Updates Jun 22, 2022, 10:00 (UTC) Patch Notes - June 22, 2022


Greetings Adventurers,

Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on June 22, 2022 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 103 updates and is approximately 1.40 GB.

Great Ocean Zones and Ship Upgrade Revamp

The revamps to Great Ocean monster zones and ship upgrade methods introduced in the GM note are now here.
First, we're improving the loot and drop rates in Great Ocean monster zones. We wanted to add more zones with unique traits for our Adventurers to choose from just as we did to the monster zones on land.
We also adjusted the difficulty of Saltwater Crocodile monster zones to be available for solo Adventurers, but will maintain loot dropping for up to two party members as before.
To make Great Ocean content more accessible to a greater number of Adventurers, we applied a revamp to the means of upgrading ships as well.
Certain zones will now drop Verdant Black Stones, certain region quests will reward a bunch of Sea Monster's Ooze, and new recipes for Adhesive for Upgrade have been added as well.
We will continue to look for making quality of life improvements so many more Adventurers will easily be able to access more Great Ocean content.
We'd like to thank all of our Adventurers who love sailing the high seas of Black Desert.

We are making adjustments to the Gyfin Rhasia Temple Underground loot drop rates.
The drop rates of items such as Forest Fury, Elkarr, and others was reduced. The drop rate of Caphras Stones was increased and we added the Destruction Spirit Stone to be dropped here.
These change were not made to lower the drop rates in Gyfin Rhasia Temple Underground. The main focus of these changes was to adjust the value of certain loot across all the monster zones.

● Made the following changes to the Gyfin Rhasia Temple Underground:
- Increased the drop rate of Caphras Stones by approximately 15%.
- Added "Destruction Spirit Stone" to drop in this monster zone.
- Added "Trace of Memory" to drop in this monster zone.

We originally made the ability to use certain skills while auto-running on a mount available to Adventurers with high enough mastery in Training. Considering how much more difficult it is to level Training compared to other Life Skills, we had initially set the bar to "at least Artisan 1," but found that not as many Adventurers were using this ability. With the hopes that many more Adventurers will enjoy this ability, we decided to lower the requirement to "at least Professional 1."
● Lowered the requirement to use the function which automatically used certain skills while auto-moving on mounts.
Mounts Automated Skills Requirements
Horses Sprint At least Training Artisan 1 → At least Training Professional 1
Camels Quick Steps At least Training Artisan 1 → At least Training Professional 1
Miniature Elephants Quick Run At least Training Artisan 1 → At least Training Professional 1
Forest Path Wagons Forest Rush At least Training Artisan 1 → At least Training Professional 1
Derome the Donkey
Cherose the Donkey
Vallet the Donkey
Run Run (Shais Only) At least Training Artisan 1 → At least Training Professional 1

Quest, Knowledge

We've added some side quests for world-building purposes.
We plan on adding more quests like these where you, the Adventurer, will be helping out random NPCs, both changing the in-game world for the better as you get a better understanding of said NPCs, thereby breathing new life into the immersive world of Black Desert.

● Added several new side quests in the world of Black Desert.
- A child with a beautiful voice is afraid to sing before others in the streets of Calpheon.
- A soldier stationed at Trina Fort is exhausted by the ongoing war.
- Cries for aid can be heard from the Falres Dirt Farm and Bain Farmland in Calpheon.
- A bounty hunter at the Dancing Marlin Tavern near Velia wharf has a strange tale to share.

- Benns Joanna of the Lamute Gang has a tale of a unique friendship on the isle of Papua Crinea.
● Added [Elvia] Darkness Upon the Saunil Battlefield to the Suggested questline of [Combat] The Tale of the Godr-Ayed Weapon.
* This quest rewards you with a substantial amount of Scorching Sun Shards (once per Family).
● Merindora, the Eldest Spirit in Grána, wishes to share the tale regarding the "Godr-Ayed weapon" to even more Adventurers. Now you can hear about the story behind the Godr-Ayed weapon even without a TET (IV) Blackstar weapon in possession.

* Before: TET (IV) Blackstar weapon in possession
