Black Desert teases the awakening weapon system

Weapon choice, or lack thereof, is one MMO topic that doesn’t seem to come up very much. Some games allow players to select from a wide range, while others pair a class to a single type of weapon and then call it a day.

Black Desert is going a slightly different way. While some of its classes share weapon types between them, the developers are also creating “awakening” weapons that are specific to a single profession. Steparu reports that two of these special weapons include the scythe for the Sorcerer and an iron fist gauntlet for the Giant.

Awakening weapons will go beyond merely looking nifty; each of them will supposedly have a larger effect on the class itself, although details about what this system entails have yet to be revealed.

Spreading misinformation isn’t quite healthy tbh since what you’re talking about was a concept for the RU version and nothing of the sort has ever been confirmed for NA/EU,, not even from EU CM Olli so..

usagizero Dystopiq I’ve been under the impression that getting +s on gear wasn’t insanely hard. I got up to I think +9 (maybe 10) pretty effortlessly, but maybe trying to get to 15 is where it gets crazy, not sure.

Necromonger Sirly I didn’t know about the subscription server that is good news . Its a shame that Archeage never had one of those too .

qualsiasi usagizero Dystopiq My definition of pay to win ( and I know this varies from person to person )  is that the best gear is instantly attainable through a cash shop in a game with extensive world pvp . 

I would say this falls into a grey area because it sounds like that could be done in this game . The question is how many people would actually do it . I could be wrong but I think it was be a small minority of players . 

But then again there has always been a pay to element in every single mmo that has ever been released if someone wants to take the risk of buying gold from gold sellers .

usagizero Dystopiq “One guy (not sure who) figured if you spend $500 real dollars, and sell the outfits, you can then basically buy what you need to get max gear in game”
I don’t see this as pay2win but a pay2skip, which is normal in f2p games.
The p2w scenario is when the strongest gear is attainable ONLY through spending real money in the cash shop, while f2p players are excluded from those “above max gear” game level experience.

“like enchanting weapons in Tera”
To this day this stupid system still makes me wince, even if it’s only written in someone’s post.
