This guide will help you find exactly where the thieves are in the dark wraith world for each location in Betrayer.
Killing thieves yields big rewards and contributes to an achievement as well as 100% game completion for the completionists.
They always spawn in the same exact location as indicated in the maps in this guide.
For some reason, killing thieves contributes to the 100% completion of each location. Your objectives for the area will update, indicating that the thief has been slain after killing the thief. Although slaying them mostly rewards lots of gold.
Thieves DO NOT respawn after they are slain — they will never appear in the area again after they’re killed.
You only need to kill 3 thieves to unlock the achievement, Hunter. Besides the achievement, thieves will only contribute to 100% completion of the game, although killing each thief is not required to beat the game. The thieves will give you lots and lots of gold.
When you’ve successfully killed the thief, the message, “The Thief has been slain”, will appear on screen and your notes will update for the area objectives and collectible status.
Thieves look exactly like the crystal skull demons that attack you in the wraith world but thieves do not attack. They sound like the other floating vapor demons too, that is to say they will squeal like pigs when they’re alerted and grunt when they’re on their patrol. You’ll hear the sound of a swarm of flies when they’re near. Try not to run or engage in combat when you’re approaching them.
I’ve found that it’s easiest to kill them with a good musket because they move quickly and often there’s not enough time to get another hit on them. So, make sure that you are using a weapon where you can kill them in one hit.
Fort Saint George
The thief can be found in the far western section of the woods here, directly south of the burning maiden in the forbidden wilds. In other words, directly south of Tabitha Markley’s remains and/or grave.
If you’re having trouble, it may be easiest to find the burning maiden’s location and head directly south of her.
