    Rip my hope for some musa buffs. @INVEN is there a a forum for KR, are PA listening to any suggestion for Musa buffs, let alone for any other class buff suggestions?  Also any ETA for inven Na/Eu where BDO comments from the western side are translated to korean so that the Devs can read out problems/suggestions too.

      Exactly. I've been waiting for Musa buffs for over a year now. To hell with that, I'm rolling a Striker now. Let's just hope that they don't get nerfed just as much as Musas don't get buffed. -.-

      I'm sorry for the delayed response :(

      Although not exactly the same, there is a page in BDO KR's official website that works as the Forum in the BDO NA/EU's official website.

      PA has mentioned in the recent developers' notes they are aware that certain classes are underpowered, and there will be some reworks for them in the near future. Unfortunately, it is not easy for us to directly contact the devs at PA, so we are trying to deliver the players' opinions (both KR and NA/EU) via different posts/articles since KR community and non-KR community have same opinions towards class balances. The devs are always checking the players' opinions, and Musa buffs are in the pipeline! I hope those buffs will arrive soon and work our really well :D

      Below is the link to the news where the devs mentioned Musa (and other classes too) buffs.

    Guys, how can I get that +200Lt buff? I don't have it at the black spirit menu.

      level 1 Yullie


      The buff is only available in the KR server atm. It lasts for 24 hours and available once per family. Look under "Quest" in the Black Spirit Menu, and you can find a quest named "Black Spirit's Gift III (weight buff)." You have to finish all the quests related to Calpheon to get this buff.
