Node War Changes

  • Node wars have been reorganized into territorial disputes.
    • The node war, which was held around a specific node selected for each day of the week, will now proceed in their <Territory Unit>. For example, on Monday, all nodes in Balenos, and on Tuesdays, all nodes in Serendia are held.
    • A <Start Node> is set in each territory. If you participated in the first node war and captured a node, you must participate in this starting node battle. After a successful capture, you can gradually expand your power to other nodes connected to the occupied area.
    • For example, if Guild A occupies the starting point of <Balenos Forest>, in the next node war, you can challenge the connected node <Bartali Farm>.
    • If Guild A has captured <Balenos Forest> and is challenging <Bartali Farm>,  Guild B can challenge all nodes that Guild A is occupying or attacking. As a result, your attack and defense strategy becomes very important.
    • As the entire territory has been changed to a node battle area, participants can now battle with each other anywhere in the Black Desert World. However, safe areas are still excluded from this rule.
    • The maximum number of nodes that a guild can occupy in a territory is 10.
    • ※ For the reorganized content, a separate video guide will be produced and provided to help you understand more.
    • You can enjoy the node war in Kamasylvia, a land that preserves the natural beauty. You can experience new battles with guild members in a terrain that you have never experienced before, such as vast grasslands, dense forests, and ancient ruins.
    • The existing concept of ‘tiers’ will be maintained, and the entire area of ​​Balenos will be changed to tier 1 beginner.
    • The number of nodes, tiers, and taxes for each territory have been readjusted.

  • As a War Hero, the way to participate in node war/siege war has been changed.
    • Now each territory and node has a ‘Maximum Score’ to receive the War Heroes
    • This score is according to the equipment of the adventurer who wants to participate, and the points sum cannot to exceed the maximum allowed.
    • Guilds in possession of the territory have been changed so that they can receive War Heroes.
  • Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia have been changed so that one guild can control multiple territories at once.

  • Exclusive equipment and accessories that can be purchased (guild funds) for the guild leader of the guild that have won the siege and node battles have been added.
  • This exclusive equipment and accessories are for a 7-day period, and only the guild leader who has succeeded in the 2nd tier or higher can acquire them (select 1).

The node war will be reorganized into a new shape.

The reorganization focused on two main topics. One is to add strategic options to participation in node battles so that various battle patterns can unfold, and the other is to increase loot that can intensify your desire for victory.

As the method of occupying the node has been changed to a sort of ‘eat the ground’ rule, guilds with a larger number of members can benefit greatly through gradual expansion. On the other hand, we tried to compensate the imbalance according to the size of the guild as much as possible by allowing guilds with a somewhat insufficient number of people to take advantage of sufficient gaps through strategic selection. In particular, since all lands in the estate are now node battle areas, the limit on the number of participants will be lifted at all nodes except for tier 1. However, this part will be adjusted in response to the opinions of global adventurers. Along with this, the total number of nodes where base wars take place, and expansion and reduction will be flexible and frequent depending on the size of participation in node wars by country.

On the other hand, in addition to the basic tax that can be obtained when the node is successfully captured, the privilege to use the merchant NPC, which sells rare munitions, has been added to further enhance the victory reward. This merchant sells elixirs and elixirs needed for battle at a slightly lower price. Items to help with growth are also being considered. In addition, the benefits have been greatly enhanced for the guild leader of the guild who won the node war and siege war. Today, we plan to provide powerful munitions to each of the guild leader adventurers who are dedicated to the guild so that they can equip them with the dignity that suits their hard work and as a guild leader who has won victory in the fierce battlefield.

For the reorganized node battle, we plan to actively collect opinions by providing a test environment to global adventurers through the Black Desert Lab. And based on that feedback, it will be introduced to the live server after improving its completeness. However, as the Black Desert Lab is currently preparing for the World Siege War, we will provide a test environment after that or through other methods. We ask for your patience and understanding.

On the other hand, the reinforcement of the benefits related to the guild leader will be updated on the live server as soon as possible, regardless of whether or not the node war reorganization is introduced.

※ In addition, we are reviewing the Black Spirit 100% and 200% skills of all characters. Only characters with a large difference in performance will be upgraded. In addition, the 200% Black Spirit skill will have a rather long cooldown, as it has great influence in large-scale battles. In addition, for some skills with strong influence, such as Wizard and Witch’s ‘Protection Area’, Valkyrie’s ‘Elion’s Protection’, etc. We are considering a way to adjust it. Any comments on this part are also appreciated.

    • ※ However, you cannot proceed with the above quest at Black Desert Research Institute.

[​IMG]The product launch of bags that can be used by family members has been consistently requested by adventurers from all countries over the past few years. We already decided that there was a maid and the integrated exchange was applied to solve a lot of inconveniences, but despite that, we made a bag exclusively for the family because there were never ending requests for release. However, not all can be stored in a family bag, only certain items can be stored. The Family Bag is basically activated when you complete an in-game quest, giving you the first 2 slots and 100 LT. Bag slot expansion is only possible through the Loyalty Shop and Pearl Shop.

The method of using the item drop increase scroll has been added. This update is made for those who are unable to fill 30 minutes or 1 hour after using the item drop increase scroll, or are sad that the time is sometimes wasted (war with other guilds, etc.). In the new method, the item drop increase scroll is converted into points (similar to Agris’s Fever) and consumed when defeating monsters, and the efficiency may vary depending on the growth of the hunting ground or adventurers, but compared to the general method It will be designed to a level that cannot be reached. It may not be a meaningful patch for all adventurers, but I hope it will be meaningful for adventurers who needed this feature.
