    Disappointed but not surprised

    Yeah I know the feeling. Streaming just two of them is hard enough but to choose between three? Na. I may get TD2 later on down the road but I good with these two.

    There are more than enough players online to justify continuous content updates for Xbox from PC. Every time I log into STO there are at least 5 instanced zones where ever I am in the game. The point is you argued that there are no P2W games on Xbox that are successful. I simply provided you with one example. I don't care for the business model myself but I have spent $ in that game to get stuff that I didn't get with the base game. BDO will be no different. It is up to the individual player on how much they choose to spend not forced to spend.

    Game Guides/Useful Sites

    Good to know. I'll add that to the list. I know there are tons of videos out there that cover these topics but I wanted to use static information for those that may not be in an environment to watch videos. Thanks for the info.
  4. Thought I would create a thread with a list of great guides and websites that I have found useful for BDO. I highly recommend new and returning players to look over the various guides to learn or familiarize yourselves with BDO. New players will have a hard time figuring out what to do in BDO or how to do it. These guides will make it 1000% easier to get started, provided you take the time to look over the information. I take no credit for any of these guides or websites, I am just bringing them together in one spot. =======Life Skills/Money Making/Mounts/Pets/Other Guides========== Eminent's Complete Comprehensive Life Skills Guide for BDO Another great website that, not only has Eminent's guides broken down, but also provides countless other game guides on Black Desert Online. They also have a Knowledge Locator, interactive Node Investment Calculator, and guides on sailing/crafting. Grumpygreen's Guide and Tools Collection ==============Item Data Bases/Build Tools/Skills/Other Guides===================== These next two sites are a couple of my favorites and most used sites. Each one is a complete item codex/database of every item in the game. They also have interactive skill trees that allow you plan out your character builds based on character levels or pvp/pve focused. To help with things like farming, item details show you every detail on that crop and best ways to grow. There are also world boss calendars with countdowns to next spawn (this is based on PC right now) Black Desert Database and Black Desert Online Codex ================================All Direct Links====================================== Eminent's Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mCpycYxOrgMWQZscI-dJa3gknSDZgZERcxetXJE46XU/edit Grumpy's: https://grumpygreen.cricket/index.html Black Desert Database: https://bddatabase.net/us/ Black Desert Online Codex: https://bdocodex.com/us/ ======================RESERVED FOR UPDATES AND ADDITIONS==========================

    Just curious

    There are a ton of them, scattered all over the world.

    Will the ultimate edition be enough?

    Its enough to hold you over for the version that is launching. Ultimately, you would still spend some money on extra inventory slots, weight increases, and pets. That will be further down the line though.

    Wish I would have known

    Totally agree with this. Just want to add, Liverto isn't a bad weapon to go for if you can get it without purchasing on the marketplace. The only problem with Liverto is enhancing it. It will be way easier to enhance yuria's as they are way easier to come by. Trading: It is important to remember that you connect nodes in a chain to different areas/cities. You can still sell trade goods to Trade Managers but at a severe cost reduction (30% value I believe it is) and you will not receive a distance bonus. XP Scrolls: Save them. Burn those when you start to get to higher grinding areas that will slow your progression. Don't waste them below level 40, 35 at the earliest. Don't activate them until you arrive to your grinding area as the timer starts where ever your use the scroll. Travel can take some time in early game. Farming: I could write a book on farming, as that is my primary life skill that I focus on. Luckily I don't have to as there is already a very thorough guide: Eminent's Farming Guide All Life Skills: Again, here is a large 260 page comprehensive guide on all things Life Skills. Take the time to read over this guide before launch to give you an idea on how and what you wish to focus on. Eminent's Life Skill Guide for BDO Any questions, feel free to send me a message.

    Yeah I was on the fence with Anthem but I decided to preorder so I could try the VIP Beta. Will determine if I keep it or not. I agree it is a bad release slot but it is what it is I suppose. I just can not pass on BDX. I would have preferred a January launch.
  9. You are trying to argue the monetary value of the packs based solely on your own needs/wants. Example, you find that the horse costume is not important to you. That doesn't change the actual monetary value of that item. The fact is, the monetary value of the items included are way better in the pre-order packs vs individually buying each item from the pearl shop. Doing so will cost you more in the long run.

    Conspiracy about preorder and dates

    yeah ESO launch was a fiasco.

    The joke is on you PA

    PC version was the same price during release. In fact, they still have those packages (except for the Conqueror's Edition, which was the Ultimate for PC) on steam. The $9.99 version is just the game with no extras and that came a long way after release. There was no way it was going to be released on Xbox for $10.

    Ultimate Pack breakdown.

    Yep, saved all of my xp scrolls on pc as well. There is no need to use them right away. 72 hr head start is less than the 90+ for the Conqueror's Edition but there is also 500 more pearls. You can get a massive amount done in 72 hours. I was well into farming in half that time during the beta.

    lol then you obviously haven't played Star Trek Online on Xbox. People shell out hundreds on lock boxes.
