GM Notes [GM Note] [Updated] 2021 Summer Season Begins
Black Desert 2021-06-29 00:00

 

Adventurers,

 

Season Servers are coming for the first time to Black Desert Console. With Corsair making her way to the game, now is a better time than any to jump into the new levelling experience of Black Desert Console. Find out how the Season experience differs from the normal server experience with this step by step guide!

 

How to Create Season Characters

You must first have at least one character slot empty to create a season character.
 
▲ Select the “Season Character” button before creating character.
 

Decide carefully which class you wish to begin with because each family can only create one character in the season server. If you wish to change over to another class, you have to delete the previous season character and begin again or use Fughar’s Timepiece.

 

Season characters have a special yellow marking on the left corner

to show that they’re a Season Server specific character.

 

Season Exclusive Tuvala Gear

■ How to acquire Tuvala Gear

Tuvala Gear is a special kind of equipment that can only be equipped by season characters! ‘Tuvala Gears’ are an excellent way to accelerate growth for Adventurers in the Season Server so be sure to get them as fast as you can.

 

Once you reach PEN (V) level with your Naru gear, go speak to Fughar. He’ll exchange your PEN (V) Naru gear for a PRI (I) Tuvala gear of the same part!

 

There are two main ways to obtain Tuvala Gear.

Method

What’s Required

How to Obtain

1

Enhance the Naru Gear you obtain from the main questline to PEN (V) enhancement level.

① Go to the NPC Fughar after completing the Mediah questline.

② Exchange the PEN (V) Naru Gear for PRI (I)  .

2

Collect Tuvala Ore that is obtainable from defeating monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia and Drieghan.

① Bring the Tuvala Ore to a Blacksmith in a major town/city.

② Exchange for your desired Tuvala Gear.

■  Tuvala Gear Quests

 

Fughar has prepared a special Tuvala gear quest for the Summer Season! He's offering to give an Advice of Valks everytime you meet the enhancement requirements.

 

 

There is a total of 7 Tuvala gears for each body part and each gear will have a respective quest reward of its own. After receiving these quests from Fughar, equip the Tuvala gear with the right enhancement level on your character. It’s as simple as that to complete the quest!

 

As a reward, you can get 7 Advice of Valks (+40) if you can equip 7 TRI (III) Tuvala gears and 7 Advice of Valks (+60) if you equip 7 TET (IV) Tuvala gears!

 
With Season Servers focussing on character growth, we’ve cranked up the heat and added a 24/7 Combat and Skill EXP buff to really get your characters rolling.
 

Season Server Boosts!

■ Simplified Main Quest (For Veteran Adventurers)

To make your season server experience even more unique from what you’ve experienced before, the Simplified Main Questline has been added to Season Servers Only. This is especially good news for those of you who have already had a good run of the main quests and want to get right down to business!

Adventurers who have met the requirements above and have progressed through the main quest up to ‘The Sage of Velia’ with a season character can acept the simplified main quest.

Begin the simplified main quest by receiving ‘[Special Growth] Birth of a Prestigious Family’ quest from [Velia] NPC Alustin.

■ Season Character EXP Transition

Ever felt like you wanted to change classes midway for your Season Character? If you started a Season Character with Class A, and changed your mind, you have an opportunity to change to Class B without having to start over again! All your Combat EXP and Skill EXP will be transferred over to the class you’ve selected!
 

Item

How to Acquire

Fughar's Timepiece

Can be obtained once per Family upon completing the [Season] Fughar's Special Timepiece quest with a season character that is Lv. 25 or higher!

* Warning! Quests that are in progress or completed on Class A will not be transferred to Class B!

 

Also, the Class B character that you wish to transfer the season character status to must be Lv. 25 or lower to be transferrable. (Class A must be connected to a normal server with all their gear unequipped.)

 

Once you’ve used Fughar’s Timepiece, you will receive three exchange coupons (Tuvala Main Weapon Exchange Coupon, Tuvala Sub-weapon Exchange Coupon, and Tuvala Awakening Exchange Coupon) in the transferred character’s inventory after you’ve gone to the Character Selection screen. Use these coupons to change your Tuvala weapons to ones that are suitable for Class B!

 

■ Party Monster Zones

Did you start the Summer Season with guildmates or friends?


In this season, three areas were changed to “Party Monster Zones.” (Normal and season servers!) Take this chance to party up with your friends and stack up loot together!
