As revealed at the last Calpheon banquet, a new equipped item ‘Artifact’ and a ‘Luminous stone’ that can enhance its effect have been added to Black Desert.
Artifacts and luminous stones are different from the existing equipped items such as marked attack power and marked defense, and are aimed at helping adventurers to set up a little more variety depending on the class or play style you have selected. Artifacts have 2 slots for ‘Luminous stone only’ like slots, and you can get a combination effect when 3 or 4 Luminous stone are equipped. You can think of it as a crystal concept of combined magic like Hum. Combination effects are very versatile, so you can choose according to your playstyle and taste.
However, the effect of the existing combination magic crystal has a fixed effect, but in the case of luminous stone, you can get different combination effects depending on what combination you use. It will be easier to operate than to modify it, as it is possible to supply and supply (shop item) with silver coins as well.
Basically, Artifacts can be obtained so-called ‘finished products’ through hunting grounds, etc., but most luminous stones require the help of alchemy to awaken their power. You can obtain ‘Ore Luminous stone’ through gathering or hunting, and if you craft it through alchemy, you will have a chance to obtain various types of Luminous stone. At the last Calpheon Banquet, we made an announcement in the form of obtaining and strengthening this luminous stone, but instead of reducing the burden of strengthening, we decided to focus on alchemy, one of the representative lives of Black Desert, a little more. In addition, it is also possible to craft a ore into a luminous stone by paying silver to an alchemist (Eileen, etc.) NPC in each village. However, in this case, you will have to pay a little more. ※ Note that Artifacts cannot be registered on the integrated exchange, and both raw and ore can be registered.
As mentioned earlier, we are considering Artifacts and luminous stones in a way that allows us to diversify our settings a little more. This update is a form of maximizing existing effects, but please note that we are preparing special effects such as reducing the cooldown of certain skills of each class and increasing attack power at night.
