Dark Knight Class Guide

INTRODUCTION

Remember that class guides are a rough explanation of the class, designed to give you an idea of the class and what you should be aiming for. You should really adapt the guide and follow your own instincts to match your play-style!

The Dark Knight class uses a two-handed Kriegsmesser as their primary weapon and a Ornamental Knot as their secondary weapon (same offhand as Berserker). At level 56, the Dark Knight unlocks their awakening weapon. The Dark Knight class uses melee range to slash at their enemies as well as dark magical mid-ranged spells. She is often compared to the Sorceress class because of her dark magic and playstyle. They have quite a lot of mobility and powerful engages, as well as high attack damage once awakened. But they do have low defenses and can be somewhat of a glass cannon. Most of their skills do tend to feel quite slow as well and you should max your attack speed as soon as possible.

DIFFICULTY

PVP

PVE

SIEGE

This class is average in 1v1 situations because of their low defenses and if caught with CC they will probably die. However, the Dark Knight is strong in 5v5s and large scale PvP due to their AoE and high burst and are considered “OP” due to this. It is a strong class to play but some players also find the animations too slow and can find her play style boring. It’s really down to the person and you find that you either love the class or hate it.

Check out the videos below to see some examples of the Dark Knight in action.

GENERAL



Kriegsmesser Training

[LMB]

This skill is automatically skilled into when you level up and is your auto attack. It is a low damage skill used for regenerating your mana or gathering up monsters.


Scarring Slash

[LMB] + [A] OR [D]

This skill allows you to strafe to the side whilst auto attacking. It will also spin up to 5 enemies so their back is facing you (not in PvP). It is a low damage skill that I don’t recommend putting points into.

 

iconSudden Attack
[LMB] after sprinting

This skill can be used after sprinting or while using Smoky Haze, by click [LMB]. On a successful hit it will knockback up to 5 targets. It is a low damage skill that I wouldn’t recommend putting points into.



Vedir’s Dogma

Quick Slot

Vedir’s Dogma is only available in your Quick Slot. It is a buff which will increase the skill effects of Kriegsmesser Training, Scarring Slash and Sudden Attack by 20%. Whilst the buff is active your mana will be drained by -20 every 3 seconds. If used again it will cancel the buff. This skill is something you will probably never use as the skill it effects are low damage and only really useful for regenerating your mana or in combos.



iconDark Shadow

[Q]

This skill is your block. When the block is used, your DP is increased by +12 for 10 seconds. You cannot move whilst blocking, this will cancel the skill. You can also cancel by pressing [Q] again.



iconSplit Second

[LMB] while using Dark Shadow

This skill can be used whilst you are blocking [Q] to hit up to 10 targets and inflict stiffness on them. It deals a low amount of damage but the CC can be very useful in PvP.


iconSpirit Satiation

(HOLD SHIFT) + (HOLD SPACE)

This skill can be channeled to recover your HP by +10 and mana by +30 at rank 1. It is optional whether or not you want to put extra points into it to increase the regeneration rate. 


iconSpirit Combustion

Passive

This skill is your passive and putting points into it will increase your Accuracy and Magic Attack Power. It is important to level up.

iconAwakening: Dark Knight
[C]

This skill allows you to swap between your main hand and awakening weapon

iconDominator
[E]

This skill can be used every 3 minutes to give you a 30 second buff, increasing your Attack Speed by 30%, Movement Speed by +30%, Critical Hit chance by 24% and Accuracy by 15%.


iconClearance of Welcome
[Q] > [LMB] while using Dark Shadow 

Clearance of Welcome can be used whilst blocking [Q] to sideways slash the enemy, inflicting stiffness and dealing high damage.


