Krobus is a mysterious character in Stardew Valley that you can unlock later in the game. If you want this friendly monster to live with you on your farm, here’s everything you need to do.

Stardew Valley has plenty of mysterious characters, such as Mr. Qi and Krobus. Despite the first one remaining quite a mystery still, Krobus has become one of the most beloved characters in the farm simulator.

If you’re wondering how to convince this friendly monster to become your roommate, here’s everything you need to do to talk to Krobus and convince him to stay on your farm.

How to talk with Krobus in Stardew Valley?

You can talk with Krobus after getting the Rusty Key from the Museum in Stardew Valley, which you’ll win after donating 60 items. This way, you’ll get to explore Pelican Town sewers, where he runs a small shop.

The only moment you can’t talk to Krobus is on Friday, a day when he remains silent out of respect for Yoba, the game’s god.

How to get Krobus to live with you in Stardew Valley?

If you aren’t married in Stardew Valley, you can get Krobus to move into your farm by giving him the Void Ghost Pendant. You can get this item from the Desert Trader for 200 Void Essence, an item dropped by monsters living in the Skull Cavern of Calico Desert.

After accepting the pendant, Krobus will take three days to move into your house and he’ll add his own room to the right of your bedroom. Keep in mind that you can romance other characters even while living with Krobus, and he’ll also help you raise children from previous relationships.

Krobus is a friendly monster that you’ll find tending a shop in Pelican Town’ sewers.

Keep in mind that Krobus won’t be back at his shop after moving in with you, but you can go to the same spot where he stood and interact with a treasure chest to purchase all the same goods.

If you don’t want to live with Krobus anymore, you can evict him for free through the book in the Mayor’s Manor. However, he’ll be mad and refuse any gifts coming from you.

And that’s everything you need to know to get Krobus to live on your farm in Stardew Valley. If you want to know more about ConcernedApe’s game, you can check our guides below:
