This article contains lore or information taken from Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and/or its manual.

Knights are the fighting elite in his Majesty's service. Using the difficult skills required for mounted combat, these warriors wield huge maces in order to crush their opponent's skulls. Their warhorses make them fast and deadly, as they can maneuver much more quickly than an unmounted foe. Knights are well respected throughout the realm, and the tales of their fighting prowess are known far and wide.[1]

Information

Knights are the main melee attacking unit. They are extremely useful as they have a good amount of HP and five points of armour. Their main usefulness is the fact that they are the fastest unit, and can also be upgraded to become even faster, making them useful in luring the enemy into a barrage of arrows. They are also very useful against Catapults and spell casters; Catapults aren't able to hit a Knight due to the former's slow attack speed and a spell caster is only useful from afar.
