With the release of Corsair’s Awakening, Lenio has returned to the monster zones of Black Desert in search of his beloved captain!


If you talk to Lenio as a Corsair character, you’ll be happily greeted with a “Cap'n! Yer here! I be looking for ye! Queek!” and receive a Combat EXP +100% & Skill EXP +300% buff! However, if you talk to Lenio as any other class, you’ll be told “If ye ever see me Cap'n, please let me know!” and given a Skill EXP +300% buff!


Let’s not let Lenio down and find him at the monster zones!

Event Buff Details


① Only the most recently obtained event buff will be active, and all other similar buffs will disappear. For example, if you have an active buff from interacting with the Ancient Kyve and you interact with Lenio, then the Ancient Kyve’s buff will disappear and only the Slippery Scallywags' Shanty buff will remain active.


② As such, any past similar event buffs (Mysterious, Knight, Ynix’s Flame, Sandstorm, etc.) that are active will disappear if you receive this event’s buff by interacting with the NPC Lenio.


③ If you receive the exact same event buff while it is already active, the buff’s duration will be refreshed.

E.g.) If you re-acquire the same buff with 50 minutes remaining, then the duration time will be refreshed to 180 minutes.

* The three details mentioned above applies to all similar event buffs.

(Mysterious Knight, Ynix’s Flame, Sandstorm, Ancient Kyve, Slippery Scallywags' Shanty)
