Black Desert Online players have just received a major game update today, February 22, featuring full reworks and important adjustments to contribution points in specific production nodes. Those tired of setting sail many times to make their profits due to Barter limitations have received some love in the latest patch, with Barter exchange limits slightly increased.

The biggest addition is a full change of Wizard’s game model. Pearl Abyss wrote in Black Desert’s patch notes that Wizard’s “body shape has changed, but the feel of playing Wizard should stay the same as much as possible.” A full video showing changes in detail is also linked in the patch notes.

Here are the full patch notes of the latest Black Desert Online update.

Improvement on Wizard’s Posture

“Today’s patch includes a change to the Wizard’s model.
We’ve been preparing this change since September of 2021 and we’re pleased to finally deliver it today.
This was possible thanks to your widespread support of us and the Wizard class.
Thank you again for your patience and support.

As we have completely changed Wizard’s body shape, what we thought most important was, “The body shape has changed, but the feel of playing Wizard should stay the same as much as possible.” This is because we didn’t want you to experience any change from the gameplay that you are already familiar with. Therefore, we worked on all the animations for a long time while simultaneously testing the way he feels to play, but please understand that some animations may feel slightly different from the previous ones.

In the case of clothing, all of them were reworked to fit the new model. You can see that the overall silhouette of the Wizard has become more striking, as now he has strong and stiff shoulders.

Lastly, with the model change, the previously saved customizations are no longer available. The previous customizations of Wizard that you loved will be preserved via the “Wizard Archive,” so please be understanding even if it’s unfortunate.

We hope your adventurers with the reworked Wizard will be that much more enjoyable.
Thank you.

* Although it was not fixed today, we are diligently looking into the bug where the Forward Guard effect of the “Chilling Wave” is occasionally not applied. We’re working on it so that it can be fixed in due time.”

  • Improved the Wizard’s model.
    • As a result, some of the animations of the Wizard have been changed to match his new model.
  • The customization information of the Wizard has been reset. All previous customizations of the Wizard uploaded in the Beauty Album now can only be viewed from the Wizard Archive category of the Beauty Album on the website.

We have also begun improvements to the management of workers. For starters, we have reduced the worker promotion test duration and reduced the required EXP for changing worker skills.

Improvements on Worker Promotion

Increased Exchange Limit of Trade Items for Barter

With this update, we’ve increased the exchange limit per island for Barter to reduce the fatigue on our Adventurers by shortening the travel route each time you set sail. You can now spend less time to make greater profit, especially for level 5, with the increase in the exchange limit. 
As much as Special Barter is enjoyable content available for Sailing, we’ve removed certain items and replaced them with items that are likely to be more appealing.
We will continue to find ways to not only increase your profit but also allow you to more conveniently enjoy Bartering.

  •  Changed the number of times trade items can be exchanged on an island for each level as follows:

We’ve brought great news for Adventurers who enjoy Housing content in Black Desert. You can now craft the items below, which you could previously only obtain in a few ways, including the Pearl Shop, from a Furniture Workshop. First, you can craft furniture special to each region from the Old Moon Furniture Workshops starting from Kamasylvia and Eilton. We are planning to continue adding more such crafting content, so we hope this update provides new opportunities for Adventurers who enjoy Housing content and for those who have been wanting to spruce up their unique homes. 

Old Moon Furniture Workshop

  • Added “Old Moon Furniture Workshop” to Grána, the capital city of Kamasylvia, and Eilton of the Mountain of Eternal Winter.
    • You can craft the following items from each Old Moon Furniture Workshop.

Now adventurers who enjoy Life-Skilling content can opt for the Mercenary’s Life item for a boost to Life EXP gains every day. Just like Mercenary’s Experience, Mercenary’s Life can be claimed from Challenges and stored away so you can use them whenever you please.

  • Added Mercenary’s Life (60 min).

Protty Cave and Sycraia Underwater Ruins are not easily accessible when compared to other zones, but they provide a unique underwater atmosphere. To reinforce this underwater theme, we’ve added the “Protty’s Song” buff which will act as a unique mechanic of these underwater zones. There are two different types of Protty’s Songs, and the buff will steadily increase in power as you spend more time in a zone. Also, we’ve increased the prices of junk items dropped from monsters in Protty Cave and Sycraia Underwater Ruins Upper Zone. With these changes, defeating monsters in these zones for a longer period of time will be a more enjoyable experience than before.

Improvements to Loot from Protty Cave and Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone)

  • Changed the price of an item that drops from enemies in Protty Cave. (The price of items obtained prior to this change will remain unchanged)
    • Protty Fin 2,100 Silver → 10,500 Silver

  • Added the Protty’s Song buff that can stack up to Level 5 in Sycraia Underwater Ruins Upper Zone and Abyssal Zone.
Protty Cave, Padix IslandSycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone, Abyssal Zone)

* You must obtain a certain amount of Protty’s Song items to level up the buff.

* If you have not yet reached the required amount of Protty’s Song items to progress to the next level upon collecting one, the duration of your current buff will be refreshed instead.            
* The duration of the Protty’s Song buff will stop depleting when the characer is offline.            
* Your progress toward the next level of Protty’s Song will reset upon changing servers, moving to the character select screen, or leaving the zone.      

