  1. BLACK DESERT FOR DUMMIES
    NEWCOMERS` GUIDE VADEMECUM

    If you are a new player in Black Desert here you will find all important and useful information to get a fun and good start in this game, my intention is put together all of this information in one post and then dont need search in reddit, forums... across one thousand post talking about this things one by one one hundred times each one and some times with wrong information.
    Wellcome to Black Desert and player's community
     
    (Your best friend in Black Desert to find/search any quest, object or whatever: http://bddatabase.net)
     
    If you are a new player in Black Desert and you wanna rush to max level fast or you want to enjoy with the game slowly you need to know somethings: 
    1.BASIC INFORMATION
    -KNOWLEDGE: you get knowledge exp. talking with npcs in cities that show a "?" in the map, spending energy in NPCs to get knowledge, completing quest that give you knowledge reward, discovering for first time places, crafting recipes and materials and killing enough mobbs of one kind to can see the damage in the hp bar over them to get A-B-C rank knowledge about this mobbs (depends of the rank you deal more damage to this kind of mobbs). With Knowledge you get exp. in your energy xp. bar the total points of energy grow up and learn or enjoy about the game lore:
      
    -ENERGY POINTS / EP: you can use energy points to spend in life skills: fish, cooking, gathering... to get an offer from special black market NPC (50energy cost), to upgrade a node, get knowledge from NPCs, get amity with NPCs, hire workers and many things. Your character recovery base is +1 energy every 3mins. online / +1 per hour offline,  1 more if you are resting in a bed in your home and you can get more recovery per time from special consumable buffs, also you can recover +3 instanly from bars in towns if you buy a wine glass 50k silver and doing quest with energy recover reward.
    -CONTRIBUTION POINTS / CP: contribution points are used to exchange for equipment / tools  from NPCs (rent option), activate nodes to send worker there to gather materials, buy residences, warehouses and different kinds of buildings in cities. Dont worry about spend CP because you can get all back in any moment giving back the objects to NPCs, selling instanly any building or recovering from nodes deactivaiting it.

    -SKILL POINTS / SP: you get skill point killing mobbs or in quests rewards, you use this SP to unlock new skills or improve the skills that you already have, dont worry about your first skill builds because you can reset all skills up to level 55 (right click in the skill) and you can reset it after 55 with one object to test and make a perfect skill build for your play style when you know more about the game.  
    -NPC search tool: in the right upper side of your screen you can click in "NPC" icon and search any npc you will see a path that you can auto follow to find it.

    -You share your warehouse across al characters.
    -You can share the armor and accesories with all characters in any level (weapons and outfits are exclusive stuff).
    -You share the same mounts, wagons and ships with al characters.
    -You keep node levels, workers and workers jobs queue between al characters.
    -You share the same CP and EP with al characters (SP are exclusive for each character).
    -Life skills levels are exclusive for each character.
    -The fail regrade stack is exclusive to each character.
    -All stats are exlusive to each character included strenght, breath and health.
    -You share all buildings between all characters.
     
    2. QUESTS: RUSH THE LEVEL OF YOUR CHARACTER AND ENJOY THE GAME
    Just doing main quest line (Black spirit quests) you can reach fast and easy to lvl 50-55 you can go back to finish this quests later if you want to get some interesting rewards that you dont need now or you can evolve your character doing all quest arround or at least good ones. Mainly check the reward from quest or you will lose lot of time for nothing because in Black Desert most of the quests doesnt give you exp. to level up or something interesting:
    -Level exp. quests: good. 
    -Contribution points/CP exp quests: bad, you get enough CP exp. from main line quests to start and you can do this quests along all game plus at the end are daily quests that you can complete faster, try to do only 200-500 CP exp. quests.
    - Skill point/SP quets: good, you need lot of skill points to get skills in your character and upgrade it, you can get grinding mobbs as well.Link with a list of all SP quests : http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/20960-guide-a-list-of-all-town-based-quests-that-grant-a-full-skill-point/
    -Life skill exp: bad, gives you xp to one of your proffesions (gathering,cooking,alchemy...) normaly need sometime to do it and you can complete all of this quest at end game in some hours when you choose your 1st proffesions to level up.
    -Gold quest: good, depends of the amount of gold but normaly is a chain of quests and you get more gold in the next quests and only worth if you need kill mobbs because you get xp and more gold from the drops also this quests are in most of cases daily quests. 
    -Energy recovery quests: bad, only give you some energy points normaly 5-10 only if you need to do something important at end game and your are empty of points.
    -Knowledge quests: good if they are related about new locations to discover, NPC characters/mobbs to know because is fast but others about matterials and life skills for example are slow to complete.
    -Materials / tools and consumables quests: bad, you can get easier and faster big amount of tools, consumables and materials in the game by other ways (buy from merchants, craft or gathering by yourself).
     etc
    -Special materials / objects quest: good, special and expensive material rewards as blackstones, special fruits, black crystal shards.

