Well for a casual gamer, there is an afk mode. You can do tasks like fishing while afk, but it will give you reduced exp. This allows you to rack up the proffesion levels you'll need later on.

The game does not kick afk players as it's a way to earn Energy. Afk -> earn Energy -> create Energy pots -> repeat.

Also, the game has a minimized mode where it uses for little PC resources. I don't know if that's only in the other regions though.

Sounds good to me! I need to plug my laptop into a Kill-a-watt meter to see how much electricity it eats and what it will cost me $$ haha...
I guess my only other concern would be the wear and tear on my laptop if I run it 24/7... It's a new Sager and I would hate to see it burn out in its prime.. Guess I need to post on the Sager forum to see what people think..

It will not burn out in its prime, don't worry.
On the note of power savings - well, you could impose a framerate limit and reduce details anyway, so that the CPU and GPU would be less stressed. wink.gif

I think you quoted me by mistake, m8. It's other guy who's giving his codes out. Sorry.

Did you edit the post or something? Looks like you quoted me and I was the one that offered up the code. thumb.gif
Any ways.. I am thinking about getting on the Japanese or Korean Servers and using the English patch to get a better feel for the game prior to launch and over the beta.
However, I have no idea how to use VPNs.. guess I need to invest time and google it haha.

If anyone is doing it here please let me know!

Some CBT2 codes for you guys. Heads up, the codes do not have "O"s, they include "0"s.

 

 

1. Create a Black Desert Online account if you do not have one.

2.  Redeem your code starting on the 12th.

How did you get them early?

A couple of sites gave out some today. I grabbed two, but the sites ran out pretty quickly so I didn't link them here.

 

It's weird seeing sites get hammered over beta codes.
