Last night, I put a few more hours into leveling my archer, Amon, in BDO, and pushed him on through to level 50. It was another case of not realizing just how fast he was leveling, and I was taken by surprise when the “Level 50 Quest” popped up.
I made it to 50 much faster this time around – partially because I’d already done it all once before, so I didn’t need to pause to read the story. It was also partially because I was using more of the side leveling boost scrolls for this character. So it took very little once I entered Calpheon to hit my goal for Amon.
I started to slow down at that point and work on quests around the city, as well as talking to NPCs that I missed my first time through. There’s still a lot to explore in a city of that size, and now that I’m 50, I don’t feel the need to rush anymore.
I still have a number of days left on Olvia, so I will likely focus on my main going forward. I want to sit down and figure out what to do with my contribution points, for one. Eventually, making merchant wagons for myself is on my list.
I also want to spend some time sorting through the various inventory I have across all the cities, consolidating it, and figuring out what all these boxes and event things I’ve been accumulating do. I have waaay too much stuff and no clue what a lot of it is.
The extra horse training boost event has ended, but I’ve almost managed to fully train a team of tier 6 horses for my next round of breeding. I’ve had a number of lucky breeding from my remaining tier 3 horses, and I’ve started to update my Sojourn Stables page with the results and new horses I’ve bred. I’ll write more about that once I see what comes of the tier 6 horses.
For now, I’m happy with my progress of having leveled two characters to 50, which is much further than I’ve ever been. I’m going to hand a lot of that to the new streamlined main quests and the pretty massive experience boosts I have.
