Dark Knight Awakening!

31 posts in this topic

Posted

So word on the street is that Dark Knight may get a Bladed Whip. Much like Ivy from Soul Calibur.

 

To justify this (because it sounds so amazing!), I did some digging. Turns out their classes are based on their previous game called C9. The Dark Knight is like the Witchblade and they did in fact use a bladed whip!

 

This sounds amazing to me, and I hope its like this. I'm already in love with the Dark Knight and cant wait to play it, but now I possibly have even more to be stoked about!

 

What else do you guys think would be a fun or viable option for her awakening? Let me know with a reply!

Only 1 of the Witchblade classes uses a chainblade, and that is a 2 handed sword type weapon iirc - not a whip. The other 3 classes dual wield swords. I wouldnt have thought they would give her a 2nd 2h sword weapon as awakening.

The ideal would have been a scythe tbh but thats done. It would be nice to see her with bhegs weapon.

She could also possibly get a 2 handed hammer if they keep with the C9 imitations.

Edit: and a random memory - in a game called Shaiya the assassin class duel wielded long claws - that could be interesting.

 

You are certainly right in that there are some huge similarities between C9 classes and BDO awakenings though.

Kuno - Erta

Sorc = Reaperess

warrior = berserker

The Nightstalker (bladed whip-sword user in C9) is a pet-focused class though, it doesn't actually make much use of its chainblade. Demonisher would be a better choice in terms of gameplay tbh, although that might be better as a full class rather than just an awakening for DK.

Sword/Axe/Mace + Light crossbow, Katars/Claws, Throwing axes/daggers, a blunt/cleaving weapon...

While I don't really dislike the whip option it would be my least prefered weapon.

But if they manage to bring a mid/long range awakening weapon I'm happy with what kind of weapon dark knight gets. Seriously we need a ranged awakening weapon to change this "all melee awakenings" ;(

Lol seriously the awakening of most classes destroyed it for me in BDO. Main Reason i play Witch is because any other class i played before changed 180° with their awakening weapons. Tamer, Ranger, Maehwa and Kunoichi. 

I probably would never touch the game again if she really gets a stupid whip. I dont want to play a Dominatrix. I could live with a longsword/gun , longsword/crossbow or maybe even with the chainsword of C9 as awakening. I really hope i dont get let down on this class.

If they wanted to give her a whip they should have done that first and than gave her the longsword as awakening.

For me the main problem with awakenings isn't that it's a 180º change. The problem is that there is a concept problem because at first the awakening weapon was to cover some class weakness but now it's a direct evolution and you end using that weapon almost always because awakening>preawakening so you are FORCED to use a weapon that you would like it or not.

With a proper class/weapon balancing that wouldn't be a problem.

Its all hearsay and guesswork at the moment.

They have drawn quite heavily on C9 classes with other awakenings though so may well do that again. There isn't actually much similarity between Witchblade and DK though. It is my opinion that the awakening will more likely be melee though unless it taps into the black magic theme more and they go for a magic awakening.

Can't see the Dark Knight getting a blade n whip combo.. seems better suited for something like D3 crusader.

Flail + Shield..

Since the badass two hander is covered, and something I would like to continue using post awakening. I would hope for something along the lines of a wand, and use it to summon a minion to fight along side you.

Chain sword, or bheg weapon seems good. But crusader from d3 could do aswell. But You guys forgot that Dark knight is corrupted and covered in darkness even more than black spirit. What if awakening for DK is to suprass and use dark spirit with unlocking memory of the past before dark spirits. She might even fuse with one inside her or summon awakend black spirit as u guy mentoned - the minion. BHEG weapons plus dark wings as symbol of total corruption and black spirit awakend as a minion (summon skill or ultimate), with 200% rage demon dance sonething attack ... i think ill write a BDO comic... or Novel.
