Farming For Silver | Billionaire Edition | Xbox One & PC | Black Desert online

What is up my guys, Kira here and today’s
guide is going to be about farming for silver. I have to preface this video with I am by
no means an expert in this life skill and today’s guide is just going to be how I personally
do things as I haven’t yet had a chance to run all the numbers. If you’re familiar with my previous guides
on Imperial Alchemy and Cooking, you’ll know my guides usually come with a massive detailed
spreadsheet and math breakdown. Well today’s guide is going to be the polar
opposite of that, one that can be used by everyone, even the most casual of players
who don’t want to be looking at and editing spreadsheets every week. This guide is about making money the whole
way, in no way is this the best way to power level farming, just how I did it personally
to make silver while also leveling up the lifeskill. What you need to take part in this guide,
as much CP as possible, up to 100. Giant workers in and around velia/heidel/olvia,
an alt with as many inventory slots as possible though do note I did all this with a 75 slot
alt, a value pack if you intend to sell the end products. Farming is just about the easiest, most underrated
lifeskill in the game in my opinion. It’s amazing how easy it is to setup and while
I can’t claim this is the best money making method with the lifeskill, I can say that
it sure beats 100cp of workers on nodes for me. I know that I totally neglected farming up
until recently and when I saw the silver earning potential, I thought why not share that with
any of you who haven’t got on the wave yet. I started out with 5 strong fences, meaning
I could plant up to 50 crops and after checking the numbers was surprised how good the money
was, even just for leveling up the profession. Since then I’ve got to artisan level and put
down 10 strong fences and earning anywhere from 30 to 55 million silver per day, with
about 5 minutes tending my farms every 4 and a half hours. This guide has no crazy setup cost, no pearl
requirements but for maximum profit does require a value pack. The silver earned entirely relies on how many
times per day you can tend your farms, each breed and replant for me is 13 to 15 million,
which means in a 24 hour period the max times you can do this is 5.4, which isn’t realistic
as we do all need sleep. If you can remotely access your computer throughout
the day, breeding just after you wake up and just before bed, you can reliably hit 3 per
day which is between 39 and 45 million silver per day. This adds up to about 1.25 billion silver
a month and once you hit artisan farming and only takes a couple of minutes per breed cycle. I’d say even if you don’t have 100 CP to spare,
put in whatever you can free up and you’ll be making decent money with little effort,
try it out and build yourself up to the maximum. With the time invested, cost invested and
money earned I’d say this is probably the best zero effort silver earning in the game. My numbers are based on what I personally
do and I am in no way saying there aren’t better ways to farm for silver. I know there’s secrets in every life skill
and doing the math on each seed would take weeks, something I am slowly going to begin
doing but with my schedule right now it’s not ideal. So this guide is for the people like me, who
neglected farming and want a super simple setup, to earn some pretty amazing afk income. To get to the stage mentioned above, I say
there’s no setup but that’s actually wrong, you do need to level farming up…Which does
take a while with my method, but fear not because you actually earn pretty good money
while you do this. First let’s go over the setup, I personally
have 10 strong fences on the hillside next to velia, just north of Loggia Farm, packed
as close together as I can get them. I will change these fences to old moon once
I hit master farming but for now, this is what I have. The reason I choose velia is because I have
the most access to giant workers here, with 8 artisans and 2 professionals between heidel,
olvia and velia and apparently it’s just really good for t9 byproducts, which is where we
make the majority of our money. Straight onto how exactly we do this, we take
an alt, get 10 strong fences from this guy in Heidel, or any other NPC that rents strong
fences. Strong Fence is a 10 slot farm, for 10 CP
invested. So that’s where the term 10×10 comes from,
10 farms with 10 slots, for 100 CP. After we have our farms we go place them at
velia hill, north of logia farm, we then go and buy 100 special strawberry seeds. Yes this is our seed money, clever right? After we have our seeds, you can split this
into smaller batches if you have low inventory capacity like me on this alt. We go and plant the seeds, I’m not sure if
there’s a faster way to do this but I just left click the seed, left click the area to
plant and hit space bar. Repeat until planted. I always plant the same exact way just due
to muscle memory but whatever works for you is fine. After you have your seeds planted, they will
start to get either tangled with weeds or infested with pests. This is where you would be tending to the
crops constantly to level up farming really fast, while getting hards and sharps to additionally
make money. But we’re not going to do that because on
