Affinity is a relationship mechanic in Black Desert that lets the players form relationships with some NPCs by performing certain tasks. To confess your feelings to the NPC, you must have 1000 Amity points and 5 energy, after which the NPC can become your partner. Thus, you will get the title of "lover of" but your Amity will be decreased by 10%. A rejection will get you nothing and your Amity will reduce by 5%.

Relationships last a week, during which the player cannot confess their feelings to other NPCs. Other players will confess their feelings too, and the player with the highest Amity will maintain the relationship for an extra week. If you have low Amity, the NPC will enter a new relationship with someone else, and you'll receive a break-up mail from them. The conversations between NPCs take place by having mini-game conversations and giving gifts.

You can gift NPCs anything, but giving the items they like will grant you extra affinity points. Giving these NPCs gifts will result in a better relationship, giving discounts on goods, exclusive items tied to the NPC, knowledge about our character, and even new quests. Each NPC can accept or reject the relationship, depending on how you treat them. Here are all the relationships that can be formed in Black Desert.
