Thief Guide: Basso’s Jobs Guide
Basso is the side quest giver in Thief. He will give you various missions to do for you to earn coin and help you find collectibles scattered throughout the city. This guide will help you get through the missions with no trouble at all. Let’s get started.
Sick Willy – Activate this quest on your tracker and head into Sick Willy’s Townhouse. When you are inside look at the painting of the naked lady and activate the switch. Take the ladder up and inside the chest up there you will find the watch for the quest. Loot the rest of the house before you leave.
?(Missed the name before I beat it) – You will need a rope arrow and the razor in order to complete this quest. Activate it on your map and head dot the dot and loot up to see where you will need to use your rope arrow. Climb up the rope and cut out the painting to complete this quest.
Beauty Within – Put this quest as your active one and head over to the window. You will have to use a rope arrow in order to get up to that window. Go into the window and be ready because there is a guy with a sword inside. Sneak up behind him and knock him out. Head downstairs and looking behind the painting and enter the code 824 to open the safe and beat the quest.
Medical Misery – Make this your active quest and head over to the way point. Go into the window and head downstairs in order to find the quest item. There are three ways in and if you are using a door be sure to check through the key hole before you open it. I used the vent and made sure to exit when the doctor wasn’t looking. Take the medicine bottle and the quest will be complete.
A Lady’s Bequest – You will have to go through the doctors office and through the window in order to get to this mission. Go to the marked area and go into the basement. There is shelf you can climb and behind a the table barricade you can find the quest item.
Hand Tailored You will need to go through the doctors office and exit the lower level window in order to gain access to this part of the city. enter the tailor shop and either avoid or take out the guards inside. in the basement there is a safe near a guard and inside is the hand.
Watch Your Step – You will need a wire cutter for this quest. Head to the marker on the map and enter the window to start this quest. inside the area there are two sets of traps and a box you can use to shut them off. Get hit by the first trap then climb on the bed and use the box to cut off the traps.
Saving Fave – Go to the marker and pick the lock to enter the building for the quest. In the basement you can find the quest item but it is guarded by a trap. use the wrench to take down the plaque and behind that you will find a switch to deactivate the trap.
Taking a Fence – This one is a bit tricky and you will need a blunt arrow a rope arrow and a normal arrow to complete it. After you leave the room with the two sets of traps, the side quest room that you had to disable the traps in, you should see a window across the road with a rope to climb. Climb up that rope and enter the first window and exit out the other window. Now look up and you will see a spot to attach a rope and a way to knock down a platform. Use a broad head to knock down the platform then the rope arrow so you can climb up and jump onto that platform. Follow the path until you can jump across to the roof with a barred window. Use the blunt arrow to hit the switch inside and you can loot the place, use the books to reveal a hidden desk, and beat the quest. Use your focus if you can’t see the switch.
Writing Wrongs – You will need to find some pieces of a poem in order to beat this quest and you will need the wrench to get one of them. Once you enter the window you will see a chest right away, in that chest is the first pieces of the poem. Next head down stairs and check the desk for a second piece of the poem. From there go to the corner of the room and enter the vent and go to the other side. Close the chest and behind the chest you can find a third piece of the poem. I found the next one up in the bedroom on top of the book shelf, you have to close the doors in order to climb it. I found another one somewhere along the lines either in the bathroom or on the desk but it was an easy one to find.
Happy Medium – After you meet Vittori with he will ask you to retrieve a skull for him. Head to the black market and there will be two guys chatting. While they do that go around them and up and over the wall while remaining unseen. Open the door for Lenny and then follow him to his hideout without getting caught. When he stops the first time sneak to the valve near him and wait for them to ask for a flame and activate it fully.
When he stops at Rosey there will be another ale for you to turn to the left of Lenny. Go ore and turn it fully again. Follow him to his gate from there and wait for him to fall asleep then pick the gate to open it. From there follow him to the next door and you can now steal the skull. Once you enter the hideout drop to the floor beneath, which you can do under the hanging string in the first room.
There is a single guard down here so watch for his pattern and strike when you can. Upstairs there will be a guard and Lenny. You will need to take out the guard but Lenny is so drunk he will go pass out again and he ignored me when I took down the guard. The thing you need to get for the quest is upstairs and there is one last guard up there. Do what you have to do get the loot and return to Vittori.
