How to get various items in the game:

Gems: You can buy gems for real money and I have received some as rewards from various quests.

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.
