Elliott Stardew Valley Guide (November 2021)

Elliott Stardew Valley

In this Elliott Stardew Valley article, we will be learning about everything there is to know about the dreamiest guy in the most popular farming RPG in existence, Stardew Valley.

Last Update: November 2021

If you’ve never heard of Stardew Valley or never played it before, all I can say is — Are you for real? Have you been living under a rock? I mean, come on dude! All jokes aside, if you don’t have even the slightest idea of what Stardew Valley is, then now is the perfect time to get yourself acquainted with it. 

Not only is this one-of-a-kind RPG finally entering the world of eSport (sort of), it is also the kind of game you’d start and then get sucked into and then never live without ever again. Basically, the kind of game you’d need to withstand the sad and inescapable realities of living through a pandemic. But enough with that, allow me to briefly introduce to you this wondrous game. 

So in Stardew Valley, you’ll be playing the role of a typical adult who just recently inherited your grandfather’s old farm plot in a place called Stardew Valley. Since you’ve realized that the hustle and bustle of city life has grown to be too much for you, you’ve set out to begin a new chapter in your life in the said humble farm. There you’d meet a lot of people who will help you out in setting up your new home (and farm). Some may even cause your breath to hitch and dazzle you with their being. 

For most me, that’s Elliott. And I strongly believe that it would be such a waste for people to not know of his beauty and overall gloriousness. That’s why we have this article!


A loner he may seem, Elliott is considerably one of the most romantic characters in all of the Stardew Valley. You wouldn’t expect any less from a dedicated writer who dreams of writing a magnificent novel one day. 

Because of his inclination to romance, which I think can be blamed on the nature of his profession, Elliott is a very sentimental being. So much so that he has this tendency to go off onto flowery and poetic tangents. 

Like most people in the valley, Elliott enjoys getting a swig of a strong beverage whenever he can afford it at the Stardrop Saloon. Although, you’d rarely see him wandering the square — probably busy trying to overcome writer’s block. 

Like Harvey, the town’s awkwardly cute doctor, Elliott is one of the twelve characters in the game that players can marry. If you plan on being his muse, the next section will help you win his heart.

As daunting as the listicles of Elliott’s likes and dislikes may be, the game Stardew Valley is far from being intimidating. To me, it’s one of the calmest and most chill games to have ever been made. It’s the game you’d want to play when you are looking to unwind and destress after a hard day’s work. What makes Stardew Valley even better is that it’s available on almost every platform — may it be PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch, PS Vita, iOS, and android. 

This amazing game is also so easy to play, it’s almost instinctive. This Elliott Stardew Valley article can indeed guide you into making one of the most popular bachelors in the game fall, as well as other character guides you may find on the net like this one about awkwardly cute doctor Harvey. However, you must know that even without research, Stardew Valley will continue to be a game you can enjoy to the fullest.
