BDO Asula Set Guide (Black Desert Online)

BDO Asula Set

The Black Desert Online Asula Set helps players who are reaching level 51, and are able to venture safely into Mediah with 75AP/110DP. It's the best unenhanced AP accessory set currently in BDO. Even unenhanced, it rivals blue PRI enhanced accessories like the popular I PRI: Blue Coral Earring. The Asula Set of 6 accessories gives a total of +45 AP and +7 DP. It also adds 20 Accuracy, 7 Damage Reduction, and 350 Max HP, with 100LT to Weight. (All stats unenhanced. For Asula Enhancement, see below.)

Asula Set for Gear Progression:
The Asula Set is a nice accessory set for players that see an upgrade from their current accessories. For example, players that only have blue grade PRI accessories. This set isn't considered viable for long term, or an end game option, but it can help you get to where you need to be for PVP and high-level gear progression. Once a player begins attaining multiple DUO+ blue grade accessories, like DUO Witch’s Earring, DUO Mark of Shadow, etc, they can start replacing their Asula Set pieces.

Asula NecklaceAsula Necklace

If we do a comparison of the Asula Necklace to another popular neck choice in BDO, we discover that, when it comes to unenhanced necklaces, the Asula Necklace is the winner. It has 1 more AP than the Ogre necklace and 3 more DP + 3 more DR. It's even better for those carefully watching their LT numbers with a 75% weight reduction when compared to the Ogre necklace's 1 LT. But by itself, the Asula Necklace looses to accuracy. However, if used with 4 other Asula pieces, it's the clear winner having a set bonus of +20 accuracy.

Obtaining the Asula Necklace

The Asula Necklace can be obtained through an NPC exchange quest called [EXC] Asula's Crimson Eye Necklace from Yisar Pjetyo, the alchemist in Tarif. Or you can simply grind until one drops from monsters located in the Abandoned Iron Mine. The node is found west of Abun and SE of Tarif in SE Mediah Territory. This level 51+ Khuruto stronghold has a recomended AP of 75 and DP of 110. Drop rates range from .05% for killing guards to the highest of .1% (1 in 1000) for killing Rhutum Chief Priests

Asula Necklace Quest Option:
Black Spirit will give you the Necklace of Magical Power quest to speak to Bianstimi, in Calpheon, who will give you the quest [Repeat] Necklace of Sealed Magical Power #1 which rewards 5 Seal of Promise and unlocks other repeatable quests for more. Ultimately, your goal is to obtain 7 Necklace of Sealed Magical Power by grinding mobs in Calpheon Territory. Most players recomend you do not go this route for the necklace as it requires more mob kills and constant back and forth to Calpheon for quest turn ins. (49 quest turn-ins)

Asula Earring Asula Earring

Lets compare the unenhanced Asula Earring to a player favorite, the Witch's Earring. The Asula Earring has 2 more AP and 25 more HP. By itself, the Asula Earring looses in accuracy to the Witch's Earring. However, if used with 4 other Asula pieces, it makes up for poor item accuracy with a set bonus of +20 accuracy.

Obtaining the Asula Earring

The Asula Earring can be obtained through an NPC exchange quest called [EXC] Asula's Crimson Eye Earring from Yisar Pjetyo, the alchemist in Tarif. Or you can simply grind until one drops by hunting mobs located in Helms Post. The node is found NE of Heidel and west of Kusha in NW Mediah Territory. This level 52+ Helm stronghold has a recomended AP of 80 and DP of 130. Drop rate is .07% for all Helms mobs. Be on guard against the more difficult golems and Helms in the cave.

Asula Earring Map Location

Asula Earring Quest Option:
For the Asula Earring quest option, you need Tokens of Promise, which are the same tokens you need for the Dim Armor, and Asula ring as well. You obtain tokens by completing quests to kill a bunch of Calpheon mobs. Two of them give you 5 Tokens of Promise per quest. [Repeat] Hexe Sanctuary Analysis from Becker along the road leading to Hexe Sanctuary hunting grounds and [Repeat] Ring of Sealed Magical Power from Bacho Ladericcio at Abandoned Monastery. Hexe mobs required for each quest is 90. Abandoned Monastery mobs required is 60. Ultimately your goal is to obtain 7 Earring of Sealed Magical Power by grinding mobs and turning in these quests, getting tokens, and repeat. As with the neckalce, it might be easier just to skip the token quests and grind for the completed earring later in Mediah.

