Black Desert’s newest patch introduces guaranteed enhancements

Good things I assure you!
You don’t want to fuss around with enhancements that might happen, in games or real life; you want to have assurances that your enhancements will function correctly. Black Desert gets that, and that’s why the latest patch adds exactly that with the new guaranteed enhancement stones. When you use these stones they consume a chunk of durability but also offer an absolute 100% shot at enhancement, allowing you to enhance away without fear of failure. Field bosses and world bosses drop the stones in question, so be on the lookout for them.

Players will also be able to enjoy increased guild mission rewards as well as improved guild attendance rewards, so there are also better benefits for chilling with your whole guild. And of course there’s a nice long list of bug fixes and class improvements, so you should notice fewer bugs and issues in the game as a whole. That sounds like a worthy patch.

Couple caveats though, the stones are only useful for enhancing to +13 to +15, which is not terribly useful. The special stones for guaranteed enhancing are not tradeable, and at least with the first bosses today seem to be a relatively rare drop.

They’ve talked about implementing a guaranteed enhancement system for higher end gear, so when I saw the patch headline I got excited. Unfortunately for anyone playing any length of time, what they’ve rolled out is effectively worthless

Add to that, the fact that the stones are divided by green/blue/yellow quality of item that they affect, and come with guaranteed durability loss (30 Durability). The yellow (Flawless Magic Black Stone), which would be the most useful is so rare that it would require the dark ones own luck to get enough to use (minimum of 5 before they can be used).

The dark ones own luck… wheel of time?

yeah, seemed appropriate though.

Thanks for this. I thought for a moment that they had gone full gear enchantment to TET/PEN (top level) essentially making Fail Stacking a thing of the past.

I probably would have re-installed had that been the case. There is tons of PvE/Raid content locked out by a mix level and gear progression. For a PvE player, things are beginning to go the right direction, just really slowly.

There’s no raid content in the game other than guild bosses which aren’t really that locked out as they scale pretty low. There’s two group loot spots in the game, out of the dozens of other spots available, that are around 220 and 240 Kutum AP.
