The Bandit is the 2nd job advancement for Rogues who chose to use daggers over a claw and throwing stars/knives. The Bandit is a fast and agile class that uses weaker, yet lightning fast attacks to down enemies. Due to the short range of their weapon of choice, Bandits are forced to get very close to their targets. A Bandit's skillbook contains skills that play up their strengths. Dagger Mastery increases the power and stability of their daggers, and Dagger Booster raises the already blazing speed of their attacks. A Bandit's signature skill is Savage Blow, which when mastered, attacks six times in a row. They share the Speed and Jump enhancing skill Haste with the Assassin.
Becoming a Bandit
Go to the Jazz Bar in Kerning City once at Level 30. Speak to the Dark Lord. He'll give you a letter to give to the job advancement instructor near Kerning City. After giving the instructor the letter, you'll be given an errand to collect 30 Dark Marbles by defeating the monsters (the monsters depend on what server you play) inside a special map. Be careful to stock your potions up before you start collecting the 30 Dark Marbles.
Once you've collected 30 Dark Marbles, talk to the instructor, and the instructor will award you with a Proof of a Hero. Go back to Kerning City's Jazz Bar, and talk to the Dark Lord once again, where then you'll advance as the Bandit.
