Witch Hunter


The Thief is more skillful in his attacks opposed to magical might or raw power. An ability unique to the Thief is that he is able to slash arrows and wisp shots out of the air, destroying them before they hit him.
When the Thief's attack speed is increased significantly it has a similar effect to the Paladin's shield in terms of blocking arrows. This should not be relied on though, as arrows can still get through.
His Smoke bomb allows for easy damage while it's active because the enemies hit with it are unable to move or attack back while it's up. This can be very useful in multiplayer as hoards of enemies can be pacified temporally.
The Thief's Character Title will add gold gain for everyone in your guild.
