The Knight is a Cadaver enemy in Darkest Dungeon II.

Description[ | ]

Clad in impressive plate armor, Knights are the elite shock troops of the Lost Battalion. Their skillset takes advantage of their large health pool, allowing them to generate Dd2 token block and Dd2 token riposte to discourage attackers, while inflicting heavy Bleed dd2 Bleed damage on frontline heroes.

Death's Door Bonuses[ | ]

Uniquely amongst enemies, the Knight gains powerful buffs when on Deathsdoor dd2 Death's Door:

  • +50% DMG
  • +5 Icon speed, sufficient to negate the Death's Door Icon speed speed penalty
  • The Knight does not gain any Dd2 token weak tokens upon reaching Deathsdoor dd2 Death's Door.

And if all those buffs weren't enough, the Knight also has a 75% Deathsdoor dd2 deathblow resistance, making him a very dangerous opponent when near death.
