Greetings adventurers,

Today we have some news to share, specifically about the gifting option of the game itself. Starting today, you will be able to buy a Starter's Package (9.99€) from your own account and gift it to a friend. The only restriction will be that you will need to own the game yourself and have purchased it before the before the 1st of January 2017. If you meet these requirements then you will you be able to purchase a maximum of 10 "Gift Package" per month.

  • Once the purchase is complete, you will receive a gift code to give to your friend. (The code can also be found on your Account page)
  • All your friend has to do is create a BDO account and then redeem your code.
  • If your friend manages to level up to 30 you will have the option to pick a special reward, either; a unique pet, the "Polar bear" or 1000 Pearls, as well as a special title "Topliner" to wear in game. They will be available to redeem from your Account page

Update

We have seen the comments and requests that players want to apply the Gift Pass on their existing Guest Accounts, we will start working on this now and hope to have it implemented by Tuesday of next week!

24/10: We are happy to announce the change has been implemented, players who previously used a guest pass can now properly redeem the Game Pass Code offered by their friends. :)

New Update 25/10: There seem to be an issue regarding payment made through PaySafe Card. We'll keep you updated regarding the situation, in the meantime, if you can, please do not use PaySafe Card as a payment method.

The PaySafe Card issue has now been fixed and everything should work as intended, if you still experience problems please reach out to our support.

Update: At this point of time the limit is 10 "Gift Packages" per account. The amount is not resetting each month!

Update: January 10th - The only restriction will be that you will need to own the game yourself and have purchased it before the before the 1st of January 2017.

1000 pearls is 10 euro's anyway. This is just a roundabout way to get more players into the game.

@CM_Tytyes What is Kakao's stand on people buying multiple accounts for themselves?

They have removed the ability to run two clients at once but from what I recall, their stance on playing multiple accounts is that that is fine, so long as your STDIN is not controlling both accounts at the same time(put in other terms, multiboxing).

That is the most up to date information I have on the topic.

Off course you can pick, it's one or the other. Up to you. :) 

So far we're fine with players having multiple accounts, only thing forbidden is the multiboxing.

If they used their email for the 7 day guest pass, it may have registered them a permanent account under that email, which is why this code is failing to create them a new account under that email, as one already exists.

I've never used a 7 day pass myself, I would personally try logging into the 7 day account and changing that email to something else, then using my main email on the new account.

I'm not sure if this is the issue, but something I'd attempt :)

That would totally be a good thing to fix on the db site though @kakao ;)
