[Top 10] BDO Best Grind Spots For Caphras

Best Black Desert Online Grind Spots For Caphras
Grinding caphras and then what? Just failing for PEN :(

Caphras Stones are certainly very vital if you want to progress your gear for Black Desert Online's endgame content. Enhancing just one Pen Boss Mainhand, for example, would cost you a fortune already. Ranging from 90 billion silver up to a staggering 100 billion silver for the required Caphras Stones for one single gear alone.

I'm sure you're wondering, or have already asked, if there's a way to avoid this amount by grinding for Caphras Stones instead of coughing up a large amount of silver. The answer is a big YES! I am here to help you today and will provide you with a tested and accurate data list for the top 10 best grind spots for caphras in Black Desert Online. Be sure to stick until the end of this guide, as this will greatly help you with your enhancement needs.


10. Gyfin Rhasia Temple

Let's kick it off by starting at number 10 with Gyfin Rhasia Temple. The zone may be on the lower side when it comes to Caphras Stone drop rate, but it is better than those zones that don't come up on our list. It is a party-recommended zone, so grinding here will never be boring, especially if you are farming with your friends.

Why Gyfin Rhasia Temple is a Great Farming Spot

  • 34 Caphras Stones average drop per hour.
  • Tungrad Belt and Krogdalo’s Origin Stone drops here.
  • 403,600,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Make sure to pop some Party Elixirs and Draughts.
  • Your DPS in the party should always prioritize killing the Gyfin Rhasia Statue of Earth first. This method will make your party’s grinding session much easier and more efficient.
  • Gyfin Rhasia Guards will pretty much be clustered around your party pullers, so killing them after taking down the statue is a very easy feat.


9. Sycraia Abyssal Ruins (Lower)

On number 9, we have the Sycraia Abyssal Ruins (Lower). This zone also provides you with a somewhat decent rate in terms of Caphras Stone drop rate, but there are a lot of goodies that can be obtained in this zone. The Sycraia Underwater Lower is also great because you can farm this solo just in case our number 10 spot on our list ain't your vibe. It's pretty much grindable even on a mid-ranged AP build.

Why Sycraia Abyssal Ruins (Lower) is a Great Farming Spot

  • 34 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Tungrad Ring plus some interesting loot can be obtained here.
  • 497,500,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Recommended AP: 289
  • There is a huge density of mobs in this area. You will be staying in one part of this dungeon for most of your grinding session. It's pretty much like running the Star’s End but without the towers and requires a bit of running here and there.
  • As long as you have the recommended AP, you can run this dungeon pretty easily yet very efficiently.


8. Jade Starlight Forest

Next is the icy field of Jade Starlight Forest. Not only does this zone drop Caphras Stone a bit more often than the previously mentioned grind spots, but it also bears the main crafting material, Flame of Frost. That item is sought after, especially by those players wanting the Labreska's Helmet. You could easily sell it for a bit of a fortune because a single piece of Flame of Frost costs around 1.8 billion silver.

Why Jade Starlight Forest is a Great Farming Spot

  • 36 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Flame of Frost drops here. Key ingredient for the Labreska’s Helmet.
  • 370,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • Make sure that you finish the questline within the region before you can start grinding here.
  • Making a rotation for this map is quite easy. Just pick 3 nearby spots, the ones with pillars and mobs. Just 3 spots are enough as they respawn pretty quickly, and one spot is quite hard to take down as well.
  • The mobs here don’t damage you that much, given that you passed the AP recommendation and have a decent DP. As long as you do not AFK here, you’ll be fine.


7. Murrowak’s Labyrinth

Digging into our number 7 spot. The Murrowak's Labyrinth is a mini-game like dungeon instance where you will enter along with 5 other players to run the entire instance. The zone will step up a bit on your Caphras Stone search as it does provide a higher drop rate than the previously mentioned. A single instance would run for about an hour and a half, sometimes less, depending on the players you joined with and how fast they could clear the mini and the elite mobs. It's definitely fun and enjoyable to play, with a lot of notable drops on the side and a bit higher drop rate for Caphras Stones.

