The Theft Protection

Myths and Facts About Identity Theft


hey everyone welcome to the fourth
episode in my black desert online fresh start series now I did promise at the start of
the week that I had big news on where I was standing with my gold for the first
week of my account which was to earn in excess of 1 billion silver and the
marine reason for this is because I’m not gonna have any artisans because the
markets completely dried up when it comes to enhancement materials like
sharps and hards I just wanna buy gear that’s the only way that I’m gonna
progress quickly is if I buy gear simply spending time farming the amount of
sharps and hards that I would need and then farm in the scrolls for memory
fragments or buying them off the marketplace was just not gonna be quick
enough for me and it wasn’t going to be cost efficient enough so I sat down on
Sunday night and had a thought about what I was gonna do and how I was gonna
make money now I’d been grinding prog no bars and doing read battlefield and
which gives 6 million per win and 4 million per loss and I was doing those
for about an hour before I got incredibly bored I decided that I was
gonna take a risk and enhance it for profit it’s always a risk now if you
turn to accessories that risk is a lot higher than if you do it on armor pieces
purely because of the fact that you don’t just repair the accessories you
have to completely replace any of the accessories that you lose so your asset
essentially on a failed enhancement throw money away now I’m going to show
you where I started with 120,000,000 and I’m gonna run through the enhancements
that I did the probabilities or at least the percentage chances the stacks that I
used and also the overall total of money after each session of enhancing now I do
want to power a disclaimer for you guys this is not something I recommend new
players to do it’s definitely not something I recommend you to do when
you’re completely new to the game when you’re looking to make some quick money
because I’ve spent a lot of time enhancing it now I didn’t grind at all
from Sunday evening right through until today it’s currently quarter 6 in the
evening on Wednesday and I haven’t done any grinding at all all of my income is
come from enhancing and I’ve probably played around 4 hours a day for those
last 3 days all of that has been spent in value enhancing with the exception of
leveling one character 255 for fail stacks but anyway let’s take a look at
the first round where I started with that 120 million and how things went okay so what you’re seeing on screen is
a very basic spreadsheet app in using to track my enhancements so I started off
with 120 million and I bought 13 base mm saris from the marketplace I noticed
that there were very few if any duo’s listed on there now at 18 fail stacks
you can get a 70% chance to go from base to pry which makes it relatively safe or
at least you’d like to think so when enhancing bases to pry and then
providing that you go out a fail stack of 40 you can have a 50% chance to go to
jewel so overall playing the percentages with
enough numbers I figured that more times than not I would end up coming out
better off in terms of getting to door and that can be seen pretty clearly from
this one I started off with 13 bases and I ended up with 3 duo’s so the 13 bases
costed me 140 and million of 400,000 and then the 3 duo sold for 390 million so
after the costs which were the essential essentially just buying the base serifs
I came out with 234 million in profit and that gave me a to total bankroll of
390 million now the problem is I’d used my free fail stacks at this point which
meant that I then had to start shelling out money to buy stones and buying stone
for building fail stacks is an absolute nightmare so I’m gonna put the footage
in the background of me building these fail stacks as well for you to see now
to do this I just used rebuff armor pieces I decided to get 8 ball a weapon
and a piece of armor to plus 14 now the beauty of rebuff is it has the same
percentage increase for the same enhancement percentages as bas gear
which means going from 14 to 15 proves to be a nightmare most of the time
however replac does for some reason also have a tendency to pop on random fail
stacks but I only needed to get to plus 18 and that’s a relatively safe stat to
hit on tree Bluff now what I’ll do as well as I’ll link my fail stacking guide
in the description and again it’ll pop up on screen in that exclamation mark if
you’re not familiar with fail stacking in enhancing then that’s definitely
something to check out but anyway that was the first round it went well
so I decided from this point right I’ve now got a lot more money to invest
I can now buy a lot more bases which means theoretically they should scale of
X mentally I should be able to play the
numbers enhance as much as I possibly can and taking out the fact that I’m
having to buy armor and weapon stones now providing I don’t need to buy too
many I should still be profitable and that leads me into the second round of
enhancing now the second one was interesting so I had a relatively could
fail stack and I decided to in my infinite wisdom I was going to go for
try attempts try selling for four times the price
realistically I needed to succeed on one try out of four duo’s and I would at
least break even or roughly on what my profit would be unfortunately things did
not go to plan so I bought 29 bases at 255 million 200 thousand silver from
there I ended up with five jewels that was 650 million if I’d have sold the
Joe’s there and then however I decided in my infinite wisdom like I said I
would go for try and ended up with one try attempt out of five jewels this was
not good my greed got the better of me and I’d essentially set myself back I’d
ended up wasted a lot of time enhancing I’d spent a lot of money on black stones
from the marketplace and making only ninety million after all of this seemed
like a little bit of a waste of time the reality being is that if I’d have just
done prog no bars or don’t I’ll be have chances are I’d have made the same kind
of money so I decided at this point I was gonna stick to Joe’s I was gonna
live from my lesson and I was just gonna purely invest my money into bases and
from base go to jail this was relatively straightforward because even taking a
risk at lower fail stacks in using 30 stacks I felt like it was quite easy to
achieve this however to get these 30 stacks I was gonna be using costumes so
