Black Desert Online Updates

Patch Notes - May 12, 2021

 

Greetings Adventurers,


Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on May 12, 2021 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 67 updates and is approximately 582.60 MB.

 

New and Improvements

Character

The upcoming update on May 26 will include a comprehensive balance patch that will make improvements (major and minor) to every class in Black Desert. Not only will this update include PvP changes that are already live in the Global Lab, but it will also include PvE improvements that are currently in development. We hope you guys are as excited as we are for this class revamp!

Currently, our development process is working to improve all classes at the same time rather than focus on a few characters at a time. Since this is more time-consuming, it's taken us longer than expected, and we ask for your understanding regarding the longer-than-expected delay of these long-awaited changes. We are combing through the improvements we've planned as well as the feedback left by Adventurers on the official website in order ensure carefully considered changes to this upcoming update. Your feedback and those of all our Adventurers worldwide have been invaluable in this process, so please keep sending us your feedback as you traverse the world of Black Desert!
 
● The maximum increase and decrease percentages for Attack Speed, Casting Speed, and Movement Speed have been changed:
- Max Attack Speed, Casting Speed, Movement Speed Increase: 250% (Standard Default: 100%)
- Max Attack Speed, Casting Speed, Movement Speed Decrease: 50% (Standard Default: 100%)
The changes made to this content focus more on the decrease percentage of each stat than the increase percentage. Before, multiple applications of a skill's effect or a special effect at once could have reduced the speed of any one of these stats up to 99%. Since this is quite punishing for Adventurers and is disruptive to the game's action-oriented gameplay, the maximum decrease percentage that can be applied to each of these stats has been limited to 50% (even if the effects are applied through multiple skills all at once).
● Three new skills exclusive to Node and Conquest War have been added.
- You can only learn one of the three skills at a time.
- These skills can be learned using a Secret Book, which can be acquired by exchanging the Resplendent Medal of Honor (a new Node War reward).
Skill Name Skill Effect

Yianaros's Light I-V

+5 - 25 Magic DP Increase

Pilgrim's Steps I-V

+5 - 25 Ranged DP Increase

Knight's Defense I-V

+5 - 25 Melee DP Increase
With this update, three passive skills exclusive to Node Wars and Conquest Wars are now available for all classes. Each of these skills will increase one of the following: Melee DP, Ranged DP, or Magic DP. But be warned - you can learn only one of the three skills at a time, so choose wisely! (For instance, if you choose Yianaros's Light to increase your Magic DP, you will not be able to acquire Pilgrim's Steps or Knight's Defense.)

Many of Black Desert's greatest battles are waged in Node Wars and Conquest Wars, and the data retrieved from these wars across all regions are constantly being retrieved and examined. Class distribution, damage, and kill-death ratios - stats like these have a huge impact on how large-scale battles play out. To level the playing field and lessen the possibility of a battle being too heavily influenced by these factors, we've added skills that give Adventurers the option to increase DP for a specific type of damage. However, since these skills are specific to Node and Conquest Wars, learning them isn't as simple as just investing Skill Points into the desired skill. These skills also require special Secret Books, which can be acquired by exchanging Resplendent Medals of Honor (a new reward for participating in Node Wars).

Lastly, although each class has been granted individual use of these passive skills, we will look into adding guild skills exclusive to Node Wars and Conquest Wars if conditions are not optimal in these large-scale battles.
● The issue where Adventurers with negative Karma could not be seen when another Adventurer uses the Hide function has been fixed. No more ghosts!
 
 

 

● Fixed the issue with Absolute: Storming Beast where it could not be activated while using another skill.
● Fixed the issue with Smack Down where the crowd control debuff would sometimes activate during the skill animation even though you failed to grab a target.
● Fixed the issue with Prime: Predatory Hunt where certain visual effects would appear abnormal when it is used on Remastered or higher settings.
 

 

● Fixed the issue where resetting only all of your character's learned Succession skills would cause your character's Succession state to reset.

● Outfits for Guardian, Hashashin, and Nova can now be obtained through the Glorious Shudad Classic Set.
● Fixed the descriptions for the Glorious Shudad Classic and Premium Sets so that only the classes that can obtain outfits through these sets are listed.

- '[Lahn] Lahr Arcien Underwear A (No Stockings)' has been changed to '[Lahn] Lahr Arcien Underwear (No Stockings)'.
- The icon for '[Kunoichi] Sileshi Underwear' has been changed to match the outfit's appearance.
● The descriptions for Trace items about the Crafting Notes will now take you directly to BDO Wiki's Crafting Notes page.

 

Contents

● The Whale Tendon Potion will now have a blue item border instead of a green border when viewed in Black Spirit's Adventure.
● When changing the velocity of a note in the Compose/Score window, the velocity will automatically change as the value is being inputted.

Patch Notes - May 4, 2021

Greetings Adventurers,


Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on May 4, 2021 (Tue). Today’s patch contains 76 updates and is approximately 555.56 MB.


