  1. Post on Guild Quest limit in General

    By Hyperblast, posted
    Is it possible to increase the guild quest limit from 5 to 10? its pretty easy to burn through 5 quests a day so having it set to 10 would be great.
  2. Introduction "This is an updated version of my reddit guide. Because my post on reddit was archived, I will be posting all future updates here. Feel free to comment down below, or contact me in game." I have played MMORPGs for around 10 years now. Of those 10 years 2 of them have been dedicated towards playing the Tamer class in Black Desert Online. I am now level 62 with 1850 skill points. I've been in Manup, Gravity, Barcode, FML, WaifuHunta, as well as Support back in KR. I am not the best Tamer out there, but I do have more experience with the class than most. I hope to give back to the community that has helped me the most over these past two years. If you have any questions comments or concerns please feel free to share them below and I will do my best to get to everyone. Enjoy the guide! Gear:https://imgur.com/a/qQvPWYN Profile:https://imgur.com/a/bgSho6T Gearing Mainhand Rosar: Gives +1 Crit and +1 Attack Speed at Yellow Grade. The best pre-boss drop mainhand weapon. I do not suggest enchanting this item past TRI. This is my suggested weapon for new players. Liverto: Gives +3 Crit and is the first endgame item that requires memory fragments to repair. I do not suggest enchanting this item past TRI. Many players will go straight from Rosar to Kzarka because this item requires valuable Memory Fragments to upgrade. It can also be difficult to sell on the market. Kzarka: Gives +3 Attack Speed as well as the most accuracy per enchant. This is a softcap item that most players will have for a long time. Although it has recently been outclassed by Offin, it is a much easier item to acquire, and many players will opt for it early on. Offin: Gives +2 Attack Speed, +2 Crit, and +3 ap over Kzarka. The extra Crit is more optimal for crystal/food buff rotations, and the extra ap makes it better for breaking into the next renown tier. This item is BIS for players between 253-269 ap, but it is very hard to get compared to Kzarka. Note: Kalis, Yuria, Bares, and Krea will all work as a mainhand weapon for new players, but rosar will do the job better. Only buy these if there are no Rosars on the market. Celestial Bo Staff Practice: Good for players starting out who can't yet afford a memory frag item. Gives +5 PvE damage but has the least AP of the lot. Can be upgraded to yellow grade for additional AP. I do not suggest getting this item past DUO. Azure Thunder: Your main staff until you get a lucky Dande drop. Gives more AP than the Practice staff, as well as, +7 PvP Damage. Can be upgraded to yellow grade for additional AP. I do not suggest leveling past TRI. Dandelion: Best staff in the game hands down. Gives the most sheet AP of all 3 staffs, but is also the hardest to acquire do to it being a rare drop from a world boss. Trinkets Magical/Questline: Gives a nice mix of AP, DP, and Accuracy, and has 2 crystal slots. This is probably the best item to use as a player starting out. It should hold you off until 56 when you purchase your Needle Trinket. Incense: Gives Accuracy +7 and Accuracy every upgrade. No longer a viable offhand for most situations. Only use a +7 until you get a green Magical Trinket. Needle: Pre-boss, AP offhand, that gives +1 Special Attack Damage. This will be your main offhand for PvP and PvE, until you are able to buy the boss trinkets. I suggest not enchanting past TRI. Blade: Gives Evasion +3, HP +100, and Evasion every upgrade. This item only has one crystal slot but gives the most evasion out of all the other offhands. I don't suggest you use this over rosar because of it's lack of two crystal slots. Rosar: Gives Evasion every upgrade and comes with 2 crystal slots. This item has less evasion than blade but does significantly more damage than it too. I only suggest this item for players going full Evasion. Nouver: One of the boss trinkets. Gives the highest AP and includes 10% All Resistance. This item should be used by ALL end-game Tamers for PvP. Kutum: The other boss trinket. Gives the most PvE Damage, 10% CC Pen, Accuracy, DP, and some AP. The PvE damage and DP makes this trinket essential for end-game grinding. Every tamer should have one of these. Armor Grunil Set: This set gives +150 Max HP, All AP +7, and up to +8 Damage Reduction if upgraded to Yellow Grade. This set also includes 8 crystal slots. This set is the best pre-boss set in the game, and should be used by almost all new players. Heve Set: This set gives +300 HP and 8 crystal slots, and up to +8 Damage Reduction if upgraded to Yellow Grade. Before the set effect changes to armor, this item was best for newer players. However, this is no longer the case, and the only piece that should be used is the helmet for an evasion build. Boss Set: The best armor in the game hands down. Gives +200 Stamina, +200-300 HP, Increased Evasion/DR, Increased Accuracy, +1 Attack Speed, +1 Cast Speed, as well as 8 slots for crystals. Sadly, its strength comes at the cost of being the most expensive set to buy and repair. There are many different pieces of boss armor that can make up a boss set. I'll list a few combinations below. -(Suggested) Damage Reduction: Griffon's Helmet, Dim Tree Spirit's Armor, Bheg's Gloves, Urgon's Shoes -Full Evasion: Strength Helmet of Heve, Dim Tree Spirit's Armor, Bheg's Gloves, Muskan's Shoes -Hybrid: Giath's Helm, Dim Tree Spirit's Armor, Bheg's