24 classes in Black Desert offer variety

What kind of game is this? Black Desert is an action MMORPG from 2016 that stands out from the crowd of MMORPGs because of its graphics, its dynamic combat system and its good development over the years. For us on MeinMMO, it is one of the “big five in the MMORPG sector” alongside WoW, Final Fantasy XIV, ESO and Lost Ark.

One of the strengths of the game is the variety and alternation of the classes: over the years, the number of playable classes has gradually grown to 24.

While a player was limited to typical classes for MMORPGs at launch, there are now also unusual classes such as the Corsair (a kind of pirate), the Drakania (magical dragon warrior) or the Shai (a bard) that you don’t see in every MMORPG sees.

Is this still played at all? Black Desert numbers have been consistently over 10,000 for years. And that’s just the Steam client, the MMORPG also has its own launcher and versions for Xbox and PlayStation.

They’ve gone down a bit on Steam over the last few months, which is probably why the sale is there. One can assume that Black Desert will remain popular for quite a while.

The studio is planning a sequel, Crimson Desert, but it still seems a long way off.

Players invest thousands of hours into the MMORPG

What do the Steam Reviews say about Black Desert? With 74% positive reviews, Black Desert is rated “mostly positive”.

It’s interesting that many people who gave a review spent an extremely large amount of time with the MMORPG:

  • A user who has played more than 4200 hours in Black Desert on Steam judges: The first hours up to level 60 just fly by, the graphics are phenomenal, the combat system is the most exciting he has ever seen in an MMORPG. But the game was also incredibly grindy and it was frustrating that others could spend money to shorten the grind.
  • A user with 1300 hours says: She keeps coming back to Black Desert because other MMORPGs can’t give her the same feeling. It’s a unique game.
  • Another user with over 4500 hours quotes Thanos: “It costs everything.”

Who do you recommend the MMORPG to? Black Desert is an excellent MMORPG for anyone looking for action and variety. The first few hours can be recommended to every MMORPG fan – you should definitely have played Black Desert.

However, Black Desert’s endgame should be viewed with caution: this is where you can really get lost and frustrated. As usual for games from Asia, the endgame is very grindy and frustrating – in relation to “western MMORPGs”.