  • Sped up the respawn timer of “Ghost of Ash Forest,” which is a target monster for certain quests, by 10 times.     


Epheria Galleon

You can now seize the opportunity to helm the greatest ship the Black Desert world has ever seen – the “Epheria Galleon!” However, we felt its size and firepower too great to permanently be under the possession of any one person, so we’ve been working on a variety of means to obtain temporary ownership of this vessel. One of these means involves Special Barter. Another, which won’t be updated today due to the working out of certain kinks, involves Guild Masters of a Guild/Alliance who’ve become a Lord after a Conquest War being able to utilize the “Present” system to award certain Guild Members with the special opportunity to commandeer this grand vessel. This and other means we will continue to work on to be released in the near future.

Special Barter

  • When a Special Barter occurs during a Barter, there is a low chance for “Epheria’s Star” to appear.
    • With Epheria’s Star in your inventory, you accept a special quest from “Philaberto Falasi” in Port Epheria. Complete this quest to obtain “Ship License: Epheria Galleon” and the [Captain Epheria] title, which is a temporary title that lasts for 7 days.

* You can only ride and control an Epheria Galleon if you have the [Captain Epheria] title, and you can only access other features if you do not have the title or if it has expired.

Epheria Galleon Details

Ship Durability3,000,000
Weight Limit30,000 LT
Cannon4 on each side
Cannonball Capacity2,000
Cannon Fire Rate10 sec

* The fire rate and max range of Epheria Galleon’s cannons are identical to Epheria Carrack’s cannons.
* Epheria Galleons cannot equip ship equipment.
* The cost of repairs for an Epheria Galleon is 10 million Silver per 10% damage. (Damage increases upon remote collection or ship destruction)
* Like Epheria Carracks, Epheria Galleons need to be supplied upon initial registration.

Quest & Knowledge

Many Adventurers who wish to craft a carrack are doing daily sailing quests, and they have pointed out how prerequisite quests can cause inconveniences by extending sailing routes. To solve this problem, we removed the prerequisites for daily sailing quests so you can plan out efficient sailing routes that encompass all your quest objectives at once. Furthermore, you can now receive all rewards from completing these quests instead of selecting one reward.

Improvements to Oquilla’s Eye Daily Sailing Quests (Combat)

  • Changed the following quests so you can accept and progress them without completing prerequisite quests.
    • [Daily] Old Moon Guild’s Candidum Hunter
    • [Daily] Old Moon Guild’s Nineshark Hunter
    • [Daily] Old Moon Guild’s Black Rust Hunter
    • [Daily] Old Moon Guild’s Young Candidum Hunter
    • [Daily] Old Moon Guild’s Young Nineshark Hunter
    • [Daily] Old Moon Guild’s Young Black Rust Hunter

* However, you can still choose and progress only one regular sea monster quest or young sea monster quest a day.

  • The objectives of the following quests have been changed, and their rewards now match regular sea monster quests.

Node & Conquest War

Change in requirements for participation opportunities to be restored

  • The minimum requirements for participation opportunities to be restored for Node War have been changed as follows:
    • Before: total number of enemy forts destroyed or enemies defeated/killed is 20 or greater
    • After: total number of enemy forts destroyed or enemies defeated/killed is 50 or greater
  • On servers where a Node/Conquest War is in progress, the DP of all adventurers’ mounts not participating in the war will be set to 0.
  • Fixed the information in the tooltip regarding the return criteria for participation opportunities in occupied areas to match the changed criteria in Guild (G) – Guild Information.

NPC, Background, Sound

  • Spring has arrived in Black Desert.
    • Changed some backgrounds in Black Desert to reflect a spring theme.


  • Changed so now you can apply Hide mount’s gear option to each mount individually, not all mounts at once.
  • The saved information on See Other’s Campsite option has been reset.
  • Fixed the issue where mount gear is not hidden properly in certain situations after using some of the content, even though the Hide mount’s gear option is turned on.
  • Expanded the space of the Black Spirit’s adventure completion reward item.


Previously, it took an hour to use Character Transport between towns via the Character Selection window. With the addition of the Magnus, the difficulty of traveling between towns has been greatly reduced. As an one hour requirement for Character Transport is deemed to be a bit too long now, we have adjusted it to 20 minutes. We hope that this will make it easier for adventurers to relocate characters scattered across the BDO world or transport sub-characters somewhere else.

Adjustment to the time required in Character Transport system

  •  Changed the time required for Character Transport from the Character Selection window from an hour to 20 minutes.


  • Changed the Wizard’s appearances registered in the Beauty Album to a category called “Wizard Archive”.

  • Improved the UI for search results.

  • Changed the link for creating an account on the upper right of the homepage.
  • Fixed the issue where English would be displayed for the in-game coupon page with the es-ES language selected.

Modified or Changed

  • Fixed the issue where the non-combat stance appeared abnormally upon equipping the awakening weapon for [Woosa, Maegu] within the Dye (J) window of the Pearl Shop (F3).
  • Fixed the issue where the [Ninja] Shuriken Throw skill would not activate while jumping in air. 
  • Fixed the issue where a grayed out Quest Widget would be displayed after a Node War was concluded.
