    Ah, fair enough. I usually only start the games when I have everything set up first or if I really want to play the SP of a game. I'd recommend it to anyone to fully plan out their boosts before just starting a game.



    I obviously wouldn't have started it if there was any sign of the online not working properly, but there was nothing. The challenges stopped working a while back and returned after a while, hopefully they come back and I can get them done.

    That's why I would get it on the day it'd test the game :P.


    Also it doesn't automatically synch the game on the PS3. Then again I don't really see why you would get all but 3 MP trophies in an MP that takes about 4hours to finish, no offence. 

    Because the others require a boosting partner. I got those trophies the day I got the game, I couldn't find a boosting partner that day.

    That's why it's always a good thing to just test a game on an alt for 5 minutes before starting it on your main account. I've been doing that for about 6 years now, not quite sure why people wouldn't do that when they are about to start a really old game :P.


    Also aren't the trophy related online features and the MP the first thing you should take care of?  I know you got the platinum done, but I'm talking about the people that just started the SP of the game and dropped it.

    Looks like I got the daily challenge trophy the day before they turned them off, everything looked normal when I did it, so playing on an alt would have done nothing.


  4. @olivetheturtle Out of interest, how long are you spending in any given area? I found both of my moose in the area above Brandywine Drop, in the wooded area next to the house with the stranger mission, but they weren't there when I arrived. I spent a few minutes there before a moose spawned, I know I didn't miss them on my way in. Maybe try hanging around an area for a bit longer if you're still having trouble.

    Before I start another thread I will ask here.


    I still need the catahoula cut and the siberian husky.


    Any tips?

    Siberian Husky is at Manzanita Post near Beecher's Hope. I'm pretty sure I saw a Catahoula Cur in Rhodes when I went there to study the donkey, might have been another breed, but it's worth checking.

    On the topic of dogs, the last animal I needed to study was the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, I couldn't find the fisherman that has this dog with him in the videos I could find, but there was one sitting down at Flatneck Station.

    I have seen plenty of Small alligators and Egrets in Lagras (swamp) region.

    I've been searching the swamps for about 3 hours now, no luck so far with either. Plenty of the other two Egrets and thousands of adult Alligators, just nothing that I need :(


    Edit: Horse got turned into a paste by a train while I was looking for a pigeon and I had to reload a save from an hour ago. There was a snowy egret right next to me. Just need the small alligator now I think. Does anyone know if they're just in the spawn pool for regular alligators, so I just need to refresh the spawns until one appears?

    Ok, turns out the small alligators aren't called American Alligator (Small) when you're looking through your binoculars. I found one by the train track out of Saint Denis where you catch the legendary lake sturgeon :D

    Is that the same thing as a mule? Because I've seen one of those just hanging around Emerald Ranch a few times when I've been over there, unless it was a donkey but I can't remember. It was one or the other.

    Mule and Donkey are separate. I'm just going to wait until I've got the other animals I need and go ranch to ranch hoping one spawns. I hope I haven't missed the trophy because of something so stupid.

    I'm also having trouble finding a small alligator, I only have that and the snowy egret left to skin.

    Even without the boosted crown rates, since there's two of them, wouldn't they each have less health making them faster to farm than an investigation with only one Kirin?


    I don't think you can get gold crowns from low rank monsters, so I wouldn't suggest wasting your time with the event.

    where does bagelgoose spawn in the effluvia event.  He's the only one I need besides large radobaan but every time I spawn in he isn't there in the beginning

    You have to kill a monster first. There can only be 3 monsters in the map at once, so just kill great girros and wait a minute or two and bazelgeuse will spawn.

    yeah so I am thinking we just have to do elder dragons + black diablos maybe


    I'm going to finish up a few games and then start farming the elder dragons and black diablos, then I'll start doing elder recess and get as many crowns as I can before the spring festival. I missed the ancient forest event and only have about half of those crowns, so I'll wait to do those.

    Damn it, I knew I should've farmed elder dragons first. I spent about 10 hours trying to get a giant gold crown Odogaron, oh well. They'll almost definitely have an elder recess event at some point, they might even include it in the spring festival.


  12. All event quests will be available from April 6th to April 20th in the Spring blossom festival seasonal event. They only showed the crown events that we've already had in the live stream, but I missed the Ancient Forest event, so it'll cut down the grind by quite a bit. Perfect opportunity to get 28 relatively easy crowns if you've yet to start grinding for them.

    Was it 15 min or 1 faint? I guess gold slots is what counts..

    7 star, 15 minute time limit, max player limit of 2, faint limit of 2. It might have something to do with the unusual conditions, 2 faints might increase the chance just as much as 1 faint, because it's not the norm. It could honestly be completely random, we won't know unless the strategy guide sheds some light on it.

    Those normally come with 8 tries, didn't hear anyone getting crowns from those investigations.

    I just had an 8 attempt Lavasioth investigation, rewards are 1 x Bronze and 3 x Gold, I got a Giant Gold Crown on my second attempt and a Mini Gold Crown on my 5th attempt.
