Foraging

From Stardew Valley Wiki
(Redirected from Botanist)
Jump to: navigation, search

Foraging is the skill associated with gathering wild resources found on the ground throughout Stardew Valley, and with chopping down Trees. Foraging skill also increases by harvesting crops grown from Wild Seeds.

Most forageables can be found throughout their season. One exception is Salmonberry, which can only be found during Salmonberry Season (Spring 15-18), on bushes around town. Blackberries can be found on the ground during Fall, but during Blackberry Season (Fall 8-11), they can also be found on bushes throughout town.

Spawning Limit

Example of Tracking arrows pointing towards forageables. (Two small arrows on the right edge.)

2-5 new forageables spawn each day in each map (i.e., areas bounded by screen transitions). There is a hard cap of 6 spawns allowed in any area at a time. One exception to this rule is The Beach. The area at the right of the beach that can be accessed only after repairing the bridge with 300 Wood is considered a separate area, and can contain more than 6 items on any given day. Another exception are the Spring Onions that grow south of Leah's Cottage in Cindersap Forest. Spring Onions don't count against the limit and are reset every day. All other forageables reset when the player goes to sleep on Saturday night.

The Tracker.png Tracker Profession makes the spawned forageables easier to find by adding small yellow arrows at the edge of the screen that points towards all forageables as well as all Artifact Spots in the current area. Tracking does not work on berry bushes.

Quality

The quality of foraged goods comes in four levels: regular, silver, gold, and iridium. However, only players who have chosen the Botanist Profession can find iridium quality foraged goods. Higher quality goods command higher prices when the goods are sold, and deliver greater energy and health benefits when they are consumed. If given as a gift to an NPC who likes or loves it, a quality gift also provides a higher number of friendship points.

The Botanist.png Botanist Profession applies Iridium Quality to:

The Botanist Profession does not apply iridium quality to mushrooms that are not picked up from the ground. (Mushrooms gained from tapping a Mushroom Tree or from The Farm Cave will not be iridium quality.)

Experience Points

Chopping down a tree gives 12 foraging experience points (granted all at once for the last chop that causes the tree to fall), and removing Large Stumps and Large Logs gives 25 exp. Removing regular tree stumps gives no experience.

Forage crops grown on the farm from Wild Seeds give 3 foraging experience points each when harvested. Spring Onions that grow in Cindersap Forest south of Leah's Cottage also give 3 exp each when harvested.

Picking up Forage items around town gives 7 exp each. Picking up a Truffle on the farm gives 7 exp.
