It’s something that has become synonymous with gaming and for that reason, gamers are almost conditioned to look in every single nook and cranny of every in- world, absorbing content like a sponge. Well, in , you’ll find that it’s no different.
This is jam-packed with secrets, hidden treasures, lost artifacts, and subtle puzzles to solve. Some of these are simply interesting little oddities that can be donated to the Pelican Town Museum, but others have alternative uses and properties.
For example, Ancient Seeds can be planted and used to grow the most profitable plant in the , or you can dig up Dinosaur Eggs which can be incubated and grown into prehistoric creatures that wander your farm.
The point is that there are some treasures that serve multiple purposes and today we are going to focus on a set of rare artifacts that serve as a means of deciphering a long-forgotten language and allow you to communicate with the Dwarf people of the realm. We are of course referring to the Dwarf Scrolls found in .
In this guide, we will be taking an in-depth look at these rare scrolls, we will be letting the know why they are so important within the , where to find them, how is best to use them and we may even reveal some secrets that you may not have figured out for yourself, even if you are a veteran . So without further delay, here is our .
What are Dwarf Scrolls in?
Dwarf Scrolls in are ancient artifacts that have been left behind by the early inhabitants of this mine, the Dwarven people.
They were a powerful race that called this land home for thousands of years but after a long and painful war with the Shadow People, a race which the will be familiar with if they have encountered Krbous who lives in the sewers, the Dwarven population dwindled and humans claimed the land as their own.
These scrolls serve as the relics of this lost civilization and also act as an the can donate to Gunther in the Pelican Town Museum. However, this is not their only purpose. that
There are four Dwarf scrolls in total, each numbered and color-coded to help players distinguish one from another. The will be tasked with collecting them all, and if they do, they will gain the ability to speak in the Dwarven tongue and reap the rewards that this new skill brings.
Where Is The Dwarf In?
Before we get into the guide proper, we should probably discuss who the Dwarf is in the can interact with and form a relationship with, much like the other townspeople. and where to find him. The Dwarf is an NPC within that
However, the won’t simply come across the Dwarf by heading to Pierre’s General Shop to pick up supplies or taking a stroll through the . For you see, the Dwarf can only be found in the Pelican Town Mines. He stays in a fixed position at all times and will always be found in the opening area of the Pelican Town mines where you find the Elevator, the first ladder down, and the Mine Cart.
The can only access the area that the Dwarf is in by smashing a strong rock that blocks the path to the secret eastern cavern of the mine entrance. If a new uses a pickaxe on the rock, they will see a message pop up on the screen indicating that they will need a stronger pickaxe to break this rock.
However, what some players may not know, is that even with a measly bomb like a Cherry Bomb, you can topple this blockade and access this area. Otherwise, you will need to upgrade your Pickaxe to silver quality before you can mine the rock wall.
After you have smashed this wall, you can then speak to the Dwarf, give him gifts, and talk to him as you would every other NPC in the . however, without all four Dwarf Scrolls, you will not be able to understand what he is saying. So we would urge you to donate all of these to the Museum if you want to get to know this lovely Dwarf better.
Where Can You Find Dwarf Scrolls In?
Okay, so you understand why there are Dwarfs cutting about in Pelican Town, and you understand the importance of the Dwarf Scrolls. However, you may be wondering where to find these relics. Well, we know the answers and we are more than willing to share with the whole class. So here is a breakdown of how to find each type of below:
This is most likely the first the is making their way through the first thirty-nine levels of the mines. that players will find on their trips to the mine. This will most commonly pop up when
The can dig all four of the scrolls up potentially by hoeing soft on any of the mines, or even in the in the , but the chance are higher on these levels as there is a 0.5% chance that the enemies that inhabit these early levels will drop this . Here is a quick list of these enemies below:
Moving on, players will find the most commonly on floors forty to seventy-nine in the Pelican Town Mines. This can be tilled from soft or more commonly, this will be found through enemy drops (0.5%). The following enemies drop :
The third of these scrolls, The will encounter this by tilling soft in the mines, or more commonly through enemy drops. , is probably the most common of all the scrolls listed, as there is a much more viable method of farming for this .
Most of these enemies will provide a 0.5% chance of dropping this , but unlike the other scrolls, one enemy offers a 1.5% chance of dropping this . This is the , one of the most common enemies on these floors. So, you shouldn’t have too much trouble tracking this down. Here is a quick list of all the enemies that drop this :
- Red Slime
- Purple Slime
- Copper Slime
- Iron Slime
- Tiger Slime
- Lava Bat
- Lava Crab
- Squid Kid
- Shadow Shaman
- Shadow Brute
- Metal Head

Then lastly, we have what is probably the most elusive of all the Dwarf Scrolls, . This can be found by killing pretty much any monster in the , apart from a select few. Just for reference, these are the Iridium Crab, Skeleton, Serpent, Wilderness Golem, Iridium Bat, , and Haunted Skull.
