Adventurers! 

 

The latest update to Black Desert Console is here! The Crows Daughter, Corsair, makes her way to Black Desert along with Season Servers to enjoy a new way to level up a character! Special Quests, great rewards, and new adventurers await! 

 


The Dreamer Pirate, Corsair! 

● Corsair, the latest class in Black Desert, is now playable!

 

 

- Corsair will launch with her Succession.

※ Awakening is scheduled to be released in around 4~5 weeks (subject to change). Corsair’s awakening will be filled with a variety of features and new weapons, so please look forward to its introduction.

● Added a ‘simplified’ main quest for Adventurers that can only be completed on the Season Server.

- The simplified main questline will be available to Adventurers that have completed the entire Mediah main questline and completed the quest ‘[Pet] Bareeds’ Junaid’ from Bareeds III at least once. The simplified questing can only be completed once per family with a Season character.

- When a season character reaches Velia through the main questline and completed ‘The Sage of Velia’ quest, go to Alustin in Velia to start the simplified questline by accepting the quest ‘[Special Growth] Birth of Prestigious Family’.

- Once you accept this quest, you will not be able to complete the Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon and Mediah main quests. Instead, you will be able to level freely and receive rewards for reaching certain levels.

- The last quest of the simplified questline ‘[Special Growth] Fughar’s Memorandum – Chapter 11’ will make the character count as having completed Mediah, thus allowing them to begin the Valencia quest line.

- Additionally, when progressing through each of the quests, the character will get inventory expansion quests and certain regular quests.

Dev Comment

The first season has finally begun on Black Desert Console. As many Adventurers have been waiting for this update, we hope this encourages new Adventurers to settle in easier and flourish in our game.
 
When creating the season server, we had 3 main goals in mind:


First, we wanted to provide easier means for new adventurers to settle into Black Desert quickly but, at the same time, also keep intact the mechanism that rewards your efforts in Black Desert. We tried hard not to grant massive amounts of powers to new Adventurers who don't know how to harness it or allow quantum leaps as soon as they accessed the game.

 

This season, we focused on the equipment issue for new adventurers which can prove to be a daunting obstacle for newer players who want to get involved in the game. We have prepared a milder version of the gear enhancement system in Black Desert on the season servers through the Tuvala equipments and Time-filled Black Stones. The Tuvala equipment, once enhanced properly, can become as effective as the high tier Boss gears. However, the enhancements in the TRI – TET- PEN zone has not been overly simplified and enhancements in this tier will still require considerable stacks for progression. We tried to balance and preserve this aspect of the game because we felt that this was always a core component of how Adventurers came to love Black Desert: the sense of accomplishment when you overcome the difficulties and the grit inspired by failures. This is an experience unique to Black Desert, and maintaining these aspects make it easier to adapt and enjoy the game on the main servers of Black Desert.

 

Secondly, we wanted to give our previous Adventurers the excitement and joy of a fresh start, something that is particularly difficult to experience in Black Desert. The Olvia Server was originally designed with this intention and has been serving its purpose well but, as those servers are permanently active, it may take away some of the refresh factor that we intended with the Season Servers. Seasonal servers, however, are open for a limited period on a seasonal basis so we believe that this can help compensate for the short coming of the Olvia Servers. To amplify the refresh factor, we also added several restrictions: Adventurers cannot use equipment of their existing characters and ride Dream Horses. This allows Black Desert Seasons, when they open up, to feel truly equal and new at the same time. Of course, it won't be 100% the same as a fresh launch but we hope that you can once again experience that sense of entering a new world, brimming with a new expectations and liveliness when you start an MMORPG from the beginning.

Finally, we want to help Adventurers adapt to existing servers once the season ends. Over the years, Black Desert has amassed a large amount of content, and while this is an advantage, it can also be seen as a burden for newer players. This is the reason why majority of the season server’s benefits are focused on combat. While there are no restrictions on accessing other avenues of Gameplay, we feel that this might relieve some of the burden of getting lost in a massive open world with so many things to do.

We want to let our Adventurers know that it is our wish to service Black Desert, a game which we love so dearly, for as long as possible until stands against the very test of time. To accomplish this, we believe that there must be a delicate balance in the system: accumulated efforts should be rewarded but the system should also try to narrow the gear gap between Adventurers of new and old. The Season Server is our answer to this endeavor. We hope that our efforts can be felt. As this is Consoles first season server, we may find some shortcomings, but we promise to continue to quickly respond and continue developing the concept of season servers. We hope that you enjoy the season servers as much as we have enjoyed creating them. Thank You.
