  1. That's my point bud, playing bdo becomes a shade of gray.. As I said I still play but not obsessively and only when I'm in the mood, I'll often spend a week or two on other games and come back to bdo when I'm ready. The endgame in bdo has always been the same, being able to beat people in pvp for the best grind spots tou can or best passive income from nodes ect. All the gear and grinding is just a means to that end. The point i was trying to make is you can achieve a decent pvp level by playing constantly for a shorter period or sporadically over a longer period, almost everyone starts out going hammer and tongs to get high fast, most burn out and quit, the ones who realise you can play casually after a point t and still be competitive with 80% of other players are the ones that in my opinion get the most fun from bdo. The top 1 or 2 % of players work like a dog to stay there and ...it doesn't last , the meta will change and screw you. Also there is always something to worm on if you want to.. always another life skill to learn and get good with, or a new item to work on upgrading or aspect of the game to help new players with. If there are people out there with full pen gear that are gurus in every lifeskill and a to of money left fair play but I haven't met them. You asked what keeps me going I enjoy getting better slowly, actually trying all the different **** to do, not just what makes the most money or levels me fastest. Also in time some of the people who have got bored and left may well come back when new content drops.. but at that point will be well behind the turtles that have kept inching the gear score forward.
  2. These posts make me chuckle.. all very black and white... you play bdo or you dont. I still play bdo. I also play other games. I realise to be in the top guilds or the top teir pvp you need to be on every hour of every day... but that's soul destroying. I grind when I feel like it, I lifeskill when I'm in the mood, I afk stuff if im not playing anything else for a break. If you stop trying to be the top 1 or 2 % of players and realise you'll surpass most players by casual play over a year or 2 than constant 24 hr grinding over 6 months then burn out and never play again lol Its bdo what's the rush.
  3. I wouldn't say musa is simple or beginner friendly.. in pve musa is a very fast clearer and with the dash can zip between mobs with ease , but in pvp you need to be far more tactical, switching between pre awakened and awakened and knowing when to zip in and out as musa is quite squishy. Haven't used a striker but from what I know they are far easier to master for pvp but less efficient in pve. And as rocket said you gonna be spending 1000+ hours with a class, pick one you enjoy playing over the meta which changes.
  4. Enjoy... come back with caphras stones
  5. For the love of god please add these in next update.. We have been waiting FAR TO LONG. Many thanks
  6. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.xcloud This is the app you need fyi
  7. Just for anyone that's interested, I've started using the xbox game streaming app to stream to my phone while at work to refresh afk processing and fishing and it works great. Doesn't seem to data heavy atm and reasonably playable, tho I wouldn't wanna farm to test it atm. Think if your part of the preview program anyone can set it up, although it's not quite the same as xcloud it works well enough for life skilling on the go
  8. Yeah I play on the one s and seems to be running much smoother. Caphras stones when?
  9. That sucks was hoping it would be at least daily. Seems hardly worth doing the boss just for the other crap she drops
  10. So yesterday I picked up the quest from ?glenda the white witch (or whatever her name is) and did the boss and handed in the broach thing..all good. Tried again today but glenda has no quest for me? Was that a 1 off as I did he boss and got another broach but cant see the quest to match it with?
  11. I think you may be fighting players the are far superior in gear skill points and knowledge based on your post. Working on getting tou level and gear score up before fighting players.. this game is not balanced in a way fights are fair.. you need to pick your battles and fight in your weight (gear score) class
  12. We need these stones in soon, the RNG for upgrading to tet is horrible so another route through grinding would be much preferable.
  13. Pre awakened.. gale rising storm and divider and dragons claw Post awakened.. fiery angel, cross cut, below the belt and crust crusher
  14. Bump. Still need more active players
  15. Yawn ..more deathcherub drivel about pvp. Enjoy the game, all of it.
  16. Would love to see this cross platform..bigger player base is only ever a plus to the players and tbh I think cross platform between Sony and microsoft is their way forward if they want to compete with stadia when it launches
  17. Please implement a single button press to collect the money from all sold items on the CM, no point to collecting each one individually..also a bug puts you back at the top of a very long list after each item. I realise this is a small issue, but would be a nice quality of life improvement
  18. Very relaxed guild able to help you but let you do your own thing at the same time
  19. Just wanted to publicly say congratz to alpha in the EU winning their war and GG to wildhunt. Was a really great fight from my point of view...which was often dead. Anyone that didn't get a crack at seige wars can't recommend them enough and if people are looking for guilds to actively participate in the big battles... the symphony and the above would be good shouts 😎
  20. Never said you did swear, also good luck with the war.. I hope to be murdering your toons very soon 😎
  21. Too open to abuse .. bigger guilds would equip their new players better than people who have worked their ass off for the gear. And just for perspective ..I'm in a fairly big guild so it would benefit me and my guildies.. but small guilds would become irrelevant fast
  22. The game is pvp.. all the pve and life skills are building blocks for pvp.. If you don't enjoy it that's fair enough but the game is set that if I'm harming an area and find you farming there too stealing the mobs we gonna have a fight for the resources. If you win gg, if not switch servers or find a empty spot
