Information Gathering Thread of DK


22 posts in this topic

Posted

Not begging thread for dark knight release, but for information gathering. There are people want to try her, and people who already tried her on KR server who also want to main her. People who want to know how long they have to prepare for her. Information only. No "not again" bullcrap. If you are not helping others, then GTFO. Predictions, offical informations, or any other sources are welcome here.

The known thing about it is that it has a new mainhand, some sort of spellblade, and the same offhand as Berserkers, the Ornament knot thing so grab one of those if you want to play Dark Knight. They will sell like mad later.

The playstyle is aperently a mix between pre-awakened Musa and an awakened Warrior with slow but strong attacks, quick combos and long range spells.
Awakening is a short range to long range AoE damage with a lot of movements that Awakened ranger has, so to me it looks like a pre-awakened sorceress and an awakened ranger. (I could be wrong)

And they (as in community) think she will either come during February to EU/NA or early March. I hope she comes asap and is supposedly released with the Kamasylven patch.

Soonest I can see DK coming is at the very end of this month, but more than likely the end of next. These are my 2 predictions

  1. Will be released as a stand alone expansion. They have never released a new zone as well as new classes together before so don't expect that here. 
  2. They will release without their awakening weapon for at least 1 week (probably 2). This gives people more than enough time to get to 56 and above so everyone is on a level playing field for the title race.

I would like to know how much she have from a knight class - I means how tanky DK is. Or is she just next pure DPS class?

Almost pure DPS afaik. Can block but can't move and has some i-frames, that's it.

Thx, but I was think more about HP pool and base damage reduction and evasion.

If I were you I would expect less than a Valk. A few people told me DK is almost a pure glass cannon (not like wizards... they are just cannons) and yes, DK has really high damage but isn't a "knight" (unless you like the concept of a "YOLO knight" :P).

While I like the class, I would prefer a more tankier version with less burst damage but more DoT/curse/debuff reliant.

Well the skills dont seem slow to me tho... and the burst isnt that bursty... when i watch a DK streamer he cant burst someone as fast as a ranger... dont get me wrong I would like to play DK but it seems so hmm not competitiv except pve

ok, thx for the info.

To be honest, I expected something is wrong with this class since I saw awakening.

It is called dark knight. I expected something to replace valkyrie. No heals, no shield but still tanky, a bit more mobile and steal health. Not something what already exist, because it seems like next DPS and to be more specific a hard nerfed sorc.

"How long they have to prepare for her" You prepare for her like you do any other class... just upgrade the offhand (same as berserker) and wait for the mainhand to be released. What other prep do you need? Nobody knows exactly when its going to be released and Kakao never reveals that information unless its like a day or two before its released.

From rumors that I have seen floating around the net is the Dark Knight might be released on the 1st year anniversary in NA (early March) so maybe on March 1st or the 8th. What bigger way to celebrate than by releasing a new class? Again this is just a rumor but knowing Kakao it's believable.

Well, as far as I'm aware they aren't going to release the Dark Knight with the Kamasylvia stuff, but rather before it. It took about 6 months for us to get the Margoria content after KR got it, and the Kamasylvia stuff along with the Dark Knight was released in KR back in December. Based on the fact that the 7 Day Trial page has included the Dark Knight as 'coming soon', I'm fairly certain she'll release without the Kamasylvia content.

As for other information, it might be good to note that, as far as I've been able to gather, the Dark Knight is Attack Speed and Melee Damage, though I'm not entirely certain if this holds true still with the Awakening or not, I only recall this from a conversation had on Reddit and it was before the Awakening was released for her.

The burst comes with the awakening, it is a kinda high burst that can deal pretty good damage. And I didn't say the skills were slow, I said they were fast but her normal attacks were slow ;)

They do want to catch up so we should get a faster release than KR, and then hopefully that she is released this month, if so at the end of it.

I could see use getting the Dark Knight this month or next month, with Kamasylvia coming in April after being announced with the 1 year anniversary stuff. I don't think we'll get it 'this' soon after the KR release though even with them pushing for the NA/EU to get caught up with the KR releases. Overall content wise we were 6 months behind, if being generous, whereas with the classes we're only about a month or two behind at most. Kamasylvia will most like, as a result, come within about 3-4 months after the KR release of it, putting us at receiving it around March/April.

Kamasylvia will be "early this year", and the DK released before Kamasylvia in KR.  I'm expecting it sometime in February.  I hope we get a week's notice because I have a name/slot saved for mine.

Here's a good video of someone PvPing with an awakened DK:

Having played Awakened DK myself, this guy seems like the only one yet who understands her how to play her from all of the videos I've watched.  It isn't hard, it's just different from what people are used to so they don't know how to go about it, and end up going back to their main class (understandably, as picking up a new class and 'mastering it' to the point where you're comfortable isn't easy, especially if it's just an alt you rushed up to 56 and haven't even unlocked all of their skills).

AFK, meanwhile, is very great at it imho.  One of the best yet.

She actually flows amazingly, having played both Sorc and Kunoichi I'm surprised at how fluid she feels to play with awakening.  It isn't like anything I've experienced with Sorceress/Kunoichi/Witch.  I can't imagine how smooth the gameplay feels after you get to 58+!  I'm really excited for her, definitely going to main her when she comes out.  She's very underestimated, in my own opinion.

(Trying to get my hands on a Kzarka Box, Dande Box, and Kutum Box (or Kutum Ornamental Knot off the MP!).  No such luck yet, but I do have almost 50 Kutum Auras, so... almost halfway there to one of the goals.)

BTW, the awakening itself is the gauntlet, not the swords.  In awakening there are two modes that switch based on what attacks you do, the two-swords mode, and the double-handed sword mode.  Each of these modes have separate dye channels.  So for instance, you can have a bright blue two-handed sword in awakening mode, and then red floaty swords.  The gauntlet itself also has its own dye channels.

Also, here are the Green and Blue awakening weps.  I don't have a dande (obviously) in KR, hoping to get one in NA/EU!

Oh man, afk is back! You should've seen that guy back in the early days of KR; he was taking on entire guilds of people with his Eva Tamer, lol. Of course that was back with +15s and before Eva and Human Damage were nerfed, but still, top-level player right there.

Is there any Pearl Store outfits for the Dark Knight yet, by the way? Or any place where we can see them if there is?

Release Armor, Awakening Armor, and then the generic ones:  Maid Outfit, Treant Outfit, Desert Camouflage, etc.  She also has Karlstein, the Hanbok, and the Snowflake outfit.

KR's updating tonight, maybe we'll see more stuff ported over to her.  (Or maybe some new unique outfits?  It's a reach, I know.)

KR got the Valentine's outfit today.  (We actually got that one before them!)  Looks like it's (obviously) on Dark Knight:

She will be coming in March:
