Black Desert Online Beta

I recently had the opportunity to play Black Desert Online in their second closed beta session for their upcoming Western release. Thank you Joe of Gadgets & Khajiits for providing me with a code! I hadn’t been interested in the game prior to trying it. In fact, my first impression of the game was negative. From what I had seen and heard about the game before I even played, I thought that the “boob jiggle” animation, gender locked classes, and revealing female outfits perpetuated sexism and objectified women. However, I tried the game, and I liked it a lot! None of that other stuff mattered anymore. Do not judge a book by its cover! Here’s what I thought about Black Desert Online after trying it out.

Disenchant

“Disenchant” is an action you do in Skyrim to learn new magical abilities (enchantments) to add to your weapons and armor. In the process of disenchantment, you destroy the item. (Currently, I think I’m at level 98 out of 100 Enchanting skill in Skyrim!) I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim for the past few weeks, and I can’t help but think: I am disenchanted with Star Wars: The Old Republic.
