    As we sadly say goodbye to the previous Season, it’s time to say hello to Season+!
    Season+ brings with it easier Tuvala enhancements and the ability to exchange all 7 types of Tuvala Gear for Boss Gear. If you want to learn all about Season+, make sure to read everything below!

    Season Server and Character
    “Season Servers” are progression-focused servers that are available for certain periods of time. These servers are only accessible with a “Season Character.”
    Creating a season character is super simple. Once you’ve logged into Black Desert, go to the Character Selection screen and press the [+] button to see all of Black Desert’s many classes. Once you’ve figured out which class you want to play, select it.

    [​IMG]

    All that’s left is to customize your character to your liking, then check the “Season Character” checkbox and click Create!
    Before you go, keep in mind that you can only create one season character per season.

    Season Server and Character Perks
    So, you’re probably wondering what exactly are the advantages of playing a season character on the season servers. Read on to find out!
    Season Character Perks
    First of all, a season character is the only way you can experience the advantages of the season servers! Plus, season characters receive special level up rewards every time they reach a certain level.

    That’s why the Season+ is one of the best ways to level up your character and receive a ton of rewards! Make sure not to miss out!​
    Season Pass
    The Season Pass is meant to support our Adventurers as they progress in the season and is only available to season characters. You can access it from the Black Spirit button at the left of the minimap.

    [​IMG]

    By completing the Season Pass Challenge, you can receive a Leveling Aid Box that will help you as your level up. You can open the Leveling Aid Boxes every 5 levels from levels 10 – 50, and every level from levels 50 – 61.

    Here’s a look at two of the featured rewards.

    1) Defeat the monster summoned from the “Rift’s Echo” to obtain the Frozen Tides Black Stone!
    https://bdocodex.com/us/item/721089/
    The Frozen Tides Black Stone is an enhancement material that has a 100% chance to successfully enhance season character exclusive Tuvala gear from TET (IV) → PEN (V).(Note: This item cannot be used to enhance Tuvala accessories.)

    2) Complete certain main quests, defeat certain monsters, or reach Lv. 61 to obtain [Season] Sunset Maple Leaf!
    https://bdocodex.com/us/item/757416/
    Bring the [Season] Sunset Maple Leaves you’ve collected to Igor Bartali in Velia and exchange them for special items!

    * If you progress through the simplified main questline offered by the NPC Alustin, you can talk to the Black Spirit to receive the “Normal Season Pass” rewards after completing the required quests. (Learn more about the simplified main questline below at [3. Available in the 2021 Season+!])

    [​IMG]
    Season Exclusive Tuvala Gear
    Tuvala Gear is a special kind of equipment that can only be equipped by season characters. PEN (V) Tuvala Gear is similar in stats to TET (IV) Boss Gear. There are two main ways to obtain Tuvala Gear.

    [​IMG]

    In order to enhance the Tuvala Gear, you will need the following enhancement materials: Time-filled Black Stones, Tuvala Ore, and Refined Magical Black Stone. You can obtain these enhancement materials from various sources, which include monster zones, the Season Pass, and more.

    Additionally, we’ve increased the success rates of Tuvala Gear and Accessories in Season+ to help our Adventurers progress further! More details are below at [4. What’s Different in the 2021 Season+!].

    Season Graduation Rewards

    [​IMG]

    Adventurers who have finished their journey in the summer season servers can expect a special reward to prepare them for the normal servers.

    There is no exact date of Season+ end. Its will be announced later.
    Before, let us introduce you to the rewards you can receive via the “Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon.”

    [​IMG]

    Of course, if you’ve already claimed the special season reward previously, you are not able to claim them again since the rewards are limited to once per Family.


    We know some of our Adventurers who’ve enjoyed all the seasons so far and received all their rewards might be a little sad to hear this, especially since we previously announced during the Summer Season that there won't be a new special reward. However, we’re preparing a little gift for these Adventurers as appreciation for enjoying all four seasons.

    Next up is the Boss Gear Exchange, which allows you to exchange PRI (I) - PEN (V) Tuvala Gear for Boss Gear that is one enhancement level lower. For example, if you exchange a PEN (V) Tuvala Armor, you’ll receive a TET (IV) Dim Tree Spirit's Armor!

    The Boss Gear exchanged this way is Family bound, and you can enhance it, strengthen it with Caphras Stones, and even craft Fallen God’s Armor with it. However, you cannot list the Boss Gear obtained this way on the Central Market.

    And unlike in previous seasons, Season+ allows you to exchange all seven slots of PEN (V) Tuvala Gear for TET (IV) Boss Gear! Check out the details below at [4. What’s Different in the 2021 Season+!].

    Available in the Season+!
    Simplified Main Questline (Existing Adventurers)
    The “Simplified Main Questline” returns for our existing Adventurers. You can accept the questline from the NPC Alustin if you fulfill the following requirements.

