  6. mangojuiceee added a post in a topic Year 2 Mega Horse Breeding Thread   

    After the past week of failures today I checked on my t6 male lvl 25 x t6 female lvl 29 out came a T7J female.   So question now is if I want a shot at T8 should I lvl the t7 female to 30 and attempt 2x with my t7 male at lvl 30?  Or do T7 (lvl30) X T6(lvl 27+) ?   If I do the T7XT6 I can attempt 4 tries at 8% for a Male T8 ( 2 breeds with t7 male, and 2 breeds with the new t7J once I get her to lvl 30).   The T7XT7 would give me only 2 tries but with a 28% chance at a T8.   So all you veteran breeders, what you guys think is the better route at the T8 attempt?   Thx in advance =)

  7. andy1213 added a post in a topic Looks like Wizard is still the most op in bdo- and perhaps of any game ive played   

    Inb4 "Wizard is a class that takes real skill, I die more than any other class because I'm a weak liberal SJW male"
    You can't fail hard on this class. If you use "1v1s" as an excuse to justify Wizard's design (when there is supporting evidence that Wiz/Witch can hold their own in 1v1s, and when in reality you're a beta male loser who can't L2P and needs mommy and daddy to hold your hand cause you're a weak socialist loser as a reason to why you defend Wizard's design) you have absolutely no logic and are not smart enough to participate in an actual "debate"
    I CANNOT believe that they would make an even more retarded awakening than Ranger and Giant back when I made a thread that criticized KR developers for their weak principles. I repeat, I CANNOT believe it.

    well farming is now related to our horse breeding
    And, my phenom luck with the T8-T6 breeding ran out today, I think I got reinfected with the T6 femalecurse again.  Got a female T6N (my fave skin, these horses have been very good to me) and a female T6R.  The T6Rs are just lovely looking horses, prob my fav appearance-wise, it is just too bad that their stats are so horrible.

    Few general questions about end game!!
    So I am a new player and I am trying to decide what class to play. I was wondering to help me decide, what do you mostly do end game in BDO.
    Will I mostly be doing PvE or PvP?
    Is it mostly solo or group PvP?
    I havent played an MMO like this before so I know its not like WoW where you either tank dps or heal at end game no matter what.

  14. andy1213 added a post in a topic DP Still useless in End Game PvP   

    Full TET Armor, and still getting bursted within 2 seconds. Don't tell me that "this is an irrelevant old video with an old patch," Lacari (I know he's a bad player but he has gear so) is 3/4 TET and 1 TRI ARMOR and he still gets bursted within seconds by RANDOM WIZARD CLEAVE in RBF. And don't tell me that "he should go full DP" try bursting or counter-pressuring (generating threat level) someone with 130 AP. You can't do it, full DP is not viable. The best build in the meta right now is Play a DPS class > Stack Evasion + Lots of AP [Try to get TRI OGRE TRI CRES] > Proceed to faceroll. I'm talking about BS with a .5 to 2 second burst mechanics such as Maewha/Sorc/Wiz/Witch. Mostly the retard classes on the bold fonts though, these classes are god tier right now once you reach the TRI OGRE TRI CRES.
    Like I'm all for build variety but the WHOLE system needs to change before they make DP viable. It's disgusting how bad the balance in this game now, I legitimately thought there wouldn't be a more braindead awakening that would come out after I made a thread criticizing KR devs through Ranger and Giant's design. And then they come up with Wizard (and potentially DK awakening).
    This game is legitimately an FPS game which is an easier more retarded version of FPS games.
    TL;DR Let BDO be your last KR game. There is something about their culture that makes the games that they design absolute garbage. You can't really call BnS or cabal or games with actual good principles KR games though. I'm sure some games can be great even though they were made by a Korean person like BnS which is technically Western in "spirit," but this game is literally a fail culture and there is too many supporting evidence that backs it up.
    What else do you pve + lifeskill for, pvp right? And then you see how bad PvP is.

    Beginner's Serendian Soldier Suit Dye Bug
    I have a character wearing the soldier suit costume and the pirate bandana, For some reason when I go to dye the soldier suit it wants to include the bandana, and I can't dye the bandana separately (when I select it and click on one of the area dots nothing flashes). If I unequip the soldier suit I can color the bandana, but re-equipping the soldier suit changes the bandana color to match. I haven't tried with any other headgear (may go do that now) but in any case this sounds like a bug. The soldier suit doesn't include any headgear, the tooltip doesn't say anything about using the costume head slot, so why is it trying to dye a totally separate item?

    Returning player not knowing where to start!!!
    So I tried BDO at launch and played for about a month or two but due to having a new baby and moving home unfortunately I didnt have time for gaming for the last nearly year but now that I am settled I am back.
    My problem is that I have 5 characters as I wanted to try all classes, highest level is 32. but i feel like its all a mess that cause I just logged in I dont even know where to start.
    What should I do? Should I just delete all characters and start fresh, or just continue on one of the ones I have now. Im very unfamiliar with controls and where to go and what to do etc, Its been so long its like I have only just installed the game now. What do you guys recommend I do please?

    The Cherry Blossoms brought it, it must be.  The same thing happened in the fall with the Autumn trees and I didn't have it so bad with the snow.  But since Wednesday and those lovely trees.....good grief, can't train a horse more than 5 minutes before it stops.  Tons of lag which I don't usually experience.  Buy something and it shows up 5 seconds later, eat something and it is gone in my bag but no buff until 5 seconds later, gather and nothing to collect for 5 seconds......everything I do is getting this lag.
    At least it's not just me.
