The Crabby Hermit, or Pearl is a Mob exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. She can be found on the Hermit Island.

Players can perform tasks to help the Crabby Hermit in exchange for Shell Bells, Honey, Lures, Advert, the Pearl's Pearl and an access to the Bottle Exchange Tab.

Brain BehaviorEdit

The Crabby Hermit goes out of the Hermit Home during the day. She roams on her island, performing various tasks, mostly fishing. She will approach and comment while the player is performing a task. She is immune to any damage.

Hermit Drying Rack TasksEdit

When a task is completed for the first time, the friendship with the Crabby Hermit increases by one level. Each task can be redone several times for extra Bundle of Thanks, but they will not grant friendship.

After level 1 the proximity to the Crabby Hermit grants access to the Bottle Exchange Tab. More recipes are unlocked at friendship level 3, 6, 8, and 9.

When friendship goes to levels 2, 4, 5 and 7, she gives the player a Bundle of Thanks. She also gives a Bundle of Thanks when a task is performed for the second time and for each of the following ones.

At level 10, if the Hermit Home is fully upgraded, she gives the Pearl's Pearl.

The color of the Crabby Hermit's speech is initially light pink. At level 4, the color changes to light magenta. At level 8, the color changes again to light purple, and players will see her as Pearl and her Hermit Home as Pearl's Place. At this point, she will also dance when a player performs the dance emote.

The tasks players can perform for the Crabby Hermit are:

An Ocean Fish is heavy if it weighs more than 70% of its maximum weight from its minimum weight. Heavy fishes produce an extra examination quote when weighed with a Pocket Scale.
