Though the hearty Knights of Azeroth were destroyed during the First War, the shining Knights of Lordaeron still continue to serve amongst the warriors of the Alliance. These heavily armored warriors use mighty swords in combat which can damage enemy warriors up to several feet away. The Knights' speed and mobility mark them as the most versatile warriors of the Alliance.
Powerful mounted warrior. Can learn Animal War Training. Attacks land units.
Knights are very powerful and fast troops. Be sure to research Animal War Training to increase their hit points. To make your knights even tankier, try to get the Paladin's Devotion Aura as well as Inner Fire from Priests.
Many Human players try to rush up to Knights as soon as they can to replace their Footmen. It is best to research the armor upgrades to give them even more armor.
Compared to other late-game melee units such as taurens and abominations, knights specialize in chasing down enemy ranged units and heroes with its very fast movement speed and Sundering Blades passive ability. That being said, a group of knights will lose out to a group of taurens in a brawl, and knights are useless against late-game air units like Chimaeras and Frost Wyrms.
