This week’s Black Desert update is officially upon us. Its key feature is a new guild boss, the Ahib Griffon, plus “several new Balenos Hunting Quests and Monsters for players to engage in the pursuit of fame and glory.” The Gear Purification NPC is also brand-new today.

“Revisions to the gear enhancement system are underway, the first to arrive is the much anticipated Gear Purification NPC, allowing players to downgrade equipment for a nominal fee. In addition to this, the recently introduced Renown Score system has been included, granting a variety of new bonuses to work towards. To make finding your equipment even easier, we’ve added the ability to view all individual storages at each city from local Storage Keepers.”

Players should also expect the new “renown score,” new titles, storage conveniences, new dailies, new baddies, easier guild kicks, a big boost to PvP damage and crowd control skills, and bird meat for you folks who fancy eating seagull.

So, can anyone who plays this explain why decreasing the Enhancement Level of your gear is such a desired feature?

Because by degrading a +15 item to +14 again you can keep attempting to failstack without destroying the +15 (to get some black stones back) or being forced to use the +16-+20 version of the black stones that are much more expensive and rare. (Failstacks raise your chance of successful enchants and are needed in larger numbers as you advance your enchantment level, you can still advance gear without failstacks, but doing that past a certain enchant level is risky because failure will degrade your gear ex:failing a tri (+18) enchant will leave you with a pri (+16) piece of gear. Accessories straight up blow up if you fail to enchant them at all at any level)

I always like to play ranged dps in a game and I always like to play male characters . The reason I could never get into this game is that there is no ranged male dps apart from the wizard ( which doesn’t appeal to me much ) .

There’s been files for male ranger outfits datamined, so people are hopeful that will be the next class released!

I find it funny that the game is getting these rapid fire QOL upgrades after they did little but rearrange deck chairs for the last year … My cynical gut says that this is less about them suddenly giving a shit about the PC version, and more of just an effect of them being finished with the mobile game at the same time that MS is putting them through the QA wringer to fix all the broken bullshit before they make it their big title at E3.

I think you might be right on the money with this tbh.
