Black Desert Final CBT Pet System: Getting a Cat
Black Desert Online Final CBT has started on 17th Sept 2014. One of the new features introduced in this update is the pet system. The process to get yourself a cat will be described in this article and shown in the video below.
First, go the beginner village, Velia Village and talk to the little kid NPC at the east side of the area, up a gentle slope (see video for the exact location). Accept the quest and look for his pet cat up on the roof on a nearby building down the slope. You can climb up the roof by getting up to the nearby wall first.
Just look for his cat on the roof and go back to the kid to submit the quest. A pet exchange voucher will be given as the quest reward. Subsequently, just look for the trainer NPC at the middle of the town (there are trainer NPC's in other major towns as well). Register a name for your cat and it will be yours.
Take note that the pet doesn't seems to serve any purpose, at least for this free cat given by quest. I am not sure if better pet will have other real functions or maybe it will be implemented in the OBT. Other pets can be obtained from the kid NPC, provided that you have built sufficient intimacy/affinity with him (refer to my previous guide on NPC affinity). You will need 250 and 750 affinity to buy the vouchers from him, at the price of 100,000 to 150,000 silver (ouch).
