A dark knight with shadow swipe active while standing in blood vortex.

Dark Knights are grim beings which suck the life force out of you, slowly but surely. They use dark magic to blot out the light and fill Zodiac with terror. They mainly use Swords and Scythes to enhance their tankability, castability, or melee abilities. At higher levels, they can rip your soul apart, or explode the infected. A Dark Knight's worst enemy is a Seraphic Paladin, constantly at war. Dark Knight's trademarks are forcing targets into a deep sleep, infecting people, and chills to keep the Dark Knight close enough to burst. Dark Knights are extremely dangerous.

Dark Knight is derived from Level 10 Warrior and Level 10 Necromancer.
