Grinding in Black Desert Online with a limited scale of AP sure is difficult to plan out. You'll be asking yourself a lot of times in what zone you could be farming while being efficient at the same time. Or you will somewhat resort to trial and error, only to end up dying a lot of times or not progressing that much the way you are expecting. Worry no more as I will provide you with the Top 10 Best Grind Spots For 200 AP in Black Desert Online's current and up-to-date meta. Stay completely tuned as you are in for a treat that will definitely be worth your while.


10. Traitor’s Graveyard

This list begins with the ideal grind location for new players. This is your best first-ever farming spot if you just started playing Black Desert Online. The spot is very easy to grind on and has no complicated mechanics whatsoever. This is truly designed for new players. Start from here and grind until you have decent resources to move or skip to another spot.

Why Traitor’s Graveyard is a Great Farming Spot

  • Caphras Stone drops here at a very decent rate.
  • The Witch's Earring drops here.
  • 209,000,000 silver per hour on average.
  • Very friendly to new players.

How it works

  • You only need to choose 2 out of 5 tombstones located in the area to have a rotation.
  • Once you attack the tombstone, your next following attacks will no longer damage the tombstone. It will then attract mobs in the area or summon more mobs.
  • Your objective is to kill the mobs that will now attack and damage the tombstone.
  • Kill the mobs as fast as you can and prevent them from destroying the tombstone entirely to make your grinding very efficient in terms of kill counts.


9. Titium Valley

This next entry on our list will be your first introduction to a moving kind of grind. This is a grinding style that you should be very familiar with if you want to progress further in BDO, as most of the grind spots in the game involve you moving around and making a proper rotation. This is still pretty straightforward but surely will make you familiar with how to properly grind up to the end-game content. This place is surely abandoned nowadays, so feel free to use it as your own zone.

Why Titium Valley is a Great Farming Spot

  • Somehow, a good drop rate for Caphras Stone.
  • Serap’s Necklace drops here.
  • Sealed Black Magic Crystal drops here as well.
  • 217,800,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • There is no right or wrong way to grind on this spot.
  • By now, this is unquestionably an area where you will not be contested for the entire area.
  • Kill as many mobs to your heart's content and make your way towards any direction you deem fit.


8. Blood Wolf Settlement

Farming at the Blood Wolf settlement can be an easy win for low AP players. Not only is it that the place drops interesting items like the Eye of the Ruins Ring, but also you will have a chance to get one of the three main grindable ingredients in making the Ornette's Spirit Essence, a.k.a. the infinite HP pots. It also has a good trash for silver average rate that would give you enough reason to grind here.

Why Blood Wolf Settlement is a Great Farming Spot

  • The Eye of the Ruins Ring drops here.
  • Ash Halfmoon Kagtunak drops here. A rare item needed for the Infinite HP potion.
  • Good Caphras Stone drop rate.
  • 232,700,000 silver on average per hour.

How it works

  • 190 AP is recommended.
  • It can be farmed in any way you want to do your rotation.
  • Kill everything that moves. You will be one-shotting them anyway if you have more than 200 AP, which is very easy to achieve nowadays.
  • There's nothing complicated about this map if you choose to farm SP here.


7. Fadus Habitat

Next, we have the good ol' Fadus Habitat. Despite the fact that this spot doesn't really give you much in terms of trash per silver benefits, it does come with alternative benefits in comparison to that. As a player with low AP, you pretty much just started with the game, and this spot will help you greatly with your gear progression due to the fact that it drops a decent number of Black Stones that can be used to enhance your gear to increase your AP and DP. It is also a good spot if you are looking for a way to spend your Agris efficiently, even at a lower AP.

Why Fadus Habitat is a Great Farming Spot

  • One of the best spot to burn Agris efficiently.
  • Decent drop of Black Stones for your gear progression.
  • Decent drop rate for Caphras Stone as well.
  • Guardian and Destruction Spirit Stone drops often here.

How it works

  • You can start grinding Fadus at the Loopy Tree Forest. Don’t forget to take the quests first for more benefits.
  • This is considered one of the forgotten spots but still farmable and efficient for your Agris, and with that being said, you can pretty much kill on a random rotation here as most of the time you will be alone grinding in this zone.
  • Keep moving and kill as many enemies as you can in a short period of time. That’s the drill, basically. You will be one-shotting them anyway.


6. Tshira Ruins

Tshira Ruins is one of the most populated zones in terms of mob counts. It is also viable to grind because one of the main ingredients for the unlimited MP pots is obtainable here. In the past, the place was heavily contested for spots due to the obtainability of one main ingredient for the infinite MP potions. Nowadays, that is no longer the case as most of the players in BDO’s current meta already have the said infinite potion. In any case that you’ll find players still grinding for the said rate item, it is highly unlikely they will bother your grinding as the zone offers too many mobs for too few players to contest with.

Why Tshira Ruins is a Great Farming Spot

  • Markthanan’s Gland drops here. A rare item needed for the Infinite MP potion.
  • Eye of the Ruins Ring drops here.
  • Good Caphras Stone drop rate.
  • 254,500,000 silvers average per hour.

How it works

  • Rotations here are not as important as in other places.
  • The mobs here are so dense that you can just kill everything in your wake.
  • You may find other players in this area, but mostly they are just doing guild quests and will not bother your grinding at all.
  • The place has plenty of mobs to kill. Regardless of which way you go or how you tackle your grinding approach, here it won’t matter as you will end up killing a lot of mobs per minute in your grinding session.


