If you were thinking that now is a great time for BDO to have an in-game event Kakao agrees and has announced that the Season of the Hunt event is coming next week.
The event will begin next week on September 25th after the regularly scheduled maintenance. It will be broken up into several stages over the following three weeks with something different happening each week. It all begins with a Trina Knights First Captains Support kit giveaway for players level 56 and 58. The kit will give players high tier weapons and accessories.
On the 25th all BDO players will get the Fever Time Boost giving players up to +200% Combat EXP and +30% Skill EXP boosts. This boost will be available until October 8th.
Special challenges will be available to players throughout the first two weeks of the event. These will reward players for playing BDO for a certain duration. Adventurers can obtain special items such as [Event] High-Quality Draught Box, [Event] Extra Combat EXP Scroll, [Event] High-Quality Food Box, and [Event] Item Collection Increase Scrolls.
Also, during the first two weeks of the event a World Boss drop rate boost will be active. This will double the drop rate for boss items from Garmoth, Vell, Kzarka, Nouver, Kutum, Offen Tett, and Karnada.
All of this is leading up to October 8th when the Kratuga Ancient Ruins will open. This is a new high level grinding spot for players. Here adventurers can combat mysterious ancient weapon constructs that drop Elkar, a material that is needed to produce Elkar’s Crystal. This new type of crystal has All Accuracy +12 and Ignore All Resistance +10% effects and can be equipped on main weapons. Players will need a Black Spirit’s Claw to enter the Kratuga Ancient Ruins via Hystria Ancient Ruins and it is recommended that they have an AP of at least 250.
