Developer Commentary:

Igneous, the embodiment of nature's strength, has appeared in Black Desert Mobile.

Igneous uses the elemental powers from Marg, the Fire Guardian, and Arne, the Water Guardian, to trap his foes with water and strike them down with blazing flames over their heads. His devastating elemental magic makes him most effective in battles against multiple enemies.

Minimum Damage

Developer Commentary:

In Black Desert Mobile, there is a system that guarantees a minimum amount of damage even when attacking Adventurers with far higher DP than your AP.

The system was implemented to encourage Adventurers of relatively low CP to challenge Adventurers of higher CP, who usually have an advantage over them.

Although the system supports Adventurers with lower CP by allowing them to deal meaningful damage despite the significant difference in CP, it can be discouraging for Adventurers with high CP because they will take the same minimum damage regardless of how high their CP is.

While the current system is advantageous for fighting against those with higher CP, it may negatively affect your experience when fighting against those with lower CP, and this can make CP progression feel meaningless.

The increase in CP as our Adventurers progress is one of the major sources of enjoyment in the game, which is why we try to provide as many ways for our Adventurers to increase their CP as we can, while making that progress as visible as possible.

Providing a variety of ways to increase CP and enjoyable factors along the way are important, but we also think that hard work must be rewarded with satisfying results.

On that note, we decided to adjust the system so that the minimum damage decreases as the gap between AP and DP increases.

- Adjusted the minimum damage to gradually decrease when the opponent’s AP is lower than your DP.

Before When: Enemy AP < Your DP
- A fixed damage floor is applied to enemy attacks against you
After When: Enemy AP < Your DP
- Damage floor changes based on CP difference
ㆍDamage gradually decreases with higher CP difference, up to 12,500
ㆍMinimum damage applied when CP difference is 12,500 or more (40% compared to before) 

- This applies to Normal areas (during Guild Wars), Outlaw Zones, Black Sun, Node Wars, Siege Wars, and Twisted Nightmare.

- Improved enemies in the Temple of Ohm to not get stuck on objects such as trees and resources for Gathering.

- Removed items that you cannot actually obtain from the list of obtainable items for the Temple of Shayla.

ㆍAdded a notification to display when tapping on a target whose information is unavailable.
