BDO Adventure Logs Overview

BDO Adventure Logs Overview

Log books in Black Desert Online are a way for players to gain permanent stats on all of their characters (aka family wide stats) for doing exploration focused tasks. There are a ton of log books in the game, but certain ones definitely take priority over others. Specifically, the ones that grant combat bonuses, as these are basically free ways to gain extra stats on your entire account outside of gearing up. This can assist with hitting AP/DP brackets, and give you a slight edge over opponents who haven’t completed these. You can open your log books by hitting escape, adventure, then adventure log bookshelf. You can then open the log book of choice and see your next task, as well as future tasks in your current chapter. When you complete the objective listed on the page, you’ll get a notification right below the bar that has your horse, house, workers, etc, and then you just open the log book, click the red highlighted area, and the stats will be added to your family!
