Assigning roles to companions is a key feature that allows you to gather various items and materials twice as fast as normal. Here are some important points about assigning companion roles:

  1. Friendship Level: To assign a role to a character, you need to have reached a friendship bond of at least level 2 with that character. Friendship bonds can be increased by spending time with the characters and engaging in various activities with them.
  2. Role Benefits: Each role provides a specific benefit when you hang out with a character assigned to that role. For example, assigning the fishing role to a character will double the number of fish you catch when spending time with them.
  3. Role Options: The available roles you can assign to companions are Fishing, Gardening, Mining, Digging, and Foraging. Each role corresponds to a specific type of resource or activity in the game.
  4. Assigning Roles: To assign a role, interact with the character you want to assign the role to and select the “Let’s Hang Out” option. During this hangout session, the character will help you gather resources related to their assigned role.
  5. Role Bonuses: The rewards you earn for performing tasks related to the assigned roles can be increased by raising the rank of your bond with the character. Hanging out with characters more frequently will help improve your bond rank.
  6. No Limitations: There are no limitations or restrictions on which roles you can assign to characters based on their gender or other factors. You can freely assign any role to any character without consequences.
  7. Role Assignment Permanent: Once you assign a role to a character, it cannot be changed or reset. Therefore, consider your choices carefully before assigning roles to companions.

In summary, assigning roles to companions in Disney Dreamlight Valley is a useful way to boost your resource gathering and maximize your rewards. Build strong friendships with characters to unlock these roles and take advantage of their benefits.

As mentioned above, there are five roles you can assign to any five villagers in Disney Dreamlight Valley. The functionality of those five roles is explained below:


Taking part in the Gardening activity

Gardening involves planting and harvesting various crops and vegetables. Hanging out with a friend, assigned the garnering role, will help you earn an extra vegetable every time you harvest. Furthermore, among all the roles available in the game, gardening gives the most significant boost to your friendship. So make sure you assign this role to the character you want to have the maximum friendship bond with quickly.

Catching Fishes
Taking part in the fishing activity

This is one of the best activities in the game solely because of how high fishes sell in Dreamlight Valley. Catching a fish totally depends on your reflexes, but once you catch one, it fetches for a high price. Taking the character, who specializes in fishing with you, will allow you to net another fish of the same type you just caught.


Taking part in the Foraging activity

Foraging involves collecting natural resources such as wood, berries, wild crops, herbs, garlic, and more. Having a character who specializes in Foraging with you can quickly help you gather all the necessary items you need for a quest.

Digging ornaments
Taking part in the Digging activity

Digging can be used for two purposes, creating holes for farming or finding various materials hidden beneath the surface of the Earth. The materials you can gain through digging include Soil, Clay, Sand, and Dreamshards. So bringing a friend who you assigned the role of digging will be worth your while; due to that fact, you can now gather your required materials twice as fast.


Taking part in the Mining activity

As the name suggests, this activity helps you in gathering resources like ores, gemstones, rocks, and coal. Tagging a friend along with you for this activity can be worth your while due to the fact that now you can earn twice as many gemstones and other useful ores. Unearthing a shiny, rare gemstone is irregular, which is where your companion comes in, helping you net an extra gemstone of that rarity.

Speaking of ores, also consider reading our guides on iron ingots and gold nuggets in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
