Black Desert Online Patch Notes: Oct. 6 Update

Here are the official patch notes for Black Desert Online Oct. 6 Update:

SYCRAKEA

● Atoraxxion – Sycrakea, the Last Stronghold built to fend off the dark invaders, has been discovered.
– Atoraxxion’s second biome Sycrakea has separate difficulty settings akin to Vahmalkea on normal and Elvia Realm settings. How to Enter Sycrakea

– You can enter Sycrakea regardless of whether you’ve cleared Atoraxxion: Vahmalkea as long as you are in possession of Talibre’s Tear x1.
* However, you must’ve also completed the “[Atoraxxion] Talibre’s Tear” quest so that you can interact with the Sol Magia inside the Ancient Stone Chamber. 

– You can enter through Elribta’s Door located in Vaha’s Garden of Vahmalkea, Atoraxxion’s first biome.
– You can enter Vahmalkea through Elribta’s Door located in Syca’s Garden in Sycrakea.  Sycrakea Main Questline & Syca’s Thread ● Added the new Sycrakea main questline and knowledge category for Syca, the second person of interest in Atoraxxion.
– Complete the Sycrakea main questline to learn more about Syca’s story and the hidden side of Atoraxxion, the “Stronghold of Salvation.”
– Syca’s story is directly connected to Vaha’s and will be immediately available upon completing the Vahmalkea main questline.
* You can still reach Syca’s Cradle, the area of Sycrakea’s final boss, without having completed the main questline.

 ● Throughout Atoraxxion: Sycrakea, you’ll find Syca’s Threads placed by Syca himself as security measures to ward off the Dark Invaders. Unraveling these threads will either allow you to temporarily control the environmental factors of an area or let you learn a new bit of knowledge.
– You can experience five threads through the main questline alone, and an additional two separately.
– However, in order to reach Syca’s Cradle where the last ancient weapon lies, you must unravel “Syca’s Thread – Blank.”

 – Syca’s Throat, the path on the way to Syca’s Cradle, is blocked by rays of light that mean certain death for any adventurer that comes in contact with them as shown in the image below.

 – However, when you unravel the thread, the rays of light blocking Syca’s Throat will disappear, thus allowing you to move safely inside. Someone from the inside can also use a device to open it up again.  Areas of Sycrakea ● Atoraxxion: Sycrakea is divided into multiple areas by the “Darkened Dawn” (a type of wall) to fend off the Dark Invaders more effectively.
– Each of these areas are blocked off from each other through an ancient piece of tech called “Sol Magia.” To take control of the “Sol Magia,” you will need special items that act as keys.
– The Sol Magia that used to control the Darkened Dawn of Syca’s Scale has long been in disrepair, so there are no Darkened Dawn in Syca’s Scale.

● The details of each area in Syca are as follows:

AreaDetails
Syca’s ScaleSteam that rises up from gaps in the unstable surface can cause devastating burns due to the extreme heat. Lure the cold-insulating Ancient Weapons onto these parts to temporarily cool them down, but be careful not to lower the temperature to extreme levels.
Syca’s GraveStellagia that were installed to serve as filtration devices soon became contaminated by the poisons emitted by the deep-sea coral in the vicinity. Worker weapons known as “Mala” that used to collect power also were tainted by the poison, which led them to collect even more poisons that would eventually impact all of Syca’s Grave.
Syca’s GlareTo enter Syca’s Glare, you will need to loot the keys off the ancient weapon bosses Berurah and Serpen in order to pass through the Darkened Dawn. Upon entering Syca’s Glare, the enormous Apocros who reigns the skies will appear.
Syca’s GardenThis is the last area where you can get ready before entering Syca’s Cradle where the final boss slumbers.
Syca’s CradleThe area to make your stand against Syca’s Last Ancient Weapon, Maleficent Centilutos. Maleficent Centilutos will charge the Rune Magia to cast and unleash merciless attacks upon all the dark invaders.

