Introduction

File:QBn3gu8.jpg

The world map in Black Desert is a key tool for any traveler. Nodes are areas of important information and tools to use. You can display a Mini-Map in your HUD for a quick view of your surrounding area.

The most notable features of the map is houses that can be bought in many locations and workers who can work for you at activated nodes. Charting travel routes for quests, browsing the auction house and spending contribution to unlock more nodes are all integral to your success as an adventurer.

Calpheon, Valencia, Mediah, Serendia and Balenos are the main nations of the game.

In the Valencia region your map will be unusable while in the Black Desert so it is strongly advised to stock up on supplies before going through it.
