Hey All Biohack here. “How do I make money in black desert?” Is a question that gets spammed on this subreddit constantly, with something like 3 new posts asking basically exactly the same thing in the last 24 hours I figured rather than reply t...
The post is a guide on how to make money in Black Desert Online for new players. Some tips include focusing on life skills, selling plywood, and maximizing weight. There are also some jokes and references to the author's goal of becoming a Guru 1 trader.
Thanks but i don't take advice from anyone less than Guru 1 trade Kappa <3
Guru 1 trade? This is a wealth generation guide and not a trading guide! Do you mean rank 1 wealth? :)
It's just a joke since biohack's goal is to be the first guru trader. And since he hasn't reached it yet (afaik) this post isn't good enough yet kappa
tl;dr: sell this man your plywood.
Just for player's situational awareness, the tree accessories (5) plus the asula belt will give you 200 weight. I switch to tree accessories when I process or cook.
Related to this, those who are looking to maximize weight, there is a pretty comprehensive guide here: https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/6gjglf/simple_guide_to_weight_max_weight/
However it does not mention the tree accessories or the Manos Golden Coral belt, so keep those in mind as well.
Can this just be stickied in bold with giant electric pink arrows pointing to it
Thanks for the shoutouts, I promise that 2018 guide series is coming "soon"
This situation has severely affected my family, now we have many debts and finding a job is very difficult. If any of you have experience working online I would like to know, thank you.
Start a side hustle with ebay or mercari? You can sell stuff you already own to free up space or you could go to thrift stores and try to flip stuff. Its not a stable income, but it offers a nice amount of side cash
i know bloggers do but i also wanna know how
Bloggers are no more than just an influencer of sorts they work in a similar fashion.
You invest some money to create a site, add content to it of sort could be anything. Document a project you're working on, a house remodel, recipes if you like to cook whatever. Create accounts with google ads or other ad services and place ads there's an income stream. As you're popularity grows you can begin to reach out to other companies in search of support/sponsorship opportunities. Think of it as a digital spiderweb you want to create. Maintain an instagram that links to a youtube that links to a blog that links to a ... you get the idea feed them grow a following rinse and repeat. Downside it's a long process unless you "get lucky"
Quick edit, it's a great side hobby to get into if you're already passionate about stuff and you like talking to others about common things and you don't mind documentation of sorts. but by no means fast money.
Second edit cause ding bat also selling merchandise to your fans can work too, ie cookbooks, shirts, stickers usual swag stuff.
If you’re into role playing games like dungeons and dragons, you can create your own PDF booklets with new magic items, new adventures, and other similar content. Then, you sell them at DriveThruRPG. Creating a publisher account is free, and you can earn some nice passive income. There are lots of different role playing games out there, so you can pick and “specialize” yourself in one of those games by reading its rules, and then start coming up with new things for it. Creating an entire book of new monsters for a specific game is something doable. Just make sure to follow the template of the monster’s stats and characteristics from the original rules of the game when you create your own. If you don’t feel inspired, look for monsters and creatures from different cultures and myths; then, adapt them! A 30 page book works nicely, and there’s a nice market for it.
I would also like to learn this power of financial stability
Lots of companies are hiring remote customer service positions right now.
It's easy to see why if you've had to get a hold of literally anyone recently.
I guess everybody wants to learn that.
Not OP, but i do want to ask which skills do you find work best for working online?
I’d like to know as well
I'm good at digital art and writing when I try. Willing to learn pretty much anything. I'm only 17 though, not sure how that impacts getting jobs. What would I be able to do?
What do you do?
I'm a CS student and I've been learning programming with recent tech by myself which allowed me to take on some projects for family and friends but nothing beyond, since from where I am most people only work with a master's degree...anyway, is there a way for me to work as a deve...
You absolutely can work online -- just be aware that when starting out, the developing is the easy part, actually finding clients willing to trust and pay you is the part most junior freelances have the most difficulty with, and I'd say that the majority who try probably fail. Most successful freelances are able to leverage their existing relationships with clients they've built through traditional work. Obviously that's not always the case, but it's probably the most common entry point into freelance. Going from scratch as a junior will be tough -- get ready to really push every last potential connection you can! All it takes is one catch at the beginning, and each subsequent one is a little bit easier.
Put together a portfolio website, join a freelancing website and put the link in your profile. Projects are a good way to show you have skills when you have no experience.
