Foraging for Wild Items

screenshot

In the mountain area that resides between the towns you'll find a lot of wild items on the ground. You can pick up these items, for free, and ship them for money, give them as gifts, or collect them for message board requests. Each day you'll find new items on the ground and in the foraging spots. The items will change depending on the season you are in and the weather.

The wild items will have a star rank but not all of them have a freshness rating. Items like rocks, snowballs, and branches will never rot but flowers, herbs, mushrooms, and the like do have a freshness to them. The star rank that the wild item has will depend on the current season that you are in; the farther you are in years, the higher the star rank of the wild items you can find. In year one you can find wild items with a maximum of 1.5 stars, year two items have a maximum of 2 stars, year three are 3 stars, and year four is 3.5 stars. Starting in year five you will be limited to finding wild items that have a max star rank of 4.5 and 5 star items won't be available until you have reached year ten in your game.

Foraging Spots

screenshot

Many of the items you'll find can picked up off of the ground in any of the mountain areas, but there are eight special foraging spots where you can find up to five items per day. Just walk up to these spots and press A to see what you can find. There are three stump spots, two log spots, one bamboo thicket, and 2 rocky cliff spots. In these eight spots you'll always have a chance of finding Rock, Weed, or Branches.

You'll find the standard seasonal items in the foraging spots, but you can also find the Red and Orange Wonderful Stones hidden in these foraging spots:

  • Spring: Check the waterfall crack foraging spot in Konohana Mid-Mountain on a rainy day. The bamboo thicket in Konohana Low-Mountain might have a red or orange stone during any weather.
  • Summer: The mountain crack foraging spot in Bluebell Low-Mountain on rainy day, or the tree stump foraging spot in Bluebell Mid-Mountain on sunny days.
  • Fall: On rainy days you might find a red or orange stone in the tree stump near the bare-hand fishing area in Konohana Low-Mountain.

The red and orange stones can't be found during Winter season. Once you find one, you won't be able to find another of the same color until you've found all six stones. After you make your wonderful stone wish, the six stones will scatter across the mountain so you can find them again.

Jumping into the Rivers

You can also find items by jumping into the mountain rivers or the mine geysers. All of the water areas will have a chance of finding the same types of items, but you'll lose 20 stamina points if you jump into the water. If you jump into the water after 9:00 pm, then you'll lose 50 stamina!

  • 90% chance: Find nothing (sorry!)
  • 9% chance: Branch, Fish Bones, Mint, Poison Mushroom, Shimeji, Small Coin, Stone, Walnut, or Weed
  • 1% chance: Amethyst or Ore Stone
