【Blackstar, Star’s End】

  • New region (Star’s End) has been added to the Northern West Calpheon.

- This new place is located in the Western of Calpheon City where it is covered by mysterious fog. You must be careful as there are tons of dangerous monsters existing within the region.

- New node manager NPC has been added to Star’s End with new available knowledge.

  • The dominators of the Northern West Calpheon has appeared from the unveiled region which has been hidden in mystery for a long time.

- Apostle of Immorality absorbs dark energy from Star’s End upon death and turns into Apostle of Malevolence at a certain chance.

- Apostle of Malevolence is stronger than other monsters and it would disappear if not defeated within 5 minutes after its appearance.

- Every new and existing Adventurer will be given a fair chance to obtain this new Blackstar weapon which is known as the best item for Adventurers who want to become stronger.

- However, Blackstar weapon has been designed with intention to maintain the existing weapon’s value as much as possible. Adventurers can now choose one of the ways to become stronger by enhancing existing weapon with Caphras stone or enhancing Blackstar weapon.

- Blackstar is a new challenge for the future update.

- Blackstar Main Weapon consumes 1 Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Weapon) for enhancement from 0 to +15.

- Blackstar Main Weapon consumes 1 Pure Magical Black Stone for enhancement from PRI to PEN.

Those who already completed the requirement quests can obtain the knowledge by interacting with NPC Tulem.

- Crafting Blackstar Main Weapon quest can only be completed once per character.

  • Fixed the issue where abnormal outlines appeared around crops that were selected while new crops were being placed in a fence garden.
  • Fall damage will no longer apply in the Red Battlefield.

[Developer's Comment]

→ It's been quite inconvenient as you had to use a Potion to recover your HP due to the falling damage.

This will be resolved after today's update, and you will no longer need to suffer from taking falling damage in Red Battlefield helping you to focus more on the combat.


【ALL CLASSES】

  • A key guide will now appear when your character is using a Fortress Gate Lever.

- A key guide will now appear when your character is using a ladder.

  • The invincible effect that is applied when your character makes a cheering motion after getting a high-grade item will now only apply for PvE only.

[Developer's Comment]

Characters would make a cheering motion when obtaining a high grade item, and they would become invincible during the cheering motion while the character was fighting the monsters.

However, we decided that this invincibility effect should only be applied in PvE since this can be used as an exploit during PvP which was not what we intended.

Now the invincible effect during the cheering motion will be effective only for PvE.

- You can restore them through a legendary NPC and an Old Book located somewhere in the Black Desert world.

- When restoration is successful, the icons for each item will change.

- The items which are successfully restored can be mixed and combined with the original items.

[Developer's Comment]

→ The Archaeologist's Map and Lafi Bedmountain's Upgraded Compass take a lot of time and effort to complete. Though many adventurers wanted more clear Crafting hints, it was difficult to implement any changes, considering all the time and effort the past adventurers went through to complete these items.

Also, in the past, it the combination of the items were important to complete the items, yet now it is more focused on obtaining each piece of the item. Therefore we had to be very careful about making any changes. After considering many different options, we decided to make each item piece identifiable through their different shapes.


  • Fixed the issue where the hair would occasionally appear abnormal when equipping and unequipping equipment which has hair on it.
  • Added Marni's Stone (Stone Waragon) and Marni's Stone II (Stone Waragon)

- These items can be purchased from Wacky Toshi.

- Just like the Marni's Stones from before, you can exchange them from Wacky Toshi with EXP after defeating monsters.

  • Silver Embroidered items now have descriptions which explain how to enhance.
  • The Remnants of the Rift can now be obtained from the Golden Treasure Chest, which randomly appears in Black Desert.
  • You can now obtain the Mass of Pure Magic when harvesting crops which grow from planting Magical Seeds and Mysterious Seeds in the garden.

- You will have a low chance to obtain it through harvesting the crops when they are at 100% or higher growth.

  • You can obtain 5 Mass of Pure Magic by Manufacturing 1 Remnants of the Rift and 1 Black Spirit's Claw.


【Monsters】

● Mischievous Raccoon would appear all around world during the event period except Valencia region.
- Mischievous Raccoon can be defeated with Matchlock.
- You can obtain Spirit Pouch of Ferocious Beast as a reward

 

【Mount】

  • Fixed the issue where using the Transport function to move a character on a wagon to Heidel would get the wagon stuck at the stable there.

- Because of this, when you take out your mount from the stable in Heidel now the mount will appear closer to the road than the stable.

