GM Notes [GM Note] Introduction to Manos Equipment
Black Desert 2021-10-01 00:00

 

Today, we will take a look into the ultimate life skill equipment, Manos.

Manos equipment will tremendously help you increase your life skill mastery in the life skills that you enjoy the most. Today, GM StarsEnd will be your guide with introducing the newly added Manos equipment.

Shall we?


1. Introducing Manos Equipment

Manos equipment is the highest-grade life skill items, and the third in the life skill mastery series following Loggia and Geranoa (Dostter Steel Tools) gears.

 

Similar to Loggia and Geranoa tools, Manos consists of Gathering Tools, Processing Stones, Life Skill Mastery Clothes, Accessories and a Riding Crop. Being the highest grade means that it's got its own advantages up its sleeves. Manos equipment provides much more life skill mastery than green and blue grade life skill gears.

 

While Manos gears provide much more mastery, it is much more difficult to acquire and enhance than the Loggia or Geranoa life skill gears.

 

But do not worry! We will take a look at everything there is to know about Manos in order to help you get your hands on your first Manos gears!

 

Manos Gathering Tools

 

There are a total of six different Manos Gathering Tools: Hoe, Lumbering Axe, Fluid Collector, Tanning Knife, Butcher Knife and Pickaxe. Each gathering tool increases the life skill mastery of their respective life skill.

*Manos Hoe has the following additional unique effects:

After enhancement, some of the following functions may improve when you dig up Lakiaros.

 

Dig Deeply

- Dig up more dirt while avoiding pebbles and the Lakiaro.

- If the hoe directly lands on the Lakiaros, its value will be decreased but not as much.

Dig Shallowly

- The value of the Lakiaro will not decrease.

- Dirt and pebbles cannot be dug up.

- The number of shallow digs available will increase as enhancement level increases.

The base item effects of Manos Gathering Tools are the same as Loggia and Dostter Steel Gathering Tools, but the mastery gained from enhancing Manos Gathering Tools is far more significant than mastery from Loggia and Dostter Steel Gathering Tools.

Manos Processing Stones

 

There are six types of Manos Processing Stones and by equipping them, you will be able to use the Mass Process function.

Processing Stones

Chopping

Drying

[Mass Process Menu]

 

Mass Process allows processing of larger number of materials at once. As the enhancement level of the processing stones increases and the mastery with it, the number of materials that can be mass processed at once also increases. This allows you to quickly process all those materials that have been accumulating in your storage!

 

The time it takes to mass process is equivalent to 10 normal processes without using processing stones. For that reason, it is generally a good idea to use a processing stone to process bulk materials to save time.

 

[▲With 500 Mastery, you can process 35 batches of materials at once]

 

Identical to Manos Gathering Tools, the maximum processing mastery gained by enhancing Manos Processing Stones are greater than Loggia and Techthon Processing Stones.

Enhancement Level

Loggia Processing Stone - Sun

Note!

Mass Process function can’t be used if the durability of Processing Stone is less than 100.

Tip!

Q: How do I get Manos Stones and Magical Shards?

[▲Manos Stone]

[▲Magical Shard]

A:

Manos Stones can be purchased for 5,000,000 Silver from the Jeweler at any town.

 

Magical Shards can be attained by Heating Yellow grade Black Magic Crystals.

 

Alternatively, you can use 10 Scorched Fragments instead of 40 Magical Shards to manufacture Manos Accessories.

 

Q: Where can I find Scorched Fragments?

 

A: Good question!
There are two ways to obtain Scorched Fragments.

 

Exchange 100 Golden Seals - [Imperial Alchemy] or 100 Shiny Golden Seals [Imperial Alchemy], which can be obtained from the [Alchemy] Delivery Gift Box, to NPC Lots Pavarotti in Olvia.

 

The second option is to go to Lara, the General Goods Vendor in Heidel. Complete “[Daily] Lara’s Great Discovery and Bread” and select Scorched Fragments from the rewards.


3. How to enhance Manos Gears

 

All Manos Equipment can be enhanced to PEN (V), the higher the enhancement level of the item, the higher the amount of Life Skill Mastery they provide.

- Manos Tools can be enhanced to +7 without the chance of failure.

 

- You can force enhance Manos Tools from +8 to +15.

 

- In the event of a failed enhancement attempt, the Enhancement Chance will increase by +1 regardless of the level of the item.

- Manos Clothes can be enhanced to +5 without the chance of failure.
