CBT-1 Events

Posted (edited)

Greetings Everyone!

The first closed beta is almost here and we are proud to announce our first series of in-game events.  For those of you with a Conqueror’s Package, or the lucky winners of the CBT Key Giveaways, there will be several events hosted throughout the duration of the test.  Keep reading to see what is in store, and we look forward to seeing everyone in game soon.

  1. Dye Away!

  • Start: Thursday, Dec. 17th 9:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 3:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]

  • Repeats every day at 9:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 3:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]

Black Desert provides an extensive dye system that actually allows you to dye various parts of your equipment.  We want to give everyone the chance to see the dye system, and let us know what you think about it.  To make sure each participant has this opportunity, we will send out five dye bundles, each with three dyes, every day of the closed beta test.  You will be able to apply these dyes to your equipment or, if you do not get the color you are looking for, you can combine any two dyes to get a new random dye.

You can access the dye combination page by hitting Esc in game and then clicking the combine button.  Please note you do not need to be online to receive your dye, it will be delivered via the mail system

  1. Fishing Tournament

  • Start: Wednesday, Dec. 16th  8:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 2:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]

  • End: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd  8:00 a.m. CET [EU Server] / 2:00 a.m. EST [NA Server]

Fishing is one of multiple professions in Black Desert, sporting over one hundred fish that are unique to different regions.  Some fish can only be found in freshwater, while others are exclusive to salt water.  When the Bait Master Tour begins, every player can make their way over to Cron Castle Cliff or any other saltwater area and try their luck at catching a Beltfish.  Once you have managed to catch one, take a screenshot of the fish in your inventory along with your character sheet and post it on the forums in the Fishing Tournament thread.  Every player that provides proof of their catch will be awarded a unique title once the game launches.

If you are new to fishing and would like to participate in this event there are a few things you should try to do beforehand to make sure you are prepared.  Most importantly, you will need to get a fishing rod.  You can purchase one in Velia, from Fish Vendor Crio. Once you have that make your way to the Cron Castle Cliff.  To start fishing, all you have to do is equip the fishing rod, walk up to the water and hit space bar.  After a couple tries you should start catching fish and increasing your fishing skill.  Keep at it and you will be able to catch your own Beltfish to earn the title.

  1. Horse Whisperer

  • Thursday, Dec. 17th – Sunday, Dec. 20th

  • 08:00 p.m. CET [EU Server] / 10:00 p.m. EST [NA Server]

As some of you know, and others will soon find out, the Black Desert world is large.  Sometimes you need to get somewhere and running simply is not quick enough.  From Thursday through Sunday, our GMs will roam around the world between 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. to summon wild horses for you to see how taming works.  This will be a great time to learn the ropes and catch your first mount.  If you want to participate in this event, you will need to level your taming skill to Beginner Lv 5. You can do this by riding a donkey or vendor mount, available from every Stable-hand.

Once your taming skill is Beginner Lv 5 you will need to craft some sugar Lumps and purchase a few Capturing Ropes.  To craft a sugar lump you will need to purchase 10 raw sugar and 1 mineral water, from any Chef, which you can usually find in an inn, then you heat the together with the production menu (J). Capturing Ropes can be purchased from any stable-hand.

  1. The Festival of Lanterns

  • Saturday, Dec. 19th – Sunday, Dec. 20th

  • 09:00 p.m. CET [EU Server] / 10:00 p.m. EST [NA Server]

The announcement of darker, more realistic nights sparked a lot of great feedback from the community.  The fourth event invites everyone to make their way to Serendia to the south of Hidel or the Temple of Agris west of Velia, in the dead of night in channels 1 and 3.  For the duration of this event you will get to experience the new stormy night weather effect. Don’t worry though, everyone will be given a lantern to light their way.  Players who join us will be right on time to see what’s lurking in the shadows.

  1. Shadows Looming

  • Saturday, Dec. 19th – Sunday, Dec. 20th

  • 08:00 p.m. CET [EU Server] / 10:00 p.m. EST [NA Server]

This event will show everyone why it is dangerous to go alone into the night.  There are monsters in the world that are simply too powerful for any one person to face without allies.  All those gathered together at the Serendia Temple and Temple of Agris in channels 1 & 3 will have to work together if they want to take down one of the strongest monsters in the game.

  6. Copy Cat 

  • Start: Wednesday, Dec. 16th - Tuesday, Dec. 22nd
     

One of the most impressive features of Black Desert is surely its incredible Character Creation Module (CCM). We would like to invite everyone to experience the richness of this feature and recreate yourself, a friend, an actor or just anyone that comes into your mind and participate in our Facebook event. All you need to do is to take a screenshot

[Default key: Print Screen à C:\Users\PC_Name\Documents\Black Desert\ScreenShot]

and use your newly created character to replace your profile picture on Facebook. Then head over to our Facebook page and leave a comment to this announcement.

We will pick 30 lucky winners and ask them to contact us via Facebook to share their address. Our lucky winners will receive a very unique “Drawstring Bag” with a Black Desert Design, which we gave away at Paris Games Week.

 

Note: The character you have created must bee on the Europe or America server. Please post your Family Name along with your message on Facebook.

 

Best of luck!

That "Shadows Looming" event sounds interesting. But it's also kinda vague. Can everyone participate? Is there a level entry to take down one of the strongest monsters in the game?
