    This solution is for BDO Xbox

    Leveling up by AFK Processing is easy. It's much much quicker than leveling up your fishing!

    Tools that will help.

    a)Silver Embroidered Craftsman's Clothes +X. Whatever level u can afford. You can sell later EZ.

    b) Sute Tea (Life EXP +8%

    c) Elixir of Time (Life EXP +10%) if u are sitting there watching processing, because it only lasts 5 minutes.


    1. Buy Cotton or Flax at Central Market and move it to your pocket inventory. I buy stacks of 1,000.

    2. Open your Processing Menu (LT and up on d-pad, then over to the left with analog stick, selecting Processing)

    3. Tab over to Heating. Don't worry about selecting anything from the list, just hit Select A to open your pocket inventory.

    4. Select the stack of cotton or flax.

    5. Hit Y to confirm Let it cook. Walk away, go to sleep, or watch it - it will processes until your material is gone.

    You can then process the cotton or flax thread it produces into fabric, same steps except choose Grinding instead of Heating. More bang for your buck!

    FYI, this took around 14-15 hrs straight crafting and 40-50k stacks of Cotton/Flax. I lost count after 35k... Ended up with 2376 Cotton Fabrics and 393 Flax Fabrics. Flax gave a little more EXP per craft than Cotton did, but Cotton was half the price as Flax. So Cotton it was.

    This was my item lineup usage:
    1. Silver Embroidered Craftman’s Clothes (+1) +10% Processing EXP and / +12% success rate
    2. Pistachio Fried Rice +3% success rate
    3. Sute Tea +8% Life EXP
    Didn’t bother with Elixer of Time since I mostly afked this once while cleaning the house and walking the dog and what not. For me, it wasn’t worth it since I went the cheaper/slower route with Cotton vs other processable goods.

    Again, A++ guide. Good luck to those knocking this one out. Wayyyyy easier than fishing or horse training.

    thatNoseyParkerThere is ZERO cotton registered on the central market? Am I missing something?

    Also it’s a lot more expensive than I thought, over 1mil per 1000 stack
