Common role(s)
  • Tank
Job preferred Weapon(s)

The Knight focuses on maximizing defense skills, making it the most powerful "tank class" in Rappelz.

As one of the jobs Holy Warriors can become, Knights are focused entirely on expanding defensive combat. This means that they expand on the tanking aspects of Holy Warriors.

Hightlights

Strengths

  • High HP, P.Atk (when equipped with 2h mace) and P.Def.
  • Can utilize either 1h mace + shield or 2h mace (or both for pvp) for DPs or soloing.
  • Many threat-generating skills.
  • Some debuffs to aid a party's kill speed.
  • Highly demanded in DPs.
  • High burst damage in PvP, although the Knight's AoE and range nukes aren't as strong as their Soldier counterparts.

Weaknesses

  • Can lose aggression to strong DDs, DD-oriented pets, and more powerful threat-generating skills.
  • More party-oriented, due to skill development.
  • Not as mobile as Soldier because Shield Charge's range is shorter than Divine Crash.
  • Must be able to adapt to changing weapons (from 1h mace + shield to 2h mace) during PvP combo for maximum burst damage.

Notable skills

  • Soul Breaker- Decreases the target’s magic defense and magic resistance power.
  • Godly Protection- Greatly reduces the amount of damage received for a period of time while also reducing attack speed by half.
  • Heaven's Madness- A ranged holy attack skill that AoE damages and provokes around the target.
  • Spell Intercept- Hit your target with your shield and cancel their casting.
  • Holy Aura- AoE DOT with holy damage.
  • Heaven’s Judgment- AOE damage with chance to stun.
  • Hate Aura: AoE provoke around the knight.
  • Shield of Revenge- Reflects a percentage of damage back onto the attacker.
  • Physical Breaker- Decreases the target’s attack and defense power.

Pets

  • Yeti  (good tank with strong p.def unity)
  • Tortus (good basic tank, better staged with Pass Damage skill)
  • Orc (balanced p.def and p.atk)
  • Hawkman (a better orc)
  • Kenta (holds aggro with DD - can regularly steal aggro from you)
  • Gnoll (possibly best pet for Knight with its shield-based unity)
  • Genie (a better hawk)

Armor

For a Knight, all types of equipment, including Shields, should be obtained. However, Costumes and Helmets can be class-specific. Tables of what a Knight can equip are below. Most of knights prefer Warrior Costumes as they emphasis P.Def; however, occasionally Hunter Costumes which emphasis MovSpd and have higher magic defense could come in handy (especially in Water fall dungeon).

Weapons

A Knight should use any of the following. Note that Dual-wielding Swords is not supported by the skill tree.

The one handed mace + shield combination is used for dungeon parties so as to get block effects and also get full use of skills to create maximum aggro
The two handed mace method is solely used for farming and for PvP after shield skills are on CD so as to increase maximum damage dealt by each spam.