Gloves, Muskan's Shoes Accessories Neck: Ogre/Layten/Tungrad/Seraph/Shultz/Bares for AP and Sicil for Evasion Belt: Basilisk/Tungrad/Shultz/Bares for AP, Tree Spirit for Accuracy, and Centaur/Weapon Core for Evasion/DR Ring: Crescent/Mark/Blue Coral/Bares for AP build and Cadry/Red Coral for DR Earrings: Tungrade/Witch/Blue Coral/Whale Molar/Khalks/Bares for AP and Red Coral for Accuracy Note: Renown system has made stacking AP the most effective thing to do now. Using accuracy accessories in-between renown tiers is suggested though; so don't get rid of those RCE's yet! Best Crystals Setup Weapon: x2 Black Magic Crystal - Precision (20% CC Pen and +16 Accuracy) Trinket: x1-2 Magic Crystal of Infinity - Critical (+2 Crit Damage) and/or x1-2 Awakened Black Spirit's Crystal (+5/10 AP, +150/300 HP) Helmet: x2 Black Magic Crystal - Intimidation (20% Knockdown/Bound Resist, 10% Stun/Stiffness/Freezing Resist) Armor: x1 JIN Magic Crystal – Cobelinus (+100 HP, +20 Weight, +5 DR), and x1 Magic Crystal of Infinity - Evasion (10% Special Evasion). Gloves: x2 JIN Magic Crystal - Viper ( +2 Attack Speed, +2 Cast Speed, +40 Accuracy) Shoes: x1 Red Battlefield Crystal: Adamantine (25% Knockdown/Bound Resist, 5% Sun/Stiffness/Freezing Resist) and x1 Black Magic Crystal – Swiftness (+2 Movement Speed, 5% Float/Knockback Resist) Note: Buy a Tailoring Coupon with pearls, then equip it to a +2 Movement Speed outfit like the Blacksmith's one. This will allow you to get +5 Attack Speed, +5 Crit Rate and +5 Movement Speed with the suggested Foods, Elixirs, and Crystals. Food and Elixir Rotation's Pre Boss Food PvE: Simple Cron Meal PvP: Exquisite Cron Meal Kzarka Food PvE: Simple Cron Meal Small Scale PvP: Hamburg > Knights > Kamasylvia Large Scale PvP: Hamburg > Knights > Kamasylvia > Valencia Offin Food PvE: Hamburg > Knights > Kamasylvia Small Scale PvP: Hamburg > Knights > Kamasylvia Large Scale PvP: Hamburg > Knights > Kamasylvia > Valencia Note: Just using Milk Tea for PVE is fine for players just getting into the game. It is cheap and can be easily paired with Mediah Meal for a similar, but more cost effective, choice. Elixirs PvP: Giant's Draught Solo Grinding: Giant's or Beast's Draught Cheap Group Grinding: Splendid EXP > Endless Fury > Remarkable Will > Steel Defense > Strong Life > Advance Concentration Expensive Group Grinding: Sharp Detection > Griffon (if applicable) > Grim Soul Reaper > Strong Draining > Lethal Assassin Note: Only use [Party] versions of any of the Elixir's listed above. Use Beast's Draught for mobs that you need protection against, and Giant's Draught for mobs you want to deal more damage to. Situational Soaring Wings Elix: Used to get to higher locations during Siege/Node War. Perfume of Courage/Khalk/Deep Sea Elixir: Used during big pushes in Siege/Node War. Enhancer: Cheap and very minor increases in magic/ranged/melee damage and accuracy. Suggested Build Path Beginner Just run through all the black spirit quests until you realize you are no longer 1-2 shotting the mobs. When this is the case, buy from the market a set of grunil armor, a rosar shorsword, and an incense trinket. Enchant these items using the blackstones you get from grinding. You should also go to the Calpheon blacksmith and buy the Root Treant's accessory set. From here keep progressing though the black spirt quests until you reach Mediah; you may have to enchant gear further while doing so. https://bdoplanner.com/TshiraSedicStalker Apprentice After you beat the story, you will be in need of better gear. Go to media and grind mobs at Abandoned Iron Mine, Elric Shrine, and Helms Post, for the Asula's accessory set. The Armor and Trinket are both given by black spirit at level 56. If you do not want to do this quest line, just upgrade Grunil Armor and an Incense Trinket instead. https://bdoplanner.com/PickaxeCatWeapon Note: Replace the Luck crystals as you acquire more luck through the title system. First replace the chest ones with "Magic Crystal of Infinity - Evasion" then the helm ones with "Magic Crystal of Infinity - Agility". Skilled Now it's time for you to get your weapons and gear up. Upgrading your gear to yellow grade is done by using Ultimate Reform Stones, which can be bought on the marketplace for around 5-8mil. I do not suggest swapping over to Liverto because they use up valuable materials. You should just save your Memory Fragments and Armor/Weapon Stones for a Kzarka. However, you will be swapping over to a Azure Thunder Celestial Bo Staff, and a Needle Trinket. https://bdoplanner.com/TalisBarricadeStaff Professional At this point you want to focus on getting boss armor. Try to get Bheg's Gloves first, and then decide what other pieces you are going to run. The Renown System has made Urgon's Shoes with Griffon's Helm quite strong against higher geared player, while the Strength Helm of Heve with Muskan's Shoes is better against weaker players. You should also pick up an alchemy stone, just don't forget to turn it off. In boss pieces you will want to slot expensive crystals instead of the cheap ones used previously. Just keep upgrading your accessories and you are well on your way to becoming a geared player. https://bdoplanner.com/IsabellaMasqueradeMonastery Note: If you are struggling to get boss armor don't worry, it will come in time as long as you keep doing your scrolls, world bosses, night vendor, and bidding. If stuck on gear, then just work on accessories. Also remember you can swap out blue coral earrings for witches. Same thing for TRI Marks of Shadow and