Dehkia's Lantern

Last Update: April 3, 2024
 

Dehkia’s Lantern was added with today’s update.

When used in Ash Forest and Olun’s Valley, Dehkia’s Lantern activates in the field and the affected monsters awaken, becoming more powerful. This enables our Adventurers to try for better loot.

This content was prepared as a means to more actively utilize the fields of Black Desert. After the Calpheon and Elvia update, there was a shortage of monster zones for skilled adventurers for a long time. However, through Dehkia’s Lantern, we can expand the zones for these adventurers more quickly. They're not completely, but we’ve designed it to provide some new entertainment, so we hope you enjoy playing it.

Dehkia’s Lantern will also be applied to Thornwood Forest, Tunkuta, and Cyclops Land after Ash Forest and Olun’s Valley, and we will prepare for a smooth transition to the new zone, Ulukita. We will also try to improve the existing monster zones as quickly as possible. ※ Please note that during the 2 weeks after the Dehkia’s Lantern update, crystals will not be destroyed even if you die.
