I don't get people how it's such a foreign concept to the people in the above thread, that quite a few MMOs allow you to slowly level up crafting skills while AFK.

It's not as OP as people make it out to be, and especially in Black Desert. You "can" fish while AFK, but only until you fill your bags, and you'll mostly get over 75% trash fish. Somedays, you can be lucky and get a bunch of those stone pieces you need to summon bosses, but it's a rare occurence.

You can't be crafting all day long, either. You just setup a batch of stuff to craft, until you used up all your stamina, and then it stops automatically... It's exactly the same as if you were sitting in front of your character. In fact, everytime I start a crafting batch in that game, i literally alt-tab out and check on it every 10 minutes.

Farms let you gather a bunch of crafting materials, but they are the only way to obtain those items, except maybe literally walking to those farms and plucking up a dozen of those "tomatoes" or whatever off the fields and waiting for them to respawn. (Not the intended way.)

The ONLY complaint I have about the game is the lack of end-game content, and the fact that leveling from level 1 to 50 takes around 2 days, while every level past 50 takes from 2 days to weeks of pure grinding.

It was an extremely fun experience, until you hit that wall of "Nothing to do except grind sahagins now, and then in 2 days it's time to move to spot B and kill mob B, then in a week it's spot C for mob C." God, what an awful endgame.

Game is great, get it.

People whining like children about AFK farming is hilarious...since EVERYONE can do it.

Its a great game to test your graphics card lol but outside of that? Its pretty shallow of a game with crappy leveling, story , and the end game is nothing to brag about . There is just no substance to it . I would pass on this one if I were you .
