Fixes and Improvements

● Fixed an issue with the Emergency Escape skill where the final standby animation was not visible and skills could be used immediately afterward.
- This fix is being implemented first on the servers where the Arena of Arsha Championship will take place between May 1 (Sat) - May 2 (Sun). The fix will also be applied to all servers during the maintenance on May 4 (Tue).

The issue with Emergency Escape not properly transitioning to the final standby animation in certain situations is something that has been continuously reported to us by our Adventurers and also one of the issues that we’ve hoped to fix as soon as possible. However, this is an issue that is fundamentally difficult to solve perfectly. We’ve implemented some improvements, but it isn’t 100% resolved yet. Nevertheless, we are still looking for ways to fix this issue completely, and our close analysis of the matches during the current NA/EU Arena of Arsha Championship has helped us discover new ways to possibly solve this issue. (For instance, we also completely fixed an issue where Emergency Escape would end early thanks to the Arena of Arsha Championship previously held in Korea.)

As a result of today’s partial server maintenance, we’ve implemented a first-pass patch for this issue on the servers where the Round of 8 will take place for Arena of Arsha Championships starting this May 1 (Sat). This fix will also be implemented to the rest of the live servers during the maintenance on May 4 (Tue).

We want to thank all our Adventurers who have helped us by actively sending us reports, and we’ll do our best to provide a better service.


Please enjoy your time playing Black Desert.

Thank you.
