  2. 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 u want / need or to conect nodes. i post 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 just buy the gear in market place if you save the money its depends of 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 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" per arround 750k silvers to repair it but you recover only 2pts 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 to dont decreasse the 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.
    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.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.
    2.

    6.At start buy a tier 2-3 horse in "Stablehandler" NPC and 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 wear when you reach this levels and when you know more about the game.

    8.PERSONAL RECOMENDATIONS AND RANDOOM INFO.
     
     
    (WORK IN PROGRESS)
  3. Sorry that I didn't take any pictures of the Palm trees.... But I'm pretty sure everyone knows what a Palm tree looks like. 
    I decided to take pictures of every tree because a lot of my guildies were having troubles spotting different trees for the gathering guild quests. Some trees look very different but they are technically the same tree. I'm going to post them with spoilers. You can add on if you see any different trees that I may have missed. ^-^
    Acacia
    Ash Tree
    Birch Tree
     Cedar
    Elder
     Fir
    Maple
    Pine

  4. Yo guys, I was never very active on the forums, but I decided, that I will share these videos to help you get better with Sorc.
    They were unlisted for a long time, available only on Discord. Hope you will learn something.
    I plan to make bigger guides in the future for begginers and also advanced Sorceresses. Dont ask me when, tho.
  5. So, I'm thinking on running this for pure PVE:
    - Flash: 30HP / 30MP
    - Bolt: Accuracy / Attack Speed
    - Jolt: Crit / AP against monster
    Also thinking on Wiplash: 3hp / 3 mp
    Any recomendation? What are running you?
  6.  
     
    Hello Guys, since I sucked on the video, I will do a written guide on silver making, and hope this one will help you guys out. Big Thank you to Freeway for the inspiration. Its my fourth month into the game, I will try my best to organize everything, and below are the methods I know so far to make silver. There may be some grammar issue with this guide but any criticism and discussion are welcomed.

    Grinding
    As I am pure lifeskiller for now, so I am not entirely sure where to grind to make max profit per money. However, with combination of master 2 trading, Pirate Island is a good place to farm as you can sell the coins for massive profit.

Its my fourth month into the game, I will try my best to organize everything, and below are the methods I know so far to make silver. There may be some grammar issue with this guide but any criticism and discussion are welcomed.

    As I am pure lifeskiller for now, so I am not entirely sure where to grind to make max profit per money. However, with combination of master 2 trading, Pirate Island is a good place to farm as you can sell the coins for massive profit.

  11. Hey there I'm a ninja level 55 AP:100 DP:102 I was told to do rogues to get good exp and silver, and was told that I'll make easy 15 mil or more an hour, however, I seem to be struggling grinding rogues takes a while to kill em , specially the elite ones. Please help me, what should i do? Also what are some good skill guides and gear i would need ? I currently have full granil armor +9, liverto +15 weapon, quitar off hand +15, red colar earings and ring and a belt of shultz. Please help me, I'm still a newbie at the game and don't understand much, Also the node is level 2 and a half in the wondering rogues. In case it matters. Thanks! 
    Edit #1:
    Glad to see community is helping a lot (not)
  12. Just like the title, 
    i am asking if any helpful knowledgeable player, can create a very simple step-by-step guide to create Calpheon Crates Timbers.
    Please avoid burning any stage, and make easy to follow for beginners in the game. 
    This is my base questions, you can ignore them and just make a guide on your own way tho. 
    - What nodes to go for ? 
    - How many workers the entire process require ?
    - Where is the best town to buy their lodging ?
    - What types of workers is best ? Tiers ? Skills ? Workspeed ?
    - Where is the best town to buy crates work shops ? 
    - If a Crate was made in Calpheon by a worker from Trent, does it count in the trade distance bonus as an original Crate from Trent or Calpheon ?
    - What clothes need to be bought or enchanted to reduce processing/gathering time ?
    - Any extra tips to shorten the entire process or generate more profits ?
    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to Black Desert Online Forums
    Given that we will soon celebrate the anniversary of the game it mean you have more than a year worth of forums to read if you want to catch-up. So in the effort of making life easier for you let me summarize what you will see in here.
     
