Black Desert Online Classes List and Description

CrossbowRa’ghonGreatbowRanged

Archer’s Crossbow allows the bearer to move about freely, while Ra’ghon is a special glove that brings out the power of the light. He has refined his skills to be able to move swiftly while maintaining deadly accuracy to overtake his enemies. Archer never stops moving while raining bolts upon his foes. He can also concentrate his powers to launch a powerful shot.

With Greatbow in hand, Archer stands above the battlefield staring down at his enemies. Greatbow is much larger than a regular bow, and his agility harmonizes with powerful arrows that are each as long as a spear. With Greatbow’s capability to fire from a remarkably long-range, he can deal lethal damage more quickly and from farther away.

Berserker

AxeOrnamental KnotIron BusterAxe/Ornamental KnotMelee

Berserkers instil fear in their enemies with a battle axe in each hand and various grabs to stop them in their tracks. His monstrous axes simply eviscerate enemies, with grabs that ensure the Berserker is a threat to anyone that crosses his path. The sheer chaos they bring to the battlefield is a definite boon, but the heart of their power lies in his versatility. They can shake up enemy bases, protect allies, and much more.

Berserker awakens and equips a hand cannon called the Iron Buster, allowing them to bombard enemies from a distance. The greater threat of the Iron Buster is its utility. Not only is it able to deal massive damage, it allows this monstrous class to jump high up into the air and slam down on the ground. He can also launch off the ground using the blast of the Iron Buster to get anywhere they need to be, and seeing this behemoth fall from the skies strikes fear into the hearts of even the toughest enemies. Just as a Sorceress brings chaos in deception, so too do Berserkers with their sheer presence.

Succession Berserker picks up his Axe and Ornamental Knot once more to brutally overwhelm his foes. Whereas Tantu’s Iron Buster helped make up for his technical weak points, the Berserker returns to honing the self. Born with exceptional strength and physique, he takes on enemy attacks at the frontlines, protecting his allies as both an offensive and defensive player. Show any weakness before the Berserker, and his barrage of attacks may relieve you of your will to fight.

ShamshirHaladieDual GlaivesShamshir/HaladieMid-range

The beauty of his crescent-shaped Shamshir, reminiscent of a crescent moon, belies how quickly Hashashin can sweep through desert foes with ease. His Haladie, brimming with sand magic, affords him the ability to manipulate and meld with sand itself. Able to disappear and reappear in an instant, or summon countless whirlwinds to shred his foes, his repertoire of abilities leaves his dumbfounded enemies no way to counter. Some are mere illusions, others will entrap his foes, leaving them defenceless to be mercilessly cut down by his sharpened Shamshir. Blessed with the divine power of Aal, the Hashashin’s blindingly fast movements and precision strikes deal critical damage to enemies.

Awakened Hashashin takes up Dual Glaives to purge the foes of Aal, after having overcome his trials and received the true blessing of Aal. Wielding the enormous dual blades as if they were light as a feather, he unleashes a flurry of unavoidable attacks, pushing his enemies to the brink. Hashashin overcame Hadum’s temptations, which appeared before him disguised in the voice of Aal, by conquering Hadum’s shadow. And by the authority of the sands, he absorbed the enemy’s power and created the sand serpent, which he unleashes to make his foes quiver in fear.

Upon Succession, Hashashin can move with greater speed and casts even stronger spells. Having mastered the power of the Haladie, Hashashin breezes through the sandstorms he unleashes upon the battlefield, blinding enemies and catches them unawares. He surprises foes from within his whirlwinds of sand, or sets the whirlwinds onto his enemies, confusing them from afar. With even stronger Haladie spells, Hashashin can now quickly catch his opponents off guard with mighty attacks.

Musa

BladeHorn BowCrescent BladeBlade/Horn BowMelee

Musa enters battle with his Blade and Horn Bow. He is a master of eastern martial arts, extremely quick and great with skill combos. When he uses the skill Chase, he is able to take the initiative due to his speed. This allows him to dominate and stay the predator, not the prey. Rather than facing multiple opponents at a time, he is better suited to target a single enemy’s weakness with a quick strike and retreat. This gives him a unique style in causing confusion with hit-and-run tactics. He deals the greatest single target damage.

Awakened Musa takes up his Crescent Blade, a large scimitar shaped blade, and delivers attacks in elegant slashing motions. He maintains his maneuverability and nimbleness, but with much heavier swings compared to his Blade. This allows Musa to smash through enemy lines and crush all that stand in his way. A bevy of new skills makes him harder to control, but mastery of these new tools bestows a power that is well worth the wait.

Upon Succession, Musa wields Blade and Horn Bow in battle to take down enemies mercilessly. The swing of his blade is even sharper than before and deals immense damage to cut through the cycle of karma of his past. He confuses enemies with quick steps, then uses Stamina to strike the decisive blow. He strikes down his foes with every attack of the Blade and Horn Bow and seizes control of the battlefield.

