Dev Note: Season Servers

17 June 2020 08:00

 

The Season Servers are now open!

 

Only Season Characters can enter the Season Servers, and only one Season Character can be created per Family.

 

Unlike the regular servers, the Season Servers constantly provide Combat EXP +100% and Skill EXP +20% buffs, which will allow your Season Characters to level up more quickly.

 

Here are two key aspects about the Season Servers.

 

1. There is no forced PvP currently available in the Season Servers. The only PvP feature available is through guild wars. However, Season Arsha Server, a server that will allow players to engage in forced PvP, will be available within a month after Season Servers are opened.

 

2. The World Boss HP is shared with the other regular servers, so you can still defeat the World Bosses from the Season Servers as well.

 

And for details, please read on below!

 

Fughar, the Friend of All Season Characters

Fughar's 40 Daily Quests (Season Quests)

Season Quests are daily quests, which can be received daily from NPC Fughar located next to the Stable Keepers in each town.

These daily quests involve various tasks such as gathering, using specific items, and obtaining knowledge.

When you have completed all 40 daily quests, you will notice how much more prepared you are for the Black Desert world compared to when you first started.

 

  • Reward for completing Fughar's 40 Daily Quests: PEN (V) Capotia Accessory

 

 

The PEN (V) Capotia accessories are roughly equivalent to the TET (IV) yellow grade accessories for regular characters, so we absolutely recommend that you complete all 40 daily quests.

 

Gear Enhancement Aid

You can obtain items which increase your chances for successfully enhancing your gear. All you have to do is talk to Fughar after equipping TRI (III) or TET (IV) grade Tuvala gear, or complete Fughar's daily quests.

 

Enhancement Level

Amount Equipped

Rewards

TRI (III)

Advice of Valks (+40) x7

TET (IV)

7

Advice of Valks (+60) x7

  • The Advice of Valks is only available to collect while the Season Server is open, so make sure you collect it from Fughar before the season ends!

Weapon and defense gear are enhanced in order of +1 through +15, PRI (I), DUO (II), TRI (III), TET (IV), and PEN (V) enhancement levels. PEN (V) is the highest enhancement level available.

Accessories are enhanced in order of PRI (I), DUO (II), TRI (III), TET (IV), and PEN (V) enhancement levels.

When you fail an enhancement for weapon or defense gear at DUO (II) or higher, the enhancement level will decrease.

However, failures to enhance accessories will result in the accessories being destroyed regardless of enhancement level.

 

Plenty of Skill EXP Support

After completing main quests for Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, and Mediah, go to Fughar.

You can get the "[Season] Secret Book of the Misty Breeze" as a reward. When you use this item, you can get plenty of Skill EXP. That means you can learn new skills, or make your current skills stronger.

 

Having a Hard Time Figuring out What to Do? Just Do Some Main Quests!

If you are uncertain on what you should do during your adventures in Black Desert, we recommend that you complete the main quests of each area with the Black Spirit!

By completing main quests, you can obtain Contribution Points and Knowledge which are helpful for your adventures. You can also gain a lot of Skill EXP!

Simply open up the Quest List (O) window, and go to the "Main Quest" tab to view the main quests. Don't forget, you can get the [Season] Secret Book of the Misty Breeze as a reward from Fughar by completing main quests from Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, and Mediah.

Another reminder: you can get plenty of Skill EXP when you use the [Season] Secret Book of the Misty Breeze. Don't miss out!

Q&A

 

Q. Can I receive the PEN (V) Capotia Accessory even if I delete my character after the 40th day Fughar daily quest?

A. Yes, you can receive the PEN (V) Capotia Accessory even if you delete your character after completing the Fughar quest.

However, please note that the 40th day Fughar daily quest can only be done once per family, thus the PEN (V) Capotia Accessory is only given once per family as well.

 

Q. The 40 daily Fughar quests sounds like something difficult to complete.

A. Don’t worry! Fughar’s quests cover the fundamentals in learning to play Black Desert, so they are not as daunting as it sounds!

 

Q. Will the Tuvala gear changed to family-bound gear be sent as a box after the season ends? Or will the obtained gear just be changed to family-bound?

A. When the season ends, the highest grade gear of any duplicate gear will be changed to family-bound and any other gear will be deleted.

If you have more than 2 of the same gear at the same grade in your family, only class specific gear on characters remaining at the end of the season will be bound.

For example, If you have a TET (IV) and TRI (III) Tuvala Helmet, the TRI (III) Tuvala Helmet will be deleted and the TET (IV) Tuvala Helmet will be changed to family-bound.

However, Rings and Earrings will have 2 each be changed to family-bound.

Also, Tuvala weapons will remain the same as the one your character used.

 

[Updated August 7]

As graduation specs have been updated and since the early graduation period is currently ongoing from August 5 to August 26 (before maintenance), learn about the updated graduation details  <Here>.

Please note that materials for treasure items are all available as well.

So, season server is a great chance for you to level a new character and collect materials!

 

Q. Can season characters login to normal servers?

A. Yes, season characters can login to both season and normal servers.

However, normal characters cannot login to the season server.

A. No, they cannot be registered on the Central Market.

In other words, you can use them when leveling a new character.

 

Q. Can season-specific enhancement materials (Time-filled Black Stone, Refined Magical Black Stone) be used in the next season if I keep them?

A. No, they can only be used in the season you obtained them and will be deleted before the next season server is opened.

 

Q. Do you have to do the 40 daily quests from Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager Fughar every single day for 40 days? What happens if I miss a day?

As mentioned before, if you complete the first quest of the 40 daily quests from Fughar, you can complete them with your season character even when the season ends.

Please note that you receive season enhancement materials, such as Time-filled Black Stones, from the quests, but won’t be able to use them since Tuvala gear cannot be enhanced after the season server ends. So please feel free to sell them at shops if you have any remaining after the season ends!

A. Yes, season characters can participate as party members in monster zones such as Mirumok and Gyfin.
