Heya! Couple of Questions!

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Firstly, hey Everyone the name's Nathan! I've stuck to the same MMOs since I was a kid and I've always been searching around for something new to play and BDO has blown me away so far. Apart from it's sub-par voice acting and inconsistent (but still decent) localization I'm super impressed.

I do have one question, what is up with this severe pop-in? It's near unbearable in cities, this issue wasn't present in CBT footage but anything after CBT has it. Why ruin such a beautiful game with such a low draw distance? Surely there's nothing stopping the devs adding a slider for draw distance if this wasn't originally an issue?

Apart from that, any tips for a newbie? It's a rare occurrence for a game to overwhelm me with it's content but BDO has succeeded. What should be my top priority? Any tips, things I should do first? Thanks in advance!

Your top priority depends on what you want to do. Just do what ever you think is fun! thats why this game is so awesome.

I guess you can level-up and quest at the beginning? :D
I am not familiar with the game yet, but what else you can do at the beginning, if not level/quest/learn :D

Knowledge

Energy

Contribution Points

These should be the top 3 priorities. Don't worry about your character level. ..that will generate on its own. Character level doesn't mean alot in this game except with a couple core aspects at 45+. Your individual XP types ...combat xp for an example are more important. Combat XP determines your skill focus more than character level.

The more you have of the top three items I listed, the more smooth your game play will be as you progress, and you will have more flexibility. I would advise staying away from the  cash shop until you are in the game for a bit.

Bag space can be frustrating, but your black spirit quests increase your personal bag space. Be sure to do those, don't hold out on them and wait to do them at once if you are big on bag space. Storage space in your cities also increase your warehouse capacity, which can free up your personal bag space as well.

These would be main pointers that I'd give starting out. Also, because this game is very much about figuring things out. If it takes you more than 5 mins, google it, ask a friend or channel chat, or take a break and work on anything else.
