  2. Greetings everyone, let's start a little story. The name of the story is in the title, and I'll add on my own personal twist from the story told at the end. 
    In a game known as Black Desert Online, the gameplay is high paced and skill dependent (Excluding the periodic server issues and desync that might occur.) It is enjoyable with a vast world to explore. In this world though, the GM's are limited in what they might do. These GM's care for the players that they play their game, and one day, the GM's found out that quite a bit of players were exploiting! Now not all of the players in the area were exploiting, there were quite a few who would risk their lives to go out into the barren desert and start digging in hopes that they might obtain a rare black crystal shard! Of either Hard or sharp, they likely cared not, but the sight of one was joyous indeed. Then, came the exploiters. These exploiters filled their inventory with junk, and left a hard shard and a sharp shard as a placeholder. They would then stock up on their shovels, and then shovel away at the desert! Though it was not the Vanadium, or the various gems and crystals that lie under the sands! It was the black crystal shards that were their only goal. Most of these brave adventurers were after the same thing, but the exploiters did it for specific reasons, since they would not lose energy until they got a black crystal shard! Most of these exploiters would go and sell the shards that they obtained on the market and reap the profits of their work! Though the caring GM's heard of these exploiters and their deviousness, and lied down the hammer upon them. They fixed the problem within the world and got rid of the evil adventurers. 
    However, as time went on the faithful adventurers learned of how even the exploiters who sold the rare gems on the marketplace were contributing in their own way, despite doing it to satisfy their own greed. As time grew further on after the exploiters were banished from the game, the adventurers would go to their favorite marketplace Shai and find that the marketplace was fresh out of stock of either of the black crystal shards, and even the stones that they would be turned into! The adventurers would grieve that the ability to strengthen their gear would slow because of the lack of these rare shards being available and cheap to them like they once were. Now the poor Shai are flooded with requests for back-ordering (Preordering) on these shards and adventurers throwing their money at them so they might get the chance at getting these rarities to further advance themselves, now that the mighty drought of the memory fragments is over. But we go from lacking in one, to lacking in another preventing these mighty adventurers from advancing and catching up to their predecessors. You can still hear some adventurers saying: "Ah I would not even mind if the exploiters were still around, at least there were shards on the marketplace!" The Kind GM's have wanted the adventurers to advance and have been throwing events to help so, but even doing so has its difficulties in performing the task that is trying to be done. 
    Now for the suggestion of the story-teller. If we are lacking in the black crystal shards, I suggest a way to not game-breakingly fix this problem but to ease the people back into a time of where they are no longer afraid to upgrade armor, or perhaps upgrade other armor to sell for a profit! The adventurers of this world possess workers that run to the very lengths of what is known to gather resources without rest and only at the cost of some beer. Though only having beer is probably quite unhealthy, but it seems to work for them. My suggestion is, allow these workers the chance to obtain such rarities as the Hard or sharp black crystal shards, the same as the chance that adventurers do! It would give even more reason for the adventurers to hire workers and it would give the adventurers the prices that they most desire! The amount of shards gained would not be tremendous though, as it is likely an adventurer would obtain around one to two a day due to the chances of getting one at all. The adventurers who are low on silver would be able to sell the items, thus giving them availability on the marketplace, and those who have some extra spares are able to buy. The first rule of economics is that an economy flourishes when money is circulating! And the adventurers who wish to upgrade their armor are able to save the ones that they own, allowing them to use their energy for talking to that suspicious looking man in dark clothing who will only make his services available from 10 PM to 7 AM to get the mighty legendary armor of their dreams that come from mythological level creatures that seem to always return after a certain amount of time just to be killed by the adventurers of the world. How this guy got a hold of such things is beyond me, but regardless!
    This method I feel is a balanced way to assist North America, or perhaps any of the other servers, to further upgrade their armors and weapons while not breaking the game of its current mechanics, along with helping the market stabilize and promoting game advancement! Thank you for your patience and for listening to the story!