Why Murrowak’s Labyrinth is a Great Farming Spot

  • 40 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Few notable drops such as Lightstones, Ancient Magic Crystal of Nature, Artifacts, and Heavenly Essence.
  • 278,400,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • This is a 6-man instance dungeon zone.
  • You kill all the mini mobs and the elite mobs along the way. The path is straightforward and there’s nothing complicated about the mechanics.
  • Once you're done killing all the normal mobs, the boss will spawn and kill it.
  • The best option you have after killing the boss is to change servers and, if you are lucky, you might end up joining a team that is currently doing the instance and have you on the same progress as with them. The boss will spawn faster for you because it is already half finished, or at least some of the parts are completed.


6. Tunkuta

I'm pretty sure you've already heard a lot about Tunkuta or Turo's spot with my other guides. It is because the zone really has a lot to offer to new and veteran players, and a good place to farm Caphras Stone is also one. Especially if you run this zone with an Agris and any loot scroll, you'll be filling up your inventory with a lot of Caphras Stone in no time. If you are RNG carried during your grind session, you might end up with a few Turo's Belts or even a rare drop of Flame of Despair.

Why Tunkuta is a Great Farming Spot

  • 42 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Flame of Despair drops here. Crafting material for the Fallen God’s Armor. It has a value of 1.7 billion silvers per piece.
  • Turo’s Belt drops here as well.
  • 445,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • You should form a party of 2 members here, as it is the ideal way of running this spot.
  • There are five ideal ways to grind this spot. Regardless of what kind of rotation you use, you will pretty much end up with the same trash loot rate as the other rotations available.
  • Actually, this is a very straightforward map with rotations you can make on the fly as soon as you arrive in Tunkuta. There are no complicated mechanics, and you can even go the old way of just killing everything that mobs. Essentially, your aim is to be mobile as much as possible and kill as many as possible.


5. Manshaum Forest

At number 5, is the Manshaum Forest. The Caphras Stone drop rate may seem the same as with the Tunkuta, but this zone is a solo grind spot. You do not need to invite someone to join you for a grind, and it will still provide you with the same benefits in terms of Caphras Stones while doing it solo. You can also get the chance to get the material needed for the Odore's Spirit Essence, or more commonly known as the infinite MP potions, in case you still don't own one.

Why Manshaum Forest is a Great Farming Spot

  • 42 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Ancient Narc’s Crimson Tear drops here. One of the key ingredients for the Infinite MP potion.
  • Narc Ear Accessory drops here as well.
  • 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.


4. Thornwood Forest

Stepping it up a bit in your search for a better Caphras Stone drop rate is the Thornwood Forest at number 4. Not only is this zone good for XP farming, but due to the recent changes made by Pear Abyss to the entire zone's loot rate, this is now a very significant place to farm Caphras Stones in Black Desert Online's up-to-date meta. The zone doesn't require you to have massive gears for you to farm here efficiently, making mid-game progress easier for most of the players.

Why Thornwood Forest is a Great Farming Spot

  • 44 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Ominous Ring and Ah’krad drop here at a pretty decent rate.
  • 360,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • There are currently five effective grinding routes for this zone, named the river route, the forest route, the bridge route, the castle entrance route, and the courtyard route.
  • The wide range of options on how to do grinding on this map only shows that, regardless of whether some players contest you with farming, you can easily pick another route that is not contested.
  • It's pretty much straightforward: kill everything you see on your path and repeat from the starting point of your route.
  • Always keep an eye out for the black bottle for additional XP gains as it spawns mobs and a boss.


3. Traitor’s Graveyard

Coming up next is the Traitor's Graveyard, or Betrayer's Cemetery, or whatever you want to call it. It does step up to the game of farming Caphras Stones and is a very good place to consider, especially right now. There are only a few players discovering that the Caphras Stone drop rate here is pretty massive despite its low AP recommendation, and the zone is actually meant for new players who have just started playing BDO. It doesn't have any notable item drops or trash loot for silver average because the highest drop rate here is actually Caphras Stone.

Why Traitor’s Graveyard is a Great Farming Spot

  • 47 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Witch’s Earring drops here, in case you care.
  • Very low AP recommendation with very easy rotation cycles.

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.


2. Gyfin Rhasia Underground

The Gyfin Rhasia Underground, in the runner-up spot, will definitely up the ante for your Caphras Stone farming. Farming for Caphras Stone in this zone is fairly simple if you have the recommended AP to run the zone, especially if you run it with Agris and a loot scroll. You might find the complicated mechanics of this zone difficult and maybe fend you away from grinding on this spot, but once you see how much Caphras Stone you can get per hour, it will pull you in like a strong magnet for sure.

