In Black Desert Online, horoscopes give characters a small boost. Here are the best horoscopes for a player to choose.
Since it came out, Black Desert Online has been one of the most beautiful MMOs to ever come out. Black Desert Online is still one of the most popular free-to-play MMOs since it came out, thanks to its high fantasy setting and fast-paced action. Black Desert Online has a standard set of Classes, but it’s the lore that really pulls players into a deep story. In the world of the game, a disease called the “Black Death” has killed off most of the people, and Calpheon and Valencia end up at war with each other.
The story starts when the two countries find out that the mysterious black stones have hidden power and that they are in Valencia’s huge Black Desert, which is why the game is called that. If a player really wants to get into the story of the game, they might also want to explore the spiritual side of it. After all, the game lets players choose Horoscopes for their characters, which are just fluff stats that can improve a character’s relationship with NPCs and give them benefits. But which Black Desert Online horoscopes do fans like best?
Characteristics: Naive, Stereotypical
The owl is one of the most popular animals in fantasy books, especially those about Greek mythology, because it is a symbol of wisdom. In turn, it’s surprising that the Owl Horoscope is a part of the overall story in the Black Desert Online MMO. What’s even more interesting is that the Owl Horoscope isn’t associated with wisdom and intelligence like it usually is, but with words like “naive” and “stereotypical.”
If a player wants to make a “normal” character or a new Black Desert Online character, they might want to use the Owl Horoscope. But since there are more complicated Horoscopes, the Owl might not be a good choice in terms of how it looks.
The Owl: Try The Shai
In Black Desert Online, the Shai is the only Class that is designed to become a full-support character. Her smaller size makes her cute, and the Shai has the same energy and spirit, which is only matched by her natural curiosity. Even though the Shai are only expected to live for about 40 years, the fact that they are explorers makes their time on Earth worthwhile.
They know so much about the subject that they’ve found herbs that can help them live longer. This Class uses a boomerang and fits well in the Owl constellation, especially for players who like to explore.
Characteristics: Docile, Enduring, Patient, Witty
When it comes to modern zodiac signs, astrology fans usually look to either classic Western Astrology, in which constellations are linked to certain times of the month, or Chinese Astrology, in which zodiac animals are linked not only to the year but also to the element. Since the story of Black Desert Online involves a lot of animals, this seems to be the case. So, it’s a bit of a surprise to see a Camel Horoscope as one of the game’s options.
Camels are the most shy and quiet of the group. They are called “docile,” “enduring,” “patient,” and “witty.” They are shy and may be introverts at heart, which makes them perfect for players who want to make characters that look innocent, childlike, or cute. Even though the Camel is a perfectly normal Horoscope, it may not be chosen if there are other names that sound more “badass.”
The Camel: Try The Tamer
When the last baby of a royal family that was killed made it to the forbidden island of Haemo, the animals there took her in and raised her as their own. When the martial artist Hwisa and his animal companion Heilang saw the girl, Hwisa took care of her. The girl’s wild nature made it hard for her to talk to people, but her connection to animals made it much easier for her to learn.
And as they traveled, the humble Tamer made it her job to learn as much as she could about the beautiful culture. The fact that she can control animals makes her Black Desert Online play more interesting. Also, because she has a kind heart, she is a great match for the Camel constellation, which stands for patience, endurance, and wit.
Characteristics: Free, Optimistic, Relaxed, Wanderer
Since the Black Desert Online MMO is set in a historical fantasy world, it makes sense that its world has both real-world and made-up things. Because the in-game auction house is so big, it makes sense for lore fans to wonder about the many ways items get moved from one place to another. And if you have the Boat Horoscope, this could be a good fit for players and merchants who like to sail.
The Boat Horoscope fits well with Black Desert Online characters who like to go on adventures because it says they are Free, Optimistic, Relaxed, and Wanderer. This fits with the theme of Classes like the Corsair, who are supposed to look like pirates.
The Boat: Try The Witch
In the world of sages, Godr-Ayed Thea were the masters of the primordial, while Labreve was the school of the Witch for women only. After she learned that she could teleport with the help of the Aad’s Pharos, she turned the Labreve into a powerful school. After that, the Witch wanted nothing more than to find a world beyond her portals. In her travels, she has reached a world beyond their own, where she has found the remains of a powerful being who seems to be calling to her.
