How To Make A Unique Character Look

Black Desert Online has been around for a few years now, with that time frame, you'd expect that players have made more unique looks to make themselves stand out from the crowd, this is somewhat true.


When creating a character, often times players just pick the default look OR apply the most popular look for that class, this is all well and good, but this is the reason why we end up with a lot of characters looking like you clicked the smile emoji hundreds, or even thousands of times.


It's possible that some players feel like they cannot be bothered to spend time to edit their character's looks but bellow I will share my tips on how I made my characters look unique, while still applying my signature aesthetic. With Black Deserts Beauty Shop, it's more user friendly than you think.

 


Head Customization


This part covers 2 sections, face and hair. There are tons of sliders for each section, and sublte adjustments can make a huge difference, from ugly to pretty, to ugly pretty and from edgy to downright monstrous, the possibilites are endless! The face type will give you a base, and from there, make your imagination go wild! For hair, there are limited options, although there are 3 new hairstyles released for all classes earlier this year. Some hairstyles can be tweaked to make it longer, or even have cat ears!

 

 

 

Body Customization


This section is a bit more limited compared to the head customization. The ways you can edit the body will depend on your class. For example, the tallest wizard does not reach mid-height striker, and Shai body size can only be maxed to a certain point. This is something you need to consider when making your character, regardless of the combat aspect. With the right combination of shape (includes height), muscle (just for muscle tone) and skin color (can be found in Face section), you can still manage to turn Fiona into FEEOOOONNNAA (No Green skin sadly).

 

 

 

Outfit Styling


For anyone who knows me, I think they can tell that this is my favorite part. If Outfits give AP, I'd be a 500 AP DK at level 58. This section, is not about buying an outfit, slapping it on and voila, let's go on an adventure. This section is about styling your outfits, to make them look like a totally new set that you can comfortably stand beside everyone on the Central Market and still stand out. A recent update also included free, non pearl outfits, designed to look like the armor pieces, so now you don't even need to get Pearls.

 

 

 

Merv's Palette Combinations


The last but definitely NOT the least, is Merv's Pallette Combinations. You can opt to skip sections 1 to 3 (not recommended), and still make a unique look with just this 1 tool. This is because your color combination is the first thing that people see, and even from afar, your friends can tell that it's you. Some may argue that this is kind of a waste, as it's rented dyes, and that's true. But personally, unless there was a way to get specific colors with no RNG involved, if you really want to have THAT color, then this is the only option available.

 

 

 

In the coming weeks, i will update each section with details on how I did these on my characters. Just always keep in mind, when you strive to look different, you do not exactly aim to look like the society dictated standard of beauty. Self expression through personal style, and being your unique self is a strong statement of confidence, beauty and character.

Hi Urzan,

 

The most complex is the face section, which has ver detailed sliders, particularly the face shape bit. If you give it a bit of time, it's actually quite fun making different unique looks.

I understand your concern Prawi. If you ask me, if there was another way to get the exact dye I want and have it permanently, I'd choose that. But this is the only way right now.

@Veonya, so your color combo was made by Eve? I think this has become one of your look's signatures. Egg blue is very...shai.

there is. Don't rent merv, don't even recommend it, and let the customisation monotonous. Only use permanent dyes when you have those. 3 black colors of your choice are on sale for 18 pearl (3x per family) right now and no RNG. Go grab those.

@Prawi, I wish they'd do that for more colors. They've done that 2x or more only for black. Sometimes when I do get a dye that fits my color combination I save them for when I get more and can color a complete outfit.
