    I am almost finished my thief, but I have a few extra skill points now available due to items.

    Here are my skills:

    Hiding 100
    Lockpicking 100
    Magery 100
    Ninjitsu 100
    Stealing 60(120 with Items)
    Stealth 50(120 with Items)
    Total 510 real

    I have Snooping 100, and Detect Hidden 100 both on Soulstones.

    As you can see, I have 0 Offensive skills, and I plan to hide/stealth my way through/out of danger.

    What would be complimentry skills to go with this guy. I usually solo with this guy, stealthing through dungeons...

    Any help will be a great help


    And I hope to see you around... but not you me...

    Wouldn't magery be a bit more effective with Eval and Meditation?

    it depends on your play style man. if you dont plan on stealing for other people, keep those 2 skills stoned, and maybe stone lockpicking (how often do you use it? what do you get from em?). if you get rid of lockpicking you can add eval and med for casting if you want to actually try to kill some stuff with this thief. or you could put on music and peacemaking to ensure your safety as you are conducting business (sometimes you cant rehide that quickly). also, if you are going to be on a production shard, i would make sure to carry around some insured invis cltohing/jewls. they are old and may be a little expensive. but they can save you in a pinch. also, if you find your self with some extra skill points, throw em into spellweaving. thats what i used on my siege pvp thief. its nice being able to summon pixies, dryad allure an orc brute, or have some other additional spells to mess around with.
