New Character Class ‘Shai’ Now Available in Black Desert on Xbox One

Pearl Abyss has announced that Black Desert’s newest character class, Shai, is now available on Xbox One. Shai is the first-ever support class for the Black Desert franchise, providing a variety of new combat abilities and skill-buffs focused on avoiding danger while aiding her allies.

A mischievous being from the forests near Florin, Shai has remarkable agility and is best utilized when striking from a distance. Shai carries the powerful Florang— a boomerang-like weapon that hits enemies before finding its way back to her. Shai additionally wields the mystical Vitclari, a small glowing trinket that heals and protects her allies.

Using her weapons in tandem, Shai delivers new gameplay possibilities for players. Notable skills include:

  • One-Two-Three — A basic skill which throws the Florang up to three times, knocking back all enemies that are hit.
  • Eat This! — Shai powerfully throws her Florang in a long-range attack.
  • Over Here! — Sha creates a shielded area that can protect her allies from enemy attacks.
  • Come Out, Come Out! — By using her Vitclari, Shai reveals hidden enemies.
  • Play Dead —  Shai can ‘play dead’ and trick other players, but it may not work against monsters…

Black Desert veterans will find new scenarios and upgraded life skills to make Shai a worthwhile class to experience. An expert in Gathering and Alchemy, Shai will immediately be able to create the most-potent elixirs and other magical items. Shai is the first class able to create bonfires to heal allies, as well as the only class to unlock new mount skills for donkeys.

The Shai pre-launch customization event was a huge success, resulting in 80% of Xbox One players participating to earn new rewards. For adventurers who weren’t able to participate, from today through July 3, players can create and level up a Shai character to Lv 30 to receive exclusive titles and currency. These can be claimed by players on July 10 within their in-game mail.
