Patch Notes - February 22nd 2017 [Updated]

236 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

"All sealed horse flutes have become unbound and can be moved from one character to another. Please note that in order to use the horse flute, you must activate it which will bind it to your character."

Does this mean people like me who bought the $50 game pack back in the day will finally get to use our horse flutes that were bound to our first character?

It means that if you buy a new horse flute it won't be bound to the character that bought it (and can be passed to your other characters) until the item has been used, at which point it will be bound to that character.

From the original event page...

"Players who cast three or more votes for their selected NPC will have a chance to win additional prizes (beyond the participation prize) if their selected NPC is one of the four categories listed.  Please note that phase two is reliant not only on total accumulated votes but luck of the draw as well; 40 players will be selected at random, with ten from each category."

http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/130264-valentines-day-events-update/

"Beyond the participation prize", which means that you didn't need to vote 8 times for the same NPC to get the shards. So once again, nowhere does it say that you had to give all your votes to the same NPC, on the contrary.

You people asking for balance changes that didnt happen in KR are the reason why GMs continue to ignore thread. How about we bring up real issues and talk about why features implemented in KR months ago still havent been added.

5th pet

Optimization

Gavi coztumes

The GMs literally just copy and paste from KR and do a horrible job at it. So many things still dont work. The attendance award was f'd up. The character slot isnt working and the coherent UI is STILL a major problem. I feel like these GMs are the laziest ive encountered in an MMO ever. 

No they're not the reason GMs ignore this thread, GMs always ignore and respond to maybe 0.1% of the forum, that's how it's always been.

 

People are really stupid to expect that they'd do any kind of balancing that didn't already go through korea though. The devs have straight up said they are never going to deploy anything on NA/EU specifically, it was in an interview around launch. If the korean gods deems wiz op they'll nerf it, if not you'll have to deal with it.

Not allowed to sell crafted items from hunting drops anymore? Why?

You're not helping either.

doesnt matter if im *helping* by your standards. Im bring light to actual things that havent been brought to NA from KR.  If the GMs cant take criticism from actual issues and not your typical " omg nerf wizards buff ninjas post" than maybe they shouldnt hold that position. Arent GMs suppose to be interactive with its community or is that a cardinal sin in mmorpgs?

No it does not. "Beyond the participation prize" just means there are more rewards after casting one vote. It does nothing to change the prize requirements.

I'll chime in on the "Cannot Add More Slots" thing here... Will this be fixed prior to the Dark Knight release, or do those of us with 12 slots currently just miss out?

The prize requirement never stated it had to be for one person, and questions about just this were ignored.

No. It means if you never opened the horse flute, the original box is now Family bound. The flute itself is still character bound.

This is an issue for MANY of us who bound the flute to our first character we were trying out back in the day.  I've been sitting on the character since day one in the hopes they would unbind it so I can actually use it on the character I'm playing now.  They NEED to fix this!  That was a huge decision maker on why I bought the pre-order, and got screwed.

Participation prizes were the perfumes, Black Stones, Memory Fragments and shards. The quote you have taken was talking about the Grand Prizes (decorations, costumes and titles), those were requiring to cast 3+ votes for one NPC.

So once again it was never required to vote 8 times for the same NPC to get the 8-votes reward (part of the participation prizes). And if that's the case it was never clearly stated. Learn to read.

I've seen something similar in a movie. It was Beatlejuice, wasn't it? If you would call his name 3 times, he would appear..

Call the fact that "Ninjas are fine" one more time, maybe you'll make it happen.

If you have no skill, ninja isn't for you, it's hardest class in game, just reroll for easier class. I kill even 2 lvl above players with my ninja. Just git gud or get another class.

Greetings Adventurers!

13th character slot does not work. Getting the error " Cannot add more slots " while I clearly only have 12 slots.

Kudo's for pre-releasing this, however the fact that once again it's not tested properly is just once more pointing out your team doesn't test much at all, if anything at all.

The patch notes even say SEALED, ie, if you've used it you're SOL and will have to buy another.

+1 i agree that they just copy and paste without the testing. They dont care though (obviously) as long as the pearl shop is up to date they are good to go.

  • To commemorate the Dark Knight Release, character slot expansion coupon will be available for everyone for 1 Loyalty.

    • Schedule: 2017/2/22 ~ 2017/3/15 (for 3 weeks)

    • Only 1 purchase allowed per family.

    • The maximum amount of character slots will be increased from 12 to 13.

    •  

Really? Working as intended. Apparently we got the standard BDO patch of failure. Things not fixed or new patches not properly working. Does anyone even test the patches prior to release or do we just throw them out there? Yeah no 13th slot. Also to answer someones question on why they remove costume items. They do this to make you think they will never be available again so you run out and buy pearls and spend real money so you can have an item you never wanted before.

The box that the horse flute comes in is now family bound.

The flute itself is still character bound.

This change only allows you to move around unopened flutes.

Before today, if you wanted to buy a flute from the pearl store, you had to switch to the character in need of the flute, as the box would be bound as soon as it is purchased. You can now purchase it on any character and move it around before opening it. This is the only thing that has changed, and it is clear in the notes.
