Hey guys during the Race to a Billion I was asked by a lot of viewers who were new to the game how to reach this point in the game. @Derol @Vultr @RK Knight

 

So I took the time out to do a New Series that NEW and OLD players can learn a thing or 2 from. the most iportant things in the academy is learning the economics of BDO so ifyou're going to skip anything please don;t skip the Economics part 

 

tje first few episodes will be long but I give a time table  at the start so depending on your progress you can skip if you want but i do suggest watching as much as you canif you don't then don't bother asking m where or how I got all those resources -_-

Quick question, you say when your workers harvest maple nodes they get maple and sap, however mine haven't got any sap? is this because of which worker is on that node?

I found the 1st academy video to be useful. Now I've made and added imperial cooking to my to-do list. 

The only feedback I have is instead of starting with Large Fences, people should start with the Small Fence to save CP.

You should use this map: http://www.somethinglovely.net/bdo/

Tells exactly wich node gives what and what extra items you can receive.

Why exactly?
I got large fences so im interested if i can get some extra CP back. :P

3cp= 4 slots (Small fence)

10cp= 10 slots (Large fence)

 

Math Example: 20 slots

(Small fence) 3cp * 5= 15cp

(Large fence) 10cp *2= 20cp

Can't access youtube right now so I can't check if you have one solely devoted to money making by cooking. If not, could you do that? I wan't to make a lot of silver with cooking, cuz its fun, but right now, it seems rather inefficient compared to just grinding...

Tips for anyone making guide videos

When the video starts, in the first minute of the video, you should let us know:

- How will you get money / reach your goal

- How much time / money / CP do we need to invest, minimum level required, etc

- How much money do you make  per hour / day / week / 1000 items sold / whatever

 

For example, i really don't wanna watch a 50 min video about farming gold, just to find out around minute 35 that the presenter gets like 4 mil / gold per hour. You if want to engage the users into watching videos, the first thing you should do is stating all of the above. One phrase for each bullet point would be enough.

i mention the beginning of the series is fundementals and that is you want do , " A to get B kind of video" you will get that later on. the first few videos is going to be for setting things up like forming a skeleton before the organs and bosy is constructed 

 

and Yes I will do a cooking video and then I will give pople blanket ways to make money after I feel a solid foundation is made thats why i took the time to explain the economic part and made a video dedicated to the video. also time frames depends on time dedicated to the game so i can give broad time frames but not specific because people play different amounts  

 

If you want sell this to make x an hour without explanation of markets in case of crashes/changes there are many videos that provide that but I want help people understand the fundementals so they can change so their success is almost garunteed no matter what market changes that happens

 

also it will be irresponsible to give blanket ways and figures that will be likelyy to change with the markets only time i can give you info like that is when I'm talking about grinding/imperial trade

 I'll have to change my documents for making money with alchemy thanks to this horrible update for alchemist

watch blade boques if thats what your looking for.

 

I'm talking about creating an endless crafting cycle build that nets 1-2bil per month I understand it can be drawn out since my system isn't 1 2 3 set up but Trade Crates are easier to do and better in some ways depending on playstyle. once i set the found dation down for new players can understand how the system started I will make money making videos for 50+ avenues in a similar format but the way i reach these conclusions are more valuable than the actuall conclusions this is how we prevent copycats from mindlessly oversaturating markets

Okay, we can use your insect logic and be completely unable to take a shower for the duration of the 3 weeks, or we can use our superior human reasoning and closer examine and plan out our grinding sessions and make an attempt to leave enough time for a shower. 

 

 

We will use basic arithmetic, a feat an average 8 year old is capable off.

Farming 8 hours solo , nets you 80m per day(10mill  per hour).  Let's say I farm 4 days a week for 8 hours(4X80M). Thats 320mill a week, times 3 weeks thats 960mill.

One could even do something crazy like, farm 4 days for 4 hours on weekdays(16 hours). And farm for 8 hours on weekends. 

A week has 7X24=169 Hours, our total investment is 32.  168-32=136 hours left for shower.(while making a ~1billion silver in 3 weeks in BDO grinding pirates)

 I can assure you that while on my quest for power and glory, I am in good company. I am accompanied by Epictetus,Seneca ,Montaigne, Hume,Kant,Aristotle,Plato,Godel,Schrodinger,Nietzsche,Leibniz, Schopenhauer,Sartre,Heidegger .......... and many other great  thinkers.

A master of superior human reasoning, while at his/her throne is not limited to one task. If I were to be so bold as to say, that a master of superior human reasoning could discover the secrets of the universe with out ever having the need to leave his/her throne.

 

Although, this or any matter, has absolutely nothing to do with, by which company one is surrounded with, if any at all. Anyone with superior human intelligence chooses to do what makes them happy. On the other hand, a slave or a member of the herd, the lowliest of men, can only find comfort by following the herd, and following the rules of the herd, always looking for approval from others, and fearing to be an individual and follow a path that he chooses himself, but instead blindly follows a path that was chosen for him. Due to the fact that such a man is weak, and fearful, and unhappy,  he is also filled with resentment for anyone who dares to venture outside the herd, he despises those that have which he does not possess, freedom to do what one wishes... So the weak inferior slave human , upon seeing experiencing the presence of the higher human can only do one thing, is to lash out at him with envy, and resentment. 

 

I could go on and on, but I will just finish off with this quote.

 

"For anyone who has lived in such a way, that his conscience cannot reproach him for ever having failed to do anything that he judged to be best, derives a satisfaction with such power to make him happy, that the most vigorous assaults of the passions never have enough power to disturb the tranquility of his soul."

-Descartes

Keep up that grind! :D
