Manos Accessories include earring, necklace, belt, and ring. The greatest benefit of Manos Accessories is they improve every Life Skill and are not specific to one Life Skill only.

TRI Manos Accessory via Shakatu’s Seals

10 Shakatu Seals are usually given every month and sometimes during events.

I can imagine all the groans of frustration now echoing across the world of Black Desert. I hear ya! But in my opinion, patience is by far the cheapest method for enhancing Manos accessories.

In 2023, the Shining Shakatu’s Seal was retired and the new Radiant Shakatu’s Seal was introduced. Retired Shakatu’s Seals can still be exchanged for goodies so don’t destroy them!

Radiant Shakatu’s Seal Exchange UI:

  • Click the Manage Currency icon  at the top right of the screen OR…
  • Menu (Esc) → Rewards (F3) → Manage Currency Menu


  • 100 Radiant Shakatu’s Seals for 1 (TRI) Manos accessory of your choice.
  • 120 Shining Shakatu’s Seals for 1 (TRI) Manos accessory of your choice.

Manos Accessory via Crow Coins

Crow Coins are the preferred currency of barter-loving seafarers! You can exchange 2,500 Crow Coins for a Manos Accessory box at Rebinia, the Crow Coin exchange NPC, located on Lema Island next to Bolhi the Wharf Manager.

Manos Accessory via Special Barter

There is a rare RNG chance to obtain a Special Barter during normal bartering operations that offers a base Manos accessory in exchange for a (PRI) Kagtum Submission Ring, a (PRI) Manos accessory in exchange for 2-4 100G Gold Bars, or a (DUO) Manos accessory in exchange for a 1,000G Gold Bar.

The islands that have Special Barter will display a gold badge on the World Map (M).

Special Barters do not disappear after Barter refresh and stay until you complete the barter or skip it.  (If you have a Value Pack activated, you can see the barter and skip it remotely.)

If you are lucky enough to land this Special Barter, please submit a screenshot!

Manos Accessories Enhancing

Manos Accessories are enhanced using Concentrated Magical Black Gems (CBG). Each enhancement level has a certain number of CBGs required and a SET chance of enhancement success. See table below.

% Chance
CBG x10 75%
CBG x11 45%

NOTE: The enhancement chance of a Manos Accessory is NOT influenced by a failstack or Valks’ Cry. Also, Cron Stones can NOT be used to safeguard the accessory from destruction.

When a Manos Accessory fails enhancement, the accessory is destroyed and the gems are lost. frown
