Withered Knight (enemy)

From Arknights Terra Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Withered Knight acts as the main boss of Maria Nearl alongside the Corrupted Knight.

Enemy description
A Sarkaz knight with a broken horn who radiates terror and shows clear signs of excessive drug use. Uses a cursed bow in battle. Can shoot multiple targets at once and plant seeds of withering arts.[sic] When the Corrupted Knight falls, takes up the quest and becomes dramatically stronger. Knights that are hostile to him will shift to Wither.

Overview

Gains greatly increased ATK, ASPD, and Movement Speed when a Corrupted Knight dies.

While the Corrupted Knight focuses on powerful melee attacks, the Withered Knight instead focuses on deadly ranged Arts attacks that allows him to inflict heavy damage to friendly units while soaking Arts punishment just as much thanks to his high RES, though his ATK and DEF are on the lower side. In addition, the Withered Knight has the following abilities to bolster his already glaring strength:

  • The Withered Knight's attacks can hit up to two targets within range at once, like that of Spec Ops Caster Leaders and Sarkaz Grudgebearers.
  • A special attack where the Withered Knight fires special arrows at up to three targets within range, telegraphed by his eyes glowing red as he draws his bow, which takes slightly longer; the special arrows stick to the victims without dealing damage but explode after a delay of 2.5 seconds, each dealing Arts damage equal to 160% of the Withered Knight's ATK to the targets and friendly units adjacent to the targets. The special attack has a cooldown of 22 seconds from when the Withered Knight spawns.
  • Should either the Corrupted or Withered Knight leaves the map while both are present together, the other will become enraged (indicated by a red aura surrounding him) and have his ATK, ASPD, and speed increased by 80%, 100, and 150%, respectively. Therefore, it is highly recommended that the player defeats both Knights at the same time or in a short time between each other to save them from the trouble of having to deal with the enraged surviving Knight.
