I googled to my hearts content and I can't seem to find out how this awakening weapon system works. Can somebody explain it to me? Like is it a special weapon you obtain that appears when you use certain skills(and unlocks special skills)? Is it something you have to build up some kind of 'energy' to be able to use it for a short period of time? How does it work D:

A lance is literally a weapon designed for use from horseback... and there's no mounted combat with it? lol

A spear would have been better, but oh well, it won't ruin the character for me.

Lances work just fine however when by foot (yay Monster Hunter games).

Also, this world has magic while ours does not.  Thus it's best to keep the values from our world from clouding your judgment.

I wonder if this is gonna help with her weakpoint of not having much damage? If she still has the shield she's still gonna be defensive I would think, which is weird because it seemed the pattern was to give all the classes a new weapon to compensate for their weakpoints. Like tamer not being reliant on her pet, warrior getting more damage, zerk getting a ranged weapon, sorc getting a longer weapon for bigger attacks, and archer getting melee.

Veeeery peculiar. Maybe despite having a bigger weapon she'll be more mobile?

I still don't understand the whole weakpoints thing, like, if i pick a Bard/Archer/Ranger i go into it expecting to be weak at melee but i pick the class anyways because i want to play a class that is focused on range. Just like if i pick a Paladin/Valkyrie/Knight i go into it expecting to do less damage but overall better defenses and survival. So what do they do? They give the Ranger daggers because people who picked Ranger totally want to be doing melee (sarcasm), and then they give the Warrior a greatsword because who in their right mind would play a sword/shield class and actually want to use the sword/shield (more sarcasm).

So if im understanding it right, the awakening weapons not only compensate for a weakpoint but they also force you to play in a way you originally never intended to.

It is a quest of lvl 56 from the black spirit you have to complete in order to be able to use the awakening, something like that atleast :P Afterwards, you can use it forever and you can also use your previous weapon set.

I believe more of the point is to add a new playstyle to the game without having to make a whole new class, which would come with all of the other things you have to add (namely character design, armor design, costume design etc).

You have to remember that the idea behind BDOs character choices is to let you do whatever you want and not have to make alts, which is why there's no healer or tank class. Weapon awakening flows very well with that ideology, giving classes unique options when you want to play differently.

That's not to say I believe all of the awakened weapons are perfect, I actually do feel like giving the melee guy a ranged weapon and the ranged guy a melee weapon isn't overly thoughtful, I prefer the ideology behind giving the defensive class a more damaging weapon and giving the short-range melee a longer ranged melee weapon, as a more subtle but effective way to fix their weakpoints. Maybe archer would have a shorter ranged weapon with more cc and escape options?

And by no means you're FORCED to use the weapon, it's just another option given to you.

I was following everything you said until you said this ^q^

don't the awakening weapons greatly outweigh the default?

Rule of Cool > Logic

Yeah, a spear or a pike would make way more sense but shanking someone with a giant lance looks cool. It doesn't matter that it's a weapon meant to be used off momentum and actually thrusting or swinging it repeatedly would be hard/unwieldly as -----.

All that matters is that it's cool

Can finally feel the raw power of playing a greatsword.

Always wanted to play a greatsword in Monster hunter but the longsword was too good.

 

Now ill have the opportunity to play greatsword :D

isnt valk supposed to be sword and shield not lance???

http://black-desert.com/classes/valkyrie/

She does, but the "Awakening weapon" is a second optional set that she gets that she can switch to.

Every class gets an awakened weapon..... It's in addition to their normal weapon once they hit level 56

I might not be surprised for the choice of lance, but that doesn't make me any less excited for it.

Really, what else could it have been besides a lance? She's a Valkyrie, all the Valkyria RPG's feature a magic lance wielding badass chick... Anime Valkyries have lances... It's a no brainer. Total fan service to classic game and anime tropes

I honestly don't understand what these nerds are whining about either...

As long as it wasn't a hammer, we gucci.
