The Big Farming Guide - By Not_Alice, enjoy ♥
 

Greetings Folks \o

Here is my guide about farming and everything you need to know about it.
 

  1. How to Start a farm
  2. What should i plant on my farm?
  3. Loot you get from farming.
  4. What does Temperature, Humidity, and Groundwater mean?
  5. Do i need scarecrows, waterways, fertilizer?
  6. Should i use workers to take care of my farm?
  7. Do i get any benefits from a higher profession level?

 

1.How to start a farm.

To start a farm you need a fence there are 3 types of fences:
Small Fence for 3CP with 4 slots. (Obtainable from Enzo, Difry Hussey, Mael Costa)
Plain Fence for 6CP with 7 slots. (Obtainable from Mercianne Moretti, Paola Toscani, Goolie Gianin, Norma Leight
Strong Fence for 10CP with 10slots. (Obtainable from Flaviano, Geranoa, Lashir)
(Note that you can only rent one fence at a time, so purchase a fence and plant it on your desired location,or put the fence in your storage/mount's inventory, then you can buy the next one)

You may have noticed that the smaller fences have a better slot to cp ratio, however you can only have a maximum of 10 fences.

1.1 Where to set up a fence.
Plants need water so plant your fence at a place with a high groundwater/a rainy area, everywhere around Heidel, Velia and most regions around Calpheon are perfect.
(Click on picture for full size)

2017-04-04_1632464236.jpg

 

2.What should i plant on my farm?

The most people plant crops for their own use (alchemy, cooking), so plan on what you can use it.
If you are only interested in quick profit, special strawberry is what you want, they are used to upgrade alchemy stones of life (since they give the most exp) and also for several things in cooking and therefore sell very well.

 

3. Loot you get from farming.

From Harvesting
You get 60-80 (70 average) normal crops, 40-60 (50 average) high quality and 20-40 (30 average) special quality crops from harvesting a plant that takes 1 slot, (this is doubled for crops that need 2 slots).
You also have a chance for extra loot that gives you an additional 1-5 crops.
If your plant is at 200% growth it will yield only 50%


From Breeding:
1-3 (1.6 average) seeds of the same quality or higher. (mostly 1 or 2 seeds getting 3 is rather rare).
Trashloot
Fruits, here a list of which fruits you get from which plants:
Fruit of Crimson Flame: Garlic, Hot Pepper, Pepper, Olives, Pumpkin
Fruit of Abundance: Sunflower, Strawberry, Garlic, Onion
Fruit of Nature: Carrot, Barley, Sweet Potatoe, Potatoe, Acacia, Dalvenia Alrea, Fig, Freekeh, Leccinum, Nolia, Nutmeg, Pie Mushroom, Purple Mushroom, Penestraria, Star Anise, Teff
Fruit of the Sun: Corn, Wheat, Tomato, Paprika, 
Fruit of Magic Power: Emperor Mushroom, Fortuneteller Mushroom, Hump Mushroom, Tiger Mushroom
Fruit of Enchantment:  (All herbs) Dry Mane Grass, Fire Flake Flower, Silk Honey Grass, Silver Azaleah, Sunrise Herb
Fruit of Perfection: Arrow Mushroom, Bluffer Mushroom, Cloud Mushroom, Fog Mushroom
Fruit of Destruction: Amanita Mushroom, Ancient Mushroom, Dwarf Mushroom, Ghost Mushroom, Sky Mushroom

From Removing Pests:
1-10 Weeds, Caterpillar, Spirit's Leaf, Female Kermes, Hard Black Crystal Shard, Sharp Black Crystal Shard

From Pruning:
1-10 Weeds, Twig, Monk's Branch, Hard Black Crystal Shard, Sharp Black Crystal Shard

 

4. What does Temperature, Humidity, and Groundwater mean?


Temperature = gives the % amount by how much your plant grows in 5 minutes.
The growth greatly varies if the temperature isn't optimal, so make sure that your plants have it nice and cozy.
(example special strawberry)
Good Temperature = 5h 12m 30sec
Cold Temperature = 16h 40m
Hot Temperature = 10h 25m
temperature.png

Humidity = gives the % chance that your plants will get blighted by Insects/Pests every 5 minutes.
(example special dry mane grass)
humi.png

Groundwater = is very important for your plants without water your moisture level will sink and if it reaches 0 your plants rot and will yield 50% less.
So always be sure to set up your fences at a place with enough water!

 

5. Do i need scarecrows, waterways, fertilizer?

Scarecrows keep birds away, but the damage the birds do is really insignificant, so you rather use that slot for another plant.
Waterways reduce the Water/Moisture consumption by 50% which is good in dry regions, however if you have enough groundwater you won't need them.
Fertilizer increase the growing speed of all nearby plants by 20% for a maximum of 1 hour.

 

6.Should i use workers to take care of my farm?

No, you should not, workers can't gather Hard/Sharp Shards, they pretty much always give you weeds and consume a huge amount of beer, i don't recommend it.

 

7. Do i get any benefits from a higher profession level?

The only benefit is a reduction in energy consumption, at master there is a 25% ~ chance to consume energy
There might also be an increased droprate in Hard/Sharp shards, but i don't have datas from lower skill levels so i'm not 100% sure about it.

 

If you have any questions, concerns or complains let me know.

Cheers, Not_Alice

One thing I noticed is that, if you put the fence in storage or on your mount, you can rent another one immediately without having to place it.

May save ppl a few trips.

I don't see any issue with this. The guides could help the community. There are so many outdated guides now, I think a little incentive to refresh them won't hurt anyone.

