     This is why people have reservations about this vvv
    I don't mind entering contest like this one and the fan made trailer contest. Honestly, I'd love to. But not at the expense of having the company essentially 'steal' it from you legally. If anything, I'd say the fan made trailers and the guides are gonna be put up in steam for their black desert online page which none of us can transfer our accounts to (cause they don't wanna give steam a cut of the pearls bought even though they have a probably more secure way of paying for it than their shitty paymentwall)

    I was honestly thinking of entering both this and the helping guide contest, but instead got a full load of shit from that disclaimer. YOU'RE MAKING US ADVERTISE THE DAMN GAME FOR YOU AGAIN!? WHY NOT DO IT YOURSELF!?

    Afaik, they've removed it along with the black spirit quest rework a while back. You used to be able to replay the cutscenes on alts. Not anymore...that black spirit rework was a mistake imo

    I knew this was gonna be a problem when they redo the pre50 black spirit quest line.
    What you're trying to get is basically the knowledge from the end of the original black spirit main story questline (great story, unfortunately the quests were not connected very well) pre-50. I've tried to do the quest line myself and I only manage to get to Keplan - which, I suppose, is where the knowledge you need starts >.>...err, doesn't help, does it?
    Before the rework, to be able to get to lvl 50 onwards, you needed to kill Belmorn, Monarch of Darkness. But because they changed all that to some random catfish prince or whatever, I guess they removed the Ancient Light scroll which summons him (which is the only way to get the Belmorn knowledge, i think). Soth the Relic at Trina Beacon Mounds, try going up there and interact with the Relic - it's just past the fort if you haven't been there; also the node manager for the node and see if it gives you an option for it (spoiler: black spirit wanted you to let it absorb the power in ithe relic but instead you saved orwen and jordine too from the remnants of belmorn -- was the original cutscene that plays there)
    Sorry for the long post. I don't know if it helps (suggestions basically at the end)

    yeah, it's the gear gap that's actually making it hard to defend yourself in the game. I mean, sure, let's go at it kill each other. But then you get clobbered much like how you can easily kill the mob in the area and all the fun is actually out of the window.
    I'm probably gonna be duo forever :feelsbadman:

    Open world pvp is one of the main aspect of bdo. Putting more penalty on the Karma system for neg players is like saying they need to be set on fire while they're already burning.
    edit: also it actually takes around...5-6 kills? Before a player goes negative. Still doesn't stop them tho

    Okay, read more of the replies here. I think people are more salty at the fact that the OP mentioned the 'rewards' of PKers and his proposal to fix it.
    I think we can all agree that the system has flaws. But it doesn't mean that it doesn't do it's job. For one, it takes a very very very long time to grind back all the Karma from the max neg karma you can get. Never really experienced that, but I know a few guildies of mine had to plow through a lot of mobs just to grind back karma...and maybe do the quest for em too (at least that's what i read). So during that time, they can actually lose a lot.
    The system itself does its job, alright. But thing is, we can't do anything about very geared a--holes that just goes to contested areas (most notably Sausans) just for the sake of PKing (again, I actually have a guildie who does this. I don't understand why >.>)
    To be honest, I miss the time when gear was capped at +15 because everyone has a chance to get to it and when go on pvp, it's more skills than gear...(okay, let's be honest, that time had a few broken classes that can one-shot people...but still - a bit more about skill than gear) These days, gear is basically a money sink. I admit I hate this gear system but I knew what I was getting into. Still here a year later, after all

  8. freymarch added a post in a topic I've had it with random PKers...   

    Okay, let me just say that I'm also mostly a PvE player, mostly lifeskills lately cause I'm bored. I don't like PvP in this game for the sole reason of it's mostly gear2win. I've had a few chars past 56 (gonna go to 56 for my DK soon) and that I've experienced just about all aspect in the game, more than I'd like to. I've also met a lot of a--hole players who will kill the hell out of me without warning and I've also tried to kill people with successes and more failures than I'd like to admit.
    Now that I got that out of the way, let me put my take on this thread.
    - The game is advertised as having Open World PvP, can't do anything about that.
    - It's not true that they are rewarded for Pking other people. If anything, it shits on them. While you lose nothing for getting killed, once they're red, they have a chance to lose a few % of exp, shatter their gems, drop trade items, and I think de-grade enhancement. With the Karma system, from my understanding, you can get around 5-6 kills before you get red? I'm not sure, other people probably have more understanding of it than I do
    - As it is, the update that basically made it so whoever gets PKed (who isn't flagged) doesn't lose any exp gave rise to Karma bombers. Not gonna lie, I do it when I absolutely need to.
    - When grinding, I tend to stay away from heavily populated areas like Pirates/Sausans. I do go around Valencia when I need to grind past 56.
    - Okay, I'll admit that I'm lazy so I mostly just don't bother with PKers. They kill me? Fine, I'll find an odd spot that I can grind in my own pace. Cause chances are, other people have better clear speed than I do, so feeling that a grind spot is wasted on me, I just let them be. That's unless I'm doing a quest - which is when I announce it to people. They usually leave me alone. USUALLY. 
    - When grinding, do be mindful of your clearspeed versus other people's clearspeed. Chances are, if they're better geared, they have better clearspeed. Don't let the mobs be wasted. They're rich in exp after all.
    - I know how you feel about getting killed by randoms, but in all honesty, you can't change people's attitude about this no matter what. Before the game was released (i'm not sure if you were here then) a lot of people were offering the same kind of 'fix' to what is basically a free-for-all game. 
    - I'm actually just glad they remove the exp penalty for dying from PKing. >.>

    Welp, there's my opinion on this. Hope it gives you an understanding of someone who's in sort of the same boat as you but doesn't get angry about it anymore.
