by Rainier on March 13, 2019 @ 9:13 a.m. PDT

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.

Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games have announced the activities that will conclude the 3rd anniversary celebrations that started two weeks ago. The Black Desert Online community can look forward to some of the best in-game events that have been organised in recent history, offering coveted rewards for all who participate.

Glimmering Old Moon event

To kick off this week’s celebrations, there will be the Glimmering Old Moon event that will start on the 14th of March up until the 10th of April. Here, players can engage in daily Challenges and event-quests that will yield special items such as Secret Old Moon Letters and different coloured Moonlight Shards. The latter can be used to enhance Old Moon accessory items that are rewarded by completing quests which are given by NPCs who reside in Heidel’s Valley Lily Inn.

These NPCs will give both a combat quest as well as a fishing quest following the delivery of a Secret Moon letter. Players who successfully managed to enhance the Old Moon accessory to TRI or higher will be rewarded with the highly sought-after TRI-grade accessory such as TRI: Ring of Crescent Guardian, TRI: Narc Ear Accessory, TRI: Basilisk's Belt and/or a TRI: Ogre Ring depending on the completed questline.

Cron Collector event

The Cron Collector event will start after today’s maintenance and will last up until the 27th of March. When gathering, fishing or defeating monsters players can earn Sky Blue Lollipops which in turn can be traded with several NPCs for Cron Stone boxes that randomly give out an amount of Cron Stones.

The Hall of Fame

To honour Black Desert Online’s most loyal players, a Hall of Fame will be erected. Here players who have accumulated a top the rank in a certain activity will be rewarded with a special in-game title. Activities can be “highest level character,” “most hours played,” “highest life skill levels”, and many more.

Free gamepass

New players will be pleased to know that they can still earn their free gamepass up until the 27th of Marchby playing Black Desert Online’s new battle royale mode named Shadow Arena. Contestants who are skilled enough to slay 5 players during the event period will be rewarded with a copy of the game ($9.99/€9.99 value).
