This set of tasks all relate to searching around for some sort of object. There are a whole ton of collectables in this game, some of which are more difficult to find than others. Information on the location of all of these is below in the appropriate section, organized by which appears first in the list on your Total Completion tab.
These can be anything, really, and if you see something weird or something that stands out a bit, walk or ride over to it because there is a chance it is one of these points of interest. If it is, when you get close you can inspect it, and the Arthur will draw it in his notebook. There isn't much to it than that, and all you need to do for 100% completion is to document any one of these.
Southeast of Rhodes.
|Description||This church is to the southeast of Rhodes. You'll find this to the east of Braithwaite Manor, just past an abandoned battlefield (which also happens to be a point of interest). This is a hideout for the Lemoyne Raiders, so you'll need to clear them out before you can inspect the church.|
|Abandoned Trading Post|
Far northeast corner. It is almost directly west of the Brandywine Drop in Roanoke Valley.
|Description||This is pretty much exactly what the description says. It is an abandoned trading post, and the collapsing structure isn't much to look at. Go inside, though, to find a cigarette card and a hidden stash under one of the floorboards containing $15. Feel free to use the bedroll to sleep in as well if you want.|
Far north of the middle of the New Hanover region. It is northeast of Valentine and Fort Wallace, right along the northern part of the Dakota River. It is just north of Bacchus Station and Bacchus Bridge, but you must be down right next to the river. The person you're looking for is right on the eastern shore of the river, just slightly above where the "S" in Bacchus Bridge is.
|Description||There is another corpse here. But this is an extra special corpse, because it is stuffed in a barrel. The barrel stands out on the beach so it is easy to find. Arthur seems kind of sad about it if you actually read his notebook entry.|
Southeast of Rhodes.
|Description||If you ride southeast of Rhodes, you'll find an abandoned battlefield that is to the east of Braithwaite Manor. It is fairly large and pretty easy to identify because of all the knee high walls that serve as trenches. Walk into the middle of it and inspect it to add it to your notebook.|
Near the southwest corner. It is just west of Braithwaite Manor, along the waterfront.
|Description||There is an outhouse hidden amongst some trees that is just south of some buildings where it looks like the workers of Braithwaite Manor live. You can hear a woman crying for help and babbling incoherently once you get close. If you peek inside, the woman will try to grab you. After this, you will be able to inspect it but you have to do this first otherwise you won't be able to.|
Just to the northwest of camp, and directly west of the "N" in the New Hanover label on the map.
|Description||This is quite close to your starting position and you can ride down here within thirty seconds or so. There will be a large burned out area of the forest. Simply walk towards the middle of it and inspect it.|
Far northwest corner of the region. It is slightly south of the Little Creek River, right around the point where the river takes a very northern turn.
|Description||It is a crashed airship. Duh. Apparently someone tried to take this thing airborne from one of the nearby mountains. It doesn't look like it went very well.|
Just north of Barrow Lagoon. This lagoon itself is south of the "M" of the word Ambarino on your map. On the north end of the lagoon is an abandoned cottage. The defaced grave can be found just east of it.
|Description||Someone dug up the body of whoever was in this extremely shallow grave. I'm not even mad. I'm impressed. Do you know how hard it is to dig through frozen ground? The corpse appears to be missing part of one of its legs, but beyond that there isn't anything interesting about it.|
|Face in Cliff|
Southeast Ambarino, around the Grizzlies East region. It is almost directly north of Moonstone Pond
|Description||The face in a cliff is, quite literally, a face in a cliff. Some sculptor made it, and you should be able to see it when riding around north of Moonstone Pond. You should at least see the scaffolding. There is a small entryway to the scaffolding to the south of the face, so make your way up the mountain behind it and you should see a slim little pathway through the mountain at the top. There will be a man hanging here, and you can shoot him down to loot a note off of him. Climb up to where the face is to inspect it, and next to it will be a chest with some goodies to loot.|
In the northeast corner of New Hanover, right along the border between New Hanover and Ambarino. There is a train passing through this region, and this guy can be found just to the east of the small tunnel near this border. There is a ridge just north of the train tracks here, and the fossilized man can be found along the lowest ledge here. You can climb up the small hill leading up to it and find him stuck in the edge of the cliff.
|Description||Arthur finds a corpse here, and for once it is one not of his own making. There is nothing nearby to pick up or discover, but you can at least pay respects to this recently unearthed caveman.|
On top of Mount Hagen, which is in western Ambarino to the southeast of Lake Isabella. There is a path you can take right to the top of Mount Hagen, and once you get to the top go a little north. The corpse will be located right on the "M" of Mount Hagen on your map, if you're having trouble finding the exact location.
|Description||Ambarino seems to be full of frozen corpses, and you can find like five or six at various points on the map. This one is the most important, though, because he is a really old corpse. Like conquistadors old. You can also swap out hats with his morion helmet, which is worth taking with you as it is a unique item.|
At Caliga Hall. Right on the rear porch will be a man that isn't moving right next to a small table. There is a letter on the table. Inspect the letter to get credit for this point of interest.
|Description||Read the letter to find out more about the Gray's family history. Also...the guy on the porch might be dead? No one else seems concerned about it, but he can just fall out of his chair and not move if you bump him. Someone want to come pick up this corpse?|
As far northwest as you can go, at the very edge of the map.
|Description||There is a woman living in a shack out here, and as soon as you get close to her she'll sic her dogs on you. You will sadly have to kill them, and her, but afterwards if you get close to her house you can add it to your notebook. If you go inside and loot the drawer next to her bed, you'll find the second piece of the torn map. If you have the first piece it will now become the mended map.|
Western Ambarino, and north of Lake Isabella. It is directly north of where Deadboot Creek and Spider Gorge merge, right out in the open.
|Description||Mammoth bones! Sadly, these do not count towards the dinosaur bones you need to find in the optional side quest. Still, these are pretty cool. Even though they are indeed mammoth, they can be kind of hard to see because they will blend in with the snow.|
Eastern New Hanover, directly west of Van Horn. If you go west of Van Horn and cross the railroad track, you'll find an abandoned house. You'll need to get up to the second floor, which will require a bit of work. Go to the west side of the house and you'll see a cart right next to a small porch. Climb up on the cart, and then climb up on the roof above the porch. There is an open window up here, and if you climb into it you'll find the manmade mutant. You'll know what it is.
|Description||Uh...huh. This is certainly something. If you look around the room, you'll find some various goodies and four "research" notes detailing the experiment. Grab what you want, get your sketch, and leave before you get stuck in a The Evil Within game.|
A cliff in the Grizzlies East region in southeastern Ambarino. The easiest way to get to him is to take the road that goes between the "R" and the "I" of the "Grizzlies East" written on your map. Take it until you are above and between the "G" and the "R". Head south from here, and you should see a lone individual sitting on the edge of the cliff.
|Description||Since he is meditating quietly, you should take this advantage to loudly ask what he's doing like six times in a row. The monk stays silent, but does give you the "...seriously?" glare now and then. You need to walk over to him to be able to inspect the entire location.|
Far northeast corner of the map, west of the Brandywine Drop in the Roanoke Ridge area.
