Arena of Arsha Best-In-Class Championship

 

Have you ever wondered who are the strongest Adventurers playing your class? Maybe you even want to learn how they approach a fight, perform combos, and defeat their foes?

 

Well that's why we are thrilled to present the NA/EU Arena of Arsha Best-In-Class Championship for you to find out!

 

Which 21 Adventurers will defeat all other challengers and become the champions of their class? If you wish to be named the Best-in-Class, then step up to the challenge!

 

 

Information on Arena of Arsha Best-In-Class Championship and Adventurer Round Table (ART).

 

We are holding two Arena of Arsha Best-In-Class Championships. The first will involve your own character and gear, and the second will be with a trial character. Adventurers who have won a match at any stage of the main tournament will have a chance to enter the Trial character-only tournament. Details regarding the Trial character-only Arena of Arsha tournament will be released at a later date.

 

Also, as previously announced on our [GM Notes] Black Desert: What’s Changing? Part 3: Communication, we would like to hold the ART (Adventurer Round Table) with the champions of the Arena of Arsha tournament to discuss and test class balance in Black Desert.

 

We are aiming to hold the ART after the main and Trial character-only tournaments have been completed. Current issues regarding each class and suggestions on improving them will be discussed and carefully listened to.

 

If you truly cherish your class and have genuine opinions and ideas to share, then this is your time!