DUO Crescent Rings. You want to get to most ap you can for the lowest silver, while also planning for the future. Artisan You are now at true end game. At this point the only thing you can do is go for TET armor, TRI yellow accessories, and a Sharp Alchemy Stone. There's not much else to say about this build other than "Welcome to Endgame!". Just keep getting your gear up from here and push for 60/61/62 and you will be welcome in almost any siege guild. Also start farming out "Forest Fury" so that you can get JIN/BON/WON crystals. https://bdoplanner.com/HeavenlyBaseOffin Note: Tree armor is one of the hardest boss armor pieces to get and many players will get Red Nose as a placeholder. I do not suggest doing this because a TET Ultimate piece of gear will do the same thing. Also note that while grinding you can break the cheap chest crystals for a luck crystal and vise versa. Master At this point you have reached soft cap. Basically you are done getting gear, and you are left with a build that is very versatile for both large and small scale PvP. I personally suggest that everyone goes for this build first, then slowly builds on towards some of the other builds mentioned below. Congratulations you are at soft cap. I hope to join you soon! https://bdoplanner.com/BarhansShrineOrnament Guru GGWP https://bdoplanner.com/JubreHearthWatchmans Optional Builds Grinding Gear There are many items you will want to get for PvE around softcap. Kamasylvia crystals for grinding Kamasylvia mobs, crit damage crystals for grinding squishy mobs, and black spirit crystals for grinding high damage mobs. You will want a Kutum until about 260ap, then you will need to swap back to Nouver. Here is an example set for someone grinding Gyfin Temple, and underneath for Gahaz Bandits. Notice cheaper crystals are used in the Gyfin build because death is often unavoidable. Gyfin: https://bdoplanner.com/SplashingScaryTaphtar Gahaz: https://bdoplanner.com/DragonCastillionsCauldron Note: Using your PvP gear/crystals for PvE, that's not at Gyfin, is fine! This is just the most optimal build for the two spots. Hybrid Evasion This build is mainly for players that join a T1 guild with friends. Using these items together will make you do crazy dmg, while also being extremely tanky to newbies. https://bdoplanner.com/MemoryVixenSharing Note: This build requires Exquisite Cron Meal to work. Skill Tree/Add-ons/Combos Skill Tree - Level 55 - 500 SP:https://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/116693 - Level 56 - 500 SP:https://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/116686 - Level 58 - 1000 SP:https://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/116687 - Level 60+ - 1500 SP:https://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/116690 - PvE Level 60+ - 1800 SP:https://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/116715 - PvP Level 60+ - 1800 SP:https://bddatabase.net/us/skillcalc/116716 Note: When starting out you are mainly going to focus on leveling Summon Heilang, Bolt/Jolt Wave, and Roaring. Before you get awakening, drop points from Roaring and Trample, then 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-ons - Suggested:https://imgur.com/a/HBIPu4d - PvP Only:https://imgur.com/a/rX8vBZe - PvE Only:https://imgur.com/a/aGlzbOW Note: "Flash I" is used when grinding to never run out HP or MP. This add-on can be replaced for “Scratch," for a quicker secondary engage, or “Fearful Trembling,” for pain damage. 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 of AP. When starting out invest in "Jolt Wave I" first, because of the Attack Speed and AP buff it has! After awakening get "Legendary Beast Dance" first, because of the 20% Crit Increase! Grinding Combos - Pre Awakening: Bolt > Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt > Jolt > Trample > Repeat - Mob Spam: Legendary Beast's Dance (Tiger) > Bolt > Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt > Jolt > Echo Pierce > Repeat - Single Mob Full: Moonlight > Legendary Beast's Dance (Tiger) > Garuda > Intimidation > Resonance > Allround Spinner > Echo Pierce > Mob Spam - Mob Pack (CC Able) : Moonlight > Legendary Beast Dance: Vermilion > Bolt > Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt > Flash > Pole > Thrust > Bolt > Jolt > Allround Spinner > Resonance > Echo Pierce > Legendary Beast's Dance (Tiger) > Intimidation > Bolt > Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt > Jolt > Echo > Mob Spam - Mob Pack (CC Unable): Moonlight > Legendary Beast's Dance (Tiger) > Garuda > Intimidation > Allround Spinner > Resonance > Echo Pierce > Legendary Beast's Dance (Tiger) > Mob Spam -Mob Debuff Combo: Moonlight Strike > Garuda > Leaves Dropping > Garuda > Flow: Gust > Garuda (Circle Pack) Note: To maximize grinding efficiency use "Evasion" and "Legendary Beast's Power" to get to far away camps, and "Legendary Beast's Power" into "Moonlight Strike" for close ones. If you ever feel yourself getting too low, you can either "Flash" or use "Beast Rampage,” depending on stance/cooldowns. Try to use "Leaves Dropping or Flow: Gust" before every camp. Also make sure mobs are debufed with either “Flash” or “Garuda”! ”Single Mob Full” should be used for World Bosses too. Trample Grinding This is a grinding method that focuses on using the skill Trample. This method will speed-up low HP mob clears by a large margin. Trample grinding can be used at Gahaz, Fogans, Nagas, Sausans, Pirates, and many more. Trample grinding is rather easy as long as you meet the requirements. -220+ AP With