    Use the collectible from your inventory and it'll poof, unless you've already used that collectible then it's vendor trash. After you get the collectibles of that set then you'll get the achievement for it.

    Some of the achievements will grant you special dyes for your armor.

    One of the things I kept meaning to get around to was asking about collectables. I have a few but there's no option to use them was a bit confused by what you meant when you wrote use them from your inventory.

    For the PC in order to register the trophy for your collection you have to click and use it. From what I understand on the console version you just have to pick it up for it to register.

    Under achievements there is a Trophy tab - here you can see all the collectibles and fish you have found/caught. The collections will give you rare dyes, and fishing will eventually give you a title (Master Angler), on completion.

    So do NOT sell these items. Double-click them, and they will automatically disappear and become highlighted under the appropriate collection. If the item does not disappear when you click it, it means you have already added this item to the collection (but always check under said collection before you sell!). Trust me, down the road (when you start running out of achievements) you will kick yourself for deleting these items :wink:

    (The trophies that are "collectible" are always found under "Consumables" in your inventory. Trophies found under "Misc" are usual just rewards from quests, that have a visual effect when used, and these are reusable.)

    Hope this helps! :smile:

    I'm on the PS4 and don't really know how to use them. Can't bank them either. The only option I got is to destroy them.
    Am I missing something here? :|

    Check your achievements Trophy tab. Do the collectibles in your inventory show as being met in achievements? Some console users have reported just having the item in inventory is enough to register the achievement. Unlike on PC, console users have no way to USE collectibles. If you find your collectibles are not registering, file a complaint.....it means console users have a bug.

    That's great to know information. I wondered the same thing many times myself. I've been holding onto them in case there was a trophy room in a house DLC like Skyrim had on the Hearth Fire I think it was called. There are several things they aren't real clear on when it comes to in game info.

    Some are bugged badly. I couldn't click or do anything with it. Deleted it because that's what a lot say... and I didn't get credit.

    I cried for like... 30 minutes.

    Then my daughter whose 1 picked on me.

    I feel your pain. Still got mine though, just to make you feel better.

    I'd like to know more about the blue skull that binded to me upon pick up :/
    What's the matter? Did somebody steal your sweet roll?

    It's one of the collectible items people in this thread are referring to...Check your achievements under collectibles and it should be listed under one of the categories. Finding all of the items for each category results in an achievement with an associated armor dye.

    Make sure the skull is showing up as obtained before you sell or delete it...Seems like there might big a bug on consoles for some people where the collectibles are registering.

    For me on the PS4 - I have the collectibles automatically being added to the achievement/trophy list. I have then been able to destroy or sell them without any issues. This has been my experience on the PS4 only.

  • abirdman24
    I'm in the Xbox one and checked, is automatically being added to achievement list also
