GM Notes Apr 21, 2022, 10:00 (UTC) BDO Monthly - April 2022


Greetings Adventurers,


BDO Monthly April Issue has just arrived! Grab a copy while it lasts!


This month our adventurers have shared with the community their coolest characters drawings and screenshots, a speed paint video and guides that will help you complete the most difficult challenges in Sycrakea! Are you ready? Let's start reading the magazine!


Magazine Cover



Adventurer Freya commissioned artist Mato A.I to draw her awesome Witch in combat. We can see Freya’s Witch casting her electrifying spells while blending with the sands of the desert. We loved the color scheme and concept used for the drawing!

Adventurer Luwucifer created this drawing for a friend that wanted to see their Dark Knight covered in corruption from the Blackstar weapon. We know Blackstar is a powerful weapon, but do not let the weapon take control of you! Don’t you remember what happened with Calpheon citizens that fell under the influence of the Blackstar? We do not want that to be repeated!


▶ Corruption Tastes Beautiful - Luwucifer

Adventurer Cirtap13 drew a Valkyrie wearing the Enslar outfit while resting next to a lake. Our characters are used to fighting most of the time, but it’s important to have moments of tranquility to admire the beauty of the landscape. Cirtap13 perfectly portrayed the beauty of Black Desert in a different way and in a different art style. We loved the details of the outfit and how mysterious this Valkyrie looks!

Adventurer CookyLay is a veteran who has been playing Black Desert for the past six years. March 3rd marked the anniversary of Black Desert and CookyLay wanted to share their favorite screenshots from these past years. We look forward to seeing more screenshots for many years to come!


▶ Happy Birthday BDO - CookyLay

Adventurer Reverielle travelled to Velia on a spring afternoon to take some amazing screenshots when the sun was setting. The lighting for these screenshots was perfect and also the outfit that was chosen matches the cherry blossom trees in the background.

Adventurer Mirmulnir did a photoshoot of their Valkyrie in Star’s End after fighting with hordes of Apostoles of Corruption. We really liked the colors used for the Enslar outfit as it matches the vibe and mood of Star’s End. We hope Mirmulnir was lucky and got lots of Distortion’s Earrings!


▶ Valkyrie in Star's End - Mirmulnir



Adventurer Mercuel appears one more time in our magazine, but this time they are showing us their art skills in a speed painting video of a Warrior in the middle of a siege. Being able to see the whole process of the drawing showed us how dedicated Mercuel is to details when creating their Black Desert art. Your art is truly a pleasure to look at, and we look forward to seeing many more from you!


▶ Speed Paint Defense Duty - Mercuel



Adventurer Tayah made a video guide for Succession Tamer, where new and veteran players will be able to rediscover their class and learn new tricks and combos for both PvE and PvP. We hope you can learn something from Tayah’s guide!

Adventurer OverFarming shared with the community a handy guide in Spanish explaining how to complete the puzzles of Sycrakea (Even those that are secret). If some puzzles in this dungeon are extremely difficult for you to complete, and you need some help to continue, then check out this guide!


▶ Guía de Sycrakea: Todos los puzzles (Spanish)

Adventurer Elid shared with the community a guide in Spanish explaining the function of Artifacts and Light Stones. Is it your first time getting familiar with these items? Do not worry! Elid perfectly summarized all essential points, so now it’s your turn to take your gear to the next level!


▶ Guía de Artefactos y Piedras de Luz (Spanish)
