The knight is a troop card, available from the Training Camp. It is medium speed, with 1 sec deploy time. His target is ground, with hit speed of 1.1 sec and melee range. The cost to deploy this card is 3 elixirs. As the level increases, the hitpoints, damage per hit and damage per second are also increased. The knight starts with 600 hitpoints, 75 damage per hit and 68 damage per second. The maximum upgrade of the knight is 1686 hipoints, 210 damage per hit and 190 damage per second.
The knight is considered a good card for both offense and defense. It can be used as a front warrior combined with smaller troops. It hits only one target a t a time and it can be easily distracted. When the knight gets killed, his sword stays buried at the arena.
Clash Royale describes the knight as: “A tough melee fighter. The Barbarian`s handsome, cultured cousin. Rumor has it that he was knighted based on the sheer awesomeness of his mustache alone.”
