GM Notes [GM Notes] Atoraxxion is Coming July 21!
Black Desert Jul 14, 2021, 10:00 (UTC)



Atoraxxion is Black Desert’s first-ever co-op dungeon.
What secrets await you in this massive, ancient stronghold?


Find out on July 21!


Before it arrives, let’s find out how you can get ready for Atoraxxion!



Atoraxxion has its own exclusive main questline, which offers an extensive story.

(Just what is Illezra planning?!)


But the first thing you’ll need to do before you can delve into Atoraxxion is get a party of five Adventurers!


In order to complete Atoraxxion’s main questline, you’ll need to cooperate with four other Adventurers. Additionally, you and your four other party members must fulfill the requirements below to accept its main questline!


Atoraxxion Main Questline Requirements
Character must be Lv. 57 or higher, completed either the Succession or Awakening questline and completed the quest: “Invitation from I.”

The “Invitation from I” quest is available after the July 14 update, so make sure to complete the quest ahead of time to jump right into Atoraxxion when it releases!


* More information about the “Invitation from I” quest can be found in the July 14 patch notes.

Recommended Stats for Atoraxxion

[Stats for Elvia servers]
AP 280+
DP 340+

[Stats for normal servers]
AP 250+

DP 300+

* Although these are the recommended stats, keep in mind that strategy, skill usage, and other factors will play a role in your success.

You should also be aware that while Atoraxxion is a co-op dungeon, the areas other than the party exclusive boss zones are open-field combat zones similar to monster zones, where you can encounter other Adventurers.


And if you haven't done so already, don't miss the Atoraxxion Dev Commentary video to learn more about its lore and features.



* For more details about the actual in-game content, please refer to the upcoming July 21 patch notes.

Will be interesting to see how NAEU takes the entry restrictions

@Rilma Should be seen as easy as hell. Fresh graduation out of season should have the gear for it. Pen capotia necklace, tet boss, full pen tuvala, and 2 caphras levels into the awakening weapon should be solid enough.

@KizenY Oh, I know that.

What I mean is that there is a limit to the number of times per week for entry into the dungeon.

@Rilma I see it as there will be a bit of whining about it. PA will either ease it up or sell something to allow more entries. Though my personal view is I have no issue with a limited amount of times per week.

Skeptical until it comes. From what I've seen, its basically a 5-man grind zone with a few area mechanics and a boss at the end. It's not instanced like traditional MMO's would be, so its more akin to Open World dungeons in ESO, but because of the nature
of BDO - OWPvP - you'll be competing with other groups.

I, myself, was hoping it would be instanced. A real dungeon. Not this fake shit they've had in the game since Valencia was released. Adding a boss fight and some area mechanics is nice, but truly I was hoping for it to be instanced. If we only enter it a set
amount of times a week, then why not? If you read the comments on the announcement video for it before the dungeon was released to KR, you could see people EXTREMELY hopeful for this to be an instanced co-op dungeon. At least the rewards are somewhat okay
though, from what I've seen. For now anyways..

@TRNFloyd We will try not to farm you too much friend. :)

@TRNFloyd BDO will never be like Aion, which has instances, such as Adma Stronghold, Fire Temple, Abyss, Dredgion. For that it's then best to play Aion itself, though NCsoft has removed a couple of instances since 6.0. But recently they launched aion classic,
based on version 1.7, which has instances like the abyss.
BDO has other mechanics. For a big part it plays like a sologame and it is each on their own. You see that also back in the chatchannels and when doing worldbosses and fieldbosses. If you like cooperation more, then aion is a better game, as aion is made to
work together. BDO is full of soloplayers and often toxic. You won't be invited to join a group in BDO, as groups are pretty non-existend and guilds don't serve a purpose.
