Rancher (2/9)



  1. That seems a bit excessive in terms of price, especially given the limitations of the current game. Guess it's back to waiting and seeing.
  2. Interesting to see if the patch affects this. I have an Xmas work thing to go to so I can't play till later today, sadface.
  3. No wipe planned - I know Sky already saw this in another thread but figured I'd put the answer here for anyone reading this thread. Fishing junk and clothes, personally. Yeah, the rank locks a pain, but I found a few items I like.
  4. It's how I make money, Sky. Only during the day and north of St Denis. Look for flocks, there are some on the ground but flocks are your big money.
  5. New update: "We appreciate all the continued feedback we are receiving on the Red Dead Online Beta. For players concerned about the potential for progress and stat resets, we currently do not have any plans to reset them as part of the Beta's rollout. We are currently still working on game stability and economy balancing for an update that we hope to release later this week. Please stay tuned for more news to come." Source: Rockstar's Twitter.
  6. The lack of the trapper and legendary animals really does bother me. My initial thought, before I saw the character generator and played RDO, was to make a Native American character who would primarily live in the wilderness, trading pelts and carcasses with the trapper in order to survive. From what Rockstar have said, it SEEMS to be the kind of idea they would encourage. "We want all the actions the player does to make sense", they want us to live in this world but this world feels so very less evolved than the single player world. Would adding some things to multiplayer mean looking at changes to make them fit? Sure. Otherwise you'd have people just camp the robbable homesteads, continually jumping the train, farming legendary animals et al, but even I in my completely non game related profession can think of ways to make those work in this regard. I want to live in this world, but I need the world to be livable. RDR2 I could and did play for weeks, ignoring the main storyline, just existing. Living. Providing. Let me do that with other people. Form relationships, rivalries, friendships. The promise is there, it is just how they deliver upon it.
  7. You can steal canoes off the coast of St Denis. I tried to steal a steamboat but there's no driving compartment. Tried swimming to the big one but got teleported to shore.
  8. Thanks to everyone who has participated in the Beta so far, we appreciate your help in testing the game! Your feedback from these early days will be instrumental in helping formulate updates to every aspect of the experience. Our current areas of focus include the in-game economy, which will require some additional balancing in order to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun, as well as some persistent bugs that are causing some players to be kicked from sessions. The game has been developed so that we will be able to quickly make any adjustments like these, and we plan to get updates out as early as the end of this week with more updates to come next week. Feedback from the community has been invaluable, and we will continue to keep you regularly updated as things progress. We hope you continue to play and enjoy the game, and please keep sending your feedback to reddeadonline.com/feedback.

Much like this text, copy / pasting may have been a bad idea!
  9. Shouldn't happen on your horse unless it respawns. The corpses disappearing is, in theory, a server clutter feature that is overturned. Hopefully they will lengthen the distance on body deshawn, especially at bandit camps.
  10. Okay few tips to make bird hunting north of St Denis work better for you. Varmint rifle everything. It will perfect the birds. Hug the shoreline up then come down the other side of the tracks going back. Eyes to the sky. This is the most important bit. Plucking a kill? Look to the sky. Individual birds are fine but it's the flocks you want. Kill a flock of herons, with a little luck on quality that's 10 Heron Plumes. 1.75 each, 17.50 for 10. Stick two perfects on your horse as a bonus. Even crows and ravens add up. Pelicans come in at 1.50 each feather, 15 for 10. Theres another one that comes in at 1.95 per feather if you get a real lucky flock. Can you play cross system on RDO? I'd be happy to show you the best spots. It does vary, but not to the point of that low. A bad turn in for me is $40ish.
  11. I play solo. I have also decided to wear a white coat, to signify my non griefing intentions! And waste some money.
  12. Sorry. Yes, I read your whole post. Yes, I read that your gun disappeared. I've played two characters to above level 15 and never had that happen. At the end of the day though, you want exploits. If you don't like the way the game is, wait till it releases, don't play the beta. Oh and don't try to act high and mighty when you are sitting there saying "Hey guys, how do I cheat? But don't judge me, yo."
  13. Yeah, that'll be it, Krooked. I just hit 'positive' honor by hunting (Skinning animals is really honorable, considering I shoot passerbys and loot them fairly often.) Suddenly I unlocked the "Gunslinger" path. Dammit. I want to be dishonorable! LET ME DAMMIT!
  14. Fairly sure there's the option, I'll log in and check. I know you can buy any of the camp upgrades with gold. I think the level 90 tent or what have you was 800 something gold when I looked last night. Okay, you were correct, it doesn't work with weapons until the rank is unlocked. When the rank is unlocked you can use gold instead of cash, ie, I can buy the Repeating Shotgun for $724, or 29 gold. Tents are definitely rank skippable but apparently weapons are not. So, that's something.
  15. You can use gold bars to purchase any $ item "early" I believe. So you can skip the rank requirement by paying real money, which would allow a level one character to use a repeating shotgun if they chose to purchase it with gold.
