The pandemic has got everyone on edge. As this is a very contagious, a lot of companies are asking employees to remain safe at home, without compromising their responsibilities at work. This is also the perfect time to multitask. Still focusing on work during work hours, but you can now play BDO while on breaks, or check it from time to time. Below are some semi-afk activities you can do in Black Desert Online while working from home.
If you're working from home, you can set up semi-afk cooking, while still performing your tasks at work. Log in to BDO, gather all your ingredients, start cooking and put it in the background! Whenever your character is cooking, there's a sound notification (make sure you have your headphones or speakers on). When you no longer hear this in the background it means the batch cooking is done, you can check on it for a minute, set it up again, and go back to work!
NOTE: Alchemy can also be done using the same pattern, difference is materials are more difficult to source unless you've collected tons beforehand.
Another semi-afk Lifeskill. It's semi afk for me as there is a chance for your bag weight to get full while heating 100k Copper Ore into Melted Copper. It is easier to perform this if you have the Venecil costume, which lets you process directly from storage, with the processed item going to your bag, but this is not required as you can put all the items you want to process in your bag and process from there, hence the weight issue and why this is on this list.
Venecil costume is sold in the Pearl Shop for 500 Pearls and available to female classes. Karki Suit for males sold for the same price.
3. Training (Mount)
Some might argue that this is the number 1 AFK lifeksill (not fishing), I think they are somewhat correct. Then why is it on my semi-afk list? It's here for 1 reason... proper routing. If you regularly do full afk training, you know that sometimes, you will get blocked on an obstacle when doing a turn. So now that you're working from home, you can ensure that you dont get blocked by checking it every once in awhile.
There are tons of different workshops in BDO, Furniture and Refinery are some of my most used ones. Press M, clck on your preferred city (I normally use Calpheon), put the required materials in that city's storage, choose your workshop and send a worker (like you would a node). You can process tons (easier if you have more storage space), checking the completion while working from home.
One of my money maker Lifeskills. Farming requires a lot of patience. Generally, you just have to wait for your crops until they're ready for harvest, but if you really want to level your farming, you need to prune and tend to it every once in a while. So what better time to level your farming than now? The Farming icon will glow to notify you, you can clck it to check for completion or if any of your plants need pruning etc.
To all my friends, and to everyone, in BDO SEA and around the world, stay safe, light and love to you all!
What are your BDO activities while WFH or on self-quarantine? Share them below!
i just afk fishing or chill on velia storage roof if there's an active work stuff to do. Also i have 8 shais to level up. If i'm bored doing all that, i grind a bit. And i'll do WB as much as i can.
@Prawi fishing is a good idea too, especially if you cannot check on your character from time to time. Thanks for the feedback.
For me i do auto path bartering, its a simple money maker xd
I've never done bartering. So basically auto path, once you're there, you barter, then auto path again?
I cook when semi afk.
i Train horse when i fully AFK with 49 character ofcause people are means here in BDO
OMG Shin, you have 49 characters? How do you manage that? Thanks for the tip on cooking.
I think it's lv 49 char, aura. We can only have maximum of 19 char slots now. CMIIW.
@Prawi yes I think you're right, misunderstood. Re afk training, maybe you can afk train inside a safezone?
I do afk horse training inside velia sometimes. So, yes you can do that in safezone. but beware of lag.
Thanks for the tip Prawi. I have a route in Calpheon. Do you mind sharing yours in Velia? My issue with Velia is it's too crowded. My route in Calpheon is free of people.
the route in velia is just cicrling around the main road. Yes it's too crowded, that's why have to be prepared for lag. But it's the closest to the place where i always chill and talk random things with people there, yes the storage roof.
Thank you for clarifying Prawi. Myabe our Guru/Master trainers can share their afk training route and tips on how to avoid clashing with objects?
I cooked tinned sardines in different ways for 7 days...
