You can keep track of your Perfection achievements in Qi’s Walnut Room on the upper west side of Ginger Island. To gain entry, you’ll need 100 Walnuts, which can be found around the island. Then, interact with the purple cat screen on the right side. These are the achievements you’ll need to complete to reach Perfection:

All Produce & Forage Shipped145
All Obelisks on Farm (Earth, Water, Desert, Island)4
Build Golden Clock on Farm1
Complete all monster eradication goals for the Adventurer’s Guild12
Reach maximum hearts with every villager34
Reach level 10 in every skill (Mastery)25
Find all Stardrops7
Cook every recipe80
Craft all items129
Catch every fish 67
Find all Golden Walnuts on Ginger Island130

Reaching 100% Perfection takes time and is essentially what you’re working for throughout Stardew Valley. Reaching the total percentage will unlock endgame possibilities, like access to The Summit, golden chicken eggs, the Statue of True Perfection, etc. If you’re struggling to work through all these tasks, you can now use Perfection Waivers to speed up the process.

Where to Get Perfection Waivers

If you’ve reached Perfection in previous playthroughs, you can use Perfection Waivers to help bypass some of the requirements your next time around. You will receive a letter from Fizz, Jojo Special Services Division, inviting you to meet him at the “Watery Cave” at Ginger Island.

The “Watery Cave” that Fizz refers to is the Mushroom Cave, where Professor Snail is initially trapped. The cave is at the Dig Site just east of the Field Office. You must fix the bridge by speaking to a parrot and paying Walnuts. Once Professor Snail is freed using an explosion to clear the cave entrance, the cave will be accessible.

After you’ve received the letter from Fizz, heading to this cave will allow you to purchase a Perfection Waiver from him for 500,000 Gold. The Perfection Waiver works like a wild card for your Perfection, letting you bypass specific challenges and increase your score by 1% each time.