3 Tokens of Promise = 1 Earring of Dim Magical Power
5 Tokens of Promise + 1 Earring of Dim Magical Power = 1 Earring of Concentrated Magical Power
10 Tokens of Promise + 1 Earring of Concentrated Magical Power = 1 Earring of Sealed Magical Power

Asula Ring Asula Ring

The Asula ring is yet another powerful ring if we just do a comparison of unenhanced blue grade rings. It has 2 more AP than the Mark of Shadow with 2 more DP and 2 more DR. Again, we see another Asula accessory failing by itself in accuracy. However, the 5-set accuracy bonus of +20 makes up for this.

Obtaining the Asula Ring

The Asula Ring can be obtained through an NPC exchange quest called [EXC] Asula's Crimson Eye Ring from Yisar Pjetyo, the alchemist in Tarif. You can also do a nonrepeatable main story quest to obtain an Asula Ring by completing Leader of Altinova, which involves a short quest chain talking to several NPCs in Altinova. Or you can simply grind until one drops by hunting mobs located in Helms Post. The node is found NE of Heidel and west of Kusha in NW Mediah Territory. This level 52+ Helm stronghold has a recomended AP of 80 and DP of 130. Drop rate is .07% for all Helms mobs. Beware of ouchy, viscous golems and the Helms inside the cave!

Asula Ring Quest

Asula Ring Quest Option #1 (Easy Way):
The main story quest for the Asula Ring is very easy, but you can only do it once per character. So expect to do some grinding for ring #2. You will probably want to hunt at Helms anyway for the matching earrings. The entire Asula Ring quest chain takes place in Altinova. You can easily navigate the quest chain by going to your Quest panel (O key), then clicking the Main tab. Find the tab labeled [Lv.51 Mediah] Black Aura that Threatens Mediah. You will see there that the quest chain begins with the quest Bridle of Destiny given by Sirare. Just click the navigate icon next to the quest and it will form a path to her.

Asula Ring Quest Option #2 (Hard Way):
Asula Ring quest option #2 is another quest method you can use. As with the earring, you need Tokens of Promise, which are the same tokens you need for the Dim Armor. You get tokens by fullfilling quests to kill mobs. Two of these quests give 5 Tokens of Promise for each quest. [Repeat] Hexe Sanctuary Analysis from Becker, stationed on the road to Hexe Sanctuary node. And there is [Repeat] Ring of Sealed Magical Power from Bacho Ladericcio, located at the Abandoned Monastery node. Hexe mobs required for each quest is 90. Abandoned Monastery requires you to kill 60. Ultimately, your goal is to obtain 7 Ring of Sealed Magical Power by killing mobs and completing quests to get tokens. As with the neckalce, it might be easier just to skip the token quests and grind for the completed ring later in Mediah.

Token of Promise & Ring Exchange Data:
3 Tokens of Promise = 1 Ring of Dim Magical Power
5 Tokens of Promise+1 Ring of Dim Magical Power = 1 Ring of Concentrated Magical Power
10 Tokens of Promise+1 Ring of Concentrated Magical Power = 1 Ring of Sealed Magical Power

Asula Belt Asula Belt

Lets see how the Asula Belt measures up! It has 1 more AP than the Tree Spirit Belt and gives 20 more LT. But by itself, the Asula Belt looses pretty badly to the Spirit Belt's whopping 6 accuracy. But that +20 accuracy bonus for 5 Asula accessories is tough to beat. For unenhanced, blue grade belts, The Asula Belt holds its own.

Obtaining the Asula Belt

The Asula Belt can be obtained through an NPC exchange quest called [EXC] Asula's Crimson Eye Belt from Yisar Pjetyo, the alchemist in Tarif. Or you can simply grind until one drops by hunting mobs located around Elric Shrine. The node is found NE of Heidel and west of Kusha in NW Mediah Territory. This level 52+ Elric stronghold has a recomended AP of 80 and DP of 150. Drop rate is .05% to .1% for Elric mobs.

Asula Belt Map Location

Asula Belt Quest Option:
For the Asula Belt, you need Rhutum Amulets. You obtain amulets by completing a quest to kill Rhutums in SW Calpheon. Pick up the quest called [Repeat] Rhutums Clean-Up Operation from Elinke Visamin, the Node Manager of Rhutum Sentry Post, which is SE of Lake Kaia. Rhutum kills required for each quest is 80. Ultimately, your goal is to obtain 7 Sturdy Rhutum Elite Fighter Belts by grinding Rhutums and turning in the quests, getting amulets, and turning them into two different belts. As with the necklace, it might be easier just to skip the Rhutum Amulet grinding and hunt for a completed belt a little later in Mediah.

