We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.

Dust Sprites are an enemy found in The Mines, from levels 40-79, in the frozen part of the mines. They are small creatures which often travel in packs. Dust Sprites are a great source of coal, as it is one of their most common drops. You need to kill 500 Dust Sprites for Monster Eradication Goals.
Dust Sprites bounce in place and chirp while inactive. If they spot the player, dust sprites will bound after them, causing damage upon collision. Occasionally, they will break a rock that is in their way.
Simply hit them. Cornering them against a wall will keep them from being knocked out of your melee range with repeated swinging. Because of their bouncy behaviour, it's easy for them to be closer than you expect.
Traveling to the entrance to the Mines will reset all floors. Repeatedly farming frozen levels of the Mines, then exiting the mines will allow for repeated farming of Dust Sprites.
- The Dust Sprites may be a reference to the Soot Sprites from Studio Ghibli's animated films "Spirited Away" and "My Neighbor Totoro".
- The Dust Sprite's name in data files is "Dust Spirit". This can be seen in-game during the cutscene at The Summit. It is also listed as "Dust Spirit" in Clint's Special Orders Quest
