Life is moving fast for the new archer of Black Desert Online. It feels like only yesterday that the new class was sniping its way into the game, and now it’s already getting its ascension to the ranks of awakened classes! No more stumbling about asleep while firing arrows. (Yes, we know that’s not what “awakening” means in this context; it’s just funny to think of somnambulism being co-morbid with archery.)Those are there, too! It’s a holiday miracle.
“Like every holiday season, Grandpa Cron will soar through the sky with his fully stocked flying sled to drop special gifts to all the good people in Black Desert Online (actually he doesn’t care if players have been good or not). Gifts include Rudolf Headband, Santa’s Hat, Elion’s Tear and he even drops Christmas trees so players can decorate their houses. Players can also participate in building a snowman together to receive even more rewards such as Grandpa Cron’s Gift x1, Sharp Black Crystal Shard x1, and Hard Black Crystal Shard. On Christmas, the Night Vendor Patrigio will sell Cron Boxes which includes enchanted accessories, JIN Magic Crystals, and other valuable items.”
Surprise! Archer Ascension Quests and Absolute skills will be available tomorrow! Say goodbye to Renown Score. ⚒ For more info on tomorrow's maintenance: https://t.co/knhSddfWsg pic.twitter.com/ymbmxOSt2b
