    I like researching stuff so here are a few helpful guides I've stumbled across that might be helpful towards newer players to Bless like myself.

    Power Leveling:
    Source - https://medium.com/@blessgoldah/how-to-level-up-fast-in-bless-online-8f8e4f1af8b3
    "The very first thing you need to do in order to level up is to do the main story first no matter what. With the main story, you will be able to get the giants EXP and that is exactly what you need. So, just stick to the first main story until the first dungeon comes up. Now once you get your first dungeon you then need to stop right there and then start again when you have to get the pet. Get yourself some taming scrolls and then head straight to get the pet at the moment without wasting any more time.

    Also, you have to ring the EXP bonus and for that, you should tame on a low-level pet or turtle. Now it is that time when you will have a certain gear score and if you do have it then you need to get back to the dungeon. Now keep running the dungeon and beat it and if you don’t find a partner for that then don’t worry just stick to it and keep it running and then go back and restart the dungeon. Once you restart it then there are high chances that you will get a partner and if you do then remember that you should not use more than 1 partner to keep the dungeon going. Running the dungeon will give you more of the EXP bonus and ultimately that will help you in leveling up fast. Make sure that while you are running the dungeon, your pet is out all the time because that will also help you in leveling up faster. Keep running the dungeon until you reach some really good levels.

    Now after this process you will have another dungeon to run and this is where you will have to find an elite mob to get your weapons from then. Now at this stage, you will be stuck at level 33 something and the side quests will be telling you that you aren’t at a good level and you have to increase it. This is the time when you will have two options, either farm with the elite mob for an hour or do the side quest. We suggest you opt for farming with the elite mob because that is faster, on the other hand, it is difficult too so if you are ready to invest some effort in it then yes you can go for the farming option. Now after you will reach this point, you will then know the drill and in order to level up more, you will have to face mixed things like sometimes you will have to farm with the mob, run the dungeon or work on the main story. This is a short summary of how exactly can you level up in Bless online."

    @Kelace , not sure exactly which emote is for which daily but those are they ones they have in game. Just have to guess the correct closest one by trial and error when you do them to the class you are told too for the day since its not as user friendly as FFXIV in listing all of them in game in a correct emote category at this time.

    Updated Tweaks for INI changes:
    The INI Settings files are located in: your steam folder: steamapps\common\Bless Online\Engine\Config
    Right click game and hit properties from for your Steam Library to find your local files.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Bless/comments/8oc787/consolidated_ini_tweaks_that_ive_done/

    Changes done to BaseEngine.ini:
    [Engine.LocalPlayer]

    • AspectRatioAxisConstraint=AspectRatio_MaintainYFOV (Fixes FOV and allows for futher zoomout)
    [Engine.Engine]

    • bStaticDecalsEnabled=False

    • bDynamicDecalsEnabled=False

    • bDisablePhysXHardwareSupport=False
    [TextureStreaming]

    • PoolSize=4096 (Don't go above this. DX9 handles 4GB MAX, anything more will revert to minimum)

    • MemoryMargin=1024 (Memory Margin is 1/4 of the PoolSize MAX, so 1024 MAX)

    • UsePriorityStreaming=True

    • bAllowSwitchingStreamingSystem=True

    • UseDynamicStreaming=True

    • bEnableAsyncDefrag=True

    • bEnableAsyncReallocation=True

    • Ma:joy:efragRelocations=512

    • Ma:joy:efragDownShift=128
    [UnrealEd.EditorEngine]

    • FOVAngle=80.000000 (FOV setting. Feels pretty good at 80 for me personally)

    • GodMode=False (GodMode? In an MMO? WUT? Just disable it..it's trying to do things it can't)
    [DevOptions.Shaders] ( Essential for multi-core CPU and modern GPUs )

    • ThreadedShaderCompileThreshold=X (X is the number of physical cores your CPU has)

    • bAllowMultiThreadedShaderCompile=True

    • bAllowDistributedShaderCompile=True
    Changes to BaseSystemSettings:
    These are scattered throughout the file. Best to use the Search function for them.

    • DynamicShadows=False (multiple lines, turns off costly shadows)

    • LightEnvironmentShadows=False (multiple lines)

    • FogVolumes=False (multiple lines, this is not distance fog, only foggy areas you come across)

    • StaticDecals=False (often used to show grime on top of textures)

    • MotionBlur=False (who likes motion blur anyway)

    • Distortion=FALSE (This is listed on multiple lines in the .ini. Change all to False)

    • AllowOpenGL=True

    • bAllowPostprocessMLAA=False

    • bAllowTemporalAA=False (Set to TRUE has caused graphic stuttering for some people)

    • MinShadowResolution=128

    • MinPreShadowResolution=64

    • MaxShadowResolution=1080 (I have it at 1080, assuming this the height of your resolution)

    • UseVsync=True (Forces FPS to your monitors refresh rate)
    Changes to BaseInput.ini:
    • bEnableMouseSmoothing=FALSE (Turns off mouth smoothing)

    • LookUpScale=-300 (Sets vertical movement to match horizontal)
    Changes to BLEngine.ini in BLGame>Config:
    NOTE: This change does give slightly better improvement over changing it in the BaseEngine.ini file.

    • bSmoothFrameRate=TRUE

    • MinSmoothedFrameRate=22

    • MaxSmoothedFrameRate=60(Set this to your monitors refresh rate)
    Show Native FPS Without Using Steam Overlay
    • Type //stat fps into chat. It needs to be 2 /'s and will show up in the lower right of your minimap.
    For NVidia Gfx Cards:
    • Open NVIDIA Control Panel

    • Select "Manage 3D settings" under 3D Settings

    • Select Programs Settings Tab

    • Select Bless (bless.exe) within the drop down (This might take a few secs to load all your programs)

    • If you don't see bless.exe on the default list, you will need to click add and navigate to Steam\steamapps\common\Bless Online\Binaries\Win64

    • Scroll down to "OpenGL rendering GPU"

    • Select your Graphics Card in the dropdown

    • Click Apply
    For AMD GPU's:
    • Open Radeon Settings

    • Select "Gaming" On the menu

    • Select Bless Online (If you don't see bless.exe on the default list, you will need to click add and navigate to Steam\steamapps\common\Bless Online\Binaries\Win64)

    • Switch the "Wait for Vertical Refresh" on with Enhanced Sync

    • Switch the "Open GL Triple Buffering" and put it On

    For the emotes I've figured out:

    /show is shrug
    /strength is warm up
    /taunt is taunt (one that actually lines up /shocker)


    Will update this as I learn more.

    Regarding the Limitation of Emails to your Alts:
    There is a limit of 2 emails per character. Old Empty Mails go against this total, so you must delete them if you wish to send more.
    ===============
    You don't want to use the blacksmith if you can help it, it reduces the maximum durability on gear. Use Repair Hammers.

    One Money Making Tip:
    On an ALT at least level 8, just do the dailies to get your gold then log off. The Dailies are not hard and you should be able to finish it all shortly. Not the most ideal, but effective to build things up if you do it daily.

    This one is just about a necessity. 7 days x 5 medals = 35 + 20 medals for weekly reward = 55 medals = 370 condensed stones!! 370 x 4 chars = 1480 condensed stone per week!!
