In Black Desert Online’s latest update, the developers have introduced new skills that can be used in Node and Conquest Wars. The patch also implemented a lot of hero balancing changes.

For the uninitiated, certain areas in the world map are called Nodes, and guilds can vie control over them. The guild that wins the war owns that particular Node for a week and enjoys the tax accumulated for that period. Conquest Wars are more extensive because instead of a small area, guilds can fight for the sovereignty of a huge continent. The benefits are the same as in Node Wars, albeit on a grander scale.

Anyway, there are three new skills that you can use during Node or Conquest Wars. They are:

  • Yianaros’ Veil (I to V)
    • Magic Evasion rate +1% to 5%
  • Pilgrim’s Blessing (I to V)
    • Ranged Evasion rate +1% to 5%
  • Knight’s Code (I to V)
    • Melee Evasion rate +1% to 5%

Keep in mind that just like the pre-existing skills (Yianaros’ Light, Pilgrim’s Steps, and Knight’s Defense), you can only learn one skill out of the possible six. You can acquire them by using the [Secret Book] Guild Tactics I to V. These books can be obtained from the Guild Military Supply Manager by exchanging the Resplendent Medal of Honor. The medal is just one of the many rewards that you can get from winning the war.
