MAJOR UPDATES - Spring Season Begins!

Today's update marks the beginning of the "Spring Season."
Since last Autumn Season, we've been adding improved Life-skilling content such as increased items collected from Gathering including seasonal enhancement materials on the season servers. The theme for the Spring Season is "Fishing."
First off, we decided to increase the amount of Combat EXP gained from Fishing threefold, thereby encouraging adventurers to branch out to different playstyles to avoid feeling restricted to PvE content for growth.
We've also added the coelacanth to the seasonal waters, which can be exchanged for "Dreamy Crystals of Balance," items that grant guaranteed enhancement of Capotia accessories. We've also greatly reduced the difficutly of the weekly season quests that awarded you with seasonal enhancement materials as well. We hope that all of these quality-of-life improvements will enhance your new season character's lifestyle in the Spring Season.
  • Spring Season has sprung. (Feb 28, 2023 (Tue) after maintenance - Apr 19, 2023 (Wed) before maintenance)
    • You gain boosted EXP when playing on a season server, where you can equip "Tuvala gear" to quickly level up your season character while completing the season pass.
    • Select "Season Character" in the Character Creation menu when creating a new character to access the season servers.
    • Season characters can access both season servers and normal servers. Normal characters cannot access the season servers.
    • Season characters can only equip seasonal gear issued by completing the main questline and cannot mount up on Dream Horses.
    • For more information, please refer to the Adventurer's Guide - [Season Servers & Characters].
    • With the start of a new season, Rulupee-1 servers have been changed to Season-1, Season Arsha servers.

[Spring Season] Thrice the Combat EXP Gains from Fishing!

  • The Combat EXP gains from "Fishing" during the Spring Season
have been tripled as mentioned in [Increased Combat EXP Gains from Life-skilling].

[Spring Season] Level Up with the Seasonal Fish, [Season] Coelacanth!

  • You can fish up the "[Season] Coelacanth" from the following locations during the Spring Season. (At all times)

  • Adjusted the probability of fishable items from the above locations due to the addition of the [Season] Coelacanth for season servers. (Normal servers remain unchanged.)
  • The "[Season] Coelacanth" is only fishable on Season Servers, and can be exchanged for a variety of items such as the "Dreamy Crystal of Balance" (thrice per Family), which can be used for guaranteed enhancement of Capotia accessories.

What are Capotia Accessories?
- Capotia accessories are accessories that bear identical stats to the "Ring of Crescent Guardian," "Basilisk's Belt," "Narc Ear Accessory," and "Ogre Ring." However, they cannot be registered on the Central Market.

How Do I Get a Capotia Accessory?
- Here are the means to obtain Capotia accessories.
1. Any adventurer can open up their Challenge (Y) window and obtain one of the four Capotia accessories at TRI (III) enhancement level. (Once per Family)
※ This challenge grants you the Capotia accessory (formerly Cloud accessory) once per Family.

Lv. 58: Capotia Ring Lv. 62: TRI (III) Capotia Ring
Lv. 59: Capotia Earring Lv. 63: TRI (III) Capotia Earring

How Do I Enhance Capotia Accessories?
- Capotia accessories require the identical accessory to be enhanced at a specific success rate.
- However, there is a means for guaranteed enhancement for TRI (III) to PEN (V) Capotia accessories.
1. Any adventurer can open up their Challenge (Y) window and obtain a "Dreamy Crystal of Balance" by logging in each day (up to 21 crystals).

  • Progressing through the Season Pass for the Spring Season will award you with [Season] Spring Seals.
    • Normal rewards: Up to 80 seals / Black Spirit Pass: Up to 40 additional seals

[Spring Season] Recurring Weekly Season Quest Improvements

We've reduced the number of monsters required to be subjugated for the weekly season quests. We originally designed these quests to require numbers befitting the amount of Tuvala enhancement materials they awarded, but, as with all things with the passage of time, we felt the numbers to be a bit too high. It was good to see adventurers banding together in platoons to subjugate the mushrooms, but we felt it was time to give a fighting chance to individual adventurers as well.
  • Adjusted the following weekly season quest objectives for the Spring Season.

Quest to Reobtain [Sailing] Torn Treasure Map Piece

Following the previous barter update, today's update brings improvements to the Sea Crystal and Torn Treasure Map Piece items used to upgrade a ship's stats. For Torn Treasure Map Pieces, which could only be obtained through Saltwater Crocodiles, specific pieces were required to complete the map. Over time, unnecessary pieces would accumulate, so we've added a new way to obtain Torn Treasure Map Pieces to prevent such an inconvenience.
Also, we've not only increased the amount of Origin items, which are required to craft higher-grade Sea Crystals, gained from Simple Alchemy but also added a new alchemy recipe so Adventurers who wish to craft a Margoria Sea Crystal of a different stat can do so.
  • The Old Moon Guild has started proposing new deals for adventurers who've set sail in search of treasures in the Great Ocean.
    • We've added a new quest where you can obtain a new Torn Treasure Map Piece. Hand over Torn Treasure Map Piece x2 and Ravinia's Moss Remover x3 to Elro of Oquilla's Eye for the quest.

To prevent adventurers from feeling forced to engage in combat-based PvE activities, we allowed for some Combat EXP gains from Life-skilling activities early on. However, these gains were determined according to figures appropriate back in the day, so we decided to increase the amount of Combat EXP granted for Gathering, Processing, Cooking/Alchemy, Fishing, Horse Taming, and Farming activities to numbers more appropriate to current BDO levels. We hope this continues to encourage adventurers to not feel locked to PvE playstyles, and we will continue to make improvements where necessary for these Combat EXP gains in the future as well. Thank you.