TRI Kutum -Absolute Trample -Fairy With Miraculous Cheer -5 Pets In Agile Settings up the fairy to auto consume mana pots is essential! First slot trample to your hotbar, then proceed to spam the hotbar key that Trample is set to. Make sure to use Legendary Beast's Power to go short distances, and Echo Pierce into Moonlight for longer ones. The only other damage skill you will use is Resonance off cooldown. Also, if planning to do trample grinding for awhile, change the skill add-on from Flash to Trample (PvE Damage and Attack Speed). PvP Basics - Evades : Leaves Dropping > Flow: Gust - AOE Spam: Void Lightning > Bolt > SS (Backwards) - Mobility 1: Evasion >  Spray Scratch > Legendary Beast's Power > Shift + AA - Mobility 2: Moonlight Strike > Legendary Beast's Power - Escape 1: Cloud Stomping > Flow: Cloud Ride > Mobility 2 - Escape 2: Evasion > Evasion > Evasion Note: These are some of the most basic tamer combos, but that doesn't mean you don't use them a lot. We can use evades to start an engage to use the +16 AP buff, or save it for the iframe mid-fight. "AOE Spam" is used to create a semi-impenetrable cc barrier. "Mobility 1&2" are used to keep your character moving at all times. "Escape 1&2" are used to either create a gap between players. If “Moonlight Strike” is down during “Escape 1,” you can also use auto attack to cancel rough landing. PvP Engages - Safe Short: Moonlight Strike > Soaring Kick - Safe Medium: Legendary Beast's Power > Moonlight Strike (or vise-versa) > Soaring Kick - Safe Long: Cloud Stomping > Flow: Cloud Ride > Moonlight Strike > Legendary Beast's Power > Soaring Kick - Grab Short 1: Spray Scratch/Hidden Claw > Soaring Kick - Grab Short 2: Leaves Dropping/Flow: Gust > Grab - Grab Short 3: Tree Climb > Hidden Claw > Soaring Kick - Grab Medium: Legendary Beast's Power > Evasion > Spray Scratch > Soaring Kick - AOE Stun 1: Legendary Beast's Power > Void Lighting > Bolt > Evasion - AOE Stun 2: Cloud Stomping > Flow: Cloud Ride > Legendary Beast's Dance: Azure Dragon - Alternative: Evasion > Spray Scratch > Flash > Pull > Echo Pierce PvP Combos - 1v1 Combo: Moonlight Strike > Soaring Kick > Bolt > Jolt > Allround Spinner > Echo Pierce > Garuda > Legendary Beast Dance: Tiger > Intimidation > Moonlight Strike > Flow: Full Moon > Resonance Note: Spam “Echo Pierce” on hot-bar to make the combo work! Can cut Intimidation if not enough SP, or having trouble pulling it off. - Group Combo: Legendary Beast's Power > Void Lightning > Bolt > Evasion > Swap To Awakening > Moonlight > Legendary Beast's Dance (Vermilion) > Allround Spinner > Flow: Soaring Strike > Resonance Note: If “Legendary Beast's Dance (Vermillion)” fails to cc all the players in the group, use another hard cc like “Garuda”. Grab Counter: Moonlight Strike > Allround Spinner > Leaves Dropping > Soaring Kick > Bolt > Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt > Jolt > Echo Pierce > Legendary Beast Dance: Tiger > Flow Intimidation > Moonlight Strike > Flow: Full Moon > Resonance > Surging Tide (Bonus) Note: This combo is used against a blocking target like a Warrior. You use “Allround Spinner” as a block breaking distraction, you quickly, while they are distracted, go in for a grab. - Alternative Grab: Spray Scratch or Hidden Claw> Soaring Kick > Bolt > Jolt > Legendary Beast's Power > Bolt > Jolt > Echo Pierce > Legendary Beast Dance: Tiger > Flow Intimidation > Allround Spinner > Moonlight Strike > Flow: Full Moon > Resonance Note: Use “Spray Scratch” or “Hidden Claw” as an iframe into "Soaring Kick," this will allow you to perform an iframe grab! Hidden Effects 1) Heilang will attack enemies while you are cc'd if you use "Command: Attack" 2) "Spray Scratch" will cause stiffness while off cooldown 3) By using "Flow: Hidden Claw" you are still able to use "Scratch" from the left and right 4) You can animation cancel most skills in awakening mode with "Rain Curtain" 5) "Bolt" and "Legendary Beast's Power" can animation cancel most skills in non-awakening mode 6) “Resonance” can animation cancel most skills in both awakening and non-awakening mode 7) "Echo Pierce" and "Allround Spinner" will swap you directly into awakening mode if used on the skill-bar 8) "Jolt" will swap you directly into non awakening mode 9) "Moonlight Strike" and "Legendary Dragon Dance" can animation cancel "Flow: Cloud Ride" Helpful Links Twitch:https://go.twitch.tv/trollsies My Discord:https://discord.gg/Ff7q9rr Official Tamer Discord:https://discord.gg/zn6puC6 NA World Boss Discord:https://discord.gg/XrSRRQm EU World Boss Discord:https://discordapp.com/invite/MnruptX Renown Score Chart: https://itzdarkvoid.wordpress.com/2018/04/18/black-desert-online-renown-score-bonuses/ Site To Plan Out Your Gear:http://bdoplanner.com/ Site to Look Up Items:http://bddatabase.net/us/ Leveling Guide:http://www.blackdesertfoundry.com/leveling-1-60-guide/ YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/c/trollsies Guide Log 4/18/17: Guide Released 4/19/17: Added Section For Awakening Weapons & Grammar Fixes 5/22/17: Updated a lot of info and made into an all around more accurate guide as well as added a new section "Suggested Builds" 11/3/17: New Kama crystals added, full rework of suggest builds, fixed food and elixir rotations, and moved guide to forums. 5/2/18: Made major updates regarding boss gear, renown system, absolutes, cc changes, builds, skills, text, etc. 7/16/18: Updated for for new PvP system, added Offin to builds, changed all skill pages, changed build path to grunil, and introduced new elixirs.

