During their golden age, the mysterious order of dark knights fought for the protection of the citizens of MU. But those times have long since passed. Due to many wars the order was torn apart. Now the dark knights have become mercenaries to promote their own gain. Some have wandered the land in order to hone their skill to perfection, while others continue to try and bring justice to a time of pain and suffering. But one thing is certain; the dark knights of MU are sights too see pitched in battle.
The Dark Knights are the embodiment of strength and power. In close combat, they can deliver deadly attacks while taking more damage that would kill any other class. Due to their excellent combat abilities and high number of hit points, Dark Knights can venture out alone without much problem. He can wear different types of armors and can use a wide variety of melee weapons from swords and axes to spears. The skills of the Dark Knight do not eat up as much mana as compared to the skills from other classes. This makes energy a low priority among Dark Knights.

Tips & Tricks
Although the Dark Knight uses strength to increase damage there is another way to make him even more powerful. A lot of players forget that Energy increases skill damage. Instead of spending all your points on Strength, try to spend some of them on Energy. It will increase your skill damage with 1% for every 10 points and also will improve your Greater Fortitude ability and will increase your mana points and stamina points. Energy is a very important stat for the Dark Knight and should not be left low.
Since the Dark Knight is a melee class character it is obvious that a ranged class character will have the first hit from distance. Usualy the Fairy Elf freezes the Dark Knight with her Ice Arrow skill and finishes him off before he can reach her. A good way to protect yourself while frozen is to have an equipped shield with the Defend Skill which greatly reduces the damage you take.
