Fallout 76 | OT | Almost Heaven, Waste Virginia

It’s easy to miss, or someone might have already taken it before you get there, but there’s a full chess set on the second floor of the building you go into looking for the password in the new quest line.

Question about the update. Will they be adding more quests and items over time. The trailer showed a bunch but only thing I think we got was the brewing stuff.
The brewing system was the first of several planned releases. The Fallout 76 website has a detailed list of what will be arriving in weeks to come, and the dates to expect them.

I did the new event quest a couple times but I'm way too impatient of a person to do more. 5 boring fetch quests and the slowest escort mission in all of history is not something I can handle. I don't want to be a hater but this event is big nah for me.

How often does this Fasnacht quest restart?
Is there a worldwide notification if I go fuck off for a bit?

Edit: An Hour it seems.

Is it better with friends or playing alone?
How hostile are people typically?

Looking at the PS4 version
I like both alone and with a friend. Sometimes it’s nice to have to depend on myself only as it makes it more tense but it’s also fun to let things get really crazy with a friend.

People are not hostile in general. I have heard tales of griefing but only encountered it once. Most people seem helpful to at worst ignore you in my experience (PS4). People also love to help out new players. So far I’d say the playerbase is one of the best things about this game.

Played through both of the new quests last night. The brewing one is interesting enough but just a bit one-note, I guess the more important thing is the long term crafting possibilities from the brewing station.

I then did the parade event once, and it was probably the most people I've ever seen in one place, lol. Even more than the couple blast zones I did early on. The quest is kinda plain but I got a "Two Shot The Dragon" from the boss at the end, which I guess is supposed to be some sort of boss killer.

Obviously, the updates aren't super fleshed out at this point but it's nice to finally have at least a couple new things to look at and do.

Really annoying, I’ve gotten all the masks that are confirmed to be actually dropping, the beret, nearly all the plans, if not all of them, I’ll have to double check how many I have tomorrow, but I still haven’t gotten either recipe, and those were what I wanted most from the event.

Heh, I have both the recipes but I really want htat death mask and the ribbons poll (one I know is really rare). Btw, did you get the death mask, it's one of the rare ones they were debating on if it drops at all.

The new quest was short, not bad but I guess since it introduces a new crafting system it's ok. Gotta do the parade event still. I do hope the next quest series added is more meaty.

The teaser video showed new underground areas, what is that tied to for this event?

I’ve only encountered 2 people who attacked me for no reason and that’s with over 176 hours. Most players are nice and just wave to you or wanna look at what you have.

Just yesterday I saw a lower level player and he asked for food and water. Gave him everything I had and even a legendary weapon I didn’t want.

No, I think the death mask is one of the ones that’s not legitimately dropping yet. Finally got the donut recipe today, now I just need the sausage recipe and three more plans. If you’re on PC I have an extra ribbon pole plan.

Only negative with the event for me is I’m starting to notice people just camping the Sloth. They’re killing it before I even see it so don’t get anything.

Where can you get plans for power armor? I’ve been selling a bunch of stuff and have 12k caps but really don’t wanna waste 5k on mods.

Power armour is mainly found around the map but Excavator is a quest and so is Ultracite power armour. X01 is rewarded for an end game quest (no spoilers)

The sun, jester, old man winter, skull, and goblin masks. Bethesda says the drop rate is working as intended, but as far as I know only one person has confirmed getting one of the rare masks from this event.

I met some one who said he had seen a few people with them but I have never seen them (other than on the robots) myself. It's possible Bethesda really did want them to be super rare. Good thing for me there is only one of those I really wanted (the skull/death mask that is on the musician). I suppose I wouldn't have minded getting the jester as well. The only thing I think I really want (that seems realistically possible to get) left is the plans for the streamer pole (I don't know the name but it has pole and streamers in the name). I even got the effigy :).

I bought the game a few days ago on a whim, and just had some fun in the parade event. Helped everyone kill a big ass mutant sloth and got tons of loot!

This is probably the comfiest setting of all the modern fallouts I have to say, but I still can't get over the lack of NPCs though, especially considering how much VA there is with the recording tapes on every other dead settler you can find.

Anyone on ps4 that can make any of these alcohols: Nukacola dark, lead champagne mimosa, tick blood tequila sunrise, tick blood tequila margarita? I can supply the tick blood tequila for the two that require it and I have a few of the lead champagnes for the mimosa. I can make quite a few alcohols excluding those, the lead champagne, the red ant lager, the White Russian, and any of the moonshines :( if you want that to trade or I have plenty of caps too (prefer to pay caps honestly).

I’m trying to get the drink 25 different alcohols weekly and unless biv gives me a few new recipes I am not going make it. And biv seems happy to keep giving me recipes I already know. I just need two of the ones listed.

I can make nuka-cola dark and tequila sunrise (you will have to supply the tequila). The tequila sunrise makes 3 drinks, so if I could keep one for myself to drink, there's no need to pay.

I have the recipe for both the Tequila Sunrise and the Tequila Margarita. I'd need the Tequila for either, and I'd need 3 Corpse Seed juices for the latter. I don't need caps or a trade. CorianderV on PSN.

Heh, thanks guys. I’ll probably take up ash droid on his offer because I only have two tequilas at the moment and I need to drink one so I don’t have to try to find enough flux to make another with his nor do I have corpse seed juice nor know how to get that.

I'll be available most of today, so just contact me on PSN or let me know here when is good for you. Also, if I can scrape together the ingredients for tick blood tequila, would you be willing to make a couple for me?


I think you get corpse seed juice from the "Death Blossoms" event that rarely happens in the northern part of the Forest. I've only seen it going a few times.

Yeah... the hardest two ingredients for the tequala are crimson flux and tick blood (hell, crimson flux at least you just have to wait for some one to bomb the bottom right part of the map to get the ingredients to make it but I don't know where to find tick blood consistantly other than the tea party event).

I'll send you a friend request when I'm on (hint, it will have my user name from here on it followed by some numbers. I just don't feel as comfortable posting my username right on the forum).

Whoa whoa whoa, I’ve just been making whiskey this whole time. Biv gives you other recipes? Only time I’ve gone back is for the corn and grain nearby.
Yeah, every 24 hours (seems actually a little less ;) ) he will give you a quest. That quest will always give you a recipe (though it is not guarenteed to always give you a new one, even if you don't know many recipes yet). He finally gave me a new one today (red ant lager). And the only useful to me beer (I'm so sick of beer. I really want the moonshine recipes).

So how's the game after this update?
I want to try it at some point and wonder if it's worth it now already.
Well I have loved it from day one but now the game can be got for under a tenner digital on both pc and x1 it's a steal.
The current content has daily and weekly stuff to do plus the road map for this year looks like its slightly geared to high level players,so you have time to jump in and get the base games quests done to allow you to hit level 50.
