Why yes, hello there. I did make a reference to a spritecomic from back in the day. It’s appropriate, though, considering today’s arrival of the Black Desert Online Lahn Awakening and the weapon she now wields: a pair of curved swords attached to chains. Or, sword-chucks, yo.
Okay, they’re not actually called sword-chucks, they’re called the Crimson Glaives and they allow the Awakened Lahn to swing them in wide swaths to carve huge areas of damage or draw them to her hands to dice up a single target in typical flashy BDO style. In order for Lahn players to start their journey to swinging these new weapons about, they must be level 56.
Today’s Lahn Awakening patch also introduces a Lahn-specific leveling event from now until June 27th, where players can collect Lahn Seals for rewards, take on Lahn challenges, and claim additional goodies for getting their Lahn characters to a certain level.
The new patch has also updated the spawn table of the MMO’s world bosses and made a number of adjustments to the game’s other classes. You can scour the patch notes here and watch the Awakened Lahn in action below.
References aside, the Crimson Glaives once again demonstrate the astonishing skill of the character animators of Black Desert Online. The newly Awakened Lahn looks like a dizzying blender of steel, chain, and pretty dresses and we hope fans of the class enjoy their new toys.
Today is the Black Desert Online Mystic Awakening. She has had ample time to sleep, she has had a really nice breakfast with organic coffee, and she is ready to unload some sea dragon-powered beatings on the enemies in her way.
The new Awakening for the Mystic grants the class access to the Cestus weapon and a variety of skills that utilize the crushing power of the sea and the dragon Banha. The quest for Awakening opens up with the Black Spirit after you level your Mystic to 56.
In addition to the new Awakening, the latest update to Black Desert Online introduces Campsites for players to plant and take advantage of while out adventuring. Campsites can be upgraded with features such as repairing or buying certain items, currency exchanging, or item storage.
The update also adds a new Flurry of Snowflakes event running from January 4th through January 24th where players can earn Snowflake currency to trade in for Accessory Boxes. The update has also made the expected adjustments to existing classes, monsters, items and more. You can take in the full patch notes here.
Another class, another Awakening. That said, the Mystic’s Awakening most definitely looks like it has some grunt to it. We’re most pleased by the addition of Campsites, however. Considering how far one can roam in Black Desert Online, having a ready-made resting place can be a big benefit.
