Black Desert: The Great Expedition Oquillas Eye Quest Line

Here are more quests in the The Great Expedition Oquillas Eye quest line. Here is the 1st post.

3rd Quest after you finished “Island of Opportunities” go over to the trader “Bahar” in Veila.  He is over by the stables.

He will give the reward from the 2nd quest and then give you a new one called “Before Dawn Cries”  Accept this.

This one is super easy.  Just walk a few steps and start talking to Zaara, the materials vendor. She is right near Bahar.

She will reward you and then offer you a new quest called “Happiness of a book vendor”  Accept it.

Then go to the table right next to her and start reading books.

Read all three books and go back to Zaara for a reward and new quest.

I’ll be updating this quest line as I get all the screenshots ready for them.

 

Black Desert: New way to get sail experience

Black Desert has introduced a new way to get sail experience and all I have to say it about fucking time. Yay!

You will need to start the following quest from the black spirit and just a tip: one of your characters will need to be Fishing Professional 5 and above.

The quest is: The Great Expedition Oquillas Eye

  • Accept the quest from the black spirit and go see Igor in Veila.  He’s over by the tavern
  • First quest completed.
  • Second quest in the series is “Island of opportunities”

  • Go to Islin in the tavern and “chat” with her.

  • Once, you are done speaking with Islin go over to the table of rowdy drunks and start talking to this man. The one circled in red.
  • Keep clicking on “Chat” until quest is completed.

I’ll finish these quests out as I go through them and take screenshots.

PIMD: What to trade or keep?

Party in my dorm tutorial -What to trade or keep?

Items you cannot give away, trade or even gift:

Pets or Pet Supply Boxes

Hunt collection items (Most)

Timer boxes

Lite Boxes

Cash

Extra Credit

Pim Key

Furniture Key

Avatars

You can drop the following for other people at their parties but you cannot trade or gift these:

Cats

Bikinis

Good items to trade:

Shards

Furniture

Stat Items

Spinner Items

What to keep:

Bentos

Chibis

This is considered currency in PIMD.  It’s good to save all of these.  I would only use these when you absoltuely have too.

*Note*

A lot of people will overprice items and want you to pay in bentos or chibis.   I was looking for a certain type of shards and wanted to trade with somebody.

I got so many posts on my wall where people said you can buy these shards for me for  “Blank” amount of bentos.  You do not need to accept these trades.

There are plenty of people who will trade without bentos or chibis.

Hunt Boxes:

People on the game will want to sell their hunt boxes (the ones that are tradeable) for bentos and chibis.  Do not buy them.  This is a rip off because in order to open these

boxes, you will need pim keys and in order to get pim keys, you need to pay real money and lots of it.  If you pay for these using bentos or chibis, you are basically paying twice.

How to get extra hunt boxes?

If you are willingly to pay real money to open these boxes, you can ask in chat if somebody will gift or trade with you for some.  There are a lot of people that do not want these boxes and will just gift them to you.

If you go the trade route, I would trade other items that are not bentos or chibis for them.

Good items to gift at Cat or Pizza Bikini parties:

If always expected in most clubs to gift the dropper of the cat or pizza bikini because the cat or bikini can cost real money and you need these items in order for the party to start.

Here’s a list of good gifts: (1 gift is usually acceptable unless otherwise noted)

Stat items

Amps

Chibis (Some people give these – I don’t)

Furniture (Not starter furniture)

Current hunt boxes(Some people don’t want hunt boxes because they don’t have the funds to open them-Check first)

Spinner Items

Here’s the bad list:

Non-stat items

1 Shard (If you have to give shards – give 5 to 10)

Old hunt boxes

Wallpaper or flooring (This is a dull gift)

BDO: Quest Tip – Unchained Curiosity

If you are on your way to discover Valencia City for the first time, you will probably run into this quest before you get there.

In this quest, you will need to discover Ibellab Oasis that is located in the desert.  You will have to find some travelers located right outside of Gahaz Bandits Lair.

(See Map Below)

When you reach these three travelers, be sure you are still on your horse because once you talk to one of them, they take off to Ibellab Oasis. Just “R” to chat to one of them and just follow the one to the Oasis.  (You don’t need to chat to all three)

Things you will need when you are in the desert – so prepare before you go:

  1. Water (Put the water on your hot bar)
  2. Star Anise Tea (To warm your body up at night)
  3. Compass (There are 3 parts to a compass – you can buy the parts off the marketplace then put together)
  4. Some type of ride (Horse or a Camel)
  5. Shovels (For quests later down the road)

Ipad Time Wasters: Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker

Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker

Genre: Dating / Stimulation

Summary:  You work at a dating agency and you goal is to find love connections for your clients.

Thoughts: 

Here are the bad ones first:  I think the graphics could be better.  It’s not the worst that I have seen but definitely not great.  Some parts of the game got a bit tedious especially if you ended up picking the same restaurant multiple times.  The good part is that I thought the game was hilarious.  I got several good chuckles from the situations that the characters were involved in and the game developers were really creative when it came to character names and hobbies. The mini games were challenging enough and in some cases, you could cheat if you wanted too.  I don’t mind being a cheater so that worked for me.  Below, there is a small guide for some tips & hints on how to play and do well.

