- You must have the appropriate repair tools in your inventory to repair the durability of thec ooking utensils/alchemy tools. You can repair their entire durability by using one repair tool.

Previously, the residence was crowded with a variety of cooking utensils and alchemy tools, but with the addition of the ability to repair cooking utensil/alchemy tools, you can now install just one tool rather than setting up multiple tools. We hope this opens up options for Adventurers who enjoy cooking/alchemy and decorating their residences. The weight of the repair tool in the Black Desert Global Lab used to be 10LT, but it was changed to 1LT because Barmalo Hona and Lomerun only put in the essential tools to repair. The repair items stacks and can be moved to storage using maids, just like it does in Global Labs, so we hope you find it useful.
● Added a filter on the Barter Information that distinguishes trade information by level.
- The filter that distinguishes the trade information by level are as follows:
- By setting the filter to "All Barters," you can filter items in order by level as was the default prior to the update.
● Added a filter on the Barter Information to distinguish the trade items based on their obtainable amount.
- This filter feature only applies to the following trade information which has a different number of exchanges depending on the island.
* [Lv. 1 -> Lv. 2]
* [Lv. 2 -> Lv. 3]
- Added the following filters to distinguish trade items based on their obtainable amount:
* More than 1
* 2 or more
* 3 or more
- This filter can only be used if the trade information level is set to the following:
* [Lv. 1 -> Lv. 2]
* [Lv. 2 -> Lv. 3]
* All Barters
● Added the button () that sorts the trade routes by distance closest to your location on the Trade Item / Barter Information screen.
- Clicking the button will sort trade routes in order that is closest to your location.
* If this function is used together with the level/quantity filter, it will sort the desired barter item in order based on what is closest to you.
● Added a function to see items in the Central Market by pressing LMB on the button from the World Map (M) and the Barter Information screen for materials that can be obtained on land and through the Central Market.
 
It was previously difficult to navigate the Barter Information UI because setting the filter by level displayed both exchangeable items and items that will be exchanged. Some of the items were also sorted by level, giving the impression that the filter had been applied incorrectly. Items will now be properly differentiated by level, and the filter can also be set to arrange items by exchangeable amount. Adventurers will now be able to find items they need or want based on their location, and we believe it will make for a more enjoyable experience at sea as a result of these changes. We're also working on adding more quality-of-life improvements, which we hope you'll look forward to.
● Changed the Composition/Score screen to enable the use of Ctrl + C (Copy) and Ctrl + V (Paste) and not have the mouse cursor disappear when the CTRL key is pressed while the Composition Note is open.
● Added different alerts in the 1:1 chat with friends.
- You can use this feature to set individual messenger alerts for each friend in your friend list.
● Changed to no longer display guild recruit announcements if the guild recruit notice hasn't been updated in 3 months.
● Improved resurrecting in the Red Battlefield to automatically resurrect the character in the resurrection area of the Red Battlefield if they try to exit the battlefield while the character is dead.
● Added a new entrance screen when entering the Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion, from the Ancient Stone Chamber, where you can choose which stronghold to enter.
- Please note that you can only enter Vahmalkea at the moment.

 


Quest, Knowledge

● Karashu, the alchemist in Sand Grain Bazaar, buried an alchemy device somewhere deep in Hystria Ruins. When the Ancient Teleporter connects to the Hystria Ruins, the light that seeps out from the alchemy device will reveal where it is connected.
- It is said that Adventurers who help Karashu can see the light that it emits from the ancient teleporter.
- Go to Quest (O) - Preferred Quest Type - Combat in order to accept this quest.

▲ Aakman Temple teleporter / Hystria Ruins teleporter before completing the quest

 

▲ Hystria Ruins teleporter after completing the quest

The teleporter found in the desert frequently led players to undesirable monster zones, because it was difficult to predict where it would take them. In this update, we've added an effect to the teleporter device that leads to Hystria Ruins. The teleporter devices can be distinguished by competing a simple quest, so we hope you like this change.

- The highest ranking guild/alliance will win and become the lords of the territory.
