The Sims 4 Wishing Well: Romance, Promotions, Life, Youth, and more!

The Whispering Well was released as a part of the Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff Pack back in 2016. And since then, simmers from different parts of the world have come to love its magic! Us, being among them.

Now, the Wishing Well offers 9 different types of wishes. And, they each come with 6 outcomes, besides the grade wish, which only has 5 outcomes. In total, there are 53 possible outcomes from these 9 wishes. The outcome for each wish ranges from being very positive, positive, neutral, negative, or very negative, and a death outcome. You can recognize each of these outcomes by the visual effects that appear around the wishing well. These colors respectively include white, green, blue, orange, red, and black.

The wishing well’s emotional state influences each outcome, and your sim’s financial offerings. With each outcome, your sim gets a different moodlet. Note that between different wishes, there is a cool-down period of 8 hours. Anyway, let us tell you everything you need to know about this mysterious wishing well!

The 4 Faces Of The Wishing Well

The Sims 4 Wishing Well has a face located on the side of its roof, which for obvious reasons, lays over the Well itself. This face shows you the Well’s emotional state. Which, as we mentioned earlier, impacts the outcome of your wish. Anyway, the more wishes your sims make, the lower the Well’s mood becomes.

The 4 faces of the Well, and their outcomes are as follows…

  • Happy Face Outcomes: 20% Very Positive, 45% Positive, 25% Neutral, 7% Negative,
    3% Very Negative.
  • Neutral Face Outcomes: 10% Very Positive, 25% Positive, 30% Neutral, 25% Negative
    10% Very Negative.
  • Mischievous Face Outcomes: 3% Very Positive, 7% Positive, 25% Neutral, 45% Negative,
    20% Very Negative.
  • Deadly Face Outcomes: 1% Very Positive, 5% Positive, 8% Neutral, 5% Negative, 1% Very Negative, 80% Death.

Our advice… Whatever you do take it easy on the Well, your sim might end up dead!

If you have not caught on by now… Your Sims can actually make offerings to the Wishing Well! To get an overview of the offers and their outcomes, see the list below.

  • §100 Offer – Makes the Well unhappy, because the offering is small.
  • §1,000 Offer – Provides a 50/50 chance for raising, or lowering the Wishing Well’s mood.
  • §5,000 Offer – An offer as high as this one, will instantly raise the Wishing Well’s mood. Which of course, grants your Sim a higher wish success rate.

Note, that if your sim interacts with the Well repeatedly in a short amount of time, the Well becomes dissatisfied. So, make sure your Sim’s offerings have enough time in between them! Believe us, you do not want an angry Well.
