  1. @Geminel For the quality of this game and the MASSIVE amount of feature in this game, it is reasonable there will be hiccups, especially when they release/patch new content. It is a 7 day free trial, would it make you feel better they make it 5 day free trial and add a remark *you better signup after our maintenance date*?

    What I mean, it is all in perspective, the Dev letting people give this game a try before you dive into buying the game. You don't see every games giving you a free trial before purchase.

  3. I think there is a problem if the announcement ingame, right before the maintenance states that the maintenance lasts 5 hours and the forum post states it last 7 hours.

    It isnt that hard to choose a time you should communicate to the community....

    how old are you? They don't just draw a lottery to determine how long the game will be down. Information changes all the time. 

    Like sh*t, did the 2hr difference ruined your plan to have a life? /s


  4. Why not match the Golden Egg and Flondor Goose Egg together? I am so bitter (sad really) because I was not aware it ended on the 19th. I was 2 eggs away from my chandelier.......


  5. more details would help:

    1) What have you done / tried to fix the issue

    2) screenshots

    3) re-log? different server? different character?

    4) ultimately, perhaps start a Ticket.

    5) Optional: Why even bother with VPN?


  6. Oh my goodness x_x I had no idea the respawn took THAT long.

    you're killing our ecosystem!


  7. 1. Well, since the game advocates making alts with the whole family system, I feel it would be more immersive to have an actual family with each person enjoying/specializing in their own life skill(s). I wouldnt be constantly switching characters, since most things is connected/shared through the family. The stuff I make through alchemy, the trade profits, the node connections, workers, everthing. 

    2. I have been reading A LOT of stuff and watching a ton of videos, so I understand that completely lol. 

    3. I don't even know how to do what you just said and didnt even know it was possible. I just knew that they sold on the marketplace for like 700k silver! Could I do this summoning scroll method at my level or do I need to collect the shards until I'm higher? 

    4. I joined a small guild called Noob_Nation basically just to ask questions and be around other new players maybe doing some of the same things im doing. 

    5. I definitely dont have the money for that so I will deal with my 25 fps :) 

    1. Definitely, alts are amazing as they get 1 energy every hour you're online so within a few days (depending on your max energy) they will be full of energy. Since I am on my main 99% and energy recovers faster (every 3min vs every hour) I just use my main for everything except looking for workers.

     

    3. In the description, it says to collect 5 and place it in a pattern; I believe it is a “X” pattern and then a “+” sign will appear for you to convert that into a scroll. I believe the expiry is 1 week so you can time it. You always want to do it in a group of 5. The standard practice is doing ancient scroll run of 5x or 10x. Meaning, every member will have 5x or 10x scrolls and go to the designated spot to summon the scroll. Every now and then you see in Server chat of people looking for group members and then you all will decide on which server to go on. The scroll consist of 3 waves, with the last one being the Boss. Killing the Boss gives you a chance to collect Memory Fragment that sells for around 700-750k (depending on the market) which yes, you can sell, or keep it as it comes in hand. Using your own scroll will trigger an event with Black Spirit which essentially asks you to kill the Boss. Once you kill the boss you summon BS and it’ll reward you with 3 red orbs (don’t open it until you’re done because of weight management) but these orbs gives you junk and sometimes memory fragment as well. So when it is your turn to do the summoning -> use scroll, kill boss, collect reward -> use scroll again.

     

    4. It is good to be in a guild with experience people as they can give you recommendation here and there that will help you grow and make better decisions. There are a lot of guild open to new players. Essentially if you can google the answer do so, but if not, ask your guildies (not good to treat them as wikepedia). Look around in the guild recruitment forum section.

     


  8. Just prior to the maintenance earlier I think I hit 60 hours play time over the past week and I gotta say im absolutely loving the game. 

    In my opinion, it is not like any game ive ever played. I played Archeage for a long time, heard a lot of people compare it and while it may have some aspects that are similar, BDO is far superior. Here's my list of pros and cons!

