Friendship level indicator

Friendship is a game mechanic that measures the player's relationship levels with the villagers in the village. Reaching a new friendship level will often unlock a new quest, allowing the player to build new structures, craft new items, experience new things, and get to know villagers and the world of Staxel better.

Not all NPCs can be befriended.

Affecting friendship

Increasing friendship

Friendship can be increased by talking to the villagers or gifting items to them. Friendship points, abbreviated on this wiki as FP, will be awarded for the first five times per day (worth one friendship point per instance)[1] that the villager is talked to, and for the first five ? ]  times that a liked gift is given or the first two ? ]  times that a loved gift is given[2].

Locked friendship levels

Friendship levels with certain villagers may become locked and cannot be advanced further until a quest that that villager is involved in is finished. For example, until Let Them Eat Fish is complete, the player cannot gain any more FP with Riah.

Decreasing friendship

Friendship can be decreased by:[3]

Not every villager has a shop that can be stolen from; the only villagers the player can steal Petals or other items from are Aliza, Leif, and Rowan.

Additional comments: Prerequisite column is a placeholder and a work in progress for now.

There are eight friendship levels, five of which are positive: Disliked, Neutral, First Met, Acquaintance, Liked, Friends, Best Friends, and Roomies.[3] These friendship levels are represented by a small heart that is displayed to the left of a villager's name above their head. As the player gets closer to a villager, the heart will become filled with pink, while as the player becomes more disliked by a villager, the emptier and darker the heart becomes, eventually turning black and breaking if the player becomes Disliked.

Disliked

In order to be Disliked, the player must have already met the villager and repeatedly done things that the villager hates, as mentioned in the Decreasing friendship section above.

For hated gifts, please see the gifting page.

Additional comments: Needs quests added, if any.

Roomie.png

Roomies level is met after reaching Best Friends with a villager. Maximilian will send you a letter with a Farmhouse Signpost and Friendship Bracelet attached. It says that to invite someone to be a roomie, you must place the Farmhouse Signpost in front of your house and gift the Friendship Bracelet to the person of their choosing.

The player can only invite one villager to become their roommate and live with them. Once the player has formally chosen a roomie, they cannot kick the roomie out and choose another roomie.[5]

  2. "They show the villagers favorite gifts, which are love gifts that you can give 2 each day and which are like gifts that you can give up to 5. Either way I think you can get a total of 15 points a day between giving gifts and talking to them. The first friendship level is the first time you talk to them. Their heart goes from black to empty. The first level that shows is 10 points. The second level is 40 points. 3rd level is 100 points and the full heart is 200 points." -- crzymom

  4. 4.0 4.1 "The first level is the first time you talk to the villager. They go from a black heart to a grayed out one. Only takes 1 point to get it. Every time you talk to them you a get a point up to 5 a day for talking to them. You can also give them gifts that give you points and some gifts give more some less. Some levels of gifts you can give more of for more points. But I think the max number of points you can get each day with a villager is 15. So the first friendship level is at 10 points. The second one is at 40 points. the third one at 100 points and the 4th level is at 200 points. You can track these, if in options you tick 'show console'. You have to restart the game, but a separate window will pop up and show the points you have with the current npc you're talking to." -- crzymom
