Luau: Potluck Soup
The center of attraction of the Luau festival is the Potluck Soup. You and other villagers get a chance to add different ingredients to the soup. You need to add some good ingredients to it as after each addition of ingredients, the Governor tastes and judges it. This whole process takes place when you choose “Yes, let’s start” option while conversing with the Mayor. And Mayor Lewis with Governor gives a different reaction, depending upon the taste of the soup. All this results in an increase or decrease or even no change in the friendship points with all the villagers. But the friendship with Dwarf, Krobus, Sandy and the Wizard are never affected.
Potluck Soup: Governor’s Reactions
The change in the friendship points totally depends upon the ingredient you add in the soup and after adding it, what’s the Governor’s reaction. So If you want to earn the maximum 120 friendship points then you need to impress the Governor. For that, you need to take care of what you are adding in the soup.
Here are some ingredients which can result in a hundred percent win: Red Cabbage, Purple Mushroom, Super Cucumber, Truffle, Mead, Fairy Rose, Goat’s Milk, Mutant Carp, Legend, Glacierfish, Artichoke, Chanterelle, Starfruit, Ice Pip, Mead, Angler, Large Milk, Goat Cheese, Sturgeon, Yam, Wine (except Salmonberry and Blueberry Wine), Pale Ale, Catfish, Cheese, Lava Eel, Melon. Also, make sure that all the items are of gold or iridium quality.
And If you will add anything out of a Golden Grape, Silver/Golden Spice Berry, Grape Wine or a Standard Strawberry, it will not disappoint the Governor, the reaction will be good but not a great one. You will earn 60 friendship points.