2 Rhutum Amulets = 1 Rhutum Elite Fighter Belt
4 Rhutum Amulets + 1 Rhutum Elite Fighter Belt = 1 Sturdy Rhutum Elite Fighter Belt

Asula Set Upgrade (Enhancement / Enchantment)

Update 5-23-18 Patch Notes: Asula's Crimson Eye accessories enhanced up to DUO (II) level will now be obtainable as loot in parts of the following areas of Mediah: Elric Shrine, Helms Post, Abandoned Iron Mine

It has been reported that enhancing and upgrading the Asula Set is much easier than enhancing blue grade accessories. Players have revealed it feels similar to upgrading green grade accessories, which can often be successful with 0 to 5 failstacks on a PRI attempt. Enchanting the Asula set is much cheaper than enhancing other blue grade accessories, because they cannot be sold at the Marketplace and have a vendor sale price of only 150k. Compare that to the 6+ million cost of failing an enchant when you mash two Blue Coral Earrings together with expensive failstacks.

Asula Enhancement Levels
(for each accessory piece)
Enhancement +DR +Monster AP
PRI +1 +1
DUO +1 +2
TRI +2 +3
TET +2 +4
PEN +3 +5

Should I Upgrade my Asula?
Enchanting the Asula Set looks like a good prospect, especially if you already have lots of the account bound materials on hand because you had fun hunting the mobs that drop them. Why not mash everything together and see what happens? You will loose some silver because you could have sold them to the vendor, but where's your spirit of adventure in that? :) Just teasing. Keep in mind, this is not an end game accessory set! So I can understand if you may want to save any failstacks you gain for more powerful accessories that will eventually surpass the Asula Set and last longer. Some players have reported it's a complete waste to upgrade the Asula Set, but you be the judge.


Asula Upgrade

Asula Set Upgrade Example: TRI

We can see from this example that the biggest problem with upgrading the Asula set is that the AP upgrades only apply to monsters. Sorry PVP players! But that's less of a problem for those still grinding out their gear and uninterested in PVP. With upgrading the Asula Set, you get bonuses to monster AP, Accuracy, DP, and DR.

Exchange 1 Asula’s Weakened Magic item for a different Asula's Weakened accessory.

Asula Exchange NPCs:

● Rock Post - Lasmin the Blacksmith
● Altinova - Jeweler Belgar
● Sand Grain Bazaar - Jeweler Binvane

Asula is upgraded by using weakened versions of itself that drop in Valenica and Mediah. You take the weakened version, right click it, and combine it with a matching Asula Set acessory. If you fail, both pieces get destroyed. For example, you would combine the Asula's Crimson Eye Ring with the Asula’s Weakened Magic Ring. You can increase your chances with failstacks, however think carefully how much you want to invest in expensive failstacks. Reportedly, Asula accessories have similar chances as green grade accessories and there are reports of sucess with 0-5 failstacks on PRI and 10 failstacks on DUO. Think carefully about investing more fail stacks than 10 since they aren't BIS.

When to start thinking about Upgrading Asula:
You start obtaining the weakened versions of Asula early on in Mediah, but also in Valencia. If you haven't obtained enough weakened versions at level 55, Valencia can be considered. The easiest location in Valencia is probably Bashim Base, which has the lowest recomendations of 160AP / 200DP. (somethinglovely.net) The icon on the map does specify an AP of 100 for Bashims, however this is probably a typo. :)

I used the BDO Planner to calculate when you could venture into Bashim Base in Valencia. What I found is that a TRI weapon and a DUO subweapon with DUO level armor + Asula Accessory Set would meet the recommended AP/DP. See my example of this DUO Armor set in BDO Planner. This gear set has 171 AP and 206 DP.

One strategy you could take, would be to farm solely at the easiest location of Bashims. When you have amassed a ton of Asula’s Weakened Magic Rings, you could exchange them for the Weakened Accessory you are really wanting. For example, you would speak to the closest NPC to Bashim Base, which is Lasmin the Blacksmith in Rock Post. He would exchange your Weakened Asula Ring for a Weakened Asula belt, earring, or necklace. There are reports that the drop rate is low, so expect to camp many hours there and players have said the silver/hour is not too good.

Update 5-30-18 Patch Notes: Asula’s Weakened Magic Accessories have been newly-added as loot items in the following areas:
