Black Desert Revamps PvP Content 'Node War'

Pearl Abyss announced today that it has launched the newly revamped 'Node War,' a large-scale PvP update for a broad spectrum of Adventurers. With today's update, Black Desert's PvP content has been reimagined with the improvement of the UI, reduced obstacles to entry, and a revamp of the battle dynamic.

Guilds can apply for Node Wars starting Sunday, May 26. Each battle will be held for one hour from 9-10 pm (GMT+8) every day from Sunday to Friday.

Hold the Fort, Win the War

A Node War is won when a guild occupies and defends a fort until it reaches the set "end time" that can be found in the world map. There are five tiers of forts, but the highly coveted "Question Mark" forts, whose end time is unknown and are tougher to defend, provide greater rewards than other forts.

Guild and alliance sizes range from 30, 50, to 75 players per guild including respective gear caps of 550 (Tuvala gear), 685, or no limit at all. The new system randomly picks a territory, Balenos or Serendia (30 max players per guild), Mediah or Valencia (50 max players per guild), or Calpheon or Kamasylvia (75 max players per guild), effectively eliminating collusion that was controversial in the older format.

Heavy Fire Power and Resurrection with Mounts

The preparation process for installing strategic auxiliary buildings has been simplified. The buildings, vehicles, and siege weapons – including flame towers, Hwacha, cannons, and elephant nurseries – now can be purchased from the Guild Military Supply Manager in each town. This can be done by any guild member regardless of position.

Resurrection is also streamlined and improved. When a player dies during battle, they now can select a town in which to resurrect and quickly rejoin the battlefield. If they die with their mount (horse), it resurrects with them.

High Rewards: Buffs, Silver, Gold Bars and More

Node War rewards have expanded. In addition to receiving tax income from the territory where the occupied fort is located, guilds can receive special buffs or guild funds (in-game currency). When players win in a territory group that includes Calpheon or Kamasylvia, they increase the chance of obtaining items in that area by up to 20% for a week. Adventurers will also receive personal rewards, such as Gold Bars.