|Description||The Meteor House gets its name from the fact a meteor crashed through the roof and killed everyone inside. Rough. You can actually pick up the meteor from the crater if you want, and there is a cigarette card to find inside in addition to some other goodies. The house can be sketched after you inspect the place.|
Far northeast corner of the map, east of the northernmost border of New Hanover and Ambarino and north of the railroad that runs through this area.
|Description||This area of the map is apparently a lightning rod of falling celestial bodies. You'll know when you get close, because this meteorite is in the middle of a huge impact zone that goes fairly deep into the ground. Go to the center of this to inspect the meteorite.|
|Mysterious Hill Home|
Towards the middle of the region, and south of where the "I" in Ambarino appears on your map.
|Description||It looks like an abandoned home where a Hobbit used to live. I do not know where Bilbo Baggins is in this game, but at least we found his house. You can't enter it so there isn't much to do here besides gawk.|
Almost directly east of Horseshoe Overlook.
|Description||This is likely the most straightforward point of interest you can find. It is an abandoned oil derrick right in the middle of the plains without anything else around it. It kind of sticks out. This is one you'll almost certainly find naturally without much help.|
Far northeast corner of the map. Northwest of Annesburg and across the Kamassa River.
|Description||This structure is dug into the ground, with a series of five or so tunnels leading into an altar at the center. This is a particularly important point of interest to visit because you get some good loot here. First is the Viking Helmet, which is one that will be permanently added to your wardrobe. You'll need to check the tunnels for this. Second is a Viking Hatchet, a weapon you won't be able to find elsewhere. This is located right next to the central altar. The third and final is the Ancient Viking Comb. This is the hardest to find. If you head directly north from the altar, you'll enter an underground area of the tunnel. Turn left down the first path you ca go and immediately look to your left. You will see four skulls on a shelf. Shoot the skulls, and behind them on the ledge will be the Ancient Viking Comb.|
|Old World Scripts|
Far northeast corner of the map. Northeast of Annesburg along the north shore of the Lannahechee River. It is about a quarter of the way down from where the north shore starts to where the map ends.
|Description||There will be some writing on one of the medium sized rocks in this area. It will be on the north side of the rock and it is a bunch of old timey letters that Arthur can't read. I'm going to assume it said "Thog was here".|
Bluewater Marsh region. It is found right at the bottom of the "W" in Bluewater Marsh on the map.
|Description||If you travel to the where the "W" is in Bluewater on your map, you can find an abandoned houseboat. Go on board and you'll hear some music, and if you enter the door leading into the cabin, you'll find the phonograph sitting on a cabinet to your left. Resist the urge to dance and add it to your sketchbook.|
|Location||West of Bluewater Marsh|
|Description||There is a small abandoned town right next to the roadway that leads into Bluewater Marsh. Amongst the rubble is a condemned church. Get close enough to its front door and you'll be able to add this to your sketch book.|
|Location||Slightly to the southwest of the "H" of the New Hanover text on your map. It will be just north of the nearby road.|
|Description||There are a couple of small trees here, and right next to them will be a fairly large rock. Check the southern face of the rock and you'll find all sorts of text. Resist the urge to add "Arthur wuz here" and add it to your journal.|
|Location||West of Van Horn, sort of in between Van Horn and Fort Brennand|
|Description||When you're passing through, you'll see an odd mound with a bunch of rocks in the middle. You will not be able to inspect it from down here, though. Climb up the nearby tower to look at it from above, and once you reach the top you'll be able to add it to Arthur's notebook.|
|Location||Southeast of the Wapiti Indian Reservation. If you go east from Donner Falls and take the road heading eastward, look towards the large rocks that are south of the "I" from the word Ambarino on your map. There will be a gap in the rocks, and if you walk through them you will see a crevice in the cliffside. Walk into it and to the room in the center to find the statues.|
|Description||This is actually a fairly complicated puzzle that is explained further in the Secrets and Other Fun Stuff section of the guide. For now, you just have to check out the statue towards the center to get Arthur to add it to his note book. Don't press any of the switches on the status along the sides. This will just make more work for yourself.|
|Strange Statues (Cave Painting)|
|Location||Almost directly north of Valentine, across the Dakota River and just south of the train tracks|
|Description||There is a large rock in this area with a hole through the middle of it. There is a path from the west that leads into it that you can get to fairly easily if you come down from the train tracks by Granite Pass. If you walk into it, you'll find a strange cave painting that you can inspect.|
|Strange Statues (Cave Painting)|
|Location||Almost directly north of Valentine, across the Dakota River and just south of the train tracks|
|Description||There is a large rock in this area with a hole through the middle of it. There is a path from the west that leads into it that you can get to fairly easily if you come down from the train tracks by Granite Pass. If you walk into it, you'll find a strange cave painting that you can inspect.|
|Location||East of Lakay. It will be shown as an extremely small building on your map.|
|Description||It is a tiny church. What were you expecting? You have to get fairly close to it for Arthur to inspect it and add it to his notebook. What is this?! A church for ants?!|
|Location||Southern area of The Heartlands, almost directly east of Flatneck Station|
|Description||This will be directly adjacent to the train tracks in the south of New Hanover. It looks like a small, unassuming shed that doesn't have many distinguishing features to it. Walk up towards its front door and you'll be able to inspect it.|
|Trail Trees (Part I)|
|Location||In the northeast corner of the region, northwest of the Elysian Pool. Directly west of the second "A" in Kamassa River on your map are a couple of small buildings. The buildings themselves are a part of a mine that is important for a stranger mission later in the game. But right to the west of the mine will be this tree.|
|Description||This tree is very easy to find because it is huge. It is far an away the biggest tree in the area, and it has a weird right angle kink near the bottom of it. Arthur loves drawing weird trees (as you'll soon find out) so add this to your notebook.|
|Trail Trees (Part II)|
|Location||Close to where you found the first of the trail trees. This one is directly west of the "R" in Kamassa River. If you go to the closest road west of the "R", this tree will be growing along the east side of it.|
|Description||Another very strange tree. It should be easy enough to find because of how tall it is, but if you're having trouble look for the tree that looks like a number 4.|
|Trail Trees (Part III)|
|Location||Just a bit to the southwest of where Trail Trees (Part II) was found. There is a bridge just a little bit away, and this tree can be found north of that bridge, right along the west side of the road.|
|Description||Yet another strange tree. Must be something in the dirt. Has the same weird right angle and is also quite tall.|
|Trail Trees (Part IV)|
|Location||Just south of the third of the trail trees. Go over on the other side of the bridge, and check the east side of the road immediately after you finishing crossing it.|
|Description||The fourth and final of the strange trees. Bye, strange trees!|
|Location||This is near the middle of the region, to the south of the space between the "H" and the "A" of the New Hanover text. There is a small building in this area labeled Larned Sod, and this point of interest is just to the east of that up on the nearby hill.|
|Description||As the name suggests, this is a tree that is warped. There is only one tree in the entire area, so it shouldn't be hard to find.|
About halfway between Shady Belle and Saint Denis. It is southwest of Saint Denis, on one of the larger islands on the map in this area.
|Description||There is a corpse just laying here, face down. After all the corpses Arthur has made in this game, you'd think this wouldn't be interesting to him. This specific corpse has a small, withered arm though, so Arthur makes a note of it.|
Dinosaur Bone locations are collected as part of the optional mission A Test of Faith. This mission can be started at any point during Chapter 2 or later by talking to a woman who is digging around at a spot just southeast of Horseshoe Overlook. She wants to find dinosaur bones, but is apparently too lazy to do it herself because she enlists your help for it. Time for some amateur paleontology!
