The anti-Guardian is a sinister warrior who is everything the Guardian is not. Thoroughly wicked and immoral, he has turned to foul magics and dark treachery to advance his own ends. As unholy blackguards, Shadow Knights combine the prowess of a Knight, and the baleful magic of the dark arts of a Lich, to control Armies of Undead. Hidden away from the people, the Shadow Knights worship the dark spirits of the underworld in the Cult known as the Blades of Grenth.


Terror System

Uses the Fury System similar to my Paladin Idea, called Terror But unlike The Paladin's Holy-Fury , the Shadow Knight's Terror deplete over time, and doesnt auto regen like the other Fury Classes.

Terror, regens by both doing Damage, and Taking Damage and causing terror to your enemies.

(COMPANION) Lich, Shadow Fiend, Hellhound, Skeleton Knight, Wraith, or Zombie Brute

Shadow Knights ARE NOT simply a Warrior/Necromancer.

I know many people here seem to think that Dual Class system can make any class, but that’s just a gimmick. Because using that same logic, we all could say, a Necromancer is not a needed class, because a Ritualist/ Mesmer is basically the same idea.

But I am sure Many would disagree on that, because THEY DON’T FIGHT THE SAME!! Even though they both share the same concept, does not in any way make them the same. It is nothing more than a Silly Illogical Argument, that I would like to see gone.

Again another example:

Some people would say a Ritualist is nothing more than a Necromancer/Monk, which is isn’t as we can see already.

So please, do not make silly arguments like that in the feedback. I gave my Class idea its own Combat system Mechanics, and Role Playing Spells and abilities. So again I will repeat.

Shadow Knight is NOT a Warrior/Necromancer!

I enjoy playing Crusader Knight Classes, and would really enjoy Guild Wars 2 if it has both Holy Crusader Knights and Unholy Crusader Knight Classes. --Knighthonor 05:57, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
