The Tamer of Black Desert Online, as the name suggests, has a fighting style revolving around a creature that accompanies them. However, the Tamer is also perfectly capable when it comes to fending for themselves in a melee fight.

The Tamer has a short blade that comes with a sheath, the latter allowing them to summon and control their creature. Combat-wise, the Tamer will easily chain multiple abilities, at a rather fast pace. Indeed, many of their skills allow for lengthy combos, without much restrictions. However, the defensive capabilities of the Tamer are limited, something that can be severely handicapping should their creature be defeated.

It common to see here and there that this class is tamed easily (note the irony). However, it is good to know why: The Tamer has a creature that can be summoned at will from level 20. As such, by definition, a part of the gameplay will be played automatically by default (the creature being rather autonomous).

Moreover, the skills of the Tamer combine quite easily, with some going as far as saying that with this class, one can chain combos by pressing random keys. However, with enough experience, you will begin to truly understand the principles of this class and want to choose your patterns, different combos being more appropriate for different situation.
