Black Desert’s new Guardian class drops January 22, with preroll on December 24
We know, we know, this week is a little weird with Black Desert, given that the weekly updates happened on a Tuesday yesterday and not Wednesday as usual. Blame the holiday, right? But as it turns out, Pearl Abyss had something fun planned for today anyway: a reveal for what’s coming next, specifically the new Guardian class. First teased in November, the Guardian now has a formal launch date on PC of January 22nd, though she’ll be available for preroll on Christmas Eve.

“The Guardian is a female combatant from the mountains who follows the will of the ancient dragon Omua. This hardened warrior must wade through the turmoil of her fragmented memories and willingly made a pact with the Black Spirit in search of Ynix, the holy flame that could kill even the gods… The Guardian wields a battleaxe and shield and uses heavy melee attacks to suppress her enemies. She charges enemies and grabs them by the neck to smash them with her shield as her axe mercilessly hacks away at her foes. She is the bastion of the battlefield and strikes with perfectly calculated blows to fend off all who dare oppose her. The Guardian uses a variety of skills to control the ebb and flow of the battlefield with wide and powerful strikes of her axe and shield.”

She’s even got a shiny new video too.

I sincerely hope the awakening speeds her up, cause so far what I’ve played of her in Kr even at max attack speed she’s painfully slow and too many skills right now have …. I’ll say… excessive amounts of wind up esp in comparison to how quickly a lot of other classes can move in and nuke you in seconds now a days.
Gonna be optimistic cause I absolutely love her aesthetic and theme T.T

Funnily enough, most of the comments are about her attire – and entirely warranted!

With Jan, 20-ish release they’ll miss the whole XMas / new year sales season.

That is most likely entirely intentional.

This company is basically run by the marketing team.

Interesting, but (00:27) why is she wearing what appears to be an inflatable life vest?

I mean, you’re only supposed to pull the cord and inflate those things when you hit the water. CLEARLY she did it early.

“She charges enemies and grabs them by the neck to smash them with her shield as her axe mercilessly hacks away”

So, three hands? Didn’t see that in the video, but that would be novel

Oh man it’s really tough pulling this axe out of solid rock. I better use my high heeled boots to get a better foot position for leverage.

If you want realism fantasy games aren’t what you should be playing. May I recommend Kingdon Come : Deliverance or a slew of other games that are more “realistically” accurate? Not to mention that kind of boot design heel wise is more often than not what women’s boots look like in general (i know of quite a few winter boots like that minus the tattered wrapping around em)
