Greetings Adventurers,


The BDO Monthly August issue has just arrived! Grab a copy while it lasts!


August has been an incredible month full of creativity. Adventurers have shared amazing artworks and screenshots, guides, and some Fanmade comics. Let's start the reading!


Magazine Cover




Adventurer Shiromaki is debuting in our Magazine with this with an original drawing. Feels like this could be the cover of BDO Manga, don't you guys also think so?


▶ BDOfanart - Shiromaki

Adventurer Vonmeier created this piece of art for a friend of theirs. The purple chosen as the main color is a perfect match for this class, do you agree?

▶ Sorceress in mighty Hercules' might armor - Vonmeier

Adventurer Rhiin is back this month with this Fan Art of a Dark Knight and her Black Spirit. What has her companion requested her to do?

▶ A Deadly Deal - Rhiin

Justice is the main cornerstone for a Valkyrie and she would do anything to achieve it and adventurer WickedWazer created an amazing piece of art that perfectly shows us this.

▶ Crusade! - WickedWazer




Adventurer ShadowSATELLIZER shared a screenshot of their Drakania and Mystic. Can you recognize the outfit they are wearing? Their Drakania is wearing the Oblivion Outfit, while their Mystic is equipped with the Lupine Outfit!


▶ Just some wallpaper of my characters - ShadowSATELLIZER

Unikornu is back and this time they takes us on a trip in Thornwood Forest. Adventurers come here seeking La Orzeca, did you get yours already?

Adventurer Mirmulnir went for an underwater adventure and explored Sycraia Underwater Ruins! Did you ever summon the Ruins boss during your time there?

▶Sycrid 🐟 - Mirmulnir






Shayas shared with us their original fanmade BDO comix. Chapter 0 was all about Drakania, and now we are curious to see the first chapter about the Beginning of the Adventure!

Adventurer Pheteven created an outstanding guide about Succession Guardian. All you need to know about this class can be found in this detailed guide. Will you try it out?
