Dark Knight


The Dark Knight, not to be confused with the Caped Crusader, is a popular class in many role playing games. This build is meant to capture the essence of playing one from some of the more well-known interpretations of it as seen in several Final Fantasy games. With an emphasis on pure-Hex magic and a Dark-infused Scythe, high HP, and moderate stamina, the Dark Knight should be a strong pick for PVE and PVP fans alike. These stats reflect the build using the Scythe of Nahr Alma: adapt it as necessary for use with either of the alternative weapons. Additional levels should be spent on increasing Vigor or Strength/Dex for higher damage scaling.
