Weapons: Knives, Swords, Dark Blades
Dark Knights, similar to Warriors, Vikings, and Knights, are powerful melee users whose signature weapons, dark blades, carry the additional advantage of being super effective on enemies capable of dividing (which appear frequently towards the end of the game and are incredibly annoying). Their special ability, Souleater , cuts 10% of their HP in exchange for doing a powerful attack on all enemies. Plus, it’s unaffected by the back row! If you pair a Dark Knight with a White Mage/Devout or a Bard, you can constantly heal so that you can spam Souleater, which at a high job level packs a big punch. On top of that, Dark Knights have access to very powerful endgame armor and gear, particularly where dark blades are concerned. Like the Dragoon, they are reliable, sturdy powerhouses.
