    Herbal and Grain Juice Comparion

     Black Desert Online Guide:
    Herbal and Grain Juices Comparison
    Maximizing Your Return on Health and Mana
    By: Miekka
    In this guide I will teach you how to make herbal and grain juices for Black Desert Online. Their light weight makes them more a effective alternative than HP Potions and Mana Potions. Some classes are not able to use the Mana Pots and having Herbal Juices is a must. I will also compare the ratio of weight to return.
    Herbal Juices
    Since mana potions only work for Witch, Wizards, Soceress, Ranger, Tamer, Herbal Juice is a must for other classes if you want to restore your MP/WP/SP. Below I compare the ratio of weight to restore, of the herbal juices and then the mana pots.

    Comparing the above MP Potions to Herbal juices, you can see that the Herbal Juices are the most effective choice. Though many still use the MP Potion for the convenience of buying them from the vendors.
    Recipes and Crafting: Herbal Juice
    The base recipe calls for three Wild Herb items or 10 Weeds. Wild Herbs includes Sunrise Herbs, Dry Mane Grass, Silk Honey Grass, Fire Flake Flowers, and Silver Azaleas. These can be obtained from gathering, nodes or farming. The mineral water and salt are bought from vendors that sell cooking supplies.
    After you have your mineral water and wild herb/weeds item hit “L” and select Simple Alchemy.

    Herbal Juice/Concentrated Herbal Juice
    Base Recipe: [Herb Item (3) or Weeds (10)] + Mineral Water (1) = Makes Herbal Juice or occasionally Concentrated Herbal Juice
    Convert:         Herbal Juice (3) = Concentrated Herbal Juice (1)
    Mass produce by:     Herbal Juice (30) + Salt (1) = Concentrated Herbal Juice (10)
    Highly Concentrated Herbal Juice
    Convert:                Concentrated Herbal Juice (3) =  Highly Concentrated Herbal Juice (1)
    Mass produce by:     Concentrated Herbal Juice (30) + Salt (1) = Highly Concentrated Herbal Juice (10)
    Refined Herbal Juice
    Convert:         Highly Concentrated Herbal Juice (3) =  Refined Herbal Juice (1)
    Mass produce by:     Highly Concentrated Herbal Juice (30) + Salt (1) = Refined Herbal Juice (10)
    *** Mass production is more effective for time. Also higher quality ingredients give higher returns.
    Grain Juices
    Grain Juices are used to restore HP. They are similar to the herbal juices. They are more effective than the regular mana pots and health pots because they weigh less, thus you can carry more. They are made using Simple Cooking under the processing menu, accessed by pressing "L'. The grain juices have a 5 second cool down.
    Recipes and Crafting: Grain Juice
    The base recipe calls for three grain items. Grain items are: Corn, Wheat,  Barley, Potato, or Sweet Potato. These can be obtained from gathering, nodes or farming. The mineral water and sugar are bought from vendors that sell cooking supplies.
    After you have your mineral water and grain item hit “L” and select simple cooking.

    Base Recipe: Grain Item (3) + Mineral Water (1) = Makes Grain Juice or occasionally Concentrated Grain Juice

    Comparing the juices to the potion, the best to get is of course is the juices. If you ever find yourself being out-potted in a pvp skirmish, maybe they are using something that will give them more return for the weight that one can carry.
     
    I would recommend carrying, the lowest level you can for spamming while grinding, thus maximizing the return on HP. But if you are going to be PvPing and want the largest gain of health or mp/wp/sp use the larger potions. Another way to set things up, is to keep some of the larger ones on you but spam the small ones while grinding, that way you can still have that extra boost if you get into a pvp skirmish while grinding.
    It is up to you to determine whether the time investment is worth the return.
    Update - No more energy cost!
    As of June 1st, 2016:
     
    This is great news. I would recommend taking some time each week and stockpile all the juices that you need. Since the energy cost has been removed this makes mass production so much easier. Also, I recommend always using the higher quality ingredients since they yield more each time.

    Easter Egg Hunt - Cant turn in quests within time frame
    I'm trying to turn my eggs in to the appropriate NPCs but they no longer have the quest available. It is still before maintenance and 10:00 UTC. I have tried the NPCs in Velia and Heidel.

  7. Miekka added a post in a topic Damn, block chat for guest passes users   

    I dislike the idea to forbid chat to guest passes. I have used all three of my guest passes, inviting friends from another MMO. They are a great way to get my friends to try the game and buy it. 
    The best way to prevent AIDs... I mean gold spammers, is abstinence! Stop buying their services in the first place. If they can't fund their business here, they will eventually die down or switch games. But alas, humanity is full of stupid lazy people that would pay money for a game, and then pay someone else to play it for them. Or even buy something from people that are known to steal credit card info.
    Keep up the good work Daum, I really love that this game has imposed trading limitations, it shows that you are serious about the gold sellers.
