How to Get to Ginger Island in Stardew Valley
In order to unlock the Ginger Island, first of all, you will need to help the Fisherman – Willy. In that quest, you will repair his boat, and then he will send you a letter. Now with that letter, he will be asking you to come to his backroom of the fishing shop. Also, that shop is located near the dock in Pelican’s Town beach.
Now let’s see what Willy will ask you to gather the following items.
5 Iridium Bars: With Iridium bars, you can repair the Ship. You can make Iridium Ore by smelting 5 Iridium rods and 1 coal in the furnace. Moreover, you can find Iridium Ore by breaking rocks in Mines’ lower levels and anywhere in the Skull cavern. However, you can have a small chance of Shadow Shamans, Purple Slimes, Iridium Bats, and Shadow Brutes dropping them.
200 Hardwoods: You will need Hardwood to fix the Ship’s hull. Nevertheless, you can find Hardwood by merely cutting down large wood logs and stums in Cindersap Forest. You will need a copper axe, and sometimes you will need a steel axe to cut large logs. Now, secret woods in Cindersap forest has 6 large, and they respawn every day. Moreover, while respawning, they drop around 12 hardwoods. Besides, players who have reached level 10 in Foraging can use the lumberjack perk.
5 Battery Perks: These battery packs are used to build the Ship’s ticket machine. Now, you can harvest battery packs simply by placing lighting rods. Those rods will generate battery packs when lightning struck them. Moreover, Iridium Bats in the Skull Cavern do have chances of dropping battery packs when you kill them. Also, Kent and Pam can send gifts as well.
