BDO Outfits bring more than just cheer to the fashion elite. Outfits come in a wide variety of styles and help us look our best. For 2200 to 4100 Pearls, they also offer useful buffs and some unexpected bonuses. If you have the determination, you can even craft your own for free.

  • Amity +10%
  • Jump Height +0.5 meters

Outfit Set Buffs

All Pearl Functional Costumes, except the Canape Cooking costume, do not qualify for the normal combat Outfit Set Buffs.

Outfit Buffs for Each Seperate Piece

Besides set effects, outfits also provide 1 buff for each separate piece. You do not have to wear a set to get these buffs.

Equipment Tailoring Coupon

Most costumes crafted in the game can’t be worn like a Pearl Costume in the Appearance slots.

This means they take up Armor, Gloves, Shoes, and Helmet slots. They don’t allow you to wear your normal grinding gear that protects you during battle.

You can convert certain crafted costumes and certain Life Skill clothes into Pearl Costumes. This allows you to keep the Appearance and buffs of your functional costume and still wear your armor.
