Rune Factory 3 Special Daria Romance Guide

Daria is an unusual bachelorette in Rune Factory 3 Special. Unlike the other love interests, she doesn’t live in either village. She is instead found just outside a dungeon. This elven artist lives alone in pursuit of her creative genius. However, this isolation does mean that she’s in great need of a sidekick, a role that you end up taking on.

Where Do You Find Daria in Rune Factory 3 Special?

You will rarely see Daria in the village itself. Instead, head towards Privera Forest, and you’ll encounter her house on the same screen as the save point. Usually she’s inside, but there are times when you might find her working outdoors.

Daria loves rainbows, so naturally her favorite date spot is Rainbow Falls in Oddward Valley.

What Gifts Do You Give Daria in Rune Factory 3 Special?

One of the simplest gifts to give Daria is colored grass or Lumber, as these help with her art projects and they’re all easily sourced from the Sharance Tree. Yellow, red, orange and black are the colors she prefers. She also likes jam, so Apple, Grape and Strawberry are all good options that can be whipped up in your kitchen.

Her loved items are a little less obvious, but they’re all made from recipes. You can make her Flavored Radish using a Pot and a single Daikon Radish, Dried Sardines with a Frying Pan and three Sardines, or Miso Eggplant using a Frying Pan and an Eggplant.
