Shai discovers her Talent! "Toot! Toot! Listen to my music whenever you feel afraid.”

12 July 2019 13:00



Full of curiosity, Shai approaches the forbidden cave where she suffers a terrible nightmare from which she will never awake and loses all her memories. Nevertheless, she gets to face the Black Illusion once again.

Can Shai overcome her fears and return to her cheerful, bright past self?

Adventurers, accompany Shai throughout the grand journey that awaits her!



“The girl who embraces the light of the world”


If each and every person is virtuous, would virtue truly exist?

If each and every person shines bright, could all bear the name of light?

Light may only exist because there is darkness.


A Shai girl born in the darkness, carrying the First Light within her,

ceded to her curiosity and lost all her memories to the Black Illusion.

She then left Florin to go on a long journey,

but the wheel of fortune turned, and she got to face the Black Illusion again.


“I am the shadow the light of your curiosity has borne.”


The Black Illusion she met for the third time spoke only a few words,

and tried to swallow not her memories, but everything she had this time.

The moment the darkness was about to devour her light completely,

a stream of light broke through the darkness and crossed over the infinite space.


When he saw the girl who barely escaped to the town,

Chief Valentine said something surprising.


“So you saw the Black Illusion...”


Ironically, the Black Illusion has never ceased to exist as long as the light existed.

Valentine was also one of the lights of the Shai.

Valentine taught the girl how to escape from the nightmarish illusion.

Artina, the wandering musician...

Valentine, who overcame the Black Illusion with Artina’s help,

hoped for another miracle and sent the girl to the musician.


“Who is trying to disturb me this time?”


Shai’s first encounter with the cranky, bad-tempered teacher thus happened.

Artina, charmed by how earnest and pure Shai was,

decided to teach Shai true music,

hoping that music would create the same miracle for her

just like it did to Valentine decades ago.


“I am neither a Wizard nor a Healer. I just love music.”


Shai started to learn about music with Artina’s help

and realized the beauty it holds.

The heart of the once weak, helpless girl

became harder and stronger, little by little.

She then decided that she would play beautiful music

not for herself, but for the whole world.


Before Shai knew it, her eyes were no longer filled with fear of the Black Illusion

but with confidence and a purpose that she would drive out all darkness from the world.


“Play your music for the world. And do it properly, otherwise I will take your instruments back!”


Leaving behind Artina’s nagging words of concern,

Shai took another step forward, in search of the world’s darkness.

Now her friends, lovers of beautiful melodies and music, stand behind her.


“Because the shadow of the darkness can never win against the light’s melody” 


Shai discovers her Talent!


We previously revealed to you an image of Shai with her instruments through the June 15th announcement.

However, that was only the tip of the iceberg!


‘Tring’ in the form of a lute,

‘Tute’ in the form of a flute,

‘Tamtam’ in the form of djembe.


Unlike other classes who are awakened into new sources of power,

Shai will “discover her Talent” to learn the melody of light and start utilizing three types of musical instruments as her weapon!

What will Shai show with her newly-discovered talents?


Three Musical Instruments, Multiple Talents



Do it Better!

When Shai plays this energetic tune, an aurora lights up the skies. She and her allies feel powerful, and they know they can do better!


Shout to the Sky

When Shai plays this tune full of life for her allies, they will all get HP buffs. This doesn't mean they should recklessly charge into the battlefield though!


Sun, Moon, Stars

A tune with a dynamic rhythm to provide agility to Shai and her allies. The fast beat gets the heart racing and legs pumping.



Summer Rain

This tune was composed by Shai on a hot summer day. Like summer rain on a scorching day, the music gives her and her allies temporarily reprieve. Reprieve from the heat? No, from debuffs.


Shai, the new class that will bring a new sensation to Black Desert Online!

I’m sure you are curious about how Shai will play us her beautiful melodies!


Soon enough, you will be able to meet Shai who was enlightened by the Melody of Light,

so please look forward to it!


Thank you.
