Daisy here! 


The 3rd Season of Black Desert is here! 

That is, the W-I-N-T-E-R Season! 

Looking forward to adventuring with all of you in the Winter Season, safe from the chilling winter cold! 

Just thinking about it makes me jump for joy. 


Then, shall we get started? Here’s a taste of the Winter Season!


How do I make a Season character? 

You must have a free character slot before you can create a Season Character.



Enter the character creation window as you would create a normal character. 

Do you see the “Create Season Character” button beneath your character’s name? 

Click this button to create your very own Season character! 

Only one Season Character may be created per family. 


You must delete any pre-existing Season Character if you wish to create a new Season Character. 


Season Server Benefits


After maintenance concludes on December 22, 2020 (Tues), a total of two Season Servers will be open.


Types of Winter Season Servers 

OneSeason Server

The server where you can level with veterans of previous seasons

who will be happy to answer your questions

and adventure together with you.


TwoSeason Server Arsha

A season server where PvP is always available,

thus increasing the risk but with greater item drop rates!

season server of high risks, but high returns.

Only “Season Characters” may enter a Season Server.

Season Characters have access to both Season Servers and normal servers.

Just like it was during the Summer Season, adventurers will be able to experience the thrills of starting in a “new server” once again.

While Season Servers may offer the same EXP boost as Olvia servers,

there is no max level limitation on the Season Servers, thus allowing for faster leveling.



Leveling aid boxes return for the Winter Season! 

Adventurers will begin receiving these boxes from Level 10! 


Upon opening the box, adventurers will gain a Combat EXP +100% buff for 24 hours,

along with a variety of enhancement materials and an inventory slot expansion coupon!


Keep leveling and you will continue to be showered with rewards.

Rumor has it that the Level 60 and 61 aid boxes will grant even greater rewards in the Winter Season!

I’m already so excited to start leveling faster!



Chief Manager Fughar of the Crow Merchants Guild will give you a “[Season] Secret Book of the Misty Breeze” as a reward every time you complete one of the Main Questlines in BalernosSerendiaCalpheon, Media, Valencia, Grána, and Duvencrune.

Adventurers can learn stronger skills by gaining more Skill EXP through the “[Season] Secret Book of the Misty Breeze”!!




Season characters can receive special Season Quests from Fughar available only once per family. 

Adventurers will be awarded Advice of Valks through these quests, 

How many pieces of gear can Black Desert characters equip? Minus accessories! Yes, that’s right. 

Helmet, armor, gloves, shoes, main weapon, sub-weapon, and awakening weapon makes it a total of seven, right? 



Fughar will give you quests to equip a TRI (III) or TET (IV) piece of Tuvala gear for each of those seven gear slots. 

What happens when you equip the appropriate gear and complete each quest? You will obtain an Advice of Valks! 


Advice of Valks +40 x7 when equipping seven TRI (III) Tuvala gear (excluding accessories), 

Advice of Valks +60 x7 when equipping seven TET (IV) Tuval gear (excluding accessories)! 


Winter Season and the Season Pass

Just like during the Summer and Autumn Seasons, the Season Pass will serve as your faithful adventure companion for the Winter Season.


Compared to previous seasons, the Winter Season Pass adds a whopping 10 more objectives to challenge.

Afraid of the increased number of tasks?

No worries!! The rewards you can get have greatly increased as well!!!


I’ve personally brought one of the new rewards you can obtain from the Winter Season Pass-

it's the Old Moon Costume Box!


Completing certain objectives in the Winter Season Pass will allow you to choose from one of 3 Old Moon Costume Box rewards,

Not only can you customize their beautiful appearance,

but they’re amazing costumes you can also use Heating via Processing (L) on to obtain one of the following crystals to empower other gear with!



Which costume will you choose? I can’t make up my mind! 


Also, the “Coco Leaf” was found all over the Autumn Season,
the “Morning Frostflower” blooms during the Winter Season.
Adventurers can collect these Morning Frostflowers from the Season Pass and Season Leveling Aid Box rewards

and exchange them for a variety of items.


