Ocean Current and Wind

Ocean Current and Wind

  • Ocean current and wind was added to affect sailing in all parts of the world of Black Desert.

They won't affect your ship as much when near the coastline, but will become a lot stronger as you venture further from the coast and out into the sea.

When you board your ship, you will be provided with information on the strength and direction of both ocean current and wind.

Also in this information UI, the top blue bar indicates the speed of the ship and the cannon icons on both sides show you information on cooldown and the number of cannonballs you have left.

Isn't it the dream of any great sailor to be able to wrestle the rough seas and arrive safely at his or her destination with their crew? Previously in the world of Black Desert, there were only the occasional whirlwinds nudging your ship and the abrupt Phantom Ship to inconvenience your travels.

All that is a thing of the past. Now, you will be faced with fierce winds as fearful as a giant's murderous grin, and unpredictable currents akin to that of wild horses. This new harsh environment could be of great nuisance to you, but many experienced sailors await to be hired to help you through the turmoils of the sea. We hope for you to embark on your very own journey out into the Great Ocean to adapt to and overcome everything it throws at you.
