【 NEW & IMPROVEMENTS 】

  • ● Guild Officers can now use guild skills.

- Command to Gather can still only be used by the Guild Leader

[ Developer’s Comment ]

We have been receiving a lot of diverse feedback from our Adventurers since the Heidel Ball. There were suggestions that we hadn’t considered before and some were so important that we had to rearrange our schedule’s work priority. In order to show our appreciation, we decided to quickly review the feedbacks and tried to apply changes and fixes to every weekly maintenance. After this week’s update, guild officers will be able to use guild skills as well. We wanted to add a new guild position, but we realized this would take more time, so we decided to let the officers use the skills for now. We'll introduce more new guild positions in the future.

  • ● Guild Officers can now use [Guild] Pledge of the Blood.
  • ● Added text to guild skills saying that guild officers can also use them.
  • ● Caphras Stone can now be extracted from all enhancement.
  • ● Fixed the issue where the oars of the Epheria Frigate appeared in unintended positions.

 

|  ITEM

  • ● The Wild Spirit Stone can now be used in Processing (Grinding) to obtain Mystical Spirit Powder.
  • ● Fixed the issue where the [Event] Golden Bell could not be stacked.
  • ● The interior point for were changed to match other chandeliers.

|  NPC, BACKGROUND, SOUND

  • ● Fixed the actions of some of the NPCs of Olvia which did not match the background.

|  QUEST & KNOWLEDGE

  • ● Amity rewards were added to some quests.

- Completing quests will make it easier for you to become better acquainted with NPCs.

- Amity rewards vary depending on the characteristics of the NPC and quest given.

- This does not include recurring and life advancement quests.

  • ● To help the growth of your characters, general quests (excluding main, life, fishing, adventure, trade, and repeat quests) now have Combat Grade EXP rewards.

- With Combat Grade EXP, you can receive different amounts of EXP depending on the level of your character.

- The amount of EXP received is not a set number, but a percentage of your current required EXP.

- For example, if you complete a quest with a Combat Grade EXP reward, a level 58 character will receive 0.5% EXP, while a level 60 character will receive 0.02% EXP.

※ The example shown is not the actual ratio used in game and is used to help you understand its concept.

- Also, the "Combat EXP Gain +30%" effect of "Chenga - Sherekhan Tome of Wisdom" is also applied to the Combat Grade EXP reward. ("Chenga - Sherekhan Tome of Wisdom" can be acquired by completing the suggested quest "[Lv.53] The Adventurer's Tome regarding the legend of Chenga".)

- Quests with Combat Grade EXP rewards are indicated with the orange Combat EXP icon in the quest rewards list.

[ Developer’s Comment ]

Every quest in Black Desert provides contribution points. These contribution points are considered a resource you can utilize to live in the world, but the importance of these points has lessened as time passed. We realized there were many Adventurers out there who enjoy playing quests since we introduced Rulupee's Travel Log, and we wanted to provide something helpful for them. Therefore, you can now get Amity points when you complete each quest and get combat EXP upon completing normal quests. We know the numbers may not be big enough but hope these changes can give Adventurers a bit more meaning for playing quests.
