Enshrouded: Ultimate Magic Knight Build

Destroy your enemies with this OP build!




Enshrouded presents a lot of options to experiment with while making your character’s build. With all the different gear, skills, weapons, and more, it can be very hard to find a truly good build. The only way to accomplish it is through hours and hours of experimentation.

Most people don’t have time for that, so we are going to be talking about the Magic Knight build here. 

Ultimate Magic Knight Build

The Ultimate Magic Knight Built is a mixture of melee and magic skills, hence called a magic knight. We will be discussing this build in-depth below!


The first things to discuss here are the stats for this build. They are as follows:

  • 13 Constitution 
  • 6 Spirit
  • 7 Endurance
  • 12 Strength
  • 6 Dexterity
  • 15 Intelligence
  • 870 Health
  • 330 Mana
  • 358 Stamina
  • +74% Melee Damage
  • +34% Ranged Damage
  • +79% Magic Damage
  • +82% Critical Damage
  • 5% Crit Chance
  • +10% Backstab Damage
  • +900% Sneak Attack Damage
  • +400% Merciless Attack Damage 
  • 8 Stamina Protection
  • 60 Parry Proficiency
  • 155 Physical Resistance
  • 196 Magical Resistance
  • 100% Poison Susceptibility

As you can see, this build has a large health pool, which is very useful when fighting some of the stronger enemies. With a health pool, even endgame bosses won’t be able to one shot you. 

Similarly, Intelligence is Leveled to 15 so we can get some good skills. One of these is a top tier skill which regenerates your health constantly. It also provides some nice damage buffs.

Strength is leveled to 12 to allow for good damage boosting when using melee weapons. This is mostly a melee focused character, after all, so strength is required to make good use of it.

Keep in mind, stats can be enhanced by using consumable Food items. For example, a Fruit Bowl increases Health Regeneration by 6 and Stamina Recharge by 3. Very useful to have handy before a big fight. 


There’s a few different weapon types that we need to equip for. They are as follows:

Basic Melee Weapon:

The Bronze Sword leveled up is recommended for the basic melee weapon. It has 47 damage and +18 cutting damage. It also comes with piercing bonuses, with a +9 piercing damage bonus. You also get an increased crit chance of 10%.

Axe Melee Weapon:

The recommended Axe for this build is the Hair Splitter Axe. It has pretty similar stats to the Bronze Sword. 47 Damage and +9 cutting damage. It also boosts your Shroud Magic Damage by +9, and Blunt Damage by +9. It also has a boost of crit chance by 5%.

Whatever shield you end up picking isn’t too important. As long as it has a decent Block and Parry Power you’re good. We recommend the Shield of Light, which comes with 17 Block and 90 Parry Power.

There are a few spells that we want to equip ourselves with for optimal play. They are as follows:

  • Eternal Fireball: 144 Damage
  • Eternal Acid Bite: 165 Damage 
  • Eternal Ice Bolt: 79 Damage
  • Eternal Light Burst: 21 Damage
  • Shroud Meteor: 205 Damage
  • Lightning Channel: 20 Damage

While some of these spells have very little damage output, they make up for it with other 

features. Be sure to experiment with all of them and choose your favorites.

With these weapons, armor pieces, rings, shields, and spells equipped, you’re sure to be able to handle any threat in Enshrouded. Just make sure to invest skill points in the skill tree according to your preference as well.
