A guide to the new fairy companion in Black Desert Online.
Fairy Queen Theiah
To start the Fairy companion quest you will need to be level 52 and take the quest Fairy Queen Theiah from your Black Spirit (suggestions tab). Make sure you have completed [Boss] Witch-Hunting as well.
This quest will take you to the Kamasylvia temple in Mediah. You will want to make sure you have 2x Cooking Honey in your inventory when you go visit her as it make the next step of the quest much easier. Cooking Honey can be obtained from the Alejandro Farm node right by Heidel.
Sweet Honey, a Source of Power
Hand the 2x Cooking Honey to her and then pick up the next quest. She will, give you 1x Sweet Honey Jar.
Into the Sweet Honey Jar
For this you just need to go to the quest location and interact with the Unstable Crevice.
Laila’s Scattered Petals
This part will be the worst quest for getting the fairy as this quest is fairly tedious. You will need Laila’s Petals and there are two ways to get it. First method is to get it via grinding/fishing/gathering which has a very low chance. Alternatively, you can make it via alchemy by making the Special Honey Jar first.
This step is currently a bit bugged as people are unable to find Unstable Crevices in the wild. You are better off doing the grinding/gathering/fishing method.
To make Special Honey Jar via alchemy you will need to the following ingredients (make sure you are on the quest as well)
- 2x Top-Quality Cooking Honey
- 5x Fruit of Abundance
- 1x Essence of Liquor
- 2x Purified Water
Getting Top-Quality Cooking Honey is the most time consuming part. You will need to rent a Matchlock from the node manager at Balenos Forest. This costs 2 contrib points. Then you need to go into the nearby Balenos Forest and shoot Wild Beehives. You will loot Wild Beehive from them and then grind via processing to make either Cooking Honey, High-Quality Cooking Honey or Top-Quality Cooking Honey. Top-Quality is a rare processing product and it is probably about 3% chance to get it so prepared to spend quite a bit of time shooting beehives. If the matchlock run out of charges just return to node manager to return it and get another one.
Fruit of Abundance can be obtained from gathering/farming sunflowers, strawberry, grape and onion. If you have been farming sunflowers you should have a ton of these. Otherwise try your luck gathering from sunflowers in Northern Wheat Plantation or grapes from Olvia.
Essence of Liquor is made from 1x Fruit, 1x Flour, and 1x Leavening Agent via cooking.
Purified Water is obtained by gathering river water with bottles purchased from material vendors and then filtering it.
Unstable Crevices: You are not able to use the Unstable Crevice from the previous quest so you will need to find one in the wild. However, so far no one has been able to locate one yet so this pathway cannot be completed. Finding a Crevice and interact with it will allow you to place the Special Honey Jar in the Crevice and get the Laila’s Petal.
Much like other event items, anything you gather/kill/fish can drop it. The drop chance is fairly low and it may take you several hours to get it. However, it will let you skip the Unstable Crevices step.
Once you have the petal, return to Theiah
This is the final quest in the series. It is a simple quest that give you a Sealed Fairy Wings as a result. This is a RNG Box that can give you one of many wings of different tiers.
Luckily if you did not get a Fairy of a good tier you can have a go at the daily recurring quest.
Managing Your Fairy
Once you have the fairy in your inventory, you can right click it and a window will pop up to register the fairy. Once the fairy is registered, it will have a special interface on the top left corner you can click to activate Fairy information. You will need to click the Summon button at the bottom right to take it out.
Fairy Tiers and Skills
Fairy comes in 4 tiers just like pets. Each tier controls how many levels the fairy can reach and how many skills it can have. Fairy will learn a new random skill every 10 levels. All fairy will come with default +1 luck.
- Faint – Tier 1 – 10 levels (1 skill)
- Glimmering – Tier 2 – 20 Levels (2 skills)
- Brilliant – Tier 3 – 30 Levels (3 skills)
- Radiant – Tier 4 – 40 levels (4 skills)
The skills it gains also range in levels from 1 to 5 that is determined randomly. Higher tier fairy will have a chance to get higher level skills with only tier 4 fairy able to get level 4+ skills.
- The skill Fairy’s Tear does not recover a shattered crystal or trade goods or items that have had Enhancement degraded upon death. This skill cannot be used during Node/Conquest wars.
To increase your Fairy’s levels, you can feed it armor and weapons of green quality and above. The items cannot be enhanced. Click the Growth button and then click on the items in your inventory you would like to feed.If you receive a fairy of undesirable tier, it may not be a good idea to waste items to grow it.
Different items give different amount of growth XP.
- Blazing Nouver/Kutum (special drops from new Drieghan area) – 375k
- Dandelion/Kutum/Kzarka/Nouver/Boss Armor – 47.5k
- Ultimate Awakening Weapons (yellow) –13k
- Lemoria armor – 3.3k
- Liverto/Blue Awakening Weapons – 3k
- Ultimate armor/weapoons – 500-1.7k (with Rocaba/Rosar > Grunil/Yuria > Steel Taritas etc)
- Black Spirit’s Claw – 1.5k
- Blue/green armor/weapons 25-500 (with Rocaba/Rosar > Grunil/Yuria > Steel Taritas etc)
If you want to go the P2W route, it is possible to purchase Ornette’s Dark Honey Wine from the Pearl Shop for 150 pearls each or 11 for 1500 Pearls. These give similar XP to the Ultimate Awakening Weapons (yellow).
It is possible to Rebirth (reset all of fairy’s skill and levels to 1). However the Fairy must be at least level 10. To Rebirth the Fairy you will need Fairy Queen’s Power, a pearl item which is not available on NA/EU Pearl shop yet.
Once your Fairy reach max level, it will have one chance for upgrade. However this is not yet in NA/EU. The upgrade chance is a percentage that can be affected by the amount of materials you place in it up to a maximum of 100%. Upgrading takes either Ornette’s Dark Honey Wine from the Pearl Shop (4% per wine) or Sweet Honey Wine crafted by cooking (400 for 100% chance)
Sweet Honey Wine
- 2x Top-Quality Cooking Honey
- 4x Full-bodied Exotic Wine
- 10x Sugar
- 2x Fruits
If the upgrade fails, you can Rebirth it and relevel the fairy to try again.
If you are not happy with the Fairy tier or the skills you received. You can delete the Fairy and get another one via a daily quest. The daily quest is given by Theiah at the Kamasylvia Temple in Mediah. It will require you to get two Laila’s Petals.
To get another fairy, you must first release your current one. You will get a number of Fairy Powders proportional to your Fairy’s tier and level at time of the release.
