Ultimate Pearl Shop Guide 2019 | Black Desert online


What is up my guys, it’s Kira here back with
another one. Today’s video we’ll be looking at the cash
shop in Black Desert Online. This will be a comprehensive guide on the
items available, what is worth purchasing, what is absolutely required and what is the
absolute minimum you need to spend. I’ll try my best to keep my opinion on the
overall cash shop out of the video , instead I’ll be going over every single pearl shop
item and their uses, personal value and pricing. As a general rule of thumb when I play cash
shop heavy games I tend to follow a basic principle. I’ll almost never buy things that I can earn
with in game currency or things that aren’t super necessary. As an example I consider pets to be totally
necissary and costumes to not be. Also for the sake of clarity, when I talk
about pricing I may substitute pearls for dollars, I will be valuing pearls at 100 per
dollar , though you can get more value when you buy more expensive packs. The game purchase price is between 10 and
40 dollars or euros when not on sale, it regularly goes on sale for 50% off though which is a
really good entry point. Personally I would only ever purchase the
very base package, as your money is spent better elsewhere in the game than what the
higher tier packages give you. The beginner package gives you nothing at
all except access to the game. Okay let’s look at what most people consider
an absolute hard requirement to make the game efficient. Alright so this is of course pets, you’re
going to want 5 pets in total and the game should give you one for free fairly early
on as a new player, so chances are you’ll have to purchase 4. Now if you’re unaware, pets loot items for
you while you’re free to do other things like kill monsters, looting without pets is super,
super inefficient. If you’re trying to spend as little as possible,
The pets you want to be buying are the 900 pearl ones as there’s no loot speed difference
between them and 1100 pearl pets. Now the best way to get pets actually is to
gift a friend or alternate account a basic copy of the game for $10 each time and get
the limited pets. You will want a hedgehog and polar bears. hedehog is without a doubt the most OP pet
in the game since it gives a chance to randomly obtain extra materials when gathering which
is crazy good. I don’t think this is available on xbox and
I know isn’t available on steam though. Polar bears give weight limit increase as
a passive and reduce fishing afk time, these pets are usually only part of expensive bundles
or via the gifting system. These pets are just factually much better
than the base ones but slightly more expensive, I’d say theyre super worth though to be honest. Now the second most important expense to playing
BDO is the value pack, which you can treat as basically the monthly subscription for
the game, this costs 1500 pearls per month and gives you enough buffs that I’d consider
it pretty mandatory to have.These are the buffs you get from the pack and I can’t imagine
playing the game without them, it just makes everything much better. If you are a new or returning player, you’ll
get roughly a month’s worth of value pack just for playing the game and depending on
your region this could be enough time to purchase a value pack for in-game silver, saving yourself
$15 a month potentially. I know in EU the value packs are heavily contested
but on NA at the time of this video they’re easily available. They cost 88 million silver which as a new
player sounds like a lot, but it’s really not in the grand scheme of things. You should easily be able to afford that silver
cost within your free month of value pack. So I’d say buy this if you absolutely can’t
get access to one via in-game means but just keep a pre-order up on one the whole time
you have the funds to do so and stockpile them for the future, saving yourself the sub
fee. After pets and value pack there’s nothing
I see as a hard requirement for the game, especially as a newer player. Obviously there’s a lot of stuff in the cash
shop that you’re going to want and a lot of it makes a big difference in the game but
like I said, nothing that I’d say you absolutely have to buy right off the bat. The three things that most people will recommend
to make your life way easier is inventory weight, slots and maids. Which of these will be best for you depends
entirely on how you play the game but please if you’re buying character bound items like
weight or slots, make sure you have found the class you’re going to play for many hours
beforehand. I put the short section with the absolute
necessary items at the start and now comes the long section going through the whole cash
shop in a bit more of a loose format for those of you that are interested in that. First up we have the function section which
will be the longest since it houses the most items. Weight
Weight comes in different amounts, starting from 600 pearls for 50 all the way to 1700
for 200, with even more packs like 250 and 300 available at limited times. Weight is a double edge sword, it’s amazingly
useful in all avenues of the game but it’s a one time use item for a character. Meaning it’s super expensive for rerolling
and altheavy playstyles. After you’ve decided you’re going to stick
to the game for a while and decided on your main character already then weight should
be a pretty high priority. If you do any kind of processing it’s pretty
much a requirement and helps a lot for long hours of grinding. You can purchase each weight once per character
