Our Interview with PearlAbyss is finally here! We met PA at the E3 in Los Angeles and we had a lot of Questions for them! Q: How will PvP be rebalanced? What are your thoughts on potions? A: We’re thinking rebalance monsters first, then it depends on the changes we make to each characters’ skills; as that might affect how we approach potions. We’re thinking we will go with our current potion system, but if we feel a change is necessary we will reconsider our stance. Q: Can you tell us more about the different types of guilds, i.e religion, […]
The second part of our weekly Closed Beta 2 Screenshot Series is here! We hope that you enjoy them.
In our second after Closed Beta 2 Poll “PvE Servers, yes or no?” the majority(57%) of our community voted for “Yes, we want PvE Servers”. Here are some of our Communitys top arguments: Silent Hunter I’m gonna play on a PvP server, but I voted for a PvE server. It all depends on what the repercussions are of losing an PK attack. I have no problems with duels, but the possibility of low level ganking is what I’m against. Players should have a choice in playstyle. Some people want to trade, some want to craft and others like to explore […]

Well, that was close a pretty close one, but 55% of the Community decided that there shouldn’t be a Level Cap in Black Desert. Here are the best Pro and Contra arguments from our Community: Lyriu I don’t see why we can’t have no level cap AND make it so each level isn’t as powerful. Make it so, yes you’ll have improved your character, but no you can’t just rape someone 2 levels below you. It should still be kind of even. One way to do this is to change the kind of rewards you get from leveling past 50. […]

Wielding a sword in his main-hand, the Warrior deals fatal blows to his enemies […]