Happy adventuring!

 

Thundercloud Kutum

● Recently, archaeologists have uncovered a secret room in the Scarlet Sand Chamber that contains the immaculately preserved traces of the Ancients. Kutum, however, was overcome by the unknown energies that seeped out from this secret room, quickly turning the once guardian of the chamber into its destroyer. Having witnessed its never-before-seen destructive power, the archaeologist Desalam christened this new form as 'Thundercloud Kutum,' and has suggested restricting entry to the Scarlet Sand Chamber.
- Thundercloud Kutum will electrocute and slowly kill any Adventurer who enters the stone chambers. In this form, Kutum radiates powerful energies in a much wider range than its original form.
- Thundercloud Kutum can also awaken Ancient Weapons that lay in slumber around the stone chambers to come to its aid, and will also unleash unblockable energy storms to inflict critical damage.
● The Scarlet Sand Chamber excavation party has widened the entrance to the interior chambers for the sake of researching the relics within.
● The Adventurer who deals the final blow to Thundercloud Kutum will earn a unique Title.

 

 

● When Thundercloud Kutum appears, an ancient device will activate in the stone chamber.
Each room in the stone chamber has a different function, which are as follows:


Rooms that Cleanse Kutum's Clouds

- Thundercloud Kutum will periodically blast two different types of powerful clouds onto Adventurers.
- Adventurers must head to the appropriate location in the stone chamber to remove these clouds.
- Also, if there are three or more Adventurers in the stone chamber who have each successfully diffused the clouds, a relic will activate and imbue them with a mighty power.
- However, if an Adventurer heads into the wrong stone chamber for their cloud, the relic will react by covering said Adventurer with a death-inducing cloud.

 

▲ To cleanse oneself of Kutum's clouds, you must enter the room with the same color as your cloud.

 


Room that Weakens Kutum

- Once Kutum reaches a certain amount of health, it will summon Ancient Weapons to protect itself, and begin to draw energy from beneath the grounds of the stone chamber.
- Defeat the summoned Ancient Weapons to have a chance to obtain the 'Clouded Shard,' which you can place inside the 'Eye of the Ancients' to activate a relic in the largest room of the stone chamber.
- Successfully activating the relic will weaken Kutum, making it unable to move for a certain period of time.
- However, if the Ancient Weapons aren't quickly dealt with and the relic is not activated within a certain period of time, Kutum will become more powerful and begin to unleash stronger attacks.

 

▲ An Ancient Weapon summoned by Kutum to protect itself after losing a certain amount of HP.

 

▲The relic activated by obtaining the 'Clouded Shard' from defeated Ancient Weapons and placing the shard within the 'Eye of the Ancients.'

 

● Added 'Kutum's Power Stone,' a new item from defeating Thundercloud Kutum.
- You can equip Kutum's Power Stone in the Alchemy Stone slot.
- Using Kutum's Power Stone will unleash the concentrated energy of Kutum as area of effect damage.
- Once its durability reaches 0, you can no longer use Kutum's Power Stone.

 

▲ Using Kutum's Power Stone

 


▲ Thundercloud Kutum appears

▲ Kutum raining down multiple thunderbolts in its vicinity

▲ Kutum attacking with electrical storms

▲ Kutum attacking by rising from the ground

▲ Kutum summoning Ancient Weapons

▲ Kutum summoning an electric orb that moves randomly

▲ Kutum sucking in all things in its vicinity

▲ Kutum dealing a frontal swipe attack, and then attacking the opposite direction.
Thundercloud Kutum is the most difficult World Boss of the three bosses we've revamped so far. Compared to Bloodstorm Nouver, which has kept many Adventurers on their toes, Thundercloud Kutum's attack patterns and movements are a bit easier to learn. It is the requirement for group coordination and effort that makes it a more difficult fight. However, taking down this behemoth will grant some special loot, so we look forward to seeing many Adventurers take on this new challenge together.
 

 

Event

● Prime: Purificatione - Fixed the issue where the skill's add-on effects weren't being applied when used on cooldown in certain situations.
 

 

● Absolute: Divider, Prime: Divider I - Fixed the issue where you could learn both skills at once.
- If you had learned both skills, using either will now activate Prime: Divider, and resetting your skills will return the skill point you used to learn Absolute: Divider.
● Core: Sticky Snowflake - Fixed the issue where the non-Core version of the skill would activate when using the skill from the Quick Slot.
 

 

● Fixed the issue where using your Talent weapon to enter combat, move forward, then pressing the TAB key to leave combat would display irregular animations.
 

 

● Haladie Throw - Fixed the issue where the skill's hitbox was applied improperly when used on cooldown.
 

 

● Added Core skills to Sage Awakening.

- Added Black Spirit: Impaling Flash, Black Spirit: Flow: Interrogate, and Black Spirit: Ator's Spear to the Skills window.

