    A real good laugh. Before it was kind of a useless system where youd blow things up if you were lazy. It was a good answer to lazy people.

    Now? Oh my god it is horrific. Before you have some reason to use it, now its cost for gains is so laughable I dont even know why they added it.

    No one is gonna nuke enhanced gear for a CHANCE to get a +1 on an existing stack. As far as a viability goes, It is thousands of times cheaper to go the RNG route.

    Before it was clearly cheaper to take the RNG route but if you were lazy not a horrid sacrifice. Now? I really want to see a dev note on why this change was made. I REALLY wanna know what on Earth made them change this already useless system to a literal meme.


    PLEASE DEVS! Tell me the thought process! I am baffled, I need an explanation!

    This is why that meme of the guy being kicked out of the building through the window makes so much sense for this game...

    In-com-pe-ten-ce. Blatant one.

    I had a look at the rates with various pieces if gear I had.
    its all RNG based. A simple example would be to get a 100% success rate on a 40 stack. You need to devour a DUO piece of armor. Thats 50-70m for only +1 on your stack. The higher the stack that RNG has a dramatic shift too. A +15 item on a 40 stack has a 50% chance to get you +1. 35mill for a 50/50 shot at going from 40-41.

    Like, holy hell PA. I'm not even mad... Im just astounded at how bad this idea is.

    its garbage, and we can't use reblath only green or higher

    I did not took a pic but, a pri weapon give +5 fs on a 20 fs at 100%
    26 millions silver to bypass the rng and get 5 fs on a 20 fs
    a pri weapon give 20 fs if you are at 0 fs and then you use another you are well over 50m for a 25 fs
    30 dragon scale give a 20 fs for 13.5 millions
    350 dragon scale give a 40 fs for less then 160 millions

    if you can find a tet armor for less then that, buy it. They give 40 fs and weapons are 45 fs

    seems only slightly useful for when your grinding in spots that have a lot of weapon/armor drops and you don't wanna head back to town

    Lol okay then let's remove it.... No need for it

    Not sure why people are really whining about this.... It's another added way to boost the success rate from trash items

    Guess people whine about everything

    Btw you know your fail stack needed to be at 0 to use it?

    It's just another way to increase your fail stack success rate and not a main way of doing it really. **** should be happy they gave another way to increase it a bit.

    It makes me wonder if some of PA devs give conferences about game design and how to balance economics and random enhancement systems. They truly have a lot to teach others.

    dont be naive, its for rich people so they can juice up their stacks for silver (press f3 to obtain weekly) so they can be more confident about rng croning their new blackstar weapons to pen. bonus enticement - traditional weapon system in developement! :D

    Is it though, when the price of increasing chances is far higher than the marketplace price for the final item?

    whats your estimate on pen jewelry or blackstar? :)

    why not feed the stack with few cheapo green pens.




    btw, someone said devour works only up to 200 stack.

    Q. For the last question, please tell us how you'll develop and manage BDO moving forward

    Jae-sang Joo: We're of course going to do our best. Not only will we work hard, but we'll do well. Please continue to show love and support for Black Desert Online.

    Jae-suk Jang: I feel the same. I'll sincerely do my best.

    Jae-hee Kim: Black Desert Online is our very first title. It's a game that grew to what it is today with its players. Now that we're self-servicing the game, we'll pay more attention to the management side of BDO and quickly fix 'inconveniences' that the players may feel.

    Do-sung Go: The root of BDO's IP is its online features. That's why we're putting a lot of emphasis on that part. We'll do our best to keep Black Desert Online fresh and entertaining, whether it be 5 or 10 years from now. Please watch over and root for us!
