Black Desert Online Got Two New Classes and More Today, and a New Event Granting a Free Pet

on April 20, 2016 2:23 PM

Today Daum Games Europe launched a new update of Black Desert Online, including the much awaited Musa and Maehwa.

Both classes are inspired by ancient Korean warriors, and fight using sword and short bow, but they differ sensibly in some of their skills and gameplay. You can read the full patch notes at the bottom of the post.

The patch was not the only nice surprise delivered today. To celebrate the new classes, Daum Games launched a new event:

Each day starting today until May 4th, you’ll get a “seal of Maehwa” upon log in (the available reward icon will pop up at the bottom right of the screen).

Once you have a certain number of seals, you can arrange three, six, nine or twelve in your inventory according to one of the following patterns.j9Q29bD After clicking on the small “+” you’ll be granted one of the following prize packages:

  • 3 seals: 2 Blackstone (Armor)
  • 6 seals: 3 Blackstone (Weapon)
  • 9 seals: 5 Fragment of memory
  • 12 seals: 4 Blackstone (Armor) + 6 Blackstone (Weapon) + 10 fragment of memory + 1 pet Hawk

You saw it right: the biggest reward includes a pet hawk, which is pretty awesome considered that they cost $11 in the cash shop. Pets are definitely convenient in the game, as they pick up drops for you, helping you save time, and this helps quite nicely in closing the gap between those who use the cash shop and those who don’t.
