He is located very close to the Storage Keeper. This is a Knowledge quest line that rewards the Helm XP crystal, when the full Knowledge category is completed.

      Knowledge Battle With Haley
      Get ready to do allot of running back and forth with much energy depletion! The quest line involves running back and forth between Haley, a note on a table nearby, and another NPC. Each quest will take 10 energy to guess at an answer to a question. The last quest will cost 40 energy.

      Knowledge Battle With Haley Quest Tips:

      • The table with the note is behind you, when you talk to the Storage Keeper.
      • You can use energy from Alts to finish the quest line.
      • You need to check the note every time. After answering the question, you get “quest completed”, but the note is part of the quest objective also.

Executive Producer Notes

Copied from the article “Working Towards a Comprehensive Black Desert Online” posted on 13 February 2019 15:00

Greetings Adventurers,

This is Jae-hee Kim, the Executive Producer in charge of development for Black Desert Online.

A whole month has already passed since the start of this new year.

As January was the opening month of 2019, we tried to introduce variety of new contents during the last month to make the journey even more enjoyable.

We have introduced countless updates during the past, yet the last couple of months were especially filled with various important patches.

We introduced new contents without rest including Bartali’s Adventure Log, War Hero, Dark Rift, Shadow Arena, Central Market, Privacy Mode, removal of weight for silver, decrease of the variety of loot dropped during the early stages, removal of the Node Connection requirement for trading fish, revealing the enhancement success rates, Devour, and Territory War which is currently under development. (Some of the contents are yet to be released in NA/EU)

I decided to present this Dev Note today as I believed there may be many Adventurers out there who’d like to learn more about the newly introduced contents and the intentions behind them.

Adventure Log

Requirement: Complete the Main Quest in Calpheon (Looking for Adventures), reach Lv.51 then summon Black Spirit.

How to proceed: Clear the mission written on the log, claim each completion reward and receive the next chapter from Black Spirit.

“How can we make adventures more meaningful, fun, and enjoyable with riddles for everyone?”

Previous quests are mostly repetitive and passive as they were intended to deliver the story and guide Adventurers as tutorials.

Early on, the many quests worked together to create different ways to play. However, these play patterns started to become standardized as time passed and the importance of completion rewards increased. This resulted in some quests getting abandoned entirely.

However, the Adventure Log was designed with the intention to add various in-game experiences. It was not only meant for the new Adventurers who just completed the main quests in Calpheon that are still learning the game but also experienced Adventurers. There also isn’t a time limit to allow Adventurers to complete it at their own pace.

The Adventure Log was added for Adventurers to go beyond the existing quests and repetitive tasks to take on new challenges and experiences through various contents. Complete each mission written in the logs and enjoy the small bonuses for characters to gain.

This will allow Adventurers to try something fresh and give them a new motivation by introducing a new challenge. Instead of focusing on the growth of characters only, Adventurers can explore places where they’ve never visited, enjoy different contents never attempted and discover new elements all over the world of Black Desert Online.

There are many ways Adventurers can enjoy Black Desert Online. The Adventure Log can be fun as it gives missions to complete and try many of these ways. For example, Adventurers can fish Grunts at Velia shore, but they can also go out to the ocean, or find a hotspot where seagulls are flying over it. There is the common way of obtaining Black Stones by visiting the Central Market and defeating monsters. Then again, Black Stones can also be exchanged for using Hunter’s Seals, received as quest rewards, obtained from various random boxes, crafted, or earned by playing Shadow Arena. There are so many ways Adventurers can choose to achieve their goals.

We designed Adventure Log to be cleared one after the other whenever Adventurers are able to instead of completing all the missions in one go. Therefore, some missions are easy to complete, and some require time and effort. More importantly, the rewards are applied to all characters within the same Family, which is a great advantage to have when growing new characters.

Are you having fun following Igor Bartali’s past adventures?

We hope our Adventurers enjoy the upcoming updates to the Adventure Log and the various elements within Black Desert Online.
