Black Desert Online - CM_Yukimura


Greetings Adventurers,

With Spooktober in progress, we bring you Halloween and New Great Expedition events.
Rumor has it that Afuaru is now dropping more valuable items. Some seasoned adventurers report that a mysterious quest in O’dyllita will let you obtain Garmoth’s Heart, others said that you can now craft the legendary La Orzeca outfit to protect yourself from Hadum.
Finally, they also reported sightings of a powerful version of Kzarka and a new Alustin’s Alchemy Log.

For more information about this patch and the spooky Halloween and Great Expedition event, read on!

  • Nightmarish Kzarka
Kzarka, bereft of his soul by Illezra who brought the Three Days of Darkness upon Mediah, has begun to consume the adventurers who stand in the way of his Ritual of Resurrection. On the days his rage reaches its peak, he plunges into rage as "Nightmarish Kzarka" and darkness shrouds the skies of Serendia.
  • During the appearance of Nightmarish Kzarka, a greater darkness shrouds Serendia. The Lord of Serendia is looking for powerful adventurers who can vanquish this darkness.
  • Nightmarish Kzarka is much more powerful than the regular Kzarka but he will drop more valuable loot. You can obtain up to TET (IV) Kzarka Main Weapon (+0, I, II, III, IV) and also have an increased chance of getting Belongings of an Adventurer, Gold Bar (up to 1KG), or a type of Magical Black Stone.
  • [Weekly] Trophy: Kzarka quest and Season Pass quest of defeating Kzarka will not be completed when you defeat him as Nightmarish Kzarka is a unique monster.
[/list]
Known to many by the title "KeeezAaannng!", the World Boss Kzarka will now occasionally appear in a new form. The newly created Nightmarish Kzarka comes back with a force to reclaim its fame as being the first World Boss of Black Desert. The renewal of a World Boss was quite a challenge to us as adventurers had been asking about it for quite some time now. We didn't want to radically change things by shooting up the difficulty levels so we decided to make Nightmarish Kzarka appear by chance and retained some of the experience with the Kzarka we are familiar with. (We have plans to renew other World Bosses as well but we might approach it differently from how we've handled Kzarka. Ex) Boss appearing only during the evening, or only appearing when a group of adventurers join forces together.) Nightmarish Kzarka will drop better loot compared to the regular Kzarka. But beware, as Nightmarish Kzarka is much more challenging than its previous form.


▲ (Left) Nightmarish Kzarka appears as it deals AoE damage / (Right) Kzarka opening up a series of attacks and AoE damage as a pattern


▲ (Left) Roaring, and attacking with black breath / (Right) An attack pattern in which nearby targets are pulled and dealt with a powerful blow


▲ (Left) Tentacle Summoning attack patterns (You will receive a movement speed/attack speed debuff upon hit) / (Right) A berserk pattern that brings down chaos

※ Images were taken using a GM character which is invincible to attacks.
  • La Orzeca Outfit
    Viorencia Odore, the queen of the Arid Land of O'dyllita, announced that she would grant the Orzeca relic known as the La Orzeca Outfit to whoever brings her Quturan's Lungs, the Divine Tree of the fallen Ancient Orzeca Kingdom.
    • The La Orzeca Outfit was a gear made in Orzeca long ago, in order to protect those from the grips of Hadum. It was created by instilling the powers of the Thornwood goddess into the incarnation of greed.
    • The powers of the Thornwood goddess were extracted from the gear and into Quturan's Lungs when Orzeca met its demise. the Divine Tree. Since then, its whereabouts have been unknown. According to the Ahibs, recently, it can be found from the Monster Zones below.


    • Collect the leaves affected by the powers of the Quturan's Lungs and unite them together into a single source of power. These leaves have a higher chance to drop than the lungs.
    • ※ Perform Simple Alchemy on Quturan's Black Leaf to obtain Quturan's Left Lung, and on Quturan's Ashen Leaf to obtain Quturan's Right Lung.
    • Right-click on the lungs to begin a story quest which is available once per family. At the later stages of the quest, you can obtain the La Orzeca Helmet with Quturan's Left Lung, and the La Orzeca Armor with Quturan's Right Lung.
    • You can obtain the La Orzeca Outfit through NPCs by exchanging additional Quturan's Lungs you obtain.
    • Once you have completed all the La Orzeca Helmet and La Orzeca Armor quests, you'll be given a final quest through the Black Spirit in which you can obtain the "La Orzeca" title.

