Black Knights are an intimidating presence in any fight, towering over foes with their huge armor and terrifying reputation. Epitomizing the principles of physical defense and protecting allies first learned as Soldiers, these warriors use the power of the Black Wind to force enemies to fight on their terms.

Strengths

  • Chess puns!
  • They have certain skills that cleanse negative statuses that affect their battle performance negatively, such as Fear, Hesitation, Charm, Poison, Rampaging and also negate On-Hit/On-Critical bonus effects from the enemy.
  • They have wide AoE pulls and two gap-closers, which are good to save momentum if the enemy is close or just adjacent to your position.
  • Stalemate will make sure Swords, Axes and Spears will tickle you. As long as you have the DEF required to increase the chances, of course.
  • Tons of free Critical Evade with Negation. Needless to say, they're the natural counters to critical hit-relying classes, such as Duelists and Void Assassins.
  • They're able to protect allies with Castling and Sacrifice when it matters, and lower damage taken by the entire party through application of Black Drain.

Drawbacks

  • Low base movement and very few ranged skills makes anything outside of five range become an extreme nuisance sometimes.
  • They have no means to increase their Resistance, making them very susceptible to magic damage most of the time.
  • The class may sometimes rely on the sub-class to cover it's weaknesses, which sometimes may or not be a drawback.
  • For relying mostly on Defense instead of Evade, a well-placed Buster Cannon from an Arbalest can ruin a Black Knight's day.

Unlocking

Requires level 20+ Soldier Class.

  • While in battle, move in an L shape (exactly like a Knight piece in chess, 2x 1y).
