Heart Points (All Bachelorettes)

  • Each bachelorette has up to 100 heart points, 20 per heart.
    • One red heart is 20-39 points
    • Two is 40-59
    • Three is 60-79
    • Four is 80+
  • Having 80+ points is the only requirement for proposing successfully.
    • Proposing below 80 doesn’t incur a penalty the first time, but subsequent sub-80 proposals are -10 each.
    • Points are not affected by proposing to other bachelorettes. (Nor, seemingly, any interaction with other people.)
  • Every day she can accept one gift or conversation in each category.
    • All categories reset when she wakes up.

Muffy begins Spring 1 with 18 points. What causes this is not yet known.

Heart Events

Each of Muffy’s events seems to require that all previous ones occur first, and on separate days. Sunny daytime is seemingly not necessary.

Points Requirement Trigger Description Best Choices You Warp To She Warps To
+5 20+ points Exit your house when Muffy is awake. Eek Default choices (-5 for “What did you want?”) In front of barn Near bridge (E 170, N 155), heading toward previous location

Bonus Points

Bonus points are heart points which are re-calculated when she wakes up every morning.

Farm Work

Common to Celia and Muffy: you earn bonus points from the work of doing chores. Each 100 work corresponds to +1 bonus point.

  • Work amounts
    • 1 per square watered/hoed or grass cut
    • 3 per seed planted
    • 3 per fodder put in a trough
      • none for simply taking it out of the silo
    • 7 for filling any water can (takes 3 seconds)
    • 9 for milking a cow
      • 4 for failed milking
      • none for talking or nuzzling

Lifetime Interactions

Unique to Muffy: if you have interacted with her enough times, you activate a +10 point bonus. The number of required lifetime interactions depends on the month and day, and the bonus will deactivate on days when the requirement is not met.

  • Required interactions:
    • Spring: 5 × [day of the month]
    • Summer: 10 × [day of the month]
    • Fall (unconfirmed): 15 × [day of the month]
    • Winter (unconfirmed): 20 × [day of the month]
  • For example, 100 lifetime interactions are needed to have the bonus on Summer 10, but only 15 on the next day, Fall 1.

Each day you can earn up to 5 interactions. (Doing more than that isn’t counted.) Since there is no glitchless way to interact with Muffy before she wakes up on Spring 1, it is impossible to catch up to the required number during Spring.

Schedule

(This Map helps to locate in-game coordinates.)

Muffy wakes up at 10am.

  • Bar Day
    • starts working 1pm, can’t visit or gifts
    • goes to bed at 00:36am
  • Town Day
    • mostly incompatible with rain
    • may leave bar ~11:30
    • may stop and chat in the hotel lobby ~noon-12:30p
    • she will typically be in town between 1:45p and 4p
    • then stop at Vesta’s farm, northwest riverbank at ~8:15p, southeast riverbank at ~9:15p and ~9:55, then home at ~11:30p
  • Outdoor Day
    • mostly incompatible with rain
    • northwest riverbank 5:??p
    • Carter’s tent ~8:20p
    • southeast riverbank ~10:50p
    • northwest riverbank ~0:20a (passes my farm ~0:50a)
    • home at 1:30a, goes to bed as soon as she reaches the ladder

Probabilities have not been measured, but Town Day seems more common on odd-numbered days. Town Day and Outdoor Day both seem more common on Spring 3 and Spring 7, and less common on rainy days.
