The Thief is a utility class when it comes to fighting normal enemies. With Steal and Mug, the Thief expands your party's inventory with otherwise, unobtainable items! On the Boss Battlefield however, the Thief sports one of the highest damaging abilities in the game! For a high cost of 95 MP, the Thief can use God Speed Strike which can deal massive amounts of damage twice to a single target.

This is without a doubt, the Thief's strongest ability. At the cost of 95 MP, you can pretty much destroy most bosses that stands in your way.
Both abilities solidify the Thief's role as an err... Thief because these are abilities for stealing items. You can't become a thief if you don't use these two abilities!
|Sleight of Hand||Gives 'Steal X' abilities the additional bonus of being able to take a single strengthening effect from an enemy and apply it to the user.|
|Up to No Good||Defaulting no longer causes BP to increase, but all abilities that are usually performed using BP can be performed using MP, and the cost of 'Steal X' abilities is halved.|
Speciality 2 Can only be learned after leveling the Thief to Level 12.
Strike a single enemy with a powerful physical attack that is guaranteed to steal an item.
|Physical Attack +15%
|Use Thievery x 13.|
Below are the weapons proficiencies for the Thief Job. Refer to this section to know which weapons are best suited for the Thief Job.
You'll face Bernard shortly after encountering the Water Crystal in Chapter 1. After defeating him in battle, you will acquire the Thief Asterisk.
The luck stat is a vital stat when attempting to steal items from enemies. With the Freelancer's Lucky Charm ability (and later, Wish Upon a Star) you can increase your Luck and successfully steal more items!
The Berserker can cover the Thief's lack of area damaging abilties. It is unsuggested for boss battles though as God Speed Strike is a superior move than any of the Berserker's offensive abilities but if you're exploring the wilds, make sure to set the Berserker as the Thief's subclass!
