Hey Guys since there is nobody posting about the basic details of the warrior advanced class: Dark Knight so far, so I would like to take this chance to promote this class which is good but hard to unlock. I am yet unlocking this class and all information I get is from HK avabel online wiki :http://www.hkgavabel.wiki/career/warrior/darkknight (yes I can read Chinese) Requirement : level 70 or above , sharp x 30 , hard x 40 , evolution gangue x 5 (cannot be unlocked using gems) Similar to Paladin, Dark Knight is also an INT based advanced class which has both offensive and defensive skills. By the way, it is the first class that require shield being equipped in order to use some of his/her skills. Since it is an INT based class, blunt weapon, 1h spear or dagger are recommended as dark knight's weapon. As for the build, I cant provide any suggestion for that since I don't have a dark knight character yet, but i think pure/major INT build will maximize his efforts and potentials. (another black sheep class for warrior?) Dark Knight skills are all MATK based, so we need matk weapon and INT to enhance his potential. Skill one : Dusk Claymore (active) Definition: It is a set of AOE horizontal slashes with 3 combos, zero cooldown. (it has slightly bigger aoe than cataract from gladiator, but slightly lower damage).

It last around 10 seconds (before branch). usable weapon: dagger, 1h sword,blunt, axe, 1h spear Maximum level : 10 SP consumption : 30 Skill : Magic based (actually this is not an attack skill and i dunno how INT affect this skill) Branches: A : shorter cooldown time B : enhance the speed rate (more faster) C : longer skill lasting Lv. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Jexp 3600 4900 8800 15200 21000 46800 90000 243000 612000 1386000 Hidden Skill: Last Stand (active) Definition : only can be used with shield equipped.

Lv. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Jexp 9600 15900 28000 49200 60000 120450 138270 278960 899140 1939520 3539040 All information here is just my translation from the another thread, in which there might be some mistake. Please correct me if I am wrong. As a conclusion, this class is quite similar to paladin class, which tends to be more defensive compared to other warrior advanced classes. IMO i think this class can perfectly serves as a "tank" , especially after combined with paladin mastered skills. Unfortunately, this class is INT-philia and that will bump most of warrior skills (STR based skills).
