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