Job


A thief is one of the five class archetype that other jobs in MapleStory draw from. They are the fastest short-range attackers in the game, dealing relatively low damage yet many attacks on a foe with daggers, claws and throwing stars. They regularly use their natural quickness and agility to navigate the area to gain the upper hand.

Like the rest of the Explorers branch, a thief has the unique ability to choose between specialized job paths once they reach level 30.

Job Advancements

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

At Level 30, the player will receive a lightbulb on the side from the Dark Lord, who will send the player back to the Hideout. He will give the player a choice between Assassin or Bandit and will send the player into a special map with the task to collect 30 Dark Marbles from the Swamp Monsters inside. Once the Dark Marbles have been obtained, return to the Dark Lord to advance to either an Assassin or Bandit, depending on the player's choice.

3rd Job Advancement

At Level 60, the player will receive a lightbulb on the side from the Dark Lord once again, who will teleport the player to the Chief's Residence in El Nath to speak with Arec. He will teleport the player to the Dead Mine's Holy Ground at the Snowfield, where the player must click on the Holy Stone at the bottom of the map to enter another dimension. Once there, walk to the right portal to enter the Dimensional World and defeat Dark Lord's Clone inside to obtain the Black Charm. Return to Arec with the quest item in hand for a new job title and a new set of skills.

4th Job Advancement

At Level 100, the player will receive a lightbulb on the side from Arec. After speaking to him, the player must head to Leafre and venture to the Forest of the Priest, which can be accessed by walking to Valley of the Antelope 1 and entering the portal on the top right (indicated by a wooden face-like structure) to meet Hellin. She will give the player the task to obtain the Heroic Pentagon from Manon, Herald of Heroes and the Heroic Star from Griffey Herald of Heroes. Return to Hellin and speak to her again to advance.
