So how can you obtain the Mayor Setter Charm in Alan Wake 2? First things first, if you’re someone who loves completing in-game achievements, this charm is the must-have element to obtain the Rustic Charm Achievement.

You’ve got to play detective and track down some campaign posters in Bright Falls and Watery areas.

Your adventure will take you through some places and uncover these posters. The final piece of the puzzle is in the Valhalla Nursing Home – this is where you’ll find the last poster you need.

Once you’ve checked out all six locations, you’re all set to meet the star of the show – Mayor Setter. After your mini scavenger hunt, you can head to Watery to meet the charming candidate. Meeting him doesn’t just get you the Mayor Setter Charm; you’ll also unlock the ‘The Nice Things in Life‘ trophy and the ‘Rustic Charm‘ achievement we talked about.

So, in a nutshell, the Mayor Setter Charm isn’t just a simple collectible; it’s very useful in your game’s tale. It adds an extra layer to your exploration and makes sure you’re not missing out on any of the hidden areas and elements. But it doesn’t show everything on the map; only Saga, our charm-collecting hero, gets to use it. For Alan, he’s on his own when it comes to finding goodies.
