MAJOR UPDATES

 

● Added the islands of Grándiha and Papua Crinea.

The islands of Grándiha and Papua Crinea were designed to be a bit more peaceful compared to other Black Desert content, particularly for the adventurer worn out from battle and amassing wealth. We hope for all adventurers to venture out to this isolated island to restore both body and soul. In your character’s original form, there’s not much to do on the island of Papua Crinea, initially. However, if you succeed in “transformation” and mingle with the locals, you will begin to experience content never seen before. Other Papus may even start talking with you! There are still many secrets that lay dormant within the island of Papua Crinea. It would be wise to gain the trust of its inhabitants for the countless adventures that lay ahead!

– Grándiha, which used to serve as the port of Grána, was abandoned after the Ahibs fled to O’dyllita but have recently been reopened. Grándiha provides a convenient departure point for Papua Crinea, the island of the warring Papus and Otters.

 

– Papua Crinea is located off the western coast of Kamasylvia. You can easily reach it by sailing north from Grándiha

– The Papus and Otters of Papua Crinea have been fighting each other for generations in the Thousand Year War. If you choose to fight for the Papus, you will be able to befriend Empress Papuraora but will alienate the Otters. Conversely, if you choose to fight for the Otters, you will get close to General Crioniak but get on bad terms with the Papus.

※ If your amity with Empress Papuraora or General Crioniak falls below -2500, you will not be able to talk with Papus or Otters (depending on which authority figure you are on bad terms with), even if you are transformed into one of them.

– Unlike the Papus and Otters you may have encountered on the main continent, those on Papua Crinea were so isolated from the mainland that they do not know how to communicate with you in your language.

– To infiltrate the Papus or the Otters, you need to transform yourself into one of them. The secret to doing this is guarded by the Lamute Gang.

● Added [Papua Crinea] quests where you can join the Lamute Gang, who are chasing after a massive fortune in Papua Crinea, and join the Papus or the Otters in their Thousand Year War and explore the beautiful island of Papua Crinea.

– To start on your new adventure, accept the quest [Papua Crinea] An Amazing Gift Just for You from the Black Spirit with a character that is at least Lv. 58.

– Papua Crinea] quests are part of the Lamute Gang Adventure Log, which is divided into Grándiha, Papu and Otter chapters. Complete each log and you will obtain transformation scrolls to shapeshift into Papus or Otters.

– Papua Crinea quests can be found in the Quest (O) window → Suggested tab → [Great Expedition] Papua Crinea.

● You can transform into the following Otters and Papus with the help of the Darkcloud Shapeshifting Dictionary from the Lamute Gang

 

Papu Otter
Panipani Villager Queekity Thumpity Moon Villager
Brave Pine Blader Gallant Conch Blader
Immortal Persimmon Knight Undefeated Crab Knight
Holy Date Priest Holy Sea Cucumber Priest
Dreamy Bubble Shaman Ruinous Puffer Shaman
Frosty Chestnut Archer Fierce Lobster Boxer

– There are both 1 day and permanent versions of the above transformation scrolls.

* You can obtain the following permanent transformation scrolls through quests.

– Brave Pine Blader (Papu) / Gallant Conch Blader (Otter)

– Immortal Persimmon Knight (Papu) / Undefeated Crab Knight (Otter)

* If you lose the permanent transformation scrolls for the above Papus and Otters, you can go to NPC Benns Moanna or Benns Morio (depending on the species you want to transform into) and pay them two Benns Coins. This only works if you have already received the scrolls via the relevant Adventure Log quests and need a replacement.

* 1 day use transformation scrolls can be obtained as rewards from [For the Thousand Year War] raid quests during [Papua Crinea] main quest progression.

– Panipani Villager and Queekity Thumpity Moon Villager transformation scrolls can be purchased from Benns Moanna and Benns Morio at 100,000 Silver each after completing the quests “[Papua Crinea] Moanna, Papu’s Friend” and “[Papua Crinea] Morio, Otter’s Friend”.

– To talk to NPCs, obtain knowledge, and progress quests on both Papuraora Island and Crioniak Island, you must be transformed into one of the 6 types of Otter or Papu mentioned above.

– Because the Lamute Gang’s Darkcloud Shapeshifting Dictionary is still a work in progress, you cannot jump or move backward while you are transformed. Also, swimming will automatically undo your transformation.

– Each Papu and Otter type has different skill sets, which can be seen at the bottom right once you transform into them.

– Transformation scrolls can only be used in certain places where you cannot be seen by Otters or Papus. Right click a scroll at a designated location to transform.

