All of us are busy with our lives, but some just can't make more time than others to play Black Desert. So we do what we can, and that is mostly over the weekend.

 

This guide series will cover my weekends in Black Desert. Thanks to BDOs passive play system, I can still play on weekdays, albeit minimally so I focus on making silver. But weekends, I have more time, hence some (or most) of that is spent playing.

 

To all my working folks out there, or to anyone who likes to get more out of real life but still want to enjoy Black Desert, this goes out to you. Let's get started.


 

 

1. Review Updates


I check this on release day, but I check it again to make sure I understood everything and don't miss out on events and changes in the game. I remember there was an event where you had to claim the rewards from Challenge window (Y) daily, and I didn't read it carefully, so I wasn't claiming the rewards and only realized it on the event's last week (I think this was the free accessories).


 

2. Check Supplies


I normally do this every month-end, but for the sake of order, since I do this first before anything else, I'll cover it first. I want to make sure that I don't waste time having to go back to my home in Calpheon and focus on more important things. This includes pet food, worker food, Lifeskill/Combat buffs, Lifeskills tools, and materials.


 

3. Visit Adventurer's Board/Forums


This is something I've been trying to do daily since it was released. I do it while AFK fishing on weekdays, and while I'm replenishing supplies over the weekend, or after. It's quite a new feature so it might take a while before players start using it more. I also check the forums for any questions or new/updated guides. These 2 doesn't just help the players who's question I answer, it also helps me to learn more stuff about the game. You can access this by pressing F2, which was the old Crafting Notes.


 

4. Finish, Collect Quests


Questing is one of the things I love in Black Desert. I find the Main Quest, and Side Quest stories entertaining, and most give out Contribution Points Exp, some even give knowledge. But this is time consuming, and normally makes it hard to tear away from the game. So I make sure I finish existing quests or get new ones whenever I visit or pass by an area. This saves more time in the future because I don't have to go back just to do them.


 

5. Light Grinding


With emphasis on LIGHT. I make most of my money through Lifeskills, but when you're fresh out from a Central Market shopping spree, you need all the help you can get to earn back that silver. I do 1 HOUR MAX grinding in Mirumok (maybe I'll move to better places when I have higher AP), 2 hours is a stretch and only if I didn't feel sleepy after 1 hour.


 

So there you have it. This is the general/broad picture of what my weekends in BDO is like. I'll go into specific activities starting August 30, 2020, onwards to the next 5 weeks or so.

 

Now I can go back to obessesing with Quest#8 of the Secret quest (been fishing overnight, still nothing). Need to finish this soon so I can live up to being a Weekend Warrior...

 

err Dark Knight.


The person beside me has died from the wait. Literally RIP RNG.

The new feature of BDO's Adventurer's Board is really helping a lot!
Especially to New Adventurer's!

Even though I'm a Supporter myself, I check this as much as I can since these kind of posts can also be a learning material for me!
(Since I'm mostly busy with real life)
I hope that more people will use the Adventurer's Board!

Thanks for the awesome posts Aura~ :D


I totally agree Tearl. I even posted a question myself. I guess it's just a cleaner way to post and answer questions, and you can always go back to it compared to just asking in server or in group chats.

I just feel like, if I need something in the future, I won't have to worry about where to get them. Also, that outfit couldn't be any brighter.

 

@Prawi, it sometimes pays to be a pack rat. Like for events, most of the stuff I need to cook/process are already in storage.

Thank you Sayu! I'm glad you liked it. I'm also happy to announce that I finally got the Breeze of the Quiet Lands, and I got 3 in a row after 2 rounds of overnight fishing. And just when I thought I can graduate from fishing in Lake Flondor, Quest#9 requires me to fish, again, in Lake Flondor!

 

My BDO life sux.

Ah the weekend warrior. 

To add to the list:

1. Along the lines of questing - don't 4get about the dailies 
Dailies that net you silver + contribution points which is essential to expanding your worker empire (a feature that all lifeskillers and/or weekend warriors should exploit)
Dailies that net you materials for your boat upgrades 
Dailies that net you silver and horse materials
To dailies that are tied to events that usually nets you a variety of rewards
Pick dailies that are inline with your long term goal 

2. Rifts - Over time those accessories will stack up for a good amount of profit.

3. Pk. All that frustration over the weekday, it's time to let loose and lay mayhem. Turn that Alt+C up and kill anything that moves. 
In all seriousness, if you have the gear probably a few rounds in rbf can also net you silver. Win/Loss. If you miss majority of node wars due to work/school like me, rbf kills two birds with one stone. Pvp and a lil bit of pocket change to save up for whatever you gunning for. Wish Shadow Arena was still a thing.

4. It's not all about the game. Be sure to interact with your fellow players, guildmates even enemies.

Thank you for your inputs Lagertha & Velsath.

 

I will see if I can include these in the specific activities in the coming weekends. Although I can already see myself focusin on the MoS until Sep 2nd. Currently on Q#10, and my sailing is super low, unless someone offers to sail for me while I look for the Event Porgy Hotspots. *wink.
