Kakao Games (formerly Daum Games) announced today that the much awaited new classes Ninja and Kunoichi are coming to Black Desert Online on July 20th.
While at first sight one could think that they’re simply gender-swapped version of the same class, they actually come with subtle differences.
“The Ninja is an agile close-quarters combatant. With dashes, aerial skills, and even teleportation, Ninjas can get up close to their opponents alarmingly fast. Designed to land precise, deadly strikes, both the Ninja and Kunoichi can conceal themselves until the time is right. When in a tight spot, Ninjas can also make use of stun and debuff techniques to regain the upper hand.”
“The Kunoichi fights in much the same style as the Ninja but specializes in deflecting attacks with her trusty Kunai. A defensive force to be reckoned with, the Kunoichi uses her sharp senses to execute perfectly timed blocks before landing devastating counterattacks.”
On top of that, the Skill Addon System will also be implemented with the same patch:
“This update will also introduce the new Skill Addon System, which lets players customize their attacks by attaching up to two effects to their characters’ skills. Improvements will be made to the Skill Reset system, making it easier for players to redistribute their points without losing skill addons.”
