This comes as no surprise to those of us already playing, but Tribe has established a presence on Black Desert Online on the Orwen server.
So what is Black Desert?
A Korean Action/RPG Sandbox MMO.
Combat is similar to Blade and Soul, and Tera.
The world portion is something like Star Wars Galaxies, and/or Ultima Online.
There are several types of progression and you are freely able to move between them.
Here is a quick list of what there is.
Level, Combat Skills, Energy(used for professions), and Contribution(House, and Node ownership).
Professions: Gathering, Processing, Cook, Alchemy, Training(Horse Leveling System), Fishing, Hunting, Trade, and Farming.
Gear in this game works more like the Diablo series where its mostly about choosing a set which compliments the way you want to play.
Classes are gender locked, and are as follows,
Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard, Witch, Sorceress, Ranger, Berserker, and Tamer. Soon Blader, Plum, Ninja, and Kunoichi will be added.
Tanks: Warrior, Valkyrie.
DPS: Everyone else.
Healers: There are no pure healers, but Wizards, Witches, and Valkyries can splash heal allies.
So in a nutshell the game is fun!
