During Early Access of Disney Dreamlight Valley, Prince Eric might be the most challenging character to unlock because it requires opening all the available biomes and completing many quests for different Villagers.
But, if you managed to start the Poor Unfortunate Prince quest, you are one step away from welcoming Prince Eric to your Dreamlight Valley.
So, throughout this guide, we will explain how to bring Prince Eric to your Village and complete the Poor Unfortunate Prince quest in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
How To Start Disney Dreamlight Valley Poor Unfortunate Prince Quest
To begin the Poor Unfortunate Prince quest, complete the A Deal With Ursula quest by finding the 3 Dark Crystals around the Dreamlight Valley to obtain the Magical Crystal, known as the Crystal of Power.
Then, in exchange for your efforts, you will receive the Poor Unfortunate Eric quest item from Ursula, starting the Poor Unfortunate Prince quest.
Find Ariel and bring Poor Unfortunate Eric to her to keep him safe while you talk to Merlin and find a way to change him back to his human form.
How To Turn Eric Human Again In Poor Unfortunate Prince Quest
As a coincidence, Merlin just finished reading a book on this matter called Transfigure Your Troubles Away: How to Turn a Frog Back into a Prince in Three Simple Steps.
Even though Prince Eric is not a frog, he is still a prince, so the same magic should work.
To turn Poor Unfortunate Eric back into a prince, you will have to complete the following steps:
- Build Eric’s Castle in the Village
- Find an object that’s dear to his heart in Eric’s Castle
- Have Ariel call his name three times, then seal it with a kiss.
Once you finish the conversation with Merlin, open your inventory, select the Furniture tab, select Prince Eric, and place his Castle wherever you want in the Village.
Then, use the Scrooge McDuck blue sign to pay 10.000 Star Coins for the construction of Prince Eric’s Castle.
After building the Castle, go inside and pick up Prince Eric’s Flute on the table in front of the door entrance.
The last part to bring Prince Eric back to his human form is to have him kissed by Ariel. So, after you pick up Eric’s Flute, bring it to Ariel and ask her to kiss Prince Eric.
The magic spell worked, and Eric is human again, but he feels weak and can barely walk. So he needs to regain his strength before he meets Ariel.
Therefore, you decide to prepare three different dishes that are fit for a prince:
- Vegetarian Stew
- Berry Salad
He agrees with your proposal and hands you all three recipes for the meals mentioned above. Check your inventory and use all the Recipes to add them to your Recipes collection.
