Update History


Balenos Main Questline Renewal

The Balenos main questline, which includes Velia, the hometown of many Adventurers, has undergone a renewal. We've added fully-voiced cutscenes, a graphical makeover for the major NPCs, reorganized the quest pathing, all for the sake of improving our focus on storytelling. We hope this renewal will help our new Adventurers better understand the world of Black Desert, and our veteran Adventurers enjoy a fresh, updated look to the Balenos main questline.
We believe updating existing content to be as important as adding new content, and we will strive to continue with improving the game.

● Renewed the Balenos Main Questline with fully-voiced cutscenes and a storyline that better fleshes out the NPCs and their relationships with each other.
- After the opening tutorial with Illezra in the desert ends, choose [Ancient Stone Chamber] instead of [Mountain of Eternal Winter] when prompted to begin this main questline. 
* Characters who chose to start in the [Mountain of Eternal Winter] must complete the "Everfrost main questline," "Sights of Mediah questline," "Succession/Awakening (Drakania only requires Succession) and skill preset questlines" to begin this questline.
- You can find the requirements of this questline under "[Balenos] Breaker of Chains" in Quests (O) - Main tab. 
- Due to the renewal, certain Knowledge entries have been modified while others have been added for the Balenos territory. 
- The Balenos main questline renewal consists of 3 branching stories.
- Completing the renewed Balenos main questline will increase your Amity with the relevant Quest NPCs.
- The renewed Balenos main questline has several Crossroad quests added which will determine the final outcome of the questline.

* Adventurers who have already started the pre-renewal Balenos main questline cannot begin the renewed main questline.
* Season characters who've completed "[Pet] Bareeds' Junaid" will need to complete "[Balenos] Dark Clouds Over Velia" to be able to select the simplified questline. 
* Lv. 1 characters who were already created before this update will need to forfeit all quests, excluding Family quests, in order to begin with the renewed Balenos main questline.
