Sage has been released with the March 17, 2021 (Wed) maintenance! But, since Sage can’t be created as a season character, we know Adventurers starting for the first time or coming back from a long break might wonder if they’ll miss out on the faster leveling and other benefits a season offers.
Let us introduce you to the new, upcoming Olvia server where you’ll be able to level up your Sage!
New Olvia Server?
The new Olvia server with its various perks will be arriving on March 24!
|New Oliva Server Availability Period||March 24, 2021 (Wed) after maintenance - TBA|
The new Olvia server is a Growth Server for Adventurers who fulfill the new/returning requirements just like the previous Olvia server.
|New Olvia Server Requirements||
New: Adventurers who are logging in within 30 days (720 hours) after creating a secondary password
Returning: Adventurers who have not logged in for at least 30 days (720 hours) and have not used the Web Central Market for at least 30 days (720 hours)
* The new Olvia server is for Adventurers who fulfill the new Adventurer requirement above or the returning Adventurer requirement and have less than a total of 150 levels with all characters in their Family after the March 24 maintenance.
So, what kind of benefits should you expect from the new Olvia server?
New Olvia Server – A Variety of Benefits!
Arriving on March 24th, the new Olvia server will have four awesome benefits!
① Play with a 24-Hour Permanent Hot Time event!
|24-Hour Permanent Hot Time||
The Olvia server will have a permanently active Combat/Skill EXP Hot Time event.
The previous Olvia server had Combat EXP +100% and Skill EXP +30%, but the new Olvia server will have a Combat EXP +150% and Skill EXP +50% Hot Time!
② Enjoy an extended adventure in the new Olvia server!
On the previous Olvia server, your character could only reach up to Lv. 60 (99% EXP)… But on the new Olvia server, your character can reach up to Lv. 61 (99% EXP)!
③ Dreaming about being a pro Life Skiller? Then the new Olvia server is for you! Enjoy boosted Life Skill leveling until Artisan Lv. 1!
|Life Skill Hot Time||
Receive Life Skill EXP +100% Hot Time until Artisan Lv. 1 in the new Olvia server!
You’ll experience faster Life Skill leveling until you are Artisan Lv. 1 in Gathering, Fishing, Trading, Cooking, and more!
④ Your chance to get more Contribution EXP from various quests!
|Family Contribution EXP Benefits||
In the new Olvia server, getting “Contribution” is easier, meaning you’ll get increased Contribution EXP depending on your total Contribution!
* +150% Contribution EXP until 100 Contribution
* +100% Contribution EXP until 200 Contribution
* +50% Contribution EXP until 250 Contribution
Special Benefits Arriving with the New Class, Sage
Sage, the Last Ancient, has appeared... so we can’t be missing special perks, right!?
|New Special Gear: “Narchillan”||
Adventurers on their first journey should be quite familiar with Naru gear.
Soon, we’ll be adding exchange quests where you can change your PEN(V) Naru gear and Canon Awakening weapons for Narchillan gear!
Tip! Wait, Naru and Canon gear?
Naru Gear: Easily obtainable gear from the main questline for Adventurers starting out!
Canon Gear: Gear obtained for completing each classes’ Awakening questline!
* To ensure Adventurers won't experience any difficulties exchanging the gear, we have restricted the ability to delete PEN (V) Naru gear and Canon awakening weapons until the March 24 (Wed) update.
* It’s true that Sage won’t be able to obtain the Awakening weapon until he receives his Awakening update, so please hang on for a bit longer!
P.S. Narchillan gear will have high-end stats and effects similar to DUO (II) - TRI (III) enhanced Blackstar gear.
We hope you’ll look forward to the new “Narchillan” gear that arrives on March 24th!
Easier Capotia Accessory Challenges
New Level Up Challenges
As you may know, you can receive Capotia accessories from Challenge (Y) by reaching certain levels.
With the upcoming Sage release, there’ll be new Capotia Challenges with better rewards!
|Additional Life Skill Equipment!||
Good news for Adventurers who enjoy Life Skills!
Characters who are Gathering Apprentice Lv. 1 or higher will have new quests to obtain Demihar Gathering tool after the March 24 maintenance.
The Demihar Gathering tool has a special Life EXP +50% effect, so I can’t wait to try it out for myself!
(However, you can only get one per Family, and since it is also a time-limited item, you won’t be able to repair it.)
We hope you’ll enjoy adventuring with all the benefits that arrive after the maintenance on March 24!
Adventurer FAQ (Added)
Q. Is the quest for exchanging Naru gear for Narchillan gear only available in the new Olvia server?
A. Nope! The new exchange quest will be available for all servers including the new Olvia server.
Q. Are only Sage characters able to exchange Naru gear for Narchillan gear?
A. Nope! All classes, including the newly released Sage, will be able to exchange PEN(V) Naru gear or Canon Awakening weapons for Narchillan gear.
But as mentioned above, Sage’s Awakening hasn’t been released yet, so you won’t be able to obtain the Canon Awakening weapon for him. We hope you’ll stay tuned for it!
Q. Is the new Capotia Challenges only available in the new Olvia server?
A. Nope, you’ll be able to complete each Capotia Challenge once per Family regardless of the server.
Q. I’ve already reached the required levels for the new Capotia Challenges! How do I get the rewards?
A. Adventurers who already achieved the levels required before the upcoming changes during the March 24th maintenance will still be able to complete the Challenges.
