Black Desert console players are getting the new Hashashin class first

Well, this is a decision that will no doubt draw forth reasoned discourse and carefully formatted reactions: Console players of Black Desert will be the first players in the Western versions of the game to get the new Hashashin class, which will arrive this coming Wednesday, July 22nd, as a timed exclusive.

For anyone who’s not familiar with this class, the Hashashin is capable of manipulating sandstorms to attack, teleport, and ambush enemies, utilizing the Shamshir sword to slice up his foes. The class was first unveiled during the Heidel Ball.

Why are console players getting this class first? As explained in a developer post, the Guardian class’ arrival to the console version has to be delayed, and so PS4 and Xbox One players are getting the Hashashin first as an apology. While players will have to wait a few days to play the Hashashin, they can pre-create one right now and get a bunch of rewards for doing so such as an inventory expansion coupon, a Black Cloaked Cat pet, and Secret Book of Old Moon and Blessed Message Scroll boost items.

As for when PC players will get the Hashashin, we’re not sure yet, but it’s already on the test center, so you can go check it out too.

As a side note, and in all seriousness, he’s absolutely glorious! The guys have most of the female classes as their waifus and I can’t wait to create my own hushu!

Hashashin = Assassin. Literally. It’s where the word assassin comes from.

To be fair, the allusion to hashish isn’t wrong.

The word literally comes from the Arabic for ‘hashish eaters’, referring to the (possibly apocryphal to some degree, but likely at least partially true) legend that a particular cult of killers in the Middle East in the 11th/12th centuries were indoctrinated/trained by consuming hashish.

Damnit, I’m just waiting on the guardian on console!

I can only imagine all the stoner jokes/names/memes we’ll see as this class rolls out. To be blunt, I imagine it’ll be pretty mind numbing.

“We know we fucked up and made you guys wait extra long to get the last class so to make it up to you guys we’re going to give you this first and instead fuck up with everyone else and make them wait this time!” – Pearl Abyss logic.

Seriously, that is some of the dumbest logic I’ve heard. We’re going to punish players on different platform because we screwed stuff up.
