The Advantages Of The Wilderness Farm


If you choose The Wilderness Farm in stardew valley, these are the advantages you can look forward to having in the game-

An extra challenge 

As we have mentioned before, at night, monsters come out in the farm and these can be all sorts of creatures. This means that after 7 pm, you have to be on your guard because danger can come from anywhere. 

You will need to take precautions like not working outside when the monsters come out, as well as planning your day so that you don’t find yourself at mercy of these creatures, especially if you have Low Health after working all day in the mines. 

The monsters will be easy to tackle in the beginning of the game, but after day 3, you won’t have anything to protect yourself from these creatures. As the level of combat goes up, so will the difficulty level of the game and you will find yourself combating Skeletons, Ghosts, Shadow Brutes and Iridium Bats. Despite the difficulty level, killing these monsters will get you the loot that will make it worth the trouble. 

Appealing visuals

The Wilderness Farm is quite famous for its two large water bodies, lush green hillsides as well as a cliff on the right side of the map. All of these features give it a very unique and asymmetrical layout which is very appealing to the eyes. 

Catch mountain fish

With its large water bodies, this farm is a great place to catch mountain fish without going into the Mountain which is at quite a faraway distance from the farm.



Dangerous monsters spawn at night 

The monsters coming out at night in the farm is one of its unique features that adds an extra level of challenge in the game with danger lurking around at every corner. This challenge also puts this farm at a disadvantage because there are a lot of ways in which you can get hurt. 

For example, if you have been working at the mines for the day and have Low Health in the evenings when the monsters come out, losing your health to a monster will get you a hospital trip and cost you around 1000 gold. If you stay up beyond 2 am and pass out, you might end up losing a few inventory items. 

Not the best place for fishing

While it is a great place to catch Mountain Fish, it is not as successful in fishing as, say, Riverland or Beach Farms. There is a 65% chance of you catching Trash but don’t forget that even Trash comes in handy at times in Stardew Valley. You can recycle trash to get items that carry higher values such as Refined Quartz, cloth or Ore. You can also find items that can be gifted to people there such as Driftwood for Leah or Joja Cola for Sam. 

Fewer farming opportunities

Due to the water bodies and cliffs, farming opportunities in Wilderness Farm are not as plentiful as in other farms. This doesn’t mean that you can’t plant crops but just that there isn’t abundant space for farming.