    Pros:

    1. Vast world with TONS to do! Over 60 hours i've only managed to uncover maybe 10% of the map. 
    2. Awesome combat that is fluid and is kinda reminiscent of Dynasty Warriors/Kingdoms of Amalur/DMC to me. 
    3. Lovely and inspiring art style. It makes me want to just get on my horse and travel to see what other places look like. 
    4. It's not just a grind to end-game with low-mid level content being obsolete. Over 60 hours I've only reached level 41 because I got so consumed by node connection, hiring workers, developing a sense of direction for what I want to accomplish ETC. (and reading A LOT of guides xD)

    Cons:

    1. I feel like the quest cinematics and dialogue is very lackluster.. idk if it's just me but Ive already begun skipping scenes just because they are not interesting to watch.
    2. I have I guess what most people call a Low-End PC. I have an i5, pretty old computer with 8gb of ram and AMD Chipset Family 7500 series. I have to play on low texture and optimization mode graphics just to get 25-28 fps. This saddens me because I know im missing out on a lot.. some places I get to I turn my graphics up just to look around but I cant move because I get 5-8 fps. 
    3. Overwhelming for a new player. There are so many things to do I hardly can ever decide on one thing. This leads me to doing many things for short periods of time and I know that's not getting me anywhere. 
    4. conversation minigame -.- I read about this for hours and still cant figure out how to do it right. I think it was overthought to the point of making it almost rocket science for someone who doesnt understand the concept. (me) 

    Overall the pros far outweigh the cons for me, and that's a good thing. Now, before I ultimately get to my questions, I will give a summary of where my family is in terms of wealth and manpower. 

    I currently have 3 characters, a 41 Musah, a 15 Tamer and a 15 Wizard. My intention was to use the tamer for farming/alchemy, the wizard exclusively for Trading, and my main character is fishing/cooking/processing. The 2 alts I haven't done anything on yet.

    My Musah is almost an apprentice cook and processor, and im apprentice 2 fishing. I have in total around 25-35 million in silver/gold ingots/items. I have all of Veila bought out and upgraded, with a refinery, a shipyard, and a tool workshop. I have a residence with a few items for aesthetics and my cooking station. 

    I have in total 8 workers: 2 on potatoes, 1 on each of coal, copper and iron. 1 on Arrow Mushrooms (just a random node near Veilia) 1 on standby as a worker in my workshop, and I cant quite remember where the 8th one is atm lol. I largely made my decision based on a guide about crafting fishing poles, but after a fellow player told me about epheria rods, I scrapped that idea and bought 2 of those. The potatoes are for cooking beer, and I am just processing the copper/iron while saving the mushrooms for whatever I may need it for in the future. I have some storage in Heidal and thats about it, however I have haidel and Veilia connected because since there isn't enough lodging in Veilia, I have 2-3 workers in Heidel. 

    I'm at 64 energy and 60 contribution points (I only have 1 contribution point to spend currently) I only have the gear i've gotten from questing and haven't even attempted to buy or upgrade any gear. 

     

    So NOW, my question is simply am I doing ok for a new player? There's so much to do I kinda doubt myself due to lack of knowledge... kinda like "bro you never played this there's no way you're doing it right" but It's not a game with a right and wrong way to do things xD 

    My goal is to have each member of my family be proficient in a certain task or 2. I want my main to be a fisherman, my old man wizard to trade stuff with a trade wagon, my cute little japanese tamer to farm and make potions. (Other alts for the other skills when I have the brainpower to make them.) I would also like to have steady income and get all there is to get from node connection and employing workers because thats a very cool feature to me. The majority of my income comes from selling those ancient relic shard(?) things that I get from fishing and the black spirit adventure/achievement/quest rewards.. OH I also sell all my black crystal(armor) and (weapon) on the marketplace... probably a bad idea. 

     

    With those things in mind, what would be some your advice for a player new to BDO? :) I know there are tons of these topics/sites/guides/videos out there but I would like a more personalized response to my situation. 

     

    ANYWAY! Thanks for reading my wall of text sorry for the headache :P 

    1) Why do you want to split the life skills between characters? Typically people have main characters, so you are fine with constantly switching characters? The higher skill you are, the better rewards for that specific skill.

    I know there are people who lvl up the life skill for all their alts … I just can’t see myself doing that. I want one of my characters to be the best in gathering, processing, cooking, etc.