Recommend:

I would recommend this especially if you are just looking for a relaxing casual game.

 

Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker Tips:

  • Pay attention to how the character’s appearance and their attire.  This is a clue on what type of personality they are.  You have, for example, geeky, sporty, hippie, edgy and etc.
  • Astrological signs are not that important.  It helps but it’s not important to make a relationship work.
  • You need two or more personality traits to match up in order for the characters to want to start a relationship. (This is the 3rd tab on the profile)
  • 3 star rated characters do not like going to 1 start restaurants.  VIP characters are even more picky. The date will give you a strike for this.
  • Your date will give you a strike if you take them to the same restaurant twice.
  • You can only talk about most topics one time with the exception of interests.  You can talk about that up to 3 times with the same date.  Do not pick the same interests each time though.
  • You get bonus points if both characters have matching professions or matching hobbies / likes.
  • If the character gets their heart broke three times, they will leave the agency.
  • If their date reaches 3 strikes during dinner, the date will walk out of the restaurant.
  • Every time, you unlock a restaurant; you are also unlocking new mini games.
  • If you know your date is an extrovert, you don’t have to worry about passing the farting mini game.  An extrovert will not care if you fart.
  • A date, who is an extrovert, will not care if you talk to your ex in the restaurant.  You will not have to lie.  If you are on a date with an introvert, you will have to lie or you will get a strike from your date.
  • In order for a couple to have children, they will have to be an A / A + pair.

Second Life: Photography Tutorial Part 1

A lot of people have asked me over the years how I take close up pictures and how I make the models eyes look so expressive.

Here’s are some things that I do when I take pictures.  I’ll start with my graphic settings for the pictures.

Graphic Preferences: (Click on any to enlarge)

I take my pictures in Ultra graphics.  If your computer cannot handle Ultra, try high or medium.  They will be at least better than low.

I save my pictures roughly around 6000 pixel width to 3000 / 4000 pixel height. After I am finished editing in photoshop, I will resize the picture to around 2000 pixels in width.  It’s better to save your picture as large as you can and then resize after editing.  I can try to explain this one all day but trust me, you will want to do this.

I use firestorm as my viewer. I find it’s better for taking pictures then the default SL viewer.

I use photo tools a lot.  The main thing I do is change the Depth of view -view angle.  I don’t turn Depth of Field on.  I just use the view angle on that tab.

DOF view angle combined with the free cam tool, you can use the mouse wheel to zoom in closer than you usually can.

Second Life: Photography Tutorial Part 2

Photography tutorial part 2: How I make the eyes look so expressive.

Emotion in the eyes:

When it comes to capturing emotions in the eyes, I do a few tricks.  It’s not natural by any means.

1.       I do use mesh eyes. (Catwa eyes to be exact)  The hud that comes with the Catwa eyes allows you to move the eyes in different directions. This is helpful when you are posing to have the eyes stay in the position that you want them in.  You do not have to use Catwa eyes but it is handy to have that Hud with the eyes.

2.       Depending on what emotion I am trying to capture, I will move the mesh eyes up or down.  I find if I want to capture anger, hostility or even a sensual pose; I move the iris more towards the top of the eyelid. If I am looking for a soft, sad, depressed or even a more innocent expression; I move the iris closer to the bottom.  (See pictures below)

3.       I edit my face shape.  I have several shapes saved for pictures that I custom made myself.  With one shape, the outer corner of the eyes are intentionally turned downwards.  (Not a lot because I don’t want to make it super noticeable)  This gives the face a natural sadden appearance.  When you experience grief or are crying, the outer corners of your eyes will turn downwards.  When you are overjoyed or excited, those outer corners will turn up.  So based on the type of picture is the shape I use.

4.       Not all mesh eyes are created equal.  I think we all can tell the difference between noob eyes and high quality eyes.  I tend to use eyes that I know will photograph well.  There are a lot of good quality eyes that look great but for some reason just don’t photograph well. It’s just like real life when you think you look great and then somebody shows you a picture of yourself from a party and your eyes look like they belong in the black pits of hell.  After a lot of trial and error, I have found several people that make wonderful photographic worthy eyes.  (I have not tried all the eyes in Second Life – these are just my personal preference – use the eyes you personally like)

5.       Here are a list of eye makers to try out if you are struggling:  (Again, I use the Catwa Eye system with appliers from the designers below)

a.       A R T E

b.       Euphoric

c.       Go & See

d.       Song

e.       IKON (He doesn’t really update but his eyes are mesh and they come with a hud)

 

5.  Eyebrow shapes are seriously important to your picture.  The wrong eyebrow shape can really make your picture look like shit.   Here are two pictures using different eyebrow shapes: I think you can see the difference in facial expressions.

Will write up a tutorial for wind lights soon. So look for part three soon.
