And other people are like 

1000 Bandanas

0 Fox Masks (From which i have dozens)


It is really frustrating... there should also be a different way to get these gifts imo... running after santa the last 2 days for hours and hours every day has been depressing and not fun at all

It wouldn't be as bad if everyone could loot it for 30 seconds or so after the first rather than just the first person. It doesn't bother me so much because as a maehwa that knows the rotation zooming around at light speed I almost always get it first, but I could tell it visibly upset some others... Let's just say it's a good thing it's in a safe zone, lol. I can't say I enjoy craning my character's neck up towards the sky running around like a fool for an hour at a time though...

I've got nearly all the things, most of which with duplicates of at least like 4 or 5 of each. No Pirate Bandana, King Candy, Hot Chocolate, or Deep Bamboo Hat though.

But, I have to say... the Santa Hat looks extremely stupid for Maehwa. Rather than just wearing it like a normal human being like everyone else they decided to have a pony tail sticking out just the right side of her head (wtf?).BDO-santahatsM-R.thumb.jpg.071578ec21290

I'll also note that the white part is black during the snow, which seems like an oversight they probably should have noticed... though I guess hair does the same thing, which should probably be looked at as well.

I posted this in the Support forums but I also hope you can see it here. A number of us are having the game freeze within 5 minutes of being in a town with Snow. Dual Core and Quad Core processors are having the issue as well. Change in graphics does not fix it.

 

Have same problem. Made the ticket, got answer like "we need to check your internet connection". Facepalm.

Usually after each path games becoming better and better (optimisation etc.), but unfortunually it's not about BDO. 1st my game, where after each path i got new and new problem and my FPS become worse and worse

The game performance has been greatly degradated by the last patch.  I can run into Caliphon which is empty and go to the armor dealer, repair and click out before the NPC appears.

I haven't seen Santa around in a while. Is it only a certain time he comes around?

Have to agree, they did it with tamer too. Though it suits a tamer more. I just wanted a hat, not a new haircut.

  • Backlight and Reflection effects have been updated:

    • The lobby character selection screen, lobby customization screen, Pearl Shop, in-game customization screen, and Dye UI have been updated to include the newly upgraded backlight and reflection effects

Is there a way to disable this?

I wonder if it was really that necessary to inject previous Halloween items into the Santa's Gifts event....I am getting everything but the ONLY item that should drop easily....the Santa Hat. Lots of Jack-O-Lantern, Strawman Hat and Wolf Nose....things we all got with quests during Halloween. 

I mean...RNG even during Xmas....

Only male version of the Santa Outfit comes with the actual Santa Hat and can be purchased. Female version has the elk horns and I forgot to mention that I was trying to get one for my ranger... in the end, I farmed Santa (lol) at Velia and dropped 1 hat. Worth saying that, before getting that, I got something like 35 items, including decors, whistles, earrings, tattoos and tons of Halloween items.

What does the [Event] Deep Bamboo Hat look like? also WHY HALLOWEEN ITEMS IN A CHRISTMAS BOX HAHA

2016-12-16_72258833.JPG.ad8c41729b697014

Basically it's a bucket on a head (not my screen, was too lazy so just copied)...

By the way, advice for people who complained about competition around gifts: switch channel to less populated. I gathered almost all items from the list except the fox mask, but I don't really need so I'm done with event. It took me about 4 hours in total. I just found a channel with the least populated Heidel where none was hunting those boxes even during peak hours.
