Faithful Guardian of Light, New Class ‘Holy Knight’ Appears

The new Warrior sub-class ‘Holy Knight’ has been added.

  • Holy Knights have a ‘Trail of Light’ effect that stacks separately from the buff effect stacking rules.
    ※ The ‘Trail of Light’ effect does not overlap with the ‘Stige’ effect of Bard class.

Holy Knight is a support type class that uses the sword and the power of faith.
Use your Holy Divine skills and buffs to support your allies from behind, or use the sword punishment skills to lead the battlefield.

Identity: Divine Executioner, Divine Aura
Weapon used: One-handed Sword

Holy Knights can use their Faith Gauges available during battles to strengthen their swords or to increase their party’s combat abilities.

If you use the God’s Executioner identity skill, you can concentrate the power of faith on your sword to increase the attack range and damage with the sword. If you use the Aura of Divinity identity skill, you can spread an aura around you, and the combat abilities of party members(except you) will be increased.

The ultimate skill(awakening) is called “Alisanos’ Judgement“, it holds the power of Alisanos, an ancient crusader, transformed into a powerful skill by the Holy Knight.

Holy Knight is a great addition to Lost Ark and it will balance out encounters.
