Is Charlotte a Knight?
I don't have her yet so I'm just asking - not making any criticisms. I'm just going by what I see her do in story - does the hero actually do a Knight's job (protect the party) or is she trying to be AOE DPS like in story mode? Charlotte in story mode looks like she is trying to be an assassin, instead of a Knight so I'm just wondering, for those that know.
she is dps
Shes AOE DPS, pair her with the ritual sword artifact and she's amazing. More of a warrior or assassin than knight
She is a knight by design and theme. the same way Charles and Butcher are.
All three of these heroes build like a primary DPS unit.
Knight is mostly for theme and balance. Because her class Artifact selection is limited to Knight (Elbris, Noble Oath) stuff, this means an appropriate amount of power can be put into her kit for balance.
If she was a warrior, there is no way her skill 3 would do as much damage as it can do. Not with access to things like sigurds.
She is a knight but she is as offensive as you can get in that class. The main thing with her compared to other dps is her access to knight artifacts which can make her fairly tanky on their own. For example sword of ezera reduces dmg by 30% at max if you have 700 def to get that much reduction would require around 1100 def so a 400 def difference and since her base def is 662 that would be the equivalent of 60% more defense roll.
Elbis ritual sword can steal turns when allies are attacked which can def break of give her a free 2 turn attack up. The other major thing is that she is fire and can be used with mascot hazel since hazel has a substantially easier time dealing with fire units.
she's a warrior with knight artifacts just like how lilibet is a thief with warrior artifacts.
Just like corvus who is a warrior but with knight abilities.
Like what @blah40000 and @mikhailyui said.
It's to balance their kits.
Charlotte is like Charles. More a bodyguard than a knight