[Developer's Comment]

→ We have made an improvement so that mount will now appear on the road or on the street so that it will no longer get stuck in the building when you summon your mount from the Heidel Stable or arrive the town via transporting a character.


  • You can no longer delete or change courser skills from a courser horse.

- The skill, elegance and strength stats (which are needed for to awaken a courser) of a Tier 8 courser will now reset when it is bought from a horse market.

 

【NPC, Background, Sound】

  • Shakatu is too busy now, so you can now exchange the [Event] Shakatu's Seal through NPC Dellus, who is Shakatu's right-hand man.

-  Dellus is near Shakatu.

  • Fixed the issue where NPC around the Great Library of Calpheon would disappear when greeted by a lord character.
  • Fixed the issue where islands which do not exist would be displayed in certain areas of the World Map (M)
  • Fixed the geographical features of certain areas inside the sea near the port of Arehaza.
  • Fixed the issue where certain parts of the Coral Wardrobe did not look natural.
  • Fixed the issue where characters could not get out of certain areas of Manshaum Forest.
  • The completion NPC for the [Returning] Crio's Welcome quest (for returning adventurers) will now be from the same Crio NPC you accept the quest from, instead of Crio who appears from the sea. This is to avoid confusion.

- While you are going through the quest, Crio will not appear from the sea.

  • Description about White Wolf Boss (valid time before the moster disappears) has been fixed on the quest summary of 'Do or Die'.
  • The dialogue for the Examine the Ancient Artifact quest has been changed to better suit the background of the quest.

- The conditions for the button for obtaining Contribution EXP being displayed for exchanging the Balenos Defense Token from Cliff at Western Guard Camp has been changed like the following.

  • You can now search for Furniture Dealer Vatputa of Valencia City by using the Search NPC feature.
  • Quests related to Protty Cave and Sycraia Underwater Ruins will now be displayed within the Recommended tab of the Quest (O) window.

  • The following daily quest has been added to the Waragon Nest region in Valencia.

- [Daily] Moria's Fervor for Research

  • A guild mission to defeat Waragons has been added.

- The villagers of Valencia need help with all the Stone Waragons that became de-petrified.

  • Fixed the issue where it was sometimes impossible to return back to your original location after being transported during the main questline to the Ancient Stone Chamber in Balenos.
  • Fixed the issue where the button to hand over Special Wheat Crate to Norma Leight during the quest [Farming Lv. 30] The Best Wheat Farm looked like a button to gain knowledge.

【UI】

  • Fixed the issue where the success area in minigames would not be normal.
  • When a worker cannot be recovered, the explanation describing the status will now be properly displayed like the following:

- The Worker's stamina is already at max.

  • The Guild Mark and Guild Name will no longer overlap when changing the size of the chat window after using the Promote Guild feature.
  • Fixed the error message which is displayed when you take out a mount in certain situations.
  • When using the Villa Scroll at a Campsite, you can now select Silver from either the Inventory or from the Storage.

[Developer's Comment]

→ So far you could only use the Villa Scroll at a Campsite with silvers stored in your warehouse nearby.

Since the silver weight in inventory, we realized many Adventurers carry silvers in character inventory these days.

Now you can use the Villa Scroll anywhere at anytime if you have enough silvers in your inventory.

  • Fixed the issue where the Acquire All button would be marked as "R" from the Get Item window even after changing the interaction key from the game settings.

【System】

  • You can now collect enclosed items and silver from the Mailbox (B) even when in combat areas.
  • Added a feature which allows you to hide Campsites which belong to other adventurers.

- However, the Campsites will not be hidden when adventurers are lying down on the Campsites.

[Developer's Comment]

→ As we considered implementing the patch to not allow Campsites to be installed where boss monsters spawn, we decided to fundamentally resolve the issue and also minimize any inconvenience adventurers may face. Our next goal related to improvements to how the Campsites are installed is to minimize the inconvenience adventurers may face when trying to install them in areas which are difficult to install due to geographical issues including hilly areas.


  • When leveling up a Life Skill or enhancing an equipment while in Privacy Mode, a notification message will now be displayed on the screens of guild members.

[Developer's Comment]

→ The Privacy Mode has been partially implemented with the intention not to negatively affect the activity of community, especially amongst guild members.

We added a new option you can select that the notification message will no longer be displayed to other guild members on Privacy Mode when you want to be totally alone to focus on game play.


  • Fixed the issue where the camera movement would be unnatural when closing up to the face in the Customization (F4) window.
  • Fixed  the issue where the game client would occasionally shut down when equipping mount equipment.

 

We hope you enjoy your time in Black Desert,

Thank you.