in the pearl shop, you can also get weight for the loyalty tokens at a rate of 3500 tokens
per 50 weight and purchaseable 4 times, so that’s 35 days per 50 weight. Inventory expansion is pretty much the same
as weight, though used for different lifeskills. They’re also one time use character bound
items and you can have up to 192 total inventory slots per character. Ranging from 150 pearls per slot to 1450 pearls
per 16 slots, you can see that getting max inventory is a lot of money investment. Inventory slots I’d say are less worthwhile
than weight for me personally, you seem to end up with around 70 slots now for doing
the main questline and having an active value pack. This is more than enough for regular gameplay
but more is always going to be better, especially if you have any plans to do active or afk
fishing and or farming as lifeskills. I’d say personally wait for a sale on these
as you can get them for half price sometimes. Golden bell
Not much to say about this, I think you would be insane to buy it. 1800 pearls and it gives a 100% exp boost
to everyone on the server activated for 1 hour, actual fucking insanity. Don’t buy this, ever..Please. I bet you. Character slot expansion
Self explanatory, these are 600 pearls each, gives you a character slot up to a maximum
of 17. Having multiple characters is amazing for
a great many reasons such as leaving them at bosses, using as bank characters, using
as failstack holders, using as lifeskill alts and stacking energy to use. Super worth, not the highest priority and
definitely wait for a sale. Typically you can get these at a super discount
whenever a new character releases. Artisan’s memory
These allow you to recover 4 times the durability that you normally be able to when recovering
max durability. Comes in packs of 1, 10 or 100 for 50 , 450
and 4000 pearls respectively. Super pay to win item. Personally I see their value is higher than
any other way to spend your money in terms of game time invested v dollar invested, but
they do no increase your chance at succeeding enhancement. For this reason I’d say avoid purchasing these
like the plague, it’s legit just gambling. Yes you get to recover durability faster therefor
enabling you to technically have a higher chance at succeeding enhancement by having
more chances…But how bad would you feel if you buy $40 worth of these and still wind
up without succeeding and having no permanent growth on your account to show for it. Equipment tailoring coupon
This one is a weird one, it allows you to turn an in-game armor set that usually is
used for specific buffs such as amity, into a costume that goes over your armor so you
can wear your combat stats gear aswell as the costume. No one uses it for this reason so I’m not
sure why it exsists, basically what people use it for is to turn one of those items into
a costume then they melt the costume and it gives you a special crystal. These crystals are the only kind that can
be socketed into a cash shop outfit, which you must use a black spirit claw purchased
for in-game silver to add a socket to. I could be wrong here but I see that as the
only reason to do this. I’ve never used one because 1500 pearls doesn’t
seem worth, depending on how much you are a min-maxer it can be useful but I would 100%
try and buy it for in-game silver or wait for a heavy sale. Tears of the wind
This just resurects your mount, for 200 pearls. Absolutely fuck everything about this item,
just go pay the 40000 silver or whatever it is to resurrect your mount. Guild name change coupon
Pretty self explanatory, guilds in this game are a hard grind to level up so I can see
this being worth the 3000 pearls if you’re committed to a guild and the game. Guild master only Reset guild skill
Same as above, guild skills take a while to raise but I can’t see many situations where
you would have messed up the points so bad you’re willing to spend $20 to fix it. Black spirit emojis
Easy enough, 150 pearls for some emojis you can use in chat, they’re pretty cool to be
honest, they’re also account bound and you get 12 unique emojis with the purchase. Character name transfer coupon
Not to be confused with a character name change, this allows you to pay 500 pearls and transfer
the names between two character. Not my cup of tea but I can see it having
uses. Character name change coupon
1000 pearls to change 1 character’s name…Doesn’t really seem worth to me since you could delete
a low level alt, make a new character with the name you want then pay half the price
and transfer it, but hey each to their own. Family name change coupon
1000 pearls again, change the name of your overall family, can only be done twice and
takes until next maintenance which is on wednesdays in EU/NA. Megaphone
Consumed per use to speak in world chat which goes across every different channel so you’re
essentially being seen by everyone who has world chat enabled in their chat tab on your
respective region. 50 cents for 10 uses. Blacksmith books 50 and 100
Absolutely never buy these. I don’t envision a scenario where you’re going
to want to waste real money on this. You can buy the 50 version for in-game silver
so no idea what would posess you to spend 1000 pearls on 10 of these. The 100 version is 200 pearls each or 10 for
1500 and seems rather pointless since it’s actually hard to build a 100 stack and I don’t
see why with 17 character slots possible you would ever be in a position to have so many
that you need to put them in your inventory. Black spirit essence
