Black Desert Hashashin Class Now Available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One


Seoul, South Korea, July 22nd, 2020— Pearl Abyss is excited to announce that Hashashin, a brand new Black Desert class is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. After pre-creating their Hashashin in Black Desert’s famed Character Creator for the last two weeks, adventurers are finally able to take this elusive new class to the battlefield.

Hashashin is the latest character to be added to the popular MMORPG and will be able to manipulate sandstorms with the power of the native Valencian god Aal. For example, he has a skill that allows him to imbue the memory of a specific place in a sandstorm which allows him to instantly move to that place, given that he is not too far away. He can also create sandstorms to chase enemies or ambush them from above.

As a desert dweller, he can travel slightly faster in the desert and has a mildly higher resistance to desert diseases compared to other classes. He engages in melee combat with the Shamshir sword as his main weapon and his main skill, the Descent, is an AOE attack where Hashashin jumps into the air and slams his Shamshir into the ground, sending out a ripple of sandstorms.

To celebrate Hashashin’s arrival, adventurers can look forward to a series of events that will reward players with useful items worth $130 such as Cron Stones, Advice of Valks, Blessing of Kamasilve, and a Premium Weapon and Armor box by simply logging in to the game.

Adventurers who during the event period level-up their Hashashin to 60 will receive over 600 million in silver and other rewards such as Black Stones. To help players in achieving this challenge, a 24-hour Hot Time event will be applied which gives adventurers 100% additional Combat EXP and a 30% drop rate increase. Furthermore, adventurers can gain 100% additional Skill EXP and an extra 20% increase in droprate for interacting with one of many sandstorms that are randomly raging across the battlefield.