    [​IMG]

    If you fulfill the requirements above, you will be prompted by a questline selection window to select either the original main questline or the simplified main questline. Keep in mind that once you pick a questline, you can’t change your selection!

    [​IMG]

    * The simplified main questline is only available for season characters and can only be completed once per character.
    * The simplified main questline can only be selected on a season server.
    Season Character Transfer System
    What if you created your season character as Class A, but now want to enjoy the season with Class B...?

    Don’t worry! Because the Season Character Transfer System is accessible in Season+ and allows you to use “Fughar’s Timepiece” to transfer your season character status and Combat/Skill EXP!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    * Adventurers who obtained Fughar’s Timepiece in the previous season are also able to complete the [Season+] Fughar's Special Timepiece quest during Season+.

    * Quests that are in progress or completed on Class A will not be transferred to Class B!

    * The Class B character that you wish to transfer the season character status to must be Lv. 25 or lower to be transferrable.

    * The Class A character must be connected to a normal server with all their gear unequipped.

    Once you’ve used Fughar’s Timepiece, you will receive three exchange coupons (Tuvala Main Weapon Exchange Coupon, Tuvala Sub-weapon Exchange Coupon, and Tuvala Awakening Exchange Coupon) in the transferred character’s inventory after you’ve gone to the Character Selection screen. Use these coupons to change your Tuvala weapons to ones that are suitable for Class B!

    Party Monster Zones

    Want to play with your friends or guildmates during Season+?
    The Waragon Nest, Basilisk Den, and Shultz Guard monster zones will be party monster zones during Season+!
    [​IMG]
    * This applies to both normal and season servers. The monster zones will revert to their original state once Season+ ends.
    What’s Different in the 2021 Season+
    QoL Improvements

    Found it difficult to manage your Inventory with so many items around?
    We’ve made improvements by removing some of the items obtainable in Calpheon and Mediah, and changing some of the loot to be obtainable in an item box form. We’ve also added new loot to the Valencia region to improve the profit rate of monster zones there.

    Easier Tuvala Gear Enhancements
    To help reduce our Adventurers’ game progression, we’ve made it easier to enhance Tuvala Gear!
    First, we’ve decreased the number of Refined Magical Black Stones and durability that was consumed by a guaranteed enhancement of Tuvala weapons or defense gear.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Additionally, we’ve increased the successful enhancement rates of Tuvala gear and accessories as follows!

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We’ve also increased the chance of obtaining Tuvala accessories from Rift’s Echoes, so you’ll have more chances to enhance your Tuvala accessories!

    All these changes come together to make it easier than ever to enhance your Tuvala gear and accessories during Season+!

    Exchange All 7 Tuvala Gear for Boss Gear
    Previously, you had to use a [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon, which you can only use to exchange Tuvala Gear for one piece of Boss Gear. In Season+, there is no longer a [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon; instead, you’ll be able to exchange all 7 equipment slots of Tuvala Gear for TET (IV) Boss Gear (that cannot be listed on the Central Market) once per Family.

    This untradable TET (IV) Boss Gear has a new way to enhance it to PEN (V) with some steady efforts.


    Growth Pass Support
    Worried about what happens after you graduate from Season+? There’s no need to worry because the Growth Pass will help you progress through Black Desert’s many contents! The Growth Pass will be made available to any Season+ server graduated character, free of purchase.

    [​IMG]

    We hope you feel ready to start your adventure on Season+!
    Happy adventuring!

    Hmmm, this is a bit disappointing :(

    It's the exact same season, as the last one...haven't there already been two seasons, that have passed on retail-BDO, in the time that there has been Season+ here?

    Was there no way, to adopt a newer season, instead of just repeating the last one over again?

    Also, just as a footnote here; I did NOT get ALL my Tuvala Gear converted, I did ALL the Season quests, ALL the Season Pass, but I only had ONE piece of Tuvala gear converted :bawling:

    REALLY important piece of information is missing from this Season Information Page:

    You only get to keep Tuvala Gear, IF you have completed the Graduation, whether at the very end, or early graduation, doesn't matter.
    IF your character does NOT Graduate, you LUSE (how it sounds) your Tuvala Gear!

    Regarding the next graduation release date, it is unknown so far, and there hasn't been any comment, from the GamezBD staff, other than it will be released when it gets released :(

    The season end date is also a mystery, although it might be because the devs. are waiting the other Private Servers out, just to see if any of them can develop more content by themselves, instead of just copying GamezBD's server model.

    It could be in about 3 months, or 6 or 1 or 5...alright...I think I made my point :playful:

    @Kolka it would be good, if you could say something to the community here.

    first thx every1 working on this server and maintaining it. im rly enjoying the game and having gr8 time.
    but pls enable early season graduation even if the next game patch is not ready yet. maybe sum mini patch 2 allow graduation.
    I would like 2 experience other aspects/grind zones in the game aside from the seasons spots.
    thx again and i rly hope u take my suggestion into consideration.
