You can join the battlefield anytime, anywhere since karma or guild membership do not matter.
How to EnterYou can access the Red Battlefield by going to the main menu (hotkey: Esc) → War (F7) → Red Battlefield.
Once you press the button from the main menu, the Red Battlefield Status window will appear.
From here you can access the desired battlefield available.
The battlefield has a variety of areas you can fight in, such as the capital of Valencia where points are acquired by occupying areas, and Garmoth's Nest and Castle Ruins which play in a team deathmatch format.
The rules of each battlefield can be checked through the Red Battlefield Rules section on the right when you hover your cursor over the Enter button.
Castle Ruins & Garmoth’s Nest
Upon entering the Red Battlefield, characters are automatically assigned to one of the two opposing teams: the Black Desert or the Red Desert camps.
If at least one character is assigned to each team, the Red Battlefield will begin after a brief preparation time.
In this format, the Red Battlefield is a 20-minute battle between two factions.
You can join up to 10 minutes after the match has started, but not after this time has passed.
If this happens, you have to wait for the battle to end and a new one to start again.
When the battle begins, participants are moved to the red battlefield area.
If you leave the red battlefield area or the game closes, you will be moved to the original location you were in before.
At this point, if this happened 10 minutes before the battle started, you can rejoin the battle in progress.
During the time limit, you can freely deal with the enemies of the opposite faction as you like.
Points accumulated until the end of the match are added up, and the side with the highest score wins.
Points are earned when you defeat a character from the opposing faction.
The number of points acquired depends on the number of points possessed by the defeated character.
There are no special restrictions when respawning in the Red Battlefield.
It's better not to be afraid of death and actively enjoy combat.
|When you defeat an enemy
|Gain half (1/2) of the points the enemy Adventurer has, at least 1 point
|When you’re defeated by an enemy
|Lose a quarter (1/4) of your points, at least 1 point
However, if you only have 1 point, you won’t lose it when you’re defeated
Further details can be found on the [Red Battlefield: Valencia City] page.
For Your Information!
You can use any of the potions you have at the Red Battlefield, but it will be much cheaper to use the potions that the Quartermaster NPC within the battlefield sells.
The price of each potion is just 1 silver, and they only weigh 0,01LT.
Also, if you interact with the Quartermaster NPC in the Garmoth’s Nest battlefield, a button that says ‘Effect of Strong Protection’ appears. When you click this, you’ll get the Evasion Up and Damage Reduction Increase effects for about 20 seconds. (You’ll be almost invincible for 20 seconds, since it’s very powerful)
This buff is applied automatically when entering the Castle Ruins and Valencia City battlefields.
This NPC will also give you daily and weekly quests.
