Updates [Update] Patch Notes - September 14, 2022
Black Desert 2022-09-14 09:00


A new update is here, bringing changes to Node/Conquest Wars as well as a variety of quality of life changes! Read on to see all the latest changes to Black Desert Console.



Conquest War, Node War

This update brings about quality of life improvements and balancing to building siege weapons and annexes during Node and Conquest Wars. First off, you'll be able to change the highlight color of other guild names, thus making it easier to discern between friend or foe. In addition, for more convenient installation of forts or annexes, we reduced the construction time to 1 second and adjusted the types of terrain required for construction as well. With the remote construction function added prior, we hope this update's additions also serve to be useful for our Node and Conquest War engineers. Last but not least, we made Node and Conquest War forts, command posts, and annexes a bit sturdier, making them slightly more impervious to normal attacks so these buildings wouldn't be destroyed too quickly. However, we also increased the damage of elephants and the ballista to retain the destructive power of siege weapons as well.

● Changed so the number of installed forts on the World Map are now displayed an hour before Node/Conquest War begins.
● Changed the installation time for Fort/Command Post/Field HQ and all annex buildings from 15 to 1 second while Node/Conquest War is not underway.
