    Greetings adventurers,

    Vell, a massive sea monster that lurks beneath the waves of the Margoria sea, will emerge for the first time on the 28th of January at 12 PM and will provide adventurers with the biggest challenge yet.



    Vell, also known as Heart of the Sea, is an ocean boss appearing in ‘Vell’s Realm’ located north of Lema Island in the Margoria Sea. Vell is the first boss of this caliber in Black Desert Online. Being the one and only sea monster as well as having the size comparable to an entire city, Vell requires many adventurers to group up and combine their powers in order to defeat the fearsome monster.


    To face the new boss, you must sail out to the middle of the vast Margoria Sea by using the recently added Epheria Sailboat, or the Old Bartali Sailboat which is easily obtainable and allows to jump right into the action next week.


    Using onboard cannons and matchlocks, adventurers can attack the epic monster while also evading its massive AOE attacks. If Vell receives enough damage, it will go into a frenzy and launch a barrage of powerful attacks. A gigantic tidal wave will sweep away all in its way, destroying everyone above the surface of the ocean. The only way to dodge this attack is to hold onto the helm of the ship or jump into the ocean beforehand. Vell’s Heart, a premium-quality alchemy stone, can be obtained if you succeed in hunting this ocean boss down.

    Really? I could've sworn it was removed from every other version of the game (JP KR RUS) because of the fact that it's a buggy mess, and the devs want to rework it. Why are we getting Vell at all when it's failed on every other server it's been released to thus far? To me, this shows that there is a major disconnect between the publishers and the developers.

    THIS, what are you releasing this broken boss for? Kakao is clueless as always. They just wanna beta test on us just like with many things in this game.

    With all this ocean content coming out, how about fixing the current content:

    - ocean floor harvesting nodes are not properly placed (eg Giant pearls clams and coral ) we can't harvest 30% of the giant pearl clams in places like al-naha island. lots of the coral is hard to gather and can only be collected in very very certain angles.

    - Epherian and Frigete throwing out errors in chat saying when in margoria which also slows down the boat..

    - floating in the air boats

    - the massively overload of ships in velia port and poor boat spawning making it almost impossible to get to you ship or to mount it.

    -Ghost pirate ships facing the wrong way

    -Lighting strikes tallest char on the ship

    -Ocean player desyncs on ferries and on ships even when mounted on the ship

    -Newton law of motion is not applied on the ship meaning, when a character jumps when on a moving ship the character is flown off the back of the ship instead of moving with the ship. cannon balls don't follow newtons law

    -Poor galley banner logo discoloring

    -Strange Sea Monster Hitbox

    -Unrealistic helm animation

    This is most of the major issues that my 100 size sailing guild is having trouble and alot of other sailors are having issues with. please look into this

    Pearl Abyss just gave the reworked version of Vell to Kakao cuz they fear to release it in KR if the server crashes again.

    EU/NA beta-test confirmed :)

    Second awakenings and reblams when Lahn when stop delaying content so much behind kr. We got there knowledge changes so it’s not because it’s not translated.

    The Epheria Sailboat been on the game for nearly a year if not more, even the Frigate been in the game for months now.

    Using cluncky controls you can DIE (and dont worry about losing XP, we have a Pearl Store Item that fixes that) as you fail to evade the attacks due to a combination of poor FPS, lag, awful control scheme as well the poor maneuverability of ships.

    I am not going to even bother with this ...

    I would have liked to go out on my brand new frigate and try taking on Vell, but you've made it the worst time ever for spawning. 7am Monday morning Australia time (Sydney & Melbourne). Thanks again for forgetting that people outside the USA actually play this game.

    Rabam when? It's selfish as hell for you guys to release BROKEN CONTENT THAT HASNT WORKED ON ANY OTHER REGION. Instead of fixing existing issues OR EVEN MENTIONING THAT RABAM AND OTHER ARE COMING SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE SOONE MAYBE NOT FOR A WHILE? Ya that sentence is about as confusing as kakoas antics. Good job boys.
