Black Desert’s newly added Corsair will receive an Awakening tomorrow, August 11. Here’s what you can expect.

If you missed it, the Corsair released on Black Desert back in June. The Corsair takes heavy inspiration from pirates from popular folklore and employs a cutlass and magical orb of sorts to take down her enemies. If you missed our coverage, we’ve got you covered.

Corsair’s Awakening combat style was outlined ahead of its release including Patraca which is a weapon, “imbued with the dense mist of the Crow’s Nest.” With Patraca, Corsair can rush her foes surrounded by that dense mist. For enemies farther down range, you’ll be able to harpoon them and drag them into the mist.

Corsair’s Awakening skills include Spare No Quarter, Sun-splitter Patraca, Ocean’s Allure, and Cap’n’s Orders: Open Fire! You can learn more about Corsair’s Awakening here, and take a look at her combat styles below.

In other Black Desert developments, the first co-op dungeon, Atoraxxion, launched last month. Additionally, Pearl Abyss, the team behind Black Desert, announced they were building a new art center meant to house, among other things, a new motion capture studio.

Back in July, Pearl Abyss noted they crossed another milestone as they reported a 300% increase in new players. You can read more about the details of that report here.
