Who is Clint?
Clint is one of Pelican Town’s most prominent non-marriageable villagers who plays a significant role in your gaming experience. He owns and operates the Blacksmith shop, which sells a variety of ores and offers geode processing and tool upgrade services. Moreover, you’ll most likely find him in his shop because he works and lives there.
Additionally, he claims that he was forced into the job and tends to complain about his working conditions. He also mentioned that he’d rather work outdoors than in a hot furnace for hours. Despite these statements, he spends most of his time working in the shop and seems to enjoy receiving gifts you can get from the Mines.
Interestingly, according to a photo of him clutching a Joja Cola, he only has four fingers on his left hand. You can also tell he loves the blues if you take a careful look at one of his Boombox tapes. Furthermore, his age is unspecified, but according to Stardew Valley’s developer; he’s in his late “30s-40ish.
friendships and Relationships
Clint is exclusively friends with Emily and doesn’t interact with many of the locals. He’s unmarried, has no children, and has no family, which only makes him feel more alone in Stardew Valley. After witnessing numerous happy families celebrate the Feast of the Winter Star, he even remarked that another lonely year is ahead.
He rarely speaks of his family, but he’s made the following statements. First, his great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all blacksmiths from a long line of craftsmen in the Smithing business. Second, his father pushed him to choose this line of work.
Clint has a massive crush on Emily despite living a seemingly isolated lifestyle, as evidenced by a note discovered in his bedroom addressed to her. This unsent letter contains a message saying he knows she only sees him as a friend. He adds that it’s his fault because he’s too frightened to tell her the truth.
After working in his shop, he’ll visit the Saloon so he can talk to her. Furthermore, he’s been holding onto his romantic affections for a long time but is too afraid to ask her out. However, every time he attempts to invite her out on a date, he panics and becomes awkward.
Clint follows a regular schedule that rarely changes. His daily routine slightly alters when he goes to the town’s festival days, when it’s raining, or when he requires a checkup. However, if you restore the Community Center, his Friday timetable permanently changes.

|No. Of Hearts
|If your friendship level with Clint exceeds zero, you’ll receive a gift from him in the mail. Your chances of getting these presents from him increase along with the development of your friendship.
|Visit him at the Saloon between the hours of 7 and 11 pm. You can strike a conversation with him where he’ll open up that he has terrible luck with women and ask you for your advice. You can choose between these four options:
•Tell him to impress the ladies with his strength and charm (+25 points.)
•Tell him to act crazy to keep people guessing (+25 points.)
•Tell him to act natural and just be himself (It doesn’t affect your friendship.)
•Tell him to treat women the way he treats men (+50 points.)
Depending on what you pick, his response will vary. If you choose the first, second, and fourth response, he’ll say, Okay, and he’ll keep what you said in mind. While if you choose the third one, he’ll say that’s precisely his problem because he’s never been successful when he acts like himself.
After this exchange, Emily comes and takes Clint’s order causing him to panic. She’ll take his order of one Big n’ Cheesy with extra sauce and then greet you nicely. Following this, he’ll awkwardly thank her for taking his order and attempts to ask her out, but he gives up and says never mind.
Sad background music plays when she goes away to take Shane’s order. Clint watches his crush talk to another guy easily. Thus, leaving him despondent and certain that he’s doomed.
|Clint will mail you a letter once you’ve reached a three-heart friendship level with him. This letter includes a message and a recipe for Algae soup. A note is attached saying that he has a recipe he wanted to share with you that might help you mine more.
|There are a few requirements for this cutscene; first, you must view Clint’s ‘Three hearts I’ event. Second, you must not be married to Emily and have not seen her Eight or Ten Heart events. Lastly, you must enter the town from the Cindersap Forest between 9 am and 6:30 pm.
When this heart event is triggered, you’ll catch Clint in the bushes, watching over Emily. He’ll explain that he intended to ask her out, but upon reaching her doorstep, he heard her approaching and hid in the bushes. He’ll add that he’s waiting for her to finish her conversation with Caroline to go back home.
Upon hearing his story, you threaten him that if he doesn’t ask her out, you’ll never upgrade your tools with him again. He agrees to this and asks if he can speak with her alone. Then he asks her if she’s willing to go on a date with him tomorrow at the Grampleton Carnival.
She’ll say it sounds fun and accepts his invitation. Clint tells her that he’ll pick her up tomorrow. After that, he’ll thank you for forcing him to ask her.
|After triggering the Seven-hearts event, you’ll receive a letter in the mail from Clint. He’ll send you one of his recipes for Bean Hotpot. Additionally, attached to the note is a message that he wanted to share one of his recipes because it might help you mine more ores.
If you’re wondering if you can marry the town’s Blacksmith in Stardew Valley, the answer is no. Your relationship with Clint can only go as far as being good friends by earning friendship points to obtain more hearts. As your friendship level with him increases, the more heart events you trigger, allowing you to learn a few recipes and witness intriguing cutscenes.

- Help Wanted Board at Pierre’s General Store.
- Quest I. Clint will randomly post a “Help Wanted” request at Pierre’s General Store to order Ores and Coal. Your gold reward for completing this will vary depending on what item or amount he requests. You can achieve this without having any ore or coal in your inventory.
After collecting all the necessary things, you can finish the quest by simply speaking with Clint. If you hand him any amount of coal and ore, one of them is given automatically to him as a gift.
- Quest II. He also posts another request at Pierre’s Store to bring him a random item or kill several Monsters.
