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.

Example of BAM: The Troll. That's a really BAM afaik. Making the treeant killable would also be a BAM if they make it hard (and not exploitable).

BAMs on release

If you noticed I was talking about farming argon vitriol which was the mat for VM1, so indeed on release and a bit after that. Now with all the nerfs and the cheese classes Tera is nothing like it used to be.

There are "BAMS" at Crescents in Korea, basically just bigger mobs which are quite strong and take 5-10min to kill with a full party.

too late. Reported:)

as for BAMS. I played Tera quite a bit and not sure why some say they die ina few seconds. That wasnt the case at all. Perhaps i was just beyond bad. But i also liked the challenge of taking on some BAMS that where meant for 3-5 people just solo. Also, BAMS are huge (hence the Big part of the acronym)

lol. They should add dungeons while they're at it.

BDO is open world game so we will get (also we have 1 dungeon - Mediah update) open world dungeons. Valencia 2 offer new dungen and prison.

Id really like if all grind spots would have elites like the helm golems before the 2 mob nerfs (dmg and hp). It was fun soloing 2-3 min on them. I trully belive they nerfed the drop rate for scarlas at golems since some patches ago tho...

Inb4 u tell me all spots have some elites (violents), they were never hard. 

Would be nice to have a zone filled only with elites that u couldnt pull 1 by 1, to be forced to pt up for some epic drops.

BAMS are actually a great idea.

The only thing that i miss from other mmos, is the instances. They give the players a reason to actually play in a group and depend on each others.

Black desert is great, but field bosses are crap, and the grinding as it is is boring. Node wars are sometimes ... too much (with all the preparations and the time they require).

We need a small scale party gameplay, and i think BAMS are a great idea.

Give your vote and lets make this happened!

You should have tried Aion and solo the wind spirit boss thingy solo (at level 36-40). Quite a challenge tbh :3

Actually what I enjoyed about BAMs was soloing them with "underpowered" classes. I still think Tera has way better combat than BDO. Dodge should not require 2 clicks.

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.

then they mustve changed how bams work, as when i played it could take up to a few mins to kill one, where one had to carefully watch their animations to dodge or interrupt. It was a good challange, esp when killing other players figthing bams :D

I would like some bigger scale mobs, like the violent/sturdy etc mobs are only a scale up so they can't be face-rolled by a solo level 60.

Instanced dungeons, no, dungeons yes but if instancing is not this game, more things like Hasrah, and stick some BAMS owning certain areas of it.

This is what Tera BAMs looked like 4 years ago, for on level group. Longish video but whoever has attention span to watch can notice the amount of special attacks it has. Imo, ovoliths were not even the hardest BAMs out there.

I never even mentioned anything about 1% penalty so how about stop assuming and calling out with baseless accusations? I can say its "people like you" they deleted the penalty because of as well so you have only your bully mentality to thank. It was never a PvE nor PvP game, it was supposed to mix both in some meaningful way but it failed miserably. Because of people like you 9_9

When I first came across the summoning scrolls, I expected something similar to BAMs in Tera. The point isn't about them being big, but about them being challenging to fight - aka have to time your attacks properly and avoid/mitigate their damage as they can kill you pretty easily. Unfortunately, the summoning scrolls turned out to be nothing like that... BDO really lacks challenging fights.

So thumbs up for BAMs!

I think the only thing I miss from Tera is the BAMS. Rest game pretty boring after some time. Adding BAMS to BDO's open world would be sick.
