For a list of every task sorted by certain requirements, see Achievement Diary/All achievements.

The Desert Diary is a set of achievement diaries, released on 5 March 2015. Tasks within the Diary revolve around areas within the Kharidian Desert, such as Pollnivneach, Nardah and Sophanem.

Jarr's location

To complete all of the tasks, players will need the stats shown in the infobox to the right. Unless stated otherwise, temporary skill boosts can be used for all of the diary tasks.

Players looking to claim their rewards can do so from Jarr in the Shantay Pass. Note that players must complete a diary of a previous tier to claim the next tier's rewards; for example, players must do the easy and medium tasks in order to claim rewards from the hard tasks.