Uses to safely remove a socketed crystal from equipment. When removing crystals without using this
you will lose the crystal, some crystals are very very expensive so this can be worth while…But
it’s such a niche case considering you’re not going to put mega expensive gems in gear
that you’re going to change often that you can probably get a few of these super cheap
on sale during events and that will be enough forever. I have 7 and I have legit zero idea where
I got them from. Brand stones
400 pearls each or in a bundle of 6 for 2000. These items have a 1 time use and reduce the
durability used by 50% on applied item, also reduces repair cost by 33% which is almost
pointless. Absolutely required for anyone who does any
kind of fishing, afk or active. Also can be used on weapons if you grind far
away from repair NPCs and/or have no camping tent to repair at. Though again there’s a clever way to get around
the durability issue if you have alts and maids. Bank your weapons with the maids, log into
your alt, take out the weapons and repair them, put them back into the bank and then
log into your character and use maids to remove them. Would never use on armor and not sure if they
have any other niche uses. Energy tonics and exp scrolls
Just going to bundle all of these into one short section. Don’t buy these, I have no idea in what world
anyone would spend money on this shit. Morco’s gear bag
I have no idea why you would ever want to buy this. It basically allows you to store I believe
up to 8 pieces of equipment in the box…But only equipment and not costumes like the Patrigio’s
costume bag for loyalty points. I’m not sure why you would have multiple sets
of gear that you need to change to very quickly. I guess you could use it to store your gear
but this is 1200 pearls and 8 storage slots is 225 . Let me know if you guys have a niche
use for this item that I haven’t seen before. Exp transfer coupons
2200 pearls to transfer the exp of one trade skill profession from a character to another,
this isn’t like name transfer where if you had one character at master 8 and one at master
2 they would just swap…This combines the exp onto that one character selected. I can see this having use, but with how cheap
it is to level up trade skills, unless you’re absolutely super high and have some really
great reason to swap, this is a hard pass. Stable expansion coupons
These increase the space for horses in the region per use for your whole account. So if it’s a serendia expansion it’s for glish
and heidel, for balenos it’s velia and olvia etc etc. Unlike the other expansion increases I have
never had the feeling that I would need to buy these, even when I used to do a little
bit of horse breeding and training as an afk lifeskill. Now that horses are worth way more money,
it’s super hard to actually sell them for full value with multiple coursers and dreams
sitting on the market. If you’re that way inclined and this is how
you intend to play the game they’re not bad value again since they are account wide and
give 2 stable slots per purchase. Maybe they’ll be more useful in the future
if breeding, taming or training is changed. I’d still wait for a sale even if you’re into
this area of the game though. Worker lodging expansion coupons
These are just mega worth it. You can only buy up to 4 of these per account,
they’re family wide, they’re 100 pearls per slot and in some cases give multiple workers
per region depending on the description. In places like Grana where the CP requirement
to rent a building is absolutely massive this is a must have for any lifeskiller or person
looking to make afk income. Yes you can use CP to buy lodging but the
more free CP you have, the more afk money you can make. High priority for committed players and I’d
buy them even not on sale. Storage expansion
These come in 1, 4 or 8 slots each purchase for the price in pearls of 25, 85 and 150
pearls for smaller towns and 40, 130 and 225 pearls for the main cities, so 2 dollars 25
for 8 slots in a city. Again, much like worker lodging these for
me are super worthwhile. Even when using multiple cities for multiple
purposes such as my setup of heidel for random things, glish for processing, velia for gear
and enhancing, grana for cooking etc…You will find yourself running out of space. There’s a lot of things in this game that
you want to hold onto and investing in CP in every single city isn’t exactly efficient. I wouldn’t put these as a super high priority
but they’re pretty up there for me. I’d 100% wait for a sale though, since they
do deals sometimes where you can spend roughly the same amount of money and get slots in
the whole region. I think I purchased mine when it was 8 slots
in serendia meaning heidel and glish for the same price as one or just slightly more. Elion’s tear
Allows you to revive in the same spot you died without losing exp. comes in 1/10/100,
for 50/450/4000 pearls respectively. Useful to have and I do make sure I keep a
few around in case I die to a boss or something but in general not a high priority to spend
money on. You get them from events semi frequently and
I’ve found myself having a lot of them saved up over the years. Now moving into travel aid, I’m not going
to include any of the packs of items because they’re usually time limited or base on events. Just the most commonly available stuff. Combat skill/exp exchange coupon
10000for this item. It transfers the exp and skill points between
two characters, cannot be used on characters below level 50. This means if I had a 350 skill point level
