The Dark Knight is the fourth job advancement for the Berserker. A Dark Knight's signature skill is the Beholden, a dark spirit that will assist and follow the Dark Knight in battle. The Beholder can heal the Dark Knight and buff the Dark Knight for a variety of status enhancements. The skill Berserk activates when the Dark Knight's HP is above a certain level, awakening the dormant spirit of Dark Knight. The Dark Knight can do 1.6 times the usual damage in this state.
Becoming a Dark Knight
At Level 100, speak to Dances with Balrog. He will send you to see Harmonia of Leafre. The job instructor will instruct you to return the Heroic Star and Heroic Pentagon. They are dropped by Manon and Griffey. Either way, return the items to Harmonia and he will complete your journey as a Berserker and advance you to Dark Knight!
