  5. Tamer Guide By Trollsies
    Introduction: I have played MMORPGs for well over 10 years. Of those 10 years 2 of them have been strictly dedicated to playing the Tamer class in Black Desert Online. I am now level 60 and have been for over 6 months. I've been in WaifuHunta, Gravity, Barcode, and FML throughout the last year as well as Support in KR. I am by far not the best Tamer out there, but I do have more experience with the class than most. I hope to help and inform the community the best I can. Enjoy the guide!

    Mainhand
    Bares: Gives +5 PvE damage, great for players who only care about PvE. I suggest not getting this item past DUO.
    Yuria: Gives +5 PvP damage, great for players who care about PvP and PvE. I suggest not getting this item past DUO.
    Liverto: Gives +3 Crit and is the first endgame item that requires memory fragments to repair. I suggest not getting this item past TRI.
    Kzarka: Gives +3 Attack Speed as well as the most accuracy per enchant. This is the BIS item for most if not all classes. Get this to PEN if possible.
    Trinkets
    Incense: Gives Accuracy +7 and Accuracy every upgrade. This item is best for players starting out who need to level to 56. After hitting 56 however, I suggest swapping to a different trinket.
    Needle: Gives the most AP of the non BIS trinkets. I suggest swapping to this for increased grind speeds and overall damage after hitting 56.
    Blade/Rosar/Krea: These items all give Evasion for large-scale PvP. I suggest getting one of these for Territory War PvP as they can become BIS for Evasion Builds. Blade being my person favorite of the lot do to extra HP.
    Nouver: One of the BIS endgame Trinkets. Gives the most AP of all the Trinkets as well as 10% All Resistance. I suggest getting this for large-scale PvP AP Monkey build.
    Kutum: The other BIS endgame Trinket. Gives AP,DP,PvE Damage, as well as 10% CC Pen. I suggest getting this for grinding, 1v1's, and small-scale PvP. This is the best Hybrid item in the game for doing a bit of everything, as well as my personal favorite.
    Armor
    Grunil: The most popular armor set for Tamers before getting full Boss Armor. This set gives +150 Max HP, All AP +7, as well as up to +8 Damage Reduction if upgraded to Yellow Grade. This set also has 8 crystal slots to socket for late game play.
    Rocaba: This set is usually used in conjunction with other sets and for PvP focused players who are going for an evasion build. The full set gives +75 HP, +75 MP, +7 Evasion, and up to 8 Damage Reduction as well as 8 slots for crystals.
    Boss: The best set in the game hands down. Gives +200 Stamina, +200 HP, Increased Evasion, Increased Accuracy, +1 Attack Speed, +1 Cast Speed, as well as 8 slots for crystals. Sadly, this set is the most expensive to buy and repair, but is still my personal favorite.
    Accessories
    Neck: Ogre/Layten/Seraph/Bares for AP build and Sicil for Evasion build.
    Ring: Crescent/Mark/BlueCoral/Bares for AP build and Red Coral for Evasion build.
    Earrings: Witch/Tungrade/Bares for AP and Red Coral for Accuracy. I will note here that Red Coral will become mostly irrelevant at level 61-62 with proper crystals and elixir buffs.
    Belt: Basilisk/Shultz/Bares for AP Builds, Tree Spirit for Accuracy, and Glad for Evasion build.
    Best Crystals Setup
    Weapon: x2 Black Magic Crystal - Precision (20% CC Pen and +4 Accuracy)
    Trinket: x2 Awakened Spirit's Crystal (+10 Hidden AP and +300 HP)
    Helmet: x2 Ancient Magic Crystals of Enchantment - Agility (+10 Evasion)
    Armor: x2 Magic Crystal of Infinity - Evasion (20% Special Evasion) or Magic Crystal of Perfection (+1-2 Luck) until max luck for grinding.
    Gloves: x1 Black Magic Crystal - Viper ( +1 Attack Speed, +1 Cast Speed, and +2 Accuracy) and x1 Black Magic Crystal - Valor ( Crit +2 and Grapple Resistance +5%)
    Shoes: x2 Red Battlefield Crystal: Adamantine (50% Knockdown/Bound Resistance and 10% Faint/Rigidity/Freezing Resistance)
    Note: Buy a costume coupon with pearls and equip it to a +1 crit rate outfit like the Blacksmith's one. This will allow you to get +5 Attack Speed, +5 Crit Rate and +5 Movement Speed.
    Best Food/Elix Rotation
    PvE: Milk Tea > Margoria > Media
    Small Scale PvP: Margoria > Mediah > Knights
    Large Scale PvP: Margoria > Mediah > Valencian
    Elix: Intrepid Swiftness > Endless Fury > Advanced Concentration > Etc.
    Note: Use Experience Elixir for PvE also make sure to only use [Party] versions of any of the Elixir's listed above.
    Skill Tree
    Pre Awakening - Level 55 - 500 SP: http://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/36193
    Post Awakening - Level 56 - 500 SP: http://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/36194
    Post Awakening - Level 58 - 1000 SP: http://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/36195
    Post Awakening - Level 60 - 1500 SP: http://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/36196
    Note: When starting out you are mainly going to focus on leveling Summon Heilang, Bolt/Jolt Wave, Void Lightning, and Roaring. Once you get awakening you drop points from Roaring and focus on Echo Pierce, Allaround Spinner, and Legendary Beasts Dance. Though all the awakening skills are great, those are the ones I would focus on first.
    Add-On's
