3) Knight Spells and Recommended Monster Spells [VYSL]

   For a complete list of spells, please refer to the following link:

   http://www.onewhowaits.com/puzzlequest/spells.html

   Since all spells (as well as items and runes) are detailed above, I'll
   merely list all the spells that the Knight can learn, and any notable spells
   that can be learned from monsters that a Knight can use to great effect.

   The spells will be arranged according to this format:

   Name: The name of the spell.
   Level learned at/Monster learned from: The level or monster that you'll need
   to attain to get access to this spell (either immediately or through
   research)
   Description: What the spell will do.
   Cost: The amount and type(s) of mana spell consumes to cast
   Recommended by (only for monster spells): Who gave this spell the thumbs up
   Notes: Any info and opinions by any users (either me or any other players)
   on the usefulness of this spell.
   Rating: Done in an "out of 10" format.  Also user opinionated.

A: Knight Spells [SKWL]

   Name: Thrust
   Level learned: 1 (You start with this.  Other classes must learn from a
   Knight monster)
   Description: Destroys a single targeted gem, gaining its effects.
   Cost: 6 Fire, 6 Water (9 Fire, 9 Water for Knight-researched version)
   Notes:
   DS73: Thrust is an okay early-use spell.  It can help by destroying that
   pesky gem preventing a column of four gems or a row of five from matching.
   Charge! destroys a whole row, which would still allow the vertical match,
   but would screw over a horizontal match.  This spell destroys only one,
   however, so destructive capabilites are limited.  You can make lots of
   dumb dialogue with this spell, though.  :D
   Rating: 
   DS73: 6/10

   Name: Divine Right
   Level learned: 2 (Other classes learn from Knight)
   Description: Destroys all purple stars in play, gaining their effects.
   Cost: 6 Air, 6 Water (9 Air, 9 Water for Knight-researched version)
   Notes:
   DS73: Damn useful spell.  This facilitates experience-gathering and opens up
   a stagnant board.  However, this spell only has a major effect with at least
   10 purple stars in play.  Even then, you may still get screwed by the random
   drops.  Still a great spell (until you hit Lv. 50, of course).
   Rating:
   DS73: 8/10

   Name: Challenge
   Level learned: 3
   Description: Damage to both players increased by 50%.  Your turn doesn't end
   if you have at least 15 Yellow Mana when the spell is cast.
   Cost: 6 Fire, 6 Air
   Notes:
   DS73: I ditched this one.  This spell is risky, especially in the early
   levels when a few screw-ups could cost you the battle.  It's okay if you
   don't expect any skull matches from your opponent, but I still don't like
   it.  You may get killed on a bad drop.  However, if you manage to get some
   skull drops while this spell is in effect, have at it and inflict some
   carnage.  :D
   Rating:
   DS73: 3/10

   Name: Stun
   Level learned: 4
   Description: Makes your enemy lose a turn, and inflicts 5 damage, plus 1 for
   every 8 Red Mana in your reserves when this spell is cast.
   Cost: 6 Earth, 5 Fire
   Notes:
   DS73: You better spam this spell a lot.  This is the Knight's lifeblood,
   and it saved many a Knight from defeat.  You'll do amazingly well by keeping
   this in your list at all times.  The only veritable complaint I could wage
   would be the resistances, but since few enemies have a resistance against
   Earth or Fire mana spells high enough to speak of (at least 20%), I think
   it's hardly an argument.  That said, this spell will help clear the path for
   you when you're stuck and would be forced to make some bad choices.  Plus,
   out of all the spells that make your enemy lose a turn, this is the cheapest
   one, cost-wise.
   Rating:
   DS73: 10/10

