Introduction


Season servers are a new addition to BDO which arrived on the 17th June 2020.

Season servers are designed for new and returning players to help them get started in BDO. There are various rewards you can collect by participating, which will give you a great start in terms of gear. The daily quests also help to introduce you to certain parts of the game without throwing you straight into the deep end. If you’re a veteran player then you can still benefit from playing on the season servers and it can be refreshing to play on them, but the rewards are not too desirable that you would feel forced to participate if you don’t want to.

Season 1 will last until August 26th 2020. You must create a special Season Character to have access to the Season server (only 1 character can be created per season). At the end of the season, your character will become a regular character.

The Season servers themselves are not actually season servers at all. They are special channels that are added and only Season characters can connect to them.  The channels have a special icon on them so you can tell them apart from regular channels

On these channels there is a Combat EXP +100% and a Skill EXP +20% buff running at all times, but PVP is not allowed (you cannot flag up and guild wars do not work) unless you join the specific PVP channel. The Central Market and Storage is not seperate to other channels. You can use your pets, fairy, tent and maids that are already on your account as well. All horses (except T9 horses) and other mounts are available in your stables. It is also worth noting that Season Characters can connect to regular channels as well, but only Season Characters can connect to the Season Channels.


Season Gear


Season characters cannot equip regular gear!

Season specific gear (Tuvala gear or Naru gear), Asula accessoires and main store quest gear is the only gear that can be equipped by a season character. These items have special icons on them.


Naru Gear


Naru gear was added on the 15/07/2020. It is easier to obtain and enhance than the Tuvala gear and is also given out as a reward when completing the main story quests in Serendia and Calpheon.

You can obtain Naru gear as a drop when fighting monsters in Serendia, Calpheon and Mediah.

You can also exchange the new Beginner Black Stones for Naru gear:

  • Beginner Black Stone (Armor) x1 = Naru Armor x1
  • Beginner Black Stone (Armor) x5 = Naru Accessory x1
  • Beginner Black Stone (Weapon) x1 = Naru Main Weapon Box x1
  • Beginner Black Stone (Weapon) x1 = Naru Sub-weapon Box x1
  • Beginner Black Stone (Weapon)x5 = Naru Accessory x1

You can obtain Beginner Blacks Stones from the main story quest, or by heating regular black stones to turn them into Beginner Black Stones.
They are also used for enhancing Naru gear
.

Processing (L) > Heating
Obtained item
Black Stone (Weapon) x 3 Beginner Black Stone (Weapon) x 1
 Black Stone (Armor) x 3 Beginner Black Stone (Armor) x 1
Black Stone (Weapon) x 30
Black Stone Powder x 1
Beginner Black Stone (Weapon) x 10
 Black Stone (Armor) x 30
Black Stone Powder x 1
Beginner Black Stone (Armor) x 10

 


Enhancing Naru Gear


To enhance Naru gear, you will need the new blackstones called Beginner Black Stone. Information about how to obtain them is shown above.

Naru gear is much easier to enhance than Tuvala gear. If you fail when enhancing they only reduce the maximum durability by -2. They also require less cron stones to safe enhance (eg. 3 cron stones needed for TET > PEN attempts).

Naru armor and weapons can be enhanced up to PEN and accessories can be enhanced up to TRI.

Once you reach PEN Naru armor/weapons and have completed the Mediah questline, you can take this gear to Fughar and he will exchange them into PRI Tuvala gear.


Tuvala Gear


To obtain Tuvala gear, you must collect Tuvala Ore by hunting monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia, Dreighan and Sycraia Underwater Ruins. Then exchange the Tuvala Ore (x1 for Armor, x5 for accessories) for pieces of gear at a blacksmith. Tuvala gear pieces can also drop from monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia, Dreighan and Sycraia Underwater Ruins.

It is also worth noting that once you achieve level 60, you will be rewarded with a PEN Tuvala Ring and then at 61, a PEN Tuvala Earring. These can be obtained in your Challenges tab.


Enhancing Tuvala Gear


To enhance Tuvala gear you will need new blackstones called Time-filled Black Stone. In the Korean patch notes it says these drop from monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia, Dreighan and Sycraia Underwater Ruins, but players have found they can drop in all regions.
When killing monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia or Dreighan, you can also drop an item called [Season] Ouk Pill of Rift.

These can be exchanged for:

  • Exchange 10 for: Time-filled Black Stone Bundle (contains 30–50 stones)
  • Exchange 20 for: Tuvala Ore Bundle (contains 10–30 ores)
  • Exchange 30 for: Refined Magical Black Stone Bundle (contains 10–30 stones)

Tuvala gear is much easier to enhance than regular gear. For example, your chance of success when enhancing to PEN with 60 fail stacks is 21%. Your chance of success when enhancing to TET with 40 failstacks is 25%. You will need lots of the Black stones though

+10 10 PEN 15

The new time-filled blackstones can also be exchanged at a new Seasonal NPC for items such as Advice of Valks (up to +40), or Valk’s Cry.

