Greetings Adventurers,

Here are the latest update details for Black Desert Online on July 21, 2021 (Wed). Today’s patch contains 110 updates and is approximately 1.12 GB.

Atoraxxion – Vahmalkea

3ba569af2e320210721013643116

● Atoraxxion – Vahmalkea, the Last Stronghold built to fend off the dark invaders, has been discovered.
– Added the Black Spirit main quest “[5-person Co-op] The Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion” to begin your expedition to Vahmalkea. The requirements for this quest are as follows:
– Lv. 57 or higher
– Completed the questline “Invitation from I”
– Completed either the awakening or succession questline

– You can continue to enter Atoraxxion after obtaining the Knowledge about “Talibre's Tear” and “Talibre's Door” which can be obtained during the Atoraxxion main questline by going to the Ancient Stone Chamber and making more of the item “Talibre's Tear.”
– Created a new Knowledge category for Knowledge pertaining to Atoraxxion Vahmalkea.
– The quest “[Atoraxxion] Vaha's Time Capsule,” which is the last quest in the main questline “[5-person Co-op] The Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion,” can only be completed once per family.
* If you wish to return to the Ancient Stone Chamber while in Atoraxxion, you can go to the first Sol Magia located at the entrance of Vaha's Sky and interact with it by selecting “[Teleport] To the Ancient Stone Chamber.”

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 The Atoraxxion main questline requires five Adventurers to proceed as it is very difficult for a single Adventurer to complete on their own. Additionally, we have added voice-overs to all the major lines for the first time in Black Desert history to help our Adventurers get truly immersed in this content. We wish you good luck on your adventure with the adorable member of the Secret Guards, Yaz!
● Atoraxxion Vahmalkea is mostly made of normal fields. Adventurers will be able to see other Adventurers that are in the same server. However, the final boss “Apex Lucretia” in Vahmalkea is in an instanced area, so Adventurers will have to focus their efforts to defeat it with their party.
– In the normal field of Vahmalkea, you will see elite Ancient Weapons (marked with the star icon on the minimap). They are called: Cetus, Monoceros, Lacerta, Creomar, and Putrakium. Each of them have a particular weakness that will allow you to defeat them quickly. Additionally, the bosses Krahtenn and Ahtenn that appear can be defeated using special tactics.
– The final boss “Apex Lucretia” is extremely powerful. It is crucial that you work together with your party to defeat it. You will not be able resurrect while combat is ongoing. When all party members die, the fight will reset and the party will be able to try again.
– Death penalties are applied when characters die in the normal fields. However, death penalties will not apply to deaths against the final boss “Apex Lucretia.”
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 The ultimate goal in Atoraxxion Vahmalkea is to enter and defeat the final boss. You will need to fight the regular ancient weapons to get items that act as keys to the next area. Progress through each of these areas to eventually reach “Vaha's Cradle” when the final boss awaits our Adventurers. Also, you can log into an Elvia Realm Server to fight against even more difficult ancient weapons and the final boss “Apex Lucretia.” Therefore, we recommend getting used to the normal version first before going into the harder Elvia Realm version. P.S. – Here's a small tip for our Adventurers entering Vahmalkea with their party: You can press SHIFT+` to ping a location for your party in Vahmalkea!
● Atoraxxion Vahmalkea is divided into multiple areas by the “Darkened Dawn” (a type of wall) to fend off the dark invaders more effectively.
– Each of these areas are blocked off from each other through an ancient piece of tech called “Sol Magia.” To take control of the “Sol Magia,” you will need special items that act as keys.

* All the loot obtained from Atoraxxion (except the item “Lucretia's Dagger” and the loot dropped by the final boss “Apex Lucretia”) will be removed once you leave “Vaha's Paradise,” which can be entered after defeating “Apex Lucretia.”
– The party leader must have the required key items to take control of the “Sol Magia” (except for the item “Lucretia Dagger”).
– The method of obtaining the required materials are as follows:

* Krahtenn appears at a set chance while Adventurers defeat regular ancient weapons in Vaha's Heart.
* The drop rate for each of the materials required are affected by item drop rate buffs.
● “Vaha's Cold Thorn” is a currency in Atoraxxion Vahmalkea that is obtained from defeating Ancient Weapons. It can be exchanged for various items at the Atoraxxion Exchange. Atoraxxion Exchanges are located in Vaha's Sky and Vaha's Heart.

* The three types of party elixirs that can be gained in exchange for “Vaha's Cold Thorn x5” can only be used in Vahmalkea. However, they cannot be used in Vaha's Cradle where “Apex Lucretia” is located.
● Vaha's Spear has been activated in Vaha's Sky and Vaha's Query of Atoraxxion Vahmalkea as dark invaders were detected.
ab241a077742021072101394981242945c7811720210721014004328
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 Vaha's Spear is a trap device that can be found in the earlier areas of Vahmalkea. Adventurers will need to keep their eyes peeled for these devices while venturing through Atoraxxion Vahmalkea.

