Black Desert Online, the MMORPG from Peral Abyss and Kakao Games is launching the Guardian class and it arrives on 22nd January.
Hitting home across all platforms, yes that means mobile too, the Guardian is an entirely new type of character. Wielding a battleaxe and a hefty shield this warrior hails from the mountain wilderness and follows the will of the dragon Omua. As they wander through their shattered memories, players who take on the Guardian will make a pact with the Black Spirit to find a holy flame called Ynix.
The Guardian is, like far too many eastern character classes, gender locked but with a bit of a twist. This fearsome melee class is a female-only selection and players can get a glimpse of her power in the new trailer that has just dropped for the update, although she still looks a bit cold in my opinion. Guardians are all for close-quarters combat, rushing their enemies and striking with perfectly calculated blows to fend off all who dare oppose her. Between her axe and shield, this bastion of the battlefield can unleash some of the following skills on her opponents.
- Boulder Crush: The Guardian smashes down her battleaxe three times with powerful, rock splitting force dealing massive damage.
- Mountain Slam: The Guardian smashes the ground, causing tremors that deal damage to foes around her.
- Black Blood Circle: The Guardian draws the forces of the earth into her axe to create a circle around her, enemies can enter this circle at their own peril
- Mutilation: The Guardian charges energy and sweeps the foes in front of her of their feet with her battleaxe.
- Black Blood Slaughter: The Guardian releases charged energy from the Mutilation skill with a powerful blast that deals a high amount of damage.