* You cannot resurrect until all other party members are killed while fighting in Syca’s Cradle.* All items except for the Corrupt Yolun Dagger and loot dropped from defeating the final boss will be removed once you leave Syca’s Paradise which you can access after defeating in Syca’s Cradle.* Penalties for dying in Atoraxxion are as follows:

 Normal ServerElvia Realm Server
Field (of each server’s Atoraxxion)No penaltyPenalty applied
Final Boss Fight (in Syca’s Cradle)No penaltyNo penalty

Maleficent Centilutos

 ● The final boss slumbers in Syca’s Cradle, the last area of Sycrakea. To defeat the boss, you will need to utilize the power supply devices installed around the area.
– The power supply devices in Syca’s Cradle are divided into 4 levels. The higher the level, the lower the Centilutos’ defense but greater its offense, You will need to properly utilize these devices to defeat the weapon. 

Syca’s Paradise ● You can obtain “special loot” from Syca’s Paradise, which you gain entry to upon defeating Sycrakea’s Last Ancient Weapon , twice a week.
– You can obtain such “special loot” from the following quests available via “Syca’s Time Capsule” found in Syca’s Paradise.
* Unlike Vahmalkea, you can complete the weekly quest for Sycrakea as long as you have the “Key of the Sunken Dawn” looted from the defeated .

 Black Desert’s second co-op dungeon after Vahmalkea, “Atoraxxion: Sycrakea,” is finally unveiled. Unlike “Vahmalkea,” Atoraxxion’s first biome, Adventurers will be able to encounter the bosses guarding each area of Sycrakea. Each boss has its own unique pattern that will test your mettle, and you will encounter more of those “thread” puzzles signature to Atoraxxion, along the way. Sycrakea holds a total of seven delightful threads, five of which you shall run into while completing the main questline. Do note that one of those five threads is required to move onto the next area. Once you defeat the bosses and unravel the threads, you will ultimately make your way to Syca’s Cradle, where you will find “Maleficent Centilutos.” The core mechanic of Maleficent Centilutos lies in “electrical currents.” This is directly connected to the “power supply devices” located all over Syca’s Cradle, as you can control the amount of electrical power that is supplied to Maleficent Centilutos, which will determine just how much safer and easier your encounter will be. Also, you will need to work together with your party members especially depending on the state of Maleficent Centilutos. We designed Sycrakea to be slightly more difficult compared to Vahmalkea, and we can guarantee that those Adventurers who dare take their chances on the Elvia Realm difficulty will suffer many deaths (and be penalized for it) even before reaching Syca’s Cradle. Thus we highly recommend you uncover the weaknesses behind Sycrakea’s Ancient Weapons on the normal servers where no death penalty is applied.

Florchestra

● The instruments of Florchestra, the maestro of a famous wandering musician named Artina who brought out the musical talent of Shais, have been revealed to the world. New “Florchestra” instruments that bring out the talent of Shais have been added. There are a total of 7 Florchestra instruments, and out of the 7, 5 are upgraded versions of the old beginner instruments while 2 are completely new instruments that were not part of the beginner instruments.

Florchestra instruments boast a more exquisite exterior than the old beginner instruments, and their sounds can be modulated through a processor called an Effector. Also, the musical technique differs for each type of instrument. A musical technique refers to the many different ways of playing music and the Effector is a music processor that modulates the sounds of instruments to be more extravagant. You can use a fuller sounding and more beautiful music than with the old beginner instruments by using these two tools to its full extent.

These new instruments were crafted to bring out the talent of skillful Shai Adventurers who enjoy Black Desert’s instrumental performance system. Do all these terms seem like Ancient jibberish to you? Take a gander at [Florchestra Lessons with Artina] made for beginner musicians like yourself!

Florchestra Drum SetFlorchestra Harp
Florchestra PianoFlorchestra Violin
Florchestra Handpan 

– Florchestra instruments boast a more exquisite design and richer timbre than the old beginner instruments, and their sounds can be modulated through a processor called an Effector. Also, the musical technique differs for each type of instrument.
● Added a Florchestra Instruments category on the Compose window. You can set the Effector and musical technique when you select a Florchestra instrument.
– You can adjust settings for the Effector from the upper left of the Compose window.
– The Effector has 5 types of effects. 

