Thieves are a part of Explorers, and like their counterparts are one of the five class archetypes governing jobs in MapleStory. Short-medium range characters mostly using daggers, claws and throwing stars, they are the fastest short range attackers in the game, dealing weak yet many attacks on a foe. They regularly use their natural quickness and agility to navigate the area, trying to gain the upper hand. Like the rest of the Explorers branch, Thieves have the unique ability to choose between specialized job paths once they reach level 30 (Dual Blades are a special case that can be found on their own page).

When you reach level 10 as a Beginner, aspiring Thieves can go to the Hideout in Kerning City and talk to the Dark Lord, who will advance you to a Rogue. You will be given a HP and MP boost, as well as a basic thief weapon.
Once a Rogue reaches level 30, he/she can return to the Hideout and talk to the Dark Lord. He will give you a choice between Assassin or Bandit, and will allow you into another 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 Assassin or Bandit, depending on your choice.
Upon reaching level 60, you will receive a lightbulb on the side from the Dark Lord. After speaking to him, you must head to the Chief's Residence in El Nath and speak with Arec. He will send you off to defeat the Dark Lord's Clone. First, you will need to access Ice Valley II, which can be accessed via two methods:
- You can either walk to the right until you reach Cold Field II, and then keep taking the top portal until you reach Ice Valley II.
- Take the Danger Zone Taxi to Ice Valley II for a fee of 45,000 mesos.
Once you reach Ice Valley II, talk to Jeff, who will send you to Sharp Cliff I. Enter the middle portal on the bottom (indicated by a stone) to access Holy Ground at the Snowfield and click on the Holy Stone at the bottom of the map, which will send you to another dimension. Once there, walk to the right portal to enter the Dimensional World, and defeat the Dark Lord's Clone inside to collect the Black Charm. Return to Arec with the quest item in hand for a classy new job title and a new set of flashy skills.
After reaching level 100, you will receive a lightbulb on the side from Arec. After speaking to him, you 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 you the task to kill one Manon, Herald of Heroes and one Griffey Herald of Heroes to obtain Heroic Pentagon and Heroic Star, respectively. Return to Hellin and then speak to her again to advance.
