'Black Desert Online' (ALL) Content Update Adds Two New World Bosses

by Rainier on Nov. 8, 2017 @ 8:23 a.m. PST

Black Desert Online is an open-world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that rejuvenates the genre.

With the deepest character customization of any game currently on the market, Black Desert Online allows for unprecedented detail in character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world, and extensive lore will enthrall both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs.

Travel through the lands in search of treasure and adventure or become one of the top craftsmen in the land. Set up trade routes and breed horses or compete against other guilds in epic siege warfare.

This is new weekly content that will be offered for free to all players. These bosses will spawn in their respective locations on Saturdays. Both bosses require high skill and determination to beat, therefore it is recommended to slay them in groups. Additionally, players will need to be equipped with a special cannon that can be derived from Vype Stoner, a merchant NPC who resides in Heidel.

Quint the First Troll lurks at Quint Hill, which is slightly north of Calpheon. This terrifying monster is petrified as a stone statue and set free once a week. Quint is invincible while standing and attacks players with ever increasing damage. It also has a ground pound attack that can kill adventurers instantly.

The second boss is Muraka, the King of Ogres. It resides deep inside the Mansha forests. Muraka's specialities are wide AOE attacks that can damage several players. It needs to be taken down with Vype Stoner Cannons first before players can enter a damage phase.      

Although these bosses are tough, there won't be EXP penalties for players who get killed by them and the rewards for slaying them are very valuable. Quint drops Mutant Enhancers that can be exchanged at the Contaminated Farm in Calpheon for Witch’s Earring, Mark of Shadow, or Ogre Ring. Muraka drops Dim Ogre Rings that can be dismantled to have a chance to obtain a PRI or DUO Ogre Ring.

This field boss event will be held for the very first time on Saturday, November 11.

But that's not the only event beginning this week! Players can look forward to the Berserk Season Event where Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter will rotate faster than usual. Expect cherry blossoms, tulips, and lots of snow all within the same week! This changing of seasons will take place from November 8 to November 15. Players can also participate in the Flondor Golden Goose Egg event which takes place from November 8 to November 22. NPC Malt, the brother of Chief Valentine of Florin, will ask players to fetch heavy, lustrous golden eggs that can be exchanged for awesome prizes.
