How to play DBO

#1Phil4387Posted 5/12/2011 11:53:28 AM
The Taiwanese version of DBO has entered it's first closed beta recently and doesn't require you to commit any identity fraud to get in. The only downside right now is that there's a very strict schedule for when you can play.

Step 1: Create a Wasabii Account: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5520
Step 2: Obtain a VIP code: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?p=71083#post71083
Step 3: Download the Game: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5845
Step 4: Download the English Patch: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5846

You'll also find the schedule for when the servers are opened here: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5848

The next phase of the Taiwanese version is the open beta. VIP status will no longer be required to play in the open beta, so step 2 of my original post can be ignored.

Having played an MMO before makes it all much easier, but for those who haven't there's a bunch of information to deal with all of those things.

Questing is trivial even without the English patch as there's an in-game quest helper that points you to where you need to be for 99% of the game's quests. There's also a guide with more information, including the 1% of quests that aren't covered by the quest helper, here: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5847#quest

For items, the majority of equipment stats are found on the character sheet. The English patch provides both the English translation and the original Chinese text for each stat on the character sheet so that you can match them up.

For skills, there's a complete translated list of skills and their effects (some of the skills effects are out of date, but only with respect to damage values and such) here: http://www.dbocom.com/skills.php

For those looking for the game's story/lore, most of that has been translated as well, here: http://www.dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=125

Obviously, most of the quest text hasn't been translated due to how much of it there is an how meaningless it must be. If you really can't play a game without knowing exactly why farmer X wants you to kill Y squirrels then you'll just need to wait for the English release.
