Black Desert’s 24th newest class, Drakania, is the very antithesis of Guardian. One stands as the destroyer of the Ynix while the other stands as its bearer. What led these two to walk such opposing paths?

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
