Frenzy Draught vs. Giant’s Draught

Which Combat Potion is Best?
Frenzy Draught is a very powerful combat potion and comparable to Beast’s Draught. Many players report that Frenzy Draught does more damage than Beast’s Draught. They have also said that Frenzy Draught makes them not have to heal because of the HP recovery buff.

Frenzy Draught Pros:

  • Highest AP of all Draughts
  • Highest Accuracy of all Draughts
  • Buffs Critical Damage, the most common Special Attack damage type

  • Only defense buff is the +200 Stamina.

Frenzy Draught + Elixir of the Deep Sea
Elixir of the Deep Sea would be an awesome compliment to Frenzy Draught. It fills in the Special Attack Damage vacancy. Good luck finding it on Central Market though! It takes a very rare drop, Coral Crystal, from gathering hard to find Green, Blue, and Rounded Purple Coral.

Frenzy Draught + Perfume of Courage
Next best potion to use with Frenzy Draught is Perfume of Courage, which gives a nice 20 AP. Both potions would give you a massive +40 AP.


Tears of the Falling Moon

Tears of the Falling Moon can only be purchased at an <Old Moon Manager> NPC. They cost 100,000 Silver each. You need 1 per Frenzy Draught recipe.

Grinding in Protty Cave for Abyssal Essence

Kaz Protty
Level: 61

    BDO Dream Horse: Doom

Zera Protty
Level: 60

    BDO Dream Horse: Arduanatt

Protty
Level: 60

    BDO Dream Horse: Dine

The difficulty of Protty Cave has been compared to that of Crescent Shrine in Valenica

It is a winding cave system with many levels.

There are NPCs located just inside to repair armor, sell, and buy potions.

Protty Cave Requirements

  • Minimum AP: 170
  • Minimum DP: 230
  • One-Hit AP: 250
  • Recommended DP: 250
  • Character Level: Monster levels are 59 and 60 (Players below these levels may experience higher monster evasion/damage.)

The game’s recommended AP for Protty Cave is 170. However, this is more like a minimum recommendation. You may get frustrated grinding here at that AP level because the mobs will not die in one hit.

Characters can come here lower than levels 59 and 60, especially if they have high gear scores.

To get more detailed info about Protty Cave and how to get there, please read our Underwater Ruins & Protty Cave Guide



Grinding in Sycraia for Abyssal Essence

Damaged Pirash
Level: 61

Sycraia Underwater Ruins is deep underwater and protected by a semi-invisible dome barrier. The trick is finding one of four entrances through the barrier and into the grinding area.

The center of the grinding area has a huge circular stone structure that is easy to spot from far away.

Once you swim through one of four stone entrances, you immediately stop swimming and can breathe and fight normally.

Sycraia Underwater Ruins Requirements

  • Minimum AP: 250
  • Minimum DP: 280
  • One-Hit AP: not possible
  • Recommended DP: as much as you can get! 🙂
  • Character Level: Monster levels are mostly 60 (Players below these levels may experience higher monster evasion/damage.)

The game’s recommended AP for Sycraia Underwater Ruins is 230. However, this is a low recommendation. You may get frustrated grinding here at that AP level because the mobs will die slowly.
