You can craft the Bear Claw Talisman in Red Dead Redemption II as early as Chapter 2, assuming you have all the ingredients below.
Obtaining this talisman early in the game will give you an advantage in combat and during your explorations.
Bear Claw Talisman Required Materials:
1x Quartz Chunk – You can obtain it by sending through the mail the location of a Dinosaur Bone to MacGuiness (A Test of Faith Stranger Mission). A single Dinosaur Bone location is enough, you don’t need all of them.
1x Legendary Bear Claw – Reward for killing the Legendary Bharati Bear.
How to Craft the Bear Talisman:
With all the materials in your inventory, visit a Fence and pay the shopkeeper who will craft the Bear Claw Talisman for you.
How to Use the Bear Claw Talisman:
Keep the Bear Claw Talisman in your inventory to activate its bonuses. This item decreased the Health Core draining speed by 10%.
Not equipping the talisman will not affect your attributes, as with all talismans in the video game developed by Rockstar Studios.
