The Knight is a flexible class in Ragnarok X, however, players choose to follow the Spear build as it deals a lot of damage in a single hit.
Ragnarok X: Next Generation (ROX) is a popular mobile massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). It has maintained the spirit of the well-loved, classic Ragnarok Online. However, ROX introduced various new features and gameplay mechanics that players will not see in the classic version.
In ROX, players are able to explore Midgard and get lost in the luxuriant world with its mesmerizing art style. However, an evil presence soon threatens to tear apart the fantasy world.
The game invites players to create their own digital avatars to enter Midgard. The avatars can be customized by equipping powerful gear, accessories, and costumes. Players are also able to upgrade their avatars with better equipment, which will allow the player to proceed in the game.
When creating an avatar, players have a choice of six different jobs, such as an Assassin Cross, Sniper, Lord Knight, High Wizard, High Priest and a Whitesmith.
|Job type||Job description|
|Whitesmith||Whitesmiths have amazing forging abilities, and are able to see through the weaknesses of an enemy’s weapons|
|High Wizard||High Wizards are described as wise men, who use magic to range attack. They have various skills and attributes|
|Sniper||Snipers are the sharpshooters of the game. They are great at attacking the enemies from a distance. Snipers can also break down enemies’ defenses|
|High Priest||High Priests take on a supporting role, as they have a good control ability|
|Lord Knight||Lord Knights are described as the solid barrier on the battlefield. However, they have the skills to strengthen themselves, which makes them good at defending, and attacking|
|Assassin Cross||This avatar is described as a blade hidden in the dark. They usually aim at the enemy’s weak spot, and they never miss an opportunity to counterattack|
The Knight is seen as a very flexible class, as it can do a lot of damage in player-versus-environment (PvE), and tank in player-versus-player (PvP). As it is a flexible class, there are various builds available. However, many players choose to follow the spear skill-based build as it deals a lot of damage in one hit.
This build focusses on different set of skills in order to deal damage. It consists of both area-of-effect (AoE) and single target skills. It is important that players focus on physical attack, physical penetration, final damage, and a bit of vigour. This is to reduce the Variable Cool Down as low as possible.
|Dexterity attribute (DEX)||Allocating points in DEX will increase the character’s Haste. This means that the Cool Down Reduction will reduce, and players can deal more damage the quicker they can use skills.
It is recommended that players invest as many points into DEX as they can
|Strength (STR)||Players should only invest points into STR when their cool down reduction is high|
|Attack speed (AA)||AA is not very important for Spear Knight, as the build depends on skill damage, rather than AA damage|
|Penetration||Physical penetration is essential for all melee classes, as they mainly do physical damage. Players are able to increase it by equipping white accessories, and enchanting it for physical penetration|
|Skills||It is recommended that players minimize the Cool Down Reduction as much as possible. However, it is important to note that their skills should have level 10|
Gear for the Spear Knight build
As it is a Spear build, players should obtain a spear-type weapon. Two-handed spears will increase the total physical damage (ATK) and Vigour. Players can level it up to gain additional Vigour and ATK. Players should also try to obtain a blue spear, as it provides Ferocity.
It is recommended that players equip blue armour as it provides the character with defence and magic defence. This means that the character will be able to survive for longer periods of time. Regarding accessories, players should go for Haste and ATK in their rings. However, players can increase the enchantment and invest in the rings to obtain maximum Vigour.
Players can slot Haste and ATK based cards in this build. However, it is recommended that players use WeapMarina in weapons, Zombie or Hode for armour, Soldier Skeleton for accessories and Deniro and Marduk for headgear.
Skills for Spear Knight build
It is recommended that players allocate points to Spear Proficiency, Pierce, Spear Stab, Spear Boomerang and Spiral Pierce. Additionally, players need to allocate points in Calvary Combat and Calvary Training.
Advantages and disadvantages of a Spear Knight
The Spear Knight build focuses on player-versus-player. It features high Haste and low cool down reductions. This means that players can spam more skills. However, it has burst skill damage. It is important to note that this build is not as strong as other PvP builds.
