Updates [Updates] Patch Notes - December 1, 2021
Black Desert Nov 30, 2021, 00:00 (UTC)

 

Greetings Adventurers,


Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on December 1, 2021 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 49 updates and is approximately 1.00 GB.

 


Yar!

"Yar!" was added. Yar! is a new type of minigame that you can play with others with cards that have images of NPCs you can meet throughout the world of Black Desert. It is a simple game that was inspired by the classic games of poker and yacht.

 

It's easy to understand the rules after playing it a couple of times. The basics revolve around drawing cards a set number of times each turn in order to assemble the best hand of 5 cards to score the maximum number of points possible. You go back and forth with your opponent, committing hands to accumulate points each turn. Strategic planning and a bit of luck are both important factors in winning a game against another Adventurer in Yar!, so embrace the tides of fortune while trying to outwit your opponent.

 

We hope you'll enjoy playing Yar! with other Adventurers traveling across distant lands, as well as playing against NPCs in the Black Desert world.

● A new game is gaining popularity among the villagers of the Black Desert world. The game, "Yar!", was introduced to the villagers by a Shai girl named Yar who suddenly appeared in Velia one day.
- The "Yar!" deck consists of cards with symbols of a sun, moon, star, and flower as well as numbers 1(A) to 6.
 
- Go to ESC (New) Menu > Community (F9) > Yar! to start the game.
- Select the game mode which will determine the types of hands in play and enter the Family Name of your opponent to send an invite.
 
- When your opponent accepts your invite, the "Yar!" minigame begins!

[Yar! in a Nutshell]

"Yar!" is a minigame where you draw cards and score points based on the matching hands.

 

1. Select "Draw!" on your turn to draw cards up to a set number of times.
- Here, you can select the cards you wish to keep then re-draw the rest.

 

2. The points each hand will earn you are listed on the left side of the Yar! window.
- Select the hand you want to commit and earn the pertaining points.

 

3. Take turns with your opponent until you have committed points to all the hands.
The Adventurer with the most points wins!

- The possible hands you can score points for are listed below. When you play the game, you can score each hand only once.

Contents

● Changed the method by which you can exchange gold bars with NPCs for 120-min buffs.
- You can exchange gold bars for buffs with the following NPCs in each city:

City NPC
Velia Ottavio Ferre
Heidel Arsen
Calpheon Leona
Altinova Zigmund
Valencia City Nerasabi Alom
Grána Merindora
Duvencrune Altar
O'draxxia Qindir

- Changed the items required to exchange for buffs to the following:

Before After
Gold Bar 1G x5 Gold Bar 10G x3

- Changed the effects of the 120-min buffs you can get by exchanging Gold Bar 10G x3 with the NPCs mentioned above to the following:

Buff Types Previous Buffs Changed Buffs
Attack 1 of All AP +3/5/8
1 of All Accuracy +3/5/8
All AP +8
All Accuracy +8
Protection 1 of All Damage Reduction +3/5/8
1 of Max HP +50/100/150 
All Damage Reduction +8
Max HP +150
Experience 1 of Combat EXP +5/10/15%
1 of Skill EXP +5/10/15%
Combat EXP +15% 
Skill EXP+15%
The "gold bar buff" used by many Adventurers was somewhat inconvenient since you would have to keep exchanging gold bars until you obtained the buffs with the highest stats. Now, you can get the best possible buffs by just handing over a fixed amount of gold bars.
● Changed to be able to connect nodes in Narvo Island and Lisz Island. 

 


Monster

● Improved the Agris Fever points consumed when defeating monsters in the following regions to be more efficient.

Region Monsters Points Consumed Before Points Consumed After
Aakman Temple All monsters 40 20
(200% more efficient)
Hystria Ruins All monsters 30 20
(166% more efficient)
Kratuga Ancient Ruins Bamole
Belloten
Elqueesh
Puruko
Kimel
Bamole
Belloten
Kimel
30 15
(200% more efficient)
Belloten
Elqueesh
250 125
(200% more efficient)
Laytenn 500 250
(200% more efficient)
After the update on the improved loot in the Valencia territory, many of you have been going to monster zones in Valencia, such as the Pila Ku Jail and Roud Sulfur Mine. Following this update, we improved the efficiency of Agris Fever to make the Aakman Temple and Hystria Ruins more appealing.
● Increased the drop rate of Caphras Stones from monsters in Olun's Valley.
Monster Chance at Looting Caphras Stones
Boulder Golem
Rock Golem
Indomitable Golem
Approx. +150%
Olun's Golem Approx. +115%
Golem's Left Arm Approx. +210%
Although Olun's Valley was a monster zone designed to be the main monster zone for Caphras Stones, it became too similar to other zones as Caphras Stones were also added to other zones. Because of this, we increased the Caphras Stone drop rate in Olun's Valley to attract more Adventurers.
● Increased the Black Magic Crystal item drop rate in the following monster zones. Changed Black Magic Crystals to also drop from monsters that didn't drop them previously. Thus, the drop rates in the following monsters zones have been adjusted accordingly.
Monster Zones Increased Chance
Gahaz Bandit's Lair Approx. +750%
Waragon Nest Approx. +180%
Bashim Base Approx. +600%
Aakman Temple Approx. +240%
Roud Sulfur Mine Approx. +15,000%
Crescent Shrine Approx. +1,500%
Cadry Ruins Approx. +750%
Pila Ku Jail Approx. +1,000%
Hystria Ruins Approx. +120%
● Added Black Magic Crystal items to drop in the following monster zones.
- Added information regarding Black Magic Crystal dropping in the following monster zones to the Item Drop Information UI.
Monster Zones
Desert Naga Temple
Titium Valley
Kratuga Ancient Ruins
We increased the drop rates of "Black Magic Crystals," items required for both the guaranteed PEN (V) accessories and PEN (V) boss gear questlines, from level-appropriate mid-tier monster zones throughout the Valencia territory. We hope that this update will help many more Adventurers to progress through these questlines in order to obtain the upgrades they need. (The drop rate for Black Magic Crystals from Roud Sulfur Mine were comparatively much lower than other monster zones, so we increased their drop rate by 15,000% to match that of other zones.)

 


Conquest War, Node War

● Increased the max number of guild alliance members from 100 to 150.
- However, up to 100 members can participate in a Node/Conquest War.
- The maximum number of guilds that can join an alliance when an alliance is formed remains at 10. Guilds already occupying a node or territory cannot join an alliance.
- Also, guilds cannot join an alliance when a Node/Conquest War is in progress.
- As before, guild alliance leaders cannot allocate fewer people than their current number of guild members.
* Guilds who have accepted the Guild Alliance invite cannot accept more guild members than allowed by the alliance.
● Fixed the issue where Adventurers on Flame Towers, Enhanced Flame Towers, and Hwachas received damage from enemy attacks during Node/Conquest Wars. 

 


UI

● Changed the item drop information of the "Gatekeeper" monsters of the following monster zones to not be displayed on the Item Drop Information UI.

● Fixed the issue where monsters at the Altar Imp Habitat in the Elvia Realm would sometimes appear inside of objects on the ground.

● Changed to check the box for "J's Hammer of Loyalty" on the Enhancement UI when it gets selected.
● Fixed the issue where certain dyes would appear unnatural on certain parts of the [Tamer] Marnist Armor.
