Rare animals have been sighted in the Black Desert world. They are hard to find, but we hope that coming across these rare animals, filling out the Rare Hunting Guide one by one, and obtaining new titles along the way will add a new element of enjoyment for our Adventures. We will continue to add new rare animals with their own unique characteristics—please stay tuned! You can also get information on the rare animals from the villagers living in Behr, which may soon become a booming hunting village! We also added [Bonus] quests to hunting; all you have to do is complete some rather straightforward quests to receive rewards unique to each region and short but powerful buffs.

Monster

● Fixed the issue where the alert system would stop activating after a certain amount of time for the Biraghi Den monster zone in Elvia Realm.
● Fixed the issue where the Elite Al Rhundi Rebels, summoned through Al Rhundi's Secret Orders in the Castle Ruins in Elvia Realm, would sporadically disappear.

 

 

NPC, Background, Sound

● Lerao Island's Ravio, who became a barterer to hear many different tales from Adventurers, is sad that there are fewer visitors to the island nowadays. Ravio has asked Igor Bartali, chief of Velia, for construction laborers after hearing that many Adventurers are finding it difficult to enter the island.

- Laborers are working on construction on parts of Lerao Island so that large ships will be able to approach the island more easily.

● Changed the locations of the barterer NPCs on the following islands:
- Pakuo of Invernen Island
- Mulicia of Tinberra Island

We are working continuously to resolve issues that may interfere with the enjoyment of Great Ocean bartering by our Adventurers—issues such as getting stuck on certain parts of the topography or having difficulty interacting with Barterers.

 

Quest, Knowledge

● Added the word 'Elvia' to titles of daily hunting quests only available on the Elvia server.
 

 

UI

● Added a more detailed description to the Central Market's Sell UI about the quantity restriction according to Family Fame for Pearl items you can sell.

● Added a loading image that shows the backs of Hashashin, Berserker, Warrior, Ranger, and Witch.

Added 4 other companions in accordance to Adventurer feedback that the previous image of a solo Warrior made him look lonely.
● Changed the 'Canceled' message displayed when you cancel a worker's work to 'Canceling.'
● Changed the purchase icon that appears when you run out of inventory slots or reach your weight limit to display the Buy UI.
● Changed the following check box features so that they will be saved after reloading Settings Archives and changing characters.
- Continuously use BreezySail
- Send to tray when quitting
● Added a 'Don't show again today' option to the notice on the Expiring Item window.
● Changed Gamepad UI so that you can save settings with hotkeys instead of pressing on the Apply/Confirm button in Settings.
● Added the Black Spirit's Rage menu to the New Menu in Gamepad UI.
● Removed the Fishing Event guide widget displayed with the Fishing UI, as the event period has ended.

 

System

● Fixed the issue where prices that shouldn't change would change when items of a certain category on pre-order for maximum or minimum prices would be sold.

The 'certain categories' that we mentioned refer to weapons like Kzarka, Dandelion, and Blackstar. To prevent Central Market abusing, we put weapons into the same category regardless of grade, so that prices will shift no matter what item is sold. Prices that should have remained the same shifted while in this process, and we have fixed this issue.
