Introduce New Class - Fighter

Good morning!

We’ve spent all of October to introduce you to the new class “Fighter” for easier understanding.

Here’s a sneak peek of the Fighter’s pictures and intro clip as well as Fighter's Guide!
Please keep visiting our forum page and checking back what’s updating about the fighter!

Q. What is the Fighter Class?

Fighter features a martial-art specialist with various combinations of punch and kicks which quickly approaches the enemy to inflict the greatest damage in the quickest time.

Players start out as Fighter, and become Speeder or Balancer upon Ascending and a main weapon is Gauntlets or Tonfas depending on your Sub-Class.

The type of weapon used will affect combat style. Tonfas have a slower attack speed but fires great powerful damage. Gauntlets are much faster, and can hit multiple chain skills quickly in succession for a more dynamic style.

Q. What’s Excel and Pressure system?

-Excel System-

Speeder is affected by the Excel System which offences
opposites with more fast attack and movement speed
when hitting combination attacks increasingly.

-Pressure System-

Balancer is affected by the Pressure System which unleashes
overwhelming power on enemies by releasing a key
where you are going to use at right timing.

Q. How to Control?

Basic Keys Settings
A, S : Right-Hand / Right Kick – Strong Attack(Cooldown: 2s)
Z, X : Left-Hand / Left Kick – Normal Attack(Cooldown: 0s)

When you use normal attack more than 5 times consecutively in 4 seconds,
unintended Strong attack will be unleashed in agitation.

This is a game I honestly had to reccomend, it is incredibly addicting, fun to play, challenging and very time consuming. The last one may not seem as a positive trait of the game to average player, but do not worry, if you are an average player that is not going for the best items etc. it shouldn't be even half as time consuming as for the more dedicated players. But well it depends on you of course.

Going further into the review, I really have to endorse the combat system, it is one of the most enjoyable combat systems I know, (not the best, but definetely the top), combat both PvM and PvP is very fast paced, action packed, skill based and full of surprieses. The more time you spend with your skills the more you will learn about them. It took me waaay to long to realise that i can control my character in midair during/after many of my attacks.
For the people who dislike the combat in the game, I can only suggest one thing, try another character, maybe this is not your preffered playstyle? Classes do differ considerably when it comes to combat style and strategy you have ot use.
Coming back to the PvP part, Outsider vs Outsider was probably the fastest and most skillbased fight i have ever took part in (And I spend my grand share of time in Jedi Academy and Mount and Blade, to witness what skillbased means).

Another thing I really appreciate about the game are the guild dungeons, that really provide the players with challenge, of course as you grow stronger you will eventually be able to solo the easier Asuras (as the guild dungeons are called), but this will not come easily ;)

The thing I dislike the most about the game is sadly the story telling, story telling in the game is terrible, and especially the first part of ACT 3 was immensly boring. BUT the plot as the whole is good. I am still trying to wrap my head around how can you create a good plotline with bad story telling, but well Nexon sure delivered, especially the second part of ACT4 deserves to be praised. I am really anxious to see what will happen next, the sooner ACT5 is released, the better (but not sooner than it's properly done, please.). When it comes to the world creation, one thing I praise the most, is that we get a lot of mysteries to unreveal later, for example payers knew that there is some characer named Necromancer, for a very long time, but no one had any idea if it's an important character or just some extra untill the ACT 4 was released. I would really like to explain more about this, but really do not want to spoil for the fellow lore-lovers.

There is many, many, MANY things I could also ta about and say how good they were, I also realise that the game has some other problems than bad story telling, but I would probably take months to write to a review about every aspect of this game, it is ust too rich in content for me to write such article.
If you have any questions about the game, please leve them in the comments, I'll do my best to answer your questions.

P.S - This game is NOT pay 2 win, and altohugh paying player can get an adventage over normal one, there is NOTHING that can't be achived without paying, that's right even without spending a single cent on the game you can lay your hands on every single item in game. Paying players do not have better EQ, there is not way in this game to buy EQ, for real money. Cheers :)

It's a side-scrolling, mature (blood and dismembered body parts) hack-and-slash mmo game. It currently has 5 classes, each with two advanced classes. If you ever played Dungeon Fighter Online, you would be familiar with combat. Each character has a basic attack and special moves can be performed either by pressing a shortcut key or street fighter like motions, which saves mp. The current max level is 50. You can get a random pet and pvp at the arena is available once you reach level 30, though the time slot is limited. There's a stress system, which prevents you from playing all day, but it's not that bad. There are several life skills to choose, such as fishing, mining, armorsmith, weaponsmith, etc. The one major downside is it's hard to find people to play with unless you're part of an active guild.

First impressions give me a feel that is very similar to Final Fantasy games. The artwork and the way characters repeat the same sentence over and over again are reminescent of the Final Fantasy Tactics. You can automate fishing in this game.