50 archer and a level 61 ranger with 1700 skill points and used this item, it would
swap them completely. I can see why people would buy this item but
for me, 100 dollars is fucking insane. This also doesn’t include weapon swaps which
means with tet weapons you’re about 4-6 billion silver away from being able to fully swap
characters and on top of that it doesn’t swap inventory slots and weight. If it swapped inventory and weight I could
see this being really worthwhile for some people but as it stands, unless you have a
lot of disposable income and not a lot of free time I’d hard pass on this one for real
for real. Ornette’s dark honey wine
All this does is increase your fairy’s exp bar, which can be done with in-game items
and in-game silver. If you’re super lazy and want to re-roll fairies
to try and min-max stats they’re way easier than buying out thousands of items on the
marketplace and feeding them to the fairy. It takes 25 of these I believe to make a level
1 tier 4 fairy reach level 40 to see all the skills but honestly for 3300 non-sale I’d
avoid this like the plague. Same thing with a lot of stuff in the shop,
it’s convenient to do and I know for a fact people buy them but your fairy could come
out dumb as a sack of potatoes and you’re 3300 pearls down the toilet still. Avoid, even if on sale. Value pack 90 days
This is just exactly the same as the 30 day value pack only it’s 90 days, I bet you never
would have guessed that right? It also comes with some energy tonics which
are okay I guess, some elion’s blessings which is just an elion’s tear we went over earlier
but revives you on full stats and most importantly 10x 1 hour item collection increase scrolls. Which increase your rare item drop rate and
trash loot from mobs for 1 hour. This is one of the only ways to get these
scrolls reliably and they increase your monster grinding money by a lot but it’s 45 dollars
and fuck everything about paying 4500 pearls for 10 hours of more loot. Main/sub/awakening weapon exchange coupon
3000 pearls. These allow you to transfer each respective
weapon to the weapon of an alternate class one time, including the enhancement level
and caphras stone level. If you have a tet or higher level weapon and
you are dead set on rerolling, they’re not bad value if you work out dollar value v in
game item value. Especially considering you can use this to
buy a pen for another class and transfer it to your class if you find one available. Super niche but not the worst dollar value
for an item in the shop. Personally I’ve never been in a situation
where I’d consider buying one but I can see a world in which they’re worth. Naphart Campsite
4900 pearls. This is the single most useful and yet hardest
to justify item on the cash shop for me. There’s an in-game available tent but it needs
to be constantly rebuilt to use over time which costs time and money, the pearl shop
one is just always available and does more things with zero maintenance cost. It has 16 inventory slots of up to 200 weight,
which is not family shared. Allows you to use any villa invitation in
your inventory to purchase any of the villa buffs which is just insanely broken. Allows you to repair gear, has a shop where
you can purchase potions and unique buffs and turn silver into gold bars which is not
important anymore since silver has no weight. This would be my priority if I were a dedicated
player, after pets and having a good balance of weight, inventory and maids…This is just
so brokenly good. I would 100% wait on a sale though. even on sale the cheapest I’ve seen it is
around 40 dollars which is still stupidly expensive but this guide isn’t about the prices,
it’s about how worth things are. I’d say if you’re dedicated to this game,
do long grinding sessions, grind in out of the way places, do bosses, endgame pvp…This
is a priority. Blessing of Kamasylve 15 days
1250 pearls, gives you +2 energy per tick, so baseline 3 energy per 3 minutes. Also increases item drop rate by 20% and has
additional loot drop in the now non-existant shadow arena which I assume will come back
in limited events one day. I love this item and I think it’s great, I
try and have it active whenever I can…But I have spent so much time afk in the game
over the last 3 years that I had a bunch of free ones saved up and I just use them when
I have spurts of mega active playtime. If you do a lot of energy based activities
or are brand new to the game these are super useful for boosting your ability to roll on
workers or power up gathering for money and skill gains. I wouldn’t personally put this as a priority
but again it’s how you play the game. Is an account wide buff. Sealed book of combat 15 days
1250 pearls. This book once opened has a 60 minute cooldown
and gives you a 24 hour buff of +50% exp and +20% skill exp. It can be moved between chaaracters so I treat
it as an account wide item but the exp does not stack with the +50% exp scrolls. These regularly sit on the marketplace and
are super easy to purchase with in-game silver. You also get them super frequently in-game
in a 7 day variant same as kama’s blessings quite frequent. Wouldn’t consider purchasing. Fairy Queen’s Might
1000 pearls This is the only item capable of resetting
a fairy, allowing you to attempt to get new skills. If you are lucky enough to get a t4 fairy
and it rolls terrible skills, I would consider this a high priority if you do end game pvp
and PvE or a lot of processing. The difference between a bad skilled fairy
and a good one is huge. Low priority but within the niche really worthwhile,
sale or not. Transaction and storage maids / butlers
