Featured Updates


Developer Commentary:

Awakened Hashashin, or Zayed, after having overcome his trials and receiving the true blessing of Aal, has made his appearance in Black Desert Mobile.

Blessed with the power of Aal, the God of Sun, Zayed wields the enormous Dual Glaives as if they were light as a feather and unleashes a flurry of unavoidable attacks, pushing his enemies to the brink.

He claimed authority over the sands by conquering Hadum's shadow in the form of a serpent, allowing him to create sand serpents which he unleashes in the battlefield to overwhelm his foes and make them quiver in fear.

“Harken, as this sand serpent shall devour the world!”

Developer Commentary:

Baby Fairy, born from a flower blossom, has had many journeys with our Adventurers and has now reached a higher grade.

Max traits are set for Iridescent and Resplendent grades, and once the trait reaches the max limit, excess points may feel like a waste.

With that in mind, we've improved more Twinkle to be obtainable instead of trait points if your fairy reaches a certain trait total for Radiant and Iridescent grades, so that you can more quickly attempt Blossom.


Fairy Grade Requirements for Additional Dialog Choice
Radiant Trait Point Total 1,710+
Iridescent Trait Point Total 2,280+

- Added choices for Fairy Talk and Fairy Wish from which you can obtain only Twinkle that are available when your fairy reaches a certain trait total and grade.
ㆍOne for Fairy Talk and two for Fairy Wish were added.
- Added choices from which you can obtain only Twinkle with your Depressed Baby Fairy that are available when she reaches a certain trait total and fairy grade.
ㆍYou can obtain 250 Twinkle from the above choice.
- Added Twinkle to the previewed changes on [Fairy Talk] choices.

- Added previews to [Fairy Wish] choices that display the amount of trait points and Twinkle you can obtain.
- Changed the daily Fairy Adventure limit to be spent when you begin Fairy Adventure instead of when you collect the rewards.
ㆍIf you cancel an adventure, the Fairy Adventure limit will be restored. However, the Curiosity spent will not be restored.
ㆍIf your fairy has already been sent on an adventure or has completed an adventure during maintenance, the Fairy Adventure limit will not reset.


- Removed the Weekly Tasks "Win in Ranked Arena x3," "Win in the Ramoness Arena x1," and "Win in the Battlefield of the Sun x1."
- Changed the rewards from each of the above Weekly Tasks to be obtainable from their respective content.

ㆍRewards will be automatically collected from the results screen upon winning a match of Battlefield of the Sun.
ㆍObtain a [Victory Over Battle Chest] that contains Sun Crystal x3 and Medal of Honor x10.

- Rewards were sent to your in-game mailbox if you haven't received the rewards from completing the "Win in Ranked Arena x3," "Win in the Ramoness Arena x1," and "Win in the Battlefield of the Sun x1" Weekly Tasks before maintenance, due to their removal after the update.

Developer Commentary:

Throughout your journey, you may encounter many NPCs, defeat monsters, or join battles against other Adventurers for glory and honor.

At times, you may find yourself going head-to-head with another Adventurer in battle, which means even the smallest factors in-game may affect the results.

Much of the feedback we've received from our Adventurers mentioned the actual application of Super Armor differing from the timing of the visual effect displayed in-game, and debuffs that immobilize targets hitting the wrong area.

We confirmed that the aforementioned issues may occur due to unstable network connection between the server and your device, which is why we improved server synchronization with this update.

However, not every Adventurer can play under the same network latency, so it was difficult to find a perfect solution for all the possible issues that may occur from these differences.

With that in mind, we've improved the UI to more accurately display if the guard type is being applied in real-time based on server sync in PvP content.

Guard type icons will be indicated in faint gray before its application is synced with the server, and the icon will be clearer when the guard type is properly synced.

We hope this improvement will help our Adventurers better utilize these effects with a more visible display in PvP content. We'll continue to iterate toward an optimized gameplay experience.

- Improved guard type icons to be indicated in faint gray before its application is synced with the server.
ㆍGuard type icons will be more visible when the effect is being applied properly.
- Added visual effects to the icons for when Forward Guard, Super Armor, and Invincibility have failed to guard the enemy attack due to syncing.
ㆍThe visual effects will display when the guard types are not applied properly based on sync.
ㆍThis visual effect will not appear when a properly synced guard type is countered with grab skills or skills that bypass Forward Guard.

Situation In-Game Effects
Forward Guard Failed
Super Armor Failed
Invincibility Failed

- Added hyperlinks that you can tap to move to the relevant menu for increasing CP for some of the categories under CP Breakdown.
ㆍThe hyperlinks are available for Knowledge, Gear Enhancement, Resonance, and more. This feature will be added to more categories in a future update.
- Added the effects of "Life Plus" to display on the Purified Water pop-up window.
- Improved the window displayed when accepting a Fairy Wish to not close for a brief moment even when tapping outside the window.
- Improved the Holy Vial of Light crafting screen to only use the type of Lightstone selected from the list on the right.
- Improved the next message to display after the world notification for obtaining items or successful enhancement that appears in the upper middle part of the screen.
