As you continue to raise your friendship points with Gotts, you can unlock townsfolk events that allow you to get to know him better.
Unlike marriage candidates, you aren’t really required to respond with specific dialogue in order to gain their favor.
They also aren’t required to advance in your friendship with the non-marriageable villagers.
Below is a list of each event related to Gotts and the requirements needed to trigger them.
|Townsfolk Event||Friendship Points Required||Location||Requirements||Correct Dialogue Option|
|In a Slump||100 (4 friendship notes)||Gotts’ Workshop||
|Gotts’ Motivational Recovery||150 (6 friendship notes)||Gotts’ Workshop||
|Mountain Patrol||200 (8 friendship notes)||Gotts’ Workshop||
At 4 friendship notes, Gotts will give you the recipe for Okonomiyaki.
But unfortunately, befriending Gotts will not change the Workshop’s opening or closing hours.
