How to 'Feed the Sand Dragon His Last Meal'

As players go through Stardew Valley, they may eventually start the Mysterious Qi questline. After players replace the battery pack in the roadway tunnel by the bus stop, they will be given a variety of strange requests from Mr. Qi that they must complete.

One of the requests for players is to "give the sand dragon his final meal." With Stardew Valley players mostly seeing anything dragon-like as enemies in Skull Cavern, they may think that the sand dragon is an enemy they need to defeat. However, players don't need to face off with any kind of dragon boss for this request.

The only things players will need for this part of the quest are one solar essence and access to the Calico Desert. Solar essence is an item dropped by ghosts, iridium bats, haunted skulls, squid kids, mummies, and magma sprites. Players can also get them from Krobus and a sunfish fish pond.

In order to get access to the Calico Desert, players will need to complete the vault bundles in the Community Center. In total, this will cost players 42,500g, but will repair the bus and allow players to get bus tickets to the desert region.

Once players have everything they need, they need to take the solar essence to the desert. The bus line starts at around 10:10 am in Stardew Valley's in-game time with players only being able to buy tickets once Pam gets to the bus. She will leave her station at 5:00 pm, but players can still go home if they are in the desert past 5:00 pm.

After getting off the bus in the desert, players need to head west on the road until they see a large animal skeleton on the south side of the road. This is the sand dragon that players need to "give his meal" to.

Once players approach the sand dragon's skeleton, they need to use the solar essence on the skull's mouth. This will unlock the final request for the Mysterious Qi questline that players need to follow, in which they need to check the lumber pile next to the player's farm house. Doing this will give players the Club Card, which will allow players full access to the Casino inside Calico Desert.

The Casino is located in the Oasis store that's south of the sand dragon's skeleton. Going inside with the Club Card will allow players to get into the secret back room where the Casino is being run. There, players can participate in multiple gambling games.

Stardew Valley is available now on Mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
