Chenga – Sherekhan Tome of Wisdom

The Adventurer’s Tome can be upgraded through a questline that begins with the quest, Hoom’s Song, given by Aljal who is stationed on Macalod Hill in Drieghan. Through a series of riddle-laden quests, you can obtain the Chenga Tome, which adds 30%  to Combat EXP obtained through quests that reward Combat EXP. This is an excellent way to level if you are tired of grinding and is faster than grinding at later levels. At level 60, each non repeatable quest that rewards Combat EXP will give you approximatly 1.3% of your level. Besides the +20% Prognyl Silver Bar Gain, the Chenga Tome also increases Vision Range +150m.

Important Notes regarding the Chenga Tome questline:

  • At least 1 character in your family must be level 53+ 
  • Black Spirit’s Gift (Adventurer’s Tome): after reaching level 53, the Black Spirit will give you a quest called, Black Spirit’s Gift (Adventurer’s Tome) . Complete that quest to receive the Adventurer’s Tome, then the rest of your lower level characters should be able to access the quest also to get an Adventurer’s Tome. You do not need to be level 53+ to do the Chenga Tome questline. You can complete it on a secondary character who is lower level. I completed it on my level 30 Ranger. The Chenga Tome is giveable to other characters in your family.
  • At least 170 usable energy to complete the entire questline: several riddles during the questline will require you to spend energy to hand in an answer and gain knowledge on that subject. If your character does not have that big of an energy pool, bring energy pots which can be purchased off the marketplace. If you make mistakes and give the wrong answer you will end up needing more energy, so be sure to give the correct answer and have extra energy or energy pots on hand in case of mistakes. After taking your first character through the questline, your other characters will not need any energy to complete the questline as the quests which required energy the first time through will auto complete.
  • Progress can be tracked through the Quest Log: (O key then Suggested tab.) [Lvl 53] The Adventurer’s Tome Regarding the Legend of Chenga. There are a total of 22 quests. If your character is lvl 53+, your progress can be tracked through the Quest Log. However, lower level characters will not be able to see the Chenga Tome questline in their Quest Log and will need to find Aljai on Macalod Hill to start the questline.
  • Chenga Tome is not replaceable once destroyed: the Chenga Tome cannot be easily replaced if you destroy it like the Adventurer’s Tome.  To get another you would need to complete the Chenga Tome questline on another character.
