Disney Dreamlight Valley is finally released this Tuesday, September 6, 2022 in Early Access on all platforms. The opportunity for you to discover this magical world and restore it by finding lost Disney and Pixar characters. All means are good: whether it's exploring the open world by unlocking the passages of nocturnal thorns thanks to the Dreamlight, or going through the castle and its magic paintings. Today we are going to focus on gems, their usefulness and where to find them.
Gems: how to get them and what are they used for?
The usefulness of gems
Gems can be used for several things in Disney Dreamlight Valley:
- You can sell them at Goofy's Stand to get a good price and get lots of coins,
- You can offer them to the inhabitants , especially to Scrooge who loves precious stones,
- You can sometimes use them to craft items,
You often have to use them to complete story missions or side quests. One of the main quests, for example, will ask you to place 3 different gems on statues.
Be sure to keep at least one of each gem in your chests (you can create multiple chests to get more storage space). Even if it is tempting to sell them, very often you will be asked, for quests, to give gems to the characters.
How to get it?
From the start of the game, you will get a Pickaxe which allows you to mine the black rocks on the cliffs. Approach and break the rock until it disappears to free stone, coal and sometimes gems.
- Smooth black rocks: even if no gem appears on the surface, it is possible to free one by mining,
- Rocks with precious stones: some black rocks will directly show a stone on the surface (the color indicates which stone it is),
- Always favor mining by being accompanied by a character whose profession is Extraction: this way, you will have a chance of obtaining double the number of gems.
List of gems and where to find them
Note that each gemstone can be found in a different biome, as can the ingredients. Thus, for example, you will have a better chance of finding an Aquamarine on the Beach and an Emerald on the Plain. There are 18 gems but in reality only 9 different ones (each of the gems has a shiny, more expensive and rarer version).
