Shadow shell 40% dmg reduction + 50% superarmor with Shadow Wraight that CD resets all skills with 15% healing to top it off with 4 skills of ~7,000-10,000% damage and THAT’S only 2nd subclass ;o. Wait for 3T skill and pimp up of 2T skill… Compared to dark cleric 8,000% sawblde ONLY skill that does such damage when in reality it does only 4k (9/10 times u throw the blade), so cleric is more or less 4k max dmg ….. She will be freaken DESTROYER solo of all drago nests


Ebony Spark Enhancement (B)

Hi Chaose5, I found all Black Mara’s skills GIF here from Duowan 🙂


Thanks for your effort in updating news about DN always!


I posted this here incase you need this:

Black Mara Skill Preview


I am just waiting for DN to introduce a Bard Class, MUSIC IS POWER! maybe have the Lancea or the Machina have it as a second class, Support, Damage Dealer!


Can already tell shes broken as shit.


Something “new” about Black Mara, posted in NA forum.


credits to thread owner~


Why the new characters are female only? Wow… Will DN have only 3 male characters?


It’s not a new character. It’s just the spin of soccerer sam like avanger and silver hunter and also Ark from cleric




I think…DN only have 2 characters that dub with real male dubber….warrior is dubbed by female…. Include japan or Korea dub.

Bullshit promise

It looks like they even doesn’t care about awakening skills for 3 lastest heroes as they promise will be realesed on november ( 6month after 3 early classes skill awake release on May ).
They focused to spin-off characters that even never been discused before and let these 3 heroes an “discrimination” until 2017.

Good job devs.


They never said that spin off /hero classes would gain awakenings, in fact it was even stated that the spin offs WOULD NOT receive them, only the original classes….

Bullshit promise

I think u dont understand of my statement, what i mean is they had released a spin-off characters before all of original classes get awake skills that a spin off-c even doesn’t discussed before on big press media likes they promised for all ori characters before on May in Korea


I would only support your disagreement after november and the 3 jobs still didnt get awake yet


can’t wait for the kali awakening skills info. getting tired of my underpowered blade dancer not dealing decent amount of damage compared to my lancea even tho the dancer equipment is way better


you must be joking right..
dancers from the long long time a go are OP dps both in pvp and pve
even without awekening they’re still feared in pvp. include me,
just learn more how to use dancer properly. I bet you’re still suck with her


Lol BD underpowered


As i read the skills descriptions, “Doom Bolt” came unto my attention. It actually gave me a picture of Naruto fighting w/ Orichimaru wherefom, “Launch bolt which is formed by gathering dark aura. The power is increased as you gather more dark aura.” #justsayin
