MAJOR UPDATES - Autumn Season Begins!    

● The Autumn Season has started.

- You will be able to level up your season character incredibly fast by using the benefits only season characters can have such as EXP increase buff without level restrictions, [Season] Leveling Aid Boxes, [Season] Secret Book of the Misty Breeze, etc.

● Added the Black Desert Season Challenges for Season Characters who will obtain special rewards by completing the given challenges.

- Black Desert Season Challenges can be accessed by either clicking the icon on the left of the Minimap or the banner to the left of the Equipment (I) window.

- Completing each challenge will reward your Season Character with an item to aid in your character's growth.

- Purchase the "Black Spirit Pass" from the Pearl Shop (F3) to gain additional special rewards

 

● Coco Leaf has been introduced with Black Desert Season Challenges.

- Collect Coco Leaves and find Patrigio in Velia to exchange them for a special item. Please note that there is a limited number of exchanges for certain exchange items.

● As the Autumn Season has started, Valencia 2 and Serendia 2 have been changed to season servers.

● Added Perilla's Star, a special alchemy stone that can be obtained through the Autumn Season.

- Although the place where the final star from Perilla to her beloved Fughar is located is still unknown, rumor says that a few clues have been found here and there.

● Added Rift's Echo, a [Party] Boss Summon Scroll only for Season Servers.

- Rift's Echo can be obtained by combining 5 Rift's Fragments. Rift's Fragments can be gathered from defeating monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia, and Drieghan, as well as from Savage Rifts.

- Rift's Echo can only be used in Season Servers, and using Rift's Echo will summon waves of Violent Boss monsters. Defeating the Violent Boss will grant items that will further aid your Season Character's growth.

- Rift's Echo consists of 3 total stages. Completing the Rift's Echo's 2nd stage has a low chance to summon special monsters from the rift, and defeating certain monsters within the given time limit will grant an item that will definitely help you in growing stronger. During the Rift's Echo's 3rd stage, a Most Violent Boss has a low chance to appear. These bosses are quite powerful, yet defeating them will grant better quality loot compared to other 3rd stage Rift's Echo bosses.

- Bosses that are drawn to the Rift's Echo are all Violent, so we recommend facing them with a party.

※ Rift's Fragments can only be obtained on Season Servers.