  4. Post on MMO Gathering in Suggestions

    By Foghen, posted
    Hi there!
     
    So I have this idea where gathering becomes a multiplayer option, where you team up with your mates and go gather some wood, timber, logs og what ever name you want to call it.
     
    Starting with the concept: 2 player lumbering saw
    What this will do is party leader will be wearing the saw in lef tool slot and use it on a tree then 2nd player in party will interact with the saw and there will be lumbering.
    The saw will have a higher yield than axe and a faster gathering rate since 2 players work together
    The saw will come in low durability white up to high durability yellow
    The will be craftable:
    White Rarity 5 Ash Timber and 15 Copper Ingot,
    Green Rarity 10 Ash Timber, 15 Bronze Ingot and 10 Black Stone Powder,
    Blue Rarity 5 Maple Timber, 15 Steel and 20 Black Stone Powder,
    Yellow Rarity 10 Maple Logs, 20 steel, 5 Pure Iron Crystal and 40 Black Stone Powder
    Which will make it rather expensive and ofcourse you will need someone to work with
    It will have twice the durability of a lumbering axe of the same rarity so white = 60 durability, Green = 120 durability, Blue = 260 durability and Yellow = 500 durability
     
    I also see this possible with a fishing net but they would have combined effects of rods so there would be a net with combined effects of Balenos and Epheria rod so it had auto-fishing time and increased durability OR Mediah and Calpheon with higher chance of rare and big fish

    I would love this rings in game...diamonds bro!!!
  6. Post on Growing tree's in General

    By Hyperblast, posted
    So i'm sitting here beating on tree's for an eternity just so I can get enough logs to make the epheria sailboat and I had a thought....what if we could grow our own tree's and get logs from them?  we would get a lot more growing our own than running around in the forests all day beating on all of the tree's just to get 1-2 logs at a time.
  7. Hey why isn't these rings in the game yet?! http://bddatabase.net/us/item/12125/
    I'v been holding onto all the mats since altinova was released and they are just sitting in my warehouse collecting dust and I really want these rings!!! qq
  8. I'm pretty sure this was talked about in a post long ago but I was wondering, would it be a good idea to remove the "collect money" button from the bottom right of the screen and have the guild funds sent directly to players that still have a running contract so they wouldn't forget to get their payment?  I'm a guild leader of a new guild and I would like to have this so new players can receive some extra money every day in the mail on reset.
    I also think there should be an option to hide all players in towns/cities and adjust it to make it hide every1 or hide every1 except for guildies and party members because....look at heidel...cant even run through it without having to go full potato.  You could still see the white squares of players running around on your mini-map, but cant see them on screen.
  9. So, I recently got a PC upgrade, and wanted to finally give this game a try. Looked really fun and interesting.
    But, I've never honestly played a real MMO before. I'm sitting back, playing Runescape, only for the sake of friends.
    and I've never really played anything else.
    My question is this game honestly recommendable to someone who has little MMO experience. 
    I guess RuneScape is one, but I know people generally get toxic when talking about it.
    If you know anything about it, I have 1860 total level and 127 combat on RS3
    1400 total on oldschool with 94 combat.
    Anyways, I'd love to get into a fresh new game and the gameplay just looked incredible.
    Is it worth playing and abandoning RuneScape for sake of Fun, Reward, and overall, entertainment after 
    all the grind?
  10. Hey folks,
     
