    I personally think it's nice to see more realistic characters now and then in a sea of colorful anime type characters or super model looking characters. Brings a bit of variety and another's aspect on how they like to use the character creator and what they consider beautiful.
     
    For me, I just gotta rock the Drow look on the main character's of both my accounts, and I finally became semi-productive and made a Dark Knight for my second account. Everyone always seems to have such well thought out characters and I'm over here like well... I finally have made nice looking eyes (on the lavender eyed drow) after having a year of practicing in character creator. *cough* Finally.... progress....

     
    Went with the happier younger sister look for my second account while my main account remains the grumpy more serious older sister lol

    Took a break from BDO early in the year, but Dark Knight has brought me back and made me fall in love with the game all over again. So long mana pot dependent Ranger! I love that we can make realistic looking white eyebrows on this class; hardest part of replicating a Drow type look.

    Aww those screenshots look so nice and I was afk hehe. Sorry I couldn't really stay and talk, overnight worker here. Got to get as much sleep as I can. Basically woke up just to patch all the computers, buy the costume, dye it, take screenshots, and then go back to sleep.

    Bought the new costume since it's the closest my Ranger gets to that witch awakening outfit (jelly D:) I don't like the helmet for it at all so these shots won't contain it. This costume doesn't display weapons when out of combat which I think is kind of nice. Dyed it to be very drow like. Still debating on if I like the cape hidden or not. It's not that I don't like the cape, it just looked better before I dyed the costume. Plus being able to see my character's back while playing a Ranger is nice for once lol

  5. Avrielle added a post in a topic Dealing with the housing crisis   

    The patch on August 3rd is the first patch I found with mentions of furniture scores being adjusted. http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/106217-patch-notes-august-3rd
    Still searching for any specifics of pearl items being affected in the patch notes. It is still possible to have a number 1 ranked house, at least in the main cities, but you really have to search for any small house with very few players and purchase every bit of high point in game furniture that you can find. Can't say how well that would work in the smaller towns though. I do agree to what those have said above about somehow adjusting investment bank access based on a point threshold instead of ranking. Ranking could really only be considered 'fair' if they truly removed point stacking with duplicate items. Even if that were so, I still believe a point threshold would be the better way to go considering the population of the game. Looking at Longleaf specifically, technically only two people out of thousands can access that monopoly node using the current ranking system.

    I noticed that some of the other blue grey skin tones had a weird blush for the face I use as well. Kind of reminds me of playing Oblivion and attempting to get a Dunmer with a slightly darker skin tone. They too had some odd greenish or red blush. Also on the topic of attempting the Dark Elf look, having normal looking white eyebrows on this game is just impossible. >.>
    I do agree on the bright loud colors thing though. I also generally prefer having more natural hair colors. Only reason my Vampire look had the red at the tips was for some kind of blood stained effect.
    I do like how you've managed to use that Ranger face and somehow made it to not look extremely young. Personally I find it very difficult to use the young faces and create a character that looks like she's at least in her 20s. (Which is why Witch is the only female class I've never fully customized because it's rather frustrating)
    At first I thought I'd create an entire new face for a Dark Elf look, but I forgot exactly how much work and focus that took and so instead decided to use the base look I'd already created. I'm liking it so far. Was debating between Red or Purple eyes. Purple won out for now until I can figure out a way to make the vibrant red again only without the cat eye pupil. Even if I switch back to the vampire look I will definitely try to copy this look over to the Dark Knight once released.

    She looks lovely! I was also thinking of making a Dark Elf variant for my Ranger, but I'm still very much attached to my Vampire look at the moment. I'm going to need some time (meaning a great many hours haha) in character customization and checking the appearance in game. Even with max graphics the some of the new darker skin tones looked odd, but characters wind up looking so different from the customization screen to in-game. By the looks of your screen shot it does look so much better in game.

  8. Avrielle added a post in a topic Share your Horse!   

    Been horse training and breeding nonstop since February 28th of this year and finally after 240 days of play time I got my first purebred horse. Since she came from an exchange her name was originally just 'Horse', but after I leveled her to 30 and was pleasantly surprised that she wasn't a potato I bought a name change coupon with loyalty and now her name is Glacialis. Took nearly an entire year to get a purebred, feeling pretty good right now.

    I love the snowy weather on this game (not in real life however >.>)




     
    Ok this one had me questioning if I was playing Skyrim for a second because I don't remember a dragon being stuck in place there before.

    Some screen shots with two of my characters from my second account. Also changed my main character slightly to give her a more serious look with paler skin and very red eyes. I am glad that the one day I get off from work ever anymore is the day of maintenance when new outfits get released. -.-

    The Valk awakening outfit is quite pretty. Had fun dyeing it and adjusting the characters eyes and hair around it. Also thought I wasn't going to like the cape, but I wound up liking it a lot once I got the outfit on my character instead of staring at it in the pearl shop. So shiny, so pretty, so.... underboobie lol

  13. Avrielle added a post in a topic [POLL] Which boss armor did you get?   

    Main account got Red Nose Armor, second account got Muskan's Shoes, husband's account got giath's helm.
    Even if my main account were to have gotten one of the better pieces I still would have sold it simply because I'm in the same boat as some others in which I wouldn't be able to afford upgrading it nor have the patience for that. Plus I was able to nab a Ranger and Sorceress Ram Horn Witch Costume off the marketplace today, so I consider it a fair trade for having gotten red nose armor a second time.

