    First....Warrior gang

    My first character on KR was a warrior. Even though we were awful pre-awakend (valks with no burst) at the time it's still the class I've had the most fun with overall.

    Grinding Etiquette in BDO

    Once you dip below 0 karma and go negative youll be "red". This goes all the way down to -1million karma. You loose karma by flagging up and killing players , their boats, or their horses.

    What Server Are you playing on

    Its life now a days. Everyone picks a side and hiveminds Into their ideology, making anyone who differs in opinion in any way an enemy. The west is in the brink of another civil war between sjws and functioning human brains. Stupidity is rampant. People are afraid to talk because lives get ruined over phone calls, and the oppressed have become the oppressors. All in all the scientists sit back and build our bomb shelters for the coming war. Welcome to the US 2019. The cancer is spreading.

    Theres an npc's (tavern in Velia) who will give you the location of any other player for a little silver at any time. Happy hunting!

    Thats unfortunate. Thinking back now I haven't done bosses since I got my full boss set on MENA. The time frame about lines up. I see PA is taking the wow approach to things here, sad to see. You cant have a "Bad" experience and get upset if you have NO experience at all.

    Strikers alot like DK in WOTLK. Mystic is like the Lich King himself o.0. Need a competent 25 man to kill it.

    Ive dropped ult blizzards on declared guilds at dim tree all the time. You can kill a deced guild anywhere as long as theyre not on protection. If an alliance doesnt want you to have a node. You wont.

    All we can really do is perma deck the twats guilds until they kick the guy bombing. If you get your guild decked by an alliance you become hated quick, when your entire guild can no longer do world bosses or hold a node.

    Launch Plans.

    True. Zerks mobility is screwed sadly on xbox though due to how ultimate evasion works. All zerk movement combos (outside lava piercer) needs ult evasion but its a double tap directional skill. This means you have to hit the joystick twice in the same direction in some unknown time frame (extremely variable). It only worked like 1/5 times for me in Beta. You dont know how long to leave the joystick over before pushing the 2nd time, if you pull the stick back, how far you have to push it / pull it back, ect. Super unreliable. This sadly kills zerks mobility.

    The proper treatment of karma bombers:
  11. For anyone looking to start with the ultimate pack I would like to help you get the most for your $ out of the items included. Here are my suggestions / tips on how to use this pack effectively: The Costume: Your costume will be character bound (if it follows the standard of other versions). Make sure to open this on your main character. This will grant you a combat exp buff (among other lesser buffs) and save you a 30$ purchase further down the road. The 90 day value pack: The main draw of this pack is that you will receive a lesser tax on selling items in the market place (meaning you'll make more overall silver). It also has some smaller features that differ based on region, for example some versions include Merves pallet (unlimited dyeing of items with all colors) while some reigns sell this separately. If you are looking to play the game heavily this is a must have, and starting with 3 months is a great boost. The 2 pets: Pets are essential for grinding in BDO and getting a small boost in the beginning can make all the difference. These 2 pets should hold you over until you begin grinding for silver (around Calpheon). I would recommend sticking with these 2 pets, and buying one additional t1 pet (with some of the pearls given in the pack) as the first thing you do in game once you have access to the store. Run with these 3 pets until you begin the silver grind ~lvl50 then look to upgrade to 3 T3 pets (with your remaining pearls). As we gain access to Media you may want to look into grabbing a 4th and 5th T3 pet once you begin the Sausan grind. The Horse: The horse will be decent for leveling but quickly become useless (unless you hit the horse lottery off the bat). Once you are grinding silver your first major purchase should be a horse with Instant Accell, Drift, and Sprint. Keep your eyes on the horse market (I recommend checking every time you bank) for a horse with this skill combination. This horse will speed up your travel time significantly, decreasing down time in every aspect of the game. Horse Armor / Wagon skin: Both cosmetic, no real function 10 x exp scrolls: New players will be tempted to blow these out of the gate to get to 50 quickly :AVOID this trap: Save these scrolls until you are set up to grind silver in a solid rotation. You will get way more mileage out of these once you have your weight upgrades, a fast horse for banking, and a rotation where you can kill endlessly for the entire duration of the scroll. Horse Flute: Allows you to call your horse from further away. Useful but by no means necessary. A nice quality of life item. Storage maid: You can lace this item in any player owned house (bought with CP). The maid will allow you to bank one item every so often in the bank of the region the house is located in. These are particularly useful in mass (20+ maids) to extend grind trips indefinitely (limited only by gear repairs) but this method is expensive. Having one will allow you pull potions from storage remotely in the case of node wars which can be invaluable. * Note * You can pick up the maid and move it to a home in a new reigon at any time to allow yourself access to the bank in that region. 3000 Pearls: Without seeing the prices of items there are a few recommendations on how to spend this initial batch. First you will want to buy a 3rd pet right out of the gate. Having 3 pets from the start means you are both collecting all loot as you level and you are leveling up those 3 pets, making the more efficient once you begin silver grinding. If you plan to grind heavily , and know that your current character will be you main, feel free to grab all of your weight upgrades. The more you can carry the longer your grind trips will be meaning less downtime and more profit. *note* Weight is character bound. Only do this if you plan to stick to only this character. If you do not buy your weight you will have plenty of pearls left by the time you hit 50. At this point you will want to dump these into buying more pets(of the same category) to smash together. Your goal at this point will be to get 3 T3 pets. (eventually aiming for 5 T3 pets by the time Media launches). You can go for T4 pets if you dont mind spending large sums of money for a slight advantage (roughly 100$ USD per T4 pet). T4 pets will pick up loot instantly instead of waiting a second to begin collecting. Other than the instant grab T3 pets have the same pickup rate as T3 pets. And the best for last 72 hours of early access: This is easily the most valuable thing we get with the pack. For this section though I will tell you to do some research, create a plan. Jump on to one of the PC versions and figure out what is possible with a new character of your class in 72 hours. This will set you ahead of the pack by miles (the snowball effect). I wont be giving out my plan here on the forums but highly suggest you create your own. I hope this helps some of you interested in buying this pack. See you all in there!

