I am not sure what the difference is between a death knight in wow and a dark knight in the lore of final fantasy series but I love the aesthetic and looks of a dark knight. Am I able to role play and make decisions in the quest line as a good guy or am i robbing innocents?

You are still the Warrior of Light. You will be just as good as any other job. You won't be evil.

Dark Knights aren't evil, they're more or less vigilantes who strike at people of power that victimize their people and can't be touched otherwise. The dark powers they wield are more tied to emotion than anything but I don't want to get too into it since their story is actually really good. But think of it like the whole Jedi/Sith Darkside thing where they're powered by emotion, just without the lean towards being evil and power hungry.

Yah the *Darkness* of dark knights is really just about channeling their pain into power.

None of the jobs are evil. You're the warrior of light either way.

Is this a serious topic

I can't imagine this is a serious topic

But in case it is, dark magic =/= evil. Look up the job description, your greatsword is the beacon to lead the meek through the darkness. In FFXIV lore, Dark Knights are basically vigilantes who work outside the sanctioned Ishgardian justice system to protect the poor and weak and bring justice to those deemed untouchable. The first Dark Knight was a guy who discovered that one of the powerful higher-ups in the Ishgardian Orthodox Church raped kids, and shanked the pedo when the Ishgardian government wouldn't do a thing about it. The dark magic thing came later, but basically you're upholding a long tradition of being Batman.

More like Frank West, the Punisher.
Got a minute? You might learn something.
