BDO Processing Guide: T2 Quest Line (Black Desert Online 2018)

Last updated:
BDO Player Processing by Chopping

This Processing Guide was originally written by my sister, Cat, and was edited by me. It's now kept current on GrumpyG. Thanks Sissy Cat! ! I will update this Processing Guide with any new BDO patches/changes. (Cat currently enjoys processing her big heart out as a Witch in Black Desert Online.)

In BDO, the Processing Life Skill allows you to chop, heat, dry, filter, shake, and grind resources into processed materials. These refined items are often used in higher level crafting recipes. Everyone is able to do basic T1 processing. However, if you would like to do the second level of processing, (to create plywoods, ingots, cloth, etc.), BDO requires you to obtain "Beginner" Processing Knowledge. There are up to three tiers of processing: T2 Beginner, T3 Skilled.

----- STEP 1: Obtain Gathering Skill of at least Beginner 7 -----


Empty Bottle for leveling Gathering SkillTo begin the T2 Processing quest line and obtain Beginner Processing Knowledge, you must have your Gathering Skill leveled up to Beginner 7. This is easily done via Empty Bottle gathering at the fountain in Heidel. Purchase 34 Empty Bottles at the Material Vendor near the fountain. Or you can use any river/lake for gathering water. I like Heidel because the Material Vendor is only a couple steps away from the water source.

PRO Tip: Get to Apprentice 4 Gathering Skill to bypass 9 prerequisite Processing advancement quests. If you have this much gathering skill, you can skip to quest number 10 in the quest chain, which is titled "Learning Higher Processing Skills"
BDO Apprentice 4 Gathering for Processing quest line

Gathering level Apprentice 4 is a little more challenging to obtain. You will need about 274 Empty Bottles filled. If you do skip the prerequisite quest chain for processing, then you will miss out on the Shabby Fence and some housing furniture, as well as additional Gathering/Processing XP.

All Processing Quests for tier 2 level knowledge, take place in Serendia, which is South of Velia, Eastern Balenos. The majority take place in Heidel, Serendia's largest city.

Processing Quest Chain Walkthrough for Tier 2 Processing (To make Ingots, Plywood, Cloth, etc.)

BDO Life Skills Quests Turned on for Processing quest line To start the Processing quest line, you need to have at least Beginner Level 7 Gathering Skill. Be sure to turn on All or Life quests in your quest log (O). If you don't do this, NPCs will not offer you any Life Skill quests and you will be unable to learn T2 Processing knowledge. Processing Knowledge is shared between all your characters, so if you complete this quest line, you don't need to repeat the quests on your alts if you don't want to.

Tip:
If you already have Gathering Skill of Apprentice Level 4 or higher, you can skip to quest 10 and go straight to:
