The Knight is a Melee tier 3 cavalry unit in Symphony of War and in terms of damage dealing, much more capable than a cavalier, due to splash damage. Defense wise, its only a minor/decent improvement over the tier 2 class.

The Knight is an excellent front-line heavy cavalry that can deal damage to multiple enemies. While they are less resilient than their Heavy Infantry counterparts, they make up for it with Cavalry movement, allowing the squad to hit and run.

Regarding traits, there are the following options:

  • Traits like Resolve, Unscathed, and Bodyguard are great to improve the defenses of the Knight.
  • Challenger and Concentration are good to improve their offense.
  • Overpower is also a good option as it can increase the morale damage done by attacks and it increases morale damage dealt with charge attacks, if the strength is high enough. Combined with Disarm, it can be used to lower enemy damage being dealt.
  • Warrior's Hubris is also very useful for counteracting their main weakness against magic damage.
