'Black Desert' (ALL) Adds New Character Classes

by Rainier on Jan. 8, 2020 @ 7:15 a.m. PST

Black Desert is an open-world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that rejuvenates the genre.

With the deepest character customization of any game currently on the market, Black Desert allows for unprecedented detail in character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world, and extensive lore will enthrall both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs.

Travel through the lands in search of treasure and adventure or become one of the top craftsmen in the land. Set up trade routes and breed horses or compete against other guilds in epic siege warfare.

The console versions of Black Desert have released two character classes, available now for all players. 

Kunoichi, the Mistress of Blades, has finally come to the Xbox, possessing a kunai shortsword and the following skills:

  • Flash Slash - Kunoichi disappears and unleashes powerful hits upon her enemies.
  • Kuno Stab - Using her elite reflexes, the Kunoichi uses her Kunai to stab the vitals of her enemies, rendering them useless.
  • Ninjutsu: Shadow Explosion - The Kunoichi draws power from the shadows and unleashes an explosion in front of her, knocking back opponents.
  • Tragic Blade - The Kunoichi deceives her opponents to think that she is vulnerable, and during their next attack she picks the opportune moment to strike a killing blow.

Tomorrow, the much-anticipated Valkyrie, Elion’s Chosen, will be released for players on the PS4.

Armed with both a sword and a shield, she boasts an even assortment of offensive and defensive capabilities. She comes with the following skills:

  • Celestial Spear - The Valkyrie raises her sword to the sky can calls down a spear thrown by Elion himself, knocking Valkyrie’s foes to the ground. 
  • Judgement of Light - The Valkyrie calls out for Elion to deliver his final judgement on those unworthy. The power of the blast causes enemies to bounce high in the air, dealing an incredible amount of damage.
  • Sacrum Ferit - Using her powerful shield to open up the enemies defences, the Valkyrie lunges in with her Lancia, piercing through multiple enemies. 
  • Hastiludium - The Valkyrie charges into the front lines, hitting all those in front of her with her powerful Lancia attacks.

In addition, Adventurers can enjoy a new weapon and combat style unlocked through Vakyrie’s awakening event. By reaching level 56,Valkyrie can be awakened, allowing them to use their new weapon Lancia. She can utilize this weapon to defeat her enemies with new devastating combos.
