CBT-1 Events

Greetings Everyone!

The first closed beta is almost here and we are proud to announce our first series of in-game events.  For those of you with a Conqueror’s Package, or the lucky winners of the CBT Key Giveaways, there will be several events hosted throughout the duration of the test.  Keep reading to see what is in store, and we look forward to seeing everyone in game soon.

1. Dye Away!

    Start: Thursday, Dec. 17th 9:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 3:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]
    Repeats every day at 9:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 3:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]

Black Desert provides an extensive dye system that actually allows you to dye various parts of your equipment.  We want to give everyone the chance to see the dye system, and let us know what you think about it.  To make sure each participant has this opportunity, we will send out five dye bundles, each with three dyes, every day of the closed beta test.  You will be able to apply these dyes to your equipment or, if you do not get the color you are looking for, you can combine any two dyes to get a new random dye.

You can access the dye combination page by hitting Esc in game and then clicking the combine button.  Please note you do not need to be online to receive your dye, it will be delivered via the mail system

2. Fishing Tournament

    Start: Wednesday, Dec. 16th  8:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 2:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]
    End: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd  8:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 2:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]

Fishing is one of multiple professions in Black Desert, sporting over one hundred fish that are unique to different regions.  Some fish can only be found in freshwater, while others are exclusive to salt water.  When the Bait Master Tour begins, every player can make their way over to Cron Castle Cliff and try their luck at catching a Beltfish.  Once you have managed to catch one, take a screenshot of the fish in your inventory along with your character sheet and post it on the forums in the Fishing Tournament thread.  Every player that provides proof of their catch will be awarded a unique title once the game launches.

Cron Castle Cliff

If you are new to fishing and would like to participate in this event there are a few things you should try to do beforehand to make sure you are prepared.  Most importantly, you will need to get a fishing rod.  You can purchase one in Velia, from Fish Vendor Crio. Once you have that make your way to the Cron Castle Cliff.  To start fishing, all you have to do is equip the fishing rod, walk up to the water and hit space bar.  After a couple tries you should start catching fish and increasing your fishing skill.  Keep at it and you will be able to catch your own Beltfish to earn the title.

3. Horse Whisperer

    Thursday, Dec. 17th – Sunday, Dec. 20th
    08:00 p.m. CET [EU Server] / 10:00 p.m. EST [NA Server]

As some of you know, and others will soon find out, the Black Desert world is large.  Sometimes you need to get somewhere and running simply is not quick enough.  From Thursday through Sunday, our GMs will roam around the world between 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. to summon wild horses for you to see how taming works.  This will be a great time to learn the ropes and catch your first mount.  If you want to participate in this event, you will need to level your taming skill to Beginner Lv 5. You can do this by riding a donkey or vendor mount, available from every Stable-hand.

Once your taming skill is Beginner Lv 5 you will need to craft some sugar Lumps and purchase a few Capturing Ropes.  To craft a sugar lump you will need to purchase 10 raw sugar and 1 mineral water, from any Chef, which you can usually find in an inn, then you heat the together with the production menu (J). Capturing Ropes can be purchased from any stable-hand.

Location Hint

4. The Festival of Lanterns

    Saturday, Dec. 19th – Sunday, Dec. 20th
    09:00 p.m. CET [EU Server] / 10:00 p.m. EST [NA Server]

The announcement of darker, more realistic nights sparked a lot of great feedback from the community.  The fourth event invites everyone to make their way to Serendia to the south of Hidel or the Temple of Agris west of Velia, in the dead of night in channels 1 and 3.  For the duration of this event you will get to experience the new stormy night weather effect. Don’t worry though, everyone will be given a lantern to light their way.  Players who join us will be right on time to see what’s lurking in the shadows.

Serendia Temple

Altar of Agris

5. Shadows Looming

    Saturday, Dec. 19th – Sunday, Dec. 20th
    08:00 p.m. CET [EU Server] / 10:00 p.m. EST [NA Server]

This event will show everyone why it is dangerous to go alone into the night.  There are monsters in the world that are simply too powerful for any one person to face without allies.  All those gathered together at the Serendia Temple and Temple of Agris in channels 1 & 3 will have to work together if they want to take down one of the strongest monsters in the game.

