Black desert has THE most ungrateful community ever;
-Hey guiz, here's new content, enjoy!

-WOW 7 HOURS FOR THIS? KAMASILVE WHEN? SERVER FIX WHEN? STRIKER WHEN? WARRIORS BUFFS WHEN? SUCH TRASH COMPANY.

If you bought the game on release, even biggest edition, that's like 70$ (if you're a pearl shop fan that's on you), if you are here and still care, you probably played 3k hours+, that's 42h of fun per buck. Now think about it and if the company is so shit and you don't feel like it's worth it, then go back to whatever other MMO that feels right for you.

You know, there are many many people that put more than 70 buck to this game. And some invested thousands.

What does this mean? The golden goose egg quest that was added? I won't claim it is the most exciting "event" ever, but it does seem to work for me.

When KAKAO decides to let him out of the stable T_T. Poor JoJo had hoof surgery -:)

Officially we will release JoJo with the Striker Awakening, until that we need to remove all the toxicity from our sheep goats otherwise, no T9 will survive in our stables.

Thank you! I look forward to any answers you can find. 

In any case, it seems likely that we will eventually reach a point where the CP soft cap has to be raised out of necessity due to the age of the game and the amount of new content available. Hope that point in time isn't too far away.

I've reported it to the team, at this time I don't have anything I can share regarding their ongoing investigation. Soon as I do I'll be sure to pop by the thread, I know you guys have been waiting and we do see all the @staff tags. ;)

What concerns me too is that even tho the cap was supposedly raised by 100 points, there was no difference whatsoever in anyone above 350, which means there was virtually no change.

Devs have to realize that the CP system makes sense on its own; what I mean with this is that; to reach 350 CP you have to dedicate your gameplay to it, if your gameplay revolves around CP; it's almost guaranteed that you've bought lodgings and at least some amount of storage, since it's so cheap and the CP savings are so great, it makes no sense not to, if you care that much about CP. Pearl items, in the past, were enough to save a nice chunk of CP to be able to focus on other things, but we went from 1 CP each node in vanilla areas; to Mediah nodes which cost 1/3 CP and then Valencia nodes which pretty much all cost 3 CP, we went from being able to send a worker to a node for virtually 2 CP (the node/the production node within the node) to 6 CP (3 CP each) for a single product.

My point is, people that care about CP will buy the pearl items guaranteed, people that dont; even more so cause they're struggling, since their gameplay is limited and the benefit from the pearl items is so great; increasing the cap at this point will not interfere with people buying pearl items that save CP.

I've bought all lodgings and enough storage boxes to not have a single CP more than it's needed in things like storage and, still, I find myself with 0 CP at all times, there's just too much CP content at this point, and because of Korea; we know that this last CP cap will be the definitive and STILL asking us for 100k EXP per point when you know 350 isnt even the harcdap anymore, is mental.

Lemme put it into perspective, to get a single Contribution Point you'd need to do pretty much every CP daily in the game every day, and you'd get a point every 9/10 days, or (for the same result) you can choose to cook 55k times (since CP dishes proc chance was nerfed), lets say 5.5k every day, the easies recipe is Essence of Liquor, so you'd need to process 5.5k flour, plant 5.5k strawberries in your fences and spend 3 hours cooking non stop, even at 1 second a cook, EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Any of the above or even a combination of the two would take the entire gametime of a pretty dedicated player, and for what reward? 1 Contribution Point every 10 days, and on top of that the tooltip claims that's not even the hard cap?

Madness.

I'm confused about the goose egg event. Says it's a daily event, but hasn't reset yet. Is it truly a daily, or was it a 1 time event? Can we get a confirmation? Is the event broken, or are the patch notes incorrect? If the patch notes are incorrect, that's pretty garbage and we should have at least got a blackstone event for an awakening coming out. Right now a lot are stuck because of running out of stones to fail stack properly on.

ha lol...i was ovethinking it then. I knew what a JoJo was outside of mmos and thought maybe it was some new interweb jargon outside of reality.

All Classes

  • All character’s DP effectiveness has been increased.

!!!!!!

 

only in PvP tho.

what even more confusing is why we've got to do the quest once... for no reward...to unlock the exact same quest to do for a reward...baffling! They should do this exact same thing for all quests so maybe other people will see how annoying it is...

I think, can't remember, but if you go into settings then come back out you can reconnect without restarting! give it a try next time.

 

Cheers

as i just mentioned to someone else:

To all those New players complaining that KR have something and we don't.... We will always be well behind Korea. They will take the servers between 5 and 7 hours every week, even if they don't apply anything. Get used to it.

You can still buy individual items from a set, you just need to chose it. The only difference from before is that now they're all under one "tab", rather as listed individually

Greetings Adventurers,

Found below are the patch notes for this week. We are excited to release the Dark Knight Awakening along with the Golden Flondor Goose Egg Event! This patch is ~794 MB.

sjAnDNg.png

89kP5S2.png

Golden Flondor Goose Egg Event begins.

    • Event Duration: Apr. 12 ~ Apr. 26, 07:59 UTC

    • An event-related quest titled ‘Legend of Florin’ can be obtained from the Black Spirit.

    • This quest will navigate you to Florin to visit the NPC ‘Valentine’ where you can begin the hunt to find the Golden Goose and her egg.

    • Find the wandering goose near Florin to earn the Golden Goose Egg. This quest can be done once a day.

Is there a Level cap on that quest?
Because I don't have it from black spirit.

Did you check your quest preference setting?

For me, setting as all for the setting, the event quest was up from Black Spirit.

In the resolved issues Warrior's have the same problem. If that hasn't been stated already it happens while in awakened form using "Executioner" I noticed because I have the deepest voice set but when I use the skill the default voice is being used.

Excuse me, but this golden goose egg event...

  1. Usually event (quest)s get a different topic in the event subforum. -- This did not happen.
  2. Usually event quests are given by the black spirit if they are dailies. -- This only happened for the very first completion. For some reason after that it became an ordinary repeatable, invisible to those who for whatever reason do not have all quests turned on, and do not check back to Florin the very next day or stumble upon this patch notes forum topic and its comments.

I for one cleared my chace just before the event because I reinstalled windows. Did not notice until today that my "all quests" was not turned on, and I only noticed because I read some global chat today seeing people opening the golden goose egg, started searching, you know the rest. Thanks to those guys along the lines in this topic who shed light upon this "mystery" (and sadly not to the bdo team).

Seeing some other comments I am not the only one who ended like this. Sorry but this event management (even for more seasoned players, not to talk about newbies) is hell unacceptable and made at least a fair amount of players miss rewards, which -- in my opinion -- rightly calls for some kind of compensation. Or the very least: much better communicated and managed events in the future.

This really terrifies me. I'm not even up to that point yet and I'm constantly struggling for CP. Interesting that @CM_Aethon stated that the devs don't think they're at a point in their service where a CP cap raise is warranted. I'm sure most people feel that a raise is long overdue. As you said, you are pretty much required to buy all the lodging and storage increases to keep all your previous nodes as you move into new areas. If not, you eventually reach a point where your empire can't spread any further, which is frustrating for many reasons. It seems completely plausible that those increases are some of their best sellers, and they don't want to take a decent loss by making them not as necessary if you care about CP.

Why not match the Golden Egg and Flondor Goose Egg together? I am so bitter (sad really) because I was not aware it ended on the 19th. I was 2 eggs away from my chandelier.......
