Knight Pros and Cons


  • High defense.
  • Easy to mob enemies with “Throw Shield” skill that homes to an enemy and bounce to nearby enemies.


  • Half of Berserker’s sword attacking range, attacking speed and hits dished.
  • Knight skills from Level 10-22 deals 1 hit.
  • DPS (Damage Per Second) is lower and worsen with lots of misses.
  • For block and 100% critical to work, it highly depends on probability instead of relying on player’s skills.
  • Knight shines at Level 30 and above. So, it’s a little boring at earlier levels.
  • Shield Block only works with magical/physical projectile. Not able to reflect lethal attacks.

    Yea that’s right. On Level the skill already grants you +30 ATT. However, it could be a editing error, and instead of 30 ATT on level 1, it was meant to be..3 for example.

    Hi Ayumi!
    Long Sword Mastery says it increase attack by 30 on lvl 1 and lvl 10, so it means that the attack is already maxed on lvl 1? Only the attack range increases with level?