this channel, we’re all about that lazy afk silver instead. This is where the 10 giants come into play. Go to the farming icon in the top left, press
list and set your giants to work on the farms one at a time. With giants in velia, olvia and heidel they
will work at the farms on one stamina bar until the whole crop is above 100%. This means you can feed your workers, hit
repeat and go do whatever and have absolutely zero input required until the seeds are grown
and you’re ready to log into your alt to breed. Why exactly do I use giants, other workers
don’t have the stamina required to work on the entire 100% process of the crops in my
experience and having to feed the workers again half way through is just more things
to remember. The full process looked like this for me,
wake up go to my computer, breed all the strawberry seeds on a farm, replant them, move on until
all 10 farms are finished. Drop down the mountain and run to the central
marketplace NPC, put the seeds in the inventory, run back to the farms and log out. Go do whatever it is you have to do for approximately
the next 4-5 hours, log back in the alt, repeat the process. Do this as many times as you can each day
and in about 14 days you should be at artisan farming, give or take a few days. I can’t give the specific numbers as they
did just make farming way faster to level up. Why exactly we do special strawberries in
this method over other seeds? They grow in this area really well and on
EU they are consistently one of the fastest to sell seeds, which means they’re pretty
much always at a high price. Just on seed prices alone you’ll be making
around 5 million silver per breed after taxes, the fruits aren’t a large amount of silver
from these seeds but I personally save them to then use in other crafting or workshops
for more money later. Then comes the byproducts, you get far less
than you would from the method we’ll go over in a second but it all adds up. The byproducts are the same as cooking or
alchemy if you’re familiar with those, except with these we don’t hand them in to an NPC
to make silver. We actually use them in simple cooking from
the processing menu, turning 20 of two at a time into stonetail fodder which can give
you 1 , 2 or 3 each craft. So 40 byproducts can be anywhere from 2.5
to 7.5 million silver pre taxes. As a side note you also have a chance from
all breeding to get mysterious seeds, which you can combine with other seeds to make a
mysterious plant, these are good for getting a lot of fruits but I don’t personally use
them as of yet so I’ll mention they exist and move on. After you have your artisan farming skill,
you’re going to sell all your special strawberry seeds and go grab some Special Wheat seeds. Replant these the same way as before. After breeding seeds at artisan 1 or above
you have a chance to get a Magical version of the seed, this is what we’ll be using going
forward. Each breed after, replant the magical seeds,
these take up 5 slots per farm so you can only plant 2 per farm. After you have all 10 farms full up with magical
wheat seeds this is the setup we use going forward. Sell the rest of your special wheat seeds
on the market, you’ll not need those again. Now when breeding magical seeds they always
give back at least 1 magical seed, but between 1 and 3. They cannot be sold on the marketplace but
they do vendor for 363 thousand silver each. On average I get back 10 seeds to sell each
breeding cycle, so 3.63 million silver. When breeding you will also likely get byproducts,
I’ve had breeds that give me back 0 for a seed and that has given me 11. On a full cycle since recording the stats
I get roughly 93-100 byproducts. If we average stonetail fodder to 2 per craft,
this means 20 byproducts is 2.5 million pre tax. After tax I recorded 9 to 11 million silver
per cycle. You also get fruits, for wheat it’s fruit
of the sun which I have valued at 110k silver on EU , average around 18 of these per cycle
so another 2 million silver pre tax. All in all this if we take averages this is
around 14 million silver per cycle if you sell your stonetail fodder and fruits. This is just pure silver value, the value
goes up if you use fruits to make other items and turn them into further profit. The reason magical seeds are the way to go
for me is that it takes a few minutes to do each cycle and hardly any energy or trips
back to town. When doing the 100 crop special seeds I was
having to use energy potions to keep up with it each day and make a trip to town half way
through harvesting seeds due to my inventory being full of seeds. Though I can’t say for certain if there is
a better magical seed to make more money from as of yet. I should tell you that You can speed make
even mor emoney each day by using fertilizer on your farms to speed up the growth cycle,
this takes roughly an hour off the growth time meaning you can up the earning potential
by quite a lot. This makes getting 4 breeds in a day pretty
easy if you have access to your pc throughout the day. Now combine this with my imperial alchemy
or cooking guides and you’re making some easy money each month with a few minutes per day
on farming and a few hours per week on imperial delivery. With the farming setup your workers will also
deposit the weeds into the bank they come from, which we then use for imperial alchemy
and make even more profit. That’s it for this one guys, if you enjoyed