MOBILITY



icon
Evasion

(HOLD SHIFT) + [A] OR [S] OR [D]

This skill is your roll. You can roll to the sides or backwards. You can also double tap [W] to roll forwards, or double tap in any other direction. 


iconDusk

(HOLD SHIFT) + [A] OR [D]

This skill is your sideways dash. The skill has no collision and is also an iframe. It will recover a small amount of mana and at max rank it can be used twice.

iconSmoky Haze
(HOLD SHIFT) + [W]

This skill is your forwards dash. It is great for engaging as the skill gives you super armor and is also an iframe. Using the skill gives you a movement speed buff. It’s important to note that there is collision when using this skill.  

iconShadow Bullet
[RMB] + [A] OR [D]

This skill will strafe a short distance to the sides and unleash a projectile which can hit up to 7 targets. The skill does have low damage which is reduced in PvP, but it inflicts stiffness and also reduces the targets movement speed. This is a great crowd control skill, especially for PvP and it is optional whether or not to level it up for the extra damage if you have the skill points. Another important thing to note is that if you put points into Shadow Bullet: Air, you can jump [SPACE] then use the skill, and your character will become invisible whilst moving through the air.

iconNocturne
Quick Slot

This skill can only be used in your Quick slot but can be used in two different ways. Begin by using the skill on your hot bar, this will make your character temporarily vanish, you can then choose to use [W] to teleport behind your enemies back and attack, or [S] to move backwards and block. The skill does have low damage but can hit up to 7 targets, reducing their movement speed, attack speed and casting speed by -10% for 10 seconds.

iconBaby Federal Pitfalls
[S] + [F]

This skill will make your character jump backwards and unleash a ranged explosion in front of you. It has high damage, stuns the targets and also decreases the enemies evasion by -15% for 10 seconds.

iconScattering the Darkness
[SHIFT] + [LMB]

This skill will make your character leap backwards and unleash a high damaging explosion in front of them. The animation is similar to Baby Federal Pitfalls but the skills themselves are very different. Instead Scattering the Darkness will recover your mana by +10 for each hit, and deal extra magic damage as well as it’s base damage. The skill has a 100% Critical Hit chance. 

iconDusk of Sprint
[F]

This skill is your forwards dash when in awakening form. It will teleport you forwards then deal damage where you teleport to. The skill will recover your mana by +10 for each successful hit and also increase your movement speed by 10% for 10 seconds. It is a great skill to engage with, doesn’t have collision and will give you super armor whilst in use.

iconSpirit Hunting
[W] + [RMB]

Spirit Hunting will charge forwards a short distance and can be used as a gap closer. After the charge you will slash out on either side of you dealing damage to enemies around you and inflicting stiffness. Whilst using Spirit Hunting you also have super armor so it is a great skill for engaging and gap closing.

DAMAGE


iconUnveiled Dagger

[F]

Unveiled Dagger is a stabbing attack which can inflict stiffness if successful. It will give you an Attack Speed +10% buff for 5 seconds as well as apply bleeding damage -30 every 3 seconds for 9 seconds. The Attack speed, Stiffness and Bleeding Damage will not be applied if the skill is used whilst on cooldown, but the skill has a short cooldown of 3 seconds.


iconHidden Strike

[F] after using Unveiled Dagger

This skill is an extension of Unveiled Dagger and can be used after it by pressing [F] again. The skill will stun targets and deal high damage.


iconDarkness Burst

[RMB]

This skill is a low damage skill that I honestly wouldn’t bother putting any points into. You may even want to lock the skill to avoid conflicts with your other combos. The skill knocks back targets but not in PvP.


iconAir Strike

[W] + [F]

This skill is one of your more reliable crowd control skills. It has a chance of inflicting floating on the upward slash, and then bound on the downward slash. Whilst moving your character is also invincible. 


iconLuscious Snare

Quick Slot

This skill is a high damage skill that can hit up to 7 targets. Using the skill will mark the targets with an explosion, after 15 seconds the explosion will detonate and will stun and damage the targets if successful.


iconSlanted Balance (Optional)

[S] + [LMB]

This skill is an optional PvE skill that you may want to put points into if you have not yet got your awakening. The skill will inflict floating on a successful hit but it’s damage is reduced in PvP.

