Let’s start by discussing the mushroom locations and the recipes that require them. The prime spot for mushroom hunting is the Glade of Trust region, unlocked by spending 5,000 Dreamlight to remove the night thorns. Once it’s accessible, you’ll find an abundance of mushrooms scattered throughout.

For efficient gathering, it’s advisable to bring along a high-level foraging friend to increase your drop rate. Having an extra pair of hands can double your loot if you’re fortunate.

Remember to collect the maximum load of mushrooms to assist in other quests later on.

Here are some recipes that call for mushrooms:

  1. Mushroom Pizza
  2. Mushu’s Congee
  3. Sauteed Mushrooms
  4. Veggie Skewers

Most of these recipes are five and four-star dishes that can fetch high Star Coins when sold. Your choice will depend on whether you need energy restoration or want to accumulate more Star Coins.

While wandering in the Glade of Trust, you can continue gathering mushrooms along the way, even without any additional tools!

To unlock Merlin’s Questline, you’ll need to improve your friendship with him to a certain level. For example, his ‘A Dark Experiment’ Quest requires a level 8 friendship bar, so keep that in mind while completing his missions.

Now, regarding the main topic, once you engage with Merlin, his ‘New Enchantment’ quest will grant you a key item, the enchanted Watering Can. Surprisingly, this Watering Can will be your best tool for harvesting larger mushrooms in the Glade of Trust region.
