  1. Post on Willingtons in Guild Recruitment

    By Thorquild, posted
    I started a new guild, and i'm now looking for new members in any level. If you're looking to join go to Calpheon.
  2. My friend and I have recently started playing BDO and we are looking for a PVE guild who will take us both.
    we have had fun with BDO but are looking for others to play with.
    I am a  Witch and he is a Dark knight
    my name in game is Adagrace Family name: LazyMantis

  3. Hi guys ! My friend an I made a guild name RedFrizz .   We are currently only 2 but i hope we could find people to play with : precisely we want to do Guild missions  .  
    Hope to see you IG with us !!!   RedFrizz
  4. Hello Everyone~
    Recently my friend had started playing BDO which ended up pulling me back in. We had decided to create a guild and try to do some fun PvE based things like guild missions and summoning bosses to hunt. However, a lot of the things require more than 3 people and it has been somewhat hard making any friends in game. People have not been as talkative as I've seen in other MMO's.
    We are still somewhat new to things seeing as to I had left the game for a while and am getting back into it, and he is brand new.
    It would be great if there were any players that want to join our guild to hunt with us and also teach us a bit more about the game and how some things work.
    As long as you are active and friendly, that's all that matters. All levels are welcome.
    For those who enjoy PvP, we do like dueling daily to make sure we are slightly prepared in case we get attacked anywhere and to try out our skills.
    Thank you all for your time and I hope to get a chance to meet new people. ^^

  5. Any spare trial codes around ? I would like to try the game before buying it. I would be happy if some1 can share a code with me.
  6. A few weeks ago certain skills were datamined by https://twitter.com/formica_ru for a new fighter class that supposedly uses gauntlets as a weapon.
    The skill list list: i.imgur.com/MS5KMvC.png    <- This data can also be found on Bdfoundry
    4 hours ago (2nd of march) some new skills were datamined for this class: http://imgur.com/GsiP4KW !
    Have fun reading up on them!
  7. Hi all,
     
    I am a new player. I created a character when the game was released, but haven't really touched the game until now. I have come back to find about 90mil silver sitting in my mail.
     
    Now, I'm wondering what would be the optimal gear to spend this on? Should I go all out and buy the most powerful weapon I can afford, and how does consideration of an awakening weapon factor in? Assuming I plan to use my awakening weapon 90% of the time as soon as I reach level 56. Would I want to instead get the best awakening weapon I can afford, or would I want some kind of middle ground? (I'm not sure exactly how far my 90mil will take me here)
     
    Or, should I spend the money on a combination of +10/+15 armor and weapons?
     
    Looking for any suggestions as to what would be the best idea. Thanks!
  8. So i've had the game since it's been out, but I haven't been able to actually play it till this past weekend...(I know). Technically, I'm still new to the game, and I have no idea what I am doing, I'm just doing quests at the moment and buying furniture in the marketplace, but I want to get...I guess...somewhere? If that makes sense? Like I want to explore and stuff and like go to new places...Does anyone have tips for me? I have a horse and a bird (that I don't use since I have no idea how to craft food there...)
  9. 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!

  12. I know that we're already getting a new gryphon helmet, but i wanted just to point out, that the karanda plume ornament has so much potential because of the cool looks, would like to see it as an outfit or as an armor part, or atleast in the future make some more armors/outfits that are more assassin like(something like this (Lord's Blade Ciaran ) http://static.fjcdn.com/pictures/Dark+souls+lore+lord+s+blade+ciaran+lord+s+blade+ciaran+is_4314ff_5476043.jpg )- a porcelain mask, it might not be the best example but i consider it good enough.
    EDIT: http://bddatabase.net/us/item/3038/ Picture of the Karanda Plume Ornament is in the screens section.

  16. Hello all,
    Sorry if this information is posted elsewhere, I'm having issues navigating this site. I just got the news that BDO has a 7 day trial going on and I would LOVE to try this game out, honestly. I signed up with the site and verified my account but from there I didn't see any prompts for a client download or anything of the sort, so I'm at a loss as to what to do from here. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated! 
    Thanks in advance.
  17. So, Im returning to the game coming from Guild Wars 2 (GW2). In GW2 the armor and choice of what you typically want is based on your build, where things are pretty conventional and simplified. When I came back I was entirely confused on what to do. Im about 51 and im still using the gear I got from the black spirit quests, thinking that was a good idea. But as im trying to grind on some Sausans im getting kicked from parties because my AP and gear arent really up to par I guess. How do you chose which gear set or sets and weapon that you use? Im not really sure what im looking for. 
  18. The only reason why its so hard for Me to get into this game is because there is no class I would like to play. The Dark Knight does look something I would love to play, but I don't like to play as a Female, just to gay-ish (hehehe). Not to mention, one of the coolest classes, like Archer and Sorcerer. are Females and doesn't have Male version. I know that BDO has the most beautiful Ladies, but still, make some room for Man!
  19. Accepting players who are new to BDO, don't know the ropes and need some advice. Would appreciate it if you decided to stay.
  20. Hi, i'm soon getting my awakening yay,
    but now for my question if i grind using only! my awakening wep does the durability of my main weapon also go down .
    Cuz my main wep has 50 dura so say  can i grind till 1/50 using only "Axe" skills then proceed to  use 100/100 dura  awakening  wep to 1/100?
    Or does it go down at the same time .

    Sorry if its a lil confusing, my english isnt that great .
    thanks whoever can help me.