    2) This game provides no hand holding. It boils down to you reading, interacting and watching YouTube videos to learn about the game. I have been playing for almost a month and I still have a lot of questions.

    3) Selling ancient shards its great. But also you can use it, create the scrolls, and go in a group and summon them. The rewards tends to be pretty good, especially if you used your own shards as your profit will be higher. It can get boring and you get no XP from it….but money.

    4) Join a guild if you haven’t. Find one that fits you and you’ll have a much better time.

    5) Nothing can be done about your graphics; this game is very CPU-intensive. Just gotta deal with it unless you have the dough for a kickass CPU.


  9. Hi Alicia,
    Here is the link about the event you mentioned: 
    You can find all event details under the "Event" section on our forum. I hope that is what you were asking for.

    *Keep in mind that event links are not always attached to the Patch Notes, therefore we suggest to check event pages every now and then to be sure you won't miss it.

    Have fun and embrace the darkness!

    Error 404: Not Found

    I've been looking under the :Event" section for a week since the release of the Flondor Goose Egg Event but nothing.


  10. Reasons:

    • Dark Knight Awakening
    • Golden Flondor Goose Egg Event

     

    7 hours for this? :D kidding me right?

    Please apply to BDO if you can do it in less than 7hrs.

    GOD DAMNIT KAKAO GAMES..not again i got the same problem and now even repair is broken i hate this...it will again take -----ing ages to get the game on a 0.4mbit/s downoad speed thanks.

    That's one amazing potato you got there.

  11. Go for RX470. As for CPU, not great but it'll do. Just means you won't be playing on any high settings unless you want to blow up your CPU.


  12. First few hrs into the game, I immediately filter out all chats except whisper and Guild. All you need is find a good guild and chat with them. Forget the rest.

    tl;dr yes, they are toxic. The same kind of people who will leave you stranded in the middle of the ocean and PK you just because they feel like it.

  13. Hi,

    Newbie here, will there be no thread for the Easter Event under the Event Sub-Forum, @CM_Aethon?

    Is it too small of an event that it doesn't deserve a thread?  I Saw one for the Sakura Event, just curious why there isn't one for Easter Event.

    Guess this Event is so pitiful that does not deserve its own thread :S

    Capture or buy T5 horses from the market.  Shoot for 1 male and 2-3 females.

    Merchant wagon train them up to lvl 30x27 or 30x30.

    Breed them, reset the male's breed so you can breed 4 times with him.

    Your result will vary based on RNG, but my experience says you'll get mostly T6's and T7's.

    Level up those T6's and T7's, if you have a male & female T7, level them to 30.  Otherwise for T6xT7's you can go with lvl 29x28, or lvl 30x27.

    Your results will vary based on RNG, but by this breed you will have a small chance at getting T8's (many seem to be having beginner's luck so who knows you may have more than a small chance), medium chance at getting T7's, and decent chance at getting some T6's if you are unlucky.

    No T8's?  Rinse & repeat, stick with as much T7xT7 or T7xT6 breeding as you can get out of your horses.  if you run out, go back to step #1.

    Good luck.

    ahh thank; that's what I was wondering in the mechanic of getting a T8, if it had the "rinse&repeat" factor.

    Thanks again; if you'll excuse me, I'll go pray to the RNG gods.

  16. Hi Mistygun,

    I am around your same profession, I rarely do quest. I do the ones that intrigues me, are along the items I would craft, and the one from the black spirit.

    I mainly craft items on my own to level them up really.


  17. So I am aiming to build an Epheria Sailboat and debating the following as a Skilled5:

    Do I start gathering logs or level up my Gathering by mining rough stone before hitting trees.

    Pros on rough stone path:

    • - They are cluster within the same rocks for the most part is easier/faster to level up
    • -Rough Stones comes in hand for multiple purposes

     

    I feel as Skilled5 chopping wood and proc'ing 1 log will drive me crazy and costly on the tools.

    Bonus question: How do you manage to hold so many logs/rocks without going back and forth?

    • Is Storage Maid really the best option?
    • Is spending 1mil to buy merchant wagon really worth it? (I'm poor...okay.)
    • Is it better to buy those weight capacity increase? (looks PRICEY)
