Display Settings Display Quality Anti-Alias Turn this off if you are using remastered. I highly suggest using your video card driver to force AA or FXAA SSAO Optional Display Filter I suggest choosing Depth of field over this unless you want to blur distant terrain. Faraway Objects Yes Depth of Field This now provides DOF during gameplay for remastered which is really neat Faraway NPC Detail Optional Hit Effects Optional Remove Snow Build-Up Optional Show Blood Optional Show Blood on Screen Optional Effect IMPORTANT!! Photo Filter set to "NONE" Gamma and Contrast set to "0" You may also try using your own settings but it is recommended to set as the above values before trying your own. I also suggest you try to increase your performance from this post here: https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/5padhe/ultimate_guide_for_fpsperformanceping_issues/ And for remastered users https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/99i1j1/trying_remastered_graphics_tweak_these_settings/

If you don't like the bloom you can just disable BloomsAndLensFlares.fx

You also didn't have to be rude about my character, it's only for people who are interested in it.

Noone cares about your character. Just reduce bloom.

The character I'm using is a mystic class and if you want the preset for her you can look it up with keyword "neko" or "cat" <3
