[Content]

  • Major Update – Gyfin Rhasia Temple Monster Zone Update
    • The conflict between the Ganelle and the Ahib has aggravated, increasing the security level of the Gyfin Rhasia Temple.
    • The majority of Gyfin Rhasia Statues of Earth switched to combat standby mode, and they have become combat monsters.
    • The Gyfin Rhasia Temple was updated to be a Monster Zone with a Recommended AP of 270.
    • The stats of Gyfin Rhasia Temple’s monsters increased.
      • HP increased by 180%, AP increased by 7%, DP increased by 8%.
    • The time that it takes for a Gyfin Rhasia Temple’s monster to find an enemy and enter combat mode decreased by 30%.
    • The Combat EXP that can be obtained from defeating Gyfin Rhasia Temple’s monsters decreased by 50%, and the Skill EXP for this increased by 100%.
  • The number of Junk Items you can obtain by defeating the following monsters in the Gyfin Rhasia Temple increased.
Monster Before After
Gyfin Rhasia Decimator x1–3 x2–3
Gyfin Rhasia Flamen x1–3 x2–3
Gyfin Rhasia Crusher x1–3 x2–3
Gyfin Rhasia Statue of Earth x1 x1–2
Gyfin Rhasia Tower of Transfusion x1 x1–2

Together with Kamasylvia Part 2, Gyfin Rhasia Temple was the first Monster Zone to be released in Black Desert that required 5 players to cooperate.

At the time of its release, it required very high combat skills, with a Recommended AP of 240, and its befitting highly compensating reward, Tungrad Belt, motivated the adventurers to jump into this monster zone.

However, the rough topography, the large distance between monsters, and the inconvenient flow for defeating monsters didn’t allow the players to get the most of this monster zone before they could get used to it.

Moreover, as Mirumok Ruins was updated to be a monster zone for a party of 3 and became more approachable, players who visited Gyfin Rhasia started to decrease.

Gyfin Rhasia Temple has now become a monster zone that requires even higher combat skills than before, with a Recommended AP of 270.

Its monsters are now stronger and their number has increased. Instead, we have adjusted the placement of the monsters and the flow to defeat them so that the players could enjoy their party play without necessarily having an experienced party member.

The number of monsters per area has increased significantly, the time that it takes for a monster to reappear has decreased, and the reaction speed of the monsters has increased, therefore decreasing the flow length and the fatigue caused for defeating monsters. The number of the majority of the Junk Items obtainable from these monsters has increased too.

Nevertheless, given that the Combat EXP gain per defeated Gyfin Rhasia Temple monster was the highest among all Black Desert monsters, the increase in the number of Gyfin Rhasia Temple monsters was balanced with a decrease in the Combat EXP gain, and the comparably low Skill EXP gain has increased.

Additionally, we expect the application of the Item Collection Increase Scroll effect will make this monster zone more enjoyable.

  • You can now exchange Level 4 trade goods for Sea Coins in certain islands.
  • Adjusted the Parley that is consumed when bartering in the Margoria region with floating objects or the Valencian island.
  • The rate at which you can exchange Island Tree Coated Plywood at the Netnume Island increased.

We are making preparations to present you more varied and special goods with the Sea Coin Shop.

Our plan is to add Sea Coin acquisition locations so that there are other ways available for you to obtain the Sea Coins, apart from bartering. So you can now exchange Level 4 trade goods for Sea Coins. Instead, the parley consumption in certain regions was adjusted to keep the overall balance.

We will keep paying attention to all your opinions and continue doing our best to create a more enjoyable game.

Once she achieves Succession, the Mystic can perform combo attacks by which one attack is connected to the other most fluently and deal a power strike using the charged Fighting Spirit.

At the beginning, she has to perform a combo with several skills until she can charge the Fighting Spirit, but once the combo persists for a certain level, she will recover the Fighting Spirit in tremendous amounts. The Mystic then cannot only perform combo attacks more easily but also deal Fighting Spirit-consuming strikes relentlessly.

  • Major Update – Lahn succession update
    • The PvP damage of Prime: Blooming Nether Flower increased by 36%.
    • The PvP damage of Prime: Salp’uri Purge increased by 21%.

    • You will now be able to use the skills that are used as combos after using Prime: Primrose Sprint more rapidly.
    • The speed at which Stamina is consumed during a glide that is used as a combo after Prime: Spring Breeze or Prime: Primrose Sprint doubled.

Lahn succession focuses on combo attacks, based on mobility and stability. However, we concluded that, in order to firm up such a characteristic, it was necessary to adjust the damage of some skills first.

Firstly, we increased the PvP damage of Prime: Blooming Nether Flower and Prime: Salp’uri Purge.

Prime: Bleeding Hearts was changed from being a forward-moving attack to a focused attack. Hence the attack range decreased, but the damage dealt to the point of attack increased.
