I hear a lot of good and bad things

13 posts in this topic

Posted

While my game is downloading i was wondering what statements are more or less true?

People have stated that the game is lacking in gear variation

PvE content is easy and can be entirely solo'd

Most of the game is farming materials (i don't mind this so much)

So those are the most commonly stated bad qualities i hear, but i'm sure you guys could clarify.

All true, but if you get in a good guild it all gets much better.

 

Being more useful in GvG motivates me to grind, which i hate grinding.

 

I hear theres supposed to be a big update with challenging stuff though, they are just holding it back to let everyone sort of settle in.

1. Yeah there are some different armor sets but the visual look only changes a little bit...For a better look you need to buy costumes for real money

2. It's easy but the game is more pvp based anyway

3. Yes  that's true

 

But not everything is bad...some people love the way it is and i personally love grinding for example

:)

Play it to know it, the game screenshots and even HD youtube videos don't justify the game.
When you play it, then you'll know :)  Tip: try it with surround sound headphones. And play in 'high' settings if u can.

There isn't a whole lot of that in BDO, especially compared to some other MMO's.

Where BDO excels is as a virtual life game. Your character feels very much like a resident of the game world, rather than a tourist at a themepark, and the world itself is very interactive.

How coordinated is the PvP? Or is it a zergfest like guild wars

All true, but despite that, the game is really fun to play. Also, it is P2W, but still fun to play. Just get ready to open the wallet for supreme tactical advantage.

I know its an old reference - but BD is very much like Ultima Online - you decide what you want to do, instead of just following a quest tracker all the way to endgame (yes, you CAN do that, but you'd be missing a monstrous portion of the game).

There is no vertical loot progression - its all horizontal - with some pieces being better for certain things - suited better for certain classes or playstyles. This is where the visuals come into play. Since there is no vertical loot progression, there is no reason to make 'late game' loot look more impressive. Also, they make their money off cosmetics, so theres that.

PVE is pretty much soloable - but its more fun to do it with people - late game bosses need groups.

Yes, much of the game is a virtual medieval world - you can craft just about everything, from weapons, to pet food to ships to wagons - the production system is very deep and very cool - and if you really get into it - you may completely forget theres a combat system... ;)

Cant speak for pvp because Ive been too busy lording over my workers...

Dude, even when considering the cash shop options, this game has what I'd call zero customization.

Game has maybe 0.00004% the variety in clothing as for example The Secret World, another B2P game where cash shop costumes only cost less than a third than they cost here, and the free options number in the hundreds.

Buying costumes in this game is just dumb, unless you're a ranger as the Bern costume is actually fantastic unlike literally everything else.

Yeah i know, i wouldn't suggest buying costumes too because of their price and look.

I hope they will change the amount of available armors.

And in my opinion seeing your character having visual progress is important but doesn't apply to black desert.

 

But i still love Black desert :D
