■ Black Sun

A new event has occurred in Chaos that has since loomed over Valencia.
Though the Black Sun disappeared for a time, it has once again risen in the middle of the Great Desert.

As Elion's and Hadum's realm merged into one within chaos,
The Black Sun merges Great Desert Imur and Torme into one space.
The Great Desert, enveloped in Chaos, has become a truly vast battlefield.


The Black Sun rising over the Great Desert is also the prelude to the war content that will be released this year.
The endless desert allows more the footprints of even more adventurers,
The scale of this growing battle is ever more reminiscent of full-scale war.

Give it your all as you participate in a war that begins under the newly risen Black Sun in the Great Desert.

■ Enter Black Sun

- The Black Sun rises every Monday at 18:00 - 19:00 / Friday 21:00-22:00 in Great Desert.
- You can enter Black Sun after completing "Family Quest - Open Desert".
- The Great Desert where the Black Sun rises is entered as a single map regardless of difficulty level.
※ Monster CP is adjusted to an appropriate level according to the CP Rank of all adventurers.


- Adventurers in the Great Desert will be sent to Barhan Gateway when the Black Sun rises.
- You will enter at a random location in the Great Desert where the Black Sun has risen.
※ The Black Rock Shrine will not appear starting from 30 minutes before the Black Sun rises and until the Black Sun sets.
※ The Black Rock Altar is not activated while the Black Sun rises, and if a certain number of monsters around the Black Rock Altar are defeated, a monster full of Dark Energy will appear. Defeat this monster to earn a high number of points.
- Points can be obtained by defeating monsters in a place where the Black Sun has risen, and Hadum loot can be obtained from Spoils of Great Desert.
- NPCs, excavation goods, and temples do not appear in the Great Desert where the Black Sun has risen, and you cannot move to the nearest oasis during combat.
- Even adventurers who have not activated the Broken Altar can use the Broken Altar while the Black Sun is present.
- In the Great Desert, while the Black Sun has risen, desert adventure time does not decrease.