    This is my personal PvP/PvE add-on setup: https://gyazo.com/5deb8d840c8bbef717069278e2423915
    Note: "Flash I" is used when grinding to never run out HP or MP, you should only need a few pots to defend your spot from other players. This add-on can be replaced for something like "Void Lighting" for extra DP or "Scratch" for extra slows in PvP. The +20 DMG against monsters that "Jolt Wave I" provides is amazing for grinding, but when "Allround Spinner I" is off cooldown it should be used for an even greater increase in AP. The other add-on's are for PvP, either evasion, accuracy or PvP dmg. When starting out make sure to get "Jolt Wave I" first because of the Attack Speed and AP buff! After awakening, get "Legendary Beast Dance" first because of the 20% Crit Increase!
    Grinding Rotations
    Pre Awakening PvE Rotation Single Mob: Bolt/Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt/Jolt > Trample
    Pre Awakening PvE Rotation Small Group: Void Lightning > Single Mob Rotation
    Pre Awakening PvE Rotation Large Group: Void Lighting > (1-2) Roaring > Single Mob Combo
    Note: To maximize grinding efficiency bind "ww" to a single key on your keyboard, this will allow you to "Evasion" to camps faster. Make sure to watch your stamina while doing this because it can go down fast. Using "Legendary Beast's Power" between 3-4 "Evasions" is a good way to keep up stamina. Also, when getting low in HP/MP feel free to "Evasion" into "Scratch" then "Flash/Pole".
    Post Awakening PvE Rotation Single Mob: Bolt/Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt/Jolt > Echo Pierce > Allround Spinner
    Post Awakening PvE Rotation Small Group: Void Lightning > Single Mob Rotation
    Post Awakening Pve Rotation Large Group: Void Lightning > Bolt/Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt/Jolt > Echo Peirce > Legendary "Turtle" Dance > Leaves Dropping > Flow: Gust > Allround Spinner
    Note: To maximize grinding efficiency dodge roll and Beast Power to far away camps. For camps close together, use Moonlight Strike into Garuda to engage on mobs. If you ever feel yourself getting too low, you can either use "Evasion" into "Scratch" then "Flash/Pole" or use "Legendary Beast's Dance" into "Beast Rampage" depending on your current stance and or affected cooldown timers. Also try to use "Leaves Dropping > Flow: Gust" before every camp if in awakening form.
    PvP Combos
    PvP Basic 1 : Leaves Dropping > Flow: Gust
    PvP Basic 2: Void Lightning > Bolt/Jolt > Evasion
    PvP Basic 3: Evasion (ww) > Legendary Beast's Power
    PvP Basic 4: Cloud Stomping > Flow: Cloud Ride
    Note: These are some of the most basic tamer combos, but that doesn't mean you don't use them a lot. We need to use Basic 1 to start any engage because of the +16 AP buff. Basic 2 is used to create a semi-impenetrable cc barrier. Basic 3 is used to create an eyeframe dodge and close gaps while not in awakening stance. Basic 4 is used to either create a gap while in awakening form, or as an eyeframe to dodge all attacks, but never use it as an engage, you will die.
    PvP Combo 1: Evasion > Spray Scratch > Bolt/Jolt > Soaring Kick > Bolt/Jolt > Echo Peirce > Bolt/Jolt > Echo Pierce > Allround SpinnerNote: Use "Evasion" as an eyeframe engage into spray scratch which should rigidity your opponent if off cooldown. This gives you enough time to "Bolt/Jolt" animation cancel your "Spray Scratch" and go for a grab. After a basic "Bolt/Jolt/Echo" combo, finish them off with "Allround Spinner" so that if the opponent gets up, they will be inflicted with Stiffness. This combo is hard to get used to because of the animation cancels, but once you get the hang of it, it's quite strong.
    PvP Combo 2: Legendary Beast's Power > Moonlight Strike > Garuda > Legendary Vermillion Dance > Allround Spinner > Soaring Kick > Bolt/Jolt > Echo PeirceNote Use this combo if the are having trouble catching your opponent with a "Spray Scratch". The gap close that is done with "Beast's Power" and "Moonlight Strike" is crazy. Will catch many people by surprise, and even if they see it coming, not much can be done at the speed you go. Also, if you want to use combo from un-awakening mode, use "Echo Peirce" before "Legendary Beast's Power", this is a well-known animation cancel.*
    PvP Combo 3: Evasion > Void Lightning > Bolt/Jolt > Echo Peirce > Legendary Vermilion Dance > Allround SpinnerNote: Use this combo if fighting 3+ players during sieges or node wars. By using evasion you will force yourself between a large group of players, while there you "Void Lightning" and animation cancel into awakening weapon through "Bolt/Jolt/Echo". From there you hit as many players as you can with "Legendary Vermillion Dance" and "Allround Spinner". If there is anyone left finish them off with a different combo or run away with Basic 4.
    Hidden Effects
    "Spray Scratch" will cause rigidity while off cooldown.
    "Cloud Stomping" acts as an eyeframe.
    The higher your movement speed the faster and better you will dodge using "Evasion" from eyeframes.
    You can animation cancel most skills in awakening mode with "Rain Curtain".
    "Bolt/Jolt" and "Legendary Beast's Power" can animation cancel most skills in non awakening mode.
    "Echo Peirce" and "Allround Spinner" will swap you directly into awakening mode if used on the skillbar.
    "Jolt/Bolt" will swap you directly into non awakening mode.

