Rumors Abound in Annesburg About the Mysterious Shadow Buck

New Sighting Mission, Buck Vitalism Studies, a new Hardcore Series and more

Rumors are aswirl in Annesburg about an unusual buck with an entirely black coat and uniquely dark set of antlers. Like all deer, this buck typically avoids humans and may flee if disturbed, but beware – the Legendary Shadow Buck has also been known to aggressively charge at those who pose a threat. Poachers, drawn by the creature’s mythical appeal, have set up camps along its trail. Take care when tracking and approaching.

All Naturalists can launch this new Sighting Mission by visiting Harriet at her shop.

Should you successfully sedate and sample the Shadow Buck, you’ll receive Rewards for a free Vest of your choice and 100 rounds of Sedative Ammo for your next expedition; kill and skin the animal to receive a Reward for 100 rounds of Express Repeater Ammo.


A man of few convictions, Gus Macmillan is uniquely positioned to help you satisfy your penchant for wearing fine furs and trophies. Bring the Shadow Buck’s pelt to his store to unlock the Shadow Coat for purchase. If you decide to craft it, you’ll also receive a Reward for a free Bandolier of your choice.


Science is oftentimes stranger than fiction. After the recent discovery of a new herb, Harrietum Officinalis, Miss Davenport believes she may have uncovered a way to experience the life of a humble Buck. Naturalists who follow the steps in Harriet’s gratis Buck Vitalism Studies Pamphlet can discover how to have this truly out-of-body experience, and also receive a Reward for a free Treasure Map.

Naturalists must be Rank 5 or above to inquire about Harriet’s knowledge of Vitalism Studies.
