BDO Simplified Main Quest is an optional quest line to quickly complete much of the main quest line. It allows us to do this by completing a series of quests in which we must reach specific levels. Levels can be obtained normally or via Fughar’s Timepiece. (Normal leveling is done via grinding or questing with a Chenga Tome.)
- Special Growth Questline:
- Be a Season Character on a Season Server
- complete the quest, “[Balenos] Dark Clouds Over Velia” (part of the main beginner Balenos questline) or “[Balenos] Farewell, Grusha” later on in the Balenos quest line.
- select “[Crossroad] Simplified” button on the “Select Quest” pop-up window that appears after completing “[Balenos] Dark Clouds Over Velia” or “[Balenos] Farewell, Grusha”.
- Then talk to Fughar for quest: “[Special Growth] Birth of a Prestigious Family”
- view progress: press O key then Main tab

Simplified Main Quest Start
The Simplified Main Quest line starts after you enter Velia and have completed the quest, “[Balenos] Dark Clouds Over Velia” given by Hans, the guard stationed at the road into Velia.
After completing this quest by speaking to Alustin, you will get a pop up window like a Crossroad Quest.
Choose the button that says, “[Crossroad] Simplified.”
The Simplified Questline will start with the quest “[Special Growth] Birth of Prestigious Family” given by Black Spirit.
Hans – Velia Gate Guard
OPTIONAL: You CAN choose to complete the simplified quest line later on in the Balenos quest chain. If you do this, look for the quest called, “[Balenos] Farewell, Grusha.” You will again get a pop-up window asking you to choose a Crossroad quest. Choose the button that says, “[Crossroad] Simplified.”
NOTE: Choosing “[Crossroad] Simplified” skips (and completes) the rest of Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, and Mediah main quests lines! Don’t choose this if you like to quest!
You will NOT be able to pickup up at a later time Serendia, Calpheon, or Mediah main questlines if you accept the simplified questline!
If you have already completed the Balenos Main Questline too far, you CAN’T accept the Simplified questline. (If you completed “[Balenos] Tiny Nose in Chains” you accidentally went too far.)
If this has happened to you, you can delete your Season Character and start over to obtain the Simplified Main Questline option again. (Support can’t undo quests you’ve already done.)
Simplified Main Quest Line Rewards
Season 6 inventory after completing all of the Simplified Quest Line.
Here is a detailed list of the rewards for each level obtained.
Simplified Main Quest Line Gear
When you choose the Simplified Main Quest Line, you don’t have to worry about gear.
A full set of Naru Gear and enough Beginner Black Stones to enhance it to PEN is awarded to you by level 55.
Optional Main Quest Line Gear
Your old main quest line gear can be transfered to your Season Character.
It can be worn immediately by a level 1 Season Character, if you have already done the main quest on a different character.
Main Quest Line Weapons:
You can use these weapons, if you have an old box for them in storage, but the chances of that are slim, since they reworked some to give the weapons insead of boxes.
NOTE: you will not be able to use an Awakening Box, if the class Awakening hasn’t been released yet.
Copied Q&A from Pearl Abyss:
Can I go back to the normal main questline by forfeiting the simplified questline?
If your character has accepted and completed the first simplified quest, [Season] Birth of Prestigious Family, you will not be able to return to the original main questline even if you forfeit the simplified main questline. However, if you have only accepted the quest, [Season] Birth of Prestigious Family, and haven’t completed it yet, you can forfeit this quest to return to the original main questline.
On the other hand, if you’ve already completed [Season] Birth of Prestigious Family but no longer wish to progress through the simplified main questline, you will need to create a new season character to progress through the original main questline. If you do plan on deleting your season character, be aware that your season character’s items will also be deleted!
● You can also accept the “simplified questline” exclusive to season characters during the renewed Balenos main questline.
* Since there are two Crossroad points during the questline, you can also complete the entire main questline, then proceed with the simplified questline if you so desire.
– The shared conditions to proceed with the simplified main questline is as follows.
