  6. I have a Nintendo Pro Controller that I've managed to hook up to my PC using Bluetooth, and was wondering if anyone's been able to find a way to make one work with Black Desert Online yet or not. I've even tried using that one program that translates controllers input into that of a 360 controller without any success yet =/

    Any help with figuring out a way to do this, would be GREATLY appreciated

    *EDIT* Figured out how to do it, the program that reads the Pro Controller's intput has to be in either the bin or bin64 folder of your BDO directory (depending on if you're running 32 or 64bit versions of the game). Hope this'll help anyone else that wants to do play using one of these controllers
  7. Hello, this keeps happening to me after being online for a while (about 1h). Why? And how do I fix this? Do I have to re-install the game?

  8. I'm fairly new to the game but I was wondering how gear progression works. I am planning on buying the Grunil armor set but should I shell out the bit more to get the blue tier set? Eventually I want to upgrade it to gold tier so how does it work? Do I need to upgrade a blue set into a gold set or can I directly upgrade a green set into a gold?
    Also while i'm at it, what does it take to upgrade a item to the next tier?
    Thanks
  9. Been stuck on this quest for months now, please help!


  10. I been stuck on Moving Ahead Quest given by Zobadi for months now. I wasted to much energy, it's impossible to have a count on. I keep thinking it's a spefic location... I dont know where to dig, and what I read online didnt help me at all. It seemed the circle for the quest was larger than it's now. It looks like this now:


  11. Saved up some money for awakening. Currently at level 55 tamer, reaching 56 today. Have the generic +7 blue awakening weapon.
     
    I heard that awakening damage is based off of primary weapon ap as well? So should i just invest in a TRI Kzarka primary or is it better to be more well rounded with accessory and awakening weapon upgrades? Looking to spend 500m and my enhancing RNG is complete ass. Please help, thank you!

  12. How do I upgrade armour (Increase Defence) that takes up 4 slots Jarrate's Armour for example?
  13. I can't sell any monster drops (and even fishing junk) to any vendors, both the ones that gives extra money if you trade a certain number, and just junk ("Vendors will buy this for a cheap price"). And this goes for the stuff i've acquired before and after the patch. I'm able to sell non-monster drops like potions and stuff bought from vendors themselves.
    I tried:
    > selling to different merchants (general, furniture, a bunch) in Velia, Calpheon, Heidel.
    > going on different channels
    > rearranging my inventory
    > clearing the majority of my inventory until there's 4 rows empty
    > turning on/off auto-arrange
    > going over 100% weight and below.
    > waiting days
    > selling one or multiple of the item
    > selling different monster drops
     
    ( the above was written by a previous user in 2016, I am experiencing exacly the same atm.
    I have tried all the suggestions on that post but I still cant fix this wondering if anyone else if having this issue, I am in London, not sure if this has anything to do with this. My game is also completely up to date.
  14. Hey! I'm level 50 at my character, pm me if you have free gift package! Would love it thx
  15. 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!

    Profile: http://imgur.com/a/0tIqd
    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.

    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

    Small Scale PvP: Margoria > Mediah > Knights
    Large Scale PvP: Margoria > Mediah > Valencian

    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.

  17. Post on LAG - D-SYNC in Suggestions

    By Pyper, posted
    I have been a horse trainer since the game started. However, with the horrible lag spikes & disconnects, all horse trainers know that the lag is just impossible.  I set my horse (or wagon)  up to auto-run - 10 mins later - I come back to check on her before heading off to work and she is standing in the middle of the road - no horse in sight.  She is lvl 34 so i know no one pvp'd her.
    I run back to tariff and my horse is hurt and in the stable..  This happens repeatedly.  I am making no gains in leveling my horses at this point.  These issues have been going on for as long as I can remember in this game, - we, as players keep asking for it to be fixed..... but nothing happens.   I feel certain you are going to lose many many customers if it doesn't get fixed - SOON.
  18. I just downloaded the game and for some reason it won't open. I'll try to open the launcher but then it just crashes before it's even fully loaded or just not open at all. anyone know what I'm supposed to do? i just added it to the exception list on my anti-virus and it still wont work. i also tried disabling my anti-virus and it still doesn't work.

    ok it almost been a day. i kinda want to play this game i spent 50 bucks on. is anyone gonna help me?
  19. Hello,
    I am an returning player and I have a fairly problem getting this Quest http://bddatabase.net/us/quest/2100/22/
    The Last Quest I did in this chain just now was: http://bddatabase.net/us/quest/2100/16/
    But it looks like I have done the next chain a year ago: http://bddatabase.net/us/quest/2100/17/ becasue I cant get it from the soldier and I can ask him what the crystals are for.
    So I have done it already in the past Í think.
    Also this quest http://bddatabase.net/us/quest/2100/18/ is not there for me (also did it a year ago maybe) becasue I only had 2 quests there to do today. I think I did all from the farm in the past.
     
    I find it really hard to find the missing part. The Problem is Gurceau at Alejandros Farm is not giving me this Quest: http://bddatabase.net/us/quest/2100/22/
    And I know I don't have done it becasue when I process Wood I dont proc plywood. So this means I am missing this quest or? (Processing Skilled 10) And I also just did some of the Quest line as I said above.
  20. Hi all!
    Yesterdaty, I finnaly got the lvl 56 and I've done the awakening quests. I'm still a bit clueless as to what the rotation is for this class. 
    Anyone can help me please?
  21. Hello everyone!! I don't' see many art shops at all on the BDO forums, so I was hoping to find a bunch of great artists to do a few commissions for my character!! <3 It can be anime, realistic, doodles, lineart, color.....anything in your best style will do!! I hope it's not to much trouble and I don't mean to annoy anyone by posting this, just looking for some artwork!! Thank you for your time everyone! ^_^<3 
     







  22. I do not know if anyone else has been repeatedly disconnected since the last patch but I have and it has become quite annoying. Also on the Velia channel specifically I have been unable to interact with NPCs and I have seen some streamers also have this problem such as; Macilus. Please help me understand. What is wrong?
  23.  Is there anything I defiantly need to know? Any help appreciated
  24. Hello everyone! I recently got back to BDO and rolled a DK and bought a duo liverto and generally had fun. Now the problem comes in the form of trying to go for tri or tet liverto and the bad luck that followed. My current failstacks on 3 characters are 63, 49 and 40 with a pri liverto. The question I have is how do I best use these? my other gear is a mix of pri/duo grunil+steel taritas, and pri witches, pri MoS and +0 crescent, tri bares neck and pri glad belt.

    Thanks for all the info in advance!
  25. Hi.
