Can You Hire Harvest Sprites to Work in Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley?
There are 3 Harvest Sprites in Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley. They are Nic, Nak, and Flak. They are the characters you first meet in the game after leaving your house.
Nic is a red sprite. Nac is a blue sprite. Flak is a yellow sprite. Nic has a wise personality because he is the leader of their group. Flak, the fat sprite has an awkward persona, while Nic is timid and childish.
Even though they have different characteristics and personalities, mushrooms are still one of their favorite gifts. However, an interesting question for many players who are new to this game is...
Can you hire Harvest Sprites to take care of the farm, livestock, or something?
If that is possible, how?
The short answer to that question is, unfortunately, YOU CAN'T. Same with Harvest Moon: Save The Homeland, the sprites cannot help you farm and take care of livestock in Hero of Leaf Valley.
Their main roles are only as supporting characters in some "main event", especially those related to the Harvest Goddess. They give you some tips to take care of your farm. And give you a Power Berry to increase your stamina the next time you help them.
I don't think the developers want to make this game have the same features as Harvest Moon: Back to Nature or Friends of Mineral Town. What they focus on is the complexity of the main events to save the town from Funland Company.
And actually, the help of these sprites is not needed because our farm is very small. It is different from the series that I mentioned above. So, you purely rely on your own hard work and persistence in carrying out your daily activities.
But, if there is some kind of help feature from the sprites, then it will make this game more impressive. Unfortunately, it's just wishful thinking that happens only in our dreams. Well, I hope there are some cool features for the future Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons games.
That's my answer to the question: Can You Hire Harvest Sprites to Work in Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley? Hopefully, it answers your curiosity. Thanks for reading.
