GM Notes Jan 31, 2023, 17:45 (UTC) BDO Monthly - January 2023


Greetings Adventurers,


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


January has been a fantastic month full of creativity. Adventurers have shared so many incredible artwork and screenshots, guides, and videos, that we had a really tough time choosing who to feature and we even had to create a brand new category! So let's start reading!


Magazine Cover




Adventurer Rhiin brought us a wonderful drawing of the twin sisters - Woosa and Maegu. Even though their rivalry makes them opposites like Ying and Yang, they are stronger together. Who would you consider to be your Ying or Yang?


▶ [Monthly Fan Art] Woosa and Maegu - Rhiin

Adventurer Koniboni joins us for the first time here in BDO Monthly with a fanart commission for their guild friend with a Maewha wearing the beautiful Te'enah outfit! Which outfit do you like to wear with your Maewha?  



Adventurer Mercuel did not only bring one fanart this month but two! One with a Tamer and their cute Heilang, while another one with a small and chibi Warrior. At first, we even thought it was a feisty Black Spirit with an Orzeca Helmet! Who would you like to see next as a chibi?


Amarillos for some is a boss in Yolunakea, for others can be the resemblance of a reindeer! Adventurer Acantaraa saw Amarillos and took the chance to bring the Winter Spirit to it and give it its own Winter decorations.

▶ Marry Christmas to all! 🎀🎄🎁 - Acantaraa

The tranquility and peace a butterfly feels on a moonlight night. Adventurer CalhounFirenight brought us Woosa on a beautiful moonlight, capturing really well the Woosa style!

▶ The twin of moonlight - CalhounFirenight




Adventurer GoblinMeat appears for the first time in our BDO Monthly with their Winter tree! Among all the trees we can see in the screenshot, we think the middle one is indeed the most beautiful one!


▶ Christmas Manor - GoblinMeat


Adventurer Unikornu brought us again one of their beautiful screenshots to BDO Monthly and this time where their characters meet and say Goodbye to 2022! If you could form a party with your characters which ones would you choose?


▶ Tagged and Together - Wrapping up the Year - Unikornu


Have you already tried Atoraxxion: Yolunakea? Did you know you can get more knowledges if you interact with certain places, objects, or NPCs? Don't worry! Adventurer Khayman created a video with all the locations for you to gather all the knowledges from Yolunakea!
▶ All Knowledges in Yolunakea Dungeon - Khayman


Take a step back and appreciate the World of the Black Desert, its Landscapes, and its Regions with this video that Adventurer PiotrAndrevich created! What is your favorite place in the Black Desert?

▶ In All Places - How Wonderful Black Desert It Is? - PiotrAndrevich

The Winter Season is a jolly season filled with music and lots of Winter decorations around Black Desert. Adventurer YuiFurukawa wanted to share the Winter Spirit with a warm and cozy video that you can see here in our BDO Monthly!

▶ Christmas Joy, Merry Christmas :) - YuiFurukawa
