One of the more unique combat features presented in Black Desert called "Rage", is automatically unlocked upon a player reaching level 35. You may notice a new crystal icon show up to the right of your health and mana bar. This is your Rage meter which progressively loads up 100% from normal combat (being hit and hitting opponents).
The Rage mechanic has 3 different combat boosting functions it can be deployed as:
Anger Absorption (Pressing Z)
- Will use the rage at any percent (1-100%) to provide a buff specific to your class type with a higher percent resulting in a longer duration.
Rage Transformation (Pressing X)
- Used only when grouping with other players, this function will transfer your rage to another friendly player under your targeting reticle to overcharge their rage. More information on this below.
- Skill Activation
- Certain skills actually utilize the rage mechanic to power up the output of the activated ability. Each class type has a skill that will also make use of the 200% overcharged version of rage giving it an extreme power up and usually a larger area of effect. (indicated by purple text in the tool tip saying "Wrath of The Black Spirits")
Normal operation of the rage mechanic falls within the parameters of 0 - 100% based off combat (hitting and being hit), and caps at 100% through solo combat. However should you or a friendly player decide to transfer rage (Pressing X) you can achieve an Overcharge effect of up to 200%.
This enables a person with 200% rage to activate a extremely powered up version of one of their skills. For example: The Meteor skill from the Wizard class, which when activated in this state will effect a much larger area and do significantly more damage, knock downs, and a longer duration of the ability. Upon completion of the skill the rage bar will drain back to 0%.