    (the most of the quest has mix rewards with this information is your choice which ones to complete and not)
     
    3.WORKERS / CRAFT / GATHERING AND NODES
    I advice start only with 1-2 blue workers gathering potatoes all time from nodes close to first city (Velia) craft and save a big amount of beer in your warehouse to dont care about in a future when you need focus and spend time in more important things, level up easy your cooking skill and enjoyning the game at start without complicating you much learning this part too early because you dont need this up to a log time playing / end-game or you can simply grind mobbs, skip this and buy all from marketplace. 
    -WORKERS:
    You can hire and fire workers in the "Work supervisor" NPC in the cities, you need to spend some energy but i advice you dont buy any white/green worker and wait to getat least a blue grade worker offer, doesnt matter get humans, goblins or giants at start they are good in diferent jobs and you will use all kinds later, for example humans are good to craft expensive things or get special matts from nodes, goblins work fast are good to farm things fast, normal crafting, craft crates and giants are good to farm basic things as potatoes or send them to care your farms. To recover worker´s stamina you need give them some kind of  special consumables, the main one: beer, you can buy it from marketplace or craft it easy by yourself without any life skill request in a cooking bech inside your house, you send your workers to work in nodes then they send the materials to your warehouse, workers can care your farms but they dont collect the plants and you can use them to craft in your buildings at cities.
    To hire workers you need build "lodgings" buildings at cities nearest to nodes that you want to gather, you can recover workers stamina from anywhere if you have beer in your inventory just opening the worker list, clicking in the beer icon for worker and clicking again in the beer icon in the new window that appears, 1 beer = 1 stamina point.
    Beer: 5x potatoes (farm with your character in farms arround Velia or gather with workers in this farms nodes) - 6x mineral water - 1x raw sugar - 2x leavening agent (buy it from Inn/tabern in cities at chef or Inn keeper NPC).
    -CRAFTING / PROCESING: 
    You can craft by two ways, basic craft (L) key, doesnt spend energy if fails doesnt spend materials used, or crafting stations (you can buy in NPCs) that you need to place in your house,  spend energy per craft and if fails spend materials used, you can produce diferent things depending in which way you are choosing and you need level up your professions crafting things of your actual level to produce new harder ones. To craft special materials, tools, weapons, armors, wagons, ships, grade/blackstones and other things:
    1.You need to buy the proper building in cities to craft the object of your choice. 
    2.Use your workers to collect the materials in nodes plus some materials that you only can farm by yourself or procesing basic materials (L).
    3.Click in the building and "manage crafting" option, select the object to craft and in the right side the amount to craft that you want, woorkers will use the requested materials stored in your warehouse of this city to craft the object. 
    Best alchemy & cooking guide also where and how to farm materials:
    Alchemy: http://dulfy.net/2016/05/08/black-desert-alchemy-life-skill-guide/
    Cooking: http://dulfy.net/2016/06/06/black-desert-cooking-life-skill-guide/
    -NODES:
    In Black Desert you can find a lot of nodes arround the map somes are easy to find and others you need to search them to find the materials that you want / need or to conect  other nodes. I post here a interactive map with all nodes is your choice use it or try to find them by yourself  : http://www.blackdesertfoundry.com/map/#7/-5.616/-55.432
    1.You spend contribution points to activate nodes to be able to send workers to work and get materials, your workers send the collected materials to your warehouse of the nearest city.
     2.You can spend energy to upgrade your node (lvl 1-10) and get more materials and more chance to get rare materials listed below main material (1st one).
    3.You can select how many times you want to gather from node with the choosen worker in the right side of node screen, one stamina point spent per gathering order, and you can see the time to complete one gathering order to get the materials in your warehouse.
    4.You can manage your workers jobs in nodes from anywhere of the map but you need to go to "Node Manager" NPC to activate the nodes if you dont have "Value Pack" activated if you have it you need spend 10 energy points to activate nodes from anywhere without "Node Manager" NPC.
    5.To can gather from nodes you need conect this nodes with the nearest city with a warehouse activating all nodes between both, thas`s why you can see nodes without any resource to gather only are conexion nodes.
    ////////////////////////////////Spend energy to improve the nodes doesnt give you more drop chance in objects, gold or more exp. when you grind mobbs (tested by my self and check the test results of people in google if you want).////////////////////////////////
     
