It’s probably about time to dive into a game of Black Desert as the pirate-themed class Corsair pulls into harbour today. The woefully underused class has been making waves since her announcement at the Heidel Ball. After all, pirates are universally beloved yet rarely playable in MMOs. So don’t be surprised if the Season Servers - which also open today - are flooded with spirited seafarers.

Corsair was the latest addition to the colourful class roster of BDO. Her introduction followed a heavily sea-themed teaser trailer for the Heidel Ball. And for good reason. Her skills include summoning the ocean itself using the power of the Mareca, a mystical jewel that transforms her into a mermaid. While in pirate form, Corsair wields the Serenaca - a composite sword with an extendable blade. Basically one badass cutlass.

Ahead of Corsair’s arrival today, Pearl Abyss released the following preview to showcase her powers in all their aquatic glory.

## Corsair Events

The arrival of Corsair also brings a few events for players to take advantage of.

  • Patrigio’s Gifts: Corsair’s father, Patrigio, awaits in Velia with some gifts to help start her adventure. These include Kydict’s Crystal, which can be fused onto Helmet Sockets, and five High Quality Draught Boxes containing Verdure, Beast’s and Giant’s Draughts.

  • Corsair Level Up Event: Rake in a treasure trove of rewards by reaching level goals before 4th August in EU & Asia, or 3rd August in NA. These rewards are only available to Corsair.

  • Reach for the Skies: Players who reach level 60 can participate in a lottery to win a free iPad and AirPod. Not bad for a day's gaming.

Needless to say, it’s full-speed ahead as the BDO summer season promises a bountiful few months.
