5 Ways To Earn Money In Black Desert Online

Black Desert Online Money

There are plenty of activities that you can take part in Black Desert Online. In order to do most of the things in the game, you need money. In this Black Desert Online guide, we are going to walk you through the best ways in which you can earn money in the game.

How To Make Money In Black Desert Online

The following are the different ways in which you can make money in Black Desert Online:

Horse Training

One of the ways in which you can make money is by catching wild horses, training them, and then selling them for huge amounts of money. Duvencrune is one of the locations that we can recommend as you can find plenty of tier 4 and 5 horses here.

Once you have caught a few horses, you can attract them to your wagon. We recommend leaving the wagon on auto so that the horses can get some passive experience. You need to get the horses to level 15 in order to trade them for Imperial Seals. You can trade these in for Black Magic Crystals, which can be sold for a very high price. 


Fishing is another way in which you can earn money. It is a slow and low-effort method of earning money but you can earn a decent amount. You do not need to be at a high level and you can get a basic fishing rod pretty early on in the game. 

Once you have the rod, you can give it to a character and have them auto-fish. This will earn you money passively. You can go about your day and complete other tasks but you should check in with the character from time to time in order to see what the catch is.


Bartering is an easy way of making some money in Black Desert Online. You do not need to put in a lot of effort as you can just leave the game on auto. You will need to get a sailboat and travel from one port to another in order to barter. This is not a quick way to make a lot of money but it does pile up over time.

Gathering And Selling

You can make money by gathering resources and then selling them. You can sell resources such as Wolf meat, Caphras, and Dust. You can also craft them into high-tier items in order to sell them for a higher price. You are not going to make a lot of money with this method but it is great for beginners that cannot make money using the other methods.

Cooking Food

You can cook different meals using the ingredients that you have and sell the final product. The higher the rarity of the dish, the more money you can make from it. Dishes like Pickled Vegetables and Lean Meat Salad are easy to cook and give you a decent profit margin.

These are the different ways in which you can make money in Black Desert Online.
