Not sure what a Season Server is? Don’t worry, because this GM Note has got you covered with everything you need to know!


Season Servers?

“Season Servers” are special progression-focused servers that are available for even novice Adventurers, which can allow them to quickly adapt to the Black Desert world.

Although you can only access and play on season servers with a season character, season characters can also access the normal servers and later “graduate” from the season servers to be converted into normal characters.
 
How Do I Create a Season Character?
 
First, you must have at least one empty character slot to be able to create a season character.
 
▲ Select a season server and create a season character!
 
You can only have one season character within your in-game Family at a time. If you want to create a new season character, you’ll need to either delete your existing season character or use Fughar’s Timepiece.
 
 
▲ Season characters have a small yellow season indicator at the top-left of their character slot.
 

Season Server & Character Perks

Now to really dive into the crux of the Black Desert’s Season Servers & Character – their perks!

 

1. Season Character Level Up Rewards

By reaching certain level milestones on your Season Character, you can receive level-up rewards from the Challenge (Y) menu. The rewards for each season may slightly differ, so make sure to check out the event page to learn more about them.

 

2. EXP Buffs

As the season servers are focused on character progression, they offer 24/7 EXP buffs to allow faster progression. Just like the level up rewards, the EXP buffs may slightly differ for each season, so take a look at the event page for the exact details.

 

3. Season Pass

The Season Pass is only available in the Season Servers. It serves as a “guide” to what you should accomplish on the season servers and rewards you for doing so.

* The Season Pass Challenges and Rewards may differ from season to season.

 

 

As for the final Season/Black Spirit Pass reward, [Season] Crow Merchants Guild Contribution Certificate I/II, this item allows you to access a daily quest via Fughar for a variety of rewards.

Item Name Rewards

[Season] Crow Merchants Guild Contribution Certificate I

[Event] Item Collection Increase Scroll (60 min) x1

Advice of Valks (+20) x1

[Season] Great Pioneer's Chest x1

[Season] Crow Merchants Guild Contribution Certificate II

 

4. Tuvala Equipment

Season Servers offer a special set of equipment known as “Tuvala.” This equipment is intended to help novice Adventurers get their footing in the Black Desert world, so it has a higher rate of enhancement compared to normal equipment.

 

 

There are several ways to obtain Tuvala Equipment while playing on the season servers. For instance, After enhancing Naru Equipment to PEN (V), season characters can convert this gear in the Equipment UI for PRI (I) Tuvala Equipment.

 

Lastly, Tuvala Equipment can still be used after the season ends, and PEN (V) Tuvala Equipment can be used to obtain PEN (V) Boss Gear through a guaranteed upgrade questline.

 

5. Season Materials

In the Season Servers, you can obtain special materials that are used to obtain and enhance Tuvala Equipment, or can just be sold to NPC Vendors for Silver.

 

 

You can obtain these season exclusive materials from various sources, including the Season Pass Challenges, season server monster zones, weekly monster zone quest, and more.

- In the Quests > Recurring tab’s “[Season] Stronger Tuvala Gear” quest list, you can accept the weekly quests from each zone’s Node Manager.

6. Season Character Transfer System

What if you created your season character as Class A, but now want to play with Class B...?


Don’t worry! Because you can use “Fughar’s Timepiece” to transfer your season character’s season status and Combat/Skill EXP!

Item Name How to Obtain

Fughar’s Timepiece

Can be obtained once per Family upon completing the [Season] Fughar's Special Timepiece quest with a season character that is Lv. 25 or higher!

* Quests that are in progress or completed on Class A will not be transferred to Class B.

Additionally, the Class B character must be Lv. 25 or lower to allow the transfer. (The Class A character must on a normal server with all their gear unequipped.)

 

Once you’ve used Fughar’s Timepiece, you will receive three exchange coupons (Tuvala Main Weapon Exchange Coupon, Tuvala Sub-weapon Exchange Coupon, and Tuvala Awakening Exchange Coupon) in the transferred character’s inventory after you’ve gone to the Character Selection screen. You can use these coupons to change your Tuvala weapons to ones that are suitable for Class B.

 

Afterward, you can use your new season character to experience season-exclusive in-game content such as the Rift Echoes, Season Atoraxxion, Season Red Battlefield, and more. Make sure to check out the patch notes for more details!

 


Season Server Graduation Rewards

If you fulfill the requirements, you can “graduate” from the Season Servers and receive several special rewards to help you get ready for the normal servers. “Graduation” allows you to quickly convert your season character to a normal character. This system is only available after a certain of time has passed since the start of the season. And of course, once you graduate, you will no longer be able to revert your character into a season character.


In order to graduate, you must not have “Fughar’s Timepiece,” and you must have claimed all the rewards from the Season Pass.
* Graduation requirements are subject to change. Please refer to the upcoming patch notes for the exact details.

 

First Gift: Tuvala Equipment Conversion

Once you graduate, your character will no longer be a season character, meaning your character will no longer be able to equip Season Tuvala Equipment. That’s why you’ll need to use the Tuvala Conversion Stones, which you receive as a reward, to convert the Season Tuvala Equipment.

 

 

When you decide to use the Tuvala Conversion Stone, make sure to avoid converting the wrong Tuvala Equipment if you have multiple of the same type.

 

Second Gift: Special Season Gift

The NPC Fughar offers a special gift quest, which you can complete to obtain the “Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon” that allows you to select one of the special season rewards.

 

Note: You cannot claim a reward that you’ve claimed previously.
