Hello, Adventurers!

This is the MMORPG, Black Desert.


In today’s GM Note, we’ll talk about the latest changes to Pearl costume set effects.


Previously, if you wanted a costume set effect applied to your character, you had to wear pieces from the same set.

So, if you wanted to customize your style by mixing and matching sets, you had to give up the set effect, or if you wanted the set effect, you had to give up on your style.


▲Now you can mix and match pieces from other sets!


But now, you can toss those worries away!

After the update, you’ll be able to equip Pearl costume pieces from different sets without losing the set effect.


Not only will you be able to keep the set effect from mixing costume sets, you’ll still be able to keep the effect bonus from each individual costume slot.

Additionally, now you’ll receive set effects from event items such as the Purnado set and hair accessories as well.




■ Be a trendsetter with new costume combinations!


Combining the Eternal Snow Helmet and Puff Mini Armor is very popular among many Adventurers. Now with this update, you can try mixing and matching different sets you want as shown below.

■ Let’s check out the new costume set effects!


The changes will only apply to regular non-functional costumes. If you are receiving effects from functional costumes (such as the Venecil set, Da-Dum Da-Dum set, Venia Riding Attire set, etc), equipping 4 pieces of another costume set will not give you the additional set effect (the only exception to this rule is the Canape set).


There are 8 different slots for Pearl costume pieces. After the update, set effects will be applied based on the total number of costume pieces worn and not by where the piece is equipped.


Costume Pieces

Set Effect

4 Pieces

Combat EXP +10%

6 Pieces

Skill EXP +10%

8 Pieces

Death Penalty -10%

Durability Reduction Resistance +10%



Currently it’s possible to buy individual pieces of a costume set from the Pearl Shop.

If you didn’t already know, you can buy only the particular piece you need instead of purchasing the whole set.


Are you excited for the new costume set effect changes?

Now that you know, you can go shopping for that perfect style that you’ve always wanted.


See you next time.

Thank you.
