Captain & Lieutenants

Guild Masters of the leading guild have the option to either designate captains or take on the role themselves, letting them control the battlefield.

 

Captains gain access to the tactical map, which lets them see live updates during the war, as well as some unique skills.

 

As mentioned on the above table, Captains must be selected by Sunday at 01:05 PM (PST) for NA and Sunday at 15:05 CET for EU

 

Captain Role

A captain can be appointed to Kamasylvia & O'dyllita and can then use the tactical map to issue orders and set objectives for the Third Legion to work towards during the war.

 

Captains also gain access to exclusive skills that will grant their faction benefits in battle that we'll go over later. 

 

Black Desert War of the Roses UI

 

Captains can place leading guild members and Third Legion mercenaries into platoons, and only captains can set and edit the platoons.

 

You can edit platoons even while a war is on going, but you can't remove platoon members once war has begun.

 

You cannot edit Third Legion platoons that have been assigned with missions.

 

Captains can follow allies on the tactical map, along with occupied points, while continuously issuing/canceling missions to the Third Legion. (Canceling a mission will deem it completed.)

 

Lieutenant Role

Captains of each faction's leading (captain's) guild can appoint three lieutenants. While they don't have quite as many abilities or options as Captains, Lieutenants can help with the war's tactics. 

 

Lieutenants can also assign orders and various missions to members of the Third Legion via the tactical map.

 

Third Legion Missions

The Third Legion make up the majority of players and are able to operate freely within the war area, facing various enemies and situations. You can earn more rewards by completing missions assigned by your faction.

 

During the preseason period, mission completion rewards will not be applied

 

Adventurers participating as members of the Third Legion can go on missions assigned by the captain, which may be completed at a platoon level. The six types of missions are as follows.

 

Depending on which mission is selected for a given location (attack, defense, or enemy suppression), the Third Legion can be assigned one of the following six missions.

 

Sanctum Attack Capture a specific sanctum within 10 min.
Sanctum Defense Defend a specific sanctum for 10 min.
Defeat a Commander Defeat a Commander within 10 min.
Protect a Commander Protect a Commander for 10 min.
Defeat Enemies (x40) Eliminate 40 enemies within 10 min.
Spirit's Altar Activation Activate the Spirit's Altar for your faction within 10 min.

 

Missions performed at platoon level can only be carried out one at a time, and multiple missions are impossible.

 

Missions can continuously be assigned and completed. The more successful missions, the higher the rewards.

 

War of the Roses Area

The War of the Roses takes place over sections of Kamasylvia and O'dyllita territories. There are no safety zones in the War of the Roses - the entire map becomes a combat zone.

 

Ornette & Odore Castles have stable keepers and wharf managers in certain spots available while Old Wisdom Tree and Starry Midnight Port also have stable keepers and wharf managers available.

 

Black Desert War of the Roses Battlefield

 

Players will be instantly transported within their faction's castle walls at the war's start if they're not already there.

 

Your can get blessings from your faction commander by standing near them before heading out to different sanctums.

 
Kamasylvia Faction O'dyllita Faction
Narchillan's Blessing
(Effect: Extra AP Against Monsters +30 for 10 min)
Sephir's Blessing
(Effect: Extra AP Against Monsters +30 for 10 min)
 

Ranks & Simplified Family Info

When taking part in the War of the Roses, players nameplates will be simplified as the following during the war:

 

  • Faction (Kamasylvia: White Rose Legion / O'dyllita: Black Rose Legion)
  • Rank (Based on performance, but Captain/Lieutenant remains fixed)
  • Family Name

 

Earn higher ranks by defeating players of the opposite faction to gain higher ranks that will display on your simplified Family info.

 
Black Desert War of the Roses Ranks

 

Hero Devourer Elite Champion Champion
100 kills 50 kills 30 kills Base rank

 

Sanctums and Monsters 

Occupied sanctums are strategic points across the map that grant beneficial buffs to allies (faction and the Third Legion) and serve as resurrection points.

 

Players can use these buffs to gain the upper hand and ultimately defeat the opposing faction's commander.

 

However any interruptions between occupied sanctums may cause you to lose all buffs.

 

Sanctums & Guardians

There are 20 sanctums in the War of the Roses, 18 of them will have different monsters spawning at each sanctum.The other 2 sanctums are occupied in the beginning by each faction.

 

Black Desert War of the Roses Tactical Map

 

The 20 sanctums consist of N (Narchillan) 1 to 10, S (Sephir) 1 to 10, and the Spirit's Altar (center)

 

Once the war starts, Faded Relics will spawn at each neutral sanctum, which will remain passive to adventurers. 

