How to Get All Stone Tablets - Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Walkthrough
There are basically 5 stone tablets that you have to get to revive the lighthouse, so the island can be saved from the disaster in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope. It is also a marker that you manage to complete the main quest or story of this game.
Actually, completing the main quest in Light of Hope is quite easy compared to other Harvest Moon games I've ever played. It's because the storyline is too short. I completed it when I was in Fall, year 1.
But indeed, there are some players who struggle or stuck in certain quests and look around for a walkthrough and a guide to find the stone tablet.
Hence, I make this article for you.
Before we are going to the deeper explanation, I give some tips for you who are confused to complete the main storyline. Here are the tips:
- Never skip dialogue related to the main quest even though you don't understand English because all the clues are in the dialogue.
- Repair the bridges and houses if you already have the required materials.
- After you get a stone tablet, you must place it immediately on the panel near the lighthouse.
You can also use these useful tips for starting players.
That's the key to completing the main story of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope.
