A part of Pearl Abyss worked at Continent of the Ninth.

They would have enough monsters with the three Treants, the dragon above Kaia Mountain, Black Shadow at Trina Fort, Ancient Ator somewhere in the desert and all the other monsters they removed / hinted at.

And aren't the world and field bosses BAMs? Or is there a difference between those?

Make that giant treant fightable and the mutant ogre/troll killable. Done.

The Troll can be killed, at least in Korea. Though it takes them 40 minutes with elephants, siege weapons and tons of players with awakenings.

Technically, if they gave us BAMS, they would be giving us death... so players would die. Ehehehehuehue. What? I thought it was clever.

This^. We so need dungeon. 5-man instances, new loots, more RNG.

I'm sure it's already part of the drawing board just a matter of when.

There is nothing epic anymore about BAMs in Tera. Maybe years ago, when a BAM fight was indeed a fight, that actually required a group and took time. Now virtually anyone with semi-decent gear can solo them, you really have to try hard to fail on them.

I guess you are talking about "regular" BAMs, and not real dungeon / raid bosses (that's a different story, although some +15 chaps can actually solo-duo some of those too). I am not sure what the equivalent would be in BDO, but the "elites" we have strolling around aren't that much different I would say.

And yes indeed, Tera is still my "main MMO", since head start, so I believe I know a little bit about BAMs there (open world, alliance, vanguard, "world boss" ones).

I haven't seen them mention or include dungeons on any of the coming updates. Maybe I missed it but seeing all the updates that people on the forums ae providing, there has been no mention of it. We however, do need dungeon system. Open world bosses are a joke right now.

You have no clue what BAM is if you can compare them to any kind of boss in BDO.

I think he means GW2 dragon style, big ass bosses; Tequatl, The shatterer Etc..Heck, even Riders of Icarus massive world bosses would be cool.

As I've never played TERA that isn't as of much surprise.

The abbreviation also states nothing more than the monsters being big, which Kzarka is. And thinking about it, all field bosses are relatively small, so I guess those are out of consideration.

It is not about the size, it is about the challenge. BAMs in Tera used to be the most fun and challenging PvE content I ever saw in any game. Even killing basilisks on my lvl 20 sorc felt like a huge accomplishment. There is nothing in BDO coming even remotely close to that.

I used to farm nagas in Trallhold for argon vitriol back in a day on my archer and I enjoyed the grind so much. In comparison, pirates make me want to make lobotomy to endure them more than an hour.

take red nose world spawn before they nerfed it, and make it where you need a group of 5 to kill, and there's a lot of them.

 

That's how bams in tera used to be a long time ago, took some time to kill and stood as a challenge outside of dungeons.

As someone who has played TERA religiously up until about three weeks ago, I can say that BAMs on release were a big deal, but they're nothing more than mobs after that.

Most of the max level BAMs can be killed solo in 1 to 2 seconds, maybe 3 if you're brand new.

They're stunnable, so if you open with a stun then they just don't move at all before they're dead.

Even without stuns, they are no challenge at all in any sense, regardless of your level, and are pretty useless entirely.

 

I understand what you mean by wanting BAMs, but taking directly from TERA's awful "mini-worldboss BAM" ideas is not as great as you may remember.