I was gonna be sniping costumes off the marketplace turning them into vaults cry
and using rebuff to build a 20 stack add in 10 bucks cry to this and then enhance
it on a 30 this gave me roughly a 44% chance or a 41% chance I do forget the
numbers to enhance the duo using this method however it did also mean that now
I had higher cost not only did I have the cost of the black stones were also
of 80 million costume which meant that the percentage is now had to really be
reflective of their chance – it hunts and I needed to do this on a
much larger scale and that leads me to the next round
so unfortunately this time round after factoring in my cost I only came out
with ninety million in profit my grade that got the better of me and I’d
essentially set myself back I’d ended up wasted a lot of time enhancing I’d spent
a lot of money on black stones from the marketplace and making only ninety
million after all of this seemed like a little bit of a waste of time the
reality being is that if I’d have just done Prague no bars or don’t I’ll be
have chances are I’d have made the same kind of money so I decided at this point
I was gonna stick to Joe’s I was gonna live from my lesson and I was just gonna
purely invest my money into basis and from base go to jewel this was
relatively straightforward because even taking a risk at lower fail stacks and
using 30 stacks I felt like it was quite easy to achieve this however to get
these 30 stacks I was gonna be using costumes so I was gonna be sniping
costumes off the marketplace turning them into vaults cry and using rebuff to
build a 20 stack add in ten vaults cry to this and then enhance it on a thirty
this gave me roughly a forty four percent chance or a forty one percent
chance I do forget the numbers to enhance the
duo using this method however it did also mean that now I had higher cost not
only did I have the cost of the black stones were also of 80 million costume
which meant that the percentage is now had to really be reflective of their
chances to enhance and I needed to do this on a much larger scale and that
leads me to the next round a bunch of joy enhancers and also
celebrant to these as I was going this allowed me in total to grab fifty base
saris and create seven jewels put me at a bankroll of nine hundred and ten
million in total this was huge this allowed me to get very close to that one
billion goal now it’s at this point in time that I’m going to consider that
this was a bit of a success because ultimately this was going to allow me to
buy the sock that I wanted at try it was going to allow me money to continue to
do this if I wanted to or ultimately it was gonna allow me to take the next
steps and start investing money elsewhere in the marketplace and then go
about my business improving my gear however that’s not how things played out
so the problem with doing this kind of thing is that you can get very greedy
now I want it to not only hit 1 billion for this video I want it to completely
smash out the park and show you how I’ve managed to make insane amount of money
in the first week of playing that kind of went sideways so let me show you what
happened yep that’s me succeed into one tap a
baseless Pelt to do okay now this was gonna be the star of my downfall and
effectively cost me around five hundred million today I decided that while it’s
a really push it and try and scale what I was doing a lot higher now the
downside of this is the buzz list belts cost three to four times the amount of a
saris necklace which meant that even failing at Prai was gonna set me back
tremendously I got really lucky with this duo so I thought I’m gonna tap this
to try I’m gonna make 1.2 million I’m gonna use a soft cup fail stack and I’ll
be fine that didn’t work out but then at that
point in time I’d lost enough money that I thought well it’s a 70% chance I’ll
get another pry I’ll probably get a couple of prize if I buy four or five
and if I buy four or six bases I’d might get one to prize out of that and
hopefully one or two duo’s and that’s why I had to stop myself I failed
everything that was enhancing I failed six straight pry attempts on buzzers
belts I failed four prior attempts on saris necklaces it just wasn’t gonna
work for me and I ended up throwing away five hundred million which means that
I’m now currently sat on 580 million which is still a good amount of money
for the last three days considering I haven’t been grinding at all however
consider this a cautionary tale if you are thinking of doing any kind of
enhancement for profit accessories can be incredibly profitable but it’s based
entirely off your look and the fact that the percentages can be somewhat
favorable when compared to over enhances only really balances out with enough of
a sample size so keep that in mind if you are gonna do something like this
definitely don’t do it unless you have the money to invest in a large amount of
necklaces or accessories in general that being said I really wish that I’d
recorded all the fails and my reactions on these baseless belts because I think
you would have really enjoyed that it was hilarious for anybody outside
watching because I was incredibly frustrated and incredibly annoyed what
I’ve been relatively straightforward and the percentage is working in my favor
all the way through that series really slapped me in the face today and brought
me down to earth rushing that being said I will continue
to do this I do have some other money-making schemes in mind as well
that I’ll share with you as we go on I do still have the money to buy my trys
ARCA which was ultimately what I set out to do on Sunday and three days to go
from what was effectively nothing to over 500 million is still really good
considering I barely had to grind at all I just did that first hour at the very
start to get the initial capital I hope you found this interesting I hope it’s
been informative for you guys if you do like me updating you on things I am
doing to make money like this then I’ll continue to do it I’m really thankful
that everybody’s been following this series and it’s good to see that people
are really getting on board with the fact that this is completely free to
play and it’s playing from a different perspective and showing people how
somebody with my experience over the last couple years
can translate that into the rapid progression within the game and share
with you every step of the way so thanks for watching guys and I’ll see you in
the next one