   Name: Trample
   Level learned: 5 (Others must learn from a Centaur)
   Description: Inflicts damage equal to half your Green Mana in reserve to the
   enemy.  This will inflict at least 1 point of damage.
   Cost: 7 Earth, 7 Fire (10 Earth, 10 Fire for Centaur-researched version)
   Notes:
   DS73: You won't use this much without a LOT of Earth Mana stored up.  You
   won't achieve high reserves without putting points to Earth Mastery, and you
   don't want to waste Lv. Up points on its high cost-to-stat ratio.  This
   spell also drains mana from your Stun spell reserves, which you'll need in
   a pinch.  Oh, and when you cast the spell, the mana that's needed to cast
   it won't get counted in inflicting the damage.
   Rating:
   DS73: 4/10

   Name: Favor
   Level learned: 7
   Description: Gives a 50% chance of adding 1 Life Point for each exp. point
   gained.  This effect lasts for 8 turns, plus 1 for every 6 Air Mana in
   reserve when the spell is cast.
   Cost: 6 Air, 8 Water
   Notes:
   DS73: When used in tandem with Knight Lord/Promotion/Both and followed by
   Divine Right, you can recover from a severe blow and fight back with
   confidence!  To assist in your efforts, Stun first and keep it running until
   the combo is complete.  Just be warned that you may recover less Life than
   you really need.  If you keep killing the enemy when you still have half of
   your life left, you won't really need this spell.  You'll REALLY not need
   the spell if your Morale is at least 150.  :p
   Rating:
   DS73: 8/10

   Name: Courage
   Level learned: 8
   Description: Removes all status effects on you.  Your turn doesn't end if
   you have at least 10 Water Mana when the spell is cast.
   Cost: 2 Fire, 2 Air, 2 Water
   Notes:
   DS73: This will keep Poison, Disease, and all those other status effects
   from screwing you over in the end.  This will also let you keep going with
   enough Water Mana in stock.  However, three types of mana are used, so your
   spell may get resisted more often!  Plus, this spell will also wipe any
   positive effects that you have.  I learned this the hard way when I cast it
   with Paladin Aura on.
   Rating:
   DS73: 9/10

   Name: Promotion
   Level learned: 10
   Description: Turns all the gems of the selected type into purple gems.  Any
   gem can be picked, including skulls or gold.
   Cost: 8 for all 4 types
   Notes:
   DS73: Nice if you want to keep mana (or gold from Dugog) away from your
   opponent and giving him useless (to him) experience.  You can also set up 4
   or 5-of-a-kinds with this spell.  Be warned, however, that all 4 types are
   used, so watch out for those with resistances in all four types.  Once you
   hit Lv. 50, that's it for experience-gathering, though.
   Rating:
   DS73: 9/10

   Name: Charge!
   Level learned: 12 (Others must learn from a Minotaur)
   Description: Destroys a whole row of gems and inflicts 5 damage.  Full
   effect for the destroyed gems is gained
   Cost: 6 for all 4 types (9 for all 4 if Minotaur-researched)
   Notes:
   DS73: The far more destructive version of Thrust, literally, positively,
   and negatively.  It takes out 8 gems in a horizontal row, so any matches
   that must be done horizontally will get annihilated.  On the positive side,
   you can really screw opponents over by denying any skulls or 4/5-of-a-kinds.
   Rating:
   DS73: 7/10

   Name: Vigil
   Level learned: 15
   Description: Whenever you match 4 or 5, you gain 3 to all mana reserves
   this spell persists.  Lasts for 8 turns, plus 1 for every 5 Water Mana in
   reserve when this spell is cast.
   Cost: 6 Air, 8 Water
   Notes:
   DS73: Really, you can just forge a Rune of Music with a Modifier Rune
   that adds at least 2 to Base Rune and any Power Rune to achieve the same
   effect without recast and with an additional bonus.  However, if you want
   the spell and item, be my guest.  That said, combine this with Promotion and
   Knight Lord to help in making stars, or Paladin's Aura for massive mana
   storing.  Plus, the cost's pretty cheap and only vulnerable on 2 types, so
   it's pretty nice.
   Rating:
   DS73: 8/10

