New World has a Winter Festival going on through December 16th to January 11th.
You can find out more information on their site here.
Here’s another website where you can find all the Gleamite locations: Click here
Here are some answers to some of the frequently asked questions that I see in chat and hopefully, that will help a few of you.
Are fallen Gleamite meteors random? Random to some degree, yes. Fallen Gleamites only show up at night and at destinated locations. It’s not going to be just anywhere on the map. Below are three areas, that I frequent for Gleamite meteors. (There are more places – Just FYI!) The reason that it is somewhat random is because the shower may only be one per night or more and it’s never an exact time.
Everfall: Salt Hollow is my least favorite place because it’s often crowded. This is because it’s very close to a Winter Village and people can run back and forth. If you do want to be near a Winter Village, then this is a good place to go.
Restless Shores: Go where the red circle is. This place is my second favorite because nobody is ever there. The night cycle lasts about 30 mins? (Not sure) and sometimes, there will be two meteor showers if you wait long enough. The downside is that isn’t much to do other than wait.
Monarch’s Bluff: This is my favorite place. See the red circle. There aren’t too many people around and I can kill or gather things while I wait for the next shower. There is plenty of motes, turkeys, wolves, wood, iron and food items in the area to really keep you busy.
Food: If you are trying to farm Gleamites then be sure to get some food at the Winter Village. They cost 2 Winter Tokens each and it doesn’t matter which one you get. Each one will double the amount of Gleamites gathered when taken. It lasts for 25 minutes.
What is the purpose of Gleamites? You can farm Gleamites, go to the Winter Village and use the hut there to turn them into Winter Tokens. These tokens are used at the store by talking to the Winter Wanderer. You can also search for lost presents too and turn them into Winter Tokens. (You only get 1 lost present at a time, but you do get event reputation. The more reputation you have, the more options you have to buy from the store.
Settlement Winter Trees: There are decorated Winter Trees in each settlement. The tree will give you a present. (The website says up to 3 times per Tree – a just once a day) In the Winter Village, there is a tree there that also will give you a present. If you are level 60, the tree will give you some extra goodies. You can visit each settlement in the different regions and get a gift as well as each Winter Village.
Winter Village Locations: Everfall, Brightwood, Monarch’s Bluff and Weaver’s Fen.
I been checking Steam lately for gaming deals and I have been recommended a shit ton of these games. It says its because I played some nudity game which I think is Conan Exiles. (I swear!) After checking into these games, I realized there is a lot of lonely desperate and horny men out there.
Reading the reviews was actually pretty hilarious. Here are a few of my favorite ones that I read. These are all from Dick, Dine and Dash.
How to sell your dorm:
First, I will explain what that means when somebody in chat is saying they are selling their dorm.
When a person wants to sell their dorm, this does not mean they want to sell their account, they are actually selling all the items on display in their dorm room.
To view these items, you would have to click the person’s profile and then use the “Enter Room” button.
To purchase or trade:
In order to purchase these items, you will first need to friend the person.
Open a chat with the person and hit the trade button.
Why are they selling their dorm?
Lots of people like to collect the whole dorm room theme and sell them for bentos.
It usually takes quite a bit of time to collect a whole themed room and it’s not easy.
Whole themed dorm room prices will vary. It will depend on rarity and what level the pieces are at.
Furniture items are usually exchanged for bentos.
The 499 & 999 items are going to be the most expensive. 999 items are a minimum of 15 bentos and higher.
I have seen 999 item go for 70 bentos. (I think that’s too high though) but level does play a major factor in how much something sells for.
499 & 999 are also the hardest to obtain or win.
A 499 item is going to be around 10 bentos (maybe higher)
A bed or desk – around 2 to 5 bentos.
The items that don’t level up aren’t worth even 1 bento. Those are the floors, wallpaper and some of the wall hangings.
The lamp, table, shelf, shelf items, chair and other floor item can usually start around 1 to 5 bentos (maybe higher depending on level and rarity.)
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 is the best way for a beginner to earn lots of silver.
You can AKF fish and still earn silver.
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 begins at level 56
You cannot add crystals to your awakening weapon.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
You can switch servers every 15 minutes.
This is handy if you somebody is bothering you or you are in an overcrowded location.
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.
Grind unused cheap crystals and turn them into black stone powder.
You will need lots of this powder for various projects / crafting.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You need contribution points for a house, extra storage, worker crafting stations and unlocking nodes.
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
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.
