"Watch [CM] Endlaive summarize the entire GM Note in 60 seconds!"


"Let me change server quicker!"


You can change servers without going through the hassle of going through the disconnect menu.

Click the server name on top of the minimap, which will open up the server list for you.


"Can’t I just learn every level of a skill at once?"

[Shift] + [LMB/RMB]
With a click

You can learn the maximum level of a skill immediately (or unlearn, if you heart so desires). 



"I want a bigger minimap."


Just click and drag the corner of the mini map to make it bigger!

Really helpful for those long distance trips.



"I want to enjoy the game in the ratio I want"

Control the screen ratio with the Crop Mode function!

▲ ESC(Menu)- Settings - Display Settings - Camera Graphics - Crop Mode Enabled

This allows you to freely adjust the height and width of the screen.



▲ Before Crop Mode

▲ After Crop Mode


"I want a way to save the places I go often."

Open the World Map, right click the location, and press Save Location.
This adds it to your favorite places, and can be easily navigated to in the future.


"I want to register menus to hot keys!"

If the icon/button has a little arrow in the corner, hold alt and click it.
This will open up the short cut menu instantly.

"I want to find an NPC!"

Click the magnifying glass icon to the right of the minimap.
Searching for an NPC name will guide you to it’s location (however you must have knowledge of the character).

In addition to searching for NPCs, you’ll also be able to quickly be directed to the nearest warehouse, stable, and multiple other functions needed in Black Desert. 

Check out the Adventurers’s Guide for more information.
