Can I also just point out that the excuse of having an active RL doesn't apply that well in BDO when a LOT of grinding/gathering/etc can be done while AFK? In fact, it's probably better for your sanity in some cases. >.> Instead of staring how you travel back and forth with horse/wagon all day or waiting for fish all day. Goes a bit faster, sure, but this game offers specifically a lot of options for being able to grind even while in AFK-land. Lots of other MMO's require you to be active to get anything at all. Those are the MMO's where a no-lifer gets the biggest advantage, not here.

In short: Silly argument is silly, BDO offers plenty options for both sides to at least decently keep up with stuff.

God I hope for DP and AP fixes for the musa because I put everything into this char and I cannot progress.

 

Nothing wrong with DP / AP Musa. Already tested it multiple times in PvP & Arena.

Stop whining about it :)

Many people have jobs(me included), lives, families, etc outside of gaming.  You, no offense, sound like one of the current mindset of generation players wanting shit to come easily.  Sorry buddy but some of us actually enjoy challenge, regardless of whatever way it comes.  The current flock and last 10 or so years of mmo's that  have come out have basically handed you shit on a silver platter for hardly anytime invested in your character. If that's what you prefer, there's plennnnnty of games to go play that offer that. Does RNG sometimes suck? Shit yes but deal with it.  It is what it is. 

That's not the point he's making. The only challenge in BDO is how much time you are willing to put in to the game. EVERY task in the game can be solved if you throw enough time at it. What he means is, we would prefer things that are actually difficult to do, that require skill to achieve, but dont take weeks of grinding and hoping you get a lucky hit from the RNG. You are right, players that want an easy time can go and have that in other MMO's, but so can those that just want to spend lots of time grinding stuff until the right thing drops.. pick pretty much ANY Asian MMO and you are right there. Time invested is not the same as skill or challenge.

 

When you see a player in BDO who has the highest AP/DP stats and all that, it doesnt make me think.. "ooooh they're skillful, thats impressive" it makes me think.. "must be a student with a shit ton of spare time".

I'm interested in grinding and especially gathering afk. Safely ofc.

Please explain.

It applies to ANYTHING in life. And a game is PART OF REAL LIFE, you aren't teleported in a virtual world with different rule set where time has no meaning.

The best workers are those who can complete a task (in a proper way) in less time than others.

Likewise, the best players can manage their time better, plan ahead, be patient, etc. and reach a goal faster or better than others with a similar amount of time at their disposal. That's a challenge that makes sense.

Workers can do a lot of the gathering quite safely while you're AFK, hell, even while you might be AFK-training your horse or running circles with trade goods to up your strength. AFK fishing works decently enough for money, etc. The only thing you can't really grind while AFK is combat stuff, though for me at least, combat's been a smaller portion of my daily things than other things. And to be clear, I mean grinding combat exp or the likes. Plenty of gear can be gotten by just investing enough money in it, and that can be gotten while AFK.

if you think there is nothing wrong with Musa AP/DP, you still have to admit that melee classes could do with a DP boost to make them viable classes compared to the ranged classes and to stop one hit kills from bosses?

Kzarka is top, Liverto is mid.Why?
Bonuses. Liverto has useless bonuses for Warrior/Valkiria and (in my opinion) for other classes.

Atk Speed and cast speed are better (2 bonuses vs 1 bonuses).
For example - Valkiria needs atk speed and also cast speed.

reading this guys comments makes me cringe, what an absolute turd :D

It's simple, before you buy a game, you should look whats it about. If you don't like it, dont buy it.

Play it for fun, if you like grinding and hardworking on your gear.

It's not fun at all if you don't like that. Then don't play.

They generally post them closer to the end of the maint. They'll be up soon, I'm sure.

Actually Valkryie doesnt use attack speed at all its all cast speed. Even if you think the crit on Liverto is useless you can't ignore the 10 AP and two crystal slots.

6 hours kinda sucks

I've only had the game for 10 days so I'm yet to experience this type of down time. 

Also I'm in Australia so I got home from work at 5:30pm, maintenance started at 6pm and not due to finish until 12am. There goes my plans for this evening.

Yeah I know there's no point in complaining, but this is bad timing for Aussies.

Greetings, fellow Aussie!  I feel your pain. Part of living in an under-represented timezone is having to deal with our prime time being ultimately unprofitable compared to others, not to mention entirely incompatible with the work lives of those actually running the show. Like you, I never complain because I know it's unavoidable. That doesn't stop it from being disappointing that we operate one prime-time slot behind other timezones every week. I play fairly casually, I have no idea if it's something that will end up impacting the competitiveness of Oceanic guilds at some point but let's hope not!