1200 pearls each The transaction variant allow you to move
an item to or from the central marketplace warehouse from anywhere in the world up to
100 volume, meaning a stack of 100 every 20 minutes. They have their place in the game as the central
marketplace warehouse is global. The storage variant allows you to do the same
but with the limitation of the storage of the major region you are in and up to 100
weight at a time. I personally prefer the storage maids and
think the transactions are mostly not as good. These are a really high priority for purchasing
as they’re family wide, though I’d still wait for a sale as they go on 3 for 2 sale pretty
often. Cliff/armstrong guides
Cliff’s skill add on guide 30 days is 700 pearls allows you to freely swap the skill
bonuses for free at any skill instructor. Armstrong’s skill guide 30 days is 1400 pearls
or 1 day for 500, which allows you to reset your skill point allocation. Honestly both of these are terrible value
for money and I’d avoid purchasing them at any cost. You can swap skill addons for 1 memory fragment
each which is roughly 1.5 million silver each anyway and you get the skill resets fairly
frequently from events. The liklihood of you needed either of these
enough to spend that kind of money is slim. Outfits
Outfits come in two variants, classic at 2900 pearls which do not include an awakening weapon
skin or premium for 3400 which does. You can also buy the pieces for the outfits
individually for varying prices. Of course I can’t go into super specifics
on this because there’s so many unique outfits per class but generally they all do the same
thing. I wouldn’t ever personally buy an outfit because
they’re pretty easily purchaseable on the central marketplace for in-game silver…But
it can take a while to get the one you want if it’s not a super commonly sold one or event
specific. The buffs you get from an outfit are cool
but nothing crazy enough to spend that much pearls on. Of course this is purely subjective, the outfits
don’t give a big enough in-game boost for me to say they’re a priority but since the
visual progression in the game is so terrible you may be inclined to rush out and buy one. Costumes
Costumes come in 8 variants, I’ll give a quick brief overview of them and which ones I think
are a high priority in most normal play circumstances. Bear in mind all costumes are bound to characters,
so you can’t transfer them even to another character on your account with the same class. Pavilla costume – Aka the alchemy costume. This is great if you plan to do imperial alchemy
each week to make some passive income, you can use it to get down to really low alchemy
time I think around 1-2 seconds per craft. It also gives 15% alchemy exp which is negligible. High priority if you do a large amount of
alchemy, at 2200 pearls it’s the standard costume price and worth on sale or without
for the niche of alchemists. Da-Dum Da-Dum diving suit set – Aka the shark
suit, makes you move ridiculously fast in the water, use less stamina while swimming
and breathe under water for longer. I have one and I love it. If you plan to do a lot of ocean content which
there is a lot to do in the game this is really nice to have but at 2200 pearls it’s pricey. Even if you’re a sea enthusiast I’d wait for
a sale on this one. Splat fisher’s clothes set – Aka fishing costume. This is honestly really useless, with +2 fisher’s
clothing and the guild buff that most guilds have of +3 you’ll reach the cap of +5 fishing
skill really easily, the only benefit is the swimming speed but the shark is better, 2200
pearls for not much use. Canape – The cook’s clothes are probably the
most useful out of everything here, practically everyone does cooking and for good reason. If you check out my cooking video at the link
on screen or on my channel, you’ll see why. Cooking is really a pain without these, you
can get to sub 2 second cooking with this outfit and a few other buffs and that makes
cooking a great source of income. A lot of people suggest cooking for contribution
points also which is the best way I’ve found to get them at low effort and for this you
would want the cook’s outfit. Top priority for most players and a must have
as any committed player, with or without sale I’d pick this up at 2900 pearls, it also doubles
as a combat buff outfit, extra spicy value. Treant Camouflage – The tree ghillie suit. This has a +1 gathering buff, which again
like the fisher’s clothes is pretty much useless. This is a ghillie suit though so as a full
set effect allows you to hide your character name from other players during open world
gameplay. Makes it harder for people to fight you, to
see you and adds the element of fear to your enemies. This doesn’t give you much of an advantage
but psychologically it kind of does, I’m always way less inclined to fuck with someone that
is in a ghillie…Those boys usually take the game serious. At 3400 pearls it’s pricey and it replaces
your outfit buffs, so it’s slightly worse for grinding efficiency but they’re mega cool. Purely subjective and worth it if you’re into
open world pvp. Desert Camouflage – The desert ghillie, this
is indentical to the tree ghillie in every way except instead of a gathering buff gives
a desert debuff resistance buff which is at least semi useful in comparrison. Obviously better than the tree one for fighting
in sandy areas due to the fact it’s…a desert ghillie and there’s not much green in the
desert. Again 3400 pearls. Venia riding attire – The horse trainer’s