Why Gyfin Rhasia Underground is a Great Farming Spot

  • 58 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • Best place to obtain Tungrad Belt and Tungrad Necklace.
  • 498,000,000 silver average per hour.

How it works

  • There are more than 10 towers in the zone, and all you have to do first is find 2 of them, which are near each other. Basically, the choice will vary based on the player’s preference. As long as you can secure 2 towers that are near and comfortable for you to go back and forth as your grinding rotations, that will be great.
  • You need to remember this always, as this mechanic is vital for your efficient XP grinding. There will be 3 sets of elites per tower spot, not only categorized by their appearance and abilities but also categorized by color coding that represents the buffs you will get from them.
  • Blue - Gyfin Rhasia Guard the one with shield and sword  [Resolve]
  • Purple - Gyfin Rhasia Flamen the slender magic caster  [Denial]
  • Red - Gyfin Rhasia Crusher the big guy with a mace [Anger]
  • These buffs will give you some sort of color-coded buff with which you will gain a damage boost against the elite of matching color with the buff that you have. Simply put, the order is Blue > Purple > Red > Blue. For example, if you kill the Blue Elite-Gyfin Rhasia Guard, this will then give you the purple-colored buffs(remember the order?) which will grant you a damage boost against denial monsters, and that includes the Gyfin Rhasia Flamen, the purple elite. In short, your first elite kill will be harder since you don’t have any damage boost buffs, so I suggest killing first which of those 3 elites you are most comfortable killing without buffs, and then working your way up with the color matching buffs to gain the advantage of these damage boosts. Or have it in the standard order: kill the guard first, then the flamen, and last the crusher.
  • To maximize your XP gains, keep an eye out for the despair mobs. These mobs respawn in exactly the same locations within any tower spot. Killing them will benefit your XP gains as it will let the tower spawn more mobs for 8 minutes. The spawn rate of these despair mobs depends on how fast you kill those 3 elite mobs.
  • Another interesting mechanic of this zone is the spawning of "The Butcher" or Butcher of Gyfin Rhasia, which most players say its spawn rate or appearance is heavily influenced by your current drop rate buffs. When the butcher spawns, all three groups of the elite mobs of the tower will freeze. They won’t attack and will not move until the butcher is slain. Once you are finished, all three elite mobs will wake up and attack you instantly, and you will get the butcher buff (yellow color-coded), which will make the other 3 color-coded elites very squishy with your buffs. Despite the butcher’s buffs being the strongest amongst buffs you may get while grinding, not paying attention right after the butcher was killed proves to be very fatal.
  • The last mechanic of this zone you should know about is the enraged mode of the 3 elite mob groups. It does rarely happen in grinding sessions, but when it does, you will probably be dying or plain dead as the 3 elite mob groups will instantaneously attack you, even without the butcher being slain.


1. Olun’s Valley

Finally, the spot that will give you the most Caphras Stones for your grinding is Olun's Valley. The best and technically proven and tested spot for Caphras Stone farming. Although you cannot run this solo since it is a party zone, but hey, wouldn't it be less boring if you grinded this place along with your friends in BDO and simply enjoyed a Caphras Stone grinding spree for long sessions? Additionally, grinding this location may provide you with the opportunity to craft La'Orzeca armor, as the crafting material for that item frequently drops here. Run this zone along with your Agris and loot scrolls and see your inventory get filled by Caphras Stone in no time.

Why Olun’s Valley is a Great Farming Spot

  • 70 Caphras Stones average per hour.
  • La’Orzeca armor’s craft material drops here.
  • 390,000,000 silver average per hour.
  • This is one of the most efficient zones to use your Agris.

How it works

  • This is a party zone. Please keep that in mind.
  • Make sure that you will invite party members or join a party that at least knows how to pre-pull in this area. Once you get used to the area, pre-pulling or even making a double pull will be easier for you.
  • Having a Shai class in your party is a must-have. This is not optional and not negotiable. Trust me, it will be much easier with a Shai alongside your grind.
  • It would be very advisable to just focus on the big golem and skip those small golems, as those small mobs do not have any significant loot to drop. So don't waste too much time. Just burst the big golem to death and move on to the next one.
