Arsha’s Dragon Trials

Events Jul 29, 2022, 21:00 (UTC+8)

To celebrate Drakania’s Awakening, Black Desert’s official content creator, Draqona is putting on a tournament for all Drakania’s out there!


On August 6, Drakania’s will be able to strut their stuff on the battlefield in a 2v2 Awakening Drakania showdown. Those who enter the tournament will obviously take away prizes, but if you're much more comfortable watching instead of participating, there will also be rewards given to the viewers of the tournament!

Of course, Arsha would not be happy with a Dragon trial without Dragons, so each team must include at least one Awakening Drakania.

Burn your fears, and take flight Drakania!

For those wishing to be a part of the action, here is a summary on how to participate

- Additional rules may be set by the host of the tournament, Draqona. 

* In order to use an Awakening Trial Drakania, you must create a Drakania after the July 27 maintenance. Trial Drakania’s made before this date cannot be used.

* If you currently have no slots available for a new Trial Character, you will need to delete an existing Trial Character and make a new one. There is a short wait time to delete these characters, so those intended to participate should be prepared to create an Awakening Drakania in advance.
