Crowfall has been a very busy MMO, especially with its crowdfunding campaign that is still ongoing. But the team is still dedicated to giving you new information about things you want, and yesterday they revealed some changes on one of their character archetypes with the Knight.
The difference with the Knight is that they have tweaked how the archetype plays. Mainly, the Knight has a single resource pool, and all of its skills are used to both generate and consume stamina, of which the Knight has a lot of, but uses up a lot too.
They’ve also tweaked the gameplay of the Knight, such as with blocking. Now, a block will only drain your stamina bar a little if you’re not being attacked. But in contrast, if you take a hit while blocking, your stamina will take a hit too. Also, if you take damage, you’ll be able to use a new feature called the Shield Bash.
Shield Bash can be used on the move, it deals damage to a target, it can trigger a Daze effect, it applies a new debuff type that’ll prevent the opponent from dodging, and it’ll land a critical hit should your opponent have already been hit with a Shield Bash attack.
Add that to the increase in damage, and remove of penalties that the Knight had, increased animations with its longsword, and other small features, and the Knight is going to be an archetype you’re going to want to keep your eye on in Crowfall. For the full breakdown of the Knight, click here.
