'Black Desert Online' (ALL) Update Will Add Colossal Ocean Boss - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 17, 2018 @ 3:51 p.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.

Vell, a massive sea monster that lurks beneath the waves of the Margoria sea, will emerge for the first time on January 28 at 12:00 p.m. and will provide players with the biggest challenge yet.

Vell, also known as Heart of the Sea, is an ocean boss appearing in Vell’s Realm located north of Lema Island in the Margoria Sea. Vell is the first boss of this caliber in Black Desert Online. Being the one and only sea monster as well as having the size comparable to an entire city, Vell requires many online players to group up and combine their powers in order to defeat it.

To face the new boss, adventures must sail out to the middle of the vast Margoria Sea by using the new Epheria Sailboat or the Old Bartali Sailboat, which is easily obtainable and allows players to jump right into the action next week.

Using onboard cannons and matchlocks, adventurers can attack the epic monster while also evading its massive AOE attacks. If Vell receives enough damage, it will go into a frenzy and launch a barrage of powerful attacks. A gigantic tidal wave will sweep away everything in its way, destroying everyone above the surface of the ocean. The only way to dodge this attack is to hold onto the helm of the ship or jump into the ocean beforehand. Vell’s Heart, a premium-quality alchemy stone, can be obtained if players succeed in defeating Vell.
