Guild rewards to be issued on Nov 8 (Wed) for the Asia Node War Championship & World Node War are as follows.
Asia Node War Championship Guild Reward Recipients World Node War Guild Reward Recipients
A. Guild (alliance) member who directly participated in the main matches of the Asia Node War Championship
B. Guild (alliance) member who was already part of a participating guild prior the 2nd qualifier matches of the Asia Node War Championship (Oct 8 (Sun)*)
(*Guild rewards have been expanded to now be issued to all members of participating guilds (alliances) as of this date)
A. Guild (alliance) member who directly participated in the main matches of the World Node War or Asia Node War Championship
B. Guild (alliance) member who was already part of a participating guild prior the 2nd qualifier matches of the Asia Node War Championship (Oct 8 (Sun))
※ Previously guild rewards were to be issued to guild (alliance) members who were part of participating guilds between "Oct 8 (21:00) - Oct 29 (23:50)," but the date was changed due to the 2nd match being changed to World Node Wars.
- Guild (alliance) members who were part of the participating guilds but weren't able to remain in the guild during Oct 8 (21:00) - Oct 29 (23:59) should contact Support to see if they're eligible for the guild rewards.

※ Detailed records of all participating adventurers of the Asia Node War Championship and World Node War were taken, and, after a thorough investigation, no signs of irregular gameplay from unauthorized programs or client manipulation were found.
However, out of all participating regions, a portion of the adventurers from the Asia region (18 out of 400 participants) were found to have unauthorized gear (higher grade alchemy stones) for the World Node War matches on Oct 29 (Sun) and since have had their qualifications revoked.

- Adventurers whose qualifications were revoked will not be issued the World Node War guild rewards and will be restricted for participating in future events for the next 6 months.




Alchemy Life Skill
Today's update brought an increase to the supply of core materials used for Alchemy activities, such as Trace, Sap, Powder, etc..

One only needs to look at the data of just how many Trace, Sap, Fruits, and other related materials are produced and consumed in the world of Black Desert to realize their importance.

There are many materials accumulating daily in the world of Black Desert, and yet, not all of them are not being sold on the Central Market at the current price..
We felt that there are two main reasons for the aforementioned occurrence.

Firstly, materials that have no current use are wasting away in adventurers' storage/warehouse.
Secondly, materials with rather low Silver on the Central Market are wasting away in adventurers' storage/warehouse.

To resolve such cases mentioned above,
and to encourage Central Market sales of materials not currently-in-use, a base price hike may be required,
but if we were to increase the prices of such materials used for Life Skills, this would also influence the prices of products produced with such materials (i.e. elixirs) and would increase the financial burden for all adventurers.

And so, we felt it best to increase the supply, especially in the amount gathered and by adding new sources.
We will continue to monitor this situation, and make adjustments where necessary to steady the supply, as one of the related goals of this update is also to stabilize the pricing of elixir items.

Furthermore, once a certain level of stabilization has been achieved, we plan to make adjustments to Imperial Delivery where applicable.
We ask that you continue to send us your feedback, and we will continue to deliberate and make adjustments that will be favorable to both Alchemy and Central Market-frequenting adventurers alike.

Trace Items
One of the core materials for Alchemy Life activities are Trace items, and we've increased the sources and amounts gathered. Now you can gather increased amounts of these materials from production nodes, and also gain some more by completing bonus quests that randomly appear during Alchemy activities. Trace item drops from defeating monsters have also been increased, as well as through Gathering activities. Supply from Hunting, Alchemy, Gathering, and Manufacturing Nodes have also been increased. We hope this overall increase of sources and supply of Trace items will help lessen the burden of Alchemy Life activities for all adventurers.
Production Nodes
  • Doubled the amount of Trace items obtainable from the following production nodes.
    • Trace items obtainable from Haemo Island, Dokkebi Forest, Beombawi Valley, and Golden Pig Cave production nodes have been quintupled.

