Class-Specific Powers

Class Gear

Buffs

An accordion is required to cast Accordion Thief songs. Only two accordions can be used by non-Accordion Thieves. The accordion used determines the number of adventures granted per cast:

Notes

  • Many Accordion Thieves use their high moxie stat to plink their foes to death.
  • All Accordion Thieves (and Disco Bandits) started with the skill Moxious Maneuver before it was removed from the game on May 22, 2013.

References

  • Polka and Zydeco are folk musical styles that typically incorporate accordions. Mariachi is a similar folk musical style, but which typically does not use accordions.
  • "Squeezebox" and "button box" are slang names for the accordion. A concertina is a similar button-operated bellows reed instrument. A hurdy gurdy is a button-operated violin, which contains strings instead of reeds. A trikitixa is a Basque accordion (which is, oddly enough, named after the sound made by its usual accompaniment, a tambourine).
  • The large amount of titles with prefixes before you reach Accordion Thief (10-15) refers to Dungeons & Dragons (1st Edition), and the tendency to have large prefixed level titles for almost all classes.
