Black Desert Online is a fantasy MMORPG published by Kakao Games and developed by Pearl Abyss. They have just issued a press release about the newest class in the game, the Dark Knight. The game will host the Awakening of this new class in one week, after the usual weekly maintenance on Wednesday.
The Dark Knight class has been one of the best-received classes to date. Many players have been playing her non-stop since the release on the NA and EU versions of Black Desert Online, which took place on March 1st. Now that the players have played her enough and leveled up, it’s finally time for them to receive her Awakening. For every class, once you’ve leveled up your character to level 56, you get to ‘awaken’ your weapon.
Dark Knight’s weapon, Vediant, is a set of phantom blades that come in different sizes, and they have a very special ability. These unique blades are capable of draining the life from enemies. Vediant gives her the ability to rush through groups of enemies while she’s performing strong ranged and melee attacks. These two combined can be very deadly, but also useful if you’re low on HP. If a player learns to correctly chain these attacks, he or she will be able to gain mana while also dealing bonus damage.
The press release also mentioned some new content that is coming soon to Black Desert Online. Aside from the new Kamasylvia that is coming to the game soon, there are even more exciting things on the way. The developers plan to make an announcement about these updates via Twitch on the 8th of April. The stream will mirror PearlAbyss and Kakao’s Korean stream, but localized in English. It starts at 3 AM UTC and will discuss the LIVE PvP tournament and other new content that is about to come.
