If you’re already hoping to roll up an adorable Shai character in Black Desert this summer, there are two things you need to know. First, she’s officially launching on June 26th. And second, you can actually create your Shai starting today and have her all set to go next week. The BDO website exploded today with news of the Shai pre-creation event and all the goodies you can pick up for jumping in early.
And here’s the official lore explanation for why the Shai looks young.
“Shais do not age like humans. They age considerably slower than humans of the world, and even Valentine, the oldest of the Shais, still looks like he is in his early 20’s even though he is 110 years old by the Elion Calendar! And as the years passed like a leaf floating down the river, the young Shai reached 15 by the Elion Calendar. This is a special age for Shais and marks the first test of becoming an adult.”
Massively OP Black Desert columnist Carlo Lacsina got a hands-on with the new class, so stay tuned for his impressions later today in our regular Desert Oasis column!