   Name: Knight Lord
   Level learned: 20
   Description: Doubles the number of purple stars in play, ending your turn
   (unless you get lucky and get a 4/5-of-a-kind)
   Cost: 6 Earth, 6 Air, 6 Water
   Notes:
   DS73: Oooh, another useful spell.  REALLY useful if you manage to get at
   least 16 purple stars in play at once.  Like Divine Right, this doesn't
   have much of a game-altering effect if there's only a few stars in the grid.
   You can work wonders with this spell, and it's capable of screwing over some
   combos that require anything other than just purple stars.  Also, nice spell
   for getting more experience.  If you forged a Dragonhorn of (whatever), you
   could keep this spell going and going forever and ever and ever...  Until
   there's hardly anymore Purple Stars, at least.  Even after you hit Lv. 50
   and made all your Exp. gathering spells spells useless, you'll still find a
   use with this spell when getting mana.
   Rating:
   DS73: 9/10

   Name: Sword of Sirian
   Level learned: 30
   Description: Drains all your Air Mana, inflicting damage equal to the Air
   Mana drained.
   Cost: 10 for all 4 types
   Notes:
   DS73: Oh jeez...   You'll need a good amount of Air Mana to get this to be
   worth anything, which means you need a good rating on Air Mastery.  Even
   then, you use up ALL your Air Mana, not to mention 10 of your other mana
   types.  I'd much rather take a Mana Drain than use this spell.  The good
   thing, however, is that you can avoid being hit hard by Archery, which
   would inflict no damage without any Yellow Mana.  Not too useful by itself,
   however.
   Rating:
   DS73: 2/10

   Name: Chivalry
   Level learned: 40
   Description: Fills all the mana reserves of both players, and cleanses off
   oll the status effects of both players.
   Cost: 16 for all 4 types
   Notes:
   DS73: Absolute suicide against Runekeepers, and basically anyone who has
   items that benefit from full reserves.  Of course, it also helps you, and
   the enemy doesn't cast spells much anyways (although I see them cast more
   often in my eyes).  If you're forging, a Rune of Jewels will add 8 damage,
   although Eric's Bow does that better by 3 at Lv. 50.  A Black Staff can
   hit for 16 more to your base, so there's some items that can take advantage
   of this spell.  However, against the above enemies, STAY AWAY from this
   spell!
   Rating:
   DS73: 2/10

   Name: Paladin's Aura
   Level learned: 50
   Descriptions: At the beginning of each turn that this spell is in effect, 2
   mana of all types are added to your reserves.  Lasts for 8 turns, plus 1 for
   every 5 Air Mana in reserve when this is cast.
   Cost: 12 Air, 9 Water
   Notes:
   DS73: For a final level spell, it's very useful.  Constant mana regen for
   a few turns, plus this spell pays for itself in 6 turns and it also fuels
   your Stun assault.  Alongside Vigil, you can really get back to owning the
   crap out of your opponent!  The mana regen is slow, though, so don't rely
   on it.  Plus, while this spell is active, try not to cast Courage, or else
   you lose the bonus.  This spell will nullify the effects of 2 Disease
   conditions on you.
   Rating:
   DS73: 9/10

   If you ask me for my opinion on a spell list at level 50, using Knight
   spells only, I'd use this:
   Divine Right
   Stun
   Favor
   Vigil
   Knight Lord
   Paladin's Aura

   My mount is a Giant Rat.  Cunning bonus, plus I could find a use for Rabid
   Bite every now and then.  :)

B: Recommended Monster Spells [LCMS]

   Name: Burn
   Learned from: Imp
   Description: Turns all green gems in play to red gems, ending your turn
   (Unless you get a 4 or 5 of a kind)
   Cost: 4 Earth, 6 Fire
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: Ah, a nice killer against those who rely on Earth Mana to get their
   spells going!  This needs at least 10 green gems to have any significant
   effect.  Of course, you can get some free matches with this spell!  Be
   warned, however, that without a Stun, the enemy could use this against you.
   It's ESPECIALLY not recommended against stuff that use Fire Mana, like
   Fire Elementals, Flame Giants, Flame Dragons, and a Warrior with
   Deathbringer that you came across (un)luckily.  Also, you'll consume the
   green gems, which you'll need for Stun.
   Rating:
   DS73: 8/10

