Chrono Trigger reference
While crawling through the vents in Chapter 2, just after the men discuss disposing a body in the furnace, you can hear the Thief-Taker General whistle Frog's theme from Chrono Trigger.
Easy "Hail Of Glass" achievement
You can find a bottle in front of the "Reynard's Coffeehouse" shop (open world) in Clock Tower Plaza. Equip the bottle, and aim into the air right above you. After throwing the bottle, you have 1.5 seconds before it hits the ground. Shoot an arrow when the bottle is close to hitting the ground. The closer the bottle, the better your chance of hitting it. You can also try moving around a little by taking a step to the left or right to adjust your aim if standing still does not work. If you know the bottle often lands to your right, then take a step to the right. Save the game before throwing the bottle so you can
quickly reload the game and try again if do not hit the bottle.
Steal the Jeweled Mask:
First of all you're going to have to take out the Jeweler, so quietly get into
position behind him and knock him out. Make sure you steal absolutely everything
you can get your hands on, including one very important item called Lyegrove's
Letter. You can find it on the desk. One of the paintings found in each corner of the room conceals a safe. Once you've located the correct one, approach it and feel your way towards the trigger. Once activated, you'll find yourself facing a lock that can't be picked. Fortunately, the letter you looted just a moment ago rather handily contains the code you need. Once you've opened up the safe, take the special collectible item: Unique Loot (2/9) - Lyegrove's Jeweled Mask.
Thief 2014 Money Cheat:
Thief 2014 let’s you play the side mission called “Ector’s Client Job 1: Hand Tailored” unlimited times . This seems to work for as long as you’re between “Chapter 4: A Friend in Need” and “Chapter 5: The Forsaken”.
Money Cheat Method: Every time you replay the “Ector’s Client Job 1: Hand Tailored” side mission, it allows you to collect all the loot and stack chips! It’s likely happening when you’re not discovering every unique item when completing the “Hand Tailored” side mission. So the game is giving me another chance to discover the 3rd unique item before it closes it up for good. In the meantime I replay the mission over and over by finding all 24 loot items and the robot claw. The enemies are extremely easy at this point in the game, so just a few swipes of the club will take them out (no reason to waste arrows).
There’s also 1 food and 1 poppy in the level so it’s great for stocking up on those items by defeating it 4-5 times. Each completion nets me about 265 gold and takes about 10 minutes to do. After I get somewhere between 8,000 to 10,000 gold, I go back to the shop and upgrade everything I want and go back for more.
While inside the Stonecutter’s Court, find the Jeweler's Shop to the left of the guards that are chatting under the light. Enter the shop and knock out the guard to the left of the entrance, then turn to the right. Find the three cabinets below the red drapes and use a lockpick on the center cabinet to get the first mask. Once done, turn around and sneak into the cellar. Avoid the person working at the desk while moving to the rear left corner of the workshop. Interact with the painting and use the secret switch to
unlatch it to find a wall safe. Enter the combination "739" to open the safe and collect the other item.
All 12 safes with these combinations and tips:
Safe 01: Chapter 1: Lockdown – Serendi Jeweler’s Cellar

Safe 09 – Chapter 6: A Man Apart – East Lounge

You’ll witness a Graven killing a guard and you’ll find the safe in the room being guarded. Knock that chump out and enter the combination 0-1-7.
Safe 11 – Chapter 7: The Hidden City – Loading Docks Interior
Another area you have to pass through in order to progress the story of the game. After the elevator ride look for the guard walking a path that takes him in and out of a tunnel. The safe is in that tunnel. The combination is discovered later in the chapter so if you don’t want to backtrack enter 6-7-3.
Safe 12 – Client Job 4: The Carnal Connoisseur – Wine Cellar
