Black Desert Online's Trading System Just Got Updated to Mimic Real-world Economics
By: AwadGorg , Legend Apr 07 /2023
Trading in Black Desert Online just got more “fun,” more “real,” and “easier to understand.”
That’s what Pearl Abyss is saying in their press release, as they just announced they improved the trading system in their MMORPG to mimic "real-world economics." Just like real-world supply and demand dynamics, players must purchase and sell trading items from various locations at the optimal price — so they simulate the intricate economic systems found in real life. Also, players can listen to rumors in towns to anticipate market price changes when trading (rumors that may not always be accurate).
There’s quality of life changes, too. Silver carrying capacity was increased, the price of trade items now depends on the time of purchase, and market prices will change at a fixed time every four hours. Additionally, Pearl Abyss reduced the weight restriction in the Central Market storage and made it so silver can be shared across characters within the same family.