6. Copy Cat

    Start: Wednesday, Dec. 16th - Tuesday, Dec. 22nd

One of the most impressive features of Black Desert is surely its incredible Character Creation Module (CCM). We would like to invite everyone to experience the richness of this feature and recreate yourself, a friend, an actor or just anyone that comes into your mind and participate in our Facebook event. All you need to do is to take a screenshot

[Default key: Print Screen à C:\Users\PC_Name\Documents\Black Desert\ScreenShot]

and use your newly created character to replace your profile picture on Facebook. Then head over to our Facebook page and leave a comment to this announcement.

We will pick 30 lucky winners and ask them to contact us via Facebook to share their address. Our lucky winners will receive a very unique “Drawstring Bag” with a Black Desert Design, which we gave away at Paris Games Week.

Note: The character you have created must bee on the Europe or America server. Please post your Family Name along with your message on Facebook.

Best of luck!

CBT-1 Patch Notes

Greetings Testers,

I would like to welcome our testers to the first closed beta for Black Desert Online!  The last week has kept us busy with a flurry of key giveaways and preparation.  We still have a lot of work in front of us before release, but this test is the next step forward.  Continue reading to see a detailed breakdown of the changes in our first set of patch notes.

Closed Beta Test 1 - Patch Notes

Character Creation

    Naming Policy

      Names may be from 3-16 characters long, and include letters, numbers and _(Underscore).
      Letters can only be used 2 times, consecutively. (ex: XxJohn)
      No more than 4 numbers may be used at the end of a name.
      The _ (Underscore) is allowed once and can only be placed between a minimum of two characters. (ex: CM_Jouska




Karma, Level Progression, Trading have not been changed from Alpha build, as we are looking into a richer feedback from the increased population on our CBT1 servers.

    Level Cap

      The level cap has been raised from 30, to 50.
      You will still be able to gain additional skill points once you have reached the level cap.


      PvP is enabled from level 30 onward.
      Karma is unchanged from Alpha. (60k loss, per kill)


      Guild quests have been enabled.
      Guild wars are enabled. They cost 150,000 silver to initiate, with no additional cost to maintain the guild war.
      Guild Protection has been enabled.  A guild will be able to protect 10 members from guild wars, so long as they are not an officer or the Guild Leader.  This protection cannot be revoked until 24 hours have passed from the time it was enabled.  Guilds may also invest their skill points to unlock additional protection slots, up to a maximum of 20.

    Player Trading

      Player to player trade is unchanged from Alpha, and is limited to consumable items only.


      Lanterns have been added to Merchant NPC’s. Purchased lanterns have a maximum duration of 60 minutes.
      Health potions have a 5 second cooldown.

    Field Bosses

      Three new field bosses have been added: Red Nose Imp, Hebetate Tree Spirit, and Giant Mudster.  Unlike bosses summoned from Scrolls, engaging these bosses will not employ phasing mechanics, allowing players to battle over the kills.


      Calpheon has been unlocked.
      Illya Island has been unlocked.
      Pirate Island is unavailable.


      Nights are now darker.
      Snow and Windstorms have been added.

    Energy System

      Energy is now required for Production, Cooking and Alchemy. This was done to balance the economical gain between Life and Combat content. Professions will take more time to level up, and Energy costs will prevent saturating the market with materials and products, to better balance supply and demand.



      EU and NA regions will each have their own server, with a maximum of five channels, but channels 4 & 5 will be locked unless needed to accommodate the amount of testers participating.
      Changing channels has a 15 minute cooldown.
      We are using the regular server setup with only 1 server / world (EU + NA) as the limited population during CBT1 will not require more servers to be opened. 


      The launcher has been updated. To access the game, you will use the same login as the Official Forums.


      Localization has been improved, across all aspects of gameplay.
      Optional Chat Filter has been added.
      Character Outline/Silhouette Options have been added.

    Custom Quick Slots

      Quick slots allow a player to set up a specific hotkey to activate items or skills without using up their hotbar.
      In order to activate this feature, go into “Settings” and check the box next to Quick Slots.
      To add an item or skill to a Quick Slot, drag it into any position desired on your screen. A menu will appear, allowing you to set the desired hotkey to activate that slot.

