Rune Factory Walkthrough: Marriage Requirements, Eligible Ladies and How to Marry Mist

Rune Factory Walkthrough – Getting Married

rune factory ds

Unlike other Harvest Moon games, marriage is not expected in Rune Factory. You can end the game just fine without ever saying "I do," but it is an option. In all, you have 11 lovely ladies to choose for your bride, although Lynette only becomes available once the storyline is over, which stinks.

Marriage Requirements in Rune Factory

Like all Harvest Moon games, there are certain requirements you must meet before you can ask that special girl to be yours. First, you need 10 Love Points with the girl that you pick in Rune Factory. Next, you need to have upgraded your house and have bought the big bed from Ivan. Besides that, each girl will have their own requirements for you to get them to marry you so you will have to find out what those are and meet them before you can marry one of them.

Oh, and there is no blue feather in this Harvest Moon game, so you needn’t worry about it.

Eligible Ladies

There are 11 ladies in Rune Factory that you can woo and marry, if you so choose. Each one has a very special set of likes that you must pay attention to if you are to win anyone’s heart. Giving gifts usually raises the ladies love for you, as does talking to them daily and at festivals, and inviting them out on special love themed festivals.

Mist

mist normal

She is the first girl you meet. She helps your character by giving him water, a house and a plot of land to farm. She is also the default girl in Rune Factory, making her one of the easiest to court and marry, if you would like. She will come and talk to you on an almost daily basis if you don’t talk to her, and she is often hanging around your farm or even inside of your house!

Her house is right across from yours.

Birthday: Fall 1

Favorite Gift: Emery Flower

Gifts she likes: Radish, 4-Leaf Clover, Fried Udon, Baked Apple, Cake

Gifts she dislikes: none

Gifts to give her as your wife: Tomato Seeds, Tempura Udon, Flour, Sardine

Raise Love Points by:

Talk to her daily and give her gifts she likes. She also likes the Spring Festival and the day the Beaches Open, so talk to her on those occasions as well (and give gifts!) A birthday present for her will get you a huge boost of Love Points.

Marry her by:

Clear Danann Cave by defeating the boss.

Till all the soil in the field Mist gave you. You don’t have to plant anything, but it must be totally clear of all rocks and stumps.

Then talk to her in her house and you can propose.

Bianca

body bianca

She comes and sees you in your house on the second day you live there. She says it smells (who wouldn’t want to marry her after that?). Bianca is a rich and lonely girl. She lives in the mansion at the top of the town with her father. Since she is so rich, she doesn’t care for gifts.

Birthday: Summer 8

Gift to give her as your wife: Cake.

Raise Love Points by:

Talk to her daily and on festival days. If you have enough Love Points, you can ask her to join you on Moonlit Eve and Sacred Night, which will raise your Love Points even higher. She is rude at first, but the more you talk to her the more she’ll like you (and she starts liking you very quickly).

Marry her by:

Have 3 or more friend points with her father, Jasper.

Talk to her in the plaza on a holiday between 9 am and 3 pm.

Rosetta

body rosetta

Rosetta lives and works in the general store, since her father owns it. She is the one who picks up the items you place in your shipping bin on a daily basis. She is a bit of a tom-boy and is not a romantic at all. Also, she and Mist do not get along.

Give the White Stone to Rosetta and ask her to marry you.

After you get married in Rune Factory, only a few things change. Your wife will move in with you and make you food every morning which you can eat later in the day to revive some Rune Points. Also, after a few months she will have a baby. However, there is no interaction with the child and it will never grow from an infant.
