Pioneer Trail Gold Rush Stories: Everything you need to know

As part of the launch of the Gold Rush in Pioneer Trail (that started with the appearance of the Railroad on the side of our Homesteads), there's now a new five-part goal series that add to the Gold Rush storyline. Of course, these goals are called the Gold Rush Stories, and they are available for users level 13 or higher. First things first, you'll need to place the Supply Outpost on your Homestead. It's a small building that does require any building, so just place it in a far-off corner and you'll be fine. From there, get ready to help your friends on the Homestead tell their stories about the Gold Rush.

Rusty - Success Story!
  • Sell 15 Adult Oxen
  • Craft 4 Tuxedos
  • Outfit Rusty the Prospector

To help each of these characters, you'll need to craft or otherwise collect a series of items via the Supply Outpost. For Rusty, for instance, you'll need to craft some Provisions, craft a Fancy Wallet and collect some Assorted Shoes and Stylish Suspenders with your friends' help. For helping Rusty, you'll receive 250 XP, 200 coins and 5 Blooming Agave.

As you complete these goals, you'll need to ask for crops from the free gifts page, or purchase new items from the store. You'll also have a chance of completing the Headin' West Collection to receive a Saguaro Cactus and 25 Food for turning it in. We'll make sure to let you know when or if more Gold Rush-centric features launch in the game, so keep checking back with us!
