NEW & IMPROVEMENTS  

CONTENTS  

● The Adventurer's Board is now open! It is the space where adventurers chosen as Supporters in the [RecruitingBlack Desert Supporters!] event can share their vast knowledge on all aspects of the Black Desert.

- You can find Adventurer's Board under the Community tab of the new ESC Menu.

- Adventurer's Board will be marked with an icon saying "NEW."

If you have any questions while exploring the world of Black Desert or want any tips on topics such as how to grow your character, be sure to check out Adventurer's Board!  
● Added a new “Marni” server where you can enjoy the Red Battlefield.
- Go to the ESC menu → Red Battlefield to be moved to the Red Battlefield on the Marni server. The Marni server is unaffected by the server change wait time.
- There will be a total of 10 open battlefields in the Marni server Red Battlefield, and the server names displayed in the Red Battlefield window were changed to the battlefield names.
- You will now be able to participate in the Red Battlefield while in a current Node/Conquest War server.
- Changed the Limited Red Battlefield to no longer allow further participants.
- If there are less than 2 people remaining since the start of the Red Battlefield, the Red Battlefield will end after 1 minute has passed and all characters present will be returned to their original location.
- The Red Battlefield rewards will be obtainable once the Red Battlefield finishes successfully.
While the previous Red Battlefield was set up in a way that assigned battlefields to each server, today’s update now changes this into a single, combined form. As a result, you will now be able to enter the Red Battlefield of your choosing without having to switch servers. Thanks to this new format, the Red Battlefield will now be able to have new maps. There’s probably many of you who feel the current map is boring now, so we will do our best to introduce new maps as quickly as possible for you to enjoy.

ALL CLASSES

We've carried out improvements on all our classes. It's a special occasion for us as the update is based on the feedback of Korean Adventurers who participated in FGT held in Korea and we'd like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to all those who truly cared for Black Desert to have suggested their point of view during the event. Your opinion is truly valuable to us. Many of the ideas were deliberated in-depth and extensively among the staff in our Black Desert Studio conference to ensure that the following changes would contribute to the overall balance of the game.

 

Today's updates focused on each class' improvements especially with the performance of certain skills. In order to compensate for the decreasing DP efficiency since the release of Succession, we've revised the Bonus Damage Reduction per Displayed DP to have a larger impact on the outcome. However, the benefits of the increase in Bonus Damage Reduction is not exclusive to the higher gear levels as the max value has increased but it can also be incrementally felt from the lower gear levels as well (Difficulty of some monster zones may drop too sharply so this is subject to adjustments). Additional Attack per Displayed AP also has been raised slightly to adjust to the new rise in defense efficiency. Furthermore, Basic Attack Power of Summons has been all set to 100 since the Summoner's Bonus Attack did not apply to their damage, making them relatively weaker compared to the character as the game progressed. Lastly, to players who are interested in news regarding Awakening damage, we plan to closely observe the new increases in the defense efficiency and further adjust the Awakening skill damage based on the collected data after the update. There are still many suggestions that we haven't entirely worked out yet, but we plan to present them through the Black Desert Global Lab as soon as development is complete.