clothes, 20% increased exp for your horse while riding it. This is super niche for the people who train
horses while afk. Like I said earlier in the video, horse training
isn’t the best right now in my opinion due to horses rarely selling but if you like the
breeding/taming aspect of the game and plan to do that you can still make decent money
in large chunks from selling them to imperial delivery for half the retail price. 2200 pearls and niche, not a priority by any
stretch but each to their own. Venecil Dress set – The french maid costume! Or the guy in a suit. Yay for gender locked classes. This is processing costume, allows you to
process directly from your bank instead of from your inventory..Finished materials do
go into your inventory though. Allows you to process afk for much longer
than without, even going all night processing slower materials such as ore with high character
weight limits. Super useful for making afk money and combines
really well with other lifeskills such as cooking and trading. A must have for lifeskillers in my opinion,
high priority. 2200 pearls. Purchase with or without sale. Underwear – Yep this is a thing. It gives you +1 luck which states it increases
drop rate but I’m not sure by how much. Pretty much just a cosmetic choice for most
of us and why not, half of this game is making a cool looking character. 700 pearls, though you can get them on sale
very often and personally I’d wait for one. Accessories – Glasses increase chance of gaining
monster knowledge and are 500 pearls, ear rings do the same but to a lesser extent for
500 pearls also and the mouth nose and chin slot for piercings etc don’t do anything that
I’m aware of for 200 pearls. Again, cosmetic choices are your own, nothing
here is a high priority. Moving onto interior this will be a short
section as nothing here is a priority. Having a bed and or a bookcase isn’t a terrible
thing. Beds allow you to lay down afk and you’ll
generate 2 extra energy per tick, so with a blessing of kama you can lay in bed and
gain 5 energy every 3 minutes. You can buy or craft beds in-game but they
give only + 1 energy per tick. Pretty good for powering an energy activity
either way but nothing amazing. Bookcases allow you to set characters to read,
gaining a random knowledge every 60 minutes of reading, this can be a knowledge of anything
including things you have, you can do this on multiple characters but it’s a big pain
in the arse to set to read on multiple characters every 60 minutes. A few other items from the sets have minor
buffs but nothing crazy. Honestly nothing in here is that greatly needed
and if you’re looking to make a cool looking house that’s entirely up to you. I’d pass on all this, but it’s great for roleplayers
and people looking to be more imersed in the world. It is worth noting the price of sets are about
2500 pearls for a full furniture set , with beds selling alone for 500, bookshelfs for
300. It is worth noting that the floor and wall
decorations are 1 time use, so if you purchase them and decide to remove your ownership of
a house you lose them. The rest of the furniture you can pickup and
move to other locations, houses are family bound also. First we have the Mount Skill Change coupon,
allows you to change one mount skill and get another unlearned skill at random. Can be purchased for 250 pearls or 11 for
2500. Avoid these like the plague unless you have
researched how to correctly use them and have a low level tier 8 horse you plan to turn
into a courser. Honestly I would just avoid spending the $25
dollars or more on this and buy a courser, take your pick of the hundreds on the market
and spend 800 something million. If you’re dead set on making your own courser
these are a requirement. Reset mount Growth – I didn’t actually even
know this was an item before I started this video, that’s how you know this cash shop
is massive. Okay so apparently this is 1600 pearls, resets
your mount to level 1, resetting all the skills and stats. I’m not sure in what world you would want
to buy this, I guess maybe someone will find a super obscure reason but yeah, no. Mount all skill training coupon – Another
useless overpriced item, 1800 pearls and all this does is train the already learned mount
skills to 100%, you can save yourself $18 here and spend an hour doing it yourself,
they’re not super hard to level up just takes a bit of time using them repeatedly. Mount Name Change coupon – 200 pearls, change
your mount’s name. Nothing crazy here
Horse breeding reset female and male – As you may or may not be aware horses come in
different genders, the male horses have the ability to breed twice and the females once. Each horse can be reset once, meaning if you
cash shop it up you can have a male breed 4 times and a female twice. The female reset is 640 pearls and the male
is 330. Not sure how this makes sense but again, breeding
being RNG you’re very likely to waste a lot of money here not getting what you want. You’re much better off avoiding these items
entirely. Mount brand spell stone – 500 pearls, works
similar to a weapon brand stone, reduces the resurrection cost to 1000 silver and durability
consumption on mount gear to 50%, honestly really terrible value and I’d say to avoid
this. Horse appearance change coupon – 600 pearls,
does what it says on the tin. Change what your horse looks like to a bunch
of pre-sets. Premium horse appearance change coupon – 900
pearls, same thing except this can allow your horse to learn another skill once used. This is actually quite useful if you have
