    [Quest]

    • Updated quest reward items.

    We had two goals in our minds when we updated the main quest rewards.

    Firstly, to let beginners get the necessary rewards at the required moments, and secondly, to adjust the effects of the main quest reward items based on the game’s present standards to make these items actually more helpful.

    In Black Desert, you can get gear, consumables, and other items through different methods, and be aided by these items until you get used to the game. However, because a significant amount of rewards were given through sub-quests whose requirements, quest flows, and acceptance times were all different, beginners couldn’t get the necessary items at the required moments.

    Hence we did this update, which will allow beginners to obtain helpful gear through very approachable main quests.

    Now, any player can complete the main quests and get gear that will help the player to grow his or her character at the appropriate time.

    We have also updated the effects of the quest reward gear which were released a long time ago.

    These effects have been increased so that the character in growth could actually be aided by the reward gear based on the character’s growth speed and Monster Zone balance. Particularly, you will be able to get these gear earlier than before and therefore equip the new items before exploring a new region.

    Moreover, these items can be enhanced. For accessories, changes were made so that you can easily try accessory enhancement, since failing to enhance an accessory doesn’t destroy it but decreases its Max Durability only. You can obtain the materials needed for enhancing or recovering the Max Durability of an item continuously from repeatable quests of each region’s Monster Zone.

    • You can now obtain the reward gear you could obtain by completing the ADV Support quests from the Suggested quests tab in the Quest List (O) through main quests.
      • However, those quest reward gear whose names don’t match the main quest were substituted by new items that have the same stats as the existing quest reward gear, and consequently some quest names and dialogues have been changed.
