    ● Treasure Hunters continue to stow away their chests around the Black Desert World.

    – Over time, Treasure Hunters have stored even more precious items in their treasure chests.

    – Rumor has it that the most valuable relics have been stowed away in new secure chests, and these chests require a special key to unlock.

    – But Adventurers are not the only ones seeking these chests. Goblins and Grave Robbers have been spotted lurking around them. .

    – When you open an existing treasure chest, there is a chance a Goblin or Grave Robber has got to it first, and you never know which one you’re going to find inside.

    – When they appear, you will need to chase after the opportunity-seeking Goblin or Grave Robber and make them drop their special keys.

    – Goblin’s Key will unlock more valuable and rare items than a Grave Robber’s key.

    – Only special keys can unlock the new Treasure Chests which are scattered across Balenos, Serendia and Calpheon. Some of these chests may contain special historical artifacts forged years ago.


    ● When using the Campsite option, the starting select position has been moved to the ‘Repair’ function.

    ● The Central Market starting select position has been moved to the ‘Desired Price;.

    ● New options have been added to the ring menu option.

    – You must have at least one character with level 56 or above to begin Character Tagging.
    – Both characters need to be in the same town before starting the tagging. (However, characters cannot be tagged in Kusha, Abun, and Muiqunn.)

    – You can freely switch between your tagged characters by adding character tag to your ring menu.
