The Ancient Kyve

Events Mar 24, 2021, 10:00 (UTC+8)


There’s been sightings of Sage’s Ancient Kyve around the world of Black Desert. It’s said that interacting with this mysterious object grants you a +300% Skill EXP buff.  


And it seems that Sage holds the secrets to unlock its true potential...

② Interact (R) with the [Disassembled] Ancient Kyve and select ‘Approach the Kyve.’ to receive a ‘Skill EXP +300%’ buff.

③ With the Sage class, you can power up the [Disassembled] Ancient Kyve into the [Rumbling] Ancient Kyve to receive a stronger buff.

Tip! If you’re playing the Sage class, try interacting (R) with the [Disassembled] Ancient Kyve and select the “Extend your hand onto the Kyve.” option.


④ Interact (R) with the powered up [Rumbling] Ancient Kyve and select ‘Approach the Kyve.’ to receive a Combat EXP +100% and Skill EXP +300% buff.

- This buff has a duration of 180 minutes, but the [Rumbling] Ancient Kyve will disappear 30 minutes after it first appears. Additionally, interacting with the Ancient Kyve will cause any similar buffs (Mysterious Knight, [Disassembled] Ancient Kyve, etc.) to disappear and the Ancient Kyve’s buff to be newly applied. Additionally, interacting with the Ancient Kyve will refresh the buff, removing any similar buffs (Mysterious Knight, [Disassembled] Ancient Kyve, etc.) in the process.

Details Regarding the Ancient Kyve’s Buff


- Only the event buff from the most recent interaction with the Ancient Kyve will apply.

For example, if you have an active Combat EXP +100% and Skill EXP +300% from interacting with the [Rumbling] Ancient Kyve and you interact with the [Disassembled] Ancient Kyve, then the Combat EXP +100% effect will disappear and only the Skill EXP +300% effect will be refreshed.


- If you receive the same buff while it is already active, the buff’s duration will be refreshed.

E.g.) If you re-acquire the buff with 50 minutes remaining on your existing buff, then the duration time will be refreshed to 180 minutes.

* The event buff is the same buff as the one from the Mysterious Knight, Ynix’s Flame, and Sandstorm.