  1. Great video for all who didn't know about this yet. I'm doing farming for a long time now and it's definitely the best no effort money making method in the game imo.
    Btw special sunflower at the velia coast take less time than special strawberrys and if you don't use workers, u can get a lot more farming exp by cleaning ur fields on your own, so u can get quicker to farming artisan!

  2. how many byproduct u get per magical seed?and how long does it take (after fertilizer ) for a strawberry/wheat cycle? I currently set my farm north heidel. the fastest growing crop there is dry mane grass (near 3h bad temp but still faster than silk honey grass and amanita mushroom )
    i got 100byproducts per cycle (10×10) 3h. but dk how to sell the special seeds.both seeds and fruits are at low price. strawberry seed in NA is at 40k.

  3. great video, wondering when we on xbox will get these magical seeds. Recently on xbox I put in 80CP in farming, still learning on when to get seeds or breed them. At what percentages would you recommend to breed or harvest?

  4. Hey man , thanks for sharing ; i have been using farming to earning some money aswell from stonetail fodder … Which recipe do u suggest is better to use fruit on ? I am currently harvesting Sunflower and Mushroom, but if strawberry is better Its worth a shot….

  5. Hello man ,can you help me with one question? You lvl your farming to artisan just by breeding (3 times/day) ? And how many days/weeks/months youll need for artisan?

  6. with the powerleveling method you can hit artisan 1 within a few days, afterwards the money you make will more than make up for the few days you missed making money.

  7. Thanks for the guide, I'm giving it a try now but still very new to the game.
    Wanted to ask if there's an option for the workers to return alone to the farm after they refill their stamina?
    my giant went back town with 0 stamina when the crop was about 40%

  8. You can put 4 farms together in a square formation. Then you place crops on the edges of the farms and you use fertilizer when standing exactly between them. It will affect crops in all 4 fences and they will grow faster. (Fertilizer has small aoe effect) =)

  9. Using workers on farms is just throwing away farming exp, pruning is a major exp income at first. I'm art10 farming ATM. Don't use workers

  10. please continue to make videos.. the rest of these people who make guides just makes the game so unappealing.. its actually new player friendly.. and you simplified bdo.. LIKE.. dude this is the one thing i understood from you explaining it in a long time. build farm, hire workers, and what too plant..straight to the point no unnecessary talking about bs.. long rant short, best guide for BDO online ive ever seen… honestly Thank you.

  11. Thanks for the video, your english is realy fast and a noob like me was with hard time to follow your words but was an interesting video, thanks

  12. dude… i saw you using different bio products than i was using to make stone tail fodder but i thought each server had a different recipe but my friend asked me why i had so many bioproducts if i was selling the stone tail fodders.
    i always used mutant plant and unusual fruit to make my stuff…
    then… i realised we can used every trash we get from farming to make stone tail fodders.
    i had 2600+ of each of the other 3 bioproducts LOL
