The Path to Perfection

Embarking on the journey to Perfection in Stardew Valley means ticking off a comprehensive checklist of tasks. Here’s what you need to accomplish:

  • Ship one of every crop and forage item.
  • Cook every food recipe.
  • Catch every fish, including the legendary ones.
  • Reach level ten in all skills.
  • Find all 130 Golden Walnuts on Ginger Island.
  • Craft every craftable item.
  • Complete all monster eradication goals at the Adventurer’s Guild.

Friendship and Stardrops

Your social prowess is also put to the test as you aim for Perfection in Stardew Valley. You must reach maximum friendship levels with every villager, including those who are a bit out of the way like the Dwarf, Krobus, Sandy, and Leo.

Additionally, you’ll need to find and consume all seven Stardrops, which are hidden throughout the valley:

  • Reach floor 100 in the Mines.
  • Purchase at the Stardew Valley Fair for 2,000 star points.
  • Marry a villager and reach 12.5 hearts or marry another player in multiplayer.
  • Buy from Krobus for 20,000g.
  • Find one at the Old Master Cannoli statue in the Secret Woods.
  • Receive one from Willy after catching all fish.
  • Obtain the final Stardrop for completing the Museum collection.

Building and Quests

To achieve Perfection, you must also construct each of the four Obelisks, which serve as warp points around Stardew Valley. These are not only costly but require rare materials and the completion of specific quests:

  • Earth Obelisk
  • Water Obelisk
  • Desert Obelisk
  • Island Obelisk

You’ll also need to build the Gold Clock, a 10 million gold investment that prevents debris from accumulating on your farm.

Purchasing Perfection Waivers

In version 1.6, a new route to Perfection was introduced: Perfection Waivers. These can be purchased from Fizz, a secret merchant on Ginger Island, for 500,000g each, granting you an additional 1% toward your Perfection progress. The total cost for 100% Perfection through waivers is 50,000,000g, but Fizz offers a discount for each percentage point you’ve already achieved.

Rewards for Achieving Perfection

Once you reach Perfection in Stardew Valley, the rewards are immediate and significant. You’ll receive notifications about Grandpa’s pride and a mysterious rumbling. The next day, a path to the Summit opens up, where a special credits sequence awaits. But the rewards don’t stop there:

  • Statue of True Perfection: Produces one Prismatic Shard daily.
  • ??? Hat: A hat resembling ConcernedApe’s avatar, obtained from a lava monkey at the Volcano Forge.
  • Stardrop Carving: A new addition to Grandpa’s Shrine.
  • Golden Eggs and Golden Chickens: After completing the Perfection Tracker, these become available through various methods, including purchase from Marnie or Qi, a special Witch event, or as rare loot in Fishing treasure chests.

Golden Chickens lay Golden Eggs daily, which can be sold or turned into gold-quality mayonnaise for a tidy profit.


Achieving Perfection in Stardew Valley is a monumental task, but it’s one that brings immense satisfaction and some of the best rewards the game has to offer. Whether you’re shipping every item, bonding with every villager, or even purchasing your way to 100% with waivers, the path to Perfection is a journey worth taking for any dedicated player. So grab your tools, nurture those relationships, and set your sights on that perfect score!
