As with most games, a lot of the hotkey settings are very similar, this game will not be the case. A lot of the instructions are either on screen too fast and disappear or the instructions are buried somewhere.
I believe you get a brown horse by default in the game or by completing an early quest. I noticed you can buy mounts or earn them through quests. I got this bird mount somehow but I’m not really sure how. Anywho……
To find your mount – It says you need to be by a stable to register them – that wasn’t the case with me. Here’s how I did it.
I opened my inventory bag by pressing “I” on the keyboard.
I clicked under “Consumables” at the top and found a mount card in my inventory. (The mount icon is a horse) I clicked on that and it asked me if I wanted to use this card. I clicked “ok” to this. The card will disappear from your inventory and be added to your stable of mounts. (automatically whether you are near a stable or not)
Down at the bottom of your screen, you will see how many mounts you have active or total.
To call on your mount and ride around on it, you just need to hit “X” on your keyboard. Also, “X” to get off the mount.
To switch out your mount, click the ESC button on your keyboard. Pick Stable from the menu. All the mounts you own will be highlighted. Click on the mount you want to use by default. This puts a little triangle in the corner of the mount picture.
BDO: Loyalty Points
Loyalty points are free just for playing and I’m not complaining but there are some items better than others to spend those loyalty points on:
Below is what I have spent my points on previously:
Character Slot Expansion Coupon. (Having a lot of characters in this game is a bonus)
Weight Limit 50LT (I buy this when I’m starting a new character. They have very low weight limit in the beginning and this helps with all the loot)
Blessing of Kamasylve 1 Day (If it’s a day I know I will be fighting mobs a lot, I get one of these because it increases the loot drop)
Sealed Book of Combat 1day (Again, if I’m fighting mobs, I get this to boost up my combat experience. It’s especially helpful in higher levels)
What I never get or use:
Golden bell (It’s a lot of loyalty points just for 1 hour of combat experience. It also for everybody on the server but I don’t care about those other people)
Inventory +1 Expansion Coupon (It’s another one that requires a shit ton of points for very little. If you want inventory slots, just do a few of the Black Spirit beginning quests)
City Storage Slots + 1 (Not even sure why this is in there. You can add storage slots just by using contribution points on city buildings)
Atlanis Firefly (You can get these really cheap at any goods vendor)
These items you are get on marketplace cheap:
The other items don’t personally interest me so you will have to decide if it’s worth it to you or not.
Black Desert does put loyalty items on sale and have limited things from time to time. It’s always worth checking out.