Ninja uses Shortsword as their main weapon and can choose between two sub-weapons. It is an assassin class that uses Shuriken to go completely offensive or Kunai for more defense. They combine Ninjutsu and stealth to appear behind enemies in an instant to deliver a fatal blow. Few, if any, can withstand a barrage of attacks from a Ninja. Unlike Kunoichi, however, Ninja cannot block attacks, So it is best for them to stay hidden as long as they can, and go in for the kill when they are certain they will succeed.

Six katanas come together to form one Sura Katana. Becoming one with this weapon, he becomes a shadow on the battlefield that appears only to deliver quick and power single blows to cut down his enemies. No longer a silent killer, he can deliver finishing blows the moment someone lets down their guard, decimating their foes. If you can even see the Ninja, it may already be too late. The lucky few who survive his wrath say that his shadow looks like the phantom of battle, “Sura.”

Upon succession, Ninja once again returns to his trusted Shortsword and Shuriken to decimate his foes. The Sura Katana served him well, but with the lives of his loved ones on the line, he chooses to improve upon what was most familiar to him. He can perfectly conceal his movement to get up close to his enemies. He then unleashes devastating blows that leaves them bleeding and finishes them off with a clean strike. Honing his skills to be more agile and dangerous than ever, Ninja’s presence on the battlefield can immediately be felt but not seen.

Sage wields the Kyve, a weapon of his own creation, and the Talisman, which he controls with his own magics, to freely move between points in space. Sage is the Last Ancient, originally from an Ancient Kingdom whose ruins are scattered all over the world, awakened after a long slumber. He wields the infinite power of the Kyve, which instantly alters space to inflict devastating damage upon his opponents. If suddenly assaulted by his foes, he can quickly unleash a blast to push them away or use a variety of magics such as shifting his form to escape from danger.

Reclaiming the Kibelius he crafted many moons ago, the awakened Sage is now able to access all of his once dormant ancient skills. By concentrating momentarily, Sage can draw from the inherent power of the Kibelius. When fully charged, Sage’s primal power makes quick work of his foes, as fast as lightning flashing in a storm. Sage can also summon Arkanon, an ancient weapon empowered by his Kyve, This powerful weapon enables Sage to move unpredictably between enemies and wreck havok in battle. With such an arsenal, all who face the Sage will be sure to meet an electrifying end.

Upon Succession, Sage fully restores the once-sealed powers of the Kyve to completion, to take on his fate once more. Sage thus gains the power to manipulate not just space but time as well. He can now accelerate the flow of time around him to reduce the cooldowns of his skills, allowing Sage to unleash powerful attacks when his enemies least expect, who may suddenly find themselves out of space and time.

Striker’s physical prowess makes his body itself a deadly weapon. With Gauntlet and Vambrace to protect his fists and arms, he can combo multiple skills so naturally that it looks like a single, endless skill. No matter what skills he may be using, his movements always flow together like water, whether they be grabs, knock ups, or any of his other numerous techniques.

Striker overcame a fight within himself. Victory over the physical manifestation of his energy, called Echo Spirit, unleashed his awakened state. When the awakened Striker engages in hand-to-hand combat, he resembles a ferocious beast that’s lost its mind. There are numerous skills he can use after a grab skill, so he tends to do much better against fewer opponents. Once he takes hold of an enemy, he can deal a huge burst of damage by combining his grabs and Spirit Echo skills.

Succession Striker is able to store the violently exuding energy of the beast and draw from it in times of need. Seeking true, inner strength over observable fury, the Striker has trained long and hard to control his fighting aura. The energy of the beast emitted after swift attacks inflict powerful damage over quick intervals, protecting and encircling the Striker. Lose sight of the Striker hiding his aura during his approach, and he will knock you out with one powerful blow.

Corsair is armed with Serenaca, a flexible blade that can change its length at will, and Mareca, the jewel of the sea that grants the bearer the power of the tides. As a melee fighter, her free-form bladework is made up of fluid combos centered around unique rope movement skills that keep her afloat. No one is quite as spontaneous as the Corsair when she glides about using her rope maneuvers only to suddenly protract her blade and strike her opponents at their most vulnerable moment. Using the mysterious powers of Mareca, Corsair can transform into a mermaid with the ability to summon gigantic waves to crush her opponents as she dances with the Dream Whales from the Lost Sea of Dreams. Like any good seafaring pirate, she can quickly move about in the water and remain submerged longer than others.

Upon Succession, Corsair takes the last remaining Song of the Waves from the Lost Sea of Dreams and unlocks the dormant power of her Mareca so she may begin her long voyage once more. Now harnessing the power of the waves, Corsair easily breaks her enemies’ defenses with the dance of her Dream Whales, now more energized than before, and waves infused with the power of the Mareca. With increased movement fluidity, she dives relentlessly into the center of enemy lines to drown them out with the might of the sea.

Dark Knight wields the lethal but beautiful Kriegsmesser. She is the daughter of Sylvia, whose beauty resembles the moon. Her power as a magical swordsman comes from amplifying the energy of spirits. She can attack both in front of her and beside her, dashing between foes and rendering them all helpless with instantaneous, decisive blows. Despite being a melee class, she cannot take a lot of hits. Instead opting to block using her Kriegsmesser or attack from range.

