill, low attack power.
lvl 33-34: Noxi. flies at Grassgreen square [lvl 33]. Easily killed, does have an accuracy de-buff.
lvl 34-39: Evil eye/Chest at Malachite Cavern [lvl 36/35]. Easy mobs, low hp for dungeon mobs, good drops, low amount of people in there [no KSing!]
lvl 39-40: Bandit Bow-Wows at Grotto [lvl 39]. Hits real lightly, dungeon mobs, plenty of 2-3 spawns to not overwhelm, repeatable quest.

8.2 PAAARRRTIIEEESSSS!!!!!!!!:XD:

10-13 Town Hall Basement - Zombies
14-16 Town Hall Basement – Grape Globs/Giant Rats
16-23 Inn Basement – Cask Masters
20-24 Phoenix Tower (Floor 1) – King Size Kuku Eggs/King Size Kuku Papa
21-27 Phoenix Tower (Floor 3) – Male Birds of Paradise
25-30 Neptune Temple – Crimson Globs
28-34 Neptune Temple – Man Eating Zombies/King Globs
31-37 Grizzly Garrison – Bandit Thugs/Bandit Chefs

9.0 It’s a Thief’s Life

9.1 The Level 20 Life Quest

Head to Darkdale, speak to Fanny Love (X:348 Y:309) and buy the Treasure Map for 1000 gold. Head to Farrell Family Crypt. On the first level at (X:311 Y:156), will be Sticky Fingers, who you must fight. Sticky Fingers is a level 25 thief who uses Bolt from the Blouse, and Ash Spray (which will make things dark, if you get hit by it, in the event that you do, run around to avoid damage). After you finish her, a cut scene will appear.
• Rewards Thief's Spring
• 200 Fame
• Recipe: Hunting Knife
• 1000 gold. (Technically, you don't get any gold though, because it costs 1000 gold to get the map from Fanny Love.)
Taken from DomoWiki (http://domocamp.com/domowiki/index.php?title=Level_20_Thief_Life_Quest)

9.2 The Level 30 Life Quest

Level 30 Thief LifeQuest

To begin the level 30 Thief LifeQuest you must go to Collington and speak with Stuart Stamp right outside the bank. You will have to gamble with him and win to find the location of Mr. Penn. It will cost you 200 gold coins for every try you must take before you win (I had to try 3 or 4 times) Once you have won he will tell you that you will find Mr. Penn in Quintuple Manor (you can find the manor off of Grassgreen Square will be on the map). Once you have arrived at the manor speak with the small child in front of the manor, he will tell you that Mr. Penn will only speak with someone who can find and disarm his traps alone. (the small child will NOT be on your map). You must disarm the traps in the correct order.

Note: The order of which the traps appear are random so the correct order from location isn't the way to tell. However by using the skill pilfer you can tell which you must kill in what order. Pilfering the traps will get you an item which will cut the health of an enemy down by 20k leaving only a tad of health left. The item will have three different markings on it.

I / I N I W I


The /, N, W component is actually a joke*cough*I mean puzzle*cough* that created by some wiz kid*cough*I mean brilliant programmer*cough* in Softstar.=.=;;

Took me a while to realize:
/ = 1
N = 2
W = 3

So, you destroy traps in order of /, N, W :lol:


After you have killed the last trap you it will go to a cut scene of you speaking with Mr. Penn and then you have completed the level 30 Thief LifeQuest.

REWARD - 300 Fame and 1 Thief Spring (5 skill points)

9.3 The Level 40 Life Quest


Ok, this is the basic rundown for Thief's Life lvl 40 quest:
You must kill 5 Giant Rats. (Fire, Metal, Wood, Earth, and Water)

[I do not take credit for all of this knowledge, so I would like to thank Circa and other people for helping me out. ]

Ok, so like I said, lvl 40 thief life is pretty simple. Just kill 5 Giant Rats.
However, their Health Points are about rounded to that of a Mirror Quest Boss. SO I RECOMMEND YOU GET AT LEAST 2 HELPERS WITH THIS QUEST UNLESS YOU'RE READY TO FACE A LONG, ANNOYING BOSS FIGHT.

DISCLAIMER: These are estimated coordinates, so if anyone has taken the quest and recorded the exact spot those rats are, please share. Thank you very much.

After you have defeated all rats, you must talk to O'Shea NOT Gilligan.
O'Shea is past Gilligan in Collington, on the bamboo mats leading to Emperor Gang's Palace.

Congratulations! You have just finished your lvl 40 Life quest!
You will receive the following:

1 Thief's Spring
1 Nippy Knife
1 Nippy Knife Recipe

I hope this improvised guide helps all you aspiring thieves. ;)

light hammer throw does slightly more damage than super stab. faster recharge, MP cost is pretty steep tho.

usually gets skipped because shadow/veil are way more powerful... and cost less than half the MP. I'd say it's something you'd only consider if the intent is to sub CCTeef onto merc or WD (and want a third burst skill).

Um, did no one else notice that this was PersianGato's guide? Way to take credit for someone else's work.

This should clear your misunderstanding.

I'm kinda forgot about shadow advance mechanic (since the last time i'm playing this game like 5-6 years ago?)

1. After using Shadow advance using dagger, can I change to another weapon without uncloaking myself?
2. If No.1 Yes, is another weapon skill also get the bonus damage and acc?

Thank you in advance

Nah, that's not possible mate. The moment you switch to another weapon besides your Dagger, Shadow Advance will be instantly removed. Long ago I believe at some point you were able to do what you're describing, due to the fact that Shadow Advance would last little seconds before it would leave after switching to another weapon. There used to be this pvper on the Onyx Server back in Aeria days (who's name I hardly remember) who would go Shadow Advance > Bow > Arrow Alchemy and he'd pretty much 1hit anyone. This is because there is no damage cap on the Hunter skill Arrow Alchemy. However this was eventually fixed and it never got around to even making it to Sapphire's server. So nah, but it would be cool if it were possible and done in a non broken way. Much thanks for the question though mate, as I humbly appreciate it.

it was never fully fixed since all they did was lag up the hotkeys.

You can still pull it off if you hotkey the bow and spamclick AA in the skills menu instead, but it's much less reliable.

1. Issit possible to do shadow advance and get the attack bonus on veiled volley/bolt frm blouse?
2. If not, what are the thief skills that can get the dmg bonus frm SA?
3. Wondering if anyone knows how the damage from veiled volley (if all hit) compares to skills from BM Martyr arts tree such as berserker blow and mindless slaughter

Thanks in advance from a newbie thief!

According to guild mates, Premonition and Fighting Foresight do stack with each other. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