There are thirty dinosaur bones spread throughout the game, and after you find the location of one you can go to a post office and send that information away to Deborah MacGuiness. You'll get rewards at certain points for doing so, so keep an eye out for them during your travels. These can be hard to find, and the best way to make sure you aren't missing any is by always periodically going into Eagle Eye while exploring the map. In Eagle Eye, dinosaur bones will show up with a bright yellow pillar of light as long as you are fairly close, which makes finding them all much easier. If you are having any trouble finding them and don't feel like systematically going through the entire map, you can refer to the table below.
|1||Ambarino||In the southeast of the Grizzlies West region, right next to the Dakota River. It is northwest of Valentine and across the Dakota River. If you locate Chadwick Farm just north of Valentine, the dinosaur bone is almost directly east of that. You want to be on the trail that is directly adjacent to the Dakota River, because the dinosaur bone will be visible from that. There will be a small incline off of the path that leads up to some rocks and the side of the cliff. The dinosaur bones are located right int the side of the rocks and can be found fairly easy if you are using Eagle Eye.|
|2||Ambarino||This will be in central Ambarino, south of the Cotorra Springs region. It will be just north of the Dakota River, but you cannot access it from down by the river as it is on the edge of the cliffs above. Instead, get to the top of the cliffs following one of the paths that leads up from the river or, alternatively, taking the railroad westward from Bacchus Bridge. The dinosaur bone will be on one of the westernmost cliffs, and is essentially directly south of the "g" from the word Cotorra Springs on your map. When you reach the edge of the cliff, look down and you should see another ledge sticking a bit further out. The dinosaur bone will be down there. Use your Eagle Eye to confirm it if you cannot see it.|
The eastern portion of Ambarino. This one is found almost directly north of the "O" of Ambarino on your map. It is north of the northernmost train track, but south of the northernmost road that cuts through the area. There is a small hill just south of the road, and it is near the top of the hill.
Just west of the bottom of the "I" in the world Ambarino on the map. There is a road traveling north and south just east of Donner Falls in Ambarino. If you travel off the road going east (towards the bottom of the "I" on the map) you will see a fairly steep hill with rocks near the top. Do not go to the top of this cliff, and instead inspect the rocks. There will be a dinosaur bone imbedded in the cliff wall just behind the rocks. This one can be hard to spot, so use your Eagle Eye to get the small yellow pillar of light to help you identify the exact location.
In the Grizzlies East region, there are a couple of small mountain ranges. There is one mountain range located directly on top of where the word "East" appears for Grizzlies East on your map. If you travel to it, you can climb up so you reach the peak of the mountain that is just to the west of the "S" in the word East. The dinosaur bone is just laying on top of it. It is hard to climb here, so keep trying angles until you find one that works for you. Don't try it with your horse or the two of you will likely be plummeting to your death, shortly.
|6||Ambarino||It is kind of hard to give this an exact region, because it is right on the border of Ambarino and New Hanover. It is just on the eastern boarder of Ambarino, to the northeast of O'Creagh's Run. Go to where the northernmost railroad hits the border of Ambarino and New Hanover and then continue following the border southward. There is a little cliff that is just past the next road, and the dinosaur bone will be on top of the northern most hill.|
|7||New Hanover||Found fairly far to northeast of Valentine. It is also northeast of Fort Wallace. It is located just to the southwest of the bottom left corner of the second "S" in Bacchus Station. There is a fairly large hill jus northeast of Fort Wallace you need to climb up to get to it, and the easiest way to climb it is going northeast from Fort Wallace as the other ways are very steep. It is near the top of this mountain, so keep using Eagle Eye when you get close to help locate it.|
|8||New Hanover||In western New Hanover, to the northeast of Valentine. If you go to the Cumberland Forest area, go directly south of the "C" from Cumberland Forest on your map. Keep going south until you hit a ridge. There is a path underneath (represented by a dotted line on your map), but you won't need to go to it. The dinosaur bone is on the edge of this ridge. It is located on a rocky area without any grass growing around it.|
|9||New Hanover||In western New Hanover, to the west of Valentine. It is almost directly north of the right end of the "A" in Valentine on your map. It is before the Dakota River, and you want to stay up on the elevated area here and not go down to the actual river. It is right near the ledge looking over the river, so you'll want to get fairly close to the side.|
|10||New Hanover||In the far western part of New Hanover. There is a place where the Creek River (in West Elizabeth) feeds into the Dakota River and this bone is just to the east of that. It is almost directly east of the "O" from Dakota River, but you'll need to take the southernmost road here to get to it. It will be almost directly south of the "N" from Cumberland Falls on your map. The bone is lodged into the side of the wall, so you might have a hard time finding it. Keep using Eagle Eye if you need to once you get close to the destination.|
|11||New Hanover||In the center of The Heartlands region in New Hanover. If you go just south of the gap between the "A" and the "R" of The Heartlands text on your map, you will find an oil derrick. It should be easy enough to find because it is the only building anywhere in the area. Go to the center of the oil derrick, and climb down the ladder into the well. The dinosaur bone can be found in the bottom of this well.|
|12||New Hanover||Located in the southern portion of New Hanover. It is almost directly south of the space between the "R" and the "T" of The Heartlands on your map. Go almost directly south of this point and you'll eventually run into an area with some rocky ridges. There will be a little corner here where the ridges meet and you won't be able to climb up, and the dinosaur bone will be a little bit before that.|
|13||New Hanover||In southern New Hanover. It is almost directly south of the first "A" in The Heartlands on your map, and will be just slightly north of the southernmost railroad track in the area. It will be slightly east of the Trading Post point of interest if you're having a hard time locating it.|
Found in the northeast portion of New Hanover, in the Roanoke Ridge area. It is almost directly east of the midpoint between the first "O" and "A" in Roanoke on the map, slightly to the east of the first road. It is up on top of a little ridge, right next to a couple small trees.
|15||New Hanover||Located in the far east of New Hanover, just to the northwest of Van Horn. Unfortunately, there isn't much around it so it is hard to give a good frame of reference other than just looking at the map. There is a stable north of Van Horn, and this dinosaur bone is southwest of that, past the railroad tracks and a couple of roads. It is also almost directly south of a small building labeled as the Roadside Brothel. If you have this spot labeled on your map, go south past the next road and the dinosaur bone will be about halfway between that road and the next one.|
|16||New Hanover||Right by the Kamassa River, north of the Elysian Pool in eastern New Hanover. This dinosaur bone is located just to the east of the "I" of Kamassa River on your map. It will be right near the west bank of the river, but it is up really high on the ridges overhead so you need to approach this from the west or it'll be impossible to reach. This is in a hard spot to reach without falling a bit, so you can either just tumble a bit and take a small hit to your health, or you can approach this from around the second "S" in Kamassa River and then travel south from there to find it. You'll need to get pretty close to the edge to find it.|
This one can be found just north of the "O" in New Hanover on your map. It is close to the border with Ambarino. There is a small house here, and the bone is just south of the house in a small patch of dirt.
