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.
