Prioritize Golden Net & Fishing Rod
You will be using your net and your fishing rod the most in the game so it's best to have the golden versions of each tool. This allows you to catch bugs and fish longer with the enhanced durability of the tools.
Axe & Shovel Have Medium Priority
Sling Shot & Watering Can Are Lowest Priority
The Golden Slingshot is tougher and hard to break but that's the only effect we've confirmed so far. The main purpose of the golden watering can is to breed gold roses. Other than that, you can use a normal watering can to water your flowers every day.Check Out How To Get Golden Roses!
