Stardew Valley Galaxy Sword Guide

While Stardew Valley is largely a farming simulator, there is a bit of combat for players to take part in. This combat takes place in certain dungeon areas where players faceoff against different enemy types. To defeat these enemies players wield a variety of weapons including swords. One of the best swords in the game is called the Galaxy Sword. The guide below walks you through everything you need to know about the Stardew Valley Galaxy Sword.

Galaxy Sword Hint Location

The hint for how to get the Galaxy Sword comes from a fairly interesting process . In order to learn about the method to unlock the Galaxy Sword you need to donate all 4 Dwarvish Scrolls to the Museum to receive the Dwarvish Translation Guide. This guide lets you read and understand Dwarvish. Once you can read Dwarvish go to the Pelican Town Graveyard. Read the far right grave to learn the following:

Stand Between the pillars three. With gift as precious as the sky: A rainbow forged from land, not sea. Then Galaxies will heed your cry.

This hint tells you the exact metho of acquiring the Galaxy Sword. It talks of standing between three pillars while holding some type of rainbow forged item. Doing this causes the galaxies to heed your cry, resulting in receiving the Galaxy Sword.

How to Get the Galaxy Sword

The first step to getting the Galaxy Sword is to have repaired the Bus at the Bus Stop. This means you’ve either completed the Community Center Vault bundle or the JojaMart Community Development Form routes. Once the bus is fixed you can travel to the Calico Desert for 500g each day between 10:10am and 5:00pm.

Get a Prismatic Shard

To get the Galaxy Sword you need a Prismatic Shard.

Before you rush off to Calico Desert you need to ensure you have a particular item. The hint speaks of a a rainbow forged from land, not sea which immediately removes the Rainbow Shell from the conversation. This leaves only one item needed which is a Prismatic Shard.

Acquiring a Prismatic Shard is largely luck based. There are a number of sources players can use to get the item, but they mainly involve spending your time mining. The methods given by the Stardew Valley Wiki are:

  • Mystic Stones in the Mines at level 100+, Skull Cavern, or Quarry.
  • Iridium Nodes in Skull Cavern, Quarry, or Volcano Dungeon.
  • Omni Geodes.
  • Fishing Treasure Chests.
  • Defeating Serpents, Mummies, Shadow Brutes, and Shadow Shaman.
  • Rainbow Trout Fish Pond.
  • Treasure Room in Skull Cavern.
  • Chest on top of Volcano Dungeon.
  • Statue of True Perfection.

The only guaranteed drops from any of the sources are the chest from the top of Volcano Dungeon and the Statue of Perfection. The other methods require RNG to be on your side. If you mine enough there is a good chance you will eventually get a Prismatic Shard from one of these sources. So keep at it until you get one.

Stand Between the Three Pillars While Holding a Prismatic Shard

Once you’ve acquired a Prismatic Shard make a journey to the Calico Desert. In the desert walk north/northeast from the bus stop until you reach a triangle of three pillars. Hold the Prismatic Shard and walk so you are standing in the center of the pillars. It will trigger a sequence during which your receive the Galaxy Sword.

Upon unlocking the Galaxy Sword using the method above you unlock the Galaxy Dagger and the Galaxy Hammer. Both of these weapons can be purchased from Marlon at the Adventurer’s Guild. If you happen to lose or sell the Galaxy Sword he will also have that for sale too.

Up until Update 1.5 the Galaxy Sword was the highest level weapon you could get in the game. That changed, however, with the addition of the Forge on top of the Volcano Dungeon on Ginger Island. Players can combined the Galaxy Sword with the following resources to create an Infinity Blade sword:

  • 3x Galaxy Soul.
  • 60x Cinder Shard.

Both the Galaxy Dagger and Galaxy Hammer can also be upgraded using this method. As of right now the Infinity tier weapons are the highest level weapons that players can get in the game.
