Stardew Valley
« on: January 02, 2017, 09:03:14 AM »
I tried to update my axe to copper by going in the mines.  However, even after I cleared the first path with a cherry bomb, I couldn't get past Dwarf.  At how many hearts will he let me through.

Since I had that problem in the mine, I went to he blacksmith, and bought enough copper and coal to make a furnace and enough copper to update my axe.  However, the furnace wouldn't work, and the blacksmith seemed to think I wanted to sell my copper -- so now, I don't have any.

Therefore, does anyone have tips about how to upgrade tools to copper?

I did look at Carl's Stardew Valley Guide, but my game seemed to ignore those instructions --- or maybe I missed a little step.

Another little thing: Does that elevator door in the "entry" room of the mine ever open?  How?

I'm not sure what you mean by "getting past the Dwarf." You've found the Dwarf and now you can visit him. I think you have to be able to understand Dwarvish before you can buy anything, though.

You can start using the elevator once you get to level 5 of the mine. To reach level 5, use the ladder at the right. As you break rocks and defeat monsters, other ladders will open up for you. You can then take the elevator to any level you've reached ending in 0 or 5. For example, if you've reached level 26, you can go to 25.

Once you have a furnace, you can make a copper bar with 5 pieces of copper and 1 piece of coal. To get a copper axe, you need to have 5 copper bars and some money -- I think $2000, but don't remember. As long as the bars and money are in your possession, you don't have to give Clint anything, just choose the upgrade tool option and pick the axe (or pickaxe for mining).

Like MarianT said, there isn't anything behind the dwarf.  Once you find the four dwarf scrolls and donate them to the library collection, you'll be able to talk to him and buy items from him.

Stardew Valley is hard, isn't it?  There isn't much of an in-game tutorial for it.  I didn't know Carl had a guide for Stardew Valley, but I have often used the Stardew Wiki to help me figure out things. Here's the link: http://stardewvalleywiki.com/Stardew_Valley_Wiki

Carl has a great guide to Stardew Valley.  :) I really love this game. It is so well done.

I found the ladder, and my character successfully made 5 copper bars.  I think I want to get a silo first, then upgrade tools.  However, the furnace works, so I have a choice.
Can you get the 20,000G chicken coop with self feeding at first, or is that an upgrade.  I have almost enough for the best one.  My character has 4 hearts with Elliot, and I want her to marry him.  He loves duck feathers, so I need to eventually get the upgraded chicken coop.

@coolsim9999999, you have to start with the cheapest coop and then upgrade. Duck feathers are pretty rare, though. It might be easier to give him 2 presents a week of something he likes rather then trying to get something he loves. Once you get a crabpot, you can start catching lobsters for him -- I know he loves those.

O.K.  I will get the cheapest coop.  I have a ton of crocuses and an amethyst, so 2 presents a week is do-able.  I may have a tulip or a parsnip still.  I guess it will just take a little longer to get to 10 hearts with stuff he likes, rather than loves.

I heard that you need a silo before a coop.

I also have money and 5 copper bars to upgrade my axe, at least.  Now, I know how to get more copper bars.

I know it will be slower, but the slimes don't really come up to level 1 of the mine :P.

I married Elliot in one of my saves too! Use pomegranates. Plant a few trees and come autumn you'll have a year's supply of his favourite fruit. Plus they increase in quality each year, so the earlier you plant them the better!

Side note, has anyone else tried slime farming? It's not remotely profitable but it makes me happy for some reason. Initially I bred them to drop iridium ore but now I think I'll try for amethysts (married Abigail, they're her favourite). Pleasantly coordinated picture from early on:

Ausette --- Thanks, I have 2 pomegranate trees now and 1 duck feather, as well as all 4 gold tools and upgraded coop and barn.

By any chance, does the traveling cart sell peaches?  I planted all of the other saplings, but forgot that one.  I'm going to plant it now, actually, but I'll have to wait a year for it to produce peaches, and I want to finish the bundle.

I have to get 3 more fish and a frozen tear to finish all the bundles for the community center, and I have 2 questions.

1. Is it easy to find a frozen tear?  I read that it's level 40 to 80 in the mines.  I've only been down to level 3 in the mines, and so I have my rusty sword (all my other tools are Iridium,) 

2. Also, how to you get a better sword from the mines, and how good at combat do you have to be to buy one at the Adventurer's Guild?

1. If you go to the Adventurer's Guild, you can buy a Level 2 Wooden Sword for 250g (Your Rusty Sword is Level 1).
    Frozen tears are common on floors 41-49 (and they're one of Sebastien's favorite gifts).

2. You'll find the Steel Smallsword (Level 2, Speed +2) in a chest when you reach Level 20 of the mines.
    After reaching floor 20 in the mines, you can buy a Silver Saber (Level 3) for 750g at the Adventurer's Guild.

Bring a lot of food and any bombs you have when you go mining. Good luck!  ;D

Thanks, Oshizu!  I have 25 pumpkin soups in my backpack, some stuffing and Autumn's Bounty.  I will put the bombs I have in my backpack.  Tomorrow, their time, is going to be a sunny winter's day with a little extra luck.

I was at level 2 in the mines this morning, and now, I've reached level 120, and I have the monster slingshot, space boots, a lot of rings, the skull key, the galaxy sword, galaxy dagger and galaxy hammer.  I got to level 25 in Skull Cavern, so, now I need to meet Mr. Qi.  Now, I have to get a chub to finish the bundles for the community center.

Chubs are pretty easy -- I think you can get them outside the Adventurer's Guild.

Thanks :) --- I've been fishing in that area, but I will try fishing even closer to the Adventurers' Guild --- right in front of it.

Edit --- I got a chub about an hour ago, so now, the community center is done  :)!

Edit:  I got 4 candles in Grandpa's Evaluation --- finally!!  :)

@Ausette --- I like your slime farming screenshot.  I started doing it a few days agp, but there were too many slimes after awhile, so I squished them with the galaxy hammer.  Today, I put 2 new eggs in the slime egg press, so I'll rinse and repeat --- especially until I have 1,000 slimes at the adventurers' guild.

What else goes in my character's wallet besides: the rusty key, the dwarish translation guide, the skull key, the Dark Talisman, the magic ink and the club card?  I did the community center route, and completed it awhile ago.

I guess this is the thread for this, but this is similar instead of the Sims thread about it, this is a post about:
"You Know You've Played Too Much Stardew Valley When..."
you've worn away your "A" key on your keyboard from using the ASDW keys on your keyboard.  That just happened to me.  I noticed it a few days ago.

Man, ConcernedApe has put so much more work into SV that I think my guide to it is very outdated. I hate that about writing for games, but it makes the game so much better so balances it out for me. I'm sure that I'll revisit this and try to improve it, I'm still glad some of you found it helpful. I think the biggest thing is the change to the start.

Does anyone know what precision does on the topaz ring? It increases it 10% but I really couldn't figure it out. You don't really miss much, if ever, if I recall. If someone knows what that does @mention me please.

You SV guide is great, @Carl!  The Topaz ring increases weapon precision by 10%.  I think that means that your character will get the slime, shadow brute, etc. exactly in the right spot on their "body" to kill them even faster --- but maybe not as fast as crit. power rings or swords.
