The Tag Character Option

Using the newly discovered Marni's Special Device, two characters will now be able to share a set of gear through the Tag Option. By using Marni's Unstable Fuel, an item purchasable at Old Moon Manager shops.


In order to unlock the Tag Character option, you must complete the questline "[Marni's Suspicious Device] A Splendid Deal" with a character Lv. 56 or higher. This can be found under the All tab under Black Spirit - Quests.

Item Copy Feature and Main character

Item Copy will require all gear equipped on the main character to have max durability recovered, and the selected tagged character will require 14 free slots of inventory space. The enhancement level, branding, socketed crystals, and Caphras Stone EXP will be copied exactly as is.

Once tagging is complete, you will see how much "Marni's Unstable Fuel" will be required to copy the gear to the selected character. All 4 pieces of armor, 3 weapons, 6 accessories, 1 tool, and 1 spirit stone equipped by the main character can be copied into the tagged character's inventory.


Marni's Unstable Fuel Cost to use Item Copy

You can purchase "Marni's Unstable Fuel" from Old Moon Managers located in major cities.

  • Steel in Serendia
  • Lajee in Calpheon 
  • Sahin in Valencia 
  • Zya in Kamasylvia

Un-Tagging and Partial Tagging

Please note that un-tagging your characters will delete all copied equipment and accessories. You cannot un-tag your character without first unequipping all copied gear, and you will be met with the following message:


Warning message on copied items

In regards to partial tagging, where an incomplete set of items is copied from the Main to a Tag character, if you later decide that you would like a full set or to tag with a different character, you will need to untag and have all copied gear deleted. We strongly advise caution when selecting which character you desire to tag and copy your gear onto, as once untagged you will need to pay for additional Marni's Unstable Fuels.

Please note that with the Transfer of Service of Black Desert Online to Pearl Abyss we are no longer able to assist with in-game related issues.