  1. I don’t trust my luck with sketchy stuff like this XD I’m the type of person who would fail an enhancement even at 99% 😂😂

  2. Nothing like getting ready to failstack and then reblath pops on 0 stacks….that's the cue that it's not your day to enhance.

  3. Very nice mate! Wish you luck in future. By the way I used to play BDO on PC for about 2 years++ and I've quit. Long story short – do you think it's not too late to start console version?

  4. I do this on Xbox all the time when I have a chunk of money and I'm f2p and I'm one of the top players in the game at 264ap 😌 your past videos have helped a ton.

  5. Hey Vext..Hope all is well! I like this, even though I sitll hate the gambling aspect of it….But does your cost include the costs of reblath and stones? I know you mentioned including the costs of costumes so i assumed that costs and subsequently the profit included the costs of stones and reblath armor as well…But I wanted to be sure…Secondly….Will those Duos reliably sell? I know this question may sound stupid, but I for one am not interested in studying the market as I do this type of work in real life and I am not interested in doing it in a game…But I am ok with making the profits you would have made…that would allow me to enact my current strategy of buying TRI boss gear and going the long route of caphras enhancement (for my own entertainment). So I was wondering if you could answer those two questions. I appreciate it. I feel like you could help reshape the game for "casuals" or people that don't really have the time to invest into the game but want to experience it on some level. Appreciate you.

  6. Sir am I missing something? I’ve gone through the series multiple times now and I swear you keep saying “next video you’ll see how I made money without grinding” but we’re 3 episodes after 1 and I haven’t seen you explain how. I would love to be wrong and someone just correct me, but when do you plan on informing us of passive 1bill method in a week
