Nov 16, 2022

Manhattan Beach, CA — November 16, 2022 — Today, Pearl Abyss launched Black Desert Online’s third co-op dungeon, Atoraxxion: Yolunakea, where five players can explore a lush forest and battle the deadly final boss, Amarillos. The company also recently announced the Arena of Arsha: Best-in-Guilds tournament, which will pit teams representing the top guilds in North America and Europe against each other.

Atoraxxion: Yolunakea

Enter Yolunakea to learn the story of Yolu, the dungeon’s architect, and solve puzzles before facing Yolu’s strongest weapon, the mechanical Amarillos. Yolunakea streamlines exploration following the two previous Atoraxxion dungeons, allowing players to take on the final boss more quickly and prove what they learned throughout the previous installments of Atoraxxion.

Players can access Yolunakea by completing the “[Atoraxxion] Talibre’s Tear” quest and interacting with the Sol Magia construction in the game. After completing the dungeon, players will receive Vaha’s Dawn, a special earring that grants significant additional attack power. 

New adventurers can prepare for Atoraxxion with this quick start guide:
