Elvia Realm - Calpheon

Introduction

The Elvia Realm - Calpheon is more difficult, high end versions of low level Calpheon grind spots! 
  • The Calpheon Elvia Realm are all focused around mid to high end solo grind spots 
  • Alchemy Stone Upgrade Reforms can be crafted from materials that drop in Calpheon's Elvia Realm  
  • Calpheon Elvia Realm spots drop materials that can be used for Godr-Ayed Weapons 
  • Calpheon Elvia Realm has its own special mechanics that can increase your kill speed while grinding

 

Accessing Elvia Realm

To access the Elvia Realm you can use Esc - Adventure - Elvia Realm or just use the search function and search for Elvia

 

 

When you select it you'll be given a new UI window that will allow you to move into the Elvia Realm. Previously, Elvia could only be accessed on certain servers but this is no longer the case.

 

The Elvia Realm can now be accessed on all channels, this was done to provide more of the grind zones because they were so popular. 

 

 

To leave Elvia Realm again, check the top right of your screen, you'll see a new icon that will allow you to exit the Elvia Realm. 

 

 

When entering and exiting the Elvia Realm, your character will take a knee and there'll be a quick loading animation. 

 

 

Why Grind in Elvia Calpheon?

Calpheon Elvia has a pretty good variation in gear requirements, ranging from mid game to late game spots that require a higher gear score. 

 

The money per hour at these spots is pretty competitive, but they also come with unique mechanics and materials that can't be found outside of Elvia Calpheon. 

 

Once of these is for the Alchemy Stone Upgrade Reform stones, these enhance your Alchemy stone with up to +4 DP. 

 

 

Materials for the Godr-Ayed Weapons (the alternative way to progress through enhancing a BlackStar Weapon) are also found in Calpheon Elvia Realm. 

 

 

Calpheon Elvia Realm Mechanics

While grinding at Calpheon Elvia Realm grind spots, a Distortion effect can occur which will alter the weather and world around you. 

 

 

These Elvia Distortions have a chance to spawn bosses and shadowy enemies called Shadow of Nightmares when grinding near to the distortions. 

 

If lightning begins to strike, Gigagord will appear. If it's an icy wind then the boss will be a Cylops and If a meteor falls from the sky, an Ogre boss monster will spawn.

Here's an image of the Elvia Distortions that you should grind near: 

Garmoth Black Desert Calpheon Elvia Elvia Distortions

 

Defeat the bosses of the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon to receive the "Corrupting Darkness" buff and "Remnants of Darkness" debuff.

 

  • Corrupting Darkness: increases the damage dealt to Elvia Calpheon monsters (as a 5 minute buff)
  • Remnants of Darkness: This is a debuff that stops you obtain the Corrupting Darkness buff (for 30 minutes)

 

This basically functions similarly to Serendia Elvia Realm's weapon buffs. You also have a low chance of obtaining Ancient Spirit Light by grinding in Calpheon Elvia. 

 

Garmoth Black Desert Calpheon Elvia Ancient Spirit Light

 

Ancient Spirit Light increases the damage dealt to Elvia Calpheon monsters for 5 minutes as well. You'll need to use the item in your inventory to access the buff. 

It'll last for 6 hours in your inventory before expiring, make sure you use it while grinding so you don't miss out!

 

Calpheon Elvia Grindspots 

The locations for these grind spots are within the Calpheon region as the name might imply, but if you're thinking of grinding in these locations, chances are you know where they are. 

 

In this section there'll be a quick breakdown of grind spot mechanics as well as their current average drops. 

 

You can see an up to date version of the drops using our global grind tracker, here! 

 

Saunil Camp

The money per hour is pretty nice too, for a spot that only requires 250 AP / 330 DP it's not a bad option if you're looking for somewhere new to grind.

With the gear score requirements, this spot does have to compete with spots like Orc Camp from Serendia Elvia, but if you're looking for a nice spot with different mechanics or Calpheon Elvia loot, it's worth a try.

Hexe Sanctuary features a mechanic that focuses around harvesting souls, a boss mob will harvest these souls before attacking the player, after defeating the soul harvester, the Hexe witch will spawn.
