MAJOR UPDATES - Artifacts & Lightstones

“Artifacts,” the new equipment item, and “Lightstones,” items that give Artifacts additional effects, which were introduced during the last Calpheon Ball, were added.

Unlike the pre-existing gear that affects the displayed AP and DP numbers, artifacts and lightstones were designed to give Adventurers more choices that synergizes with their class and playstyle better. Artifacts have two lightstone-only slots and, when a certain combination of three or four lightstones are infused into those slots, an additional combination effect will be applied. It is similar to the current combined magic crystals like the Hoom crystals. There is a wide variety of combination effects to choose from, so there most likely will be something for everyone.

However, the effects of the combined magic crystals were fixed. Lightstones, on the other hand, provide different effects depending on the different combinations. Additionally, lightstones can be safely removed using Silver (via a vendor-bought item) which will make them much easier to experiment with compared to crystals.

Adventurers could “complete” their artifact collection by defeating monsters, however, lightstones require alchemy to bring out their full potential. The item “Imperfect Lightstones” can be obtained as loot for defeating monsters and rewards for various content. Then, the imperfect lightstones will need to be purified with Alchemy to uncover exactly which lightstone you've obtained, and even have a small chance of unearthing a second lightstone in the process. When we first presented lightstones during the Calpheon Ball, they were shown as enhanceable items. However, we decided that using Alchemy, one of Black Desert's major Life Skill, would be better for two reasons. First, we can lower the stress of needing to enhance another item. Second, this allows us to make major Life Skill content, Alchemy, even more meaningful. We also did add the option of paying an NPC (like Dalishain) with Silver in each of the major cities and towns to perform alchemy on the Imperfect Lightstones for Adventurers. However, this will be more expensive to do.
※ Note: Artifacts cannot be registered on the Central Market. However, “Imperfect Lightstones,” “Lightstones,” and “Purified Lightstones” all can be registered on the Central Market.

Like we mentioned earlier, our intent with artifacts and lightstones is to create a greater variety of item sets for our Adventurers. Most of the effects added in this update are based on pre-existing effects. We have future plans to add a wider variety of effects, like cooldown reduction of specific class skills and increasing damage during nighttime.

Artifact

● Added the new equipment type items "Artifact."
- Characters can equip up to 2 artifacts and each artifact has 2 lightstone-exclusive slots.
- There are a variety of artifacts and each of them have their own effects. Artifacts can be infused with lightstones to provide the character with even more effects.
- Artifacts cannot be registered on the Central Market.
- Item Branding Scrolls can be used on artifacts.
- Artifacts can be divided into four major types of effects. Effect of the artifact will differ depending on its type.
- Artifacts affect the stats displayed in My Information (P) -> Battle Stats -> Combat Type.

Sethra's Artifact Life Skill effects

- For more details on artifacts and their effects, go to [Adventurer's Guide > Artifact/Lightstone > List of Artifacts].

How to Obtain Artifacts

● Artifacts can be obtained from quests, defeating monsters, Dark Rifts, World Bosses, Boss Summon Scrolls, Guild Raids, and various Life Skill content like Gathering.
- For more details on how to obtain artifacts, go to [Adventurer's Guide > Artifact/Lightstone > Artifacts].

Transforming Artifacts

Simple Alchemy (L)
 Purified Lightstone x2-3

 

Lightstones

● Added the new "Lightstone" item that can be infused into artifacts to provide additional effects.
- 2 lightstones can be infused into an artifact. So, a maximum of 4 lighstones can be used at a time with 2 artifacts equipped.
- You can get the effect of a lightstone by infusing it into your artifacts. When the lightstones infused into your artifacts match a certain combination, then you will also get the additional combination effect.
- lighstones, imperfect lightstones, and purified lightstones can be registered on the Central Market.
- Lightstones can be divided into four major types of effects. The effect of the lighstone will differ depending on its type.

Lightstone of Fire Offensive effects
Lightstone of Earth Defensive effects
Lightstone of Wind Special effects
Lightstone of Flora Life Skill effects

※ There is a special lightstone that is not included in the list above called the "Iridescent Lightstone." It gives you different effects depending on the combination of lightstones you have infused into your artifacts.
- For more details on lightstones and their effects, go to [Adventurer's Guide > Artifact/Lightstone > List of Lightstones].


How to Obtain Lightstones

● lighstones can be obtained through quests, defeating monsters, Dark Rifts, World Bosses, Boss Summon Scrolls, Guild Raids, through various Life Skill content like Gathering, as well as by using alchemy on "Imperfect Lightstones."
- "Imperfect Lightstones" can be obtained from quests, defeating monsters, Dark Rifts, World Bosses, Boss Summon Scrolls, Guild Raids, or through various Life Skill content like Gathering.
- For more details on how to obtain imperfect lightstones, go to [Adventurer's Guide > Artifact/Lightstone > Imperfect Lightstones].
- When Imperfect Lightstones are transformed into lightstones, they transform into a specific type of "Purified Lightstone" with their own effects according to a set probability.
1. Find Dalishain in any city or town to transform your imperfect lightstones.
2. Install an alchemy tool in your residence and perform alchemy with your imperfect lightstones. (Requires Alchemy Guru 1 or higher)
※ When you perform the alchemy yourself, there is a low chance that you can get an additional "purified lightstone" of the same type.
- You will need to open the purified lighstone to get one of the lightstones of the related type.
- You can perform alchemy via an alchemy tool installed in your residence by using the following materials (must be Alchemy Guru 1 or higher):

- Lightstone Extraction Tool is sold by blacksmith NPCs in each of the major cities and towns for 10,000,000 Silver.


