Mechanized Knight

Mechanized knights are mounted artificers that ride into battle upon a gearworks mount. Trained in battle techniques, the mechanized knight utilizes his artifice to enhance his weapons and armor, allowing him to engage his enemies in direct combat. A mechanized knight has the following class features.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency

The mechanized knight is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with light armor, and with shields (except tower shields).

Gearworks Mount (Su)

This is exactly like the artificer’s ability of the same name, except that the mechanized knight gains a gearworks machine at 1st level, and must choose the quadruped base form. In addition, he uses Table: Engineered Gearworks Machine Base Statistics of the Gearworks Engineer archetype to determine his gearworks mounts abilities and advancement, but reduces the number of upgrade points his mount gains at each level by 2. Thus, a gearworks mount gains only 1 upgrade point at 1st level, 2 upgrade points at 2nd, and so on.