    Let's get right to it! BDO has lot's of content... Hiding somewhere behind lot's and lot's of boring NPC talk.  And everybody knows there is lore and story behind the setting of BDO but it just doesn't show, you have to actively search for it.
    And as most of us will agree upon, long searching for the lore and story in an MMORPG-sandbox doesn't actually help players to bond with the world.  The motto of "The New World" is quiet cynical: "A world every player can call it's home" but what does that "home" mean, when you don't have a clue on what's going on in the world?  I value the efforts of the devs for updating this game in an insane fast way, I do, but they should focus on more than just new area's and awakenings...
    The feeling I have amongst many other players is that you can do like a lot of things in BDO but there is no point in doing them unless you want to be the best crafter, do endless pvp, grinding mobs, have the best gear, reach way beyond your awakening.... A lot of those listed things you can do in other games, games that are too superficial.
    I have some ideas/concepts that might make players bond more with the BDO world:
    A lot of NPC's are too stationairy is one of the first problems I want to tackle. I know it is quiet demanding of pc's but please make NPC's do more than just wave or some emote, let them walk around, carry out their jobs, "talk to other NPC's. I know there are NPC's who already travel and do other "tasks" but not quiet enough. Look at skyrim, for example that maid at the forge, in the noon she was forgeing weapons, at another point in the day she was in her shop, at night in her bed,.... Or the witcher for example, with it's breathing world, NPC's do stuff, they have emotions  and interesting conversations with other NPC's,...A second improvement would be more and better cut-scenes, even for side quests. In the beginning of the game there should be more explanation about the black desert (I didn't know why this game was called black desert until the valencia update came out... And still it's a weird name but that's off topic). Cut-scenes help the players to understand why they must do there quests, what's going on in the world, what bad guys there are or wich wars there are spreading across the land. In side-quests it would be nice since some NPC's their stories will capture you and you know why you do that stuff, instead of reading every (boring) dialogue or book to get a grasp of what's going on. Cut-scenes would clarify why goblins are at a certain location and attacking those villages and cities, why you have a blackspirit folowing you what it's purpose is and if has a secret agenda or not, is that spirit evil or good for you who knows.... And yes there are people who will know the explanation for these questions, but frankly, as a player you shouldn't have to search for everything you want to know aka knowledge system...More and better dynamic events, look at Guild Wars 2 (and for some aspects to WoW and Diablo III) not the greatest game(s) in my opinion but what I did like about the game(s) is the fact that there were dynamic events on a massive scale. Not just some world bosses spawning twice a day or some whale ready to be hunted. But actually mobs attacking  villages, dosens of raids through high level area's, mob elite hunting parties on the road that "terrorize" the lands and you had to kill them to "free" the NPC's of the danger.MOST IMPORTANT: Tell a better story and make it more visible/highligted. Entice players in the BDO world to become the hero or villain what they want to be, help them to create their own story with unique expierences but try to maintain a red line in the story. The story should tell what the "black" desert is, the danger of the black spirits, where your class comes from, why your soul is linked with a black spirit, what goals you should try to achieve  (like killing a bad guys, evil mobs,...). The BDO devs will bring the players new domains/realms/area's but what is going on there, what is the story behind those new landmasse's, are there new bad guys (like sorcerers, necromancers, dragons) players need to kill to "complete" the story of those new area's? That being said, I hope the devs will notice this post and take their time to think about what's being said here. If they do, and they implement it in the game in a right way => then I am certain that players will bond more with the world; there will come a massive amount of new players to BDO because then there is finnaly an MMO who really differentiates itself from others by creating a gameworld where players can dive into and lose themselves, following a good story line instead of what other MMO's do ( => killing mobs = the entire game).

  11. Hey folks,
     
    Let's get right to it! BDO has lot's of content... Hiding somewhere behind lot's and lot's of boring NPC talk.  And everybody knows there is lore and story behind the setting of BDO but it just doesn't show, you have to actively search for it.

  12. Hallo zusammen. Ich bin neu hier und habe dieses Spiel noch nie gespielt. Ich wollte mir vorher die Anfänger-Version von 9.99 Euro kaufen und habe gesehen das ich nur noch 8 Franken auf meinem Konto hab. Ja ich bin Schweizer. Ich kann momentan nirgendwo Geld einzahlen und das würde erst morgen gehen. Ich möchte das Spiel aber unbedingt heute testen. Hab schon einige Tutorials und Gameplays gesehen und kann einfach nicht warten. Hat jemand von euch vielleicht einen Code zu verschenken? Das wär sowas von nett !!! Ich hab schon hier geschaut, aber dieser Beitrag ist alt und der letzte Post ist von März. Deswegen dachte ich, dieser Post ist sicherlich schon gestorben :" http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/29791-suchebieteder-7-tage-gästekey/  ".