    6.BUILDINGS
    To construct a building you need click in the city icon in the map and click again in the houses icons in white color then check which kind of building can you construct, the contribution points that you need and the max level that you can upgrade this buildings, to upgrade it you dont spend more CP only silver but is a ridiculous amount to buy/upgrade buildings and you can demolish and get back your CP in any moment then dont care about test this part of the game. The best thing is maximize your CP buying buildings, this means: you can buy a warehouse with 2 points that can reach lvl2 but maybe in this city you can find other house with a warehouse that can reach lvl2 as well but only need 1 CP to buy it also to get the bests buildings or somes like a stable, shipyard, crafting buildings or a warehouse lvl5 you need buy other buildings before to conect them just click in a building that you want and then in the new window click "check purchase conditions" you will see marked with arrows the buildings that you need to be able to purchase this one.
    Residence - personal house to place workbenchs, bed, decoration mainly and other things.
    Stables - is good get at least 1 lvl 3-5 to can have 1-2 horses and some wagons arround all map ( you share all spaces in all regions of the map).
    Lodging-  let you hire more workers in one region of the map.
    Warehouses -  gives you more spaces in your storage in the city where you have the building.
    Crafting buildings - let you craft weapons, armors, metal ingots, ship parts, wagon parts...
     
    5.MOUNTS
    Breeding is a hard RNG and a waste of time at start just buy your horses at start up to lvl 57-58.
    Mount skills:

