If I thought I was going to just hop back on and enjoy the expansion, I obviously didn't put much thought into it at all. It took me several hours to just remember the stuff I already knew and took several more to make any progress.
While I am a huge fan of less hand holding, Black Desert takes this to the extreme. As there isn't a huge English community -- it's often hard to even find the answers you're looking for online.
Finding my mount and ship, getting my workers back on their missions, and diving back into my quests was a chore. I appreciate the massive complexity of BDO, but there has to be some effort to make it a little easier on returning and new players.
I was so ready to re-experience the stunning combat and instead, I was busy obsessing over where I left my wagon and completing a hundred fetch quests. Help.