5. Cadry Ruins

Start at: 0:07

Coming in hot on number 5 is the Cadry Ruins. The zone has plenty to offer. From good trash loot to silver gains, nice accessory drops, decent caphras stones, and also skill points. Skill points are also important, along with your gear progression. And farming in Cadry Ruins while you are still on 200 AP average, it's like you are hitting a lot of birds with one stone. It is highly recommended to farm on this map as early as you can, as it will provide you more with your time and help you progress faster in the game.

Why Cadry Ruins is a Great Farming Spot

  • Ring of Cadry Guardian drops here.
  • Decent drop rate for Caphras Stone and Scroll Written in Ancient Language.
  • Sealed Black Magic Crystal and Artifacts drops here.

How it works

  • I highly suggest you roam around the map first to kill the 7 elite mobs and then proceed to kill the rest of the normal mobs. You will gain a lot of SP and also trash for silver by doing this method. Hitting two birds with one stone.
  • Or you can kill only the normal mobs if you want more SP and don’t care about trash loot.
  • Just like the other straightforward spots mentioned, this is just the same. Start at one end and then U-turn at the next end of the path.


4. Polly’s Forest

I mentioned earlier that skill points are important along with your gear progression, and in terms of skill point gains, Polly's Forest simply is the King for SP grinding. This is actually a close-to-perfect spot for 200 AP players because mobs here are dense yet very easy to kill. The trash loot prices for this zone have also been updated recently, giving you more reasons why you should be grinding here. The only reason why this is not at the top of most of our lists right now is because this is a highly contested area. Either you will choose to farm at Cadry instead, or consider staying tuned in until we unveil the other three zones on this list.

Why Polly’s Forest is a Great Farming Spot

  • Updated trash loot prices so that will give you more silver gain per hour.
  • Easy to kill mobs and good Caphras Stone drop rates.
  • Top 1 map for Skill points gain.

How it works

  • You can start at any point on the outer radius of this map.
  • Then create a zig-zag killing route.
  • Kill three to four cluster mobs, then move to the opposite side, kill three to four cluster mobs, and so on and so forth.
  • Nothing is complicated on this map, and mob density is very high. It is a no-brainer grinding spot.


3. Gahaz Bandit’s Lair

Next on this list is Gahaz Bandit's Lair. It has been a love-hate relationship between this zone and the long-time players of BDO. This was a very popular and heavily contested zone for farming XP, silver, and skill points back when it was released. Then time passed and new zones were released; this zone became forgotten. Everyone abandoned this zone entirely for grinding, while some even hated it for being useless. Until recent changes happened. Trash loot prices were updated by Pearl Abyss, and players started to love this place again. So, if you're looking for some beneficial grinding even at a 200 AP range, this is a great place to grind as the game devs have restored its glory.

Why Gahaz Bandit’s Lair is a Great Farming Spot

  • Due to recent game changes, trash loots now provide very competitive silver gains.
  • It is not a hotly contested area.
  • Good drop rates for Caphras Stone and decent drop rates for Scrolls.

How it works

  • Recommended AP: 140. The area has 2 different rotations.
  • Main: This will start at the entrance and make a path going to the east side and circling back to the entrance. This route has a lot of elite mobs but lower mob density.
  • Cliff: This will start at the cliff found on the west side of the main entrance, where a path will guide you, making a straightforward circular path all the way back to where you started. This route has high mob density but fewer elite mobs.
  • Either route you choose, both basically follow a straight path, and grinding rotations is not confusing at all. It is also easier to understand once you reach the spot or if you have already been here before.


2. Crescent Shrine

In the number 2 spot is the Crescent Shrine. It is not only good because it drops an accessory with a good stat, the Ring of Crescent Guardian, but it is also known for being good for skill point farming and efficient Agris points spending. It does have a high average per hour in terms of trash loot per silver, but the other good part about this zone is that it is not hard to grind here. There are no complicated mechanics or rotations, just a pure chill grinding session with high benefits, even at your 200 AP!

Why Crescent Shrine is a Great Farming Spot

  • Ring of Crescent Guardian drops here.
  • Fair drop rates for Scroll, Artifacts, and Caphras Stone.
  • 270,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Go to Sand Grain Bazaar and then travel on the lower right, heading to the Crescent Shrine spot. Recommended AP: 140.
  • Please remember to bring Purified Water to avoid dying from the desert debuffs.
  • Straightforward rotations. Just follow the valley’s pathway and kill everything while making your way straight to the end.


1. Centaurus Herd

And we're on to the main star of this list, the Centaurus Herd. Boasting the highest trash loot for silver average per hour amongst all the others on this list, this zone is definitely your must priority to grind at 200 AP. It also drops a belt with a good stat, and it offers caphras stones, scrolls, artifacts, and black stones on top of that. There is no way you should be missing out on grinding in Centaurus Herd, so be sure to grind here as fast as possible and for as long as you can. It would not only definitely help you progress in the game, but who knows? It could also be your favorite mid-to-endgame grinding zone.

Why Centaurus Herd is a Great Farming Spot

  • Centaurus Belt drops here.
  • 379,400,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Recommended AP: 190 and DP: 200.
