World Boss Tips!

1. Anyone can participate in a World Boss raid when a World Boss appears at its spawn location. You can view their spawn times and locations below.



- Vell and Nouver respectively appear in Vell’s Realm and the Great Desert, which are locations where you won’t be able to see your exact spot on the map. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, make sure to bring a compass to help you find your way!
▶ Link to the World Boss Raid Timetable
▶ Install the Black Desert+ app to easily view the World Boss Raid times
- You can also view the World Boss raid times in-game from “BDO Adventurer's Guide (F1) →  “World Boss Raid.”


2. Before you head off to the World Boss, make sure you have sufficient AP/DP on your gear!


3. Beware! If you die to a World Boss, you’ll receive a death penalty!


4. If the World Boss isn’t defeated within 30 minutes, they will disappear.
- The HP of a World Boss is shared across all servers. Don’t worry if you don’t see your fellow Adventurers, you’re still fighting alongside them!


5. Once a World Boss is defeated, Adventurers will be given loot depending on several criteria, one of which is the “amount of damage dealt.” However, the “amount of damage dealt” is just one of the criteria, so you can still get the rarest items if you’re lucky.
- The “enhanced” versions of the World Boss require you to deal 0.01% of their HP (shared HP across all servers) as damage to obtain loot.
