What is the Black Spirit’s Adventure?

The Black Spirit’s Adventure is a board game where you can earn fantastic rewards. Roll the dice and move around the board, and for each square you land on, you will earn a reward.

What is the Black Spirit’s Adventure?

The Black Spirit’s Adventure is a board game where you can earn fantastic rewards. Roll the dice and move around the board, and for each square you land on, you will earn a reward.


How to Play (To access the ‘Black Spirit’s Adventure’, go through the Menu > Rewards)
1) You can check which dice are currently stored.

2) Press X/▢ to [Acquire] a set of dice! (After acquiring a set of dice, you must wait 30 minutes before collecting the next)

3) You can check what Arcana cards you have by pressing LT+Y / L2 + △

4) You can select which set of dice you want to roll using LS, then press A / X to roll the dice

– Rolling doubles will earn you an immediate extra roll after moving!


5) Reaching the FINISH will earn you a completion reward and move on to a new board.


But things are never quite so simple when the Black Spirit is involved. Each time you roll, you roll two dice (consuming 1 set of dice per roll). The total of these two dice will determine how many squares you will move around the board. Doubles allow you to roll one more time without consuming extra die, so hitting those double 6’s will catapult you around the board at a lightning pace.

Once you get all the way around one board, you will receive a special prize for completing the level, and move on to the next board. There are also some special loaded dice, which will move you a set number of squares depending on the one you select. These special dice can be obtained in a variety of ways, but more on that later.

You can also power up the Black Spirit with Arcana Cards. These cards have special abilities to truly shake up the board. From moving a set number of squares, to doubling the dice roll, there are arcana cards for all situations.

How do I get Dice?
There are multiple ways to get dice. The first (and easiest) way to get dice is just playing Black Desert. Each 30 minutes, you play Black Desert, you will receive 1 roll. You can receive a maximum of 3 rolls per day (90 minutes of playtime) from this method. You will need to collect these every 30 minutes, otherwise you will have to wait for the next dice to become available.

Events will also offer additional dice rolls. These events will often run alongside the Black Spirit’s Adventure mode, so make sure to check out the Event notices during the Black Spirit’s Adventure period.

Black Spirit’s Special Dice
The Black Spirit has a multitude of die up his sleeve, and will occasionally let you take them for a spin. While these dice are generally given during events, stacking them up and using them at opportune times can allow you to drill down on the rewards you want to obtain. The following special die are available:

Arcana Cards
Arcana cards are special modifiers that are stored within an Arcana card storage. These cards shake up the game even more, with powerful effects that can almost skip the whole board!

Arcana card Description

Pace of Delight

Whenever you run out of dice and are unfortunately short of the square you want to reach, Pace of Delight is there for you!These cards will allow you to move between 1 and 6 spaces forward, depending on the number on the card.



If the specific square with the reward you want is 3 squares away, try using Pace of Delight +1 and a special die of (1,1) to gain the additional boost after acquiring the reward.

Lucky Day

Adds 1 to 3 additional remaining rolls in the Black Spirit’s Adventure.Having the Lucky Day Arcana gives you that reassuring feeling of being able to roll more dice before you need to finish!


However, it can only be used once to finish one board of Black Spirit’s Adventure. So, make sure to carefully consider when to use the additional chance!

Fated Encounter

Upon use, the number of Rolls to Finish resets and the Black Spirit returns to START.

If you weren’t able to finish and get the completion rewards or you passed by a square with a handsome reward, this Arcana will you reset the game from the beginning!

Nice Fluke

Upon use, receive 2 times more rewards for landing on a square.

If you think this is the perfect timing, use the Nice Fluke! Arcana giving you 2 times the rewards in the square you landed on! However, this only applies to squares that you landed to by throwing dice so you won’t be able to use it with Pace of Delight.

Clattering Rattle

Upon use, you will randomly obtain a dice that will be stored in your dice storage. You can get 1-3 basic dice or 1-2 special dice!Let’s say you run out of dice right before you finish. Then the Clattering Rattle is here to help you finish!

Cosmos Cataclysm

Upon use, the Black Spirit will randomly teleport to a square on the adventure board.

Try your luck by upending the cosmos and moving somewhere random on the adventure board



Try using the card right at the beginning. Who knows? Maybe you’ll end up right before the FINISH square!

Arcana’s can be obtained from events, landing on the CARD square on the adventure board, or through the Adona Rioblanc’s questline, ‘Friendly Astrologist’.

How do I access the Black Spirit’s Adventure?
You can begin Black Spirit’s Adventure by going to [Main Menu] → [Rewards] → [Black Spirit’s Adventure]

The newly added Adventurer’s Luck buffs are intended to widen your choices in choosing where to play according to your goals, instead of ensuring a steady income for defeating monsters.


This buff stacks with other ‘Item Drop Rate’ increasing effects, but its substantial silver cost should be considered also.

Just like the effect of the ‘Item Collection Increase Scroll’, this buff will not increase the number of vendor items dropped, but will increase the chances of other items dropping.

Buff Effect Price (Silver)
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck I Item Drop Rate +10% (60 min) 10,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck II Item Drop Rate +20% (60 min) 20,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck III Item Drop Rate +30% (60 min) 30,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck IV Item Drop Rate +40% (60 min) 40,000,000

Item Changes

● Changed Rift’s Fragments, obtainable on the Season Servers to form a Rift’s Echo, from character-bound to Family bound.

“Rift’s Fragments,” which combine into the Rift’s Echo item, are character-bound, and when “Fughar’s Timepiece” is used, these items couldn’t be moved to the new season character. To improve the fate of “Rift’s Fragments” unintentionally turning into junk loot, this update will change “Rift’s Fragments” to now be family-bound, and you’ll be able to access them through means such as the storage keeper to use them on a season character once more.

● Changed the PRI (I) Tuvala Main and Sub-weapon Boxes exchanged from PEN (V) Naru Main and Sub-weapons to now open immediately upon reciept, granting you a suitable weapon for your class.

Monster Changes

● Increased the lowest possible chance to obtain knowledge from defeating monsters in Balenos to Mediah by 10%

– However, the rates to learn knowledge from Shultz Guard monsters remains the same as before.

Gathering bits of knowledge as you grow stronger is one of the small pleasures of playing Black Desert. Especially some knowledge of certain monsters can be more difficult to learn, which may serve as a challenge to the collector within all of us. On the other hand, only by learning a certain monster’s knowledge will you be able to see their health in detail. Thus, some Adventurers have requested we provide an increase in the rate for learning knowledge to help new adventurers adjust better. In response, we have decided to increase the rate of learning knowledge for monsters up to the Mediah Territory. However, the Shultz Guard garrison is not a monster zone for novice adventurers, so they’ve been excluded. We will continue to look for better ways to provide support for New Adventurers.


Quest and Knowledge Changes
