  • Nightmarish Kzarka


Kzarka, bereft of his soul by Illezra who brought the Three Days of Darkness upon Mediah, has begun to consume the adventurers who stand in the way of his Ritual of Resurrection. On the days his rage reaches its peak, he plunges into rage as “Nightmarish Kzarka” and darkness shrouds the skies of Serendia.

  • During the appearance of Nightmarish Kzarka, a greater darkness shrouds Serendia. The Lord of Serendia is looking for powerful adventurers who can vanquish this darkness.
    • Nightmarish Kzarka is much more powerful than the regular Kzarka but he will drop more valuable loot. You can obtain up to TET (IV) Kzarka Main Weapon (+0, I, II, III, IV) and also have an increased chance of getting Belongings of an Adventurer, Gold Bar (up to 1KG), or a type of Magical Black Stone.
    • [Weekly] Trophy: Kzarka quest and Season Pass quest of defeating Kzarka will not be completed when you defeat him as Nightmarish Kzarka is a unique monster.


Known to many by the title “KeeezAaannng!”, the World Boss Kzarka will now occasionally appear in a new form. The newly created Nightmarish Kzarka comes back with a force to reclaim its fame as being the first World Boss of Black Desert. The renewal of a World Boss was quite a challenge to us as adventurers had been asking about it for quite some time now. We didn’t want to radically change things by shooting up the difficulty levels so we decided to make Nightmarish Kzarka appear by chance and retained some of the experience with the Kzarka we are familiar with. (We have plans to renew other World Bosses as well but we might approach it differently from how we’ve handled Kzarka. Ex) Boss appearing only during the evening, or only appearing when a group of adventurers join forces together.) Nightmarish Kzarka will drop better loot compared to the regular Kzarka. But beware, as Nightmarish Kzarka is much more challenging than its previous form.

▲ (Left) Nightmarish Kzarka appears as it deals AoE damage / (Right) Kzarka opening up a series of attacks and AoE damage as a pattern

▲ (Left) Roaring, and attacking with black breath / (Right) An attack pattern in which nearby targets are pulled and dealt with a powerful blow

▲ (Left) Tentacle Summoning attack patterns (You will receive a movement speed/attack speed debuff upon hit) / (Right) A beserk pattern that brings down chaos

※ Images were taken using a GM character which is invincible to attacks.

  • La Orzeca Outfit

Viorencia Odore, the queen of the Arid Land of O’dyllita, announced that she would grant the Orzeca relic known as the La Orzeca Outfit to whoever brings her Quturan’s Lungs, the Divine Tree of the fallen Ancient Orzeca Kingdom.

  • The La Orzeca Outfit was a gear made in Orzeca long ago, in order to protect those from the grips of Hadum. It was created by instilling the powers of the Thornwood goddess into the incarnation of greed.
    • The powers of the Thornwood goddess were extracted from the gear and into Quturan’s Lungs when Orzeca met its demise. the Divine Tree. Since then, its whereabouts have been unknown. According to the Ahibs, recently, it can be found from the Monster Zones below.


Item Name Acquired From

Quturan’s Left Lung

Quturan’s Black Leaf

Thornwood Forest

Ash Forest

Crypt of the Resting Thoughts


Quturan’s Right Lung

Quturan’s Ashen Leaf


Olun’s Valley

Crypt of the Resting Thoughts

  • Collect the leaves affected by the powers of the Quturan’s Lungs and unite them together into a single source of power. These leaves have a higher chance to drop than the lungs.
    • ※ Perform Simple Alchemy on Quturan’s Black Leaf to obtain Quturan’s Left Lung, and on Quturan’s Ashen Leaf to obtain Quturan’s Right Lung.
    • Right-click on the lungs to begin a story quest which is available once per family. At the later stages of the quest, you can obtain the La Orzeca Helmet with Quturan’s Left Lung, and the La Orzeca Armor with Quturan’s Right Lung.
    • You can obtain the La Orzeca Outfit through NPCs by exchanging additional Quturan’s Lungs you obtain.
    • Once you have completed all the La Orzeca Helmet and La Orzeca Armor quests, you’ll be given a final quest through the Black Spirit in which you can obtain the “La Orzeca” title.

