| QUEST & KNOWLEDGE

  • ● Reworked quest reward items.

There were two major points that we focused on as we reworked the rewards for main quests.

 

The two points were to make it possible for new adventurers to obtain equipment they needed at suitable points in the game, and to adjust the rewards to be actually helpful in reference to the current requirements in the game.

There are multiple ways for Adventurers to obtain items, consumables, and equipment in Black Desert. These items are meant to be used as Adventurers get familiar with the game. However, a large portion of items and equipment were usually available as rewards from sub-quests. As a result, the limited availability of these rewards proved to be a daunting task and difficult for new Adventurers as these quests had various pre-requisites to accept them.

So the main quest rewards were improved and made more accessible for new Adventurers. Now anyone can get appropriate equipment throughout their progression just by following the main quests. This will equip Adventurers with the necessary optimal gear and make it easier to explore new hunting grounds.

The equipment obtained from quests can now be enhanced as well. For the accessories, they will stay intact even in the event the enhancement fails. The only penalty is that their max durability will decrease when an enhancement attempt fails. We believe the new change will reduce the difficulties involved in enhancing items. You can also gradually obtain enhancement material by completing the daily quests.

The equipment reward which was originally from ADV Support quests (Quest List (O) -> Suggested -> ADV Support quests) can now be obtained from completing the main quests.

For quests offering older equipment, the equipment has been replaced with newer equipment that has similar stats. 

As a result, some of the quest names were also changed in accordance to that.
