The previous Dark Lord had a student Jin and a daughter Sulhee. So basically what happened is that the previous Dark Lord's friend, Tristan, asked for help in killing the Balrog. Unfortunately, Dark Lord was turned into a monster by Balrog and his student Jin had to kill Dark Lord because he was attacking Kerning City. The previous Dark Lord's daughter, Sulhee, saw her father's corpse brought by Jin. She thought that Jin framed and killed him because of his position. So Jin became the next Dark Lord and Sulhee created a secret dark organization to go against Jin. (Although she loved Jin) Now bandits are disappearing from Kerning City under Sulhee's orders to transform them into Dual Blade to fight against Jin.

Q: What does work + mean?
A: All +SP work must be spent before the next real work.
So you can save SP for work at 20, 55 etc, but not 30/70. You can't save SP from, say, lv20 to lv55, because there's a regular advancement level between them that requires you to spend it all.

Nimble Body (Max Lv. 20) Passive
Increases accuracy and avoidability.
LV 01: Accuracy +1, avoidability +1
LV 10: Accuracy +10, avoidability +10
LV 20: Accuracy +20, avoidability +20
This skill is optional. Thief's primary stat is LUK (luck).
LUK provides accuracy, damage, and avoidability.
Skill Point (SP) is spent on this skill if no useful skill is available.

Sharp Eyes (Max Lv. 8) Passive
Increases attack range using thrown weapons such as stars and knives.
LV 01: Attack range for thrown weapon: +25
LV 04: Attack range for thrown weapon: +100
LV 08: Attack range for thrown weapon: +200
The official description is a bit misleading.
Like dual swords, you don't play katara (double-bladed weapon).
This skill is only useful for the thief who uses claw and throwing star.
Dual Blades does not require this skill! Don't add SP to it.

Mayhem (Max Lv. 20) Support
Temporarily reduces an opponent's morale.
Your weapon def. and the attack will suffer, and the
The attacking enemy will suddenly stop attacking.
You cannot do this on an enemy that is already in "Disorder".
VI 01 : PM -5; Enemy Weapon Attack -1, Weapon Defense. -1 for 7 seconds
MP 10: MP -7; Enemy weapon attack -10, weapon defense. -10 for 31 seconds
LV 20 : PM -10; Enemy weapon attack -20, weapon defense. -20 for 60 seconds
This is not a useful skill and does not work on boss monsters.
In practice, we beat monsters with 1-4 hits without leaving them
to counterattack. Spoiling one by one is a slow way to train.
However, 3 SP is required in Mayhem to unlock Dark Sight.

Required Skill: Lv. 20 Night Vision
LV 01: 11% chance
LV 10: 29% chance
LV 20: 49% chance

Blood Storm (Max Lv. 10) Active
An advanced version of Slash Storm.
Attack multiple enemies at high speed with elaborate moves. Required Skill: Lv. 20 Storm Slash. Lv. 10 effect: Can be used with Lv. 10 flying raider

LV 10: MP -40, 280% damage, attack 8 enemies, attack 2 times, 300% range
It's raining blood! The only bad thing about this skill is that it requires at most Slash Storm, which requires a skill book. Bloody Storm hits hard, is flashy, and runs from Flying Assaulter to boot. Only Bloody Storm at max can be chained from Flying Assaulter.

Mirror Image (Max Lvl 30)

Summons a doppelganger that looks like you to help with attacks for a set amount of time. Your doppelganger cannot use certain abilities
LV 01: MP -250, 60 seconds, mirrors 22% damage
LV 15: MP -230, 120 seconds, mirrors 45% damage
LV 30: MP -200, 180 seconds, mirrors 60% damage
Don't worry, this doppelganger is tame. A Shadow Partner that costs no more to summon stones and has an even higher damage multiplier. So why didn't I max this out at the start of my build? Because mirror image does NOT take skill damage multipliers into account. In other words, your damage is calculated from your normal attacks, even when you're using skills. Also, the maximum number of hits is only 15, including normal and reflected attacks. Still, it's pretty useful, so I'd max it out after you're done with the other useful skills.

Owl Spirit (Max Lv. 20) Active
Summons an owl spirit that tries to instantly kill 1 enemy. If successful, your attack rate for a given number of attacks will increase by 1.5x. However, the effect will be restricted on some skills.
LV 01: MP -50, 200% damage, 21% chance, 3 attacks, 130 sec cooldown, 300% range
LV 10: MP -60, 290% damage, 30% chance, 6 attacks, 85s recharge, 300% range
LV 20: MP -80, 390% damage, 40% chance, 9 attacks, 60s recharge, 300% range
Quite useful, but the cooldown is a total delay. Also, what regular enemy can you find that you would have a hard time killing with a few hits?