La Orzeca Outfit is the very first outfit in the game that can be obtained through loots. Its design was based on the ancient theme (Black Spirit concept) along with added effects and an exclusive title once it is crafted. This outfit has been aimed for adventurers who are at a fairly advanced level and hope to distinguish themselves aesthetically. We hope this outfit can become another exciting goal for adventurers to seek out as it is unique not only in its look but also in the adventures you must overcome to claim it as yours. We did consider adding special effects to the La Orzeca Outfit but we decided not to as it should be an optional challenge instead of a compulsory one. Hence, the outfit will have normal effects just like other regular outfits.
  • Perilla’s Star
    Perilla is the former love of Fughar, the Chief Manager of the Crow Merchants Guild. The once lost Perilla's Star she left behind for Fughar has reappeared for adventurers to explore.
    • Accept the quest "[Perilla's Star] Fughar's Woe" from the Black Spirit. The quest unravels Fughar's tragic love story of how Perilla left him and how he had to work hard to escape from his poverty-striken circumstances.
    • The "[Perilla's Star] Fughar's Woe" quest can be obtained by Season Characters or normal characters converted from Season Characters.
    • Complete the [Perilla's Star] Fughar's Woe quest line to receive Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon, which can be used to exchange for Perilla's Star.
  • Autumn Season Early Graduation Starts
    Behind every great feat is a special reward. Meet <Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager> Fughar to apply for Autumn Season's Early Graduation!
    • Adventurers who've met the Early Graduation requirements between Oct 21 (after maintenance) to Nov 18 (before maintenance) can go to Fughar and receive the “[Season Server Graduation] At the Crossroad” quest to begin your graduation early.

※ AP and DP from Adventure Logs do not count towards this requirement.
※ Check for more details in our GM notes about the [Autumn Season Early Graduation] post.
※ Please note that you will no longer be able to enjoy our Autumn Season related events, contents, and Season Server benefits once you graduate early.
※ You cannot enhance Tuvala weapons by converting them with a Conversion Stone after Early Graduation.
  • The completion record of all "[Enhancement] Even Stronger Tuvala Gear" weekly quests has been reset.
  • Added Rift's Echo as a Season Server weekly quest reward for defeating monsters.
    • Adventurers who have already completed Season Server weekly quests can reaccept the quests again after the October 21st maintenance.
    • As a reminder, these weekly quests can be found under "[Enhancement] Even Stronger Tuvala Gear" tab in the Quests (O) window.
    • You can accept and complete one of the following quests once per family each week.
    • The Rift's Echo will be given in addition to the Time-filled Black Stone x600 or Tuvala Ore x90 or Refined Magical Black Stone x40 rewards you can choose from for completing the weekly quests.
  • Added Alustin's Alchemy Journal in the Adventure Logs.
    • This log holds records of Alustin, the famous alchemist of Velia.
    • This Adventure Log becomes available once you reach level 61 and complete [O'dyllita] Keepsake of Ataraxia, and accept and complete Adventure Log: Alustin's Alchemy Journal from the Black Spirit.
    • Complete the objectives to obtain a large number of Caphras Stones.

  • Queen Brolina of Kamasylvia has answered a villager's appeal from Grána and has imported dairy cows from their ally, Calpheon, to start a farm.
    • The farm is located at the west of Grána.
    • The farm is managed by <Dreaming Shepherd> Rosaria the Papu. You can also meet Povios, the Xian Merchant from Calpheon there.
    • Povios is only available to players who’ve completed the renewed Kamasylvia main quest line.

