Black Desert opens the summertime Night Market, tweaks the Atoraxxion dungeon, and updates its TOS

It’s time to celebrate the summer season in Black Desert on PC. The Terrmian Night Market is now open, and players are being encouraged to take promotional-styled screenshots of the location for a chance to win in-game rewards and physical goodies. There are a couple of different contests of this sort going on, so players who are interested in joining in will want to read up on all of the details.

As for this week’s game update, another round of class adjustments have been applied; players can now gain monster knowledge in Balenos more easily thanks to a 10% increase; a new monster has been added to reduce easy farming in Star’s End; and the death penalty for dying in Atoraxxion on season and normal servers has been removed entirely, while the penalty for Elvia Realm servers remains – rewards for the dungeon have been bolstered on these servers in exchange.

Finally, the game has made an adjustment to its terms of service, amending the section about bot farming to include language that covers game sweatshop and account piloting. Accounts found partaking in this form of behavior will face a permanent ban on their accounts as well as an IP and hardware restriction.

So what is the general impression of Atoraxxion ? Genuinely curious.

It’s all over the place on reddit: some would have preferred a fully instanced dungeon, others are happy with only the boss being instanced. Some don’t care about the dungeon at all (that’s not why they play the game) others are happy the game i going in that direction, but most were frustrated with the amount of bugs (especially when puzzles were bugged in a non-obvious way), the rewards were overall too low, and because it can take 2-3 hours to complete it really sucks that if you need to replace just a single member you have to start over from scratch.
A good amount of people also dislike that people can grief you inside the dungeon. I don’t think I saw a single person say that the end reward was fine as is.

I should also mention that people seem both a bit surprised and quite happy with the news of PA buffing the dungeon. Most expected it would take way longer, and people seem to be happy with the changes as well.
Though it’s not been that long since the news hit, so there’s limited comments.
