New and Improvements

Item

Naru gear was really helpful for leveling from the Serendia questline to the Mediah questline and was also a sort of a tutorial gear that helped with understanding all levels of enhancement in Black Desert. The gear was designed to help you progress through Mediah with little difficulty, but Adventurers not yet used to the skill commands felt a much steeper difficulty spike than others. Due to this, we improved the stats of the Naru gear to allow for a safer adventuring experience. We will continue to provide quality-of-life updates for our new Adventurers.
● Added a feature to easily exchange the PEN (V) Naru gear (excluding accessories) obtained by a season character for PRI (I) Tuvala gear through the relevant UI.
- The button for converting to PEN (V) Naru gear will appear in the upper left of the Equipment UI when your season character has a piece of PEN (V) Naru gear equipped or in their Inventory.
- Use the Convert UI to convert your PEN (V) Naru gear into PRI (I) Tuvala gear.
- Changed the Season Pass objectives for converting to PRI (I) Tuvala gear, due to the addition of this feature.

 

● Added effects to each parts of the Naru gear that improves depending on their enhancement levels, PRI (I), DUO (II), TRI (III), TET (IV), and PEN (V).

Parts Effects PRI (I) DUO (II) TRI (III) TET (IV) PEN (V)
Main Weapon Extra AP Against Monsters 6 8 10 12 14
Sub-weapon Extra AP Against Monsters 6 9 12 15 18
Greatbow Extra AP Against Monsters 2 3 4 5 6
Each Parts of Defense Gear Monster Damage Reduction 1 2 3 4 5
Max HP + 10 20 30 40 50

● Changed the description for "Monster Damage Reduction Up," an extra effect gained by enhancing gear.