  5. Post on Changing server in General

    By FrostyShrooms, posted
    This has probably been spoken of, but does anyone know if, in the future, we are going to be able to transfer our characters to a different server. I would like to be on the EU server as I live in the Netherlands. When I first created a character I was in the EU server and when I logged back on, my character was gone and so I created another one. However, the new character that I created was now on the North American server and I guess Im stuck there until they implement an option to transfer characters to different servers.
  6. Hello!
    After contacting your costumer support about two weeks ago and then being redirected to another department I have yet to get a response from, I'll ask again here for some help.
    I understand that I made a mistake when I first started out playing this game, but I am an active player that have put quite a bit of cash into my account and I hope that I can get some assistance in my issue.
    So when I started out playing Black Desert Online about a week after launch, I downloaded the client and began playing. I grinded my way to 50 on a warrior, and I bought both pets and a costume for him. I joined a guild late, and began playing with them. At this point I was under the impression that I was playing in Europe (I shut off channel chat because of all the bots and arguing players early on). After playing with the guys in my guild for a while, it came to my attention that I was playing on North American servers. I didnt realize why my PvP-life wasn't going as I hoped and I found out that I had roughly 175-200 ping. I played up another character after this point, thinking that they hadn't released the game in Europe yet - but then I found out I could change through the cogwheel on the client. Testing it out on Europe, I found that I had 20 ping and my game experience increased in value. 
    My issue though, is that I have invested a lot of money into my characters on NA, as well as time. When I spoke to a GM, he wasn't too interested in hearing my plea and turned me down without really showing interest in my dilemma. I want to support this game, and I want to see it succeed for sure - that's why I still invest my money in the Pearl Store on EU having changed over.
    I have about 3000 unused pearls in NA at this moment in time, as well as multiple pets, costumes and inventory space/weight unlocked. I understand that it will be difficult to move my characters from NA to Europe, and I understand that I might not get my costumes refunded or moved either. While I don't love that, I'm fine with it if I can at least get something with me. At the very least my unused pearls.
    I really hope that this message isn't also ignored like my last e-mail.
    I would also like to thank you guys for the amazing job you are doing with this game, and I hope to be an active player throughout it's lifespan. Thank you in advance.
  7. Does UNO have an unofficially designated RP Channel?
    That said, is there any word if the developers of North America plan on creating an RP-oriented server?

    —Thanks ahead of time.
  8. After a large, explaining message I created and sent to the moderators of the Black Desert Roleplayers site, (Unsure if this was the deciding factor, or not) they decided to discuss and add two new forum threads for the other servers outside of Jordine (EU) and Orwen (NA) for Roleplayers like ourselves! This is a major help to the people who either chose a server first, or bought and received all their items on another server, and are unwilling to change to the other server (besides that, it's usually full of lag). You can find them by clicking FORUMS, and going down past the two main servers. Now, you can look in more places than one for roleplay on your server, and channel! I hope this keeps everyone informed, and together! A big thanks for Sorora for answering my application within a timely manner, and with a respectful tone!
    For the Delphe Knights!
    Elion Bless.

  10. Since I have no idea how your team is currently dealing with these spammers and how these spammers are spamming with their bot software. I will make a number of assumptions here and suggest a solution, if your team already have not tried this and failed.
    I will assume these spammers have hacked and modified your installation files to bypass your protections and are directly submitting global messages across all server chats.
    With this in mind, why don't you work on the server to filter out any messages containing ".com", ".org", ".co.xx", albeit, all web url string patterns (this includes all bizarre workaround string patterns like "c.o.m", etc.)?
    I think denying any string submission from the server side that contains the characters, 'c', 'o', 'm' in order, with or without any non-alphabetic/special characters in between and by side could be enough. I won't leave out that any further continuous work has to be done to deal against these guys who may come out with more creative method, but I think this will at least deter their activity to some point.
    Although, this suggestion can impose extra burden on your server and some inconvenience for everyone. As a player in the game. I think, all of us, except these goldsellers, will be more happy to have a clean chat box without spammers than be unhappy by being restricted on url sharing over the game chat.
    I'm Korean grown in US but still quiet fluent in the native language, and a software developer myself with both front-end and back-end development experience for both desktop, mobile, web, bot software, hacking/cracking applications (but I'm strongly against doing this kind of rogue activity on any networked game). If you have any questions regarding this suggestion, especially if you need a sample code for your server, I can volunteer specifically for this task.
    I'm seriously hating these guys now whoever behind these spamming bots as they are occupying almost 90% of chats as of time of this writing and increasingly becoming contagious and worse, turning everybody's gaming experience to miserable one, so I hope this is treated as soon as possible.

  11. So to get right down to it my buds and I have decided to join a guild, any guild, to gain some experience in how things work the way they work. The three stooges, us, are based in ORWEN the land of the roleplayers, or so I read somewhere but strangely haven't seen a lot of roleplaying, and usually reside in Mediah O2 where it's quiet and nifty. My toons name is HEXTRIUS_DECIMUS (Whuping is my family name) and the other two goes by WHINETHEPOO and STELLARDMP. (I forgot their toons name so I just gave their family name).

