If you find something in-game that's different from the Patch Notes, please feel free to contact the support center.


■ Sura

- You can now play Black Desert Mobile as Sura.
- Sura is an Awakened character upon creation.


■ Family Dispatch: Hadum

Developer’s comment:


As new regions continue to be added to the game, collecting Hadum Knowledge might have become a more difficult task, especially when the areas you have yet to gain knowledge from are not the best areas for hunting.

To counter this, we have added the Scout Hadum function, first mentioned during the Calphe:ON Ball. Scout Hadum allows you to dispatch a family character in your stead and gain knowledge in areas where you have yet to reach 100%.We hope that with the constant CP increases, you will find this a helpful new feature!

- Added a Family Dispatch: Scout Hadum feature that allows you to dispatch characters in your family to Hadum's Realm in certain regions to accumulate Hadum Knowledge EXP.
※ You must complete the family quest 'Necessary Supplies' to access Scout Hadum.

- You can start the dispatch by selecting a character to dispatch and the region in Hadum that you want to scout.
- You will need a certain quantity of [Holy Vial of Light] to begin Scout Hadum, and the required amount differs by region.
- You cannot dispatch characters whose CP is below the recommended CP for each region. You may inspect up to one region at a time.

- You can obtain Hadum Knowledge EXP in the area being scouted once it completes.
- Once completed, Knowledge EXP will accrue, but not after max level is reached (100%).
- You cannot inspect regions where your Knowledge EXP is 100%.
- Family Dispatch is available from Balenos to the West Valencia region.
- You cannot send Family Dispatch to the front-line zone.

- Improved Scout Hadum so that you may check the character currently being used for Scout Hadum when the character you are playing with enters the region being scouted. (Added on May 26)


■ Node War & Siege War

- Added Battle-Hardened Ogre to Node War & Siege War.
· Battle-Hardened Ogre will appear in place of the Central Buff Tower in Node War, and of the border battle buff tower in Siege War.

- The guild to deliver the defeating blow to the Battle-Hardened Ogre will get a powerful buff and have the Battle-Hardened Ogre fight on their side in Siege War. (Added on May 26)
- The buff will continue when your character dies. The Battle-Hardened Ogre will disappear when defeated by the enemy guild. (Added on May 26)
- When Battle-Hardened Ogre is defeated by the opposing guild, the powerful buff and Battle-Hardened Ogre will pass onto them. (Added on May 26)


- Battle-Hardened Ogre has different features for Node Wars and Siege Wars

  Characteristic Respawn Time Buff Duration

▷ Camp Objects & Totem: South Mediah, Defeat [Boss: Ferrid]
- Camp Objects refers to Monument of Vitality, Artisan's Monument, and Monument of Battle.

- Adventurers who had access to Path of Glory before today’s patch will be able to access the content as before. We have created a special condition in our database and as a result, for some adventurers it might appear as if you have defeated Mogulis, giving you the title and access to that Boss Rush.

- Changed the condition for opening Emblem slot and equipping Emblem.


▷ Great Desert & Orzeca's Garden: Finish Family Quest [The Opening of the Desert]

- The slots for equipping Relics, Alchemy Stones, Totem, and Emblems will not be visible until the content conditions are met. Please note that Adventurers who have equipped any of the above items before maintenance have been given an exemption in our database to be able to continue using that specific add-on after the maintenance. As a result, some Adventurers will appear as if they have defeated Kelcas, Executioner, Ferrid, or Mogulis and even hold the related titles.
