The Chief Bandit is the third job advancement for the Bandit. The Chief Bandit takes everything the Bandit has and makes him or her faster and deadlier. Their skills revolve around power, speed, and mesos, which can now gain double effect with the use of Shadow Partner. A Chief Bandit can attack with Assaulter, a powerful stunning dash that can be applied in a variety of situations. They can explode mesos on the ground with Meso Explosion, causing damage to surrounding monsters, and Meso Guard converts some damage to mesos. They can summon a Band of Thieves to attack the immediate area as a mob attack. Thanks to the Big Bang, Chief Bandits are now just as mobile as their Hermit counterparts due to the availability of Flash Jump.
Becoming a Chief Bandit

At the end you'll be confronted by The Dark Lord's dark side. Defeat him and return to The Dark Lord with the Black Charm. He will give you the Necklace of Strength to show to Arec. Present it to Arec. Arec will tell you to go to the Holy Ground at the Snowfield from the door in Sharp Cliff II. Once there, sacrifice one Dark Crystal to answer five questions. Answer them all correctly and you'll be given the Necklace of Wisdom to return to Arec. Speak to Arec once more to complete your journey as an Bandit and advance to Chief Bandit!
