MAJOR UPDATES - Balenos Main Questline Renewal

The Balenos main questline, which includes Velia, the hometown of many Adventurers, has undergone a renewal. We've added fully-voiced cutscenes, a graphical makeover for the major NPCs, reorganized the quest pathing, all for the sake of improving our focus on storytelling. We hope this renewal will help our new Adventurers better understand the world of Black Desert, and our veteran Adventurers enjoy a fresh, updated look to the Balenos main questline.
We believe updating existing content to be as important as adding new content, and we will strive to continue with improving the game.

● Renewed the Balenos Main Questline with fully-voiced cutscenes and a storyline that better fleshes out the NPCs and their relationships with each other.
- After the opening tutorial with Illezra in the desert ends, choose [Ancient Stone Chamber] instead of [Mountain of Eternal Winter] when prompted to begin this main questline.
※ Characters who chose to start in the [Mountain of Eternal Winter] must complete the "Everfrost main questline," "Sights of Mediah questline," "Succession/Awakening (Drakania only requires Succession) and skill preset questlines" to begin this questline.
- You can find the requirements of this questline under "[Balenos] Breaker of Chains" in Quests (O) - Main tab.
- Due to the renewal, certain Knowledge entries have been modified while others have been added for the Balenos territory.
- The Balenos main questline renewal consists of 3 branching stories.
- Completing the renewed Balenos main questline will increase your Amity with the relevant Quest NPCs.
- The renewed Balenos main questline has several Crossroad quests added which will determine the final outcome of the questline.



※ Adventurers who have already started the pre-renewal Balenos main questline cannot begin the renewed main questline.
※ Season characters who've completed "[Pet] Bareeds' Junaid" will need to complete "[Balenos] Dark Clouds Over Velia" to be able to select the simplified questline.
※ Lv. 1 characters who were already created before this update will need to forfeit all quests, excluding Family quests, in order to begin with the renewed Balenos main questline.

MAJOR UPDATES - Elvia Realm in Calpheon

Elvia Calpheon invades the live servers today.

There, you will be able to face the even more powerful Saunil, Rhutum, Giants, Hexe Skeletons, and Trolls.
Each of the old and familiar monster zones were given unique and interesting mechanic due to the "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" and the Rift of Despair at its center.
The mechanics that can increase your efficiency are listed below, so be sure to take note of them.

Elvia Calpheon will drop materials required to obtain the new "Godr-Ayed" weapons and their enhancement materials. It also drops new loot items required to upgrade alchemy stones as well. We hope this will become a new challenge that our Adventurers will eagerly charge in to take on.

● Hadum, the God of Despair, who spread her corruption upon Serendia, has raised the cursed Black Sun bursting with destructive energies over the skies of Calpheon.
- With Calpheon corrupted by the Elvia Realm, its ecology has begun to distort.
- Saunil Camp, Rhutum Outstation, Gehaku Plain, Hexe Sanctuary, and Quint Hill have fallen to the corruption, as Hadum-infested monsters now appear in these zones.
- During combat, the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon can occur in Elvia Calpheon, which will alter the weather and affect which Shadow of Nightmares monster will spawn.
- You can loot materials for exchanging/enhancing the Godr-Ayed weapon and upgrading alchemy stones in Elvia Calpheon.
- You can loot the "Ancient Spirit Light" item from monsters, and upon purifying Rifts of Despair with it will grant you a powerful buff.

The Elvia Distortion Phenomenon
● "Rifts of Despair" have begun to tear open throughout Elvia Calpheon, causing occurrences of the so-called "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" wherever they appear.
● Defeating monsters near a "Rift of Despair" has a low chance to cause the "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" to occur.
● The "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" will spawn a powerful boss monster and change the weather.
- If lightning begins to strike, Gigagord will appear with its minions.
- If icy winds begin to blow, a Cyclops boss monster will appear.
- If a meteor falls from the sky, an Ogre boss monster will appear.

▲ The Elvia Distortion Phenomenon occurs near a Rift of Despair which can be found all over Elvia Calpheon.


