[Top 10] BDO Best Grind Spots For 240 AP

Best Black Desert Online Grind Spots For 240 AP
240 AP grinding spots? I got you covered for that one!

In this entry, we are going to tackle the top 10 best grind spots for 240 AP in Black Desert Online's current progression line. This is a part 2-series continuation of my previous entry [Top 10] BDO Best Grind Spots For 200 AP. Be sure to check that out first for a better idea and a much wider scope of what we will talk about on this list. Some entries here are re-appearances from said part 1-series as they are still best amongst other zones for the 240 AP bracket. Without further ado, let's dive into this in-depth guide.


10. Gahaz Bandit’s Lair

Let's start with the gahaz. Gahaz Bandit is also great for players in the 240 AP range because of the redemption the zone gets from recent patch adjustments made in this area. Trash loot prices were significantly increased, making its entry once again to this list for the 240 AP bracket. I will not exaggerate this much further as some of you might already have read about this in my part 1 guide for the 200 AP. Let's move on to the next one.

  • 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.
  • 266,000,000 silver average per hour. 

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.


9. Crescent Shrine

Here's another re-entry at number 9, the Crescent Shrine. This area really serves a lot of purposes, especially for low-to mid-range AP players. From XP to skill points to silver, you name it. It's no surprise that you'll continue to see this zone as a viable option for grinding for whatever benefit comes to mind. You simply won't grow tired of it. Well, unless you are packing some serious endgame gear, then that would be a different kind of story.

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.
  • 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.


8. Tooth Fairy Forest

In number 8, we have the Tooth Fairy Forest in the Forest Ronaros. This is one of the spots you should be grinding once you reach 240 AP for you to start grinding for the Ornette's Spirit Essence or the so-called Infinite HP Potion. One of its key ingredients can be found here by grinding, and it is a treasure that is unarguably vital for your endgame adventure in BDO. Be sure to grind here as soon as you can.

Why Tooth Fairy Forest is a Great Farming Spot

  • Ron’s Tintinnabulum drops here. A key ingredient for making the Unlimited HP Potion.
  • Surprisingly have a fair rate for Caphras Stone drop.
  • 276,100,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Go to the south-central area of the Forest of Ronaros. It is the most accessible part of the Tooth Fairy Forest Entrance Area.
  • Once you are there, you can easily make a rotation by following the pathway marked on the map. You can easily distinguish the pathway amongst the grassy fields.
  • Doing so will allow you to make a route with a substantial number of mobs to kill along your path.
  • Just be mindful that mobs spawn here pretty quickly and try not to aggro most of them or else you will end up dying fast. Especially when you are near the Ronaros Mirror.


7. Sherekhan (Day)

The Sherekhan Necropolis is another zone that is ideal for grinding as soon as possible for 240 AP players to craft their unlimited HP pots. Especially during the day, because you will have a better chance of obtaining the Sherekhan's Panacea during this time. This zone also drops magic crystals and some Caphras Stone. If you are looking for a map to progress your adventure in BDO from early to midgame, this zone is good for you to try.

Why Sherekhan (Day) is a Great Farming Spot

  • Sherekhan’s Panacea drops here. Another key ingredient for the Unlimited HP Potion.
  • There is a fair drop rate for Caphras Stone and Orkinrad’s Belt drops here too.
  • 279,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Start at the southeast of the main node, or a few distances away from the Sherekhan’s Necropolis icon on your world map.
  • Kill every mob you can see while heading towards the north side or at the upper right side of the Sherekhan’s Necropolis icon.
  • Once you are there and still killing mobs, you can now head toward the main node’s direction.
  • You now have the option to either retrace your path or start all over again from the southeast of the main node.
  • Please do note that this is a Day Time Sherekhan.


6. Altar Imp Habitat

Next, at the number 6 spot, is the Altar Imp Habitat. The place drops a lot of Shard of the Tearful Night in case you are looking for some "cup crafting." This is also the first party spot zone for this list. Some might say 240 AP might not be enough to grind here, but I already tested it myself. It is doable as long as you are running a Kutum. Your choice of party member to accompany you on your grind session will also be important, as it will be a make or break for the session.

Why Altar Imp Habitat is a Great Farming Spot

  • It has interesting mechanics and is a party spot for 2.
  • Shard of the Tearful Night drop here.
  • 334,600,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • What you need to do first is find a violent mob within the area.
  • Hit it a few times, preferably once only, and then slowly make your way to the nearest flag you can see. Please be mindful of your distance from the violent mob you are luring, as you cannot use your movement skills here or else the violent mob will stop following you and return to its original place. You will lose a lot of time if this happens.
  • Once the violent mob is near the flag, you can now kill it, and it will spawn a huge number of mobs.
  • There is a chance that a Bheg will appear on your spot.