     
    6.UPGRADE AND REPAIR GEAR
    You can play the RNG of the game or if you save the money and buy the gear in the market place, depends on you, some people tell its better buy the gear others tell not, is your choice do it, personaly i like a lot RNG, test my luck and the adrenaline of the moment  all this options are calling the "Black Spirit" and talking with him:
    To enhance (+1 +2 +3 etc) your gear you need "blackstone" (armor or weapon) items, you have 100% chance up to +5 arround between +8 +10 can fail a bit more  at +12 +14 sometimes you can get 8-12 fails and to get +15 you can fail 10-14 times all in green grade 1 gear, if you reform the item to grade 2 blue or grade 3 yellow the chances are lower and depends of the item the chances change as well, bosses weapons has less base chances and in more grade (green-blue-yellow) has less chance as well.
    When you fail you decreasse the max durability of the item 5pts and you cant regrade more if the max durability decreasse to 20pts then you need repair the item in any armorsmith NPC at cities, to repair a item max durability choose repair option in the armorsmith NPC and the in the lower part of the screen choose repair max. durability, select the item to repair and the material must be the same item in the same grade (green, blue, yellow) or lower and you recover 10pts max durability. Some end-game items are not worth to repair with  other items cause they are expensive then you can buy an object from market-place "memory fragment" for arround 750k silvers to repair it but you recover only 1-2pts of the max durability then the best way is stack fails with your alters with cheap items droped from mobbs in blue-yellow grade to get more fails up to stack 14 or 25 fails because the fails give you more chances to regrade per fail in the next try to then try in the expensive items that you want to upgrade to +12 +13 +14 or +15 and dont decreasse the max durability because is expensive repair it, also you can force the enhancement using a lot of blackstones and decressing a big amount of the max. durability of the item (depends of the item and the grade +5 +6 +7 8+...) to get a 100% succes rate (you can check the amount of blackstones you need and durability lost before force the enhance).
    When you reach +15 you need special stones to regrade it to PRI (+16) DUO (+17) TRI (+18) TETRA (+19) PENTA(+20) you lose more durability per try in this levels.
    To reform an item (green,blue,yellow) you need "grade reform stones" that you can craft in refinery buildings or buy in market-place really cheap depending of the stone grade1 green, grade 2 blue or grade 3 yellow, you have more chances to upgrade the item to the next grade when you are using a best stone but you can craft or buy a special stone "ultimate weapon / armor reform stone" that give you 100% chance to get yellow grade 3 ultimate item from green grade 1 or blue grade 2 items. 
    Bes way to me upgrade to +15 - PRI -DUO -TRI - TETRA and then use ultimate stone to get ultimate grade 3 100% because as well upgrade is easier in less reform grade of the item.
    7.TRANSPORT SYSTEM
    Know to transport your items between cities its important in BDO, you only need acess to the city where you have the items that you want to transport clicking the icon of the city in the map screen you will see the warehouse window and one option "transport" in this window, click it and drag the desired items into the new empty window - select a transport vehicle (ship, wagon) and the city where you want to transport this items, the NPCs will start to prepare the transport (need some time) and automatically the transport will move to the desired city, a message will appear to you in the screen when the transport begins and ends and you only need take inside your warehouse the items in the city where the transport reached using the same window you used before in the map to transport the items. Nobody can steal your items or attack your transport.
    This is really useful to move your gold and items between different cities without move your character and doing bored long trips crossing all map, you can go to do other things in your computer/real life or stay focus in market-place to buy something some minutes while your transport system is working.
    8.GOOD AND EASY START AND EVOLUTION
    1.Level up to reach Heidel city (your main base in the game, next one after Velia) only with main quest line and talk with all NPCs arround that you see a "?" in the map, dont stop to grind/farm low lvl mobbs up to lvl 53-55 because the money you will get really much more and in low levels you dont need much money is enough with the gold you get in the quest rewards and from the drop of the mobbs you are killing for the quests.
    2. Buy at Heidel with CP one "residence" to place your crafting stations and one bed, some "warehouses" as you need to store your things, one "stable" to get more space to save your mounts/wagons, one "refinery" to make "Black-stone powder" and 1-2 "lodgings" in the city where you are gathering to hire workers.
    3. Start with 1-2 blue workers gathering potatoes all time from nodes close to first city (Velia) send transports with materials to Heidel and craft / save a big amount of beer in your warehouse, you can set some worker to gather iron in any node arround Velia if u want, you will need later a lot.
    4.Sell all normal materials, tools, accesories, weapons and armors (arent better than yours) instantly in market place and save only special materials: "Blackstones", "black crystal shards".
    5.if you can/want gather while you level up get a pick and mine rocks arround all map to get "raw stone"  (you only can get it by this way mainly and its important) to transform in "blackstone powder" with workers in refinery buildings at cities, material that you need to craft 80% things in Black Desert, you can buy it in market place but you need big amounts in the future (market place is empty of this material and if someone list it in market-place instantly dessapear).
    6.At start buy a tier 2-3 horse (is cheap 50-150k silver) in "Stable-keeper" NPC, arround lvl 40-45  buy a tier 5-6 horse and try to get one with somes of this skills: sprint / drift / start acceleration / instant aceleration / caution, buy a cheap armor set to your horse at market place and as well buy a "noble wagon" as soon as you can (or maybe 2 ) to use as storage and transport in a future. 
    7.Dont buy any weapon/accesory/armor, expensive or special consumables, magic crystals or regrade items from market place up to level 50 at least you dont need nothing of this to level up to lvl 50-52 you can save your gold to try get a pet / outfit / Value Pack in any moment when you see the notices in marketplace and to upgrade the choosen gear set that you think its good to wear for your class when you reach high levels (55-56) and when you know more about the game, if you want a improvement to lvl up faster:
    -Buy "Yuria" weapon when you want arround level 35-45 upgrade to +15 and keep it up to lvl 56-57 then buy a "liverto" weapon and when you reach +13 or +14 in the "liverto" weapon sell the "Yuria" and equip the "liverto".
    -Dont upgrade your gear (+6,+7,+8...) up to level 35-40 at this level upgrade it only to +5 and only gear that you can sell in market place later, at level 50 start to get better gear set and weapon to your class and you can upgrade it to +10 or +12, at level 55-56 you must run with +15 all gear.
    8.Save all your loyalty tokens up to end game to buy later "Blessing of Kamasylve","Mount skill deletion", "Armstrong skill guide", +weight consumables or important things.
    9.Create up more than one character, at least two, to can stack fails to upgrade cheaper and easier good / end-game weapons, armor and accesories.
    10.If you are a new comer get full "Jarette accesoriy set" from daily reward / black spirit aventure or any event and dont care more about accesory set up to lvl 58, if you cant get only accesories with AP-DP stats and dont spend to much up to level 57-58.
    11.Buy and get active a "Value pack" from marketplace all time that you can play, you get more gold from your sales in marketplace, +100lt weight all character, can acces beauty salon ever you want to change your characters look, +5exp to all, +16 slots inventory all character and all cities warehouses.

    10.VALENCIA GENERAL INFO
     
    (WORK IN PROGRESS)
  2. Hello,
    Every time I party up with my brother we never see loot. When we kill enemies no loot is dropped at all and we are trying to figure out why. As soon as we disband the party loot starts showing up again. We have tried to research ourselves, but we cannot come up with an answer so there is no better option than to turn to the BDO community. Why is there no loot when we party up and what can we do to fix this issue? Thanks in advance for your time and help.
  3. A rank one house is when your decoration points have the most in your server, having a rank one gives you the ability of, 1 being able to invest in banks and 2 it lets you pick up crates with a lot of contents and a lot of values. this however is something that is not limited nor can be obtained by people that have spent money in the game. I speak in behave of people that can't even pay 10$ in the game that this feature in the game is indeed pay to win, i would like kakao games to make something about this, it shouldn't be taking the feature out of the game but rather make it more open for other people as well to get it, like top 100 or top 1000 houses. it is unacceptable that even spending up to 150$ doesn't even get you in the top 100... kakao games fix.

  8. Hello,
    im pretty new to the game and i´m not even sure if im posting in the right threat (sorry if not).
    Well I´m mainly following the quest of this black demon thing ^^ and my question is, if this is some kind of the tutorial missions or something. My last Quest I did for the "Demon" is something with a dragon stature. 
  9. (Ignore pls if this is already brought up)

    I was tooling around in the character creator, and I noticed after the recent maintenance from a while back, I saw some P's near some of the current hairstyles. So far, they're only on Witch and Tamer ( as shown below ). The handy-dandy little message that your shown is also below.






    For KR, this makes sense since the game over there is F2P... But here, we already pay to even get the game, and now we have to pay further for hairstyles that were free originally, when a single costume is already $30 USD, among other overpriced things in the cash shop. I can't tell if this is just runoff from a patch KR did ( Since the pop-up window clicking one of these hairstyles in the CC is translated ) or a fully permanent decision from now on.

    I'm just wondering what everyone else thinks about this so...
    Discuss.
  10. Hi my name is Wulfy got a character on Croxus Server.
    Anyway long story sort here are afew things players ingame and outside of game complain about:
    First up we got boss fight
    Lets be honest rangers problem.*most players complain about their power in boss fight vs class as melee warriors etc*
    Suggestion on how to fix
    1. Add a buff on the boss about a % dmg they do the further away from boss the more? (sounds stupid I know tho had to say cause a player comment on it)
    2. Increase the DP of a *Warrior,Valkyrie,Blader,Giant* This might sound unfair for all those out there but Hey even with high endgame DP when you block you still get a hella lot of dmg.
    3 Increasing hp? Might be good might not got no idea here.
    4. Any other ideas on how to improve this <reply>.
    Next up we got Item cash prices (Pearls)
    So lets say you pay 30$ for the game (for those who cant spend alot of $$ )
    Then you want to buy another costume? How much is that? Thats abit alot  around 3.000 pearls with a wep.
    Then your horse looks horrible? Want to change that? Pay more for costume.
    Then your house ?*okay this one Is kinda not needed but anyway just saying what I read*Another cash up bed?Or maybe something else.
    Pets and what you can improve.
    Now pets: Here is problem for those who missed the event (yea you did put a pet in event but hey for those you started the game late meh.
    Pet prices: around 10$ for a pet? just to loot? Well it is needed you cant farm without one at the same speed someone else is farming since you need to stop and Loot.
    You could add a pet to Loyaltys? Or maybe get one by ingame?*Then the people that bought the pets would want a refound* 
    Even allow players to sell pets?*People will complain about Pay2Win then :/*
    Maybe one pet needed?Like increase the loot ?That would help alot most people would not compain about buying one but three a different story.
    Loots and how the Loot system works
    When you loot something make it possible to click "esc" to close the loot box *there might be a option didn't find it tho*
    So you wont have to click CTR and move the mouse to click Cancel. In combat getting hit by mobs this helps.
    Game Stats and what is the + Damage to humans.
    Last up we got this.Does Elf and Giant count as human?
    Saying this because people want to know for PVP if +5 Ap is better or worst then +5 human damage.
    This could change alot the item sets in game.
    Game support ingame.
    Add maybe a support GM ingame >Click N >Contact Support /w GM.
    This could help alot in general if the GM doesn't abuse the power.
    Well thats all anyway good job in making it better change this little stuff could improve a lot.
    Some things I posted might have been a bad idea if yes Comment.