EffectsDescription
Reverb TimeProvides a sense of space by adding reverberation.
Delay FeedBackAdjusts the number of echoes.
Chorus FeedBackAdjusts the Effector’s amount of repeated sounds.
Chorus LFO DepthAdjusts the Effector’s modulation depth.
Chorus LFO FrequencyAdjusts the Effector’s modulation frequency.

– You can adjust the amount of sounds transferred from your instrument to the Effector by using AuxSend from the Florchestra Instruments category. When it lights up, it means that the sounds are being transferred to the Effector. 

 – The settings for the Effector affects the entire song.
– You can adjust the settings for the musical technique on the upper right of the Compose window. Musical techniques refer to ways of playing music, and they differ for each different type of instrument. 

 – You can see the default musical technique on the uppermost part of the screen.
– You can see that notes of the same color as the selected color on the musical technique selection window will appear when you enter a note after changing musical techniques.
– You cannot enter many different musical techniques for the same beat. Also, the last musical technique you selected will be applied to all.
● Changed the Music Album window to categorize beginner instruments and Florchestra instruments differently.
– Select the Florchestra category and press the button for playing to use a Florchestra instrument to play solo or in an ensemble.

● Florchestra’s apprentice, Artina, found the blueprints for Florchestra’s instruments in the seventh home she left behind, letting the world know how of the method to craft these instruments.
– According to what’s written on the blueprints, there is a tree called the Tree of Seven Sounds, which is invisible to regular people and is said to be the source of all sounds. They say the blessing of young spirits who guarded the Tree of Seven Sounds is necessary to craft a special instrument that can tug at one’s heartstrings.The method to obtain these newly released Florchestra instruments with their brilliant tones, musical techniques, and Effector, is different from beginner instruments that you can get directly from a shop with Silver. You can slowly obtain the upgraded versions of the beginner instruments over 10 days via daily quests. Since you cannot complete the daily quests for each instrument simultaneously, you should carefully decide on which instrument you want to obtain first. However, for the new types of instruments that weren’t part of the beginner instruments, the drum set and the handpan, you can craft both instruments in a single day by following each of their weekly quests (though not simultaneously). In this case, don’t forget that you need to co-op and play ensembles with other Shai Adventurers! Although they’re more difficult to obtain these than the beginner instruments, Florchestra instruments crafted from memories gained by going on concert tours in different territories with other Shai Adventurers will hold great meaning.● You can craft Florchestra’s instruments through Processing(L) using the blessing of young spirits obtained through quests.

New and Improvements

MusaBlack Spirit: Projection
ValkyrieWave of Light
MysticDragon’s Rip
ShaiOver Here!

NovaWinter Testudo
Star’s Ring
SageIllusion Compression

 Selecting the “Remove others effects” option would make it difficult to see the effects of skills important in PvP. With this update, the function was improved so that you can still see the effects of such important skills.● Fixed the issue where your character would move abnormally after being attacked with debuff effects while dismounting.
● Fixed the issue where summoned minions would sometimes not disappear if they attacked a Wooden Fence after being summoned inside the fence.

 

● Halo – Fixed the issue where the skill’s sound effects were inaudible when using Moon Storm after using the skill.

 

● Purging Shot – Fixed the issue where damage would not be inflicted when the skill’s current level was lower than that of Volant Kick.

 

Item

● Separated [Sage] Exclatus Gloves and [Sage] Exclatus Shoes from [Sage] Exclatus Armor.
– Added [Sage] Exclatus Gloves and [Sage] Exclatus Shoes to outfit boxes that contain [Sage] Exclatus Armor.

