    Full of curiosity, Shai approaches the forbidden cave where she suffers a terrible nightmare from which she will never awake and loses all her memories. Nevertheless, she gets to face the Black Illusion once again.


    Can Shai overcome her fears and return to her cheerful, bright past self?

    Adventurers, accompany Shai throughout the grand journey that awaits her!


    [​IMG]

    “The girl who embraces the light of the world”


    If each and every person is virtuous, would virtue truly exist?

    If each and every person shines bright, could all bear the name of light?

    Light may only exist because there is darkness.


    A Shai girl born in the darkness, carrying the First Light within her,

    ceded to her curiosity and lost all her memories to the Black Illusion.

    She then left Florin to go on a long journey,

    but the wheel of fortune turned, and she got to face the Black Illusion again.

    “I am the shadow the light of your curiosity has borne.”


    The Black Illusion she met for the third time spoke only a few words,

    and tried to swallow not her memories, but everything she had this time.

    The moment the darkness was about to devour her light completely,

    a stream of light broke through the darkness and crossed over the infinite space.


    When he saw the girl who barely escaped to the town,

    Chief Valentine said something surprising.

    “So you saw the Black Illusion...”


    Ironically, the Black Illusion has never ceased to exist as long as the light existed.

    Valentine was also one of the lights of the Shai.

    Valentine taught the girl how to escape from the nightmarish illusion.

    Artina, the wandering musician...

    Valentine, who overcame the Black Illusion with Artina’s help,

    hoped for another miracle and sent the girl to the musician.

    “Who is trying to disturb me this time?”


    Shai’s first encounter with the cranky, bad-tempered teacher thus happened.

    Artina, charmed by how earnest and pure Shai was,

    decided to teach Shai true music,

    hoping that music would create the same miracle for her

    just like it did to Valentine decades ago.

    “I am neither a Wizard nor a Healer. I just love music.”


    Shai started to learn about music with Artina’s help

    and realized the beauty it holds.

    The heart of the once weak, helpless girl

    became harder and stronger, little by little.

    She then decided that she would play beautiful music

    not for herself, but for the whole world.


    Before Shai knew it, her eyes were no longer filled with fear of the Black Illusion

    but with confidence and a purpose that she would drive out all darkness from the world.

    “Play your music for the world. And do it properly, otherwise I will take your instruments back!”


    Leaving behind Artina’s nagging words of concern,

    Shai took another step forward, in search of the world’s darkness.

    Now her friends, lovers of beautiful melodies and music, stand behind her.

    “Because the shadow of the darkness can never win against the light’s melody”

    Shai discovers her Talent!

    [​IMG]


    We previously revealed to you an image of Shai with her instruments through the June 15th announcement.

    However, that was only the tip of the iceberg!

    ‘Tring’ in the form of a lute,
    ‘Tute’ in the form of a flute,
    ‘Tamtam’ in the form of djembe.


    Unlike other classes who are awakened into new sources of power,

    Shai will ‘discover Talents’ to learn the melody of light and start utilizing three types of musical instruments as her weapon!

    What will Shai show with her newly-discovered talents?


    Three Musical Instruments, Multiple Talents


    [​IMG]

    Celestial Light


    Greatly empowers Shai herself

    through a performance imbued with aurora’s light.

    By using this skill, Shai

    obtains an outstanding temporary buff effect.



    [​IMG]

    Song of Courage


    Shai plays this piece to her friends

    to give them courage to overcome their fears.

    The powerful performance is materialized into a brave bear

    and frightens the enemies.


    [​IMG]

    Forest Frenzy


    Shai often plays this piece

    whenever she wants to relieve her anger.

    You better not make Shai angry,

    since the Forest Spirit might express Shai’s anger

    for her.


    [​IMG]

    Let's Win!


    A performance that greatly enhances allies’ morale

    and elicits their potential.

    Believe it or not,

    tens and hundreds of adventurers lined up

    from Calpheon to Valencia

    just to listen Shai play this performance.

    Though we may not prove if this is true,

    we can assure that it has the power to turn the battle around.


    Shai, the new class that will bring a new sensation to Black Desert Online!

    I’m sure you are curious about how Shai will play us her beautiful melodies!


    Soon enough, you will be able to meet Shai who was enlightened by the Melody of Light,

    so please look forward to it!


    Thank you.

    Having a Bard class, I've only seen it in Anime's so far (Log Horizon for example) but this sounds like it works about the same way. Very interesting. ^^

    There have been troubadours and dirges in Everquest since its creation, so not really anything new.

    I didn't say they don't exist yet. I just said I haven't seen them yet. ^^
    Then again, I only played pretty mainstream MMOs in the past. WoW, GW2, and now BDO.

    They were called bards in EQI and then troubadour and dirge in EQII. So yes they did have bards in the original just a different name, same thing.

    Yes there were bards in EQ1 , it was where the term songweaving came from. Because it took massive amounts of dedication to string 3 song buffs on top of doing debuffs/mesmerize song together without macroing it, was actually a difficult class to master and play correctly especially in the PvP arena in Freeport.

    I stand corrected, I had forgotten about bards. It has been a while... Played from Beta to around mid 2001. Sigh...

    Toot! Toot! And thus the support/life skill class causes futher delay to life skill mastery and becomes an enemy to one of the very things she semi proudly represented. (Pre-passive skill nerf anyway) Toot! Toot!

    I wonder if she's going to learn a song that lets her ride a goddamned horse.

    It warms my heart to see respect for old school bards still exists. I can still remember killing an entire rival raid by kiting her through their forming groups as I pulled her to my own guild.

    Also... that first Shai is pretty lewd....
