Hello, Adventurers who explore Black Desert!


New content has been added to Black Desert on 02/13 (Wed).


Bosses have appeared from the Dark Rift throughout the Monster Zones, shall we go and see what it’s like?  


Dark Rift?

Families that have completed the prerequisite quests can encounter bosses that appear from the Dark Riftin Monster Zones.  

Both the bosses from the Dark Rift , and those from here, have one thing in common. They can only be seen by “You”.

As a result, you must defeat these bosses alone.

After defeating a boss, there is a chance you can obtain a box with accessories.

However, the difficulty level of each boss varies depending on which Monster Zone it appears in, so please exercise caution when attacking one.

▲ Giath appearing from the Dark Rift. Their appearance and combat-style isn’t any different from usual.


1. Prerequisite Quest

There is a prerequisite quest that needs to be completed to unlock the Dark Rift.

After the update on 2/13 (Wed), the Black Spirit will offer the quest [Awakening Complete] Memories of the Past for characters who have unlocked awakening.  This quest must be completed if you want the bosses to appear from the Dark Rift.

[Awakening Complete] Memories of the Past

Complete this quest to unlock the Dark Rift!

2. Confirming Appearances

How do you know If a boss has appeared from the Dark Rift?  


A large notification message will appear in the upper-middle of the game window, then a message and mark will also appear on the lower-right of the UI as well.

If you do not know the location of the Dark Rift after receiving this message, please check the World Map(M).

▲ As shown above, a large notification message will appear along with a separate one near the bottom-right.

If it’s this much, isn’t it harder to not know…?


▲ World Map(M) mark. Clicking on the Dark Rift mark will guide you to the appearance area. Keep in mind, only “You” can see this.

3. Combat

What if you’ve confirmed the appearance of a boss? Well it’s time to fight them of course!


During combat with a boss, other Adventurers cannot see or attack “You”. (Summons and Pets included)

So don’t worry, and just enjoy the tense combat between you and the boss.

▲ Once you’re fully prepared, go forward with confidence!


When the boss appears, they can only see and attack “You”. if you’re not ready, you can attack them after making preparations.

Also, there is no death penalty for dying against a boss from the Dark Rift. Challenge them without any burdens!

※ The bosses from the Dark Rift do not naturally die or disappear.

※ Bosses cannot be attacked during Conquest/Node War, so please move to a server without a war in-progress to engage the boss in combat.


4. Obtaining Rewards

After defeating a boss from the Dark Rift, it’s time for your rewards.

You can obtain two different items from looting a boss. There is the Box of the Dead, which contains various accessories, or the Dark Spirit’s Greed, which can be exchanged for other items.

▲ Make sure to loot any monster you’ve defeated!


Depending on the difficulty, you can obtain a Box of the Silent/Distorted/Desperate Dead. The items that can be obtained from each Box of the Dead are shown below.


▲ If you receive a Box of the Dead, test your luck by unlocking it.