In Black Desert Online, the Witch is more of a support class than the Wizard. She can teleport to help her allies on the battlefield, while the Wizard is more of a fighter. For roleplayers, the Witch’s desire to learn about magic and explore makes her a good match for the Boat constellation, which is a group of stars that also stands for relaxation, optimism, and wandering.
Characteristics: Ambitious, Dreamer, Nimble, Observer
It’s interesting that the Giant Horoscope is often linked to words like “ambitious,” “dreamer,” “nimble,” and “observer” when it comes to the lore hidden in Black Desert Online’s gameplay. When it comes to monster-related horoscope constellations, the Giant joins the Goblin. This is rare in games with a similar system.
Players might want to get the Giant Horoscope for their character for flavor, especially if their character’s appearance or Class is important to them. Characters that are tall or big enough could look good in the Giant Horoscope, as could Classes that focus on PVP in Black Desert Online, like the Berserker, Dark Knight, Guardian, and Warrior.
The Giant: Try The Musa
Even though he is a lowborn, the Musa will use his poverty to push him to master martial arts. After winning the prestigious Martial God Tournament, he will join the legendary Western Frontiers. When his fellow Western Frontiers members don’t seem to notice the Musa because he hasn’t done much as a mercenary, the Musa can’t help but take out his anger on an older man who won more praise than him in the Tournament. Every year, he vowed to get even with the older man, but every year, he lost.
Musa was finally old enough to learn from his mistakes, so the older man took him on as a student. And when the older man died of old age, Musa would be a wiser person. The Musa’s ambition and skill show in his Black Desert Online Class, where he excels in close combat with the blade and holds his own with the horn bow. For roleplayers, the Musa might be best represented by the Giant constellation, because of his ambition and skills, as well as his ability to pay attention and move quickly.
Characteristics: Committed, Crass, Honorable, Strong, Trustworthy
Even though the Giant already fits the stereotype of a “hardcore fighter,” the Elephant Horoscope sounds like a more interesting choice just by its name. Even though the Elephant isn’t a very important figure in mythology or symbolism, it is interesting to have a character connected to the Horoscope.
The Elephant Horoscope seems to be more about “stability” and being a “gentle giant.” Like the Giant, it works best with Classes like the Berserker, Dark Knight, Guardian, and Warrior.
The Elephant: Try The Striker
The Striker was born into a wealthy family in Calpheon, but he lost everything when his ship sank and he was sent to the Far East. As a child, the Striker was picked on because he was from another country. But the roughness of the streets only made him want to get stronger. Eventually, a martial arts master noticed him and took him under his wing. Over the course of their journey, the Striker learned different ways to fight, which helped him win the coveted Martial God Tournament.
Compared to other Black Desert Online Classes, the Striker uses his gauntlets and vambraces and has flashy kicks and powerful punches. In terms of roleplaying, the Striker is a good match for the Elephant constellation. He or she is strong, loyal, honest, and trustworthy, but also a little bit rude.
Characteristics: Attentive, Determined, Relaxed, Scholar
If you play Black Desert Online MMO and want your in-game Horoscope to be a little different, you might want to check out the Key Horoscope. Aside from being an unusual design choice because the Key is an object, the fact that it is linked to words like “Attentive,” “Resolute,” “Relaxed,” and “Scholar” gives players’ characters an air of being secretive right away.
Players can use the Key Horoscope to give their characters a more mysterious look. This is especially for roleplayers in the MMO who want their eccentric characters to interact with other players. This works well for characters who can also cast spells, like the Lahn in Black Desert Online.
The Key: Try The Wizard
The world of sages, who were descended from the Wizard, looked up to the Godr-Ayed Thea as their most important group, with Lord Red being the best of all of them. Lord Red had more ambition and skill than anyone else, and he wanted to learn more and get better at what he did. He even got in touch with and took control of the primordial spirits Marg of fiery destruction and Arne of watery calm. When some jealous sages made Lord Red look bad and sent him to another realm, he finally realized that Marg was slowly taking over his will and turning him into a being of pure anger and destruction.
