Knights are a basic fighting class. They can wield swords, wear heavy armor and shields. In the beginning of the game they are a staple fighter and when equipped with their broadswords they wreak havoc on lower level bosses. Since they cover allies it’s a good idea to keep their hit points up so they don’t get themselves killed while taking one for the team. They don’t make very good mages due to their low magic power and meager magic points, but adding white magic to their free slot is never a bad idea.
