Where is the stardew valley racoon?

If this is your first time hearing about the Trash Bear, then just knowing something as the “racoon by the sewer in Stardew Valley” might not give enough information about its location. Right? Well, we are here to help with that.

Once you follow these directions, you should be able to find the character without any further issues. However, keep in mind that you will only see the racoon after year 3.

Meaning, he will start appearing in the beginning of year 3 whenever it’s not raining!

What does the racoon want?

Once in a while, you will notice that the Stardew Valley racoon by the sewer will ask you for an item. By “ask”, we mean that a bubble will show up and it will show what you should give this character.

Once you fulfil 4 requests, there will be an adorable cutscene. Don’t worry, we won’t spoil it yet! Just like with most cutscenes in Stardew Valley, they are definitely worth your time.

This character will also request some seasonal fish and items that you will be able to forage throughout the game. This whole quest is not that difficult in general. It just might be confusing if you’re seeing the racoon by the sewer for the first time.

Just try to give whatever the racoon asks for! It usually won’t be anything too complicated, so it shouldn’t be a challenge. It truly becomes an adorable mini game inside Stardew Valley: you just bring stuff to the racoon and watch it become happier and happier!

So, what happens during this task? In simple terms, you will have to talk to Krobus in the Stardew Valley Sewers. Once that is done, you will be able to enter another location that is known as the Mutant Bug Lair. While it might not sound that great, this is where you will get the talisman that you need.

Also, do you need some fighting practice? Fight some bugs in this place with your best weapons in Stardew Valley and improve your skills. Bugs might not be the strongest enemy you will encounter in the game, but it can be a great way to get better and better.

Some players tend to choose quite interesting locations to practice fishing! Well, the Stardew Valley sewers are no exception.

It might even turn out to be a great decision because of the fish that you can catch there! Yes, we are talking about the Mutant Carp.

As you might know, the Mutant Carp is one of the 5 legendary fish that you can catch in Stardew Valley. If you are planning to finish your collection of fancy fish, you’ll need to catch a Crimsonfish, an Angler, a Legend, and a Glacierfish.
