Build and Upgrade Your Camp Right Away
Never take your camps for granted as you can craft powerful weapons with it. As soon as it is available, build your camp right away. You also need to hire workers as much as you can to collect resources for your camp and must have all workers on the task to avoid wasting time on gathering resources. With resources, you can then upgrade your camp to get more equipment.
The resources you should focus on until your camp is fully-upgraded are:
- Four types of wood
- Regular stones
To further help you with upgrading your camps, it is very important that you level up Lifeskills up to level 5 ASAP. Lifeskills include mining, forage, lumber, and fishing (optional). These Lifeskills will help you unlock greater areas for World Gathering.
Worker Stats to Prioritize
Stats are also important to increase efficiency in your workers, so here’s the best stat build for Workers in Black Desert Mobile camps.
- First, you go with DEX, then VIT and last would be STR.
Always claim stones from the camp refinery
Make sure that you keep claiming resources from your refinery to keep it from becoming full.
How to Level Up Faster
It is easy to level up faster if you are religious in following story quest lines, Black Spirit quests, and other activities. Make sure to invest in those Dark Energy to help you level up faster in the starting phase. Always prioritize finishing your main quests.
The main quests give out beneficial rewards such as:
- Contribution EXP
- Rare Stones
- Black Pearls
Take note that you can get these rewards from your Alts as well.
Use your Stones wisely
Don’t just use stones all the time just because you feel like you need to upgrade your equipment to a maximum right away. Always take note that there is a huge chance that enhancements fail the higher the level upgrade needed, resulting in your equipment resetting to a lower level or worse, gets broken.
Purchase All Crystals from Town NPCs
You can purchase crystals from Town NPCs every hour as this gives you a chance of crafting a gold crystal. Never worry about your in-game money as these crystals are affordable since you get lots of silver as you go on an adventure and level up.
Don’t Spam at World Chat
