Exactly how am I supposed to produce enough purified water to continue my alchemy leveling.

 

Workers can't supply enough.

And buying it off the auction house or processing cactus sap removes a large portion of the profit.

not sure if i should lol or Rage, i literally popped a Karmasil last night to collect water when i logged on after sleeping, which is now, kinda glad i saw this before i went to tarif. Are you going to reinburse me for it? or is this a go screw yourself we dont care situation? (cheak log files CM_Aethon im not lying!).
Actually.... nevermind, i'll just waste the energy on other stuff i've been ignoring

Greetings Adventurers,

 

In the process of reviewing game functionality for our most recent patch our team discovered a bug with the current implementation of the ‘Shovel’ item. As a result of this we’ll be temporarily blocking the use of the item from the game while our Developers work to apply a remedy.

 

We understand this may directly impair the ability to complete some quests and other aspects of the game requiring the use of this item. At this time we ask for your patience while a fix is developed and applied.

 

Further information will be delivered through this post regarding our best estimated time for restoration of the ‘Shovel’ functionality. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and thank you for your understanding.


- BDO Team

 

Update

Unfortunately at this time we are also going to need to block the use of Empty Bottles.

 

We understand this will be inconvenient for those who wish to adventure in the Valencian Desert as these are the two most common ways to gain Purified Water.  While we work on fixing this matter you will still be able to purchase Purified Water from the Auction House and/or use Thinning to convert Cactus Sap into Purified Water. Alternatively, there are two nodes you can invest in to have your workers gather Bags of Muddy Water; Kunid’s Vacation Spot & Leical Falls.  If you have not had a chance to visit these nodes before we have provided a screenshot below to help you find them.

 

Node Locations

Hidden Content

 

Again we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. We will make an update announcement as soon as we have updated information to share for fixing the above mentioned issues.


-The BDO Team

Wow, i cant believe what i just read... there's a bug, you simply totally disable the ability to use bottles and showels... without implementing an emergency and temporary alternative?
Could be modify cooking water so it can be processed to distilled water, modify merchants so they can sell "pre-filled bottles" instead of empty ones
No more alchemy, no more fertilizers,
But, hey! You can just enable muddy water nodes! Wow, yep, sure, 90% of your playerbase certainly has 20+ CP available for that...

Help!??  I started the mini elephant quest and already paid the 5mil for villa access and 30mil to start quest.  The only  thing left to do is 20 empty water bottle fill with water and to gather weeds.  My villa access that I  paid 5mil will expire in less then 7 days.  If they don't fix water bottle issue by then, does that mean I have to pay another 5 mil for another villa access pass to finish quest?

No water on market, Workers gather water at the slowest rate, and cactus is found IN the desert.

Luckily had some river water stashed away already, but been wondering all day why I couldn't remove bottles from my storage or buy them.. Finally found this thread. Hope it's fixed soon! Just started venturing into the Desert and don't wanna die out there ;D

This is also affecting the quest that has a shovel and empty bottle as a reward. I can't continue my story quest at Oasis because of this problem. I need the free 7ap ring from the quest :D

I'm very tempted to process the river water I collected last night and sell it on the marketplace. It just sucks that I can't use my energy to collect more.

I literally just started this quest also, and am on the same part where you need to collect water.  Shame I didn't know about this disabled feature till AFTER I paid the 5 million for villa access.

Would have been nice for them to give us some kind of info on it, like in the launcher client, like every other game does..

Would be nice to be able to move or at least SELL these items back to a vendor without the internal memory error.