5. Biraghi Den

Biraghi Den is one good spot to consider once you reach 240 AP simply because it has been improved due to the massive Elvia Rework done in the recent patches in Black Desert Online. Some might still say that this is the worst of the seven Elvia maps, but I beg to differ, as it is very grindable for 240 AP without any hassle at all. Is it best? No. Is it good? Yes. That's the straight answer I could give based on my personal trial and error. It is not the best spot for 240 AP, but it is now better compared to its former state.

Why Biraghi Den is a Great Farming Spot

  • A lot of notable drops here. Shard of the Drained Night, Moon’s Split Nail, and Narc’s Lightning.
  • One of the zones that benefitted a lot from the Elvia Rework in BDO.
  • 338,300,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Start at the entrance with the wood fence gate and work your way straight. Just about it.
  • The place is actually just a straight path, mostly consisting of narrow spots.
  • When farming in this zone, there is no pulling or luring required since aggro mobs will tend to rush toward you.
  • Just be mindful and kill ranged mobs first when clearing groups, as melee mobs will surely follow you around and those ranged mobs won’t. This method will make your clearing faster.
  • You also have the option to make a longer route for you to have a back-to-back route wherein you can kill from the entrance to inside and vice versa.


4. Mirumok Ruins

Moving on to a better note, let's talk about Mirumok Ruins. The place will offer you better reasons to grind here at 240 AP since the drop rate here on the Valtarra Eclipsed Belt is some kind of a decent rate. That will serve as your best reason why you should be grinding here in the first place with your given AP range. The belt is a very good investment for endgame builds, so farming here for quite some time will prove your grind worthwhile in the long run. Aside from that, the Caphras Stone drop rate here is not bad at all.

Why Mirumok Ruins is a Great Farming Spot

  • Valtarra Eclipsed Belt drops here.
  • 14.5% drop rate for Caphras Stone.
  • 339,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Start your rotation by going to the safe spot at the entrance to the Mirumok Ruins.
  • Once you have parked your mount, you can go to the mob area located on the far right of the map.
  • You can aggro mobs by simply approaching them. Wait for at least 12 seconds, and don’t attack the elite mob either. Wait for the first wave of mobs to appear before starting to kill them.
  • Each spot will spawn a total of 36 mobs equally divided into six waves.
  • Unkilled mobs will disappear 2 minutes after they spawn.


3. Manshaum Forest

Due to the massive rework done by Pearl Abyss on most Elvia maps, Manshaum Forest is now considered a Caphras Stone zone, and yes, you can totally agree with that, and me as well. This could serve as a good income source for 240 AP players who want to progress further in their gear enhancements while gaining some goodies along the way. This is highly recommended and definitely worth checking out.

Why Manshaum Forest is a Great Farming Spot

  • Narc Ear Accessory drops here.
  • A fair amount of Caphras Stone can be obtained per hour of grind.
  • 349,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • The ideal start for rotation in this zone is by heading on the north side of the node manager and slowly moving in a direction going southward of the area. 
  • As you head south, kill as many mobs as you can from one side. 
  • Make a turn back to the north from the zone's border edge and kill the other side of your previous route. 
  • You will eventually end up at the exact same location where you started. It is best if you have placed your tent and parked your mount in that location for an easy rinse and repeat cycle of the rotation.


2. Centaurus Herd

The Centaurus herd will never grow old and will appear from time to time for its quite broken benefits. Consider a zone that is very grindable for 240 AP or less while also providing very good trash loot for silver benefits that no other map can. Except for our number one on this list, of course. But if you really want to invest hard in the Centaurus Belt for your endgame build, then seek no further and grind here to your heart's content.

Why Centaurus Herd is a Great Farming Spot

  • Centaurus Belt drops here.
  • 379,400,000 silver average per hour.
  • Caphras Stones and Scrolls often drop here.

How it works

  • Just like any other straightforward spot, this zone features no complicated mechanics whatsoever.
  • Head to the area location and kill as many mobs as you can in a fast phase. With that, you will be efficiently grinding this zone.
  • Recommended AP: 190 and DP: 200.


1. Sherekhan (night)

And finally, at our number one spot, the very best spot to grind at 240 AP is the Sherekhan Necropolis during the night time. This is also the best place to spend your Agris points efficiently, which gives you a lot more reason to consider picking this place for your next long grinding session at 240 AP. The mechanics here are plain, simple, and easy to understand. Although you can only grind here at a specific time, it is still the best of all the zones available for 240 AP in terms of benefits and efficiency. Be sure to check this out, and I am sure that you will learn to love this zone as well.

Why Sherekhan (night) is a Great Farming Spot

  • Ancient Sherekhan’s Panacea drops here. A key ingredient for the Infinite HP Potion.
  • Orkinrad’s Belt drops here.
  • 388,200,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • During the night time, head to those stone towers in the area named Belcadas’s Tomb. Interact with it by pressing the "R" key or by clicking it. Each interaction costs 10 stamina.
  • Wait for it to summon a mob. It would take a bit while due to its mini animation.
  • Kill the spawned mob and move to another tower.
  • Rinse and repeat.
