How to Make Iridium Sprinkler in Stardew Valley?
Farming is one of the most important tasks in the action roleplaying world of Stardew Valley. It is also a task that brings in a lot of satisfaction, given that the game is also defined as a ‘farming simulation’. It is without doubt that farming utilizes different resources at different stages of crop rearing. However, irrigation is one activity that you engage in throughout the farming process.
Having a sprinkler system makes things ten times easier. Therefore, in this article, we’ll take a look at how you can make your very own Iridium Sprinkler system in Stardew Valley.
What is an Iridium Sprinkler in Stardew Valley?
An Iridium Sprinkler is an irrigation device offering a pivotal irrigation solution that can water around 24 tilled adjacent tiles (in an area of 5×5). This tool becomes available for use after reaching a farming level of 9. However, there are other irrigation alternatives that are available at levels 2 and 6, but they can water only four and eight adjacent tiles, respectively.
How to obtain an Iridium Sprinkler?
There are two ways of obtaining an Iridium Sprinkler. The first way to get one is by creating it after reaching level 9 of farming. The second way is by spending in-game gold. You can purchase it from Krobus for 10,000 pieces of gold every Friday.
