Before you knock back that glass of bubbly and try in vain to sing “Auld Lang Syne,” you have some New Years activities to enjoy in Black Desert. Through January 2nd, a wish making event offers free goodies and special quests that have to be done in this limited time frame. Players can also enjoy pouches of fortune and increased world boss drop rates in the first few days of the new year.
In fact, the team pre-empted complaints with an extended explanation and apology for these changes: “In the end, this new feature will not allow new adventurers to outperform veteran adventurers in PvP. At the very most, it would help them strike a single blow before they died in the hands of an experienced adventure. As per the PvP balance among veteran adventures, the knowledge and skills you’ve acquired through your efforts will continue to be valued as before.”
