Black Desert Online - Herald's Journal Adventure Log Guide

Herald's is by far the toughest adventure log to complete in BDO, and this guide will hopefully make your life a whole lot easier!

8 min    Views

To start doing the tasks from Herald’s Journal Adventure Log, you need to be Level 58+, you must know NPC Rubin and complete the [Adventure Log] Herald’s Journal quest. If you fulfill any of these requirements, just talk with Black Spirit, and accept the Adventure Log: Herald’s Journal quest, from Quest > Main.

If you complete this book, you will get the following buffs in total:

  • Max Stamina +43 (Family-wide)
  • Max HP +5 (Family-wide)
  • Max Weight Limit +2LT
  • All DP +1 (Family-wide)
  • Valks Enhancement Chance +3 (Family-wide)
  • x1 Enchanted Scroll (+80)

No doubt this is a book that takes a lot of perseverance and not all tasks will succeed on the first try. Although I often have the feeling that I’m leaving everything here in … But in the end, we manage to make it, and let’s face it, it’s worth fighting through the entire book series because of the rewards.

The books will certainly take a few days to complete. I have gathered the most important information and requirements to make your job as easy as possible and as fast as possible. But be prepared, you will need a lot of perseverance here!

Herald’s Journal: Book 1

Since each mission goes on time, you have to go to the “I’m ready” text for NPCs separately for each mission, the countdown will only start after that, this will be the case for all quests. The first book is warm-up, with these we can already get used to what to expect in the future.

Herald’s Journal – 1st Book Rewards:

  • Max Stamina +11 (Family-wide)
  • Max HP +5 (Family-wide)

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 1

Goal: speak with 5 NPCs and get back to Rubin in time
Fast Method: A quick horse is essential here, and don’t hop off from your horse when you talk to NPCs (except Bartholomeo, here you should jump off the bridge). Visit the NPCs in the pre-planned order, I also attached a picture above. I had to restart this chapter so many times that by the time I succeeded, I already knew the route by experience, but it didn’t take time to use the NPC finder anyway. This circle will unfortunately burn in your brain … You have to get back to Rubin in time too.

Time Limit: 2 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 2

Goal: climb to the highest point of the Calpheon Tower
Fast Method: A quick horse is essential here too. Set an autopath to the Calpheon Tower, and climb to the highest point of the tower. In the pictures you will find all the necessary instructions, but remember that you have to hurry a lot. With a pegasus you can quickly finish your way back to Rubin if you just glide with it.

Time Limit: 5 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 3

Goal: talk with NPC Geranoa
Fast Method: it’s not a complicated part, just set up autopath for NPC Geranoa and hurry up. You have to get back to Rubin in time.

Time Limit: 1 min

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 4

Goal: talk to NPC Crio in Velia
Fast Method: the task is simple again. This really requires a fast horse, preferably with an IA + drift (+ S: IA, sprint) combo. This is the first chapter where you didn’t even have to go back to Rubin in time.

Time Limit: 6 mins

Herald’s Journal: Book 2

Do you hate it already, or not? Then the second book will definitely be your favorite.

Herald’s Journal – 2nd Book Rewards:

  • Max Weight Limit +2LT (Family-wide)
  • Max Stamina +12 (Family-wide)

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 1

Goal: catch 2 Sea Eels
Tips: Go fishing on Velia Beach, where all the other players are afk fishing, don’t worry that fishing resources: exhausted. Try to reduce your fishing time: use life spirit stone and fisher’s elixir. Maybe a triple-float fishing rod might come in handy. I did the quest on about 4 attempts, 2/2 catches were sea eels.

Time Limit: 10 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 2

Goal: play Bargain Game with Velia’s Trade Manager
Tips: Carry at least 1 fish in your inventory, rush to the Velia Trade Manager (NPC Bahar) and play the Bargain Game. You also have to get back to Crio within the time frame.

Time Limit: 1 min

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 3

Goal: Talk to the chief of Iliya Island (NPC Diega)
Tips: You can go with Griff from Velia or with your own boat. If you’re going by boat, I suggest a Cog, but I did it at the first try with Bartali Sailboat and Breezy Sail skill. Fortunately you don’t have to get back during this time.

Time Limit: 6 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 4

Goal:  Listen to Kunga’s tale
Tips: This distance can be done in a number of ways in a given time: either use Splat Fisher’s clothes or a boat, or use a pegasus to glide over the water for as long as you can. And at the opening of a cave you will find the Goal object.

