Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk Thief Skills Guide

To be honest, the Thief is probably my least favorite character in The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos. Whether he’s striking up close or hitting from afar, he barely matches the capabilities of others. Still, here’s our Thief skills guide to help you out.

The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: Thief skills guide

Here are some of the active and passive skills I selected for the Thief during The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk‘s campaign. Choose wisely due to the limited number of skill points and the level 10 cap.

Active skills:

TierSkillEffectAdditional Notes
ISneaky StrikeBackstab that does 200% damageThis only works if the Thief is directly behind the target. You might want to use an “aggro/taunt” spell first.
ICaltropsDoes low damage, but it immobilizes the targetThis can be useful, but it gets resisted half the time.
IStealthBecomes invisible and can move around; will be automatically revealed if within 3 tiles in front of an enemyAgain, this can be useful, but you’ll probably get discovered every now and then.
IDisarm TrapAllows you to disarm traps during combat and explorationThis is unlocked by default. You can also swap to the Thief during exploration to disarm traps and gain an Explosive Bomb.
IVNervous BurstChain three attacks in succession; each attack has a precision penalty; missing an attack will break the comboUpgrade this so you have four consecutive attacks. This is probably the Thief’s most useful skill and it comes very late in the game.

Passive skills:

TierSkillEffectAdditional Notes
IBetter Safe Than SorryLets you wear heavy leather armorGet this so you can equip better armor pieces.
ILone Wolf+5/10% crit chance when there are no adjacent alliesThis is useful as long as you stay away from teammates.
IIBombermanBombs are stronger and have additional effectsA good example would be the Ice Bomb which normally hits one target. If you have this passive, it can hit 6 tiles instead (potentially freezing anyone in those tiles).
IIIPoisoned DaggersRegular melee attacks have a +20% chance to poison targetsThis is helpful since you probably won’t be spamming other skills anyway.
IIIExploiting Weaknesses+10% more damage on targets suffering from a status effectHave a teammate cast or throw anything that causes a status effect, and let the Thief focus on that foe.
IVCunning Agility+1/2 AGI and +2/6 dodgeThis boosts your defensive and offensive capabilities.
