KR Black Desert Patch Notes – 2/16/2017 – Nerfed trade crates and More
The patch is live for the Korean version of Black Desert Online. The version in which everything happens before happening in all the other regions, so we can expect these changes in the near future for NA/EU as well.
Probably the most notable change in the February 16th 2017 update is the nerf to trade crates. But don’t worry, its not all that bad. Trading will now be a flat 100% value instead of between 80-130%. So at best you lose 30% profit on your trade crates…. Which sucks but at the end of the day you can instantly sell everything for a flat 100% instead of channel hopping for hours and hours trying to find a channel with 120%+.
