Dissidia Fighter Job Change

The Knight (ナイト, Naito?) is a job that appears in various games in the series. It is generally an upgrade to the Warrior and has similarities to Paladins.

ProfileEdit

The Knight job is generally seen as an upgrade to the Warrior, but lacks the strict offensive focus of the job, gaining supportive abilities.

Knights are characterized by equipping swords, daggers, knight swords, shields, and heavy armor, and having high physical stats. Knights normally appear clad in heavy armor and battle circlets. A Knight can use Cover to protect his team, as well as low-rank White Magic.

Overtime, within the development of the series, several variations on the Knight job have emerged, taking on various fields of specialty and playing on its hybridization of roles.

  • Paladins are holy-aligned knights with greater defensive and supportive abilities, functioning essentially as a higher level Knight.
  • Dark Knights are the opposites of Paladins, wielding dark magic and forsaking defense and health for powerful attacks and offensive positions.
  • The Mystic Knight can imbue his blade with both White and Black Magic to attach status and elemental effects to his attack.
  • Dragoons, or "Dragon Knights", wield spears and use Jump skills.

The Knight job card reappears in the new Labyrinth mode, and increases the card selection area by one while in effect.

The Warrior of Light's new alternate outfit as a Warrior's EX Mode is based on the original Final Fantasy incarnation of the Knight.

The Knight is also an advanced job that can be selected for a character in the player's party for Quick Battle, Friend Cards, or wireless matches. As an advanced job, the Knight is unlocked by an earlier character passing along the Warrior or White Mage job to the next party member with the other job. The Knight grants +2 ATK and DEF.

Knights are balanced in offense and defense and specialize in defensive abilities that can be used for guarding. Their initial usable equipment types are swords and pavises, though they can equip Bucklers as well. Knight's are proficient in sword skills and thus, have a lower load as a result. Their unique ability is Provoke, which increases malice in enemies in an area around the Knight (making enemies more likely to attack them).[1]
