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.
