Crafting the Wedding Ring: Your First Steps
The Wedding Ring in Stardew Valley isn’t just another item; it holds the promise of virtual matrimony. In multiplayer games, this is the item you need to propose to another player. Interestingly, the Wedding Ring also factors into earning the Craft Master achievement in multiplayer. Here’s how to make one.
To begin, you’ll need to purchase the recipe from the Traveling Cart for 500g. Once you have the recipe, the ingredients are pretty straightforward but valuable:
- 5 Iridium Bars
- 1 Prismatic Shard
Proposing Marriage: Seal the Deal
Once you’ve crafted your Wedding Ring, proposing marriage is as simple as giving it to the player you wish to marry. If they accept, your avatars will become engaged, and a wedding ceremony occurs three days later. Note that once you’re engaged, the Wedding Ring cannot be used again for another proposal.
Quick Methods to Get a Wedding Ring
If you’re impatient or want to make things easier, there’s a neat trick you can do:
- Go to Marnie’s Ranch.
- Buy an animal, like a chicken.
- Name the animal .
Doing this will instantly give you a Wedding Ring!
The Elusive Prismatic Shard: Get Ready to Grind
Getting a prismatic shard is a gamble. Your best bets are:
- Fishing for treasure.
- Mining in Quarry or Skull Cavern.
- Defeating enemies in Mines.
The shard presents a dilemma: do you use it for a Wedding Ring or to craft the more powerful Galaxy Sword? For those dedicated to mining, the choice often leans towards the latter.
Iridium Mining in Skull Cavern: The Struggles
You’ll need iridium for those 5 Iridium Bars, and the best place for that is the Skull Cavern. To be successful here, you’ll need to have the right equipment and be prepared for some tough battles.
Troubleshooting: Missing Wedding Ring Recipe?
If you’ve completed Mr. Qi’s quest and still can’t find the Wedding Ring recipe, try checking your crafting list or visiting the Traveling Cart. The recipe should appear 100% of the time in multiplayer games, provided you haven’t purchased it before. If all else fails, there may be other requirements you haven’t met yet, such as acquiring other recipes.
Tips for Completing Crafting: Missing Recipes
If you’re striving for 100% completion in crafting and are stuck, consider checking your crafting list against a reliable source. The Wedding Ring is not essential for single-player crafting, so don’t worry if you can’t find it. The key is to double-check all possible recipes you could be missing, like the desert totem, which some players found to be their missing piece.
Crafting a Wedding Ring in Stardew Valley may seem like a romantic gesture, but it’s laden with challenges and choices that reflect the complexities of the game’s mechanics. Whether you’re looking to propose or simply complete your crafting list, understanding how to navigate these choices is essential.
