Cash shop required to do guest?

Posted (edited)

So I am doing the new underwater quests and the first one i get to I use my pot to add to my underwater breathing time and I cannot get to the quest goal before my breath runs out. I go back to the mainland get 2 of the new 15 sec gems put them in some boots and go back out and continue the quest chain. I get to the explore the trench and even with 100 seconds of dive time I am unable to make it to the guest goal. Are we going to be required to buy a fish/shark to do the new quests. I bought this game under the impression that I would have access to ALL the content without having to buy access. Was I wrong is BDO going to release more content that you cannot do without cash shop purchases? FYI to anyone doing the quest you can cheat by logging out while diving to reset your breath.

 

Edit: I had a 10 second pot 2 15 second gems  and I still could not get there in the 100 seconds of dive time do Is the non cash shop margin so narrow I would have to use the 15 second potion and the gems to just barely make it? I dove multiple time and timed myself  I took over 100 second and I was still not able to interact with the gust objective. Edit 2 Had +4 movement speed.

 

Edit 3:Is the margin for success so thin that without a fish/shark suit you HAVE to have +15 pot @ +15 gems and  +5 movement speed just to have a chance? I mean I was only missing 5 seconds of breath and 1 move speed from that.

Wouldn't be a problem if you could sell 100% of pearl items on the marketplace with no weekly limit. However, this community finds that pay to win, but costumes like the shark one being CASH ONLY not.

So you can thank the community for making this game MORE pay to win with their silly outrages.

You can do it without the shark costume. It's quest though, not guest.

Huh? I did all the diving quest without a costume.... Just use Seal elixir and 2x 15 sec underwater gem. Also heard rumors that movement speed affect swimming speed so get that +5 mv speed

As  you about to run out of breath,  swap channels and you will be in the same place with full breath.

I  never was one for work arounds,  exploits etc  but this quest line was the first time I felt my hand being forced to buy something.

So fack it.

I did all diving quests yesterday with no cash shop items. Used 2 diving gems on shoes and Party elixir of seal. Also used event item (you could use a potion of swiftness alternatively) for added speed and 3 pieces of Talis armor for +5 movement speed in total (movement speed increases swimming speed). Try to get a rough idea where your target is the first time you dive and then go ontop of it on the water surface and dive again as vertically as you can to minimize distance. If you are out of stamina change channels or chars(back and forth) or relog char to replenish it

EDIT: I probably had the effects of Balenos Meal too. I always forget that because I constantly eat Balenos or Serendia to raise my health stat.

OK... MY method:

1) Get movement to +5 (using speed crystals/ meals/.... the coffee or tea gives +3 movement for 30 mins.. so a +2 crystal and either coffee or tea with +3 gives you the +5

2) Use either of the Breath Extenders (Seal potion being most common)

3) At less than 50% breath, switch channels OR go to Character Selection Screen and then just relog in and breath back to 100% continue dive/search.. rinse and repeat as required (One part of Valencia Quest I 'held breath' for easy 4 mins)

And yes, I now have the Free +15 Shoe Crystal..... so Magoria will be a bit easier (maybe lol)

 

ADDENDUM: I read about the switching and also the speed to +5 from other posts either on this site or on others and used it and can verify that they do aid you.

There is also a +10 second breath food item, new with this expansion.    You can take 3 of the +10 second potions and combine them to get the +15 second if none are available.

You have a thread, go there. What you're asking for is complete and utter retardation, more mmos out there than I care to count that would easily cater to your needs and THEN some.

Thanks for speaking on behalf of the entire community with stats that came out of your back side.

I hear a Plunge headed your way.

Quit your whining, you voiced an idea and the community didn't like it. No need to splerg your tears over every thread.

Look for the air bubbles, you'll find that they are the circular whiteish blobs in the water. If you go for them it'll reset your timer.