   Name: Conflagration
   Learned from: Fire Giant
   Description: Turns all gems of the selected type into red gems.  All gems
   are selectable, including skulls or gold.
   Cost: 12 for all 4 types
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: Getting bored of Promotion, or already at Lv. 50?  Switch it out
   and use this spell!  Combined with Burn, you can fill the field with red
   gems, meaning you could get a Heroic Effort or build mana quickly!  It's
   best to link this with Burn for massive fire power, then Rain of Fire to
   clean the field of red gems.
   Rating:
   DS73: 9/10

   Name: Death Gaze
   Learned from: Liche
   Description: Halves your enemy's LP, making a random skull for every 5
   points inflicted.
   Cost: 45 Earth, 30 Fire
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: That enemy has at least 300 Life Points?  Cast this, and they will not
   only be reeling from the blow, but you could add MORE injury by random
   skull matches!  You're best served to cast this when you first start to
   inflict damage, since this only affects your opponent's current Life Points
   and not his maximum.  You wouldn't want to win in two turns, would you?  :p
   Just be careful about casting; this uses up a LOT of mana.  Also, it's a
   complete pain in the ass to actually research this in the first place.  You
   WILL fail to research this one a LOT.
   This is probably the brother of Deathbringer.  Hey, death spell brothers!
   Equip a Rune of Music item and you can fill your reserves with this.  :D

   DS73: 10/10

   Name: Freeze
   Learned from: Frost Giant
   Description: Turns all red gems into blue gems and adds 1 to Water Mana for
   every gem transformed.
   Cost: 4 Earth, 6 Water
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: Ah, another link in the chain of Burn and Conflagration!  You can
   abruptly turn the field into a sea of blue, and you can get MORE combos set
   up!  Plus, the cost's cheap and it only can concieveably get interrupted by
   resistances, which only apply if the resistances against Earth and Water
   Mana are significant.  As a single spell, use when the enemy wants some
   Fire Mana desperately.  Also, you'll leave Wizards and Warriors in the cold
   without Fire Mana gems to work with.
   Rating:
   DS73: 8/10 (if used to link with Burn and Conflagration), 8/10 (single
   spell usage)

   Name: Frost Bite
   Learned from: Frost Giant
   Description: Destroys all blue gems and inflicts 1 damage per destroyed gem
   Cost: 9 Air, 13 Water
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: Here's a combo-ender.  After Burning and Conflagrating, then Freezing
   the field and getting a nice chunk of Water Mana, you can channel some Air
   Mana with the filled Water and REALLY hurt the enemy for at least 20+
   damage!  It's a long combo, but it really hurts the enemy, especially if you
   can pull it off.  As a single spell, wait until you get at least 12 blue
   gems in play.  It's nothing too special, but it can act as a substitute for
   Divine Right when you hit Lv. 50.
   Rating:

   Name: Headbutt
   Learned from: Orc Lord
   Descrption: Destroys all red gems in play, and your enemy loses 1 turn, plus
   and additional 1 per 8 gems destroyed.
   Cost: 9 Earth, 18 Fire
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: What if you DON'T want to Freeze and Frost Bite, or the enemy has a
   good Water resistance?  Switch to this.  You'll take out all the Red gems
   and you can get some free turns in!  As a single spell, it's not really
   worth it unless you can get your opponent to lose 3 turns.  It doesn't cost
   as much as  Rain of Fire, even though it's still steep, but you'll get some
   free turns if you could pull it off.
   Rating:
   DS73: 9/10 (as an alternate combo-ender), 7/10 (as a single spell)

   Name: Rain of Fire
   Learned from: Fire Giant
   Description: Destroys all red gems, inflicting 1 damage per destroyed gem
   Cost: 12 Earth, 18 Fire
   Recommended by: DS73
   Notes:
   DS73: Another combo-ender for the Burnflagration assault.  Instead of Frost
   Bite, you can implement this and cause your enemy pain the same way.  As a
   single spell, wait for at least 12 red gems.  Also, the cost is a bit steep,
   so you should monitor your reserves.
   Rating:
   DS73: 8/10 (different combo-ender), 7/10 (single spell)

   Notice, I didn't put the spells from mounts.  I'd figure you could choose
   your own to augument your style of play.