I took a slight peak at the items you can exchange the Morning Frostflowers for and...

Manos accessories, a Tier 8 horse, etc... so many things I want!


The Winter Season can’t come soon enough!!


Season-Specific Gear – Naru & Tuvala!

Winter Season adventurers will also utilize the Season Character-specific “Tuvala gear” just like they did in the Summer and Autumn Seasons. 


The Naru gear that made its first appearance 

during the Autumn Season is slightly weaker than Tuvala gear, 

but serves as new gear for adventurers in the beginning zones from Balenos to Mediah. 

Naru gear can be enhanced with the “Beginner Black Stone” at a higher success rate compared to enhancing Tuvala gear. 


Enhanced the Naru gear to its highest potential with the Beginner Black Stones? 

Then run on over to  Fughar! 

Show him a piece of Naru gear enhanced to PEN (V) and he will upgrade it to a Tuvala piece at PRI (I) enhancement level of the corresponding gear slot. 


Please note that you can also acquire Naru gear and Beginner Black Stones on the normal servers as well! 


Winter Season Graduation


Tuvala Gear Conversion 

Tuvala Conversion Stones will be rewarded upon graduating from the Season Server, which you can use to convert Season Tuvala gear into normal Tuvala gear.  

You’ll receive a total of 13 Tuvala Conversion stones corresponding to the number of gear slots (armor, weapons, necklace, belt, 2 earrings, and 2 rings). 

Each stone will convert only one piece of Tuvala gear, 

so please be careful if you have more than one piece of Tuvala gear for each gear slot! 

Crystals and family name engraved on PEN (V) gear will remain. 

Also, converted Tuvala gear will become bound to your Family! 



Boss Gear Conversion 


Adventurers will receive one Boss Gear Exchange Coupon per Family upon graduating from the Season Server, which you can use to exchange one normal Tuvala gear into a Boss gear. 

It’d be best to exchange it for the slot you absolutely need it for, yes? 

You can only use the Boss Gear Exchange Coupon for Tuvala gear of PRI (I) to PEN (V) enhancement levels, so don’t miss out on this opportunity! 

You can exchange your Tuvala gear with the coupon for the following Boss gear. 

Tuvala Gear 

Boss Gear 

Tuvala Armor 

Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor 

Tuvala Shoes 

Muskan’s Shoes 

Tuvala Gloves 

Bheg’s Gloves 

Tuvala Helmet 

Giath’s Helmet 

Tuvala Main Weapon 

Kzarka Main Weapon 

Tuvala Sub-weapon 

Kutum Sub-weapon 

Tuvala Awakening Weapon 

Dandelion Awakening Weapon 


Exchanging the Tuvala gear for the Boss Gear will decrease the Enhancement Level by one level.

For example, let’s take a look at converting Tuvala Shoes into Muskan’s Shoes:


Tuvala Gear 

Boss Gear 

PRI (I) Tuvala Shoes 

+15 Muskan’s Shoes 

DUO (II) Tuvala Shoes 

PRI (I) Muskan’s Shoes 

TRI (III) Tuvala Shoes 

DUO (II) Muskan’s Shoes 

TET (IV) Tuvala Shoes 

TRI (III) Muskan’s Shoes 

PEN (V) Tuvala Shoes 

TET (IV) Muskan’s Shoes 

Boss gear obtained through the exchange coupon will be bound to your family. 

It can be enhanced (including Caphras enhancement) and even used to craft the Fallen God armor, but it cannot be registered on the Central Market.! 



Graduation Gift Box

The commemorative gift box for adventurers who graduated from the Summer and Autumn Seasons returns for the Winter Season.


The Summer Season awarded PEN (V) Capotia accessories,

while the Autumn Season awarded Perilla’s Star,


I wonder what the Winter Season will offer?

We ask for your patience, at it shall all be revealed at a later date! o(*^@^*)o


Until then,


Daisy out!