We’ve had many requests from adventurers asking about adding dairy cows to Valencia City and O’draxxia. Matters are being discussed and decisions haven't been made but it seems there's a good chance that discussions will end up with Valencia City having camels added instead of dairy cows, due to the regional environment.
  • Changed the Black Desert Team's entrance and revival point of Castle Ruins in the Red Battlefield so that it is not too close to the castle walls.
[System]
  • For Europe, Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, October 25 at 03:00 local standard time (or 02:00 CET) for Europe.
    • Changes to Node/Conquest Wars and world boss spawns for EU servers will take into effect starting with October 28 regular maintenance.
    • The starting and ending times for Node/Conquest War and the Tribute Wagon departure time were pushed backward by 1 hour for our European servers due to the start of daylight saving time.
    • This simply means your Node/Conquest Wars will start at 20:00 CET, and Tribute Wagons will depart at 18:00 CET.
  • For North America, Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 1 at 02:00 local standard time (or 01:00 PST) for Europe.

    • This simply means your Node/Conquest Wars will start at 18:00 PST/21:00 EST, and Tribute Wagons will depart at 16:00 PST/19:00 EST.
  • Fixed the issue where the game client would sometimes stop when using Epheria Carrack's FocusFire skill (Q or E).


[Game World]
  • Changed the Quarry lighting to be brighter to increase efficiency of Quarry workers for the sake of Marco Faust, the Lord of Keplan who is suffering from sickness in Calpheon.
[Coming Next Week]
  • Certain areas in Bartali Farm will be adjusted with next week's October 28, 2020 regular maintenance (Please check the future announcement for details).
    • As a result, any garden fences and crops planted in this area will be removed and moved to Heidel Storage.
    • Therefore, we ask you to move any installed garden fences from this location before next maintenance on October 28, 2020 since any remaining crops will have their growth reset. We thank you for your understanding in advance.
[NPC]
  • Updated the exchange list of Philaberto Falasi of Port Epheria.
    • You can exchange the Epheria Sailboat Design with the Epheria Frigate design or vice versa through the quest "[Daily] Falasi Family's Kindness."

[By Class]

Witch

Wizard

Striker
  • Fixed the unnatural facial expressions made during the use of Crouching Wolf and Succession: Crouching Wolf.
Hashashin
  • Added Hashashin to Trial Characters.



  • Added furniture items obtainable from sea creatures.
    • You can craft Ocean Stalker Chandelier and Nineshark Chandelier at level 3 Furniture Workshops of Calpheon, Epheria, and Florin using items collected from sea creatures.

  • For details on the newly added Pearl Shop Update, please click < Here > !
[/list]


  • Gatekeepers of Crescent Shrine, Desert Naga Temple, Titium Valley, and Cadry Ruins have obtained great power through the Argos blood ritual.
    • The gatekeepers now use more deadly attacks as they have been strengthened by the blood ritual.
    • They will also sometimes endure mortal wounds and retreat back to their territory nearby to heal themselves.
    • They will disappear if they are given enough time to recuperate in their territory. Defeat them before they can recover to obtain their loot.
    • You can obtain "Intricately Patterned Mystical Shard" and other valuable items by defeating these enhanced gatekeepers.
    • Increased respawn time for these gatekeepers once they have been defeated.
      You now receive notification when these gatekeepers appear.
  • Rumor has it that Graverobber Afuaru wanders in certain regions carrying more valuable items.
    • Defeating monsters in Thornwood Forest, Tunkuta, Olun's Valley, Crypt of Resting Thoughts, and Ash Forest has a chance to spawn Graverobber Afuaru.
    • Increased the value of the items that Graverobber Afuaru drops at Roud Sulfur Mine, Pila Ku Jail, Hystria Ruins, Aakman Temple, Navarn Steppe, Manshaum Forest, Tshira Ruins, Sherekhan Necropolis, Tooth Fairy Forest (Forest Ronaros), and Blood Wolf Settlement.
    • There is a chance to obtain a very precious item by defeating Graverobber Afuaru in certain regions.
Graverobber Afuaru was created as a refreshing element in combat for adventurers while defeating monsters. However, we felt that it wasn't interesting enough so we've made changes so that treasure materials drop at a very low rate in regions where treasures can be found, and added it to O'dyllita.
  • Changed the indicated zone of attack on the ground to be more accurate when Ahib Griffon, appearing in the Dark Rift, uses its whirlwind attacks.
  • Fixed issue where Apostle of Immorality would not react to the player or exist in the correct spawn point at Star's End.
    Partially changed how Apostle of Malevolence appears to make the relevant fix above.


