About the new Archer class 
The Archer, previously coined as the male ranger was a much requested class by the Black Desert Online community worldwide. As guardian of the Netherworld the Archer uses his Crossbow for his stylish ranged attack and skill combos.

The Archer also uses various different magic skills that assist him in combat by upsetting the opponents’ balance, and wreaking havoc upon whoever stands in his way by bombarding arrows with his Crossbow from afar.

The Archer is never flustered nor disoriented, even when surrounded by countless enemies as he can escape from them without breaking a sweat.

About Drieghan
Drieghan, also known as the land of dragons and the ancestral home of dwarves is a huge new mountainous area in Black Desert Online offering new story content, quests and challenges. Adventurers will be able to travel to Duvencrune, the capital of Drieghan which shows a variety of environments of an alpine region. New monster areas such as ‘Sherekhan's Grave, ‘Blood Wolf Town’, ‘Tshira Ruins’ will be released as well as the new dragon world boss, Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon. Players can also look forward to the Dragon Slayer, a brand new powerful craftable weapon which nearly matches the “Dandelion” weapon. This brand new update slated for a November 14 release will feature a large mountainous area, over 300 challenging quests, fresh nodes to conquer and a new menacing dragon boss called Garmoth.
