Pearl Abyss has released a teaser trailer for the awakening of the Sage from Black Desert, who puts on Greek-style armor and picks up a spear. The Awakening release is expected on April 21 on PC and, presumably, a week after that on consoles.
In Awakening, the Sage retains massive AOE skills, while he can shorten distances with large jumps, like Lan. The sage uses the spear Cybelius, while not hitting them close up, but causes remote attacks. The main skill of Awakening — “Messenger of Heavenly Punishment” – it can be used in three ways:
- If you stand on the ground, the skill throws the character to a far distance and makes an attack.
- If you use the skill while in the air, the character will move behind the opponent’s back and attack from behind.
- If you use the skill in the air, but after throwing the command again, the Sage will throw the spear behind the target’s back and land in another place.
