Lord Knossos is a hero appearing in Gigantic.

Official Summary[edit | edit source]

At the battle's end, they offered Knossos the high lord's mantle, but he refused. "You honor me, and you honor the lineage that flows through my veins," he said. "But I cannot lead. I am not ready for the tribe, and the tribe is not ready for me."

Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]

Knossos is, by definition, a DPS hero. His sole purpose is do as much damage as possible in as short a time as possible. This unfortunately comes with some tradeoffs in terms of survivability, and certainly in terms of utility, so pairing him with other heroes is prime to your survival.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Knossos is a bull-like hero in the world of Gigantic. Carrying a heavy blade and able to take mass amounts of punishment, Knossos is perfect for tanking, though his slow movement allows him to be overtaken quite quickly if one is not paying attention.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Knossos is the king of melee, but that comes with its own caveats. His damage output is huge, especially in terms of basic attacks, and his abilities only make this potential damage output higher. He's super flexible, getting in and out of conflict rather easily, but he is rather slow. A group of agile enemies can control his motions, and while he'll likely survive the bulk of such encounters, he can easily be kited around the arena if you're not paying attention, essentially negating your presence.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Bull Rush might be a great attack, but it's an even better escape skill. If you find yourself outclassed, use it to get out of dodge.
  • Gore, Labyrinth, then Skewer is by far your most powerful, if tricky, combo.
  • Go after "squishy" targets for the best bang for your buck. Focusing here will help lower the amount of enemies your team faces, and multiply your effectiveness.
  • Chuck is great for drawing enemies out of groups, but when upgraded, is also a great skill for one on one engagements.
  • Knossos can dominate control points and negate creatures pretty quickly, so ensure you use him for that use case.
  • Speaking of this, killing creatures triggers the Dominator talent, so ensure you kill creatures early to reap this benefit.
  • Depend on healers like Vadasi to extend yourself during engagements, or your usability period will be pretty short.
