Useful tips for Stardew Valley – How to make money quick (part 3)
Mine the mines
You’ll get a letter on the fifth day of Spring in your first year, which tells you that all the stones blocking your access to the mines between the Northeast of the Carpenter’s Shop and the West of the Adventurer’s Guild have been magically removed. Thus, get ready for some gold mining time that can earn you serious cash – and literal gold in 120 unique levels of the mine.
Remember that the deeper you get down, the better stuff you’ll get. You will need to bring your hoe to dig and your pickaxe to smash rocks as well as some snacks to remain healthy.
At the very beginning of the game you’ll be given a fishing rod by Willy and you’ll want to spent time into it as it is a very lucrative hobby. The only problem is that it can be quite hard to master at first, but when you do it really pay off. To get started, head to the water and equip your rod, then hold down the action button and don’t let go until your cursor hits the top of the meter. By that, you’ll have a better chance of catching a higher value fish which of course, depending on where your line lands. Now all you need to do is wait for a fish to bite and quickly tap the action button.
It would be tricky though because you’ll have to hold the action button long enough to keep your green border around the fish for the catch bar to fill up completely. If your bar depletes, the fish will escape. One small tip for you is looking for bubbling spots in the water as fish tend to bite more quickly there and be of higher value. Fishing can also be a brilliant way to earn some gold fast..
As soon as you reach fishing level two, you can buy the fibreglass rod from Willy which allows you to add bait to your line. When you reach fishing level three, remember to buy crab pots.
