    Sacred Knight: a little disappointment

    Today, almost 20 days after new patch, I finally got all 3 Eudaemons of different classes. I feel gratified I got them and didn't get any duplicates. A first look at the Sacred Knight, however, seemed to have led to disappointment.

    Like the other 2 Eudy classes, the Sacred Knight has a subset of the regular knight skills, plus the Eudy delphics and general passives. Not to my surprise, the rings & jewelries boost PDEF & Block so it resembles the stats of a knight. But surprisingly, it does not have block heal. Sanctuary Hunter has crit heal capped at 4k per trigger while Sacred Knight does NOT have block heal capped at 3k per trigger? Wow that is...surprisingly not-so-awesome. As for the rest, the delphic is a bit weak for a knight, given that knight delphics are typically above 300% while this one starts at only a little above 200%.

    Since I'm a knight I don't expect to use her much, but still...a little disappointed. Any other thoughts?

    it's random luck so if we take out all but SS or puri & the basic skill then it's likely a useful bet. it's like having Haunt on Gaia or Ice Armor on Triton but use the sylph in AFK mode or sylph arena. the debuffs don't always come at the right time, but at least there's a chance to happen.

    Eudies aren't tanks but they need to survive for long enough to be useful. The crit heal ability is what a real archer WANTS but does NOT have (a really amazing skill that I crave for!!!). Plus the extra HP from rings, my hunter eudy lasts way longer than my knight eudy with same level. knight eudy gets extra PDEF from rings but no extra HP from gears, and HP conversion rate is not higher than the hunter, so she ends up with less HP than the hunter, combined with the lack of self-healing ability, she can't help much in PvE & the only outstanding PvP advantage is interception, which doesn't help much at a low level (only -10 rage) & she can't last for long enough to use it a second time. I want her to help in arena & TOK, & hopefully she could do the non-damage things that I don't want to do (I don't shield much), but for now, I guess she simply can't last for long enough to help with that.

    it really stinks that we can't have SS & puri on the eudies, which are the not-so-much-counted (no damage) skills/runes that we don't want to carry on our skill bar. well...maybe they are just too useful to have lol

    The Sacred Knight's strengths are:
    • Delphic that Stuns (my Eudaemon has 1540 Influence and stuns pretty much anyone)
    • Rage-Draining Intercept
    • AoE Damage Reduction


    Eudaemons are not meant to take hits so I wouldn't sweat missing out on a 3k Block-Heal at this point. The Eudaemons don't get to benefit from things like our DR Talent (14% DR we all have), Goddess Blessing Astrals (+35%+ DR) and things like Deter / EWD - which effectively gimps their damage by half or worse. Eudaemon are support troops, and keeping your expectations for them as such should help to keep you happy.

    I wouldn't trade my Sacred Knight for PvP purposes. The stun won me at least 2 fights against superior BR players in the CW finals.

    However, I really do want a Battle Oracle for PvE. I want to be able to not carry Sunto and have a triggered BL on standby, not to mention free Damnation. So far I have not been lucky as I've pulled nothing but Sacred Knights (3x).

    Now imagine the sacred knights that are built on mage stats - a knight with the physical defense and hit points of a mage! ... the "developers" do not give a damn about anything but selling items.

    eh, knight eudaemon is better than archer imo. it's delphic has a chance to stun, and compared to mage it has better damage (120% at lvl 1)

    Personally I think the game would be better without them, far to much junk to collect already, far to many tasks - only 24 hours in a day ffs.

    i still kinda can't choose between archer & mage but since i'm not using it for real purpose now (basically not doing any runs) so i took the cuter-looking archer.