▲ The weather changing due to the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon


▲ Gigagord, Ogre, and Cyclops

- Rhutum Outstation: Glorious Rhutums, Rhutum Tower, Grand Rhutum Chief
- Primal Giant Post: Giant Fighter, Gehaku
- Hexe Sanctuary: Green Orc Skeleton Warrior, Skeleton Witmirth, Hexe Marie
- Quint Hill: Ancient Troll
● Defeat the bosses of the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon to receive the "Corrupting Darkness" buff and "Remnants of Darkness" debuff.
- Corrupting Darkness: Significantly increases damage dealt to Elvia Calpheon monsters (for 5 minutes)
- Remnants of Darkness: Cannot obtain the Corrupting Darkness buff with this debuff (lasts for 30 minutes)
● Added four entries to the "Elvia's Shadow" Ecology Knowledge for Elvia Calpheon.
- Defeat the following Shadows of Nightmares from the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon to obtain Ecology Knowledge entries.
- Kitskala, Calestra, Charpene, Gigagord
Ancient Spirit Light
● Defeating monsters in Elvia Calpheon has a low chance to drop the "Ancient Spirit Light" item, which can be used to purify Rifts of Despair.
- Using the Ancient Spirit Light near a Rift of Despair will grant the "Blessing of the Ancient Spirits" buff, which greatly increases your damage for 5 minutes.
※ Blessing of the Ancient Spirits: Significantly increases damage dealt to Elvia Calpheon monsters during the buff duration
- The Ancient Spirit Light item will last for 6 hours once looted and will disappear once the duration is over.
- Using the Ancient Spirit Light without a Rift of Despair nearby will not grant any buff.
- The Corrupting Darkness buff cannot stack with the Blessing of the Ancient Spirits.

MAJOR UPDATES - Godr-Ayed Weapons / Alchemy Stone Upgrade

The "Godr-Ayed Weapons" were added with the introduction of Calpheon Elvia. Godr-Ayed weapons are a different version of the pre-existing Blackstar weapons designed to break down the progression of the TET (IV) to PEN (V) Blackstar journey into smaller steps so that Adventurers can continue to improve.

Godr-Ayed weapons can be obtained by converting TET (IV) Blackstar weapons. However, in order to convert your Blackstar weapon, you must have the "Scorching Sun Crystal," which is dropped as loot in Calpheon Elvia.

Godr-Ayed weapons can be enhanced 5 levels, each level will improve its stats. The "Scorching Sun Gemstone" is required to attempt to enhance the weapon. The gemstone can be made with the "Scorching Sun Shard" that drops as loot in Calpheon Elvia.

As the enhancement levels were divided into 5 levels, each attempt will be easier to accomplish than the PEN (V) Blackstar attempt. However, the amount of Silver required to make it into PEN (V) will be similar to attaining a PEN (V) Blackstar.
※ We have increased the maximum price of the PEN (V) Blackstar weapons on the Central Market in order to maintain its value.

We have received so much feedback from our Adventurers after the Dev Commentary we posted on May 26. There was an especially high interest about the Godr-Ayed weapons. So, we would like to use this opportunity to thank everyone that took the time to give us feedback.

As PEN (V) Blackstar Weapons are currently one of the highest-tier items in Black Desert, we do not have any plans to introduce a "guaranteed upgrade" path for them. For Adventurers who've already faced great difficulty in obtaining the PEN (V) Blackstar Weapons, we believe Godr-Ayed is the "bare minimum mechanism" for them.

We will strive to contemplate on the future direction of Black Desert to become the best it can be.

● Added Godr-Ayed main weapons and awakening weapons.
- You can obtain Godr-Ayed weapons by converting a TET (IV) Blackstar weapon.
- Godr-Ayed weapons can be registered and purchased at each of its enhancement levels on the Central Market.
- Godr-Ayed weapons have five enhancement levels. It starts from +0 and go up to PEN (V). (+0 → PRI (I) → DUO (II) → TRI (III) → TET (IV) → PEN (V) )
※ Godr-Ayed weapons do not drop an enhancement level when failing PRI (I) → DUO (II) enhancement attempts.
- The materials required to convert and enhance Godr-Ayed weapons drop as loot in Elvia Calpheon.



