Harvest Moon: Back to Nature Guides and Walkthroughs

Elli's Birthday: Spring 16th or 20th
Easy Affection: Flowers from the Mountain/Forest

Elli is the traditional caring, sweet and nurturing girl who works at the Hospital in Back to Nature. Elli's grandmother is Ellen, the lady who lives right next to the Mayor and she also has a little brother, Stu who hangs out with Ellen for most of the day.

Getting Elli to like you is rather straight forward since she loves many of the different flowers that grow up in the mountains during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. If you decide to pursue Elli as a love interest, your Rival will be Dr. Tim her coworker and the owner of the clinic in Mineral Town.


Heart Levels

Below are all of the different Heart Levels you'll go through in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. Each time you increase your Heart Level with a girl you'll be able to witness a unique event between you and her if you show up at the right place and at the right time. These events usually give you some text options when they occur, answering right will increase your affection with her, answering wrong will lower it. Try telling the girl what she wants to hear.

Black (0 - 4999 Affection)
Purple (5000 - 19999 Affection)
Blue (20000 - 29999 Affection)
Green (30000 - 39999 Affection)
Yellow (40000 - 49999 Affection)

Red (60000 - 65535 Affection)


Tips for courting your Girl

- Talk to the girls at Festivals during the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter for a lot of +Affection! This works for regular villagers too!

- You can give a girl multiple gifts each day to raise her heart level rapidly.

- You can wrap gifts at the Supermarket and give them to Girls for bonus Affection points.

- Marry the girl you want before year 3 otherwise your Rival can steal her away from you! You also have to watch all the Rival heart events or they won't be able to marry too.

- Giving a girl a present on their birthday will give you a huge +Affection boost!
