You have a reputation for quick thinking and quicker fingers. Leave throat-cutting and con-running to lesser scoundrels. You live to liberate treasures held under lock and key. The thrill of bypassing a sealed door, complex trap, or other “impassable” obstacle is the true prize—followed by the payday that comes from whatever you took.

Fast Hands

3rd-Level Thief Feature

Experience has honed your skills, allowing you to accomplish precision work in a flash. In addition to its standard uses, you can now use the bonus action granted by your Cunning Action feature to do any of the following:

  • Make a DEX (Sleight of Hand) check.
  • Take the Use an Object action.
  • Use thieves’ tools to attempt to disarm a trap or open a lock.

Second-Story Work

3rd-Level Thief Feature

You’ve never met a wall you couldn’t conquer, and climbing them is second nature. You gain a climbing speed equal to your walking speed. If you already have a climbing speed when you gain this feature, it increases by 10 feet.

In addition, when you make a long jump, you cover a number of feet equal to your walking speed if you move at least 10 feet on foot immediately before the jump. When you make a standing long jump, you can leap half your walking speed. Either way, each foot you clear on the jump costs a foot of movement. In the event a STR (Athletics) check is required to clear or extend a jump, you can choose to make a DEX (Acrobatics) check instead.

Appraising Eye

7th-Level Thief Feature

You’ve developed an eye for quality. As an action, you can inspect any object within 10 feet of you that you can see to learn whether it is nonmagical or magical. If the object is nonmagical, you immediately learn its approximate value in gold pieces. You also learn whether the object is fake or could conceal other objects inside it (though you don’t learn whether it is currently concealing objects or what those objects are).

If the object is magical, you can spend 1 minute examining it to learn its type, rarity, whether it is cursed, and if it requires attunement (and any specific attunement requirements it has). After you have examined a magic item in this way, you learn how to use it and can ignore any class or feature requirements that would normally prevent you from using it (though you still must abide by any level restrictions). If a magic item requires the use of a spellcasting ability, use your DEX to determine your spell save DC or spell attack bonus.

Trap Specialist

11th-Level Thief Feature

When you or a creature within 5 feet of you triggers a trap, you can use your reaction to roll an ability check to attempt to disarm the trap. If you are successful, the trap is disarmed and not triggered. If you are unsuccessful, the trap is triggered as normal.

In addition, you can now disarm any magical traps that would typically require the use of the dispel magic spell. When you do so, make an ability check using only your DEX modifier, without adding any other modifiers to the roll. If the result meets or exceeds the trap’s DC (your GM has this number), it is disarmed as if you had successfully cast the dispel magic spell.

Thief’s Reflexes

15th-Level Thief Feature

You have become adept at laying ambushes and quickly escaping danger. Now, you can take two turns during the first round of any combat. You take your first turn at your normal initiative and your second turn at your initiative minus 10. You can’t use this feature if you are surprised.
