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, sometimes with a couple of phantasmal warriors.

Tips & Tricks

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