I Will Only Be Taking Responses From CMs and GMs Seriously! Player Discussion Still Welcome.

@CM_Jouska

- Drop rates for field bosses, guild bosses, and Kzarka have been adjusted.

Drop rate increased or decreased?


- Kzarka will now spawn in all channels.

Spawn timer?

 

Additional inquiries:

1. How does the "B" system for items such as Liverto's work?

2. The Guild Boss Scrolls say they have a 30 minute timer, but can run over the timer.. Is this a bug? If not, does the amount of time to slay the guild boss effect the loot table?

3. Is Boss Armor in our version yet?

4. Do Kzarka Weapons truly give more hidden accuracy than Liverto's?

5. What's the status on being able to use MSI Afterburner while playing the game? (Stopped working fine around mid to late March)

  • Drop rates for field bosses, guild bosses, and Kzarka have been adjusted. Drop rate increased or decreased?
    • This is more complicated, items from the loot table were adjusted on a one by one basis and there are conditions that determine loot drops. 
  • Kzarka will now spawn in all channels. Spawn timer?
    • Kzarka will spawn in every 8 to 16 hours after server opens.  After spawned or killed then it will spawn every 32 to 44 hours.
  • How does the "B" system for items such as Liverto's work?
    • When the item is first listed it is placed in a Bid state, where you can attempt to purchase it.  A RNG Mechanic will determine if you are allowed to purchase it.  If you do not win the RNG Mechanic, you will not be able to purchase until the B is removed, this is a set amount of time, at which point it becomes first come first serve.
  • The Guild Boss Scrolls say they have a 30 minute timer, but can run over the timer.. Is this a bug? If not, does the amount of time to slay the guild boss effect the loot table?
    • The loot is negatively impacted.
  • Is Boss Armor in our version yet?
    • This has not been announced for our region.
  • Do Kzarka Weapons truly give more hidden accuracy than Liverto's?
    • This has not been announced in any region.
  • What's the status on being able to use MSI Afterburner while playing the game?
    • I will check on this again, but I do not have an ETA.

1. It's a bidding system, you can RNG win it when you go to buy it. completely random.

2. IT doesn't, affect the loot

3. I don't think so, im sure we would've seen it by now

4. Yes, from extensive testing it was proven, but believe what you'd like from others.

5. I don't use that

Those are my opinions and answers :)

Ok, then how have the drop rates for Liverto boxes and high end crystals been changed?

well if you meet those "conditions" then i would hopefully assume the drop rate was increased on atleast the crystals

Watched all day today, saw no livertos drop from the guild boss (including 2 my guild did that easily met those conditions, we also got no crystals from ours, when before some one would get at least one crystal), so I'm very curious because it wouldn't be the first time they nerfed something after other guilds got max benefit out of it, thus increasing the gap between the guilds that did and di not at the time.

When you talk about "conditions" and loot drops what do you mean? Do we need to meet certain "conditions" so the boss have a chance  dropping the loot, or do we have to meet certain "conditions" to be elegible for the loot? I dont know maybe i got it wrong but it seems like you guys added another round of rng on top of rng xD

P.s i consider the "hidden conditions" as rng because with no knowledge on how to meet them its pretty much up to that.

Kzarka is every 32-44 hours so you expect people who play black desert that work to sit around and not only sit around but sit around within a 5 minute range of serendia shrine for kzarka to spawn because if you are in altinova or trent by the time you get to him he will be at 50% or less (with the current zergs spawn camping him). 

 

Why is he on a staggered insane range spawn timer of 12 hours?  I get the point of longevity and not having him spawn every 12 hours like in the other versions of the game so that Zaka weapons are rarer and harder to get but on a RNG timer anytime within 12 hours. During that 12 hours forcing all major players to sit within 3-5 minute horse range of Serendia shrine?

The spawn timer being that long is fine. But seriously the RNG spawn timer is Stupid and INSANELY unfair to 90% of the player base in black desert (And annoying to the other 10%).

Make it a long spawn of 24-44 hrs but make it at a exact time (I.E 6 PM every 2 days or w.e). So people can actually work around it and do things other than AFKing waiting for it.

Good to hear. As Jouska said, it only happens to certain people. It's not a XignCode problem either like the Customer Support give their robotic answer.

 

To those on about the field/guild bosses; i can tell you for certain the field bosses drop tons more loot. Just did 2 field bosses after i made this post - got a liverto, 500k, 3x 300k crystal, 8 weaponstones, 5 armorstones and 6 hunter seals.

When the regular Maintenance is from 8 AM to 13 AM UTC, Kzarka would spawn from 9 PM to 5 AM UTC every Wedneysday. 

Is it intended to spawn the boss while the most Players are sleeping in Europe or could we get another Offset for the EU Servers?

@CM_Jouska

With  32-44 hour the chances of him spawning during the night are pretty high aniway. The next cycle for example at least for my timezone will be from 4pm to 4 am.

That's all well and good but my question is, are the drops rates/contribution assessment balanced based on class? For instance a berserkers only choice (since it has no ranged abilities at all) is to go into melee range with Kzarka and continulally die. Either losing xp and crystals, or paying tears to res up with no XP loss. All the while doing 'less' damage than classes attacking from range. Nevermind damage from Wartags etc. and all that.

 

Essentially what is your position on this? Is it a case of "well it sucks for you that you made a berserker, tough luck" or do you add consideration for a pure melee class on these bosses? If not it's somethnig you should probably look into.

 

As ever, my most important eternal question: When are we getting server updates so that the berserker class isn't completely punishing to play in PvP because of broken grab mechanics? How can I play using a VPN to other regions of the game far scross the globe and have a better, mostly D-Sync free gameplay experiences there, but have worse server performance connected to machines that I could travel to in under an hour? There's pretty much no acceptable excuse for this...

The servers become noticably more unstable towards the end of the week. The Few nights before maintenance the game becomes virtually unplayable.

Thank you for your time...

The next cylce could be from 3AM to 3PM (and shift until 11AM to 11PM) UTC depending on the first spawn.
This would be during the day for european players. I think thats ok, but the first cycle is very hard to attend for the most players.

Yeah again using my timezone, today he spawned at 8 am so next is from 4 pm to 4 am. Lets say that we are lucky and he spawn at 4 pm and everyone can do it nice! What happen then... next spawn time will be from 12pm to 12 am pretty bad... ok lets say he spawn at 8 pm instead, now its from 4 am to 4pm yeah again pretty bad! And finally lets say he spawn after 44 hours at 12 pm next cycle 8 am 8 pm kinda good. Sooo in the end its on a 32-44 cycle (pretty long already) but the reality is that the chances of missing that 12 hour mark for most people is pretty high.

@CM_Jouska

Do you have any information on how exactly the Kzarka spawn works?

Today multiple spawns happened at the same time on different channels, so I was wondering:

Does Kzarka only spawn on full hours, e.g. 08:00, 09:00, etc. or can it happen any minute?