C: Known Knight Loops [YCHM]

   Knight Loop #1:

   Your spell list:

   Vigil (optional if you have a good Rune of Jewels rune item equipped)
   Promotion
   Knight Lord
   Stun (keeps loop going)
   Favor (for LP recovery)
   Divine Right (for clean-up)

   Basically, you're running Vigil first, unless you got a Dragonhorn of
   (whatever) equipped.  You put Promotion to bring out some Purple Stars if
   there hardly is any.  Once you got some Purple Stars, run Knight Lord
   indefinitely.  You'll use Stun to act as a nice buffer, and for LP recovery,
   Favor away.  Divine Right is there if you get bored of the loop.

4)Tactical Strategies as a Knight [TSAK]

   Alright, young squire.  You know your spell lists, and you know how this
   game works already (hopefully).  Now let's get into the tactical discussion.

A: Your Equipment [KEOS]

   There's not much to say here, sadly.  Knights don't have all that much
   useful equipment, many of which could be forged.  Among the good non-forged
   items are:

   Name: Eric's Bow
   Type: Weapon
   Why this?:  At Lv. 50, you're doing +11 damage every time you match skulls.

   Name: Minogoth's Armor
   Type: Body
   Why this?: It's like a Full Plate Armor, and it also gives you an extra 15%
   Earth Resistance.  Plus, hardly any useful Body armor is avilable for use.

   Among the forged stuff:

   Dragonhorn of (whatever)
   Forge with: Rune of Music+Rune of Dragons+Any Power Rune of your choice
   Type: Misc
   Why this?: Vigil becomes obsolete, so you can use another spell, like Death
   Gaze.  :D

   Eye of (Whatever)
   Forge with: Rune of Orbs+Rune of Dragons+Any Power Rune
   Type: Misc
   Why this?: In case your enemy likes casting spells, why not go and leech off
   some mana for your own?  Also, you can switch between this and the above
   Dragonhorn, if you need to.

   Aegis of Poison
   Forge with: Rune of Shields+Rune of Gods+Rune of Poison
   Type: Misc
   Why this?: Not wanting to rely on gathering mana, but you want some damage
   on your enemy?  Try this.  40% chance of inflicting poison, and every time
   your enemy inflicts 6 or more damage, they get 5 back.

   Relic of (whatever)
   Forge with: Rune of Jewels+Rune of Gods+Any Power Rune
   Type: Head
   Why this?: Since there's hardly any good head armor, and you'll be most
   likely gathering mana anyway, you can add 24 damage to the 11 Eric's Bow
   at Lv. 50 its already dealing ON TOP OF the damage you're already getting
   through skull matches!

   There are many ways to get your Knight to have some sort of an equipment
   arrangement that would exemplify his abilities, whether through natural
   leveling or stat buying.

   A typical arrangement of a Knight sometimes revolves around output of damage
   without mana.  In that case, I recommend this:

   Heavy hitter:

   Relic of (whatever)
   Minogoth's Armor
   Eric's Bow
   Aegis of Poison

   Assuming you cast NOTHING (including Stun) in the face of sufficent
   resistances and stock up mana, you'll most likely be delievering at least 35
   damage at Lv. 50 and with full mana reserves for all four types.  That
   doesn't include the Battle bonus and Poison effect, so have at it.  :D

   On the other hand, what if you're casting a lot of spells and need mana
   a lot?  Well, look at the above arrangement and replace the Aegis with a
   Dragonhorn of (whatever).  You'll switch strategies on the fly!

