How to buy Iridium Sprinklers (Strardew Valley)

Iridium Sprinklers are the best type of sprinklers available in Stardew Valley, but you need a lot of crafting materials to craft them from scratch. However, it is also possible to buy them! You can actually purchase one each Friday for 10 000 gold. It's sold by Krobus, which is located in the sewers. You can only buy one at a time, and he only sells them on Fridays, so you can get one per week. This is really useful if you rater want to spend your Iridium Bars on other stuff.

In order to be able to buy the Iridium Sprinklers from him, you need access to the sewers. This place in unlocked once you have a total of 60 items delivered to the museum, so you better get donating if you want the sprinklers.

How to reach level 70 as fast as possible in season 7 (Diablo 3)

Season 7 is about to begin, and the first thing you want to do is reach level 70 in your new character. If you want to get the seasonal journey completed as fast as possible, you should consider playing a Witch Doctor or Demon Hunter, because their free sets are really good for quickly getting to high Torment Difficulty and high Greater Rift levels solo.

There are basically two fast and easy ways to level up in season 7: 1) do rifts with a full group, or 2) chain kill is Fields of Misery Act 1.

Chainkilling speed leveling

Chainkilling monsters in Act 1 Fields of Misery is a little bit faster than doing rifts, but has a few downsides as well. The biggest problem is that you do not have any gear or gold once you reach level 70, so doing the journey needed to get the free set is a lot harder than if you level up in rifts.
To properly chainkill you also need to play as a Witch Doctor, and you cast DoTs on all the enemies in Fields of Misery. This will get you chainkills with 400+ monsters, and each run gives you a few levels.
With this method you can reach level 70 in a little under two hours! See the video below for a guide on which talents to pick etc.
The nice part about this method is that it is also viable on hardcore, so this is an easy method to get to 70 on hardcore difficulty!

Rift speed leveling

The other method is easier for most people, and it is speedclearing rifts with a group of four people. Finding three others who wants to speedclear with you is the best way, but it can also be done in public groups, but this will be slower due to not all people being 100 % focused on clearing it as fast as possible.
With a good four man group you can reach level 70 in less than two hours, so it's not really any slower than chainkilling. In public groups you should expect to use between 3 and 4 hours total, depending on the groups you play with.

Either way, do be able to do it as fast as possible you should practice on a new character a few times to get the hang of it. Plan which talents to use at what levels, so you don't need to spend time on that after the season launches.

If you want to go for the chainkill method, check out the YouTube video by Desolacer to learn how to do it.


Get boosted

If you are a few days late to the party, another good strategy is to get boosted. There are lots of boosting communities in both US and EU, so just check out the public communities, join one as ask nicely for a quick boost. This should take less than 20 minutes with a decent booster. 

Good luck with season 7!
