Dev Commentary from youtube.com:

Let’s move on to new loot and items. I’m certain that many of you are brimming with anticipation. But first, I’d like to reveal the subjugation rankings that is part of this update.

The subjugation ranking shows how fast you cleared each boss by difficulty level. But unlike the existing ranking system, this one will be applied to each “class” individually rather than collectively.

The difficulties of each boss won’t be fully available at first, but they’ll gradually unlock as each class successfully subjugate the previous difficulty.

For example, if you were playing Warrior, an adventurer must initially clear a specific difficulty as a Warrior in order to unlock the next difficulty level for all other Warriors.

As each class in Black Desert possesses their own set of unique abilities and combat style, strategizing a plan may be more or less challenging, depending on the characteristics of the boss and that particular class.

In the end, we adopted this approach to give skilled adventurers who have extensively studied and gained experience with a particular class the opportunity to achieve greater glory. We hope that this opens up more challenging opportunities for adventurers

Alright, let’s move onto loot and new items that can be obtained from these bosses. Allow me to introduce the new accessory, “Belt of Taebaek,” which comes with a special option that activates new skills immediately upon equipping it.

The belt grants the “Blessing of Taebaek” skill and activates a protective buff for you and your nearby allies.

But, it’s important to note that it has a relatively long cooldown. And as you defeat these bosses, there is a small yet certain probability that you’ll obtain special loot…
