[Game website] Kakao Games today announced the Ninja and Kunoichi classes will arrive in Black Desert Online on July 20. Other than the 2 new classes, this update will also introduce the new Skill Addon System, which lets players customize their attacks by attaching up to two effects to their characters’ skills. Node and Siege warfare (new Guild vs Guild modes) will also be added on July 17.
The Ninja is an agile close-quarters combatant. With dashes, aerial skills, and even teleportation, Ninjas can get up close to their opponents alarmingly fast. Designed to land precise, deadly strikes, both the Ninja and Kunoichi can conceal themselves until the time is right. When in a tight spot during battles, Ninjas can also make use of stun and debuff techniques to regain the upper hand.
The Kunoichi fights in much the same style as the Ninja but specializes in deflecting attacks with her trusty Kunai (Japanese dagger). A defensive force to be reckoned with on the battlefield, the Kunoichi uses her sharp senses to execute perfectly timed blocks before landing devastating counterattacks. Players who like to challenge themselves should try out the more technical Kunoichi class.
