Thievery is very specialized and also very diverse. The actual skill of stealing and perhaps snooping are all that is really needed to be called a thief. The extra skills that are added to the template, define the purpose and perhaps the versatility of the thief. So post your templates here, and describe what your thief is used for. If you have any specialized skills include why you choose that skill. Feel free to list any equipment worn or carried that you feel is essential to the function of your thief. I'm sure this will help some others make some decisions as they build a thief. Let me go first, with one of my thief templates.

She gets her stamina regeneration for running in wolf form from her suit which has 7 stamina regen. The suit also carries 45 DCI. She has no real offense except for the shurikens she carries. She also wears the Treatise on Alchemy for the enhanced potions. As far as jewels, she has many but most are kept in the bank for different situations. On her person she carries a chiv +30 set (recall in stat) and an ecru citrine for the enhanced pots. The purpose of the jewels is still be able to perform certain functions and help the team while in stat loss.
