During Square Enix’s livestream for Final Fantasy Explorers, after providing the latest look at its multiplayer gameplay, the game’s developers shared a glimpse at the latest job with the Dark Knight.
Dark Knights are considered to be technical characters that will be tough to use, but once you learn how to use them, they’ll be one of the strongest damage dealers in the game.
Their attacks will be familiar to those of you who’ve played the Dark Knight in past Final Fantasy games, where they sacrifice their health for more damage, and absorb health from enemies.
Dark Knights use weapons like swords, but also have access to others like the axe, which was demonstrated during the party play session featuring the Dark Knight class.
The Dark Knight job is shown with various attacks and abilities like “Genocide,” “Berserk,” “Smash,” “Tomahawk,” “Catastrophe,” and many others. Most of their self-buffs seem to revolve around all kinds of attack and critical hit increases.
While their attack might be high, they really seem to take a lot of damage whenever they get hit, so it looks like Dark Knight users will have to keep a close eye on the monster and tank, then attack whenever there’s a good opening.
Prior to the reveal, Square let fans vote between Dark Knight and Dragoon, for which one they wanted to see revealed and in motion, so it sounds like we might hear more about Dragoons in the near future.
Final Fantasy Explorers is in development for Nintendo 3DS.