Pervasive Darkness (Optional)
[SPACE] in certain situations

This skill is an optional PvE skill that you may want to put points into if you have not yet got your awakening. The skill can be used whilst guarding [Q] to spin the enemy so that their back is facing you (not in PvP). It can also be used in other situations and will recover a small amount of mana on hit and decrease the enemies DP by -10 for 10 seconds. Damage is heavily reduced in PvP and if the skill is used whilst on cooldown spin effect, mana recovery and Dp decrease is not effective.


iconRavage Rake (Optional)

[LMB] + [RMB]

This skill is an optional PvE skill you can level up if you don’t have your awakening yet. It is a horizontal slash that can hit up to 7 targets and recover mana on each hit. You can also take the Flow version of the skill which changes the skill and can be used by holding [LMB] and [RMB]. It will knock back players (not in PvP) and can hit up to 10 targets. It does have high damage but it’s damage is heavily reduced in PvP.


iconRepeated Annihilation

[SHIFT] + [RMB]

I wouldn’t recommend putting any points into this skill. You may also want to lock this skill to avoid conflicts with your skill combos. It has average damage which is reduced when used on cooldown or in PvP.


iconEnforcement (Optional)

[RMB] + [S]

This skill is completely optional but I honestly wouldn’t recommend taking it unless you don’t have your awakening yet and have plenty of spare points. But I would recommend experimenting with this skill and deciding for yourself. The skill does inflict stiffness if successful and can hit up to 10 targets if you level it up fully. The ultimate and flow version also extends the skill and if you choose to take this skill I would recommend also taking both of these. The flow version in particular can be used by holding [RMB] and [S]. If successful and not used on cooldown, it will float the targets and deal extra damage.

iconLunacy of Vedir

Quick Slot

Lunacy of Vedir is your 100% Black Spirit Rage skill. It is a high damage skill which can hit up to 10 targets and also inflict bound if successful. The skill also has 100% critical hit chance and increased damage if used with 100% Black Spirit Rage. 


iconKamasylvia Slash

[LMB] + [SHIFT]

This skill is a high damage skill that has a short charge and will deal more damage and recover more mana if fully charged. If charged, the attacke range is also increased by 50%. While using the skill you will automatically block and if the hit is successful, a maximum of 10 targets will be knocked down.


iconWheel of Fortune

[F] + [SHIFT]

This skill is a high damage slash that will inflict floating on a maximum of 10 targets (fully leveled) if successful. Whilst the skill animation is in effect, your character will have super armor. The damage is slightly reduced in PvP but it is still a strong skill because of the super armor it gives you.


iconObsidian Ashes (Optional)

[E] + [SHIFT]

This skill is completely optional and I have seen it being taken by a lot of players as well as some of them even putting Skill Add-ons onto this skill.  I personally do not use it and wouldn’t recommend putting points into it unless you do not have your awakening yet and have the spare points. But I would recommend experimenting with this skill and deciding for yourself. This skill is your 200% Black Spirit Rage skill and will bound up to 7 targets if a hit is successful. The damage is reduced in PvP but it has 100% critical hit chance.

iconCorrupt Ground
[Q] + [SHIFT]

This skill stuns up to 7 targets all around you and also recovers quite a lot of mana and health. 


iconIntercepted Soul

[SPACE] in certain situations

This skill is a high damage skill that can be used in certain situations to deal additional damage. For example you can use it after Spirit Hunting by simply pressing [SPACE]. Intercepted Soul deals high damage, inflicts stiffness if successful and also recovers your mana by +10 for each hit. If used on cooldown, the stiffness and mana regen is not applied.


iconRush to Despair

(HOLD RMB)

This skill is a mid ranged skill which will cause your character to slowly step forwards and deal high damage in explosions over time. The enemy will have a movement speed reduction of -25% for 10 seconds if hit. This is not applied if the skill is used whilst on cooldown. 


iconHand of Resentment
[SHIFT] + [F]

This skill will deal damage to enemies directly in front of you and inflicting stiffness if successful. You will also recover +15 mana for each hit. 


iconSpecies of Disaster
[SHIFT] + [E]

