Seoul, South Korea - August 16, 2018 - Pearl Abyss announced a powerful new world boss, Karanda, is coming to Black Desert Online SEA. Known for her fatal attacks such as Shriek, Wing Slash and Harpy Horde, Karanda will demand the best combat skills, teamwork and strategic planning from her challengers.

Nevertheless, defeating Karanda will give Adventurers a chance to get a Dandelion, the most advanced Awakening weapon to date. Previously, Adventurers could only obtain boss weapons through weapon boxes that may drop when they defeat the boss. However, a new update will allow Adventurers that defeat a world boss an opportunity to collect its Auras to exchange for a weapon box. The Dandelion weapon box can be traded for 100 Auras.

Pearl Abyss is also currently offering a 30% discount on all packages. Detailed information about package discounts can be found here.

Black Desert Online’s stunning graphics have made many users curious about the system requirements. Pearl Abyss optimized it so the minimum required specifications are suitable for a greater number of users in Southeast Asia. Check the system requirements for the game here. This optimization allows more users to enjoy Black Desert Online!
