The Wizard and Witch are the Final Classes to Awaken in Black Desert Online on fifa15guide

The Wizard and Witch are the Final Classes to Awaken in Black Desert Online on fifa15guide

 

Today, Black Desert Online unlocks the true potential of the Wizard and Witch classes, the last pair to Awaken. Both the Wizard and Witch are known for their devastating elemental attacks, calling down massive meteors and stirring up powerful blizzards, often leaving them wide open for counterattacks.

 

Now through the power of their new weapons―the Wizard’s Aad Sphera and the Witch’s Godr Sphera―they are able to channel the elements not only for offensive spells, but also to summon powerful allies who aid them in combat.

 

Watch the Witch and Wizard Awakening Overview video:

 

 

The Wizard gains the ability to summon Keeper Marg and Keeper Arne, fire and water elementals respectively, who will make opponents think twice about trying to sneak in for a kill. The Witch finds friends in Keeper Tett and Keeper Gorr, lightning and earth elementals who, coupled with her new stone wall spell, provide a new layer of defense while the Witch unleashes havoc on the battlefield.

 

Due to popular demand, players can now make a younger looking Wizard using Black Desert Online’s famed character creator. In addition, several in-game events will be held to celebrate the Awakening of all classes. Find more information on the special challenges and rewards here

 

Holiday Event and Sales Continue
There is still time to enjoy Black Desert Online’s holiday sales, including a free seven-day trial, 50% discount on game passes, and festive costume set. These special offers end January 4, 2017, as does the in-game world’s snowy appearance.

Captain Jamie Collins scored the winner from the penalty spot as the lowest-ranked side in the competition shocked the Championship high-flyers.

No less than 83 places separated these teams but Leeds manager Garry Monk, clearly concentrating on promotion back to the Premier League, paid the price for making 10 changes to his line-up.

Craig Burley recaps Man United’s comfortable FA Cup victory and looks ahead to fixtures crucial to their top four push.

Schweinsteiger, starting his first game for United since Jan. 9, 2016, helped break the deadlock for the hosts on the stroke of half-time — crossing for Marouane Fellaini, who towered above his marker to head home.

Wigan threatened to pull level shortly after the break, with Sergio Romero’s clearance falling kindly to David Perkins, but the Red Devils keeper recovered well to keep out the midfielder’s low strike.

United, however, doubled their lead on 57 minutes, with Chris Smalling finding the back of the net through a header from an Anthony Martial cross.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan made sure of the result after 74 minutes, playing the ball into Martial before racing into the box to get on the end of his cross to tap in from close range.

And Schweinsteiger completed the scoring nine minutes from time, striking home on the turn after Ander Herrera had nodded down a corner into his path.

Elsewhere, Fulham will join them in the next round after a 4-1 win over Premier League side Hull City.

The hosts put four past a Hull outfit who looked lethargic throughout the game with former Tigers forward Sone Aluko opening the scoring for Fulham just 17 minutes in.

The Tigers equalised shortly after half-time through Lazar Markovic but goals from Chris Martin, Ryan Sessegnon and Stefan Johansen put the game to bed before Hull striker Abel Hernandez failed to convert two late penalty kicks at Craven Cottage.

Millwall recorded a 1-0 home victory over Watford that took them into the fifth round.
