If you are at that point where you need to go in the desert, be sure to bring plenty of shovels. There are quite a few quests where you need to dig in the desert and very few places to find shovels. You can not buy shovels at the marketplace. You need to look for Material Vendors in the various cities.
In Heidel: Flaviano
In Tarif: Eren Ross
In Altinova: Lashir
In Rock Post: Gavid
In Sands Grain Bazaar: Kulahuth
In Shakatu: Arenda
In Valencia: Purajin
I usually leave shovels, compass, water, and Star Anise Tea in the storage at Shakatu, Sands Grain and Valencia.
There are more places to buy shovels – I’m just listing a few on the way to and from the desert. Also, when I go into the desert, I always have 50 or more shovels in my inventory.
Quest 18: An Exhausting Situation
When you reach Maghed and give him 2 gold bars. He is going to give you a new quest.
Basically, you will need to run around and kill a few Gahaz bandits and go back to Maghed.
Quest 19: Obtain Golden Desert Coin.
This will send you in the desert again – so you will need your shovels and compass.
You will need to travel pretty far in the desert (where it’s marked on the map) and dig up some coins.
Center yourself exactly in the middle of the mini map quest circle. Keep digging there and you will get 5 coins.
You won’t get a coin each time but keep digging there.
Once you find the 5 coins, ride back to Valencia and talk to Afuara.
Hand over the 5 coins to him. He won’t give you the next quest.
20: For God’s Sake!
The Black Spirit will be pissed you handed coins over to that troll and call you stupid.
He will tell you to go talk to Zobadi. Just do it and let’s get this questline over.
Once, you meet Zobadi in Valencia, he will give you yet another quest.
Go steal a storage key from Afuara (F6) and go to Arehaza – which is the town to the east of Valencia.
21 Quest: The Same Method
Once you speak to the storage keeper – the Black Spirit will give you a quest.
Go back to Valencia and find King Sahazad
Quest 14th: Moving Ahead
I think out of all the quests, this one was the most challenging in the beginning. You have to dig in the circle to find a quest item but the thing was that you actually had to be outside of the circle to find it. See pictures.
You are just a smudge just outside of the mini map circle – facing these two rocks. (Not too close to them and at this angle)
Zobadi is behind you – The man by the white horse. As you can see – you are in front of him..near these two rocks.
You might have to dig a few times and adjust yourself at the right angle. Remember, if you avie is inside the yellow circle on the mini map – you need to move it outside just a tad.
Black Desert has never fixed this quest in the years I have been playing..no idea why.
Now, you need to go back to Valencia and talk to Afuaru to get the next quest.
Quest 15: Memories of Eliza.
You need to go talk to Tatar. He is the drunk down by the lake and you need to steal a key from him to open the chest after you talk to him.
This will take you several times and you will be amazed how much useless shit he has in his robe.
Once, you have the key, open up your inventory and align the box and the key together to open it.
Then go hand the diamond/chest to afuara.
Quest 16: Rabam’s Storage Key
You just need to steal a key from Rabam in the training area and go give it to the storage keep, Ramanit.
She will then give you a journal to give to Afuara.
Quest 17: Gold Bar Required
Bring 20G of gold bars and travel back to the Gahaz Bandits. It’s in BFE.

7th Quest that you get from Afuara is: Grave Robber’s First Steps.
You will need to go on your horse/camel into the desert where it’s marked on the map.
It’s a good idea to have a compass on you. You can buy compass parts on the marketplace.
You need 3 parts and attach them together to get the compass.
Make sure to have your shovels. How many? That is up to you. If you are new to this quest, I would bring at least 50.
You can find shovels at a materials vendor in Valencia.
Find Afuara’s Flag for the next quest.
The 8th quest: Find a luxurious decorative necklace.
This sounds harder than what it is. I literally only used one shovel and you can see how far away I am from the flag.
Once you find the necklace, drag your happy ass back to Valencia and hand over the necklace to Afuara.
9th Quest: Second Suggestion. Find Zobadi and speak to him. Go back to Afuara. (Because that’s how gossip works)
10th Quest: Zobadi’s Information
You will need to go to a temple just outside of Valencia city.
You talk to this kid and he tells you basically “Z” is a big ass crook and you move on to the next quest.
You jump back on your horse and ride back to Valencia to find that bastard. (because you probably don’t have anything better to do)
Of course, he’s missing. What an ahole!
12th Quest: Tracking Zobadi……because why not.
Right by the sign, is all of Zobadi’s friends. They are all pretty much useless when it comes to information.
Pro Tip Talk to the midget first.
You don’t need the other two friends quest. Just the midget one.
13th Quest: Tracking Missing Zobadi
You are going further out in the desert. Bring your compass and your shovels.
You will find Zobadi playing with rocks in the desert and not even the good kind. Click him for the next quest.
To be continued……
I know many people are having trouble with this questline and since I’m having to re-do it with my season server character; I am going to post it here.
What you will need for this quest line because you will be in the desert: Compass, Shovels, Water, Star Anise Tea (if in the desert at night), horse or camel and your weapons. (At bare minimum)
You obtain this quest thru the Black Spirit and you will need to find “Afuaru” for the first quest: Valencia Grave Robber.
Second quest is relatively simple – Steal a book from the Royal Palace. Quest: Finding Valencia’s Treasures.
Just on your navigation and just go straight to the book.
Third quest: Afuaru’s Hobby’s. He wants you to steal from three people marked on the map. In order to steal, you need to stand behind them and when the circle menu appears, hit F6.
Sometimes, it takes multiple times for you to steal the item you need. If you fail, keep trying.
Bring the items back to Afuaru.
Afuaru being the weirdo he is, now wants you to give those items to 3 other people marked on the map.
Go to each person and hit chat and then go back to Afuaru when you are done.
Quest: Give me first, then we can talk.
Next quest: Now that you can read. Use navigation and go read the book. Coming back to Afuaru.
Quest: Grave of a King. You will need to hop on your horse or camel and go northeast to Valencia castle.
It’s not very far. You will see three guys outside of Valencia Castle. Go inside and follow the long path to where you are underground.
You will see this stone ruin thing in the middle of the room. The circle beside it – go in the middle and use the tool that Afuara gave you.
A strange creature will appear and you will have to kill it. (It’s not hard to kill)
Go all the way back up to the top, get on your horse or camel and go to Valencia and see Afuara again.
To be continued…..
If you are on your way to discover Valencia City for the first time, you will probably run into this quest before you get there.
In this quest, you will need to discover Ibellab Oasis that is located in the desert. You will have to find some travelers located right outside of Gahaz Bandits Lair.
(See Map Below)
When you reach these three travelers, be sure you are still on your horse because once you talk to one of them, they take off to Ibellab Oasis. Just “R” to chat to one of them and just follow the one to the Oasis. (You don’t need to chat to all three)
Things you will need when you are in the desert – so prepare before you go:
- Water (Put the water on your hot bar)
- Star Anise Tea (To warm your body up at night)
- Compass (There are 3 parts to a compass – you can buy the parts off the marketplace then put together)
- Some type of ride (Horse or a Camel)
- Shovels (For quests later down the road)
