Seoul, South Korea—July 8, 2020—Pearl Abyss announced today that a variety of features have arrived in this week’s update for Black Desert SEA that offers valuable rewards for Adventurers. They can now collect these rewards to have more options to make their characters stronger! 


Rich Merchant’s Ring, viewed as the most precious item in the eyes of marketplace directors all across the continent, has been revamped. This will become a must-have item for those who are looking for precious treasures, especially now that the revamped ring will apply a 5% Market Tax Reduction effect, which is a special benefit that cannot be found anywhere else in the game.   


In addition, the Adventure Log “Pavino Greko’s Book of Miscellaneous Matters” has been introduced. Adventurers who are level 56 or higher can now complete this new log by accepting the relevant quests from the Black Spirit. Moreover, Adventurers can participate in the dice rolling and Hot Time events to obtain valuable rewards that will also help enhance their gameplay.  


Furthermore, the first round of the Cross-Server Conquest War was held at Calpheon Castle in the Southeast Asia and the Thailand servers on July 5. Although the Southeast Asia guild was on offense and the Thai guild was playing defense, the Thai guild ultimately prevailed and won the battle. The match was live-streamed on the official Twitch channel, which attracted 14,000 viewers across the world. The second round of the war will be held on July 12.
