This page contains a walkthrough of the Keeping Up with the Yakmels side quest, during which you lend a helping hand to Cooper and repair a damaged fence. The task is easy and the rewards for completing it are relatively high, so you shouldn't skip it.
Quest time limit: none
Reward: 500 EXP, 120 Gols, 15 Reputation, Relationship: Cooper 15, Elsie 10, Mabel 5, Bread x2
Starting the quest
To start the quest, you need to head east of the Wandering Y Ranch (we've marked exact location on the screenshot above). Talk to Cooper, who, as it turns out, has a lot to say.
You can interrupt his long-winded speech, but we recommend waiting until the end, since it will earn you an additional 5 Relationship Points.
It's time to gather the materials required to repair the fence. You will need the following:
- Bronze Bars x3 - can be crafted with the Furnace with 9 Copper Ore and 6 Tin Ore in total (both of these materials can be found in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins).
- Thick Rope x2 - can be crafted with the Worktable with 8 Plant Fibers in total (you can obtain these by cutting down nearby shrubs).
Once you have obtained the required materials, return to where you spoke with Cooper and repair the damaged fence.
Talk to Cooper
The task's final objective is to tell Cooper about the repairs you've made. You can find him at the Wandering Y Ranch, a few steps east of the fence. The man will appreciate your work and the quest will be complete
