Cart and wagons are either private or public and part of the vehicles available in Black Desert Online.

Vehicle connect horse

One can only have one vehicle or mount active inside the world and additional ones need to be stabled. If stabled carts or wagons take up one slot. They can only be used if at least one horse (no other mount possible) has been hitched to it. If you want to hitch several horses to a vehicle that permits so you need to hitch them within the stable one at a time: click the vehicle in the stable list, choose "connect wagon" on the bottom. Right click the vehicle, right click the horse to connect. Accept. Rinse and repeat. To disconnect a horse select the horse in the stable list and click "disconnect".

If you have vehicle with horse(s) connected the number of stable slots occupied is number of horses + 1 for the cart or wagon/cart - so make sure you have the cart at a stable with sufficient slots for your horses. Every stable has a minimum of 3 slots. In large towns the stable slot number can be expanded by investing Contribution Points into Horse Ranches.

Same as riding a horse having it hitched on a wagon you drive the horse will be trained to increase its level. But the horse will not loose stamina so no carrots need to be fed. Of course the vehicle looses durability and lifespan in return (see below properties).

How to Obtain

They can be

  • bought as licenses from Stable Keeper and then registered at a Stable
  • crafted via wagon workshops by workers in larger towns
  • bought from the Pearl Shop for real life money

Carts and wagons have several properties:

  • number of horses needed to use it
  • number of item slots
  • Weight it can carry
  • Lifespan (decreases with use until the vehicle is broken for good)
  • Durability (100% to 0%, decreases with use, can be repaired at Armor Vendors and Blacksmith)
  • Speed (how fast it is, connected horses or loaded goods weight or such has no impact)
  • Brake (how fast it stops)
  • Turn (how wide the turning radius is)
  • Acceleration (how quickly it accelerates)
  • Impact Absorption (how like Trade goods are are being damaged from driving off-road instead of on smooth roads, trade goods disappear when they are damaged)
  • Defense Points (how much damage wagon can absorb before it looses durability, damage can come from Bandits and - once a driver hits level 45 - from other players)
  • Hitpoints

Wagon Upgrades

Wagons can be upgraded for speed and weight capacity by wagon parts. Wagon parts are always restricted by wagon type (2-wheeler or 4-wheeler): You can put any 2-wheeler part on any 2-wheeler wagon but can not have a 2-wheeler part on a 4-wheeler wagon and vice versa.

  • Cover: increases DP & Impact Absorption (10-34)
