Black Desert Online: Eternal Winter – 7 things you need to know

Black Desert Online is about to get a whole lot snowier now that the latest expansion – Eternal Winter – is finally here. This expansion not only introduces players to the expansive vistas and snowy landscapes of the Mountain of Eternal Winter, but also features a brand new story and cutscenes with soundtrack, a new class descended from dragons called Drakania, new zones and enemies, and legendary gear, a busy Settlement to explore and much more.

To help players prepare for eternal winter, we’re breaking down the seven biggest things awaiting players in Black Desert Online’s latest expansion.

Visit the snow-capped region dubbed the Mountain of Eternal Winter

One of the biggest additions to Eternal Winter is the Mountain of Eternal Winter, a brand new region filled with snow and incredible views. Although it may seem nice on the surface, as you climb the mountain higher and higher you will encounter blizzards that will damage your character and reduce visibility.

New players can leap into eternal winter with Black Desert’s first new starting zone since launch

Black Desert Online first launched in Korea in 2015 and Pearl Abyss has added a TON of content since then. As with many MMOs, it can be very daunting for new players to jump in and feel like they’re not lacking or lacking in experience. Luckily, Eternal Winter was designed with new players in mind.

While existing players can access Mount of Eternal Winter through the Black Spirit questline, players trying Black Desert Online for the first time can choose the new region as their starting zone, which also happens to be the first time a different starting zone has been added in the story of Black Desert Online.

Choosing the mountain as your starting zone allows you to start a new character at level one, catch up on the story with snaps, and get a full tutorial that introduces you to the game’s controls and systems, with no need to level up or previous ones Complete quest lines for hours.

Visit the village of Eilton to help its residents and uncover hidden knowledge and secrets

Eilton is the largest settlement in Eternal Winter and is located near the heart of Mount Eternal Winter. Despite being one of Black Desert Online’s smaller villages, Eilton is packed with more secrets and hidden knowledge than any other in the game.

Players can find these secrets by helping those who call Eilton home. Additionally, a talkative snow fox named Lando will guide players through this new adventure, helping to make the trek through the elements to the top of the mountain that little bit more manageable and fun.

Eternal Winter features three zones with new wild enemies

New enemies and zones can make or break a new expansion, and Eternal Winter takes that to heart. The expansion features four new zones filled with challenging enemies trying to stop them.

The first of these zones is the Jade Starlight Forest, home to the ancient yeti-like people known as the Okjinsini. These enemies built totems and flaming braziers to bolster their fellow warriors. However, players can turn the tide of battle by destroying them.

Murrowak’s Labyrinth is a zone that harks back to classic dungeon crawling as it sends players deep into an iron mine infested with monstrous insects called murrowaks. The Queen of the Murrowaks, Vercedes, will also be waiting to cause trouble for players, but defeating her will throw her colony into disarray.

Finally, the Winter Tree Fossil is a location of a fragment of an ancient tree that emanates dark powers that affect the spirits of the mountain. King of the Hill fans will rejoice, as players must assert themselves to control the fragment while defending it from a relentless onslaught of polar bears and snow leopards.

Become a legend by defeating the Erebjork

Those willing to take on the challenges of Eternal Winter will eventually encounter Erebjork, a formidable boss who happens to be a giant with a colossal permafrost ax and shield. As if that wasn’t enough, she will also be able to summon a terrible blizzard that will cover the battlefield and make the air itself a threat to the player.

Erebjork will prove to be a formidable foe, but those who can defeat them will get their hands on the Flame of Frost, which is a key component in crafting Eternal Winter’s most powerful gear.

Craft the high-tier Labreska Helm, ride around on an adorable Alpaca mount, and more

Speaking of Frost Flame, this item, which drops from Erekbjörk, is used to craft Labreska’s Helm, which is part of a new premium gear set in the Eternal Winter expansion. Players will need to collect more than just the Frost Flame to craft the helm, but this will grant adventurers a new set buff unique to Labreska.

In addition to Labreska’s gear, Eternal Winter will also add an adorable alpaca mount that players can use to traverse these snowy lands, alongside new life skill activities including snowboarding and ice fishing.

Learn the ways of the Drakania, Black Desert’s 24th class

One of the most exciting additions to the Eternal Winter expansion is Black Desert Online’s 24th class – Drakania. Like the Guardian, Drakania is a descendant of dragons. That’s where the similarities end, though, as they’re actually nemesis and opposites

Born after the reign of Labreska, the golden dragon and scourge of dragons, Drakania is the dragons’ last hope to reclaim their long-lost paradise. To aid her mission, Drakania uses the powerful blade Slayer and her shard, the latter of which can collect ions from the air around her and use Slayer to unleash devastating attacks.

She also has a second Dragon Heart, which allows her to recover quickly and dash across the battlefield at high speeds.

Black Desert Online’s Eternal Winter expansion is now available, and new players can download Black Desert Online and join a 7-day free trial to try it out.