    You will encounter on these forums (and inside the game) 3 types of players
     
    The True Hardcore:
    These people have dedicated their life’s to the game playing hours you would not even be able to comprehend, setting alarms in middle of the night to run through in game activities. They love the game, respect the community and are usually very helpful, posting advice, or Videos, streaming live almost 24h7.
     
    The Hardcore “Want to be”:
    Try Hard people who dedicate all of their free time to the game but who unfortunately cannot spend as much time as the True Hardcore population. This creates a bit of tension between themselves as no matter how hard they try and how much effort they put in there is just no way they will ever catch up.
     
    The Casuals
    Casual players in BDO can play from a range of 2h day to 10h a day, I consider them casual, as the game does not take over their life, they will priorities IRL. They love the game and can also be addicted but it is not their goal to compete with the  above 2 type of players. They will create Guild wars with other guilds on the level and as time goes by slowly they will eventually be able to compete with other more dedicated player.
     
    Summary of what you will find on the Forum so far:
     
    P2W discussion Failed, Majority agrees that this is NOT a P2W game ! 
    Someone just got PK and just posted a pissed off thread for absolute no other purpose, but, Frustrations.You will get PKed, but in any circumstance is does NOT constitute a reason to post on here.  
    All the guides for all the classes, for all the gear are in the relevant class sections, use the search function. Sometime CM will even have it Pinned on Top. 
    Lifeskillers are left out of most of the updates and Kakao does not care for themAll updates on Lifeskills are NerfsBeing able to make Billions in Trading is a well-kept secretCareful where you fish AFK as people will find ways to Kill you ! Horse breeders are going extinctEveryone thinks it is a pity but nobody does anything about it. 
    Warriors complain that they cannot one shot all other classes, everyone else complains they cannot one shot warriors (superarmor)Ranger/Goats complains they are too slow and that they do no damage, everyone else complain they are too fast and have way too much damage. Berserkers do not really complain and help each other a lot but they all agree they look ugly, Everyone else complains about their grabs and insane HPSorceress are way too pretty to be this deadly but they all know it ! Usually complain they can’t “onespin” everyone. Everyone else is mesmerized by their beauty and dies (complaining) quietlyValkyries are all complaining of lack of damage, everyone else are baffled when they get killed by them Oh and Underboobs !Wizards complain they have to wait until the end of the cast before one-shooting everyone. Everyone else is complaining about their damage.Witches have boobs so they complain a bit less but otherwise, same comments as for wizards.Tamers are too cute to be on battlefield so they have their giant pets to do the dirty work. They complain they are bad in PVP, everyone else classifies them in top 5 PvP classes.Musa complains they are too slow and do no damage, Everyone else is annoyed on how fast they are and how much DPS they can dish out before going away.Maehwa were complaining about being slow but now they are slight faster they complain about damage, Everyone else complain that Maehwa has now the best damage burst for melee.Ninjas complain about being weakest class with broken stealth, everyone else complains they are almost impossible to 1v1 and they have stealthKunoichi are not really complaining at the moment and they are just playing hula-hoop with the bodies of their victims while everyone else complain about them. 
    Evasion or Accuracy Build ?Nobody knows !!! do what you feel right ! you are a tank, build Accuracy, you are squishy, build evasion. 
    Karma-bombing is a thing !Yes is flawed !No it is not flawed !Nobody seem to agree 
    The “unspoken” rule that the one who kill you gets to keep your spot WAS a thing.Nobody seems to abide that anymore. Hence above Karma-bomb discussions.People engage communication and play in groups more and more, vast majority on encounter are fun  
    Everyone agrees that Trolls and antisocial character have access to the game, you will meet them, just ignore and move-on ! 
    Main advice that always comes back; "Don’t be an ass and the player community will welcome you." 
    FAQ:
     
