Events Aug 18, 2021, 13:00 (UTC) Scallywag Cannonball Hunt



It has already been a week since Corsair’s Awakening has been released, and the Slippery Scallywags are nowhere near done celebrating it!  


After a particularly important brainstorming full of mischief, they have decided to prepare a big treasure hunt with the GMs – because which pirate doesn’t like a good ol’ treasure hunt? 


So, prepare your best detective skills and join in on the fun! 


Scallywag Cannonball Hunt

Event Period 

- From August 18 (Wed) after maintenance to August 25 (Wed) before maintenance. 


Event Details 

① The Slippery Scallywags have taken their reliable cannon and scattered hints on all Official Black Desert social media about a special in-game location. 


② Visit our Official Black Desert social media (and search carefully) to find all of them and arrange the letters to form the name of that location. 


Here is one of them (and it counts too!): 



▲ One of the cannonballs fired by the Slippery Scallywags to help you find the location! 


Tip! Here are the links to our Official Black Desert social media that you can also find on the bottom of the home page:

Official Black Desert social media







*The cannonball present in this event notice counts as one letter towards the final name of the location. 
*Only the letters found on our official Black Desert social media mentioned above, and posted by us, count as hints for the event. 

*A cannonball counts only once when present on a translated page. I.e.) The one in this event notice is also present in the French, German and Spanish versions of this notice, but it only counts once! 
*Similar letters can be found on different platforms. If the letters are on different media, they will both be counted as two separate letters. 

③ Once you have figured out the name of that location, find it in-game. From there, the GMs will be taking over for a fun hide-and-seek!  

First, find GM Silver to accept the hide-and-seek quest (he should not be too hard to find 😉) 


④ To complete the quest, you must find the following 7 GMs, finishing the quest with GM Quartz. 

GMs participating in the hide-and-seek

(Starting GM) GM Silver

GM Gold

GM Emerald

GM Ruby

GM Opal

GM Spinel

(End of quest GM) GM Quartz

Tip! Besides GM Silver and GM Quartz, you do not need to find the GMs in a specific order!


⑤ Upon completing the quest, you will receive a medal looking like this: 



▲ [Event] Black Desert GM's Medal


⑥ All Adventurers that received the medal during the event period will receive the following rewards: 

Event Rewards