[Quest]
  • A new record about the ancient kingdom Orzeca has been discovered in O'dyllita's Crypt of Resting Thoughts.

    Queen Viorencia Odore has announced that she would grant the Resplendent Moonlight Chest to whoever helps decipher the Orzeca's Records: Time of Dragons. Rumors say that people have seen the radiant light illuminating from this Resplendent Moonlight Chest, a kind of light only seen in that of a dragon's heart.
    • You can accept the quest "Orzeca's Records: Time of Dragons" from Black Eyeroot of the Crypt of Resting Thoughts, with a character who has completed the quest "[O'dyllita] Vuhura Kaheliak" from "[Lv.60 O'dyllita I] Flower of the Burning Moon" questline.
    • This quest is only available once per family.
    • Complete all 14 missions after completing the quest "Orzeca's Records: Time of Dragons" to be blessed by Queen Viorencia. However, this will not be an easy challenge.
    • Open the Resplendent Moonlight Chest to obtain Inverted Heart of Garmoth.
Many treasure items are awaiting to be found by adventurers in the world of Black Desert. Garmoth's Heart, which has certainly been the biggest center of attention, is a treasure that directly affects your equipment level, making adventurers very anxious to obtain it. To help relatively new adventurers dive into this race, we aimed to create a system where patient and constant efforts in the long-term was a requirement in attaining this item. Black Desert will continue to discuss ways to encourage participation from adventurers of different passion to be included in our future.
  • Fixed the issue where the Black Spirit would be summoned automatically even when there was no extra quest you could accept while doing a main quest.


  • Fixed the issue where colors wouldn't be applied when a line break was added to the Enhancement Success/Failure text in the chat window.
  • Adjusting the Adventurer Name Settings will now affect the settings of the name that is displayed in NPC dialogues and Party notification messages.
  • Increased the RMB speed in the following situations:
    • When retrieving or taking out an item from the Inventory
    • When selling an item at the Shop
  • Added a button to immediately enter a min and max price in the Guild Contract.
  • Added more information about life skill level requirements for fishing in the tooltip of the fish during auto-fishing.
  • Changed to display the required Contribution points and available contribution points for each list while checking the item list that can be rented with Contribution Points by talking to an NPC.
  • Fixed the issue where the quest name would bleed out of the Quest (O) window when it was too long.
  • Fixed the issue where the item message would be different from the chat window message when obtaining a treasure item.
  • Fixed the Guild Member Status list's menu buttons to fit within the screen.
  • Fixed the Appoint buttons to be placed together in the Guild Member Status list's menu buttons.
  • Fixed so that Ban feature cannot be designated as a hotkey in the Guild Member Status list.
  • Fixed the issue where the contract would reappear when an Advisor renews his/her own contract.
  • Fixed the imbalance in Quartermaster and Cannoneer text arrangement in the Guild Member Status list.
[/list]

  • Fixed the issue where the messages of obtaining, successfully enhancing, or failing to enhance the Fallen God's Armor would be displayed as "Fallen God's Armor" in the chat window.
  • Fixed the Fallen God's Armor to be displayed correctly in the Web Central Market.
  • [Hashashin] Fixed the graphical issue with the gloves that occurred when equipping Domtur Gloves and Mezari Armor together.

  • [Dark Knight] Fixed the graphical issue with the hair when equipping the Arethel Outfit with the Yianaros Headpiece already on.
  • [Mystic] Fixed the graphical issue with the neck after setting the game to Remastered mode.

