You’ve just been introduced to your plot of land on Azoria, and if you’re anything like me, you want to get started right away in clearing everything out. If you’ve begun this and realized there are some pieces you can’t remove yet, you may be wondering how to upgrade your tools in Fae Farm. While this isn’t something you can do right away, we’re here to walk you through how to get to it fairly quickly.

Upgrade Your Tools

At the beginning of Fae Farm, you’re given a set of tools in a present inside your new home. After a few quests you’re also given a fishing rod by Eddy and a critter net by Mel. A few more small quests are meant to get you acquainted with how things work for you and your land on Azoria. In Chapter 3, you will get access to the Saltwater Mines which will have your first ores necessary for initial upgrades.

You will need to craft a Stone Forge on your land. This will give you the ability to turn ore from the mines into ingots by adding the ore and coal. Take the completed ingots to Cinder the blacksmith and she will use them to upgrade your items. She is found at the Docks on the right side before the bridge that takes you to the Beach.

As you unlock different areas of the map you will be required to discover new things in these areas to access the upgrades as they will be made into new materials for your tools. She can upgrade your Axe, Pickax, Sickle, Shovel, and Watering Can.

Upgrade Your Net and Fishing Pole

While Cinder can help you out with your basic farming tools, she cannot help with your fishing pole or net. However, they are upgradable! You’ll just need to catch fish and critters to level up your skills. To upgrade your fishing pole, you’ll have to visit Eddy at the Stay-A-While Bay and open his Rod and Reel shop. Here are all the upgrades available and when they unlock:

  • Sturdy Rod – Level 3
  • Advanced Rod – Level 5
  • Master Rod – Level 7

Each rod requires the previous one as well as some Florins to get the upgrade. This is similar for the bug net. You’ll talk with Mel the beekeeper to get the critter net upgrades. In his Millions of Bees shop you can get these nets at these levels:

  • Sturdy Critter Net – Level 3
  • Advanced Critter Net – Level 5
  • Master Critter Net – Level 7
