    Hi.

    Looking for new mmorpg, but I read that Black Desert has no level cap. So I assume its pretty impossible for someone with a job (limited time) to ever catch up.

    I heard that BDO PvP community is pushing for equalized gear? Is this true? And more importantly... Does BDO even have instanced arena PvP?

    expect to spend at least 6 months for the tedious work before pvp, thats if u play for more than 10 hours a day, otherwise expect a year before bothering to pvp, u gonna get 1 shot by people.

    its pretty much impossible to catch up now

    I am not ready to spend that much time to become competitive.

    Thank you for the answer.

    No equalized gear
    No (good) instanced arenas
    Homogenized stat/gear builds
    Extremely high entrance requirements


    People say this is a pvp game, but the devs seem to have forgotten that.


    You may get someone telling you that it’s not that bad. But the fact that they have to come at you with a glass half full argument should let you know off the bat that this isn’t something you should waste your time on, let alone your money.

    Easier than ever to catch up,Anything to the contrary is a lie.

    No. Just the loud minority.

    Yes it does.

    ,

    That all said is the game worth playing now? Depends on your tastes.

    If you are an egotist then this is not the game for you.
    If you are not an egotist then there is plenty of fun to be had.

    Hey @Choqe - I would advise to check out any number of guides and video tutorials out there to get a good idea of building your character and gear up. Also, know there are plenty of other parts to BDO than just PvP!

    Just fish for a year AFK, work on energy on the weekends and farm the Night vendor with alts often, if you plan on playing solo. If your in a good guild, run scrolls with them and make sure you don't do any type of active grinding without a group of strong people, (Bare minimum 230 AP and 290-300 DP) or else that group is worthless to. The non-thought out renown system has literally ruined BDO's PvP for new people, developers are still not listening in regards to improving accessories progression and the TOXIC, CANCEROUS, RNG dynamic that accessories are locked behind.