Travel to northwestern Lemoyne, near the western end of Dewberry Creek. This dinosaur bone is located just south of the "L" of the word Lemoyne on your map, right near the edge of where the creek ends.
This is also n northwestern Lemyone, nearby Dewberry Creek. This is within walking distance of the last one, and can be found almost directly north f the "D" in Dewberry Creek. It is right along the border to New Hanover.
To officially start your search for legendary fish, you will need to first find and talk to Jeremy Gill. He is located on the pier near the northeast corner of the large lake at the bottom of New Hanover. He is nearby where the border of New Hanover and Lemoyne meet near the lake, so go and chat with him as soon as you can. He'll rope you into helping him find 13 different legendary fish, promising to share some of the loot with you if you can deliver him all the fish. He is kind enough to give you a map showing where all 13 of the fish can be found. Refer to this map whenever you are trying to find another fish, because it does a good job showing you where they all are at. After you catch one, take it to any post office you can find and send it back to Jeremy. He will send you a reward after 24 hours each time.
The location of all the fish are shown below. It is worth noting that even though these are "legendary" fish, you don't need to do much more to catch them. You need to first start the Fisher of Fish mission by talking to Jeremy, and at that point three special lures will be available for purchase in Lagras, which is a small village right in between Bluewater Marsh and Bayou Nwa in Lemoyne. Purchase all three of these immediately as they are the only way you can catch the legendary fish. Make sure you use the right lure for the right fish. Beyond that, fish as you would normally. They put up slightly more of a fight, but really it isn't hard to catch any of them once you have the right equipment. Finding them can be the hard part, as they rarely bite on your first cast. Please refer to the Fish section of the Compendium for slightly more information if needed.
There are some exceptions to this, and the "really large" legendary fish (like the Legendary Steelhead Trout) can be a pain to reel in. Your best bet is pausing occasionally to let your hand recover because these can be long fights. There is an alternate reeling-in strategy that the game gives you at this point, and you'll want to use it. Tile the left analog stick down which will pull the rod up, and then quickly reel in as hard as you can. Relax the rod and then repeat this again, and again, until the fish begins to struggle. This will help you pick up ground a little more quickly and will stop you from feel like you're not getting anywhere with the fish. Be careful when the fish is struggling, though, because if you're using the reel at this point it is very possible for the rod to snap, forcing you to start all over again.
|Location||Flat Iron Lake. The exact location is just south of your camp in Chapter 3. You must first complete Kieran's fishing Camp Activity in Chapter 3 for it to be added to your map. He'll lead you to the exact spot as part of the activity.|
|Lure||Special Lake Lure|
|Legendary Chain Pickerel|
|Location||Dakota River, to the southwest of Horseshoe Overlook.|
|Lure||Special River Lure|
|Legendary Bullhead Catfish|
|Location||Sisika Penetentiary, an island off the northwest coast of Saint Denis.|
|Lure||Special River Lure|
|Legendary Smallmouth Bass|
|Location||Owanjila Lake, west of Strawberry.|
|Lure||Special Lake Lure|
|Location||Elysian Pool, in northeastern New Hanover.|
|Lure||Special Lake Lure|
|Legendary Lake Sturgeon|
|Location||Just outside Saint Denis. If you go to the southwest corner of Saint Denis, you will find a railroad crossing going over a river and the fish will be just on the south side of the railroad.|
|Lure||Special River Lure|
|Legendary Steelhead Trout|
|Location||Willard's Rest. It is as far northeast as you can possible go in this map.|
|Lure||Special River Lure|
|Legendary Longnose Gar|
|Location||Bayou Nwa. It is just north of Lakay, along the southern edge of the swamp Lagras is located on.|
|Lure||Special Swamp Lure|
|Location||Van Horn. You'll want to go to the base of the lighthouse facing out eastward into the river.|
Special River Lure
|Legendary Sockeye Salmon|
|Location||Lake Isabella. Fish in the small pool north of the image of the legendary fish on your map for best results.|
|Lure||Special Lake Lure|
To get "credit" for the collectible, you not only need to catch the fish, you need to send it off in the mail too. Take it to the nearest post office and select the send mail option to send your fish. Sending in legendary fish will occasionally come with a reward. After sending in one fish, you will receive the Lake Lure (which you probably already have at this point). After sending in ten, you will receive $45 an succulent fish meat.
After starting the Duchesses and Other Animals stranger mission in Chapter 4, you will can start turning in certain exotic items for cash to your point of contact. There are multiple phases to this mission, each of which require you to collect a certain number of rare flower or animal feathers. The flowers always grow in the exact same spot, so while they are rare if you know their location you won't have to rely on luck to find them. The location of all exotics are detailed below for each phase of the mission.
For this first mission, you will need to collect 15 plumes from rare egrets. These only show up in certain specific locations, so while hunting keep a close eye out for them. In Eagle Eye they will glow brightly, making them a bit easier to pick out. The birds you will need to discover are:
The egrets appear throughout the swamplands of Bayou Nwa, so you'll need to check various spots while hunting for them. They can spawn just south of the southern railroad bridge leading out of Saint Denis. There are some small islands south of the western edge of the bridge (right where it meets the land), and you can occasionally find a couple of egrets resting here. These islands that are southwest of Saint Denis and east of Shady Belle is a good hunting spot for egrets. More can be found in the Bayou Nwa region, particularly around the western edge near the small lake in this region. Both of these spots were especially good for Snowy Egrets, although the others can be found here too.
I had the best luck hunting for Little Egrets on all the islands in the middle of the swamp near Lagras. It will require some wading out to collect their corpses, so make sure you go into Dead Eye and clear out any alligators lurking nearby before walking out.
|Lady of the Night Orchids|
The first orchids you need to find are fairly close by where you first get the side quest. There are twenty of these flowers in total, and you need to collect 15 of them. They're all localized either northeast of Caliga Hall or in the west/southwest area of Bayou Nwa. These all grow on tree trunks, so use your Eagle Eye on trees in the area to help locate them if you're having trouble.
#1: Northeast of Caliga Hall is an abandoned building that used to be a factory of some sort. It is located in between the northern railroad and road that both lead out of the southwestern side of Saint Denis. If you go to the west side of the yard outside the factory, you will see a lone tree growing. The flower will be on that.
|Moccasin Flower Orchids|
Most of these orchids are located right around the small town of Butcher Creek in eastern New Hanover. There are some a little to the north and some a little to the south, but a lot of these are actually located in and around the town. You only need ten in total, and there are twenty possible spawn locations. These grow on the ground, so you won't need to search the trees for these.
