Have you been having trouble completing the “Introductions” quest in Stardew Valley Expanded? You’re not alone! Many players have been reporting a bug where it requires meeting 31 people but some SVE NPCs aren’t counted in those “31”, for example, Andy, Claire, and Martin.
The Introductions quest is a quest in the game Stardew Valley that requires the player to meet and speak with various NPCs in the game. The quest is designed to help the player get to know the different characters in the game, and it also rewards the player with some helpful items. The quest begins when the player speaks with Mayor Lewis, who tasks them with meeting and speaking with 31 different NPCs.
However, this quest can be quite tricky to complete, as the player may find that they are unable to talk to some of the NPCs, or that they have already met them but they do not appear on the list. Players may also find that some NPCs introduced by SVE are not counted toward that total. This includes Andy, Claire, and Martin. It is unknown if this is a bug or intentional.
Finally, if you are still having trouble finding the NPCs, you can use the Social Panel to view a list of all the NPCs that you have met. This list will show you which NPCs you have spoken to and which ones you have not. This can be a great way to track your progress and make sure that you have met everyone.
If you are missing any characters, try talking to them again or restarting the game. If you are still having trouble, you may want to check behind the counter to speak with the characters that are not on the list. Additionally, some NPCs may not be available until later in the game, so be sure to complete the quest as soon as they become available.
How to quickly complete the Introductions quest
Luckily, there is a way to quickly complete this quest without having to meet each NPC individually.
During the Egg Festival, every person you talk to will count as a greeting. So if you haven’t greeted anyone yet, just wait for the first Egg Festival and then talk to everyone at least once. This way, you can quickly complete the quest and move on to the next one.
In addition to the Egg Festival, you can also look for the NPCs around town and on your farm. Pay attention to any events that are happening in town and make sure to talk to everyone who is participating. You can also look for them in the various shops and buildings.
Hopefully, these tips will help you complete the Introductions quest and enjoy the rewards that come along with it!
