BDO daily sailing quests help those looking to level their Sailing Life Skill. They are also a good resource for materials to upgrade ships and ship gear.

Since patch Sep 20, 2023, sailies are broken up into 4 main areas:

  • Iliya Island Sailing Quests → 6 barter quests and 1 timed sailing quest
  • Oquilla’s Eye Sailing Quests → sea monster and gathering life skill
  • Velia Sailing Quests → 2 timed, sea monster, barter
  • Port Epheria Sailing Quests → sea monster

Happy Sailing!

Sailing Dailies on the Mainland, Iliya, & Oquilla

The Daily Sailing quests below are repeatable each day. Many of the quests require Sailing Beginner 3. Rovinia’s daily sailing quest requires the main sailing quest line, including “Jarette’s Support” which rewards the Bartali Sailboat and Sailor’s Oath.

  • The sea monster quests require you or a friend to have a ship with cannons. (Easiest to obtain is Bartali Sailboat, but for sea monster hunting, you will want at least an Improved Epheria ship.)
  • NOTE: you must be level 50 to shoot a cannon!
  • These repeatable Sailing quests reset every day at midnight (server time).

An Important Sailing Quest

Don’t forget to pick up the sailing daily located on Iliya Island, called [Barter] [Daily] Sailing to a Wider World.

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

 

Dario also has another quest that gives good rewards.

Daily Sailing Quests on Oquilla’s Eye

There are many Sailing quests by the Ross sea. They are located on an island called Oquilla’s Eye, north of Lema Island.

These Sailing quests are good for Sailing Exp, as well as obtaining ship and ship part upgrade materials.

The quests on Oquilla’s Eye are primarily sea monster quests, but there are also a few Life Skill ones.

Main Sailing Quest Line

You no longer have to complete the main Sailing quest line to open up the Oquilla’s Eye quests. (Since patch 2-24-23)

It’s a good quest line to do anyway because it has other goodies like a Sailor, sailor slots, Cog Ship, and Bartali Sailboat.

  • Main Sailing Quest Requirement: level 50+
  • Main Sailing Quest Line:
    • “[The Great Expedition]” under the Suggested tab of your quest window (O).

Determine the difficulty of the sea monsters you would like to hunt.

You have to choose between killing 5 easier young sea monsters or 1 adult sea monster.

You CANNOT do both of the same type of sea monter. Ex. 5 Young Nineshark + 1 Nineshark.

The adult sea monster quests give Crow Coins and Black Stones instead of Carrack materials.
