The Knight is a heavy armor combat unit that protects weaker units by drawing enemy aggression. Also known as a "Tank".

Description[edit | edit source]

The Knight is a job in Stonehearth that a Hearthling can be promoted to after reaching level 3 as a footman (in the Ascendancy). It is one of two upgrades a Footman can get, the other being Archer. A Hearthling is upgraded to a knight using the Knight's Shield, which is crafted by the Blacksmith.

When promoted the knight gains new armor, the knight's Helm (4 Defense), Knight's Armor (6 Defense) and the Knight's Shield which is used for the promotion.

As of Alpha 16, the Heavy (Steel) armor is now exclusive to Knights.
