As promised, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen has unveiled its second class this week with the Dark Knight. As a champion of evil, the Dark Knight wears dark plate armor and specializes in the use of two-handed great swords, longswords, shields, and axes. But on some occasions they’ve also been known to use other weapons such as lances, maces, and spears. Along with an assortment of weaponry, Dark Knights also dabble in the arts of necromancy, so just think EverQuest’s Shadow Knight to some extent.

"The Dark Knight is a leader highly skilled in combat who takes charge on the front line. They’re seen wearing dark, plate armor and thrive in the use of two-handed great swords, long swords, shields, and axes. Though there have been cases where they have used other types of weaponry such as maces, spears or lances. The Dark Knights have the ability to blend in the shadows, manipulate them to attack their foes or even summon sentries of shadow to protect and fight for them."

In addition to the Dark Knight announcement, Visionary Realms also revealed Pantheon’s Nexus, the lost goddess of Terminus.

"Nexus is the divine figure whose existence predates every pantheon on Terminus. Her mysterious visitations to gods and mortals began in the wake of the first planar collisions, saving their souls from the void and offering them refuge upon her once lifeless world."

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is approaching the $180k mark of its $800k Kickstarter goal with 32 days to go.
