Take a look at the gameplay of Black Desert’s Witch

There’s still no hard information on when Black Desert is coming westward, although the game is currently in open beta in Russia and it will be coming over here at some point. We cannot say with any certainty whether watching the Witch character gameplay video down below will ameliorate your desire to wait for the game or exacerbate it. But by all means, do check it out.

The Witch is… well, you have a pretty good idea about what she’s capable of doing just from the name. It involves lots of magic, projectiles, dealing with crowds, all of that fun stuff. Jump on down if you’d like to see the black magic woman doing her thing.

I will definitely play the
game at release, to at least see all areas of the game and world. If
there will be more endgame until then, I might even keep it as my main
MMORPG.

Tried the witch for a few hours in the Russian OBT, the class is interesting to play due to the mix of close and range combat. Besides, the game seems to be worth involving in. Highlights (+/-):
+ Immersive, believable world (it feels truly alive and not designed)
+ many lovely details all around you

+ nice ambience, due to well crafted lights/world design/fitting music
+ combat system is fun, especially if you learn the combos instead of hitting the hotbar

+ I have an upper mid-tier/lower top-tier PC and the performance is great on the highest settings (except when 200 people are stacked on a NPC you need)
+ good questing system (short quest texts, exact guiding, automatic running to quest area [I will disable the last two features for me personally for more immersion/challenge])
+ cutscenes for important NPCs and quests progression

– GUI has a little learning curve and might seem like a clustefuck at first (although everything makes sense once you are used to it)
– mobs are no challenge at all (played up to level 20, it might get harder, but you get the drift quickly and they really should balance it more for the west)
– leveling is too quick; I know there are many people who hate leveling, but for those who do love it, it might be too quick and since you are at level cap quite fast and there is no end game content besides PVP, this should be different
– gender-locked classes and no other race than humans/berserker
– goblins look like Dobby

+/- Rissian OBT servers are overcrowded, I hope the western launch is handled wiser
+/- localization better be good bruh; some voices are still in Korean in the Russian client
+/- the Russian F2P options are not P2W but are not great either

Altogether, the game makes solid attempts at major features, like combat, and brings a good mixture of innovation and good old stuff. The biggest disappointments are already known to followers of the game: no endgame, stupid mobs (and fast leveling). Maybe it’s a blessing that Black Desert will be published in the west so late, so there is a chance that the negative points are cut out.

ClassicCrime deganderson cheers guys. Weird that they chose an area with the openness of a tube station to demo a class in.

MetaDune spacecampclan THANK GOD.  I just wish someone would post a video of gameplay that didn’t have those absurd, annoying FX.

Also I know they’re being sensible by offering the option up front (and clearly realizing that many people find those FX incredibly stupid) but it’s rather horrifying imagining why one need to turn the FX down BEFORE you even connect to the server.  I can just see it, login screen camera shake with each password letter you type lol :)

I found the same when I played the JP beta. Loved the open world and some of the classes but the AI needed a lot of work. It just seemed to lumber around waiting to be killed. Hopefully it improves by the time it rolls around for a western release.

Pashgan It’s a grinder. A lot of the quests actually only increase your contribution and energy caps, they dont even give you xp
