Siege War/Node War changes

  • If you missed the previous patch notes about the upcoming Node War revamp you can check them here
  • More information related to the revamp of node wars have been added.
  • ※ This weekend, a revamped node war test will be conducted through the Black Desert Global Lab server.
    • When the base battle is in progress (for 2 hours), if the fortress of the defending guild that is occupying the node is not destroyed, the defending guild has been changed to win the node
    • You can use the ‘Gather Up’ skill once for 10 minutes at the start of the node war. However, if the central node is destroyed, it cannot be used.
  • * When using the ‘Gather Up’ function while occupying two or more nodes, it moves you to the center node.
  • * If you use ‘Gather Up’ when there are less than 2 points being occupied, you will be moved to the node you owned or constructed as before.
  • When three or more ndoes are occupied, if the fortress of the node connected to the center node is destroyed, all isolated nodes have been changed to be liberated.
    • In the case of guild-affiliated buildings, it is possible to construct each node as before, and the maximum number of siege weapons such as elephants and cannons has been changed to be limited.
    • After summoning a siege weapon from a node, it is possible to move to another node and use it strategically.
    • For example, it is possible for Guild A to move the elephant summoned from Quint Hill node and use it in Calpheon Castle Ruins when fighting at Quint Hill, Abandoned Land, and Calpheon Castle Ruins.
    • The number of shiny honorable medals that can be received as a reward after the node war is over is paid once according to the highest level and result (victory/release/defeat) among the nodes occupied by the guild.
    • For example, when a central node is destroyed and all of the connecting nodes are destroyed, one shining medal of honor is given, and when the guild occupying a tier 2 node newly occupies a tier 4 node, 24 shining medals of honor are given.
    • As another example, when three guilds attempt to capture a tier 3 starting node, when liberated, each guild member receive 8 shiny medals of honor.
    • The number of shining honorary medals awarded according to the guild tier and node result as follows.
  Victory Liberation Defeat Add
Tier 1 12 4 1 5
Tier 2 16 6 1 5
Tier 3 20 8 1 5