    Danke und liebe Grüsse

  13. Hello to everyone on the BDO forums! 
    My name is Kyler. Im installing Black Desert Online as we speak and am 100% new to the game. I was aboard the hype train for this game leading up to launch, but took others negative feedback to heart and never even gave it a chance. Luckily, I watched a video on the game yesterday and the person speaking about the game made some really good points ( such as how BDO is its OWN experience and shouldnt be treated like other MMOS ) that really resonated with me. After all, some of my favorite MMOS were the older ones that required you to truly grind the game and put almost all your free time into it. 
    Here is some info on me and what im looking for in a guild
    Im 22 years old ( for any age restricted guilds ) and currently living in Texas ( CST time zone ). Im fortunate enough to almost completely work from home and therefore am almost always online. I have been playing MMOs for about 12 years now. I have been going from game to game since WoW changed completely, only playing some for a few months at a time. I hope to find a long term home here in BDO. 
    I would really like to be apart of a pretty active guild that has members who are on daily. Im a pretty social person so a guild with a Discord/TS server is a must for me. I have been in both very serious PvP & PvE guilds and plan on getting into the end game PvP. I respect role players so it is not an issue if people in the guild RP
    I hope to hear from some of you very soon! Thanks everyone. 
  14. Just curious how much AP we need to be effective? I'm at 130ap/250 dp and I have a hard time killing people in pvp. I have the combos down. What are you guys running at for AP/DP and how are you getting your AP up? All my gear is DUO and using a DUO Yuria atm, working on a liverto.
  15. Post on Discussion about a shovel in General

    By Keiso, posted
    Hello everyone, my name is Alfredo and my nickname is Keiso or ingame Keisosan, today i am in the desert in front of Sand Grain Bazar wearing my Gatherer's Clothes shoveling all this sand hoping to find some Black Crystal Shard because i'd like to enchant my Liverto Blade to PRI, hoping this twelfth try will be the successful one.
    Suddenly i thought, why the shovel hasn't durability? why i can't craft any type of it? is a shovel so much harder to craft than a fishing rope? and why i need to bring in by backpack 200 shovels while i have to handle only one fishing rope? looks like these shovels are made of the cheapest material in here, indeed i pay only 5 silver each, and it only weighs 0.10 LT, around 50 silver for LT, sounds very very cheap.
    Anyway i'm still here in the desert, i will ask the blacksmith if he can craft one or me for some reasonable price, goodbye hunters!

  17. So this is just an article I found and I thought it was kind of interesting, link below.
    http://2p.com/43143592_1/Why-people-are-quitting-Black-Desert-by-FifthSin.htm
  18. Greetings fellow gamers,
    My name is Phinix, and I have been an avid gamer since I was spending hours playing qBert, tanks, and Spiderman on the Atari 2600 as a tot, to Oregon Trail and Carmen Sandiego in elementary computer lab, and I've been gaming and modding MMO's for over a decade. You can see some of my work for other titles here Phinix Master Recipe List (links to Skyrim mods at the bottom).
    I am posting to let everyone that might see this know why I personally feel BDO is absolutely worth the minimal cost of entry.
    Like many I was skeptical at first, which is understandable as like many I've been burned on over-hyped games in the past that ended up uninstalled within the first week of actual play. I was concerned that it would be an overly PVP-focused game where the bulk of content was devoted to encouraging too-often unfair player ganking and griefing with major guilds baring content to huge areas for the rest of the population. I could not be happier to have been proven wrong!
    After exploring for myself what the game has to offer, I purchased the $49 version with the free mount and pet (I chose Hawk for my Tamer). I can say honestly I have absolutely ZERO buyer's remorse, and have enjoyed this outstanding title so much I made the purchase before my 7-day guest pass was even up (day 3).  
    Here's just a taste of what you can expect:
    OUTSTANDING crafting, trade, and market system.OUTSTANDING free action combat system.AMAZING graphics and SUPERB attention to detail.BEAUTIFUL soundtrack that enriches the experience.Mini-games (fishing, farming, horse taming) that are a lot of fun.AWESOME dynamic mount system.AFK tasks to advance your character while you work, surf, etc.Intelligent PVP design that discourages negative PVP while promoting the positive.There is so much more I could say but I wanted to just touch on a few of the things I really enjoyed.
    Practically everything you do advances your character in some way. Riding your horse around raises it's level and increases its stats (speed, health, etc.), and you can gradually learn skills which give it added functionality. You can tame horses as mounts. You can earn pack mule mounts from quests which give more storage and can be used to transport trade goods for profit. You can even buy or craft WAGONS of increasing size and quality for much more storage and the ability to attach two or even FOUR horses (and train them all at once).
    The whole crafting system is integrated into the way the game walks you through all the various systems it has to offer. There is literally something for everyone, and while it may seem a bit daunting at first, STICK WITH IT! I almost gave up after everything wasn't immediately handed to me but let me tell you, YOU CAN TRUST THIS GAME. The people that designed BDO deserve some major awards for the level of detail and intelligence that weaves these systems together. I am a programmer and I can tell you I was personally very impressed.
    The engine is also rock solid. No crashes, and the 64-bit client is so well optimized that you can easily run the game at absolute maximum settings with an i7 and a single NVIDIA GTX 780 card.
    It is honestly difficult for me to think of many negatives. I guess the fact that there is so much to learn, but to me that is part of the reward, and the way it is built into the game reinforces this. There is always something new to discover, and the learning process is rewarding and FUN! Even the PVP system is designed not to impede the quality of life of non-PVP players, as there is not only no real incentive to player kill PVE players but a strong counter-incentive (Karma and gear loss) NOT to do it. Plus in my time playing I have seen as many guilds devoted to being "guardians" and defending the PVE players as I have organized PVP guilds.
    Trust me when I say, if you enjoy MMO's, you will DEFINITELY enjoy BDO. Check the threads here and on Reddit giving away 7-day passes or ask around, and spend a week with it. If you truly give it a chance, and overcome your inherent MMO player instinct to give up at the first sign of a Google search needed, it may just turn out to be the best game you ever played.
    You will find that this (Dulfy.net) site will help a TON with the early learning curve.
    Happy gaming!

