MAJOR UPDATES- Summer Season Early Graduation

● The Summer Season Early Graduation has begun.


- Adventurers who wish to convert their character to a normal character after they have finished their journey in the season servers can accept the quest "[Season Server Graduation] At the Crossroad" from Leyla.

- Adventurers who are ready to convert their character to a normal character can ask Fughar for Leyla's location.

- Complete the quest "[Season Server Graduation] At the Crossroad" and receive "Honorable Adventurer's Certificate" as a reward.



- Interact with Fughar after using Honorable Adventurer's Certificate to complete the quest "[Season Server Graduation] Into the Big Wide World."

※ Only season characters in normal servers can use Honorable Adventurer's Certificate.

※ Please note that once Honorable Adventurer's Certificate is used, your season character will be converted to a normal character and you will no longer be able to receive season server benefits.

● Once you convert your season character to a normal character, you will receive "Gift Box Full of Memories" as a reward.



- Complete the quest "[Season Server Graduation] Into the Big Wide World" to receive the spring season completion rewards "Gift Box Full of Memories" and "[Season] Tuvala Conversion Stone Box.

- The 20% Discount Coupon you can obtain from the Gift Box Full of Memories will expire in 3 days.

* How to Convert a Tuvala Gear to a Normal Gear

- You need the Tuvala Conversion Stones, obtainable from Tuvala Conversion Stone Boxes, in order to convert a Tuvala gear to a normal gear.

- You can use only one Tuvala Conversion Stone for each gear part, so you must be careful to ensure that the stone is used for a gear at its highest enhancement level.

* How to Convert a Tuvala Gear to a Boss Gear

- You first need to use the Tuvala Conversion Stone and convert a Tuvala gear to a normal gear before you can convert it to a boss gear.

- After converitng the Tuvala gear to normal gear, find Fughar and accept either the quest "[Season] Even Sharper Weapon" or the quest "[Season] Even Sturdier Armor," depending on the boss gear you wish to obtain.

- However, you can only obtain a boss gear with a Tuvala gear of PRI (I), DUO (II), TRI (III), TET (IV), or PEN (V) enhancement level.

- You can do the quest "Fallen God's Armor" when you have converted your Tuvala Armor to Dim Tree Spirit's Armor.

● Added the quest "[Season] Fughar's Gift" through which you can obtain the following gifts prepared by Fughar for those adventurers who have finished the 40-day-long journey with him: Advice of Valks (+100) and Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon.

- You can exchange the Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon for PEN (V) Capotia Ring or Earring by using the Season Special Gift feature available from Fughar.

● For those adventurers who are still enjoying their journey in the season servers, a waiting period of August 5 (after maintenance)–August 26 (before maintenance) will be applied to delay their graduation.

- You will be able to continue enjoying the adventurers in the season servers if you do not receive any Season Server Graduation quests.

- You can still do Fughar's quests for a certain period of time even after the summer season has ended with the August 26th (Wednesday) maintenance.



MAJOR UPDATES- Pit of the Undying - Instant Entry

● Added a new Instant Entry function to the Pit of the Undying. Compete against First Crow's finest warriors in the endless battle for glory.

- While in Velia or Crow's Nest, you can instantly enter the arena using the "Pit of the Undying" at the ESC Menu after completing the quest "[Crow's Nest] Crow's Mercenary".

- If you haven't completed "[Crow's Nest] Crow's Mercenary", speak to NPC Lavala to enter the Pit of the Undying.

- You cannot create or leave parties at the Pit of the Undying.

- If you haven't used Instant Entry, you'll be moved to Crow's Nest upon leaving the Pit of the Undying. You can only enter the Pit of the Undying through dialogue if you have accepted the [Crow's Nest] Main Quest.

- You can only exchange Seals of the Undying with Patrigio directly at the Crow's Nest.

● Changed [Daily] Pit of the Undying quests to now only be accepted and completed by talking to the NPC Randy instead of Lavala.


Pit of the Undying is the first PvE content released in Black Desert that was well received by many of our adventurers thanks to its unique combat system. 
Yet, its remote location in the game made it difficult for some to visit and fully enjoy its contents. To fix this, a new Instant Entry has been added to the game so that adventurers can participate without having to travel. 
Once a day, adventurers can access the Pit of the Undying with ease and face different challenging monsters.

● Improved the Epheria Carrack so that you can open and close Cabin doors while sailing.

- However, you cannot open or close doors when the ship is auto-navigating, using sailing skills, or when the Ship Durability is below 50%.




  • ● Added a new quest that can be started from the Mysterious Picture obtained from the Suspicious Cargo Ship.
