Cliff is a traveler who ended up in Mineral Town through a series of mysterious events. He does not really talk to anyone in town, and prefers to spend a lot of his time in the Church.

His birthday is on Summer 6th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Summer 10th instead.

A quick way to earn LP with Cliff is to enter the church at least once daily. You will receive a bonus 2,500 LP every 10th day until you have entered for a total of 50 consecutive days.

But whether you need gift ideas or need to know his heart events, this guide offers a clear blueprint to help you befriend & woo Cliff quickly.

 

Schedule

Cliff is not fond of socializing much around Mineral Town, so you can usually just find him keeping to himself at the Church. After getting hired at Adge Winery, though, he spends some time working there before heading to the Church at the end of the day.

Cliff’s favorite gift is Curry Rice, which can be cooked in your kitchen after the house upgrade. Simply combine Curry Powder and Onigiri using the Pot.
