FAQ: Game Tools / Mechanics / Stores
What is the Touch of Magic in-game tool?
The Touch of Magic is an in-game tool that allows the player to create custom T-shirts, backpacks, Mickey ears hats, etc. Using a variety of colors, shapes and motifs, players will be able to create an infinite number of combinations and express themselves in unique ways!
What is a Moonstone and the Star Path, and what are they used for?
Moonstones are an in-game currency within Disney Dreamlight Valley that can be collected in-game for free through regular gameplay or purchased with real money. Moonstones can also be used to purchase cosmetic items in the in-game store menu, which will be made available at a later time in early access.
In game, Moonstones can be used to accelerate your game progress on the Star Path. Or, they can be used to unlock the premium track of the Star Path. The Star Path is a Battle Pass-inspired system that rewards players with in-game cosmetic items as a player completes various tasks and missions. Overall, while moonstone usage in-game will help to unlock extra cosmetic items throughout their journey in Dreamlight Valley, purchasing more moonstones (in-game currency) with real money is not required to enjoy the base game.
What is a “Star Path”?
The Star Path is a season-based mission system inspired by the idea of a “Battle Pass” used to reward players for completing various missions and tasks during an in-game season. The player has a full season to complete a set of duties to receive exclusive cosmetic items (i.e. clothing items, companions, furniture sets, etc). A season’s duration is currently planned to last for one month, but as devs continue to receive community feedback this may be adjusted to enhance the gameplay experience.
The Star Path has two progression tracks, each with unique rewards:
- Standard Star Path Track: The standard track is accessible to everyone in the base level game with the purchase of a Founder’s Pack Edition.
- Premium Star Path track (optional): The premium track is unlocked with Moonstones and offers players the ability to accelerate their progression in the Star Path (and skip missions) by spending Moonstones.
While moonstone usage in the Star Path will unlock extra cosmetic rewards for players interested in gaining more items throughout their season, purchasing more in-game currency with real money is not required to enjoy the base game.
What kind of Missions will the player have to progress in the Star Path?
Star Path Missions will change with each season (to fit the theme of the season). For example, players will be asked to take care of the Valley, interact with its inhabitants, garden, fish, cook, and more.
Will the cross save/progression on the Star Path be shared and accessible on all platforms?
Yes, your progression on the Star Path, for both the free and premium track, will be saved and shared between platforms, except on PlayStation consoles.
Will my free and purchased Moonstones be sharable across the different platforms?
The free Moonstones you collect in-game will be sharable across all platforms (except on PlayStation consoles).
Purchased moonstones bought with real money are platform specific. This means players can only spend these platform-specific Moonstones on the related platform.
Items purchased with free or platform-specific Moonstones will be available on all platforms. The game, Founder’s Pack Edition cosmetic items and purchased items are cross-save compatible on all platforms, except for PlayStation consoles. Players will be able to access purchased content on all platforms except PlayStation consoles.
