Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss have revealed more information about the rollout of an update to the class skill systems of Black Desert Online. Starting next week on December 4, 16 classes will sequentially receive new Succession skills that will add a new dimension to all classes’ gameplay. Succession skills will allow players to make the choice between choosing to specialize in their main weapons by sacrificing access to their Awakening skills. In return, they get powerful new skills focused on using their first and original weapons, which is the Longsword and Shield for the Warrior and the Bow and Dagger for the Ranger.
Black Desert explorers can unlock their Succession skills at level 56 by completing a series of quests given to them by the Black Spirit. The Succession skills will be released starting with the Warrior and Ranger kicking off on Dec 4th. To prepare players for the launch Succession skills, a special event has been started. Players can chase a “Mysterious Knight” creature that will reward them with a high increase (+100%) to the amount of Skill EXP they get. This will help players rack up skill points to invest in their new Succession skills.
