Black Desert Mobile Node War Tips: What to bid?

What are Node Wars in Black Desert Mobile?

Node war is one of the most important PVP events in Black Desert Mobile, that requires not only skills, but communication and strategies between guild members. The siege of nodes takes place every day except Saturday, at 22:00. In case of failure, the guild may take part in the siege of another node the next day.

Up to 3 guilds can take part in Node War (per node). The participants will be chosen based on bids. If a guild is occupying a node, there will be 2 other guilds in contest to fight the defending guild over the node.

Node War lasts 2 hours or until one victorious guild remains on the battlefield. If, after two hours, there are more than 1 guild remaining on the battlefield, the node becomes a draw.

There is a minimum of 10 members required to participate in Node Wars. If a guild fails to supply with the amount of players, they will be banned from participating/bidding on nodes for 7 days.

There are 3 levels of nodes on the map – Level 1, 2, and 3. The higher the level, the more taxes you can collect from the nodes.

1. You must build a fortress (100%) before the Node War starts in order to be eligible.

2. You can build a fortress only in one of the Lv. 1, 2, or 3 nodes.

3. In order to build a fort, you need at least 10 online members.

4. If you succeed in occupying one node, you can build an additional fort on a different node the next day. Max node occupation is 2. The additional node must be of the same level or higher level than the first node. 

5. You can see the forts of other guilds once the Node War commences. You will have to scout the area to be able to see them on the world map.

6. All forts and annexes will disappear upon the node’s emancipation (meaning more than 1 fort exist).

7. There is no penalty for death.
