Family feud in Ulukita
Welcome to Ulukita! Named “Refuge of the Dark Disciplines” and located in the southern region of Ulukita, this new zone builds on the previous zones “City of the Dead” and “Ruins of Tungrad“. The zone’s main story centers on the young Prince Bareeds III of Mediah, whom adventurers met in tragic circumstances back in 2015! Players will be led to investigate the conflict between the prince and the prime minister, facing fierce battles and an end boss.
At the “Refuge of the Disciplines of Darkness”, adventurers can obtain the materials needed to make the “Shoes of Ator”, which are the last high-level armors in Black Desert, after the Armor of the Fallen God, the Helmet of Labreska and the Gloves of Dahn. Adventurers can choose between two abilities for the Shoes of Ator: damage reduction or escape.
The new Ulukita zone is recommended for adventurers with 310 AP/420 PD (attack power, defensive power) or more. The main quest is fully dubbed by actors and features illustrated cutscenes like those in Terre du matin Radieux.
