Rune Knights are the final evolution of the Knight Job. Their name is often abbreviated and then referred to as just "RK". They have traded in their Pecos for new dragon mounts and are ready to do some serious damage with an arsenal of new powerful attacks while also having the highest HP pool compared to other classes.

Rune Knights have a slower startup leveling-wise, but through persistence and dedication, they can become one of the most versatile and powerful Jobs in the game. For early levels Wind Cutter and Sonic Wave are the best option when used with Two-Handed Swords and the Peuz's set. The aim should be to max Ignition Break later on.

The other option is to go with a Dragon Breath build early on, but it won't be very strong in the first 20-30 levels. Rune Knights aspiring to have a Dragon Breath end-game build without using a skill/stat reset may resort to being mainly a party tank for 20-30 base levels until their HP and SP pools are higher for better damage, as that is how the Dragon Breath skill formula is calculated. The upside is that Bowling Bash is one of the most powerful non-Third Jobs AOEs and can be used until level 110-120 or so, but does require a good weapon and some practice with the gutter lines. Dragon Breath ignores reductions in PVP / WoE and is one of the main killing skills, but is dependent on party buffs such as Magic Strings and Sacrament.

And then of course there is the reason why they are called RUNE Knights: the runes themselves. Players that choose the Rune Knight Job are introduced to a new system of buffs and attacks in the form of rune stones. These stones provide the user with immensely powerful buffs that ranges anywhere from a large increase in DEF/MDEF, potting ability, and massive damage increase. Creating runes does consume materials unfortunately, but the sheer power of these runes makes it worth the cost. It is highly recommended that every Rune Knight should get Rune Mastery for end-game use.

Even though the Rune Knight Job sounds like a lot of work, many players that choose to go this route find themselves falling in love with their character and losing interest in all other Jobs.

Job Change Guide

See Rune Knight Job Change Guide for detailed information.

This test is very easy, but it is strongly recommended to have high dex (70 dex is recommended) or use a high level of Spear Dynamo for the final part due to the mobs having such high flee rate. You will be pitted up against three very powerful minibosses. You must time the use of your runes accordingly to allow yourself time to heal/get in hits.
