The Stardew Valley Wizard speaking to three people

In Stardew Valley, M. Rasmodius, also known as the Wizard, lives in a tall tower in Cindersap Forest. This magical fellow never leaves his home, meaning you can find him there every day between 06:00 – 23:00. If you continue to interact with him from time to time, you will eventually unlock his basement, this handy room allows you to change your character’s appearance.

Unfortunately, you can’t marry Stardew Valley Wizard. However, you can become good friends. Make sure you give him two gifts per week, plus an additional one on his birthday (Winter 17), we recommend only giving him items he loves to make sure you impress this purple-bearded dude.

If you’re interested in other villagers, take a look at our Stardew Valley Shane, Stardew Valley Elliott, and Stardew Valley Penny guides. For those of you who need a little extra assistance, we also have Stardew Valley farm layout, Stardew Valley co-op, and Stardew Valley silo guides.

Stardew Valley Wizard tower

The Wizard’s home is a tower to the far west of Cindersap Forest, and is open from 6am-11pm. You need to have access to the Community Center and have read the golden scroll before the door is unlocked, at which point the Wizard will teach you how to read Junimo language.

When you get to four hearts with the Wizard, you will gain access to the basement where the Shrine of Illusions is situated. For 500g, the Shrine of Illustions will let you change your name, gender, favourite thing, and appearance. You can also change the style of cat or dog you’ve adopted, though you won’t be able to change from a cat to a dog or vice versa.

Later in the game, you will be given the Goblin Problem quest. After completing this, a teleportation rune will activate in the Wizard’s basement, which allows you to travel between the basement room and the Witch’s Hut anytime.
