Not sure what a Season Server is? Don’t worry, because this GM Note has got you covered with everything you need to know!


Season Servers?

“Season Servers” are special progression-focused servers that are available for even novice Adventurers, which can allow them to quickly adapt to the Black Desert world.

Although you can only access and play on season servers with a season character, season characters can also access the normal servers and later “graduate” from the season servers to be converted into normal characters.

 

▲ 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.

4. Tuvala Equipment 

Season Servers offer a special set of equipment known as “Tuvala.” This equipment is intended to help novice Adventurers get their footing in the Black Desert world, so it has a higher rate of enhancement compared to normal equipment.

 

You can obtain these materials from various sources, including the Season Pass Challenges, season server monster zones, and weekly monster zone quest.

- In the Quests > Recurring tab’s “[Season] Stronger Tuvala Gear” quest list, you can accept the weekly quests from each zone’s Node Manager.

 

Lastly, Tuvala Equipment can still be used after the season ends, and PEN (V) Tuvala Equipment can be used to obtain PEN (V) Boss Gear through a guaranteed upgrade questline.

 

5. Season Materials

In the Season Servers, you can obtain special materials that are used to obtain and enhance Tuvala Equipment, or can just be sold to NPC Vendors for Silver.

 

You can obtain these materials from various sources, including the Season Pass Challenges, season server monster zones, and weekly monster zone quest.

6. Season Character Transfer System

What if you created your season character as Class A, but now want to play with Class B...?


Don’t worry! Because you can use “Fughar’s Timepiece” to transfer your season character’s season status and Combat/Skill EXP!

Item Name

How to Obtain

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!

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

Additionally, the Class B character must be Lv. 25 or lower to allow the transfer. (The Class A character must on 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. You can use these coupons to change your Tuvala weapons to ones that are suitable for Class B.

 

Afterward, you can use your new season character to play on the Season party monster zones, Season Atoraxxion, and more. Make sure to check out the patch notes for more details!

 

 


Season Server Graduation Rewards

 

If you fulfill the requirements, you can “graduate” from the Season Servers and receive several special rewards to help you get ready for the normal servers. “Graduation” allows you to quickly convert your season character to a normal character. This system is only available after a certain of time has passed since the start of the season. And of course, once you graduate, you will no longer be able to revert your character into a season character.


In order to graduate, you must not have “Fughar’s Timepiece,” and you must have claimed all the rewards from the Season Pass.
* Graduation requirements are subject to change. Please refer to the upcoming patch notes for the exact details.

 

 

First Gift: Tuvala Equipment Conversion 

Once you graduate, your character will no longer be a season character, meaning your character will no longer be able to equip Season Tuvala Equipment. That’s why you’ll need to use the Tuvala Conversion Stones, which you receive as a reward, to convert the Season Tuvala Equipment.

 

 

When you decide to use the Tuvala Conversion Stone, make sure to avoid converting the wrong Tuvala Equipment if you have multiple of the same type.

 

Second Gift: Special Season Gift

The NPC Fughar offers a special gift quest, which you can complete to obtain the “Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon” that allows you to select one of the special season rewards.

 

Note: You cannot claim a reward that you’ve claimed previously.
