Hmm a good way to raise fame for norg is to farm northern furs off of them, send them to your mule, repeat until bored. Then go to Norg and get them all for the Black Market quest or whatever it's called. I'm gonna test this when they no longer con EP to me.(Sure I can take on {Decent Challenge} mandys in yuhtunga but I don't like spending this much time on something more dangerous due to links, aggro from weapons/wights/banshee, etc.)

Let me guess. To "dodge" mob attacks you run around it like a chicken with its head cut off. Give this a try next time you PT with a Thief. Stand still, don't move unless you absolutely have to. If the PT is less than LVL 30 than you make the THF's job really easy and have the melee fighters stand shoulder to shoulder opposite of the THF. Now watch and try not to get the drool all over yourself.

Thieves only suck before 15..Underpowered Warriors, pretty much. But after that they've got their uses. I agree with Euler, don't slam other classes, a well played anything can be effective in the right situation.

I disagree, you've either

A) Never played with a good thief
B) Been in parties that make it impossible for thief to do what they do.

What do we do? Get in the biggest damage shot. Warriors, monks hitting for 0-5 because Clipper turned on his defense skills? 56 Dmg on sneak while they're barely scratching him, end of fight. 110dmg on sneak + fast blade. 0 missed sneaks when they party knows what I'm doing. Subbed warrior, backup provoke that saves tank that didn't get their healing and mages when the tanks don't provoke.

Stop banging other classes.
not too bad

These guys arent too bad with a well rounded lvl 20-22 group we killed a Ranger and a Trapper (with downtme between) and no one died. got 2 Ice Crystals per guy both times so the crystals are fairly common
