Featured Updates


- The new class "Woosa" will already be Ascended upon creation.
- Woosa has 4 active skills upon creation and can learn more skills as she levels up.
- You can obtain the title "Fluttering Butterfly" upon reaching Lv 10 with Woosa.
- Increased max character slots by 1 for the new class release.

Developer Commentary:

We would first like to thank our Adventurers for all the love and support towards Maegu.

Following Maegu, the butterfly on the path to enlightenment makes an entrance in Black Desert Mobile. She is Woosa, a Do wielder of the Woodo School.

With her butterfly-summoning fan and Do Stave, Woosa hails from the Woodo School, a group of those who temper their body and mind to wield the Do.

She can deliver quick strikes with her folded fan, or imbue her fan with her Do arts, spreading it open for area-of-effect attacks.

Woosa’s Do arts can summon a huge storm from the beating wings of a butterfly. She can also draw up the power of the Sagoonja from within.

Like the gently fluttering wings of the butterfly, she gracefully flits around the battlefield, overwhelming her foes.

With Woosa's arrival in Black Desert Mobile, Black Desert's first-ever twin classes have finally reunited.
We hope our Adventurers show Woosa, the Do wielder of the Woodo School, the same love and support you've sent our way.

When we announced Maegu during the Calpheon Ball, we gave out a special coupon with Blessing of W, an item many of our Adventurers have been waiting for the return of.

We promised that day we will hand out a Blessing of W coupon again when Woosa releases!
Please take this special coupon, and we ask again for your love and support towards the new class Woosa.

🦋 Special Gift 🎫


[Blessing of W] x3
[Black Pearl x1000 Chest] x3


We hope your adventures in Black Desert Mobile are filled with new and exciting experiences with the addition of Maegu and Woosa, our finally reunited first-ever twin classes.

We will continue to provide more enjoyable experiences for our Adventurers.
Thank you.

Developer Commentary:

These Sausan soldiers once called themselves the lords of Mediah.
To honor the will of their former commander Shultz, who met an untimely demise, they named themselves the Shultz Guards and set their base camp in North Mediah.

Recently there were several reports of strange movements within the Shultz Guards.
They are allegedly hatching a sinister plan against the entirety of Mediah.
Not having forgotten the Shultz Guards' past attempts to unify with Altinova, the residents of Mediah fell in shock upon hearing this dire news.
Those who are familiar with the Shultz Guards' mercilessness immediately began packing their belongings to leave Mediah.

After assessing the Shultz Guards' potential threat to lands even well beyond Mediah, Neruda Shen of Altinova urgently requested the help of Adventurers from all across the continent to stop the Shultz Guards here and now.

Under his request, you prepare for a heated battle against the Shultz Guards to investigate and put an end to the plans they've plotted within their fort.

What is the true purpose behind the Shultz Guards' bizarre plan, and how far will this seed of conflict spread?

It is time for you to join the Battle for Fort Shultz, and find the answers to these burning questions.

- The Battle for Fort Shultz event will be held for 2 weeks, with the final battle on Jan 28 (Sat).
- Battle for Fort Shultz will open on Thursday 14:00–18:00 and Saturday 12:00–15:00.
ㆍCheck your in-game mailbox for an entry pass during these times.

- Battle for Fort Shultz is PvE content where 10 Adventurers join forces to defeat the Shultz Guard Captain.
ㆍIt is available after reaching Black Spirit Lv 80 and completing the "[Family] Discover Ancient Ruins 1" quest.
ㆍReceive the entry pass from the mailbox then tap the icon on the right side of the minimap to join a party.
- You can respawn after being defeated by enemies.

- The gates of Fort Shultz are tightly locked and secured by the surrounding guard towers and soldiers.
ㆍYou will need to use siege weapons in order to break through the gates.

- Defeat the enemies near the fort to acquire elephants and cannons for the siege.
ㆍElephants and cannons cannot be additionally acquired.

- Once you destroy the gates and step into the fort, the Crazed Shultz Guard Berserker will appear.
ㆍDefeat the Crazed Shultz Guard Berserker and enemies within the fort to reveal a path to the top of the fort.

- The Shultz Guard Captain will be waiting at the top of the fort. Defeat the captain to win the battle.
ㆍThe entry pass will be spent upon winning the battle, and you will obtain rewards such as Ah'krad, Chaos Core, and Magical Essence.
ㆍThe entry pass will not be spent if you leave the Battle for Fort Shultz before winning.

- The Shahzad difficulty has been added to Great Desert Temples.
ㆍAll difficulties will be available after the update maintenance.
ㆍThe CP requirements have been set to match the Shahzad difficulty.
ㆍTemple of Ohm does not get a new difficulty option.
- Gather, Log, and Mine in the Temple of Ohm for a certain chance of obtaining Earth Crystals.
- Up to 5 Kureba Adults can appear in the Temple of Ohm based on your CP.
ㆍDefeat Kureba Adults to obtain bonus rewards equal to a certain amount from Ohm's Guardian Kurebas.
ㆍUp to 5 Ohm's Guardian Kurebas will appear based on the gathering progress within the temple. (Same as before)
- Improved to maintain progress for Temple of Ohm upon re-entry if the game crashes due to unstable server connection.
※ We've sent you rewards to make your total earnings equivalent to clearing one higher difficulty level than the difficulty of Temples cleared from Jan 1 (Sun), 00:00 to Jan 17 (Tue).

Developer Commentary:

We've consistently been preparing and making updates to support Adventurers who've just begun or are in the early stages of their adventure.

After making your way through Mediah, your goal would likely be to explore the vast desert and chaos-ridden areas of Valencia, but you might've been frustrated with the slow pace of CP progression.

The new "Trials of Ator: Ancient" content will be unlocked along with the Great Desert.
Compared to the Elite difficulty, several challenging and complicated game elements were removed to allow a more casual experience.
The rewards from this content are designed to aid Adventurers who are stuck in this CP range.

We hope this content provides a boost for Adventurers who were daunted by the Great Desert of Valencia and Chaos Rifts, and remains as a consistent source of materials for progress in the long run.

If you're one of the Adventurers who are overwhelmed by the enemies ahead, we strongly recommend the new Trials of Ator: Ancient.


Trials of Ator: Ancient

- Trials of Ator: Ancient was added.
ㆍThe Ancient difficulty features less challenging and less complicated mechanics compared to the Elite difficulty.

- The recommended CP starts from 6,000 up to 55,000. It increases by 1,000 each level, up to level 50.

 - You can obtain Trials of Ator entry passes from completing Great Desert Temples.
ㆍObtain 6 passes from clearing Great Temples, and 3 passes from clearing regular Temples, for a total of 90 passes per month.
ㆍThe amount of passes are the same across all Great Desert difficulties and Great Temple tiers.
- Upon completing Trials of Ator: Ancient, you will obtain Knowledge EXP for "Gates of Atovator" along with other rewards.
ㆍAP and DP will increase with higher Knowledge level of Gates of Atovator.
ㆍEach trial has additional first-time rewards.
ㆍThe base rewards, including Knowledge EXP, are the same across all levels.
ㆍRewards will not increase with higher difficulty levels.