   What if you're facing that Warrior with Deathbringer?  I bring this along:

   No Earth Mana type spells:

   Deep Talisman (Jewels+Chaos+Caverns)
   Minogoth's Armor or a forged body item (Lava or Flight+Chaos+Caverns)
   Deep Reaver (Axes+Chaos+Caverns)
   Deep Relic (Jewels+Gods+Caverns)

   16%+15%+24%+24%=79%  If Body is forged, then it's 88%.

   With the former, you're very likely to resist the spell.  With the latter
   and with at least 220 Morale, you'll avoid it every time.  This arrangement
   focuses on Earth resistance.  With this set, you can avoid many annoying
   spells and would probably be ideal for PvP combat, since you can just cut
   the enemy down to size whilst inflicting heavy damage of your own.  It won't
   guard you much if it's a Wizard, however.

   What if you just want to train mounts?  I come with this:

   Mirror of PAIN:

   Mirror Helm
   Mirror Armor
   Eric's Bow
   Aegis of (whatever)

   You'll throw back damage every time and train your mount to Lv. 50.  The
   only thing I can't help you with is fast reflexes.  You'll need those to get
   your mounts to Lv. 50.

   A Knight is capable of being flexible with equipment, but experiment for
   yourself.  The items I mentions are just among the best, but there are more
   ways to get your Knight up to snuff.

   Submissions from other players:

   Bishop:

   Equipment
   Circlet of Skulls
   Woodland Cloak
   Erik's Bow
   Lucky Stones

   Spells
   Divine Right
   Stun
   Courage
   Paladin's Aura
   Wake the Dead
   Death Gaze

   Mount: Giant Rat

   Bishop's arrangement revolves around littering the field with skulls and
   Stunning to assist in getting good matches.  Lucky Stunes is there and a
   Lv. 50 Giant Rat will help ensure that you get the first blow.  Bishop
   managed to successfully research Death Gaze (a feat I'm still working on)
   and put that spell as part of this arrangement.  It's truly useful, and if
   the enemy is unfortunate enough to get hit by one, especially early on, the
   battle is pretty much over.

B: Building Exp. [N&HE]

   Since you're a Knight, you have it the easiest.  You can EFFECTIVELY build
   loads of experience the fastest.  Thanks to Divine Right and Promotion, and,
   alongside a Dragonhorn and lots of Purple Stars, you can Knight Lord your
   way to Lv. 50!

   Due to the random seed glitch on the DS, there's some ways for some quick
   experience!  It's best that you play the DS version to take advantage of the
   following trick, as it lacks a random number seeder!

   After powering on the DS and getting into the game, go to Choose Opponent
   and pick any enemy you can beat that has a higher Cunning than you.  The
   first field after powering on the DS is always the same.  Your opponent will
   grab the skull match to the left.  You should go and grab the vertical Red
   Mana match, NOT the horizontal one.  You'll grab some mana and two skull
   matches, one involving a +5 skull, netting you a Heroic Effort in the
   process.

   There are many more tricks involving the DS, so PSP users, you're not going
   to find a definite trick.  Cherish every Heroic Effort you attain.

C: Fighting as a Knight [FASK]

   Without a lot of mana options, your Knight will need to focus on skull
   matches to deal the heavy blows.  Stun the enemy without mercy, though you
   should watch out for when the field has a lot of Purple Stars.  You can
   Knight Lord your way to to bug your enemy consistently.

   Defensively, you have many advantages.  With a lot of Morale, you have a
   low but decent chance of resisting a spell.  This is especially useful if
   a Liche wants to cast Death Gaze on you.

   Knights, like Warriors, focus mostly on damage, but you can take blows of
   your own and can laugh it off.  With a heavy investment in Morale, you can
   basically equip a Mirror Helm, Mirror Armor, and an Aegis, and watch your
   enemy kill itself.  Infict damage whenever you can, and let your enemy kill
   itself slowly.

   On the other hand, if you want to kill your enemy quickly, go for my heavy
   hitter arrangement.  This will speed the slaying of any enemy quickly,
   especially the bosses, like Dugog, Minogoth, or even Bane.
