A little while ago I talked about a few things that I would like changed within black desert. Just pieces that needed improvement or were missing that I thought would improve the experience and it’s rather funny but quite a few of those items have received news or improvements recently.
We have received a few new outfits for the classes but unfortunately I’m not impressed at all. I remember specifying that I would rather they avoid the stupidity of Aion outfits but nope, it’s seems the cash shop outfits are going to be the usual eastern fare. That is to say a cross between an underwear model and a dancer at Mardi gras – well that is kind of the same thing, just with more feathers.
I said on Twitter but they really need to get some real armour designs out and just some costume devs that know what they are doing, I vote for CD Projekt. Just something more grounded within the design of the world. That’s not to say you can’t dress like a drag queens back up dancer, just that I’d prefer if that wasn’t the only option.
There was some big news about the updates coming to KR soon too, that included what seems like a lot of new ocean content. I think it would be at least several months before we might see these things but it is good to know they are improving this area of the game as well.
I also have one more important thing to add that I would love changed, in fact, I think it would be my number one fix for the game as it is now. Stop making me have to leave my computer on and the client running – it’s annoying.
There are a few mechanics that take advantage of staying afk in game like your workers, who apparently stop working if your not cracking the whip which is silly considering they should just keep completing their tasks regardless until there stamina is finished. Promoting the workers as well can take a dozen hours real time to finish, which seems rather out of touch considering an average amount of play time.
And then there is afk fishing as well. Personally I think you should just be able to set your character to fish and then log out. Leaving them to complete their fishing until the rod breaks or their bags are full. I’m guessing it would be easy enough for the server to continue their task for you, even keeping your character in place while you were away. There are other games with this functionality already so it’s a scene is kind of weird here considering how important and useful these ask tasks can be.
I even think the upcoming loops you will be able to set could be done without you logged on as well. A lot of these tasks don’t require further input for hours on end so it really doesn’t need you to be logged on at all.
I can leave my computer on but personally, I really don’t like doing that. Leaving my computer for days on end makes me rather nervous about possible burning out the components, or at least speeding up their eventual demisr. It has gotten cooler now but still – I worry. If you aren’t doing this though it kind of feels like I’m being left behind from both my guild, and the server in general. They get to earn at a particular level consistently and I’m just left with the scraps.
Even energy on your character recovers faster when online which reminds me of Archeage, and just how stupid it was there too. They are expecting you to stay logged into their game, or at least heavily incentivising it and I really don’t like that.
