You're naive if you think they won't implement this easy of a cash grab.

they'll allow a 5th pet when pet sales slow down.

can't wait to blow another 100$ for a 5th T4 :D

I don't understand why they can't push this little baby patch into a 15-30 minute downtime. Makes no sense to me. I've seen entire expansions launch on MMO's in less than half the time.

@Beeso the above is fuel for your Twitter argument with BDO_News. I would've done it myself, but got blocked back when they launched Karanda.

So sad, don't they realize that 1/4 of the population (look at how low the population has been since DK pre-awakening, and the promise of a new area, came out) is going off and playing different games while they drag their feet on DK awakening? By the time it comes out some of those ppl won't even bother to come back because they found another game that doesn't play tease like a 6 yr old.

 

And it isn't so much that they can't stand on their own, they sort of can IF GEAR CARRIED (meaning that all the new people who just came to the game because of the DK introduction period are not falling into this category), it just isn't fun since we all know that she is SUPPOSED to be a ranged character, not some squishy wanna-be warrior (not everyone wants to play a warrior/zerker, or a boring witch/wiz that a ape can play).

Im in that boat, when I saw the first DK trailer I felt a "MEH" and didnt think more of it. Then I saw the awakening trailer and I got really happy when I saw that It was a shadowy ranged class. So 1 week before DK hit i sold my old mains weps and started on the DK weps. Now that I've played her to 58 almost 59, i really dont enjoy playing it that much since I didnt care for the non awaken that much.  So the last week all I've been doing is AFK cooking and bottle energy for the NV rolling when awaken hits. 

But this long wait for the awakening made me go over to my other games more and more and BDO is just a tray icon for me now. (I know its my own fault for rerolling pre awaken tho)
 

They really need to start showing timelines for the patches and updates, atleast release the patchnotes a day ahead of the maintanance.

Eh.

Literally worst case scenario. It's a bit of a chore to use a second browser or log out of Twitter to get official news about BDO, but it is taking it up the rear as well. Rock and a hard place ;)

dark knight right now is useless and can't compete with other classes

 

maybe you guys should hurry up with its awakening 

Git gut.I am fighting 190 ap ppl in my guild with a 165 ap dk. "cant compete with other classes" - IS the most overtuned preawak and as strong as awak of many classes.And its not like i am fighting idiots those ppl are the best players skillwise in the guild.Even killed the 230ap witch that is our leader.So dk is underpowered is the biggest BULLSHIT i have heared all day.