Known Issues


    UI & Graphics

      Some skill descriptions are missing.
      Size adjustment failed due to the game option selection being set beyond the max resolution of the screen.
      Once you equip a fishing rod it will be displayed on the character select screen.
      Currently the Wizard cannot disable helmet display.


      Text on some Icons/Buttons is off center.
      Text is overlapping or longer than the UI.
      Voice overs have been disabled.
      Tutorials have been disabled.
      When registering a Horse, Donkey, Wagon, or Boat the Naming Policy window opens but the text is not displayed.
      Crafting Note has been enabled, but translation is not complete.
      Marketplace windows display the wrong text when confirming a purchase or selecting how many items you want to buy.


      You cannot refill lanterns.
      Stormy Night feature will be enabled manually by GMs for stress testing.


      Currently Field Bosses must be manually respawned by GMs.
      Lack of monsters in starting area in case of huge player base.


      Imbalance between character level and quest level.

Valencia Part 2 Update brings major PvP changes

While the European and North American Closed Beta is coming closer and closer the Korean Version of Black Desert keeps getting one big content patch after another. The Valencia Update brings some huge changes especially for PvP. You can find a summary from reddit User LuckyFennex below.

New PK system applied to Valencia

    Karma penalties significantly reduced
    No weapon enchant degrading or gem loss on death EXP loss still applies
    ‘Prison camp’ system: red tendency players will be confined to prison camps. Jail time increases based on the amount of people you’ve killed. However, it is possible to use the stealth system to sneak past prison guards and escape early.
    Players with positive karma can earn ‘Seals of the Bounty Hunter’ by slaying red tendency players.


2 New town hubs

    Arehaja village & Mui Kun
    Mui Kun is the outlaw town. Positive karma players will get attacked by guards; negative karma players won’t!
    Mui Kun has it’s own set of daily quests with rewards that apply to negative karma players.


Valencia trade reform

    Trading in Valencia will be more beneficial.
    Increased sales benefit from trading to/from Valencia City compared to other parts of the world
    Of course, beware red tendency players from raiding your trade wagons as they are no longer heavily penalised for doing so.


New desert resources

    ‘Black Water’ can be harvested by guilds building new extractors in the desert. Black Water is expected to be a highly beneficial resource in the future. References to sailing boats and ‘trains’ that will benefit from Black Water. (Personal interpretation: ‘Black Water’ could easily be a reference to ‘Black Liquid’ aka oil. This ‘trains’ reference is giving me There Will Be Blood flashbacks haha).
    Guilds will need to keep an eye on their extractors, and they will require maintenance (eg. damage from sandstorms).
    Warring guilds can raid and destroy other guilds’ extractors. Protect them!


New dungeons

    Akuman Ruins & Histria Ruins
    Akuman dungeon is tied to the mystery of the ancient civilisation protectors.
    Histria dungeon is tied to/is a continuation of the lore established in the Hasra dungeon in Media.
    Histria is of an ‘overwhelming’ scale compared to Hasra dungeon.
    New rare and unique item drops from the new dungeons
    Entering the dungeons requires ‘a sense of adventure and luck’. Randomised dungeon entrance location (think Nuber world dragon spawns). Traveling with other adventurers is advised so that the party can spread out and locate the ‘swirling sands’ that mark the dungeon entrance more efficiently.
    Difficult mobs populate the dungeons, advised to enter as a party or a guild.

New elite desert monsters & goblin bandits

    Difficulty tuned where it’s advisable to bring friends to tackle them.
    Goblin bandits will appear in the desert. Loot them for a chance at earning bandit loot (rare artifacts, or even bullion). You can catch them using taming ropes (lol). Sugar lumps do nothing (lol).

Annex functionality comes online

    All those annexes marked on the world map in Valencia will have their functionality unlocked.
    You can buy a ticket to access annex servcies, which include unique daily quests, and NPC merchants.
    You can also use your annex access to tame baby elephants – unlocking elephants for personal use(?) like horses and donkeys.
    New knowledge to be gained by visiting all the various annexes.

Update launch in December 2015. Not all updates may make it into the first release, as they will be released sequentially over a period of time (speculation: weekly updates will constantly introduce the elements outlined above).