 

If a sanctum is occupied by the opposing faction, you will need to defeat all monsters that have spawned at that sanctum.

 

Once all monsters have been cleared, an allied guardian monster will spawn affiliated to the newly re-occupied sanctum.

 

Guardian monster types are fixed based on each sanctum.

 

Kamasylvia Faction Guardian Monsters O'dyllita Faction Guardian Monsters
Urugon, Ronin, Narc Brishka, Old Mirumok,
Fadus Warrior, Fadus Shaman, Fadus Archer
Olun's Golem, Ulutuka, Turo Berserker, Dark Knight,
Ahib Salun Wolf Spearmaiden, Ahib Salun Bear Spearmaiden, Ahib Dark Champion
 

You can only conquer sanctums that are closest to a sanctum occupied by your faction. Defeating monsters in any other sanctums will not let your faction occupy them.

 

Each time your faction occupies a sanctum, allies in your faction will obtain one of the following passive effects. 

You can check the tactical map to see which sanctum grants which passive effect.

 

Sanctum Passives
AP +28
Damage Reduction +24
Black Spirit's Rage Recovery +1% per 10 sec
All Resistance +5%
HP +2,000
Movement Speed +5%
Attack Speed +3%
Accuracy +28
Evasion +24

 

Spirit's Altar

The guards of the faction castles are powerful monsters, but do not respawn upon defeat. Defeating them while under the effects of the Spirit's Blessing is important for winning in the War of the Roses.

 

There is only one Spirit's Altar during the war, and you must transfer enough Black Spirit's Rage into the monsters spawned around the altar to occupy it.

 

The Spirit's Altar gives powerful buffs and spawns Ancient Chariots, Ancient Trolls, and elephants.

 

Once the Spirit's Altar is activated, it cannot be re-occupied for 20 minutes, and you can check the timer on the tactical map.

War of the Roses - Victory Conditions

The goal of the War of the Roses is to defeat the opposing faction's commander, either Narchillan or Sephir, who are located within their castle walls. 

 

Controlling more sanctums will provide advantage in local skirmishes, helping you across the battlefield as a whole. 

 

If both commanders remain standing at the end of the War of the Roses, the faction whose commander has the highest HP wins.

 

Commander Narchillan of Ornette Castle

 

 

Commander Sephir of Odore Castle

War of the Roses Penalties 

There are penalties in place for different violations while participating in the War of the Roses, this is to reduce AFK players or non-participation, the following count as violations: 

 

  • Not connected to the War of the Roses server (O'dyllita-1) for more than 10 minutes.
  • No character movement for more than 10 minutes during the War of the Roses.
  • Moving out of the war area for more than 10 minutes or 10 times.

 

When you leave the war area, a warning will be displayed on the minimap at the top right of the screen.

 

When you are out of the area for more than 1 minute, a warning message will be displayed, and you will receive the penalty if the message is shown 10 times.

 

 

When you receive the War of the Roses penalty, you won't be able to collect War of the Roses rewards or participate in the following 4 wars as part of the Third Legion. 

 

Penalized participant information (guild and Family details) will be shared with their faction's captain and lieutenants for the real-time platoon reorganization.

 

 

Repetitive Third Legion Participation Prevention

When selecting participants for the Third Legion in the War of the Roses, the following priorities are applied.

 

1st Priority Group (Third Legion first picks): Those who are not selected as the Third Legion in the last war

 

2nd Priority Group (when the 1st priority group is short on members): Those with a history of being selected as the Third Legion in the last war

 

If you participated in the previous war as part of the Leading Guild (alliance), you will be considered the 1st priority group when applying as the Third Legion in the next War of the Roses.

 

For example:

Preseason Round 1 - Selected for the Third Legion

Preseason Round 2 - 2nd priority group for the Third Legion

Preseason Round 3 - 1st priority group for the Third Legion

 

Adventurers who've received a penalty as the Third Legion cannot join as part of a leading guild.          

 

War Correspondent 

There is also a way for adventurers with the War Correspondent title to view the status of the war via ESC - War - War of the Roses UI.

 

They can check the Tactical Map and overall sanctum occupation status/HP while on the O'dyllita server during the war via the War of the Roses UI.

 

They can also receive messages on the bottom right on the faction skills used by the captains of each faction.

 

But Abusing the rights of the War Correspondent will result in the removal of the title and rights.
