When you arrive on Ginger Island in Stardew Valley 1.5, there’s so much more to do. The game has a new volcanic zone that has new NPCs and quests to complete. Tons of exotic fruits and crops, like pineapples, mangos, and bananas are also on the new island. Another new feature, aside from really useful stuff like the Fairy Dust, is enchantment. Here are the steps you need to take to be able to enchant in Stardew Valley 1.5.
To do any of this, you need to reach the Enchantment Machine on floor 10 of Fire Mountain This is much easier said than done. Even though the new volcanic zone only ten floors, the difficulty spike is much greater than that of the mines. Expect a lot of fire and some very resilient enemies to stand in your way. Along the way though, be sure to complete side quests like the Pirate’s Locket to unlock more interesting stuff. Anyway, let’s get back on track.
Make your way through the ten floors of heck and find the machine at the top of the volcano.
How to Forge Items
Forging and enchanting in Stardew Valley is fairly straightforward, but you need to have some very specific items on hand to do it. For each class of item, you need a specific item to improve it.
but does require having specific materials to do. To enchant you items you need to put the following into the enchantment machine:
You need to place three items into the machine to enchant them.
- Item (Tool or Weapon).
- Gems (Forging) and Prismatic Shards (Enchanting)
- Cinder Shards are used for combining Rings (Found from enemy drops and other sources in Fire Mountain)
Place the items you wish to improve into the machine along with the required materials and you can begin. You will get various options to enchant in a variety of ways depending on the item being enchanted. Read Journal Scrap #8 for more details on what kinds of enchantments can be applied.
