● Improved the system message to display the family name of the Adventurer that destroyed the fort/command post/field HQ during Node/Conquest War.

We have added the Adventurer's family name to be displayed on the message so all may know which guild member dealt the glorious final blow to the enemy fort.

● Improved to be able to resurrect without going to the loading screen when you die within a certain vicinity of the fort/command post/field HQ during Node/Conquest War.

- When resurrecting without going to the loading screen, the character will be invincible for 5 sec.

 

● Added the max Special Evasion limit to the Node/Conquest Wars that have Stat Limits.

UI Changes

● Added a message UI showing how to differentiate items that can and cannot be used by season characters when attempting to use an item that season characters cannot use.

- This UI will show when trying to equip items that cannot be used by Season Characters.

 

● The number of skills that display on the Mount Information UI in the stable has been modified.

 

● The World Map Key Guide has been modified from ‘Navigate’ to ‘Navigate/Cancel’.

 

● Added the UI that allows you to recruit party/platoon members from within the guild easier.

- You can create a party/platoon through the Guild window by clicking on the Party/Platoon Recruitment button.

- The created party/platoon will only be displayed to your guild members.

 

● Added a Camera Settings interface to make it easier to adjust the camera location and distance when modifying the camera settings.

- Press and hold R3 to bring up the UI.

 

 

● Added the Login Reward Notification UI to appear when you first login to the game to clearly show what items you are getting on that day.

- You will be able to see what items you are getting today, and which items you will be getting the next day.

- You will be able to find the rewards in your Black Spirit’s Safe

 

Login Rewards are available for new and veteran Adventurers to collect. However, new Adventurers had a difficult time understanding what today’s login rewards were, what they will get tomorrow, know where the items were stored. Therefore, we improved on the visual effects of the login rewards and the UI to show what items Adventurers are getting today, what is available tomorrow, and show where the item is being stored.

● Changed the Crossroads quest window to now indicate how many times you've selected a certain quest route.

- Adventurers who've yet to complete a certain Crossroads quest will not see any indicators for that specific quest.

 

While adventuring in the world of Black Desert, you will reach Crossroads quests in the main storyline that will introduce you to different NPCs and bits of story based on the choices you make. For Adventurers who've created new characters or are trying to complete quests to obtain knowledge for Adventure Logs, or are simply in the mood to seek out new and never before experienced Black Desert storylines, this update will make it easier to discern exactly how many times you've chosen a specific route in a Crossroads quest, thus making it easier to access the various storylines of Black Desert.
