If you are on a season server trying to level up your new character make sure to take a look at this quest. It’s not a black spirit quest but it is one just for the season server people.
You will find it over in the Gahaz Bandit area and you just need to find Rafa to get it.
You need to kill 5000 bandits and your rewards is 300 CP and a choice of 600 time filled black stones, 90 tuvala ore or 40 refined magical black stone.
This is a good quest to try to get more ore or stones for Tuvala gear.
Pro Tip: Since you are planning on killing so many bandits – make sure to visit Marni and get some stones to fill up souls. Every point helps to level up.
Just a simple tutorial on how to add water and fertilizer to your crops so they grow quicker and yield more. You will need to have water and fertilizer in your inventory for this to work. You can make your own or go buy some from marketplace. It’s not very expensive.
Step 1: Go to any crop in your farm plot and Click “R” to view crop information. (Your menu may have different hot keys depending on the stage of the crop you are looking at. It maybe the F6 key)

Step 2: Right click on your water and your fertilizer until the bars are showing full.
The water and fertilizer will be applied to all the crops in that farm fence. You will need to do this in every farm fence you have.
If you are into farming life skills then you’ll want to pick up this little perk when you reach farming “Master 1.” These fences are better than the strong fences. They are slightly smaller in size and they use less water and fertilizer. You still can only have 10 fences at a time. Once you reach farming master 1, then you need to find an old moon manager. There are several off them all over the map. The one I use is “Stee” in Heidel. He is easy to find in the northern tavern by the bar.
In Heidel: Find “Stee” in the northern Heidel tavern. Chat with him and get the fences. You will need to use your farming character that has reached “Master 1 or higher” to be able to lay the fences down.
If you are on your way to discover Valencia City for the first time, you will probably run into this quest before you get there.
In this quest, you will need to discover Ibellab Oasis that is located in the desert. You will have to find some travelers located right outside of Gahaz Bandits Lair.
(See Map Below)
When you reach these three travelers, be sure you are still on your horse because once you talk to one of them, they take off to Ibellab Oasis. Just “R” to chat to one of them and just follow the one to the Oasis. (You don’t need to chat to all three)
Things you will need when you are in the desert – so prepare before you go:
- Water (Put the water on your hot bar)
- Star Anise Tea (To warm your body up at night)
- Compass (There are 3 parts to a compass – you can buy the parts off the marketplace then put together)
- Some type of ride (Horse or a Camel)
- Shovels (For quests later down the road)
King Griffon knowledge is one of the hardest to get in the game. (I don’t know why) There is an easy way though! There are two quests that require you to have King Griffon knowledge. Those quests are: Revivify Knowledge & Co-Op Head of an Eagle, Body of a lion. Pro tip: Do these quests at the same time. You can get them from an NPC in the middle pond area of Navarn Steppe. (See Map Below) In order to finish Revivify Knowledge quest, you have to obtain all the ecology knowledge in Steppe. Press H (for Knowledge menu) Go to Ecology, Ecology of Kamasylvia and then the first one on top, Steppe of Kamasylvia. You have to discover everything under Steppe. Even if you have collected energy from Steppe ecology knowledge – in order, to finish the Revivify quest, nothing can be a ???.
Obtain all the knowledge under Steppe of Kamasylvia, leaving King Griffon for last. Once, you have everything but King Griffon, go to Milden. (He is located in the middle pond area) Milden will sell you King Griffon knowledge for 10 energy but only after you have the knowledge of everything else.
This is one of the quests you might get when you first start and as a beginner it can be a bit tricky.
The quest is called “Hunting-Loving Hunter.” The first part of the quest is easy, you just go to the Inn in Veila and talk to the people at the first table near the cook.
The 2nd part, you will have to find Chuck Laurie in the mountains. There is no auto path to him and he is not high-lighted on the map.
Here is a map to show you where he is. He is right below Olvia. Where the little question mark is.
Total hot bed areas for noob killing spree:
I have not been a BDO noob for a very long time but it never fails, whenever I try to level up a new character these are the areas, I get viciously slaughtered down by other players the most.

You may wonder why so much killing and bloodshed happens in these areas. It’s because these are the areas that a character will hit that 50 level mark. So to all the gaming psychopath’s out there, it makes you easy pickings.
PVP is allowed after level 50 and above. Most players when they hit the level 50 mark, they are still not strong enough to fight off other players. Many predatory assholes will lay and wait for those noobs to wander through there. My guess is the reasons why are as follows: 1. They want to lose Karma. Some people enjoy the bad guy aspects of this game. 2. They find it entertaining. 3. They think it will add clout with their other guild-ies and friends. 4. The noob has invaded their grinding spot. 5. They are mentally unstable.
One time, I was at Hexe Sanctuary trying to defeat 2 million skeletons on my way to leveling up to 56 when I met a young wizard. He stopped me in the middle of my bloodlust frenzy killing and started to chat. He said to me “How are you today?” Before I could even press enter to type my reply, he had hit me over the head several times with his wizard staff. I was dead on the spot. He zipped out of there like a bitch. I just sat there confused and wondered what the fuck just happened to me. All I knew was that nice polite wizard was a piece of shit and it shook me to the core. I learned a valuable lesson that day. I would never stop to have idle polite chit chat with somebody in combat areas and wizards are dead to me.
If you do have somebody hovering around or bothering you in combat areas, here is what you can do:
1. Let them just kill you. (I don’t recommend this because you will lose combat experience)
2. Run away (I do this fairly often because I worked hard on leveling up and don’t need to lose combat experience)
3. Switch servers. (You can switch servers every 15 minutes.)
4. Try to kill them. (Why not, give it a go…you might lose though)
5. Message them and beg them to be your friend. (I tried this once and was rejected)
6. Report them to BDO for being bastards. (Good luck with this..BDO will not help)
7. Turn PVP off. (I keep my PVP off but have still been killed)
