[Developer’s Comment]

Shai is now able to ride horses. We thank all Shai adventurers who have been waiting for this.

Originally we hoped Shai, different from the existing characters, could travel by riding a donkey and bring you a new play experience. However, after the updates, we gathered the opinions of many adventurers around the world and concluded that our wish was not an open but a forceful choice. Hence we made improvements with this patch and enabled Shai to ride horses. For those adventurers who appreciated the donkey, we will continuously make patches to offer you other ways of using the donkey.

The same goes for Shai’s talent patch; with the launch of the Global Lab, we are considering your opinions, and doing our best to patch it live as soon as possible. We hope Shai becomes your unique, charming friend and we will support any necessary resource investment or development for this to happen.

[Developer’s Comment]

We had introduced Capotia accessories in the past as a symbolic reward of your very first level-up. Since they used to be TRI accessories, them being a reward itself was seen as meaningful back then.

However, we concluded, from our current as well as future point of view, that Capotia accessories would gradually become less attractive. We consequently added ingredients that could be used more broadly (such as raising a second character) and an enhancement feature that could enhance the value of an accessory.

We worked on this patch focusing on that these two updates would not immediately affect the market. So not every player might need Capotia accessories for now, but we hope their significance and usefulness to grow further on a long term basis.

[Developer’s Comment]

At the beginning of the game, you have no horse and must run wherever you go. Hence the Footprint of the Wind was a way of helping beginners to get used to the Black Desert World by allowing them to move quickly. We extended its effect duration to 3 min, reflecting the opinions that the old duration was too short.

Though it might be a minor change, we think such small parts of the game do matter too. We will continue doing patches that assist rookie adventurers in adapting to the game.
