Oblivion Knight

An Abyss Knight

Abyss Knights are a type of Oblivion Knight. When Hell hurls its troops at mortal armies, Abyss Knights lead the vanguard.[1]


Abyss Knights are found in Act IV of Diablo II, specifically at the River of Flame and City of the Damned. They are a cross between the blade-wielding Doom Knights and the spell-casting Oblivion Knights.

They carry a longsword on one hand while having colored light emitting from the other hand. The lights on their hand decides the type of the magical missile they cast. Though they have both qualities of their variants, they do not excel in any particular areas.

Those having an 'orange light' cast fire missiles, those with 'blue light' cast cold missiles, while those with 'green light' cast poison missiles. Abyss Knights with a 'purple light' cast pure magic missiles.

Apart from casting missiles, Abyss Knights can also cast the Necromancer's Bone Armor spell.