La Orzeca Outfit is the very first outfit in the game that can be obtained through loots. Its design was based on the ancient theme (Black Spirit concept) along with added effects and an exclusive title once it is crafted. This outfit has been aimed for adventurers who are at a fairly advanced level and hope to distinguish themselves aesthetically. We hope this outfit can become another exciting goal for adventurers to seek out as it is unique not only in its look but also in the adventures you must overcome to claim it as yours. We did consider adding special effects to the La Orzeca Outfit but we decided not to as it should be an optional challenge instead of a compulsory one. Hence, the outfit will have normal effects just like other regular outfits.

  • Perilla’s Star


Perilla is the former love of Fughar, the Chief Manager of the Crow Merchants Guild. The once lost Perilla’s Star she left behind for Fughar has reappeared for adventurers to explore.

  • Accept the quest “[Perilla’s Star] Fughar’s Woe” from the Black Spirit. The quest unravels Fughar’s tragic love story of how Perilla left him and how he had to work hard to escape from his poverty-striken circumstances.
    • The “[Perilla’s Star] Fughar’s Woe” quest can be obtained by Season Characters or normal characters converted from Season Characters.
    • Complete the [Perilla’s Star] Fughar’s Woe quest line to receive Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon, which can be used to exchange for Perilla’s Star.
  • Autumn Season Early Graduation Starts

Behind every great feat is a special reward. Meet Fughar to apply for Autumn Season’s Early Graduation!

  • Adventurers who’ve met the Early Graduation requirements between Oct 21 (after maintenance) to Nov 18 (before maintenance) can go to Fughar and receive the “[Season Server Graduation] At the Crossroad” quest to begin your graduation early.


Early Graduation Requirements – Achieved at least 228 main weapon AP and 291 DP (This does not include the awakening weapon AP listed in the equipment screen, and is only 228 main weapon AP.)

– Adventurers who haven’t bought the Black Spirit Pass must have completed all of the “Season Pass Challenges” and received the rewards.

– Adventurers who have bought the Black Spirit Pass must have completed all of the “Season/Black Spirit Pass Challenges” and received the rewards.

※ Check for more details in our GM notes about the [Autumn Season Early Graduation] post.

※ Please note that you will no longer be able to enjoy our Autumn Season related events, contents, and Season Server benefits once you graduate early.

※ You cannot enhance Tuvala weapons by converting them with a Conversion Stone after Early Graduation.

  • The completion record of all “[Enhancement] Even Stronger Tuvala Gear” weekly quests has been reset.
  • Added Rift’s Echo as a Season Server weekly quest reward for defeating monsters.
    • Adventurers who have already completed Season Server weekly quests can reaccept the quests again after the October 21st maintenance.
    • As a reminder, these weekly quests can be found under “[Enhancement] Even Stronger Tuvala Gear” tab in the Quests (O) window.
    • You can accept and complete one of the following quests once per family each week.
    • The Rift’s Echo will be given in addition to the Time-filled Black Stone x600 or Tuvala Ore x90 or Refined Magical Black Stone x40 rewards you can choose from for completing the weekly quests.
  • Added Alustin’s Alchemy Journal in the Adventure Logs.
    • This log holds records of Alustin, the famous alchemist of Velia.
    • This Adventure Log becomes available once you reach level 61 or complete [O’dyllita] Keepsake of Ataraxia, and accept and complete Adventure Log: Alustin’s Alchemy Journal from the Black Spirit.
    • Complete the objectives to obtain a large number of Caphras Stones.
  • Queen Brolina of Kamasylvia has answered a villager’s appeal from Grána and has imported dairy cows from their ally, Calpheon, to start a farm.
    • The farm is located at the west of Grána.
    • The farm is managed by Rosaria the Papu. You can also meet Povios, the Xian Merchant from Calpheon there.
    • Povios is only available to players who’ve completed the renewed Kamasylvia main quest line.


