Opinion To Improve Quality of BDO Life

In anything that we do, it seems progress is always the goal.


But to what extent?


Is Progress the end all be all?

 

In my almost 2 years playing BDO, jugling it with real life, I realized that progress is a goal, but should only come at a minimum cost. By practicing some good habits when playing, you improve your irl quality of life, in turn improving your BDO Quality of Life.

 

How did I do this?

 


Prep For Active Gameplay


By active gameplay, I mean anything in the game that will require you to focus on it for more than an hour or two. These includes grinding, boss scroll runs, node wars, etc. You can do some stretching to warm up, shower, coffee, anything to keep your blood active before you face the computer. These are some of things you can do to make sure you finish your grind rotation, or get to that last boss, or at least stay focused enough to finish whatever it is you started.

 

 

 

AFK Gaming Activities


BDO has a great afk gaming system that lets you progress your Lifeskills or dummy training for combat exp, even when you cannot attend to it. There are also other activities you can do while AFK gaming. Some of these include playing with the Beauty Shop, composing in the Music Album, and the new and improved Black Spirit Adventure!

 

 

 

 

Making Friends


Part of what makes BDO alive for me, is the social aspect. As an MMORPG, you literally play with the whole region, SEA to be exact. For the past several months, most if not all of us have been on lockdown, and unless you live with your family, you were confined to be by yourself for a long period of time, which can drive anyone a little cucko. There are a lot of spots in BDO where people hang out just to chill and catch up with strangers from all over, which may include World and Field Bosses, Grinding Spots and even just a random roof in Velia.

 

 

 

 

Joining A Guild


You can definitely play BDO without joining a guild. But part of the fun is playing with like minded people, aiming to achieve goals and progress together. Why do Vell on your own, when you can do it with your guild? Having trouble looking for a grinding party? Ask in Guild! Joining a guild also includes perks like daily salary, guild quests, guild bosses like Khan, and guild buffs. Personally, guild activities is a fun way to work with your guild and catch up, like crafting armor for the War Elephant, and equipment for the Guild Galley, and if you like paying taxes, you and your guild can get a Guild House.

 

 

 

 

These are just a few things from my experience that makes my quality of life in BDO better. Everyone aims to progress in the game, be it in combat or Lifeskills, but it shouldn't cost you an arm and a limb, progress for the sake of progress by literally exchanging your life force will cost you in the long run (i.e. sitting for long hours increases your mortality).

 

 

These small things help keep things chill, and ensure that BDO is a game in our life, not the other way around.

To be honest, most of my guildies are super busy. I had to make an event right after we do Vel just to get everyone together.

 

We might update this photo before the end of the year.

This suggestion is counter productive for BDO. Although whenever I do not feel like being in BDO while AFK, I try my best tobe productive irl, with a huge emphasis on TRY. But as a Supporter, lots of AFK time gives me more time to think of what to write and actually finish writing them ahead of posting schedule.
