The Dark Knight Lore

Touched by the darkness that once consumed the universe, the Dark Knight is a formidable champion of evil whose battle prowess and unholy might instills fear within the bravest of warriors. Having trained in the dark arts recorded within the forbidden martial Tome of Myraxys, these knights have exchanged their souls for the powers of the void to be used in their evil endeavors within the world of Terminus. 

What is a Dark Knight?

The Dark Knight is a leader highly skilled in combat who takes charge on the front line. They’re seen wearing dark plate armor and thrive in the use of two-handed great swords, long swords, shields, and axes. Though there have been cases where they have used other types of weaponry such as maces, spears or lances. The Dark Knights have the ability to blend in the shadows, manipulate them to attack their foes or even summon sentries of shadow to protect and fight for them.

Dark Knights have also been known to practice in the arts of necromancy. They use these dark magics to instill fear, inflict pain and raise the dead to serve them. They are notorious for siphoning energies and life forces from their enemies causing great weaknesses while strengthening themselves, though there have been cases where they apply disease to their victims.

Dark Knights adhere to the law of their dark gods. They are not chaotic but keep discord in check. Though the Dark Knight code stays in line with delivering unholy judgment regardless of the hero essence they are bound with. It is wise to avoid the touch of the Dark Knights hand as it may lead to a hateful curse, agonizing pain or death. Dark Knights are formidable as they continue to expand fear and darkness across Terminus in the name of their lords.

      This makes me so happy, this was my main class in EQ1 and EQ2 and it sounds just like the original SK which imo was better than the EQ2 SK. The only thing I didnt hear is the ability to Feign Death, here is hoping that is an ability! Other than that I love hearing that SK pets will be there also, I hated how EQ2 made them just a crappy summon spell dot that poofed after a minute. Even if my pet was weak in EQ1 I used him all the time.

      This is my type of class right here. Sweet emblem design too!

      That emblem is all kinds of badassery. It's buy a shirt with that square on the chest. (Hint hint)

      Creator Caeleste on January 21

      I love the description and I'm really excited about it but I really don't care for the name. It's very cheesy/Batman sounding. I know it's a silly thing to critique, but it's just a strange name.

      There's my class.

      Too late Josh Wolf, I already called it

      This is awesome! But it would have been nice to include a few hints about its provisional mechanics such as skeleton pet, harm touch, feign death, incorporeality, etc.

      Love it :)

      Good to see I won't have a tough decision to make on what class to play!

      I'm freaking out. This is amazing. Sounds so similar to EQ1 Shadowknight and that makes me very happy!
