Less than one month after Black Desert’s launch on Xbox One, publisher Pearl Abyss has today launched its second free content update, which brings four new classes and two game modes to players. The four classes, Dark Knight, Lahn, Musa and Striker, feature unique combat playstyles and another compelling reason for players to begin their adventure in Black Desert.
Node Wars and Conquest Wars, Black Desert’s signature large-scale PvP modes, support 25-100 players battling for control of specific fortresses around the game’s world. Node Wars will allow Guilds to fight over specific node locations for in-game currency. Conquest Wars, on the other hand, will allow players to fight over entire territories within Black Desert’s world for even bigger rewards. The new classes are as followed:
Dark Knight: Dark Knight wields the beautiful but lethal Kriegsmesser and burns through nature’s energy to amplify her power. Using a variety of ranged magical skills, Dark Knight can confuse her enemies and create opportunities for a deadly combo of attacks.
Lahn: Lahn is extremely agile, with the unprecedented ability to leap and glide through the air over long distances. Combined with the flexibility of her Crescent Pendulum, whether she’s facing enemies head on or raining death from above, she is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Musa: Musa uses a variety of oriental martial arts, focusing mainly on sword skills and his horn bow. Expert swordsmanship allows Musa to unleash quick and deadly combos, making him an incredibly formidable adversary.
Striker: Born in Calpheon and trained by a martial-arts master, Striker is a close-quarters expert with countless years of training and experience. His skill in hand-to-hand attacks results in deadly consequences for those who meet him.
A new large-scale PvP mode, Node Wars, has also been added to Black Desert. Supporting 25-100 players, Node Wars will allow Guilds to fight over specific node locations until the last fort stands. The victorious Guild will be rewarded with gold from part of the worldwide tax collection for the occupied node for that week.
Once per week, players and their guilds can also participate in Conquest Wars. Larger in scale than Node Wars, this event requires players to control the Balenos and Serendia territories and promises even bigger rewards. Guilds will build a Command Post to defend, with the aim to be the last one standing. The victors can claim both the Balenos and Serendia territories, and will be awarded taxes from the entire region for that week.
