Abilities[]

Holy Sword[]

Holy knight job command. Smite the foe with holy sword techniques.

Agrias and Delita

White knight job command. Advanced sword skills punish the foe with sacred techniques.

Wiegraf

Agrias, Delita, and Wiegraf must be equipped with a sword to use Holy Sword abilities.

Damage inflicted with Holy Sword abilities is calculated by a unit's physical attack and its right-handed weapon's strength. Holy Sword contains powerful abilities that deal damage and inflict status effects to the target without the requisite of charging time or MP. The user must be equipped with a sword or a knight sword to use them.

Despite its name and help message, Holy Sword abilities are not associated with the Holy element. Instead, the elemental attribute depends on the user's equipped weapon, primarily the one on the right hand. The AI still mistakenly regards them as Holy-elemental, and will not use them if the target is immune to Holy.

Overview[]

Judgement Blade.

The Holy Knight is one of the "special Knight" jobs, capable of dealing physical damage from both short and long ranges, while boasting high stats across the board. Its Holy Sword is a force to be reckoned with, and has some of the strongest abilities in the game, being instant and costing no MP, and also having a small chance to inflict status ailments onto the targets. Holy Sword abilities become even more powerful once the player obtain knight swords, which not only have high power, but also grant passive effects to their wielder. Agrias is the only playable Holy Knight (should the player recruit her), with Delita's being a guest character. Wiegraf is an enemy "White Knight" with similar abilities and strength to a Holy Knight.

In addition to its high physical stats, the Holy Knight has high magickal stats and MP, making it effective with job commands that focus on spellcasting, specially supportive. Time Magic, in particular, is useful for Haste, to further enable the Holy Knight and its allies, while White Magick can aid the team with healing when needed. It can be equipped with robes to increase its MP pool. The Holy Knight can also make decent of use of Geomancy, as its damage is calculated on both physical and magickal attack.

To maximize the Holy Knight's damage output from Holy Sword, it is recommended to boost physical attack as much as possible. The Geomancer's Attack Boost support ability increases attack by 33%, while the Dancer's Fury reaction ability grants +1 attack whenever taking damage. The player can further supplement the job with accessories, such the Bracers or the Tynar Rouge, with the latter being one of the strongest accessories in the game, only available for female units.

Agrias's Holy Knight has second highest physical evasion of all classes in the game, after Ninja, and tied with Balthier's Sky Pirate. By equipping her with high evasion shields, cloaks, and the Shirahadori reaction ability from Samurai, she becomes very hard to hit.

The Holy Knight's only downsides lie in its low mobility and speed. The former can be augmented by equipping the Holy Knight with movement abilities, such as its own Move +1, Thief's Move +2, or even Teleport. The latter is limited due to the lack of speed-enhancing abilities and equipment available for its class. However, Agrias can be equipped with the Excalibur, which grants Auto-Haste.

Behind the scenes[]

The concept of Northswain's Strike's additional instant death effect refers to the Chinese deity of Northern Dipper associated with death whose role is similar to that of the Grim Reaper.

In the original version, "Stasis Sword" is mistranslated as "Steady Sword" in the battle quote.
