To get this new blade you need to enter the new Quarry Mine dungeon that was added in 1.4. As the name suggests the entrance to this dungeon can be found inside the Quarry. Inside the Quarry Mine you want to farm the Haunted Skulls, which are new enemies in 1.4. The Haunted Skulls have the chance of dropping the Dark Sword. Simply farm the Haunted Skulls until you get the Dark Sword to drop.

The Dark Sword is a Level 8 sword with the following stats:

  • 30-45 Damage.
  • 5% Critical Strike Chance
  • Stats: -5 Speed; +5 Weight.
  • This Sword can only be found as a drop. It sells for 400g.
  • Has 8% chance of returning health to player from enemies hit by it.

As a new sword the Dark Sword is an interesting early game weapon for players to grab quickly in their Stardew Valley playthrough. With that said if you are already in the end game this sword will make little difference in combat. You’re better off using the Galaxy Sword instead.
