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.

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.

While the game has alot going for it, the combat interface is not conducive to my physical health.  As such my play time is limited and my combat gameplay quite reduced.

arktourosx Twitticle What would be fun is if the eventual bounty system will reveal the name of the players who have bounties placed on their head.  Otherwise the Ghille Suits would have an even greater advantage to evade bounties.

Vikaernes Sure, if i want to filter an insult, i have to filter “idiot”, “IDIOT”, “Idiot”, etc. And obviously, some genius will try to bypass the filter with boring stuff like “IdIoT”, “IDiot”, etc. Really useful lol.

The latter is only a matter of time.

Armsbend Basically you find a topic people are incapable of correcting others about.  So like “WOW is the first MMO” you’re going to get a bunch of people pushing their glasses up and saying, “Actually technically the first MMO was…”  The same thing happens when you say, “Alienware is the best PC” you’re going to get a bunch of people to chime in and start going on this giant explanation how you can get a PC for 1/100th of the price of an Alienware yada yada.

karmamule karmamule I know, but the problem with goldspammers is that if you start filtering their shit, you still have to fight with shit like G*O*L*D, G☆O☆L☆D, G♥O♥L♥D etc… It’s a lost war.

arktourosx If I only have about 5 minutes before bed to run in and grab my loyalty points, then I might as well use my energy to get an energy potion. I don’t normally play where I look for the best or most effective way of achieving a goal. I just play however I feel at the time, so I’m not interested in maximizing my efficiency.

Was talking about the D.C. cherry blossoms/festival. Walked down to the Mall on Saturday, took one look at the clusterfuck that was the tidal basin, said “fuck that,” turned around and went home.

That said I probably will block “nyaa” or whatever those anime dudes always put in their chat.  That just needs to straight up go.

Armsbend squidgod2000 Just another tired meme that wasn’t funny in the first place. “Alienware is the best computer”, “WoW was the first MMO”, “Chuck Norris blahblahblah”, “Anal [link item]”.
I turned off global chat within my first 10 minutes of the game and never looked at it again.

squidgod2000 No, no, no.  A large part of Japan’s past and current culture is tied to the fleeting beauty of that tree when it flowers.  It’s symbol is pervasive everywhere in Japan.  For the three weeks or so when it flowers and then again when its petals fall like snowflakes it is one of the most beautiful trees on this planet.  Gorgeous bark and a nice summer leaf as well.

It is perfection.

enamelizer Silverlock If you listen to the rhetoric being played out today you’d be a fool to think this wouldn’t happen again in the very near future.

Personally I sincerely prefer the company of trees over human beings.  I care more about those Cherry Blossoms.

Twitticle It’s basically a struggle between two hyperbolic arguments.

The first side goes on how the suit is no big deal and it provides zero advantage and here watch this video of a guy flashing bright red and white over and over again.  Of course they conveniently leave out that the guy is flashing bright red/white in the middle of an open road where you’d legally have to be blind to miss that there’s a player there.
The other side goes on how the suit is hugely P2W and there’s GvG guilds out there who require members to buy the suit to be competitive in PvP and won’t recruit people who don’t have suits.  Of course you never actually see any messages where people require ghillie suits in their recruitment message.

Personally I’m somewhere in the middle.  It’s obviously a P2W item that provides an advantage but it doesn’t really shine except in certain terrains/scenarios.  The night in a forest is probably peak efficiency for the thing on a high mobility class.  That said most of PvP really comes down to gearing between each person and the ability to hide your nameplate as an advantage isn’t so powerful to overcome that.

Twitticle I make it sound easy, but it’s a big stretch from 130-150.  I had to buy cheap items off the AH (Elsh weapons) and then enchant them up to +7 then get my stones back for the +Enchantment Success titles to hit 150 in the end.
