Greetings Adventurers, 

To be ready for exploring the sea world of Margoria, a considerable sized patch must be applied to all game clients. Some previous patches contained Margoria pre-patch data and you might have read about it in the maintenance announcements. There is however, still a considerable amount of data that needs to be downloaded.

We decided to spread the remaining pre-download over the next 2 weeks and plan to make batches available starting next Monday the 16th. Each pre-download batch will be around the size of 1GB. Part 2 and 3 are scheduled for 17th and 18th January. Exact dates for the remaining parts are still to be determined.

We hope this will help users with slower connections to experience Margoria on the 25th of January without a long delay.  This will also reduce the risk of having to re-download a huge patch in cases where players experience download issues that could require a restart of the download.  

 

The BDO team

Max Fame for combat is 1 mil

Max Fame for Life is 500k

Max Special Fame is 250k

Fame levels need to balanced-Life and Special are way harder to achieve in terms of time then combat levels and need to boosted up to max of 1 mil as well.

I never said 56 was max, just what they were basing the minimum for fame on.

1000 beers nets around 175-200 dishes so that is 35-40 turn ins at best per batch still way easier to level combat levels than contribution.

Level to 60 then tell me it's easier to sit afk and do nothing.

PLEASE GIVE THE HORSE COMMUNITY SOME LOVE. We haven't had a good update in forever. Our breeding rate is crap in comparison to Korea. Korea has better breeding rates, up to t5 in the wild, and they have an ability to obtain horse xp scrolls outside of achievements.

EDIT: Even when we ask for something as simple as our own forum section, we are given generic responses. Korea has their own horse section in their forums..

What she said. :-)

I feel that the biggest change to the way items work and overall feel for the whole our moneys worth should be changed. There needs to be an account wide option for anything sold via pearl shop, this should include pets, items, costumes, other clothing, i know many things are technically account wide now that server merge happened, but i do not think costumes are trade able within the same account, I have been wanting to take my pre-order costume and put it on another character. Permanent account wide items would feel a lot more worth while to get.

Kzarkas are already much better than Livertos, but it's all in hidden stats so it's virtually impossible to explain - you'll see if you try it.

i have kzarka tri and liverto tri ( i can provide you a screenshot if dont believe me) and i dont see any difference in dmg output. Only a 5/7% more accuracy.

Okay then, I'm going to believe you over my own experiences and that of a fair few guildies too. In my experience, for grinding, a pri kzarka = a tri liverto.

PvP may vary, but I don't believe I ever claimed Kzarkas have hidden PC dmg.
