Bartering on Invernen Island and Delinghart Island was initially designed for the exchange of materials and luxury land goods. However, to better reflect the current state of Black Desert, we have decided to update the items available at these locations. We made Verdant Black Stones more accessible for Adventurers starting their ocean voyage, and adjusted bartering options for veteran sailors to make it easier to obtain higher grade enhancement materials as well as Crow Coins.
● The following items can now be exchanged when you refresh barter on Invernen Island and Delinghard Island.
– Invernen Island: Changed 20 Trade Goods. Brilliant Rock Salt Ingot and Brilliant Pearl Shard can still be exchanged.
– Delinghart Island: Changed 40 Trade Goods.
|Removed Items from the Exchange list|
|Landscape Painting of Foggy Serendia|
Landscape Painting of a Tree
Landscape Painting of Demi River
Velia Watchtower and Cron Castle Landscape
[Lv 4] Panacea
|[Lv 1] Trade Goods x1 > Exchange Verdant Black Stone x1|
[Lv 2] Trade Goods x1 > Exchange Verdant Black Stone x2Accumulated Barter Count – Over 3,000 (additional goods available for exchange)
[Lv 3] Trade Goods x1 > Exchange Fiery Black Stone x1-2
[Lv 3] Trade Goods x1 > Exchange Frosted Black Stone x1-2Accumulated Barter Count – Over 10,000 (additional goods available for exchange)

* Example) Even if the accumulated Barter Count is over 10,000, it won’t guarantee that the option of exchanging for Crow Coins will appear even after the Barter list has refreshed. Verdant Black Stones or Fiery Black Stones will appear according to a set probability.

New and Improvements
● Improved the walking animation for all classes to appear more natural.
* You can walk by pressing Caps Lock or Scroll Lock.
● Prime: Crow Flare
– Expanded the period in which you could obtain the Casting Speed buff during the skill.
We improved Succession Maehwa to better utilize her Stamina and the Red Blade.
Her previous iteration of the Red Blade was tied to using Prime: Decapitation, which made it difficult to activate the Red Blade at will. Now, when you now use Maehwa’s Will with 2 Red Petals, you will gain an additional Red Petal, making it easier to activate the Red Blade. Blind Slash will now also spend WP instead of Stamina, which we felt would better benefit her combat prowess.
Lastly, while Maehwa: Ascension to Heaven did improve the cast time of Prime: Red Moon, we felt it somewhat lacking, especially since you couldn’t combo into other skills until Prime: Red Moon’s attack had ended. Now if you have learned Maehwa: Ascension to Heaven, you can now combo into Whirlwind Cut, Decapitation, and Prime: Petal Swirl during Prime: Red Moon, adding the option of quickly comboing into other skills after applying the skill’s Floating debuff.
Awakening Maehwa was improved to deal critical damage at crucial moments, with a focus on the Petal Swirl skill. The skill’s innate Accuracy buff has been reduced, but now using the skill will grant All Accuracy +15% for 10 seconds, thus making it a better skill to compliment others. (The Movement/Attack Speed and Evasion reduction debuffs have also been removed, accordingly.) To make sure these changes would further complement other skills, we reduced the cooldown times of Moonrise, Flow: Cloud Stab, and Flow: Moonlight Dash, while also adding a Critical Hit Rate +25% buff (PvP only) to Flow: Frostflower. Finally, we changed Absolute: Red Moon so you can now use the skill with your awakening weapon, and its visual effects have been changed accordingly.
● Blind Slash
– Changed the consumed resource: 100 Stamina → 20 to 50 WP (based on skill level)
● Maehwa’s Will
– Added a skill effect: If used with 2 Red Petals, gain 1 Red Petal
● Prime: Red Moon
– Improved combo: Now combos into Whirlwind Cut
● Maehwa: Ascension to Heaven
– Improved combo: Learning the skill now lets you combo into Whirlwind Cut, Decapitation, and Prime: Sticky Snowflake from Prime: Red Moon
– Fixed the issue where Prime: Red Moon’s last attack damage was not being applied upon learning the skill.
● Full Moon Wall
– Added a skill use effect: All DP +20 for 10 sec
● Ice Fang
– Removed a skill use effect: All DP +20 for 10 sec
– Added a skill hit effect: Movement, Casting, and Attack Speeds -20% for 10 sec
● Sticky Snowflake

– Changed the accuracy buff: +50% → +20%
– Added a skill use effect: All Accuracy +15% for 10 sec
– Removed a skill hit effect: Movement and Attack Speeds -20% for 10 sec
– Removed a skill hit effect: Evasion Rate -3% for 10 sec
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction: 54% / 54% / 42.5% / 42.5% → 30%
– Added a skill hit effect: All Evasion Rate -9% for 10 sec
– (IV) Changed the cooldown: 9 sec → 8 sec
● Flow: Cloud Stab
– Changed the cooldown: 9 sec → 8 sec
● Flow: Moonlight Dash
– Changed the cooldown: 9 sec → 7 sec
– Changed the skill hit effect: All DP -20 for 10 sec → All DP -30 for 10 sec
● Flow: Frostflower