    Essentially what we're looking for is guilds that are semi-hardcore and really really and I mean REALLY relaxed. I personally don't mind hardcore guilds, but I'm not a hardcore MMORPG type of guy, but my concern is with the other two. A PVX guild falls into our prospects as well as future GvG and stuff. We'd like to experience everything at least once.

    We're all within' our 30+ levels. Two Warriors and One Valk.

    That's pretty much everything I can think of at 2 in the morning. I'll prob update later or something.

    P.S. the guild must have at least a large abundance of swag. If ya'll have that. We cool.


    EDIT: Oh almost forgot. I'm a cool guy. Everyone in Mediah says so. (Lil bit of Narcissism) 

  12. When are we going to start seeing (if at all) the Mervs dye palette in our north american shops? Yes I know the dyes get removed after the duration but it's still a great system to buy if you want to try out all the dyes for a while. 
  13. first day of playing (3-3-2016) everything is normal i played for about 3 to 4 hours.  next day i try to conect it conects to north america. so wen i go to the setings and change it to europe i have to login again. after i logged in it stil seas north america and it keeps at north america every time. is this a game bug or something else? and can somebody help me fix it?

    The Berzerkerz Community is a multi-gaming Community that started back in 2014 and now has grown onto a whole new level. At the moment, we have been few in number because of college and other activities that take time away from gaming. However, we are starting to make new teams for our group. There are only a few requirements before you can be considered a part of the team.

    What I would like out of this?  I would like to have the same exact group that I once played with. That fun, energetic, and cooperative vibe that I got not only from the leaders who set the example, but from the members that followed that example.

    Tome of Whispers and Echoes - Chapter 13: The Unseen Prophecy

    Today started out like any other day you've had over the past year. You still look at your left palm every morning when you wake out of habit. You don't even notice you doing it these days. You get up and get ready to go about your day as you're now accustomed to.
    Then, in the middle of the day your worst fears (or joys) are realized.  Your hand tingles. You slowly turn your hand to see The Brand: an invisible, mana-infused tattoo only visible when The Unseen Hand has need of you. Its design and the hue it gives off are connected to members of The Unseen Hand you must answer to.
    You look up and around, trying to catch a glimpse of them. You know they are watching you. 
    They're always watching….

    Eternus is a roleplay guild unlike any other. More than just roleplay, we consider ourselves a storytelling guild. We have rich and engaging characters and stories that make up our roster. We're one community united like a family! Under the leadership of our Community Leader ((OOC)) and The Shadō ((IC)) we have a flourishing narrative that weaves in the characters of our members. From merchants to criminals, soldiers to mercenaries, powerful leaders to regular citizens, nothing is beyond the reach of The Unseen Hand. Our goal is to tell epic and everyday tales of an ensemble cast made up by our members. 
    Come, join the story!

    To join Eternus, one must submit their character to the will of The Unseen Hand. Each character carries with them a brand on their left palm. This provides both a source of communication and a level of control. Be sure to check out our website and read our Code of Conduct before applying to the guild.
    Community Manager: Toxa
    Black Desert Branch Leader: Zason
    Black Desert Officers: Aeternita, Laukus, and Aelwyn 

    The Unseen Hand
    The Shadō - The enigmatic leader(s) and final decision maker(s). ((BDO Branch Leader))
    Anemoi - An extension of the will of The Shadō. They enact The Shadō’s plans while having freedom on how they do it. They are able to have their own projects so long as they do not conflict with one another. ((Officers))
    Faceless - Trusted by the Anemoi, they deliver orders or missions to The Branded and act as a general go-between. ((Veteran Members))
    The Branded - Those tied to The Unseen Hand are marked with a brand and have submitted themselves (willingly or unwillingly) to the will of The Shadō. ((Veteran Members)) 
    Associates - Those just coming into contact with The Unseen Hand and not yet branded. Characters become Associates usually by coming into regular contact with The Branded. They have yet to prove themselves to become truly weaved into the ongoing narrative… for now. ((New Members))

