Minor Spoilers: Miguel Cordona and the lost diamonds

#1 Posted by Anund (940 posts) -

Last night I talked to Miguel Cordona again after getting the Kingpin on our side of the conflict. He was very impressed with my efforts and entrusted me to find his secret stash of diamonds hidden in a shed near Cambria. "I trust you not to sell them for profit", he tells me. Great, I'm a trustworthy guy. Except four (real) days ago I stumbled on that stash of diamonds by accident and sold them for profit...

Does anyone know if this quest is important?

I haven't gotten it yet, but I sold the diamonds, as well. I needed that $40k!

Should have known is was a trap.

@Anund: Wow there is like no way most players won't find those diamonds at the start of the game, searching every nook and cranny of the map is just something you do in these games. And at the start is when you want the cash, plus the game gives you no reason not to sell them. Dick move game. Dick move.

By the way which diamonds are those, because i found 2 different stashes early on one as a stack of 5 and also a single unit of "perfect" diamonds, something like that?

I take it I should save those? I've only played maybe a few hours and found those and thought yes free 40k. However my merchant didn't have 40k at the time so I was going to hang out to them. However since they are "named" I figured they may be used as a quest. Anyone know if that 40k is more useful than what you get from completion?

I sold them to the guy in cambria, he has enough $. You can always buy them back later. I needed the money to get my lynx merc, and now that im rolling in dough, I could just buy them back (although I haven't received the quest to get them yet).

I already sold 1 of them before reading this. Figured, fuck it and sold the rest, the merchant in Cambria has like 90k. The money boost in early game is super helpfull, only 3 days in.

@raza: Sorry man it's been almost a week of real time since i found them, if memory serves they are pretty much in the first mission after the airport or second at most. Just move your squad past any identifiable map objects, open any containers they spot.
