As far as character customisations go this might be the most beautiful character creation tool I've seen in any MMORPG. I started with a Lahn character template from BDOtemplates.com and went to work.
I took a 3 year break from Black Desert Online. The developers brought out a new class called the Lahn (gender locked to female).
Lahns are martial artists who crossed over to the Black Desert continent from a far eastern kingdom. When they are fighting with the Crescent Pendulum, it almost looks like they are dancing as they cut through their enemies. They are agile and quick on their feet and can quickly deliver devastating attacks by swinging their Crescent Pendulum. By careful manipulation of the swinging motion, they can even deliver attacks from all sides. While enemies are distracted by the bold movements of the Crescent Pendulum, they can swiftly move great distances in the air.
I took her up to about Level 53 (April 2019) before i hit the gear wall. I didn't want to grind much further than that. Ironically 53 is the highest I've ever gotten in the game since I never bothered to grind levels in 2016.
That forced smile. LOL
She reminds me of Tomia. The original designer probably used some character references to create this template and you can do a lot with the character creator in Black Desert Online. Character creation is a game on its own.
If you have a template you can deposit it in this folder (the templates themselves don't have file types so just label them with the suffix _template):
C:\Users\username\Documents\Black Desert\Customization\*put template here*
Yeah definitely prefer non-smiling.
Close up is where the character creator really shines. You can observe so much expression and detail up close here, but you won't see much of it in the actual game.
Even the basic costumes in game are pretty nice for a free-to-play game. The Chinese dress is stunning.
In-Game Store Costumes
These look great but they aren't cheap. A full costume and weapon set will cost you USD$30. Underwear is extra too. It's quite outrageous even by my standards. In 2016 I spent about USD$150 on this game so I won't be repeating that mistake no matter how pretty these look. I actually bought costumes for my trading cart, horses and boat. I got a cute af magikarp costume and I bought an angel costume for my Tamer, which I'll show you on another page.
Yes there is underwear in the game. In fact there are so much underwear in the store that you think this is some kind of promo to sell actual lingerie. They set you back about USD$7 and give your character +1 LUCK which affects loot drop rates.
