Black Desert is a huge sandbox oriented MMORPG that provides a variety of unique experiences, including strategy-oriented action such as castle sieges and complex battle, and also sophisticated simulation content such as trading, NPC-hiring, and real-estate management.
Das Kampfsystem ist ein aktives und angeblich sehr spaßiges Action-Kampfsystem. Außerdem gibts OpenPvP. Ist also nicht für jeden...
ein paar Highlights:
Black Desert has one of the greatest character creation systems.
Black Desert offers a huge, dynamic world to its players who wish to explore its beautiful selection of scenery and dungeons. It has an array of places, such as small villages and huge bustling cities, scorching deserts and icy tundras. The world of Black Desert is vast, seamless and contains diverse landscapes with its differing climates and its immersive day and night cycle.
Each zone has unique dynamic weather. A storm can move from one area to the other. Weather affects gameplay and character characteristics like his movement speed, accuracy and so on. The weather also affects the appearance. For example wet clothes look different.
Travelling is an important part for the immersion. You cannot simply teleport from one location to another, or fly over the map to your destination. Instead you must walk, run, sail or ride. Each city you visit has its own bank, stable, dock; these places are not magically linked to each other. Also your mount doesn't magical disappear into your inventory. Instead it stays in the world at the spot where you left it.
Mounts are not for traveling only. Merchants and crafters also need them. Every mount differs not only by appearance. Some are better for fast traveling, while others are better for cargo transportation. Black Desert also has Rafts, Boats and Wagons which are used for transporting big amounts of goods. There are also Pets available, like cats, dogs and hawks. Pets in Black Desert will loot mobs you have killed every so often depending on level and rank, and high ranking pets can also apply minor buffs to things such as energy regeneration and combat experience.
Behavior of many NPCs depend on the time of day. For example NPCs do their work during daytime and rest in the night. But thieves can be found only in the night. Your character has different relations with different NPCs. The relations can become better if you help NPCs and interact with them. If the relations with a certain NPC are very good, he can give you extra quests, give you items, allow you to access extra items in the shop and so on. It’s possible to hire NPCs. They will help you in your workshops or farms, can be send to collect ressources or will protect your caravan.
Housing in Black Desert gives you the option to spend contribution on a home to either live in, or use as a manufacturing workshop for your workers. There are a massive amount of different workshops for your workers to use throughout the towns and cities in Black Desert. It’s possible to purchase different types of furniture to customize a house. Furniture gives different buffs and access to different crafting stations. You can upgrade houses to access advanced crafting opportunities.
Crafting in Black Desert Online greatly differs from other games. There’s no form of limitation applying to the Player nor any kind of dependency such as class or skill. This stems from the fact that it is not the Player who is actually doing the crafting, rather the role of the Player revolves around collecting the different materials and submitting them to an NPC that will proceed to creating the much desired items. To add to this rather unusual system, the Player can make use of hired workforce (NPC) to aid them in the gathering process. The process of gathering the materials can be rather elaborate due to it demanding the manual gathering of rocks, plants, trees and others; Hiring workers allows the Player to hasten the process of gathering and enables them to process these materials by the combined forces of extra hired workers and housing infrastructure. Workers have stats and tiers; Workers of higher level and higher tier work faster and will subsequently have a higher chance of crafting an epic item (a piece of armor similar to the original one but with extra stats), but do cost more. To summarize; crafting requires a great degree of preparation in the form of setting up your workshop, hire & train workers, gather materials and be patient.
In its current form Black Desert Online does not feature a Player to Player trading system, rather it includes. a “Trading System” that serves as the primary source of income for Players. This trading system functions similar to trading in real life; you buy items and try to sell them at a higher price and there’s likewise the possibility of losing money rather than making. There’s a special NPC located in every large city, as well as, big Trade Note named “Trade Administrator”; It is via this specific NPC that a Player can buy materials and goods produced in this area. Now that you’ve filled your bags with valuable goods you will need to travel around the world, or the next city and see if your goods can satisfy local needs. Being based on the free market rule of supply & demand, the selling price of a specific product is based on how much it is desired or needed by the local residents; in case your goods aren’t important to the locals it might happen that you will sell your items at a loss rather than profit. For example, if you have bought milk, and try to sell it to another farm which already has cows, you will not be able to sell it in higher price since the NPC’s will not be interested for something they can already produce themselves.
Gardens can be created by dropping a fence, available for rent at any town’s Material Merchant for contribution. You can use your garden by placing it just outside of a village. Factors such as humidity and heat can effect the growth and health of your crops. If the temperature is too low, your crops won’t grow fast enough. Too much humidity and pests may wind up in your crops.
By mixing ingredients together with Alchemy you can create a wide variety of potions, crystals and alchemy stones which are not avaliable at NPC shops or droped by monsters. To practice alchemy, you must first install alchemy tools into your home. You can obtain alchemy tools from a haberdasher or by creating one through a Tool Workshop production workshop.
You need Gathering to acquire the basic materials to start any craft, and you need gathering tools specific to each form of gathering. While the world of Black Desert looks rather lush and full, most of these natural objects are in fact gatherable, as well as mobs themselves. With higher gathering levels, you gain access to higher quality gathering tools, as well as higher gathering yields per energy spent. The different types of gathering tools are as follows: Mining Pick, Butchering Knife, Skinning Knife, Sapping Tool, Hoe, Logging Axe, Empty Bottle and Shovel.
In Black Desert, you can use Proccessing to take raw materials and further refine them. Some materials can be refined in different ways for different results. These refined materials can be further used to craft items through workshop production. The types of proccessing avaliable in game right now are: Shaking, grinding, woodchopping, drying, thinning and heating.
Cooking produces various consumables that provide buffs over an extended period of time. As you progress your cooking levels you will become more efficient and gain the ability to create better dishes. You will need to discover the recipes yourself or learn them from another players or npcs.
Playing a musical instrument: Black Desert offers a musical minigame upon equipping the flute item, obtained via quest. There are also several other musical instruments that players can use later on, such as drums.
Hunting is one of the mini-games found in Black Desert. You can hunt Pigeons and other birds, Alligators, Small Whales.
Fishing in Black Desert is used to obtain fish for use in cooking, as well as silver. To fish, you must first obtain a Fishing Pole. You can get one from a fishing merchant, a quest reward, or through creating one with a Tool workshop housing unit. You then can go to any body of water to begin fishing, provided it is not too shallow. Fish can be depleted from a region due to popularity, so it’s best to fish different areas form time to time. You can open the world map to check fishing conditions around the world.
Equipment & Durability: All of the armor in Black Desert can be used by all classes, although weapons and secondary weapons are class specific. Your equipment is a crucial factor in your progression through the game, effect your combat viability, endurance, and killing speed. Weapons, Helmets, Chest Pieces, Gloves, Boots as well as accessories have durability. Durability decreases as items are used, weapons as they deal attacks, armor as they absorb damage. As this durability decreases the outward appearance of the items will degrade to reflect the diminished durability. To prevent your equipment from breaking you can visit a blacksmith NPC found in most towns, or you can even repair it in your house with a personal anvil.
