Black Desert Online introduced new Crossroad Quests in a patch on 12 December 2018.

Players now must choose one of three story lines for each character.

Crossroad Quests give us the ability to experience BDO in new ways. Each Crossroad quest has a unique story and takes you through different monster zones.

BDO Crossroad Quest Choices:

  • Inventory: same Inventory slots (Total Black Spirit’s Gift Inventory: 23)
  • Knowledge: each Crossroad Quest gives an opportunity to get different Knowledge topics.
  • Items: same basic beginner gear (Basteer weapons, AP accessories, etc)
  • Start NPC: Progress through the main story (O key then Main tab.) and you will encounter the quest, Paying Off Debts, to take money to Bobby Lauren in Heidel. After turning this in, you will have a window appear where you must select a Crossroad quest line.
  • No Going Back: once you make a choice, you can’t change your mind. If you want to experience a different Crossroad quest, you must do so on an Alt.

Totals for the Second Crossroad Quest Line

  • Skill Points: 72
  • Contribution Exp: 8025
  • Blackstone (Weapon): 7
  • Blackstone (Armor): 20

I am currently working on guides for the other two Crossroad quest choices. We’ll see how different the rewards are soon! 🙂 See a comparison of the Crossroad Quest lines in the summary at the bottom of the page.

BDO Crossroad Quest Story

[Crossroad] Quest Official Patch Notes:

The second path begins with the quest [Crossroad] Silence, We’re Done Here!. This path will lead you to NPCs around cities and towns that will ask you to help them with their big and small problems. Follow this path past the northern sections of Calpheon to arrive in Keplan. This is where you will start the quests covering the story about Oze, the daughter of the Lord of Keplan that has gone missing.

BDO Crossroad Quest: Silence, We’re Done Here!

[Crossroad] Quest Window Description:

Listen to the Black Spirit’s whispers and what the villagers have to say to proceed. The quests in this route is
mainly centered around defeating monsters compared to other quest routes. The story of Lord of Keplan’s
daugther, Oze, will begin once you’re half way through Calpheon.

Sigh, aren’t you tired of listening to their complaints all the time? When did merchants ever care about anything other than profit?

Hehe… Considering all that’s been done, wouldn’t it be more interesting to just pay a visit to the Grand Chamberlain? He’s the one with power after all. People like you have bigger and better things to do! – Black Spirit

BDO Crossroad Quest Comparison

Which Crossroad Quest is the Best?

So far, it looks like the first Crossroad quest offers more of everything. It has 15 more Skill Points and a handful more Armor Stones. But it also has a much higher quest count. As I was going through the quests, it also seemed to have many more optional quests for gold bars.

The second Crossroad quest option is perfect for those just wanting a quick run through without allot of quests getting in the way. I think it caters for those more interested in hunting mobs. In fact, each section has at least one [Repeat] quest you can do for more combat fun that will reward you with 150 Contribution Exp each.
