Ninja
For the Awakening Ninja, we've tweaked the Seamless skill to exclude its Bound effect in PvP, enabling the Ninja to benefit from the melee AP boost during combos. Furthermore, we've ensured that the Shadow Slash is instantly performed after Sura Katana skills, offering the Ninja greater flexibility for surprise attacks or swift movements.
Main & Succession
Prime: Fatal Blow, Shadow Stomp
  • Changed to immediately activate Shadow Stomp after Prime: Fatal Blow.
 
Prime: Smokescreen
  • Reduced the cooldown: 12 sec → 10 sec.
 
Alert Stance

Witch
Awakening
Barrage of Lightning
  • Improved to allow combo into Flow: Magical Evasion, Elementalization during the casting of the skill.
  • Improved to combo smoothly into Flow: Magical Evasion after the skill.
 
Mystic
The Awakened Mystic was designed to favor battles where she consistently dealt damage while glancing off (or taking) blows. However, this meant that she had to give up on stacking offensive stats and moreso on gearing up defensively to survive combat. To address this issue, we removed the HP recovered per Hurricane Sweep moves to now be recovered through her major skills of Wave Orb, Rising Dragon, and Sea Burial, thus allowing the Mystic to consistently deal damage to recover her health. Also, just as consuming Martial Spirits and performing Wave Orb, Rising Dragon, and Sea Burial increased her damage, we felt reducing the Martial Spirit cost for certain skills would allow for more frequent usage of such skills in her combos.
Main & Succession
Flash Step → Elbow Edge
  • Fixed the issue where comboing the two skills would reduce your traveled distance.
 
Flash Step → Prime: Scissor Kick
  • Changed to now combo into the latter skill's attack 1.
 
Prime: Scissor Kick
  • Changed the Floating debuff to now be applied during attack 1.

Awakening
Wave Orb, Sea Burial
  • Improved to combo smoothly from Hurricane Kick.
 
Dragon's Pit
  • Improved to combo smoothly into other skills.
  • Reduced the cooldown: 25 sec → 20 sec.
  • Improved to be available via Quick Slot with your gauntlet.
 
Dragon's Rip
  • Changed to now instantly activate Wave Orb without charging when comboed.
 
Hurricane Sweep
  • No longer recovers HP per move when using the skill.
  • Added Recover 30 HP per hit effect.
    • Also affects the Black Spirit version.
 
Wave Orb
  • No longer recovers HP when fully charged.
  • Changed to apply the Sea Dragon effect without consuming Martial Spirits when fully charged.
  • Changed to recover 200 HP when using the skill.
    • Consuming Martial Spirits will recover 300 HP when using the skill.
      • This includes cases when instantly performing the skill.
  • Changed to now consume 2 Martial Spirits to apply the Sea Dragon effect upon gathering 2 Martial Spirits.
  • Changed so you can now only combo into Flash Ship after fully charging the skill.
 
Rising Dragon
  • Changed to now recover 200 HP when using the skill.
    • Consuming Martial Spirits will recover 300 HP when using the skill.
  • Changed to now consume 1 Martial Spirit to apply the Sea Dragon effect upon gathering 1 Martial Spirit.
 
Sea Burial
  • Changed to now consume 1 Martial Spirit to apply the Sea Dragon effect upon gathering 1 Martial Spirit.
    • Accordingly, removed the previous effect when there was only 1 Martial Spirit.
  • Changed to now recover 200 HP when using the skill.
    • Consuming Martial Spirits will recover 300 HP when using the skill.
 
Sage
The Succession Sage has demonstrated its strength in group battles in PvP, through high damage output, his disruptive nature, and stability provided by Rift Chain. As a class known for having casting actions for each skill and feeling rather slow overall, this we saw to compensate by allowing for maximum damage output at higher levels. However, we decided to increase the interval when the Sage disappears after using Rift Chain and the Super Armor buff obtained at the end of the skill, which will require Sages to be more strategic with the skill usage. Also, we adjusted the advantage of reduced cooldown time for the Reset skill obtained through the effect of Prime: Overdrive. No longer will using Kyve Mastery or Ator's Thorn grant the reduction, which bore no risk even if wasted in mid-air. Now you will gain the cooldown reduction when using main skills that are more risky to use in mid-air.
Main & Succession
Prime: Form Shift
  • Removed the Magic AP +4/8/12/16 effect upon use.
 
