Major Updates – Garmoth’s Nest

  • Added 'Garmoth's Nest', a new region, to the Red Battlefield.

- In Garmoth's Nest, Garmoth will randomly attack adventurers by breathing fire both on land and while flying overhead.

- 5 minutes after the battlefield begins, pots will appear all over the region, which you can break to obtain items that grant you powerful buffs.

- If you're killed in Garmoth's Nest, you will randomly be revived from one of three sites that exist per team.

- Pots and Red Battlefield NPCs are available at each revival site, allowing access to obtainable buffs and purchasable potions.

- Select Menu → War → Red Battlefield to enter the Red Battlefield from Garmoth's Nest.




We've added a new map, Garmoth's Nest, to the Red Battlefield. Unlike the existing Red Battlefield, this is a map with an entirely different feel, and we've added some new strategic elements that will spice things up for adventurers already familiar with the battlefield. Besides increasing the size of the map and altering some rules, we're testing out different ideas to continue expanding on the Red Battlefield with new changes and styles of gameplay.


Major Updates – Kratuga Ancient Ruins

  • The new hunting ground - Kratuga Ancient Ruins - was discovered by adventurers.

Kratuga Ancient Ruins is the new hunting ground and it is recommended for Adventurers with around 250 AP. We hope you can move on from the 210 - 240 AP hunting grounds to have an even more enjoyable time at the new hunting ground. If you’re struggling with places like Aakman or Hystria Ruins, this can be a good location for you to hone your skills.

-  You can open the entrance to Kratuga Ancient Ruins at a certain location in Hasrah Ancient Ruins for a limited time by using Black Spirit's Claw Piece or an Unsealed Ruins Slate.

- You can enter and leave the Ruins freely while the gate is opened.

- Unsealed Ruins Slates can be obtained by combining Sealed Ruins Slate x3 which is dropped by monsters in Kratuga Ancient Ruins.

- Recommended AP for Kratuga Ancient Ruins: 250 or higher AP

  • Crystal of Elkarr, a new crystal that can be transfused into main weapon slots, was added.

Crystal of Elkarr

Simple Alchemy

Elkarr x 1

Black Magic Crystal – Precision x 1

Magical Shard x 10

- The new item gives All Accuracy +12 and Ignore All Resistance +10% when equipped.

-  Elkarr, the material needed to make Crystal of Elkarr, can be obtained in the new hunting ground Kratuga Ancient Ruins as a very rare drop.


Major Updates – UI Editing

  • Changed the Black Desert Team's entrance and revival point of Castle Ruins in the Red Battlefield in order to make it not too close to the castle walls.

We've added the new guild positions of guild advisor and guild cannoneer.


The advisor position is granted even greater authority than the guild officer position, as they can even renew guild officer contracts. Guild masters can appoint their most trusted officer as the advisor, and so we've added this position in hoping that it will allow for more flexible and convenient guild management.


Cannoneers are quite important for a guild that enjoys Node/Conquest Wars. We've added the cannoneer position not only to identify that appointed guild member as the cannoneer, but to grant them some bragging rights, too. At the moment, there are no special powers specific to this position, but... we are currently in the middle of preparing something.


We plan on developing even more positions to diversify the roles of guild members in their respective guilds. We are especially taking into consideration how to make each position unique, so we ask for much of your suggestions and feedback as well.


  • Added a new feature where guilds can receive Guild Support Funds depending on their size.

- Guild Support Funds will be provided as guild funds in accordance with the size of the guild every Sunday at 24:00 UTC (Monday 00:00 UTC).

- Note that Guild Support Funds will only be provided when 10 or more guild members are online. If less than 10 members are online by the aforementioned time, the funds for the week will not be provided.

- Only Guild Masters, Advisors, and Officers can claim Guild Support Funds.