#1: Slightly outside of Butcher Creek. It is just to the northeast of the bottom right, curly tip of the "R" in New Hanover.
|Acuna's Star Orchids|
Only three of these orchids are needed for the mission, but there are ten in total you can collect. Most are on the eastern side of the Bluewater Marsh region, to the east of the largest lake in the area. These all grow on tree trunks and will not be found just on the ground.
#1: Directly south of the "H" in Bluewater Marsh on your map. It is also just to the west of the "M" in Canebreak Manor if that is also written on your map. You can find it just on the edge of the swamp that surrounds Canebreak Manor, growing out of a tree.
You'll need to find a higher percentage of these than Acuna's Star Orchids, and while there are also ten in total, you will need to find seven of them for the mission. These are also localized in the eastern regions of Bayou Nwa and Bluewater Marsh. They also grow on tree trunks. The locations are detailed below.
#1: Located to the southeast of the "T" in Bluewater Marsh. It is just north of one of the roads going through the area, and just east of a second road nearby. It is right by the intersection of the two roads. It is growing on the big tree nearest to the intersection.
For the mission, you'll need to grab five of these. The spawn in ten different points in the game, and they are located all around Shady Belle. They will be slightly to the east or north of Shady Belle, and won't grow anywhere else in the game. These flowers all can be found growing on trees.
#1: Very close to Shady Belle, and slightly east of the main house. There is a shack nearby that is just east of the main house, and the tree you want to check is the one closest to the northeast of that shack.
|Night Scented Orchids|
Night Scented Orchids are localized at the south of Lemoyne, right along the Lannahechee River. There are ten total possible locations, but for the purposes of the mission you only need five. These can be a bit harder to find than some of the others because they tend to just be in the middle of a wooded area without many landmarks around them. Descriptions of all ten are included below.
#1: To the northeast of Old Harry Fen. It is almost directly south of the final "S" in Scarlett Meadows on your map. The tree you're looking for is narrow and only has leaves near the top.
|Rat Tail Orchids|
There are ten Rat Tail Orchids you need to find. They are spread out in the Bluewater Marsh and Bayou Nwa region of Lemoyne. Specifically, they can be found at the locations listed below.
#1: Just to the west of the first "E" in Bluewater Marsh on your map.
Five of these are needed for the mission request. There are ten total spawn points in the game, all of which are in western Bayou Nwa. All ten of these are located west of the "B" in Bayou Nwa but east of the river, so they are grouped fairly close together. These are another kind of orchid that grow on the trunks of trees in the area.
#1: Found in southwestern Bayou Nwa. It is south of the little lake in the area, but north of the southern road. It is a little bit north of the intersection between the two roads in the area.
Clamshell Orchids are localized in the small islands southwest of Saint Denis and to the east of Shady Belle. There are ten total spawn points, and five of these will need to be collected for the mission. Like most other orchids, these grow on trees.
#1: To the southeast of Shady Belle. There is a road on your that runs through some of the small islands here, and you want to go to the island that is the further south that has the road running through it. The tree with the Clamshell Orchid growing on it will be along the islands southern shoreline, somewhere near the middle.
|Dragon's Mouth Orchids|
You only need five of these, but they are one of the bigger pains to track down. There are ten spawn spots, but they are spread out a decent amount and it'll take a while to track down the number you need. They're all in eastern Ambarino, near the Grizzlies East region. The quickest five to grab are probably 2 through 6 below, but go ahead and grab whatever looks best to you. These all grow out of the ground.
#1: In the southeast corner of Ambarino. You will see a triangular intersection at the very bottom corner. Take the road north until you are right in the middle of the two "peaks" of the road on the right. Just to the east of the road, amongst some trees, will be the first orchid.
You need five Queen's Orchids to complete the request, and there are ten in total you can pick. These tend to be spread around the shoreline of the largest lake of the swap (the body of water to the northeast of Lagras). Unlike most orchids, these do not grow on trees so you'll want to investigate the ground instead. Locations are detailed below.
#1: There is a fairly large peninsula to the northeast of Lagras. The first Queen's Orchid can be found at the northeast tip of this peninsula, right along the waterfront. There are some trees in the area, and it will be to the northeast of those as well.
|Sparrow's Egg Orchids|
The very final exotic you'll need to collect in the game (thank goodness). You need 10 of these and there are 25 total spawn locations in the game. All of them are in the northeast of New Hanover, right around the Roanoke Valley and Roanoke Ridge region by Annesburg. These grow on the ground, and are frequently well hidden around a whole bunch of nothing. All spawn locations are detailed below.
#1: Near northern Roanoke Ridge. It is directly west of the midpoint between the first "O" and the "A" of Roanoke Ridge on your map. It will be just west of the first road here. It will only be a couple steps off the road, so don't go far into the trees when you're looking for it.
#9: Northeast of the Elysian Pool in eastern New Hanover. It is almost directly east of the "V" of Kamassa River. Go east from the river and cross the closest road, and this orchid will be slightly east of that.
You can unlock this collectibles quest by first talking to Francis Sinclair nearby Strawberry and beginning the Geology For Beginners side quest. Sinclair's cabin is to the northwest of Strawberry, west of Hawks Eye Creek. The cabin itself is not marked on your map, but if you check the image below you can see where it is located. Talk to him and he will ask you to find ten rock carvings for him that are scattered across the map. The list below will show you all rock carving and include their location.
