Major Updates - Elvia realm

● Hadum, the goddess of despair who felled many lives in the western region and caused the great civil strife between Sylvia's children, has come into this world yet again. She seeks Kamasylvia's Light, rekindled by countless adventurers. Hadum has set loose her black sun, glowing with hatred and destruction, upon the skies of Serendia, a world that is beginning to look like Hadum's Elvia Realm. Serendia is the first to fall prey to Hadum, and many of its inhabitants have lost themselves to rage under her dark influence.

* Some of the servers in Black Desert have fallen under Hadum's influence. You can now face monsters tainted by Hadum in certain servers.

Biraghi Den
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 260
Recommended DP: 310
Narc "Alert Levels" should be carefully heeded while venturing into Biraghi Den.
Bandits will put a bounty out for and raise alert levels against adventurers defeating monsters.
From this point on, adventurers will have to face additional waves of attacks from bandits.
There are five different stages of alert levels. You'll face more enemies and diverse kinds of monsters as the alert level rises.
At stage 5, Biraghi himself will appear as a boss.
Defeating him will reset all alert levels.
If there is more than one adventurer in the same region,
the adventurer with the highest alert level will be highlighted on the map.

 

 

Imp Altar (Party of 2)
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 260
Recommended DP: 310
Okiara A party of two is needed for this quest. One must take up a position while the other lures monsters to said position.
Once you bring the elite monster near the Altar Imp Flag and defeat it,
this power will transform nearby souls into Altar Imps and provide you with more loot.
There is a certain chance that Dastard Bheg will be summoned
while you are defeating elite monsters near the Altar Imp Flag.

 

 

Fogan Swamp
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 270
Recommended DP: 320
Okiara Titium will appear as a boss during the battle
and Nagas, known rivals of Fogans, may appear from time to time to make things more difficult for adventurers.

 

 

Naga Swamp
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 270
Recommended DP: 320
Narc Once attacked, the Swamp Naga Commander will summon its minions to strike the adventurer.
Additionally, there are Poisonous Swamp Plants in the swamps that can be defeated to lower the defenses of nearby monsters.
These plants can inflict poison damage, so adventurers must carefully form a strategy on how to use them in battle.
Fogans may also threaten adventurers.

 

 

Castle Ruins (Party of 3)
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 270
Recommended DP: 320
Valtarra You can obtain "Al Rhundi Secret Order" by defeating monsters.
This item can be used at the Castle Ruins entrance to summon 15 elite monsters.
The goal here is to defeat 5 of them as fast as possible to summon Al Rhundi.

 

 

Orc Camp
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 280
Recommended DP: 340
Valtarra Red Orcs have become more powerful and normal attacks do not inflict heavy damage on them anymore.
To counter this, you have to make use of the Fairies of Light. Fairies of Light are imprisoned inside a cage.
But if you break them free, they'll return the favor by creating a "Zone of Light".
Red Orcs exposed to the "Zone of Light" will weaken in strength.
Activating more than 5 "Zone of Light" will trigger an enormous "Light Burst" that will immensely weaken the Red Orcs that are inside it.
You must focus on setting up these zones in a manner that best fits your strategy.
However, Red Orc Wizards are not affected by the "Zone of Light" and "Light Burst". They can also destroy the "Zone of Light" and amplify the strength of Red Orcs and so should be taken out as quickly as possible.
Effects from "Zone of Light" and "Light Burst" do not overlap.

 

 

Bloody Monastery
Recommended AP/DP Attribute Monster Zone Info.
Recommended AP: 280
Recommended DP: 340
Narc During combat, you have a certain chance to obtain a "Crimson Bell".
Ringing the "Crimson Bell" will summon monsters from all directions.
Rituals may also be in progress in the monastery from time to time.
"If you succeed in stopping this ritual, a Furious Muskan will appear to challenge you.
Defeating the Furious Muskan will drop loot for a group of max 5 adventurers."

 

 

● The power of three ancient spirits has been discovered in Elvia realm.

