BDO Sailing Exp items help us to earn experience in leveling the Sailing Life Skill. Sailing Life skill level is important for two major reasons: ship skills and sailing buffs.

 

Sailing Level Benefits:

  • BreezySail – one of the most desired ship skills requires Skilled 1 Sailing. BreezySail helps speed up slow travel across salty waters. You are able to use a new ship skill, each time you gain a Sailing level.
  • Sailing Mastery – Sailing levels add to the total that is calculated for Sailing Mastery. Sailing Mastery gives a boost to your ship’s Manuverability. (Increases Speed, Accel, Turn, and Break)

Sailing level is viewed by pressing P > “Life Skill” tab.

Sailing Mastery is under “Learn More” button or “Life Skill” tab.

Leveling the Sailing Life Skill is made easier with Sailing gear and quests.

Leveling the Sailing Life Skill

Leveling the Sailing Life Skill can feel slower than leveling other Life Skills. This is because actual sailing on your ship doesn’t level it too much.

Primary Methods of Leveling Sailing:

  • Hunting Young Sea Monsters – found south of Oquilla’s Eye and around the edges of Ross Sea. They often drop a Sailing Exp item along with their loot.
  • Sailing Quests
    • Sailing Dailies – the majority of your Sailing Levels will come from these.
    • Ravinia’s Quest Line – the letter line of quests gives a large amount of Sailing Exp over 7 days.
    • Sailing Main Quest Line – see details below

 

Main Sailing Quest

  • Main Sailing Quest Requirement: level 50+
  • Main Sailing Quest Line:
    • To view this quest line press O key then Suggested tab. Look for the section titled  “[The Great Expedition] Oquilla’s Eye”.
    • Sailing Main Quest Line Start:
       – Vigorous Velia

Sailing Gear & Sailing Items (Quick List)

Here is a list of all the sailing gear and items that help boost Sailing XP. I have also included Life Skill XP boosts as well, since Sailing is a Life Skill. (However the developers have confirmed that Life Skill buffs do not impact Sailing Skill obtained by defeating Young Sea Monsters, but should work for Great Ocean sailing and quests.)