  15. Post on Another Pass Request in General

    By Yatzui, posted
    Yea I know, a lot of you are tired of seeing these posts, but I'm asking for a guest pass so that I can play the game, I would have bought it but something came up that prevented me to do so, if someone out there still has a pass, please help me out.
  16. Hey all
    So let me start this post by saying it is not a doom and gloom post, in fact I love the game and haven't been this excited about an MMORPG for a long time, despite it's flaws the game has so much potential and has had me hooked for the short time I've played. I just simply cannot get immersed in a game that has such a terrible draw distance. I have tried, tried and tried again to play with the limited options the game gives you in terms of playing around with the graphics settings to no avail.
    Let me also add that although my PC has far from amazing specs, it's hardly a potato:
    MOBO: Gigabyte G1 Killer
    PSU: Corsair GS800
    CPU: Intel i5 3570k
    GPU: Geforce GTX650 2GB
    RAM: 8GB
    I feel as though my PC would represent the vast majority of peoples specs, maybe not exactly but in that kind of ball park and by the way all of those components meet the recommended specs of the game (yes, even the GPU).
    I have no idea why a company would give it's game such great graphics if it only looks good while standing still, in towns I can understand but even out of town you have grass, rocks, buildings, fences, shadows all popping in and out right in front of you while out in the world. If anyone has any suggestions as to anything I can do to try and improve this, although I have most likely already tried it I would welcome any suggestions.
    As I said, it's a great game that is just scarred by this problem for the moment and as much as I try, it is just so game breaking and distracting you can't just simply ignore it. So for now I'll be hanging up my wizard's hat and robe and moving on, I'll be sure to check back on the game now and then to see if this issue is ever resolved but I hear conflicting information of whether or not this problem can even be fixed with the current engine.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this and if any of you have suggestions, as I said they are more than welcome.
    P.s: Pleeeeeease fix this problem, I want to get into this game so badly! lol.

    I got the in-game email and clicked receive to get my Horse, Furniture, Pet etc, but where do i find them?? 
  20. Is anyone else still waiting to get their stuff?
  21. Hello, I am trying to get my Explorer Package stuff but I can't seem to find it. I went into the shop, am level 10, and I still don't have my pet or anything... how do I get my stuff?
    Nevermind I found it. You have to go to Account
  22. As you can tell, I am new to the game and bought it yesterday. Since then though, I have not seen anywhere where I can download the launcher. I know it comes out today, but some people who don't have access to the beta or even the early game apparently have the launcher. Can someone let me know about it? I could just be going blind or being stupid (Just woke up) but either way thank you!
  23. Hello guys,
    Here is my short guide to pre-Mediah ranger, hopefully some of you will find it useful.
    The information below is considered to be true on Ru servers among most good rangers. We are behind KR in patches but this is probably a good thing for you because you are likely to have similar stuff on EU/NA although some of it may be different. I consider myself a min maxer, so hopefully you will find the guide useful. It's certainly not the most complete guide but it should get you rolling.
     
    Why ranger?
    To sum it up: not much cc, squishy, scales insanely well with damage, relatively mobile and easy to get started with. In fact as the damage numbers go up being the one who can deal the damage from distance becomes more valuable. You are less prone to ping and lag issues since you kind of do damage in a huge cone in front of you, so it's harder to miss. That warrior might be able to one shot you but if you can one shot him as well you will do it before he will get to you. It’s not amazing pre-mediah but it’s fine, just expect to die a bit 1v1 vs skilled and geared opponents, you ll have your revenge in Mediah. Playing ranger at high level isn't about pressing the fanciest combinations of buttons (other classes get more of that sht) but rather having good positioning, knowing your limits and farming 24/7 to get insane ATP.
     
