Best Gold Tools To Craft Chart

Golden Fishing Rod

| Golden Watering Can|
Prioritize Golden Net & Fishing Rod
Nets and fishing rods are the most used tools in the game. It's best to have the gold versions for higher durability and longer usage when you're working around your island.
Axe & Shovel Have Medium Priority
You can cut down trees with a normal axe so a gold axe is not as important. With the existence of gold holes to make money trees, gold shovels don't have such a key purpose in the game.Check Out How To Grow Money Trees!
Watering Can & Slingshot Are Lowest Priority
The gold watering can is used to make gold roses. Aside from that function, it is used like a normal watering can so it's not as important in the game. The Golden Slingshot is also heavily lacking in terms of practicality - a normal Slingshot will function nearly as well.Check Out How To Get Golden Roses!