    A Storytelling Guild?
    The concept came out of the idea of having a dynamic "Storytelling" guild that has a place for all kinds of character types. Peasants and Warriors. Merchants and Criminals. The glue that connects these various types and compels the story forward is The Unseen Hand (think Dungeon Master). As the story unfolds, any character could rise or fall, even the Anemoi could be exposed and The Unseen Hand destroyed. Major shifts such as this would be highly unlikely but not impossible. So, the version of Eternus you may join today might evolve into something completely different in the future with what the characters bring to the story.
    So, there’s a difference between a “Storytelling Guild” and an “RP Guild”?
    Absolutely! Your standard RP guild provides a theme and basic story and usually lets the characters do what they please. The members usually focus on their individual stories or small group tales. These are great, but we wanted to try something different. As a storytelling guild we focus on an overarching narrative that is told through an ensemble of characters. Based on how the characters are connected, they may be placed in situations they would not normally put themselves in. The Unseen Hand may send them on a mission or compel them to do something that they disagree with. How they complete said task is still up to them but they must obey. With that said, our goal is not to ruin the fun for anyone and to offer a variety of RP opportunities connected to an ongoing story. Any seriously dark or permanent consequences are usually brought up beforehand and there are consequences for IC actions.
    What’s this about a brand?
    The Brand is a way to mark those who belong to The Unseen Hand. It’s a magically infused tattoo on the left palm, invisible to the naked eye. When magic is focused through the circuits, it appears with the color associated with which Anemoi they are bound to. These brands can be activated by anyone who is marked with a controlling brand (The Anemoi and The Shadō). The brand will tingle when near other branded individuals. Those branded are strongly compelled to obey and keep anything they know about The Unseen Hand to themselves.
    What kind of theme is the guild?
    Eternus is a mature (18+) guild. Our theme in BDO is dark but not specifically evil. We will exist more in the morally gray area. Goody two shoes and evil bastards are more fringe than the norm.
    How do I increase my rank?
    To go from Associate ((New Member)) to The Branded ((Veteran Member)) you must show that you are invested in Eternus and the ongoing narrative by being active and contributing to roleplay on a regular basis. While we understand that RL takes priority we do expect activity. Other ranks will be hand chosen and as needed. To say it another way, advancement requires both IC and OOC involvement and activity.
    What is this “Tome”?
    The Tome of Whispers and Echoes is a large book containing all of the secrets of The Unseen Hand. Its pages are inscribed with the same ink used in The Brand, and its pages have been scattered across the continent. This will play as a basis for guild missions (to give IC reasons for OOC tasks), and gradually reveal more in-depth information about The Unseen Hand and guild lore.
    What if I don’t wanna obey?
    In Character actions have In Character consequences. Disobeying The Unseen Hand is not to be taken lightly and punishments can be severe. Since we are focused on weaving an exciting narrative, we expect all members to understand and agree that they must contribute to the overall narrative. Basically, if you are always trying to disobey, you’re ruining the story and experience for everyone else. You will be warned but if negative actions continue, there may be serious IC and OOC consequences. That said, we want to create an environment where all member, characters and their personal stories can flow into each other and allow for exciting adventures and fun.
    Can I be a part of RP events or do content with Eternus without joining?
    From time to time we will do events with other guilds and definitely seek to roleplay with others in the community however when we do content or storytelling it will primarily be with guild members only. It isn’t a matter of elitism, more of an issue of putting our members first and focusing our time and resources to advance the guild and weave an epic tale with a regular cast of characters.
    This all sounds interesting.  How do I know if it’s something for me?
    If you’ve ever enjoyed playing D&D with a Dungeon Master, love having your characters challenged in unexpected ways, thrilled with the “gray areas” of a character’s life and decisions, excited about participating in an ensemble cast in an epic ongoing narrative, bringing YOUR character’s story together with others’ to create a unique story, then we have a place for you!

  18. I get a better response time on the Korean server than the current setup for CBT2 which I assume is in San Jose. Pvping on the east coast is practically impossible when enemies are disappearing and reappearing and cutting frames because of ping lag. Completely ridiculous that it's easier for me to pvp on a server on the other side of the world than on this. Please give us an east coast server or at least a Midwest FFS.
  19. Post on EU -> NA in General

    By Cote Danke, posted
    I'm interested in playing this game so I've been doing some research and have been unable to discover if they plan on having server transfers.
    I'm currently living in EU for the next year but I plan on moving back to NA, will I be able to bring my character or will it be like WoW where a EU character must be on a EU account and vice versa.
    Any help is very appreciated

