Starting in New Austin today folks..
We’ll start in Tumbleweed for the challenges today. We can visit the stables then go to get the Desert Sage and the Blackcurrants. Let’s get into it…
Tumbleweed is the Fast Travel post we will start from today. Visit the stables just on the edge of town and change the appearance of one of your horses. You can use one of the horses you don’t use very often and just change the mane or tail to wild. This is free to do and still gets you the gold.
Desert Sage and Blackcurrants
Head south down the hill from the stables. Just to the north of the letter ‘E’ in the word New on the map there are three patches of Blackcurrants. You should be able to get all five plants picked from here. Just to the west of here, across the road that leads towards Gaptooth Breach there are a couple of patches of Desert Sage. If you’re lucky you’ll get all five plants picked here. If not, head along the road to the west and you will find a few more patches as the road bends south.
Head back into Tumbleweed and use the fast travel post to travel to Manzanita Post. Ride south to Bear Claw and you’ll find a Grizzly. Shoot and kill it to complete the challenge.
Get the animal knife kills. The turkeys in Tall Trees are easy sport, then complete a telegram mission. Then head into a Showdown with your pistols. That’ll do it for today…
Good Luck out there!
