I am honestly ??? at how legendary's spawn in free roam. I haven't had one spawn at all today, despite having the increased chance and actively patrolling and riding through areas they can spawn. I just... dunno.

Same here, I really wish Rockstar would have elaborated on how anything in this update works. I will roam around a few spots and get nothing at all, use the pheromones and get nothing, so what the hell? I got lucky today with the legendary cougar.. but it's hard to know, with 25(?) other people in the server, are they getting killed so often that we don't even get a chance? Is their spawn rate so incredibly rare? Are there set times for them to spawn? I'm sure people will figure it out, but it's kind of frustrating the whole update is centered around these beasts but you can only see them in the Harriet missions reliably.

I'm also sh*tting bricks that I'll have to PvP over a legendary animal at some point. I've already been griefed by having one of the rare animals I was sedating (a moose) killed by someone who was at a level where he knew exactly what he was doing.

so how do I, a rank 2 naturalist, make some role xp BESIDES studying the animals, which is my only role xp income right now

Get twitch prime and link accounts. You get enough xp to go up several levels,  and level 5 opens up legendaries. Also,  free animal from poacher missions from the woman

I haven't really been paying attention while playing but when you take a sample do you automatically study it if you haven't studied it yet?  You don't have to study it first, then sedate/sample it, correct?

The Poacher Missions are available at rank 1.

Look at the bottom right corner for the button prompts. The top one will be a Poacher Mission.

Has it been figured out whether they'll spawn in Legendary Bounty missions where we can skin, such as Yukon Nik, yet?

Not sure, if already common knowledge, but you get 50 role XP for "studying" the animals (L1) before taking any action.

 

If you dont do that, you wont get these 50 role XP, they are lost.

preface: i haven't played since christmas and contemplating purchasing ps+ for the first time in 8 months

 

this makes or breaks the role for me

 

can you sedate animals without machine gunning them with a varmint rifle

 

like i'm really not down with spraying 10 rounds of the incorrect caliber into an elk or jeez a predator of some sort i'm not trying to piss off

 

are there sedative arrows or something

 

imma put it this way, sedative varmint rounds should be used on gosh darn varmints

 

there should be sedative repeater and rifle rounds for a more ethical and appropriate amount of rounds for larger or more dangerous animals, is there such a thing

 

idk if this bothers anyone else from an ethics standpoint but it's the same concept as using the correct caliber for perfect pelts how does that just get thrown out the window if the ammunition is designed to sedate rather than kill

What's the cooldown time between legendary animal missions? Seems like that's the only way to get a legendary fast.

If we're getting into the ethics of hunting, the way hunting in game works, with headshots being key to pelt quality preservation, would be viewed as unethical by most real life hunters.

 

Typically in real life you'd aim for center mass, side on, as there's a bigger chance of hitting the lungs and heart for a quick, clean kill. 

 

No one wants to take the jaw off a deer trying for a headshot and have it run for a mile into the forest bleeding out.

Are the new saddlebags worth it? I thought Collector's was the best?

 

It would be nice in the game if it told you.

 

-----------------

 

Poacher missions are fun, because you can shoot the lock with the Varmint/sedate ammo and then pepper whatever comes out to sample it ;)

Did a cougar, grizzly and a couple buffalo that way.

 

Had a legendary Elk mission that way too, so it did not get away like when I had to chase it down. It was still way up north, but it was in the locked

poacher box and I had to kill poachers. So shot lock with varmint/sedate, then shot it up as it ran out. I hate how the mission ends when you sample it, though,

so I can't revive it and then take a photograph (which is about the easiest time to do that.)

 

----------------------

 

Saw on reddit someone said BigPaw saddlebag looks like a big paw, but only holds 5 outfits/hats unlike Collector's that holds 7 ....

Rockstar, taking steps backwards again. It is kind of like how they have the Nogagcheheskeha3ez (SP?) saddle, which is fantastic, then have

cool looking saddles that are not as good from roles.

I’ve found that if you manage sedative headshots on animals of a certain size, they tend to go down quicker. Usually a whitetail buck needs quite the sh*t ton of rounds, but if you get it in the head 5 times, the red X shows up faster.

There's a legendary buffalo mission like that too, but the mission makes you walk up to the door and hold triangle to open it.

 

Then you've got an angry bullet sponges buffalo charging you along with waves of poachers shooting you.

I did the free roam event where you have to tag animals. We were in the Tumbleweed area. I ended up with samples of a cougar and the legendary Maza cougar. I did not encounter either of these myself during the mission, but I saw a red area on the mini map. So I’m thinking if any player in the event takes a sample everyone gets it. Not sure if it’s meant to be that way or if it’s a bug. I don’t know if I got any other samples from the event because I already had a bunch from that area, but I know for sure I didn’t have the cougar or legendary cougar sample before the event.

If you didn't know by the way, you can actually use those legendary missions to hunt. You can either kill the animal or sedate them, you can't do both, which I imagine is why it ends once you've done one or the other.

The ones you get from Harriet? You can kill those legendary animals and skin them for Gus? If so that's awesome. Finally got my role to 20 last night, really happy I can now defend myself from 5+ wolves again.. f*cking unreal Harriet.

Yea, you can kill the animals in those missions from Harriet, skin and sell the pelts to Gus.

 

However, so far, every piece of legendary clothing is a jacket that is identical to the others except it has a hood themed after the animal the pelt belongs to.

 

Can't help but think this update should have been delayed (yes, delayed) so they could add way more clothing to Gus if I'm going to be brutally honest. I enjoy the role a lot, I enjoy the missions, but I am very demotivated to play it after seeing how lacking the rewards are.

Awesome, thanks for that info, and I can't help but agree. Incredibly disappointing to hear that these legendary clothing sets are identical, or most of them anyway. I think a lot of stuff from this update is pretty undercooked. The role has some good features, the pass has some good items, Gus is awesome and all but it just shows that this pandemic seriously dumped on their workflow. We all kind of figured, but it would have been nice for them to say something at all about it. I don't play GTAO anymore but I certainly hope for those folks that the "biggest update ever" isn't like our "massive update"  lmao.

 

Glad people are enjoying this update though, makes me wish Gus/Harriet were separate roles but I can see why they did it this way. Hopefully there are some decent items hidden away for the lame limited clothing rotation that will be in the catalogue and for Gus craft us too.

Yeah, there's really only the Maerbay coat and  Woodcote poncho that I'm interested in getting from Gus. That's hardly the most rewarding haul from a DLC.

 

Hopefully there will be plenty more trapper style clothing added over the drip feed.

Does anyone know how to get the Vitalism Studies Pamphlet from Harriet? I have an offer for this item but can't find it (it requires to be over level 5 Naturalist, which I am).

Quoting myself here, but I think that there is no Vitalism Studies Pamphlet at the moment (double-checked everything we can buy from Harriet and it's not there), might be something they will add in the next weeks.

Still no legendary animals on free roam after 15h playing since update, if they are so rare don't worth it spend time checking the respawn points. Even with the skill page that increases my chances of spawning them.
