Black Desert Console Update 2.44 – July 20, 2022

● Axe of Destruction
– Fixed the issue where 1003% attack damage was being applied instead of 763% attack damage.


● Earthly Pain

The Adventure Logs were originally designed to provide a different means of experiencing the variety of content Black Desert had to offer, while also rewarding the Adventurer with items or stats.
To help new Adventurers progress through the available Adventure Logs with ease, we’ve altered some of the objectives for these entries, including Igor Bartali’s Adventure Journal that started it all.

● Improved the Adventure Logs as follows:

– Objective: 19235 completed quests
– Completing the page will earn you a Permanent Enhancement Chance +1 (Family Wide)



Cron Meal cooldowns have been reduced from 30 minutes to 10 seconds.
Cron Meals were used in a variety of different content, but were inconvenient to use if ever they were accidentally consumed due to the long cooldown times.
To prevent such mishaps, we decided to reduce their cooldown to 10 seconds. However, considering how Health EXP can be gained from food consumption, we decided to add the “Satiated” debuff to keep the rate of gaining Health EXP the same as before.
Please note that certain other food effects can still be stacked, hence the reason why we chose to retain their respective cooldowns as before.

● Changed the cooldown of Seafood Cron Meal, Simple Cron Meal, and Exquisite Cron Meal to 10 seconds.
– Consuming any of the following food items will apply the “Satiated” debuff.
– The “Satiated” debuff lasts for 30 minutes. During this time, any food consumed will not grant your character Health EXP gains.
– The complete list of food items that apply the “Satiated” debuff when consumed are as follows.
* Certain event food items also apply the “Satiated” debuff.

● The following item names and tooltips have been adjusted:

– Item Collection Increase Scroll (30 min)
– Floramos Petal
– Dragon Slayer Patraca Blueprint
– Forest Emerald, Gold Topaz, Ocean Sapphire, Star Diamond
– [Season] Rift’s Crystal
– Combat & Skill EXP 300% Scroll


● Applied the following changes to the loot obtained from Star’s End monsters:
– Increased the drop rate of Black Distortion Earring from Star’s End monsters by 1.2 times.
– Increased the drop rate of Black Distortion Earring from “Possessed Apostle of Malevolence” by 2 times.
● Atoraxxion – Applied the following changes to the loot that can be obtained from Sycrakea Reward Chest.
– Syca’s Rare Box

Before Now
Tungrad Ring
Vaha’s Dawn
Ethereal Earring
Tungrad Ring
Vaha’s Dawn

* Applies to the loot that is obtained after the update. Does not apply to Syca’s Rare Boxes already in your possession.
● Changed the following loot price that can be obtained by gathering with a Hoe after defeating mushroom in Polly’s Forest:
– Loot Price: 1,955 → 9,720


Quest, Knowledge

● There are stories/side-quests that come from all over the world of Black Desert:
– Crio from Velia says that there is a fish well known for its taste.
– It seems like a cute kitten from Velia is waiting for someone.
– It is rumored that there is a kid that speaks with an unusual accent in the Calpheon Slum.
– A Valencian archaeologist is waiting for news from her sister, who has decided to explore the desert in search of the Aakman Temple.
– The O’draxxia Work Manager and Storage Keeper have started to spread new rumors.
– Benns Lamute of the Lamute Gang heard a rumor regarding treasure chests at Papua Crinea Island.
– A soldier guarding the supply manager’s wares in Heidel has yet to hear back from his brother at the Castle Ruins.
– They say a man at Marino Farm craves to taste the fabled “grape”.
– A hungry child in the Calpheon Slum is in need of aid.
– A man in Valencia appears to be in dire need of a break.
● Improved Miya’s Delivering Goods quests, accepted in the Dancing Marlin Tavern at Velia, to receive the trade good immediately when accepting the quest.
– Affected Quests: Delivering Goods: Baremi Island, Delivering Goods: Narvo Island, Delivering Goods: Tinberra Island
– Accept the quest and obtain the goods through dialogue → Accept the quest and obtain the goods immediately if there is an empty slot in your Inventory
● Improved on the energy exchange function where you could not exchange energy for energy potions via Alustin in Velia if the character had 200 or more energy and did not complete the renewed Balenos questline.
● Improved the “Traveler’s Map” item, received as a reward for completing the “Purified Ritual” quest, to be usable near Sarma Anin during the Mediah main quest “The Kingdom of Mediah.”
– Therefore, the quest location of the quests that required you to cross the Mediah Castle bridge was changed to a location before the bridge.
* The Black Sun, [Boss] Awakened Black Spirit, Purified Ritual, The Kingdom of Mediah
● Improved to be able to accept “Shining Brighter: Narc Ear Accessory” and “Shining Brighter: Tungrad Earring” from Jetina, the Manager of the Old Moon Guild even with enhanced earrings in your possession.

‘”The Last Ritual” is the grand finale of the Driegan main questline where your character faces off against Garmoth. However, due to the history between the Sherekhans and Drakania, if you proceed with the quest as a Drakania, you face Garmoth on your own as the the Sherekhans will not help you (due to the history between Drakania and the Sherekhans). While it was intentionally a little difficult, it was too difficult for new Adventurers to take on. Therefore, we have eased the level of difficulty when proceeding with “The Last Ritual” quest as Drakania to be similar in difficulty as when other classes proceed with the quest.

● If proceeding with the quest “The Last Ritual” with Drakania, the quest has been made easier to complete.

 To celebrate Black Desert being serviced in all regions, your longtime companion, the Black Spirit, has prepared a special gift for the occasion in the forms of the “Blood-eyed Visor” and “Blood-eyed Earrings!”

We’d like to thank all of our Adventurers for enjoying Black Desert.

● Added Event quests available through the Black Spirit to obtain the “Blood-eyed Visor” and “Blood-eyed Earrings.”
– You can find the [Event] Touchy-Feely Heart to Heart and [Event] Now You’re Making Me Blush quests in the Black Spirit – Quest – Event tab.
– These quests will be available from July 20, 2022 (Wed) after maintenance until Dec 28, 2022 (Wed) before maintenance (once per Family).
* You can move the Blood-eyed Visor and Blood-eyed Earrings to another character in your Family via Storage.
