How to increase weight limit

Introduction

Each character has a weight limit and once you are over 100% weight, you will start to move slower. It’s important to note that weight limit is not shared across your characters and is completely seperate, so you will have to increase the weight limit of each one. There are various ways to increase your character’s weight limit, such as using certain gear, eating certain foods, leveling your characters strength, buying weight limit, or using other items. There is no cap to the maximum weight limit but the highest you can get currently (using food, gear, etc.) is just over 3,500LT.

Some other items worth noting is Seaweed, which can be gathered underwater and will give you some strength EXP and Spirit Essence of Earth which can be consumed for a small amount of Strenght EXP. There is also juice you can buy from the guild store called Sour Green Grape Juice and a version of the juice is often given out during game events. All of these items will give you EXP towards your characters strength.

The Adventure log journals also increase weight limit of all characters on your account once completed as well as lots of other great rewards.



Increasing your Weight Limit with Gear

Most belts in the game will increase your maximum weight limit. The Basilisk’s Belt for example, which is one of the most common belts for PVE/PVP, gives +80LT.

If you are a lifeskiller that requires a lot of weight, you can invest in the Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes. These must be crafted using a Costume Mill.

ITEM MOVEMENT SPEED WEIGHT LIMIT TRADING XP
Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes +1 +100LT
Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes +1 +1 +150LT +10%
Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes +2 +2 +200LT +15%
Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes +3 +2 +250LT +20%
Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes +4 +3 +300LT +25%
Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes +5 +4 +400LT +40%

Other items worth mentioning, are the Zereth and Hercules’ Might armor pieces. Usually players will use the Zereth Armor and then the helmet, gloves and shoes from the Hercules’ Might set for a total of +250LT. This is a much cheaper option than using the Silver Embroidered Trader’s Clothes. You can also add crystals to the gear such as the Ancient Magic Crystal – Cobelinus to increase your maximum weight limit. For the accessories, you can use the Treant Spirit’s Whisper set, but you have to grind for these yourself.

Using trade packs (leveling your strength)

Our final method for increasing weight limit is to carry trade packs. This method does take a long time but you can get a lot of additional carry weight for a small price. To begin you will need to buy a trade pack from the “Trade Administrator” by going up to them, pressing “R” then “Commerce”.

You only need to buy one trade pack, so buy the cheapest trade pack from the trade administrator. If your trading level is low you can only buy trade packs from Velia, Olvia or Hidel. Once you have your trade pack, you will get strength experience every 10 seconds while you move.

Auto-run (afk leveling)

Black Desert offers a unique feature where you could create an infinite loop. In this example I am on horseback, but infinite loops can be used for all mounts and walking. Begin by opening your interactive world map (M), hold the “Alt” key and right-click the first point of the loop. Next, whilst still holding the “Alt” key, add other points to create a journey. End the loop by placing your mouse over the starter position (where you are currently), the path should turn green and you can now press “Alt” and right-click to end the loop. Close the map again by pressing “M” the hold “T” to auto-run.

If you are using this method to afk mount level you can set it up so your horse automatically eats carrots when the horses endurance reaches zero. To do this, check the box under your horses health and endurance bars.

Bandits

If you do move out of town be careful of bandits along the roads as they will attack you. Bandits can be seen on the map with this icon:

During my trip from Heidel to Calpheon, I ran into 2 packs of bandits so do not go afk if you are going to move out of a safe zone or at least make sure there are no bandits along the route.

 

This is a long process but currently it is one of the only ways to increase your weight limit. Once you are finished, you can drop the trade pack out of your inventory, or sell it to a different “Trade Administrator” than where you bought it from. Selling the trade pack will also increase your trading level. Your strength level can currently go as high as 55.

    Being at less than 100% weight, with a single trade pack, gave me strength experience at a comparable rate then when I was above 100%.

    While walking with 2 trade packs in my inventory, I’m getting an experience increase every 60ish seconds instead of 10 seconds. At Strength level 1, 109 weight%, NA version.

    Does anyone know what the weight limit cap is?
