Greetings Adventurers,


Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on October 20, 2021 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 76 updates and is approximately 875.52 MB.

 


Node War Revamp

 Node War is starting up again with a fresh new take.

 

This time around, there are two major points for Node Wars. First, we added a strategic choice to participating in Node Wars that will enable various forms of tactics to be used. The next point is the increase in rewards for Adventurers that are hungry for glory on the battlefield.

 

The rules of Node Wars were changed to be closer to a "war game" style, where bigger guilds with a lot of members can gradually expand out for bigger gains.

 

However, this also means that smaller guilds with less members can find strategic openings to try and grab nodes as well. We are hoping this will somewhat reduce the imbalance in Node War between bigger guilds and smaller guilds.

 

The maximum number of participants for each node was removed as the entire territory is part of Node War.

 

Not to mention, the rewards for successfully occupying a node have increased not only by the increase in taxes collectible, but also by the addition of rare items that can be purchased from the Node War Shop NPCs.

Additionally, the rewards for masters of guilds that are victorious in both Node War and Conquest War were significantly improved.

 

This was to reward the guild masters that keep working hard for their guilds and to give them loot that matches their supremacy as a guild master of a guild that has gloriously risen victorious on the battlefield.

 


 

This is quite a big change for Node Wars, and may come across as a bit daunting due to being so different from before. Thus, we will be paying close attention to the 4 weeks of Pre-Season and gather as much feedback from our Adventurers as possible, so we ask for your interest and participation.

 

We're also planning to reveal the new node of Kamasylvia for this coming Node War pre-season. We're putting the final touches on Kamasylvia Node War at the moment, and we look forward to sharing more information as it becomes available soon.

● Changed Node War to a "territorial expansion" method of warfare.
- Node Wars will now be held by territory depending on the day.
* e.g.) On Monday, all the nodes in Balenos will be part of Node War. While on Tuesday, all nodes in Serendia will be part of Node War.
- A guild will be able to participate on an initial node. Once they occupy the initial node, they can decide to expand their dominion to neighboring nodes.
* e.g.) Guild A occupied the node. Then they can decide to expand during the next Node War, by following "war game" rules.

Here are additional examples to explain:
Guild A that occupied the Northern Plain of Serendia node and Guild B that occupied the Alejandro Farm node build forts in the Costa Farm node to invade. Then both Guild A and Guild B can damage the fort and annexes of Guild C that is currently occupying the Costa Farm node.
However, Guild C that is occupying Costa Farm cannot invade and damage the forts and annexes in the Northern Plain of Serendia node nor the Alejandro Farm node if they have no forts currently built in those nodes.
(However, Guild C can decide to build a fort in the Northern Plain of Serendia node to invade and damage the fort and annexes of Guild A.)
Therefore, strategic calls between attack and defense are now even more important than before.
● Changed all relevant territories of a Node War server into PvP zones.
- Additionally, non-participants of the Node War can still be attacked by participants. However, this rule does not apply to safe zones, which is the same as before.
● Occupying guilds that defend their forts in their occupied nodes for the duration of the two-hour Node War will win.
- A guild can occupy up to 10 nodes in a territory.
* Guilds can only expand one node at a time, regardless of whether or not they already occupy a node.
● The previous concept of "tiers" are maintained. Like before, guilds that occupy a Tier 1 to 4 node can participate in the Conquest War of that territory.
- A guild that occupies a node in a territory cannot participate in Node War of another territory.
- If you die and resurrect during Node War, then you will be resurrected at the fort that is closest to the node you died in.
● Changed to make it so War Heroes cannot be hired for Node Wars.
 
● Add the "Main Node" function for guilds occupying nodes.
- Occupied nodes are decided at the end of Node War.
- Guilds that have 2 or more nodes can designate a Main Node.
- For guilds that have 2 or more nodes but do not designate a Main Node, their fort in the newest occupied node will be designated automatically as their Main Node.
If a guild that got to occupy their first node decides to expand and take another node, but fails to defend their first node, then they will lose all their nodes.
- The Main Node can be designated freely by the Guild Master and Guild Officers outside of the Node War period. It cannot be changed during Node War.
- Added a new function where the location of where the guild skill "Assemble!" will summon guild members to can be chosen if a guild has 2 or more forts installed. The person using the skill can see a list of forts for the skill to summon members to.
- For guilds that only occupy 1 node, the guild skill "Assemble!" will work the same way as before. It will summon members to their fort.
- When the Main Node is destroyed, all the forts built by that guild in all their nodes will also be destroyed and liberates them.
- For guilds that occupy 3 nodes or more, if the nodes get disconnected from the Main Node, they will lose the disconnected nodes which will then be liberated.

 

● Added a max Limit to the number of annexes that can be built in a node during Node War.
- Like before, guilds will have a max limit on how many annexes they can build in each node. Occupying guilds can only build up to 6 Cannon Observatories in the node they occupy.
- You can summon siege weapons in a node and bring it to a different node to fight.
* e.g.) Guild A is fighting in the nodes Quint Hill, Abandoned Land, and Calpheon Castle Site. Then they can summon an elephant in the Quint Hill node and bring it to the Calpheon Castle Site node to fight.

