Knight is a creature class. The first knights, White Knight and Black Knight appeared in Alpha.

Description[edit | edit source]

Knights are highly-trained combatants who are usually part of a formal army or cavalry, usually specializing in fighting on horseback with a sword or lance. Most knights, especially those aligned with white or black, are pledged to a single lord or order, though many black and most red knights are devoted only to themselves. First strike is the most common ability found among Knights. Some Knights have double strike, flanking, and protection, a few knights ride steeds with flying as well.

Some knights, called "paladins", channel mana in a way similar to Clerics. Paladin was originally a separate creature type from Knight, but the two were later combined under the latter. The subtypes Cavalry (Moorish Cavalry) and Crusader (only used for Aysen Crusader) were changed to Knight as well.