Upper Stab (Max Lv. 20) Active

Throw multiple enemies into the air. You can deal additional damage by attacking airborne enemies.
LV 01: MP -25, 150% cast damage, +32% damage while airborne, attacks 3 enemies, 176% range
LV 10: MP -30, 195% cast damage, +50% damage while airborne, attacks 4 enemies, 176% range
LV 20: MP -40, 245% cast damage, +70% damage while airborne, attacks 6 enemies, 176% range
Surprisingly, this skill actually offers one of the highest DPS for a dual blade due to its ridiculously high Speed. Its delay is so short that you can launch enemies and then jump and Upper Stab it back in the air!

Flying Assailant (Max Lv. 20) Active
You descend diagonally from the air, slashing enemies within a certain range, with a chance to stun them. To use the skill, you must have at least 120% jump. Required Skill: Lv. 20 Own haste. Lv. 10 effect: Lv. 20 Tornado Spin can be used with Lv. 10 Bloodstorm
LV 01: MP -24, 160% damage, attacks 4 enemies, X Var = 27, attacks 2 times, 3% chance to stun, 4 seconds, 250% range
LV10: MP -28, 250% damage, attack 5 enemies, X Var = 35, attack 2 times, 5% chance to stun, 5 seconds, 270% range
LV 20: MP -36, 400% damage, attack 8 enemies, X Var = 55, attack 2 times, 7% chance to stun, 6 seconds, 320% range
"You're not tall enough to use that skill." Get ready for this phrase to flood your chatbox. The reason is that you have to jump before you can use the Flying Assaulter AND you have to use it at the top of your jump. Still, this is the best mobbing skill you'll ever have in terms of DPS, and pairs with Bloody Storm or Tornado Spin for a super flashy attack. You need a Lv10 Flying Assaulter before you can chain him in Tornado Spin or Bloody Storm.

Poison (Max Lv. 30) Passive
You attack after coating your dagger with poison. Enemies have a chance to be poisoned by the poison and continuously take damage. Can be stacked up to 3 times. Enemy's HP will not drop below 1 through Venom.
LV 10: 4 seconds, 31 basic attacks, 32% chance
LV 15: 6 seconds, 45 basic attacks, 40% chance
LV 30: 8 seconds, 60 basic attacks, 50% chance

Maple Warrior (Max Lv. 30) Support
Increases the stats of all players within a group by a certain percentage.
LV 01: MP -10, for 30 seconds, all stats +1%
LV 15: MP -30, for 450 seconds, all stats +8%
LV 30: PM -60; for 900s, all stats +15%

Final Cut (Max Lv. 30) Active + Support
Sacrifice a significant amount of HP to deal powerful damage to multiple enemies. After activating this skill, your attack rate increases for a certain amount of time. The amount of HP consumed, the damage and the buff effect of the attack vary by meter. However, the attack rate enhancement effect is restricted on some skills.
LV 01: MP -150, 920% damage, attacks 8 enemies, 40% max power, Y Var = 200, 30 seconds, 100 seconds cooldown, 250% range
LV 15: MP -250, 1200% damage, attacks 8 enemies, 50% max power, Y Var = 200, 40 seconds, 105 seconds cooldown, 300% range
LV 30: MP -300, 1500% damage, attacks 8 enemies, 65% max power, Y Var = 200, 60 seconds, 100 seconds cooldown, 350% range

Monster Bomb (Max Lv. 20) Active
Place an Explosive Spell on 1 monster to create a powerful explosion. The explosion occurs 3 seconds after the amulet activates, dealing damage to anyone within range, both enemies and allies.
LV 01: MP -130, 820% damage, attacks 15 enemies, 3 seconds, 60 seconds cooldown, 220% range
LV 15: MP -180, 1050% damage, attack 15 enemies, 3sec, 50sec cooldown, 220% range
LV 30: MP -230, 1200% damage, attacks 15 enemies, 3 seconds, 30 seconds cooldown, 220% range

When you have Dark Sight active, Chains of Hell closes in on an enemy to deal damage by attacking up to 12 times. However, stationary monsters must be within range.
LV 01: MP -55, 100% damage, 350 range, attack 12 times, 140% range
LV 15: MP -65, 170% damage, 400 range, attacks 12 times, 140% range
LV 30: MP -75, 250% damage, 450 range, attacks 12 times, 140% range

Poeinstinct personally suggests that you try to train level 50+~70 Windraiders. The EXP:HP ratio is incredibly high and you can level up faster than the MP3. It's a challenge to get to Lower Ascent, but the rewards are great. It's easy to outrun monsters on the way to the Jump Quest map. Just activate your darkvision. The JQ is the trickiest part. A video of how to get to Lower Ascent can be found HERE. If you need to transplant, the easiest way is to have one of your other characters sit down in Singapore and buy "food" from the NPC, such as "Crab Cakes" or "Rambutans", and place them in the MTS. Please note that there is a fee of 5,000 meso when you place an item on MTS. That way, you won't have to go back and forth across town to get the transplant done. Here is a better understanding of the method. (thanks to crosis)
