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.
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.
