How to Advance the Story in Cozy Grove
Story progression is tied to Ghosts, Flamey and Spirit Logs. It goes like this: you discover a new ghost, complete their requests and they give you a Spirit Log that you then feed to Flamey. Feeding the fire extends a metaphorical light that helps other stranded ghosts find your island. Of course, these new ghosts will have more quests for you, so on and so forth. How many Spirit Logs you can get is locked behind real-life time. When you’ve collected all the Spirit Logs for the day, Flamey will tell you to wait for tomorrow.
More Spirit Logs will be available the next day when you speak to Flamey or you check your Spirit Log availability on your Journal.
Cozy Grove Foraging & Resources
The first ghost Jeremy Gruffle will reward you with a Wooden Shovel when you complete his first request for 5 Branches. The Shovel will allow you to dig up soft Dirt Mounds scattered around the island. As you advance the story and the days pass, Jeremy will have more tasks available and you will unlock more Tools.
Aside from Dirt Mounds, you can unearth resources from Leaf Piles and you don’t need any tools to dig through those leaf piles.
Gathering Spots Respawns are limited
All gathering spots such as dirt mounds and leaf piles will respawn a few times a day, but yes, only a few times. So make sure to loot all of them and rely on an infinite source.
Burning Items to Create new Ones
You can approach Flamey at any point and tell him you want to burn things. Burning things usually create new items; don’t worry, you get to see the item that will be created before you burn anything. As I will explain below, a popular way of making money is by burning fish and selling the fishbones.
Get familiar with the layout of your island. The clues for items will usually tell you that it’s close to X thing, such as a skull. Make sure to take note of where these landmarks are so you can find them quickly the next time.
The Pickaxe is an important tool that you get as a reward from Jeremy Gruffle after delivering 5 Branches and 1 Softwood. The Pickaxe will let you mine rocks and obtain resources such as Small Silver Ore.
A note about the Pickaxe
You can’t get this tool on your first day in Cozy Grove. It must be at least day 2!

What to do while waiting for a new day in Cozy Grove
The best thing to do while you wait for Spirit Logs and new quests is to dig up every Dirt Mound, Leaf Pile, mine every Rock and when there’s nothing else left to do, fish.
Cozy Grove Fishing Guide
You can sell the fish you get, but it’s better to burn some fish instead of selling them straight away because you might get more money by selling the Charred Bonefish that you get from burning than selling the fish. That’s why we have this handy table to help you figure out which fish to sell. Every Charred Bonefish sells for 50 coins, so if burning the fish gets you 3 bones and the fish sells for 100 coins, you’d be making 50 coins more by burning the fish. The table is colour-coded so you can easily spot the fish that are worth selling/burning.
Leave a comment if you have any more data about fish that we’re missing.
- Red: Loss
- Green: Profit
- Yellow: No Profit
|Fish||Fish Seling Price||Charred Bones per Fish||Profit by Burning|
|Ghost of Drowned Sailors||25||1||50|
|New World Perch||25||1||50|
|Queen of Carp||50||2||100|
