The closed beta 3 (CBT3) of the Korean Black Desert online has ended and many people did not have the chance to try it. Here you will be able to see the path that someone have to take to go from level 1 to level 50 in the CBT3.
Towns and areas have translated with google translate so we apologies for any inconvenience.
All characters started their journey from the Velia village of Balenos. Except from ranger.
Velia is a peaceful village at the North side of the map of Black Desert online, full of interactive NPC’s and a lot of quests to start your adventures.
The first monsters that you will engage at the area of Velia village is at a farm right over the Village.
The monsters you will find is some kind of big bugs camouflaged with grass. And as you going further away from the village, you will engage some kind of ferrets, foxes and wolves.
Just before you reach level 10, quests will indicate you to move West from the village, at the Agryz Altar.
There you will meet a lot of trolls include one of the lowest in level open world raid boss.
At this point probably you will have reach level 8 – 10 and you will be familiarizing with the skills of your character.
Next you will move south from the Altar. At the West Guard Camp.
The guards at this area are in an endless war with the goblins and trolls.
Outside of the camp and a little bit on the South, you will find a dark forest and you will have to fight some tree-like creatures.
Deeper in the forest you will find a cave which in that cave, you will find the Ancient Stone Chamber. You will have to go there in order to evolve your dark spirit.
Later on after completing few quests, you will move East of Velia village to kill some more goblins.
At the same area there is a cave which at the bottom of it, you will find another raid boss, their leader.
At the maximum level of 16 or 17 you will have complete all the main spirit quests at the whole Balenos area. Then you will travel south at the Heidel town. A small town bigger than Velia village again full of interactive NPC’s.
Around the town you will find goblins, farms with pumpkin monsters, quarry’s and of course the great Altar.
When you hit level 18 – 19 will be wiser to move more to the south for higher level monsters. South from Heidel you will find a farm and you will have to kill scarecrows.
Just next of the farm you will find a poisonous swamp filled with strange plants, lizards and some flamingo-like monsters.
At the level of 20 – 21 it will be better to move more to the South, at a ruins of a Castle. There you will find evil soldiers wandering around and a mini boss. It is worth to stay at this area till you hit level 24.
West from the ruined castle you will find the Southern Swamps full of humanoid frogs. It is wiser to pull them outside of the water since it is easier to knock them down, and you run faster. Also this is the area with the huge frog raid boss.
While you grind in the frog swamp, you will have to restock your potions and repair your armor at the dark village next of the swamp (name couldn’t found).
Moving South from the village, you will have to engage with some assassins. There you will also find another raid boss, their mighty leader.
Moving West again from the village, you will reach an area with humanoid pigs. At this point you must be level 28 – 31. As long you move to the North in this area, the monsters increase in size and level.
When you are over level 33 – 34 you will move more to the North and cross the river. There you will find the Bandit Lair. Like the name of the area, there is the fortress of some cruel bandits which they enjoy to slaughter innocent people. Check your steps as you grinding there, a lot of hidden traps might knock you down.
As you getting closer to level 40, you will start moving West again in order to enter the area of Calpheon.
Before you step your foot into the majestic city of Calpheon, you will have to engage with other trolls, bigger in size and strength again.
Passing these ugly ogres you will reach a peaceful village full of flowers, the Northern Plantation. Although there are strange worm/alligator-type monsters on some catacombs underneath the village.
Northern of this beautiful village, you will find a dark forest the Brie Tree Site which is covered with an evil dark curse. That course made ancient stone to take life and hunt you down, it is also affecting the animals of the forest, it curse make them to want to kill you. Close to the forest there is also a cave full of humans which they are covered with this strange curse.
At the East side of the forest there is a small happy village.
West from the dark evil forest you will find other huge goblins, there is a constant war between them and the courageous guards of Calpheon city. This area is not for solo since they have a lot of HP and need a lot of time to kill them.
Moving South from that area and closer to the Calpehon city, you will pass from the plagued camps. It is full of wrenched hags, sorceress and zombies.
Moving more to the South from the camp, you will finally set foot in the magnificent city of Calpheon.
The Southern you go from Calpheon the more harder the monsters get. East from Calpheon are some kind of stone mines. There is a strange virus there which makes all the workers turn to stone monsters.
If you travel South from the mines, you will reach the Kaplan village. The whole village suffers from the virus and they desperate trying to keep out the infected humans from the village.
If you move West from Kaplan village, you will reach the Experimental Foundations of Marnier. There you will find strange hounds, robots with chicken heads and other strange creatures.
South West from this strange place, you will reach a fortress which is under attack from some kind of dino-lizards monsters. The guards of Calpheon again are trying to keep their ground however they can.
At this point you need to be over level 45 or even 50 to hunt on the areas bellow. The more you travel to the South, the more stronger the monsters are. At the Southern area of Calpheon you will find a large forest full of life. There you will find boars, strange creatures, huge ogres, trees, even camps of orcs.
In the deep forest you will also find few small villages full of carpenters. Here is the Trent Town.
Deeper and deeper on the forest you will find some giant Cyclops ready to kill anything that pass next of them.
And more deeper in the dark corners of the forest, you will find some tree houses, dark huge bats and another village, the Bear Village.
If you have reach that deep in the forest, it means you have reach the first soft level cap of level 50. Although there are some other ares as well. The Giants Post South of the village Kaplan and the very end North side of Calpheon. Northwest from Calpheon you will find a Port village.
Northeast from this village, you will find a great beach full of bandits and again some kind of dino-lizard creatures. Although that area was restricted from CBT3, the first days for some reason you were able to go there and have the chance to snatch some photos.
Those where the most important areas of CBT3, hopefully in the next open beta, more areas like the areas from Vallencia and Mediah will be revealed.
Here you can watch a small scenery video showing some areas and few nice sunsets.
