Even in their own home towns, Shadow Knights are often shunned and kept out of sight. They are essentially the exact opposite of Paladins. Rather than having the ability to Lay on Hands, Shadow Knights have the ability to Harm Touch once a day, dealing massive amounts of damage to a single target. Shadow Knights, like Paladins, can either wield a shield, or go all offense with a two-handed weapon. Their limited skills in necromancy allow them to cast damage over time spells, snare their enemies, and also summon undead minions. Shadow Knights focus their hatred for all things pure into a fearsome offensive asault from all angles. These hybrids can wear any of the four types of armor, but almost always choose to wear plate as soon as they can afford it.
