Octopath Traveler – How to Multiclass with the Thief

There are eight main characters and eight classes in Octopath Traveler. When you eventually collect all eight characters, you’ll have the option to use; Hunter, Warrior, Dancer, Apothecary, Scholar, Cleric, Thief and Merchant.

Each of the classes has their strengths and weaknesses and the characters are all interesting. As you get to know them and follow their stories, you’ll undoubtedly start to have your favourites. 

Eventually, it becomes difficult to keep your favourite characters in your party as you’ll need a better or different combination of skills. 

That’s when Multiclassing coming into play.

Octopath Traveler Thief Multiclass

To unlock Multiclassing, you’ll need to find the special shrines located around the world. This guide teaches you how to find the Thief class knowledge so you can have your characters be both their original class and Thief if you so choose.

Finding the Shrine of the Thief

To learn the knowledge of the Thief, you’ll need to head to the Shrine of the Thief. Located south of Quarrycrest, you’ll need to head west from South Bolderfall Pass, then north at South Quarrycrest Pass.

Head north and after crossing the bridge, head to the west and then south. When you head south, you’ll need to head east until you reach the Shrine of the Thief.


Make sure you’ve levelled up before you enter this area as its Danger Level is 17.

Now You Can Steal Like a Thief

Once inside, head up the middle of the Shrine and examine the Daggers when you reach it.

You’ll then be given the Thief Class Knowledge and be able to Multiclass your characters.

To do so, head into the new Jobs menu and then select which character will Multiclass. You’re able to spend your Job Points to unlock additional skills in the new Job too.

When you get yourself into a battle, you’ll be able to choose abilities from both your original and new job. You’ll also be equipped with a Dagger and Sword thanks to being a Thief now.

However, you’ll need to equip better ones because the ones you get first are incredibly weak.

Keep an eye out for other Shrines in the world.

Octopath Traveler is exclusive to Switch.
