Black Desert Magoria Opening Event Guide
A guide to locating the shipwrecks and underwater locations for the Magoria Opening Event.
This event is running from Jan 25 to Feb 8 and requires you to locate 5 of out of the 7 knowledge items indicated below. Upon completing this you will be rewarded with 2x Epheria Sailboat Blueprints and a special title in a future game maintenance.
- There is a new questline from Batima in Shakatu that has you go to some of the same locations, be sure to pick that quest up (see more under New Quest Chain). The quest will mark the locations of the things you need to find, making it overall an easier experience.
Some stuff that will help you with this are Elixir of Seal (+15 seconds underwater breath), Shark Costume (+30 seconds underwater breath, faster swimming speed), and movement speed crystals (you move faster underwater). If you are doing the Shakatu Questline at the same time, you can just use the minimap to find the location for stuff but otherwise you will likely need a compass to help navigate (compass parts can be bought on the marketplace and lasts for 3 days or you can get one from doing the Magoria main questline).
If you run out of breath, your character will automatically swim up top, you won’t drown and die. If you run out of stamina, your movement speed will be slowed down significantly (-30%) but you can go back to character select screen and log back in to replenish your stamina to full.