 

● Changed the appearance of the Node War Information on the World Map.
- The current node occupation information will be shown with changed icons and node colors.
- A random color will be assigned for each guild that occupies a node. When a guild expands and occupies a neighboring node, the nodes will be filled with the same color.
- The node will be highlighted when selected and show where you can build forts in that node.
- The borderlines between different territories and nodes occupied by different guilds will be marked with a thick yellow line.
- The borderlines between each node will be marked with a dark grey line.
- Changed the Node War Information on the World Map (M) window to no longer display the Tax Grade for Tier 1 Advanced nodes.

▲ Go to the World Map (M) > Node War Information tab to see the node relavent information map shown above.

 

- You can use a filter to see the nodes that your guild currently occupies, nodes by their tiers, and nodes by the Node War day.

 

- The entire territory that has a Node War that day will slowly blink when you go to the World Map > Node War Information tab.

 

● Added the UI where you can see the guild's fort condition during the Node War.
- You will be able to see the condition of the forts during Node War and click on the flag icon to auto-navigate to that location.
- Forts that were attacked with be displayed in red on the UI.

< Before being hit >

< After getting hit >

● Changed Node Wars to be held on days designated for their territory.
- Each territory will have Node Wars 3 times every week.
- You can use a filter to see nodes by their tiers, days, and nodes occupied by your guild.

Mon Balenos Calpheon
Tue Serendia Mediah
Wed Calpheon Valencia
Thu Mediah Balenos
Fri Valencia Serendia

● Changed the amount of taxes received for each of the node tiers to the following:
Additionally, the accumulated taxes in all the nodes and territories were increased by 49%.

- Therefore, taxes will accumulate according to the changed rates for each of the nodes after maintenance.

Tax % by Tier
Before Taxes After Taxes
Tier 1 Beginner 4% Tier 1 Beginner 9.60%
Tier 1 Intermediate 8% Tier 1 Intermediate 14.40%
Tier 1 Advanced 12% Tier 1 Advanced Removed Tier 1 Advanced
Tier 2 20% Tier 2 20%
Tier 3 24% Tier 3 24%
Tier 4 32% Tier 4 32%
Before After
Obtain immediately after Node War After Node War until 15 min before the next time Node War begins in that territory (Able to collect the taxes accumulated during the period that the node was occupied) (Modified)

* e.g.) Let's say your guild won Node War on Wednesday in the "Ibellab Oasis" node in Valencia. Then your guild will automatically collect taxes that were accumulated during the period your guild occupied the node on Friday (the next day on which Node War is held in Valencia). Once 15 min before Node War begins, and another time 5 min before Node War begins (meaning taxes are collected a total of 2 times). (Removed)
* No changes were made to Conquest War. The method of collecting taxes and the same as before, immediately after occupying the territory.

 

● Changed Resplendent Medals of Honor to now be issued once based on the highest tier of node conquered by your guild and the result of the Node War (victory/liberation/loss).

e.g.) If a guild loses their Main Node and has all their forts destroyed, they will get Resplendent Medal of Honor x1.
When a guild with a Tier 2 node occupies a Tier 4 node, then they will get Resplendent Medal of Honor x24, which is the reward for occupying a Tier 4 node.
Another example, if a guild attempted to occupy 3 different Tier 3 nodes but all the nodes were liberated, then the guild members will get Resplendent Medal of Honor x8.

- The number of Resplendent Medal of Honor given to guilds are still the same as before. The following number of medals will be given depending on the results of the Node Wars and the tier of the nodes:

  Victory Liberate Loss Extra
Tier 1 12 4 1 5
Tier 2 16 6 1 5
Tier 3 20 8 1 5
Tier 4 24 10 1 5
 
● Added a Node War Shop that can be used by guilds that win Node Wars.
- You can use this Shop when the Node War for your guild ends until 5 min before the next day Node War begins via NPCs in Calpheon, Mediah, Valencia, Kamasylvia, Drieghan, and O'dyllita. (Modified)
- The Node War Shop for winning guilds of Node Wars can be used by all guild members except apprentice guild members.
- You can start using the Shop from the point when all the Node Wars of your guild have ended.
- When your guild wins the Node War, you can use a Node War Shop of the highest tier of Node your guild owns. The items you can purchase at a Node War Shop differs depending on the highest Tier Node owned by your guild.
- All of the items in the Node War Shop will be reset on a regular basis.
* However, the items in the shop will consist of meaningful loot for our Adventurers since they are hard-earned result of victory.

Conquest War, Node War

 The third Conquest War Pre-Season will begin on Oct 23 (Sat) after this update.


Prior to starting the third Conquest War Pre-Season, we adjusted the structure to reduce “issues where the incorrect AP/DP Limit would be applied” sometimes in certain territories and areas. We would like to express our apologies for the inconveniences faced by Adventurers who have been actively participating in Node/Conquest Wars during the Conquest War Pre-Season due to this issue. In return, we will make our best efforts in coming up with more enjoyable content for Node/Conquest Wars.

 

As the third Conquest War Pre-Season begins, the stat Limits for Accuracy and Damage Reduction will be adjusted in the Mediah and Valencia Conquest Wars. As mentioned in the developers’ commentary last time, we increased the stat Limits to match the progression of our Adventurers.

 

We would like to express our gratitude to those of you who continue showing interest and love for our Conquest War content during the Conquest War Pre-Season. We will also work hard to continue providing high-quality content for Conquest Wars. Thank you.

● Changed the stat Limits of Mediah, Valencia Conquest Wars.
