It appears that the Development Team of Bless Online overhauled the combat system. Everything looks much more dynamic now. Movement and evading seems to be one of the biggest changes, but the system by itself looks much smoother and more action-packed now. In the video you can see the 4 classes from the first closed beta, the Guardian, Berserker, Cleric and Ranger fighting their way through a solo dungeons with an huge ember boss.
Enjoy the video:
The second Closed Beta is coming closer and closer. Neowiz released a new trailer today which shows the war between the 2 nations in the game. The recruitment for the second closed beta will start this month, the beta will probably start in december. We really hope that we will be able to participate in the upcoming closed beta. Unfortunately it’s for koreans only and there are no signs for a western or SEA Publisher yet.
Pmang just announced that they will hold a short Focus Group Test from November 6th – November 9th. You can apply for the Group Test here. This Test is for Koreans only. We hope that we can participate in this Beta, but we can’t promise it yet. A new Video which shows how Cinematic Videos are being made has been released as well. You can watch it below.
Hello Everyone! We are getting another look at the world of Bless. Last time we read some pretty interesting stories and saw some stunning locations! Let’s see what they have to show on their second preview!!
The Cursed Land, Forest Of The Dead
The evil forces at work have contorted the forest’s animal and plant life. The trees have been distorted and the animals are suffering from sickness and disease. The Forest of The Dead, filled with horror and pain, is not a place for anyone to live (Obviously… It’s a forest of DEATH!).
This once beautiful forest had four distinct seasons. Now the forest looks broken, plagued with the undead, this forest will forever be clouded in a dense fog. The changes to this forest have made living conditions so hazardous and deplorable that many have fled the cursed land (Oooooh~ Ominous).
This forest is filled with not just the undead, but the ghosts of those who still have ties to the material world. Ghosts who have died unjustly stay here now.
Drowning in sorrow, Beiron
In the past, Beiron, located at Korenus Mountain, was a place where merchants and traders often used as a passage between the north and south. The Korenus Mountain is a dangerous place filled with rough terrain and barbaric creatures, so Beiron was the path of choice for many traders. Beiron quickly became a base for traders and travelers, a transportation hub where goods were gathered, exchanged and transported.
However, the Nigratris disaster struck Beiron and Korenus. The fragments of chaos that was gathered at Beiron attracted demons. It transformed a once bustling trade hub in to a war zone.
Endless conflict, Korenus Mountain
A rough, rugged and harsh terrain that separates the Hieron’s Habitchts and the Union’s Amistad, this region is very important geographically. Not only does the mountain represent the border between the 2 nations, it also provides the shortest distance to the capitals of the respective continents.
Even though the terrain is rough, the terrain could provide a unique strategic value to either nation. Thus, conflict occurs every day between each nation to claim the mountain as their own.
A giant canyon, Wyvern Valley
Wyvern Valley consists of canyons so deep and huge, as well as mountains so high that it makes this valley near impossible to traverse through. A scorching desert with its sandy terrain makes vegetation rather difficult to grow. In addition, with the heat impossible to hide from and all of the aforementioned traits of the valley, those who step in inevitably become wyvern prey.
City Of Death, Tyranny
Along the eastern road of the southern continent, we find a desolate and dreary town. This is Tyranny. Players will meet this new city during the 2nd CBT in their mid to late game phases. The 2012 G-Star event presented a battle against the Death Knight. Tyranny is the location of that epic showdown.
Originally, Tyranny was the center of culture and the arts, a cultural city of the southern continent. However, for reasons unknown, an exhaust created a heavy fog covering the sun and Tyranny has become a city infested with hordes of the undead.
At the center of the city is an old-fashioned mansion with glimpses of culture Tyranny once was. Now it has become a new home to a mysterious vampire clan.
This has been the second environment/world update for Bless.
We got to learn so much about the world of Bless (I feel like I’m going to be a walking encyclopedia for Bless haha), and boy, things got dark.
Anyways~ I hope you guys enjoyed reading this pretty dark preview of the continents and check back later for more bless related news. Bye~
Hello everyone!! We have been “Blessed” with another update for the upcoming second beta test! This update we get to see some stunning artwork and a more in-depth look in to the story of Hieron. Hieron strives to protect civilization and preserve its history and culture.
