Hardwood in Disney Dreamlight Valley

What Is Hardwood

To explain it initially, Hardwood is part of 3 crucial materials required to make main items in the mid of the game. It goes along with Iron Ingots and Softwood, which is a low tier of Hardwood. In my opinion some things are required to be crafted in the mid-game, and these items are not used directly but used to prepare items which in turn craft the specific items. Today I will focus on Hardwood.  

Hardwood is considerably more rare than its counterpart, Softwood. Characters usually initiate the recipes that require Hardwood. Now let’s talk about how you can acquire Hardwood.

I recommend firstly you need to get the Shovel upgrade, which is accessible only after you complete Anna’s quest from the Frozen Realm. After you complete her quest in the Valley, you unlock the upgrade, and this upgrade essentially gives you the ability to remove and dig the Tree Stumps. This allows you to forage your way through collecting Hardwood.

    To unlock these areas early on, complete the Merlin quest. It involves increasing the friendship of three villagers to level 5, allowing you to cure the pillar in Peaceful Meadows. After completing Merlin’s quest, you can access new areas by spending Dreamlight. The cheapest options are Glade of Trust and Forest of Valor, which cost around 5000 Dreamlight.
