Hey Adventurers, 

 

Good day. My name is Kuurotsuki - a lifeskiller in the world of BDO and BDO SEA Supporter.

To establish my credentials as a lifeskiller, see my lifeskill levels below: (Will add once my game finishes installing)

 

This guide aims to provide a sample progression guide for gathering and potential costs for lifeskill gear. Please note that this guide will only cover suggested gear combinations - Loggia, Geranoa, and Manos. 

 

Disclaimer: This is only a recommendation. Please feel free to mix and match as you please.

 

Gathering is one of the highest income lifeskill there is and is a recommended daily activity for starting lifeskillers. I personally follow a Gather -> Grind -> Gather regime to take advantage of high silver income from these  activities. Let's take a look at some gear combinations for gathering and the cost related to it given the current market price. Gear simulated via https://bdoplanner.com. Lifeskill level based on my experience on what is the recommended lifeskill level matches the gear.

 

600 or below mastery: 

Magic Butcher Knife / Magic Fluid Collector

Cost: 1.24M Silver / 70k Silver

Silver/Mastery: N/A

Notes: Magic butcher knife / Magic fluid collector or any other magic tool is a good beginner tool to test the waters for gathering. The tool is non-repairable however hence the need to bring multiple copies per trip. Magic butcher knife disables mastery and gather yields is similar to 650 mastery. 

 

650 Mastery: 

Total cost: 798M

Gear  Mastery Cost Cost/Mastery
TET Loggia Gathering Clothes 200 407,000,000 2,035,000
Leight's Fluid Collector 200 50 CP N/A
TRI Loggia Ring 24 67,000,000 2,791,667
TRI Loggia Earring 24 67,000,000 2,791,667
TRI Loggia Necklace 28 60,000,000 2,142,857
TRI Loggia Belt 28 63,000,000 2,250,000

Gathering level: Apprentice 10

Notes: 

 

 

 

800 Mastery: 

Total cost: 1,739M (1.7B)

Gear  Mastery Cost Cost/Mastery
TET Loggia Gathering Clothes 200 407,000,000 2,035,000
Leight's Fluid Collector 200 50 CP N/A
TET Loggia Ring  32 229,000,000 7,156,250
TET Loggia Earring 32 222,000,000 6,937,500
TET Loggia Necklace 40 209,000,000 5,225,000
TET Loggia Earring 40 221,000,000 5,525,000

Gathering level: Professional 9

Notes: In my opinion, this is the start of formal lifeskilling as the investment required are now in billions. 

 

 

 

1000 Mastery: 

Total cost: 3.5B 

Gear  Mastery Cost Cost/Mastery
TET Carta Gatherer Clothes 250 1,110,000,000 4,440,000
TET Manos Fluid Collector 300 2,830,000,000 9,433,333
TRI Geranoa Ring 36 365,000,000 10,138,889
TRI Geranoa Earring 36 462,000,000 12,833,333
TRI Geranoa Necklace 45 398,000,000 8,844,444
TRI Geranoa Belt 45 326,000,000 7,244,444

Gathering Level: Artisan 4

Notes: Skipped Blue Gather Tool as this requires FS. It's best to go directly to TET Manos tool. 

*Prices based on buying from CM. Cost of making it yourself may vary based on your RNG. 

 

 

 

1250 Mastery (exp oriented): 

Total cost: 24B

Gear  Mastery Cost Cost/Mastery
TET Manos Gatherer Clothes 300 4,880,000,000 19,520,000
TET Manos Fluid Collector 300 2,830,000,000 9,433,333
TRI Manos Ring 65 3,220,000,000 49,538,462
TRI Manos Earring 65 3,410,000,000 52,461,538
TRI Manos Necklace 75 3,170,000,000 42,266,667
TRI Manos Belt 75 3,210,000,000 42,800,000

Gathering level: Artisan 8 (Reaching Guru 1 with this kit will allow you to have 1415 Mastery) 

Notes: Skipped TET Geranoa accessories as this will be the lifeskill gear that you'll spend the most time in as the next upgrade is going to be hefty. 

 

2000 Mastery: 

Total cost: 127B - 150B (Depending on how much you'll spend for the PEN Tool)

Gear  Mastery Cost Cost/Mastery
PEN Manos Gatherer Clothes 400 30,400,000,000 76,000,000
PEN Manos Fluid Collector 400 5,550,000,000 13,875,000
TET Manos Ring 90 15,900,000,000 176,666,667
TET Manos Earring 90 16,800,000,000 186,666,667
TET Manos Necklace 105 16,000,000,000 152,380,952
TET Manos Belt 105 15,200,000,000 144,761,905
Khan Life 25 5,000,000,000 200,000,000

Gathering level: Guru 28 

Notes: WAIT A MINUTE. Where's 1500 1750 Etc? Why skip to 2000? Going from 1250 and above is just a matter of preference or choice in practicality. I wanted to show what 2000 mastery looks like and the costs associated with it at the current time. The amount of time it takes to recover the investment in terms of gear for higher mastery than 1415 (Guru 1 with the previous set up) with the difference in yield is going to take hundreds of hours. For context, each gathering bracket will only be an average yield of 7M - 15M per hour versus the previous bracket as the growth is linear.

I also did not mention Geranoa Accessories in the final bracket as the availability is very low / supply is nonexistent. 

 

P.S. This guide is an over simplification and there are obviously other things to consider. Please do raise questions below and I'll do my best to answer. You can also ping me via BDO SEA Official Discord - Kuurotsuki.
