    Heh! A lot of people don't realize of the utility that Farming has to supply 3 professions at once: Trading, Cooking, and Alchemy by a big margin! It may seem slow but it isn't for as long you find a good location for your crops, it has a great number of benefits:
    Best Hard/Shard source income.Self-sustainable. Never pay a dime for seeds after your initial investment & you may never need to, just gather some bushes, trinkets and get seeds.Supplies with an abundant number of Fruit of XYZ used to create your own magic crystals.Hundreds if not thousands of fruit harvested ever day benefiting Cooking, Alchemy and Trading.Insane Weeds supply for alchemy.Minimal energy consumption at higher levels, i.e. 25% chance at Artisan 8~10 without compromising other gathering activities you perform.Allows you to do other things while crops grow in the background.I could be missing out other benefits, it's late here. I believe Alchemy is by a good margin better than Cooking, the downside is that you have to do more manual activities rather than keep workers collecting some ingredients for you, so it gets tedious for people and choose a lazier profession.

    As zeroisk pointed out, get back on your horse (not the one you just tamed) and ride to your desired stable , the wild horse will follow you regardless of your speed, and once you arrive, just wait until it appears right next to you.

  7. FayeAldridge added a post in a topic Horse Breeding - Fastest Way to Level Horse's   

    Hi,
    Welcome to the marvelous world of Black Desert Online! As many have already pointed out around the forum, (and you would have been able to figure this out with a 1-minute testing on the road by simply taking a watch and time the lenght in seconds for each tick of EXP on a single horse vs Wagon) it is faster to level up horses by using a wagon, keeping in mind that is faster only if you use 3 ~ 4 horses at once, Merchant/Noble wagon won't change drastically the efficiency between them to be too noticeable within a single day but in the long term (Talking about acumulated time training i.e. 8h every day until you form a day, a week, a month and so forth) you get to the it's benefit on the Merchant wagon for being faster.
    If I have mistaken the information, please correct me!
    As for the breeding levels, you can take a look at the most famous calculator for horse breeding and find out what are the best levels for the horses and not spend extra time leveling for no benefit whatsoever: http://www.somethinglovely.net/bdo/horses/

    Hi,
    Your account with all its content should still exist on the server, however, you can not apply for a new guest pass into the same account, and neither you can utilize the 7 day trial they now offer on the website, your only options are:
    Start fresh new on a new account. Purchase the game from within your old account.Find a player willing to send you a Gift pack which is a code that grants them a pet and you get to unlock the game on your account via the code they will provide to you.Cheerios ~♥

    Do keep in mind that the 500m nerf we received was to reduce the EXP obtained, players abused of this method as it was the fastest way to reach Master 2 in Trading within a few days and all you had to do was roll with items. However, to this day, there's still people rolling their way to Master 2 by just traveling to a further distance than 500m.
    I'll be honest, this method is just a clear exploit of features in the game, it wasn't developed to be this way, but it was easier to nerf than to solve it by coding it all over. I don't advise anyone to do it regardless of being tolerated by the devs and managers, there's a reason why wagons and elephants were created, to begin with.
    If you want to keep it legitimately, start collecting tier 1 materials via workers (ore, timber, plants, shrooms, etc.) and craft 20,000 or more crates, then sell them to reach Master 2. (KEEP IN MIND I'M NO EXPERT AT THIS, I'M SURE THERE'S BETTER WAY TO ACHIEVE THIS SO ANYONE IS WELCOME TO CORRECT ME)

    Hi,
    There are so many places to grind, I don't understand why people continues to travel only to Sausan and Pirate Island when players have proven that there are indeed many more areas where one can grind and have equal effectiveness income/h. I'm sure you can find many locations explained here in the forum with the search. Based on your equipment strength and performance with your main class, you can opt to grind in Valencia and/or many other areas from Mediah territory.
    When it comes to Fishing and Trading, those fields are out of my knowledge to advise people, but I do maintain a small concept in mind about Fishing however, so you can do as Vultr said: When fishing, I assume you do it manually, white rarity fish is not bad, as it is often an ingredient for seafood cooking recipes, and it's advised to dry it, it will save you inventory space and you can stack it for cooking at a later point. Imperial Cuisine is wonderful! You can use the fish saved and cook what's needed for some immediate income (you may well just sell the food via MP but it takes time, Imperial is instant cash at a slightly less value). Fishing is great, you can dry every fish you capture, and they all sell, I always managed to sell every fish I captured while in the ocean journeys so that's money you can obtain as well, it should also provide some Processing exp while doing so.
    However, I do find fishing to be best performed if you investigate the hotspot locations prior to depart in your boat, fishing via this method is not only superb but the best income you can obtain from it per hour, that's why it's difficult to find hotspots but you can try it, I believe there's 3 kinds of hotspots, Active, Passive and One-time-only.
    Active: These are hotspots that does not vanish as soon you arrive, they will provide you with yellow rarity fishes so the profit is high.Passive: These are always on, 24/7 and have a small chance at giving you the Coelacanth fish with 200,000 value, that's why many players fish at Velia shore, just left of the dock, that's a passive hotspot.One-time: This hotspot is awesome, you arrive and the seagulls will disappear right away, as well the fishes jumping off the water, and whoever hooks a fish first gets a Coelacanth! These types are best done with a Triple-Float Fishing Rod so you can capture 2~3 at once!As for Trading, you will have to search the forums, there's several guides and videos explaining how to efficiently level up the profession as well how to obtain 50m silver a day from Trading alone.

    Farming & Energy Consumed
    Hello, everyone!
    After some days wandering around the forum & Reddit, I found some people sharing information regarding the benefits of each level in professions (altho not quite complete).

    I wanted to evaluate the increases or changes we receive as we level up Farming, so far I only have registered this information on my sheet:

    I can no longer continue to update, no longer with time to carry on.

    UPDATE: 

    The % chance of consuming energy has somewhat reached its peak? It retains itself in 27% with a minor .00 ups & downs, I added average seeds obtained, average fruit harvested as well how often we obtain that extra proc within the same loot.
    I'm not sure if every level will provide me with enough collective data to be precise but it should be more than needed to have an overall idea of that to expect (kind of average). And pardon me if I have mistaken any formula, ideas and opinions are welcome!
