Guardian Class is coming to Black Desert Online next month

The Guardian is a mountain female warrior who follows the will of the ancient dragon Omua. This hardened warrior must wade through the turmoil of her fragmented memories and willingly ally with the Black Spirit in search of Ynix, the sacred flame that could kill even the gods…

The Guardian wields a battleaxe and shield and uses heavy melee attacks to subdue her enemies. She charges at enemies and grabs them by the neck to strike them with her shield as her ax hacks mercilessly at her foes. She is the bastion of the battlefield, striking with perfectly calculated blows to fend off all who dare oppose her. The Guardian uses a variety of skills to control the ebb and flow of the battlefield with broad and powerful blows from her ax and shield. Some of her most notable skills are:

: The Guardian smashes down her battleaxe three times with powerful, rock splitting force dealing massive damage.

: The Guardian smashes the ground, causing tremors that deal damage to foes around her.

: The Guardian draws the forces of the earth into her ax to create a circle around her, enemies can enter this circle at their own peril…

: The Guardian charges energy and sweep the foes in front of her of their feet with her battleaxe.

: The Guardian releases the charged energy from with a powerful blast that deals a high amount of damage.

This week also saw a few more classes receive their succession skills. The agile Musa and the graceful Maehwa receive these new abilities after the Warrior, Ranger, Tamer and Valkyrie who have already received their new abilities. By giving up the versatility of their Awakening skills, players can choose to specialize in Succession skills that give them powerful versions of the main weapons they start the game with. Players can unlock their succession skills at level 56 by accepting a quest from their Black Spirit companion.
