Why does their caps are pretty low?

Do they have the lowest ranking from all classes or something?

Snipers have better caps despite that though.

Bow Knights are Bowing while fighting as a Knight. Double negative utility

Snipers are sniping

Mounted units generally have lower caps compared to their ground equivalent.

Have you tried comparing General caps to a Great Knight?


There has to be some kind of trade off for the extra movement Spd (and the added weakness is pretty ignorable for none-fliers in this game).

Yup.

But Bow Knights really have low caps(it even loses to Griffon Rider)...possibly the lowest ranking of all other classes?

Bit of a tangent, but I was wondering if there was any point to using a Bow Knight over an Assassin, since they use the same weapons. Is the extra movement even worth lowered caps?

Well, you can get bow breaker? Really though, assassin is much better, so you'd only really go bowknight if assassins not an option and you really want a none sniper bow user for some reason. Even Bride is a better option, course that's women only. It's sad, because mounted bow users haven't always been bad.

The lowest cap total is Great Knight at 342. Followed by Bow Knight at 344, Berzerker at 348, at Griffon Knight at 349.

Also the difference between Assassin and Bow Knight is +5SPD/SKL for Assassin or +4DEF/+2MOV for Bow Knight.


Finally, the reason why Manakete looks so much better than Taguel; Taguel is at 335 (before stone bonuses) while Manakete is at 350 (before stone bonuses). Taguel is at 368 (after bonuses) while Manakete is at 398 (after bonuses; the highest in the game).