Refined Magical Black Stone can be used to force enhance the gear from +15 to TRI but reduces the items max durability by 50 each time.

You can repair the max durability again by going to the blacksmith and using an unenhanced weapon/armor of the same type.

All Tuvala ore Time-filled Black stones and Refined Magical black stones will deleted once the season ends and cannot be used in the next season.

Quests


Daily Quests

A new Seasonal NPC (Fughar) will give daily quests that will give items to help you enhance your seasonal gear. Fughar is located in all large towns next to the stable keeper.
For the first 16 days you have simple quests that only require you to talk to Fughar to complete, afterwards you will need to do various tasks for him each day.
You can complete quests on a different character to make it a little faster! You can also complete the 40 quests after season ends and receive your Capotia reward, as long as you start the quests before the season ends.

After completing the first 40 daily quests, you will unlock the special end of season reward (this season is a PEN capotia earring or PEN capotia ring). You will also receive more daily quests that will reward you with items such as Cron stones, Hard and Sharp Shards, item loot scrolls and Valk’s cry.

In order to obtain the PEN Capotia Accessory, you need to speak to Fughar and accept the quest “[Season] Fughar’s Gift”. This quest will be available after August 5th whether you have graduated or not. It is only available though if you have completed all of the 40 dailies from Fughar. He will then give you the option to choose between a PEN Capotia Earring or a PEN Capotia Ring.

  

Enhancing Quests

Additional quests can be received from “Fughar” the Seasonal NPC which reward you with Advice of Valks and involve simple tasks such as showing him different gear you have enhanced (such as TRI Tuvala armor rewarding you with Advice of Valks +40).


Main Quests

Each time you complete one of the main questlines (Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, Media) you will also recieve an award which can be used to gain a large amount of skill points. You get a certain amount of skill points EXP so you can use these at any level and it is not worth saving them for after you have gone over the skill point softcap.

If you get stuck or confused at any point, you can open your main quest log [O] then go to the “main” tab to view your progress.


Weekly Quests

There are weekly quests you can complete which will give you a lot of of the time-filled blackstones (you can choose to get Tuvala Ore instead but time-filled blackstones are used up much quicker so I recommend getting those). You need to be at least level 20 to get these quests but we recommend you are over level 56 because they involve killing monsters in certain zones. YOu can find the weekly quests by pressing [O] to open your quest tab, then going to Reccuring and they are under the (Season) section. There may be platoon parties you can join to make the killing quests go quicker!
Make sure you have switched on all quests or you will not receive the weekly quest. Do this by pressing [O] then clicking the icons at the left bottom so that they are yellow like in the image below.


Regional Quests


  • New regional quests have been added to certain monster zones in Valencia, Kamasylvia, and Drieghan. There will be two quests per monster zone.
  • You will get the quest automatically when you enter the area.
  • You must kill a certain amount of monsters in that area to receive Time-filled Black Stones and some combat EXP.
  • Completing the quest on a normal character will not reward you with the black stones and only give you EXP.

Battle Pass

 A special seasonal battle pass has been added to the season servers. You can open the battle pass by clicking the icon in the top right next to your mini-map. You must do each part of the battle pass in order to unlock the next reward, but you can complete them in advance and your progress will be saved. 

Complete various achievements to unlock rewards in your battle pass. All players have access to the free version and can buy a Seasonal Battle Pass in the pearl store to obtain the premium rewards. An example of rewards include: inventory slots, advice of valks, artisan memories, pets, elion tears, loot scrolls. Achievement tasks include completing parts of the main story quest, killing world bosses or killing a small amount of certain mobs.

At level 10 you will also be given a leveling aid box. Do NOT delete this box because you will not get it back again. You can open this at certain levels to receive awards and a temporary EXP buff.

How to Graduate (Early Graduation)


The current season will end on August 26th. However, players have the option to graduate early between August 5th (after maintenance) until August 26th (after maintenance). You cannot create a new season character for the same season if you have graduated early. Graduating early allows you to receive all of the end of season rewards and turn your charcter into a regular character. All characters must graduate between August 26th and September 2nd if they have not chosen to graduate early.

