Black Desert

BTW, have you seen the Kamasylve housing tour?

New expansion released this week.

Does anyone by chance have any of the permanent passes they don't plan on using?

Bought the 10$ version of the game. It is 50% off.

Anyone still play? Or which clan were we associated with?

First thing I'm seeing I might not like so far is the inventory... It's cramped.

Is there guides or pointers you guys can give to a new player? I might play 10 or so hours.

With just 10 hours i'd suggest just play around with the different classes and quests. You get storage increases by doing quests.

10 hours is just to get my money's worth. But if I don't feel the pressure of the cash shop, I might even play more. Heck, I played more in Tera than expected, and made possible to buy gametime with in game cash.

So, questions!

1 - can you buy stuff with in game cash that normally require money?

2 - how do you invest in the commerce in town with you gold bar?

1- I honestly don't know how the economy works anymore. It's changed 2-3 times since i spent significant time with the game.

2 - that's one part of the game i didn't get into. There's a whole town investment mechanic that's is available to do. I just didn't get into that. Most i did was create a workflow between settlements that made me enough money to buy the gear i wanted at the time. Which i think the mechanics of how that works has also changed.

Until you hit the soft cap in leveling (50) there's no real great need to do more than level up to that point. The cool thing is that all your gear and items are account based so the stuff you acquire at 50 you can immediately start using at level 1 on another character.

Big thing to know is that you get xp bonuses for doing things in a party and group up if you can. Don't be shy.

First things first is to find out if you like the combat or not because this is still a KR game and there is a lot of grinding. For me i loved the combat so much that it's the first game i actually enjoyed and looked forward to grinding.

Thanks for the information.

I played a little bit more. Gonna mix that game, Endless Space and Destiny.

I noticed they want you to be afk, but day long afk...

Is there a reason? Do they mined our computer? Or just to show the world to be "alive" ?

I don't like that it shows I'm playing the game in Steam. Is there a login page without Steam? Can it be unlink?

I was kinda planning to calculate my game time from the Steam app, but guess I'll need to forget about it.

I have no clue. I play the game outside of Steam. It's my understanding that some things along those lines were changed for Steam. I even think some of the world servers were Steam specific.

The game encourages AFK grinding. It's common for players to leave their machines on overnight grinding at something (like crafting). Other things like workers only do their work when you're logged in. Some dedicated players have machines that only run BDO 24/7. It's a weird mechanic I don't really understand and I haven't seen in other games.

I remember setting up my characters to fish or run horses overnight to level them up. I ended up quitting because I didn't have time to keep up with the grind and my friends had left me behind.
