On the 12th of October 2016, an Ocean content patch was added to the NA/EU BDO servers. This guide indicates exactly what has been added so far and what more is to come in the future.



Unfortunely, we don’t know when all the ocean content will be released. At the moment, undersea gathering and treasure is not available on the NA/EU version. We do have some important changes though:

  • You can no longer drown and will instead rise to the surface when the breath guage is empty
  • If you run out of stamina (5/100 stamina) you will have a movement speed debuff
  • The breath guage time has been increased from 30 seconds to 60 seconds
  • You can now interact with NPC/objects whilst swimming or diving (NPC/objects have not yet been added)
  • Navigation profession has been added to the rankings list but does not seem to level up at the moment and doesn’t appear in the character profile window




If you are going to venture into the deep, I would advise buying Elixir of Seal, this elixir will allow you to breathe underwater for 60 seconds. Movement speed also effects how fast you swim underwater, so using food and/or elixirs you can easily speed up your swimming. The Meat Sandwich is a good choice because it has movment speed +1 and max stamina +100, allowing you to swim for longer as well. Combined with Elixir of Swiftness, there will be a noticeable difference in your swimming speed.

The Splat Fisher’s costume will increase your swimming speed and reduce stamina consumption when swimming. The costume can be very convient but is not required to enjoy the new ocean content.



Below is a detailed list of what we can expect in the future.


  • Ocean expands with 5 new areas to discover
  • New monsters will be added which can only be found in the ocean
  • Golden Treasure Chests and Golden keys will be added both inland and at sea.
    • Opening a Sealed Golden Treasure Chest can contain the following: Sharp Alchemy Stone of Destruction, Sharp Alchemy Stone of Protection, Gold Ingot 1000G, Hedgehog T3, Dandelion Weapon Box, Nouver’s Sealed Sub-Weapon Box, Basilisk’s Belt, Tungrade Earring, Ogre Ring, Sicil’s Necklace, Magic Crystal of Infinity – Experience, Polished Alchemy Stone of Destruction, Awakened Spirit’s Crystal, Black Magic Crystal – Harphia, Polished Alchemy Stone of Protection, Polished Alchemy Stone of Life, Gold Ingot 100G, Ring of Crescent Guardian, Tree Spirit Belt, Blue Whale Molar Earring, Witch’s Earring, Ancient Guardian’s Seal, Mark of Shadow, Golden Coelacanth, Hard Black Crystal Shard, Sharp Black Crystal Shard, Cron Stone
  • You can collect objects underwater using a hoe, such as: Lobster, Oysters, Clams, Seaweed, Coral, Starfish
  • Navigation profession level will be fully implemented, it is leveled by sailing certain ships
  • Shipwreck knowledge will be added to the adventure journal section and will reward you with energy +2 once completed. Interact with shipwrecks on the sea floor to gain knowledge.
