BDO Horse Taming: Throw Rope

Horse Taming Items

2 items used in horse capturing:

  • Capturing Rope: Buy more than one in case you miss.
  • Lump of Raw Sugar: (Need 1 per horse.)

Purchase Capturing Ropes for 1.5k each at any <Stable Keeper>, inside their shop.

Be careful purchasing too many at a time because they weigh 0.7 LT each. Ooof!!

Every horse taming attempt will consume 1 Capturing Rope (regardless of if you succeed or fail).

BDO Capturing Rope for Horse Breeding
Processing a Sugar Lump for Horse Breeding
BDO Lump of Raw Sugar for Horse Taming

You can purchase Lump of Raw Sugar on the Marketplace for about 2.5k.

You can also craft your own via Processing.

Processing (L) → Heating:

  • 10 Raw Sugar
  • 1 Mineral Water

These are available at Cooking vendors. Click the Find NPC button, then the turkey icon.

 

How to Tame a Horse: Step by Step

  1. Drag and drop the Capturing Ropes and Lumps of Raw Sugar onto your hotkey bar.
  2. Approach the horse, but don’t get too close.
    • If you get too close it will run away.
    • With practice, you will learn the correct distance.
  3. Press the hotkey for your Capturing Rope to equip it.
    • Wait to equip the rope until you are close because it slows your movement speed
  4. Line up your cross hairs with the horse until it turns red.
  5. Press LMB
  6. If you are successful, the first minigame will appear. Press space when the bar is in the blue. (Very similar to the fishing mini-game)
  7. Approach the horse until you see the horse rear up and a SPACE button icon appear.
  8. Rapidly hit your Space bar as quick as you can.
  9. The goal is to get the pointer towards the horse icon on the right. You have 10 seconds to get the pointer over to the right, or you will fail taming.
  10. If you are successful, then you can approach again, but you will probably have to do it more than once.
  11. Once you get all the way to the horse, use 1 sugar lump from your hotkey bar, and then try to mount the horse.
    • From official site: “If the wild horse is on uneven and rough terrain, the probability of taming it is significantly lowered. Also, you can feed the wild horse more Lumps of Raw Sugar to increase the probability, but it maxes out at around four to five Lumps of Raw Sugarsource
    • From official site: “You will now only need to feed a wild horse 1 lump of raw sugar to successfully tame it.” source
  12. If you’ve succeeded, take the horse back to a <Stable Keeper> to register it. You don’t get any Training xp until the horse is registered.
    • You don’t have to ride the newly tamed horse to the <Stable Keeper>. Because it is still very slow, you can dismount and ride the faster horse that you brought to the taming location. Newly tamed horses are slow, but they will follow you. Even if they get left behind, while you ride away, they will eventually teleport to your location.
  13. If you failed the second mini-game, the horse will run away. Repeat from step 2 to try taming again.

It can be challenging at first, but keep at it and you will master horse taming.

You can only tame one horse at a time.

Igor Bartali Log Borrow Cannon Tranan Underfoe
Archived Images of Old Cannon Placement

I thought I’d leave the old guide content hidden here below in case you’re struggling with the new cannon placement. The method below will probably still work, but it’s a blind method preventing you from line of sight viewing of the target.

Patch Notes stated, “Changed the installation location of the cannon so that the location of the target scarecrow can be checked while the cannon is in use.”

 

————————– Archived Before Patch Tips & Images Below ———————-

 

  • You must aim way up high to shoot over the shorter broken part of the castle wall.
  • You cannot see the target dummies that you have to hit behind it in the water.
  • Make sure the cannon is at the highest tilt and do not shoot until you have charged it to full power.
  • Press and keep holding the left mouse button until the second bar at the bottom fills up. Then let go and click again. The cannon will shoot and you must hit the target three times.
  • The following did not work for me and might be temporarily bugged -> Click to use the Cannon, it’ll ping a location on your map on Cron Castle (It won’t set up an auto path so you have to move to the ping yourself)

This quest rewards sailing exp, but is of even greater benefit because it gives enough parts for obtaining an explorer’s compass every three days. Ancient Explorer’s Compass lasts for 3 days, so you will always be able to use your world map to navigate in the Great Ocean.

Quest Objective: Barter 20 times

Quest Rewards:

 1  – Lost Trade Box
 20  – Crow Coin
 1  – Part for Explorer’s Compass

Executive Producer Notes

Copied from the article “Working Towards a Comprehensive Black Desert Online” posted on 13 February 2019 15:00

 

Greetings Adventurers,

This is Jae-hee Kim, the Executive Producer in charge of development for Black Desert Online.

A whole month has already passed since the start of this new year.

As January was the opening month of 2019, we tried to introduce variety of new contents during the last month to make the journey even more enjoyable.

We have introduced countless updates during the past, yet the last couple of months were especially filled with various important patches.

We introduced new contents without rest including Bartali’s Adventure Log, War Hero, Dark Rift, Shadow Arena, Central Market, Privacy Mode, removal of weight for silver, decrease of the variety of loot dropped during the early stages, removal of the Node Connection requirement for trading fish, revealing the enhancement success rates, Devour, and Territory War which is currently under development. (Some of the contents are yet to be released in NA/EU)

I decided to present this Dev Note today as I believed there may be many Adventurers out there who’d like to learn more about the newly introduced contents and the intentions behind them.

Adventure Log

Requirement: Complete the Main Quest in Calpheon (Looking for Adventures), reach Lv.51 then summon Black Spirit.

How to proceed: Clear the mission written on the log, claim each completion reward and receive the next chapter from Black Spirit.

“How can we make adventures more meaningful, fun, and enjoyable with riddles for everyone?”

Previous quests are mostly repetitive and passive as they were intended to deliver the story and guide Adventurers as tutorials.

Early on, the many quests worked together to create different ways to play. However, these play patterns started to become standardized as time passed and the importance of completion rewards increased. This resulted in some quests getting abandoned entirely.

However, the Adventure Log was designed with the intention to add various in-game experiences. It was not only meant for the new Adventurers who just completed the main quests in Calpheon that are still learning the game but also experienced Adventurers. There also isn’t a time limit to allow Adventurers to complete it at their own pace.

The Adventure Log was added for Adventurers to go beyond the existing quests and repetitive tasks to take on new challenges and experiences through various contents. Complete each mission written in the logs and enjoy the small bonuses for characters to gain.

This will allow Adventurers to try something fresh and give them a new motivation by introducing a new challenge. Instead of focusing on the growth of characters only, Adventurers can explore places where they’ve never visited, enjoy different contents never attempted and discover new elements all over the world of Black Desert Online.

There are many ways Adventurers can enjoy Black Desert Online. The Adventure Log can be fun as it gives missions to complete and try many of these ways. For example, Adventurers can fish Grunts at Velia shore, but they can also go out to the ocean, or find a hotspot where seagulls are flying over it. There is the common way of obtaining Black Stones by visiting the Central Market and defeating monsters. Then again, Black Stones can also be exchanged for using Hunter’s Seals, received as quest rewards, obtained from various random boxes, crafted, or earned by playing Shadow Arena. There are so many ways Adventurers can choose to achieve their goals.

We designed Adventure Log to be cleared one after the other whenever Adventurers are able to instead of completing all the missions in one go. Therefore, some missions are easy to complete, and some require time and effort. More importantly, the rewards are applied to all characters within the same Family, which is a great advantage to have when growing new characters.

Are you having fun following Igor Bartali’s past adventures?

We hope our Adventurers enjoy the upcoming updates to the Adventure Log and the various elements within Black Desert Online.
