"It's dangerous to go alone" - Game Pass Gifting Option

The only restriction will be that you will need to own the game yourself and have purchased it before the 1st of October 2016

.

Does this mean that if we buy it multiple times now, even if we don't have people to give them to, and then have friends redeem the code after 1st of October, will we still get the rewards? 

I ask since i have friends willing to play but they're in the process of upgrading comps to be able to run BDO, so would it be viable to buy ti for them now or would i have to redeem on an account for them and then level them up to 30 before 1st October?

Edit: By this i mean the purchasing of the new game copy and not my own personal one.

Last time I checked we had the 22nd October... which is way after 1st October already :D

Average price of a pet is $10 anyway. And this polar bear looks like a pet exclusive to this system only if i guess correctly.
So basically... in terms of speaking, in some way... buy the polar bear pet for $10 and get a free account and title ;)  Sure i'll bait! Who wouldn't?!

And i don't even need friends to do this... I'd give the account away to anyone. As long as they get level30 and i get my $10 polar bear, I'm good :D

It'll probably take some time just like game package items. Please let us know if you can use your penguin and polar bear at the same time and if the polar bear really gives any WL at tier 1. Thanks!

What does it mean when it says the coupon is "Not Activated"?

My friend already used it and leveled her character up to 30, but it still says it's not activated. Is it just slow to update? I want my cute bear </3

Just got it, and yup you can use tho two polar pets :3 The polar bear's special ability is the same auto-fishing one as the penguin, but even at tier 1 it has a little skill thingie that says +20LT weight limit :D

Thanks for letting us know!

Could you also check if auto fishing reduction special skills stack when you use them both at the same time?

Husband's guest pass expired yesterday, so today I bought the gift pass for him so he could keep playing, of course it's not letting him apply it because it says he's on a guest pass (even though it expired).

Considering this wasnt mentioned in the original post, would really like to at least know if this was intended or a bug, so I know if we should hold onto the code for it to be fixed or if he needs to just buy the game himself.

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 1st of October 2016. 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

No more excuses from your friends for not joining you in game anymore!

 

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!

I dont know if i can convince GMs to change this event requirements i feel its unfair that to restrict for new users to get benefits :( , why before 1st of October

The Polar Bear pet appears to have the following pet abilities:

Special: Auto-fishing reduce
Talent: Polar Bear (Weight Limit Increase)
Skill: Whatever it learns at Level 10

Details:
http://bddatabase.net/us/pet/55130/

http://bddatabase.net/us/item/18401/

I assume that we wont be able to use both a Penguin and Polar Bear pet at the same time, as with the current one Penguin pet limit, due to it being OP for reducing Auto-fishing times beyond what we can already. I think it is capped/ limited in KR this way also but can't confirm.

If we can get some confirmation on the Special and any such limitations it would be useful at this stage.

Will the polarbear "auto fishing reduce" stack with the penguin & is it able to have both those pets out at once !

more questions to be answered !!!

& what tier are we getting the polarbear !

@CM_Tytyes is there any restriction based on region, i.e. If an NA player gifts a euro player can he still get rewarded?

Region should not be an issue. It would be ridiculous if it was an issue...

The code works the same/similar to how the guest passes work. You just need your friend to activate the code on their account and level to 30... It doesn't matter which server they play on, or what region you are in, as long as you know for sure that you have access to the game then it should work.

Why the restriction? I really wanted to gift the game to a friend but I bought it a bit after the 1st.

to prevent bot accounts from abusing this I assume . That way anyone making an account after this time isn't able to use this method to buy a lot of accounts to use for botting after seeing the announcement. Just a guess.
