How To Obtain The Quest "Robin's Lost Axe"

Stardew Valley - Receiving the letter to start the Robin's Lost Axe quest

Like a lot of quests in Stardew Valley, Robin will directly contact you with this quest. On the eleventh day of Spring, you will receive mail from Robin asking you to find her lost axe.

She will mention that the last time she used it, she was south of Marnie's ranch. Accepting this quest takes no extra effort since it comes to you! There's no time limit on it, either, so you can take as long as you need to finish it. Just remember that Robin's waiting!

Where To Find Robin's Lost Axe

The area south of Marnie's ranch is pretty big, so let's go over where to find Robin's axe there. From the map above, you can see that the area is large, but the axe will be pretty close to the sewer drain. If you already know where the sewer drain is, just head there and the axe should be in a little clearing directly above it.

If you have never wandered over here, don't worry. From Marnie's Ranch, you will want to head south until you come to the water (not the small pond with a dock, but the river that runs through the forest).

At the top of the water, you should see a small bridge. Cross the bridge to the small island, then cross the next bridge, and follow along the path until you have made it across the river. Head south and veer east, following the edge of the cliff. The axe should be sitting right at the southeastern part of the forest, just east of where you can pick Spring Onions in the spring.

This area is called the Cindersap Forest and it has many secrets, so if this is your first time exploring it, keep going! After donating 60 items to the museum, you will get the Rusted Key, which allows entrance into the Sewers.

How To Complete The Quest "Robin's Lost Axe"

Stardew Valley - Returning Robin's Lost Axe

Once you have the axe, head back to Robin. If you finished this quest the same day you received it, just head to Robin's house and return the axe. If you waited a bit before finding her axe, make sure you know where she is. On Tuesdays, Robin goes to Pierre's General Store. Other than that, she is usually at home, with very few exceptions.

Returning Robin's axe will give you one friendship heart and 250g. Since this quest gives friendship, you will want to complete it before you have max friendship with Robin. If you already have the max amount of friendship, then this extra heart won't come in handy.

In addition to this quest, Robin also has several other quests that can be completed. With the 1.5 update for Stardew Valley, you can also find requests from Robin on the Special Orders board.

Now, you have finished Robin's lost axe quest! This is a great way to make friendships and money early in the game since it triggers shortly after you begin. Get out there and complete other quests, finish fixing the community center, and head to the brand new area — Ginger Island!
