In Stardew Valley you have the choice of six different farms, all with their own unique benefits. In this guide, we will be focusing on one farm in particular. Here is everything you need to know about the Stardew Valley Wilderness Farm.
What is the Stardew Valley Wilderness Farm?
Stardew Valley’s Wilderness Farm is one of the six choices of farms players can choose when you start the game. However, it may not be recommended for beginners, because unlike the other five maps, Stardew Valley’s Wilderness Farm encourages combat.
At night, enemies will spawn and will scale to the player’s current combat level – making some encounters quite dangerous. In addition to this, the map is home to a unique enemy, the Wilderness Golem.
However, this particular enemy can also spawn on the other maps if the player has given a Strange Bun to the Dark Shrine of Night Terrors in the Witch’s Hut.
The Wilderness Golem is a variation of a Stone Golem and acts in the same way towards the player as the Stone Golem. The Wilderness Golem has the base health of 30, base damage of five, a base defense of one, and a speed of three. Further, it also gives the player five XP upon being killed.
Upon death, the Golem can drop the following items for the player, all with different drop rate percentages: Diamond, Earth Crystal, and the Prismatic Shard. The Wilderness Golem also plays a key role in Abigail’s story, who is one of the dateable NPCs in the game.
The Stardew Valley Wilderness Farm map also has a very rough terrain compared to the others. There is less farming space because of extra cliffs and two ponds the map, making growing a lot of crops difficult. At the ponds, the player can fish but has a higher chance of finding trash than an actual fish.
Compared to the other maps, it seems the Wilderness map is meant to provide players with a more challenging experience. So, with that said if this is your first playthrough we would recommend playing one of the other maps – unless you’re looking for a challenge. Just remember, once you choose one of the maps you can’t change without restarting the game.