I'd even consider writing a guide - actually I did consider - especially knowing that they select the top 10 and there are less than 5 guides as of the deadline today so whatever bs u make u can win - but daamn I just don't care about having black desert pillows. Can't be bothered. Give me mere 1000 loyalties and I'll design you something mindblowing but pillows? Bah.

Many players create guides anyway. This gives an opportunity for those who created guides or want to create them to get recognition from the company and a little bonus on the side. I've created a few guides myself (for my guild website) with no thought of reward. Now, I have a chance of getting loot from them.

Please make the rewards better.

A lot of players could really use guides, but I don't see many people caring about a throw pillow, t-shirt, or hat >>

At least give people PEARLS for winning this contest!

This is the best idea for a contest, but the rewards are horrendous. I hope people make guides just to be nice, but there isn't going to be a lot of competition.

That being said, I really hope the idea of making guides (as event competitions) happens after every major patch! <3 That would be awesome!

Except they are making that official to have free work, so use it for them as if that was their own work, like for the "fan made trailer contest"

Community guide is always nice ( whatever the software or game ) but when a company look to "take ownership" of thoses... nope nope nope

They go below the simple "community help community" thoses guys just ask for free work they are going to use in a "money making situation" while the worker will earn jack sh#t

That's work stealing using naive fan devotion for the game. That's just a sneaky move because thoses guys are just greedy as F# to do the work themself ( so use money for that )

 

@CM_Yukimura that's a bit "eh... "  to like his answer when you certainly perfectly know what's that """"event"""" mean for the company you are working for. Especialy because of the disclaimer to own the right of the players creation. ;)

Basics of playing the black desert of the online

Black desert is a very big and overwhelming game for a lot of players so I gonna make a guide to fill people in on a lot of basics that they may want to know about

1.Leveling- from 1-55 follow the black spirit he shows you to a bunch of grind locations and if you grind for a bit more than is recommended in each spot, you should be able to reach 55 relatively quickly

56- go to sausans with friends or during off times so you don't get instantly deleted 

2.Gearing up- If you are just starting use heve armour- although grunils is good, you lose the entire reason for using it once you get 1 piece of boss armour or something so I just go with heve because a) they are cheaper and b) they allow room for progress. For main hand go krea or rosar depending on class and for off hand go what ever the class discord tells you

3.Nodes-  once you go through the BSQ you should rack a good amount of energy and CP- buy nodes around velia for the cereals and logs - the market place needs more cereals (potatoes,wheat,barley,and corn)

4.Gear upgrading- For armor you can upgrade to +5 100% and probably get to +8-10 without a sweat. For weapons you can get to +7 100% and can maybe get to +9-10 without a sweat. To get further You need to build fails stacks - fail stacks are made by failing an upgrade. I fail stack on my heve, for even if the upgrade goes through, its not that bad because I am using the armor anyways and will still be useful for me . For accessories however make sure you have a file full of puppy pictures because accessories get destroyed immediately if you fail. So if you are mentally ready and have lots of money , go for accessory upgrading.

Thats all new players really need to hop into BDO please give me the plushie

Here is my guide on Loading/Saving Character Templates

The forum post itself is quite long. I have a better version of it in a word document, but I could not upload it due to file size.

 :/

Loading/Saving a Character Template Guide:

 

How to load a Character Template

Are you tired of your current character? Do you want something new, something fresh? Have you seen a template online that you'd love to use for your character? Well look no further, this guide will help you get the template you deserve.


1.thumb.png.6f8e16f239f3a9adfc4ceac1c11d
 

Step 1: Acquire Template

Whether you find your template on www.bdotemplates.com or the Korean BDO content page, you can use them as long as they are for the same character class as the character you want to change.

Simply download the template file from the website (preferably a trusted website).

Once you've downloaded the template, copy the file into the Customization folder in your Black Desert Folder. The steps are shown below...

 

Step 2: Move Template into Customization Folder

In order to load the character template in the Beauty Shop in the game, you need to move it into the designated folder.

Here are the steps:

Step 3: Load the Template In-Game

Once you have the template saved in the Customization folder, open the beauty shop in the game.

Next, you will need to load the file in the Beauty Shop. Here are the steps:

A Fresh New Look!

There you are! Your character looks refreshing with this new look that you just adored when you found it online!

Applying a Template from the Beauty Album

Next, we will go over how to load a character template from the beauty album.

Below is the series of steps you will need to take...

Personalize!

Now that you have the character you want, you realize that you want to personalize it a bit. That's no problem! Simply edit the character like you would if you were creating your own!

ukukil.thumb.png.b881e7885370e3893498e0cAll Done!

 

Saving a Character Template In-Game

If you like a template, but don't have a coupon to apply it, you can save it so that you don't have to repeat the process or lose any changes you've made.

Here's how to do that:

2017-05-03_179518541.thumb.png.ca3b04bf62017-05-03_179526068.thumb.png.22f1dc2a7

 

Name the Template

You will want to name the template something that will remind you of its qualities and which class it applies to.

Now when you are ready to change your characters appearance, you can load the template you just saved.

Thank you!

Thanks for using this guide! I hope it was helpful!

I don't mind entering contest like this one and the fan made trailer contest. Honestly, I'd love to. But not at the expense of having the company essentially 'steal' it from you legally. If anything, I'd say the fan made trailers and the guides are gonna be put up in steam for their black desert online page which none of us can transfer our accounts to (cause they don't wanna give steam a cut of the pearls bought even though they have a probably more secure way of paying for it than their shitty paymentwall)

Not to mention that apparently your time is worth a ... t-shirt. That they threw at people at Gamescon. I could understand ingame rewards cause it'd be hard to consider that actual payment for doing something for a game you're doing but... a t-shirt?

Maybe I should submit a guide on "how to buy a t-shirt on 10 simple steps of buying pearls from Kakao".