    Gear:
    Pre-mediah BiS is: Chest + Gloves from Hebe set (2x socket, non craft able) and Helm + Boots from Zareth set (the one that gives you +stamina on boots). If you will look into it closely you will probably understand why. Having 2 sockets on gloves and chest is absolutely vital because chest gets +200hp and gloves get +4 attack speed from gems which is the only way to go. Literally. You add Zareth because stamina is vital for ranger, it might not look as such but it's your best choice nevertheless. Agery is a decent starter alternative but it's not as good.
    Other parts are pretty straightforward — get stuff with more +attack and possibly some +hit. As a freshly dinged 50 get Bares +1 asap (you can afford it), and then work on BiS: witch earrings, blue cultist rings, ogre neck, tree spirit belt.
    Steel offhand vs Bronze. Bronze is better in pvp when unbuffed, steel is better when buffed and in PVE. Also steel becomes the only choice once boss set is available.. Overall i recommend going steel. Having both wouldn't be terrible if you are rich. Having just bronze is probably a bad idea because it will cripple your farming  (and that's what you are going to do 95% of your time in the game)
    Weapon: Liverto >>>>> Yuria > Aswoll >>>>>>>> everything else.
     
    Gems:
    BIS are: Chest (2x 100hp), Helm (+50hp), Gloves (2x +2atspeed), boots (+25% knockdown resist), weapon (+1ats +1crit or/and infinity extraction). Attack speed is the most vital part. Get those asap, it’s next level.
     
    Skills:
    First of, there is no "skill build". 50 is hardly a soft cap since you ll get to 51 in roughly 25-30 hours of grinding and that will get you massive amount of SP. There are some priorities though, you might not be able to take it all right away but it's not a big deal, just keep working towards it. Evasive explosion shot rank 1 > (personal preference) Bow mastery max > Blasting gust max > Will of wind max > max evasive shot at 41 > Ultimate charging wind max > Spirit healing max. Around level 53 max feather or razor wind or both and consider maxing explosive shot for pvp. By that time you will figure out what to pick next (don’t forget to get Call from Sky and Flow: Kiss of wind when you have SP for it)
    As a fresh 50 consider something similar to this: http://www.blackdeserttome.com/calculator/ranger/7906#
     
    Skills awakening:
    5% of hp damage on will of win, 10% slow on blasting gust, everything else i d go attack speed or slow (up to you), having crit or +attack isn't the end of the world as well. Same goes for minus enemy attack speed (it's nice to have it on something). To change skill awakening you will need a thing that looks like yellow cookie and should be called "memory fragment" and drops from relic bosses spheres. Basically you use it to get an extra roll. Potentially you might spend a lot of those before you get perfect awakenings. It's might not be your first priority but make sure you do at some point past level 51 or so.
     
    PVE:
    Level explosive shot to rank 1 on level 20, max bow mastery when you have spare points. Afterwards find a bunch of mobs, hold A (D or S), RMB and keep clicking LMB. You will spend days doing just that. Go to catfish on level 46 and stay there till 53. If you have gem of infinity extraction in your weapon and explosion shot rank 1 and maxed spirit healing your farming should be sustainable (no mana pots required). At 53 you have a choice — max razor wind and go to tree spirits or max feather and stay at catfish. Catfish gives you twice or trice more exp while tree spirits might get you x1.5-x2 more money.
    Note: some people do use will of wind for farming cultists — that's legit, but catfish doesn't really need Will of wind.
    All purpose sustainable farm, groups of mobs: explosive shot rank 1
    Single target sustainable farm: razor wind
    Post level 53 weak groups fast eradication: feather
    Post level 53 strong groups farm: will of wind + explosive shot
    Important: One thing that would increase your farming time DRAMATICALLY is getting high grade knowledge of the mobs you are killing, aim for at least A+. You can drop the knowledge at Calpheon library for 10 labour points, keep doing it till you roll A+ or S, the difference is massive, mobs go from being tough to being paper.
     
