'Black Desert Online' (ALL) Rolls Out Archer Awakening Powers, Winter Wonderland Event

by Rainier on Dec. 19, 2018 @ 2:40 p.m. PST

Black Desert Online is an open-world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that rejuvenates the genre.

With the deepest character customization of any game currently on the market, Black Desert Online allows for unprecedented detail in character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world, and extensive lore will enthrall both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs.

Travel through the lands in search of treasure and adventure or become one of the top craftsmen in the land. Set up trade routes and breed horses or compete against other guilds in epic siege warfare.

Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games announced that Archer’s Awakening is available in-game. This popular new class could already use his Awakening weapon when he was introduced to Black Desert Online last week. Now, players can untap his full potential by learning his Awakening skills by completing the Archer Ascension questline, which becomes available at level 56.

Archer’s Awakening skills will definitely make his Greatbow even more devastating.

  • Righteous Smite: Shoots an arrow infused with the power of light. It moves slowly, but has enough power to decimate anything once it explodes upon impact.
  • Watcher: Strengthens the Greatbow with the energy of light for 30 sec.
  • Piercing Light: With steady aim, gathers the energy of light to deliver a powerful arrow strong enough to split light itself.
  • Ravenous Talon: Hits with the Greatbow before stabbing the enemy.
  • Flow: Light's Trail: Carefully takes aim after certain skills to deliver a finishing blow.

Players who level-up their Archer can get special rewards when reaching level 56, 57, and 58. Darkness Shatterer title can be won if all ten Ascension quests have been completed.

In addition, new Absolute skills for its main weapon have been added. Absolute skills have higher attack power and hit counts than the existing main skills and can be learned by achieving a certain character/ skill level.

Grandpa Cron is coming to town

Like every holiday season, Grandpa Cron will soar through the sky with his fully stocked flying sled to drop special gifts to all the good people in Black Desert Online (actually he doesn’t care if players have been good or not). Gifts include Rudolf Headband, Santa’s Hat, Elion’s Tear and he even drops Christmas trees so players can decorate their houses.

Players can also participate in building a snowman together to receive even more rewards such as Grandpa Cron’s Gift x1, Sharp Black Crystal Shard x1, and Hard Black Crystal Shard.

On Christmas, the Night Vendor Patrigio will sell Cron Boxes which includes enchanted accessories, JIN Magic Crystals, and other valuable items.
