Updates Mar 23, 2022, 09:00 (UTC) Patch Notes - March 23, 2022


Greetings Adventurers,

Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on March 23, 2022 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 70 updates and is approximately 1.07 GB.


● Events will begin after CalpheON Episode 2. Check out the time schedule [here].

New and Improvements


Tachros, the Skill Instructor of Velia, has come to the Battle Arena so you can more conveniently change skill add-ons and skill presets. You can now meet "Battle Arena Skill Instructor" Tachros in the Battle Arena anywhere to learn skills, as well as change skill add-ons and skill presets. We had our concerns about the Battle Arena becoming bigger and bigger to replace the roles that villages play. We thought it'd be more meaningful to draw out the most usability since skills are factors that directly affect combat. This decision was made based on the feedback we received from many of our Adventurers across multiple regions. It might seem a bit late, but we hope this update is still meaningful.

● "Battle Arena Skill Instructor" Tachros has come to the Battle Arena.
- You can learn skills and change skill add-ons by going to "Battle Arena Skill Instructor" Tachros.
- "Battle Arena Skill Instructor" Tachros can be found immediately upon entering the Battle Arena.
* You can enter or leave the Battle Arena from anywhere by going to Menu (ESC) -> War (F7) -> Battle Arena. Leaving will take you to the previous location from where you entered.

● Changed trial characters to be unable to activate Forced PvP mode (ALT+C).
● Fixed the issue where you couldn't see the appearances of other Adventurers located in monster zones sometimes.

● Chaos: Red Moon (I to III), Absolute - Made the following change to the description on the DP increase effect to match the actual effect:
- Previous: All DP +20 for 10 sec when using the skill
- Changed to: All DP +20 for 20 sec when using skill

● Yippee! - Changed to be available for Quick Slot.


Quests to help Adventurers learn the fundamentals of Farming have been added. You can obtain one Fence that doesn't require Contribution points upon completing the questline. We hope this will make it appealing to Adventurers who already enjoy Farming. As long as you have Contribution points to rent a "Small Fence," you can do so without having to remove any fences you already have installed.

● Added a questline from which you can learn about Farming and can obtain one Fence that does not require Contribution points.
- Added "Know Anything About Farming?" that can be accepted from the NPC "Valentine's Apprentice" Liana with a Lv. 20 or higher character.
- You can obtain "Finto's Strong Fence" as the reward upon completing all the consecutive quests in the questline.
* Finto's Strong Fence has the same effect as a regular "Strong Fence," which means you can install up to 10. (Installable number of grids: 10)
● Added a new quest that allows you to exchange "Martina Finto's Strong Fence" for "Klau's Old Moon Fence."
- Added "New Fence, Worn Fence" that you can accept from "Old Moon Guild Manager" Klau in Velia with a Farming Master 1 or higher character (once per Family).
Hand over three "Mysterious Seeds," needed for research on seeds, two Gold Bar 100G, and one "Martina Finto's Strong Fence," to get one Klau's Old Moon Fence as a reward.
* "Klau's Old Moon Fence" has the same effect as an "Old Moon Fence," which means you can install up to 10. (Installable number of grids: 10)
● Increased the number of the following "Wild" monsters for Hunting by about 20%.
- Calpheon: Giant Boar, Giant Elk, Giant Wolf

We increased the number of [Fragment of Despair] Gyfin Rhasia Decimators that are summoned so that you can defeat more of them.

You can now anticipate a little more loot when you defeat [Fragment of Despair] Gyfin Rhasia Decimators in a normal way.
