Suppose I have a halfling that's multiclassing as a fighter/thief and has achieved 2nd level in both classes. This character has the misfortune of being struck by a wight and loses a level.

What happens here? Is the character now level 1/1, or do they become a level 1 fighter and a level 2 thief? If they lose a level in only one class, how do you determine which one?

Fighter

A multi-classed character (or character with two classes) who is drained of an experience level always loses the highest level he or she has gained (e.g., a halfling 2nd level fighter/3rd level thief would lose one level of thieving ability). If all levels are equal, the highest level of the class which requires the greatest amount of experience points is lost. If a multi-classed character (e.g., a fighter/magic-user) is struck by a creature which drains two levels, a level is drained from each class.
