Today Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games announced that the brand new “Lahn” class will be added to Black Desert Online on May 23. Lahn’s unique capabilities, moveset and fighting style will enable players to experience Black Desert Online in a whole new way. With the addition of Lahn, players can now choose between 16 diverse classes, each of which has the unique real-time action combat abilities for which Black Desert Online is famed for.
Lahn is a master of martial arts who trained in a dynasty of the far east. Her story begins by becoming a priestess but falls to an evil scheme, in which she tragically loses her lover in the battlefield. Grieved by her loss, she realizes that strength is the only way to achieve her ideals. Determined to return to her home one day and protect the ones she love, she embarks on a journey in search of greater power.
The upcoming female class uses a new weapon type that is exclusive to her, a stretchable main-hand weapon called the Crescent Pendulum. This is a crescent-moon shaped blade on the end of a long piece of cloth. She throws and swings her weapon with immaculate grace and completes her deadly arsenal with the Noble Sword, a short blade that is her off-hand weapon. Lahn is a very speedy and agile class that utilizes dance-like combat moves. Her Nimbus Stride skill lets her gracefully glide through the air, displaying both elegance and power.
