*closed* Closed Beta 2: Feb. 18th to Feb. 22nd 

 

Beta Info

Website: https://www.blackdes...om/news/view/55

 

If you pre-ordered, there's nothing more you need to do! You can download the application beginning on Feb. 16th. For folks who got into the beta by registering, it sounds like you have to register your key on the website above. 

 

Who's Playing?

So far, here's the running list of folks playing:

  • Getta
  • Cata
  • Attris
  • Genius
  • Exuun
  • Blood
  • Asylum guys
  • Nuke + RL butt buddy

 

WTH is Black Desert? It looks gay. 

Its a new MMO. It was originally released in Korea and has been ported over to US and Europe. 

 

The game is buy to play. Meaning no sub! But, you have to buy the game. The game can be purchased [ here ]

is my opinion on pros / cons (as observed in the very short time I had to play beta)

 

Pros

  • Combat is not point and click. It requires you to do a sequence of keys to do combos (example: post here shows skill calculator / key combos [ here ] 
  • Some combos can be loaded to a hot bar, but not all
  • It looks like you can have two hot bars, but I didn't get this too far into it, so don't hold my feet to the fire if its not there
  • Game appears to be "G Key" friendly (or whatever you use to hot key certain things)
  • A lot of the quests seem to be kill based - so go to X area and kill X monsters
  • All the little things - you learn more about monsters (by killing them) and therefore kill them better
  • No level cap - though EXP is set to slow down significantly at 50-55
  • Cash shop is not pay to win - its convenience or cosmetic item
  • There is a feature that auto runs you to your next quest / waypoint
  • Very rich trading / crafting system
  • You can flag yourself for open world PvP (just watch the equivalent of Murder Points)
  • There are PvP Guild Wars, robbing caravans, battlegrounds, and sieges

Cons 

  • I feel the game is more centered around your keyboard. A Gamepad or MMO mouse may make a lot of this easier. If your a "clicker", you may get mad at the mechanics at first
    • i.e. Using Ctrl activates your cursor. Rebinding that to a mouse key was one of the first things I did lol
  • While the auto run feature is great, I think you do have to run everywhere (but you can get /  train a mount)
  • While the trading / crafting system appears to be very rich, its a bit confusing
  • PvP starts at level 50 (big bummer)
  • Guild invites have to be done in person

 

Unknown

  • I don't know what the end game content or raid situation look like. From what I can tell on the Internet, there isn't going to be much at launch - but it sounds like they intend on creating some. There are a couple dungeons - but they don't sound very large

I played the first beta of this and the combat was REALLY nice, aiming and fast paced.. like aoc but faster, but different too because instead of combos you do certain mouse clicks and buttons on the keyboard.  There's also 1-10 you can do instead of the combos but they don't chain properly or something.  I'm kinda a noob.

 

I didn't notice the char creation thing I was in a rush so I just auto made a character.  I'll try to make something extra special for the next beta!

Well, I pre-ordered. TBH, I am a sucker for player housing. There is no sub fee, which is awesome. Just buy the game once.

 

I really hope this doesn't turn into some Korean cash shop shit fest.

Some information about the classes...

 

The Korean version currently has more classes, but it looks like we will be launching with:

  • Warrior (male)
  • Ranger (female)
  • Berserker (male)
  • Sorceress (female)
  • Valkyrie (female)
  • Wizard / Witch (male / female)
  • Tamer (female)

The classes are gender locked - but there seem to be similar equivalents - for the most part.  A description of the classes can be found [ here ]. This is the Korean site, so you'll be able to see classes we wont necessarily be getting yet. From some of the posts I've read, it says the Korean version releases new classes every 2 months or so. I imagine we would get some of these other classes soon :) 

 

There's a build calculator [ here ]that shows a preview of the combat ability and the button presses. I haven't really messed around with this too much - but thought it was a good site to see how the combat may work.

 

Closed Beta 2 starts on Feb 18th (OFC WHILE I AM MOVING) and ends on Feb 22nd. You can automatically get into the Closed Beta by pre-ordering either the Explorer's or Conqueror's packages (does not come with base package). Or, you can try to sign up [ here ]

 

I will probably be able to play a little bit, but I hope someone has some time to check it out :)

I'll get it; I just don't know how my schedule is going to work with gaming for now. This was the only mmo that made my pants wiggle 2 years ago, so I have to at least give it a shot.