    Daily PVP:
    This topic is covered in many video guides so here are few basics. There are three skills that you will use: Q (Blasting gust), F (Will of wind), Space (Ultimate charging wind). You unlock your combos at level 41 with learning ultimate evasive shot so make sure to learn it. Both Q and F combos into Space which is your main source of insane-wtf damage (Space is). It looks something like: Hold left/right, hold Q, hold LMB, release Q, hold Space…. drink mana pots. Same with F. Learn to do Blasting gust strafe both to the sides and forward/backwards (hold Q+side+LMB). Learn to use Call from Sky — it’s the only thing that makes you immune to damage (for half a second) while you are in the sky.
    Note: damage from Q is shared among everyone who is hit so you won’t do much damage with mobs around. Space and F damage do get somewhat reduced but not that much. So your typical encounter on spot would look like Q knockdown - A-F-LMB-Space-Hold until target dies. You got the idea. If you maxed evasive shot (which you should at some point) it will stun enemies around you for a brief moment so whenever something charges into your melee do evasive shot flip + F + LMB + Space while it’s stunned. A more fancy move would be to get close to your target (jump on it's head) with call from sky and as you move forward attack it from the back with the same combo which would do more damage.
     
    Mass PVP:
    It’s all about picking the right time and right place to go all in (and being full buffed with alchemy). You do most damage with "space" which is relatively low range. So during most encounters you try to flank your enemies, unload your mana, hide your weapon and shift + run away to recover lost hp and mana. Some would do feather, but pre-median it’s relatively inefficient unless 10 archers are doing it back to back. Use Q to chase or run away, use explosive shot backwards to run away (since it stuns those around you). Use Call from Sky to avoid damage. Assist your team mates by using Q for a knockdown and Flow kiss of wind (or kill everyone). Some would say that you need to defend archers, personally i feel better when i am alone. In any case archer should only be exposed for a very brief moment of time: between he goes all in up till the point when he runs out of mana (3 seconds) so i d rather not have giant running around the woods with me to protect me.
    Note: remember that your damage will be somewhat split among those who are hit with it, so the more people you hit the less damage they will take. You aim to kill rather than "deal damage" so make sure you engage 1-3 enemies at a time and kill them.
     
    Buffs:
    Keep as much of those as you can at the same time. Serendian treat is a must for any kind of offensive activity. Calpheon is a good defensive option and consider drinking tea (hehe) as it helps with levelling. Alchemy should be pretty self explanatory. For PVE consider putting experience, health regen on hit and whatever cheap ones you can get your hands on, faster clearing time won't hurt. For PVP absolutely nr.1 "o'sht its PVP time" is +critical damage, it's rather expensive but with this baby your power can double. Overall there are lots of good alchemy options, consider buffing it all when it's time.
     
    Spending labour points
    First priorities: trying to get liverto weapon from night trader, rolling high knowledge grades on the catfish and levelling the Kaya lake catfish node to at least 5-6. Then spend some to level alchemy, then spend leftover to afk-gather water and process it into purified water which is handy for alchemy. Then look for better ways to spend it yourself: there are plenty.
     
    Workers
    Depending on your market you might actually earn something with crafting but what you absolutely must do as soon as you have time / having a break from farming is getting at least few human workers in each town and sending them to get wood/ore from nearby nodes. Stay online 24/7 so that they never stop working. Selling whatever they gather is a good source of passive income and you will use some of those to craft things for yourself. It might not look like much but after a week or two when your workers level up you might notice that you are actually richer than you were before. 
    Later when you have a lot of wood you might want to start making packs which probably needs a guide on its own. To cover it briefly — you process (chop) the wood through pressing "L", and then use it to do packs through lumber processing facilities in your town. Packs are trade goods so you just carry those to the furthest connected city and sell it.
     
    Random stuff:
    Consider switching Q and E on your keyboard and assigning middle mouse button to right mouse button and right mouse button to side mouse button (for easier forward strafing) — forward strafing requires you to turn your camera to the side then press middle button and turn camera back forward and hold it that way as you Q strafe. It's not very easy to pull out holding the fiddly mouse wheel.
    Lastly, there are Diminishing returns on your control so keep track of that (it's shown next to your character)
    Enjoy your ranger.
     
    p.s. i did create an account on EU but i am not playing here actively. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
  24. Is there going to be maintenance on the release date?
  25. Are there others still stuck on this part? Whenever I try to open up Black Desert Online, it stops functioning. Kept doing this for a while, but then the installation download page appeared. But just as it was about to start installation, an error popped up and aborted it. Now, I'm stuck again in the same old launcher start up, with no end in sight and it's already been 2 hours like this. I don't mind waiting, but I wanted a taste of Black Desert Online before I go to bed. It's 2:10 am right now here in British Columbia.
