MAJOR UPDATES - Guild Base Servers

● Added content to enable the designation of a specific server group as a guild's "base" server for the sake of promoting guild unity and camaraderie.
- You can now select one of the server groups (excluding Season, Olvia, and Arsha servers) as your guild's base server.
- Only the Guild Master can choose a guild's base server, which they may do by selecting it on the Guild information window.
※ You can set a guild's base server once every thirty days, so we recommend you choose your guild's base server with care.
(You can change the base server from the Guild (G) window by selecting a specific base server group, then confirming the change.)

 

- All guild members will be able to see the guild base server selected by the Guild Master when logging in or on the Server Change window.
- Selecting a base server will eliminate the waiting time (10 min) when moving between a server group's channels.
- With the addition of guild base servers, the names of certain servers have been changed.

SEA
Before After Group
Balenos 1 Balenos 1 1
Balenos 2 Balenos 2
Serendia 1 Serendia 1 2
Heidel 1 Serendia 2
Calpheon 1 Calpheon 1 3
Calpheon 2 Calpheon 2
Mediah 1 Mediah 1 4
Valencia 2 Mediah 2
Kamasylvia 1 Kamasylvia 1 5
Valencia 1 Valencia 1

* Moving from a base server group to another server group, or vice versa, will still apply the original waiting time (10 min) as before.

 

 


MAJOR UPDATES - Crypt of Resting Thoughts Rework

As the most difficult monster zone in Black Desert, improvements were made to the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.
With your Accuracy, DP, and other stats at a certain level, you will be able to fight against the Ahibs possessed by Turasil's aura, but it will still be seen as "the most difficult" monster zone.
To entice Adventurers seeking the challenge of the crypt, we added the "Deboreka Belt" loot drop. Like the Ash Forest, which was thought to be an impossible challenge, is now being conquered by our Adventurers through continued advancement and strategic play. We hope the newly improved Crypt of Resting Thoughts will also be a new goal that our Adventurers can go for.
● The Ahib patrolling the Crypt of Resting Thoughts have gone into a frenzy due to Turasil's dark aura.
 
- The Ahib Salun Wolf and Bear Spearmaidens have begun patrolling inside the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.
- They've become greatly empowered thanks to the overflow of Turasil's aura, and must be treated with caution.
- The [Abyssal] Ahib Dark Chasers draw from Turasil's aura, and will attack Adventurers from the darkness.
- The [Abyssal] Ahib Dark Mages draw from Turasil's aura to cast healing spells upon wounded Ahib or deal devastating damage upon Adventurers.
* Use debuff attacks to interrupt the Ahib Dark Mages casting to take them down with greater ease.
- Sightings of the [Abyssal] Dark Knight have been reported in the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.
- The [Abyssal] Dark Knights are beings corrupted by Turasil's aura, and, once defeated, have a low chance to summon the Burning One, Raz'nal.
- The [Burning One] Raz'nal is a powerful foe that demands the utmost attention of any Adventurers who dare challenge her.
▲ [Burning One] Raz'nal
- You can obtain the Deboreka Belt and the Abyssal Gaze by defeating monsters in the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.
 

 

● Added a new accessory, the Deboreka Belt, which can be obtained by defeating monsters in the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.

Deboreka Belt AP Accuracy Weight Limit
0 9 2 +80 LT
I (PRI) 12 4 +80 LT
II (DUO) 15 6 +80 LT
III (TRI) 18 8 +80 LT
IV (TET) 21 10  +80 LT
V (PEN) 24 12  +80 LT

Skill Before After
Abyssal Flame (I to Absolute) Recover 6 fragments when used while charging (available during cooldown) Recover 3 fragments when used while charging (available during cooldown)
Prime: Abyssal Flame (I to III) Recover 5 fragments when used while charging (unavailable during cooldown) Recover 5 fragments when used while charging (available during cooldown)

● Prime: Heilang's Aura - Fixed the issue where the Increase All Resistance effect was only lasting for 20 seconds.
● Void Lightning, Roaring, Heilang: Howling - Fixed the issue where, if you were struck while with Heilang's Effect activated, Heilang would cease to attack.

 

Currently, Musa has displayed superiority in the so-called "Super Armor trade" thanks to his excellent mobility via Chase and One Step Back, and skills with increased attack range such as Fiery Crevice, Below the Belt, and Crust Crusher. We've taken note of this advantage and have sought to adjust each skills' damage in PvP after spending hours examining copious amounts of data that confirmed that Musa was dealing too much damage. Thus, we decided to preserve Musa's ability to chain Chase with block effect skills, thus retaining his Super Armor trading capabilities, but adjusted his damage when performing these combos in the PvP setting.

