        Sources & Additional Info

        Patch Notes copied below from


        We’re adding Marni’s Realm (private monster zones) as we revealed during CalpheON Episode 2. The concept of private monster zones came to fruition after we thought about how to improve the gameplay experience for our Adventurers who had limited time to play each day. We first brought this concept to life in the form of a “mini” server, but we felt that version was difficult to balance and didn’t offer an equal opportunity access for all Adventurers. Hence we’ve come to develop and reveal Marni’s Realm – Private Monster Zones. Of course, up until we settled on this current iteration, we went over countless feedback and opinions from our Adventurers, which helped us immensely. We’re just happy to be able to finally reveal the fruits of our labor.   Marni’s Realm does not apply to all monster zones, and we also focused on most popular zones sought after by our Adventurers, such as those in the Elvia Realm, Sycraia Underwater Ruins, and Gyfin Rhasia Temple.

        It’s quite simple to use. You will need to first move to the designated spot in a monster zone, open up the special menu and click a button to enter. Please note that we limited Marni’s Realm to certain parts of a monster zone in order to lessen the burden on each server. For example, upon entering Marni’s Realm at the Orc Camp, you’ll find yourself only able to move around and fight monsters in the “best spot” of the monster zone. Since you will be the only Adventurer in said realm, we didn’t feel the need to open up the entire monster zone for Marni’s Realm.   Also, your usage of Marni’s Realm is limited to 1 hour per day.

        While we heard your initial feedback on 1 hour being somewhat short, we didn’t want Marni’s Realm to end up overshadowing the main content of Black Desert, that is, fighting monsters in the open world alongside other Adventurers. Therefore, we have no plans to increase the daily limit at this time.

        ● Added private monster zones, Marni’s Realm.
        – The presence of all other Adventurers are removed the instant you enter Marni’s Realm.
        – Marni’s Realm spawns all the same monsters with the same loot rates as the “normal” zone.
        – You cannot go beyond the pocket of the monster zone within Marni’s Realm unless you press the button to leave.

        ● You can find the available monster zones for Marni’s Realm under Menu (ESC) – Adventure (F5) – Private Monster Zone.

        ● The entry button to Marni’s Realm will appear once you reach the designated spot of specific monster zones, which you must press to gain access.

        – Entry to Marni’s Realm is limited to 1 hour per day, which resets at 06:00 daily (an additional 5 minutes is provided as a buffer).
        – As long as you have time remaining, you can enter and leave Marni’s Realm as you please.
        – Leaving Marni’s Realm will pause the daily time limit, but there will be a 5-minute cooldown before you can attempt to enter again.
        – You can only access Marni’s Realm for Elvia monster zones on an Elvia Realm server.
        – You can toggle the Marni’s Realm entry button from the respective private monster zone window.
