Divinity Original Sin 2 Knight Class Guide – Knight Builds, Best Races, Attributes, Abilities, and Talents

Generally, you would expect the Knight to be a brave fighter that can lead troops to battle. However, the Knight in the new Divinity actually works better as a Support Class although he can still land some heavy blows. This Divinity Original Sin 2 Knight Class Guide will tell you how to get the most out of the Knight Class so you can both support your team and deal massive damage.

For more help on Divinity Original Sin 2, you can check out our Inquisitor Class Guide, Fighter Class Guide, and Shadowblade Class Guide.

Divinity Original Sin 2 Knight Class

In this Divinity: Original Sin 2 Knight Class Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about playing as the Class, how to build it, its Abilities, Attributes, and Talents.

The Knight Class

There are quite a few classes for the players to choose from in Divinity Original Sin 2 and Knight Class is one of them with unique skills, abilities, and attributes and this guide will help players with all the Knight class skills, abilities, attributes and more.

Divinity Original Sin 2 Knight Class Attributes

Strength
Strength has been buffed by a massive +2 which allows you to deal major damage and carry heavy equipment without being slowed down. Try to utilize your Strength as much as you can early on by taking on enemies during the early stages of the game.

Constitution
The constitution is another thing which makes you very effective early on by giving you extra health.

Divinity Original Sin 2 Knight Class Abilities and Talent

Warfare Ability
As it should be obvious by now if you have been reading our other class guides, the warfare Ability buffs your damage allowing you to use your conventional weapons in fights.

Two Handed Ability
This adds a passive bonus to the critical damage multiplier. This works extremely works with your Rage Skill so use this as much as you can.

Bartering Ability
Each point in this Ability reduces the cost purchase of items by +10 percent and further increases the price at which you can sell them. This makes the Knight a good character for trading.

Opportunist Talent
If an enemy is near you, you can attack them out of turn if they try to move.

Divinity Original Sin 2 Knight Class Starting Skills

Battering Ram
Battering Ram makes you charge towards the enemy and you also knock down any enemies that may be blocking you. You will injure the enemies as well!

Crippling Blow
Crippling Blow is perhaps one of the best AoE Starting Abilities in the game. Try to use this along with the Two Handers so that the additional Bleeding effect will make the enemies stay in the range of normal attacks.

Rage
Rage allows you to critically strike more often than not. I am sure I do not need to explain the significance of this Ability.

Best Race for the Knight

For the Knight, both the Elf and the Lizard are completely useless due to the discrepancy in their modifiers. Human might work but is nothing special, a skilled player might be able to make it work but I would not recommend it.

By far the best race for the Knight is the Elf due to its high strength and the advantages that it will give you in early head to head combat.