Turtle Lake, a place that lost its peace and tranquility
A village that once belonged to the Habichts, the “Turtle Lake” name comes from the landscape, the large rocky hills surrounding the lake resembles a turtle. Because of the large mountains surrounding the village, communicating and interacting with the outer realms was difficult. However, the mountains also provided protection as well. The villagers lived in peace and tranquility until the
fire nation *cough* Orcs attacked. The Orcs live north of Turtle Lake and their invasion of Turtle Island was a difficult one. The mountainous shell of the village made it tough to invade, but the never-ending assault from the Orcs slowly penetrated the turtle. Many of Turtle Lake’s Habichts inhabitants left the area in search of safety.
Sylvan Elves’ beautiful city, El Gradis
El Gradis is a beautiful city surrounded by greenery everywhere. And I mean a lot of trees and stuff just look at the picture below, it’s a lot of trees. The city gives a very warm and serene atmosphere for the Sylvan Elves that reside there. Though some curious Sylvan Elves seek natural beauty in all things and often travel to the outer realms to find snow, deserts, canyons, etc. To match the Sylvan Elves’ ideals of harmony and balance, the city is built to emphasize those ideals. Also, there are a plethora of plant life and animal life that are both mysterious and beautiful in the region. However, the landscape received some damage because of the war to the point where you can see withering clearly. To those of you who will pick the Sylvan Elves as the race of your choice, remind yourself of their ideals and help restore balance and harmony.
The bright and brilliant spin wheel is an object of magical wonder hidden within the outskirts of El Gradis [I hope it’s a mini-“outskirt” =3 Sylvan Elves are HOT] It catches the interest of many travelers *wink*.
Home of the Lupus
A lot of time has passed, but this mysterious and strange forest gets many visits from humans. Those who come to see Bran Forest’s guardian spirit, some come to hire the Lupus as mercenaries, and others come to train spirituality and mental fortitude. The Lupus are usually welcoming to those who travel deep in to the forest to find them, but to those who come to disturb their peace be warned. The lupus has a dangerous and unpleasant side to them.
Looking at west of Bran Forest, big towering monuments can be found. It looks cool from a distance but the truth is, these structures were made by termites, the giant Termite Tower.
Hieron’s capital city, Hierakon
After experiencing the introductory storyline for each race, everyone will gather at Hieron’s capital “Hierakon”. Originally, Hierakon was built for the purpose of being a fort/barracks to fight against orcs, goblins, and other dangerous tribes. However, an idea of a grand and dignified empire was kept in mind which helped the city become what it is today. Much time has passed and the fort has undergone numerous additions and improvements. The city gradually looks more and more like a grand imperial empire. However, you can find traces of those improvements leaving clunky and crudely built remnants of the older structures.
Ostium, the city of education
Ostium, located adjacent to Hierakon, is a city built around Hieron’s largest university, Carta University. Because many travelers passed by the city while heading to Hierakon, the name “Ostium”, which means entrance (in Latin), was given to the city. Ostium, being a city focused on education, studied and large variety of fields. In particular, they cultivated their knowledge regarding the environment such as ecology, geology, and botany. While Ostium’s big interest is the vastness of nature, the recent attack on native species and the research groups taking objects of interest from the environment have angered a swarm of beetles which is making future research increasingly difficult.
Knight and shepherd district. Malgalgi meadow
For a long time, this meadow was the Habichts’ best place to groom horses and knights. Many of the locals who breed horses are related to those knights. The region is mainly made up of prairies and grasslands but as you head east the ground gets higher and you get to see a beautiful steep mountain view.
Lakes and hills, Florin
Florin, also called land of lakes and hills, is a beautiful zone. One of the most luscious and fertile environments in Hierakon with its rich soils and abundant rivers, Florin boasts its beauty. Deep within the forests of Florin, there are a variety of fairies that live there, that area is called the singing forest. The Sylvan Elves often pay their old friends a visit. The singing forest has a lush, mysterious and refreshing feel to it and has intrigued many people. However, due to rumors of the forest being haunted, the forest is becoming more disconnected from the world.
This concludes this update on bless! What do you guys think? We certainly enjoyed learning about the realm of Hieron, though I’d like to know more about the south =O!!
As always guys! Thanks for reading and come back for more bless updates in the future!
