GM Notes [GM Note] Node War changes at a Glance
Black Desert 2023-01-18 00:00

33 New Expanded Battlefields 

  • The total number of Nodes that can be fought over has been reduced to 33, allowing a greater chance of multiple guilds placing in one spot.  
  • Due to the readjustment of active nodes, the maximum amount of nodes a guild can own has been limited to 3 as to avoid a monopoly.

With the removal of main nodes
Choose the days you want to fight

  • Fight as many Node Wars as you wish, regardless of the day of the week (however, you can only hold at most 3 nodes).
  • Multiple Node War placements cannot be done at the same time, and only one node per day may be placed on.
