If your looking for a backstabing thief, try a dual fighter lvl 9 to theif.
If your looking for a mage that can use more weapons, try a dual swashbuckler lvl 10 to mage.
If you have room, Jan can show you what I mean about mutli M/T.
I think i have to disagree a little, I played a mage/thief once and he turned out to be very powerful because wearing the robe of vecna, i could backstab with celestial fury on most mages and kill them outright..like most thieve can but the kicker was i could backstab and follow up with magic missile for that extra kick or follow up with the level 2 invisible spell right away...wait a few sec's and backstab again...this is very effective.
Granted he was not as powerful as a full mage or a full thief but he was very versatile and i enjoyed it.
BTW Jan is not a good role model for mage/thiefs because he's stats suck...