For example, if you are an Adventurer who has already reached level 63 and received the Capotia Ring, Earring, and Belt, you’ll still receive all the changed level rewards that you haven’t received yet from Challenge (Y), which are the Capotia Necklance and TRI (III) Capotia Ring/Earring.
However, please be aware that you can only complete each Challenge once per Family.
If you look at the global labs it is sitting statwise between tri-tet boss gear and has similar bonuses as blackstar gear ( more monster damage/monster damage reduction). So Pen-Tuvala is still half a step better than that gear.
Just a thought: Could be they are gonna remove OASIS-Event soon cause it is pretty much one year since it started, so they want to give people to still have some helpout gear to ease them into getting their normal boss gear.
How is that beneficial to literally anyone in Life Skilling community?
the space. I know what you mean... should be an option... but I wonder if it's just Season + Olvia (new)... or only New Olvia too.
Can't really understand that. ALSO the new classes should be locked for new Players anyways undtil they didnt play one of the older classes to lvl 60/61 and learned about the game.
This requirement is a joke. That means nobody with more than 2 lvl 60 characters will be able to play on the Olvia servers again...
Being able to grind without constant "duel 4 spot" was really nice to when returning to BDO. Grinding on normal channels is getting more and more annoying because of constant duels everywhere...
I like to take breaks after playing for 1-3 months and Olvia was always a welcome change to the normal channels.
I am sure that i am not the only one with this opinion.
the case then i want a no-PvP server so i dont get grief-ganked every 5 minutes. That this new armor makes Naru less of a trash piece, and the way capotia is granted earlier, that is for the better, but dont heap all your glory just on returning/new players
and leave older ones that stuck with you standing in the rain please.
capotia that I got from events.
Another thing - games always need some new players. Without that things no one will start playing the game (or at least 99% of ppl will not play the game) if they won't be able to do some newer content in next 6 years.
This is a terrible barrier and should not be implemented.
you can access new olivia even if you old player). The thing is this apply only after creating a secondary password. Hope this clarify for new readers!
Have a nice day!
be a significant percentage of players whilst pretending it's a good thing because of improved rates; Worse still when a new player asks a question in server chat there's going to be far fewer people capable of answering now.
Now I'm faced with the question: do I delete characters to keep access to Olvia servers? Which is a terrible question that nobody should have to ask themselves in any game. It directly contrasts with the way the game is designed to be played due to season characters,
boss alts, lifeskill alts and more.
But just to be clear this is not how it's written in the post, for context here's the original post:
* The new Olvia server is for Adventurers who fulfill the new Adventurer requirement above OR the returning Adventurer requirement AND have less than a total of 150 levels with all characters in their Family after the March 24 maintenance.
This is saying returning players also have to reach the <150 levels milestone to gain access to the servers.
Like I said though if this is a translation error, great that's good news, everyone still has equal access to the Olvia servers. However if this is a translation error this is something that should have been responded to and corrected before I even posted my
initial response and I would like some more clarification on it even at this late point from a GM.
what he told me). I will test it too after 31 when season ends. I will take a brake of 30 days and I'll be back with a comment (i have 8 chars 56+ 2chars 60+ and one 61). Best regards!
make me a lot less interested in returning to BDO after a break. Those same folks that answer the newer players educate me on all that's changed in the year(s) since I stopped playing.
I hope this is just an error, a misunderstanding, or is reconsidered.
Would be nice if they come in a box, but I doubt that.
I have prepared a Ranger with full PEN Naru gear right now. Since Naru Gear is Charbound i wonder if i exchange the "PEN Naru Bow" will i get a "Narchillia Bow" or a "Narchillia Mainhand Weapon Box".
Since then i need to __create a new char with same class then my main.
I agree that if you do that at least give us a no-pvp server to play in peace, plus I as well think there'll be nobody to answer newbies questions this way.
The rest of the changes are very welcome, but locking out all returners (unless they're newbie returners) out of Olvia is really a bad move.
Or allow to anyone play in olivia at all time ( and i suppose it would need to have far more olivia channels ), and only apply the buff if thoses players meet the current "olivia entrance requierment"
to only returns and new players its a joke. Please do consider to add non PVP servers because stuff gotten really difficult for lifeskillers and grinders since with the Hadum servers. Hope stuff will get better soon.
People are the worst, and I want to a__void them :')
to not come back.
Grinding many hours to get that rare ring, belt, ... drop? No. Go off and wait for event gift.
Grinding many hours to increase your gear? No. Go off and wait for gift.
Leave your PC on to train/breed horse? No. Go off and wait for (season) gift.
Even lvl 61 is now available in almost an __b__link of an eye... so catch up to a broad mass while leaving all those at the same medicore-spot that invested a lot of time. But wait ... getting too much time into this would bring you a new penalty if you get too
There is not that many you can do in BDO to stand out and in that rare niches those events and gifts are like marauders that make pretty much every effort pointless. Ever killed hundrets of Ogres to finally get a baris necklace... and wondered why there are
hundrets of ogre rings in the market until you saw that new event? Lol...
was only for seasons chars. Maybe It’s for the Best, we will see this year.(hopefully)
