Blade & Soul Articles
Not long ago, Blade & Soul developers teased a new class coming to the Korean version of the game. Set to launch in June, nothing else has been said until the arrival of a new teaser image on the Korean site. The image shows off a pair of female archers, though devs provided no further details including whether or not there will be a male version. With the month of May waning and the imminent release nearing, it's apparent that more info should be coming soon.
From May 15th to June 19th, Blade & Soul players will be able to take part in the Scarlet Tears event in celebration of the upcoming Scarlet Conservatory raid. Players will take part in a number of phases during the event, each of which sees them rewarded with Polished Scale Fragments that are used to purchase items in the Dragon Express. Items include the 2018 Cosmetic Design Contest costume and the Reborn & Cryo Phoenix Weapon Illusion.
On April 24, the Blade & Soul servers will be reduced from five to two. Yura will be the NA server, while Jinsoyun will be the EU server after that date. The buying and selling of gold via the Currency Exchange will be disabled a few days prior to the merger, so players should get their exchanges done before that date or wait until after the 24th.
When Legends Reborn launches into Blade & Soul on April 10th, it will come with a number of significant changes to a variety of systems throughout the game. Dungeons and Raids,in particular, will be altered throughout the game. Several will have difficulty lowered, while others will receive buff increases. Other features going under the knife for changes include in-game events, items including costumes, bracelets, reward selection chests and more.
From March 13th to April 10th, Blade & Soul players will be able to take part in a number of events in celebration of Legacy of the Hongmoon Clan. Players can take part in hourly battles that will pit 20-combatants against one another in a "battle royale-styled PvP event" that will be a fight to be the last one standing. The fight will feature boosts that can be found for the duration of the battle, as well as monsters that will be on the prowl for unwary fighters.
Blade & Soul will be getting a big update on March 13th when the Legacy of the Hongmoon Clan content expansion arrives. Players can register on the official site to receive a free Hongmoon Ascension Pack which, among other things, includes a level 60 Boost Voucher. The dev team will be revealing more about Legacy of the Hongmoon Clan, but we do know that it will include the level cap increase to 60, new class specializations, a new storyline, a new island full of rare beasts and the Lyn Warden.
Starting February 6th, Blade & Soul players will be able to take part in the Prince of Darkness update that comes complete with a new 6-player Heroic Dungeon called the Brood Chamber. Players will also be able to play through "Blade & Soulmate", the annual event where "love is in the air".
The Blade & Soul team is uncorking the champagne for the game's third anniversary. In one of the more unusual ways to celebrate, players and fans can find a number of opportunities to be entered into a contest to score some custom Blade & "SOLE" Nike. There are a half dozen ways to get your name in for the drawing.
During a South Korean media event with the Blade & Soul team, it came to light that a new class is in the works. According to MMOCulture, the class will be a ranged damage dealer that will provide a challenging level of gameplay for longtime players. Those choosing the class will have additional manual control elements to use and will need to utilize angles and distance to maximize damage. There is no release window for the Korean version, let alone the NA version.
The Blade & Soul team took to the airwaves earlier this week to preview the next update. Theater of Mystery will be launching into the game on December 5th and devs showed off the Earthen Realm dungeon and reminded players they will be tasked with "unmasking the deadly secrets of the Dreamsong Theater" and much more.
A new letter has been posted on the Blade & Soul site to let North American and European players know that the class specializations update that was planned for December 2018 is going to be delayed to address player feedback and to allow developers an opportunity for an additional balance pass to make any needed adjustments.
It's a spooky time in Blade & Soul with the imminent arrival of the Blade & Ghoul event. To celebrate the arrival of the annual Halloween event, a new trailer and details have been released.
The Blade & Soul site has been updated with a peek at this year's Blade & Ghoul event. The holiday-themed content is scheduled to begin on October 17th and run through November 7th. During the event, players of level 50+ will head off to the Zaiwei Ruins to "defeat the hideous monsters and nightmares that haunt it".
Do you like wielding giant swords? If yes, you should know Blade and Soul released a new class last week called the Warden. The Warden uses a giant sword to protect its allies as they take down enemies around them. Over the weekend I've enjoyed making a Warden and attempting to level it to the max. I did not make it to max level yet but I can tell you about my time and the fun I've been having. This is our first impression of the Warden in Blade and Soul.
Blade & Soul players can now head into the game and dig into the new content that arrived with the Warden's Fury update. This includes "a new character class, Act 9 of the epic quest line, a new 6-player heroic dungeon and much more".
