Hi guys!

We've written up a Starter/Launch Guide for new players who may be trying the CBT2 or are playing at launch. The guide introduces some of the basic features in Black Desert as well as giving you some tips and answering some of the common questions about the game. Unfortunately, I'm having some trouble uploading the whole guide here due to the size of it. It's over 10,000 words so we've released it on our website a few days before CBT2 so you can start reading ;) You might just be finished by the time it starts! 

Starter/Launch Guide: http://blackdesertfoundry.com/2016/02/16/starterlaunch-guide/

Check out our website for more guides and other tools for Black Desert Online.

Maybe find someplace else to upload it? Maybe put it in a torrent so everyone can help share? Because your website has been shut down for using too much bandwidth.

Yeah the website is struggling a little bit at the moment due to the sudden increase in traffic. Reddit community is crashing us again! Here's a liink to an archive of the guide for now: http://archive.is/K0kUm

kunoichi ninja blader and plum won't be at launch.

@BlackDesertFoundry Would you guys happen to know if there's any awakened weapon skill tree calculators out there yet? Also, has it been confirmed whether or not we'll get the auto-pathing feature in NA/EU?

Nope. Sorry Kittymancer, there wont be any Kunoichi/Ninja, Blader/Plum at launch. The launch classes are Warrior, Valkyrie, Sorceress, Wizard, Witch, Giant, and Tamer

Kunoichi, Ninja, Blader and Plum will not be in the game at launch but our version should get them fairly soon (hopefully 6 months after launch at max).

@BlackDesertFoundry Would you guys happen to know if there's any awakened weapon skill tree calculators out there yet? Also, has it been confirmed whether or not we'll get the auto-pathing feature in NA/EU?

This calculator is the only one I am aware of which shows the awakening weapon skills (under the transform skill tab at the top) http://form1ca.ru/media/bdo/calc/calc_01war.html

We're not 100% sure yet if the auto-pathing feature will be in the game at launch. It hasn't been confirmed yet but auto-pathing was available in alpha and disabled in CBT1. We'll just have to wait until CBT2 to find out but I'm not sure why it would be disabled.

@BlackDesertFoundry Along with my other concern, Black Stones won't be available through the mileage shop for NA/EU....

I've removed this from the Mileage shop information. Should have double checked this beforehand, my bad. They may add these to the Mileage store at a later date. They probably don't want a repeat of RU where people had +15 gear so fast.