● The normal fields in Atoraxxion are different from other monster zones in that you will not get loot from the regular ancient weapons. The only monster that drops loot is the final boss. Additionally, after defeating the final boss “Apex Lucretia,” you will be able to obtain “special loot” in Vaha's Paradise twice a week.
– The “special loot” can be obtained by completing the following quests with the “Vaha's Time Capsule” that protects Vaha's Paradise.

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 During last year's Calpheon Ball, we introduced Atoraxxion to our Adventurers for the first time. Now, we have finally brough this update to you! Black Desert provides a variety of party content like Savage Rift, Gyfin Rhasia Temple, Altar of Blood, Olun's Valley, and party monster zones for co-op play. Still, many of our Adventurers wanted more party content that was even more fun. Therefore, we decided last winter to create a brand new co-op dungeon. Something that is quite different from all the other content we have released until now. We have contemplated for a long time on how to bring the awesome fun of Black Desert action to co-op play in a natural manner. We are deeply moved by this momentous occasion, where at the end of our long deliberation, we are now able to present to you the results of our struggle. Thank you, Adventurers, for waiting and trusting us. We simply hope you will enjoy it. We will return with our next biome, this one underwater themed: “”Sycrakea.””

FYI – “”Atoraxxion”” actually means “”Ator's Paradise”” in the ancient language.

New and Improvements

Character

● Fixed the issue where the invincibility status could be maintained in Spectator Mode when entering the mode after using the Lantern items.
● Fixed the issue with certain classes where pressing Tab then Shift while moving forward in combat stance would cause the character to activate a skill instead of using sprint.
– The above issue was resolved for the following classes:

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 The “Melee Evasion Rate” effect from the Kunoichi and Ninja's passive skill were confirmed to be showing the wrong numbers. As we know how important these numbers are for classes, we will strive to do our best to prevent other issues like this from occurring in the future by improving our internal work process.

● Fixed the issue where her underwear appeared abnormal when wearing certain outfits and standing on a slope.
● Fixed the issue where her knees would go through the outfit when there was a knee-bending motion in idle/combat stance.
– The above issue was resolved for the following outfits:

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 The issue where the Shai's knee would go through her outfits was an unfortunate issue for us. It was an issue that was very difficult to solve structurally. However, we believed this needed to be fixed, so after the Calpheon Ball last year, we kept looking for different solutions. We concluded that it would be much better if we manually went through the motion, frame by frame. And now, we are able to show you the fruit of our labor. We would have liked to resolve this issue sooner, however, this issue required time to solve. We hope this will be a small but meaningful update for our Adventurers that enjoy their Shai. We will get to the regular outfits that are not on this list as soon as we can.

● Fixed the issue where he could activate another attack skill when transitioning into non-combat stance after sprinting.

● Overflow – Increased the attack range for all levels of the skill.
● Overflow – Changed to not activate by pressing Shift + Q.
– Regardless of what skill was used before, Wipe Out will be activated when the above command is pressed.
● Storming Gale – Changed to not activate by pressing ↑ + F or↓ + F.

● Wave Lash – Changed to be able to combo into other skills smoothly after the 2nd hit.

Item

● Increased the drop rate of the item “Dragon Scale Fossil” in the following three monster zones: Tshira Ruins, Blood Wolf Settlement, and Sherekhan Necropolis (Day, Night).
● Changed the appearance rate of Old Drieghanese Crate (in the Drieghan region monster zones: Sherekhan Necropolis, Blood Wolf Settlement, Tshira Ruins) to always appear when Garmoth does her fire attack.
– Additionally, increased the amount of “”Dragon Scale Fossil”” dropped by Old Drieghanese Crate from only [x1] to [x5 – x10.]

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 We have adjusted the amount of “Dragon Scale Fossil” dropped in Drieghan. Not only can you get more scales from each of the monster zones, but also from the random event where Garmoth attacks. Additionally, we have been keeping a close watch over each of the servers after we increased the drop rate of Caphras Stones for each of the monster zones. We will continue to keep close watch moving forward. So, there could be changes made to how Caphras Stones are obtained, Gathering, Blackstar defense gear, and the various rewards.

Contents

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 During our rotation in the monster zones, we know the excitement that comes when a random Afuaru appears! So, we gave him a special visual effect to make it easier to spot him. We hope this helps our Adventurers to spot him easier as to not out on his loot!

Mount

Background, NPC, Effects, Cutscene

● The Blue Maned Lion's Manor has taken up land between Heidel and the Eastern Border. The manor is currently still under construction, so the manor cannot be rented out at this time.
– As the Blue Maned Lion's Manor has taken up the land, the surrounding area is now designated as a safe zone.
– All fences and crops that are in the vicinity of the Blue Maned Lion's Manor were sent to Heidel Storage.
– All the forts built around the area were moved to somewhere nearby.

b86561f2b9620210713065218674 As of today's update, the Domongatt family took up a plot of land between Heidel and the Eastern Border for their manor.

