Applied Effect

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Knights Chronicle

The game has especially-named skill effects and they’ll be listed below, including the character-specific effects. You can also check the applied effects in the middle of battle while in Manual Mode by tapping the effect icon on top of the characters' portrait in the lower right corner of the screen or the boss/enemy's health bar in the upper left.

For convenience, we will be skipping obvious and self-explanatory buffs like ATK Increase, DEF Increase, ACC Increase etc. You can find these effects listed in the game’s Help menu.


Effect Description
Penetration Applied All attacks will have the penetration effect, that bypasses shields.
Ignore DEF Attacks will ignore the defense rating of the target. Very dangerous especially when stacked with the Penetration effect.
