Daum posts Black Desert’s Tamer Awakening video

    
93

Raise your hand if you’ve been fiddling about with Black Desert’s stand-alone character creator in anticipation for the game’s western release on March 3rd. Now prepared to be really sad, as Daum has just announced the Awakening specialization weapon for the Tamer: the bo staff, with which you’ll get up close and personal in the melee, at least if you’re in South Korea. Westerners won’t be getting this at launch next month; we’ll be waiting a while yet.

This version of the class certainly has a style of its own, and you can watch it in action after the jump!

ihatevnecks DavisKrievins Not sure about Tamer but I don’t think Sorc is a lore reason. They have male Sorc NPCs in a few towns in the game so they do exist.

ninja/blader will not be in the NA/EU initial release.  I think it’s a mistake – if either class pair was in the release, it would really flesh-out the choices, esp for those who want to play a male character.

To be clear, this is a minor thing to me, but it is a “thing”.

Boardwalker Belegorm Why no actually, I have put more than my fair share of time into FFXI and FFXIV, and in both those games it’s more than possible to play it where hitting S in a WASD scheme makes the character move towards the camera.  Also a lot of GW1, where it was less possible but considering the pace of that game you could easily start fighting then rotate the camera to see the action.

There are other MMO’s I have played such as WoW and GW2 where you are pretty much fixed to that camera position (well maybe you can get some times to rotate the camera a bit), but while I did put up with it then, that aspect certainly wasn’t my favourite part of the experience.

Not to gripe about this game too too much, but you can press 1-6 in your sleep for other MMO’s, something tells me in this game you can do something similar except you’re hitting 123456684792982347999 while also erratically dodging around with WASD.  Action MMO combat!  i.e. the combat where you hit more buttons more often while dodging more things than ever before!

Elikal Ialborcales Yeah, I know what you mean. Just look at this cliched, run-of-the-mill, created-from-a-bad-character creator Valkyrie:

Belegorm “only seeing your character from the rear is kind of a turn-off”
Hmm, I’ve never heard this complaint before. It’s…odd. Are you new to MMORPGs?