Conquest War, Node War

● Improved the guild skill “Command to Gather” (that was previously only available to the Guild Masters) so that guild Advisors can use it as well.
● Changed “Command to Gather” so that, if it was used before the start of Node/Conquest War, it cannot be moved after the war begins.
● Made the following changes for the requirements to use the skill “Command to Gather”:
BeforeAfter
The skill can be used when all the Guild Advisors and Guild Master are online on the server where the Node/Conquest War is held.The skill can be used when the Guild Advisor and Guild Master are on the server where the Node/Conquest War is held.
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 Many of our Adventurers asked for the skill “Command to Gather” to be changed so that guild officials other than the Guild Master can use. Actually, we planned to have this changed when we first released the Guild Advisor position. However, due to structural issues in development, it was not as simple as we anticipated and, thus, took longer. We apologize for the delay. However, we are currently considering how to expand on the guild officials and continue to improve on this point.
● Changed the World Map (M) to display the AP and defense restrictions for Level 1 Node Wars and compare it to your highest stats.
– Added the detail that the stats shown in the restrictions UI are equal to total stats (which is shown in the View My Stats UI).
– For the AP related stats, the numbers will show main weapon AP and awakening weapon AP separately.
– For the defense related stats, the numbers will show Evasion, Evasion Rate, Damage Reduction separately.
– Each of the stats that are under the restriction for the Level 1 Node War will be shown in red on the UI. Stats above the restriction will be shown in green.
355f1ecd6e320210721025855114
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 We have changed how the stat restrictions work in Level 1 Node Wars. It will no longer be limited to the simple AP/DP figures. It is now based off the total stats. The total stats can be seen on the new View My Stats window and Equipment window. We did consider the use of gear with bonus AP, food, elixirs, and various buffs, however, a method of dealing with this issue was overlooked. Therefore, we would like to apologize for showing only the simple AP/DP numbers and creating confusion in the community. We will continue to improve on our internal process to not overlook issues like these in the future. Furthermore, we are considering putting restrictions on Accuracy, Damage Reduction Rate, and Resistance to level 1 nodes to make it even more befitting of the original vision to make level 1 nodes a good staring place for guilds preparing to get into Node Wars.
● Changed the restriction numbers for each of the offensive and defensive stats for the different levels of Lv. 1 Node War.
Detailed Numbers for Final Restrictions
Node LevelAP RestrictionEvasion RestrictionEvasion Rate RestrictionDamage Reduction Restriction
Lv. 1 Easy26175515%181
Lv. 1 Medium30078715%215
Lv. 1 Hard31880515%225
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 We have lowered the stat restrictions for AP and defense stats so that Adventurers that are earlier on in their progression can join in the Node War fun. You will be able to see the details in the World Map (M) when you click on the level 1 nodes. As for the fortresses and annexes used in level 1 Node War, their DP and durability will remain the same as their previous stats were not that high. Additionally, we will be putting restrictions on Accuracy and Resistance in future patches. As for HP, as it is not a static stat, as it can be increased by the use of buffs, we are considering putting a max restrictions on it as well.

● Fixed the issue where the added DP from Node/Conquest War character skills Yianaros's Light, Pilgrim's Steps, and Knight's Defense were not calculated into the level 1 Node War restrictions.

UI

● Added a function where you can search for items you have in your Inventory, Pearl Inventory, Family Inventory, and Central Market Warehouse.

– When using the Inventory Search function, an X button will appear where you can click to reset the search.
– A description will be displayed for the search reset button.

● Added more detailed information about the current character to the Inventory window (I) and View My Stats window (P).

cca184f465620210721030217051
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 Now, you will be able to see all the stats for your character in the Inventory window and View My Stats window. You will also be able to see all the effects that affect them (extra damage, equipped crystals, food, elixirs, and all other buffs) in real-time. * However, the skills Yianaros's Light, Pilgrim's Steps, and Knight's Defense that only apply in Node Wars will not be applied. We have also received additional feedback that Adventurers would like to see even more stats then the ones listed right now after this feature's release on Global Lab. These are currently being developed. When we are done, it will be released on Global Lab.
● Changed the Transfusion UI to switch between the tabs on the right depending on whether or not an item is selected.
– When a gear item is selected, the tab will be changed to the Crystal tab.
– While on the Crystal tab, RMB on the selected gear to remove it.
– When the gear is removed while on the Crystal tab, the tab returns to the Equipment tab.
b86561f2b9620210713065218674 This may not seem like a major patch, but we wanted to apply this change to save our Adventurers the trouble of needing to click the tab to Transfuse. We will continue to make these minor but meaningful QoL updates in the future.
● Changed the Recently Used menu to display the Black Spirit's Adventure when you select the Black Spirit's Adventure Dice alert UI on the bottom right of the screen, to make it easier to look for it again.

– Added a simple description of how to rent a house with Contribution EXP on the message that appears on the pop-up UI when you click on the + button on the last slot of Storage.
● Added an effect where a guide and a description are displayed when you hover your mouse over a crew member who gets ill.
