Equipping Wonderfuls on a Tool can have many different effects on that tool depending on both the Wonderful, and the tool that wonderful is being equipped to. How do I Equip Wonderfuls to My Tool? Good question! On the second day of your game, the general store owner Chen will arrive on your island with his son Charlie. After they set up shop, Charlie will be available in the early mornings and evenings (normally around 3 p.m.) to Equip and Remove wonderfuls. YOU CANNOT REMOVE OR CHANGE WONDERFUL STONES YOURSELF. You can change/remove wonderfuls as many times as you want in one visit or one day. What do the Wonderfuls Do? There are seven (7) different colored wonderfuls that you can find throughout the game. Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Yellow, Purple, and Indigo. Sometimes what each wonderful does depends completely on the tool that they are attached to. Certain wonderfuls always have the same effect no matter what tool they are associated with. For example, the Indigo wonderful will always give 5 extra stone slots on each tool and the purple wonderful will always give 2 gold per wonderful attached to the equipped tool per charged swing. For more information on each wonderful's effects on each tool, see the specific tool section(s). How do I charge my Tool? Good question. Simply either hold the button associated with the tool that you want to charge or keep the stylus pressed down on that tool until light surrounds the tool before you swing. Once the light appears, your tool is charged and you can reap the benefits of your wonderfuls. ================================================= Obtaining Wonderfuls.......................[BM02] ================================================= There are three (3) Ways to obtain wonderfuls throughout the game. Each one requires time, patience, and in some cases, cold hard cash. I have listed each way to obtain wonderfuls and the necessary information on how to attain them below for your reading pleasure. NOTE: You have control over which wonderful you receive from the Goddess and the one you win at festivals by using the following method. MINE: If you reach the 254th floor and save, then drop down to the 255th floor, immediately after the Goddess stops talking check your rucksack. If the color wonderful that you desire is not in your rucksack, then reload, and use a tool 10 times, and then drop again. The color will change! The color rotation of the Wonderful given by the goddess (and at festivals) is on a set cycle. (See below) FESTIVALS: Enter the festival and if you win, you will get a dialog box telling you which wonderful you received. If that is not the color you desire, simply reload and use a tool about ten (10) times, then enter again. COLOR ROTATION: The color rotation of the Wonderful given is set on a specific cycle. Blue -> Green -> Red -> Yellow -> Orange -> Purple -> Indigo -> (Loop) Say you reach the 255th floor, and receive a red wonderful, using a tool 10 times will nudge your farm degree up by 10 points and move you onto the Yellow wonderful, and so on. If you are curious as to specifically how the color of your wonderful ties to your Farm Degree the associated scores are as follows: Wonderful Color Last 2 Digits of Farm Degree Blue Wonderful Between 0 and 19 Points Green Wonderful Between 20 and 39 Points Red Wonderful Between 40 and 54 Points Yellow Wonderful Between 55 and 70 Points Orange Wonderful Between 71 and 82 Points Purple Wonderful Between 83 and 90 Points Indigo Wonderful Between 91 and 99 Points ======================== Festivals.........[BM03] ======================== Each season certain festivals are held that you can win and receive wonderfuls You must come in 1st place in order to receive a wonderful for all your hard work.

But once you can get down to the 255th floor, you may receive a wonderful from the Goddess for your efforts. If you have unlocked the Goddess by throwing 1 thing into the goddess pond then every odd numbered time you reach the 255th floor you will receive a wonderful from her based on your invisible farming degree. ======================== Chen's Shop.......[BM05] ======================== In the Winter Chen will sell wonderfuls in his shop if your farming degree that morning end with the number 5. To make sure he has a wonderful in stock, simply save before going to bed and the next morning, run to his shop and see if he has one listed (it will always be the last item on his inventory list). If he is not selling a Wonderful that morning, reload and use a tool 1 time, you can either save after using your tool once, or keep track of how many times you have used your tool. The next morning go check his shop again and see if he has one for sale. Keep using your tool 1 extra time until one appears in his shop. The color of the Wonderful he is selling that day depends on the date.

No. The Fishing Rod, while technically a Tool, cannot have any Wonderfuls attached to it. ==================================================== Why aren't my Wonderfuls Working?.............[BM17] ==================================================== You probably aren't charging your tool. Hold down the button associated with said tool until it starts glowing, once it is glowing, use the tool. The wonderfuls should start doing their job. ==================================================== What’s this about a Farm Degree?..............[BM18] ==================================================== Your farm degree is a number, based on everything you do during the game, for example, every time you use a tool, it adds one point to your degree. You cannot see the exact number of your farm degree, but you do receive a nifty title depending on how many points you have. ==================================================== Why am I not getting Wonderfuls in the Mine?..[BM19] ==================================================== Eeek!
