|Amethyst Mountain (2.7)/Mission 1: Find a Mate is currently under construction.
The information contained within it should not be presently considered fully accurate and/or complete. You can help byto it.
IntroductionYou are a two-year old gray wolf born in the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park. You learned the ways of the wolf in your birth pack. Now it's time for you to find a home and build your own family.
But first, you must learn to survive! Find and hunt elk. Once you've mastered that, you can begin your quest to find a mate. Visit the stranger wolf territories. Most wolves will defend their territory, but some are dispersal wolves like you, leaving their home territory in search of a mate. Remember: you won't meet such a wolf until you're a skilled hunter of elk.
As stated in the introductory blurb, earning experience as a wolf is a necessary goal in order to find and secure a mate. Becoming a master hunter of elk is not required as there are many different ways to earn experience points, but it is still a good idea to learn how to tackle elk effectively.
- Main article: Experience Points
There are various ways to gain experience besides mastery of elk hunting, from harassing predators to dominating or driving other wolves out of their territories.
Specimen wolves inhabit Amethyst Mountain, Druid wolves dominate Soda Butte Vista, and Slough wolves reside at the Grassy Plain site.
A Soul Mate
When you have found the dispersal wolf you would like to have your wolf bond with, enter the social arena and begin the interaction process. Three new interactions will become available that may only be used within a dispersal wolf encounter. In order to secure the wolf as your mate, there are three conditions that must be met.
- 1) The dispersal wolf must be of the opposite gender to your wolf. (If your wolf is male, it must be female. If your wolf is female, it must be male.) Otherwise, these interactions will not appear.
- 2) You must have killed at least 7 elk.
- 3) You must not already have a mate. If you do, the interactions won't appear if you encounter another dispersal wolf.
As soon as you're eligible to forge a bond with another wolf that meets these conditions, you'll have no problem securing a bond.
In order for the dispersal wolf to accompany you, you must literally win its heart in a sequence of five interactions. This goes as follows:
- Hello there!
- I like you
- Let's play!
- Let's start a pack!
- Let's start a pack!
Requesting that the dispersal wolf joins your pack twice is not an error; repeating the interaction is required. Any other interaction will remove one heart from the bar. Afterwards, he/she will join you and assist with hunting for the remainder of your time spent in Amethyst Mountain.
When you are ready to proceed to Slough Creek, save your game and return to the main menu (you can click 'New game' from the options interface to return to the main menu). Provided you have the latest version, the option to continue in Slough Creek will no longer be greyed out and you can load up any completed Amethyst Mountain save file.
- In the free game, players were forced to travel to each stranger wolf territory and encounter one wolf within each. This method is defunct as of 2.7.