● Lightstones infused into artifacts can be removed by pressing RMB on them in the Infusion UI.
- In this case, the lightstone will be destroyed.
● Lightstones infused into artifacts do not get destroyed upon the death of your character.

● Artifacts and lightstones infused into artifacts can be shared with another character via Item Copy.

- However, the copied equipment (artifacts) can be destroyed upon character death if the character has negative karma, like other gear.
● You cannot extract any infused lightstones on artifacts copied via the item copy function. You can only either remove or destroy them.

NEW & IMPROVEMENTS

ALL CLASSES 

Changes were made to monster "aggro" so that you can now summon the Black Spirit to accept and complete main quests or interact in monster zones more conveniently. Now, when you've taunted monsters, or are being attacked, and attempt to summon the Black Spirit, "aggro" will not be applied for a certain period of time and monsters will not attack you. With this update, you can conveniently accept and complete main quests, interact, and take breaks. (However, you can only summon the Black Spirit in a non-combat idle stance or combat idle stance. You cannot summon it during your character's attack motions.) We have initially applied this function up to the Valencia region because we thought it'd be more useful for new Adventurers or those of you who are starting to adapt to our game environment. We will consider gradually expanding this function to the high-end monster zones in the future if we can see with certainty that it isn't improperly used or abused.
● Improved so that your character doesn't taunt monsters in the Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia regions for a certain period of time when summoning the Black Spirit (/).
- This doesn't apply to party monster zones, Gatekeeper monsters, event monsters, Hunting monsters, or quest monsters.

● Sudden Decapitation - Fixed the issue where the skill's sound effects wouldn't play for certain attack motions with your sura katana.

ITEM

● Adjusted the damage formula to weigh the "Monster Damage Reduction" stat more heavily (in calculations for damage reduction).
The Extra AP Against Monsters and Monster Damage Reduction stats were particularly effective when facing monsters in PvE, and were also part of the Blackstar gear's core identity. Thus, we decided to slightly increase the efficiency of the Monster Damage Reduction stat, and plan on increasing the Monster Damage Reduction by +10 for the Blackstar Armor 2-Set Effect in the following week. Regarding Blackstar defense gear, we will continue making adjustments that are especially focused on the stats granted at the PEN (V) enhancement grade.

● Changed and unified Life Skill Mastery Increase Scroll, [Event] Item Collection Increase Scroll, etc. to simplify the crafting method of Life Skill Mastery Increase Scrolls and relevant items.

※ The "before" items you had in your possession were changed into "after" items and sent to your Mail (B).
Before After
[Event] Life Skill Mastery Increase Scroll
※ Pearl Inventory
Secret Book of Florin
※ Pearl Inventory
[Event] Item Collection Increase Scroll

- With this change, the boxes, quest rewards, Progression Pass rewards, event rewards, NPC exchange list rewards, etc. were changed to the "After" items shown in the chart. The relevant quest names and quest texts were also changed to describe items that were changed.
● Changed the names of the following items to display the effects more clearly.
- [Event] Extra Skill EXP Scroll → [Event] Extra Skill EXP Scroll (Temp)
- [Event] Extra Life EXP Scroll → [Event] Extra Life EXP Scroll (50%)
- [Event] Extra Life EXP Scroll → [Event] Extra Life EXP Scroll (10%)
- [Event] Extra Mount EXP Scroll → [Event] Extra Mount EXP Scroll (1 Hour)
- [Event] Extra Mount EXP Scroll → [Event] Extra Mount EXP Scroll (10 Hours)
- Premium Elixir Box → [Event] Premium Elixir Box
- Inventory +16 Expansion Coupon → [Event] Inventory +16 Expansion Coupon
- Megaphone → [Event] Megaphone
● Separated [Dark Knight] Sin Terrna Gloves from the [Dark Knight] Sin Terrna Armor.
- Added [Dark Knight] Sin Terrna Gloves to the outfit boxes that contain the [Dark Knight] Sin Terrna Armor.
* Adventurers who had the [Dark Knight] Sin Terrna Armor in their possession will find the [Dark Knight] Sin Terrna Gloves in their storage in Heidel.
● Separated [Mystic] Sin Terrna Gloves and Shoes from the [Mystic] Sin Terrna Armor.
- Added [Mystic] Sin Terrna Gloves and Shoes to the outfit boxes that contain the [Mystic] Sin Terrna Armor.
* Adventurers who had the [Mystic] Sin Terrna Armor in their possession will find the [Mystic] Sin Terrna Gloves and Shoes in their storage in Heidel.
● Improved to set the max number of scrolls within the chargeable time when converting scrolls into time via the Item Collection Increase Gauge UI.
● Improved to add the Gathering and Hunting Item Drop Rate increase effect applied via the scroll that exceeds 80% when using the Lucky and Spellbound Life Tools.
- Due to this improvement, we made changes so that the stats for the Item Drop Rate of normal, special, and rare Gathering resources, displayed on the Life Skill tab on the My Information (P) window when equipping a Lucky or Spellbound Life Tool, will now be displayed as the stats before equipping the Life Tool and not as 0%.
● Added to the item descriptions of certain matchlocks that you can use powerful attacks by pressing F when the Black Spirit's Rage is at 100% or higher.

