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 can cleanse negative statuses that would affect their battle performance, such as Fear, Hesitation, Charm, Poison, negate On-Hits from the enemy and even Rampaging. All of those with nothing but strength of heart and willpower! (And Momentum.)
  • They have AoE unresistable pulls and two gap-closers, which are good to save momentum if the enemy is close or just adjacent to your position.
  • High emphasis on reducing physical damage. Black Knight paired with Demon Hunter's Matador Stance often has good results. (Destiny: Soldier just makes it better!)
  • 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! Needless to say, they're the natural counters to critical hit-relying classes, such as Duelists and Void Assassins.

Drawbacks

  • Low base movement and very few ranged skills.
  • They have no means to influence 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

To unlock Black Knight, one must move in a L shape (exactly like a Knight makes in Chess) while being a Level 20+ Soldier.