  14. Avrielle added a post in a topic Post you'r ingame character here!   

    I've had my Selene from Underworld based Sorceress created since the days before the game came out when all we had was the character creator standalone and I finally figured out the best outfit/costume to compliment the look. Tight black leather is definitely the closest match I can get. Kinda makes me want to play her even though Sorc isn't a class I'm too interested in. Might make a tiny exception next week once I finally get off work.

  16. Avrielle added a post in a topic Awakening Quest was so fun =D   

    Title winner on Ranger here, was actually very easy to get playing on Orwen Vel 01. Cave, golems, and Marni's second lab were mostly empty except one or two other Rangers while there. Might be because of the extremely goofed maintenance that happened on our release week. Plus most people who were very serious about getting the title logged out at Trent and I brought their fastest horses.

  17. Avrielle added a post in a topic Desert Shovel Exploit   

    I've also noticed that players in game have begun to "take matter into their own hands" and hunt down people at the top of the wealth list. My husband, who is at the top of the processing leader board with master 10, ranks on the fishing board with master something, and is usually ranked 1-3 on the wealth board has suddenly been getting pk'd every night and day when he goes out to afk fish in the ocean. It's been a few months since that's happened to him and the moment this shovel exploit became public knowledge, he's getting pk'd every time he afk fishes outside of Calpheon. (Which he personally doesn't care since river fishing in Calph gives him more relic shards)
     
    Even with his wealth (which isn't that much compared to the people who hide it by keeping it in gold bars) he doesn't use it for gear because he doesn't care about combat on this game at all. All he cares about is the shiny ranking above his head. Would be nice if the community didn't go into a massive witch hunt the moment some exploit has been revealed. I've seen people accusing horse trainers of using this exploit..... lol I'm sorry, but I don't think we have time for that. In fact a lot of us don't have time to play the bloody game because we are auto looping 24/7. Desync and disconnects aren't helping with our horse leveling either.

  18. Avrielle added a post in a topic Premium horse appearance change ( learning skill )   

    Well alright then, guess it doesn't work that way. I only attempted to use it once on my T8 and it just gave me exp, I guess that person just got lucky and actually got a skill then. Just more RNG BS that isn't explained well in order to get people to spend more in the cash shop.

  19. Avrielle added a post in a topic Premium horse appearance change ( learning skill )   

    I learned from talking with another horse trainer today that if you plan to use the premium appearance change in order to learn a skill the horse must be level 30 AND that exp bar must be maxed.

  20. Avrielle added a post in a topic Horse Racing - 30 second countdown is too low   

    Now that I know this, I do feel kinda bad. I have a T6, T8, and T7 (once I buy a skill change coupon or two) that have sprint, IA, and drift. At least with those races people are more likely to have a faster horse that's capable of finishing, but my T1 on the other hand has sprint and I've noticed that unless the other racers have sprint or at least the IA drift combo, they really stand no chance of completing on time unless they know really good shortcuts.
     
    I understand why they put in that ending time limit simply to keep races flowing and to prevent a race from lasting forever, but I think an increase to 60 seconds or 90 seconds is more than reasonable. Plus some Asian cultures tend to not believe in "participation trophies" and this is a good compromise between giving people a chance to earn the 1 seal reward, but not rewarding everyone who participates. I could see people who don't care about winning or trying in the races just enter the race and autopathing to the end just so they could get the 1 seal reward, thus keeping people who want to compete and have fun from entering the race if the 20 racer limit is hit.

  21. Avrielle added a post in a topic Horse race Instant Acceleration + Drift   

    The worst thing after goofing up on the IA and Drift combo and then stopping is when the horse decides it needs to do a fore chop since someone on the dev team decided it would be a good idea to have IA and fore chop on the same key lol

  22. Avrielle added a post in a topic Spooky/Halloween screenshots anyone?   

     
    I just wish Ranger had access to one of the face tattoos that Kunoichi has because it can be made to look like fangs, but sadly Ranger doesn't have any face tattoo options that can be made to look like fangs. Either way it was really fun making my character look like a vamp.
     
    I love the screen shots everyone is creating with this event. Many people really know how to capture the mood so well!

  23. Avrielle added a post in a topic Spooky/Halloween screenshots anyone?   

    Since no one seems very willing to sell Halloween outfits on the marketplace and I'm not exactly sure if I want to spend the money on the Ranger Ram Horn costume I decided to just dye whatever armor I had to make my character look like a vampire.
    Waiting on the sun to set....

    Sweet, got the title. Slightly surprised since I'm not completely hardcore into combat and Rangers are a very popular class, but then again I made sure to log off at Longleaf and bring my T8 horse lol. Congratz to all the other Rangers who made it as well.
