MAJOR UPDATES - Stormbringer Karanda

● Fora long time, Calpheon's Delphe Knights have been battling the harpies on the Karanda Ridge to take Balenos Mountains for Calpheonian. Delphe Knights were on the verge of reclaiming the ridge but the harpies made a last ditch attempt to fight back by electing a new harpy queen of unprecedented strength. The newly crowned queen, using her fierce winds and piercing feather attacks, almost annihilated the Delphe Knights with her devastating powers. Delphe Knight's Commander-in-Chief Brego Williar has dubbed the new queen as "Stormbringer Karanda" and elevated alert levels along the ridge's frontline.

- Stormbringer Karanda can rain a series of piercing feather attacks and push back adventurers with powerful wind.

- Stormbringer Karanda can also summon more harpies to her side and attack adventurers.

 

▲ Stormbringer Karanda (Left) / Enhanced Feather Attacks (Right)

 

▲ Attacks that summon powerful gusts of wind from the rear. (Left)

Boss patterns that can afflict devastating random damages by summoning countless harpies. (Right)

 

▲ Boss pattern that pushes back anything within the vicinity of Karanda along with a sweeping attack on the outerline. (Left)

Calls upon a powerful storm using the power of harpies. (Right)

 

● Heart of Karanda bearing the power of the storm has appeared.

- There is a certain chance to obtain Heart of Karanda when defeating Stormbringer Karanda. 

- Awakening weapons made from Heart of Karanda have been named "Storm Devoured". 

- Storm Devoured awakening weapons have one crystal slot and Critical Hit Damage +3% effect.

"Stormbringer Karanda", first shown in Black Desert Global Labs, has been updated into the live servers. Nightmarish/Bloodstorm bosses had their stunningly fieresome looks and powerful attacks but Stormbringer Karanda is a slightly different in that it is based off original Karanda's patterns. So if you're familiar with the original Karanda, it should be relatively easier to deal with than Bloodstorm Nouver. But to make things more interesting, we've added the rare loot "Heart of Karanda" so we hope adventurers have a lot of fun!