This skill is your 200% Black Spirit Rage skill. It will deal damage to enemies directly in front of you and knock them down if successful. The skill has 100% critical hit chance and you also have super armor when using the skill.  


iconSpirit Oxide

[S] + [RMB]

This skill slashes twice and knocks down targets after the second slash if it hits. The skill has both sword damage and magic damage, as well as a 100% Critical Hit change. Damage is heavily reduced and knock down is not applied if the skill is used whilst on cooldown, but it has a short cooldown of 7 seconds (5 sec at max rank – level 59). 


iconSpirit of the Heritage

[SHIFT] + [LMB]

This skill is your 100% Black Spirit Rage skill. It will deal damage to enemies in front of you and has a 100% Critical Hit chance. If it successfully hits it’s targets, you will have mana regen +10 on each hit, the enemies DP will be reduced by -20 for 10 seconds, as well as them being stunned. If the skill is used on cooldown the stun effect will not be applied and damage will be reduced. 

iconExploitation of Hand
[S] + [LMB]

This skill deals 4 strikes at enemies immediately in front of you. The skill will recover your health for each successful hit and will also knock down the targets.. Using this skill whilst it is on cooldown will reduce it’s damage and the knock down effect will not be applied.

iconFlow: Rooted Disaster
[LMB] after Species of Disaster

Flow: Rooted Disaster can be used after Species of Disaster by pressing [LMB]. It has a 100% Critical Hit chance and also gives you super armor whilst moving. It’s important to note that there is no collision when moving backwards.

iconFlow: Spirit Oxide
[RMB] after Spirit Oxide

This skill can be used after Spirit Oxide by pressing [RMB]. It will deal an additional slash that has 100% Critical Hit chance and will also knock down the enemy if successful. Whilst using Flow: Spirit Oxide, you will have super armor.

iconFlow: Bombing
[LMB] after Scattering the Darkness

This skill can be used after Scattering the Darkness by pressing [LMB] to leap again and deal an additional high damage explosion. It has a 100% Critical Hit chance and deals both sword damage and magic damage. 

WEAPONS/ARMOR

The best weapons in the game are currently dropped from World Bosses.
For more information on this click here to view our World Bosses guide.

Primary Weapons:

icon Yuria or Rosar/Krea is what you should be aiming for to level your character or if you can’t afford Liverto. You should enhance it to +15 as soon as possible and you may want to make it ultimate (yellow) to close the AP difference.
icon Liverto is what you should be aiming for before Kzarka. You will want to upgrade it to +15 or higher as soon as possible. I would recommend getting it to TRI and then you really want to switch to Kzarka. The liverto has slightly more AP than Rosar/Krea, but it also has a Critical Hit Rate +3 item effect. 
icon Kzarka is the BiS main weapon for all classes. It has the same AP as the liverto but it has more accuracy and a Attack Speed +3 item effect.

Offhand Weapons:

The Ornamental Knot of Sealed Magical Power is what I would recommend if you are new because it gives accuracy and AP/DP. It is also given to you for free through Black Spirit quests. I would use this instead until you can get Saiyer or Oros.

iconSaiyer Ornamental Knot is a decent alternative if you don’t have Bheg’s gloves or Liverto/Kzarka because it gives accuracy. It is a good selection, especially for PvP orientated players. But once you have these you will want to swap to Oros or Kutum/Nouver.

iconOros Ornamental Knot is the best green grade offhand you can use. It will give you more AP as well as Evasion +1 an amage Reduction +3 but only has one crystal slot. It is a very “safe” option for both PvP and PvE.
icon Kutum Ornamental Knot gives a mixture of AP and DP. Which gives you more survivability. It gives a small accuracy boost and 10% ignore resistance. The higher AP makes this weapon a potential BiS if you want to go for a more defensive build. It also has 2 crystal slots.
icon Nouver Ornamental Knot is the BiS offhand in my opinion. The gives pure AP and an all resistance +10% item effect. If you find yourself above 250 AP when using the dagger then you may want to consider switching to Kutum instead for the survivability, but overall this is your “end-game” weapon.

