Black Desert Online’s Let it Snow event gets you free treasure for just staying logged in

Technically this is sort of a BDO thing, but they don't treat race like it'a separate thing, so whatever.

Don’t you hate when events expect you to actually do things to earn rewards? Black Desert Online’s newest event has you covered. Here’s how to reap big rewards from the game’s Let it Snow event: Log in to the game, then just stay logged in. You get a Snowflake for every 30 minutes you’re logged in, with a maximum of 10 per day (that’s five hours of being logged in, for the math-impaired). Then you trade those snowflakes to NPCs for boxes of stuff.

Boxes are available for 10, 30, 50, and 150 snowflakes, with higher denominations containing a different sort of reward (not necessarily better ones, depending on what you need); basic math will also tell you that you have about 200 snowflakes to earn over the course of the event. So log in and stay logged in for a while, and you can plan out what sort of upgrades will be helpful to you. That should be fun enough.

Ugh. Aion used to do these kinds of afk “events”. Players would rig characters to stand in common public spaces jumping, running into walls, or noisily turning power shards off and on for ages, so they weren’t automatically kicked off the game for player inaction. It made cities a laggy PitA.

That’s a fairly nice holiday gift from them – and I have to say their cosmetics are usually quite nicely done (if that screenie is of the gear, it’s beautiful) but…I’m not going to reinstall BDO for it.

As much as I’m tempted, 33 gigs is just too long a d/l and keeping it running in background too much of a load for my antiquated gaming laptop for anything to run decently for those 20 days…

…and then, thinking about it, it COULD just run over night…..

Goddamn it, I hate my inability to resist free giveaways. I mean…I may go back to playing BDO someday, right?

The give aways never end.

Coming up this week is going to be big. Free boss gear box again. Lots of free goodies each day too.

The last year I’ve played less than I have more, but I’ve kept on top of the weekly patch stuff so I could take advantage of freebies. It’s really nice to have all the freebies for when I do end up playing. Like now, I have the free horse cosmetic set from summer, a bunch of 10 mil gold bars I don’t remember where they came from, around 3 months work of free value packs from logging in the first time after 30 days offline, and a bunch of other stuff. The free value packs are really cool for when I do end up playing regularly, like now! So it’s worth keeping on your system and checking the news for every so often.

They’ve just sweetened the New Year’s deal with more free stuff! One of those is getting a free boss gear. The giveaway last anniversary is how I got my character’s Dandelion, so I love the boss gear box giveaways!

Here’s all the freebie stuff for New Year’s, on top of what is posted in this column.

The game has been optimized pretty well and it runs better now. Give it another try sometime when time or space permits.

They even redid the main storyline so it actually makes sense and you can choose 1 of 3 quest paths to follow

That’s pretty much how every BDO event is though. You log in and get periodic rewards over time as well as daily login rewards.

Okay, that’s pretty much every day in BDO since there is almost always one event or another running.

Crazy.

Meanwhile MENA servers published new market update which resulted in major exploit (list an item, instantly get money for the item, then pull the item from sale, rinse and repeat) which was rolled back. Though some people managed to spend the exploited silver on stupid RNG equipment upgrade system (they used extremely expensive cron stones to neutralize it and get PEN items) and now they have hundreds of billions debts on their bank balances.

Probably the most poetic justice thing to happen in a long time.