Try upwork , freelancer ,Fiverr and so on . I kind of recommend in your first years to get some experience talking to clients . But when you are confident of your skills build your own brand and try to get clients searching you instead of the other way . If you are good trust me , it will happen without much effort.
Move to a developing country so you can compete with the hordes of other developers who can afford to work for 5$/day.
I'm in a developing country and no one would afford to work for 5$/day in here/ pay is just lower here and the cost of life is identical to developed countries... rent here is as expensive as Paris.
Move somewhere cheaper. I hear the weather is nice in Sri Lanka.
There is, but it'll kill you. Avoid fixed price jobs wherever possible, especially large ones. One or two super small ones are okay, but be aware, there'll be scope creep 90% of the time. Make your scopes ridiculously detailed, and over-estimate. Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVkLVRt6c1U
what's scope creep?
You are tasked adding a login system. It should include a signup, login, email verification, and password reset.
You deliver, and they decide that you should include sms. And a user profile page. Oh, and you should be able to change your login. And add social media logins as well.
Oh, and we decided to go with this other completely different design, so you'll have to go back and rework everything at the last moment.
You should have the design spec, a list of specific deliverable features and an agreement about bugs/support as part of the contract to avoid this.
I couldn't help myself https://imgur.com/SJh26aR
It means the scope will suddenly get bigger without any warning. For example, you think a project will be easy but then suddenly when you're midway through you realize there are a bunch of things you forgot to consider and it will take more time than expected to do it.
I need money. Tried fiverr freelancer didn’t work out. Got few offers on LinkedIn which was ultimately a scam even a popular finance influencer with million followers scammed me (not financially). Is making legit money online is a myth without scamming people?
Background: I edit...
Content writing is a serious business that can be done purely remotely with work being pulled off of freelancer.com, upwork etc. However, it takes time and determination to get your gig up and running successfully, initially you might make 50-100rs a day on average, and that could be a few months, but the more time you spend the better it gets. I went from writing for 1p/word to ₹5/word, and my partner now makes enough to pull her into a tax bracket from it as she does it full time while I work part time.
Also, checkout r/beermoneyindia r/beermoney and r/beermoneyglobal
Thanks for your suggestion regarding content writing and subreddits. :)
Let me give you a simple 3 step formula but fucking do it! Don't just give up if you get 1-2 rejection fucking do it first
What do you like?
Anything even if it's anime or CBD or gaming or YouTube whatever the fuck you like the most that you can edit videos of like you said you are a video editor.
Anything there must be something that you are crazy obsessed about.
Let's say for example you like gaming
Write " Gaming video editor"
You will end up with projects and clients reaching out to you for work.
And yes you can make shit load of money on the internet.
I have an agency and we are doing $10k/month giving marketing services.
It's not a lot but better than a soul sucking job.
Just fucking do it
Most people will cry about shit on internet and don't do any action and then cry like how i got scammed
Thanks a ton dude. That’s why people brag on little things on LinkedIn. All points noted senpai
UpWork does work.
Problem with these sites is that there are tons of people just like you. Unless you have great reputation, it will be hard to find anything well-paying.
Can't have it both ways. You're either qualified enough to get work online or you have to join the grind like the rest of India.
Forget to mention this
Pics or it didn’t happen
Bhai, bhaloo ki gand dekhle Google pe. Zyada farak nahi hai 😭
Great one but sadly I don’t have bob n vegene
You don't need bob n vagene my frendo 🌚

Thanks for suggestion. Will definitely check it out :)
Hi. First of all, I'm sorry I know that this question has been answered already but I wasn't able to get my answer from that. I've been using python for almost 2 years and can say that I'm pretty good at it and improving day by day. I want to make some make money off python even ...
Hey, I started learning python in my early teens. A few years later, out of curiosity, I searched freelancing websites. I found a niche market that was appealing to me - browser automation and making bots. I then looked at python libraries that were used in those domains and worked on a few personal projects (automatically logging in to my Facebook, wishing my friend happy birthday, etc) till I got used to the library.
After learning, I set up an account and posted a gig on a freelance website. Within few weeks I had my first order (after a lot of modifications to my profile). Following which orders came one after the other. Most freelance websites do bank transfer/ PayPal payments, I had to use my parent's information to receive my payments. I started this about 5 years ago and I've learned a whole lot of cool new things! All the experience gained can be put on your resume as well!
I’ll give you some compliments and a little tough love, from an older guy whose been through it.