You'll be obtaining "Ancient Spirit's Weapons (Main Weapon/Awakening Weapon)" as you defeat monsters in Elvia realm. These weapons are not very powerful against normal monsters or in PvP, but they are extremely effective against monsters in Elvia realm. You'll be given a limited time to use these weapons, so you must be quick in making the most of them. We hope you will enjoy the new features that set Elvia realm apart from other hunting grounds. The Ancient Spirit's Weapons were created so that adventurers could approach Elvia realm in a completely different way. In ancient lore, heroes are confronted with trials, which they overcome to obtain legendary swords. They then used the swords to defeat the great evil lurking in their world. You, too, will feel like one of those ancient heroes as you reign victorious on the battlefield.
- The three ancient spirits are Valtarra, Okiara, and Narc. They are attendants to Sylvia, the former ruler of Elvia realm. They disappeared as Sylvia was ousted from Elvia, but have begun to resurface in response to the energy of the adventurers who have jumped into the battlefield to stop the infestation of Hadum.
- While defeating monsters in Hadum's territory, young Valtarra, young Okiara, and young Narc will occasionally appear in the field in which adventurers will receive the lightning, fire, and water affinities. As you interact with these ancient spirits, you can choose and receive an Elvia Main Weapon or Elvia Awakening Weapon. These weapons can be used immediately upon receiving.
- Elvia Main Weapons and Awakening Weapons have excellent basic AP and are especially effective against Hadum-infested monsters.
- Elvia Main Weapons and Awakening Weapons will disappear 10 minutes after you get them. So, they can only be used within that allotted time. The weapons have a max durability of 100 and cannot be repaired.
- Elvia Main Weapons and Awakening Weapons cannot be used for Item Copy, Enhancement, Devouring, and Fairy Growth. Caphras Stones cannot be used on them as well. Only normal characters can use these weapons.
- Elvia's effects do not apply if the character's Karma is below 0.
- Elvia Main Weapons and Awakening Weapons cannot be sold on the Central Market nor to NPC Shops.
- Each Elvia Main Weapon and Awakening Weapon has its own distinct attribute, which may wield more power in certain situations.
 
▲ 3 Elvia Main Weapon Types
 
▲ 3 Elvia Awakening Weapon Types
 
 
● Every character has been given a special Elvia Skill, exclusive to their class. These Elvia skills can only be used while equipping an Elvia Awakening Weapon.
 
▲ Elvia Skills for Warrior, Ranger, and Soceress
 
▲ Elvia Skills for Berserker, Tamer, and Musa
 
▲ Elvia Skills for Maehwa, Valkyrie, and Kunoichi
 
▲ Elvia Skills for Ninja, Wizard, and Witch
 
▲ Elvia Skills for Dark Knight, Striker, and Mystic
 
▲ Elvia Skills for Lahn, Archer, and Shai

● Added a new questline about the stories of Hadum's realm, Elvia.
- Reach Lv. 61 or above to accept the quest "[Elvia] Obsidian Ashes" from Black Spirit to start the [Elvia] questline. You must activate Quest Preference - "Combat" before talking with Black Spirit to accept the quest.
- This quest can be received only once per family. Some of the quests in the questline may only be completed in Elvia servers.
- You can obtain large quantities of materials for crafting Obsidian Specter's Energy while progressing in this questline.

● Added reform formulas for Blackstar defense gear.
- Each Blackstar defense gear (Helmet, Armor, Gloves) can be reformed once to unlock its potential.
- You will need a very rare and special material called the "Obsidian Specter's Energy" to reform Blackstar defense gear.
- You can obtain the main material required to craft Obsidian Specter's Energy at hunting grounds corrupted by Hadum. This material can be combined with other rare materials to produce Obsidian Specter's Energy. This is a very special kind of material that requires a large deal of skill to harness and cannot be traded on the Central Market.
- Reforms will not fail and can be used at any given enhancement level. Any crystals, item brands, and the item's durability will be maintained when reformed.