Awakening bestows Dark Knight with Vediant, enabling perfect control over the spirit’s power. She can summon Kriegsmesser to attack enemies close by, summon Phantom Blades to hit a large area, or consume the spirit’s energy to attack enemies far away. Dark Knight is even faster on her feet after awakening, allowing her to decimate enemies in seconds.

Upon Succession, Dark Knight faces her opposition once more with Kriegsmesser and Ornamental Knot. She will assault anyone who opposes her self-proclaimed justice with powerful attacks. Somewhat coarse, and a little rough, but she elusively wields Kriegsmesser as she penetrates the heart of the battlefield to take down enemies and turn the tide.

The Guardian charges headlong into battle taking advantage of her tough fortitude and hacks away at her enemies without mercy. She never gives ground, no matter the circumstance. Instead, she grabs the enemy’s throat and slams down on them with her shield and finishes them with her battle axe. Despite such fervor for battle, she can hold steady with her shield and wait patiently for the perfect chance, then strike like a nimble beast. Her greatest attribute lies in her might and the impact she delivers with every blow.

Kunoichi uses Shortsword as her main weapon and can choose between Kunai or Shuriken for sub-weapons. She is an assassin class that strikes fear into her enemies, although she is not one to lie in wait for a perfect one-shot kill. She’ll make full use of her Kunai to keep enemies at bay and block attacks, and can go into stealth to look for an opening. At the right moment she can close in and deal an immense amount of damage. It can be difficult finding the right time to go in with Kunoichi, but once she begins her assault she does not stop till her target drops.

Awakened Kunoichi wields the crescent moon shaped weapon, Sak Chakram. She can use it to slash, strike, and throw, among various other techniques, yet her self-buff effects may not last as long as other classes. While her Sak Chakram needs to be wielded with both hands, she can efficiently eviscerate her enemies regardless. With a wide range of abilities, anyone able to master how she closes in on the enemy can potentially deal more damage than any other class.

Succession Kunoichi wields the Shortsword, Shuriken, or Kunai once more to topple her foes. Having tamed her rage for the tragic fate of her family deep within her heart, the Kunoichi has removed all emotion from her blade. With even bolder movements and sneaking skills, the Kunoichi specializes in ambushing her opponents with critical strikes. If she can remain cool-headed in the chaotic battlefield, her nimble movements alone make her a huge threat to her foes.

This ability is unique to Lahn; her capabilities seem truly boundless. She can switch between Crescent Pendulum to hit large areas and Noble Sword to weave through enemies and create openings to slice them, clearing large packs in mere moments.

Crimson Glaives are two swords connected with a chain. Lahn uses the glaives with her signature movements to bring utter destruction upon her foes. While the blades aren’t that long, she can throw one end and gain a bit of reach thanks to the chain. She is great for eliminating enemies within a large area.

Mystic is an agile martial artist who wears Gauntlets and a Vambrace to protect her arms. She prefers pummeling her enemies with a barrage of strikes as opposed to a single, powerful blow. She takes physical hand-to-hand combat to an extreme and destroys her foes with quick gap-closing movement, grabs, knock ups, and other skills that debuff or cripple enemies and gain the upper hand.

Awakened Mystic wears Cestus that, similar to the gauntlet, protects her fists, but also allows the use of even more powerful martial arts.

Using her large arsenal of debuffs, she can easily gain the advantage in any number of situations. She can also summon the Sea Dragon by consuming Martial Spirit Shards, obtained through combat.

Succession Mystic dons her Gauntlet and Vambrace once more to let out her Martial Spirit through her fists. Rather than relying on the Sea Dragon, the Mystic has honed herself in the way of the coldly calculated fist. Her rapid combos force her enemies to defend, denying any chance to counter as she deals a final blow. The best defense is a good offense, and the Mystic rains down fierce attacks upon her foes, inflicting much greater damage than she will receive.

She focuses the powers of fire, ice, wind, lightning, earth, and other elements on her staff to burn, freeze, and annihilate her enemies. No one can match her ability to rain down devastation in an instant. She is also able to use skills to jump through space, recover her ally’s health and resources, or increase their defenses. Her versatility in battle makes her an vital asset to have on your side.

Awakened Witch is bestowed the powers of lightning and earth by Tett and Gorr, who are the elemental guardians of forces that the Witch wields in battle. Her newfound brilliance in combat allows her to morph the earth itself by planting enemies into the ground,then deliver the final blow with lighting. She also boasts a more defensive skillset than the Wizard.

Succession Witch wields her Staff once more to utilize the pure forces of the elements. Having perfected her magic with her endless curiosity, the Witch can freely utilize multiple types of elements. The Witch can consecutively cast magic of different types while mixing in powerful attacks in between, thereby greatly confusing her enemies. Able to freely alternate between a variety of magic types along with support magic for her allies, she takes on a pivotal role on the battlefield.
