✰ Notes ✰
- Snake lily only spawns in tiles in Autumn/Winter*
- Raspberries only spawn in tiles in Summer/Spring, Blackberries in Autumn**, and Blueberries in Winter
- Mushrooms spawn on the surface in Autumn in random tiles***
- Foxglove only spawns in Summer/Autumn****
- Bats and Rats only appear at night, or in the mines*****
- Queen of the Nights only appear at night******
- Ladybugs and Moths only spawn in Spring, Butterflies and Fireflies only spawn in Summer, Dragonflies only spawn in Autumn, and Beetles only spawn in Winter
- Most herbs aren't growing in Winter, you'll have to buy (Ember, Mole, Festival, Task) or grow them (Alabaster/Garden) instead
- Herbs that require a higher rarity will be marked as such with ★'s, I will use the highest rarity icons for herbs just because I think they look pretty (ex. Goldenseal vs Goldenseal ★★)
- Italised items mean that that area shares all the item's spawns
- In your inventory, pause menu, and map, there's a bar at the top with a paw and two arrows pointing to left and right. If you keep pressing one, eventually you'll land on a tab called 'Donate', which shows the items for recruitment that you still need, and those you have currently on you!

What I do for Umbra is I start saving up all the stuff at the start of the game, it's the Spring festival and I'm down one Dark Ruins and I already have 23 voidmarrow

...are there any cheats/hacks to get all the stuff you need for umbra or a place to type in cheats...? i love the game but it is haaarrrdd to get all dat stuff :wacthercat:

For those wanting to know the quickest means of getting the Snake lily for Charlotte when you start your game, get one or two from the Spring Festival! You can then save up money for its seeds to grow them. If you only have one, you can feed it plant food every day until its three stars and get more seeds out of it in the process (up to 6 for a three star one!). Otherwise you'll have to wait until autumn to get Snake Lilies then.
