Major Updates - Mystic Succession

  • Added Succession for Mystic.

- You can accept the quest "[Mystic Succession] Discussing Endurance" from Black Spirit after completing the awakening quests.

- The succession quest can also be found in "Quests" (O) under the "Suggestions" tab.

- You will learn the skill "Mystic's Force" through the succession quests. It enables you to be even more powerful with your Gauntlet and Vambrace.

- You cannot use the Cestus after completing Succession.

- Added the "Succession" tab in the Skill window (K).

- Skills in the Succession tab are affected by the AP of your main weapons and awakening weapons.

- You can use the skills both in the "Main" tab and the skills in the "Succession" tab at the same time.

- You cannot use skills in the "Succession" tab to learn Absolute skills.

- You can use skills outside of the "Succession" tab to learn Absolute skills.

- You must learn the Preceding Skills in the "Main" tab to learn the skills in the "Succession" tab.

- You can change between Succession/Awakening by resetting your skills.

- You can change from Succession to Awakening by resetting your skills to unlearn the skill "Mystic's Force".

- You can change from Awakening to Succession by resetting your skills to learn the skill "Mystic's Force".

 The Mystic's Succession allows for combos that flow like water, as well as unleashing powerful strikes after amassing enough Mystic's Force.

Upon first entering combat, you will need to combo several skills until you gather enough Mystic's Force, yet once a certain level of skills have been comboed, you will start to recover Mystic's Force at an explosive rate. Mystic at this state will not only be able to combo skills more freely, but also be able to aggressively dish out Mystic's attacks by consuming Martial Spirit Shards.

- You can change from Awakening to Succession by resetting your skills to learn the skill "Striker's Vigor".

 Originally, the Striker and Mystic Succession were supposed to be released together last week. However, based on the feedback we received from Adventurers who participated in the Global Labs, we delayed the final release to polish the classes to be more enjoyable and impressive. Thus, we extend our deepest apologies to all Adventurers who eagerly waited for the Striker and Mystic Successions.

 

 

Major Updates - Gyfin Rhasia Temple Revamp

  • As the conflict between Ganelle and Ahib deepens, so too rises the level of danger at the Gyfin Rhasia Temple.

- Majority of Gyfin Rhasia Statue of Earth was changed from passive to aggressive.

- Revamped Gyfin Rhasia Temple to a recommended 270 AP hunting ground.

- Buffed monsters of Gyfin Rhasia Temple.

→ Increased HP +180%, AP +7%, DP +8% 

- Changed majority of Gyfin Rhasia Statue of Earth monsters to be aggressive.

- Reduced time of Gyfin Rhasia Temple monsters to enter combat by 30%.

- Reduced combat EXP by 50%, increased skill EXP by 100% of Gyfin Rhasia Temple monsters.

  • Increased number of junk and other items dropped by Gyfin Rhasia Temple monsters as follows.

Gyfin Rhasia Temple was Black Desert's first 5-person coop hunting ground introduced in Kamasylvia - Part II.

 The area was initally recommended for 240 AP, which was high at the time. It quickly become one of Black Desert's beloved yet challenging hunting grounds as Adventurers who dared challenge the high level of difficulty could get "Tungrad Belt" for their troubles.

Yet the treacherous terrain, uneven distribution of monsters, and a rather inconvenient route made it inefficient to defeat monsters in without a complete understanding of the region.

In addition, more Adventurers would brave the Mirumok Ruins when it was later revamped as a 3-person party area, which only furthered the decline in those traveling to Gyfin Rhasia.

 

Gyfin Rhasia Temple got a major makeover and now recommends 270 AP.

Parties without experienced Adventurers can now enjoy defeating monsters in the region as the monsters are much stronger, greater in number, and adjusted the distribution of monsters and their patrol routes accordingly.

The density of monsters placed increased greatly and their respawn time was decreased. The monsters' reaction times were improved to increase the routes' efficiency and provide a more enjoyable experience. Also, item drop rates of monsters have been increased accordingly.

However, due to Gyfin Rhasia Temple monsters boasting the highest amount of combat EXP in Black Desert, the amount of combat EXP gained was reduced accordingly as their number increased. On the plus side, the amount of skill EXP gained was increased.

In addition, with the increased item collection increase scroll effect, we hope more Adventurers will enjoy defeating monsters here.

 

 

Major Updates - Lahn Succession Improvements

  • Increased PvP damage of Prime: Blooming Nether Flower by about 36%.
  • Increased PvP damage of Prime: Salp'uri Purge by about 21%.
  • Changed character's moving direction to follow the camera when rotated during the 1st Striding Slash hit of Prime: Furious Chase.
  • Increased maximum number of hits applicable by Prime: Bleeding Hearts.
  • Fixed fall damage reduction and movement speed increase buff to apply correctly when using Nimbus Stride right after comboing off Prime: Spring Breeze or a gliding skill.
  • Increased movement speed of other skills comboed after Prime: Primrose Sprint.
  • Doubled stamina reduction speed during gliding movement after Prime: Spring Breeze or Prime: Primrose Sprint.

 Lahn Succession is centered on combo skills founded in mobility and stability. However, we decided that to maintain these characteristics we first needed to adjust the damage of several skills.

So we first increased PvP damage of Prime: Blooming Nether Flower and Prime: Salp'uri Purge.

We changed Prime: Bleeding Hearts from a forward movement-type attack to a concentrated attack type, effectively reducing the attack range but allowing for much greater damage to inflicted in the attack area.
