BDO: Still Trading and Crazy Seasons

2016-11-12_373546396Over the course of the weekend, BDO went from winter holiday goodness strait to spring. I can’t say I’m complaining the tulips are pretty and the cherry trees were grand.

I do miss the snow and the snow men. I’m not sure what happened to the seasonal content but it could have been anything really.

Trading is going over quite well. I’ve made enough to pick up the bow I wanted for the Ranger and now I’m saving up for a nice awakening weapon.

Since I’ve hit professional trading, silver has been piling up. I’m also heavily invested in Imperial Delivery. It may not be a huge money maker compared to some other forms of trading, but I’m enjoying the mobility it offers and the payoff.

Though I do need to finish getting amity with all of the trade managers involved in the process so I can use as little energy as possible trying to bargain. Bargaining makes a huge difference when it comes to how much you can make when trading. Having high luck to get better chances and having amity invested to get more chances per try means I spend a lot less energy and manage to get bargains on usually the first or second try.

2016-11-14_49626341I have gone out and done a tiny bit of grinding with the Ranger and so far the new bow has been a huge improvement. I’m looking forward to what a new sword could do.

In the meantime though I’ll be trading away since for the most part I don’t have enough energy to do much else.

I am already back up to 13 million silver so that’s something. Now I just need to keep trading and hope that I get a couple more decent horses to sell off as they drag my cart around.

Until next time, keep haulin’.

BDO: Still Hooked

2016-07-11_476587827

At this point it’s safe to say I’m pretty hooked on BDO.

I love the AFK features, the leveling isn’t bad at all, the open world pvp isn’t as bad as I thought it would be and I finally have a class that I like.

The only problem is that the Ninja and Kunoichi will be released in the NA/Euro version next week. I would like to play this class but honestly I’m thinking that I’ll want to finish building up my Ranger first. I still have a long way to go in completing the armor and weapon upgrades just for that class.

While I will be able to swap the armor back and forth, I’ll have to start at zero again with the weapons unless I farm up some serious cash and just outright buy better weapons. Honestly at this point that sounds like a much better option. Mostly because my level fu with weapons is beyond awful. I have some of the worst upgrade luck ever. I mean really, it’s beyond bad.

There is also some other time sinks I would have to work around like figuring out how to play the class, deciding how I want her to look, and yes adding on the levels.

While it would probably be worth it to at least try out the class, I’m still on the fence about whether the combat style and costume customization will be quite right for me.

Until I decide I might as well keep working on my Ranger. She’s managed to hit 50 and I really should start working on dailies and scrolls. Not to mention finding a guild that won’t make me cringe when I log in.

Yes I have a level 50 character with no guild.

Thing is that getting into just any guild is easy. Getting into a guild with people that you actually want to spend time with, that takes a little more time and effort.

I plan on spending a LOT of time in BDO. There is still a lot that this game has to offer. I also want a stable guild with fun people in it to share that experience with.

Since I have zero interest in BDO’s pvp scene, that narrows down the list a bit. I’m not a fan of PvX guilds since they end up going where the wind blows and it’s usually no where near where I’m at. A PvE guild probably wouldn’t put up with my horsing and constant search for the occasional RP hotspot.

I would like to find another RP guild like I had in Fallen Earth way back when. I just have no idea if I will ever get back to that place where I could just log into the guild, maybe get into some RP, maybe go grind, but always just have folks to chat with.

Maybe one day I’ll find a guild like that again. Who knows?
