      – This adventure log consists of 3 volumes, with 5 chapters per volume for a total of 15 chapters altogether.

      – You can use Fughar’s Secret Book, a secret text of the Crow Merchants Guild, to gain a large amount of Contribution EXP.

      ‘Contribution Points (CP) are an absolute must to fully enjoy the various, deep content of Black Desert. However, to attain a decent amount of CP requires a large investment of time, and many novice adventurers may feel daunted by this prospect when playing Black Desert for the first time. To address this issue, we added “Fughar’s Times of Success” as the 12th adventure log. By following the footsteps of Fughar, who made a name for himself with his own two bare hands, you will find that you’ve accrued quite the Contribution EXP upon completing this log.