    Will EXP accumulate and carry over

    Node Wars

    Im sadly in this boat as well. Working regularly 9PM - 7-9 AM M-F. Always have to join a guild gunning for Saturday / Sunday nodes.

    NA - be ready for the extremely aggressive AP monkey builds. Wouldn't have it any other way.

    Will EXP accumulate and carry over

    We come over for the fresh start. Executing a new gameplan to be more efficient and effective with a fresh slate. The race out of the gate the the best part of any MMO by far, which is why subs/ playerbase/ ect always declines heavily after the first month or 2 of every launch. Its the same idea as seasons or leagues in ARPG's.

    Will EXP accumulate and carry over

    Ive been stuck at hardcaps on MENA twice. Unfortunately the exp past 55.99 will be wasted and does not carry over. You will still get skill points and silver though from grinding on hardcap. If we get vanilla content (with beta exp rates) 50 should be possible in roughly 6 hours with a solid gameplan and no distractions. 50-55 will slow down considerably. If you can comfortably farm ser shrine on rotation without interruptions your probably looking at around 80 efficient grind hours 50-55. This can be done in a week if your dedicated ( ~11 - 12 hour days). If you are planning to quest , do guild events / quests, take breaks ect expect a longer process. Hope that helps and sets your expectations up for whats to come.
  17. Hey guys, There is a possibility that we will be hard capped at 50 for some time on launch. If that is the case, being that +15 gear is easy to replace if broken on death, there will be no drawback to playing in permanent pvp mode and going negative. If we are hard capped I will be gearing heavily the first week (including early access), then going -1mil karma and mass murdering everyone I see in any relevant endgame grind spots until the hard cap is lifted. If you a heavy grinder and hate being gated (for no reason) and would like to partake in the fun on launch toss me a PM in game. We would be the "pirates" of the game. Good fun. ~Harming

    Pre awakening Zerk is just as fast if not faster than witch and wizzard on the grind. Most people wouldn't think of it but you can abuse grapples accuracy to kill deep purple. For example in the BETA at the cap of 40 i was comfortably solo grinding calph shrine with a +15 main hand and a +7 saiyer by abusing my grabs. Zerk also has their spin to win on CD to fast clear weak mob packs along with BWS for heavy damage and a spamable knockdown for down damage on their Raging Thunder for high DP mobs. They also have amazing pack to pack mobility with lava piercer, ult evasion + headbut movement combinations. If youve followed server progression its always been a zerk thats # 1 growth until awakenings launch. Pre-awakend sorc struggles on the grind due to her kit being primarily single target or frontal cone. She can take black wave for slightly better clear but it wastes CP , taking away from her pvp focused abilities (which is the reason to roll sorc before awakenings). She has decent travel time between packs but may take 4-5 abilites to clear the pack where zerk spins through and wipes it instantly. With awakening this all changes. Zerk's awakened damage isnt much better than his pre-awakened kit (since they nerfed cannon spam farming). Sorc on the other hand gets great aoe damage and debuffs with violation / turnback slash (they have some downtime though due to mana issues when farming large numbers of low DP packs). Sorc really shines at this point on highd DP mobs such as Hysteria / Gyffin. She has the highets PVE dps with back attacks (and a spinning blade taunt to pull agro) and the fastest clear speeds for some of the best grind spots in the game. They also stay one of the top 1 v 1 pvp classes after awakening. Sadly zerk has lost most of its protection and the grab chain has been removed from its kit, making it all around mediocre in every aspect of the game once all classes awaken,

    Yeah my older content went with the ban. I could remake this but ive honestly re-written it over and over. Changing it up today again knowing that well be able to hit 55 ( hopefully in ~80 hours if i play my cards right). The only thing im currently torn on is Zerk vs Sorc. Both have their advantages going in. One will grind much faster, one will stay relevant until late game.

    Dark Knight

    I love Dk's look and animations and playstyle sooo much. Its so squish tho =( Its my favorite all around looking class by far.
  21. Harming

    Shudad Armor

    Definitely agree, the old one wouldn't allow you to dye certain parts. It never quite looked right in game. Hopefully the new one fixes that issue.
  22. Harming

    Why is it a race to progress?

    Its actually statistically more profitable to dump your cp in to a floating container and farm plots. You gain a higher sharp / hard yield passively than gathering and can grind / farm consistently without breaking rotation in most major grind spots. This brings in both more overall silver and a steady stream of hards and sharps for upgrades. But every ones free to do what they want. This community isnt a fan of facts, or numbers, or testing, or science

    PLEASE DO NOT PUT A LEVEL CAP IN AT LAUNCH

    Capping combat experience to 50.99 does not help or hinder anything youve said here in any way whatsoever. If you think it helps you in any way, please let me know and we can discuss it.
