Black Desert Online - Deve's Encyclopedia Adventure Log Guide
The second longest Adventure Log in BDO, Deve's Encyclopedia is very tricky to do without following an appropriate guide, so we made sure to explain each step thoroughly.
Deve’s Encyclopedia is one of the Adventure Logs in Black Desert Online, which award passive account-bound buffs, that are definitely worth investing your time into. While Deve’s is one of the worst time / reward logs, it will still award you with 1 precious AP (it’s sheet AP, meaning it contributes to your AP bracket and shows up in your stats), as well as a Desert Fox pet.
You can complete most of Deve’s Encyclopedia by simply buying / preordering items on the Central Market, but you can’t totally skip some running around, or crafting a few things that you can’t wait forever to buy.
If you have made quite some progress in your account, it will be “easy” to complete all 6 Deve books in a single day if you wanted to, if you are a newer player, you are going to have a harder time with some of the tasks. But rest assured, this guide will help you make sense of every single step, unlike all these helpful – but still outdated and low on info – Deve guides you can find elsewhere.
There is one requirement to be able to start doing Deve’s Encyclopedia, and that’s having Family Fame over 600. You can get that very easily by simply hitting level 60 (300 Combat Fame), and raising your Energy / Contribution Points to 150++ (300 Special Fame).
Let’s get started! I highly suggest you scan through all the books & item requirements, so you get a better estimate of what’s ahead of you, and maybe start preordering like crazy. 😁

Deve’s Encyclopedia Final Rewards
If you finish all 6 Deve’s Encyclopedia books, you will end up with the following permanent account rewards:
- +1 AP
- +3 Max Stamina
- +27 Max HP
- +2 LT Weight Limit
- 1 Crown Helmet for Male Classes OR 1 Tiara Helmet for Female Classes
- 1 Desert Fox Pet
Obviously, the most important reward is the additional AP you can get from Book 5.1 – which is obviously the most painful. The additional Pet will also come handy especially to newer players. I really disliked that you can only choose the Crown or Tiara for the cosmetic reward, it’s just a minor item and I find it silly you can’t have both in your account (you can choose between them no matter what’s your active class at the moment of completion).
How to Complete Deve’s Encyclopedia Tasks
All of the tasks, in all of the books, work exactly the same way.
You need to have a certain amount of specific items in your inventory, and then Chat with Deve, the Storage Keeper of Altinova.
We have added in each list, all the known items that you can use for every task. There are a few tasks that need only some specific items, while others are quite open-ended into which items you bring to Deve.

You will have to connect Florin with Calpheon, so put the materials needed in Calpheon’s storage, and use a Calpheon worker.

There is a 1% chance to drop the Soiled Ogre Ring, so this is definitely the most painful step of all Deve’s Encyclopedia – and it’s the one that awards the precious 1 AP. After you drop it, go to Western Guard Camp near Velia, and get an Ogre Excrement from Luke, the Trade Manager (requires Trade Apprentice 2). Meet Deve in Altinova when you have everything in your inventory (if you want to move fast with the Trade item, just put it on your horse).

You need to raise your Amity to 400 with Merv, the Tailor of Calpheon, then buy the Design from her. Then you need a Costume Mill Level 2 in order to craft the dress, along with 30 Flax Fabric & 7 Ruby (both easily buyable from the Central Market).

Book 6.4 | July 11 | 1 Friendship Item (+1 HP)
Goal: Have 1 Token of Friendship or Seal of Promise in your inventory.
Fast Method: Buy 1 Token of Friendship from the Central Market. If there are not any available, you can grind them in Cyclops Land near Longleaf Tree Forest in Calpheon. They also drop from the Mysterious Earring item you can buy from any Blacksmith, but it’s not really worth to spend so much money on this. Last but not least, you can do the Necklace of Sealed Magical Power repeatable quest in Calpheon, which awards you with 5 Seal of Promise.

However Lucky Sharp Tanning Knife is not always in stock, so you might have to craft it. You need a simple Tool Workshop Level 1 anywhere, and keep in mind that Lucky tools have a 10% chance to be created, so you will need to craft at least 10 Sharp Tanning Knives.
