I got Queen of Hearts, so I can’t help but compare him to her.
Same mana speed, tanky stats and a similar special.
I’d say BK is a bit better since his taunt doesn’t rely on a minion, but it does look like his taunt and damage prevention are dispellable, so at least not completely OP.
I already see an absolutely broken combo with Wilbur or Aegir. I can confirm that shared damage+taunt is strong, but together with the atk buff it is on a whole other level. For the same reason I lose against Aegir+Khiona so often.
As much as I hate/love Guin, I think this is the strongest hero in Avalon now.
Hi everyone, I’ve added the Black Knight’s buffs to the Status Effects topic This topic is a quick reference of all buffs and ailments in the game.
Black Knight casts 3 status effects on himself (counting the berserk attack buff), and only one on all his allies. This can be very useful for buff booster tournaments, particularly as a tank in those. They can all be dispelled, taunt included.
Note about Dispels vs Taunt
It is very worth noting that the dispel only affects the Black Knight regardless of the dispel’s range! That means if you hit Black Knight with Domitia, only his buffs will be dispelled; not his nearby allies. This is thanks to Taunt
Once taunt has been dispelled, all of his allies can then be targeted and their buffs dispelled. Bringing two dispellers against him sounds like a good idea, or at least 1 dispeller and additional attack droppers.
So yes, that means that Frida can only dispel him, and you have to bring along other heroes to deal with his berserk buffed allies
Allow me to ask for a clarification. For example I have Domitia and Hel, I fire Domitia’s special to debuff BK then fire Crush of Hel on BK. Only BK will not gain mana because the nearby heroes still have taunt and will not be affected by Crush of Hel?
But you said " That means if you hit Black Knight with Domitia, only his buffs will be dispelled; not his nearby allies . This is thanks to Taunt". So that means only BK lost his taunt and nearby allies still have taunt and can’t be targetted by any spells, what did I miss?
Correct, as no one else besides him ever had taunt… however, the other heroes will still have the attack up but that’s expected with kage, less expected with a target 3 dispeller, but it works the same as Queen with a minion, no one else is hit / dispelled if taunt is active.
Mad Hatter’s skill only works against Black Knight if Taunt is active. However! That also means he steals Taunt! So it kinda sucks in the sense that Hatter can’t steal all the other berserk attack buffs if Taunt is active, but it’s kinda neat that… Taunt can be stolen!
B. Knight is close with Queen of Hearts in the sense they both get Taunt, but the way you deal with them is completely different
