If you were born with a silver spoon, or just have an enourmous amount of free time, then congratulations to you!
BUT if you're part of ther BEST CLASS in BDO - The Working Class...
How do you manage your time? And when you do find time to play, what things do you do, or can you do with your real life schedule being so busy?
Tips and Suggestions are welcome!
Hi fellow Supporters, can I get your thoughts on this?
If you play less than 5 hours, grinding is the key. If you play 5 hours++, do some lifeskills.
I usually grind for at least 1 hour with a maximum of 3 hours from Monday to Thursday and a maximum of until-I-had-enough hours from Friday to Sunday. After grinding, I then focus on other stuff like work and chores.
As for the time I play, well depends on my schedule for the week, but usually, I play during the evening on weekdays until either 10:00 PM or 11:00 PM.
@Mimi, isn't easier to do lifeskills if you don't have much time?
@Florentino, that's a good tip. But what if youre so busy you cannot prioritize playing? By your example I feel like you play first before anything else lol.
5/6PM - Attend Farm
6: 30 to 8:30 - Grind
8:30 - 10:30 - Collect excess energy, store it in bottle. During this time, go dinner, semi afk process/cook/alchemy whichever I have the materials
11: 00PM - attend farm - ready to afk fish and sleep.
The following week, I do gathering when I got full load of energy potion/bottle. On weekend, mostly I just afk/semi afk watch movie. But then again, I have 2 monitors. east to afk/ doing 2 works at same time
@Auraenys Oh, right, I'm sorry. I didn't explain it well.
What my "schedule" meant is when I'm done after everything else, then I play BDO, but if I have too much to do, I just login for the daily rewards and be AFK if there's an AFK reward.
Usually, if I'm too busy during weekdays, I throw it all in at weekends.
i play in forum, in game not so much lel busy breathing
@Aliya, do you mind explaining how you "store it in bottle"? This can be useful for future.
@Florentino, thank you for clarifying!
Pretty simple really; Grind or PVP when I am activley playing.
Fish or process when i'm at work or out of the house.
Not really interested in the lifeskill aspect of the game, however once my gear reaches a competitive level for wars/sieges/1v1s, I may shift from grinding to active lifeskilling.
Thank you for your input Velsath!
talk to npc Austin to bottled your energy, largest bottle requires 200 energy, theres one at velia.
Also, I mostly do events. I do lifeskills but not a hardcore one. Repeating valencia I main questline with alts (using alt with same class, shai) to get a bunch of advice of valks (I might gonna write a post about that). Maybe after ocean update I'll do sailing again, got a sailboat with full black gears.
For now, I do at least 1 hr grind/day at ronaros or mirumok because I'm aiming for 62
Thank you for your input Lotys!
@Loty's, I tried this for the first time today after almost 1 year of playing. Too bad it can only store 50 energy out of 200. But I guess that's ok compared to energy not being fully utilized.
@DyahGitarja, I totally missed your reply. Thanks for the input!
honestly its an mmorpg.. you can do whatever and im pretty sure everyone has the same input set time(scheduled grinds) or AFK fish/ life skill etc... yea time management is what everyone needs but IMO
just get healthy with the game.. when you play long enough and start talking with people... they tend to get toxic.. and more importantly if you want to keep playing keep it healthy to avoid burn outs.. i see tons of people playing the game and taking long breaks.. to be thats like a fall out of the game.. i play almost everyday but i dont get burnt out not because i have the time but i keep it healthy. so prolly just the mind set youre gonna put in.. on really super long days/holidays i could just grind 10 hours thats how i got to 62 in like after 1month starting the game?.. and im F2P.. and because im f2p i tend to play it as stress free as possible.
The game is a constant factor with a set of fixed inputs grind/lifeskill/role play
the only variable is you.
