Tips on Completing Character and Ecology on H

Probably the most ironic sets to be paired with obtaining Character knowledge being one of the easiest to obtain, while Ecology is one of the hardest, for me.


I find obtaining Character knowledge easy because a lot of them are available upon your first interaction with the NPC, eventually some of them will require dialogue and amity, but even without measurement, I think it's safe to say, a huge percentage of this Knowledge section is obtained through interaction.


Ecology I find harder to obtain due to the amount of time it requires. Unlike other sections in H, and totally on the other of the spectrum with the Character section, Ecology requires you to obtain raw knowledge by killing monsters. It's mostly just you camping an area and killing the mob until you get the knowledge, as it is also RNG, some mobs will take 2 kills, others, 1 day.

 

Below are some of the things that made doing these 2 sections easier.

 


Complete By Area

 

This is probably 1 tip that you'll see repeatedly mentioned in this series as I personally rearranged the list to be completed by area rather than by section. I made this to ensure I do not go back and forth in a location.


To site an example:


Character > Finto Farm > Velia > Loggia Farm > Bartali Farm > Marino Farm > Toscani Farm
Ecology > Exiles of Mediah > Goblins > Beasts > Imps


By doing these in this order I started from the right hand side of the map (East of Velia), and worked my way to the left (West of Velia). I was able to target mutliple sub sections on both Character and Ecology knowledge categories in 1 swoop VS if I followed the list provided by the category which looks more like:


Residents of Velia > Velia Merchants > Velia Farm > Wester Camp > Foreigners
Beasts > Imps > Goblins > Exiles


For Character, If I followed the list provided per category in H, I would have to go back to Velia for the foreigners. For Ecology, Beasts are all over the area, completing it first would mean multiple back and forths, rather than completing it as you complete the rest of the location.


NOTE: Balenos area is 1 of the fastest to complete as it is part of the starting location, naturally you might have gotten some of the knowledge when you first started.

 

Have The Right Buffs

 

These 2 sections, Character and Ecology are the knowledge sections that can be boosted with food and potion buffs. Some NPCs will require a certain amity level before you can have a dialogue with them to obtain the NPC knowledge, either for themselves of another NPC. For Ecology, it requires you to obtain the knowledge by killing the mob multiple times, hence the buff will directly increase your already slim chance.


For Character, Amity Gain Food (Five-Grain Chicken Porridge) and Amity Gain Potion (Elixir of Amity).


For Ecology, [Oasis] Simple Cron Meal as Knowledge Gain Food, and Weenie Elixir as Knowledge Gain potion.


NOTE:

For Character: Outfits also help boost amity gain. 15% from Crafted outfits, 10% from Pearl shop outfits.

For Ecology: Use bird pets. They provide a + on Knowledge Gain.

 

Give Completion Time and Patience

 

This will be a standard for completing these 2 sections, the other sections and probably almost anything in Black Desert Online. Set a schedule to do 1 area and do not stop (unless you really have to), until you have completed that section. If it took you the whole day to finish 1 area and don't have the energy to continue another area the next day, then do something else. You can always go back to that next area the next time you have more time, or have nothing else to do.


Personally, I do these knowledge hunts in between money making in-game events. If theres an event in BDO that will earn me Silver, I prioritze that. I only do these knowledge hunts when I have an absolutely free schedule for the day, and will have the patience to complete an area of knowledge.
