Faction Thief Template

    Been thinking about a template i want my thief to run with, ive seen some other faction pvp'ers / thiefs at work and decided i need a longer life span to compete on those revealing moments :lol:

    I was thinking something along the likes of this :

    100 tracking
    100 detect hidden
    90 stealth (+30 from burglar + shadow dancers) => EQ semi-proof
    50 stealing (+30 from burglar + shadow dancers) => sigil worthy
    120 ninjitsu (ki-rin)
    100 hiding

    Then maybe :
    - 80 chiv / 70 bush
    - 70 chiv / 80 spellweaving (pixies for quick protect)

    Any pros/cons u would like to share, tips, ur own template, ...? Please do so and help a newbie faction thief out ;) Also give a reason why u chose ur template please. :thumbup1:

    I would personally recommend having stealing higher than that in case of stat loss. I'm not exactly set on a template at the moment but I'm working with the following:

    100 Hiding
    100 Stealth (120 with legs and bandana)
    90 Magery (for the invis with protection)
    80 Stealing (110 with legs and bandana)
    80 Snooping (for when i'm bored)

    I had 60 ninjitsu and was working it up for wolf form but I haven't needed so I switched it out and am working on Tracking and Detect Hidden.

    Yes i was considering taking the stat loss into account, but i felt that if i would do this, i'd be running with half a template, ive tried it yesterday and i felt i failed several things too much. So the intention really is to avoid the dying part hehe. I dont play a shard such as atlantic so i dont have to deal with 20 people, but it could be 1vs6 easily.

    680-700 points in anything else you want

    Put on Shadow Dancer Leggings (+20), Bracelet (+15), Ring (+15) and Burglar's Bandana (+10) when you want to steal a sigil.

    Tracking - do you really need gm? As a human I can track - yes I fail a lot, but big deal when you have detect hidden.

    detect hidden - gm is perfect

    Stealth - you need gm. With less than gm, there's a chance at becoming revealed when you walk. Which sucks when you are behind enemy lines.

    Stealing - get gm on this. It will allow you to use your faction thief outside of factions.

    ninja - unless you plan to use death strike, I'd suggest dropping this down to gm. Then use lama or ozzie form.

    How to stay alive as a faction thief
    - wear a hit point regen suit with about 2 or 3 stam regen and good resists!!!
    - always carry some pots
    - always carry smoke (or egg) bombs
    - having a trapped box helps too
