No one likes having their path blocked, so if you’ve found it happening to you in Disney Dreamlight Valley, it’s okay to be a bit frustrated. Exploring in Sunlit Plateau has no doubt introduced you to a variety of bones lying around, including some rather large ones keeping you from crossing the bridge here. Let’s get rid of those and open the space up a bit, shall we?
How to get rid of bones in Disney Dreamlight Valley
There are two types of bones in Sunlit Plateau–small and large–and you’ll need two different upgrades to remove them. Both require befriending Scar and completing quests for him. Here’s how to get both upgrades.
The first step to removing bones across Sunlit Plateau is to get Scar’s friendship level to 3. At this point, you’ll be able to start his quest “Breaking Bones,” wherein he’ll send you to speak with Scrooge McDuck.
After speaking with Scrooge, head back to Scar, who will then task you with finding the following items:
- x5 Lion’s Claws
- x5 Dry Wood
- x5 Iron Ingot
Lion’s Claws can be dug up from cracked ground spots around the edges of the Sunlit Plateau. Dry Wood can be found near trees in Sunlit Plateau, Frosted Heights, or Forgotten Lands. Making each of the Iron Ingots will require you to combine five Iron Ore and a piece of Coal at a crafting station (so a total of 25 Iron Ingots and 5 Coal).
Take these gathered items and access a crafting station to make the Lion’s Claw Shovel Head, which you can then use from your inventory to improve your shovel. You can now remove small bones throughout Sunlit Plateau.
To remove large bones from Sunlit Plateau, you’ll need to get Scar to friendship level 7 and unlock his quest “The Circle of Life.” The cunning lion will send you to speak to Mother Gothel, who asks for some Old Bones and 10x Purified Night Shards.
Old Bones are found within the Vitalys Mines in Sunlit Plateau. Enter the cave and head left, then break right at the first major intersection. To the left here is where you’ll find the item shining on the ground. Meanwhile, Purified Night Shards can be made by combining 5 Night Shards and 1 Dream Shard. Getting enough of these to make all of the Purified Night Shards may take some time, if you haven’t been stockpiling the individual shards.
Take the ingredients back to Scar, who will direct you to place them in the geyser inside his home. Do so to receive some ashes, which you’ll then need to plant somewhere in the valley and tend to with watering for about an hour until they grow into Flower of Bones.
Use the Flower of Bones and Purified Night Shards to craft the Roaring Shovel Head, then use it from your inventory to upgrade your shovel once again, finally allowing you to remove large bones in Sunlit Plateau. Clearing the way across the bridge will finally make navigating the biome easier, and it’ll also allow you to go speak to Scar once more to finish up his level 7 quest.