  21. Hi everything is on this post posted on general by mistake
  22. My friends and I have been looking at this game recently and are thinking about getting it. We would most likely just play together with questing and grinding and will probably not touch PvP all that much. So my question is: What is a good class for PvE and maybe also do some classes work better with others? There will be at least 3 of us.
    Thanks!
  23. I played around launch, and for a month or so, didn't get too deep, other things came up, but I want to start up again.  I liked a lot about the game, and there were some issues, that I want to know if they got fixed, if not, then I'll just have to play around them.
    1. My main was a defense heavy sword and shield warrior, and my alt was a wizard.  I was told(and could see evidence by like level 20ish) that attack trump defense is all ways, and for every point you take of def over att, is just weakening your char, especially for pvp.  then i was told that melee is mostly worthless in pve, and to a point pvp as range just has more survivabilty.  I saw this coming to a point, but I could see that ranged classes seemed to get more movement options then melee, which meant they couldn't keep up.  Is all this still true, was this just lunch naivety, have the new classes helped, are tanks viable.
    2. Aside from just keep going forward, and back gear x y and z, and upgrade, progression seemed very lacking.  I seem to remember no real end game content (though not many max levels at that time) and I saw that naval combat or something happened? so what are some of the areas players are actively playing these days, and what of it is playable at a wider level range(not just endgame)
    3. As the game just launched when i started, the growing pains were a thing, not as bad as some games.  Have things settled, how hard is it to get into a guild that is fairly active, but not super strict, and can a guild like that realistically do stuff in the global space, with the node wars and such.
     
    Anything else that you think a returning and/or mostly still new player would find interesting, or helpful, to get the most out of time, without going crazy with detail(pitfalls to avoid and such) are welcome as well.
     
     
  24. Wasteland is a small social guild that is looking for new members, if you are new to BDO You are still welcome but ofc are oldtimers welcome too.

  25. Dear BlackDesert Devs,
    @GM_Huego
    @GM_Tokaji
    @PM_Jouska
    (Sorry for tagging u guys, but it menth allot to me & fellow players if this would be read, dont take the funny words too serieusly).
    (like i said not trying to offend anyone). (thankyou for reading  ).
    First of all sorry for my bad english. im dutch but il give it my best to explain it as good as i can in english. i dont know if u guys can do anything becaose something in my mind is telling me all u guys here in europe get are the patches from korean and just patch that shit and role there crap out. anyway here are my idea's and what i really dislike & a ton of other players agree with, if u dont beleave it start a poll and be surprised.
     
    1. We cant trade anything with someone really litterely nothing. you are so damn restricted that the entire trade system is just a flaw. (sorry but its true).
    2. This game is soooo freaking beautiful. YET YOU LEVEL from 1-55 Withoud even getting different kinds of outfits?? LIKE T -----.... sorry but this is a really bad thing. 
    (oh p.s i already bouth new clothes from the store but i still think there is room for moreeeeeeeeeeeee <-- Really more). 
    3. The Guild system is pretty restricted aswell ive never meth an mmo where i couldnt put money into the guild bank but hello here is black desert. (spits you right in the face when u beleave u have a free will). 
    4. I Really Like RolePlay and i have nothing against German people but... sad but true, they use the RolePlay chat like its a German Flag chat. & i can understand german language and they only troll people inside it... (wish on daily basis people from all arround the corner get really pissed on that part & gets some chat fights on.... wish is funny at first but when u come from mmo's like -> Blade & Soul -> World of Warcraft -> Aion -> Star wars the old republic its a pain to see how roleplay is done inside such a beautiful mmo like black desert).
    5. I understand this game is PvP based and thats how it should be. but U guys could make more caves deeper story lines etc. (im not pointing out that this is a reason id leave but, im pointing at this is something i as a person really love in a mmorgh story line with dungeons & raids similar to Blade&soul & World of warcraft). 
    6. This Devs from BlackDesert really seem careless. (no offense). but i have read allot of complains & questions and dont get me wrong, i know u guys are bussy. but how can u call this a community when there is noOne Explaining they listened or they are listening or they are working on something. or almost never responding to anything. idk maybe its just me but.. 
    7. Today i wanted to login and it said maintence, Wish is fine i mean it was fortold and is great. but i have never seen a prepd patch wish diddent say whats coming. almost looks like hey guys where patching but we gotta see whats inside first before u guys can see it...  sorry but thats the feel kappa..
    8. Again i wanna point out to different kinds of armor - clothing - Weapons etc. id rather have u guys look into making new weapons armor outfits and that shit then making new hair styles... Coase this big cannon game called black desert has so many features other mmorpg havent yet. the simplest things other mmo have.. this game hassent. 
    MOST IMPORTAND OUT OF EVERYTHING:
    Lets talk about Player interaction. The world of black desert really is amazing, yet i have a feeling and not only me ive spoken to allot of players and asked arround even watched youtube vids about the streamers touths & idea's. and yet all of them said the same thing over and over. this game feels like a single player game. so lets call it Black Desert instead of "Black Desert - Online". Coase.. Online in the past was a meaning where Online stood for Connected with friends  -> yet i feel like im only connected to the world here.. i love the world and the mobs i really do. but somethimes i wanna talk to someone. or have fun with them. and the only interaction im getting is the Roleplay chat with the German flag Waving arround (joke). but its like that. but lets focus on this. sure it would be hard to change gamestyle playment but thats not what im pointing at. what im pointing at is the interaction between players. a way to get players more together. to make sure players interacht with eachother.. u know what i mean right..  Somebody asked me hey can u share that quest... from the things ive seen in this game i dont even know even on this moment i dont now if this is possible. but i am assuming it just issent possible.
     
    IF I OFFENDED ANY OF U IM REALLY SORRY, IM JUST BEING HONNEST ABOUT EVERYTHING IM EXPERIENCING. 
    Good points about black desert
    1. Beautiful graphics
    2. Awesome Combat
    3. Interaction with The world -> (NOT WITH PLAYERS). <- i mean WORLD
     
    Bad points about black desert.
    Well check out the list up above. gave plenty.
     
    Kind regards,