Prime: Overdrive
  • Changed Kyve Mastery and Ator's Thorn to no longer obtain Overdrive's effect.
  • Changed to apply Overdrive's effect twice when using the following skills.
    • Spatial Collapse
    • Flow: Finishing Touch
    • Ator's Energy
    • Void Gateway
    • Dimensional Compression
    • Gravity Rift
    • Atomagia
    • Prime: Rift Storm
    • Prime: Spear Bolt
* Overdrive's effect stacks up to 4 levels for Black Spirit skills.
 
Prime: Rift Chain
  • Changed the cooldown: 4 sec → 7 sec
 
  • Changed the damage of the following skills.

Corsair
We've changed Succession Corsair to now inflict debuffs on opponents more frequently by utilizing not only Prime: Whirling Slash but also Prime: Mareca: Sea Stroll. Additionally, we've eliminated the difficult-to-land attack while moving with Prime: Mareca: Sea Stroll, and changed the skill to deal faster damage while applying a debuff.
Main & Succession
Prime: Mareca: Sea Stroll
  • Reduced the cooldown: 20 sec → 12 sec. Changed the Skill Add-on tier: 3 → 2.
    • Changed to have no attacks while moving. Accordingly, the damage of the last attack has been adjusted.
      • However, the effect of No Guard Gauge recovery applies to the path that Corsair passes.
  • Added the Air Attack debuff.
 
Mareca: Sea Stroll
  • Fixed the issue where the description displayed commands and the Floating debuff that were different from the actual effects.
 
Flow: Dreamswirl
  • Changed the cooldown: 30 sec → 20 sec
  • Fixed the issue where the skill incorrectly displayed the Stun debuff icon.
 
Drakania
Awakened Drakania was able to swiftly approach and ambush enemies using the mobility gained from Flow: Markthanan's Wings and Flow: Wings of Destruction. Particularly, Flow: Wings of Destruction allowed for starting flight from a distance and moving, then suddenly disappearing and reappearing with Core: Tectonic Slam or Core: Storm Maul to apply debuffs. This made it difficult for opponents to respond. To address this, changes have been made to allow combos only after the landing motion, giving opponents somewhat of a fighting chance to respond to Awakened Drakania's mobility. Also, we've adjusted Markthanan's Heart's HP recovery effects to prevent Drakania from suddenly recovering too much HP during combos. Instead, a certain level of HP can be maintained continuously when dealing damage outside of combos.
Awakening
Flow: Dragon Flight
  • Changed the skill to be unable to combo into Hexeblood: Tectonic Slam, Hexeblood: Storm Maul, Hexeblood: Tip of the Scale, and Dragonblood: Tip of the Scale while flying.
    • Accordingly, changed so that you can land when pressing E, RMB, or LMB during flight.
  • Changed the skill to combo into Hexeblood: Tectonic Slam or Hexeblood: Storm Maul after the character has fully landed.
  • Improved to smoothly combo with Hexeblood: Tip of the Scale, Dragonblood: Tip of the Scale after landing.
  • Improved to smoothly combo into Hexeblood: Tectonic Slam, Hexeblood: Storm Maul, Hexeb lood: Tip of the Scale, or Dragonblood: Tip of the Scale after landing while evading laterally.
 
Hexeblood: Tip of the Scale
  • Changed to consume 150 stamina when attack 3 is activated while moving. Accordingly, stamina does not recover.
  • Changed the attack 3 of Refraction, Flow: Markthanan's Wings, and Flow: Dragon Flight to move further when comboed.
 
Dragonblood: Tip of the Scale
  • Changed to consume 150 stamina when activated while moving. Accordingly, stamina does not recover.
 