  • To graduate, you simply go to Fughar and tell him “I want to convert my season character to a regular character”. 
  • He will then send you to “Leyla” who can be found in Velia. She will give you the quest [Season Server] At the Crossroad.
  • After completing the quest you will be sent back to Fughar who will give you an “Honorable Adventurer’s Certificate” and another quest called [Season Server Graduation] Into the Big Wide World.
  • You must move to a regular channel and use the Honorable Adventure’s Certificate. This will convert your season character to a regular character.
  • After you have converted to a regular character,you can go back to Fughar again and tell him you have “Used the certificate”. He will then give you your season rewards.

You will get Conversion stones which are used to convert your Tuvala gear into gear that can be used by regular characters.

You must use these Conversion Stones on each piece of Tuvala gear you would like to keep. There is 1 conversion stone for each Weapon/Armor, 1 for necklace and belt, and then 2 for your rings and earrings, meaning you can convert one full set of gear.

To convert the gear, speak to your Black Spirit and choose the “Upgrade Gear” option. You can then select the gear and conversion stones to convert each piece individually. Make sure to select the correct piece of gear! If you do select the wrong piece of gear, send a ticket and they will help you get it sorted out, but will only do this once per account.

Unconverted Tuvala will be deleted during the maintenance on September 2, 2020 (the start date of the next Season). Make sure to convert your Tuvala Gear beforehand!   

The converted Tuvala gear will be changed to Family bound and can be moved to and equipped by regular characters. 


How to get the PEN Capotia Accessory


In order to obtain the PEN Capotia Accessory, you need to speak to Fughar and accept the quest “[Season] Fughar’s Gift”. This quest will be available after August 5th whether you have graduated or not. It is only available though if you have completed all of the 40 dailies from Fughar.

Once you’ve accepted and completed the quest “[Season] Fughar’s Gift” you will have an item called “Season Exchange Coupon”. Speak to Fughar again and click the “Season Special Gift” option. This will open the window shown below and here you can choose between the PEN Capotia Ring, or the PEN Capotia Earring. Click Exchange to confirm.

(Click the image below to enlarge)


How the Boss Gear Exchange Coupon works


When the season ends, one Tuvala item (armor or weapons) can be converted into boss gear using the [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon.

However, the armor/weapons will drop by one enhancement level (eg. PEN Tuvala becomes TET boss gear, TET Tuvala becomes TRI boss gear).

The gear also becomes family bound and you can still enhance the gear afterwards, put caphras levels into it, etc. You just can’t sell it on the market!

Season Gear can be exchanged into
Tuvala Shoes Muskan’s Shoes
 Tuvala Armor  Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor
 Tuvala Helmet Giath’s Helmet
Tuvala Gloves  Bheg’s Gloves
 Tuvala Main Weapon  Kzarka Weapon
Tuvala Awakening Weapon  Dandelion Weapon
 Tuvala Offhand Weapon  Kutum Weapon

 

To exchange Tuvala gear for a boss piece, you must first make sure you have graduated and converted the tuvala gear to regular gear using the Conversion Stones. You must then go to Fughar and accept the quest for the gear piece you would like to exchange:

  • [Season] Even Sharper Weapon: Main Weapon – Converts your Tuvala Main Hand Weapon to a Kzarka weapon box (you can open this on any class)
  • [Season] Even Sharper Weapon: Sub-Weapon – Converts your Tuvala Offhand Weapon to a Kutum weapon box (you can open this on any class)
  • [Season] Even Sharper Weapon: Awakening Weapon – Converts your Tuvala Awakening Weapon to a Dandelion weapon box (you can open this on any class)
  • [Season] Even Sturdier Armor: Helmet – Converts your Tuvala Helmet to Giath’s Helmet
  • [Season] Even Sturdier Armor: Armor – Converts your Tuvala Armor to Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor
  • [Season] Even Sturdier Armor: Gloves – Converts your Tuvala Gloves to Bheg’s Gloves
  • [Season] Even Sturdier Armor: Shoes – Converts your Tuvala Shoes to Muskan’s Shoes

After accepting the correct quest, go to Tranan Underfoe (the blacksmith in Velia) and he will exchange your gear for you.


Other advice for New Players


  • Additonal information can be found here on the offical website: https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/3992 and https://www.blackdesertonline.com/news/view/4192
  • I would also recommend checking out our Enhancing Guide which will teach you the basic systems and how to get started with enhancing your gear. 
  • Our Leveling Guide may also be useful, but since you are rewarded for completing the Main quests, it may easier for you (despite being slower) to level via main quests if you are completely new to the game.
  • We also have lots of other basic guides to help teach you things like how to increase your inventory space, how to use the central marketplace, introductions to nodes and contribution points, etc. Check out our list of guides page for more. 
  • If you are struggling at all, feel free to pop into our Discord server and ask questions!

    Do I need to remove the crystals before the gear conversion ?

    • Aug 5, 2020 @ 22:51 pm

      You should be able to leave any crystals in the gear and they will remain intact when you convert the gear