The can till this from the ground or they can get this as a drop but regardless of their methods, there is only a 0.1% chance of presenting itself. We would wager that this one will be the that gives you the most hassle when it comes to completing the collection.
What Can You Use Dwarf Scrolls For In?
As you can see from the section above, the collection can be a little tricky to pin down, especially if you aren’t too keen on the mining aspect of this .
However, there are plenty of reasons why you should make the effort and track these relics down. So here is our rundown of all the reasons why you need these artifacts in your life below:
The Museum Collection
First and foremost, players should track these relics down as they are needed to complete the museum collection. The will receive multiple rewards as they add more and more items to the collection.
Plus, along the way, Gunther will give the access to the Pelican Town Sewers, where you can catch new fish, access areas for end- quests, and gain access to another elusive NPC like the Dwarf, Krobus. Then once the finishes the collection, they will be rewarded with one of the seven rare Stardrops within the and receive a permanent boost to their energy stat.
In short, it is very worthwhile to finish the museum collection if you care about the progression in this .
The Dwarven Translation Tool
Donating these scrolls to the museum is important for all the reasons we said above, but donating all of these scrolls specifically offers a unique reward that provides its own set of benefits to the . You see, when you donate all of the Dwarf Scrolls to the Museum, you get the Dwarven Translation Tool.
This is a non-inventory the to make sense of the gibberish that the Dwarf has been saying up to this point. This means that the can properly interact with the Dwarf and can build a strong relationship with them. , similar to the likes of the Skull Key for example, which allows
The Dwarf’s Shop
Piggybacking on the last entry, if the can understand what the Dwarf has to say, they will then be made aware that he is in fact, a merchant. The Dwarf runs a shop that sells a number of oddities, most of these relating to the art of mining. Here is a list of all the items that the Dwarf has to offer:
- Life Elixir – 2,000G
- Oil of Garlic – 3,000G
- Rarecrow 6 – 2,500G
- Cherry Bomb – 300G
- Bomb – 600G
- Mega Bomb – 1,000G
- Miner’s Treat – 1,000G
- Stone Cairn – 200G
- Recipe – 500G
Like most items in the uses any of the scrolls on the sewing machine they will receive the Gold Trimmed Shirt, which is a white shirt with gold trimming on the sleeves and the neckline. , the Dwarf Scrolls can be used in a sewing machine and converted into a new piece of clothing for your wardrobe. If
It’s a shame that each doesn’t offer a unique colored trim but the luxurious look of the Gold Trimmed Shirt does a lot to make up for this. So if you have a duplicate of one of these scrolls, this is a good use for it.
Then lastly, if you are raising fish in a fish pond, there is sometimes a need to use Dwarf Scrolls to help them grow and multiply. This is specific to Ghostfish who will ask for one of these scrolls when they need to grow from a capacity of seven to ten. Although, unless you are in desperate need of White Algae, Refined Quartz or Pale Broth, this isn’t the best fish to farm in all honesty.
Question: Can You Live With The Dwarf?
Answer: Sadly not. You may be mistaking this for Krobus, the other elusive NPC in Pelican Town. As of the 1.5 Update, the player can now move in with Krobus and he serves as the platonic relationship option within the game. It’s a great option to have as, let’s face it, sometimes you just want to take a break from romance and chill with a roommate, and in our opinion, Krobus is a pretty sound roommate.
Question: Does The Dwarf Sell Bombs?
Answer: Yes, the player can stock up for each trip to the mines by visiting the Dwarf and perusing his shop. He sells Cherry Bombs, Bombs, and Mega Bombs. We will admit that using this method isn’t a very cost-effective way to stockpile bombs. Especially considering how simple it is to make standard bombs when you have the recipe.
However, if you get early access to the Dwarf’s shop, this can be a good way to get your hands on Mega Bombs even if you don’t have the recipe yet. However, as a rule of thumb, we would say try to craft these rather than opting to buy them if you can help it.
Stardew Valley Dwarf Scroll Guide: Deciphering The Ancient Dwarven Code!
As you can see from the information above, these artifacts found in the Pelican Town Mines are more than just interesting curations for the Museum, they are the key to translating Dwarven language, and in turn, this allows the player to potentially make a new friend, and also gain access to a new merchant that is a really handy thing to have when delving into the mines.
We hope that this guide allows you to gather all four of these scrolls in rapid fashion and we hope that you and the Dwarf really hit it off with the language barrier no longer serving as a blockade on your relationship. As always, thank you for reading SdewHQ.
