Wait, so the costume set that comes with the conqueror's pack doesn't give +10% exp? I was under the impression that it did :/


Also, the thing about the imp rush is unclear. Are you changing the game to be instanced/phased until the player completes the imp quest?

Trading

There are no changes compared to CBT2 settings. Same list of low-tier items remain tradeable. However, we will closely the service to see how this develops over time and adjusted to any means deemed necessary to maintain the integrity of the service.

So does this mean that costumes from the cash shop is tradable on the Auction House? They were in CBT2 iirc

3 servers makes me sad why not just open up more channels! Glad about party loot, and still not liking the trading option there will be gold sellers.

I think the 3rd server pictured is just from the test servers and not the final version.

@PM_Belsazar This is great, but you guys keep telling us to update our CBT2 client but WE CAN'T.

There is no patch currently, the client is the exact same one as for CBT2.

What do we do?

Dear Players,

It’s about time for us to make another PM Diary, don’t you think?

First of all, I would like to thank everyone so much for their support and their trust in our service, despite the little bumps in the road here and there. However, we here at Daum Europe strongly believe, that we will make our version of Black Desert Online the best it can be.

There aren’t that many different topics this time (ok maybe there is), but I’ll do my best to cover the ones that are worthy to be mentioned shortly before launch.

 

Package Holders and their benefits

• You can download the game launcher under your ACCOUNT (requires game purchase)
• You can update also your CBT2 client, as it is the same
• You can claim your items under your ACCOUNT once you have accessed the game and created a character
• Items will then be sent to your Family on the Region chosen

 

Event Rewards from CBT1,2 and Beauty&Beast Event

• You can claim your event rewards after starting 3rd of March under your ACCOUNT once you have accessed the game and created a character
• Items will then be sent to your Family on the Region chosen

CBT2 – Imp Rush

In CBTs we had some issues with the quest at the early stage where you have to kill different kind of Imps. Once the beginning area is cleared, the world opens up and users will have plenty of monsters to hunt.
Anyhow, our team is prepared for the Imp Rush!
And someone told me I couldn’t do multitasking…. Pffff. -_-

Challenge Accepted!

Server Setup

Due to the incredible growth of our player base and to secure a stable service especially during Siege War with the new Season 4 features in the near future, we had to make some amendments in our settings that could not be avoided, so please be gentle with us. J

Server Setup for Launch will be as follows
RKuMVqP.png

• Same setup above will be used at head start and additional channels will open up if server load demands it.
• Siege war will commence at a later stage when updated in the respective 1st Channel of that region
E.g. Siege War for Balenos region will be held in Balenos 1 etc.
• Depending on server load, we will add either 2 more channels for Valencia when updated or respectively reduce channel of each cluster

Speaking of clusters…

 

Chat Filter System & Channel Clusters

In the server setup picture above, you can see the yellow marked clusters. Channel chat will only be possible across those clusters. A cluster consists of channels with the same naming.
E.g. Balenos 1 and Balenos 2.


sG0z30M.png
In case you didn’t notice in CBT-2, you can chose a language channel of your liking. By default it will be now set to the choice of language of your client.

E.g. if you set the client to French, the respective language for Channel Chat will be set to French as well. You can however change the channel independently.Once you chose a chat channel language, you will only send & receive messages broadcasted to/from users with the same setting.

E.g. if I have set German as chat channel, I will only communicate with everyone who has the same setting and not read any messages from users with English or French set as channel chat language.

Cash Shop

Notice ahead: To improve the arrangement of items displayed in the cash shop, we have split up the “costumes” into 2 batches.

“Functional” Costumes, such as the ‘Ent Camouflage Set’ (aka Ghilli Set) and later the Fish costume etc. will remain in the category COSTUME.

“Vanity” Costumes, such as the one from Pre-Order Package (Shudad) and other “Armor Like” costumes will be moved to the new category OUTFIT.

