■ Server Merge

A server merge has been carried out in order to ensure a pleasant adventure through your encounters and interactions with even more adventurers in the world of Black Desert.
Server Merges will take place based on existing channels, and the Family information of existing accounts will be maintained.
In the merged server, you can enjoy content with adventurers on that server for the first time.

Servers that were divided into regions will be merged into one.
After the Server Merge, have even more enjoyable and varied adventures in other servers for the first time.

・Server Merge FAQ
Q. What happens with the existing server?  
- All the ways that you have been playing the game on the regional servers can now be done on one server.

Q. What about existing rank information? 
- It will be recalculated based on the merged server. Ranks will be updated accordingly after maintenance.

※ After the Server Merge, we plan to give a Bell of Gratitude to the adventurers who maintain a top 50 position on the entire server so that they can return the praise they have received from adventurers. (Guild Rank excluded)

※ The given Bells of Gratitude can be used until the maintenance on Feb 22 (Tue), and will be deleted from the game after the update, so keep this in mind. It can be received from your mailbox for up to 3 days from the date it was given.

Q. What about the conquered nodes and successful sieges before maintenance?
Conquered state of nodes and sieges will reset.
After the Server Merge, the bid for the Node/Siege War scheduled to be carried out will be canceled, and the bid cost used before the Node/Siege War bidding deadline will be restored.
Refunds will not be given to guilds that had any nodes/sieges before the update.

Q. What happens to the guild that I have joined?
- The guild you have joined will remain the same even after the Server Merge.
After the Server Merge, you can leave the guild you joined and join another one.
If you join another guild after leaving the guild, please be aware that 7 days (168 hours) need to elapse in order to participate in Siege or Node War.

Q. What happens to the Market prices that vary from server to server?
- Market prices will be determined by selecting a random server among the merged servers.
In addition, if you successfully ordered an item on the Market on your server before the server merge,
the item will be sent to your mailbox after the merge, as if you had collected the order.
However, silver will be sent to your mailbox after the merge if you failed the order for an item.
There's a storage period on your mailbox, so make sure to receive it within the deadline.  

Q. What happens to the Pearls/Black Pearls and other currencies if I have created characters in different servers?
- Since the Family of the affiliated server can be selected from the merged server, Pearls/Black Pearls and other currencies among the Family that were owned on each server with the same account will not be merged.
※ Family names will stay the same even after the Server Merge.
※ Inactive Family names will change after the Server Merge.

A. You will be able to select which Family to use everytime you log into the server.

■ Hero of Karkea

Developer's Comments:
Finally, "Hero of Karkea" welcomes adventurers as regular content.
Hero of Karkea is an equalized battlefield, where CP is adjusted when it is above a certain level.
The CP adjustment range is wider and the level of adjustment will be more thorough than when it was through an event.


In addition, so that you can prepare for this battlefield even when it is not open,
The existing Normal Arena battles have changed to a Normal Arena with adjusted CP, as with Hero of Karkea.
This CP adjustment is applied here regardless of the adventurer's CP Rank.


As our development team has turned Hero of Karkea into regular content,
We will do our best to ensure that adventurers are satisfied with the battlefield
by analyzing and testing the balance between classes more carefully,

We are looking forward to see you all show your abilities in this CP-equalized Arena in Hero of Karkea!

■ Siege War

Developer's Comments:
At the last CalpheON Ball, we introduced the development direction of Siege War to adventurers.
Looking at future development, you will have a lot to look forward to in regards to the new aspects to be added.
You may also see us reiterate on the existing Siege War.


Our development team is working hard to achieve what we previously mentioned to adventurers one by one.
But preparing for this means placing utmost importance on the basics, above all else,
In this update, we'd like to show you one such thing.

■ Gladiator

Developer's Comments:
Gladiators have had some trouble gaining their passive skill effects.
As it could only be activated with [Shield Charge], they were forced to have it as a skill.
With the condition to activate the effect being a manual one, overall efficiency was reduced in Auto-Combat.


This passive skill can now also be activated when using [Ground Smash],
The cooldown effect has also been improved to now apply upon skill use.


In addition, attack range of his main skills has been extended, decreasing the burden of needing to be so close to the enemy.


▷ Spinning Slash
- Spinning Slash (Flow: Ultimate Spinning Slash) attack range has increased.
▷ Ground Smash
- Ground Smash attack range has increased.
▷ Deep Thrust
- It has been improved so that [Deep Thrust] is used more quickly after using Heavy Strike, Shield Charge, or Scars of Dusk.
▷ Strong Principle

[Strong Principle]

Developer's Comments:
Sage and Kunoichi are currently very powerful compared to other classes.
Internal analyses of various PvP content indicates that the
win rates for Kunoichi and Sage are quite high.


Internally, we were aware of this situation and were working on rebalancing the two classes.
However, in the process of adding Sandstorm Assault in Battlefield of the Sun and putting the Black Sun in the Great Desert,
We had to adjust our priorities for certain content.


It was a long process of collecting and analyzing internal data,
So we would like to apologize for the delay in adjusting the balance between Sage and Kunoichi.


Sage went through a balance patch once before, but
he can still overwhelm opponents with high damage from a distance.
We confirmed that his high damage factor greatly synergizes with his passive skills.
In order to balance it with other classes, we decided that modifications were needed in this area.


In addition, Kunoichi boasts a fairly high damage out proportional to Max HP, along with fixed damage effects.
This is enough for her to lead the battle and offset any CP difference to some extent.
This is especially noticeable on small battlefields, so we want to modify her fixed damage and HP-based damage effects.


Our development team is currently working on adding and improving various PvP content.
We are also testing the balance of classes in various PvP content internally.
We are always keeping in mind that the balance of the classes you play in content is the most important.


Within the process of developing various PvP content and releasing them to adventurers,
We'll do our best to carefully review class balance and make adjustments as soon as we can.
