Blade & Soul next content update Unchained adds new Warlock class

blade and soul 5

Less than a month after getting the first content update Rising Waters, Blade and Soul is already about to receive a new content update called Unchained. The highlight of this update is without a doubt the new class Warlock, exclusive to the Jin and Lyn, but it also brings floor 8, the final floor of the first section of Mushin’s Tower. The the Naryu Labyrinth will also be unlocked – all this on March 2.

The Warlock class week will begin February 22, when more info on this class is going to be revealed, but here is the official description:

“Using mid-range abilities, the Warlock snares their enemies, executes fast and furious combos, and can then summon a massive, demonic Thrall to finish them off. The mixture of dark shadowy magic and explosively vibrant techniques, the Warlock has substance, in addition to being able to dish out serious damage.”

NCsoft is going to be kind enough to give everyone a free additional character slot unlock to keep the new Warlock class.

The Naryu Labyrinth (a Heroic dungeon available in both 6- and 4-player versions) offers a dynamic 3-stage encounter for max level players and after each encounter, one of the doors opens randomly, so that every time you enter the labyrinth you’ll face a new experience. As for floor 8 of the Mushin’s Tower, you’ll get to face an ethereal manifestation of Mushin himself in this Heroic single player encounter.

Blade & Soul recently surpassed the two million registered players in North America and Europe. Looks like it’s not doing too bad at all.

    i like the fact that this update comes 1 day before launch of black desert online.
    would be fun to see how many players all mmos will bleed to go to black desert.
    and no i am not working for them nor will i get the game from day one. will wait a bit to see how it runs etc.

      I think the same…
      The update of february 10 also… announce right after the date of BDO cbt2 was released…
      It’s clear they fear someway BDO, so they are probably trying to speedy the updates a littlw to keep players interested…
      They won’t last a lot otherwise…

      I played both, and prefer BDO for obvious reasons 😀

        bdo is amazing. and it should serve them right. if they had released bns like 3 years ago then they wouldnt have that problem. take a look at how little time in comparison took bdo to release to west.

    I wanted to say that Blade and Soul disappointed me extremely. I’ve always had issues since release with crashing. Whenever I’m on a loading screen I crash 95% of the time. And second I barely run the game at 10 fps. but on Black Desert I can run it really good (20+ FPS) on my little toaster laptop. I’m also disappointed cause it’s turning into TERA, the costumes are all being released in lockboxes, I really liked a costume and spent 40$ on lockboxes, didn’t get the costume. Biggest disappointment of my gaming life.

      no technical problems here with either (bns and bdo cbt2). fps are smooth on both. bns = around 120 in instanced mini maps and around 90 outside. bdo has a cap at 60 (same as monitor refresh) and i didnt bother to see how to remove it (no in game option afaik). seen bdo drop to 25 when it was full of people at starting area dummies (lots of ppl + lots of attack effects and animations).

    I really do hope blade and soul won’t continue down the lockbox path and just make costumes random drops or hell. Make em free. Costumes are meant to be used for fun. If I gotta spend 100 dollars just to buy a costume I’d of gotten a real costume to wear. I was really hoping they wouldn’t follow on the pay wall thing..

      It would be awesome, the premium dresses in bns are really good, but they won’t put them free.
      It their only money source, and servers are expensive, so that’s why :/

        Maybe they can make free costumes to compliment that too? I dunno. But that’s what neverwinter did and I lost my interest in it

      And how do you expect them to earn any money? There are a lot of cool costumes for free already.

        One way would to be creating two pools of items. One is behind a pay wall that looks more exotic and the other. While the free ones would be more common. But grinding dungeons or the tower would reveal better looking ones for the f2pers. But still they have have a lot behind a paywall. Just have some stuff people can grind for free

          But there are already a lot of free good stuff you can grind. The only bullshit is the cash box with a low chance of getting a costume, besides that if you think a costume is cool just pay for it.

            That’s the thing. I play the f2p mmos because I can’t afford the p2p ones

            Yeah, but NCSoft has to earn their money some way, selling costumes is a valid and fair way. The game may be free but if the devs don’t get some money how do you expect them to keep the game live? As I already said twice, there is plenty of cool costumes for free in the game, there is no reason to complain about paid costumes. Did you prefer cash itens with gameplay impact so it would become P2W? Gezz, some F2Playes are greedy, it’s cool to play the game for free right? But if the game is really good you should at least give the guys some money ffs. It’s ok if you don’t have any money but don’t complain about stupid thing like that either.
