Guild War Declaration System

Guild Wars have finally arrived in Black Desert Mobile! This allows you to fight alongside your guild members against an enemy guild. To do so, a Guild Master or Officer has to declare war against another guild and pay a three million silver fund.

Members can opt out of Guild Wars, but it requires a 100,000 Silver protection fee. Pay this and that member won’t be able to be attacked.

A Guild War lasts until one of the two guilds receives 30,000 points. You gain points each time you kill an opposing guild member, which is marked as a red dot on the minimap.

Higher Difficulties of Ancient Ruins

Those who’ve found Ancient Ruins too easy at this point will be pleased to learn that the maximum difficulty has been raised from 6 to 7. It still requires five players, with the new CP limit being raised to 3,100.

Maximum Tier of Town Hall Increased

You can now raise your Town Hall to Tier 6, which brings with it a number of possible town improvements. Here’s a break down:

  • You can build a new Lodging
  • Craft Epic Gear and Weapons at the Blacksmith (this is currently unavailable due to a bug)
  • Produce Grand Black Stones at the Refinery
  • Increased Ranch capacity
  • Increased Food Storage capacity
  • Increased Storage capacity
  • Increased number of Stable slots
