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.

Information Edit

Knights are very powerful and fast troops. Be sure to research Animal War Training to increase their hit points. The Paladin's Devotion Aura is also good to use with Knights.

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. Knight usage is pretty straight forward.