- Each skill will gain special effects such as additional hit targets, increased casting speed, etc.
 
● Added an Elvia-exclusive skill to Sage Awakening. You can only use this skill while having an Elvia Awakening Weapon equipped.

 

Item

- Cancelling a task will bring back no materials, just as before.


● Changed the name of the '[Battlefield Heroes] Rewards!' challenges to 'A Warm Breeze with Rewards.'

 


Monster

● Changed the terrain of certain parts of Hystria Ruins. As a result, the location of certain monster groups was changed and the number of monsters increased.

 

Quest, Knowledge

● Dalishain, an apprentice to Velia's alchemist, Alustin, has been sighted in major cities. Alustin's exceptionally gifted apprentice will be wandering from major city to major city, offering services to increase one's potential in Alchemy. At Alustin's behest, Dalishain will be taking his place to offer the simple test in Alchemy to Adventurers.
- Dalishain's interests lie in crafting potions, so you will be able to find her near the potion vendors of each major city.
- Changed the name of the Alchemy quest '[Bonus] A Simple Test from Alustin I' to '[Bonus] A Simple Test from Dalishain I.'

● Changed the Node War Information tab on the World Map (M) to now display information on Alliances occupying each node.
● Fixed Alliance forts in the World Map (M) to display the name of the Alliance during Node/Conquest Wars.

 

UI

● Rumor has it that a certain Adventurer is on verge of attaining the Rich Merchant's prize. Once they finish crafting the Rich Merchant's Ring, a somewhat special notification message will announce their achievement to the entire Black Desert world.
● Added the function to grant nicknames to Workers.
- Only you can see the nicknames you give to your Workers.

● Changed the format of the Worker's Promotion Test results sent by the Work Supervisor. The in-game mail will now display the upgraded rank of the Worker if they pass the Promotion Test.

Patch Notes - April 28, 2021

 

Greetings Adventurers,


Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on April 28, 2021 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 121 updates and is approximately 810.89MB.


Happy adventuring!

 

New and Improvements

Character

● Fixed the issue where some Skill Enhancements were not being applied as intended.

Skill Enhancement is a system that allows Adventurers to customize each skill with different effects. Currently, this system is set up in a way where the Skill Enhancement’s buff effects are activated regardless of whether or not the target blocks the hit, while its debuff effects aren't inflicted if the target uses a Guard to block the hit. However, we discovered that certain Skill Enhancement effects were not following this system, so we've fixed these issues with today’s update.
- Fixed the issue where the attacker's Skill Enhancement buffs weren't applied regardless of whether or not the attack was blocked by the target.
Buffs Fixed Effect
HP Recovery per hit target MP/WP/SP Recovery per hit target When the attacker uses a skill enhanced with these buffs, the skill's enhanced effect will apply regardless of whether or not the target blocks the hit
- Fixed the issue where an attack's Skill Enhancement debuffs were applied even though the target blocked the attack.
Debuffs Fixed Effect
PvP AP decrease, All DP decrease All Evasion/Accuracy Rate decrease When the attacker uses a skill enhanced with these debuffs, the skill's enhanced effect will not be applied if the target blocks the hit.

Also, you can choose to obtain additional Alchemy EXP instead of Trace items. We hope this will aid you in your path to becoming a famous alchemist!
 

● Changed the [Practice] Lynch Cannon so that its area of impact will be marked on the World Map (M) and in-game. The area of impact will be marked for approximately 20 seconds.

To keep with the 'practice' aspect of a practice cannon, we've made it so that the area of impact is marked on the World Map. However, this feature does not apply to normal cannons.

● Completed terraforming Lerao Island to be easier for Carracks to sail through.

System

We carried out an update during the maintenance on April 21, 2021 (Wed) to fix an issue where the Central Marketplace prices were changing irregularly. However, we discovered that when an item was listed on the market at max price, pre-orders for the item wouldn't be carried out randomly. Thus, we've fixed this issue with today's update.

● Fixed the issue where the key guide for the Warehouse was displayed along with the key guides for Storage, Transport, Maid Storage, and Guild Storage when using the Gamepad UI.
● Fixed the issue where the key guide for checking name duplicates in the Guild/Clan creation window was overlapping with other UI when using the Gamepad UI.
● Fixed the graphical issues with the regions near Duvencrune and the capital city of O'dyllita on the World Map.
● Fixed the issue where you couldn't upgrade your Clan to a Guild if attempted from a town where you did not first create your Clan.
● Fixed the issue where you couldn't create an alliance with more than 5 guilds.
● Fixed the issue where the key guide to change the Black Spirit's appearance wouldn't disappear if you selected a different menu when using the Gamepad UI.

● Fixed the issue where the “Sale” tag was not displayed under the Ship category in the Pearl Shop (F3).
● Fixed the issue where the [Sage] Karki, Pavilla, and Canape costumes would appear in the tabs of all classes.

 

We hope you enjoy your time in Black Desert, thank you.