We’ve had many requests from adventurers asking about adding dairy cows to Valencia City and O’draxxia. Matters are being discussed and decisions haven’t been made but it seems there’s a good chance that discussions will end up with Valencia City having camels added instead of dairy cows, due to the regional environment.

  • Changed the Black Desert Team’s entrance and revival point of Castle Ruins in the Red Battlefield so that it is not too close to the castle walls.


  • For Europe, Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, October 25 at 03:00 local standard time (or 02:00 CET) for Europe.

    • The starting and ending times for Node/Conquest War and the Tribute Wagon departure time were pushed backward by 1 hour for our European servers due to the start of daylight saving time.
    • This simply means your Node/Conquest Wars will start at 20:00 CET, and Tribute Wagons will depart at 18:00 CET.
  • For North America, Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 1 at 02:00 local standard time (or 01:00 PST) for Europe.

  • Fixed the issue where the game client would sometimes stop when using Epheria Carrack’s FocusFire skill (Q or E).

[Game World]

  • Changed the Quarry lighting to be brighter to increase efficiency of Quarry workers for the sake of Marco Faust, the Lord of Keplan who is suffering from sickness in Calpheon.

  • Added Hashashin to Trial Characters.
  • Added furniture items obtainable from sea creatures.
    • You can craft Ocean Stalker Chandelier and Nineshark Chandelier at level 3 Furniture Workshops of Calpheon, Epheria, and Florin using items collected from sea creatures.
  • You can now Manufacture Crow’s Trade Voucher into an Item Collection Increase Scroll (60 min) via the Processing (L) menu.
  • Gatekeepers of Crescent Shrine, Desert Naga Temple, Titium Valley, and Cadry Ruins have obtained great power through the Argos blood ritual.
    • The gatekeepers now use more deadly attacks as they have been strengthened by the blood ritual.
    • They will also sometimes endure mortal wounds and retreat back to their territory nearby to heal themselves.

    • There is a chance to obtain a very precious item by defeating Graverobber Afuaru in certain regions.

Graverobber Afuaru was created as a refreshing element in combat for adventurers while defeating monsters. However, we felt that it wasn’t interesting enough so we’ve made changes so that treasure materials drop at a very low rate in regions where treasures can be found, and added it to O’dyllita.

  • Changed the indicated zone of attack on the ground to be more accurate when Ahib Griffon, appearing in the Dark Rift, uses its whirlwind attacks.
  • Fixed issue where Apostle of Immorality would not react to the player or exist in the correct spawn point at Star’s End.
    • Partially changed how Apostle of Malevolence appears to make the relevant fix above.


  • A new record about the ancient kingdom Orzeca has been discovered in O’dyllita’s Crypt of Resting Thoughts.


Queen Viorencia Odore has announced that she would grant the Resplendent Moonlight Chest to whoever helps decipher the Orzeca’s Records: Time of Dragons. Rumors say that people have seen the radiant light illuminating from this Resplendent Moonlight Chest, a kind of light only seen in that of a dragon’s heart.

  • You can accept the quest “Orzeca’s Records: Time of Dragons” from Black Eyeroot of the Crypt of Resting Thoughts, with a character who has completed the quest “[O’dyllita] Vuhura Kaheliak” from “[Lv.60 O’dyllita I] Flower of the Burning Moon” questline.
    • This quest is only available once per family.
    • Complete all 14 missions after completing the quest “Orzeca’s Records: Time of Dragons” to be blessed by Queen Viorencia. However, this will not be an easy challenge.
    • Open the Resplendent Moonlight Chest to obtain Inverted Heart of Garmoth.


Many treasure items are awaiting to be found by adventurers in the world of Black Desert. Garmoth’s Heart, which has certainly been the biggest center of attention, is a treasure that directly affects your equipment level, making adventurers very anxious to obtain it. To help relatively new adventurers dive into this race, we aimed to create a system where patient and constant efforts in the long-term was a requirement in attaining this item. Black Desert will continue to discuss ways to encourage participation from adventurers of different passion to be included in our future.
