The hedgehog is a very popular pet in Black Desert Online but up to recently, could only be obtained by buying the Amerigo’s Welcome Package for €44,00. While the pack might come in handy for new players as it also contains 16 inventory slots and a valuepack, the more seasoned player often only is interested in getting their hands on the pet. Good news for them, because now you can get a hedgehog for € 9,99. Well, that is if you bought the game through the BDO website and not through Steam as there is no gift option for Steamplayers.
The hedgehog not only increases the amount of life skill experience you earn but also and more importantly, it increases the amount of items you collect with gathering – but also with hunting – by about 25%. No wonder it is a popular pet amoung gatherers and those who are looking to build one of the Epheria ships. Like the desert fox, the buffs don’t stack if you have two or more of the same pet out. But if you breed the hedgehog, the percentage of extra loot will increase. To get the hedgehog you’ll need to create a second account and gift yourself the game for €9,99.