Markthanan's Heart
  • Changed the HP recovery effect of Hexeblood: Extinction and Dragonblood: Savage Decree: 5% of Max HP 2 times → 4 times (up to 50% of Max HP)
  • Changed the HP recovery effect of Doombringer: 5% of Max HP 6 times → 4 times (up to 50% of Max HP)
  • Changed the HP recovery effect of Dragonblood: Sundering Roar: 5% of Max HP 10 times → 6 times (up to 50% of Max HP)
  • Fixed the issue where Drakania's HP intermittently recovered additional HP when using Doombringer during other skills, even though her HP was more than 50%.
 
Flow: Obliterate
  • Changed the damage in PvP only: -27.3% → -38.6%
 
Maegu
The Awakened Maegu was designed to suddenly ambush adventurers in PvP with debuffs through the Foxflare Ambush, Hazy Path -> Twirling Crane combo. However, even if you managed to apply a debuff, there was no defensive effect when using Wind Step in following combos, so unless you were facing an individual foe, you always had to retreat midway without finishing off the enemy. To address this, we made the Twirling Foxflare -> Flow: Foxflare Encore combo more usable for small and large scale fights. Additionally, to speed up the hit-and-run playstyle of the Awakened Maegu, the HP recovery and cooldown of Twirling Crane have been adjusted.
Awakening
Hazy Path
  • Improved to activate by pressing ↑ + RMB with your main weapon when Heavenward Dance is locked.
 
Twirling Foxflare
  • Added Forward Guard when using the skill.
    • Changed to now apply Stiffness on attack 1 hits upon learning the Core version.
 
Twirling Crane
  • Changed HP recovery: 30% → 40% of Max HP
  • Reduced the cooldown: 18 sec → 16 sec
  • Improved to activate via Quick Slot with your main weapon.
 
Scholar
  • Added Scholar to be selectable as a trial character.
    • Click the "Trial" tab on the top right portion of the character selection screen to create a trial character.
 
Main & Ascension
  • Fixed the issue where hitting multiple targets with your hammers sounded abnormal.

Black Shrine Boss Blitz Teleport

The Black Shrine, where you can challenge the bosses of the Land of the Morning Light with difficulty levels of your choosing, is a piece of content that many adventurers continue to enjoy. Today's update introduces a new feature allowing immediate access to the Boss Blitz location. The Dokkebi Princess, who you encountered in Donghae Province, will help with this. Now, by selecting the desired difficulty level in the Black Shrine UI, you can immediately enter the battle. We hope this update enhances your Black Shrine experience and encourages more of you to take on the challenge of the Black Shrine bosses.

    • Dokkebi Princess has started to cast a special spell for the traveler challenging the Black Shrine.

General Trade

The General Trade conducted via the Order Contract is going into rest. (Processing trade such as ingots/crop boxes will remain as before.) We're currently exploring ways to revamp General Trade to better showcase the diverse features and charm of the vast Black Desert world. As part of this process, we're easing some restrictions on trade items. From now on, you will be able to use the Magnus even when you have fish or coins. Consider this update a step towards easing the various restrictions previously imposed by trade.
  • Trade Managers in each town have decided to temporarily stop handling general trade goods.
    • Changed so that trade goods cannot be purchased from NPCs through Order Contract.
      • The Order Contract function has been removed.
    • The Old Moon Guild Newsletter for trade announcements is no longer available.

    • Magical Mandragora, Witch's Poison Herb, Saffron with Strong Scent, Fantastic Blue Rose, Moonlit Evening Primrose, Medicinal Autumn Bellflower Root
    • Top-quality Haso Silk, Aged Vintage Wine, Knight's Ornamental Sword, Inspired Artisanal Porcelain, Elaborate Glass Handicraft, Gold Decorated Stuffed Animal, Blissful Goddess's Tear

Gathering Tool Simplification

As you progress, you'll be able to explore a wider range of gathering activities with the Magical gathering tools. And for those looking to delve deeper into gathering, the Loggia/Dostter/Manos gathering tools will help you grow into a seasoned Life adventurer.