  9. Greetings,
    I've updated the old Map from last years event-guides. This is an advanced map, for those who already knew the spots and need a better all-in-one-map. (If you need more details for a single spot, check out Dulfy's Easter Egg Locations and Event Guide)

    I have found new spots while i was looking for the older ones. The 3 new Spots are all near Orks/Spiders and i haven't looked further yet. So i asume, there are way more spots all over the Map this year.
     
    Let me know, if you have found new spots too. So I can update the map for you!
    [update] - added 14 spots to the map. For the locations check out below, since they are not to find in any other guide.
    [update 2] - added 5 more spots around the marshlands.
    [update 3] - addedd 11 more spots around south and north-west serendia, and east-mid calpheon area.
    [update 4] - added 23 new spots of the oceans, from epheriaport to Iliya (excluded the 4 pirate-islands).
     
  10. Post on T9 Horse guide in Guides

    By Champlocker, posted
    T9 Guide
     
    Hi, this is a small guide on how to prepare for the T9 Horses coming to BDO.
     
    First of all, I would like to let you know I did this with limited information and no actual experience as far as getting the T9 horses, for I haven’t played the Korean version. This is just a guy making a guide because he didn’t find it on the internet yet. And if someone here knows more please comment below so people can find more information.
     
     
     
    All the different items and how to get them :
     
     
    Technical Training Materials: 
    Stone Tail Fodder : farming byproducts 20x (Simple Cooking) 
     
    Or
     
    Rainbow Fruit Gem: 10x Shiny gold seal (Imperial delivery)
     
     
    Elegance Training Materials: 
    Ferocious beast neidan : rare chance of looting from Khalk or Blue whales (Hunting)
     
    Or
     
    Breezy conch seaweed : rare chance of being obtained while fishing (Fishing)
     
     
     
    Physical Training Materials: 
    Pure forest breath : rare chance of being looted from monsters in the Kamasilve region (Grinding)
     
    Or
     
    Deep blue hoof root : rare chance of being obtained while gathering (Gathering)
     
    Or
     
    by exchanging 7x Peridot leaves.
     
