A new feature somewhat similar to "try before you buy" has entered Black Desert Online. Players can have up to three Trial Characters on their account that offers a high-level experience in Battle Arena, Red Battlefield, Arena of Arsha and Savage Rift. These Trial Characters come with 4,000 Skill Points and a special Battle Arena NPC offers a variety of gear for a single silver each.
When you first enter Battle Arena with your Lv. 60 Trial Character, you can open up your Inventory (I) and check out the following free items:
Inventory +16 Expansion Coupon x3
Basic main weapon and sub-weapon (You can purchase Awakening Weapons from NPC Haz)
[Battlefield] Body Enhancement
“Awakening Secret” skill book (right-click to be able to use Awakening weapon)
In addition to Trial Characters, the update includes a number of bug fixes and tweaks to classes in the full game and in the Battle Arena.
You can read the full patch notes on the Black Desert Online forum.
