GM Notes [GM Note] [Updated] Season + Graduation and Progression Pass
Black Desert 2021-10-27 00:00


Season+ Graduation begins after the October 28th maintenance! This means from October 28th, you will be able to graduate from the season servers, and continue your journeys on the normal servers to achieve bigger and better goals.

In this notice, we’ll be taking a look at the new content that was not available in the previous season! We look forward to helping Season Characters adjust to the regular seasons in the most comfortable ways possible.

1. Graduation?

Let’s introduce what graduation is for those who are new to the season process, or those who have forgotten what the process of Graduation is.

Graduating allows your Season Character to become a regular character. It will still be able to do most of what it can already do, however you will be able to explore the Black Desert world at large, equip better gear and continue your path on the Black Desert adventure.

Graduating also gives you various rewards that will help you along your way in Black Desert! You can find more information about this later in the notice.

Why should I graduate now?


“I really like the Season Servers, do I really have to Graduate now?”


Graduating now is not mandatory, and if you wish, you can still enjoy the Season servers until the end of the Season+ window. There is plenty of time to take it easy and savour the process of building your season character step by step.

Season characters are limited to the Season-exclusive ‘Tuvala Gear.’ This means that you may have a harder time expanding your horizons, trying more difficult content or continuing to build your character up. When you do decide to graduate, you will be able to equip normal gear that you can purchase from the Central Market, allowing further progression for your character.

Additionally, you will get amazing rewards from Fughar, the graduation NPC, for graduating into the big wide world. These rewards are extremely helpful in moving forward with your adventures!


When Should I Graduate?

- To get the most out of your [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupons, enhance your Tuvala Gear to PEN (V) so the exchange coupons give you a TET (IV) piece of Boss Gear of the same slot! For example, exchanging a PEN(V) Tuvala Armor will reward you with a TET (IV) Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor.


- Remember, reach Lv. 61 to receive Tuvala accessories from the Level Up Rewards.

Season character Lv. 60 Reward: PEN(V) Tuvala Ring

Season character Lv. 61 Reward: PEN(V) Tuvala Earring


Remember that Graduating will mean that you will no longer be a season character, restricting you from accessing the Season servers, so if you have some unfinished business on the Season Servers, you will be unable to go back.

2. Graduation Requirements and How-tos

Ready to graduate from Season+? First, you’ll need to fulfill the following requirements.

Season+ Graduation Requirements (Must be fulfilled)
