MapleStory2 Thief Skills

MapleStory2 Thief (메이플스토리2 시프): With sleek and crafty movements, their enemies beg for mercy in front of their eyes. Faster than light, they swing their daggers in both hands as their enemies fall to the ground. Instead of justice and morals, power is what matters in alleyways, which is where the wandering rebel Jonathan Button and his group of followers, Thieves, began. Because of this, some people think its funny to call them “alley misfits who don’t even know the basics”. However, while many Thieves overlook it, they show their defiance with their brazen attitudes. In order to keep up their discipline and order, they do not allow outsiders but Thieves envy them because they want an honest and free life. The Thief, often called the Bandit, are part of the rogue branch of classes. Thief job relies largely on LUK but also a balance of DEX for its strength. Thief’s weapon of choice is a dagger. They have the ability to wield two daggers simultaneously or simply a dagger and shield combination.

    hey ayumi, thought u said this was a skill build guide. Is maplestory 2 a game where all skill points are going to be used? Which skill should be maxed first at early levels

  2. Zan

    hello, do you have any information about the mesos guard?

    @Roxis: Thief damage is pretty insignificant unless you make use of their Evil status and stackable poison effects. Boss HP just drains down like water through a sieve when executed the skills correctly. The other thing is their attacking range is similar or shorter than a Knight (MapleStory2 Warrior Tank). You need to get very close to the enemy to deal damage to enemy which is kinda of a hassle during grinding and evading boss ultimate attacks unless you have very low ping rate (less lag) and quick reflexes to use the skill to evade attacks.

    Is there an update on pros and cons for this class? Thinking of playing this but the difficulty is really high. Though on it ayumi?
