MAJOR UPDATES - Blackstar Awakening Weapon

● Added Blackstar Awakening Weapon crafting quests.

- The Blackstar Awakening Weapon crafting quests do not involve excavating Star's End with the archaeologist Martha Kiyen as the existing Blackstar gear quests do, but rather follows a different storyline of another faction seeking to uncover the secrets behind Star's End.

- You can complete the Blackstar Awakening Weapon crafting quest series once per character.

- To start the Blackstar Awakening Weapon quest, you will need the Remnants of the Rift, which has a low chance to drop from Dark Rifts, and The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah knowledge. In addition, to craft the Blackstar Awakening Weapon, you will also require the Specter's Energy, a special ingredient which rarely drops from monsters all over the world of Black Desert, with a slightly higher chance to drop from monsters in Thornwood Forest.

- To learn The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah knowledge, you will require a Lv. 56 or higher character who has already completed the revamped Mediah Main Quest series, then accept and complete the The Three Blacksmiths quest from Tulem. Adventurers who've previously completed the quest can interact with Tulem to gain the knowledge.

- This quest series has a crossroads quest in its middle portion. Veteran adventurers can choose to face a mighty boss immediately, while normal adventurers can opt for a weakened version of the boss to complete the quest.

- Changed the Blackstar gear's final quest from Dorin Morgrim to no longer be carried out in tandem with this quest series.

 

 

 

 

● You can improve your Blackstar Awakening Weapon with the Inverted Heart of Garmoth or Heart of Karanda (just like you can for Dandelion and Dragonslayer Awakening Weapons).