    Peridot leaf : received from certain quests in the kamasilve region (Questing)
     
     
     
     
     
    Final Materials: 
    Rumbling earth fragment : exchange 2x Shiny golden seal (Imperial delivery) or 1x Horse race seal (Horse racing) or 15x Peridot leaf (Questing) 
    Swaying wind fragment : exchange 1x Shiny golden seal (Imperial delivery) or 2x Horse race seal (Horse racing) or 15x Peridot leaf (Questing) 
    Krogdalo’s origin stone : combine 25x Swaying wind fragment with 25x Rumbling earth fragment (Simple alchemy)
     
     
    I found a Post about it while doing some more research:
     
    https://beta-forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?threads/steed-courser-system-and-pegasus-awakening-tier-9-guide.209/
     
    I also have some of the data here:
     
    Each of these training areas can be increased using different materials which you must collect. A single material is equivalent to 1% increase in training. You can get a maximum of 100% in any one of the three training areas. You must get a total of 200% in training from any combination of the three areas before you can proceed. Once training has reached 200% you cannot apply any more of the training items. 
    If awakening fails, the 200% training you obtained through collected materials will be reduced back to 0% and you will need to begin awakening training again. Only awakening training % is affected, the horse’s level and skills will not change. You have the option of using 100 cron stones to reduce the training loss instead to 100%. The chance of success is currently estimated by players to be at 1%. 
    Will choosing to train different training areas affect the outcome of the awakening, or the skills and stats of the Pegasus?
     
    No, the current understanding is that there is no difference which training type you increase. Pick the ones you find easiest to collect items for. 
     
    Will the stats of my T8 affect the stats of my Pegasus?
     
    Unfortunately no, your Pegasus will gain stats and skills independent of what you T8 may have had. Your level 30 Pegasus may turn out to be slower or faster than you T8 was. Take a look in the Pegasus Details section of this guide for an example of the stats a level 30 Pegasus may have. 
     
     
     
    I Hope I have Helped you get Ready before it’s too late. I know I will be doing these steps:
     
    - Imperial delivery   - Gathering   - Simple cooking   - Simple alchemy   - Being lvl 60+
     
     
    Let me know if you liked this or not and how to improve for any possible new Guides.
     
    P.s. I have 4 T8’s without the Course requirement so being able to get one is very hard or very expensive. (total t8’s : 4)
     
  11. Hi Fellas! 

    Who is so good that he can spent time to teach others?
    I am serious about that cause I just returned from BDO after a 6 months paus. Before I was playing on US and managed to get 2 chars on 57 and 2 more on 55. That was last year August.
    Now I returned and I could use a little help in setting up a good economy.
    I want to be clear about that, I am looking for someone to establish a long-term partnership. I used to play with a friend who spent like me over 600€ in this game.
    We separated our focus so everyone could benefit from the other and get really good in one thing or update the other if something new came up. It was really cool and fun.

    This friend is no longer playing so I give it a try here.

    cya,
    Chris
  12. Sniper Elite 3 profile works really great with BDO. Shadows are rendering properly in my case. Hair on my character are little bit messed up on top but nothing dramatic. Some players might find hard to read text in some situations.
    First of all. This guide might not work for you ! (depends on your hardware). It did work for me (second part)
    1. If you own Nvidia GPU & 3D vision kit
    You will need nvidia inspector to force load Sniper Elite 3 profile for black desert exe file located in BIN (32bit) or BIN64 (64bit) directory. Change shortcuts in nvidia 3d play because they interfere with game inputs.
    What you need:
    inspector
    force load profile
    While in game, enable 3D via shortcuts and make sure its runing in compatibility mode ON (also via shortcut)
    Change the depth and convergence for best results via shortcuts
    Save profile via shortcut
    2. If you own Nvidia GPU & passive 3D monitor with polarized glasses
    what you need:
    Nvidia 3D play trial 14 days, or buy full version (I absolutely recommend trial version fisrt to try the whole thing) 3D Play
    Zalman monitor driver override guide (if you allready have that Zalman monitor you dont need this) zalman driver override guide
    Enable and test stereoscoping 3D in Nvidia control panel (you need to do the driver override first)
    If you tested stereoscopic rendering but looks strange, turn your 3D glasses upside down. Its good now ? If yes you will need 3D vision eye swapper eyeswapper
    Change shortcuts for nvidia 3d play in Nvidia control panel because they interfere with game inputs
    Make sure that stereoscoping 3D is enabled in Nvidia control panel
    Nvidia inspector inspector
    Force load Sniper Elite 3 profile for black desert exe file located in BIN (32bit) or BIN64 (64bit) directory. force load profile guide
    While in game, enable 3D via shortcuts and make sure its runing in compatibility mode ON (also via shortcut)
    Change the depth and convergence for best results via shortcuts
    Save profile via shortcut

  14. 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).

    10.VALENCIA GENERAL INFO
     
    (WORK IN PROGRESS)
  15. 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
    White Cedar
     
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18.  
     
    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.

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.

  23. 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)
  24. 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 !!!
