[Content][Developer’s Comment]

Shai has gained a new talent.

Now Shai can give strength and courage to her friends with her instruments. Though we may not be able to satisfy all adventurers, we hope this patch provides you a meaningful content that will make the game more enjoyable.

As we designed Shai’s talent, we focused on differentiating it from the “Awakening” of the existing characters and on creating a unique charm for Shai. We believed that by maintaining such basis, we could enhance Shai’s quality as a special character. We hope Shai becomes a valuable character through which you can enjoy Black Desert, among all other ways of enjoying the game. Though Shai may differ from other characters in terms of efficiency in certain situations such as battles, her unique strengths will offset such a difference. We will continue doing our best to show you a new fun side of the game through Shai, whose charm you haven’t ever seen in the game.

Also, it was your opinions that mattered the most while we were designing Shai.

Since it is the first time we are trying this, we will actively review your opinions and accept adequate suggestions as we proceed with the development.

We will not develop Shai on a short-term basis, but on a long-term one, and keep adding related contents. For your reference, the three instruments, Tring, Tute, and Tamtam, that were revealed at the Global Lab through the previous updates were removed and unified into a new single item called “Sol”. We know that some of you were looking forward to the previous instruments, but please wait for us, since they will soon come to meet Shai with a new appearance, bearing their true meanings.

  • Different from other characters, Shai gets a new Talent instead of Awakening.
    • Shai uses an item called “Sol” which is placed in the Talent slot in her inventory (I), instead of an Awakening Weapon placed into the Awakening Weapon slot.
    • Shai’s Instrument exclusive skills become more efficient by enhancing the instrument.
    • Shai would play one of Tring, Tute, and Tamtam depending on the skill she casts.
    • A Shai of Lv. 56 or above can receive the quest “[Shai Talent] The First Light, Shai” and start the talent quest.
    • Although Shai can’t open the existing awakening weapon box, she would obtain one blue and one yellow grade instrument called ‘Sol’ after completing ‘[Shai Talent] The First Light, Shai’ with level 56 or above Shai character.
    • The blue graded instrument can’t be enhanced but it has high default stats. The default stat for the yellow grade is lower than that of the blue, but it can become more powerful through enhancement.
    • With the introduction of Shai Talent update, a new Shai exclusive skill window has been added. Also, Inventory(I) window, Dye window(J) and Pearl Shop (F3) will display new ‘Talent’ text and icon instead of Awakening.
    • Shai’s instrument cannot be dyed.
    • You can neither use the Canon Sol as a Fairy Growth ingredient nor discard it.


  • Added the “Do not board other adventurer’s ships” function while fishing.
    • This is active as long as the character is equipping a fishing rod.

[Developer’s Comment]

We know this is an update so many adventurers have been waiting for.

Since there were a lot of things we needed to consider to make the “Do not board other adventurer’s ships” function work, we went through a long test. Though it took us more time than we hoped, we are happy to present you the awaited function.

We also promise you that we will keep fixing the long-standing issues that are hindering your gameplay, starting from the “kidnapping prevention” issue.

However, since we need to be careful when trying to fix a long-standing problem, we will make patches that will let you use the function “by choice” and not by force when introducing it for the first time.