● Added the means to convert PEN (V) Blackstar weapons and PEN (V) Godr-Ayed weapons.
- You can convert PEN (V) Blackstar weapons into PEN (V) Godr-Ayed weapons, and vice versa, through Grána's Eldest Spirit Merindora.
- You will need Scorching Sun Crystal x1 and a PEN (V) Blackstar weapon or a PEN (V) Godr-Ayed weapon for the conversion.
※ You will need to hand over a PEN (V) Blackstar weapon and a Scorching Sun Crystal x1 to convert into a PEN (V) Godr-Ayed weapon.
※ You will need to hand over a PEN (V) Godr-Ayed weapon and a Scorching Sun Crystal x1 to convert into a PEN (V) Blackstar weapon..
※ Reformed awakening weapons will retain their reformed status after the conversion.
※ Weapons branded with your Family name will retain the branded status after the conversion.

Godr-Ayed Weapon Conversion
● Added the "[Godr-Ayed Weapon] Merindora's Calling" quest where you can convert TET (IV) Blackstar main weapons and awakening weapons into Godr-Ayed weapons.
- You can accept this quest from the Black Spirit (/) by having a TET (IV) Blackstar main weapons and awakening weapons in your Inventory.
- You can then proceed with the quest via Merindora, the Eldest Spirit in the capital city of Grána. You will need to hand over "Scorching Sun Crystal" and a TET (IV) Blackstar weapon to get a sealed Godr-Ayed weapon.
※ "Scorching Sun Crystals" can be made by gathering "Scorching Sun Shards" that drop in Elvia Calpheon as loot.
"* Item Copy and branding will be removed from the Blackstar weapon used to convert to a Godr-Ayed weapon.
* Additionally, Blackstar weapons copied via Item Copy system cannot be used in the quest to convert into Godr-Ayed weapons."
Godr-Ayed Weapon Enhancement
● Added "Scorching Sun Gemstones" that are used to enhance Godr-Ayed weapons.
- Scorching Sun Gemstones can be made by Heating (L) "Scorching Sun Shards" (which drops as loot in Elvia Calpheon) with "Flawless Magical Black Stones."

In today’s update, we have adjusted Shai’s Monster DP Reduction. Generally, Shai is extremely efficient at defeating monsters with high DP due to dealing a large number of attacks that apply DP Reduction, which is also a distinct feature of the Florang. We wanted to keep this feature, however, while preparing updates for high-end monster zones like the Crypt of Resting Thoughts, Gyfin Rhasia Temple (Underground), Calpheon Elvia Realm and others, we felt it’d be difficult to maintain proper game balance with the status quo, as Monster DP Reduction showing an excessively high efficiency in the high-end monster zones played a big part in this decision. Still, after today's update, your Shai with a decent gear score will still be able tackle these top-tier monster zones efficiently.

In today’s update, “Monster DP -10%” was changed to “All DP -35” for Shai’s Hop-Three, Kwik-Two, and Twirl-Three. Additionally, Misty Haze’s cooldown has been adjusted from 30 sec to 3 min. (We adjusted the cooldown time and kept DP reduction to retain Misty Haze’s importance in party zones and other specific situations.)

Thus, we changed Florin's Leaf to be restored by various skills so that you could use Outta My Way! to maintain the AP increase buff as long as possible. We’ve added “Evasion Rate -9%” to One-Two-Three and “All Accuracy Rate +6%” to Try This! due to the DP Reduction adjustment. Regarding Misty Haze, we added Super Armor to be applied from the beginning motion as the cooldown change has made it more important when deciding on how and when to use the skill. However, after the Global Lab update, many of our Shai Adventurers sent us feedback in regard to how the Misty Haze cooldown change removed the class's unique trait of being highly valued in a party. While the Shai won't be able to apply the same amount of DP Reduction as before, we will strive to retain her class identity in playing an important role in party monster zones.

Some of you may feel disappointed with the recent changes. We wished to maintain as much as we could, but we came to this conclusion that adjustment was needed for the sake of new and future high-end monster zones planned for released. However, the main point of this adjustment is not to reduce Shai’s abilities but to adjust her extremely high efficiency within certain monster zones. We will keep checking and make further adjustments as necessary.