Gathering Trade Goods Deleted, Trace Items from Gathering Added
Trade goods obtainable from Gathering activities varied depending on the type and/or characteristic of the engaged Gathering activity itself. However, with no significant change in their price after a long period of time, it's lost most of its original meaning. We thought of adjusting the pricing of these trade goods, or even their usage, but since Gathering adventurers place higher value in the weight of items occupied in their inventory, we felt that with trade goods being innately heavy in-game made the acquisition of such trade goods through Gathering activities hindered the main occupation of such adventurers. Hence, we came to the conclusion that it be for the best that we delete trade goods acquired from Gathering activities, and decided to add Trace items as an additional and more meaningful reward worthy of Life Skilling adventurers' efforts.
  • Added different Trace items to be obtainable from different Gathering activities.
    • The following Trace items can be gathered from the following Gathering activities.
Mining Jewel Embedded Stone Removed, Trace of the Earth Added
Hoe Gathering Female Kermes Removed, Trace of Forest Added
Lumbering or Collecting Sap Intact Insect Amber Removed, Trace of Ascension Added
Collecting Blood Crystalized Blood Removed, Trace of Memory Added
Butchering Well-polished Sole Removed, Trace of Death Added
Tanning Closed Beak Removed, Trace of Savagery Added
  • ※ Gathering EXP previously obtained from acquiring Gathering trade goods will now be awarded when acquiring a Trace item from Gathering.
  • ※ Trace item drop rates from Gathering activities are affected by pets with the Special Skill "Gathering Amount Increase" (i.e. Hedgehog).
  • Changed certain quests that required the now removed Gathering trade goods to now require the Fairy's Breath item.
  • Unified the daily Gathering quests offered by Liana into one general Gathering quest.
    • Depending on the level, the quest will require 1 to 5 Fairy's Breath for completion.


Sap Items

Sap is one of base resources you encounter when first dabbling in Alchemy activities, and so we decided to increase its supply as well. This change will most definitely increase the amount obtainable from production nodes, as well as the actual base amount initially gathered. For additional fun, we made Afuaru also try his hand in Life Skilling, as you will be able to randomly encounter him collecting sap in the field (and take his sap by defeating him) as well. Now when you'll need more materials for mass processing recipes, we hope that you won't remain scrounging through Central Market orders but try your hand in the new and diverse ways to acquire more sap by your own means.
Production Nodes
  • Increased the amount of sap items obtainable from the following production nodes.
    • Maple & Pine Sap: Approx. increased by 1.5 times
    • Snowfield Cedar Sap: Approx. increased by 5 times

Gathering Activities - Afuaru
  • With profits worsening from graverobbing, Afuaru has decided to try his hand at collecting sap.
    • Now when you are collecting sap, you will randomly encounter Afuaru.
    • Greedy for profit, Afuaru has been utilizing environmentally-hazardous means to collect more sap. Teach him a lesson and you'll be able to relieve him of his ill-gotten gains.
※ Afuaru is not affected by your Life Skill Mastery, nor will spawn during the Green Artisan minigame.
※ You will need to teach Afuaru a lesson within 3 minutes, or he will run away.
※ Only one type of Afuaru can spawn at any given point in an area.

Fruit Items

In the world of alchemy, fruits stand as a pivotal ingredient, chiefly sourced from farming and gathering. If you have a penchant for farming, the increased yield allows you to amass more fruits. Those looking to secure an abundant supply of fruits can do so by utilizing Mysterious Seeds. Additionally, when using a hoe for gathering, you can collect a diverse array of fruits, making it easier to obtain this crucial ingredient for your alchemical pursuits.
Mysterious Seed
  • Increased the amount of obtainable fruits by 1.5 times from Plant Breeding using the Mysterious Seed.
  • Increased the amount of obtainable fruits from Plant Breeding by 1.33 times.
  • Increased the probability of obtaining all types of fruits through hoe gathering by 1.7 times.
    • However, the number of fruits obtained through Buried Trace remains unchanged.


