How to find your Steam profile ID number.

There are a handful of games out there that require you have your “Steam ID” number and Steam doesn’t make it really that easy to find.  So I thought I would list the steps here.

Step 1:

Open your Steam console from your desktop and click on “View” from the top menu.

Step 2:

Click on settings and then click on Interface

Step 3:

From the interface menu:  Check mark “Display Steam URL address bar when available” and hit “Ok.”

Step 4:

Once, you hit ok, the menu will close out.  Go to your profile. Your ID number will appear at the very end of web link.

BDO: PRO TIP – Fishing

BDO: Fishing Pro Tip

If you often leave your character on (while AFK) fishing then you definitely need to try out this location.

There is a little pond just outside of Duvencrune. (See Picture)  There is an NPC located there that has a daily quest.

In this repeat quest, all you need to do is catch a “Korean Loach” fish and you are rewarded with 400 contribution experience.

If you are going to be AFK fishing, you might as well get some contribution experience from it too.  Right around the corner from this pond, is a trader, blacksmith, storage and central market.

You can sell your fish, repair your rod and put your money in storage.

This location is never super crowded and nothing troll-ish happens there.  In a few hours, I usually catch close to two million worth in silver. I will also get ancient relic crystal shards with a minimum of 1 but I have got as many as 12 before.

Gear & Stats

Fishing Master 8

7+ Epheria Fishing Rod

6+ Maple Float

1+ Fishing outfit

Fishing Rods:

If you have a couple of choices with fishing rods but for long AFK fishing, I prefer Epheria.  You can repair it and use it over and over.

I bought an upgraded one off marketplace and at 7+, this rod has 120 durability.  The float helps catch better more expensive fish.

The fishing outfit gives me experience to level up in fishing.  I’m debating whether to buy a higher grade outfit but not sure it’s worth the money.

*I usually buy upgraded items instead of upgrading them myself.  I do not want to lose the black stones or break the item. Sometimes, it just cost more to upgrade an item then to simply buy it off marketplace.
