<.< I actually like the shield knight. I remember when I was a noob, I'd open with him and follow up with Kesaran and then Acolyte. On a noob account I made with the new starter, I did the same thing except Safiria usually came before Acolyte. Then the turn after I set Acolyte, I'd have enough SP to set a Lv3 thanks to Kesaran's SP gen (I'd still have enough floating SP to keep using his Action while all this is going on). Pretty nice starter refess rush. If the Shield Knight managed to live long enough, he became engage fodder for Safiria.
