Black Desert Online - With a Name like Blood Monastery
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2016, 10:19 am
I should have known with a name like Blood Monastery there’d be heaps of trouble thereabouts. When the image of WOW’s Scarlet Monastery popped into my head, that should have been the first clue. But it wasn’t. I was doing inventory management while the game auto navigated me to the NPC I needed to meet at the location. A friendly quest NPC that doubled as the Node Manager. I did not suspect she was on a hill deep inside enemy territory.


Black Desert Online - Casual is Easy
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 March 2016, 2:39 pm
Playing Black Desert Online casually is still working for me. I have too many balls in the air for much more. In the past, I've tried returning to World of Warcraft casually when I'm in between games but it never lasts more than a couple of months - tops. I'm hoping this will be different. Until Star Citizen has considerably more game mechanics available, there isn't enough to do on a regular basis without risking burn out. Right now, I'm having a lot of fun playing the content creation game. I'm learning about planned mechanics, the various ships and more importantly, lots of lore from doing my Casual Citizen series.

Black Desert Online - Multi-Level Terrain is Great for Explorers
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 March 2016, 4:25 pm
I haven't had much gaming time this past week so very little was spent in Black Desert Online. When I did have time to play, I appreciated how easy it was to find something to do! Using the navigation option on the quest tracker I could see which quests were nearest to my current location. I accepted a Spirit Quest and since it was near two other quests doing those became the plan of attack.


Black Desert Online - Player Housing
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 March 2016, 1:16 pm
I really enjoy player housing in MMOs. I especially enjoy it when you can craft from your home. Long time readers may recall occasions when I’ve turned a character’s house into a crafting workshop for guild members in Runes of Magic and a business/store in EverQuest 2. In EQ2 I went a step further, creating a few guides on how to construct custom objects. I had a ball doing things like that in a virtual world. I enjoy sharing knowledge that might enhance someone else’s gaming experience. Heck, I’m doing the same thing with Star Citizen, except that I’ve evolved to doing videos with voice over narration.


Black Desert Online - Nodes and Witch Spells
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 March 2016, 10:39 pm
I was able to spend some time last Sunday playing Black Desert Online. Instead of leveling, I wanted to investigate spells for the Witch, connecting Nodes and player housing. I’m happy to report that I accomplished all three. I’ve already posted about first encounter with BDO player housing here. On to the other two.

Black Desert Online - That's a Finisher!
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 March 2016, 10:38 am
Another fun and relaxing session in Black Desert Online. I spent some time placing the last of the furniture I own into my house in Hiedel. I wanted to end the evening asleep in the bed to see if there’s a rest bonus of some sort.

Black Desert Online - Short Witch Video
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 March 2016, 9:37 am
A few minutes of video from Black Desert Online. I was completing a quest and doing some free roaming combat the other night. There are gorgeous locations off the questing trail. I enjoy exploring the locations around the quest hubs. When a game adds life into those in between pockets, it makes the game feel more like a virtual world. Every time I've peaked behind the curtain so far, there's been something interesting to see or fight. Smile


Black Desert Online: Oh No He Didn't!!!
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 March 2016, 12:40 pm
All I've done so far in Black Desert Online is quest and explore. I'm playing very short sessions during the week due to other obligations. So far it's proven to be a nice way to unwind after dinner before I get back to working on other projects.


An Evening Chillin' in Black Desert Online
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 March 2016, 8:33 pm
This evening I spent an hour questing and exploring in BDO. It was way more relaxing than I imagined it would be. It took me right back to casual time spent farming and transporting trade packs in ArcheAge even thought that's not at all what I was doing. I suppose it's the similar art style, lovely scenery and how active the routes through the questing areas are with players and NPCs milling around. I know that enjoying the super casual me thing I do, when I'm not overly fond of the questing system in a MMO doesn't last every long but it doesn't hurt to give it a try. I need to work out how to get started with housing for workers and fishing.

Black Desert Online - I Don't Think We'll be Besties
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2016, 6:01 pm
I don't like Black Desert Online as much as I'd hoped. The things I'm not fond of weren't apparent when I was watching high level characters play, which is mostly what I've watched on Twitch. I wasn't able to play on Friday due to a bug that prevented some pre-order customers from logging in. The fact that I only played a few hours on Saturday was very telling as to how much it's not an ideal fit for me. Let's start with what I did like.