– Heading over to the opposing island will result in you getting attacked by guards and canceling the transformation. And you cannot talk to opposing island NPCs.

– When moving after transforming into a Papu or Otter, you will see a dust effect around your character.

● You can receive the [For the Thousand Year War] Stoneback Crab Training raid quests from Benns Moanna (Papu) or Benns Morio (Otter) at Bloodshed Beach for 5 days as you progress through the [Papua Crinea] main quests.

– [For the Thousand Year War] Stoneback Crab Training raid quests consist of the following.    

For the Thousand Year War
Day Stoneback Crab Papu Transformation Scroll (1 Day) Otter Transformation Scroll (1 Day)
Day 1 Dumb Stoneback Crab Brave Pine Blader Gallant Conch Blader
Day 2 Mediocre Stoneback Crab Immortal Persimmon Knight Undefeated Crab Knight
Day 3 Intelligent Stoneback Crab Holy Date Priest Holy Sea Cucumber Priest
Day 4 Extraordinary Stoneback Crab Dreamy Bubble Shaman Ruinous Puffer Shaman
Day 5 Bloodthirsty Stoneback Crab Frosty Chestnut Archer Fierce Lobster Boxer

– You can receive the transformation scroll (1 Day) by talking to Benns Moanna or Benns Morio at Bloodshed Beach as you progress through each quest. The number of the transformation scroll (1 Day) will increase as the Stoneback Crab quest’s difficulty increases

For example, on your 3rd day, you can receive 3 transformation scrolls from the NPC: Brave Pine Blader Transformation Scroll (1 Day), Immortal Persimmon Knight Transformation Scroll (1 Day), and Holy Date Priest Transformation Scroll (1 Day).

– You cannot accept the [For the Thousand Year War] Stoneback Crab Training raid quests for Papu and Otter at the same time. If you have already accepted the quest for one of the two, you need to either complete or forfeit it before you can accept the other.

– You will obtain 5 types of Papu/Otter Soldier Titles after completing the Papu/Otter raid quests.

– Create a party with adventurers who share the same goal! Transform into a Papu or an Otter Soldier and make different strategies based on each soldier’s unique skills.

– You cannot attack a trainable Stoneback Crab with a normal character, so you must transform into a Papu or an Otter in order to defeat it.

● Go to [Lv. 58] Grándiha & Papua Crinea under the Recurring tab in the Quest (O) window for Grándiha and Papua Crinea daily quests.

● Added the following new creatures that have never been seen before in the continent for Papua Crinea.

– Lazy Rock Spirit

– Lazy Cloudy Rain Mushroom

– These two monsters don’t attack you first and are well disguised, which makes it hard to find them. You cannot attack them with a normal character. Only a Papu or an Otter will be able to.

● Added the following 3 new coins.

-Lamute Gang’s Benns Coin

-Rainbow Petal Coin

-Rainbow Fish Bone Coin

-Lamute Gang’s Benns Coin can be obtained with Grándiha’s daily quests. Lamute Gang’s Benns Coin x1 can be exchanged for Rainbow Petal Coin x1 or Rainbow Fish Bone Coin x1 via Benns Lamute.

-Rainbow Petal Coins and Rainbow Fish Bone Coins are those used by the Papus and Otters, respectively. They can be obtained by completing Papuraora and Crioniak Island quests.

MAJOR UPDATES

● The Thousand Year War between the Papus and Otters of Papua Crinea seems to have rekindled.

– Every day, the Papus and Otters will battle it out on Bloodshed Beach, in three random servers.

– If you are in one of these servers when the battle breaks out, an alert message will appear on your screen.

– Adventurers should turn into Papus or Otters and join others in the battlefield.

– You can exchange your loot from the battle for Rainbow Fish Bone Coin or Rainbow Petal Coin.

 

The Papus and Otters have broken their short truce and have drawn their weapons once more. Adventurers who’ve completed the Papua Crinea quest and received the Shapeshifting Dictionary can seek to gain Amity with the Papus or Otters and join them in the battlefield. When a battle breaks out, an alert will be seen throughout the server. Adventurers willing to participate should gather to Papua Crinea, then transform into their Papu or Otter form to join in the fight. Each battle lasts for around 20 minutes. During that time, adventurers should take down the opposing faction’s soldiers to obtain some loot. Exchange this loot from the battle for Rainbow Fish Bone Coin or Rainbow Petal Coin. Lend your paws to this fierce battle to defend Papu and Otter pride!
