  1. FluffyQuack added a post in a topic Please add an option to limit FPS while out of focus   

    This would be a nice feature. The game used to have a feature where it would automatically lower framerate during standby (I thought the option was still there, but I can't find it anymore), but reducing framerate while out of focus makes much more sense.

  2. FluffyQuack added a post in a topic PVE   

    You never see people do anything with those castles even if their guild owns them. You have to defend them during Saturdays, and beyond that, they have literally no use. Even guild houses have much more use than the castles (and you don't do anything in guild houses besides craft specific items).
    I don't know how it could be implemented, but I'd love to see bigger residences for players, something like a mansion or castle would be great.

    Really don't get how people never take a hint when its not happening, its been like this for a long time now, if they were adding a male version they would of done it a long time ago. Don't wanna be sounding like an ass-ho but this is just the truth.

  4. mate added a post in a topic Node 10 weirdness.   

    I have idea how could it work.
    There could be same mechanics used like when fishing on abundant spot.
    If you grind too much too often the abundant spot depletes. The level of node then could determine how long you can grind till node depletes or how fast it replenishes . Once depleted it doesnt matter if its 10 or 1
    I started to rotate grind spots so I dont grind at the same node all the time and it seems I get better drops. Sofar I am rotating basilisk lvl10, cadry lvl10, crescents lvl7. Later I will add  to my rotation ghaz lvl7 and pila ku lvl7.

    This x 104343453454354^5. There should be other ways to farm them instead of just gathering. Or perhaps a conversion from 100 weapons stones= 1 weapon concentrated stone, or something like that (just as an example).

  6. Quarry added a post in a topic Marketplace Pre-Order   

    The way I see it, just another RNG if it'll go to pre-order or not.
    Even tested the thing by trying to buy Nouver Knot from a friend 3x, none went to pre-order and went to bid phase, all given a different time when I placed a pre-order.
    Same thing with Tet Kzarka krieg,
    Don't think I've won any big items through it once, all had to be gotten from NV, boss loot, or won from bid phase.
    Definitely a big mess and should be reworked, but this is BDO, we need more content, not fixing our current problems in BDO

    You need to remain logged in for 1 hour to get the first one. You'll get another 1 per hour after that, up to a max of 5 per day. Yes, this means that if your client isn't on 6 hours a day you're missing out.

    Epheria Valley (Tier 1)
    Varshen Vs. Sinnfrei Vs. Exus Vs. WdG
    Our base was right outside of Calpheon, so of course Sinnfrei was attacking us from the safe zone, which was smart, but also very annoying for us. We decided to play very defensively for the first part of the war. After about an hour or so, we heard from the small attack force that we kept sending out that Exus and WdG were also engaging Sinnfrei, so we managed to push them back to their base and attack it with (almost) full force. Got some quick conversations with Exus and we coördinated the attack that took out Sinnfrei. Some of their members did seem very confused that we fought back. It seemed unfair that after they attacked us for an hour, we'd switch positions. Guess they didn't get the memo... weird, pretty sure I mailed it to them.
    Regardless, Exus then declined our offer to attack WdG (can't blame them, at this point we were the stronger guild left. We had to split forces once again but our small attack team took out WdG efficiently while defense held Exus back, and then we moved the fight to Exus and won the node about 10-15 minutes before the war ended.
    I want to shoutout to Exus and highly recommend it to any German looking for a guild with friendly players!

    Best thing to do is NOT expect anything when gathering, least what I do when I'm gathering hides.
    Gotten moments where I get from 0-7 in one go then moments where I get nothing for days, just rng being rng.

    The DP problem is clearly not a MMO issue, it's a BDO issue, tanks exists in other games you know (and they are not frequently of the cloth-wearing type either).

  17. Aquamire added a topic in Guild Recruitment   

    [EU] Looking for guild
    I recently returned to the game, and figured perhaps this time around it'd be worthwhile to join a guild.
    If my partner wishes to join with me, I'd appreciate that being a possibility. We're both very casual, and at lv56.
    I dislike speaking (discord/teamspeak), but am perfectly fine going on to listen - as long as I can mute myself
    I'm not a big fan of PvP, but am willing to try and learn. Activity varies; some days I might not feel like BDO.
    Like mentioned, I'm lv56, playing Dark Knight. I can't remember AP/DP on top of my head
    (i got stuck at Margoria sea and had to log while awaiting rescue cause im an idiot), but it should be around 116/213,
    which is not impressive at all, I know  I'd like a helpful and friendly guild who doesn't mind if I'm antisocial for a bit,
    where Node Wars etc isn't mandatory. Experienced members is a bonus, I'm pretty clueless about most things
    Reply here with some info on your guild or PM me ingame
    Fam.name: Aquamire
    Char.name: Aquamoore
    (should it be relevant -as i know some Guilds have a +18 rule- i'm 20y/o)

  19. Xarilith added a topic in Wizard/Witch   

    Quick question
    Returning player, just got back after about a year and really enjoying the game again with all the changes that have being brought in however:
    I've rolled 2 characters, a DK and Wizard (previously played Witch, preferred the look of awakening on the Wizard) however I'm noticing that pre-awakening my clear time with DK is MUCH faster than with my wizard, similar AP (108/110) and same DP (183) on both, DK is 55 and Wizard is 52. The only main difference is that the DK has a +14 Liverto and the Wizard has a +15 Rosar.
    Am I missing something or is pre-awakened DK just stronger? If so, I'll focus more on just leveling the Wizard rather than trying to earn some bank. I'm generally focusing on Lightening/Lightening Storm / Fireball (+explosion) and things (usually Manes) just aren't dying anywhere near as fast.

    Noone can force them out if they dont go on their own or if guilds ally up against them. No idea what you are talking about. Considering that they are that unexperienced they were very well structured during sieges.

    finally someone who uses the offhands the right way lol.
    I don't use nouver just because I prefer using kutum or rhik vs low evasion target, I just don't feel the need to boost the ap even more, trading for more valuable stats like DP/eva and ignore resists, but that's me.
    and yeah, the helrick is definitely insane and underrated, i love to use that in RBF, too much evasion/tet gear there lol

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

    there's an exploit where they get SA while standing on 1 place/walking around and it has something to do with these block things
    i sat in arena and hit someone 20 times without ccing him and intentionally abusing bugs like this is considered an exploit and should be reportable and bannable.. 
    (the moving while block is a whole other thing)
