Black Desert Online is an up-and-coming MMO set to release in a week or so. I know this thread is kind of late, but I just wanted to see if anyone else was interested in this game.

It's a buy to play game similar to Guild Wars 2 meaning that once you buy it, that's it. There isn't even an optional subscription fee (meaning hopefully not another Archeage situation). You can check out more info on the game's official site or on the wiki.

If you're interested, there are several founder pack options available ranging from 30 dollars (the price of the game) to 100 dollars that all offer various bonus items / upgrades. To pre-purchase or to view the founder packages and their contents, check this link.

Note that we will likely NOT make a guild on this game*. With our current roster of officers / leaders, we are already spread thin enough with managing the site, Steam group, GW2 guild & WoW guild. Though if others are interested in playing this we should try what we can to get in the same guild together.


*This may change in the future, but as it currently stands we're too spread thin to manage yet another guild in a major MMO.

After watching a few videos, I feel like the title of the game should be "Potion Wars Online."

Combat style: spam all skills -> run out of mana -> use potion -> repeat.

I've been playing it all weekend so far aside from a bit of Heroes of the Storm. What class were you watching? I'll give it a try, but so far the classes I've seen aren't like that at all.

It was the one that throws elemental spells around. Video here. If you look carefully, the mana potion keeps going on cooldown as soon as it comes off it.

I play Tamer as of right now I am not a potion whore but that could change. Though crafting could yield potions to help negate this. I want to try all the classes.

Yeah that's someone AOE grinding / farming. That's not fun in any game. If you wanna give it a try after launch, let me know and I might have extra trial passes.

I guess I chose Orwen. I have no idea what guilds or groups are going to be on either server or if these are going to be the two servers available at launch, but that's where I am for the beta.

Pretty sure I'll pass on this one. I can't seem to find a class that would be able to heal as its primary focus (even valkyrie looks more like a prot pally than anything else). Which would mean one of two things.

1) They're going to replace healers with health potions.
2) They're going a similar route to Guild Wars 2 by not implementing the trinity and while that worked to a certain extent, healers and tanks were added for raiding.

Either way, it doesn't seem terribly appealing to me.

Fair enough. There are supportive roles in the game but since it's not dungeon / raid focused and it's more pvp / sandbox / open world focused, there may not be a dedicated healer class that JUST heals. Like I said if you want a guest pass, let me know.
