BDO: Valencia Grave Robber Questline

I know many people are having trouble with this questline and since I’m having to re-do it with my season server character; I am going to post it here.

What you will need for this quest line because you will be in the desert:  Compass, Shovels, Water, Star Anise Tea (if in the desert at night), horse or camel and your weapons. (At bare minimum)

You obtain this quest thru the Black Spirit and you will need to find “Afuaru” for the first quest: Valencia Grave Robber.

Second quest is relatively simple – Steal a book from the Royal Palace.  Quest: Finding Valencia’s Treasures.

Just on your navigation and just go straight to the book.

Third quest: Afuaru’s Hobby’s.  He wants you to steal from three people marked on the map.  In order to steal, you need to stand behind them and when the circle menu appears, hit F6.

Sometimes, it takes multiple times for you to steal the item you need.   If you fail, keep trying.

Bring the items back to Afuaru.

Afuaru being the weirdo he is, now wants you to give those items to 3 other people marked on the map.

Go to each person and hit chat and then go back to Afuaru when you are done.

Quest: Give me first, then we can talk.

Next quest: Now that you can read.  Use navigation and go read the book.  Coming back to Afuaru.

Quest: Grave of a King.  You will need to hop on your horse or camel and go northeast to Valencia castle.

It’s not very far.  You will see three guys outside of Valencia Castle.  Go inside and follow the long path to where you are underground.

You will see this stone ruin thing in the middle of the room.  The circle beside it – go in the middle and use the tool that Afuara gave you.

A strange creature will appear and you will have to kill it.  (It’s not hard to kill)

Go all the way back up to the top, get on your horse or camel and go to Valencia and see Afuara again.

Black Desert Online: How to add water & fertilizer to your crops.

Just a simple tutorial on how to add water and fertilizer to your crops so they grow quicker and yield more.  You will need to have water and fertilizer in your inventory for this to work. You can make your own or go buy some from marketplace.  It’s not very expensive.

Step 1:  Go to any crop in your farm plot and Click “R”  to view crop information.  (Your menu may have different hot keys depending on the stage of the crop you are looking at.  It maybe the F6 key)

Step 2: Right click on your water and your fertilizer until the bars are showing full.

The water and fertilizer will be applied to all the crops in that farm fence.  You will need to do this in every farm fence you have.

 

 

Black Desert Online: Old Moon Farming Fences

If you are into farming life skills then you’ll want to pick up this little perk when you reach farming “Master 1.”  These fences are better than the strong fences.  They are slightly smaller in size and they use less water and fertilizer.  You still can only have 10 fences at a time.  Once you reach farming master 1, then you need to find an old moon manager.  There are several off them all over the map.  The one I use is “Stee” in Heidel.  He is easy to find in the northern tavern by the bar.

In Heidel: Find “Stee” in the northern Heidel tavern.  Chat with him and get the fences.   You will need to use your farming character that has reached “Master 1 or higher” to be able to lay the fences down.

 

 

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)

Black Desert: How to obtain sailing experience.

How to level up sailing?

Here is what you need to do:

·         Own a boat.  (A raft will not work)

·         Have lots of repair kits

·         You only gain sailing experience in un-mapped (unchartered) water. (Margoria Ocean)

·         You cannot auto-path in this area.

·         You cannot “AFK” sail in this area.  (At least it’s not recommended)

·         You will run into ghost ships and water sprouts that can damage your boat.

·         There are several daily quests in Port Ratt that help you gain sailing experience.

·         You can kill / hunt sea monsters. (Young Black Rust, Young Candidum, Young Nineshark) This will give you some sailing experience too.

Leveling up in sailing is one of the more difficult life skills to get experience for. BDO has reduced the experience you need for sailing to level up but really, not made it any easier to gather that experience.  You will have to decide if sailing that much is worth it to you.