Time Limit: 3 mins

Herald’s Journal: Book 3

There is no point in giving up here because it is nearing an end. In addition, we get the DP in this book. The whole third book will take place in the desert, so prepare with a compass and a fast desert vehicle (be it a unicorn for your own good). This book is about speed and travel, maybe I enjoyed this book the most.

Herald’s Journal – 3rd Book Rewards:

  • All DP +1 (Family-wide)
  • Max Stamina +20 (Family-wide)
  • x1 Enchanted Scroll (+80) – to obtain it, you need to talk to Black Spirit after completing Book 3

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 1

Goal: Kill x650 bandits in Gahaz Bandit’s Lair
Tips: Pick up the quest from Rafa, Gaha Bandit’s Lair Node Manager. Kill 650 monsters in Gahaz Bandit’s Lair. Can be done in a group but also alone, if you do it alone you have to do it quite dynamically. The quest must also be handed over to Rafa within the time frame.

Time Limit: 10 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 2

Goal: find Bert in Hystria Ruins
Tips: it is wise to look up the portals in advance and experience which one will get you to Hystria. A unicorn can be a great help in the time limit.

Time Limit: 5 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 3

Goal: talk with 5 Node Managers: Pilgrim’s Sanctum: Abstinence, Pilgrim’s Sanctum: Sincerity, Pilgrim’s Sanctum: Humility, Pilgrim’s Sanctum: Purity and Pilgrim’s Sanctum: Sharing node managers
Tips: A compass will definitely be needed, and a unicorn is a big help for speed. Pay attention to complete the quest with Pilgrim’s Sanctum: Fast node manager at the end.

Time Limit: 12 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 4

Goal: talk with 4 city manager at 5 region
Tips: go in line: Neruda Shen (Altinova), Igor Bartali (Velia), Crucio Domongatt (Heidel), and Herman Feresio (Calpheon). And in the end, the quest must be handed over to Rubin at Calpheon. A fast horse is essential for this.

Time Limit: 18 mins

Herald’s Journal: Book 4

And it’s almost over! We will no longer stop here. There will be tears and blood here too, but in the end, you won’t even remember it!

Herald’s Journal – 4th Book Rewards:

  • Valks Enhancement Chance +2 (Family-wide)
  • Valks’ Cry

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 1

Goal: deliver Rubin’s box to Milano Belucci, deliver Milano’s crate to Merv, and clean a chimney behind Merv
Tips: The maximum level of movement speed will be essential for this chapter. (P>Battle Stats>Movement Speed 5 level) If yours is a lower level, buy Swiftness stone in your shoes. Remember that after cleaning the chimney you have to rush back to Rubin to deliver the quest.

Time Limit: 4 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 2

Goal: kill x25 scarecrow with a matchlock
Tips: Keep an eye on all four corners where they can pop up. Shoot when you see a scarecrow. I made a fifth attempt … the good news is that you can start training again with the Rubin who appears here, but every restart costs 50 energy.

Time Limit: 3 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 3

Goal: tame a wild horse
Tips: Go to the place i marked in the picture and grab a wild horse. You also have to get back to Shamhain in time. What you’ll need: capturing rope and lump of raw sugar. There is a guide where I described step by step how to catch a wild horse if you might not know.

Time Limit: 5 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 4

Goal: solve puzzles with 3 NPCs
Tips: You will also need energy for the answers, and you also have to get back to Rubin within the time frame. Go to Gorgath first, he needs to reply to General chat: 37 or 62 or 105 or 206. Then go for Freharau in Glish, and pick the answer from the Chat options:  Trace of Death, Purified Water or Wise Man’s Blood. Then go to Velia and Visit Alustin, and pick the answer from the Chat options: Pilgrim Sanctum Pure, Basquean Ljurik or Curtis.

Time Limit: 9 mins

Herald’s Journal: Chapter 5

Goal: Cross the bridge as a Stoneback Crab following blue patterns
Tips: Ignore all the blue lights and routes, just walk along the right edge of the bridge, then after the barricades, simply turn to Rubin and complete the quest.

Time Limit: 3 mins

We did it! It took me several days to make. And my smile isn’t sincere either … I think this is the book that everyone stops for a while because they hate it and then continue anyway. It’s one of the biggest challenges in the books and without whom it wouldn’t have been possible: my T10 pegasus (Moonblaze) and my unicorn (Diamond). Thank you for coming!
