Thief (シーフ, Shīfu?) is an ability type in Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and part of the Other category.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The Thief school is focused on "stealing" the enemy's attributes, represented by debuffing the enemy and buffing the Thief. Fitting with thieves in Final Fantasy being known for their speed, Thief abilities have a casting time of 1.20 seconds, whereas the average among other ability schools is 1.50 or higher. Thief abilities tend to be non-elemental or Wind elemental.

Notable abilities in the Thief school include: Steal Time and Mug Time, which inflict Slow on an enemy and grant Haste to the user; Thief's Revenge, which hits up to five times and heals the user; Dash and Slash and Poison Leaves, which deal four hits and have increased power if the user is equipped with a Dagger; and several Rank 6 abilities, the first of which was Mug Bloodlust.

Rank 6[edit | edit source]

Unlocking access to Rank 6 Thief abilities requires the individual character to be at Level 65 and have their second level cap broken, unlocking their Record Spheres. The player can then use Thief Motes to unlock access to Rank 6 Thief. Note that only characters with innate access to Rank 5 Thief will have the Empowered Sphere that includes access to Rank 6 Thief; characters who must use their Record Spheres to access Rank 5 have no Empowered Sphere for Thief and cannot access Rank 6.
