Disney Dreamlight Valley Companion Roles: How to Craft Training Manual

Disney Dreamlight Valley's Festival of Friendship update has introduced Training Manuals into the game. Here's how to craft and use them to change Companion Roles.

Disney Dreamlight Valley features an assorted cast, and once you reach friendship Level 2 with a character, you can assign them a companion role associated with resource gathering. The roles include Fishing, Mining, Gardening, Digging, and Foraging. But what if you want to change them? That’s where Training Manuals come into play.

This decision is something you face early in the game, and as you play, your strategy might change, like how we realized we should’ve made more mining companions to accumulate Star Coins and show Scrooge McDuck who’s boss.

Thankfully, with the recent Festival of Friendship update, Gameloft has introduced Training Manuals that allow you to change your companion roles. We’ll explain how to craft and use Training Manuals here.  

Disney Dreamlight Valley Training Manuals Explained

First and foremost, a character must be friendship Level 10 to be eligible for a training manual. You can increase your friendship level through daily favorite gifts, conversations, quests, or simply having them follow you as you go about your Valley duties.
