Cookie Run: Kingdom Black Pearl Cookie Guide: How to unlock, Best Toppings, and more

Cookie Run: Kingdom released Black Pearl Cookie, which is a Legendary Ambush Cookie, back when Version 3.6’s “Legend of the Duskgloom Sea” came out. Black Pearl Cookie had a long-standing ground in the META initially, but as updates and new Cookies were released, she fell off a little.

The new Version 4.9 “A Mermaid’s Tale Part 1” has released a Soul Jam that can be equipped onto Black Pearl Cookie, buffing her kit and overall damage numbers. This guide will help you with how to build the Black Pearl Cookie, how to obtain her, and the ways to level her up. 

Black Pearl Cookie is a Legendary Cookie and hence can be obtained through the Gacha. Legendary and the Cookies above the Rarity get their Limited Rate Up Banner when they are initially released, where players need to obtain exclusive wish currency to pull for them. There is a pity system in these Rate-Up Banners hence players can get the guaranteed Cookie in the 250th pull. There are many ways to obtain her Soulstones such as, 

  • Guild Medal Shop: Available exclusively through joining a Guild. Players have to participate in Guild Battles to obtain the Heroic Medal currency to exchange with the Soulstones. Players can get 1 Soulstones for each purchase. The Shop will eventually Reset lasting 3 days each rotation.
  • Rainbow Shell Gallery: Located inside Touc’s Trade Harbor after you upgrade it. The soulstones can only be exchanged with the Rainbow Pearls currency which can be obtained by shipping various goods through the Ship Harbor. You can obtain 1 Soulstone Cookie. The Shop resets every 2 Days so players have to keep a lookout on which Soulstone Cookies comes out every rotation.

Character Introduction

There is something out there, hiding amidst the thick fog. Something ominous, capable of swirling all-consuming whirlpools and raising gigantic waves on a whim… The tale of Duskgloom Sea is true, you see, and its dark waters will reach every grain of sugar in your dough and silence your last scream…

It will be wise to avoid these treacherous waves – for their ruler can toss and wreck even the mightiest of ships as if they were mere toys. It is said that kind-hearted mermaids once served as the ocean’s caregivers and protectors, but here in the Duskgloom Sea, you will find only dark grudges.

Nobody knows the reason behind Black Pearl Cookie’s century-old wrath, but with her on the underwater throne of wreckage, the Duskgloom Sea has gained its notoriety as the abyssal graveyard. She does not seek affection nor understanding, but then what is it that Black Pearl Cookie is looking for? What can pacify her cries of desperation?

Name Description Explanation

Duskgloom’s Sovereign
Dives into the abyss and shifts into her true form, creating a whirlpool storm that deals periodic damage and drags in even enemies resistant to interruptions. Enemies, terrified of the Cookie’s giant size, suffer from Terror of the Abyss. If Terror of the Abyss is dispelled, the target will be inflicted with true damage proportional to the target’s Max HP. Being the ruler of the abyss herself, Black Pearl Cookie is resistant to all Fear effects. The maximum amount of damage proportional to the target’s HP is 300,000. (Cooldown: 15 seconds) When Black Pearl Cookie transforms into her true form, she creates a powerful whirlpool storm. This storm hurts enemies over time and pulls them in.
Enemies get scared because of Black Pearl Cookie’s massive size, and this fear is called “Terror of the Abyss.” If someone manages to remove this fear effect, the enemy takes true damage based on how much health they have. Black Pearl Cookie is like the boss of the abyss, so she can’t be scared by fear effects from others. However, the most damage the fear removal can cause is 300,000 HP.

Crystal Jam

Crystal Jams act similarly to Magic Candies where they can be equipped to Cookies in order to buff their kit significantly. Crystals Jams are exclusive to Cookies whose Rarities are above Epic such as Legendary, Super Epic, Ancient, Dragon, etc.

Name Description Explanation

Duskgloom Hatred
Black Pearl Cookie’s hatred is deeper than the deepest ocean! The sovereign of the Duskgloom Sea will decrease her targets’ ATK with her skill and gain stacks of Hatred during the battle. At maximum stacks, her skill will be enhanced. For each ally Cookie defeated, Black Pearl Cookie will gain an increased number of Hatred stacks. The enhanced skill will now trap its targets in the Water Cage, dealing periodic damage for the duration of the Water Cage. Additionally, Tornado will appear at the center of the Whirlpool, dealing extra damage.(Cooldown: 15 seconds) Black Pearl Cookie’s abilities center around her deep-seated Hatred mechanic: she can diminish enemy attack power and accumulates Hatred stacks as she fights, reaching peak power at maximum stacks. Defeating ally Cookies further boosts her Hatred. With full Hatred stacks, her skill upgrades to ensnare enemies in a damaging Water Cage that inflicts periodic harm, amplified by a central Tornado. This Tornado will deal extra damage.

Black Pearl Cookie has an assortment of Toppings to choose from depending on what you prefer in her build. Additionally, after the Version 4.9 update, all Cookies or non-cookies that are released and have ties with the ‘A Mermaid’s Tale‘ storyline will be able to use the Sea Salt Resonant Toppings. These Toppings work just like the Moonkissed Toppings where the damage multipliers are boosted up from regular Toppings. 

Black Pearl Cookie can use a total of 3 different Toppings, although it is not necessary to have a full set of them all. The most recommended Topping to equip is the Swift Chocolate Toppings in order to reduce Black Pearl Cookie’s 15-second long cooldown and enable her Skill to be used more frequently in battles.

The second option would be to equip Searing Raspberry Toppings. The go-to is to equip a mixture of SR Toppings and SC Toppings to gain both ATK and reduce Cooldown. Black Pearl Cookie is an Ambush Cookie and hence inflicts high amounts of DMG esp with the Crystal Jam buff she received as of now. Stacking her with ATK is viable.

Lastly, players can also equip Solid Almond Toppings coupled with the other Toppings as well. SA Toppings are mostly to help with her DMG resistance in order to be on the field in the battle longer. This is especially viable to use when you play Black Pearl Cookie in Kingdom Arenas for PvP battles.

Final Thoughts

Black Pearl received a significant buff due to the Crystal Jam that has been released in this update. Her placement in the META shot up high and with her busted kit and type, it seems like she may very well stay in this position for a prolonged time just like Stardust, Moonlight, etc. Of course, her Crystal Jam will be difficult to max out to reach her full potential but eventually, she will be used more frequently in Arenas.
