— Game description.

Knight (ナイト) is a class in 7th Dragon.

OverviewEdit

Knights are considered tanks as they have the highest DEF in the game, coupled with decent ATK. They can reduce attacks from enemies, nullify attacks towards them, increase DEF and resistance, and even take damage in place of a party member. They can also heal, but because of their small MANA pool, they are unfit for it (unless there is a Healer or Princess that can provide MANA, who also ironically can provide better heals). Knights has a very important field skill, Walk Safe (ウォークセーフ) that is considered mandatory for many parties, especially those who lack heals. Their one-handed swords deals slashing damage.

StrategyEdit

Whatever type of Knight you pick, Walk Safe should be at utmost priority. Shield Knights need shields, so if plan on building it immediately in the early game, you must buy a Buckler (バックラー) in Mylos in order for them to function. Shield Knights and Provoke Knights can be very SP intensive.

  • Shield Knights uses Shield skills to reduce the damage taken to the whole team immediately. There are 2 different Shield skills for physical damage reduction: Front Shield (フロントシルド) and Back Shield (バックシルド). As the names allude, Front Shield protects the front row whereas Back Shield protects the back row. They also have 3 elemental Breaks, which reduces the damage of specific elemental attacks for whole party, and the EX skill Ultima Guard (アルテマガード), which raises the party's resistance by 25% to all kinds of damage (except from non-elemental) for 3 turns. Breaks are useful even at level 1, so you can just pick all 3 at level 1.
    Shield Knights consumes the lowest MANA out of all defensive Knights. However, their usefulness is dependent on your party formation: a Shield Knight wouldn't be very useful if your party have 2 front and 2 back. They do have a react skill, Guard React (ガードリアクト), but is rather unreliable.
  • Provoke and Parry Knights uses Provoke (挑発), Parrying (パリング) and Mana Parrying (マナパリング) to nullify attacks hurled towards them. These Knights are very effective against bosses and dragons that uses regular attacks often. Provoke is not reliable at level 1, so max it as fast as you get it; same goes to Parrying and Mana Parrying. This type of Knight is very MANA expensive so you might want a Healer or a Princess who can restore MANA. Provoke and Parry Knights' biggest weakness are that they can't protect the party against full-party attacks. To cover this, you can level up Shield skills if you think it is necessary.
  • Provoke and Retaliate Knights uses Guard React combined with Parrying and Mana Parrying to receive extra turns. This type is like a upgraded version of Provoke and Parrying. The advantages with this type is that the Knight can both protect and attack at the same time. If you have a Princess, you can give her some extra turns and use Save the Queen!. However, there are some disadvantages:
    • This Knight still cannot protect the party from full-party attacks.
    • This Knight is more MANA and SP expensive than the normal type.
  • Defense Knights buffs the party with Defense Shift (ディフェンスシフト). Defense Shift lasts for 10 turns and is a slightly better buff than the Princess' Solid Rhyme. It raises the party's DEF by 30% at max level. This Knight is good if your party do not need much protection. This Knight also is not SP intensive, so you can mix this build with other builds, commonly Guardian or Provoke type because they already have Guard Mastery. Another alternative would be to go a more offensive route. Late game, with enough SP, you can even make a combination of Defense/Offensive/Guardian type.
  • Guardian Knights are simple and useful. Guardian (ガーディアン) is a skill that takes all damage in place of all party members under 50% LIFE (including the Knight themselves) and slightly reduces the damage the Knight takes. This type is worth gold for Punishment Princesses, who relies on having as low LIFE as possible, but can at the same time be very risky. If your Knight dies the rest will stand under 50% LIFE, which can end badly. You might want to level up Defensive Arts (防御体術) and Clenching (クレンチング) to combat this. Like Defense Knights, this type can be mixed up with other types.
  • If you feel like your party does not need much protection, there is the Offensive Knight. Offensive Knights level up Chivalry Mastery (騎士道マスタリー) to max for the damage boost and your main attack will be Knight Blade (ナイトブレード). If you have a Princess, you can also use Save the Queen!. A single level on Knight Fury (騎士の憤怒) never hurts either. You can take Shield Punish (シルドパニッシュ) if you want, but is far more SP and MANA expensive.

EtymologyEdit

A knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch, bishop or other political leader for service to the monarch or a Christian Church, especially in a military capacity. As a character class, they are patterned after the fictionalized chivalric image of a holy warrior in shining armor from the high middle ages or renaissance period.
