    This discussion is not longer constructive, and due to the mounting aggression in replies, I will be closing this thread.

  3. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic How P2W / OP / WTF / [fav acronym] are Artisans Memories   

    Hey guys, there are a lot of viewpoints and differing opinions expressed in this thread. I will make sure that all of them are conveyed to the rest of the team, but this thread has run its course, and it is time for me to put it to rest.

  4. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic CM Valentine's Day Poll - Who is the fairest of them all?   

    Hi, I'm Serenity. I enjoy consuming large quantities of salt... Uh, I mean... Uhm... kittens! I like kittens! 
    I play a witch right now, and I have something like 185/189/225 for stats because... I tried to TET things. (Didn't TRI hard enough evidently.  )
    (P.S. Yes, that just happened. It can't unhappen.)
    My favorite costume is the Snowflake costume with the cape and ruffles dyed black. I think it looks spiffy. 
    Favorite location in BDO? Uh, that's a really hard one. I don't have a good screenshot, but if you're on the road, passing through Treant forest toward Trent at daybreak, there is a section of forest that looks eerily yellow and slightly misty. However, if you turn your head to the left, the yellow turns a calming and mystical shade of blue.

  5. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic PSA: broken OP Warrior Bug   

    I understand that there are opposing view points on this topic. I will make sure they are expressed to the rest of the team, however, the discussion is starting to drift off topic and become more focused on personal attacks, or attempts to discredit other users. Should this behavior continue, I will return to lock this thread.

    There are quite a few views presented in the pages of this thread, and I will make sure all points of view are expressed to the rest of the team. At this point, however, it appears the thread has run its course, and I will be closing it now.

  8. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic How to get bed for more energy recovery   

    I am a recent addition to the Community Team.  
    If you have difficulty getting the materials, check the Marketplace for either the materials or the beds themselves. Some players really enjoy gathering and processing and post those items regularly.

  10. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic How to get bed for more energy recovery   

    Hey there! I know you were able to get a bed from your original game purchase, but another method of getting beds in game is using a Tier 4 Furniture workshop to craft them.

  11. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic Please allow gifting pearl items for Silver via COD   

    While I understand that players are wary of being scammed out of items, and interested in ways to obtain a wider selection of items from the Cash Shop, the Gifting system is not intended to facilitate trade. Any player who uses the gifting system in this manner does so at his or her own risk. Please see the following Announcement for more information regarding our official stance on gifting scams. 

    Additionally, if you would like to see this system altered, or have any ideas on mechanics you would like to see changed, I would highly advise you to start a discussion in the Reports and Suggestions section of our forums.

  12. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic Suggestion: Add Grab Counter and CC Escape Skills   

    So, for the sake of discussion, I have a few questions for you:
    Given current TTK (time to kill) in PvP, do you really see any form of counter being effective?
    What role do you see counters having in large scale PvP, like sieges? 
    Is a complicated system of skill combinations in order to counter CC or Grab not only going to make the problem worse, but frustrate players?
    Do you think adding a counter system is more important than addressing DP and AP scaling to increase TTK and prolong PvP engagement, which will then mitigate players' concerns that First CC = Kill?
    I will make sure this suggestion is passed on to the rest of the team, and I do thank the OP for starting this discussion and sharing their views.

  13. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic House funds Deposit into Storage   

    Thank you for bringing this mechanic to our attention. We understand that there are mechanics in this game that are difficult for some players to understand and I will make sure I pass your feedback along to the rest of the team.

  14. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic Question about fishing   

    I prefer using a Balenos Fishing rod that is enchanted, for my afk fishing. It decreases the auto fishing time, and as you enchant it, not only do you get a better percentage on Auto Fishing decrease, you also get more durability on the rod itself. Since you can repair it just like a weapon or armor, the initial investment, while steep, is worth the cost. 
    Also, as you fish, you will gain a small percentage of fishing EXP, which will level the skill. You can see your progression and current skill level on the Character Sheet (Default P) Also, you should look into fishing hot spots that give blue and gold fish (the most popular being by velia) These give large quantities of blue and gold fish, which will improve your cash flow from fishing. If you are working to enchant items like a Liverto, you can also make use of the Ancient Relic Shards you can get from fishing, or sell them on the marketplace for silver.

  15. CM_Serenity added a post in a topic New Quest line blocked by p2w aspect   

    Another little tip is using the Party Elixirs of Intrepid Swiftness (Movement Speed +3), with the Agile Seal. Since Elixirs share cooldowns, you can't stack normal elixirs because the cooldowns are almost the same length as the duration, however Party Elixirs have a 1 minute cooldown with a 15 minute duration. You could also throw in Balenos Meal/Special (Movement/Gathering/Fishing Speed +2). 
    All in all, you guys have compiled a great list of options for players having difficulty with the underwater quests, gathering and general exploration.