Improved Dragon Scale Fossil for Advice of Valks Exchange

Prior to the quality of life update to the Enhancement UI, the Dragon Scale Fossil to Advice of Valks exchange was the main source of acquiring stacks for enhancement. With today’s update, we’ve made further improvements to that exchange. Not only have we lessened the required number of fossils to exchange for Advice of Valks (+20) and (+40) but we’ve also added Advice of Valks (+30) and (+50) to the exchange system. We hope this makes it easier for our adventurers to acquire the right stack when they need it.
  • Improved the exchange system for obtaining Advice of Valks with Dragon Scale Fossils.
    • NPC Ulan of Eilton has begun exchanging Dragon Scale Fossils for Advice of Valks.
    • Items available for exchange with Dragon Scale Fossils are as follows:

Added Simple Alchemy Recipe to Convert Green-grade [Party] Elixir Blue-grade [Party] Elixir.

Compared to blue-grade party elixirs, green-grade party elixirs have always paled in the strength of their buff effects and longevity of their durations. Equally worse was there being no means to convert a green-grade party elixir to its blue-grade counterpart if you had crafted one by accident. Hence, we’ve added a Simple Alchemy recipe that will allow you to craft blue-grade party elixirs for such situations. You will need to purchase Ibellab’s Essence from a material vendor for this recipe, and Mass Process is also available as well.
  • Added a Simple Alchemy recipe to process three green-grade party elixirs into one blue-grade party elixir.

To help adventurers utilize their Central Market warehouse more efficiently, we have reduced the weight (VT) of equipment, accessories, and most other items by a significant amount. Now, equipment items such as weapons and armor only weigh 1/5 of their previous weight, and accessories will weigh 1/4 of their previous weight. Additionally, we've reduced the weight for items obtained in large quantities from killing monsters, i.e. Black Stones and Caphras Stones, and elixirs.

Reduced Weight of Items in the Central Market Warehouse

  • Weight (VT) of items in the Central Market Warehouse has been changed as follows:
Item Category Before After

All Equipment (except Tools)

(Weapons, Armor, Fishing Rods, Floats, etc.)
50 VT 10 VT

All Accessories
20 VT 5 VT
All Materials 0.1 VT 0.1 VT (unchanged)
Pearl Items 0 VT 0 VT (unchanged)
▲ All Other Items

(Black Stone, Memory Fragment, Caphras Stone, Ancient Relic Crystal Shard, Elixirs, etc.)
1 VT 0.3 VT


  • Changed so that Reminiscence of Battle items cannot be transported through the storage "Transport" function.
  • Changed [Event] Origin of Dark Hunger item's removal date to Mar 22, 2023 (before maintenance).
    • The [Event] Origin of Dark Hunger's item description has been changed accordingly.
  • Changed the How to Obtain part of the Dreamy Crystal of Balance description.
  • Changed the color of the Mercenary's Life item icon so it can be differentiated from Mercenary's Experience.


Previously, you had to complete a certain quest along with the tutorial with one character in your Family in order to skip the cutscenes in the Tutorial. Now, even adventurers who have not met those requirements can skip those cutscenes as well.

Skip Tutorial Cutscenes with 1 Run-through

  • Improved the skip feature for tutorial cutscenes unlocked after completing the tutorial once as follows:
    • Before: Complete the tutorial once and the "[Tutorial] Black Spirit's Behest" quest to skip the cutscenes.
    • Now: Complete the tutorial once to skip the cutscenes.
※ You can acquire the "You Were the Key" Knowledge during the tutorial.
※ Adventurers who completed the previous conditions to skip the cutscene before this update will acquire the knowledge "You Were the Key" with this update.

Skip Balenos/Everfrost Main Questline Cutscenes with 1 Run-through

  • Improved the skip feature for Balenos/Everfrost main questline cutscenes unlocked after completing the questlines once as follows:
    • Before: Complete "[Balenos] Journey's End" and/or "[Everfrost] Journey's End" quests once to skip the cutscenes.
    • After: Complete the respective main questlines once to skip the cutscenes.

  • Added "Epheria's Star" as a reward for winning the Conquest War in Calpheon, Mediah, or Valencia. The item will rewarded to the Guild Storage of your guild/alliance.

      • The "Present" button is available in the Guild Storage found on the Guild (G) window, and only works for Epheria's Star.

    • The guild member who is awarded with the Epheria's Star can accept a special quest from Philaberto Falasi in Port Epheria. Complete this quest to obtain the "Ship License: Epheria Galleon" and the [Captain Epheria] title, which is a temporary title that lasts for 7 days.

※ You can only ride and control an Epheria Galleon if you have the [Captain Epheria] title, but you can only access other features even if you do not have the title or if it has expired.

"Get the upgrade materials for Flame Tower/Barricade!" "What do we need?" "How many do we need to upgrade Flame Tower?"
Now you'll no longer need to worry about the Node War tier versus the type of annex you're trying to upgrade. Upgrade any annex with just 10 Iron Ingots and 10 Melted Copper Shards, which we hope will make your Node/Conquest Wars slightly less strenuous.

Unified Node/Conquest War Annex Upgrade Materials

  • Unified the materials needed to upgrade Barricade and Flame Tower/Hwacha as follows:

Barricade Upgrade Materials (Tiers 1-4, Conquest War/Sturdy Barricade)
