Divinity Original Sin 2 Builds – Death Knight (Warrior)



Divinity 2 Builds Guide for the melee warrior: Death Knight. Players utilizing this style of character will use a mix of Warfare, Necromancer and most likely Polymorph Skills to maximize damage and effectiveness.

Death Knights use primarily Strength and Constitution for high damage and Health while healing via Necromancer Skills and the passive healing that comes from the Necromancer Ability.

Players can play this Build as any race, even Undead as Necromancer Skills and passive healing does heal them as well.

Players can use either a Shield, Two-handed Weapon or even duel wield if they so wish. They all have their strengths and weaknesses.

Stay tuned because we have more Build Guides coming next week!

I know it's been a while and stuff might have changed, but how do you have so many skills with 14 memory? Am I missing something? I just recently started and if I understand Memory correctly 14 memory would give 8 skill slots. and I see around 10, unless some of those aren't actual skills from books.

a dead knight or a juggernaut?

I made my melee dps a Dk, more or less, and oh boy is it satisfying to see him 2-shot an enemy with a greathammer, then get extra ap to finish off his buddy.

I'm not so good in this game because i dont play it that much right now but can you use Fane or a undead for this build? can they be healed with necromancy?

Nodjia

So, I doubt I'll get an answer here, but I'm going to try and hope. I've noticed in a LOT of DOS2 videos involving builds and skills that when a player uses a multi-target hitting ability such as whirlwind, or bouncing abilities such as shield toss that a line is drawn to each target that will be hit, or to the initial target with a "bounce line" from the first target to the second. My game doesn't seem to do this, so I never know if my "bounce" effects are going to hit people. Is this just a prior patch… Read more »

trying a version of this in DIvinity OS EE so far it feels pretty cool witchcraft and man at arms and maybe some tenebrium later on for aesthetic though dont know how practical itll be for tactician but if i had this one for PC then i would do this build 100%

Although it says death knight, the abilities are very Paladin-like

That is the way a game should "evolve"! Dragon Age 2/Inquisition devs has much to learn.

See, You say this can't carry if your team isn't up to snuff. But I (somewhat accidentally) had a deathknight dwarf with living armor and bone cage. Who managed to win entire encounters solo (usually after poor positioning attempts by team mates) using the corpses of his former allies as bombs and buffs. So I don't think you give the deathknight enough credit.

You lost me at "Harder to be CC'd by elemental effects than physical ones." The enemy can literally cast Hailstrike and throw a Water Balloon and freeze your ass without MA. Shock is the most brutal debuff in the game and it stacks and is very easy to apply. Step in shocked water or blood? Instant stun. Now, these may only be concerns because I've only played on Honour Mode, but I don't think so.

What is going on in 0:05 ? Is that a boss fight? I recognize the area in Stone Garden, but never fought those guys.

I naturally came up with a build very similar to this one on my own, except utilizing elemental affinity, though I'm having some issues with not having enough blood on the battlefield and stumbled into this video while trying to look up a solution. My problem is that at my level the elf ability Flesh Sacrifice does -5 constitution, and Raining Blood costs 2 AP and even though it's both a hydro & necro skill, it only gets the elemental affinity -1AP reduction from standing in blood and not water.

What default class should you pick when making a death knight? Knight, Fighter, or Battlemage? Or does it not matter?

Brommith Bloodbeard

This is pretty bad. Way too many necromancy skills that you're really never going to spend the AP on since most every single one is going to do piss damage from being statted off INT. Lemme make this easy for you… NecroknightSTR > CON You don't need any more than 15 to 20 points into CON at MOST.Juice the shit out of STRJuice the shit out of WarfareGet 2-4 points into Necromancer so you have a good vampiric base to work withTake Picture of Health so that you can focus into Warfare ENTIRELY for damage output since 2h is laughably… Read more »

why is the warrior + nhecro build called inquisitor in game and deathknight on youtube? clicks?

Since summoner requires a rather hefty investment into summoning itself to make the summons worthwhile, this build works best with a teammate who has summoning rather then giving summoning to the build in itself. On our first tactician playthrough my wife's companion is specced similiar to your deathknight while her character is a summoner. She uses her deathknight to liter the battlefield with blood using blood rain for her totems and both characters have plenty of support skills to help each other out. She can use rallying cry to heal the blood knight and restore his magic armor, one of… Read more »

dont know about comeback kid, alot of enemeys hit multiple times, and can hit you once again to finish you off after the perk is triggered

Personally i did 10 Necro, 10 Warfare and 10 2 handed( you can easely achieve those numbers with gears etc and still splurge on other things) Max Strength and Wits for high init and crit% then Con. Undead character of course, a few points in Geo to get a few Poison skills, to heal yourself and damage your foes at the same time. Teleportation of course to get those pesky long range dudes thats too far aways from you to feel "the Decaying love" you want to share with them. Bone cage and Living Armor talent to keep up, Bone… Read more »

I think I'll do this with an undead character to make it a real Death Knight.

I feel like necro doesn't really synergise that well with armor. Puts you in a position where you want to be losing actual HP or all your healing goes to waste.

Malohn

The game isn't difficult. However it has horrible balancing whenever you enter a new arc. I swear, mobs and bosses in arc have 17k physical Armor and 14k Health. what

2handed does not only increase your damage output by 50% you can make it 150% at least by taking a crit heavy build.

Can you do a rouge build? I went for a summoning rouge build but i also spent points on other things like pyro and gero and necro. Im level 10 but damn i am struggling in Driftwood.

People can't figure out builds on their own?
What kind of "retard" era are we living in?

Thomas Binney

Excellent concise video. I would argue you can hold off on Picture of Health until your 3rd or 4th Talent, since it scales off of Warfare and is therefore not that interesting until Warfare has a few points. Three, six, even nine percent increase in vitality early on is probably not more useful than Opportunist, Executioner, or Living Armor. But this is strictly my opinion.

Subscribed because I love how the video was done.

this build is bad, go melee staff with intelligence/necro/warfare, with enough str for gear

This wont work with an undead character will it? Would make you look badass but I don't know if the healing would work. (Disclaimer- I don't own the game, but the edge of buying it lol)

You should play as undead if it is your first time. It is so easy as there is almost always poison on the battlefield. There is never healing surfaces for others as that would require blessing. Also, the poison flask is way superior to the healing flask as the normal healing only gives you 30 healing and the poison flask is around 50-60 and also gives you more health each turn for 2-3 turns. I know that Larian studios said that the game is harder playing as a undead because you have to keep your clothes on cuz people would… Read more »
