Every Capital City within Black Desert can be ruled over by a Guild, and thereby the leader of said Guild is established as Lord of the city. This allows the collection of taxes and setting up percentage of the taxes, as well as a few additional benefits covered in the Siege portion of the wiki.
Δ Accessible via interacting with the Lord of a Capital City.
Interacting with the lord of a Capital City will provide you with a window that lays out in detail the current taxes, level of unrest, and the guild that currently owns the city.
- Current Taxes explains the percentage of monetary gains being deducted from transactions within the city and given to the guild bank of the ruling party. (Taxes can be set from 0 to a maximum of 10 percent)
- The level of unrest allows you to see the status of the citizens within the city and their relative happiness. A low happiness directly impacts the maximum amount of revenue earned by the ruling party, and also spreads in a positive or negative manner dependent on the actions taken by said party.
