Let's Remember Port Ratt Together
Saying goodbye to the iconic port
February 28, 2023 (Tue) after maintenance - March 8, 2023 (Wed) before maintenance

It's nearly time to say goodbye to Port Ratt. On March 8, the iconic port will be making way for Nampo Harbor in preparation for the upcoming release of the Land of the Morning Light expansion later this year. So, to immortalize and honor Port Ratt, let's revisit the town and make sure it's never forgotten. And hey, there are prizes to win too! 

Why is Port Ratt changing? 

As mentioned at Calpheon Ball 2022, we reworked our concept for "Haso," which was originally intended to be the sole "eastern-themed" civilization in the world of Black Desert, to that of our current Land of the Morning Light. This rework led to the transformation of Port Ratt into Nampo Harbor. One of our goals behind this change was to make Nampo Harbor a more comfortable experience compared to the rather cramped one that was the existing Port Ratt, especially since it will be the starting place of your adventures in the region and the meeting place of fresh and familiar faces.  

 How to participate? 

Let's get creative! Put Port Ratt in the spotlight the best way you can. How would you remember the port in a screenshot to make sure it's never forgotten? Where did you have some of your best memories? 

Take screenshots in or of Port Ratt in the best way you can think of and upload them to the in-game gallery with the title [Port Ratt Memories] (Required)

Post your screenshot in our official Discord server in the channel [#port-ratt-memories] to get a special, temporary, colored Discord role until Land of the Morning Light releases (Optional)

Submit your creation
