How do you build a good Rune Knight in Ragnarok Origin? Starting from the very beginning, we should talk about the development line for this type. You’ll start from the Swordsman class. Then, you need to progress to Knight and Lord Knight form. After that, you can evolve your character into a Rune Knight.

To become a Rune Knight, you need to pass the specific tests. This is a part of the job change quest that you can get from the Shining Knight in a bar near Prontera Inn. When you complete the trials, you can start working on your Rune Knight build.

Rune Knights are powerful damage dealers, so you’ll want to focus on getting your Strength (STR) and Agility (AGI) up. Another important stat to boost is the Attack Speed. When it comes to specific skills, we’ll do a complete breakdown from Swordsman to Rune Knight skills.

Note that this skill point distribution is our suggestion to optimize your Rune Knight for damage and effectiveness. Naturally, you’re free to explore other options, i.e., how much to invest into the Riding tree and whether you want to commit to spear specialization.

When it comes to equipment, your choices will be quite broad. For that reason, we don’t want to give you a definitive recommendation here. Instead, we’ll focus on the preferred Enchantment skills. Our ultimate choice here would be Fighting Spirit. When it comes to Cards, we recommend you double down on Attack and Agility, so pick the best available cards that add to those stats.

If you follow these steps, you’ll certainly end up with a formidable Rune Knight build. If you have an alternative strategy—one with different skills or one that doesn’t focus on Attack—let us know in the comments. And for more guides, check out our dedicated Game Guides section!
