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

The Kandarin Diary is a set of achievement diaries whose tasks revolve around areas in and near the northern part of Kandarin, such as Seers' Village, Catherby and the Barbarian Outpost.

Location of The 'Wedge'.

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 The 'Wedge' outside Camelot by the castle entrance. 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.
