The time has come to add another series to our YouTube channel. Being a big fan of RPG and MMORPG games, I went out to find a game in that category, and that is how I discovered Black Desert Online. Follow me in this brand new series where we start with the fantastic Character Creation tool!
If you have never heard about Black Desert Online, no worries … I did only hear about it when adding the news for the game to this website. But I went ahead and checked some videos, bought the game on saturday, played around a little bit and decided I might create a new series about the game for our YouTube Channel. And so it began …
Amazing Character Creation Tool
Of course … we start our adventures by creating a new character using the Character Creation tool. In the good old Dark Age of Camelot days, I used to play a Paladin and later on almost all the other classes, including a Valkyrie. The things I liked about the Valkyrie back then is that it was a support / tank class which had some buffs to support it’s party. Since Black Desert Online has a Valkyrie class, I decided to go with that for this series.
But first … the Character Creation … The very first time I went through the Character Creation process, I spent about 30 minutes in there. Not that the system is difficult to use, but this is one of the most impressive character creation and customisation I have ever seen in a game. You can change just about anything for your character. And with that, I don’t mean change the color and type of hair and skin color … No, this character creation tool allows you to change the color and shape of your hair, the length of the front part of your hair, the side, the back, the curls … Yes, sure you can change the color of your hair, but the black desert online character creation tool allows you to change the color of the eyes separately from one another. And if that is not enough, you can change the Iris, Pupil and much more, heck you can change the eyebrows, add make-up, … the list simply goes on and on.
Not happy with the size of your legs, change it! Want more muscles … add them! A tattoo … no problem! A belly … why not! Heck … you can even change the size of the breasts, stomach, shoulders, … this Character Creation tool has it all!!!
First Baby Steps
Well … the time has come to bring Hjorvik the Valkyrie into the game. Once in game, we meet our new little friend, the black spirit, who guides us through the first steps. He teaches us about movement, potions, the auto bathing system and much more. That bathing system is impressive too. Lost an NPC? No problem, find him on your map, right click and you can automatically run towards his location. Don’t wan’t the game to do all the running? No worries, simply follow the blue line on the floor!
Of course … this episode is just an introduction to the game. Hjorvik spent some time in and around the starting village of Olvia where she met some of the villagers. She learned her very first combat skill from the skill master and is sent out to kill some beetles, foxes and wolves. After a while Hjorvik got the grips of the combat system and was sent out to disturb the imps around the village of Olvia. But this is just a start …
Black Desert Online has a lot of depth and things to do
The game has a lot to offer, from fighting, questing, to trading, gathering, crafting, horse breeding and much more. One could easily get overwhelmed by the amount of things to do in the game. Luckily Hjorvik will be taking a more relaxed approach. No need for her to rush through the game, no … she will take her time to talk to everyone she meets, make new friends and go on even more adventure …
To be continued!
