Red Battlefield: Valencia City
Red Battlefield: Valencia is in the heart of the city at the desert’s edge in the world of Black Desert. As such, there are environmental obstacles like houses, roofs, stairs, and other objects found in an urban setting. Be sure to make a note of them and take advantage of them whenever possible.
The Valencia City battlefield does not follow the same rules as the pre-existing battlefield where you kill opponents to earn points for your team.
There are areas within the field for your team to occupy. Your team will have to keep the area occupied to earn points.
Therefore, you can be influential to your team’s victory, even if you do not own high-end gear, by leading your team strategically on the battlefield.
Take advantage of your surroundings in Valencia City.
Contest the opponent team’s occupied areas.
Protect your team’s occupied areas.
Enjoy taking out opponents that are trying to occupy an area!
How to Enter
You can enter the Red Battlefield from anywhere in the world of Black Desert by going to:
Main menu (hotkey: Esc) → War (F7) → Red Battlefield
After selecting the Red Battlefield, you can select the server you want to enter under “Battlefield: Valencia City.”
Note that only season characters can enter the servers with this icon () on it.
Above you can see the “Battlefield: Valencia City” server list in the Red Battlefield Status window. Season characters can also enter the season-exclusive servers.
Teams & SystemsRed Battlefield: Valencia City splits Adventurers into two teams (Black Desert & Red Desert) like the other battlefields.
When you enter the battlefield, you can see the current state of the battle and prepare.
This is where the Black and Red Desert camps and the areas to occupy are on the map.
Once each team has at least 1 Adventurer, the battle will begin after a short prep time.
(Adventurers can enter the Red Battlefield in the first 10 minutes of the battle, but it will be locked after 10 min has elapsed.)
The battle goes for 20 minutes. Each team can try to occupy the areas during that time.
There are a total of 5 areas that can be occupied. One occupied area gives 1 point per second.
You can differentiate each area’s occupation status by their color.

Victory goes to the first team to reach 3,000 points or the team with more points at the end of the 20-minute battle.
There are no penalties for dying in the Red Battlefield, so you can continue to vie for those areas throughout the battle’s duration. When your character dies, you can instantly resurrect them back to your camp. So, do not fear and charge in!
You can see the state of each area on the UI.

You can use your regular potions in the Red Battlefield, but you can also buy the battlefield-exclusive potions for much cheaper via the Quartermaster NPC Daz.
The Red Battlefield-exclusive potions cost 1 silver each and weigh 0.01LT.
So, it’s much better to buy the potions from the quartermaster within the Red Battlefield.
This buff increases your Evasion and Damage Reduction stats. It’s a great strategic tool to use on the battlefield.
Use the Strong Protection buff to tip the scales against opponents in contested areas.
The same NPC also has a daily quest.
If you show him 5 Battlefield Tokens you’ve obtained from participating in the Red Battlefield, you will be rewarded with Contribution EXP 300, recover 200 Energy, Battlefield Token x3, Tears of War x1, and Ancient Spirit Dust x100.
The daily quest gives you rewards that can help you progress with combat and life skill content.
Finally, you can also enter the Red Battlefield with a Lv. 60 trial character that can be made instantly without any previous gameplay. You can then purchase items from the Red Battlefield NPC Haz to participate in the Red Battlefield with these characters with ease.
RewardsYou can get Combat and Skill EXP, silver, and Battlefield Tokens at the end of a Red Battlefield match.
The number of tokens you get depends on your team winning/losing the match.
Red Seal x5, Combat/Skill EXP, 6,000,000 Silver
Red Seal x2, Combat/Skill EXP, 4,000,000 Silver
Combat and Skill EXP will be given immediately to the character that participated when the match ends.
The silver and token rewards will be sent to your Black Spirit's Safe (hotkey: B).
You can exchange a certain amount of Battlefield Tokens for items.
If you have 50 of them, you can exchange them for a Red Essence via Ornella, the Arms Dealer NPC in Heidel.
You can heat the Red Essence with certain magic crystals to make an even more powerful crystal.
You can jump into the Red Battlefield to enjoy fun PvP content at any time, from anywhere!
