Curious Expedition Wiki

Despite the description saying otherwise, the donkey can only carry 3 crates, unless the party includes an Animal Handler.

Donkeys are by far the worst pack animals an expedition can have and should be replaced any given chance. Only Raptors have lower Cargo Capacity, while having much better combat statistics.

  • Animal: Has no skills and can only be promoted through Alexandra David-Neel's Animal Whisperer perk.
  • Mount: Can be ridden to reduce the base sanity cost of travel. When mounted, gains an additional level 2 combat die and the Slow Mount perk at the cost of -1 total Cargo Capacity.
    • Combat dice given when mounting can not be used when over-encumbered.
