Update September 4th Patch Note 09.04.2019

Adventurers!

The first major content update for Black Desert is now available! This update will bring 2 new classes, new world bosses and field bosses, and so much more! Check the details below to find out what is in store in the first major update.

 

 

Dark Knight and Musa are now available for Adventurers to create and play in Black Desert.

Dark Knight wields intense power gained by burning nature's latent energy. She wields the deadly Kriegsmesser for close range encounters, and uses her powerful, nature-burning magic for mid-range encounters.

Musa was born with a tiger’s roar, and the power of that roar still echoes through his every action. His sword and bow make short work of anyone foolish enough to stand between him and his goals.

Find out more about these characters in the [GM Notes - New Class] listed.


 

A new evil threatens the world of Black Desert. With the rituals nearly complete, Kzarka is starting to break through into our realm. This powerful and evil entity is a challenging fight for many adventurers, and it will require many of you to help bring him down.

If you are brave enough to face Kzarka, you are going to need suitable gear and potions for the fight. We recommend that you have roughly 150+AP and 180+DP, however if you learn the patterns of the World Boss you will find that you may be able to survive with less than this. But remember, the more damage you can deal to Kzarka, the higher chance you have of receiving better rewards, including the best Main weapon currently in the game, the Kzarka weapon!

 


Kzarka appears at the innermost altar of Serendia Shrine. He will occasionally become immune to all attacks. When he becomes immune, you need to prepare yourselves as he will either release a powerful fire breath or rain death from above and below with powerful shockwaves. It is recommended that you keep an eye for the damage indicators on the floor, and run behind the pillars surrounding the Shrine if everything becomes red.

Killing Kzarka can reward you with many riches, including: Kzarka’s Sealed Weapon Box, Liverto Weapon Bundle, Mark of Shadow, Shrine Guardian Token, Black Stone (Weapon), Black Stone (Armor) and Silver.

Kzarka will spawn on ALL servers at the following times

Through their ties to the dark energy that permeates through the Black Desert world, Red Nose, Dastard Bheg, Giant Mudster and Dim Tree Spirit have all received a significant power boost. Due to the threat they pose to key settlements, anyone who helps bring them down will be rewarded handsomely for their efforts.

 

With field bosses, we have also added the chance to collect powerful Boss Armors. Red Nose’s Armor, Bheg’s Gloves, Muskan’s Shoes, Giath’s Helmet and Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor have all been added to the game. To find out more about field bosses, please head to
[GM Note - Field Bosses & Boss Armor]

You will now be able to enhance the Asula’s Crimson Eye Accessory set. You can take your Asula’s Accessories from 0 to PEN through enhancing with the Black Spirit. Asula Accessories are not able to be sold on the Central Market, so be aware before you invest time and silver into enhancing these accessories.

To enhance Asula’s Crimson Eye Accessory set, you will need the ‘Asula’s Weakened Magic Accessory of the same type. For example, if you wish to enhance Asula’s Crimson Eye Earring, you will need to enhance it with the Asula’s Weakened Magic Earring. Like other accessories, if you fail enhancing an Asula Crimson Eye accessory, it will be destroyed.

 

Asula’s Weakened Magic Accessory can be found at the following locations:
Asula’s Weakened Magic Ring: Helms Post

Asula’s Weakened Magic Necklace: Abandoned Iron Mine

Asula’s Weakened Magic Earring: Helms Post
Asula’s Weakened Magic Belt: Elric Shrine


You can also exchange Asula’s Crimson Eye accessories into the Weakened variant and vice versa at the following locations:

Tarif - Yisar Pjetyo the Alchemist
Altinova - Jeweler Belgar

It takes 1 Asula’s Crimson Eye accessory to transfer into 2 Asula’s Weakened Magic accessories, or 3 Asula’s Weakened Magic accessories into 1 Asula’s Crimson Eye accessory.


Getting Hard Black Crystal Shards and Sharp Black Crystal Shards can be an arduous task. They can only be found through gathering, which makes it difficult for those who do not life skill to obtain these important items for enhancing past +15. To make life easier for adventurers, you can now use simple processing to melt down various accessories and receive Hard and Sharp Black Crystal Shards.

To heat these items, you will need to go to processing (Default Ring Menu L2+↑ then left) and find the heating option. By heating various accessories you will now be able to obtain Hard and Sharp Black Crystal Shards.

The Hunting Lifeskill is now active. Pick up those matchlocks and go hunting creatures with the tag above their names. From alligators to seagulls, wolves to whales, there are plenty of animals for you to go out and hunt. [Game Guide - Hunting]



The Node War and Conquest War Pre-Seasons will begin soon. Engage in action packed large scale Guild vs Guild fights and take control of the lands of Black Desert. Node Wars offer the perfect testing grounds for guids, but if you find that your guild is looking for more of a challenge then you can fight in Conquest Wars to own a territory. Want to learn more about Node and Conquest War? Check out our Game Guide here: [GM Note - Node & Conquest War]

 

Note: During preseason, Conquest Wars will not be activated. This also means that Tax Wagons will not spawn during this time. Preseason is expected to run between September 4th to September 25th with the first Conquest War being the week after that.

System changes include quality of life additions that can’t easily be categorized into the above areas. Our developers are always looking into making both small and large changes to functions of the game to improve the gameplay for everyone.

  • You can now retrieve items from your mail anywhere in the Black Desert world.
  • Fall damage no longer applies when descending the towers in Red Battlefield.
  • You can now choose to throw away certain grades of fish. If you choose to throw away green fish, only blue and yellow fish will remain in your inventory. This will not affect vendor items, relics, and other items you can fish up while fishing.

  • Added a function to collect all in the challenge window. This will not apply to challenges that require a choice of items.
  • For the time being, the Guild Apprentice system has been disabled. This will allow you to promote other players freely for the time being. 

  • Default Chat Window settings have been changed so that Guild/World/Notices are now activated by default. You can change this by going to settings>Chat Window Settings and changing them from on to off.
  • To allow guilds to grow easier, we have removed the apprentice system from guilds. This function may return at a later date once guilds have had time to stabilize.