It’s tremendous to be a young person and already be skilled in python/programming. You will set yourself up for a really lucrative and secure job in the future. Great work, it’s not easy to learn and you’ve taught yourself. That’s tremendous.
Nobody will just hand you the keys to a golden idea of spouting money. If it was as easy as just asking a question, and somebody giving you tons of great ideas to make money, why wouldn’t everyone do it? That’s why you see the question gets asked all the time. It’s hard to find money making ideas for your skills, and harder to execute. That’s why not everyone does it.
So that leaves us with your question: how do you find money making ideas using python?
Answer: solve a problem. Look for a solution to something and try to find it out there. If you can’t find it, that’s a great idea to built. Maybe it’s not plausible. Maybe it is. Maybe it fails, maybe it doesn’t. A big part of business is trying and failing- so don’t get discouraged if your first 5, 10, 20 projects don’t make any money. All you need is to find a few that do and go after it.
Final thoughts: Making money on your own requires ingenuity, and the technical know how to actually build a product to solve a problem. Sounds like you might have the latter, so work on the former. It will be hard and nobody is going to hold your hand and lead you to wealth. You must learn to rely on yourself and you’ll succeed- in both python and life.
I’ll get off my soapbox now :). Sorry for formatting on mobile
You seem to have overlooked social skills and connections. This is huge when trying to find profitable activities.
Great response, second this 100%! I specialized in desktop application development and I love my freelancer job. I always build applications for students, streamers, even small companies and I charge my clients 15€ an hour, which for me is just great.
I learned python during the lockdown, and I'm already talking to agents trying to get my product on the market. The only thing I did was solving a problem I had personally, and since many others have the same problem, try to make it user-friendly.
Economics is all about what you can provide. If you find something that no one provides, and which is solvable using python, there are probably people willing to pay for it.
In short: Solve a problem not many others do.
Also: Don't be afraid to start tinkering with electronics. If you know how to solder (doesn't require much), you expand the horizon by a lot in combination with coding experience. Look into micro controllers like Arduino or Raspberry Pi. Arduino has a nice beginner package that teaches you everything you need to get started. I've made lots of stuff with Arduino; dog-training appliances, smart-home system, car alarm, gps tracker. I even made a makeshift tablet using raspberry pi. It's really not that hard, but it allows you to solve a LOT of problems. I haven't come across a problem I haven't been able to solve using coding + micro controllers. Probably because they give your code the much needed access to the physical world, and thereby expand the area of "solvability" to almost everything.
My tip? Create a portfolio of useful, open source software on github, and use them in your resume to get a job.
That takes time though. And what if i need a job now to pay my bills?
You gotta be kidding, right?
Technically you can make money using ransomware but soon after you'll have to runsomehwere.
Sounds great man, I have a pretty successful fiverr profile going as well, how is yours called if I may ask? :)
Any suggestions on how to start this freelance stuff? I tried Upwork once but couldn't get any jobs even after clients said they would give me the job, then I had to pay to submit new applications and I stopped trying.
I find myself giving up ideas because I end up finding something that already solves the problem. I think that I shouldn't do that, but is harder to trick my brain into that. How you guys solve this problem?
Sometimes finding something that already solves a problem isn’t an issue.
For instance, I have a side business where I sell antique prints. There are a ton of other people doing this - but I still pursued it because I knew some of my prints were unique. It actually was a good thing because if other people were doing it and were successful, it means there is a demand for that.
So don’t let it deter you if someone else is doing what you want to do- find a way to put your spin on it, either do it better or market it better, and you can still succeed.
And the hard part isn’t even finding problems to solve and solving them; the hard part is monetizing the solution. That’s the part that nobody really has good answers for, because it’s such a crapshoot.
Yeah! I have great ideas, an ability to execute and have realized- wait, would this even make money? So right off the bat you have to determine if the project has the capacity to generate profit
What type of products did you created?
I'm sorry, but I don't feel like sharing my current project. But it's something that many people need, and the alternative solutions are only half as good as they could be. I believe I can truly make people's lives better if I get this on the market or to some other kind of distributer. I know there's plenty of other such cases, of which there are solutions waiting to be found. Asking around for specific ideas / problems to solve is one ok way to go about it. But I can tell you from experience that of you manage to find the problem as well as the solution by yourself, you will have a much stronger inner drive to build the solution, than if someone gave the idea to you. As in my case, solving a problem you yourself experience is probably the strongest motivator there is, and if others need it as well then that's an opportunity for making money.
