Summoned thieves are NPC summoned by the Thief profession when using Thieves Guild. Like most summoned allies they will follow their summoner and fight nearby hostiles until slain or their duration expires. 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.

If summoned by a Daredevil, two thieves and one Daredevil NPC will spawn. If summoned by a Deadeye, two thieves and one Deadeye NPC will spawn.

Combat abilities[edit]

  • The attributes of the summoned thieves depend only on their level and not on the attributes of their summoner. None of the thieves use Stealth Attacks, 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.
  • Using Thieves Guild again when thieves are already summoned will despawn the thieves before summoning new ones.

Skills above water[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.
