As you might expect, the rewards for the added risk are much improved, with higher-grade gear and Black Stone up for grabs. Despite how tricky they may be, it’s important not to be discouraged from taking them on, assuming you’ve hit the requisite level and are rocking half-decent gear.
If you try and fail, perhaps it’s time to improve your accessories through magical enhancement. This is a new system that requires you to spend some silver and magical essence. You’ll be able to earn magical essence by feeding your unwanted items to the Black Spirit or by purchasing them from the in-game Pearl Shop.
On top of all that, one of Black Desert’s most popular classes, the powerful Dark Knight, is now open for pre-registration. The Dark Knight uses a two-handed Kriegsmesser to crush her opponents. She excels at both close-quarters and mid-range combat thanks to her mix of melee and magical attacks.
She’s also extremely mobile and fast on her feet, meaning she’s able to get in and out of the action at a moment’s notice. This should prove invaluable when facing high-damage bosses or overwhelming groups of enemies.
It’s currently unclear as to when the Dark Knight class will become available, though I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait based on her arsenal and range of combat skills.
If you’re yet to take Pearl Abyss’ MMO epic for a spin, you’ll find it available for download now from over on the App Store and Google Play. And you’ll find a full list of patch notes on the game’s official site.
