Black Desert adds sailboat quest, drop rate tweaks, and way more polar bears

Pull out your ancient “I’m on a boat” and “you are a pirate” memes because Black Desert is about to give you reason to venture out on the high seas, questing for a sailboat in prep for the January 28th arrival of big baddie Vell.

“The scribes expect Vell ‘The Heart of the Sea’ to arrive very soon in Magorian waters. To prepare for this event, Adventurers are called to prepare themselves and do the quests required to rent an Old Bartali Sailboat. This fine vessel will not hold forever but is more than capable to engage this new upcoming threat.”

Have I mentioned that BDO patch notes are my favorite? Here’s why: “An increase in the polar bear population is expected after some cubs have been spotted hiding in boxes” and “the chance of gaining Knowledge when defeating Grass Hedgehogs have been increased.”

Also of note in this week’s minipatch is a change to drop rates, which grants those with high ecology knowledge better loot drop rates.

Amazes me how the Asian MMOs can do boating so well (ArcheAge too) and western ones so epically fail at that feature.

Glad I spent the first year dumping energy into grind nodes. Figured they would do this eventually.

Not a huge fan of the RNG boxes being added to the game for certain pets.

I do, however, love the knowledge changes from last week and this week. Being able to upgrade tiers of knowledge and now having those upgrades benefit you is pretty awesome.

I started in the SEA version of BDO yesterday (im from EU)… feeling pretty good but remains to be seen if the hype carries… :D

Just remember it’s a marathon not a race.

It’s easy to get discouraged by the failures today and quit before the successes of tomorrow.
