Black Desert has been on my radar for about 2 years.
First of all if you buy in-game cash all you can buy are either more invetory slots, mounts cosmetics or boostes, no paw 2 win poorly made socks.
Secondly the game is 100% skill-based pvp with pve componentes.
Thirdy the game has literal infinite levels meaning you can go past level 100 (if you even manage to reach it).
Fourthy the game is 100% grinding for exp, you can reach level 50 within 2-3days but to reach lvl 51 and so on it takes you a whole hour of mob grinding to get 1% XP w/o boosters.
Fifth all characters can equip literal ANY gear you want meaning you can equip a fking full heavy armor set on something like a wizard or a archer, the only restriction are the weapons.
Lastly players can take over citys meaning you can control the whole map if you have a big enough guild to defend the citys and you get income from every tax made by the playes purchases on the city NPC´s.
There are more features but this is a quick scope.
