Worth returning to BDO?

14 posts in this topic

Hi,

I played BDO over the summer, left around ~August ish... I see a few new classes were added along with awakenings.  I really did enjoy the sandboxy "do what you want" "manage your little empire" feel to the game.  I left because I became involved with some other games (old and new), awakening wasn't out yet, and a few "systems" in the game were really crappy.

How has the game fared in the last few months?  How is the population, etc?

I returned a couple of days ago and so far it seems good! It's more about how you plan to catch up re: weapons/gear

What really got my interest was all of the awakening weapons that are now available.  

I had a 50 Valk and a 46 zerker when I left.  Just grinded the zerker to almost 49...then realized that the awakening weapons are only available at 56.  

Honestly, my interest hangs on a thread at the moment with BDO and I dont have the desire or drive to grind another 6-7 levels, and go through a quest chain at the end of it to get the awakening weapons.  I just wanted to try THAT out to see if that stuff is something I would enjoy.  

Game is still great though, just not sure I have the desire to devote what is needed.

Ahh cmon. Iam getting annoyed by all those "Is it worth to return?" "Should I return?" posts. I can understand if people want a quick rundown for all the updates, but asking if the game is worth it is kinda .. meh.

Gonna anwser your question with this.

 I really did enjoy the sandboxy "do what you want" "manage your little empire" feel to the game.  I left because I became involved with some other games (old and new).


 

You enjoyed the game, but left cause other games were fun too. Why should you not return or atleast just test it out c:

The game isn´t dead. There was a server merge a few weeks ago, now we have one big EU and one big NA server.

If you are interested enough in the game to open a post about it, than I think you will probaly enjoy it. Especally cause you played it before and you liked it.

If you kept your old characters, I'd say yes, definitely worth returning. If not and you're starting from scratch... hmm... depends how much free time you got?

As of today we do finally have ALL awakenings tho

Awakenings, New Zone, No XP loss on PvP death, Olvia Servers that give you 100% more EXP.

Feel free to come back and play, there's also an ongoing event that gives you a free penguin pet.

Thought the penguin pet was only part of the loyal players event. Fairly sure there is no pet in the returning players event?