a horse that is 1 skill away from being a courser and only has 1 or 2 skills left to
learn, it’s still gambling and again I’d say to just buy a horse but it has that use as
opposed to the other which is purely cosmetic. Mount skill training coupon – Same thing as
the all skill training coupon except 200 pearls and for a single skill at a time, really come
on now. Nope. Extra mount exp scroll – Same as the other
exp scrolls, worthless. Horse flute – Comes in 1 day , 7 day and 30
day varients. From 100 300 and 700 pearls respectively. Allows you to hotkey it and call your horse
from quite a large distance and it comes running to you or teleports if it’s quite far, has
quite a large distance. These are actually super useful and I have
a permanent one from the highest tier package of the game I believe it was from…I use
it constantly but I’d never be able to justify spending 700 pearls per month on it. If you can get a permanent one they’re really
good, if not just run to your horse. Horse/camel armor sets – These are pretty
much the same as outfits, they can be listed on the marketplace but are very very rarely
ever actually listed so if you want one you’ll have to probably pay the iron price…Or pearls
I mean. 2000 for a set, comes with 4 pieces, the main
body piece gives 500 hp, 2% acceleration on the head piece, 500 stamina on the saddle
and +2% turn speed on the stirrups. The whole set increases chance to learn a
skill on level up for horses by 10% and overall set increases movespeed by 1%. If you’re a horse breeder or trainer you’re
going to want one of these purely for the 10% chance of learning a skill. Otherwise cosmetic inspired players will want
one too because who doesn’t want a cool looking horse right? Applies the exact same for the camel sets
except camels are only used in the desert so much less of an opportunity to use them. Fishing boat skins – They’re just minor buffs
for fishing boats and cosmetic changes. I’ve never used a fishing boat and I’m not
sure why you would want to but another niche market I guess. Skin buffs are increase load capacity, speed
and turning for overall set. 2000 peals. Not worth in my opinion. Wagon sets – These are the same as the fishing
boat skins only for wagons. Wagons are really good for training horses
as technically it’s faster to train 4 horses at once than it is to train 1, so the extra
1% speed from this is good for that. At 2000 pearls though I’d say just level your
horses 1% slower. Pets
The pet section is super straight forward, pets loot items as we’re all aware, 1100 pets
usually just look cooler. Each pet type has a certain passive skill,
desert foxes give increased heat resistance in the desert, cats find resources, dogs detect
hostile players, hawks detect rare monsters etc etc. The only pets that are super useful other
than their main function of looting are the ones I talked about earlier, the polar bear
and hedgehog, also the penguin has auto fishing time reduced. Also every pet has a certain type, such as
limited, premium, event and classic, pets can only be combined with other pets of the
same type with the exception of a wizard gosphy which is a 1650 pearls pet that can do all
types. pets can be ranked up from original purchase
of tier 1, to tier 2, 3 and 4. To do this you must combine pets and it’s
one of the most cost heavy investments to the game. Each rank of pet tier increases the loot speed
of the pets, with 4 being really much better than 1 but people generally saying 5x t3 pets
are good enough. This is a large investment and should only
be done if you’re mega invested in the game or managing to buy them for in game silver
on the marketplace in my opinion. There’s also some pet houses which are just
housing items for 400 pearls, they’re just housing furniture purely cosmetic. And some feeding items, you can cook your
own feed or buy it for a small fee from the marketplace, avoid this like the plague. Beauty okay so we’re finally at the end, feels
like forever. The beauty section of the cash shop only has
a few things worth talking about and zero things worth buying in my opinion. The Merv’s palette comes for free with a value
pack so is worthless at 1000 pearls, which is 500 pearls less than a value pack??? Not sure why that’s even in here. Bleach removes dyes for 50 pearls, again you
can remove dyes with merv’s palette for free using the value pack. Appearance change coupons for 800 pearls single
use and 1000 pearls 30 days…Again this is included in the value pack, I didn’t even
know these things were in here and no clue why anyone would buy them. The dye boxes are rng boxes that give 1 time
usage dyes.. Avoid this lootbox experience unless you have
some serious customisation goals. And finally that’s it. Holy. I’d say if you want to join into BDO I’d consider
the game a $50-100 game and that’s your seed money to actually get some enjoyment out of
it. For me is it worth that price? Hell yeah it is, I’ve had thousands of hours
of gametime in this no joke. I’ve spent probably close to $400 myself since
2016 and I have no regrets. I’m not a fanboy or anything, I don’t play
as much as I used to and pretty much just play for node wars now and afk/lifeskilling
for money while I take a break, mostly to work on youtube stuff. But I do still like the game a lot and at
that price point I’d say for sure give it a go. If you do plan to start playing, buy the game
for 5-10 dollars and test it out, if you feel like the combat is fun and you’re interested
then buy some pets and go from there. Thanks for watching guys, I have been kira

