Knights were always very popular in Doncaster - the capital of diversity. Their protective nature, which is independent of races, languages, or views, has always been looked at as their best feature. They were always first to protect the ones in need and to rush into the battle. It made them known as the most glorious and noble of all people who live in a world of Bloodstone.
The general concept of the Knight class
As a Knight, you will always be the first one to rush into a fight. A very high health pool and enormous defense will let you survive a lot of damage - protecting your allies and letting them take down enemies as you shield them from harm. With a great number of defensive abilities, you will be able to defend yourself for a very long time, and the longer you will be able to survive, the more time you party members will have to deal damage. If you combine amazing defensive capabilities of a Knight with the healing of a Shaman, you can get an ultimate line of defense. With that, you will be able to take your party onto much harder monsters with better loot and higher experience gains. It is why Knights are always much needed for every party.

Knight class skills
Below you can find short descriptions for all of the skills available for the Knight class in the game. Some of them can be leveled beyond Level 1, while others have only one step of advancement.
Two main build types
Two paths can lead you to success as a Knight in Bloodstone: The Ancient Curse. You should pick one of them and focus on it as training in all fields at once will make you only average at everything. What you want to achieve is to be the best at something so you will pick between a solo build and one for party gameplay. If you wish to change your mind, later on, you will be able to do it with a forgetfulness scroll. If you haven’t got a group of friends to play with continually, we strongly advise you to go with a solo build at the beginning.
With this build, you will become a powerhouse that can survive almost anything. You want to support your allies and block all incoming damage that you can, so you will be taking a lot of supportive and defensive skills at the cost of your attack and offensive abilities. Below you can find the skill progression which shows you what to take from the beginning to endgame levels.
First Aid > Precise Cut > Recovery > Unbeatable Armor > Piercing Strike > Speed Increase > Martyr > Horizontal Cut > Tease > Target Protection > Unbeatable Armor (Lv. 2) > Recovery (Lv. 2) > Hostile Blade > Target Protection (Lv. 2) > Precise Cut (Lv. 2) > Martyr (Lv. 2) > Refraction
With these skill choices, you should be able to withstand tremendous amounts of incoming damage and recover health quickly during and after the fight. You also have some of the best protective abilities that can help you save your allies from incoming harm.
As a lone rider, you will have to focus on both offensive and defensive skills as you will not only need to sustain incoming damage but also wound your opponents to take them down. With a class that you have chosen, don’t expect very high numbers when it comes to damage. On the bright side, you will have a considerable amount of health and a great defense, so your gameplay will be slow but steady. Here is a skill progression for solo players.
First Aid > Precise Cut > Recovery > Unbeatable Armor > Piercing Strike > Speed Increase > Iron Body > Wind Cut > Defending Spirit > Crushing Shield > Unbeatable Armor (Lv. 2) > Recovery (Lv. 2) > Invocation of Swords > Leech Blade > Hostile Blade > Rain of Swords
This skill build lets you keep up with other classes in terms of damage and train at a faster pace than you usually would. It focuses mainly on taking damaging abilities that are necessary to quickly take down large groups of monsters at the same time.
How to train skills
Most of your skills will be trained along with your regular leveling. On top of that, you can let your friend tank a mob for you while you will be dealing damage to it with a weak weapon (like Wooden Sword). You can also do it by yourself if you are strong enough to both tank and deal damage, but keep in mind that stronger monster you are against - the more AFK your training will be. Enemies with a high health pool take more hits before falling, and that means that you will receive more experience while training on them. In general, you will gain experience for hitting a monster even if it misses as long as you can deal damage to it once in a while. It means that you want to wound your opponent but never quickly kill it.
As you can see, Knight is the most durable of all classes available in the game. It makes him the perfect fit for the tanking purpose. High Health, great Physical Defense, and outstanding Magical Protection combined with a wide variety of protection skills is what makes Knights a safe class to play.
