RANGER
The Succession Ranger frequently uses Prime: Blasting Gust to move around, which causes stamina issues during combat while moving. To address this, we improved Prime: Blasting Gust to consume less stamina, and changed Prime: Ultimate: Blasting Gust into the MP-consumed skill, alleviating stamina concerns. Additionally, the Invincible effect has been added at the start of the Evasive Landing Shot, and the combo between evasive skills has been improved, making it easier to utilize during combat.

For Succession Musa, the stamina consumed for the skills with Serene Mind, and the stamina recovery of those skills have been adjusted.

VALKYRIE
We have changed Severing Light to be used as a main attack skill of Valkyrie Succession in PvE along with Sword of Judgment and Divine Power.
Also, Severing Light has replaced Prime: Sanctitas de Enslar which used for melee AP in PvE, for a better combo. Now, you can create a combo that utilizes various skills including Severing Light, Sword of Judgment, and Shield Throw.

HASHASHIN
The Hashashin is a class that deals fatal damage to enemies, inspired by the desert’s assassins. However, since their skills do not have an accuracy rate effect, it was difficult for them to deal fatal damage to opponents with high evasion. To address this, Prime: Aal’s Dominion adds a accuracy rate +15% for 10 sec when using skills, allowing for sustained high accuracy rate when attacking with chain skills. Some Awakening skills have also been given accuracy rate increase effects.

Now, Garmoth will appear a total of 14 times a week. Adventurers can defeat Garmoth when they are available among the 14 appearances to obtain a maximum of 3 rewards.

These rewards are given in the form of weekly quests. You can receive the weekly quest from Kukao near the Node Manager NPC, and then defeat Garmoth at your convenience to obtain the rewards.


In addition, to allow more adventurers to obtain good loot, the type of reward obtained based on damage dealt has been standardized, so you can aim for better rewards at your discretion.
As Crimson Dragon Garmoth is a world boss content that many adventurers seek, we will strive to make it a more enjoyable and fun boss to defeat.

Ash Forest

The fog of Ash Forest has thickened, and even more ghosts are targeting adventurers. Previously, it was somewhat difficult for many adventurers to enjoy combat together, but now you can enjoy battles with many monsters even in small areas. In addition, we have improved the spawn locations that were not frequently used, so they can be used as major monster zones. And with the addition of Dehkia’s Lantern, the price of Deboreka accessories were increased. We hope these changes heighten your enjoyment in both combat and obtaining loot.
  • The fog of Ash Forest thickens, and rumors about the missing adventurer continue to spread throughout the grey forest.

Name Knowledge
Volkras
Four Shai who sought the world beyond, traveled out of their village grounds

While humming a tune, they arrived deep in the woods
One Shai discovered on a tree, a large flower in bloom
Red, red, oh the flower bloomed in red
The Shai dyed in the crimson, red flower, returned home instead

New and interesting flowers filling up everywhere

- A song by a certain Shai

Barnas
Three Shai who sought the world beyond, traveled out of their village grounds

While humming a tune, they arrived deep in the woods
One Shai discovered on a bush, a large flower so lush
Blue, blue, oh the flower so lush in blue
The Shai warmed up by the flower, returned home anew

No end can be seen to this forest where a ghost might suddenly appear

- A song by a certain Shai

Gairas
Two Shai who sought the world beyond, traveled out of their village grounds

While humming a tune, they arrived deep in the woods
One Shai discovered on a boulder, a tiny flower not long bloomed
White, white, oh the flower flickering white
The Shai shining like the flower, returned home alight

Staring at the sky, a large flower smiles at me

- A song by a certain Shai

 

 

Dehkia's Lantern

Dehkia’s Lantern was added with today’s update.


When used in Ash Forest and Olun’s Valley, Dehkia’s Lantern activates in the field and the affected monsters awaken, becoming more powerful. This enables our Adventurers to try for better loot.


This content was prepared as a means to more actively utilize the fields of Black Desert. After the Calpheon and Elvia update, there was a shortage of monster zones for skilled adventurers for a long time. However, through Dehkia’s Lantern, we can expand the zones for these adventurers more quickly. They're not completely, but we’ve designed it to provide some new entertainment, so we hope you enjoy playing it.


Dehkia’s Lantern will also be applied to Thornwood Forest, Tunkuta, and Cyclops Land after Ash Forest and Olun’s Valley, and we will prepare for a smooth transition to the new zone, Ulukita. We will also try to improve the existing monster zones as quickly as possible.

 

※ Please note that during the 2 weeks after the Dehkia’s Lantern update, crystals will not be destroyed even if you die.
  • A new artifact, Dehkia’s Lantern, was discovered in the ancient stronghold, Atoraxxion, which was built to prevent the invasion of the Dark Invader. The first person to discover this artifact was Lafi Bedmountain of the Secret Guards. He named it Dehkia’s Lantern, speculating that it was an enhancement device for ancient weapons created by Atoraxxion’s founder, Dehkia, in preparation for the Black Spirit’s invasion. However, further investigation has revealed another secret, causing great concern. You can learn more during the quests to obtain Dehkia’s Lantern.
