Useful Info

Vampire knights are a tougher form of vampire, with a much more powerful melee attack and a more dangerous spell list. If they manage to find a heavy weapon, they can deal impressive amounts of damage. They can be found in the Crypt and the Depths, usually with a couple of phantasmal warriors. Also, you can sometimes find a couple of them guarding the rune in the Swamp.

Tips & Tricks

  • The biggest danger in fighting vampire knights is if they manage to paralyze you. While high willpower will make this unlikely, watch out for phantasmal warriors (which cut will in half).
  • An invisible vampire knight can deal gruesome amounts of damage quickly, particularly for evasion-based characters or lightly-armoured casters. Don't neglect see invisible when you think one is near.
