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, but in general they aren't too threatening. They can be found in the Crypt.

Tips & Tricks

  • The biggest danger in fighting vampire knights is if they manage to paralyze you, though even decent magic resistance will make this unlikely.
