Prediction - Dark Knight will be the largest played class.

39 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

looking at the play style and the fact the Dark Knight is female I predict so many people will reroll this class when it comes out.

The play style is a cross between Musa / Sorc / Maewha with a few additions. So if the class is anything but under powered or borked, then everyone will be playing one on release.

It will also depend how much people have invested in their current characters and feel tied in. But make way for a flood of gear onto the market place.

This is what I'm thinking.

Anyone else have some thoughts?

I was thinking the same, but many people are saying, that she is very slow and boring so i think at the beginning everyone will test this class, some will take it as an alt and a few would main her.

I think a lot of people will wait to see what her awakening is first. She does look fun though.

idk, I am playing her in KR version. I'm liking her style so far. and from what I read on the BDO inven website about her, she generally has a positive review among the people~ the only problem is obviously the glaring difference between all the other characters having awakening weapons and she does not.

solid mobility, great damage, low levels is a breeze cause she has some useful mp regen skills and hp steal skills...not sure about grinding after Mediah...I personally gotta get to that level first haha.

I think she is a nice switch from the usual high speed classes. Seems she is focused more on in your face combat than running circles around your opponents l, or teleporting all over the area waiting for an opening. Keep in mind she is also a Knight, so her purpose is to engage, counter, and absorb hits. From what I've seen of the KR streamers who gave her proper gear, she is a challenge for most classes and can take some serious punishment. I suspect we will see either a whip (which has become a popular prediction in the KR community) or sickle and chain like the Tera Reaper to increase her mobility, add a grab/more CC, a bit more AOE damage, and a lot more ranged attacks like he ranger awakening or some aspects of the junk awakening.

No way will a class without an awakening become the most played.  People will try it out and then after they get their fill of trying the new shiny thing go back to their pvp relevant classes.

she's like a pre-awakening Sorc. No grab skills, pure CC, and one of her bread+butter skill gets bonus damage from smash attacks (knockdown damage)

also, most of her skills are apparently designed around pvp~ so...if and when she does come over to NA, pvp-happy people are gonna have a field day with her.

Why? it looks too slow, and it is kind of late to re-roll a new char as main, i mean, ain't nobody got time for that.

I've taken a break from BDO, mainly due to RNG rage, but I still think the game is really fun. I may return to play the new character, I always loved 2h sword classes. I mained a DK in WoW and played a DRK in FFXIV, so the theme is definitely there.

It is, if the RNG wants it to be.

Its a dark knight, how does rng have anything to do with that?

Yeah even if this class isn't "meta" w/e lmao who cares. Makes it more of a challenge anyways to win with a off meta class. Skill rules out any game I played endgame wise.

"spawn_tri_kzarka_1"

 

If not sorry RNG and grinding have to do with DK

Yeah, I have thoughts, mine are people that's sick and tired of gender locked classes won't be making one of these Dark Knight characters because (1) it cost too damn much to be buying artisans to do new sets of gear and weapons, (2) it's a gender locked and won't be touched by those of us sick of this shit. (3) No sign of awakenings and that's just fail in itself.

Watch PA gives the Dark knight a Kusarigama for awakening weapon, just so they can farm the ninja/kuno tears to feed the server hamsters.

No idea what your on about. its a dark knight. a dark knight is a dark knight lmao. rng = random number generator. Numbers have nothing to do with a class being a class, a class is simply what it is.  back to dark souls :)
