[Content]

  • You can now immediately enter the Altar of Blood only when you have finished the relevant level and the one before it (e.g. if you have knowledge of levels 2, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10, you can immediately enter levels 1, 2, 6, 7, 10).
  • Added new scrolls which are now available at the Campsite.
    • New scrolls will be available for the Campsite you can obtain for free as well.

The newly added [Camp] Adventurer’s Luck has been created to provide you a wider variety of options based on the purpose of hunting rather than to guarantee you the profitability of hunting.

The effects of this scroll can stack with the effects of other Item Collection Increase Scroll items. However, you should always consider the amount of Silver that must be paid in order to maintain the buff.

Unlike the effect of an Item Collection Increase Scroll, the Item Drop Rate Increase effect does not increase the number of looted goods, but increases the rate at which you obtain items. So depending on the situation, one could be a better option than the other.

  • Newly added buffs are as follows.
Buff Buff Effect Price
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck I Item Drop Rate +10% (60 min) 10,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck II Item Drop Rate +20% (60 min) 20,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck III Item Drop Rate +30% (60 min) 30,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck IV Item Drop Rate +40% (60 min) 40,000,000
[Camp] Adventurer’s Luck V Item Drop Rate +50% (60 min) 50,000,000
  • The [Camp] Adventurer’s Luck buff can stack with other buffs.
  • Changed the item description for the Adventurer’s Confidence Scroll as follows.
    • The above effects do not stack with that of Villa Scrolls.
  • Reduced the amount of Parley consumed when exchanging Tide-Dyed Standardized Timber Square at Wandering Merchant Ship.

[Quest]

  • NPCs will no longer exchange High-Quality Wines for Energy Recovery.

We have removed the feature in which you could recover your Energy by giving High-Quality Wines a Cooking Merchant sells to an Inn NPC.

This feature used to be a hidden way of getting a small reward by interacting with an NPC, but different from the time when BDO first started, the price of a High-Quality Wine is now affordable and consequently this item has become a way through which one can constantly recover Energy with Silver.

It was not an easy decision to make, since this feature was used by many players. However, preserving the value of various Energy-related contents such as Gathering, Conversation, and Secret Shop was more important to us. We hope you will understand our decision

We will continue making our best efforts to study and improve even the smallest feature in our game that may affect the value of the game’s content.

Thank you for your understanding.

※ Please note that Silver that equals the number of High-Quality Wine you possessed x200,000 has been sent to your in-game mailbox.

Also, the option to purchase High-Quality Wine from NPCs is back.

  • The order of the “Processing Knowledge List” from Processing UI – Imperial Cuisine will now be organized based on Cooking level, from high to low (e.g. Guru – Master – Artisan – Professional – and so on).
  • Fixed the issue where setting the Preset Quick Hotkey from Edit UI and running the UI settings reduced the Chat window to its minimum size.
  • Fixed the issue where the camera movement effect sometimes did not work when interacting with an NPC.
  • Added a button with which you can open the Barter Information window from the Load Cargo UI.
