Adventurer's Guide

Season Progression Basics

Summary

- We recommend that you progress your season character via the main questline.

- For Adventurers who are well-adapted to playing Black Desert, the simplified main questline is a way to progress quickly.

- Refer to the Season Pass for easier character progression while receiving rewards.


Leveling Your Season Character

■ Progressing via the main questline.

If you are an Adventurer on a Season Server for the first time, it is recommended that you progress your character via the main questline.

Even if you have been playing Black Desert, it is recommended that you progress your character via the main questline if you are not used to the world of Black Desert.

 

You can experience the world of Black Desert as you complete a variety of quests in the main questline. Also, you can receive a variety of rewards helpful in progressing your character.

 

You can accept quests from the main questline from the “Main Quest” option from the Black Spirit (hotkey: ,).

 

▲ You can press (,) to summon the Black Spirit and accept a Main Quest (Q).

 

You can check the main quests that you have accepted from the Main Quest window on the right part of the screen. Right-click to navigate to the quest location.

  

You can conveniently move to the location by using Auto Run (hotkey: T) while the Navigate function is activated.

 

▲ You can auto-run to your destination by pressing T when the Navigate function is activated.
 

■ Which Crossroads quest should you select? “Choose any.”

You may get the “Crossroads Quest” option while proceeding with the main questline.

 

You can check a synopsis of the storylines for each Crossroads quest when you highlight them.

 

No matter which quest you select, the overall gameplay is unaffected, but there are obtainable Knowledges and storylines that you can experience only for certain Crossroads quests. You can freely choose any Crossroads quest since you can continue with the main storyline once you’ve completed the Crossroads quest.

▲ It doesn’t matter which Crossroads quest you select. You can even check the number of times you’ve selected each Crossroads quest.

 

However, if you already are an Adventurer, you may see the [Crossroads] simplified questline after talking to Alustin, the Alchemist, in Velia.

 

Please refer to the following since there’s a unique factor for the [Crossroads] simplified questline in Season Servers.

  

■ If you are a seasoned Adventurer, you can progress quickly via the simplified questline.

 

 

If any character in your Family has completed the ”[Pet] Bareeds' Junaid” main quest (can be completed once you’ve completed the Mediah main questline), you can skip the main questline up to the Mediah questline via the ”simplified” questline.

Although you can receive the main rewards from the main questline every time you reach a certain level when selecting the simplified questline, you need to level up by finding and going to the monster zones yourself since you there are no main quests to complete.

 

It may be a fast way to progress a character for Adventurers who are well-adapted to the world of Black Desert. However, Adventurers who are not yet familiar with the game may have difficulty with the simplified questline, so think carefully before selecting.

 

■ Gear for Season Characters

Season characters cannot equip normal gear. They can only equip season-exclusive gear or gear obtained from the main questline.

 

Adventurers usually enhance Naru gear up to PEN (V) and exchange it for Tuvala gear, then enhance the Tuvala gear up to PEN (V) and equip those.

 

Check out the details on the guide below:

 

Season Gear Guide ▶

 


Season Pass

 

 

You can receive rewards for the progression of your character via the Season Pass on a Season Server. Also, you can refer to the Season Pass as a guide for details on the different contents available on a Season Server and how to further progress your character.

 

※ You can complete the Season Pass by talking to the Black Spirit (,) once your character has reached a certain level while on the simplified questline.

 

Once you’ve completed all the Season Pass objectives, you can convert your season character to a normal character during the “Season Server Early Graduation” period.

 

There are Black Spirit Pass rewards for the Season Pass, and you can receive additional rewards with the Black Spirit Pass once you purchase it via the Pearl Shop.

The contents of the Season Pass objectives and rewards may vary depending on the Season.
