      I don't even care what Tree of Savior has to show anymore unless they announce a beta date.

    3. Soultaker

      I know the waiting is horrible but the thing is that they are doing development differently. They're doing it in stages. First stage is already underway in buying houses next phase is going to be looking and exploring the house that you bought and be able to decorate it. There's a ton to look forward too.

      Stages can be less stressful on devs and the fans.

      Let me know when they open the game to players, maybe a small beta or something.

  5. i've updated my Revival post if anyone is interested (still working on getting videos and images in the post) http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/112750-revival-online/#entry533386

  6. Anyone else excited for Revival? www.revivalgame.com

      It promises a lot of stuff. I really like the sound of our characters not following following pre-determined quests and such. I'm also really liking the look of it. Has this dark Demon's/Dark Souls look.

      Yeah there's a ton of promises and that's what scares me but I'd they come through its gonna be awesome.

  7. So apparently PA is trying out a hybrid housing system in cbt3 http://black-desert.com/interviews/black-desert-com-interview-with-pearl-abyss-daum-communications-at-gamescom-2014/ Navel combat confirmed and valk class has light heals. Theres more too but i havent finished reading it yet. Also fighting in the rain reduces damage.
  8. I want to know what other pets they'll be making and curious about the books and if people will be able to make their own books and documents
  9. Eh ive had most of my questions answered by the black desert forums :) and they'll be doing an interview of their own as well. Naval combat will be in the game as well. Cbt3 will not have new classes and apparently PA is doing some rebalancing between pve and pvp.
  10. Lol I've always had more of a liking for the medieval art and aspects
  11. Why is that? Im excited that Daum is publishing the game and building an office in NA also PA will be at Gamescom
  12. I can't believe i've forgotten but who did our guild signature again T_T
