  1. You are out looking for a grind spot, be it Sausans or Pirates, and they are all taken.
    Change channels. You see a spot that appears clear and begin the grind. Player comes out of nowhere and kills you then says spot taken.
    You're "triggered" and pk the person to steal said spot or you walk away and eventually find a new spot.
    Finally found a new spot and player walks over....
    A.) Luckily, they walk away.
    B.) They try to out grind you out of your spot  solo or with another party. 
    C.) Flag up and try to pk you out (Solo or with party)
    D.) Party up with you... again solo or with his or her own party.
    In the end, all three endings lead to greatly diminished efficiency. Whether you are a veteran grinding out hours for a fraction of a percent or new player just trying to get your foot in the door. Option A will only happen X amount of times before B, C or D come around.
    Sharing isnt necessarily bad but grinding alone gets you the most exp/loot for your time in most cases. Plus you pk'd, changed channels X amount of times till you got this spot So why should you share it?
    Weirdly enough this mmo has a way of making you perceive every other unknown player as a threat to your progress. In which case flagging up or karma bombing becomes a go-to method of continuing optimal efficiency (thus the Griefing cycle!). 
    Separate loot (which other games have implemented) and removing the exp reduction in party could help alleviate the issue. 
  2. Is it possible to "save" those 30 days of being allowed to play on 200% xp channels? I mean I would like to start playing the game again but dont currently and in next 1,5 month have time to grind and level up so I would just afk process/fish/craft to make some money.
    So my question is - is it better to not come back at this point and do it once I have time to grind to actually benefit from those 30 days of 200% xp?

  8. I started playing when the game launched. I played for like 3 months and advanced my alchemy to Artisan 4.  I did this just by crafting porducts and then when xp started slowing down I started doing the Olvia dailies. After a while xp coming from crafting products was so negligible, it wasn't worth doing it. I'd rather save my rare materials so that I could countinue doing dailies for a long time. Then, I broke down, couldn't take the repetition any longer and quit.
    So now I came back and started doing the dailies again, but I already feel the intolerance again. The question is: for how long are we supposed to do the same old dailies again and again as the only way to advance alchemy? Is this supposed to be forever, a chore to perform every day? I have no hopes of getting a response from Daum, but I'd like to know other people's perspective on this.
  9. Hey i'm a returning BDO player after a long brake and I want to get a fresh start, I'm wondering which class is currently the fastest at grinding after the Awakening patches? This can also include the Dark Knight if you have some knowledge of how strong the class is in PvE from the Korean servers as I know it hasn't reached NA yet. I'm waiting to log in to make sure the Double XP server doesn't start its countdown till I know what class I want to play.
    Helms Höhle Grinding Guide     
    Ich möchte euch hier erläutern, wie ich rund 15-30 Mio Silber die Stunde mache, indem ich die Helm Golems Farme.
     Westlich vom Elric Schrein ist die Node Helms Höhle und auch der Eingang in diese.
    Muss ich die Node ausbauen?
    Ihr müsst dies nicht. Jedoch baue ich meine Grindin Nodes aufgrund von erhöhtem Trashloot immer aus.
    Meine Node ist derzeit auf Level 9
    Gear Anforderung:
    Ein Ap Wert von 160+ sollte reichen um die 14 vorhandenen Helm Golems in der Channel Cooldown Zeit von 15minuten zu töten
    Buff Food:
    Buff Food wird nicht benötigt, dennoch kann es euch je nach AP/DP helfen, wenn ihr Serendia, Mediah, Valencia und/oder Calpheon Spezial zu euch nehmt.
    Wo sind die Golems?
    Die genauen Spawn Punkte und die in meinen Augen beste Route werde ich euch am Wochenende nachliefern.
    Vorerst kann ich euch dieses Video aus Youtube bereit stellen:
    Dies ist nicht ganz meine Route aber vorerst sollte dies ausreichen
    Wie viel Silber mache ich die Stunde?
    Dies variiert recht Stark, aber 15 Millionen solltet ihr mindestens innerhalb 1 Stunde bekommen.
    Dies ist eine Durchschnittliche Ausbeute von mir:
    3X Scarla Necklace = 6,6 Mio
    16 Schwarzsteine = 3,2 mio
    12 Verbotene Bücher = 9,6 mio
    Trashloot = 2 mio
    Rüstungsteile = 1,5 mio
    Gesamt: 22,9 mio
    Wie funktioniert das Ganze?
    Ziel ist es die Elite Mobs Namens Helm Golem zu töten. Es gibt im besten Fall je Channel 14 Stück. Diese Mobs haben eine ehöhte Dropchance auf Schwarzsteine, Verbotene Bücher und Scarla Halsketten. Während wir die Golems töten, töten wir selbstverständlich auch die Helms die in der Höhle umherirren welche eine Dropchance auf den Ancient Guardian Seal haben (9Mio im AH).
    Nachdem wir dir 14 Golems getötet haben  stehen wir wieder außerhalb am Höhleneingang. Nun werfen wir den Trashloot / Sammleritems in unser Pferd und wechseln den Channel und das fröhliche Golem Kloppen beginnt von vorn.
    Der "Guide" wird stetig verbessert, vorallem jetzt am Wochenende.
    Bei Fragen oder Verbesserungsvorschlägen einfach ein Kommentar hinterlassen.

