Ongoing Issues


Serendia Issue from 1st day of head start; compensation is still being worked on.

Pet Breeding is disabled as the system is being revamped, once complete it will be enabled.

Due to the increased "goldseller" population, we are beginning to put systems in place to suppress their market.


Players were able to abuse an exploit that allowed trading any amount of silver it through Potions.  

Payer A could purchase potions, trade them with Player B and B could sell them back to the NPC to gain silver out of it. (or other items)


Items traded 1:1 will become character bound and can not be sold anymore to the NPC, nor used for professions such as crafting/alchemy/cooking anymore (character bound)


After maintenance we will also offer the coupon to NA players who played on the 28th February between 08:00 UTC (opening) and 18:00 UTC (fixing the Serendia Issue) to submit a request for a "Character Name Swap between 2 existing characters" (Coupon can be found in the ACCOUNT tab on the website)


You may register your request on that page for swapping the names of two existing characters within the same region.

You must have two existing characters within the same region to be able to register a 'name swap'.

Registration will open latest by end of 11th March and close  March 23rd at 08:00 UTC.

Name Swap will be applied on March 30th during the maintenance.

If a character, for which a 'name swap' has been registered is deleted within this process time, your request will fail and your coupon will be consumed.

Only one 'name swap' will be provided. A failed coupon will not be reimbursed.

Only your character's names will be swapped. This doesn't affect your character's progression.

Note: Please make sure the chosen names are correct. After your confirmation this process is irreversible!

About Black Desert PVE and PVP

If you like PVE, Black Desert is not the game for you. BDO is a sandbox game and is only really good for exploring, playing the economy, and PVP. I played the Korean version and it was a super grindfest with the most basic questing of "go here and kill x of these."
