Blackstar Weapon Comparison

Is the Blackstar Weapon all that great? Does it beat our current boss weapon favorites, Kzarka and Offin Tett? Let’s look at a comparison of the PEN stats of the top 3 “BIS” weapons.


PEN Kzarka
(Caphras Lv 20)
Ogre Ring
AP: 132~136 (134)
Accuracy: 212
Item Effects
● Extra Damage to All Species: 20
● Extra AP Against Monsters: 15
● Attack/Casting Speed: +3
● Critical: +0
PEN Blackstar
(Caphras Lv not possible)
Ogre Ring
AP: 131~137 (134)
Accuracy: 212
Item Effects
● Extra Damage to All Species: 18
● Extra AP Against Monsters: 48
● Attack/Casting Speed: +3
● Critical: +0
PEN Offin Tett’s
(Caphras Lv 20)
Ogre Ring
AP: 136~138 (137)
Accuracy: 194
Item Effects
● Extra Damage to All Species: 20
● Extra AP Against Monsters: 15
● Attack/Casting Speed: +2
● Critical: +2

Blackstar Weapon Benefits:

  • 33 more Monster AP than Kzarka and Offin Tett.
  • 1 more AP on the high range than Kzarka.
  • 1 more Speed than Offin Tett
  • 18 more Accuracy than Offin Tett

Blackstar Weapon Disadvantages:

  • 2 less Extra Damage to All Species than Kzarka and Offin Tett.
  • 1 less AP on the low end than Kzarka.
  • 5 less AP on the low end than Offin Tett.
  • 1 less AP on the high end than Offin Tett.
  • 2 less Critical than Offin Tett

Blackstar’s greatest strength is it’s huge bonus to AP against monsters. This, coupled with very close stats to Kzarka and Tett, really makes the Blackstar a powerful choice for PVE. It has been called the Kutum equivalent for Mainhand.

Blackstar in PVP?
What about PVP with the Blackstar Weapon? Unfortunately, the additional AP to monsters isn’t going to have an impact on hostile players. However, it is still an excellent weapon and comparable to Kzarka and Offin Tett.

Very rare drop, Remnants of the Rift

  • Knowledge “The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah”
  • Level 56+

  4. The quest [Blackstar Weapon] Blackstar will reward you with Eye of Anguish
  5. Quest chain will require you to Process > Heat 3 boss weapons to create 3x Concentrated Boss’s Aura – do not attempt this until after you have the quest. (Better safe than sorry.)
  6. Process (L) > Manufacture: Eye of Anguish x1 + Concentrated Boss’s Aura x3 = Eye of Desolation.

  8. Finish up the [Blackstar Weapon] quest chain.

Knowledge “The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah”

Blackstar Weapon requires the Knowledge “The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah”. This is found under the Knowledge Category: Mediah Adventure Journal II.

Easily find your place in this quest chain by pressing O key then “Suggested”. Look for the tab titled “[Lv. 51] Mediah: The Legendary Blacksmith”

Knowledge Quest Chain for Blackstar:

BDO Blackstar Weapon Knowledge Quest Chain: The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah

The Blackstar Knowledge quest chain starts at The Three Blacksmiths, given by Tulem, the <Arms Dealer> of Altinova.

For those veterans who had already completed the old Mediah main quest line to Awaken the Black Spirit, you just need to talk to Tulem to get the Knowledge called “The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah”.


For new characters, after the Mediah quest rework, you have to finish all 3 Main categories in Mediah, up to and including Apocalyptic Prophecy.

There are a total of 87 quests that need to be completed in the Main quest tab in Mediah. This can’t be started unless you also completed the Calpheon Main quest line, ending at Looking for Adventurers.

The Knowledge quest line is short in comparison: 13 quests in the Suggested tab.

Total Quests for Mediah + Knowledge: 100


#1 Mediah Main Quest Line: Dark Energy that Looms Over Mediah

Blackstar Quest Requirement – Dark Energy that Looms Over Mediah:

Press O key and Main tab.

Remnants of the Rift can also be obtained by using Golden Keys on Golden Treasure Chests hidden throughout the world.


Blackstar Weapon Enhancement

The Blackstar Weapon is challenging to enhance.

  • You will need traditional Enhancement mats to create Failstacks.
  • Memory Fragments to repair Max Durability
  • Cron Stones to protect DUO+ from downgrading (Optional: you decide if the cost is worth it.)

Thanks to bdocodex.com, we have the initial Enhancement Chance for Blackstar weapons. I’m still waiting for someone to share the Failstack data though! 🙂

Blackstar is very similar to normal weapons, but all Enhancement over TRI is more brutal.

It has been reported to me by a user, that BlackStar III to IV on 137 FS gives 7.50%. Ouch!


