      Starts with the best Parry Shield in the game and Bandit's knife which can spam attacks so fast you'll bleed out most enemies

        What gauntlets does the thief start off with or does it even have them right off the bat?

              I've knotice at times you can easily circle enemies without casing them to attack you directly. Not sure if that's specific

                Luck increases bleed and poison rate as well. So as thieves we can capitalize on this and bleed our enemies dry. Grab that katana early, and slice your way to victory!

                  How to use the thief10 Apr 2016 23:34  

                  I would like to try out the thief for dark souls 3 but only played dark souls 1 and never managed to get pass the bull so ds3 might be easier because it's similar to blood born so can someone tell me how to work with the thief like what stats to do for him and what kind of equipment to look for please because he seems like my sort of chracter because I prefer speed over raw power but still manège to deal a decent amount of punishment

                      Knight or thief08 Apr 2016 22:45  

                      I want to start with a knight as its the most balance as I have never played dark souls but the thief looks so cool with the cloak dagger and bow so can someone tell me how to use for a thief because I will not know where 2 start or tell me the comparison between a knight and a thief so I can choose which 1 to play as

                      • No starting gauntlets either03 Apr 2016 11:16  

                        Nothing on the hands. Of course, the thief will look much better with some dark gauntlets and better boots instead of tatty shoes.Glad there is no hand slot armour though, I think I would just take it off for lower weight.