  1. Thanks for making this video. You did a great job explaining everything and made it understandable for a new player like myself.

  2. me two year ago " I only need t1 pets"

    6 months later

    me: "well some better pets would be nice. and some weight and inventory"

    3 months later

    me: "well I should get a outfit and like 2 maids"

    1 year later

    me today:" I need to buy all the storage to save cp, I must get all worker lodgings, get t4 pets, get full inventory, weight, lots of alts for gathering, oh and a tent."

    cash shop is a slippery slope.

  3. Mate, even if this video was rubbish in terms of information (Which it's not) I would still watch it because you're fuckin hilarious. Nice job man.

  4. lol says only the base game is worth it because the other versions don't give anything worth buying but then claims pets and value packs worth buying….the higher packages include value packs and pets.

  5. i cant stop laught[ i dont know why the fuck they put the thing on this with 2000 pearl with fucking useless item] LOL HAHAHAHA

  6. Lmao hilarious video but also helpful, one thing tho is the underwear its not just for the looks and the +1 luck, it actually activates the 8 set effect from a normal combat costume which is why i bought one

  7. This game will be censored soon, on the ps4 here is the reason why on the Xbox was told that the ps4 would have a huge issue with the sexy come off of this game.

  8. Morco's Gear Bag is useful for switching from combat armor to weight enhanced armor for gathering/processing. At least that's what I use them for. I had to get two of them since there's not enough slots in one bag for both armor/weapons and accessories.

  9. I think my only problem is the non social aspect of the game. Everything is so focused on grinding that making a thick sorceress in thigh highs that barely fit her almost feels useless cause you cant really share it. On the other hand you can make a thick sorceress with thigh highs that barely fit her…

  10. Patrigios bag is very useful if you use different items to over compared to pvp, especially if you use completely different builds, IE, AP va. ACC or AP to grind and DP to pvp. I main witch and this is how I use it. Very helpful.

  11. Thank you for this detailed video.  I was on the fence about giving this a try and now I have a much greater understanding.  This is too much like a second job and you saved me from finding out the hard way.  I wish you every success sir.

  12. Speaking of Artisans Memory..my bf legit quit the game after spending probably $700 in less than a year on enhancing items using that item..that will help me not spend my money on such a worthless gamble LOL thanks for the tip on it being basically not worth it.

  13. I know this is old, but a niche use of the outfit box would be for PvP. For instance, I'm a ninja and have a DP/Eva gear set and another set focused for AP. If a fight is lasting too long, I use that box to switch to my AP and then end it.

  14. Equipment tailoring coupon makes the least sense. Glamour system in bdo is one of the lamest. Everyone looks the same with our without cash shop outfits.