 

MONSTER

The Burdens weighing down on the Ancient statues found in Gyfin Rhasia Temple Underground have grown heavier.
The entire loot system for defeating Gyfin Rhasia Decimators and Ancient statues entangled with Fragments of Burden has been changed, along with the damage dealt to awakened Ancient statues and when attacking more than two Ancient statues entangled with Burdens.
In addition, you can now obtain even more loot from defeating and statues, as we have increased the amount of loot obtained from Gyfin Rhasia Decimators and the loot drop chance for Butchers of Gyfin Rhasia.
● Gyfin Rhasia Decimators have now succumbed to the Burdens of "Anger", "Denial", and "Resolve" Ancient statues.
- If you defeat a Burdened Ancient statue first, this will cause any Gyfin Rhasia Decimators that spawned near such statues to also be defeated, and you will also be able to obtain their loot instantaneously.
Ex) If an "Anger" Gyfin Rhasia Crusher was defeated before the Gyfin Rhasia Decimators, all Gyfin Rhasia Decimators will also be defeated, and you will be able to obtain all the loot of those Decimators that had spawned near the "Anger" Ancient statue. However, you will not be able to obtain the loot of Decimators that had spawned near "Resolve"or "Denial" statues.
"Anger", "Denial", and "Resolve" Ancient statues have become hardened by bearing their Burdens over a long period of time.
- Ancient statues will now take reduced damage while awakening.
"Anger", "Denial", and "Resolve" Ancient statues will now have their Burdens become entangled more fiercely when two or more gather.
- Ancient statues with entangled Burdens will take additionally reduced damage.
● Changed when two or more "Anger", "Denial", and "Resolve" Ancient statues have gathered to now only grant the loot of a defeated Ancient statue that bears the same Burden.
Ex) While "Anger" and "Denial" Ancient statues are both awakened, if you defeat the "Anger" statue first, you will only be able to obtain the loot from the "Fragment of Anger" Gyfin Rhasia Crusher, and not the "Fragment of Denial" Gyfin Rhasia Crusher.
● Changed the "Anger", "Denial", and "Resolve" Burdens to remain for a certain period of time near the bodies of Ancient statues after you defeat them.
- Changed the Burden buff effects to now be applied after an Invincibility effect has faded from your character if a skill that granted said effect was used at the moment you defeated the Ancient statue.
● The Burden of Despair entangling the Gyfin Rhasia Decimator has grown heavier as well.
- Now more "Fragment of Despair" Gyfin Rhasia Decimators will appear from "Despair" Gyfin Rhasia Decimator.
● Increased the junk loot drop chance and amount upon defeating the "Ruinous"Butcher of Gyfin Rhasia.
● Fixed the issue where the Burn damage inflicted from Syca's heat in Atoraxxion: Sycrakea was displayed in the list of buff effects.
● Changed the DP increase/reduction effect icons to be displayed more clearly on monsters.
- DP increased:
- DP reduced:
● Increased the time that animal corpses remain after Hunting by x1.5 so that you can Butcher them more conveniently. 

NPC, BACKGROUND, SOUND

● Improved so that you can skip cutscenes via Interaction (Y) without using the Gamepad UI in Gamepad UI mode.

 

QUEST & KNOWLEDGE

We added recurring quests for each Life Skill to reflect the request we received from our Adventurers during the last CalpheON Ball regarding improvements on Life Skills. The items naturally obtainable from each Life Skill for Adventurers who enjoy our Life Skill contents were set as quest objectives to lessen the burden of proceeding with quests. Also, our focus was on providing visible objectives. Life EXP useful for progression and scrolls that will make playing through Life Skills more enjoyable are included in rewards. We thank our Adventurers who've enjoyed our Life Skill content due to the previous improvements made to Life Skills. We will continue making our efforts to make Life Skills easier and more convenient to approach for many of our Adventurers.
● Chief Valentine of Florin's twin apprentices, Liana and Ludowig, have appeared in major cities and small towns near where Adventurers actively work on Life Skills to seek out materials they need for their research.
- Help them with their research to obtain items useful in Life Skill activities and Life EXP helpful for progression.
- You can accept weekly quests from the NPC Liana located in major cities.