– Adventurers who had the [Dark Knight] Checkmate Armor in their possession will find [Dark Knight] Checkmate Gloves and [Dark Knight] Checkmate Shoes in their storage in Heidel.
● Changed the Black Energy Residue loot to be obtainable only via defeating monsters in Drieghan.
– Increased the item drop rate of “Black Energy Residue” item dropped by monsters in Drieghan. The Black Energy Residue was a very important item when the Drieghan update was released. However, it has gradually become less important over time. In particular, since this item dropped in all regions, it caused confusion for those of you who didn’t know where to use it. That’s why we changed it so it won’t drop from all regions and made adjustments so you have a higher chance at obtaining it in Drieghan, which is the base.● Changed the items you can obtain in the Mediah and Valencia regions.
– The areas of each region where adjustments were made are as follows.

MediahShultz Guard
ValenciaBashim Base, Basilisk Den, Cadry Ruins, Taphtar Plain, Waragon Nest, Titium Valley, Desert Naga Temple, Gahaz Bandit’s Lair

– Improved the gear loot you can obtain by defeating monsters in the aformentioned monster zones of the two regions to box items.

* The boxes in the chart above are stackable in a single slot of your inventory.
* Open the box to obtain one class item according to a set probability.
* You can only obtain gear that has not been enhanced when opening the boxes above.
– Added a Black Stone Bundle to loot you can obtain.

Black Stone (Weapon) Bundle
You’ll obtain Black Stone (Weapon) x25-50 according to a set probability.

Black Stone (Armor) Bundle
You’ll obtain Black Stone (Armor) x25-50 according to a set probability.

As promised, we improved the gear item drops of the Valencia region by changing them to box items. We hope this will lessen the burden of not having enough slots in your inventory when defeating monsters in particular monster zones of Valencia.● Combined the monster zones that had duplicate lists of items displayed on the Item Drop list to be displayed as one. ▲(Left side) Before/ (Right side) After

● The Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia regions have had their items simplified and the Item Drop list has been modified to reflect these changes.
– You can check the Item Drop list by going to ESC (New) menu -> Adventure -> Item Drop.
● Changed so that you cannot obtain the “Ancient” tagline, have the creator’s name branded, or obtain a special title when you craft a Ornette’s/Odore’s Spirit Essence.
– Items with the “Ancient” tagline will still drop as items you obtain from defeating monsters even after maintenance on Oct 6, 2021 (Wed).
* Although you can craft an Ornette’s Spirit Essence or Odore’s Spirit Essence with items that have the “Ancient” tagline, you cannot add the “Ancient” tagline in front of the item name.
– However, for Ornette’s Spirit Essence or Odore’s Spirit Essence crafted with items that have the “Ancient” tagline before maintenance on Oct 6, 2021, you can add the “Ancient” tagline, obtain a special title, and have your family name branded to the item after using a “Dawnwish Petal” or a “Duskwish Petal.”
– The Ancient Blessed Spirit Essence and the Ancient Greater Blessed Spirit Essence can be crafted from ingredients with the “Ancient” tagline.
● Added “Cannot be registered to the Central Market” text to the following pet’s item descriptions:

Monster

● Changed liberated Kagtum Prisoners in Blood Wolf Settlement to no longer attack summoned minions.
● Changed the boss that you can encounter during a main quest in the Drieghan region to be summoned by Interacting with the Dark Portal.
● Changed and deleted the locations of certain monsters that appear at the Orc Camp in the Elvia Realm Server. The route for defeating monsters in the Orc Camp of the Elvia Realm Server is usually centered on Red Orc Wizards from which you can obtain the Seed of Void. However, you could defeat extremely Red Orc Wizards in certain areas when having obtained a spirit’s weapon. This is why we adjusted the locations of some monsters of the Orc Camp for certain areas.

 

Quest, Knowledge

● Added the “[Daily] Old Moon Guild Subjugation Request – Atoraxxion” quest which you can accept from Jetina. You can now defeat Sycrakea’s Centilutos instead of just completing Vahmalkea to finish the quest.

● Added guild (alliance) ranks and points to display via the Conquest Status window.
– Guild (Alliance) rankings and points are displayed once either there are no more defensive guilds or from the moment a defensive guild is destroyed.
Also, rewards will be issued as long as there are two or more guilds/alliances remaining by the end of the Node/Conquest War based on ranking determined from the point there are no defensive guilds/alliances remaining, just as before.