Awakening Weapons: 

icon Dana Awakening Weapon is a green grade weapon which is sold by some Blacksmith/Arms dealers. This weapon has lower AP than the other options but it is still viable for PvE due to it’s Damage Against Every Species +5 item effect. It’s also much cheaper to enhance and repair max durability than the other options so if you don’t have a lot of money or participate in a lot of PvP, then this weapon is a good alternative until you get Dandelion.
icon Dana Awakening Weapon is a blue grade weapon which is given to you when you complete the awakening quests. The only ways to obtain this weapon is through the quest or night vendor. This makes is hard to obtain and it can be more expensive to repair. The sword is good for PvP and has higher AP than the Young Tree Spirit’s Sword, and it has a Damage Against Human +7 item effect.
icon Dandelion Awakening Weapon is the BiS awakening weapon. It has much higher AP but it is only obtainable from a Dandelion Weapon Box (Karanda world boss loot) or from the night vendor.

Armor:

The best armor in the game is currently dropped from Bosses. You will want to aim to get the boots and gloves first.
Giath’s Helmet (helmet) – dropped from Giath.
Hebetate Tree Spirit’s Armor (chest) – dropped from Hebetate Tree Spirit.
Bheg’s Gloves (gloves) – dropped from Bheg.
Muskan’s Shoes (shoes) – dropped from Monastery Leader.
The full set will give you Maximum MP/WP/SP +100, Maximum HP +300, Max Stamina +200, Accuracy +1 (increases with enhancement), Evasion +1 (increases with enhancement), Attack Speed +1, Casting Speed +1
In the mean time you should be using one of the following armor sets:

The are quite a few popular armor choices for Dark Knight. Some players like to go full Grunil set because it increases your maximum HP and will give you 2 socket slots on each piece, along with extra AP +7. Another advantage of using this set is that it is viable on any class, allowing you to swap to another class easily. This is a “safer” option.

Another popular alternative is to use 2 pieces of Grunil with 2 pieces of Heve. Using either Heve Chest and Heve Shoes with Grunil Helm and Grunil Gloves It offers a lot of HP and also the AP set bonus from Grunil. Heve also has 2 crystal slots on each piece so you will have a total of 8 slots to fill. Another bonus with using more than one set, is that it is a “smoother” transition when you switch to boss armor, as it only breaks one set bonus.

Finally, another alternative is to use 2 pieces of Rocaba with 2 pieces of Grunil. You want to use iconRocaba Chest and Grunil Gloves with Grunil Helm and iconRocaba Shoes. The Rocaba set bonus offers HP +75 and  MP/WP/SP +75. You also get the AP set bonus from Grunil. Rocaba also has 2 crystal slots on each piece so you will have a total of 8 slots to fill. Another bonus with using more than one set, is that it is a “smoother” transition when you switch to boss armor, as it only breaks one set bonus.

ACCESSORIES

There are a lot of choices available when it comes to accessories and it really depends on what you can get your hands on.


Earrings:

If available I recommend using the Jarette’s Earrings (Jarette Set) if you are new to the game, this gives you 4 AP. Otherwise use Bares earrings for 2 AP and switch to Witch’s Earring as soon as possible for the 5 AP.

You want to aim for DUO/TRI Witch’s Earrings (9 AP/11 AP) before swapping to a DUO Tungrade Earrings (11 AP) because of the huge difference in cost. Tungrade Earrings are your BiS earrings.

Red Coral Earrings are also a good alternative because they give accuracy and also have a bit of AP.

Enhancing a Bares Necklace is much cheaper than using an un-enhanced BiS necklace. You then want to swap to a DUO Serap’s or PRI Ogre/Tungrade.

The Manos Necklaces are also good for PvP due to their item effects.

You want to aim for a PRI/DUO Tree Spirit Belt before swapping to DUO Basilisk’s because it is much cheaper and easier to get hold of. Basilisk’s Belt is your BiS though.
