Black Desert Online, the popular action MMORPG developed by Pearl Abyss, has a new update that kicks off the Arena of Solare pre-season.

For those who don’t know, Arena of Solare is a 3v3 PvP mode in Black Desert Online where two teams will fight each other in a best-of-five series. Players will be using some exclusive gear to level the playing field.

That said, the pre-season of Arena of Solare is now open, with players having one week to get acquainted with it before the regular season begins on January 4.

New items and crystals have been added to make the upcoming regular season of the tournament more appealing. For instance, the new Stormy Eye Belt not only provides 100 HP when worn, but it gives an additional 80 long tons to the players’ weight limit as well.

The Peaceful Vagabond’s Earring is also another item worth noting. That’s because it has a unique effect where it recovers the player’s Black Spirit Rage by 1% every 10 seconds.

As for crystals, players might want to get their hands on the new Time Spirit’s Crystal - Perforation. This crystal increases the player’s attack speed and casting speed by 5%, and it ignores enemy resistances by 7% as well.