Alchemy Byproduct (Mysterious Catalyst) → Powder Item Exchange

Among the basic materials, powder items are readily available in substantial quantities through production nodes. To address specific alchemical needs or unforeseen situations, a new exchange system has been introduced, allowing you to temporarily acquire powder items using Mysterious Catalysts.
  • Added an exchange system to allow the exchange of powder items with the "Mysterious Catalyst", which can be obtained when performing alchemy.
Required Item Exchange Item
Mysterious Catalyst x10
▼ Select one of the following for exchange:
Powder of Flame x200
Powder of Rifts x200
Powder of Earth x200
Powder of Time x200
Shining Powder x5

Unintended Byproducts During Alchemy

The inclusion of a probability-based system in alchemy, resulting in the acquisition of various items during synthesis, was initiated to enhance alchemy's characteristic of producing a diverse range of items. Nevertheless, the current demand for significant inventory and storage space to engage in alchemy has introduced an additional hurdle. To mitigate this, less versatile items like Wheat Flour and Deep Frying Oil have been streamlined, and more valuable items with greater utility have been introduced for acquisition.
  • Added and removed the following items among the unintended byproducts that can be obtained when performing alchemy..
Removed Items Wheat Flour, Deep Frying Oil, Destruction/Guardian/Life Spirit Stone (green/blue grade)
Melted Gold Shard, Gold Ingot, Broken Alchemy Stone Shard, Tenacious Origin of Life
Added Items Unknown Seed, Remnants of Burnt Spirits, Alchemy Stone Shard, Dead Tree Essence
  • Adjusted the probability of obtaining the following unintended byproducts as a result of removing some unintended byproducts:
    • Cron Stone, Memory Fragment, Hard Black Crystal Shard, Gold Bar 10G, Rough Opulent Crystal, Ancient Spirit Dust, Metal Solvent, Gem Polisher, Clear Liquid Reagent, Pure Powder Reagent, Oil of Regeneration, Oil of Storms, Oil of Corruption, Oil of Tranquility, Gold Bar 1G, Black Stone (Weapon), Black Stone (Armor).

Unknown Seed

We've broadened the sources for obtaining one of the rarest materials in alchemy, the Truffle Mushroom. Previously, it could only be found through Gathering in specific locations or monster zones. Now, you have the option to grow Truffle Mushroom Hypha to obtain mushrooms.

However, considering the rarity of this material, preserving its scarcity is crucial. Thus, we've designed the Truffle Mushroom Hypha to prevent Plant Breeding, allowing only Harvesting.

Given its low probability of acquisition during alchemy, we anticipate that avid alchemists will naturally come across and utilize it.

Unknown Seed
  • During alchemy synthesis, there is a low probability of obtaining Unknown Seeds.
    • By performing Simple Alchemy with 1 Unknown Seed and 1 Truffle Mushroom, you can obtain Truffle Mushroom Hypha.
    • Truffle Mushroom Hypha takes up 10 grids in the garden and cannot be bred.
    • Truffle Mushroom Hypha can only be harvested once when fully grown.
      • When harvested, a large amount of Truffle Mushrooms can be obtained.
    • On average, you can obtain 60 Truffle Mushrooms when harvesting Truffle Mushroom Hypha.
    • You can obtain White Truffle Mushrooms according to a set probability.
White Truffle Mushroom
  • When harvesting Truffle Mushroom Hypha, there is a low chance of obtaining White Truffle Mushrooms.
    • White Truffle Mushrooms are traded at a higher price and can be used as a substitute for Truffle Mushrooms in the Elixir of Detection recipe to obtain better results.
White Truffle Mushroom
[Alchemy Recipe (at least Alchemy Master 1)]
Oil of Storms x1 + Pure Powder Reagent x6 + White Truffle Mushroom x3 + Trace of Savagery x3 + Old Tree Bark x2
[Alchemy Result]
Elixir of Sharp Detection x25-35
  • Changed the icon of the Truffle Mushroom item.
※ The base price and max price for Truffle Mushroom, Unknown Seed, Truffle Mushroom Hypha, and White Truffle Mushroom in the Central Market are as follows.
Item Base Price Max Price
Truffle Mushroom 100,000 Silver 200,000 Silver
Unknown Seed 4,000,000 Silver 20,000,000 Silver
Truffle Mushroom Hypha 4,000,000 Silver 20,000,000 Silver
White Truffle Mushroom 3,500,000 Silver 15,000,000 Silver


