Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

Magic Knight

By

Portrait Description
Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Screenshot Sword masters that also know how to use magic. Only a handful of them exist in the Netherworlds. Although they are demons, they have a strong sense of loyalty and will die if they break a sword oath. It’s said that they can see the future using a power called the Zone.

In order to unlock the Magic Knight, you will need both a Rank 3 Fighter and a Rank 3 Mage. The Magic Knight is a melee unit that will work on exposing elemental weaknesses of enemies. Their unique Evility, Elemental Force, reflects their elemental resistances onto their elemental attacks. Basically, the higher their resistances, the stronger their elemental attacks will be. Thus, you should build a Magic Knight around their elemental resistances, teaching them all of the elemental spells, too. They are great with both a sword and staff, but it might be better to stick with a sword. You see, the Magic Knight’s unique skills are elemental versions of the sword skills, with her learning them as you learn the weapon mastery skills. So, you need to use a sword to learn those skills.

Evilities

The Magic Knight’s unique Evility, Elemental Force, reflects their resistance value onto their elemental attacks. This essentially means the higher the Magic Knight’s resistance, the more powerful their attacks will be. Since the Magic Knight starts with good Fire/Water/Wind resistances, an almost full stack of the elemental Innocents will be enough to max them out and make all of their elemental attacks deal maximum damage. Elemental Rise will increase all of the resistances, except for star, by 25%. This is great to have while going through the story, but once you get a full stack of the elemental Innocents, this is useless. For other classes, though, it can still be good.

Mana Blade will make it so 20% of the user’s INT will be added to the attacking power when using a normal attack. Honestly, this sounds like a good Evility, but units with high INT will probably be using skills a lot more than normal attacks. Oracle Sword will have the unit recover 5% of their max SP when attacking normally. Again, this isn’t bad for the beginning portions of the game, but once you reach the later stages, SP won’t be much of a factor. Spirit Protection is similar to Elemental Rise, except it gives 10% resistances to allies, except for star. Spirit Gun adds the element of the unit’s highest resistance to a non-elemental attack. This requires a high elemental build, which will probably be a Magic Knight, and they will likely always be using elemental attacks.

Evility Slots Effect Req

Mana Blade 3 Increases attack when attacking normally by 20% of INT, with a sword equipped Rank 3 Magic Knight

Spirit Protection 4 Increases resistances of all allies on map to all elements except star by 10% Rank 5 Magic Knight
