  •  The Witch and Wizard classes are rooted in similar succession skills, yet we thought long and hard on how to differentiate their play style by changing how their skills are used and bring about an enjoyable experience as well. 

    Upon learning the Elemental Flow skill, the Wizard inputs commands continuously after using one skill, where the following skill occurs without casting motion thereby allowing for a constant barrage of great damage. In contrast, the Witch Succession has casting motions per each skill input yet can use Magical Evasion skills during the casting motion, each skill inflicts devastating damage and can continue dealing extra damage via Prime: Multiple Magic Arrows after using a skill. Thus, during internal testing we found the average damage dealt by the Witch to be recorded slightly lower than the Wizard, and therefore we decided to apply a slight damage increase to the Witch.

    However, the fact that the Witch's succession skill damage is higher even though they are the same skill, and compared to the Witch's Elemental Flow effect the Wizard does not seem to appear to be any more unique led to many Wizard adventurers to voice their concern. Then, regarding last week's update to the Black Desert Global Lab, where the Witch succession saw immediate activation of the next succession skills upon being used right after magical evasion, led to others declaring that the Wizard succession had not clearly lost its uniqueness. To reflect the opinions of Witch and Wizard adventurers, we decided to minimize the difference between the Witch and Wizard successions, and settled on allowing only one unique characteristic per class. First, we decided to equalize the damage amounts of Witch and Wizard succession skills, maintain the combo system of utilizing magical evasion and multiple magic arrows, and remove the Teleport prerequisite for the Wizard's Ultimate: Teleport, thereby increasing his convenience of use. Second, we shortened the casting motion of lightning skills for both the Witch and Wizard. Upon succession, both classes are unable to utilize sage skills, which ended up breaking the flow of combos in between lightning skills. We felt that this was a bigger issue compared to being unable to use Sage's Memory, therefore we decided to shorten the casting motion of all lightning skills for the Wizard and Witch.

    We will continue to look over the various opinions sent in by all adventurers, and strive to develop the character towards a more enjoyable experience.

  • Changed the cost of supplying Cannonballs to Big Ships from 10,000 silver per shot to 1,000 silver per shot.
  •  We hope for all adventurers to be able to enjoy hunting Great Ocean monsters.

    Defeating Great Ocean monsters via Big Ships requires not only rations but a great deal of investment in the ship's durability and cannonball supply. Many adventurers who have yet to take their chances in helming their own ship may have felt even more pressure to take on this endeavor. Thus we reduced the supply cost of Big Ship Cannonballs by 1/10 the original to relieve some of that pressure.

Fixed the issue of incorrect number of rations being used instead of the amount listed in the description while using the BreezySail skill on Big Ships.