    Focus: PvP/Siege Heavy/Hard Core Open World/ Guild vs. Guild
    An Introduction to Foo:
    Foo is one of the most well established guilds in the gaming community. From our beginnings in Subspace, in the early 90’s, to our most recent conquests in GW2, Foo has been in every major game released during the past few decades. Among our most involved and dominated games are Star War Galaxies, Asheron’s Call, Guild Wars 2, World of Warcraft and so much more. 
    Foo not only boasts a variety of gaming experiences but a large and diverse member population. We are proud to have many members who enjoy every aspect of an MMO. Such diversity within our community is something Foo places extremely high value on. While fostering such a diverse and experienced gaming community, Foo has created life-long friendships, marriages, babies and probably some really bad porn by some of those people.
    Our community is also proud to boast our base of operations, http://www.fooguild.com/. With over 370 members, and expecting 100 more to join for BDO, our guild website is a haven for members to collaborate; sharing ideas, thoughts, likes and dislikes within the gaming community and beyond. 
    Our member time zones are as diverse as our member population. Foobies stretch from Alaska (our fearless guild leader) to all the way Europe. Most Foobies are currently within the US central time zone. 
    Foo has also been active on the RU and KOR servers for the past few months in preparation for the NA launch.
    How we run our show:
    Foo’s leadership feels little need for a heavy hand when it comes to administration. We have been operating this way a long time, learning along the way how best to spot and boot the turds quickly from our ranks. Foo has a policy to stay drama free and focused on enjoying the gaming and community experience. That being said, Foo also has a rich history of being among the best in every game we play. Whether we are crafting, PvPing, raiding, making alliances or enemies, Foobies know when it is business time comms clear and focus on the task at hand is paramount. 
    Foo employs the use of Discord (https://discord.gg/0nw8kFdZVmk1Gdox) as our primary comms. Whilst on comms we encourage all members to interact and socialize. That being said, when it comes down to business Foo generally has 1 or 2 persons giving direction, while the troops actively listen and carry out their jobs.
    Participation on our website is critical to our community members. Our guild forums support Tapatalk, so you can interact and be involved even when you are on the go. Now that fancy....
    Foo looks forward to seeing you in BDO, hopefully within our ranks or standing by our side, and if not...under the heels of our boots. 
    What we are looking for:
    • People in the age group 25-50 typically work out best in our community.
    • Ex-Military folks, we have a lot of them, and they integrate well.
    • People who aren't too hardcore. Most of us have jobs, babies, wives, husbands and lives.
    • People who don't blabber on coms. We don't mind chatter, but we don't want to hear one person all night.

    Focus: Castle Sieges and GvG Warfare
    Website: www.risenguild.org
    Age Requirement: 18+
    VoIP: ts.risenguild.org
    On behalf of the guild, I am proud to present to you… Risen. This guild is founded by multiple core experienced members of our old Korean guild Gatekeeper. Our ranks include Eponym (co-founder of GK), Zoxea (One of the first in CBT1 to 50 & Ex-Officer), Snuggles (Ex-Officer), Demi (Ex-Officer), Crystalie (Ex-Officer), Otoudan (Ex-Officer), along with multiple other familiar faces like Joao/Matsukaze, AJ, Reinhertz and Nippa. Joining us are 40+ experienced KR players from notable guilds who have geared, sieged, and reached 55+. We have the knowledge, skill, and patience needed to put together guides and teach our new members everything they need to know to be best prepared for what's to come. 
    Guild Expectations:
    Be active, participate, and be willing to constantly improve.
    Be mature, be friendly, remain open-minded, have thick skin.
    Value and respect fellow players.
    We expect every member to attend castle sieges!
    Note that the members who put this guild together are full-time professional adults with families, friends, and other real life commitments/responsibilities. Our aim is to find committed people who already have a great deal of confidence in their PvP abilities; however, we do not expect this game to become “life”.
    Gaming is our passion and a welcoming, entertaining environment with camaraderie is what we will provide. We plan on a heavy guild event calendar so when our members are online, we have something planned for them in cooperation with the guild.  
    Guild Philosophy:
    Our overall enjoyment of the online gaming experience is amplified by the company we keep, to the point where it trumps the game’s content itself. Risen is dedicated to building a guild around the quality of players we invite. In fact, we see ourselves in the top tiered PvP ranks and intend to enter all PvP engagements with respect and common decency, and the utmost conviction towards victory.
    Risen members are players who seek to explore the edges of their ability and perform beyond them. Steady progression and skill improvement are important and work in parallel to community relations. Being skillful is not license to put others down, rather it pushes us to be a leader among peers and steer them toward the same achievements we have achieved.
    Risen’s Main Focus:
    Activity: Since Risen began recruiting, all members have been actively playing games together and getting to know one another on the guild forum/Teamspeak. There are no strangers here, and we openly welcome new members.
    Personality: We have lots of it; the members are mature, but laid-back with a thirst for prominent PvP achievement.
    Community: We do not carry elitist attitudes; our goals are shared with peer groups, and we expect to share our determination throughout the server we roll on.
    Discipline: We are organized and precise with our actions in-game. The word "zerg" is not in our strategic vocabulary.
       -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------AS A NOTE - ON MARCH 5 THERE WILL BE CHECK INS FOR OPEN SLOTS. After filling out an application here: http://www.risenguild.org/recruitment.htmlJoin us in TS and get to know everyone! The TS3 server is ts.risenguild.org with no password.Applicant Interviews are done everyday between 1800 EST - 2200 EST. 



