Shadowknight Links
A Shadowknight and his undead minion square off against a spiderkin soldier.

The Shadowknight is one of the three Tank classes available in Shards of Dalaya, alongside the Warrior and his holy cousin, the Paladin. The Shadowknight proves different in having the fastest and strongest single target hate generation available via their Terror line of spells. His signature ability is Harm Touch dealing an instant large amount of damage, with upgrades available later to make it unresistable or drain life.

While Paladins may bring healing to the table, a Shadowknight drains life, hurting their enemies and healing the Shadowknight at the same time. They also travel with an undead minion that adds some damage as well as allowing the knight to manipulate their minion for some spectacular effects. The Shadowknights ability to sap the strength of their enemies through damage over time, stat drains and debuffs should not be underestimated. Shadowknights are one of very few classes that can use the very valuable Feign Death spells and abilities, but one must not discount the self utilities at the Shadowknights disposal including: invisibility to the undead and the living, levitate and water breathing.

If you like tanking without fear of losing Aggro, maximizing your teams DPS, and the fun and utility that comes with having high hp, ac, and Necromancer spells, then the Shadowknight is the class for you.