  19. Hey so I finally got the time to try out Black Desert online. And so far I like with its pros and cons. 
    I have learned myself to accept the age and gender lock, no matter how much I disagree with it.
     
    There are somethings I still wish that they will change in the very near future:
    -Cash shop gear should not grant stats or perks. (I feel this should have stayed free-asian-mmos exclusive)
    - Gear form the Cash Shop should cost alot less. (I know they want to earn money, but imo the prices are too high, and the quantity of gear too low, bring it down 75-50%, and it is not that I cannot afford it, I just do not see the reason for the hight pricetag, let alone the justification for it.)
    - Make more flashy/cool looking gear available via the actually game, via crafting and high lvl drops. (As I just startede this haven't bothered me so much, but I know it will. Let us have cool gear in-game, let us have visible helments (we can turn it off anyway))
    - Pets, make them drop from bosses.
     
    Okay these are my wishes. I know alot of people might disagree on this one, heck even the developers.
    But I hope they at least consider this or respond to it, why they have made their decision as it is. The best games I have tried, had an active team that listen to their players. I know they might be forced into stuff that they didn't want to do.
    Anyway the ideas about the cashshop is inspired by GuildWars2, which imo is one of the better cashshops. And they even got cool looking in-game armour (though they are few). So not like it isn't possible
    Also Just saw the interview with PvTwiggle, I think they dodged the Q on the cashshop.. I think they should try a 50% sale, just for a few days, just to see how much they would earn, for more reasonable prices.
     
  20. ...so does anyone have a 7-day pass they could let me use? I'm thinking about putting down money on the game but I need to be sure.
  21. As we all have likely seen the lack of a player to player trading system does nothing to stop the gold spammers, that however is beside the point, the extensive trading system and the fact that this is a multiplayer game are both suffering with the lack of a trading system this game plays more like a single player game without one and a lot of people i know personally are getting quite irritated at that fact as we all play mmos so we can play together as opposed to play alone or against each other.
     
    please allow for player to player trading, there are much better ways to deal with gold spammers then punishing every player for the transgressions of the few all you really have to do is have a chat filter that searches for certain words or phrases in chat. if it picks up on a non gold spammer all they need to do is dispute the mute but the point is having an auto mute feature for those who use particular words and or phrases isn't a bad thing, Hell if you want to take it to the extream block the posting of websites like have it scour for W W W. insert generic gold website here and have it instantly mute them.
    the trade and the community in this game will get so much better and it would certainly give you more of an incentive to role play as a particular profession as opposed to just being the creepy person who sits in their house all day doing god knows what while making then next cask of beer for your workers.
     
    anyway sorry for the structuring and the possible grammatical errors i really just wanted to get some points across.
  22. All my friends have been on this topic and many have left due to this. The game does not feel like its multiplayer. The sandbox aspect needs some very minor changes that will make all the difference. We need player to player trading so we can help each other on projects. We need to be able to share craft stations in each others houses (party members) or theres no reason to visit one anothers house. We need to be able to share inventory spaces on our wagons, ships, horses, etc for when we are out farming as friends. Would be nice to share a horse or have others ride on wagon. I heard two people on a horse was a skill later learned so thats nice. Anyhoo... soo
    These things are really basic staples of any mmo and do not need to be recreated in some new way. These things we need in order to feel like our friends are in this with us other than grinding mobs or pvp.
    I want to be working on a project and be able to tell some friends im short on some wood and have them ride out with a wagon to chop some down. Load it all on one wagon or horse and bring to my house then all friends unload it and start breaking it down or loading the stations while others go to fetch other things. Its silly every player must make their own things and theres no sharing or contributing to one anothers goals. Archeage did many things wrong but the feeling of a group of players all pitching in to make a warship or guild house was something truly fun. Solo goals drive a wedge between your friends you came to play with. Ive no reason what so ever to adventure with my girl in this game. And when she says i just need "blank" and im all "Oh i have some of those come get em...." Oh i forgot i cannot help you with anything. Get it yourself and im going back to what i was doing all alone." Sad game.
  23. Post on NextGEN MMO in General

    By Dagi, posted
    Ok, what does this game give to players what we have not yet seen? I see it is in the end as same as any other MMO theme park out there. Take quest, kill monsters, kill animals and spam keys. Now in new features that you don't need to run as its botted for you. Animations are very Asian, in fact they are so Asian that you can't see anything as basic attacks are over 9000!
    So what's the thing here? I would say this game goes free to play in 6 months but as yes, its already free to pay.. play. 
  24. Hello,
    So I understand the servers for NA and the like are hosted on European servers and as such, I've read the list of restricted servers. This might be a long shot but I would really love it if the international version of the game was supported for those of us living in south america. Most MMOs tend to support our countries and there are a lot of faithful gamers who I am sure would love to invest in a title like this if allowed to do so, we just need the possibilty to be open.
     
    Again, I am not sure how hard it is to realize this but i figured I would make the post anyway. Feel free to comment with suggestions or feedback, please be constructive