Content
  • Added two new Guild positions.
    *The new "Advisor" position was added to assist the Guild Master. Most of the Guild Master duties will be granted to the Advisor.
    • The Advisor will have all rights excluding Disband Guild, Guild Auction House, Request the Final Battle (or to accept it), Reset Guild Skills, and rights to destroy Guild Mounts.
    • There can only be one Advisor in a Guild, regardless of the Guild size.
    • The Advisor can use Guild Crafting.
    • The Advisor can distribute Allowance and Bonuses.
    • The Advisor can increase Guild Protection Capacity, and can also enable or disable it.
    • The Advisor can carry out Guild Contract Renewals for himself/herself and also for the Guild Officer, Quartermaster, and normal Guild Members.
      The Advisor can obtain and use all Guild skills, and can use Battle Command to Gather. However, if the Guild Master is online, they can only be used within the same server.
      *The new "Cannoneer" position was added to actively play a role in starting Guild Wars, as the position is intended to be specialized in Node/Conquest War rights.
    • There can be multiple Cannoneers in a Guild, regardless of the Guild size.
    • The Cannoneer can install annexes during Node/Conquest Wars just like the Quartermaster.
    • The Cannoneer can purchase Node/Conquest War goods at the Guild Shop using the allowance provided by the Guild.
  • The rights for the following Guild positions were changed.
    • The rights to destroy Guild Mounts (Galley and Elephant) used to be given to Guild Officers or higher positions. These rights will now only be given to the Guild Master.
    • The rights to equip/unequip gear for Guild Mounts used to be given to Quartermasters or higher positions. These rights will now only be given to the Guild Master and Advisor.
      *However, repairs for the equipped gear will only be possible through Guild Officers or higher positions like before.

    • The Appoint Master button becomes available to the Advisor and Officer(s) if the Guild Master hasn't logged in for 15 days.
    • Any guild member can deposit into the Guild Storage, but only certain guild positions may retrieve from the Guild Storage.
    • Any ranking guild member may install/uninstall annexes for nodes, but Guild Officers or higher positions may use the annex's function to begin the process.
    • Guild members of Advisor or higher positions may summon the guild boss Khan for Guild Boss Subjugation, while other bosses require guild Officer or higher positions to summon.
    • Any guild member can purchase in the guild shop within their set allowance, but specific items will be restricted to certain conditions.
We've added the new Advisor and Cannoneer guild positions.

The Advisor position is granted even greater authority than the Guild Officer position, as the Advisor can even renew Guild Officer contracts. Guild Masters can appoint their most trusted Officer as an Advisor, and so we've added this position in hoping that it will allow for more flexible and convenient guild management.

Cannoneers are quite important for a guild that enjoys Node/Conquest Wars. We've added the Cannoneer position not only to identify that appointed guild member as the Cannoneer, but to grant them some bragging rights, too.

Greetings Adventurers!

The long awaited new area, O’dyllita is finally open for you to explore!

For those adventurers who want to know more and to those who enjoy the thrills of an adventure, follow us as we embark on an adventure into O’dyllita!

Before we begin our journey,
please make sure you’ve completed the requirements to venture into O’dyllita.

  1. Are you at or above level 60?
  2. Have you finished the quest [Lv. 58 Kamasylvia] The Light of Kamasylve?



If you’ve answered yes to both of the above, you’re all set to go!

Now, to take your first step into O’dyllita, please accept the main quest [Lv.60 O'dyllita I] Flower of the Burning Moon.

If you wish to enter O’dyllita without progressing the main quest, go to Node Manager Aliluna at Thornwood Castle and Node Manager Honti at Shiv Valley Road to receive sub-quests with which you can obtain most of the NPC Knowledges available in O’dyllita.

However, O’dyllita is a very closed society, so you’ll only be able to obtain all NPC Knowledges by progressing through the main quest line. For instance, you won’t be able to obtain Knowledges of the Queen of O’dyllita and her followers if you do not do the main quests.

Therefore, we recommend you complete the main quest line of O’dyllita to make your adventure through the region much more enjoyable!

ːhappybsː Tip! Don’t be scared by the recommended AP of the new Monster Zones of O’dyllita!

The only monsters you need to face during the main quest line are the ones in Manshaum Forest of Kamasylvia.

So if you’ve completed the main quest line of Kamasylvia, you’ll do just fine with the O’dyllita main quests!

And here we are!

The capital city of O’dyllita, O’draxxia.


Let’s take a look around the city.

