MAJOR UPDATES - Find My Item function

As various classes and regions have been released, the world of Black Desert has grown much broader. To make it easier for Adventurers to check the locations of items wherever they may be in the world, we have added the “Find My Item” function.

This function allows Adventurers to simultaneously search across their Family’s Storage, Central Market warehouse, inventories, equipped gear, etc. all at once.

This function can be found from the ESC menu or with the search button in your Storage. We hope this adds convenience to your adventures.

● Added the Find My Item function.
- The Find My Item function is convenient to check the equipped gear, Silver and items across all Inventory, Storage, and Central Market warehouses.
- This function can be found by going to the (ESC) Menu - F2 - Find My Item or through the search function in your Storage.

● You can check the amount of Silver that your Family has when searching for "Silver" via Find My Item.

● Added a button to "View Inventory" where you can log into the currently-viewed character's inventory.




● Improved the facial expressions of the following classes to appear more natural when idle for both in and out of combat, or while guarding.
- Warrior, Valkyrie, Ranger, Witch, Kunoichi, Mystic, Archer, Nova


● Evasion (II to III)
- Improved to now activate "Invincible at the start of the skill" when used laterally.

● Black Spirit: Echo Pierce
- Fixed the issue where the attack effect wasn't being displayed during the skill.


● Yoke of Ordeal (I to III)
- Fixed the skill description to match the actual attack area.
* Attack 1 damage: 826% / 1099% / 1339% x 1, max 6 hits
* Attack 2 damage 826% / 1099% / 1339% x 1, max 6 hits

● Flow: Gorr Roll
- Fixed the skill description to match the actual attack area.
* Attack damage 765% x 1, max 12 hits


● Marked Bloom
- Fixed the issue where "normal damage" instead of "arrow damage" was being applied for PvE when used during cooldown.



Today's update brings about several changes to Hashshin for PvP. The main reason for this was to strengthen the unique traits of his Succession.
First off, we've bolstered the "assassin"-like PvP playstyle which utilizes sand tornados. We added a Succession-exclusive version of Hourglass of Defiance, and Arid Assault will now automatically save your character's current location whenever it's used, thus allowing you to return to the saved location by pressing the F key. (You will still be able to manually save the return location as before as well.) Also, whenever you return to a saved location, you will activate Rupture's explosive damage, and using Arid Assault will create sand tornados in the location the skill was used, creating more opportunities to confuse your foes.

We've also administered slight changes to his defensive effects as well.
First, Prime: Dune Slash attacks no longer apply the Forward Guard effect, which was moved to now apply before the attack motion of the more popular Prime: Aal's Dominion. Quicksand's last attack will now only apply the Knockdown effect for PvE, while Piercing Tornado will now gain the Super Armor effect during use, thus allowing for safer openings with the skill. Chosen Blade will no longer apply Stiffness but also gains Super Armor to help create safer combo opportunities.

Lastly, we've applied changes to dealing and taking damage.
Hashashin was, on average, the class with the lowest damage ratio compared to other classes. Therefore, the better geared you were, the sturdier you became thanks to Evasion Rate increase buffs from skills (Sand Warp) and passives. This made us very wary of increasing Hashashin's AP or Accuracy altogether. However, many of our Hashashin Adventurers gave us vocal feedback to improve the class's offensive capabilities, so we decided to make adjustments accordingly. In conclusion, what we came up with was to amplify the Hashashin's utility via the sand tornado mechanic, improve some of his defensive effects and PvP damage, and in return, the Hashashin's incoming damage ratio taken when attacked by other classes was increased by approximately 3.25% on average.

※ You can find the damage ratios of each class in PvP through the Adventurer's Guide - [Class Damage Ratio].

- Changed the cooldown: 30 sec/30 sec/30 sec → 30 sec/27 sec/25 sec

● Hourglass of Death
- Changed the landing motion to appear more natural.

Oh, right! The Gold Bars!

Gold Bar buffs have already been improved once in the previous update. Even now, the act of handing over the Gold Bar to receive the buff was symbolic, like a ritual to receive a blessing.

The Last Ritual quest is the climatic highlight of the Drieghan main questline where you face off against Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon herself. However, proceeding with this questline as Drakania would have you face off against the Dragon alone without the aid of the Sherekhan, who by lore were antagonistic to all Dragons. While we intentially raised the difficulty level for the class, we saw that many new Adventurers were struggling to complete it alone. Therefore, we decided to adjust the difficulty level of The Last Ritual quest for all Drakania to appropriate levels.
● Adjusted the difficulty level of the Drieghan main quest "The Last Ritual" for Drakania.
