“This one is called the Altar of the Destrier. Accept its gift, and you will become like a war god's lightning unleashed, lancing across the battlefield, fearless of all who stand against you! Only those who walk the path of the gold knight may receive its boon.”

Notable Skoguls

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia


The name 'Skogul' appears to be a reference to a figure in Norse mythology (specifically a valkyrie) who is sent by Odin to select members for his court, and can alternatively refer to the root word in Old Norse which means 'shaker'.

The Skogul's Japanese name "Geirolul" was the name of another one of Odin's valkyries, and the name means "spear-waver" which matches the class' exclusive use of lances.


  • The Skogul is one of the classes with most Movement in the game, having a cap of 10.