Will try to complete the game at level 50 and Act 1 to 4 to add on more stuff.

1. Good Graphics
The character models are very detailed. Their movements can be narrowed down to the smallest detail such as the moving of the arms, turning around, walking up and down. Nice visual effects from the spells. NPCs are drawn with a portrait and come with nice character models. Ambient details such as eagles soaring in the air, goats and rats help to build a believeable environment. Killing a boss renders a slow motion kill just like Street Fighter. Character models are biased towards an all-male audience. [All very minor details]

2. Good Fighting System
Fighting revolves around using the QWERTY, ASDFGH keys for spells and the arrow keys for movement. Simple combos can be executed just be random button mashing.

3. Training Centre
They have a training centre in-game for you to train your PVP/PVE skills

1. Empty
There is no one playing this game. The game is structured so that you will play it solo. It's not an MMORPG. It's just a JRPG. The N key allows for dungeon matching but there is no one to match you with at the low levels.

2. Repetitive questing
Gameplay is centred around going to zones, then entering dungeons, then repeating them 3 times. From Normal->Special->Rare->Unique levels. You will be playing the same zone over and over again before you can move on. It is pretty boring to get stuck at Gnogue Haran for the 1st ten levels of the game.

3. Spelling errors
Precious is spelled "Previous" by the Goblin Sorceror, so "My Previous Monster" does not sound very intimidating. This is a minor issue as you won't read much of the fluff.

4. Storyline
Okay. Each class has a different story and beginning. E.g. Mage was a weak student until demons attacked her school and killed her teacher, causing her to release all her demonic energy in a single instance.. Fighter is a decendant of one of the great heroes who won a great war against the demons from 500 years ago.

game has great mechanics and potential but poorly managed. Awful translations and very questionable ethics in cash shop gambling (lack of details and information communicated to probability of success/failure).

Despite the complaints on the stress system, I actually like this game.

The quest successions aka storylines aren't terrible. They're actually alright,
Combat is pretty self explanitory, If you co-ordinate your moves you'll do well.
When you're low on, or plain run out of stress there are other things to do. Work on fishing/collecting/upgrade weapons.\
Asura's dungeons do not use stress.
Playable when drinking

Community in game vs the boards is rather lacking from what I've seen. However visiting on a busier channel can help if you're looking to party up.
Stress system limits gameplay, especially in earlier levels. However it's FTP and they have recently increased the stress system so it's a bit better
Characters are gender based on class, pretty irritating
Store is ridiculously expensive

On a whole? This game actually has potetial, however the player base isn't high enough to utilze what it could do (player based stores, expanded guild stuff, current parties regardless of level). It doesn't help that there are constantly leveling promotions ongoing. While that works for simple things, it does make the current max level of 50 too easy to achieve for some players. This game, I spend more time then I care to admit playing it, however I think the creators could do better. As a FTP, I'd give it a go. It is fun, however I have a feeling that it won't be around for terribly long.

Garbage. Little effort into the combat system, "press the x key", on top of a play time limiter on your character. Wnat your character to look better? Then get ready for some expensive microtransactions for a game that really isnt worth it. Not worth downloading even if it is free to play.

I've been a dedicated dark blood online fan for a little over 2 years now and i don't think i'll ever stop playing this amazing dungeon crawling, arcade style MMO. The companies resurrection of DBO was one of the most sudden and appreciated things i experieced this year and i hope i never have endure it disappearing from my life again.

If you liked games like DFO (Dungeon Fighter Online) and/or Kritika (i know it's a korean game but, still) then you'll definately enjoy Dark Blood Online in it's entirety.

WHY ARE YOU STILL READING? GET TO DOWNLOADING oh, you wanted a pros and cons table?

+It's free
+It's a dungeon crawler
+Action filled cutscenes
+Mysterious figures and create storylines for them
+Currently 5 classes and 10 subclasses (2 per class) and another class on it's way
+Challenging dungeons
+Working Dodging system
+Extensive and thought-out skill trees for each character
+End-game content
+Unique events and giveaways
+Things to do after you finish maxing stress
+Short Maintnence and update times

+Stress system (limits your playtime, kinda sucks)
+Small Playerbase (lack of advertising)
+Daunting skilling system (mining and collecting life skills)

whoa, that's all i got that i don't like

Apparently moderators in this game doesn't care about their players enough to fix bugs as soon as reported, not mentioning the priority to only profit and make people spend their money on dumb stuff like dyes that players obtain " random colours" unless the player pay double or triple the amount to nearly have his selected colour. Not to mention ranking pvp or boss fight bugs. Thank you for leaving such a wonderful image for our game in the head of ur players.
Epic just epic....

By making you use the keyboard it makes it a bit overwhelming. Personaly I do not recommend spending any time on this F2P classic sidescrolling button mashing beat 'm up. There are plenty of better free games.