    GvG Siege Domination, PvP the best K/D ratio


    Get Wrecked is currently recruiting for the North American release and Practice Mode on the Korean servers of Black Desert Online. We currently have players with MMO Experience from games as old as Runescape to ones as new as Final Fantasy XIV. We are seeking players interested in dominating the landscape of Black Desert. This includes mostly hardcore players but we do have needs for some casual players as well. When we say dominating the landscape we mean controlling whole sections of the map. Having the Best K/D ration in personal and team PvP, and getting to and destroying the world bosses before anyone else to acquire the drops necessary to stay using the top tier of gear. We will have siege team slots open to players based on skill, contribution, and availability. For players interested in just the PvE aspect of the game you can still contribute to the guild through guild missions and supplying the guild with items it needs, you will be compensated of course. Guild events will be present to blow off some steam in-between steamrolling other guilds.



    Physical Requirements:

    1.     Have Teamspeak3 Access. (talking is not required but being able to listen is)

    2.     Have Thick Skin and be mature. Members of all ages are welcome, however be advised it tends to get both very adult and raunchy in our channels quite often when not actively participating in something that requires coordination. You may get made fun of for something, laugh it off and move on, we may rag on you often but we still love you.

    3.     Be honest. If you do have an issue with someone talk it out or speak with a guild officer and we can get it resolved. Don’t blind leave over a misunderstanding.

    Digital Requirements:

    1.     Participate in at least 5 guild missions a week. (this is part of how you get paid and how the guild finances GvG and PvP activities as well as all of the services you will be using)

    2.     Be logged into teamspeak3 whenever you are playing BDO

    3.     Declare if you will be active or reserve for the given week. (info below)

    4.     Actively seek to get better each and every day. Being the best requires constant practice.

    5.     Non Guild Members are always a hostility.

    6.     Be the best at something. We will not tell you how to play the game, however you must be a productive member of this guild in order to keep your spot. We will discuss what this is about during an interview if you have questions.

    7.     Be upfront with your goals. Initially your goals will be shared with us during the interview process if this goal changes let us know and we will determine how to help you while maintaining your status as a productive guild member.

    8.     Work together. Ask for and give help whenever able. You and the guild both will be unable to accomplish anything without team work.

    9.     Challenge Yourself Daily. This is the only way to get better. Strive to do bigger and better things.

    10. Don’t Be afraid and don’t quit. There will be some losses during the road to the top. We WILL LOSE some fights from time to time. Don’t get

    discouraged and do not become afraid of the victor. We will come back and show our dominance.

    11. The guild will always come first. You will be expected to put the guild’s needs above your own. You will get out of the guild the effort you put in.

    Active and Reserve Status:

    Due to the large number of members required to be a dominating force in BDO we have implemented an active and reserve system to monitor our members.


    To be considered active for the week you must commit at least 4 hours a day for 4 days out of a given week. This is to allow guild management the ability to know who will be on when for sieges, raid summons, world boss killings, etc.

    Active Members will be expected to uphold their word on availability and in doing so will be considered first for drops, guild events and juicer contracts.


    Reserve members are players on the roster who may be on vacation, or have some personal issues coming up over the course of the next week. The contract value of these players will still be substantial however lesser in value than active members due to them contributing less to the guild in the given week(s) that they are on reserve.

    The reserve members can still participate in endgame raid content on the space available bias, if you do make it onto a raid team during that time you will be given equal consideration for the spoils of the activity. Be aware that when cuts to the team need to happen they will be done from reserve members first.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us though a message or drop a post on our site.  Located here: http://getwreckedblackdesertonline.enjin.com/

  25. Hello there Black Desert Online players both new and veteran. I am looking to start a guild once launch is upon us and I am looking to recruit members.

So if anyone is interested please do let me know. Once the game launches I will post my Character and Family name here so you guys and girls may befriend me and once I hit a high enough Level to form the guild I will send you all invites.
