Black Desert Online was released yesterday, and alongside the MMO’s launch was a patch.


If you played the testers and have been waiting for the weekend to get into the game more, you will find a few things have been tweaked.

Those playing the Tamer class will notice balance has been adjusted and missing dye slots as no longer an issue. The latter also applied to the Witch class.

The Witch’s forehead and cheekbones are also no longer “protruding helmets.” The issue stemmed from the size differences in the North American version.

Also, those playing Warriors will notice the issue with Skills not functioning properly has been fixed.

An AI issue with Monsters has been adjusted so you will notice they are more vigilant.

Localization issues in the Exit Menu, the Release button for horses, and the Leap Year issue with the journal have all been addressed.

Changes to gameplay such as the alert sound being played every time and item count goes up in a guild quest was remedied. Additional guidance for Balenos Quests were also added to smooth progression.

There are still a couple of known issues being addressed such as logging out with the Combo Tutorial Quest still active. At present, players will have to abandon it and take it again from the Black Spirit.

Work is continuing on Text-Cuts over time and will be fixed.

If you head over to the Black Desert Online forum you can read the entire list of patch notes.
