  2. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Harpooning on a Sailboat 😟   

    Currently, yes they can only be used on Fishing boats, and yes we have reported this to the developers regarding use on the newer ships. As of this moment I don't have any news that can be shared on this front, should that change I'll be happy to let you folks know.

  3. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic BDO goes Play to Win   

    This type of topic has been dissected, discussed, been beat to death, resurrected, and then beat to death again. We appreciate your enthusiasm to bring it up again with an entirely new thread but please refrain from doing so when other threads are still available and open.

  4. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Can we talk about the 10,000 hour reward?   

    There are some interesting suggestions here, some might be aiming a tad high on the overall value in comparison to other similar rewards. Still, I'll include them along with our report, bear in mind any changes may take some time to make their way into the game as the developers have plenty of content in the works.

  5. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Thanks for the voices Kakao!!!!   

    Just wanted to verify, yes this is the technical limitations of the game currently. We spoke with the developer regarding the concerns expressed here, in which they confirmed this was intended and not a bug.

  11. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic How is the game P2W   

    Looks like the thread has had plenty of time for folks to express their opinions, and unfortunately stray into personal attacks and flames over civil discussion. I'll be closing it up here and offering my thanks to those who contributed in a civil manner. While it can be difficult, as I'm all too aware, you do need to respect that others may have a difference of opinion, which is not an invitation to openly attack them.

  13. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Patch Notes - March 29th 2017   

    I've made it a bit more clear now, since we already covered this in another thread. But just to be extra safe I'll include it here as well.
    There was an initial miscommunication about the release of Kamasylvia. This information was corrected a short while later and most sources updated accordingly, I'm not able to share any details regarding a release date at this time. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused and as always keep an eye out for the most up to date information in our Patch Notes and News & Announcements section of the forums.

    I believe things have been sufficiently covered by folks already about the item, and the deviation into one or two 1v1 arguments / flaming I'll be closing the thread.

    Greetings All,
    I just had a quick meeting with the team regarding the release of Kamasylvia, it looks as though there may have been a miscommunication as to when the content would be released. This information was corrected a short while later and most sources updated accordingly, I'm not able to share any details regarding a release date at this time. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused and as always keep an eye out for the most up to date information in our Patch Notes and News & Announcements section of the forums.

    Anniversary Gratitude Event [Updated - 3/28/2017]
    Greetings Adventurers,
     
    To finish off our Anniversary events, we’ll be hosting the One Year Anniversary NPC’s Gratitude Event! We know it sparked a lot of conversation during the Valentine’s Event with the popularity event; this event is similar but you will notice some key differences.
    Read below to learn more.

    1. One Year Anniversary NPC’s Gratitude Event!
    We’d like to thank you for providing an awesome first year since the launch of Black Desert online; we’ll be hosting an event in which you’ll be able to complete one of three quests for a prize!
    Start: Mar.8th, 2017
    End: Mar.22nd, 2017
    Additional Information: A limit of one quest per family.
    Event Details:
    Log in and complete one of the three event quests available from either; Lara, Grace Lauren, or Basquean Ljurik.
    Lara, Grace Lauren, Basquean Ljurik and 9 other NPCs, will now be found in the front of the major cities similar to the previous Valentine’s Day Event.
    Quest reward - [Event] Empty Pack (X10), Black Stone (Armor) (X5)
     
    During the event period [Event] Sweet Candy can be obtained from killing monsters in the game world, which can then be combined with [Event] Empty Pack provided by the event quest.
     


    Use Simple Cooking with [Event] Empty Pack (X10) and [Event] Sweet Candy (X20) to make [Event] Sweet Candy Pack (X1). Take the  [Event] Sweet Candy Pack to the NPC Bareeds III who can be found in any of the main towns for one of the rewards listed below.
     
    Reward - [One of the following]:
    Intermediate Accessory Box (X1)

    Players can only receive event rewards from only one of the two groups.
    Event Rewards will be distributed on March 29th April 5th during maintenance via in-game mail.
    Loyal Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert prior to January 1, 2017.
    Rookie Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert on or after January 1, 2017.
    Points accumulated prior to the start of the event still count towards the event.
    Update: The event reward will be distributed on April 5th during the maintenance via in-game mail.
    Loyal Adventurer Challenge
    Players who have joined Black Desert prior to January 1, 2017 can participate in this event and reach the house fame point conditions listed below to receive the corresponding prizes. Players can receive all the prizes up to the points they have reached. For example, if a loyal player reaches 800 points by the end of the event period, this player will receive the rewards for 600 points reached, 700 points reached, and 800 points reached.
    600 Points  = Black Stone (Armor) X10
    700 Points = Black Stone (Weapon) X10
    800 Points = [Event] Cold Dark Beer X10
    900 Points = Hard Black Crystal Shard X2
    1000 Points = Intermediate Accessory Box X1

    Rookie Adventurers are players who have joined Black Desert on or after January 1, 2017 can participate in this event to reach the house fame point conditions listed below to receive the corresponding prizes.

  17. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Valks Cry? Pls no   

    Looks like the thread has deviated substantially from the original purpose (which was to report an error in the game tool tip). Additionally the discussion has turned from critique on game systems to personal attacks, and will now be closed.

    While politics and drama are at times an unfortunate inevitability with any sort of grouping of people. I'm going to go ahead and preemptively shut this thread down as it borders closely on the name and shame portion of our forum rules, and will most likely turn ugly.
    I am sorry to hear that this happened to your guild, and while it may be difficult, you can rebuild. Albeit with an important lesson learned regarding the number of, and type of folks being promoted.

  24. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Weakest Class in BDO   

    We read and report on the discussions from many sources (from our own service, and external sources) every day, our team may not always pop in to announce it as such but it is being done. Additionally, I have for quite some time and will continue to do so, played the game on a near daily basis.
    Part of our job is also to wade through the great many voices and opinions being shared (sometimes shouted), to gain the perspective of both the individual user and the community as a whole. One perspective does not always sync up with the other, in fact it is often quite the opposite when looking at the larger picture of overall game balance. 
    Name a server, region, and a time!
