Black Desert Epheria Sailboat Guide
A guide to building the new Epheria Sailboat introduced with the Magoria Patch. This is a work in progress.
Epheria Sailboat is a personal sailboat that is faster than the current fishing boat, equipped with cannons, and repairable. This new sailboat is introduced with the Magoria patch and requires a minimum of 2 weeks (14 days) to obtain.
This Epheria Sailboat can be only built in Epheria and requires the Shipyard located at second floor of Epheria 3-5.
- Remember that you can use multiple workers to build the boat and you can start building as soon as you have some of the material much like making the fishing boat.
- Multiple workers can process the same material at once, there is really no limit. If you need workers from other cities, they must be connected and the material be in the storage of their home town.
You need a massive amount of materials to build the ship, most of which can be obtained by workers except for the logs to make Standardized Timber Square.
|Material||Raw Material Cost (Maximum)||Raw Material Cost (Artisan Processing)*|
|20 Design: Epheria Sailboat|
|600 Steel||3000 Coal, 15000 Iron ore||1200 Coal, 2400 Iron Ore|
|300 Flax Fabric||15000 Flax||2400 Flax|
|800 Standardized Timber Square||80000 Logs||12800 Logs|
|1500 Pine Plywood||75000 Pine Timber||12000 Pine Timber|
* At Artisan 1 processing or above, you have a chance of getting 1-4 products when you process items, with the average around 2.5 products. Each raw material has two processing steps to reach the final material so it is 2.5 * 2.5 = 6.25. Maximum raw material cost /6.25 = approximate raw material cost for Artisan processing or above.
Epheria Sailboat Designs
You will need a total of 20 Epheria Sailboat Designs for the boat. There are three ways to obtain them and if you can do all three, you can shorten the amount of time it takes to finish your boat. The minimum amount of days to finish your boat is 14 days.
- 14 Epheria Sailboat Designs from Daily quests (once per day per family, Level 10+)
- 2 Epheria Sailboat Designs from Weekly quests (fishing profession 1 or above)
- 3 Epheria Sailboat Designs from one time quest (Level 55 or above)
This daily quest is a quick ~4 mins quest that require you to take a crate from one NPC to another and do it twice. In exchange for completing this daily you will get 1x Design: Epheria Sailboat OR 100k silver. You can just park a level 11 alt here and do it everyday instead of running a character over here.
- Important: Make sure you don’t pick the 1G goldbar option if you want the Epheria Sailboat designs!
Talk to Philaberto Falasi in Epheria and he will offer you the daily quest.
Quest is very simple, pick up crate next to Philaberto and deliver it to the NPC on the docks (Guild Wharf Manager)
To get the weekly quest, you need to be at a minimum of professional 1 or above in fishing. There are 4 different weekly quests but you can only get one depending on your fishing level so you can only get one Design per week from the weekly.
To get the weekly, you need to talk to Katio at Nada Island, which is SW of Port Ratt in Magoria. Take the Ferry from Lema Island to Port Ratt (~30-40 min ferry trip).
Once you are at Port Ratt, boat your way to Nada Island, this whole island is surrounded high rocks but there is a small tunnel above the water on the east side you can use to enter the inner ring of water. From there find Katio on the beach to the west.
The weekly quest will ask you to fish specific fish, some of which requires spearfishing. Spearfishing requires the usage of harpoons and a fishing boat. You need to be profession 1 fishing or above to use and harpoons can be crafted in Iliya tool workshop. Harpoons can be only deployed in water that are 60m deep or above and you can’t AFK harpoon fishing so you will need to play the minigame.
One Time Questline
This questline starts with Pavino Greko, the storage keeper in Epheria. It will take you all the way to Magoria and give you 3x Epheria Sailboat along the way.
- These quests do require combat (killing Cox Pirates on Kuit Island) and you need to be level 55 to accept it.
Here are guides for some of the less obvious quests along the way. You can also keep track of this quest chain in the Suggestions tab of your quest log.
It’s a Done Deal
For this quest you need to gather 10 Oysters, they can be found on the seabed, usually on top of rocks. You need a hoe to gather them.
A Ship in Distress in the Seas of Peyon
For this you need to examine the broken pottery piece and then the broken ship itself (Oak Barrel)
The First Sailboat Bound to Magoria
You need to interact with two objects. The wooden plank debris on the seabed is a bit hard to get so you may need to try different angles.
Need to be at the right angle to interact with the Ocean Lamps in the area to get knowledge and finish the quest.
Same here, need to be at the right angle to interact with the Shipwreck Debris
Reluctantly Helping Katio
This quest asks you to help the three Otters with getting stuff. Shrimp/Lobsters can be found when you gather the Corals in the water next to Katio.
For Must Have Fish, Queeek! You can find Moray and Blackfin Sea Perch in Vadabin Sea around Port Ratt but for Sailfish and Skate they are found in the Jurr Sea south of Nada Island where Katio is.
Boat Building Materials
Lets break down all the materials required to build your Epheria Sailboat here.
To make steel, you need Iron Ore and Coal. There is a tons of places to get Iron Ore from. Easiest is Coastal Cave just west of Velia but if you are getting Zinc and Black Crystals you probably have the Abandoned Iron Mine node for Iron anyways. For Coal the easiest place is Keplan Quarry just north of Keplan.
- 5 Melted Iron Shards + 5 Coal = 1 Steel
- 5 Iron Ore = 1 Melted Iron Shard
Flax is farmed by your workers from two nodes just south of Heidel, Costa Farm or Moretti Plantation. Workers will also produce Flax Thread sometimes, which is the intermediate between Flax and Flax Fabric.
- 10 Flax Thread = 1 Flax Fabric
- 5 Flax = 1 Flax Thread
Standardized Timber Square
This is the thing most people freak out about. They see 800 Standardized Timber Square, they do the math and it comes up to 80k logs. However that is the maximum amount you need and doesn’t take into account the extra procs you get when you process. Basically, if you are Artsian 1 processing or above, you only need 12800 logs. If you are just starting, you still have to wait 14 days to get your Sailboat designs so that is only ~900 logs a day if you just get started now. A few hours of chopping each day will get you those logs.
- 10 Usable Scantling = 1 Standardized Timber Square
- 10 Log = 1 Usable Scantling
Using Chopping under processing, you would make 1x Usable Scanting every 10 logs and 1 Standardized Timber Square every 10 Usable Scantling at a minimum. With procs you are looking at on average 2.5 Usable Scantling every 10 logs and 2.5 Standardized Timber Square every 10 Usable Scantling.
You can use your workers to gather Pine Timber for you. The two nodes that provides Pine Timber are Serendia Shrine and Marie Cave. Serendia Shrine will be easier to connect for most players as Marie Cave is all the way south of Keplan.
- 10 Pine Plank = 1 Pine Plywood
- 5 Pine Timber = 1 Pine Plank
If you want to manually gather, you can try this tree map. There are a couple of spots for Pine but the best one I find is just SW of Olvia in the Masked Owl’s Forest.
