Dragon Quest X will get a brand-new job with the Demon Knight in its next major update. Square Enix provided a look with new screenshots showing wicked moves from the new Demon Knight job. [Thanks, 4Gamer.]
The Dragon Quest X Demon Knight can equip various weapons, including swords, knives, greatswords, scythes, and shields. Demon Knights can power themselves up by covering themselves in the “Veil of Darkness.” This is possible thanks to the job’s “Demonic Wave.”
The bottom-left meter indicates your “Demonic Wave” that fills up when taking damage from an enemy. Once the meter fills up all the way, it is ready to go.
You can buff yourself using “Veil of Darkness” to land a powerful strike.
Here’s a “Darkness Multi-hit” dark elemental attack.
The super-useful “Disruptive Wave” skill that nullifies all stat changes will be available for the Demon Knight to learn. This is actually the debut of the series recurring skill.
“Dark Matter” is a ranged skill that surrounds the Demon Knight. It also has an additional effect of lowering the enemy’s resistance to dark element, making it a powerful tool for the job.
Dragon Quest X is available in Japan for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Wii U, PC, iOS, and Android.
