Dark Knight Gameplay & Skill Demo

33 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey everyone, I played around with the Dark Knight on the Korean servers for a few hrs and recorded some gameplay footage as well as a demonstration of most of the skills incase anyone is curious what the class feels like. Enjoy!

Gameplay is of Level 35 but I think I unlocked most skills so the high level ones shouldn't feel much different.

thanks for the video ( but skill camera shake is damn horrible )

That's kinda what i was afraid of, it look like a plum thing, with very few skill so poor "gameplay diversity".

 

Will still try it, tho, but well i'am definitely not insanely hyped.

You can turn the camera shake down.  Or completely off.  I have it set very very low on my Valk.

 

Thanks for the vid, Dulfy :)

Any word on if this will be hitting NA soon? Might give me a reason to come back.

Was she released with awakening already finished? If not chances are she's not worth playing at all for 6+ months unless you really want/like the class.

Yeah, I dont get why they use that release pattern. Really kills the interest in a new class. There's no coincidence that wiz, witch, kuno and ninja are on the bottom in terms of popularity in Korea. They where the last 4 classes to come out(prior to dark elf) and they had to wait between 8-12 month for awakening.

Sure they give some pre-awakened buffs to newer classes, with added multipliers, to compete better. But still no way near the strength and power you get on any awakened class at higher levels. If they make the same mistake with dark elf, no one will play it as main for a very long time.

Depends, really. You won't see them often in competitive areas, but this class actually looks fun to me. I loved my Sorc because of the mobility and the self-healing and this seems to bring that together in a more tolerable pre-Awakening state in which I'd actually enjoy playing.

People are speculating March or whatever, but I have a feeling it'll be closer to the summer before we see her. May/June is my prediction, since it was said at some point the goal was for us to be around six months behind Korea once it's all said and done. I do hope I'm wrong since I'm really liking the class from what I've seen.

I logged into KR for the first time since last December and they gave me a free +15 zarka and awakening weapon box... that awkward moment when you have boss weapons on a lvl 12 character meanwhile your 58 sorc on local servers still has Tri blues...

Well, at least they've realized how much of an issue they caused with their wonky "balance"

ez ketchup mechanic in KR while the norm is tet gear. Still pretty cool to have for them. And your time will come soon enough on your local server :D

I know, i was speaking about that in the video

thoses guys and their "catch up" mechanic...

 

I mean, if in the first place they had setup nice progression curve ( gear - lvl )   they wouldnt be in need of such stuff.

Not saying, doing that often "gear give away" its already pretty much saying : " yes our system is sh#t and a pain in the a**, so we help boost everyone"

 

All that to say, i would rather NEVER have "free gear" BUT have a smoother gear progression instead ( so quit that RNG alienating plague ) at least we would have more chance to have more interesting gameplay to get the gear instead of the current pointless gambling crap.

 

Thoses devs clearly did wonderfull thing on that game, but when it come to progression - balance and somes other things, they are just terribad.

lmao, that short skill/gameplay demo did a way better job of presenting the class than the teaser/trailer.

One question though, is that your maximum combat speed? do you have att. and cast speed on 5? I hope no, because she is too slow :( And that doesnt even make any sense, because swords are AFAIK designed to have their mass center somewhere around the handle, so the weight is closer to the body which makes spinning and slashing a lot faster. Also according to wikipedia, a real great sword weighs around 2- 3.2 kilogramms. That's nothing that cant be dealt with a little bit of daily weight lifting.

ugly sword, ugly character, ugly armor and ugly gender locked race! We need a badass male exclusive class before this game turns into another Tera 2.0

I saw streamed video where it seemed much faster so it could be that OP is playing without speed modifying gear/skills.  I also heard they have a skill to greatly increase speed but I will have to double check on that.

It seems kinda slow. I really hoped it was going to be a more speedy 2-handed class while Warrior's awakening was the slow 2-hander.

There's really nothing about it that screams "Dark Knight" in my opinion.
