Do i have to find a jeweler or something to sell the gold pocketwatches and rings I have?

Take things like that to a fence, and large skins can be sold to a butcher or the trapper.

So is there no "tip your hat" emoji to purchase or am I just missing it? This seems like an oversight.

It's an unlock in the Trader role, costs $200 and is totally worth it.

It's supposed to be on sale for 10 gold, don't know how long that lasts. Do dailies and find somebody you can tag along with on bounties. PvP also gives a bit of gold if you do well.

pvp is real drat fun with a posse all on comms, we were talking about starting it up in the discord

edit: as for earning gold, make sure you keep your daily streak up! even getting the first multiplier at 7 days is a huge help, it bumps you up to .3 gold per daily, which if you do all 7 and a couple of bounties (join goons, the only thing you miss out on without having the license is the extra Bounty Hunter XP) or pvp matches can easily net you 4 gold a day.

Reassisted Retrogression

My tip for gold usage is to try not to spend it on cosmetics unless you have to. I find that it's way easier to earn the cash required than to earn more gold. I've used my gold almost exclusively on role unlocks and outlaw passes. I've unlocked all of them at this point and still have 65 gold in reserve. I've also never completed a full week of dailies.

Though I don't go crazy with the wardrobe options so this may not be applicable to all cowpokes.

Dang I gotta get some more rank so I can get the metal detector.

I had a funny situation where I was heading to a place in the desert and saw another guy ahead of me. I assumed he knew where the item was and ran into a house so I followed him in and took a double barreled shotgun blast to the face. Guess he thought I was going to try and kill him as it turned out the collectible was outside on a wagon.

Probably the only time I've felt like getting randomly killed by another player was justified.

It's such a shame the servers are such a fickle beast because this game is so much more fun as a game online where there's an actual progression.

I got my head blown off once when I was riding too close to someoneís trader wagon shipment. I honestly wasnít there to cause trouble, my route just happened to cross theirs, but hey, I get it

Pretty sure they one-shotted me in defensive mode too, so fair play

As CapnBeeb said, to the Fence you go. Minor spoiler: only sell stuff you have multiples of, and save at least one of any valuable item - some can be used for crafting talismans and trinkets (buff items), and some can be given to other folks for various reasons.

Animal skins on the horse come up in a different inventory window at the butcher/trapper/Pearson - it's mixed in with all the meat and carcasses, and buying an improved saddlebag (Stables have to be unlocked) will allow you to carry more *skins*. You're still stuck with one big items (large-animal hide or medium/large carcass on horsebutt and two "saddlebag" carcasses. (Anything that won't fit in your satchel, but doesn't flop over your shoulder, can be hung off the saddle in front of you stirrups on either side.)(Remember to recover all external cargo after horse crashes.)

Final moose has been eliminated - Barrow Lagoon, Potent Herbivore Bait x3, Rolling Block with Express ammo. Four save reloads. poo poo like eight elk/deer/bighorns and a couple horses in one cluster, probably scared off the target.

Chapter Six is really loving depressing. Strauss collections, fallout from previous loansharkery, fallout from the last bank job... still have Dutch's mine mission and *finally* the Legendary Bullgator at some point. Met the Veteran and his rear end in a top hat horse, so there's that. :3

Pissed away more than eight grand buying out catalogs. Full sets of all the clothing wasn't the killer, it was full sets of all the horse clothes. But, now I have stirrups... been running a Trapper saddle since forever, if I'd bought the right stock saddle and stirrups I could have aced some of those horse-speedrun challenges much easier.

Managed to lose the riverboat gambler fancy suit because I removed it from the horse - it's actually only stored there, and if you pull it, it's gone forever. Kinda wanted to wear it with the pig mask.

The cycle stuff is mainly from before the most recent patch and doesn't really matter, the map should show you everything that is currently up. The collectibles respawn and change location every day at 7 PM EST

Yeah, cycles swapped from 3 cycles for all drops to each type of drop (Coins/Flowers/Eggs etc) having at least 6 cycles that rotate independently from each other.

I guess I screwed myself out of selling them as sets though, how much more do you get when you can sell these things as a complete set?

It's not a big deal. As said, it's roughly around 5K or so once you have all the Collector upgrades (shovel and metal detector). I hold onto two of every collectible and sell the rest whenever I run into Nazar. You can hit the limit on some of those collectibles pretty quickly (goose and loon eggs for instance). They still sell for a good amount individually.

In anticipation of folks getting the game for the holidays, I decided to put together a starter guide on the PC Discord. It is full of many words but it's a collection of questions that get asked a lot, tips I wish I knew when I started, and suggestions to get a head start in multiplayer. Here's a brand new invite link for the PC Discord where a few of us are planning to do newbie only trader runs so you can get a fat sum of cash. https://discord.gg/gvtTTnw

If you have the lovely hunting wagon you can also store carcasses between sessions. I usually summon the wagon, load it up with carcasses then dismiss it and resummon my horse to ride back to camp. Assuming any animals actually spawned in your session.

This is absolutely the best way to use the wagon. As a carcass bank. Summon it when you have a couple of decent ones to save for later, store and dismiss.

Apparently riding in your hunting wagon makes animals even less likely to spawn in near you.

If you are having animal spawn issues, load up a legendary bounty, get five 3 star carcasses saved in your hunting wagon then back out to your camp. Rinse and repeat.

i don't seem to get the majority of plague problems everyone rags about.

I literally run over animals going between any two points; like an endless supplies of critters, herds of deer/elk; never more than like 20 seconds without seeing something.

Disconnects happen, but ime it's only like once or twice out of 3-4 days of playing. Reconnect and then it's good to go again.

Not saying that it's not happening to others, but grateful that i seem to slip through the cracks for most of that BS.

I'm more likely to have to change sessions because of a cheater blowing me up repeatedly than a random disconnect the last couple weeks or so, but that is fairly anecdotal.

I can use the main menu to spawn into camp pretty reliably. I haven't actually tried moving it (Gaptooth Ridge ftw). One time Cripps packed it up for no reason but I was able to get it back no problems.

Since the snow I've not used it a lot though, could just be getting lucky.

Fences are: Valentine Ranch, Rhodes Trailer Park, St Denis Market (near the Trapper) and out on a pier at Van Horn. Dunno about south of the Montana, haven't gotten much of anything done there that wasn't "getting shot at by a fuckload of laws/bounty killers".

If you're hatshotting, just drop your aim a smidge. Unless it's some autoaim thing. I can reliably hatshot either in realtime or Deadeye, myself, mostly with handguns at medium-to-short range.

Still can't get three disarms going in one magdump, however.
