I was surprised at how deep the game systems were during CBT1, and I knew I was barely scratching the surface. Here's something to help introduce folks to the game (including a lot of stuff I hadn't discovered yet):

EDIT POST: I am renaming the post now that Fog as stickied it up top. It is more accurately a list of guides. If you have guides, please link them here, but keep other comments to a minimum to keep this thread streamlined, please.

Some are really good. I suggest everyone watch PvtWiggles's video on 5 things to do while AFK. Some handy features there that I did not know about.

Thanks, Izzy. The one thing that hasn't been well communicated outside the game is what the lore is like.

I found this Guide, reading around the forums and different websites having information on Black Desert.

Complete Guide to Black Desert Online

You will see it is a collection from many difference sources and people contributing to it. A quite amazing amount of information for sure:).

That guide by Legacy / Praetorian is epic and par for the course for those guys. I gamed with / against them on Archeage and they absolutely dominated. Really well researched and organized game play from the beginning... Unfortunately the attitude of their leadership does not match the quality of their work or gameplay. I hope that Gaiscioch doesn't end up on the same server with them. - M.

Additional non-video guides to increase your inventory bag slots (same info in each, different formats):

(NOTE: These links have some problems the one above does not. The translation of many of the names in these two is incorrect. The earlier one above also has clicky links to the quest data in BDDatabase.net)

Nighthawk, that's a fantastic video. The author crammed so much useful information into five minutes, and has a nice calming voice to boot. I hope he keeps making videos and gets a large subscriber base. Thanks for sharing.

Also for everyone looking for cooking recipes, this is the best site I've found : Cooking recipes

Pay attention to the color that the recipe is because that tells you what level of cooking you need for it!

The world - Nodes and the map



http://www.blackdeserttome.com/map/ - node map that keeps getting updated

http://dulfy.net/2016/03/01/black-desert-node-management-and-hiring-workers-basic-guide/#Getting_More_Workers - Node and workers explained

 


Tips

 

- in order to get maximum value out of your items(be they trade/fishing or loot) you must have the node connected, You can see the affiliated node from the minimap 

-Prioritize updating the node your workers gather from and that you plan to keep. I started connecting nodes velia and only have been investing energy to the farms

- Check the worker stats compared to others you have on recruit and don¨t use Naive workers longer than you have to. There is some RNG in stats so some workers can be vastly better compared to the ones of same rarity even at level 0. I prefer goblins because of their work speed and I also have some humans with good stamina to 

- Once you have some starting capital always have atleast 100K silver in your inventory. You might get lucky and get offered a professional worker straight of the bat(no need for promotions) 

- You can see the node you are currently affiliated with on the top right corner of the minimap

 



Skills and stats - your character

 



Tips



- Soft cap for contribution is 300

- Energy is only limited by the knowledge you can gather, no known cap yet. Each one of your character s has the same cap and the accumulate one energy back per hour when they are not used or you are offline.   

- Training skills for your character have a cap of 30. I would always recommend that you have a cheap food on you that you can eat every 30 mins as each thing you eat raises Health stat. Strength is obtained by running around with a trade back. I usually take my afk -fishing from Velia to Heidel. This increases the stats and makes me more money on the side.

 



Professions 

Beginner (1-10)

Apprentice (1-10)

Skilled (1-10)

Professional (1-10)

Artisan (1-10)

Master (1-30)

Guru (1-?)

 


 - You black spirit is able to point you to quest chains that raise you near apprentice level in gathering and processing skills

- Dulfy makes some great guides that have been linked above




Cooking

Taming

 

http://dulfy.net/2016/03/03/black-desert-online-horse-taming-and-breeding-guide/ 

 

 Misc tips:

in quest log hover your mouse over the icons. You can filter quests and make it to display all of them( I have this one all the time. You will then see icons on top of all the npc heads that have quests - This is the way you will see dailies
