It feels so good to have completed Encyclopedia of the Common Man

I spent the majority of my time on AC3 finishing this side quest today. Doctor Lyle took forever.!He kept alternating between reading his book and picking up herbs (so frustrating!). But it's done now. I look forward to hearing other people finishing this colossal grind of a quest

I didn't find it grindy at all. Just scanned the people as I did Homestead quests over time. I did run into the woodworker 2/3 glitch, but someone posted a fix for that, so I'm golden.

The feathers and almanac pages? That's grindy. Especially the pages - keep on getting screwed over by the wonky camera angle.

Lucky! I don't think I'll be able to get this one. I didn't have problems with the Woodworker (scanned and entry recorded), but the Farmers are my glitch. I've got 3/3 scanned of them, but it doesn't say they're recorded.

Anyone else having this issue with the Farmers?

Hmm well maybe grind was the wrong word. It sure was a pain though if you were going out of your way to get it done. Almost done with this awesome game...just the main story left (Sequence 10 onwards), multiplayer and the Completionist cheevo - shouldn't take long only a few frontiersman and one brawler challenge remaining.

The pages I found to be WAY easier when I realized that they follow a set path based on what direction you approach them from. Pick on direction to come from, and just get the path down. Then fast-travel to the nearest spot, and go again. Repeat until you get the buggers off your screen.

I do have to ask, though...

When you complete this, does it disappear off your list on the map screen?

I wonder this too, because mine doesn't (keep in mind I still have Completionist, which just unlocked for me).

It did not clear in my game, but it's likely that's because of the woodworker 2/3 glitch.

Yeah, but MY woodworker part shows 3/3, and that extra radial about it being all complete is filled in too...

Is THAT the glitch? I thought it was "it stuck at 2/3 and only showed 2/3 no matter what"...

I should start reading these glitch threads more closely, by which I mean "at all"...

The best way to make use of the time is to keep fast travelling in Homestead to scan activities, then during night time do all collectibles and side missions.

And avoid scanning during winter, as El the Tailor does nothing during winter, so kinda wasting time.

The moment hearing the achievement popping was surprisingly good, only surpassed by completing Completionist.

How do I avoid is all together? If its glitchy I would prefer to not touch it until its patched... Do I just avoid homestead missions? Or avoid talking to people after on my homestead?

Well I have the achievement and it hasn't cleared off the screen like the challenges did. Maybe I have to go to the logbook on the first floor of the manor for it to clear though?

If you want to avoid until the patch I would suggest you don't scan any of the people that have joined you whilst they are doing their daily activites in Homestead.

I've now finished the main story, and have only the farmers and innkeepers at 3/3. Woodworkers at 2/3. And the rest at 1/3 or even at 0/3, because, every time I come to see them, they do fucking nothing useful. Or an activity I already scanned. I spent 2-3 hours across the game on this and finally, I decided that spending another 5-6 hours or so for a mere 10G isn't worth it.

So I gave up on getting the full 1000G in the game because of this achievement. And also because of the Giant and the storm mission, I'm fed up of it.

It's doubtful that you are doing anything wrong, it is probably just glitched. Just wait for the patch this week and hope it fixes it.

I believe the log should disappear once you have successfully completed the EOTCM. The fact that it hasn't for you seems to indicate that you have run into the glitch. ... Try scanning Catherine churning butter. That sometimes fixes this glitch.
