Covet Fashion: Challenge Guidance Tip

Covet Fashion: Challenge Tip

Some of the challenges provide additional clues other than the picture and description.  You will see a bar, close to the top, highlighted in pink. (See picture)  Click the bar.  This will open up a new pop-up window showing clothing items that are geared towards the theme.  These items are not required.  Some of those items might already be in your closet or you can buy them.  Whether you buy them or not, it’s a good guide to tell where the theme is going and how other players are going to be dressing their character.

Props

Some challenges also will have a little box in the corner that resembles a wand.  This is the prop options.  The challenge will allow you to use props in three different areas of the picture. Covet does not have a huge prop collection but props are free so if it fits the theme go for it.

Black Desert Online: Noob killing fields

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.

Areas:

Hexe Sanctuary

Witch’s Chapel

Rhutum Outstation

Rhutum Sentry Post

Mansha Forest

Catfishman’s Camp

Why?

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.

Story time:

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.

Pro Tips:

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)

BDO: Quest Tip – Count the arrows

I am trying to level up another character to 60 so I’m doing a lot of quests lately. There is one over by Outpost Supply Port that is particularly annoying and difficult. The quest is called “Count the arrows.” You will need to count all the arrows in several boxes.  It is completely random and not to mention almost impossible to count all the arrows but apparently somebody on the internet has done it.  (Not me though)  I searched google to find the answer – so here is what you need to do if you have this quest.

Open chat window: Type in 922.  

Hit enter. Quest is completed.

Dumpster Fire

I am adding a new section to this site. (See top menu) It is where I will be posting my reviews and other bs at.  I have two sections so far: Netflix Reviews and IPAD Time Waster Games. I will be adding more to this section fairly often in the next coming weeks as most of it is already written. (about 100 lolz.)  Categories to come are: YouTube Melts My Mind – which will be a mixture of videos/people I like and other things that I’m sure somebody was on acid when they made it.  I know this isn’t really an interactive site but if you wanted to contact me with a category, you would like me to toss in the mix – I sure would like to hear from you.   See contact form below.

I suppose I should have a disclaimer so some hipster doesn’t get up in my shit.  My quote aka disclaimer: “My opinion and advice is shit at best. Please, lower your expectations and do not believe at any point in time now or in the future will I provide valuable reading material.  Thank you.” end quote / disclaimer. 

What I have posted so far:

Netflix Reviews:

The Silence

Murder Mystery

IPAD Time Waster Games:

Wonka’s World of Candy

My Cafe

Best Friends 

 

BDO: What I wish I knew in the beginning.

Black Desert Online: Tips & What I wish I knew at the beginning:

 

This game is so vast and there is so much to do.  It really is impossible to do everything.

I have been playing for 2 years and have not even done a 1/3 of it yet.

Don’t get overwhelmed by it all and take it slow.

Trying to do everything at once will only achieve burn out.

Get a pet.

If you purchase anything from the Pearl shop, then a pet is a must.

Occasionally, you can get a free pet from the Daily attendance but it is not every month.

You have little hope of ever purchasing a pet off the marketplace.

You can have up to 5 pets out at one time.

Pets pick up your loot and give you bonuses for combat and life skills. (Loot = Money/Silver)

Pearl Shop is a rip off.

Everything is way over price.

Pearl shop does have sales and coupons every once in a while.

Try out different characters first to see which ones you like the best before buying character items in the pearl shop.

If you ever have to delete a character, some of those pearl items will not transfer to other characters.

Fishing

Fishing is the best way for a beginner to earn lots of silver.

You can AKF fish and still earn silver.

PVP

PVP begins at level 50.

You don’t have to PVP.

Other players can kill you in combat areas even if you do not have PVP activated. (Only after level 50)

You can lose experience when you die.

Some of the crystals might break in  your weapons and armor if you die.

Awakening

Awakening begins at level 56

You cannot add crystals to your awakening weapon.

Horse

Buy a horse as soon as possible. Does not need to be expensive or high tier.

It will be too difficult and time consuming to run everywhere.

Quests

Do the Black Spirit quests.

Those quests will reward you with inventory slots and combat experience.

Black Spirit quests need to be done in order to unlock other quests.

Do not sell!

Black Stones

Memory Fragments

You will need a shit ton of these to level up weapons and armor.

I do not recommend selling items from rewards or events until you are sure what they are.

Rewards

You are rewarded the longer you stay on the server even if you are AFK.

You are rewarded for having multiple characters.

These are actually encouraged in this game.

Characters

It is best to have one main fighting character and make the additional characters geared towards life skills.

Reason is because leveling up weapon and armor is very expensive and a long drawn out process.

Characters part two

Not all characters are created equal.

I do not recommend making the “Ranger” character your first one.

The “Ranger” is difficult to level up and cannot combat mobs like the other characters.

The ranger is a good character but it is not a killing machine.

Good beginning characters: Striker, Dark Knight, and Tamer. (Only my opinion)

Characters part three

Your character name can be important.  Depending on what you name your character will be the deciding factor whether you get killed a lot or not.

I named one of my character after a venereal disease and people are constantly trying to kill me.

There has been a few guilds that have refused to let me join over the character’s name.

Changing a character or family name will cost you actual money from the Pearl Shop.

So choose wisely! Unless, you like being verbally abused, trolled and even killed.

Pay to Win

BDO has a lot of high priced crap in their pearl shop but the game is not pay to win.

BDO is one huge sandbox and there is no winning scenario.

You can buy stuff that will give you extra boosts but you can also obtain that without spending real money.

High powered weapons, armor and other things, you will have to actually work for it.

Beginner Weapons & Armor

You will get beginner weapons and armor from starter quests.

Do not level these up.  It is a waste of black stones.

You cannot re-sell these on the marketplace.

Olvia servers (It is Olvia not Olivia)

You can only play on the Olvia servers if you are new and for up to 30 days.

Join those servers for the max allowed time.

Olvia servers give you extra experience that will help you level up.

Server Switching

You can switch servers every 15 minutes.

This is handy if you somebody is bothering you or you are in an overcrowded location.

Guilds

It’s not necessary to join a guild to play the game.

If you do join a guild – there are PVP and PVE guilds.

Joining a guild does provide you with extra perks and boosts.

Crystals

Grind unused cheap crystals and turn them into black stone powder.

You will need lots of this powder for various projects / crafting.

Chat

Some of the server chat is cancer.

You can turn off certain chats and even make the window smaller so that it is less distracting.

You can mute people in chat.

Notifications

There are a lot of notifications in BDO that automatically show up on default.

It’s annoying and distracting.  You can turn off the majority of them in your settings.

Family Funds

BDO gives you daily funds.

The amount of funds depend on all your characters combined combat, knowledge and life skill levels.

I have 6 characters between the levels of 56 and 59.  I get over million of silver per day.

Repair

If you need to repair your weapons or armor and there is not a blacksmith around, look for a stable.

Stable personnel will also make repairs.

Life skills

Easy life skills for beginners:  Fishing, Cooking, Alchemy, Farming, Gathering, Processing and Trading.

More difficult life skills: Horse Training, Sailing and Hunting.

AFK life skills: Fishing, Cooking, Alchemy, Processing and Horse Training.

Knowledge

Pressing “H” brings up your knowledge screen.

The more knowledge you obtain thru quests or other means will equal more energy for your character /family.

Contribution Points:

You need contribution points for a house, extra storage, worker crafting stations and unlocking nodes.