Why don’t we visit the queen first?



We present to you the ruler of O’dyllita, Queen Viorencia Odore.

Here’s the message from the queen, so listen well!

You, who have been chosen by both the light and shadow!
Welcome to O’dyllita, the promised land of the burning ones, the Ahib.
There are no heroes in this land.
All of us here are barbarians, warriors,
and shadows hidden in the Arid Land.
We are preparing to unveil poison and fangs against the greater darkness approaching us!
Are you prepared to join the gruesome journey ahead?
We wait for the day the darkness hidden in the world's shadow
is purified into another darkness that blooms from our Mother's wrath...


Gruesome... Journey?

We’ll let you take the lead when we tour the Monster Zones later on...
Not that we’re scared, of course! We just prefer to be where we can see everything better!

Anyway, feeling a little peckish? We are!
How about we catch some fish and cook up something to eat?

Hey, look over there! Those pink flowers! You see them?



They only grow in O’dyllita! It’s called Delotia.

Well, we guess this is a great moment to introduce you to the new gathering items of O’dyllita.


[Delotia]


[Thornwood]


[Moonlight Stone]

These three are the new gatherable items in O’dyllita.
Delotia is a plant that grows in the O’draxxia region and can be gathered with Bare Hands or with a Hoe.
Also, the spiky Thornwood grows surprisingly well in barren lands where droughts are common.
Lastly, mine the Moonlight Stone with a Pickaxe to obtain Nickel Ore.
Well, we think we’ve learned enough of the new gatherable items!

Let’s continue on to fishing.

How about here? Plenty of space for us to haul in some nice fish!
Now how about we finally do some fishing and eat lunch?
By the way, don’t worry about the fish going bad while carrying it back for cooking.
Fish in O’dyllita stay fresh for a longer period than fish caught in other regions!

Did you catch anything you like?
While you’re busy cooking the fish, let us introduce you to some of the delicacies of O’dyllita!



Delotia Juice, Delotia Milk Tea, Delotia Tart...
As you can see, a lot of O’dyllita’s cuisine is made from ingredients found only in O’dyllita.
Please check their recipes for more details on how to cook them!

While we’re at it, let me introduce you to some Elixirs of O’dyllita.



You can tell from their names the effects they have...
While others... Well you’ll have to find out for yourself!

Other than the Elixirs we just showed you, some new Elixirs, Draughts, and Perfumes with Immortal power were discovered in O’dyllita as well!

Immortal: Beast's Draught
Immortal: Giant's Draught
Immortal: Savage Draught
Immortal: Frenzy Draught
Immortal: Spirit Perfume Elixir
Immortal: Perfume of Courage
Immortal: Khalk's Elixir
Immortal: Elixir of Deep Sea

The Immortal word on these items mean that their effects are maintained even when you die! Amazing, eh?
We think we’ve seen most of what we can around town.

Now let’s head onwards to Monster Zones! Ready?



Adventurers! As shown on the map, there are four Monster Zones here.
The first is the Tunkuta monster zone where a 2-player party is recommended. It's where the Tunta worshipping Turos trample around.



Wait, do you hear it? This music!

This piece is called VIII. O'dyllita: Field Theme #14 Clouds of War.
Whenever we hear it, we feel like a bunch of monsters will charge at me at any moment! So good!
Right, the Tunkuta Monster Zone. The Turos, these large bovine creatures, have immense endurance and boast powerful strength, but they like to keep apart from each other, so don’t worry about fighting many at the same time.

Find yourself an adventurer and charge into the Turos!

We also hear you can obtain materials for the new Elixirs there, so don’t miss it!

Oh wait...


Turo's Belt

This is a belt you can obtain from the Monster Zones of O’dyllita.
And there are Turos in Tunkuta...

That must mean you can get Turo's Belt in Tunkuta!
Well, we hope you congratulate each other if you get it, no matter who gets it first.

This is not all, there are some more items you can only get in Tunkuta.
Flame of Despair and Embers of Despair are crucial in crafting Fallen God's Armor!

