NEW & IMPROVEMENTS

CONTENTS 

Due to a growing number of adventurers looking for ship materials, the Crow Merchants Guild has divided Sea Trade Goods and Ship Upgrade materials.
- However, certain Ship Upgrade materials that could be exchanged with existing Sea Trade Goods will remain unaffected. 
 
 
 
- Added the ability refresh Ship Material Exchange for obtainable Ship Upgrade materials to Barter Refresh.    
 
 
 

- When using Ship Material Exchange, Ship Upgrade materials can definitely be bartered. 

- You can also Ship Material Exchange to obtain materials to enhance ships and for Great Ocean treasures. 

- You can refresh Ship Material Exchange for a maximum of 2 times per day. 

- When refreshing Ship Material Exchange, for a low chance you can discover Bartering Information on items from all islands which you can exchange for Crow Coins. You can exchange Crow Coins for all [Level 2] ~ [Level 5] Sea Trade Goods.

When using Material Barter, the Accumulated Number of Exchanges will be greatly reduced when obtaining the following Carrack upgrade materials.

To lower the difficulty for starting the Great Expedition content, we created the path of building Bartali Sailboats to Epheria Carracks, and have added several support systems to aid in their growth. And yet, we know that there are many adventurers who thirst for more things to do in the whole process early on. Thus, after thinking long and hard about this matter, we decided to add the new level of "Material Bartering" to the entire process. 

Bartering will now be divided into Sea Trade Good Exchange and Ship Material Exchange, and in doing so, we also had to change the entire Bartering Refresh method. Through Ship Material Exchange, you can acquire a variety of upgrade materials for all ships including the Epheria Caravel to the Epheria Carrack, as well as blue-grade Epheria Carrack equipment. For adventurers who no longer need to exchange for materials, we've also added a new bartering item "Golden Plate" that they can try their luck at obtaining. 

Bartering is, when compared to the standard of things that tend to wear out players from enjoying Black Desert content, one of the areas adventurers can potentially acquire a high level of profits, and hence a large number of adventurers are sailing the high seas on their respective carracks. We too are keeping a close eye on things, especially to stamp out any chance of irregular trade that might occur. From this view, the change to refresh we applied in our last Black Desert Global Labs was intended to narrow the gap between hardcore and casual players, yet one negative consequence was drastically reducing the profits obtainable based on time invested, hence we ended up readjusting that change. On one hand, especially to return to the initial intention, we greatly reduced the amount of accumulated bartering counts that was required for the emergence of exchangeable Carrack materials, which was equally being applied to material bartering, thereby hastening the amount time necessary for seafaring adventurers with caravels and frigates to gain access to carracks.

 

Added the Rent Horse function to the Stable. 

- The Rent Horse function allows certain adventurers to either rent out their own horses or rent others' horses. 

- The renter will pay a contract fee of 100,000 silver to rent a horse for 7 days, while the owner can use Force Retrieve to reclaim their horse. (However, they can only do so if the horse is in the Stable or the renter is offline.

- Rented horses will receive the effects of the gear they're equipped with; however, you cannot unequip gear on rented horses

- You can rent horse breeds up to Tier 8. 

Added the following Gathering items.

For adventurers who have yet to begin the journey, yet may feel discouraged to start, we've decided to compile all Adventure Log quests under one category to help such adventurers and ease their first steps. We will continue in our efforts to provide a more enjoyable and convenient experience especially for adventurers beginning a new adventure.