|Rock Carving #1|
|Go to Ambarino and find Mount Hagen on your map. It'll be southeast of Lake Isabella. There is actually a path that leads all the way to the top of Mount Hagen that you can see on your map, and the path itself will end just at the "O" in the word Mount Hagen on your map. Follow this path all the way up to the top of the mountain. You will pass a couple of run down buildings on your right on the way up, and this will let you know that you're close. Continue following the path as it winds around the tip of the mountain to your right. There will be some fairly high rocks now to your right, and you should begin looking at these because the carving will be on one of them, right before the path ends.|
|Rock Carving #2|
|You can find this one along the Whimyard Straight in Ambarino. This is a small river south of the second "A" in Ambarino. There will be a road, north of the railroad that is north of Cotorra Springs and continues westward towards the Whimyard Straight. Take this road westward until you reach Whimyard Straight, then cross the bridge so you are on the west shore of the straight. Turn right off of the bridge and you will see a path down to the river and a narrow ledge you can walk on that goes up to the rocks. Take the narrow ledge and at the top of it you'll find the rock carving.|
|Rock Carving #3|
|Go to Fort Wallace in the north of New Hanover and go to the northeast. This rock carving is hidden behind the nearest mountain just to the northeast of the fort. There will be a path from the south of the fort that leads around and down to the nearby river, and you want to head north from this path instead of taking it down to the river. Climb up the mountain in front of you using the fairly flat trail ahead of you, and you'll wind up going almost directly north. Once you get near the top, you'll notice it plateaus a bit and if you look directly north you'll see an area slightly above you that has a decent number of trees on it. Climb up on this, again heading almost directly north, and you'll find a decline that heads through two peaks on either side. Turn to your left when you reach the bottom and go straight ahead until you see the paths split on an upward incline and a downward one. Take the path to the right that leads downwards a little, and at the bottom to your right will be the rock carving.|
|Rock Carving #4|
|You'll need to travel northwest of the Cumberland Forest region in New Hanover to find this one. If you haven't located Cumberland Forest yet, it is to the northeast of Valentine. To get to the rock carving, check your map and locate the small dotted path that runs directly adjacent to the "C" of Cumberland Forest. Take this path north, and then turn left when given the chance. This path eventually veers to the northwest and begins dipping downward. Do not follow it at this point, and instead continue westward. You will see a small forested area. Climb up on this area, and stick close to the northern ridge of this area (which should be right next to the path that runs adjacent to it). If you follow this ridge westward, you will find a small drop that goes down to a more rocky area. Follow this rocky path around, and you will find the rock carving on the west face of the cliff.|
|Rock Carving #7|
|Located in southwestern New Hanover, near Flatneck Station. Travel northwest from Flatneck Station. Just past some trees, you will find a ridge and there should be a small path you can travel down to get towards the river. Take the path but turn left in just a couple of steps once you get to the next ridge. You'll see a small rock wall on your left, and there will be another rock wall below you on your right. Keep looking to your left, and you will find a small rock carving a little ways down. This one is smaller than most of the others, so keep using Eagle Eye if you're having a hard time finding it.|
|Rock Carving #8|
|This is one of the easier rock carvings to get to, and you really don't have to do much climbing to get to it. This one is near the Grizzlies East region in the southeast portion of Ambarino. It'll be south of Moonstone Pond, right along the border with New Hanover. If you get to the spot that is directly south of Moostone Pond just above the border with New Hanover and look to the east, you will see a small hilly region. Climb all the way up but look to your right just before you get to the plateau. Walk over here, and the rock carving will be on the side of one of these larger rock faces. You won't actually have to climb up on it, and you can sketch it as soon as you get close.|
|Rock Carving #9|
Found in northeastern New Hanover, in the Roanoke Ridge area. This is southwest of Annesburg, and is almost directly west of the "N" in Roanoke Ridge on your map. There is a road that travels between the "A" and "N" of Roanoke on your map, and if you take this road west you travel right along a ridge in this area. Follow this road along until you are sort of directly north of where the ridge is directly west of the "N". If you use your Eagle Eye, you can easily see the rock carving on the ridge from here. Walk up the hill and over to the rock carving to inspect it.
|Rock Carving #10|
|The final rock carving is in eastern New Hanover, nearby Butcher Creek. Along the Kamassa River, to the northeast of the second "E" of New Hanover, is a small lake called Elysian Pool. There is a road that crosses over this pool on its eastern edge. Go directly north from where this road crosses the pool, and you will see a small rocky ridge just north of the road. The rock carving is located right along the ridge and you can easily spot it using Eagle Eye from the road. It will be on a higher elevation than the road, but you can actually sketch it from the ground below as long as you are somewhat close to it.|
MORE COMING SOON
Hunting request are a series of requests for you to, well, hunt. Shocking, I know. You need to hunt specific animals and collect perfect carcasses before sending them off in the mail. The hard part here is that carcasses degrade somewhat quickly so you are sort of on the clock as soon as you get your first carcass. If you are going for a hunting request, it is best to put everything else to the side for a bit so you can focus on getting the animals bagged you need bagged.
To trigger a hunting request, you need to find the request posted at a train station at one of six towns. It doesn't matter which town you go to first, the hunting request will always appear in the same order. Requests can be found posted in the following towns: Van Horn, Valentine, Rhodes, Strawberry, Saint Denis, or Armadillo. The request will detail what animals you need, and tips for bagging these in a good time can be found below. After you complete your first request, you will no longer need to check for more posters because a new request list will be sent to you each time you go to collect your reward from the post office.
|Hunting Request #1|
|Animals||1 Perfect Rabbit Carcass and 1 Perfect Squirrel Carcass|
The good news is they aren't picky on what kind of rabbit or what kind of squirrel. To ensure a perfect carcass, you will want to use a bow with small game arrows equipped, and for rabbits you want to use the Varmint Rifle and either get a head or a body shot. The squirrel is easy enough because if you hit it anywhere, it will be a fatal shot. Rabbits are actually some of the more difficult animals to get a perfect carcass on in the game, because they are fast and have really small areas that ensure a clean kill. When you see one, check its quality and as long as it is three stars, quickly go into Dead Eye. With it activated, carefully aim for either of the red areas (head or upper body). If you go for the head, make sure it is centered because you can aim for the ears and that won't kill it and will just damage the coat. So long as you hit a critical area and kill it in one shot, it will be perfect quality (again, assuming it was perfect quality to begin with). Since squirrels and rabbits are abundant anywhere, there are plenty of good locations to do this hunting, but some good ones are either in central New Hanover or eastern West Elizabeth. Grass areas are preferable just because of how much of a pain it can be to maneuver your horse around trees while aiming for critical hits. Go where ever you are comfortable though outside of swampland or snowy areas, because there are plenty of areas with squirrels and rabbits outside of those two.
There are numerous treasure maps in the game which will lead you to fame, fortune, or sometimes just more treasure maps. Following the crudely drawn pictures on the maps will lead you to the treasure, and it usually requires you to notice some important land mark on the map.
|High Stakes Treasure Map 1|
There are actually a handful of locations where you can find this map, as there are three difference chance encounters that involves it. The closest occurs just north of Riggs Station and south of Diablo Ridge in the West Elizabeth region. You will see a man looking thorough binoculars and talking to himself about the treasure. If you get close to him and ask what he's doing, he'll quickly change the subject and try to ride off on his horse. Hogtie him (or shoot him) and loot his body to get the map. If you don't, he'll ride away and take the map with him. He appears in two other regions as well, and if you fail to restrain him in all three of these locations you will have to go to a fence and buy the map from there.
