Black Desert Cherry Blossom Event Guide

A guide to the Black Desert Cherry Blossom event running from March 30, 2016 to May 4, 2016.[toc]

Getting Started

This is an event that will run from March 30, 2016 to May 4th 2016. Anyone can participate regardless of level. It rewards a cosmetic earring and a decoration for your residence.

You will need a farm to participate. This need to have at least 4 slots and you may need bigger ones depending on how many seeds you wish to plant. If you are unsure of how to setup a farm and take care of your seeds then consult this guide here.

Cherry Blossom Seed

You will need to acquire Cherry Blossom Seeds. These can be found from Wild Herbs, Desert Herbs, and Dry Thicket only with either barehand gathering or gathering with a hoe (try +gathering outfits/buffs as they seem to give better chance of seeds for me).


There are a bunch of locations with Wild Herbs but my favourite locations is an area just west of Abandoned Iron Mine in Mediah or in the Kamasilve Temple area just east of Heidel.


If you are unable to get to Mediah for some reason, the mountain just south of Velia is also good but there is a lots of climbing and Wild Herbs are sparsely populated.


Farming Cherry Blossom Trees

Cherry Blossom Seeds take 2 slots on a farm and an average of 8 hrs to finish growing (or 6.5 hrs if you use fertilizers). You cannot breed these seeds so you must get more from gathering Wild Herbs/Desert Herbs/Dry Thickets.


Assuming you gather the trees before they reach 120%, they should give around 10 or more Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals. These can be traded for rewards, sold to vendors, or consumed to grant yourself buffs that does not stack with food buffs.



You can trade in the Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals to the Seed Vendor in Heidel (Hunt) or Calpheon (Ahr) for two kinds of reward (repeatable).


Cherry Blossom Pot

This is an decoration for your residence that give you +20 interior points and costs 10 Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals.


Cherry Blossom Earring

This is a cosmetic earring you can equip on your character and costs 30 Unwithering Cherry Blossom Petals. .

So you can get these by gathering with a hoe? I did a run around Mediah last night bare handed and got 3 seeds. All from dry thickets. I didn`t get anything at all from wild herbs and I never saw a desert herb node. Two of them had finished growing by the time I went to work this morning and I netted 26 petals which was nice.

I can confirm they drop from Wild Herbs with barehanded gathering at least. I haven’t tried with a hoe, yet.

Confirmed with hoe. I used the Apprentice Gatherer’s Uniform (quest reward), a steel hoe and ate a grain soup. I collected 7 seeds in the Northern Heidel Highlands, (East of Heidel) during the 30 minutes the first food buff was active with Apprentice 1 gathering skill and spent about 60 energy.

Best place I’ve found to gather the seeds are the highlands to the east of Hidel, got about 4 in around half an hour, switched to an alt and got another 6 in around the same amount of time.

Extra note: I gathered these barehanded, main is Apprentice 9 gathering and alt was a complete beginner gatherer

Does the earring has any stats like the one from pearl shop? I think pearl shop gives you more chance to unlock advance knowledge on mobs or something.

How often do you need to look after these as they grow? do you need to waer them or do they just grow by themselves? Im nervous incase i plant like 5 of the things and they die.

That earring is so manly! No seriously, I really dont know what to do with these petals now. Perhaps the housing decor instead.

Does anyone know if the earrings are character or family bound? I would like to pick up a pair for my future plum

if they are family bound how can i wear them on my other char. because i cant see it in inventorie if i change chars

I’ve had my Cherry trees planted for 2 days… full fertilizer and 100% and they are only at 17% growth. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Sure. As I’m re-reading guides, it may have to do with the limited playtime I’ve had the last few days. Time to AFK-fish and find out.

Doesnt mention in guide, are the cherry trees one time use or when you plant them and they mature, do they continue to give petals or you have to keep planting new trees after you get the petals?

“These can be found from Wild Herbs, Desert Herbs, and Dry Thicket only”

I got from sunrise herb just now

Really really rng. I did a couple of 100 energy gathers in mediah and got 2 each time. I was doing gathering dailies in Olvia this morning and got two in five minutes. A nice easy event though. It doesn’t take much to get the rewards.

A good yield on my first harvest. Got two potted plants, but waited until the second harvest to get my first lot of earrings. This is made slower by the basic hoe being only 10 durability, so I decided to use a workshop to make at least the 30 durability version. After making a few I checked my Velia storage to find that some of them came out as “Lucky”. The luck bonus was quite noticeable given a test with both the Lucky version and the standard. Came out with a haul of 4 cherry blossom seeds, fruit and a bunch of other stuff (such as Seed Potato seeds) during the Lucky test, but it was predominantly herbs with the standard. In any case, I highly recommend folks consider using any lucky tools that they make for finding shinies.

Luck scrolls/boosters seem to help!
I did one trip of gathering wild herbs and got one seed whilst using 85 energy. The next trips I used an luck boost scroll and I got three seeds in ten minutes. I didn’t count my used energy, but I used significantly less energy to get more seeds.

guys, do you any1 knows, if i can continue plant new tree when i have seed, even after event ends ??

Dulfy ??

I harvested 30 seeds with 5 minutes before the server went down, but was distracted and couldn’t make it to the seed vendor to turn it in. I’m really hoping I can at least sell the seeds to a vendor and not have them disappear completely when I log in tomorrow. 🙁

yup, i do the same with easter eggs, i have like 30 egs from 40 for each type, and delete them all after event ended (bcz i cant finish quests), just in 5 min later I read here, that event was prolonged for more next 14 days…

btw u can consume cherry PETAL (not seeds) for small buff