Blackstar Weapons
FS +8 +9 +10 +11 +12 +13 +14 +15 PRI DUO TRI TET PEN
0 90.00% 20.41% 14.29% 10.00% 6.67% 4.00% 2.50% 2.00% 13.08% 10.63% 3.40% 0.51% 0.20%

+1 to +15 Blackstar Weapon Enhancement:

PRI to PEN Blackstar Weapon Enhancement:

  • Pure Magical Black Stone
  • Max Durability lost is -20 for each Enhancement failure.
  • Cron Stone cost to protect against downgrading is 591 Cron Stones to attempt TET, 100 Crons to attempt TRI.

Obtaining Blackstar Weapon Enhancement Materials

PRI to PEN:

Enhancement from PRI to PEN requires 1x Pure Magical Black Stone for each attempt.


Pure Magical Black Stone Recipe:

Heat: 1x Sharp Black Crystal Shard + 1x Hard Black Crystal Shard + 1x Mass of Pure Magic

Obtaining Mass of Pure Magic

Mass of Pure Magic used to upgrade the Blackstar Weapon after +15 is found in a variety of ways.

  • Node Investment: Star’s End – excavation node
  • Processing (L) > Grinding: Black Stone (Weapon) or Black Stone (Armor)
  • Rare drop from monsters of Star’s End
  • Daily Calpheon quests – Exchange 15x Destructive Illusion
  • Gathering (exceptions: water scooping, digging in the desert, and milking cows)
  • Matchlock Hunting: Khalks and Blue Whales
  • Harvesting Magical Seeds or Mysterious Seeds
  • Defeating Field Bosses: Giant Mudster, Dim Tree Spirit, Red Nose, Dastard Bheg, Katzvariak
  • Manufacturing: Remnants of the Rift x1 + Black Spirit’s Claw x1 = Mass of Pure Magic x5.

Note: Mass of Pure Magic is not available via the Marketplace.

Mass of Pure Magic from Star’s End Node

Star’s End is a high AP/DP Dangerous Node located West of Calpheon City and North of Grana.

Star's End Location, Node Map

Copper obtained via Star's End Node Mass of Pure Magic obtained via Star's End Excavation Node

Mass of Pure Magic can be obtained via the Star’s End Excavation Sub-Node. Proc rate seems to be about 50% so far for me.

Trace of Violence and Trace of Death is also there, given at 1 each per worker cycle.

The other subnode gives Copper, Melted Copper, and Shattered Star Fragment. Shattered Star Fragment is worth 640 silver or you can exchange 30 for a scroll that gives Skill EXP +5% for 10 minutes.


With a level 30 Artisan Goblin, it takes about 12 hours to harvest the Star’s End node 1 time. You aren’t guaranteed a Mass of Pure Magic each time.

Copper obtained via Star's End Node

Star’s End <Node Manager>
You can run to the Star’s End <Node Manager> (Runaway Monster) on low level characters if you stay away from the tentacles. Make sure you have your Escape off cooldown to get out, just in case. With a VP, you can invest from a distance, without visiting the <Node Manager>

After you discover Star’s End, you can right click the Star’s End node icon on your map, and a beam of glorious light will shoot down from the sky revealing the awesome wonder of the <Node Manager> location. 🙂

Noobie Character Tip:
If you follow the roadways there, stay away from the tentacles. Their ranged attack will not do damage, but they can hit you if you are in melee range. You can shuffle down into the pit where the floating black star is. Don’t worry, it’s empty. Then go up the steps and you can drop down from above along the stepped rocky cliffs, where the <Node Manager> is located.


From Calpheon City:

  1. Gabino Farm – 2 CP
  2. North Kaia Pier – 3 CP
  3. Calpheon Castle Site – 1 CP
  4. Calpheon Castle – 3 CP
  5. Brellin Farm – 2 CP
  6. Calpheon Northwestern Outpost – 3 CP
  7. Star’s End – 3 CP
  8. Star’s End Excavation Sub-node – 1 CP
  9. Star’s End Copper Sub-node (optional) – 1

TOTAL CP: 18 or 19

From Grana:

  1. Lake Flondor – 3 CP
  2. White Wood Forest – 1 CP
  3. Tooth Fairy Forest – 3 CP
  4. Loopy Tree Forest – 2 CP
  5. Ash Forest – 3 CP
  6. Star’s End – 3 CP
  7. Star’s End Excavation Sub-node – 1 CP
  8. Star’s End Copper Sub-node (optional) – 1

TOTAL CP: 16 or 17


The route from Grana is cheaper in Contribution cost. This node route would also give you access to Tooth Fairy Forest, which gives a valuable item, Trace of Forest. Other sub-nodes along this route produce Noc Ore, and Loopy Tree items. Obtaining these additional sub-nodes would tack on an additional cost of 5 Contribution Points, because 2 extra workers cost 5 CP for additional Lodging in Grana. You would also need extra CP for the additional sub-nodes. Heidel workers are much cheaper, often 1 or 2 CP per worker. Grana must make some extraordinary talent!!! 🙂

The Heidel route is more expensive and would not give you the option of getting additional goodies from investing in it. Heidel workers are cheap, but it doesn’t do much good, since the route from Heidel has no other resource sub-nodes.

Obtaining Destructive Illusion

Destructive Illusion is a rare drop from Fadus around the Loopy Tree Forest node.

