[Updated] Patch Notes - March 11th

Lol. You mean like the people who spend all day/every day trying to catch a beltfish, but find out that they needed a tongue sole instead with no indication of where one could be caught? Or the people who spend their time trying to get copper ore, only to find out that they needed copper ingot which can't be learned/discovered until you head into the next town? Also with no indication? 

Then you want to complain that I only care about my problem with the game only to then start complaining that I should care about other people's problems. Too funny.

This game doesnt play carebear. never has... probs never will. if you cant figure something out, move on to something else until you find info on it rather than deciding ON YOUR OWN to waste your entire day doing it then complaining about it. Much larger issues exist and will likely be addressed first. just how it is.

XP is already nerfed across the board, go on youtube and watch some videos of the KR version. its just nerfed even more now. and i really cant grasp why?

Yea they announced that XP from Korea to Here would be less, and we also do not have 200% or 300% XP weekend events like KR has.

Hey, When I try to swap names of my characters I cannot select any name that is under the Orwen server. I am trying to switch names of my character from Edan and Orwen but the name from Edan only shows up. How do I get the name under the Orwen server to show? Does "same region" mean same server or NA?

We seriously need a /inv command for party invites.

And a way to see what channel other players are on when clicking on their name in the chat.

You should have gotten the head start huh?

• Items traded 1:1 will become character bound and can not be sold anymore to the NPC, nor used for professions such as crafting/alchemy/cooking anymore (character bound)

I agree on making these unsellable, however these items should still be tradable.  If a guild leader is given food/potions they should be able to distribute these to their guild.

I commend the effort you put forth to block gold spammers. I'm ok with the limitations put in place to break it... I don't like that it has to be done or what is effected, but love the reason for it. 

EXP amount gained from Fat Catfishman, Rhutum Elite Brawler, Green Orc Skeleton Warrior, Calpheon Shrine Elite Warrior, Calpheon Shadow Guard was lowered.

 I appreciate the effort to help spread out the mob grinding points. Why reduce XP though? These guys are here for the loot drops in most cases. If we reduce the drop rate to where it's primarily an XP grinding location, people will move on.

Due to the increased "goldseller" population, we are beginning to put systems in place to suppress their market.

Players were able to abuse an exploit that allowed trading any amount of silver it through Potions. 
Payer A could purchase potions, trade them with Player B and B could sell them back to the NPC to gain silver out of it. (or other items)

• Items traded 1:1 will become character bound and can not be sold anymore to the NPC, nor used for professions such as crafting/alchemy/cooking anymore (character bound)

OH COME ON! the one on one trading needed to be opened up MORE not further restricted! What's so wrong with helping guild buddies and friends craft things they want? The system forces you to do global self sufficiency, where you have to make all the materials you want to use. I just wanted to specialize in certain types of materials and provide those to my friends.

I feel  you on this - but as soon as they let those gold sellers in, this game becomes P2W. I hate that it's such a problem. Ruins good ideas and fun.

Actually! With all these updates for gold spammers - why not reduce the energy cost to request a chatban!? I've done it twice and it hurts... hard!! I probably wont use the feature again.

I might have something that is helping. Check if the retarded Anti cheat is still open in your systemtray, the little X (white on blue). Close the program. It is starting to check files again at least. It was opening for me for some reason, but this helped.

So to my understanding you guys are nerfing EXP because players put in too much hard work and time into leveling that they were too high level? You're punishing players for grinding too hard. This is punishing the 80% of players who chose to play the game thoroughly and giving an advantage to the 20% of players who already grinded hard to 50+. Terrible.

Even less trading, yay....why don't you just make it to where traded items get a item debuff that negates the price of the item. things being untradeable is unnecessary...just keep money untradeable and you have nothing to worry about...

No.

Absolutely not.

The last thing we need is to give gold sellers more goods to trade to players for cash.

What IS needed is the ability to trade items 1:1 for the minimum marketplace fixed price.

That way I can buy the materials/ goods from my guildies without leeching off them completely, but still getting a great price. 

It still makes individual players put in effort on their part, but we don't have to deal with the hassle of waiting 15 minutes for the marketplace queue. (And being worried someone else will buy the low cost item before you)

I seriously think ALL trading should be set so that the minimum marketplace price is charged. Food, potions, a fishing rod, etc.

If players want to charge more than the marketplace minimum, they can still list their items through the marketplace. 

Further restrictions, like requiring a certain amount of guild contribution, could prevent abuse of this system. Make it something high that requires a guild member to have shown their loyalty to the guild. 

No gold seller will sink a month or two of guild contribution gameplay into ONE guild just to sell something to only its members.

Both people trading should be in the same guild, and both should have reached the "Trading Achievement" via guild contribution.

Ninja nerf to fishing by velia...............

Some of the lack of trading between players is great, some not so much.  It is hard to work as a guild when you can't trade and help fellow guildies out.  I am all for limiting the gold sellers.

  • Pet Breeding is disabled as the system is being revamped, once complete it will be enabled.

 

Due to the increased "goldseller" population, we are beginning to put systems in place to suppress their market.

Players were able to abuse an exploit that allowed trading any amount of silver it through Potions. 
Payer A could purchase potions, trade them with Player B and B could sell them back to the NPC to gain silver out of it. (or other items)

• Items traded 1:1 will become character bound and can not be sold anymore to the NPC, nor used for professions such as crafting/alchemy/cooking anymore (character bound)

After maintenance we will also offer the coupon to NA players who played on the 28th February between 08:00 UTC (opening) and 18:00 UTC (fixing the Serendia Issue) to submit a request for a "Character Name Swap between 2 existing characters" (Coupon can be found in the ACCOUNT tab on the website)

  • You may register your request on that page for swapping the names of two existing characters within the same region.
  • You must have two existing characters within the same region to be able to register a 'name swap'. 
  • Registration will open latest by end of 11th March and close  March 23rd at 08:00 UTC.
  • Name Swap will be applied on March 30th during the maintenance.
  • If a character, for which a 'name swap' has been registered is deleted within this process time, your request will fail and your coupon will be consumed.
  • Only one 'name swap' will be provided. A failed coupon will not be reimbursed.
  • Only your character's names will be swapped. This doesn't affect your character's progression.
  • Note: Please make sure the chosen names are correct. After your confirmation this process is irreversible!

 

Best regards

BDO Team

 

 

Great. Daum making BDO even less sandboxy. As if trading wasn't already bad. 

I refuse to believe you're okay with this as a fellow BDO player.

This seems like a bad practice. They should also compensate those who got placed in another server by offering a server switch with the  announced maintenance on the 30th. But it seems like "same region" is specific to server. I have all names visible if I chose to switch between the same server.