  11. Hello everyone,
    Today I finally got my Valkyrie to level 56. And now I'm a bit stuck on what I should upgrade/change next. I included a picture with my current gear. Atm I'm saving for Ultimate Grunil Armor +15 or PRI. But those are either 22 or 33 million on average. So I thought maybe it would be best to start for some more AP instead of DP. By tomorrow I'll have +- 25 million silver thanks to log-in bonus. If I sell my current chest I can afford a PRI one. But something tells me that's not the best thing I could do atm..
    My current stats are: 109/104/189. And I have no idea where to start grinding... I got 2 pets: a level 7 Hawk and a level 6 penguin. I tried farming sausans (even in group) but hardly 1.5 million silver tops. That includes legit 1 grunil piece with 5 luck... I really hope there are better places to farm for my stats. It's just I got no clue where to begin. 
    Any help/advice is appreciated. 

  12. Post on Musa or Sorc ? in General

    By Maxi_Moot, posted
    Hi everyone,
    First : Happy new year !
    Soooo... yeah .. like sooo many post on this forum,
    I have a doubt about That => Musa Or Sorc ?
    Hmmm... i know, the choise is really hard  !
    If some of you have a exeprience with Musa or Sorc and can tell me something like ... This is better about that or that ... 
    I dont need the GOD classe or something like that ... just ... a class who's not rolling on by anyone ( PvE like PvP ).
    So that's my question , i know the game is ONLY grinding and work and using time,
    Musa get a self heal ?
    Cause the Sorc yes and that's really good for farming ( no potion in bag so i havn't to buy some of them, more place for stuff ... )
    Musa is a paper or not ?
    Have CC ?
    Good damage ?
    Sorc have CC and Heal and good damage sooo ...
    I like both of them, just need a return of experience =)
    I prefer Musa style, Speed, Fire  and ... Samourail style x)
    But if he havn't any heal for survive ...
    Thanks a lot and see you again !
  13. Post on Mob Knowledge in Suggestions

    By Lily_Lotus, posted
    Anyone else think its a little weird that you can be assigned a lower grade then what you previously had from on mob knowledge. Like OOPS I guess when I spent energy to forget something and I really did the trick because 10 minutes later I know even less than what I did before. I think a system where players either can A) reset knowledge but are ensured to get equal or higher than their previous grade or B) For ever _ thousand kills on an enemy your knowledge can be upgraded via ___ NPC. It would lead to less frustration and a more logical role play factor. I mean does it not just make sense that if you kill lets say 2000 nagas you would go from a C- to a C in knowledge.
  14. hi guys just like the title i want to start a grind party at the garrison if anyone interested and don't want to travel alone ^^ 
  15. Post on Unlimited Grind Works in PVE

    By Xeon, posted
    I am the bone of my grind.
    Time is my body and EXP is my blood.
    I have killed over a thousand Sausans (read: sausages.)
    Unknown to Life.
    Nor known to No life.
    Have withstood hand pain to gain many levels.
    Yet, those hands will never hold anything that isn't a mouse and keyboard.
  16. Please populate more of the barren locations in the game with mobs people would want to grind. Examples are the dead space between helms and Cron Castle, a good portion of the Valencia coasts, the area between bandits/manes and sausans. Everything east of Trent to skeletons. There's too much wasted space and not enough good grind spots. Thanks.
  17. Hi everyone;
    Im a fairly new player, i've been playing for about 2 weeks and I have tested some classes.
    But I found my love in the wizard, such cool class to play with, but nevermind with this...
    Im here to ask you guys, where can I start my grind/farm? I have already a Yuria +15 staff and a Steel Dagger +7 (its about 70 AP), but my DP is so low, about 50~60.
    For now Im leveling up until 52 in the catfishes and making some minor income from them, but where can I go to increse my farm and buy some decent gear to keep going on?
    Thanks so much for the advices!

    from 30fs to 42fs to 49fs

    what am I doing wrong?

