Class Balance Updates

Coming to the August 5 (Fri) update in Black Desert Global Lab.
We’ll start with adjustments to overly powerful PvP classes, then focus on updates to classes
that are overwhelmingly efficient in PvE and those that show low efficiency in PvE. 
Our goal is to reduce the gaps and variances between classes.
After that, we will be taking additional feedback and then making more fine-tuned adjustments. 



Arena of Solare Regular Season – Starting August 17 (Wed) 

· Improvements to Info System ·

Improvements to the info system will allow you to see in more detail how well you did in a match
and how other top-ranked Adventurers are playing.
You will be able to see top-ranked Adventurers’ crystal set-up, Skill Add-ons, and more.
Additionally, class-based rankings will also be viewable.

Top rankers will be rewarded special benefits such as outfits.

· Practice Mode ·

Before jumping into rank mode, Adventurers will soon be able to practice with Practice Mode.
Practice Mode will allow you to party up with friends and guildmates before heading into a match.
When ranked mode isn’t available, practice mode will be available to play!


Quality of Life Improvements

· Marni’s Realm - Hystria & Aakman ·

After a server optimization update, Hystria and Aakman will be added to Marni’s Realm.
Our goal is to add them as soon as possible!

· Automatic Food & Elixir Skill - Coming Soon ·


Fairies will be able to automatically use foods and elixirs with the new skill: “Continuous Care.”
Three presets will be available so that you can have different settings for varying situations.
Fairy tiers will be maintained. Max levels will be increased to level 50 and an additional skill can be learned.
Miraculous Cheer V and Feathery Steps V can be learned with similar probability.


· Conquest War & Node War Improvements ·

You will be able to directly select your guild and your opponent’s guild’s colors,
allowing for easier identification of opponents.


Conditions for building forts and command posts will be made less restrictive,
allowing you to build on more rougher terrain.
Additionally, the default building preparation time required for forts and annexes will be decreased to
1 second before Node/Conquest War begins.
And lastly, remote installation will also be added to Conquest War.

· Inventory QoL Improvements ·

Items obtained while adventuring will be better grouped together, so that they are easier to identify,
which means that novice Adventurers can manage their inventories with more ease. 

· Improvements to Maids ·

Maids will get a new ability that will allow you to easily move items between characters located within the same region.


Adding More Content to Outfits

· Outfits and Their Stories ·

To give outfits more context, background stories explaining the outfit’s origin and concept will be added.

· Changes to Outift Release Schedule ·

Our development direction for outfits will change, so that the same outfit will be released for multiple classes
and come with a story.
More classes will be able to wear the new outfits and there will be less waiting.


Battlefield of the Elves

New Conquest War will be expanded to match the growing world of Black Desert

* Tentative name.
