Duchesses and other Animals Starting Location
Mid-Chapter 4, we have the opportunity to meet another unique Stranger. He resides in a Growing House behind the Blue Hotel north of Saint Denis. This man by the name of Algernon Wasp is looking for some exotic things, mainly different Orchids and Birds Plumes.
He will hand you a list with four things he needs. When obtained and returned, this will happen four more times.
The ingredients are scattered around a lot – mainly the eastern half of the map. If you happen to find some of the things he wants in upcoming parts of this mission, be sure to collect them already – this will save lots of time.
Generally, it is a good idea to press + at all times when you are searching an area for the required materials. This Eagle Vision will highlight plants and animals in your surroundings with some sort of glow- and particle-effect.
Refer to the Exotics Locations Guide which shows where to find all the exotics for the 5 requests.
Return the Exotics to Algernon Wasp
After each set of exotics, you must return to the quest giver Algernon Wasp to get the next exotics quest. After all 5 quests the “Exotics” get checked off from the Collectibles in the 100% Completion Checklist.
This concludes the “Duchesses and other Animals” Stranger Mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). For all other Stranger Missions check out the full Red Dead Redemption 2 Stranger Missions Walkthrough.
