Hello, Adventurers.

This is The MMORPG, Black Desert.

 

We’d like to announce the updates made to the Black Desert as of 2019, August 14th.

(Patch volume approx. 371.75 MB)

 

※ For the details, please refer to the contents below. 

 


Major Updates - Wagon Exclusive Trade Goods

  • Trade Goods exclusive Wagon (except expirable goods) has been added.

- Trade Wagon can deliver trade goods safely, but it would cost about 3.1 times than regular transport. 

Now you can transport Trade Goods across long distances.

However, this wagon costs more than the usual to operate, so that those who still carry around a wagon or miniature elephant full of trade goods themselves could continue to enjoy their journeys.

“Fish Bones” and “Tattered Boots” will be available for trading for “Crio’s Fishing Chair” once the Life Skill revamp is updated later down the road. Please note that “Crio’s Fishing Chair” is currently unavailable. 

Auto Fishing was greatly improved by adding the feature where you could choose to discard fish according to their grade.

However, this also caused unwanted items to pile up in your inventory.

To resolve this, we've added traders so you can make use of these items for Fishing, Courser Training, Contribution, and etc.

We will do our best to keep you updated for such improvements on convenient features.

Changed the chance of acquiring the Golden Mirage item to be lower.

|  MOUNT 

  • Fixed the issue where the damage of Charge and Fore Chop of all Dream Horses were affected differently depending on the mounted character.

Also fixed the issue where the damage of Dark Flame Steps and Dark Sprint of Dream Doom were affected differently depending on the mounted character.

[Developer's Comment]

→ Unlike other mounts, the damage of horse skills is affected by the AP of the mounted character. This is so that your horse will get stronger as your character grows.

This caused the damage to vary depending on which character type was mounted (melee, ranged, caster), hence the fix has been applied through this week’s update.
