Ghost of a Tale - Thief Tunic Guide

Big stats boosts are available for the stealthy mouse who can find all the parts of the Thief costume in Ghost of a Tale!

Every good thief needs a proper set of equipment, and in Ghost of a Tale, that means finding new costume sets to increase your stats and make it harder for rat guards to spot you!

Guard costumes, pirate costumes, and more are ready and waiting to be discovered if you fully explore the game world. One of the best in terms of pure stats is easily the thief costume, which consists of five components scattered around the keep.

Ghost of a Tale Thief Costume

The thief's tunic once belonged to the legendary burglar Tulong, and finding all the parts to this costume will be required to complete the Dwindling Height's Keep quest named A Thief's Renown.

Disguising yourself as the famous thief hero of folklore will modify your stamina, health, resistance, and powers of perception for as long as the costume is worn. Below we cover all five locations of the thief costume components.

Thief's Boots Location

To find the boots of this ultra-stealthy thief outfit, head to the courtyard area of Dwindling Heights Keep and look for the cell where you talk to the prisoner mouse Gusto and his sister Fatale. Head over to the cell next to theirs and look for a conspicuous barrel next to a wall.

Move the barrel over to discover a hidden passageway into a new area. Head inside the passage and take a left, then run all the way to the back to discover the boots inside a chest near the wall.

Thief's Tunic Location

The main chest segment of the thief costume is found on a high ledge in the harbour area, but before you can get here, you first need to clear the rocks at the top of the armory stairwell. If you haven't gotten that far in the story yet, then the tunic will have to wait.

You can find the tunic by jumping off the bridge onto a ledge where the chest is hidden (this is easy to spot if you come down the stairs from the far tower). If you go through the building with the bed and a trap door, turn right as you exit onto the bridge, and you should see the ledge path you can jump on.

Thief's Mask Location

The mask piece of this costume isn't far from the boots location. From Gusto and Fatale's cell, head across the courtyard to the steps leading up. Climb up the stairs to find a room with a chest where the mask is hiding.

Thief's Hat Location

The hat portion of this costume is located in the catacombs area. You are looking for a tight ledge with a blue, burning light and a skeleton. The hat is right there between them.

Thief's Belt Location

To find the final piece of the Ghost of a Tale thief costume, head back into the courtyard area of Dwindling Height's Keep and look for the war room with the fireplace and the large table. The thief belt is in the chest in the small recessed area in the back of the room. The keys for the room are found on top of the cupboard near the balcony steps.