You can obtain up to 6 Destructive Illusion each day from daily quests in Calpheon. You turn 15 of these in to O’Arma at Star’s End to obtain 1 Mass of Pure Magic. Mass of Pure Magic is used to create Pure Magical Black Stones used in PRI to PEN Blackstar Enhancement.

Star’s End Lore

Here is a copy of the Star’s End Lore page that was available on the home page of the official site.



The story of Star’s End begins eight years ago when a meteorite made impact on the northwestern region of Calpheon.The meteorite came to be known as the “Blackstar.”


Not long after the Blackstar crashed, the Ashen Plague emerged.The plague rotted the minds and souls of the afflicted and made them violent.


Therefore, Calpheon decided to quarantine the entire region,effectively sealing it off from the outside world.


As the years passed the existence of the plagued landslowly began to fade away from the minds of the many…

Blackstar Weapon Official Announcement Page

 

Greetings adventurers,


The June 5th (Wed) update has opened access to the previously inaccessible region that is west of Calpheon territory.

 

The story of Star’s End begins eight years ago when a meteorite made impact on the western region of Calpheon.

The meteorite came to be known as the “Blackstar” and the region around it “Star’s End.”

Not long after the Blackstar crashed, the Ashen Plague emerged. The plague rotted the minds and souls of the afflicted and made them violent.

Therefore, Calpheon decided to quarantine the entire region, effectively sealing it off from the outside world.

As the years passed the existence of the plagued land slowly began to fade away from the minds of the many…

 

As you go adventuring into this region, you will uncover what happened to the Blackstar and Star’s End in the eight years since the meteorite crash. In order to accept the Star’s End main quests, which starts with “Drawn by Fate,” you must have completed all the Drieghan main quests.

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Monster Zone: Star’s End

 

 

The monsters that exist in Star’s End are blood-red creatures born from the Blackstar, and they are largely divided between Apostles and Harbingers.

Harbingers are known to be able to interpret the sounds of the Blackstar.

They use their blood to engrave these interpretations into their language in a secret place.

Apostles are guardians of the Blackstar that block the approach of anyone who tries to extract the meteorite’s power.

 

Star’s End is densely populated by monsters, and you must be careful as every single one of them is extremely powerful.   
The grounds of Star’s End is littered with Unstable Star Debris, which if destroyed, will cause nearby monsters to lose consciousness and fall down, letting you easily defeat them.   

Be cautious as you are fighting the monsters, for when an Apostle of Immorality dies, there is a certain chance that it will absorb the dark energy of Star’s End and transform into a more powerful monster.

Obtain the enhancement material for the new “Blackstar” weapons and crafting material for the new crystal “Corrupted Magic Crystal” as loot from Star’s End.

 

New Main Weapon: Blackstar

 

▲The new, red-grade Blackstar main weapons

 

In order to craft the Blackstar weapons, you must complete the quest [Blackstar Weapon] Prohibited Area. In order to begin the quest, you need knowledge of ‘The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah’ and ‘Remnants of the Rift’ which can be obtained from Dark Rifts and golden treasure chests that appear in the field.

The Blackstar weapons can only be crafted by Dorin Morgrim, one of the Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah. Dorin Mogrim is located deep within the Abandoned Mine of the Helms Post. Therefore, adventurers who have not completed the series of quests that start with “The Three Blacksmiths,” which can be accepted after completing the Mediah main quests, will not be able to craft these weapons as well. 
Before you craft a Blackstar weapon, please note the following.

  • You need to have a character Lv.56 or higher
  • You need to have obtained the knowledge of “The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah” to accept the quest [Blackstar Weapon] Prohibited Area.
  • You need to have the item, “Remnants of the Rift.” Once again “Remnants of the Rift” can be obtained at a chance by defeating all types of monsters spawning from Dark Rifts, and this item can be looted as a separate reward. (Remnants of the Rift icon will have been added to the loot pool).
  • Due to how powerful these weapons are, you need Concentrated Boss’s Aura x3, which are obtained from heating world boss weapons.
  • Blackstar main weapons can only be crafted once per character.
  • Blackstar main weapons cannot be enhanced with Caphras Stones.
  • Pure Magical Black Stone is needed for Blackstar weapon enhancement attempts and can be obtained by heating together Mass of Pure Magic, Hard Black Crystal Shard, and Sharp Black Crystal Shard.
    • Mass of Pure Magic can be obtained through various ways, such as excavating at the Star’s End node, grinding Black Stone (Weapon) or Black Stone (Armor), looting from the monsters of Star’s End, gathering, defeating field bosses, and hunting Khalks/whales.

 

New Crystal: Corrupted Magic Crystal

 

 

Corrupted Magic Crystals can be transfused into sub-weapons, and if you transfuse two of them in your sub-weapon, then you can obtain an additional effect.

You can obtain Clear Blackstar Crystals from Star’s End to craft Corrupted Magic Crystals. Adventurers that desire these crystals should immediately go off adventuring to Star’s End!