    Is it worth playing BDO?
    Most definitely Yes.
    Despite many cynical comments on the forums, Kakao and Pearl abyss are doing a fantastic job at releasing content on a WEEKLY basis. This is in my opinion an incredible feature of the game that keeps it alive and in a state of constant improvement. (ok sometime things go bit wrong but New content EVERY week, so come on)
     
    How much time should I spend playing to be competitive?
    If you count 24h in a day I would suggest you to play about 24h in a day. But even then, given you will start 1 year later that those who already do this, you have little to no chance to catch them up. So Play the amount which you want ! you can have fun playing 2h a day like 18h a day. The game is not a race ! there is no prize at the end as there is no end. Play at your pace, Have fun.
     
    What is the best class to play?
    See above summary for classes, My advice, play the class that suits your game-play. If you keep looking for OP one well it might change every week so GL.
     
    Is it ok for New Players to get huge Benefits compared to those who started March 2016 ?
    Yes, because without them there is no way you can catch up in case you decide that you want to join the Hardcore player Group. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
     
    So once again ! WELCOME to Black Desert Online.
    and remember do NOT under ANY Circumstance Craft ANY Grunil Armor !!!
  14. Post on Choosing my final class. in PVE

    By Zelveris, posted
    Alright, so I've been playing bdo for some time now and I've gotten 3 characters to lvl 56. My Wizard, Maehwa and Tamer. I chose to main my Maehwa because it was fun at the time. Sadley though after I got the awakened weapon it kind of became stale and not fluid with the combat. So I'm looking to get a different class to 56 and awaken it. I want something more fluid that can jump in and out of combat. I've been heavily considering my Tamer, Berzerker and my Wizard. Any suggestions? Am I doing it wrong? 
  15. Post on Night Vendor Help in General

    By Nox Demon, posted
    So, I'd like to know how to get to the Night Vendor, also some tips if people have em'. I left the game months ago so I don't know much about the Night Vendor, just that he gives good stuff for energy, which I always have maxed.
  16. Maybe I'm just very bad at searching (to be honest I know I am, ssh) but I wonder if there's any good and still up to date tamer guide out there?
    I'm more looking for PvE guides and definitely one that tells me which skills to invest into. 
    Thanks~

     
  17. Skills of dark knight class, all credit goes to 다뀨엘프 of inven korean member(rough translations bare with me)
    These do not include the dark knight awakening skills

     Scar Sunder

     Revealed Dagger - Weapons of the spleen (10% attack speed increase)

    Soaring gloom

    Blitz (moving invincilbity)

    Tilted balance (striking offset)

    Pervading gloom (recovery, MP 20,10,10 seconds armor reduction)
    Press space bar during skill
    It becomes the front guard state, but it takes less than one second, and the guard is hard to expect

    Scratch madness - flow : scratch insanity (marker generator)
    Damage is fine and cooldown is short, so its a favorite skill that you often use
    If you learn flow you will get 4 hits(up to 3 if you don't get flow)


    Extermination (100% critical strike, marker generated)

    Enforcement - Flows:execution (marker generated)
    If motion is clear and flow is learned the damage is also fine

    Silvia Camara
    Damage is excellent with a guard in use or forward guard

    Wheel of Fate (Super Armor)

    Raven ashes (100% critical)

    Land of the fall (some sort of recovery? 20)
    Strike around the character continuously
    Damage time is 30 seconds


    Theres a skill to activate the market when hitting the above skill,
    you can explode the mark with other skills(?) arrogant force/kamal silvia cham/fallen earth?(don't know these skills)
    It's wide so you can pull aggro similar to warrior


    Skill-enhance
    Definitely good to use for damage(?)