He was able to take control of his body again, but another student was already looking for the power he wanted. Lord Red ended up in the world of Black Desert Online when he went to another dimension to protect this young person. The Wizard is one of the more aggressive magic users in the game, and they can cast spells better than anyone else. For roleplayers, this makes the Wizard a great match for the Key constellation, which stands for being focused and determined.
Characteristics: Adaptable, Intelligent, Linguist, Materialistic, Opinionated
Goblins are almost always associated with wanting things and/or being annoying because of what’s been written about them in fantasy books. In turn, a Goblin Horoscope is a bit of a surprise in lore with horoscopes, like the Black Desert Online MMO.
The Goblin Horoscope has words like Adaptable, Intelligent, Linguist, Materialistic, and Opinionated linked to it. It seems like it would be good for characters who want a funny and adventurous look at themselves. In Black Desert Online, roles with many different skills, like the Archer, Kunoichi, Lahn, Ninja, and Ranger, are linked to being free-spirited.
The Goblin: Try The Corsair
The Corsair was once the captain of a pirate ship. Her many adventures made her a legendary figure among sailors. Even though she eventually chose to travel on land because of her adventures, she still hears the call of adventure and treasure. The Corsair is a good Black Desert Online Class because he or she likes to explore and has a sword that can change length.
After her Awakening, she finds out she is the daughter of the God of the Seas. He tells her to find her dark counterpart and stop her at any cost. For roleplayers, the Corsair’s love of money makes her a good fit for the Goblin constellation, which is also about being materialistic, smart, and flexible.
Characteristics: Ambitious, Calculating, Noble, Wealthy
Players who like Black Desert Online because of its setting may have decided to become sellers instead. To make more money, they could gather materials and sell them, or they could do the old-fashioned buy-and-sell in auction houses. People who make characters just for this purpose might want to look into the Wagon Horoscope, especially for keywords like “wealthy” and “calculating.”
Also, players who have a story in their heads about their characters might like how wagons, especially in ancient times, represent business and mercantilism. Those who want to play merchants or businessmen could easily do great things with the Wagon Horoscope and even Black Desert Online Classes like the Dark Knight.
The Wagon: Try The Maewha
When the war in the Far East left a lot of children without parents, some of them had no choice but to steal to stay alive. When a gentleman saw how the orphan avoided a fight with guards, he decided to take her under his wing. Under his guidance, the orphan not only joined the famous Hwasun family, but also learned martial arts at the famous Hwasun Valley institution.
Her skill earned her the title of Maewha, which is given to the highest-ranking female student in the Hwasun. The Maewha is a PVP expert in Black Desert Online. She is the best at both using a sword and a bow, and no one else can beat her. But in terms of roleplay, the Maewha fits the Wagon constellation. This is a person who is ambitious and smart, and whose nobleness and resourcefulness help them get through hard times.
Characteristics: Careful, Ephemeral, Quaint, Secretive
It’s not unusual for MMOs like Funny Shooter 2 and Black Desert Online to have a lot of backstory. And while the Horoscope system gives player characters some much-needed filler, the idea may remind you of games like the Elder Scrolls. But it’s just as strange that its version of a Horoscope system has a category for Sealingstone. This Horoscope is linked to words like “careful,” “ephemeral,” “quaint,” and “secretive,” which all have to do with powerful artifacts that seal dangerous magic.
On the other hand, such a category is perfect for magic users, who make up a large number of Classes in the Black Desert Online meta. If a player has a Mystic, Sage, Sorceress, Wizard, or Witch, they might want to give them the Sealingstone.
The Sealingstone: Try The Dark Knight
The one who would become the Dark Knight came from a long line of protectors who were told by their goddess to save both Kamasylvia and the world. When she was a young girl, she had a dream that the world was on fire, which scared her. And when it seemed like there was no hope left, the young girl was brave enough to break with tradition and do something unexpected: she took in the power of the black spirit that had once corrupted their Ahib brothers.
