Well you are helpful...

Seems to me having the option to press buttons without having to remove my thumb from the thumb stick sounds good...

Welcome to the BDO Forums.

But seriously, if you wanna buy a controller and play that way, go ahead.

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Controller will do fine for melee classes, the biggest problem is hotbar access. 

An Xbox controller gives you 10 actual buttons that are mapable. You will need to bind:

Jump 

Left click

Right click

Confirm(enter)

R

E

Q

F

V

And depending on class, 3-5 hotbar actions, more if you need to pop elixirs every 5mins.

It's hard to map everything you need and play solely from a controller.

Also a mouse will always be more precise for aim.

If your intent is just farming or bosses, a controller may be much more relaxing, but if you want to PvP at a high level, K&M will always perform better.

Edit: you could argue that you don't need to map V for the black spirit bail out, but when that "oh shit" moment happens, you likely won't get to the V key fast enough. And if you can, why even bother with the controller.

Yeah, $150. Not worth for bdo imo.

I have one, but I don't use it for BDO. If you just want a controller just go with a cheap one. It's a good, quality, solid controller but I don't recommend a controller for a game like BDO anyway. I suppose you could make it work, but I feel you'd be limiting yourself at the more engaging activities. If you just want the controller just to have the controller like I did, then by all means go ahead and purchase it. It's a great piece of hardware Just don't buy it with the intent of solely using it for BDO, or any MMO that doesn't have controller friendly setups. I'm not sure how good or bad BDO's controller option is, but I've never bothered with it in the options. Good luck.

I only switch to controller to mindlessly farm titles. Ranger on a horse makes it really easy to do so and I find controllers to be less demanding on my hands.

Except the GameCube controller.

Cause 20xx.
