NEW & IMPROVEMENTS

CONTENTS

● Fixed the issue with the horizontal scroll when playing a composition in the Compose window.

 

ITEM

● Doubled the chance of obtaining Mass of Pure Magic at the Crypt of Resting Thoughts node.

- The chance of obtaining Mass of Pure Magic at the Crypt of Resting Thoughts node is now the same as that of obtaining it at the Star's End node.

● Mass of Pure Magic has been discovered at the Mountain of Division node.

- Added Mass of Pure Magic to the Excavation node. 

- The work speed at this node is fast but there is less chance of obtaining Mass of Pure Magic. However, ratio of obtained Mass of Pure Magic amount by time is similar to that of Star's End – Excavation node.

● You can now use manufacture on La Orzeca Armor with sockets. 

- However, you won't be able to use manufacture it if there's any crystals equipped to it, so you will need to extract the crystal(s) first before crafting. 

● Using another Golden Pig's Blessing while one is active will now remove the current effect and apply the last Golden Pig's Blessing only.       

 


MONSTER

● Guild Boss Ferrid has absorbed the heat of the hottest lava in Omar Lava Cave and become even more ferocious and powerful.

- Ferrid's attacks, which contain the full might of its power, shake the cave and stimulate the unstable lava, causing a destructive explosion.

- When this overflowed lava creates a swamp, Ferrid's attacks will cause explosions and continuously produce Ferrid Talis.

- Ferrid Tali is very dangerous as it approaches nearby adventurers and spits out its lava.

- There's a low chance Ferrid Tuny will appear in the Lava Swamp.

- When Ferrid Tuny reaches Ferrid, it will pass on its energy of lava to the Ferrid, making it more powerful.

- When the Grapple or the CC status effect is applied to Ferrid Tuny, it will immediately vanish, but if it's near Ferrid at this point, it will still be able to pass on its lava energy to the Ferrid.

- As Guild Boss Ferrid has become more powerful, the chance of obtaining Energy of All Creations has increased as well as the drop rate of other loots.

 


MOUNT

● Added a new function that can transport mounts to where the adventurer currently located.

- You can transport mounts held in another Wharf/Stable to the current Wharf/Stable. Guild mounts are excluded from this function.

- Transporting a mount costs 1 million silver and will take 10 minutes to complete.

- Transporting mounts with trade or barter goods in their inventory have a certain chance to lose all those items, so please take note.

- Large ships cannot be transported to areas they cannot traverse to (i.e. rivers).

To bring a mount in a different region, you would previously have to log onto a different character located close to where that mount was stabled to send them to your current character. We've created this function to address the incovenience of the existing method of transporting mounts.

After the introduction of the Naval Fame system, many adventurers found themselves unable to retrieve their ships from certain wharfs due to the drop in their Naval Fame. Now, with this function, adventurers with ""Pirate"" Naval Fame can still transport their mounts stored in other locations to the Kuit Islands.

● Optimizedeffects of Mythical Arduanatt.

 


NPC, BACKGROUND, SOUND

● Fixed the issues with topography of Scarlet Sand Chamber where World Boss Kutum appears.

● Changed placement of moving Calpheon Protesters so that they are not too close to the residence.

● Changed placement of Kansha in Pit of Undying so that he doesn't obstruct matches.

● Fixed the issue where World Map (M) would abnormally display topography.

● Fixed the issue where vegetation would be placed abnormally in North Kaia Mountain and Olun's Valley.

● Winter is here in Black Desert, along with heavy snowfall and beautiful auroras.

Heavy snowfall and magical auroras have come to Black Desert.

We wish you a happyalbeit coldwinter season in Black Desert.

 


QUEST & KNOWLEDGE

● Added Kamasylvia Main Quest completion in the quest acceptance description for Suggested Quest '[Lv. 58] Call of the Ocean: Journey to the Deep Sea' in Quest List (O). 

● Changed NPC and monster spawn location for Valkyrie Succession Quest so that it is more convenient to complete. 

● Added description in ‘[Crow Shop] Combat/Skill EXP Exchange Coupon’ quest summary and dialogue notifying that the expiration date is applied immediately upon receiving the Exchange Coupon.             

 


UI

● Reworked Skill Add-on window. 

● Fixed the issue where effects would remain on screen when opening inventory after closing Mount Information window by pressing ESC.

● [Ninja] Fixed graphical issues with wearing the Crimson Sable outfit.

● Fixed the issue where opening Marni's Research Box obtained by defeating Valencia Guard Captain would give Marni's Stone from another hunting ground. 

● Fixed the issue with Morning Star skill Enable/Disable button would be displayed abnormally after using Fairy Appearance Coupon. 

● Fixed the issue with the residence's function appearing abnormally in World Map (M) Residence UI from time to time.

● Fixed the issue with abnormal routes when auto-navigating to Southern Guard Camp Stable Keeper.

● Fixed the issue where Finding NPC function in Serendia Shrine to locate the nearest General Goods Vendor would guide the player to an incorrect location.

● Fixed the issue where the NPC for quest progression would not appear when enabling Hide NPC and proceeding with "Mysterious Painting 1: Restored Drawing" quest.
