Promotes to: General or Great Knight

The Knight is a slow class with very limited movement (five tiles compared to the standard six or seven), but has really great Defense (bad Resistance though) that allows you to use them to lure in melee enemies so you can blitz them safely, or pair up in guard stance to boost a weaker unit’s Defense.

Natural Cover is especially useful in maps where the terrain can do things like inflict passive damage, to give you that extra bit of survivability. Use the Knight’s greatest strengths and you will find it to be a very useful, if somewhat niche, class. Upgrading to General will only continue to capitalize on that and offer even more useful skills to add to your arsenal.