    Black spirit 100% skill
    Range is very bad
    There is no guard or super armor in use



    Seems like a sort of evasion/dash


    If you block it like a warrior block, you get a defense buff right away.
     
    That's all I assume I haven't went on KR BDO myself to try out DK but I will sometime today.
     
     
     
  18. I'm not a professional content creator, and this is my first video, so I'm open to suggestions!  
  19. Hi, I'm a lvl 56 sorc with aweful gear and I want to improve, but I don't know where to start. 
    I'd highly appreciate it if you can give me some advice on what I should focus on and what I should do asap, like investing in some important gear pieces.
     Below are the screenshots of my current gear and silver.
     
      


  20. Hello everyone, I just recently came back and found these gold armors with III or infront of them in the market. I don't think this feature was in the game when I left earlier on. Can somebody explain them to me? I left when I started working on my grunil armor, should I continue to make my grunil, I saw this new evasion armor that sparked my interest but I'm not sure if the evasion would actually be worth it. I have read up for the last hour to see some of the new features but if you guys to help a new returning player with some tips; please by all means do so. =]

    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.
     
     
     
    Wo?
     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:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmKBMpvn--U
    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.

  22.     Not surprisingly the chakram is primarily designed for dancing. Using it as a weapon follows the exact same pattern: you have to dance around your opponent.
    We have three kind of attacks: the pure contact, the distance ones and the gap closers.
     
    pure contact :
    -half moon slash : nice mana regeneration when off cooldown + spamable
    -lethal spin spree : great damage and HP regen, long CD
    -sah spree of sonan : not used, but can be a gap filler with HP regen when your opponent is under CC + spamable
    -sah chakram training : useless, but engaging with jump->sah chakram training while in air give floating to unaware target + spamable
    -flow : chakram rise : buff DP + mana regen
    -flow : wrath : locks you in place unprotected and slow, long CD
    -flow : indignation : frontal guard and knockdown but no damage, long CD
    -halo : efficient only if you have enough accuracy + frontal block
     
    distance :
    -lunatic discus : good damage + frontal block, long CD
    -chain crash : nice damage + super armor, long CD
    -delight blast : very good damage + nice range + can work with "fire and forget", which is using the skill and engaging other target before the skill hits
     
    gap closer :
    -dance macabre : great damage + long range + iframe, long CD
    -lunar dash : forward block + mana regen + spamable
    -ghost step : nearly spamable and spammed. most of our mobility comes from this skill.
     
        Now, the fun part. When you are dancing, you have to use the all given space, vary your moves and be fluid. We reflect this by a pattern in our attacks that never changes : distance -> gap closer -> contact -> disengage . Furthermore, we are a kinda bursty class, with quite long CD. That means that we use primarily our skills with the longer CD first, then the others, then the fillers / spamable ones. If used correctly, we can be nearly forever fighting without pause. Moreover, when a long CD skill goes off-CD, don't hesitate to use it ASAP. The last part, disengaging, done with ghost step, is our time to get back to a better spot to hit.  
    We can do some variations on the patten given. Here are the most common ones :
    -harass : distance -> wait -> distance : used to test an opponent without taking any risk
    -semi all contact : gap closer -> contact -> distance -> disengage : very common.
    -all contact : gap closer -> contact -> distance while in contact / others combinations of this. : basically a spam without disengaging. Powerful in 1v1 when your opponent is under CC
    -rollface: rftgybhuygrftdehynujiknhbgfed : when you have no clue of what to do

    Been wanting to do some BDO guides so I made a fishing guide specialized for auto-fishing as I felt some of the previous guides were a bit outdated.

    If you take a look can you tell me if I am missing something.
    Thanks.

  25. Post on Valk Guide in Valkyrie

    By AnimalWalker, posted
    Everyone plays Valkyrie different. I am lv 57 so this works for me. Lower lv and higher lv this all can and will chance.
     
