Introducing the Value Pack

Marketplace Collection Tax reduced by 30%

For the duration of the Value Package players will receive a 30% reduction in the amount of tax applied from items sold on the Auction House. For instance: You sell an item for 100% of its value - Minus 30% of taxe - Minus 5% of local taxes = So you get 65% of the original value. With this item you get an extra 30% of those 65% => 84.5%

 

 

just something about this.... SOMETHING

I'm so glad this is out. It's not like we can sell it on the Auction hosue for millions of silver like they did on Archeage. Good move Daum, people that have jobs/work for money will appreciate this small boost. Considering this game should've been subscription based from the start.

I guess people don't realize that Video Games are designed to make money. Daum isn't a charity, they are a business.

Palette of Merv

We know a large number of our players spend an incredible amount of time customizing your characters down to the last intricate detail. Many of you have been very active in sharing these creations within the beauty album, one of our favorites of course was the creative individual who took pictures of a camel instead of their character’s face.

As always we strive to provide players with a wide variety of methods in which to truly make their character unique in Black Desert Online. We’re happy to announce that on July 20th we’ll be adding the Palette of Merv to the list of available options to do so.
 

Functionality:

Most of you are likely familiar on the process of dying your armor at this point, the palette alters this function slightly. There are a few key differences that require mentioning:
 

  • Once activated you may use any dye available within the game.

  • You must use bleach to dye over a piece of armor that has already been dyed.

  • After the Palette of Merv has expired (30 days) your armor will return to its original undyed state.

It only take a few additional steps to make use of the Palette:

  1. Activate the Palette of Merv Item via your pearl inventory.

  2. Open your dye window by pressing “J” on your keyboard.

  3. Select the Palette of Merv dye section. (Indicated in the above image)

  4. Select the armor you would like to dye and begin customizing!

 

As always we hope you enjoy your time in Black Desert Online and wish everyone the best of luck on their adventures, please feel free to leave any questions or comments below.

 

Update

Value Packages for those who purchased previously will go out this Friday.

make the loyalty 30days for 3k loyalty...

Buy to play game + hidden sub (because that's what the value pack is) + cash shop with mostly character bound items which are also very expensive. What's next Daum? Logged out and will monitor your actions. If something is not reverted or changed then I'll be one in the many players that will be abandoning the ship. I hope the rest of the players can keep up with paying for the game because you are going to lose some income.

never heard of it, and it didn't work.

Just noticed they removed the x's on the side of the dye parts of uniforms / armor.

I'm... not at all ok with this lol. It used to be you could apply, remove and re-apply any color at no additional cost. My karlstein was full blood red at one point but now its only black with a red cape...

I'm not sure I consider the 35% tax deduction pay to win, although it is definitely an advantage. With that said, I'm not excited or disappointed to see it implemented. They could keep it or remove it and I would be completely fine with it. I would say though that they should listen to their community. If the MAJORITY (Not the Vocal Minority) wants it gone then it should go.

Seriously if you free loader spent money on the game they wouldn't need to offer this. They need to make money somehow, but most of you think you entitled to your opinion when you don't spend a dime on the game. Just shut up already and enjoy the game you get for free, the 30% extra money won't break the game (the freaking night vendor will drop prices on gems so it will be affordable for everyone to ugprade now). Not like money hard to make anyways.

 

This is how much i have payed in 2 months so plz shut you mouth, they have no reason to be a p2w. Just because there are months many of us cannot pay for a game it does not mean we do not pay at all. I URGE EVERYONE TO SHOW THEIR CASH PURCHUASE HISTORY SO THAT ALL OF THOSE ASSHOLES SHUT IT AT LAST

REMOVE THAT SHIT

Greed destroys another really good game. Just disappointing.

I'm sure introducing this kind of item in the cash shop is a terrible business decision. Many many people will quit over this item (and the road it leads to) and many many people who might consider playing BDO will be scared off.

Promises were broken. :((

Everyone who's playing BDO has already PAID for the game you idiot, the game has never been free...

I spend about 150 euros on this game in the 3 months i played,
adding this package has made me decide to leave the game if it wont be removed,
since it just feels like its intentionally trying to rip me off.

 

I'm not sure who thought adding this was a good idea, but he should be fired.

This feature makes the game more playable for me

 

I just started the game a week-ish ago and I work over 40 hours a week

 

The content I'm on is months, maybe even a year behind most of you, I'm barely in Mediah and won't be in Valencia for a while yet.  By the time I'm able to get to whale hunting no one is going to be doing it anymore.  You need features like this when aspects to the game require co-op or are enhanced with group dynamics.

So... extra buff from costumes (which cannot be obtained with normal armors) are OK, but extra money (which you can get for after somer hours of grinding), is P2W. Is that the point when a game becomes P2W? Because this kind of reasonings, no one will listen to you, never.

It's totally not P2W! You can still get everything for free in this game.

It's only natural that when I pay developers my hard earned cash I should be getting some small perks over all the non-paying scrubs.

Let's be realistic here, all those things are just a very small conveniences and totally not P2W:

  • 20% more experience (costume + value pack)
  • 30% more money (value pack)
  • no death penalty (tears)
  • better drop chance for items (value pack)
  • better pretty much everything (faster horse, much more inventory space, more storage, much more weight limit)
  • pvp advantage (camo)
  • better mob knowledge so more good drops (earrings, glasses)
  • pets to gather loot for us, cause we can't be bothered with pleb stuff like that
  • and many more very small perks

So lets assume me and my friend - a gamer of equal skill spent 300 hours on this game playing same class. He spent 0$ and I spent hundreds. Should I and will I win against him? Of course! I would have better level (exp), better geared character, much more silver in bank, faster horse, boat and dozen more very small advantages.

But game is not P2W.
