For new players in the series, cursed tools are a set of special tools found in Lake Mine, which is only accessible during winter. They are more powerful than your existing upgradable tools, even stronger than Mythic-level ones. Still, it is named such because you cannot take them off after equipping them. You can only use them normally after you “bless” them accordingly.
Now, before we dive in into that, we need to talk about how to find them first. Cursed tools only spawn at specific floors in Lake Mine, namely:
- Floor 29 – Cursed Fishing Rod
- Floor 39 – Cursed Hoe
- Floor 49 – Cursed Axe
- Floor 59 – Cursed Hammer
- Floor 69 – Cursed Watering Can
- Floor 79 – Cursed Scythe
Tricks in Digging Cursed Tools
It is highly recommended for players to utilize the Save & Load trick when getting your way down the mine. You can read more about mining, ladder finding, dropping-down hole here.
Most importantly, always, and I repeat, always remember to save at Floor X8 before going down to the said cursed tools floor. Cursed tools does not always spawn, and you will need to reload your game to X8 Floor and go down again for a chance to spawn them. Also, you need empty slot in your tools section to be able to dig them. Beware on accidentally equipping any cursed tools during your run in the mine, seeing that will be a tragedy.
From personal experience, it took me about 3 hours (excluding the breaks I took in between) in finding them all in a single run. Some unlucky players reported it took them around 4-5 hours instead. Stamina wise, I used only less than 10 Bodigizer XL through Save & Load trick.
Cursed tools can spawn anywhere around the floor, even border, around the stairs, or under stones. And unlike its predecessor, you do not need to possess any Mythic-level tools to find them. In fact, you can also find cursed tools when you have 0 friendship with everyone in town.
Blessing Cursed Tools
After finding cursed tools, the next step you will want to proceed is to bless them. Different cursed tools require different blessing method, regardless of its description telling you to bring it to the church. The blessing methods are as follow:
- Use 50 times (charging up still count as 1) – Cursed Fishing Rod and Cursed Axe
- Bless them in church 5 times (Monday, Wednesday or Raining/Snowing Day 1:00 PM ~ 4:00 PM) – Cursed Hoe and Cursed Watering Can
- Continuously equip for 5 days – Cursed Hammer and Cursed Scythe (Best done during winter)
