Of the list of "utility" Kila's I'm inclined to say only two of them would be useful, and those are "lowers magic evasion" and "Lower's magic attack". The thing is that magic attack can be offset by MDT/MDB armor and a mage to the point it's probably unnecessary and I'm not sure how much magic evasion is lowered, but there is a kila to raise your own magic accuracy as well. Since mages aren't going to be "missing" their spells once they cap their skill and a ninja main also won't miss kurayami with capped skill we're really considering our own half level ninjutsu skill, in which case the kilas to raise our own magic accuracy are probably going to be more useful. That said, if kurayami is what we're after we're still going to need assistance from magic accuracy atmas and gear, so much so that I've taken the general stance "if it's kurayami oh well" and move on with my standard atmas. I'll try and keep a ninja main nearby if I need kurayami, but that's only necessary on three elemental days and higher tier mobs. T1 and to an extent T2 mobs are so easy to spawn that it's easier to just pop another than worry about a specific setup so long as you cover most of the triggers. In my opinion the most useful kilas are str/atk, dex/acc, agi/eva, mnd/mdb, vit/pdt and int/matk. A note of int/m atk though. Martial Knife is a LOT better than int matk kila +2 when aeolian edge spamming. Because of that you only really need one int/m atk kila +2 to use in the offhand because spamming aeolian edge at 100% with martial is far more efficient and destructive.
Honestly if you've gotten to this point where you're literally struggling to find upgrades it may be best to focus on another job for the time being and come back to thief after the next update. I too have a small handful of armor left to get so I've begun spending time on black mage and summoner. My smn and blm are acceptable because I already have good atmas and abyssites but they need magic skillups and work on gear. Nevertheless, it gives me something to play with while I wait for new thf stuff to try and get, and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