The other people were taken over by the black spirit, but the Dark Knight was able to fight her off with some kind of secret art. In Black Desert Online, the Dark Knight uses both the power of darkness and a variety of swords to beat his opponents. And if you want to play a role-playing game, the Dark Knight is a good fit for the Sealingstone constellation because it has similar qualities like being secretive, cute, and temporary.
Characteristics: Deliberate, Disciplined, Rational
Players who like to play MMOs like tanks in a simple way might like how blunt the Shield could get. The Shield is the most “melee” of all the Horoscopes in the game. It is grounded and strong, just like its real-life counterpart. The Shield Horoscope is a good choice for players who don’t want to think too hard about their Horoscope choice but still want it to have an effect.
Also, the Shield Horoscope makes it much easier for players to connect their characters to hard-hitting combat styles, like PVE in Black Desert Online dungeons. The Shield can be used by Classes like the Warrior, the Berserker, the Dark Knight, and the Guardian.
The Shield: Try The Warrior
The Warrior is one of the first characters you can play as in Black Desert Online, so he may be the most straightforward of all the Classes. The Warrior is good with both the sword and shield and the greatsword. This is because he is a member of the Goyen Mercenaries. When their brave leader Goyen died protecting his company after being sent on a suicide mission by Dandelion, the company swore revenge against the nation.
And when Dandelion was killed in a later battle, the Goyen Mercenaries and the Warrior swore to find Goyen’s legendary steel sword, which had been lost in the battle where their leader died. The Warrior is perfect for the Shield constellation, which is all about being rational, disciplined, and careful. This is because he is always on a mission to protect his friends.
Characteristics: Brave, Combative, Conservative, Cooperative, Righteous
In Black Desert Online, the Hammer may be the best Horoscope for a hard worker, both for NPCs and for players. Hammers are often associated with merchants and craftsmen, so it makes sense that they are hardworking. They also like to take risks, which makes them a good choice for players who want to make a statement.
Not only that, but they also seem to be one of the most common Horoscopes in the game. Players may notice that stablemaster Lorenzo is a Hammer sign and one of the first NPCs they may be able to get closer to. By getting to know him, players can get better stirrups and Black Desert Online horse armor, which can help them on their journey.
The Hammer: Try The Lahn
The nobles of the Kingdom of Kirin thought it was a blessing when they saw a baby, the Lahn, being born under a beautifully lit orchard. But when her intelligence and potential in martial arts caught the attention of many scholars, even the tyrant king, who was sure she would protect the kingdom when she was born, began to worry about her. Even though jealous noblemen would plot to kill her, the Lahn would win and promise to go back to her kingdom to get justice.
With her crescent pendulum and her knowledge of the noble sword and the glaive, the Lahn is one of the more versatile characters in Black Desert Online because she can use both close-quarters and long-range attacks. In terms of roleplay, the Lahn’s elegance and sense of fairness make her a good fit for the Hammer, a constellation that is also about being right, being brave, and working with others.
Characteristics: Attentive, Exalted, Prestigious, Sensitive, Social
What better way to show that you are a hero in a game like Black Desert Online than to get one of the most famous symbols in fantasy fiction? Compared to the other Horoscopes, the Dragon sounds the most fancy, since it is the only one that is neither an animal nor an object. Given that the game is about martial arts and that the player is like a savior, assigning the Dragon Horoscope to a character can make it possible for a character “stat” to show that the player is the main character.
Not only that, but players on roleplay servers could very well include their character’s Dragon Horoscope in their backstories, which could lead to stories with prophecies and other similar ideas. In turn, Classes like the Drakania, Musa, Maehwa, Nova, and Valkyrie are perfect for this kind of Horoscope.
The Dragon: Try The Valkyrie
Enslar was the first Valkyrie and was surprisingly good at learning and mastering combat arts. She may be the most famous of all the Valkyries. Because of how brave she was, the local church set up the Holy College of Calpheon, which gives her the chance to train new Valkyries.
Their mission to protect Calpheon from different threats puts pressure on Valkyries to do well in combat, which shows in the way they play Black Desert Online. The fact that they have a noble title makes them a good match for the Dragon constellation, which is known for its attentiveness, exaltation, and prestige.
Black Desert Online came out in December 2014 for PC, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, iOS, and Android.
