Here are the best things to bring to Roots Of Pacha in the beginning!
In Roots of Pacha, the only way to get money is to help the clan, though it’s probably more like getting good points with everyone. Even so, if you want to make the Clan and its members like you and do things for you, you should probably start out by giving them some good stuff.
Even if you want to get as many Contribution points as possible, the best things to give will be goods from the late game. In the beginning, you need to be careful about what you give and how you spend your time to get the most out of every day.
Sun Dried Fish
Fish are valuable on their own, but you’ll get the Solar Dryer early on in the game, so you might as well use it. Standard fish meals don’t give you that many Contribution points with the Clan, which is likely to make you want to keep them and eat them to keep you going during the day.
But sun-dried fish give you a lot more Contribution points, and since it’s a quiet processing method, you can easily keep going and go back to fishing to get more fish. They only take three in-game hours to dry, so if you keep an eye on your Solar Dryer, you can easily get a lot of batches out during the day.
Sun Dried Fruit
Contribution points can be earned by giving people raw food, which is fine, but it could be better. With the Solar Dryer you get from Tare after the Rite of Passage or one you make later, it’s easy to make as much sun-dried food as you want.
After that, you can put them in the clan’s “Contribution Pot.”
In the beginning of Roots of Pacha, you’ll probably only be able to get Wild Tomatoes and Pomegranates. Pomegranates are easy to find in the forest every few days, but Wild Tomatoes can be grown in large quantities, dried, and contributed for at least 15 Contribution points each, which is a pretty good gain from their 9-point raw form.
Wild Boar Fur
Animal goods are one of the best ways, especially early on, to earn Contribution points. But before you can get goods from animals, you have to collect them and connect with them.
This is easy to do, especially after you have built your first Animal Shed.
Like in Stardew Valley, if you ask animals back to the clan to live with you, they will always give you high-quality goods as long as they are well-fed and happy. When you first start playing, you’ll want to get a lot of Wild Boars.
You should be able to cut them every few days and collect their fur, which you can then sell for 99 Contribution points each. Since the small Animal Shed can hold up to four animals, you could earn almost 400 Contribution points every few days with very little work.
Oregano and Datura Flowers are easy to find in the main area. You won’t find them in large quantities, but they’re like free Contribution points. Each piece of oregano is worth 12 Contribution points, and each Datura flower is worth 20 Contribution points.
Both can be found near the starting hut and the main fire, but there are only two Datura flowers while there are four bunches of Oregano. So, if you only have time to find and pick one of them, go for the oregano.
You can also start picking mushrooms if you leave the New Land and go into the forest, which should be easy to do after the Rite of Passage.
There are two kinds of mushrooms: red mushrooms and brown mushrooms. Realistically, there isn’t much difference between the two of them besides how they look. Both of them give eight contribution points, which is one of their best uses early in Tunnel Rush.
Donating a single pine cone to the clan addition isn’t worth the trouble. However, if you spend a day gathering them in the forest, you’ll see a big difference when you have a lot of them. Every tree will drop one pine cone, but you can usually pick up around 30 of them.
Pine cones alone can give you 60 points every few days, since each one is worth two points.
This isn’t the best way to make money, but it doesn’t take much energy, and you’ll probably be going into the forest every few days to get seeds for your plants and get in touch with different animals anyway. Aside from that, pine cones don’t have many uses, which makes them a great thing to give away. It helps that this is a pretty relaxing thing to do in the most beautiful part of Roots of Pacha.
Around the middle of your first Spring in the New Land, you should be able to get to the beach. Make sure to go every few days, or even every day if you can, because the real Contribution points are in shells.
It’s not clear whether the Pachans will like them because they’re new or because they’ll be useful to the clan, but either way, they’ll be worth the work.
You can find the Mussel Shell, the Blue Shell, the Pink Shell, and the Nacre. You probably won’t find the Nacre, but it’s worth 80 Contribution points if you do.
The Blue Shell is worth the least, with 12 points. The Pink Shell is worth 16 points, and the Mussel Shell is worth 24. So, if you need to get rid of something to make room for something else, choose the Mussel Shell.
