Blade & Soul announces Empyrian Shadows with new class specializations and fishing

Blade Soul Empyrian Shadows class

Empyrian Shadows is the next Blade & Soul expansion and it promises great things. Such as, you ask? Two new class specializations, for example, and the greatest feature that every player was asking for: fishing.

Well, I can't really say if fishing was in high demand, but it's not a bad past-time to distract you from all the fighting and combo-ing.

But first things first. Act 10 of Blade & Soul's story is coming. The Gathering Dark takes you into the Empyrian Citadel, where you'll meet familiar faces ready to help you as you fight old foes. Mushin must be stopped, but it won't be an easy task.

And now for the two new class specializations. There's the Kung Fu Master 3rd Class Specialization, where you can use a huge iron gauntlet and transform into one of three ferocious wolves. Then we have the Blade Master 3rd Class Specialization, which is all about the deadly blades.

The last thing that I want to highlight is fishing. You can earn rewards by fishing in Blade & Soul and there's even a ranking system in case you want to see who caught the bigger ones. Now there's something to brag about, right?

This is shaping up to be a great expansion, but everyone is dying for the Blade & Soul Vision update, which will completely visually revamp this MMORPG thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 4.

The Empyrian Shadows update is out on June 19, 2019. You can read more about it here.
