It considerably reduces knock back when struck by enemies but also lowers Plague Knight's traction meaning he doesn't stop immediately
The reduced knockback is particularly useful, as contrary to the other playable knights, Plague Knight takes a lot of knockback from enemies.
Additionally, if feeling particularly comfortable with bomb bursts, Plague Knight might find himself spending less time on the ground anyway making the reduction in traction less of a penalty.