● Applied changes to the following skills.

Skill Before After
Fiery Crevice (I to III) Damage -16.6% in PvP Damage -43% in PvP
Below the Belt (I to III) Attack 1 damage -24.8/24.8/34.5% in PvP
Extra attack damage -40.7/40.7/48.4% in PvP
Attack damage -52% in PvP
Projection (I to III) Blade damage of extra attacks and certain skills -18.5/18.5/18.6% in PvP Blade damage of extra attacks and certain skills -46%/46%/46.1% in PvP

● Prime: Retaliation - Changed to now require only pressing LMB to activate after certain skills.
● Tiger Blade - Fixed the issue where the Super Armor buff was being applied when using the skill.

 

The reboot saw Maehwa now able to combo not only with Moonrise and Flow: Cloud Stab, but also utilize Ice Fang in combos with Frost Pillars and Flow: Tip of an Iceberg. However, we determined that Ice Fang, Frost Pillars, and Flow: Tip of an Iceberg deal rather high damage, and with the included Forward Guard effect, this made the Moonrise - Flow: Cloud Stab combo less popular. Also, and similar to Musa, Maehwa could deal high amounts of damage while nearly ignoring other players' defense effects by comboing with Chase. Therefore, we made adjustments to the damage dealt so that you must combo after first applying debuff effects to deal greater amounts of damage.

● Applied changes to the following skills.

Skill Before After
Frost Pillars (I to III) Damage -42.7% in PvP Damage -55% in PvP
Flow: Tip of an Iceberg Damage -47% in PvP Damage -57% in PvP
Ice Fang Damage -35% in PvP Damage -45% in PvP

● Prime: Carver - Fixed the issue where you would combo into other skills abnormally slower when using Red Blade.
● Tiger Blade - Fixed the issue where the Super Armor buff was being applied when drawn.

 

WITCH, WIZARD

The greatest changes the reboot brought to Witch and Wizard was to their summons. Unlike before, this change for the summoned creature's basic stats to be directly affected by your character's stats was to grant the feeling of your summon growing with your character. However, we received much feedback from Witch and Wizard players that their summons felt weaker after the reboot, where upon inspection, we discovered that the summons of characters with 260 AP or lower were not properly being affected, so we addressed this issue with the latest update.

● Implemented a new rule regarding the summoned creature's Attack Power.
- If the summoner's basic AP is 260 or lower, their summon will gain a fixed bonus AP of 100.
- If the summoner's basic AP is 100 or lower, the summon will not receive an AP bonus.

The awakened Lahn is a class that can easily enter and leave the battlefeld thanks to Nimbus Stride and powerful Invincible buff skills such as Primrose Sprint and Phantom. Together with her added Attack Speed or Accuracy Rate buffs, Lahn could enter battle with more advantages than other classes. Thus, we decided to restrict her Stamina recovery if using Deadly Dance while moving so that Lahn will now need to manage her Stamina when entering and leaving the battlefield.

● Applied changes to the following skills.

Skill Before After
Bridled Despair (I to IV) Damage -51.2/51.2/51.3/51.3% in PvP Damage -66% in PvP

- Absolute: Moondance, Absolute: Pendulum Kick, Absolute: Pendulum Kick II, Absolute: Moon Slash, Absolute: Crescent Barrage, Absolute: Soul Ascent, Absolute: Blooming Nether Flower, Absolute: Deadly Restraint, Absolute: Coax, Absolute: Fragrant Stigma, Absolute: Furious Chase, Absolute: Blade Dance, Absolute: Eye of the Phoenix, Absolute: Dismemberment, Absolute: Ethereal Dance

● Black Blood's Descent - Fixed the issue where using the skill with your jordun would shorten the movement distance.
● Black Spirit: Prime: Claw Reveal - Changed the damage in PvP as follows.
- Damage -35% in PvP → Damage -62.3% in PvP

We sought to adjust the numbers for the Black Spirit's Rage skills of all classes while focused on mostly PvE, and sought to maintain the previous damage amounts in PvP as much as possible. Thus, we discovered that Black Spirit: Prime: Claw Reveal was dealing abnormally higher amounts of damage in PvP, and adjusted the numbers accordingly.

 

● Black Spirit: Dune Slash - Fixed the description to mention the actual damage amount.
● Black Spirit: Dune Slash - Fixed the issue where the last attack damage wasn't being applied.

We do apologize for the inconvenience caused by this issue and the temporary measures we had to take. We will strive to provide a more stable service in the future.