Also we would like to announce that one of the prices from the previous CBT2 Patch Notes will be changed as follows:

Price Change: Outfit Set Package (inlc. Weapon Skin) 3,200 Pearls à 2,900 Pearls

On top, due to the reactions to our cash shop, we would like to pre-announce our planned promotion as follows:

 

Opening Sales

Period: 3rd March – 14th March 08:00 UTC
Sale 1: 20% Discount on all Pets
Sale 2: Outfit Set Package (incl. Weapon Skin) 2,900 Pearls à 2,500 Pearls*
*Note: Conqueror Package holders will be able to utilize their package benefit of 2.500 pearls to purchase a set of their choice during that period.

 

PvP Settings

There haven’t been any additional changes to what we announced for CBT2 (see link).
However, we will keep monitoring the effect of CBT2 settings during our launch phase and keep balancing and adjusting our systems on the run if deemed necessary. Aside from that, devs are currently proceeding in adding more PvP related content and changes to the Siege System. In Korea there have been so far 3 different seasons of Castle Siege modes. Each season renewed the system and inherited some adjustments.
However Season 4 will bring a very new and unique experience to the table that will improve the siege feature which we will adapt to our service directly once we get to the related content update.
Additionally Devs just confirmed that they are doing their best to also deploy the highly demanded new Duel Feature along the Season 4 Update. If everything works according to plan, we will get both features at once.

 

Trading

There are no changes compared to CBT2 settings. Same list of low-tier items remain tradeable. However, we will closely the service to see how this develops over time and adjusted to any means deemed necessary to maintain the integrity of the service.

 

Thunderstorm & Lanterns

The thunderstorm feature that we tested during CBT1 has not been permanently added. It will occur up to 3 times per day on a global scale. As the night will turn almost pitch black (see below), you should lookout for NPCs that offer you a lantern. The lantern effect has also been fixed and allows now to see further than before.

Additionally, as requested, we have disabled other player’s lantern effect by default. You can find it under the Screen settings to turn it back on, along with many other features.

Party loot

Hmm… where to start, because this a great new feature we got for our service!

Example Scenario:

Player A, B and C are in a party
• Player A and B and in range (indicated by the WIFI symbol)
• Player A picks up the item
• Player C is out of range to Player A
• Player D is a regular player outside of this party
• The party finds a Green Staff with MIN: 9,000 and MAX: 10,000 Silver price
VGZziZg.png

The party sets their Grade preference to Green as shown above and checks the mark.

What does it do?
Setting a color/price will make all items found of that category go directly to the “Special Deals Market Queue”*
*(only available for items obtained via party play of minimum of 2 players in range to each other while the item is being picked up)

Special Deals Market Queue
You will find 3 options there:

• Buy Out à Player A and B can purchase the Green Staff from the party for 9,000 silver; 4,500 will be sent to both,
Player A and B

• Gamble à Player A and B can roll a dice; highest number instantly receives the item via in-game mail
• Decline à Player A and/or B can decline the item; Item is then available via options above to other Player; if nobody takes the item, it will be automatically registered after a few minutes at the “Special Deal Market”

Special Deals Market
Once an item is registered here, it will be Free For All (FFA).
The new feature of this market:

• Every item listed at the Special Deals Market will be listed at it’s MIN price.
• Items not being sold, will then continuously drop in price below the actual MIN price until someone purchases it.
• The silver from that purchase will then be sold equally via all members (in our case Player A and B)
*Player C wasn’t part of the above process, because he wasn’t in range of the player (A) who picked up the item.

This feature was just recently released on the KR service, so we might have to tweak some minor settings in some point if deemed necessary.

 

Best regards
PM Belsazar

" You can claim your items under your ACCOUNT once you have accessed the game and created a character"

Do we get a chance to select our characters to mail pre order outfit to? Or does it only go to first character that we made?

 

Can some one please confirm this?

Thanks for the update. This is some good stuff to see.

However, they still haven't removed even the Horse Breed Resets or Ships/Wagon skins that come with actual Ships/Wagons. This is probably a lost cause.
