• You can convert your season character to a normal character via graduation on a season server and have the restrictions on equipping gear lifted.
• You can proceed with graduation yourself at any point. (Season Pass completion is required)
• Your Tuvala gear will also automatically be converted when you graduate. (You cannot further enhance your converted Tuvala gear.)

What is Season Graduation?
You can convert your season character to a normal character via “graduation.”
You can progress further with no restrictions on equipping normal gear, although you can no longer log into a season server with your now normal character.
We strongly recommend novice Adventurers to take their time in leveling and gearing up their season character to the maximum possible before attempting to graduate from the season servers, even if they’ve already completed the season pass.
◈ Season Graduation
Graduation is always available, but you can only graduate from a season server after you’ve completed your season character’s season pass. Please be careful with your decision, since graduating consumes a season character ticket, and if you no longer have at least one of these you cannot create a season character again nor log into a season server.
You must have received all the season pass rewards after completing all objectives in order to graduate.
If you are using the Black Spirit Pass, you must claim all Black Spirit Pass rewards as well.
If you have purchased the Black Spirit Pass and haven’t used it, it is recommended that you do so before Season Graduation, since you cannot use it after graduation, and all rewards will be lost if you haven’t claimed them before.
Once you’ve completed all the requirements, you can graduate by pressing the Graduate button that will appear in the Season Pass window.
Your season character will be converted into a normal character, and will automatically be relogged into the game upon pressing the Graduate button.
◈ Converting Tuvala Gear
Once graduation is complete and your season character is converted into a normal character, you cannot equip season-exclusive Tuvala gear.
Upon graduation, each piece of your season Tuvala gear set with the highest enhancement level will be automatically converted into normal Tuvala gear, and all other duplicates removed (except for rings and earrings which will have a maximum of two of each converted).
E.g.) If you have one PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves and one TET (IV) Tuvala Gloves, only your PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves will be converted and the other will be removed.
(Reference) Order of Priority When Season Tuvala Gear Is Converted into Normal Tuvala Gear:
|Order of Priority for Tuvala Gear Conversion
|① Tuvala gear of the highest enhancement level for each set piece.
(One for each piece, with the exception of up to two earrings and two rings = maximum of 13)
E.g.) If you have “PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves” and “TRI (III) Tuvala Gloves,” your PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves will be automatically converted.
If you have two or more gear of the same enhancement level, the piece to be converted will be chosen according to the second order of priority.
② Tuvala gear branded with the Item Brand Spell Stone
E.g.) If you have branded PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves and PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves that are not branded, your branded PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves will be converted.
If you have two or more gear pieces of the same enhancement level, and they are either both branded or both not branded, conversion will be applied according to the third order of priority.
③ The most recently crafted Tuvala gear
E.g.) If you have a non-branded PEN (V) Tuvala Longsword crafted on Nov. 1 and a non-branded PEN (V) Tuvala Amulet crafted on Nov. 10, your PEN (V) Tuvala Amulet that was crafted more recently will be converted.
* If your Inventory is full, you’ll find them in your storage in Heidel.
It is recommended that you use or sell “Tuvala Ores,” “Time-filled Black Stones,” “Refined Magical Black Stones,” consumable items including other materials and items relevant to the season server, and gift boxes for leveling up before you graduate, since they will all be removed.

After Season Server Graduation
Once you’ve graduated from the season server, you can enjoy Black Desert in your own unique way by exploring the different regions within Black Desert’s world, go challenge stronger monsters or other Adventurers, or work on developing your life skills.
It is recommended that you try the quests for guaranteed PEN (V) accessories and guaranteed PEN (V) boss gear if you wish to become stronger. If you want to experience a variety of content in Black Desert, such as Hunting, Cooking, Gathering, etc. you can also learn about them and receive rewards via the Progression Pass.
◈ Quest for Guaranteed PEN (V) Accessory
You can take on daily quests to work towards a PEN (V) accessory of end-game quality at a guaranteed success rate.
Please check the [Guaranteed PEN (V) Accessory] page for a full explanation of this feature.
◈ Quest for Guaranteed PEN (V) Boss Gear
You can use your PEN (V) Tuvala gear obtained from the season server to upgrade it to PEN (V) boss gear, the ultimate end-game goal, via reform stones at a guaranteed success rate.
Please check the [Guaranteed PEN (V) Boss Gear] page for a full explanation of this feature.
◈ Progression Pass
It’s a system that guides you through a variety of content in Black Desert’s world and grants rewards.
You can start the Progression Pass by pressing the Progression Pass icon on the upper right of the screen ( ). (You cannot work through the Progression Pass with a season character.)
Lastly, you can check the [Season Server FAQ] page for a list of frequently asked questions regarding season content.
◈ TET (IV) Blackstar Weapon
After reaching level 61 with a season character and completing the main questline up to Mediah/Mountain of Eternal Winter or Land of the Morning Light, you will be granted with 1 TET (IV) Blackstart weapon in your Challenge window (Y). You won't be able to equip this weapon while playing with your season character, however, once you graduate you will be able to equip this weapon.
This weapon is the best one that can be found in-game and it can be a good substitute for one of your Tuvala weapons. Try to enhance it to PEN (V) once you have enough Cronstones.
◈ Tag Characters for Post-Graduation Growth
You can tag two characters in your family, which allows you to instantly switch between the tagged characters. Tagged characters will share their in-game location at all times.
(For example, if tagged character A moves to a monster zone, then switches to tagged character B, B will log into the exact same location in said monster zone.)
Note that you can only tag normal characters.
The tag system has been revamped to allow tagged characters to now share EXP gains.
By alternating between tagged characters, you could potentially level up multiple characters at a time.
1. Select the "Tag Characters" icon located on the upper left portion of the screen. Link two characters A & B (who are both at least Lv. 7) whom you wish to tag.
2. Leveling with character A will accumulate the same amount of EXP gained to character B.
3. Log into character B, open the "Tag Characters" window, and press the "Get EXP" button to claim the EXP gained by character A.
( You can also level with character B and claim EXP gains on character A. )
– Combat/Skill EXP gained through Black Spirit's Training does not accumulate.
– Only Skill EXP gained through PvE combat will be accumulated.
* When obtaining the accumulated EXP, leveling up will be temporarily halted once at Lv. 49, Lv. 56, and Lv. 60.
- Each time you will need to press the "Get EXP" again to level up with the accumulated EXP to the next threshold.
* You will also need to complete the "[To Level 50!] Go Beyond Your Own Limits" quest through the Black Spirit (/) in order to level from Lv. 49 to Lv. 50.
Once you've tagged two characters, you can also enable them to share the same gear. This feature is known as "Item Copy."
Complete the Marni's Suspicious Device questline available from Lv. 56 through the Black Spirit (hotkey: , ) to unlock the Item Copy feature. You can find the questline on the Quest window (hotkey: O) → Suggested → [ADV Support] [Lv. 56] Item Copy with Marni's Device!
When copying items, all equipped defense gear, weapons, accessories, tools, alchemy stones, and artifacts will be copied into the bags of the tagged character.
Copying items consumes "Marni's Unstable Fuel."
Please note that the copy is mostly like taking a screenshot of that moment in time from the character you’re copying the items from. As such, changes such as upgrading alchemy stones or weapons with hearts and cups will not be reflected on the copies.
