Black Desert’s Mediah update is live today; so is the Cherry Blossom event

As promised, Black Desert’s Mediah expansion goes live today, and the patch notes are up on the official forums. There are new buyables in the cash shop, and a Cherry Blossom Event arrives to usher in spring (it runs to May 4th).

According to forumgoer SomeKRPerson via Dulfy, a Korean press conference has revealed approximate dates for the release of major updates for the western version:

  • April – Blader/Plum
  • May – Another pair of classes
  • June – Valencia and Awakening update

Yesterday’s launch trailer is tucked down below; stay tuned for our regular Black Desert column later today!

arktourosx This is a pretty paltry amount of silver.  I do not play Black Desert very hard, I’m not max level, and I easily have 750k silver.

n3rdbomb3r Twitticle rottenrotny I guess in a perfect (game) world I would prefer a system close to WoW’s. Where you can get many, many, MANY different types of items, that all have a (mostly) unique look and have stats, but also a wardrobe (or in this case transmog) system in place to allow aesthetic customization apart from the gear stats.
But yeah TSW’s system is much better than what they have going on in BDO too.
Of course BDO doesn’t have anything like that. It’s a pretty big turn off for me honesty

Twitticle rottenrotny yeah, unfortunately that’s the case with all the gear sets more or less. for Witch, Gurunil is our generic ‘BiS’ set up till boss gear, though there’s arguably some wiggle room depending on playstyle with Agerian/Tarotus, though that 2 gem socket is pretty hard to ignore ;p
As a fellow Witch player, I completely agree that the cosmetic sets for Witch outside of like… Karlstein chestpiece, even in the K-version, are pretty ‘meh’ bordering on ‘guhhh’. I’m wouldn’t get my hopes up at all in this regard, but it would be really nice if they adopted a similar cosmetic system to ‘The Secret World’, where gear = just stats, and visual appearance was a whole lot more free-form. Through lucky dye managed to make my lady somewhat decent looking but there really needs to be more variety :/

arktourosx Armsbend I’m kinda amused by the people who can’t help themselves and absolutely HAVE to respond

arktourosx Armsbend I always find the alienware one dumb from both sides. Like people need to realize it is trolling and just kind of shut up at the same time. Alienware is bought by people that want the support backend more than anything else and while it is dell there is at least better support than building it yourself if something goes wrong dell has to replace it within a time frame. The procedure if something goes wrong and troubleshooting it yourself can be time consuming and not something some people want to do. There are def better options for one, but i find it idiotic that it’s a meme in the first place, then again everything is turning into memes and retarded antics anymore…

squidgod2000 The sad thing is that “Alienware” is in there. Not so much that it’s in there but that people think it’s funny enough to keep talking about it the way they do. They’re like that comedian who gets up on stage and chokes, except he’s not choking, that’s his actual act and it’s just that bad.

My wizard looks like a prune, but I’m not sure what to expect from a ‘plum’.

Leilonii ThunderJackson tanek_09 Yeah, with the different Western mindset, that curve is going to spell trouble for the game here in the future.
What will happen is that the folks that are playing the game for the activities and atmosphere will eventually get to that very difficult content and not be at all equipped for it. Nor willing to do all the grinding or play all the RNG games to get geared for it. Those folks will just leave.
I suspect that’s a lot of folks. I don’t necessarily advocate changing it, but seeing how things eventually play out should be interesting.

DeadlyAccurate Eh, I have to try and be efficient almost every day in real life. I refuse to try and play my games like they’re work too. I’ve got 100/100 energy right now and I’m not going to use one bit of it today. :P

Lethality Silverlock Have you gotten your fame above level 2 anywhere? I’m level 2 in Balenos and Serendia and level 1 in Calpheon. So it could be either quests or amity or both that effect it.
