Black Desert Online | Guaranteed Enhancement

Black Desert Online‘s latest patch has added a new feature called Guaranteed Enhancements, unfortunately these only work for items that aren’t accessories and from +13 to +15. So, it won’t help players attempting to get anything higher.

Performing this enhancement requires a certain amount of one of three magic black stone that depends on the item’s grade and takes 30 durability from the item.

Stones

Gear Grade
Stone
Green Stabilized Magic Black Stone
Blue Cleansed Magic Black Stone
Yellow Flawless Magic Black Stone

Stone Cost

Enhancement Level Stone Cost
+12 to +13
5
+13 to +14 8
+14 to +15 13

These specific Magic Black Stones drop from World and Field Bosses and cannot be put on the marketplace. Reformed Gear will use the same Gear Grade’s black stone as the original item for enhancements.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 | PC Open Beta

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Weekend 2 Private Beta is currently live for Playstation, Xbox and PC which will end on August 13th at 10 AM. In order to get into the Private Beta for Playstation and Xbox, players would have to pre-order the game, get lucky in code giveaways by Activision on social media and other new sites or be an Xfinity internet customer which is giving out codes here.

Luckily, there is a PC Open Beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 tomorrow starting at 10AM and ending on August 13th at 10 AM.

The Beta includes 4 maps: Playload, Contraband, Seaside and Frequency that can be played in these game modes: TDM, Control, Domination and Search & Destroy.

Maplestory | Lab Server & The Legion Block

The Lab Server for Maplestory is now open, it will be opened for 20 days or roughly 3 weeks and end on August 28th, right before server reset at 5 PM PDT.

Lab Server is a hardcore version of Maplestory where players can only pick an explorer classes, monsters HP are doubled and have 5 times their original stats. If the player dies anytime while playing in the Lab Server, there levels and stats will be reset to Lvl. 10. Plus, players are only limited to having one character. The Lab Server character will be erased when Lab Server ends.

Although this server is hard, a viable strategy is just to purposely keep dying because the game rewards the “Please stop dying” skill to players if they keep dying. The skill has a maximum of 100 levels and each level grants +1 Monster DEF Ignored, W.ATK +20, M.ATK +20 and it level up every 5 deaths. The levels for the skill are applied until after the daily reset and there is a cap per day. The maximum stats that I suspect that can be given by this skill is 2000 W.ATK/M.ATK and 105% Monster DEF Ignored.

The Lab Server can be accessed normally through Maplestory without needing to download a separate client. The Lab Server tab should be right after Reboot, it might be invisible leading players to have to tab through Servers to reach it.

Leveling Rewards

Now, why would players play a harder version of Maplestory that eventually go away? Because of the Legion Block. Playing Lab Server is the only way players can obtain the Legion Block that is used with Maple Legion.

  • [Lab Server] Lv. 150 Celebration Gift!: Reach Lv. 150 and receive:
  • Legion Block: This item will be sent to the world you select, after the Lab server event ends. (See more details below.)
  • Revive and Strengthen: Chair
  • Eternal Rebirth Flame (1 Day)

The Legion Block grants W.ATK, M.ATK and Maple Legion Board titles based on the highest level you character reaches in Lab Server. Players must reach Level. 150 to receive the first Legion Block then purposely die and accept the new quest that allows players to obtain the Enhanced Legion Block which gives more stats than the original Legion Block. The Quests that become available after dying at 150 are:

  • Complete ‘[Lab Server] Level 200 Survivalist!’:
    • Enhanced Legion Block: This item will be sent to the world you select, after the Lab server event ends. (See more details below.)
    • Eternal Rebirth Flame (1 Day)
  • Complete ‘[Lab Server] Defeat Lab Server Von Leon with the Strange PT Bottle’
    • Lab Server Master Crown
    • Eternal Flame Rebirth (1 Day) (x2)

It is very important to immediately accept the new quests right after dying as they become unacceptable if you level at all. Which is dumb, I guess.

The Enhanced Legion Block essentially just grants an extra 2 W.ATK and M.ATK at each threshold. (The website says “Highest Level reached” but I’m skeptical since why would they give stats to Lvl. 60, 100 and 140 threshold if players theoretically can’t get the legion block before 150? So they might be a chance that it’s not highest level reached but rather current level) The Legion Block will be sent to your choice of server after the event has concluded.
