As a New Adventurers taking your first steps into the world of Black Desert, you might be wondering what kind of gear you should be looking to equip and how to get them so that you can take on stronger monsters.
Fortunately, Black Desert helps Beginner Adventurers to grow with quests offered at opportune moments that reward you with useful gear.
While these quests may not have the best type of gear available,
they will be enough to help you complete the Main Questlines.
Use this guide to discover the various types of gear you can obtain from quests.
And if you feel this gear is better than the gear which you currently have, why not try your hand at completing these quests now?
1. Naru Gear
Naru Gear can be obtained by completing the main quests early on in the game,
and you can get one for each slot, including Main/Sub-weapons, all armor and accessories.
You will also earn plenty of Beginner Black Stones to enhance this gear.
They also have a higher chance for successful enhancement than regular gear,
and are of relatively decent quality when you obtain them in the game.
You can also exchange PEN (V) Naru Gear with either Narchillan Gear,
or, if you’re a Season character, for PRI (I) Tuvala Gear of the same slot.
It is truly a must-have gear for New Adventurers.
▲ Ex) PEN (V) Naru Main Weapon
How to Obtain
You will continue to obtain Naru gear as you proceed with the Main Questline.
You can also get Naru gear by exchanging Beginner Black Stones with the NPC Fughar, who is found in major capital cities.
How to Enhance
You will need Beginner Black Stones (Weapon) to enhance Naru weapons and Beginner Black Stones (Armor) to enhance Naru armor.
Accessories can be enhanced by using accessories of the same type that have not been enhanced.
▲ Beginner Black Stones are used to enhance Naru Gear
(Weapons can be enhanced to PEN (V) grade and accessories to TRI (III) grade)
Let’s Exchange PEN (V) Naru Gear - Narchillan, Tuvala
Naru gear is quite useful not only in the early stages of your adventure,
but also for being exchangeable for even higher quality gear.
You can exchange Naru gear for “Narchillan” or “Tuvala” gear.
▲ Sufficient gear to push towards more difficult content
- Narchillan Gear
Narchillan gear can be exchanged with PEN (V) Naru gear after accepting a quest available once per Family.
To proceed with this quest, you will either have to had completed the Calpheon Main Questline with a Lv. 50 or higher character, or simply be on character who is Lv. 56 or above.
If you meet all these conditions, you can summon the Black Spirit (Hotkey: , ) and accept the “[Special Aid] Fughar’s Letter” quest.
▲ Click ”[Special Aid] Fughar’s Letter!”
After accepting the quest, try looking for the NPC Fughar, who is located in all major capital cities.
You can talk to Fughar in any town he appears in to continue the quest.

- Tuvala Gear
Season characters can exchange PEN(V) Naru gear for PRI(I) Tuvala gear.
If you have a piece of PEN (V) Naru gear and have completed the Mediah Main Questline, you can exchange it by talking to Fughar in any town.
In the process of enhancing Tuvala gear, quite often you’ll be running low on Time-filled Black Stones,
but enhancing your Naru gear to PEN(V) grade and exchanging it with Tuvala gear
will save you the many Time-filled Black Stones required for enhancing Tuvala gear.
2. Magical Gear
You can get Magical gear from quests available after reaching Lv. 50.
However, this gear isn’t available for new characters created after the Main Questlines were revamped in July 2020, but only for characters who had accepted the quests prior to the revamp.
Magical gear consists of Magical Armor, and Magical Sub-weapons,
and the questline involves you enhancing the gear you obtain early on from the quest
to ultimately craft the “Roaring Magical Armor” and “Weapon of Sealed Magical Power.”
The quality of the gear obtained is similar to that of PEN(V) Naru gear.
At first glance, you might not be able to see its true value, but being that you can easily obtain it just by leveling up,
there's no need to turn down the chance to increase your power,
especially since Roaring Magical Armor can be used by all characters in your Family and thus is quite useful for when you create a new character.
▲ With each quest completed, the gear becomes stronger.
