Shadower is a branch of the Explorer Thief class. Upon reaching Level 30, an Explorer Thief can become a Shadower by choosing to become an Bandit after completing the 2nd Job Advancement at Level 30. Their second job is Bandit, their third job is Chief Bandit, and their fourth job is Shadower.
The Shadower job branch, unlike Night Lords, uses Daggers as their primary weapon, and Dagger Scabbards or Shields as secondary weapons. Instead of attacking from afar, Shadowers focus on fighting monsters up close. They have a variety of attacks for fighting multiple mobs, including Savage Blow, Phase Dash, and Boomerang Stab, as well as a few attacks for one-on-one combat, including Midnight Carnival and Assassinate. In 3rd job, they gain a skill called Shadow Partner, which mimics the player's attacks, dealing extra damage at a reduced rate. In 4th job, they gain a buff called Shadower Instinct, which increases their attack as well as giving a new method of gaining damage called Body Count; this system allows the player to deal extra damage with Assassinate as well as give the player additional attack power when their Body Count is full and the buff is used. Their Hyper Skill Flip of the Coin allows them to significantly increase their damage (stacks up to 5 times).
Their job specialty skill is Critical Growth, which increases Critical Rate every few seconds and while attacking, resetting every time it reaches 100%. This skill is upgraded in 4th job with Prime Critical, increasing Critical Rate even further while gaining the ability to increase Critical Damage in a similar manner.
1st Job Advancement
When the player reaches Level 10 as a Beginner, aspiring Thieves will be sent to the Hideout in Kerning City to talk to the Dark Lord, who will advance the player to an Rogue. The player will be given an HP and MP boost, as well as a basic thief weapon.
2nd Job Advancement
After saving Maple Island with the help of a Mysterious Voice, the player will reach Level 30 and talk to Athena Pierce, who will send the player back to the Hideout to talk with the Dark Lord. He will allow the player to choose to advance to either an Assassin or Bandit; a player that desires to become a Shadower will want to advance to a Bandit. After talking with the Dark Lord again, he will then advance the player from a Rogue to a Bandit.
3rd Job Advancement
At Level 60, the player will receive a lightbulb above their head. Talk to Camila in Henesys, who will then send the player to Six Path Crossway, where Rondo will be. After knocking his hat off, go to the bottom of the Six Path Crossway and grab the Old Wisconsin hat. Return to Rondo, and use the Interdimensional Portal to travel to Pantheon and talk to Cartalion. Rondo will inquire about finding other Anima like him, and Cartalion will warn not to travel past Pantheon's borders due to the Specter Invasion, sending the player and Rondo to the East Pantheon Border. After defeating 50 Specters, Rondo will give up and thank the player for trying to help.
After talking to Rondo, the player will be given words of encouragement from the Mysterious Voice, granting a new kind of power. The player will be prompted to return to the Dark Lord once again, who will teleport the player to the Chief's Residence in El Nath to speak with Arec. He will then advance the player from a Bandit to a Chief Bandit.
4th Job Advancement
At Level 100, the player will receive a lightbulb on the side from Athena Pierce, asking the Explorers to check on the various towns in Victoria Island. The player first plans to go to Perion and Ellinia, but Tess offers to travel there in exchange for the player traveling to the Nautilus. The player talks to Kyrin, who mentions meeting Tess and finding him suspiciously more advanced than other Explorers, while also feeling a strange cloudy energy from him that weakened her.
The player confronts Tess, who reveals that he's secretly Kyrin's older brother. He explains that centuries ago, his father Destonen encountered a follower of the Black Mage named Kirston, who placed a curse on his family's bloodline that would only disappear when the Black Mage was killed. After Destonen explained the curse to Athena Pierce and Tess, he died shortly after and the curse passed on to Tess and Kyrin, causing them to both become weak whenever they were in close proximity. Tess, realizing the danger, decided to leave Ellin Forest and not formally introduce himself to Kyrin until Black Mage was defeated.
After talking to Tess, the player will be given more words of encouragement from the Mysterious Voice, granting a new kind of power. The player will be prompted to return to Arec once again, who will teleport the player to the Forest of the Priest in Leafre to speak with Hellin. She will then advance the player from a Chief Bandit to a Shadower.
