Last week, Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss unveiled the new Mystic class that will come soon to the Korean servers of Black Desert Online, today they launched a rather stylish teaser trailer.
The teaser focuses on the rather fantastic animation that is, alongside beautiful visuals, pretty much the hallmark of the game, also giving us a glimpse on the mystic’s martial arts, learned in the far East (I’m starting to get a bit confused here, since the Asian-like continent is supposed to be the one to the North, but don’t mind me).
Below you can also read on her lore and skillset.
The Mystic came from a small village in Calpheon that was devastated during the war. She felt abandoned and lost the will to live. One day, a wise martial arts master appeared and took care of her, offering a spark of hope for the future. Later they moved east together and began to live amongst the Oriental people.
The master saw a very powerful energy within her eyes and decided to train her in his ways. He found she had a strong mind that enabled her to stay calm and peaceful even under heavy pressure. But it was difficult for the Mystic to settle in her new home. Oriental people discriminated her because of her blond hair and blue eyes. Additionally, locals became jealous of her highly advanced martial arts skills that she learned through hard training.
One day, the master introduced her to a man who was much like her with the same blond hair and blue eyes. Finally she had a sparring partner, both physically as well as mentally. She confided in him and trusted his thoughts and beliefs. However, after a while he suddenly left the village without saying a word. Saddened by his absence, she followed and embarked on a ship to find him.
The fast-paced Mystic class uses martial arts to dazzle her foes. She is especially skilled in high kicks and uses a shoulder charge move to force her way through enemy ranks. Lightning fast punches keep foes off-guard while she prepares to combo more powerful attacks such as her surging punch moves. Her grace is matched only by her ferocity.
The Mystic will be released on the North American and European servers on the second half of this year, alongside more free content including the massive Kamasylvia Expansion, new world bosses to fight, a co-op horde mode, more siege war content, and a new PvP arena.
At the moment Black Desert Online is available exclusively for PC (both stand-alone and via Steam), but at Microsoft’s E3 press conference we learned that the game is coming for Xbox One and Xbox One X in early 2018. A while ago, we also heard confirmation that it will be released for the PS4 family of consoles as well, even if no info has been given on how long PS4 players will have to wait in order to be able to play the game.
