Summoned thieves can be summoned by the Thief profession. Like most summoned allies they will follow their summoner and fight nearby hostiles until slain or their duration expires (the duration depends on the skill used to summon the thief). Though the gender may vary, they are always the same race and level as their summoner. The male version wields two Bandit Revolvers and the female two Bandit Shivs. Both genders are dressed in full Sneakthief armor. Although they only have a small pool of skills to use in combat, each skill deals a fairly large amount of damage in comparison to the player.

Combat abilities[edit]

  • The attributes of the summoned thieves depends only on their level and not on the attributes of their summoner. None of the thieves use

     Backstab or
    Sneak Attack.png
     Sneak Attack so they gain no offensive benefit from stealth. The male thieves can evade attacks. While the females cannot, they will try to avoid area damage effects such as Choking Gas by moving outside of their range.
  • Since the male thieves do not have a basic attack skill, they will stand idle when they are out of Initiative.
  • The summoned thieves will always be of the true race of the summoning player. If the player is a human disguised as a charr, the summoned thieves will still be human.
  • There is no limit to the number of thieves you can summon, it's possible to summon up to five allies at once with a combination of Ambush, Thieves Guild and the trait Improvisation, or even seven if you additionally use Lead Attacks or Sleight of Hand.

Skills on the surface[edit]

The following approximate base damage is for level 80 summoned thieves from Ambush versus a Target Golem - Medium. Thieves from the Thieves Guild skill deal ~25% more damage. Summoned thieves have ~5% crit chance and will deal an additional 50% more damage if it becomes a critical hit.

Notes[edit]

Despite the description of Ambush, the summoned thief does not automatically select a target from nearby foes to attack. The player has to initiate an attack after the thief is summoned.
Although the female thief's melee attacks functions much like the Double strike chain, all her melee attacks are called Twisting Fang when seen in the combat log.