This treasure is located at Cumberland Falls, a small waterfall that is part of the Dakota River. You will find it to the southwest of Valentine, and you want to go to the actual waterfall part of the river. If you approach Cumberland Falls from the south, you can go along a small rocky path that is directly adjacent to the river. Once you get close to the waterfall, you will find some small wooden debris that leads directly into the waterfall. Climb across it, and once you are under the waterfall you will need to climb up a rocky ledge to get up one more level. There is a small cove up here, so duck down and crawl inside of it. You will find the treasure in the back corner, which will give you another treasure map.
|High Stakes Treasure Map 2|
|This map will be found for completing the High Stakes Treasure Map 1. This location is detailed above.|
|Treasure Location||You'll need to travel to Barrow Lagoon, which is a small lake in Ambarino. If you check your map, it is the body of water just south of the "M" in the word Ambarino written on your map. There is a small island in the middle of the lagoon that you can walk to because the whole thing will be frozen. Climb up the side (or climb up part of the adjacent mountain if that is easier. Thee is a fallen log connecting the island to the adjacent mountains that serves as sort of a walk way. Climb onto it, and the treasure will be in a small hole in the log right around the middle. Be careful walking on it because you can easily fall off and take some significant fall damage if you aren't careful.|
|High Stakes Treasure Map 3|
|This map will be found for completing the High Stakes Treasure Map 2. This location is detailed above.|
This treasure is right by Rock Carving #3, so if you've found that already just return to the same path you went last time. If not, go to Fort Wallace in the north of New Hanover and go to the northeast. You want to reach the mountain that is just to the northeast of the fort, and it should be the first large peak you see if you look northeast from the fort. Climb up the mountain using the fairly flat trail ahead of you, and you'll wind up going almost directly north up this pathway. Once you get near the top of the mountain, you'll notice it plateaus a bit and if you look directly north you'll see an area slightly above you that has a decent number of trees on it. Climb up on this, again heading almost directly north, and you'll find a decline that heads through two peaks on either side. Turn to your left when you reach the bottom and go straight ahead until you see the paths split on an upward incline and a downward one. Take the path to the left that leads upwards and continue on.
This path is very narrow, so be careful not to fall off. You'll follow it around a bit until it ends and you will see a small stone platform underneath it. Drop down on top of it, and then turn around and fall down one more time to another path that is a little ways underneath it. Turn around one more time and fall down once again to a path that is just underneath this one. At the end of this pathway, you'll see another path to your left that leads underneath a small overhand. Duck down underneath it and work your way around. The treasure is just around the bend before you drop down again. Grab it, celebrate, and then continue dropping down by going forward until you are back on solid ground.
Reward: 3 Gold Bars
|Jack Hall Gang Map 1|
Just west of Flatneck Station, you will find a stranger icon if you get close enough to it. Go towards it to find Maximo. Maximo is looking through some binoculars, but calls you over when he sees you. He is apparently some famous treasure hunter, but is having a hard time decoding this map, so he's willing to sell it to you for the low, low price of $10. Decline, and you can instead buy it for the low, low price of $5. Decline again and you can just shoot him and take the map. Being a cowboy works like that sometimes. Alternatively, you can wait until a bit later in the game and buy it from a fence, although you must at least talk to Maximo in order for the fence to have it.
Take out your map and find the area labeled Caliban's Seat. It is just south of Valentine, so it shouldn't be too hard to find. The area you need to go is pretty easily identifiable, because there is a tall rock formation that is sort of sticking up by itself, and you will want to climb on top of the cliffs nearby it. You will be unable to climb up the cliffs right here, so instead head to the southeast until you find a more gentle hill that your character can actually climb up. Climb up the hill and keep climbing until you climb over some rocks to reach some trees and grass at the very top of this structure. Keep going forward until you see an abandoned tent, and just before that tent you should see a gentle decline to your right. Climb down and turn to your left and follow this narrow ledge here until you find a gap. Jump over the gap, and then climb up the rock structure at the very leftmost part of it, closest to the rock wall. Jump down from here and you'll find another small ledge. Follow the ledge as far as you can, and you'll find a gap in the wall on your left that you can search. The next treasure map is in here.
|Jack Hall Gang Map 2|
|Map Location||You unlock this map for completing Jack Hill Gang Map 1. Details on where to find that treasure are shown above.|
This treasure is located in the Cotorra Springs region, right around where the legendary wolf is. If you are unfamiliar with that area, it is northwest of Fort Wallace and southwest of the Wapiti Indian Reservation. Is is a little south of the gap between the "A" and the "R" in the Ambarino text on your map. When you get here, you'll notice all the trees are dead and you should see three geysers sticking out of the ground. Check your map one time, and these three geysers should form a square with a forth spot as shown on the treasure map. The treasure is where this forth spot should be. Move so you position yourself so that you are standing on the spot needed to form a square with the three geysers. There are rock piles in this area, and you'll want to go to the one in the front and the middle. On the backside of this rock pile is a little hole and the new treasure map can be found in there.
|Jack Hall Gang Map 3|
|Map Location||You unlock this map for completing Jack Hill Gang Map 2. Details on where to find that treasure are shown above.|
You will need to travel to Grizzlies East in southeastern Ambarino to complete this treasure hunt. There is a lake here called O'Creagh's Run that can be found just south of the "O" in Ambarino on your map. You should notice a small island in the middle of the lake with a very large tree growing out of it. You want to swim to this island, and the easiest way to do so is either from the northern shore or from the little peninsula jutting out in the middle of the western shore. You want to get to the south side of the island, which is a small patch of grass behind the rocks and large tree. There is a rock here you can inspect, and if you turn it over you'll finally find the Jack Hall Gang treasure.
|The Poisonous Trail Map 1|
|Map Location||Travel to Ambarino and go back to Colter, your hideout during Chapter 1. To the southeast of Colter is a small body of water known as Cairn Lake. There is a building just off of it to the southeast labeled as Cairn Lodge. Go inside and check out underneath the bed. There is a lockbox here that contains the treasure map. You will visit this location while searching for Flaco Hernandez as part of the optional stranger mission The Noblest of Men, and a Woman in Chapter 2.|
|Treasure Location||This is very easy to find, if you know what landmark the map is referencing. As you may note, the first part of the treasure map looks like a rock formation that looks like a face, and there happens to be a "Face Rock" landmark in Lemoyne. It is in the northwest of the region, directly to the east of the "R" in Scarlett Meadows that is written on your map. There is a tree next to it on the south side of the hill Face Rock is located on. Go up to it and look south. You will see a fallen tree and, right before it, the remains of a stump sticking out of the ground. Go check out the stump and you'll find the next treasure map.|
|The Poisonous Trail Map 2|
|Map Location||Obtained for completing The Poisonous Trail Map 1. Please refer to the previous solution for information.|
You need to travel to the Serpent Mound for this map, which is to the west of Van Horn. It is just to the east of where the Kamassa River juts out eastward. The area has a bunch of small, strange hills and some weird rock formations. If you climb up the nearby watchtower, you'll be able to see the whole formation. The place you want to go to is the oval of rocks, which is toward the center of the formation. There is a hole right in the middle of it. Inside will be the next treasure map.
|The Poisonous Trail Map 3|
|Map Location||Obtained for completing The Poisonous Trail Map 2. Please refer to the previous solution for information.|
As a side note, to get back up, you will need to run and climb the right side of the hill to get back up. If you go too slow, you'll just slide back down again. But, at the same time, don't mash too fast as it is easy to skip right past the top and leap into the pit of death beyond it. It'd be a shame to kill yourself now that you're holding 4 bright, shiny new gold bars.
|Map Location||This map can be found in Reed Cottage, a small cottage north of Annesburg. It will be marked on your map when you get close. Enter the door and turn to your left to find a chimney. If you inspect the chimney, you'll find this map stuffed inside.|
|Treasure Location||While this is both a map and it will lead you to treasure, it doesn't qualify as a "treasure map" for some reason. Meaning that it will not count towards the Total Completion when solved and it also doesn't bump you up a rung in the Explorer challenge pathway. It is still worth doing, however, because the prize is a gold ingot. As the map indicates, you want to go to the northwest of Elysian Pool. Go up to the cliffs that are just above to the northwest, and you will find a tree by itself close to the edge. If you check its drunk you will find an "X" sketched into the side. From here, go twenty steps north and the 5 steps east. If you aren't good at this, just look for a rook a little bit north of the tree. You'll get the option to inspect once you get close to it, and if you do you will find a hidden gold ingot.|
The final class of collectables are Dreamcatchers. Unlike a lot of these other collectables, there is no mission you need to start associated with them, and when you start the game they will be included in your collectables list. These can be found simply be wandering around the map, and a group of three or four are hung from twenty different trees in the game. When you come across a tree, inspect it to get credit for finding it, and Arthur will make a note on the map. The location of all 20 Dreamcatchers are included in the table below.
