Throné Anguis Character Guide

The official game of Throné

Throné is the Thief of Octopath Traveler 2. Octopath Traveler fans should know that a Thief isn’t quite as mandatory this time around, as there aren’t unique treasure chests that only Throné can unlock. That said, absolutely do not underestimate this robber. Throné brings respectable offensive and great utility to your team, and her Path Actions are undeniably solid.

Throné can use Daggers and Swords, giving her solid offensive coverage against enemies. Check out the rest of what she can do below!

Throné’s Path Actions and Talents

The signature Thief Path Action returns in Octopath Traveler 2 as Steal. Just as it was in Octopath Traveler, Steal lets you pilfer an NPC’s pockets with varying degrees of success. While this is one of the best ways to score free items, you can drain your reputation from failed attempts quicker than you’d think. Save often if you’re stealing from everyone in a city.

As you might expect, Throné works especially well at night. Once the sun falls, she gains the Ambush Path Action. If you are at an adequate level, Throné will instantly knock out an NPC once Ambush is used. This is one of the best Path Actions for getting NPCs out of the way, as it doesn’t require entering combat or consuming an item. That said, foes with high level requirements may lock you out of secrets until late in the game.

Finally, Throné’s talent is Blessing of Darkness. Like the name implies, this grants your entire party immediate buffs in battle when fighting at night. This works in caves and dungeons too, so make sure to travel in the dark if Throné is on your team!
