Winter Season, the third addition of season servers has arrived. Take a look at what’s in store below!

How Do You Create a Season Character?

As with previous season servers, go to the Create Character window, choose your character, and select Season Character to create a season character.

You must first have enough character creation slots of course, and you can create only one season character per Family. If you want to create another season character, you must delete the one you had previously created.

Season Server Benefits


Unlike the regular servers, the season servers provide special buffs that will allow your season characters to level up more quickly.

Only season characters can enter the season servers. However, season characters can enter both regular and season servers. Starting from the same point as all other players, you will feel the excitement that a new seasonal content brings you once more.
Also, although the season server provides a Combat EXP increase buff as Olvia server does, this buff does not have any maximum level restrictions on the season server, allowing you to level up your season character incredibly fast.

After the December 22nd (Tues.) regular maintenance, there will be five season servers added just like during previous seasons.

Enjoy 4 Season servers for all adventurers!

  • Enjoy the regular season servers and get tips from the other adventures who may have experienced season servers before.

Enjoy an exclusive season server for PvP-lovers!

  • The PvP exclusive season server will offer you higher item drop rates! It’s high risk, high return!


If you reach Lv. 10 with your season character, you will get a Leveling Aid Box as a Black Desert Season Pass challenge completion reward.
You receive more items from Leveling Aid Boxes as you level up your character.
Leveling Aid Boxes can be used up to Lv. 61.
Using a Leveling Aid Box will instantly grant you a Combat EXP +100% buff for 24 hours to help boost your character’s growth.
Other enhancement aid items and inventory slot expansion coupons are offered as well.

That’s not all, Winter Season will offer boosted rewards for reaching level 60 and 61!

Black Desert Season Pass challenge completion reward rewards (and Black Spirit Pass rewards in addition for those who have the pass) will also be available during the new Winter Season. Compared to the previous season, 10 more challenges were added for the Winter Season!

One of the new rewards offered this time around is the Old Moon Costume Box!
If you complete one of the challenges offered in the season pass, you can get one of the three new boxes: Old Moon Costume Box (Viper), Old Moon Costume Box (Swiftness), or Old Moon Costume Box (Valor).

Not only will these boxes contain a costume suitable for the class you open it with, but you can also heat the costumes to extract Ancient Spirit’s Crystal – Viper, Ancient Spirit’s Crystal – Swiftness, or Ancient Spirit’s Crystal – Valor!

In addition, the [Season] Coco Leaf from the Autumn Season is no longer available. Instead for the Winter Season you will be able to get [Season] Morning Frostflowers!

Collect [Season] Morning Frostflowers by completing season pass challenges and from Leveling Aid Boxes to exchange for various items.

You will be able to exchange [Season] Morning Frostflowers for big rewards like Manos accessoires, a Tier-8 horse, and so much more! Winter Season, here we come!

As with the previous seasons, Season Characters will need to use season-exclusive Tuvala gear.

The Naru gear first introduced in the Autumn season was slightly weaker than Tuvala gear, but they can be obtained during your adventures from Balenos to Mediah.
Naru gear can also be enhanced with Beginner Black Stones and allow you to reach higher enhancement levels more easily compared to enhancing Tuvala gear.

How far did you get with enhancing Naru gear last time? If you want to aim higher this season, run over to <Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager> Fughar now!

Show Fughar a Naru gear enhanced up to PEN (V) level and he will upgrade it to a Tuvala gear of PRI (I) level (of the same gear part) for you!

Don’t forget Naru gear and Beginner Black Stones can be obtained in regular servers as well!


How to Convert Tuvala Gear

When you graduate, you can obtain a total of 13 Tuvala Conversion Stones which matches a full set of gear that allows you to convert the season-exclusive Tuvala gear to normal gear.
Keep in mind that using the Tuvala Conversion Stone will result in items that can no longer be enhanced.
Beware! Each Conversion Stone can only convert one Tuvala item. That’s why you need to be careful when choosing which Tuvala gear to convert for each gear slot! You don’t want to regret accidently converting a TET (IV) Tuvala Helmet instead of a PEN (V) one…
The converted Tuvala gear will retain their “Item Branding”, “PEN (V) Creator Name”, and “Transfused Crystals”.

Lastly, the converted Tuvala gear will be changed to Family bound and can be moved to and equipped by regular characters.

Boss Gear Exchange

You can use the [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon you acquire during graduation on a converted Tuvala gear to exchange it for a Boss gear. However, you cannot use Tuvala gear which has a crystal inserted via transfusion for Boss gear exchange.
Only one [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon is given per Family and since you can convert only one of your Tuvala gear parts into a Boss gear, be careful before making the selection!
Tuvala gear used for [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon must be between PRI (I) and PEN (V).

Here are the boss gear that can be exchanged from a Tuvala gear using the [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon.

When you exchange a Tuvala gear for a Boss gear, it decreases the enhancement level by one.
Please refer to the table below for details.

Boss gear received via [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon will become Family bound and cannot be registered on the Central Market, but are available for enhancement and Caphras enhancement.

Graduation Gifts

The Gift Box Full of Memories containing many beneficial items and conversion items for graduation will be offered once again for the Winter Season.
For Summer Season, PEN (V) Capotia accessories were offered and for Autumn Season, the Perilla’s Star.
For winter season, the PEN (V): Capotia Belt as Winter Season’s special reward. The special reward can be exchanged for “Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon,” which can be used after graduating the Winter Season.