    This is my talent build. http://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/24563
     
    Celestial Spear is the most important skill to have. I stance switch a lot right now. I have both a kzarka and ultimate piece of purification lancia at plus 18. and I still do more damage in long sword mode. I learned to use Celestial Spear as my pillar for going between modes. I try to be about 7-8 sec in long sword and 7-8 in lance mode. this seems to be the best dps for me. 
    This is bascially my pve rotation.
    Celestial Spear (S+E) (Ultimate) >Sword Of Judgment (S+RMB) . Will one shot almost anything. Best combo we have.
    Rigtheous Charge (W+F) > Sword Of Judgment (S+RMB)
    Sharp Light (Shift+LMB) > Sword Of Judgment (S+RMB) *Note that Sharp Light (Shift+LMB)  needs to be off cd for this to work.
    If Celestial Spear (S+E)  is still on cd, just spam 3 Sword Of Judgment as a filler or If you have Shield throw (S+Q)  use as filler.
    If not, Celestial Spear (S+E) then Sanctitas de Enslar (F)  Or Promptness (Space)  if Sanctitas de Enslar (F)  is on cd.
    Wave of Light (S+F)  then Purificatione (Shift+LMB) or Hastiludium(W+F)  or Sanctitas de Enslar (F)  to skill cancel because Wave of Light (S+F) will just have you a sitting duck for 3 sec.
    Once Sanctitas de Enslar (F) , Hastiludium(W+F) , Wave of Light (S+F)  is on cd.
    Blitz Stab (W+RMB)
    Then I spam Sacrum Ferit (RMB) four times as filler. I do four because I have .
    By time Celestial Spear (S+E) (Ultimate) is off cd, repeat, however, use Celestial Spear (S+E) as a hotbar button so you can switch to long sword mode faster.
     
     
     
     
    Your 2 best combos are
    Celestial Spear (S+E) (Ultimate) >Sword Of Judgment (S+RMB)
    Celestial Spear (S+E) then Sanctitas de Enslar (F) 
    I can one shot almost anything with one of theses combos.
     
    I used to use Shield throw (S+Q) but i just have no many spells to manager now. It is still a good spell to have, but it is still low priority to other big hitting spells.
    I know use Purificatione (Shift+LMB) only to skill cancel Wave of Light (S+F)  or try to heal a party member, the damage is shit on it. 
     Castigatio and  Verdict: Lancia Lustitiae just suck on damage for me right now. When I am 58-60 things could change.
     
    I don't know if other valkyries have to stance change as much as me. but my goal is to kill faster and this is how I kill the fastest. Note This is all for pve mob grinding. Pvp is a different ball park.
     
     
     
    A lot of guides say
    Shield throw (S+Q) > Celestial Spear (S+E) > Shield throw (S+Q) is a great combo, but I know for a fact that it is not working the way most people think. You are able to cast Celestial Spear (S+E) right after Shield throw (S+Q) with no delay, but doing this, you cancel the Shield throw (S+Q) all together, it will do no damage and not stun. But put the spell on cd. Celestial Spear (S+E) > Shield throw (S+Q) is the same damage as Shield throw (S+Q) > Celestial Spear (S+E) > Shield throw (S+Q) .
     
    Lucky, the skill cancel for Wave of Light (S+F)  works the way people think skill cancelling works.
     
    Another trick a lot of valk dont know is when you use Sword Of Judgment (S+RMB) final attack ultimate you get 2 hits with it so you have to hold S+RMB or just RMB for a half sec longer and with these two attacks, you can use one on a mob in front of you and if it dies and there is a mob behind you, you can quickly 180 and hit the other guy with the 2nd hit.
     
     
    Celestial Spear (S+E) (Ultimate)
    Sword Of Judgment (S+RMB)
    Rigtheous Charge (W+F)
     
    Sanctitas de Enslar (F) 
    For 57, I say these are the best skills for the skill addons.
    At 58 I will do my next skillon with Hastiludium(W+F)
