This is The MMORPG, Black Desert.
I’m GM_Olvia, and I’m back with more good news!
The Kzarka update that everyone has been waiting for was added on 2/22!
You probably heard about Kzarka, The Lord of Corruption, if you carried out the main quests from the Black Spirit.
If you defeat Kzarka, you can acquire a Kzarka weapon, which are the strongest weapons that exist in the game.
You’ll learn about Kzarka and how to get your hands on a Kzarka Weapon in this GM Note.
▼ The first World Boss ever - Kzarka
■ Let’s Defeat Kzarka!
To defeat Kzarka, you’ll need strong armor, plenty of HP potions, and maybe some food buffs to help you survive against his deadly attacks. Last but not least, you’ll need to work together with friends in a party to bring him down.
You’ll definitely know when Kzarka appears as his deafening roar rips through the air along with a system alert message. This boss monster is a formidable opponent.
He appears at the innermost plaza of the Serendia Shrine.
It might be a good idea to get there before Kzarka appears or wait for him on a less crowded server.
You can gain Knowledge about Kzarka by increasing amity with Hakkon, the Node Manager of the Serendia Shrine. Once you’ve gained the knowledge, you’ll be able to see Kzarka’s HP.
If you plan to defeat Kzarka often, you should get the knowledge beforehand since Kzarka uses various skill patterns depending on his HP status.
■ Kzarka Weapon
The chance of acquiring a Kzarka Weapon is what makes Kzarka so popular.
Many adventurers hunt Kzarka to get their hands on the most powerful weapon available.
Kzarka Weapons have a high base AP, and 2 sockets.
Casting Speed and Attack Speed also goes up by +3 so it’s useful for all classes.
◈ Kzarka Drop Item
Kzarka’s Sealed Weapon Box, Liverto Weapon Bundle, Mark of Shadow, Shrine Guardian Token, Black Stone(Weapon), Black Stone(Armor), Silver Coins, etc.
■The core strategy to defeating Kzarka are the red circles and columns!
When you’re fighting Kzarka, you’ll see some red circles on the ground. These are marked areas where Kzarka’s skills will reach. If you can avoid these red circles, you’re already halfway to defeating Kzarka. Let’s learn more about Kzarka’s skills!
Kzarka will direct this skill towards one of the 4 columns located around him. You can avoid it by looking at the attack area marked in red before Kzarka uses the skill. It also shows you the area you should be avoiding in red so it’s not a difficult skill to avoid.
● Meteor Shower
Compared to other skills, Meteor Shower isn’t as powerful but it can be deadly to adventurers with low DP and HP. The target area is marked in multiple red circles around Kzarka, and you can avoid the attack by timing your dodges.
● Black Fog
The entire plaza will be marked in red when Kzarka uses this skill. This is a very powerful attack that can kill you instantly so caution is recommended. You can avoid it by standing behind the 4 columns located around Kzarka.
At 75% HP Kzarka uses Breath, at 50% Meteor Shower and Black Fog, at 25% Meteor Shower and Breath. At 10% Kzarka uses a mass sequence of attacks from Meteor Shower - Black Fog - then Meteor Shower again. So depending on Kzarka’s HP status, he uses a different combination of his skills.
Kzarka has very high HP and AP so you may want to think twice before challenging him alone relying on HP potions. Avoid catching Kzarka’s attention during the night when monsters are stronger. Even if you think you’ve prepared yourself and have taken some food buffs, Kzarka is extremely strong at night.
We hope that this note has given you some useful tips about Kzarka, the Lord of Corruption,
We’ll be back with more fun and useful information in the future.