In the Grizzlies West. It can be found almost directly south of the "S" in the word "West" on your map. There is a small hilly area with some trees you can climb up that is due south from the larger mountain peak right above it. The Dreamcatchers will be hanging from the largest tree without any leaves on it in the area.
To the northeast of the first dreamcatcher. There is a road that runs alongside the railroad track in this area, and this dreamcatcher will be in a tree just to the west of the road. The road curves a lot, but there is a very small segment that runs almost directly north to south (it is almost directly north of the second "A" in the Dakota River text). The tree is about halfway down this segment, right off the road.
Just to the east of Cotorra Springs in central Ambarino. It will be just north of the railroad track running through here, and it will be easy to spot because these Dreamcatchers are hanging off a large, brown tree that is surrounded by smaller white ones.
In the northeast corner of Ambarino, just west of The Loft cabin and slightly north of the railroad that runs through here.
In the northeastern portion of the region, by Roanoke Ridge. If you go directly west of the second "O" in Roanoke Ridge, you can find this fairly close by the river. You should notice a small triangular intersection in this area, and this dreamcatcher location is just to the northwest of that.
|6||New Hanover||In northeastern New Hanover, just east of Beaver Hollow. It is almost touching the top right corner of the second "N" of Annesburg on your map, and will be just off the road running through here on its east side.|
Nearby Annesburg. It is located nearly directly south of the "U" in Annesburg on your map. Go south from the "U", cross the road, and then this tree will be found not that far from the road amongst a lot of other trees.
Southwest of where dreamcatcher #5 can be found. It is south of the "S" in Annesburg, right along the road that travels north to south that is close to being under the "S" as well. The tree you're looking for is right off the road, so you should be able to see it while traveling on it. It will be on the eastern side of the road, about halfway down (west of the midpoint between the "I" and the "D" in Roanoke Ridge.
|9||New Hanover||The tree you're looking for will be just east of the second "E" of the New Hanover text that appears on your map. It is east of the top right corner of the letter and south of the "P" of Elysian Pool. The tree is up a little hill from the pool, sort of by itself.|
It is right in the middle of the "O" of the word New Hanover that is written on your map. There are a lot of trees in this area, and the dreamcatchers might not be immediately apparent so use your Eagle Eye if you're having trouble.
Found in western New Hanover, to the south west of Valentine. It is almost directly south of the first "E" in Valentine. There is a dotted path that runs right past this E going north to south on your map, and this tree is on the west of this path, right around where the road sticks out to the left a bit.
|12||New Hanover||Also in western New Hanover, almost directly south of the location #10 is found. There is an area on your map south of Valentine called Caliban's Seat. To the southwest of this is a triangle shaped intersection. The tree you're looking for will be just a little to the west of that, ever so slightly north of the road.|
|13||New Hanover||In southwestern New Hanover, and almost directly south of where #10 and #11 can be found. This one is in the lower left corner of New Hanover, right by the Dakota River. Go directly east of the "O" from Dakota River on your map. It is just to the east of the very first road you'll run into. It is up on a ridge you can reach from the road though, so you'll need to ride around to get to higher ground.|
|14||New Hanover||Take the railroad going eastward out of Valentine. You want to get to the point that is almost directly north of the second "C" in Citadel Rock. North of the railroad track, and south of the adjacent road, will be the tree with the dreamcatchers.|
|15||New Hanover||Near the middle of New Hanover, and directly west of the first "E" of the New Hanover text on your map. It is east of the middle of the letter, and on the east side of the railroad track that runs through the area. There are a decent number of trees in the area, so use Eagle Eye to help locate the tree you're looking for.|
|16||New Hanover||In the eastern portion of The Heartlands region. If you check near the top right corner of the "N" of The Heartlands text on your map, you'll find a lone tree. Dreamcatchers will be hanging from it.|
|17||New Hanover||Near the middle of the region, right between the "A" and second "N" of the New Hanover text, are a couple of small ponds labeled as the Heartland Overflow. Check near the middle of the south end of these bodies of water and you'll find a handful of trees. The dreamcatchers will be hanging from one of these trees.|
|18||New Hanover||This one is found right near the border of New Hanover and Lemoyne. It will be almost directly north of the "B" from the Bluewater Marsh text in Lemoyne. North of this "B" is a river, which you need to pass, and a road, which you also need to pass. There is another road just above that road though, and the tree is just on the south edge of that road.|
This is in the northern part of Lemoyne, to the northwest of Aberdeen Pig Farm. It is close to the border of New Hanover, nearby where the Emerald Ranch is. It is north of the "M" and the "O" of Lemoyne on your map, sort of between the two of them.
Found slightly northwest of both Lonnie's Shack and Pleasance. It is located north of the "M" and "O" of Lemoyne on the map, in between the two. It is a little way south of the dreamcatcher described above.
Once you find all 20 dreamcatchers, your mission isn't quite done. Arthur will add a sketch to his notebook, drawing a picture of where all the dreamcatchers were at. It forms a buffalo on your map, and there is a clue for a hidden treasure on the drawing. If you look closely, you'll notice there is one extra "X" on the map. It is where the buffalo's eye would be at, and it will correspond to the Elysian Pool on your map. This is in eastern New Hanover, jus above the final "E" of the text of New Hanover.
Travel to the pool, and look at the north end to find a waterfall. Go underneath the waterfall to find a hidden entrance. Once inside, climb up on the rock above you, and then follow the narrow stream all the way around until it opens up into a larger room. Try to do this during the day, as this room will be lit up and it will be easier to see what you're looking for. Look to your right upon entering the room. There is a large window where the light is entering from. Walk over in this direction, and you should start seeing some cave paintings under where the light is coming from. Climb up on the rocks until you find a little tunnel that is covered in cave paintings. One of these paintings is a huge buffalo. Walk over and inspect it, and then walk right up next to where the eye is to find the Ancient Arrowhead. This is a pretty good item the permanently doubles your stamina when using the bow. If you're taking all the effort to track down the dreamcatchers, you should at least go and get your reward!
