BDO Guide to Crafting Clothes for Life Activities

BDO Clothing Costumes for Life Skills Training, Cooking, Gathering, Processing

UPDATED! Apr 28, 2017
If you are planning to get serious about any of the life skills in BDO (training, sailing, cooking, gathering, trading, alchemy, etc.) then you’ll want to craft your own clothing to help boost your XP gain. You’ll also get other buffs, such as movement speed or increased crafting success. In this guide, I’ll show you which materials you need for each outfit, along with the base buffs you’ll get. Unlike the quest reward outfits, you can also enhance the clothing you craft to get even better buffs.

Get Ready

Before you spend precious contribution points on a costume mill, you’ll need to gather up the materials you need to craft the clothes. For some mats, that will mean investing in nodes and other buildings to get your mats ready, so you’ll want to start early. Every Life outfit requires black stone powder, so this should be a priority. You can get a refinery to make black stone powder, so grab one now and get your worker going on grinding up some rough stones (you can mine feldspar for those with your pickaxe). You can also grind up crystals for black stone powder.

Next up? You’ll need cloth. You can find wild flax in Mediah, but it’s usually smack in the middle of mobs, so it’s much easier and faster to get a worker to gather it for you at a node like Moretti Plantation or Costa Farm outside of Heidel. Wool is made from fleece, which can be gathered by your worker at Lynch Ranch. Cotton is a bit easier to get, as you can find it in the wild (try the mountain top above Florin). Lastly, you’ll also need specific traces and powders for most costumes, some of which are most easily obtainable as “by-products” at gathering nodes. This means you may need to set a worker up to gather something you don’t really need, just so you can get a few traces or powders on the side.

Of course, many of these materials are also obtainable on the marketplace — but some (like Powder of Earth) are not easy to buy, so you may need to get it all on your own.
