>What is BDO?
Black Desert Online is an MMO by Pearl Abyss currently in development on an English language port for western audiences, with additional changes. It is a sandbox MMORPG that features action-oriented combat, open world PVP territory control, trading, player housing, and more.
>What is the difference between the KR/JP builds and the NA/EU builds?
The NA/EU builds are using a new, Buy-to-Play model.
The KR/JP builds of the game are free to play.
The NA/EU builds also do not have the blader/plum/kunoichi/ninja classes.
>What are the details of the NA/EU buy-to-play model?
You pay upfront, 30 dollars (minimum) and there is no subscription fee. There will be a cash shop, which allows you to buy cosmetics, pets, and vouchers for things like skill resets. You also get access to the next (and possibly final) beta test (CBT2) by pre-purchasing.

For those who can't wait for NA/EU or want to test the game before spending money:
>KR Installation Guide
>JP Installation Guide
They're one of the first classes they ever designed and there's been a lot of iteration since then. The game has just changed since those days.
They're also one of the first classes to get an awakening weapon, and it's pretty good but you don't get that until level 56 and we may not even have awakening weapons on NA launch
If you want to be a warrior fucking do it though. It'll be fine.
plz advice on best way to format this
is 2 pictures fine per armor set? how about cropping and editing em together?
Why the fuck do I have to install all of this shit from the official BDO installer if I just have to delete it and replace it with the torrented game folder anyways?
channels being "servers" on the same server that you can teleport to (eg. district 5 to district 1 to international district... except it isn't a lobby town, it's for the entire world)
nvm don't worry about it, no channels on NA.
>nvm don't worry about it, no channels on NA.
don't be like that, I really like this games look and fighting. any thing to explain this further?
so if I make a character, instead of him bound to "Illidan" I can move him to different servers" riiiiight?
so that other guy is right, its like GW, everything is has it own "channels" they are all instances...
I guess this make sense. the graphic is pretty high and we can't have 100v100 ppl on screen, i guess.
never a big fan of mass pvp, it always end with who has the bigger #. I know alot of ppl on here enjoys it but i'll just ignore it 75% of the time.
disappointed that its not like a server with a max cap of like 4k ppl. I might still put down the cash for some role playing. The game is very pretty
Here's the Valkyrie appearances.
I'm missing one armor set (Barth/Dobart), and don't have boss armor.
Hercules and Hebe are identical to Luck.
I'll do the other classes
Anyone else /cautious/ here?
Not going to preorder shit because DAUM ruined this game. I'll wait and see if they can fix it for NA/EU release, because the game was actually really good before DAUM got their greedy asiojewish hands on it.
Missed something or witch has one fewer unique appearance
aren't they both mmo with great fighting mechanics?
Fucking shit! My download was at 78% and then my stupid windows decide to make a fucking restart and I didn't realized it because fucking anime. Geez I'm mad. FUCK YOU BILL GATES WAITING FOR LIKE 6 FUCKING HOURS!!!
The process I went through was download the launcher from the website, let it start the download so it makes the install folders, then deleted everything in there and copied over the torrent files. Then just start the launcher back up and it'll try and redownload any missed files/patch you up to the latest version.
Both Korean MMOs which are getting hyped lately. Besides, I can say I like chocolate cake more than I like steak.
There's no rule that things need to be identical or even similar for them to be compared. I wasn't giving a review or some critical analysis, just saying out of these two "hot topic" games, I prefer this one.
you clearly have not played this game much, there is shit to do after the initial grind, as with all sandbox games, if your not playing this game mainly as a waifu simulator your going to be sorely let down.
Kek. I find it more fun to decorate my house and go fishing than the theme park quests from BnS and then all there is to do is PvP.
m80, this is the best shit to happen to waifu and life sim RPGs since Skyrim loaded with mods.
doesn't change the fact that this game is void of endgame content anyone who tries to defend that is in denial and comparing bdo to bns is retarded they are totally different games.
That's because the game is still fresh. They're adding a fuckton of content with every major update, and only 1/2 of the full map has been revealed. The engine is flexible so they can always improve upon the game's mechanics.
Yeah, but when you can't create your own what the fuck do you do?
Farming mobs, items, etc., playing preset house, playing limited guild wars..., is a very limited form of sandbox. It'll get dull after 2-3 months.
beautiful white woman sorcerer etc.
And it's awful for solo/small groups.
Takes forever to achieve anything (in BDO at least you can get a run-down looking house within your first hour of play.
Not to mention no waifu sim unless you count the character you create which you rarely if ever see after creation.
I mean, I guess there's also Perpetuum (mech based Eve clone), the Repopulation (no idea, since it's not out yet, but most indie MMOs fail) and Lord British's Shroud of the Avatar which looks like a game from 2002.
Money isn't the problem for Above & Beyond, the studio making The Repopulation. The problem is the company running Hero Cloud ran out of money and The Repopulation, unfortunately, has a contract with them.
>Near unlimited character creation
>Can't make a unique female face that doesn't look like shit or like the default look
Just keep practicing m8, you'll find something good.
Also try mixing base hair colour with different hair ends. You can get some nice colours that aren't on the palette that way.
shouldn't have included it in the poll
I hope so. I understand if people get attached to their characters and all the time they spent on the other versions, but it's so much easier to invite friends to play when they don't have to use patches and deal with lag (as much).
>needing friends in a single player mmo
>Player housing & crafting is awesome, BnS railroads you into lame PvP end game.
>Waifus with top notch graphics instead of 2008 DX9.
BnS is for people who want the regular old Korean grindfest
BDO is for the people who modded Skyrim to be a waifu sim + fantasy life sim.
B&S has shit graphics, no sandbox, no good pve like exploration, trading, crafting, etc, no world pvp as far as I know, and if I wanted to 1v1 someone I would do it in a good game like street fighter v, not in an mmo.

JP VPN 5ever
KR no VPN but you will need to verify some info if you dont use a VPN
Well I would like to be that one guy in sieges that tanks 3 guys alone surviving with my blocks, dodges and heals.
I kinda think valk would be able to do that, but not sure.
I mean is there equip that makes you tanky in exchange for dmg?
what a retarded question
why don't you just post your specs
Okay, I got a 6870 1gb, so 20fps? Not playable.
Other stuff is a i5 2500k, 16gb ddr3 1600mhz, an ssd for os, and an ssd for games. I am probably building a new rig soon, maybe in autumn.
Oh and I got a fancy 144hz 1440p monitor (funny thing is, my grafix card actually only supports 120hz). So that will make things more difficult in my case. But yeah if I'm tolerating grisly texture quality I'll probably be able to play it.
I don't play any games that are graphically demanding really, I never play shooters, I play some roguelikes, strategy/management games, some roleplaying games, and such. So there's rarely a reason for me to consider upgrading the gpu...
I got the first ssd as system disk back then when I built the rig, it's only 80gb (12k hours and no problems, fuck yeah Intel quality). Then I got a second 960gb ssd on black friday sale because it was just 200 usd. Cheap as fuck.
Does anyone know how to get this Tamer costume? I can't seem to find anything in the pearl store and outside of it. Mind you i'm not in KR.
i like how you can run to places and just generally waste time and look at things
also is everything supposed to be grainy?
exploration is amazing. you can vault onto all kinds of things
i miss my tamer rei