  19. I'm looking for a place to grind turn in items, like the naga feet or harpie feathers...
    I've searched around a bit but all the threads I've seen were probably outdated, I'm not sure if the game updated or not because I haven't been playing that long, but the values they showed for the turn in value on most of those threads were inaccurate.
    So far the only turn in items I've really found are naga feet and harpie feathers, are there any better to turn in that will make me more gold?
    Can I get a location where they drop and a recommended level? Also the rate they sell for would be nice (ie 150 for 100k etc)
  20. Hey there peeps,
    Murai here, looking for newbies that're looking to play this game long term and want to explore, make tons of money and grow together as a group of friends. It's quite obvious that it's better to fight world bosses together in groups of 5 so I was thinking of making it easier by posting on here so if you're new and want to be in a group and eventually start a guild hit me up on my email caomei.2315@gmail.com.
  21. Post on Valkyrie or Warrior in General

    By Palsiho, posted
    Hello everyone!
    So I am at a crossroads between two classes. Warrior and Valkyrie. My valkyre is level 56 and warrior 55 (rushing it to 56 to test the awakening) and I was wondering which of those two to choose. Which is a faster grinder, which is better for late game, which is better for pvp, and more and more and more. I want to know everything about those two in comparison so I can finnaly choose my class.
    Thank you to everyone in advance! 
  22. Hello All,
    I am still new to this game and have been trying to find a spot to grind on my Musa for some decent silver to upgrade gear. So, the man issue that I have ran into is at Manes i don't feel like i am clearing very fast and not making much silver, and I am not strong enough to hold a spot at Sausans. This leads me to wondering where to grind at. Where should i grind with the gear that i have? I am looking for good silver per hour and Black stones to upgrade gear and to stockpile for awakening in a month?

    By Whitesila, posted
    All i want is to find a guild that isn't pvp or gvg centrick. just a guild that enjoys the casual grind. I will go to pvp way late into the game, but grinding for gear, lvl's,  and sk P are more important right now. Reply to me comments or msg me. 
    Family: Patapoff
    i just left  guild so ill accept something tommorow around 11 pm PST
  24. Experience 84.644% Regardless what I eat and I used food, loyalty coupons, in a party, out of a party, exp weekend, not exp week end I get this
    One thing dies I get .001 to .005% for the kill. Weekend, coupon plus food and I still get mostly .002 or .003 the same thing I get no weekend and no coupons. This is Pirate island, Sausans any higher level mob. Leveling for several hours for 5.000 experience must be a mistake if I get it weekend, non exp weekend etc.
    Please fix this
  25. Post on Fixing Valencia. in Suggestions

    By Inochii, posted
    It's simple. Valencia have a serious design problem. o_o It's beautiful desert, but I think was to be a desert only in the artistic style and not in amount of players. =D

    Fact: Everything that you need to do just to be farming in valencia don't worth compare with Pirates or Sausans. 

    OBS: Valencia XP is good, but this game is based on MONEY/GEAR not just level. After spending some time in valencia, I made this guide: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/112635-updated2109-valencia-spots-guide/

    - And I tell you, some modifications was made in valencia in recent patches on the KR, Basilisks and Gahaz spots got more density of mobs. BUT. It's not the only thing that Valencia need to have to be worth, and the Sausans and Pirates get less crowed, and the levels 53+ can grind in sausans and 55+ can grind in pirates whiteout some level 59+ killing then.

    Here goes the changes.

    Valencia Part 1

    Fogans, Crescent and Nagas need to increase the trash value. Fogans to 2k (too far from the city and no rare drop but week), Nagas to 1,800k (close to the city and no rare drop, have a sightly higher damage than fogans) and Crescent to 1,800k (far from the city but with a jackpoint drop, crescent ring, they're have a decent damage.),

    Basiliks (i belive they're fixed with the density change, they have a good jackpoint rare item and trash item and are decent strong.), Gahaz, Increase drop to 1,9k and desinty, Cadrys and Bashins increase trash to 1,500k.

    Valencia Part 2

    Prision and Sulfur are good, BUT they're require a high DP and AP. Prision has too much Damage and Sulfur have too much Defense. But is the part 2, it's good. And they're itens can be 2,5~3k to move the strong players from the part 1 to part 2. o__O

    And the dungeons.. The dungeons are good. 

    They just need to make a logical and reasonable progression from Sausans -> Pirates -> Valencia part 1 -> Valencia part 2 -> Aakma -> Hystria. 

    But.. Peral Abyss failed to make the progression. o__o
