Weapons & Armor Dread Knights primarily use massive two handed weapons, the sheer size of which aids them in striking terror into the hearts of their enemies. They are also capable of wielding a one handed weapon and a shield, though most of their abilities do not lend themselves to this style. Dread Knights are capable of wearing medium or heavy armors, and are able to master most types of ranged and melee weapons.

Dreadful Countenance As dread knights fight, their terrifying presence and dark aura gradually overwhelm their enemies. All enemies within a certain range of the dread knight are effected, but particularly the one on whom he is focusing. As their fear grows, the enemy's ability to fight back and defend itself is gradually reduced.

Mobs that provide update: Gulgrethor Death KnightGulgrethor Warlock

These can be solo'd, with some effort, by entering the Keep through the drainpipe hole in the eastern wall or mount-flying to a nearby stone pipe inside that wall. After clearning 1 or 2 mobs guarding the drain hole on the outside, at least one Warlock is accessible singly on foot, and more if flying.

The warlocks, specifically, begin casting Cull at below about 50% HP. Apparently, each mob gives at most a single update. It may take about 10 mobs total to learn the spell completely.
