Life skill mastery is live for Black Desert PC as PS4 gets the Dark Knight and Musa

Black Desert PC fans tired of console taking up all the air in the room can breathe easy today, as Kakao and Pearl Abyss has pushed out a big patch today, the headlining feature for which is Life Skill Mastery. Life skills, as we’ve noted before, aren’t restricted to merely just gathering and crafting skills; they also include things like trading and sailing.

“Life Skill Mastery will extend the depth of the exciting Life Skill-related content by adding a new value to current Life contents. Life Skill Mastery will depend on a character’s Life Skill Level. Hence, the higher the Life Skill Level, the larger the Life Skill Mastery will be. Adventurers can further enhance their character’s Life Skill Mastery by using Life Skill accessories and Gears that will be newly added along with the update. Three different grades of Life Skill items will be added successively, allowing adventurers to enjoy a variety of benefits that they could not experience before. Based on the Life Skill Mastery achieved, productivity can be increased through mass processing, and adventurers will be able to obtain higher and more valuable rewards through activities such as Gathering and Fishing.”

Kakao has posted multiple leveling charts for processing, sailing, hunting, fishing, alchemy, training, cooking, and gathering mastery, along with revamped training (that’s horse training, mind you) content and a requisite event centered on the update.

Over in the still-has-that-new-game-smell PS4 version of the game, Pearl Abyss has dropped a new patch with the Dark Knight and Musa, the Kzarka world boss, and the Hunting lifeskill. Node wars and conquest wars are still on the way! If you’re thinking about giving the PS4 version a shot, definitely check out our detailed impressions piece in last week’s Desert Oasis. Our BDO columnist Carlo normally plays on PC but found the PS4 version a refreshing change and good for newbies – especially on his PSVita!

They finally release Lifeskill Mastery and what do they do? They only release the worst possible gear for Lifeskill Mastery. So now even though the system is released, we have to wait for them to release the better versions of the gear we already know are there. Everyone colloquially refers to it as “Manos” system because of the Manos version of the gear which wasn’t even added.

Whomever decided this at Pearl Abyss is my hero. It’s like they were “Fine, you guys wanna keep bitching about Lifeskill mastery? You can have it.” haha

Sad fact is there so many just outright stupid people falling for this trick too. We’ve been watching people just swing away on TET and PEN green gear knowing the vastly superior blue and gold gear is around the corner. Actually the most predatory company I’ve ever seen.
