General Information[edit]

  • Black World Tendency increases enemy capacity to inflict damage and number of souls available. It also yields better item drops, especially for ore. *Black Phantom versions of normal enemies have a 100% drop rate for their primary items.
  • To maintain Pure Black World Tendency in a world, you must not visit the Nexus after defeating a boss, a Primeval Demon or a Black Phantom NPC. *Additionally, World Tendency drifts toward the server median whenever you log on. That means that Pure White or Pure Black worlds may be shifted just by logging on in online mode.
  • All Primeval Demons shows up one World Tendency lighter than Pure Black, but they are still present at Pure Black World Tendency.
  • All unique NPC Black Phantoms require Pure Black World Tendency to appear.

A Note on Black World Tendency Events in Latria
  • In Latria it is impossible to go from 3-2 back to 3-1, without going by the Nexus.
  • Most players will want to defeat both the NPC Black Phantom and the Primeval Demon in one go, to avoid achieving Black World Tendency more than once.
  • It is therefore advisable to start from 3-1 and take out Black Phantom Lord Rydell first, then move into 3-2 to deal with the Primeval Demon.
