One of the most iconic guilds from Series, the Thieves Guild, is making its way to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. In this upcoming DLC game pack, you will be able to join the Thieves Guild as they work to rebuild themselves from ruin. While progressing through the new story-line, stealing and sneaking at the behest of your superiors, you'll be given a new passive skill line to assist you on your tasks.

The Thieves Guild resides in Hew's Bane, a port in the south of Hammerfell, where you will meet all new characters and be given the opportunity to unlock new weapons and armor sets. The full list of features can be seen below:
