Everything you need to know about Stardew Valley’s Elliott

Eliott is Stardew Valley’s very own romantic, beach-dwelling writer. He’s known for spending a lot of time by himself, choosing to live alone on the beach, and can mainly be found wandering aimlessly outdoors. He also has a tendency to launch into poetic discussions and, if you’re willing to listen, you might well win over his adoration as most of Elliott’s heart events centre around finding him on the map.

He’s got quite a refined taste meaning the way to his heart is a little different to the other villagers available to marry but, luckily, we’ve got you sorted. So, if you’re looking to get to know Stardew Valley’s Elliott better, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to what he loves, likes, dislikes, hates, and feels neutral about.

If you’re looking to impress other characters, we’ve got guides on Stardew Valley’s SebastianStardew Valley’s LeahStardew Valley’s Shane, and Stardew Valley’s Alex. For those of you who are interested in playing with friends, we also have a Stardew Valley co-op guide that may help.