Register Alchemy Materials to Central Market

We've introduced a change that allows you to list specific alchemical materials like Thick Turo Blood, Turo Heart, Abyssal Essence, and Remnants of Burnt Spirits on the Central Market.
Previously, adventurers had to venture into monster zones to collect these materials for crafting elixirs. For those who didn't practice alchemy, these materials were essentially worthless loot. Now, we've made this adjustment to benefit all adventurers by facilitating transactions on the Central Market.
  • The following items can now be registered and traded on the Central Market:
    • Thick Turo Blood, Turo Heart, Abyssal Essence, and Remnants of Burnt Spirits 
Item Base Price Max Price
Thick Turo Blood 4,000,000 Silver 8,000,000 Silver
Turo Heart 7,500,000 Silver 15,000,000 Silver
Abyssal Essence 2,500,000 Silver 5,000,000 Silver
Remnants of Burnt Spirits 7,500,000 Silver 15,000,000 Silver



Everlasting Herb

  • Increased the probability of obtaining Everlasting Herb through hoe gathering by 30%



Coral Crystal, Blue Whale Oil

  • Added the chance to obtain Coral Crystal and Blue Whale Oil when defeating the following sea monsters:
    • Candidum, Hekaru, Nineshark, Ocean Stalker, Black Rust, Saltwater Crocodile, Lekrashan
    • [Violent] Nineshark, [Violent] Black Rust, [Predator of Vadabin] Black Rust
  • Increased the probability of obtaining Coral Crystal as follows:
    • Candidum: 4.5 times
    • Nineshark: 5 times
    • [Violent] Nineshark: 1.2 times
    • Black Rust: 3.5 times
    • [Predator of Vadabin] Black Rust: 1.5 times
    • [Violent] Black Rust: 1.2 times
    • Saltwater Crocodile: 1.2 times
    • Lekrashan: 1.5 times
  • Added the chance to obtain Griffon Claw when defeating the following Griffons:
    • Immature Griffon, Immature King Griffon, Griffon, King Griffon
    • Ahib Griffon, [Awakened Boss] Ahib Griffon, [Darkened Boss] Ahib Griffon, [Wild] King Griffon


Snowfield Cedar Tree Colony

  • The residents near Erethea's Belt have started to establish a colony of Snowfield Cedar Trees.



Alchemy Product and Ingredient Prices on the Central Market

The prices of certain items crafted through alchemy will be adjusted in order to facilitate smoother trading with the increased supply of materials. This shift is aimed at normalizing the selling prices of crafted items, which were impacted by the rising costs of primary materials in July. Consequently, items crafted from these increased materials will offer a broader spectrum of pricing options. Furthermore, in cases where demand increases and pre-orders are made, we aim to increase the opportunities for goods to be supplied through the Central Market.

We apologize for not adequately explaining these intentions and hastily disclosing only the adjustments to the prices, causing concern among many adventurers. We will continue to make improvements to ensure that both those who want to craft elixirs and those who want to purchase them from the market can enjoy greater convenience. Thank you.

Monster Zone Trace Items and Junk Loot

We have made loot adjustments in monster zones that generated relatively lower revenue when compared to some high level Monster Zones. We will continue to make adjustments to provide adventurers with a broader range of options for their choice of monster zones.

After the ongoing class PvE balance adjustments are completed, we will conduct a comprehensive revenue balance adjustment for all monster zones. Our aim is to address the concerns expressed by many adventurers regarding factors such as required equipment level, risk, fatigue, and more.

We appreciate your ongoing feedback. Thank you.
