What are Duggies in Stardew Valley?
They’re mobs found in different areas depending on the variation you’re going after. They come in three types: regular, dangerous, and magma Duggies. They’re bug-like creatures that suddenly pop out from the ground. After casting their attacks, they eventually retreat to the hole they made.
Moreover, note that these holes can’t be removed using a hoe. While killing 30 of them (any variation) helps complete Adventurer’s Guild Monster Eradication Goal and gives you a hard hat as a reward.
Nonetheless, encountering them requires some precaution. Here are the stats of these mobs in Stardew Valley:
Where Can You Farm Duggies in Stardew Valley?
Interestingly, you won’t find them simultaneously. You’ll encounter a basic Duggy on floors six to 29 of the Mines. While its dangerous counterpart only appears once you activate the Shrine of Challenge or once you’re dealing with Danger in the Deep Quest. You’ll battle with them in the same area’s first to the 29th level.
Magma Duggies, on the other hand, are found in the Volcano Dungeon. There’s no specific floor on where you’ll encounter them, so better prepare your weapons when going here!
Despite the varying stats and appearances, they all have the same behavior. They can sense you two tiles away and attack you at the same speed. You can use the same strategy in defeating them too.
When fighting them, you simply need to move continuously before they can charge at you. When they attack you, better move to their hole and wait for them to retreat. You may also block their damage by swinging your sword.
