Greetings Adventurers,

Welcome to the last maintenance of 2019!

We have added Chat Groups where you can talk about your common interest in detail with your fellow adventurers. In addition, guild registration became easier, so it’s time to promote and join guilds!

Our last maintenance is filled with a bountiful of events where you can enjoy Succession for Kunoichi and Ninja, fight off against the fearsome Piku in Alejandro Farm, and enjoy 50% item drop rate boosts and more!

Last but not least, don’t forget the Xmas Surprise event on Dec. 25th, the one day only event to get your free boss gear!

[Ended Events]

  • Succession of Events, Part 1

[Content]

  • The relation among Calpheon, Valencia, and Mediah has aggravated, lighting a flame of conflict.
    Now, the army at each castle must receive orders from the Kalis Parliament, King Sahazad, or Neruda Shen and attack its enemy army.
    Accordingly, war will be automatically declared to the guild which is occupying Calpheon, Valencia, or Mediah territories, and this war will remain active.
    The war will end if the guild which has occupied Calpheon, Valencia, or Mediah territories becomes “unoccupied.”
  • Added a feature whereby you can request to join a guild and promote guild applications more easily.
    • A list of guilds that are recruiting members will appear when a player without a guild opens the Guild (G) window.
    • If you select the guild you want to join and press the “Join” button, you will be registered in this guild’s Recruit Guild Member tab.

  • You can no longer activate forced PvP mode on Olvia server.
    This update was intended to protect those adventurers who are not ready for PvP yet. There are many adventurers on Olvia server who need preparation before they can embark on a real adventure, such as upgrading their characters to adequate levels, getting necessary gear, practicing character control, getting used to different systems, etc. Since Olvia server is intended for new and returning adventurers’ fast settlement and growth, most of us would expect these adventurers to get strong enough to have a fierce and exciting fight with the existing adventurers through the server. Of course, PvP is open to those who can enter Olvia server too. You can enjoy a more flexible PvP by using the guild war system or by transferring to a regular server.
  • Added a Chat Group in which you can discuss a specific topic with many other players.
    • Chat Group is a newly added function within Black Desert Online where you can discuss various topics with fellow adventurers.
