Stardew Valley Artisan or Agriculturist Guide for 2021
First, let’s talk about Artisans.
Artisans are the masters of their craft. They are able to create products using various artisan equipment in order to make artisan goods. Once you’ve already maxed your farming skill to level 10, you can choose between being a rancher or being a tiller.
Once you’ve reached level 10 in farming, if you choose the Artisan path, you’ll be able to sell Artisan goods for 40% more than the normal price.
Take pale ale, for example. For a 25g hops investment, you’ll be able to generate up to 840g. That’s a crazy profit percentage of 3260% with 94.02% net profit margin.
But let’s not be biased here.
Agriculturists, with its perk of 10% increase in growth speed, will almost always be capable of topping the same returns. Using the strawberry-blueberry-cranberry plants, you’ll be able to generate almost the same profit ratio as someone who is in the Artisan skill tree.
But overall, it’s still the artisan for me.
