Stardew Valley player horrified to learn they've been using key item wrong for years

Stardew Valley player horrified to learn they've been using key item wrong for years


A Stardew Valley player has been hit with the realisation that they’ve been using a key item completely wrong for years and what makes it worse, is that those years can never be taken back.

There’s perhaps no game that represents the concept of an “indie darling” quite like the cosy farming sim, Stardew Valley. Released in 2016 before being ported on just about every platform imaginable, developed and published by ConcernedApe, Stardew Valley is a game loved by millions but there’s one unlucky player in particular that won't love the fact that they’ve been doing it all wrong for hundreds of hours.

Check out the Stardew Valley trailer below!

“You've inherited your grandfather's old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life,” reads the description of the game on Steam. “Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home?”

As a myth, a rabbit’s foot is an item considered to bring good luck and we might assume that the same would apply in Stardew Valley but we’d be wrong thinking that. One player has discovered that the rabbit’s foot does not bring good luck in Stardew Valley whatsoever.

“I wanted to share in case anyone else is completely oblivious to the fact that lucky rabbit feet are, ironically, not lucky,” said Redditor VinegarShips. Apparently, the rabbit’s foot in Stardew Valley reduces the risk of the worst outcome when dating in the game and is also said to be an item needed to rebuild the Community Centre in Pelican Town.

However, as for bringing any luck, the rabbit’s foot in Stardew Valley does nothing, well, mostly. Thankfully, at least for VinegarShips, they’re not alone in thinking that the rabbit foot brings good luck in the game.

“I carried a rabbit foot with me everywhere for a few years, too!!! You're not alone!” replied PROlificator. “ That being said, various Reddit users said that there is a way that the rabbit foot can bring you good luck because it can be traded for a lucky charm, so it’s not all bad news.

Stardew Valley is out now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
