Succession skills are coming to Black Desert Online and is set to revamp classes.
The update is set to rollout starting December 4 in which 16 classes will sequentially receive new Succession skills that will add a new dimension to gameplay of the classes of the game.
What are Succession skills? They’ll allow you to make the choice between choosing to specialize in their main weapons by sacrificing access to their Awakening skills. In return, they get powerful new skills focused on using their original weapons, which is the Longsword and Shield for the Warrior and the Bow and Dagger for the Ranger. Players can unlock their Succession skills at level 56 by completing a series of quests given to them by the Black Spirit.
Executive Producer Jaehee Kim explained further,
“Many adventurers experience a radical change in the gameplay of their character when they 'Awaken' it after reaching level 56. The efficiency and strength of Awakening skills overshadow existing skills, so many players utilize much less of their Main Weapon skills. We developed the Succession skills for those who prefers and missed their original playstyle of the Main Weapon over their Awakening Weapon.
The Succession update aims to return the appealing gameplay of the original Main Weapon skills of their characters to provide players with a lasting enjoyment.
We hope players enjoy their experience trying out the newly updated original skills that are familiar yet more powerful than before.”
