Adventure Log

Last Edited on : Mar 7, 2023, 14:16 (UTC)

During your journey throughout the world of Black Desert you’ll encounter many characters with their own problems and dreams. In some cases, these will have been written down into books. 
When you find yourself with such a case, you can retrace the steps the person took in the past, or carry out their dream, and receive rewards in return.


Once you unlock / obtain such a book, it will be added to your adventure log bookshelf.
You can access the Adventure Log window through the main menu (hotkey: Esc) → Adventure (F5) → Adventure Log Bookshelf.



The adventure log bookshelf is a family-based feature where you can follow and rediscover various stories within the game through quests recorded in each book chapter. You can obtain great rewards every time you complete said quests.


As you move through each volume and shelf, you can obtain additional AP, DP, HP, stamina, weight limit, and other stats that will be applied to all characters in your family. This content can also increase the maximum amount of Agris fever points, which increases the amount of certain loot from monster zones and gathering, and Valks' cry that can be used to enhance equipment.


As such, we highly recommend unlocking and completing all the adventure logs that are available.



◈ The Basics 

The adventure log bookshelf is divided into main themes, and each one contains one or more adventure logs. Within these you can find several volumes (books) that correspond to the log. Finally, each book will contain several pages with individual rewards for completing them.For example, within the Crow Merchants’ Records theme you will find the Caphras’ Record adventure log, which consists of four volumes. Each book consists of several pages, and completing them individually will reward you Caphras stones. Upon completing a volume, the next one will be unlocked.


To complete the individual pages (quests) of a book, you need to carry out the task for that page.
The tasks asked of you in these adventure logs are varied. From completing other questlines, carrying out certain activities such as defeating monsters, doing a specific life skill activity, or exploring the world, to talking with NPCs and giving them certain items, and more.


At first, you will see the Reward button at the bottom of the page, where the reward is shown, appear in gray (①). Upon completing the page’s objective, it will glow red and a checkmark will be added to the page’s goal above it (②). Once this happens, press the button. The button’s borders will turn red, and the page will receive a completion stamp (③).



The rewards will be received the moment you press the button. If they’re items, they will be found in your character’s inventory. If they’re stats, they will be automatically applied to your family.


It is important to know that you cannot proceed with each adventure log right away, as they are unlocked once certain conditions are met. Below is a table that shows the adventure logs available, and the necessary conditions to unlock & proceed with them.
