The main quests in Balenos, the warm hometown of adventurers, will be renewed. Full voice acting cutscenes, appearance improvements of the main characters, and enhanced directing have been added, and the quest line has been greatly reorganized. In order to make it easier for new adventurers to familiarize themselves with Black Desert and understand the world view, we have prepared a tutorial for existing adventurers to experience the new Balenos main quest.
Refining existing content is as important as adding new content, so we will continue to work hard to improve it.
  • Beginning of adventure, Balenos main quest has been reorganized with full voice acting, cutscenes, and clearer characters and groups.
    • After the tutorial of traversing the desert with Illezra is over, you can start immediately in either [Comb of the Ancients] or [Mountain of Endless Winter].
    • ※ The characters that started with “Mountain of Endless Winter” can be continued after completing “Mountain of Endless Winter” “Mediah Tour”, “Character Succession/Awakening”, and Skill Preset Quest are completed. (In the case of new character Drakania, after Succession only)
    • You can check the reorganized list of main quests through the quest list window (O) – the main quest tab “[Balenos] One who breaks the chains of ghosts”.
    • According to the reorganized setting, some of the knowledge related to the Balenos area has been modified and newly added.
    • The reorganized Balenos main quest consists of the following three subdivided stories. 
    • In this reorganized Balenos main quest, you can increase amity by adventure with the new main NPCs.
    • There are various branch quests in the reorganized Balenos main quest, and the results may vary depending on the choices of adventurers.

※ Adventurers who are in the process of the existing Balenos main quest will continue the existing main quest and cannot proceed with the reorganized main quest.
※ Seasonal characters who have completed [Pet] Bariz’s Junide can proceed with the simplified branch quest by completing the quest ‘[Balenos] Dark Clouds Over the Village’ in the reorganized main quest.

Calpheon Elvia – Quint Hill

 

The realms of Calpheon Elvia introduced in CalpheON Episode 2 will be revealed one at a time. Starting with Quint Hill this week, it will be applied to the official server after all hunting grounds are revealed. Hadum, who consumed Serendia, summoned a black sun blazing with the energy of curse and destruction to the Calpheon area. As Elvia’s realm was activated in Calpheon, the affected monsters became much more ferocious and powerful. In the realm of Calpheon Elvia, various effects occur according to the changing weather due to the darkness of the black sun, and we are preparing to add newness to the battle.

  • Hadum’s encroachment amplifies the ancient power of the trolls of Quint Hill.
    • Through the ancient power, the source of persistent vitality, the trolls can assimilate into nature and accumulate vitality.



Recommended Attack / Defense Hunting ground information
Recommended Attack Power: 310
Recommended Defense: 400
The trolls of Quint Hill are absorbed into nature and are in a ‘petrified’ state that cannot be attacked, and only some trolls wake up and protect the surroundings of the ‘ancient trolls’ with ancient powers.

Defeating all the trolls guarding the ancient troll will awaken the ancient troll from the petrified state.

The ancient troll can overcome death once by consuming the strength (health) accumulated over a long period of time, and will exert powerful resilience.
When the ancient troll overcomes death, the surrounding petrified trolls wake up in response to their powerful vitality.

The petrified troll shaman loses his accumulated health and cannot be awakened, and when destroyed, explodes with an area of energy that transforms nearby trolls into an attackable petrified state.

  • The terrible darkness of the Black Sun has begun to pollute the skies of Calpheon Elvia.
    • When the beings walking in Calpheon Elvia’s realm disappear, their dark energy gathers and colors the sky.
    • The sky dyed with the darkness of the black sun invites powerful beings and causes various phenomena.

Elixir Cooldown reduced

  • The cooldown of Elixir, Amplifier, and Damage Reduction items has been reduced from 10 seconds to 1 second.
