Skill Name Skill Effect

 With this update, three passive skills exclusive to Node Wars and Conquest Wars are now available for all classes. Each of these skills will increase one of the following: Melee DP, Ranged DP, or Magic DP. But be warned - you can learn only one of the three skills at a time, so choose wisely! (For instance, if you choose Yianaros's Light to increase your Magic DP, you will not be able to acquire Pilgrim's Steps or Knight's Defense.)

Many of Black Desert's greatest battles are waged in Node Wars and Conquest Wars, and the data retrieved from these wars across all regions are constantly being retrieved and examined. Class distribution, damage, and kill-death ratios - stats like these have a huge impact on how large-scale battles play out. To level the playing field and lessen the possibility of a battle being too heavily influenced by these factors, we've added skills that give Adventurers the option to increase DP for a specific type of damage. However, since these skills are specific to Node and Conquest Wars, learning them isn't as simple as just investing Skill Points into the desired skill. These skills also require special Secret Books, which can be acquired by exchanging Resplendent Medals of Honor (a new reward for participating in Node Wars).

Lastly, although each class has been granted individual use of these passive skills, we will look into adding guild skills exclusive to Node Wars and Conquest Wars if conditions are not optimal in these large-scale battles.