Alas, Flame of Despair has a very low drop rate. However, do not despair because you can exchange some Embers of Despair for one!
Promise us you’ll show me the Fallen God's Armor if you acquire a Flame of Despair and craft it!

Next is Olun's Valley. As you can see from the map, this is for a party of 3.



Huh? What is this ominous tune?
What you’re hearing now is VIII. O'dyllita: Field Theme #11 Escalating Tension. Such a fitting title, isn’t it?
Every single monster in Olun's Valley is extremely powerful. One misstep could be the end of you. That said, the golems of Olun's Valley are slow and predictable, so it will get easier once you get the hang of it.
Do remember that the goal of defeating Olun's Statue is to survive with your party members through coordination and concentration.
Here are the 3 things you need to know to survive in Olun's Valley!

▶ Move with caution.
▶ Concentrate on coordination and defense.
▶ Don’t be greedy.


And here’s the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.



We hear the Crypt of Resting Thoughts is the hardest zone out there, even harder than Ash Forest!
Last but not least, Thornwood Forest, a zone controlled by the Fallen Ahib.



If you’re the kind of adventurer who likes Hystria Ruins or Aakman Temple, Thornwood Forest is the zone for you!
The Ahibs here are susceptible to CC status effects. I believe a skilled adventurer like yourself should know what to do.

Also, you can obtain Ominous Ring and Specter's Energy from Thornwood Forest.


Ominous Ring

Finally, there is a new ring to be discovered! Can’t wait to find out what it does!

You can get Specter's Energy from a lot of places, but monsters of Thornwood Forest have a higher chance to drop it.

Remember the Blackstar Armor you can craft with Specter's Energy?
Well, now the Blackstar Helmet is available for crafting too!


Blackstar Helmet

The method to craft a Blackstar Helmet is similar to the process of crafting a Blackstar Armor, so why not give it a try?




The design screams power, doesn’t it?

Lastly, there’s a new function to help you become an even more powerful adventurer!
Now you can add Crystals to your Awakening Weapon.

Use Inverted Heart of Garmoth to upgrade a Dandelion or a Dragon Slayer Awakening Weapon to be able to add 2 Crystals on them.


Ah'krad Crystal

Olucas' Crystal

Materials to craft these Crystals can be obtained from various Monster Zones of O’dyllita.
Now, the final part of our tour.

Let's complete [O'dyllita] Caphras' Journal from the main quest tab.



Now we can all learn more about the Immortal Alchemist, Caphras and begin the Adventure Log, "Caphras' Record" along with it.
What’s that? You only have up to Volume 2?
That’s correct! It’s all we have right now! Only some parts of the records of Caphras the Immortal Alchemist have been discovered. The location of the rest is still a mystery!

Let's all hope the rest can be found soon!

▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬ ▬▬

How was our little tour of O’dyllita?

What’s the first thing you want to try or see?
We personally want to catch those fish that last longer...
And go into new Monster Zones to craft the magnificent Blackstar Helmet...
Or maybe go and fight Garmoth to upgrade my awakening weapon...

Nevertheless, there are so many things to do in O'dyllita so take a journey today!

O'dyllita, the land of darkness, is a step closer to revealing its ancient secrets.

A place which holds the stories of the immortal alchemist, Caphras, and the Ahib that were banished out of Kamasylvia due to their frantic vendetta.

Listen to "VIII. O'dyllita: Field Theme #4 Lament of the Ahib" and experience the lament of the Ahibs as you take in the scenery of O'dylitta. The violin in this piece expresses the sadness and passion of the Ahibs who were driven out of Kamasylvia.



Also, don't forget that we are offering the following drop rate boost events in-game currently that run until October 7 (before maintenance)!

  • Drop rate of Remnants of the Rift items from the Dark Rift doubled.
  • Drop rate of Specter's Energy will be increased in the following areas:
    - Sherekhan Necropolis
    - Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone)

The highly-desired Blackstar gear requires materials like Remnants of the Rift and Specter's Energy to be crafted. Take advantage of the drop rate boosts for defeating monsters during the event period to help you get your Blackstar gear and suit up for O'dyllita.

O'dyllita arrives October 7, 2020 so please stay tuned!
