Somewhere around 150-200€... So far bought 4 pets, horse armor, costume for my main and 2 char slots (didn't know we'd get a free one for the new class). i know that doesn't quite add up to the amount of money I've spent, but I'm saving the rest to buy stuff later on :D I have played for less than a month so I have many things to figure out before buying anything else.

How "gud" am I? Uhhh, level 54 on my main; never touched PvP and I can guarantee I'd be horrible at it anyway, I have about 105AP and 90+ DP, no idea about builds or combos (I just use what feels comfortable to play with), never been at any of the popular grind spots and strongest mobs I've ever killed are Manes :D So I don't think I could win anything by spending even more money on the game.

Around 500€. Got drunk one night and decided that i need 1 luck on one of my pets so i wouldnt be forced to use a gem. Good part is i got one luck on my t3 eagle, and made my dog, fox and cat t4. Bad part is that i spent 370€ on pets. The rest was for 2 costumes and weight limits.

Cuz pen gear is sitting on the market, right.

There were a couple of PEN off-hands sitting there a few days ago. And PEN armor.

1).  Specifically 3x as fast actually as 1 artisan = 3 memory fragments.  Time is money, you pay to save time not for power.  There is nothing I can throw money at and buy directly that you cant get in game.

2).  RNG is RNG, no amount of $$$ will help you there, you cant buy PEN junk with $$$ as RNG is RNG and those items simply either don't exist and/or are super limited.

3).  And lastly...  you sir or madam are salty and reek of peasant jealousy, GOOD DAY!

WOW I THINK YOU ARE STUPID

1) enchanting does not requirer only fragm. 10 fragm + 1 sharp is 11.6 mill (so you actually save 3.3 fragm thats 2.475mill)  its definitly not 3x fast .

2) you are stupid since i clearly stated how rng is meanlingless when buying items is more efficient

3) i'm salty yes but what am i jealous about? Please tell

 

Paying for saving time is such a stupid argument. So if you play 10 min/day and pay to save 10 hour of time every day the game is not p2w? nice joke (not talking about bdo, bdo is p2w when both player are hardcore and 1 p2w and 1 doesnt)

2k+

Tri Kzarka & Kutum
Full Tri Grunil
Tri Bhegs(I missed a lot of free boss armors from the attendance reward)
Tri Blue Awakening.
4 T3 and one T4 pets.

Have enough memory fragments for another tri boss armor I imagine..just have to be lucky and win the bid or night vendor roll.  So far has not happened.

Game is definitely not P2W, I would be much further ahead then most people here if it was.  All the alts I switch to have cash shop costumes as well; just one or so.  I have also been playing since release(Also played the KR BDO prior to the megaserver) so my progress is a bit behind where I should be.  Believe I should be in Tet+

Player b will progress over 2 times as fast.

Rng doesnt matter when its more efficient to buy,

Rng matters only on hard to get items like tet accessories and pen weapons.

So the player can P2W their way the best gear because RNG doesn't matter, but RNG does matter when trying to get best gear? Ok...

Get a grip delusional plebs.

If anyone is delusional, it's the person crying about the game whilst still playing it and using the forums. :)

Genuinely curious why you're still playing Black Desert Online if you dislike it so much.

rng doesnt matter for the first 10 months of the game and after that  you are so far ahead that you will still be ahead.

Nice job on quoting btw

I've spent a lot. I'm pretty good. But TBH the money I'm spending is not to pay2win. I spend 90% of my money on cosmetic items which i use myself. Expect for this time:

Thirty bux for the base game last year ni**ah  , an I have a lot more crap than almost any of the people I'm in a guild with and some of them spent 300 plus

All TRI gear,  all Boss Gear, 4 tier7 hawses, stables Capped on Horses & Noble wagons, almost capped on fish boats, three Rank1 homes, Master rank lifeskills, a bil silv in accessories, 1000+ of every rare crafting Mat, & 300 contrib.  But the ONLY one that matters to me:  experience from playing EVERY aspect of the game.  You don't get that being a part timer who buys their fun from the cash shop.  Killers burn out & Achievers run out of cash, But Explorers will always find a reason to keep going

$100 - $500

Most of it has been for value packs or in the beginning, costumes. But lately I just resort to sniping them on the MP.

Only two more Ninja costumes to go lol.

I've spent over $2000 on this game, mostly personal items, some things to sell for people requesting, not concerned with p2w aspect because usually those who talk about it usually don't understand how little you get from selling items, but i think its hilarious how they try to justify themselves
