  • Rarity: Legend
  • Faction: Light
  • Class: Sniper

Wilhelm

Wilhelm - the best tank hero in Unknown Knights

Wilhelm is undoubtedly the best tank hero in Unknown Knights. He may not have the most powerful combination of DPS and defense but is the most efficient at taking heavy hits and protecting his team due to his high HP and Defense stats.

  • Faction: Water
