[LIFESTYLE] My Pre-Guild Quest Rituals

As a Lifeskiller, grinding or doing GQs is the last thing I'd do, right beside PvP. But being part of a guild, I have to contribute, and one way to do that is by doing Guild Quests (GQs). You'll realize that sometimes, you don't have to like everything that you do. And when you're about to do something you don't really enjoy, you prepare yourself, to ensure that you finish the task. Below are my Pre-Guild Quest rituals.

 

1. Running

 


No I do not mean in-game and no not running from the GQ. I mean running in real. I'm not a runner, I'm more of a pilates/yoga person, but running is an aerobic activity that will definitely keep my blood flowing. And blood flow ensures that I don't feel sleepy before that Extra Large (x4500) GQ. So I pick myself up, trainers on, and start running! The faster I go the faster I can start the GQ.

 

2. Shower

 


I do not take a bath, unless I want to feel relaxed and will be too lazy to do the GQ. I prefer an extra cold shower (same as when you're about to start the day), making sure the water pressure is set to high, and use a scrub, like a loofah or shower puff. The cold water plus the high pressure jets plus the scrubbing all help in providing me energy.

 

3. Deep Condition

 


Since I'm going to be in front of the computer for quite some time, hair deep conditioning is perfect. I make sure to wash my hair clean, condition it, then apply hair treatment. I put on a shower cap and I'm ready to go. By the time the GQ is done, my hair would have soaked all of the natural goodness and ready for a rinse.

 

4. Tooth Brushing

 


Again another activity that is proven to help keep you awake. I make sure to brush my teeth, apart from brushing my teeth after eating, I brush it again after my pre-GQ shower. My dentist advised that the right amount of brusing is the same as the length of my favorite song. So I play some Spotify, then start brushing. Google, play "Don't Start Now - Dua Lipa".

 

5. Coffee

 


The last but not least, I'm sure this step was no surprise. Personally, I am not a huge coffee person, on the day to day, I love white tea (Lemon and Ginger). But GQs have this vibe, that will bore you to death. So a few minutes before I start the GQ, after all my other steps above are done, I make sure to brew a fresh cup and drink it black. It's gross, and I don't particularly like the taste, but the purpose is to energize and I noticed that bitter coffee is good at that.

 

So there you have it, my pre-GQ rituals. Reading through it again, it could be a morning or night ritual. Or a ritual when you're about to do something that is B O R I N G.

Heating a bag of pop corn, getting into my pyjamas, setting up my controller, puting netflix up on my 2nd screen is basically my ritual before GQs haha. 

I feel like a slob compared to you now.

By controller you mean like the ones for console games? We can do that in BDO? And no , I'm super lazy too, but sometimes we have to do things we don't like, like grinding.

 

Thanks for your input Velsath!

Coffee during grinding is the way for me (but not in the evening).

 

Oohh, and I want to have a controller for myself as well so I can just lay on my bed and grind. Hahaha.

Thank you for your seal of approval Ibarra!

 

I can only imagine all the things I can do if I'm using a controller.

 

Part 2 of this guide are the things I do while doing that GQ. Watch this space!

Most of the time before accepting a GQ (because I'm an officer), I would literally just need to get my whole fridge into the room - munching while chopping trees or hitting on the rocks. Oho!

Hi Roze, that's also great, but by GQ I was referring to the COmbat/Grinding GQ. I love Lifeskill GQ and don't need to prep for it. I'd love to be able to do other things with my hands while doing the GQ. 2nd part of this post coming by the weekend.

 

Thanks for sharing!

Yup, you can setup bdo with controller. I use a ps4 controller with input mapper to play BDO with controller. 

Combat is confusing at first but you get used to it. Succession makes it much more easier to use a controller; succession definitely has controller in mind when devs developed it.

Thank you Veonya and congrats to you too!

 

And thanks Velsath for clarifying. I'll look into that controller thing soon.