● Petal Bloom
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction: 59.3% → 50%
● Changed the following Maehwa class skill names:
– Sticky Snowflake to Petal Swirl.
– Prime: Sticky Snowflake to Prime: Petal Swirl.
– New Year’s Eve to Coldsnap.
– Reverse Scale to Moonbreak.
– Stigma to Frostfeint.
– General Apricot to General’s Might.
● Absolute: Red Moon
– Changed to be usable with your kerispear.
● Alert Stance
– Changed skill’s activate forward.
* RMB after Prime: Smokescreen, Prime: Evasive Shuriken Malice → RMB or W+RMB after Prime: Smokescreen, Prime: Evasive Shuriken Malice
● Prime: Fatal Blow
– Fixed the part in which activate forward wan’t working when pressing W+LMB+RMB in certain situations.
● Sea Burial
– Fixed the issue where the damage didn’t match the description when used while consuming Martial Spirit Shards.
● Black Spirit: Sea Burial
– Fixed the issue where the damage was abnormally low.
– Fixed the issue where the Sea Dragon attack damage wasn’t being applied.
Righteous Smite’s cast time and projectile speed were deliberately made slow due to its potential to inflict a large amount of damage with your greatbow. Therefore, we decided to further bolster that potential by increasing its damage in PvP. Marked Bloom was a skill without any defensive or debuff effects, so we decided to strengthen its concept as a powerful skill by adjusting the number of targets hit by it. Lastly, for Luthraghon’s Call, we felt many Archers were left somewhat exposed once the Forward Guard effect while charging would end. Now Archers can cast this skill in peace, knowing that the Forward Guard effect will last even after you finish charging the skill.
● Righteous Smite
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction: 45% → 34%
● Marked Bloom
– Changed the reduced number of targets for PvP: -3 targets → -1 target
● Luthraghon’s Call
– Changed the Forward Guard effect: Forward Guard while charging → Forward Guard even after charging is complete
Succession Sage is known to have an arsenal of skills with long cast times that inflict damage over a large area and apply debuffs such as DP and Evasion reduction on hits. However, such long cast times were being punished particularly in PvP. Thus, to increase the lethality of his skill hits, we increased his PvP damage for major skills such as Prime: Ator’s Mark, Prime: Spatial Collapse, and Prime: Ator’s Energy, as well as improving the efficiency of using Prime: Spatial Collapse, Prime: Ator’s Mark, and Void Gateways with Rift Chain. Lastly, we added a visual effect to disguise the actual trajectory of the Sage when using Rift Chain, making it more difficult to predict his movements.
Awakening Sage saw a similar change regarding his attack damage. Firstly, when comboing from Divine Executioner into Flow: Judgment, the previous version had the spear bolt attack thrown midair, smash attack, and the following spear bolt attack damage all around the same figures. We decided to bolster these numbers by increasing the number of targets hit by the 2nd (smash) attack, while still retaining the number of targets hit at the moment of the smash attack’s initial contact, thus greatly increasing the lethal potential of this skill. In addition, for Lightning Prison, we decided to greatly increase its PvP damage to make it regarded as a powerful skill on its own. (However, do note that we felt the Critical Hit Rate +100% buff was excessive to restore.) Lastly, Spear Bolt previously only activated faster when used after Shock Relay, but it’s now been improved to activate instantly after certain skills without any defensive effects, which we hope will grant a variety of new opening moves for our Sage Adventurers.
● Prime: Form Shift
– Fixed the motion to appear more natural when comboing into Rift Chain in the same direction as the skill.
● Void Gateways, Prime: Void Gateways
– Increased the activation speed when attacking by comboing with Rift Chain.
● Prime: Ator’s Mark
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction: 45% → 34%
● Prime: Spatial Collapse
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction: 55% → 44%
● Prime: Ator’s Energy
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction. 45% → 34%
● Rift Chain
– Improved the period during the skill where it is possible to combo into Prime: Spatial Collapse or Prime: Ator’s Mark.
● Prime: Rift Chain
– Improved to display an illusion moving in the opposite direction when using the skill.
● Lightning Prison
– Changed the PvP Damage Reduction: 50% → 37%
● Flow: Judgment
– Changed the number of hits for attack 1, 2, and last attacks.
* Attack 1: Applies Divine Executioner skill damage x 4 → Applies Divine Executioner skill damage x 2
* Attack 2: Applies Divine Executioner skill damage x 3 → Applies Divine Executioner skill damage x 7
* Last Attack: Applies Divine Executioner skill damage x 3 → Applies Divine Executioner skill damage x 1
● Spear Bolt
– Increased the combo speed from Chain Lightning and Lightning Surge.
A wave of changes is coming in for Corsair in this week’s update.
First off, the Succession mermaid skills previously had their defensive effect adjusted. In this update, additional changes were made for better adaptability in PvP situations.
Prime: Whirling Slash defensive effect was changed from “Super Armor while moving” to “Invincible -> Super Armor while moving” and Prime: Storming Gale was given the “Forward Guard during the skill” effect. We believe these changes will make her Succession combat a lot more flexible than before. Furthermore, the combo Prime: Wipe Out > Overflow was improved and the distance traveled with Prime: Mareca: Sea Stroll was increased to improve its approach capabilities.
As for her Awakening, we added a new skill called Tide-splitter Patraca. This skill was designed to be used when she is in need of a quick defense, so it has the effect “Invincible at the start of the skill.” It can then be comboed into Ocean Melancholy immediately after for additional protection.
Additionally, the Super Armor on Pirate’s Life For Me was moved to Flow: Earth-render Patraca to improve ranged attacks. However, the damage of Pirate’s Life For Me was increased to improve it in PvE.
● Prime: Whirling Slash
– Changed the defensive effect: “Super Armor while moving” to “Invincible -> Super Armor while moving”
● Prime: Mareca: Sea Stroll
– Increased the distance traveled.
– Adjusted the max number of hits.

Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone) and Basilisk Den, monster zones that are not affected by Item Drop Rate buffs, were included in the treasure item drop event. Generally, Adventurers would use Item Drop Rate buffs to increase their chances in monster zones with treasure items, however, Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone) and Basilisk Den were included as additional monster zones for Adventurers to go to.
During this event, the same treasure item was added to Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone) as the one available in Crescent Shrine, while the Basilisk Den got the same one available in the Waragon Nest.
In the future, we plan to exclude Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone) and Basilisk Den from treasure item drop events.
