In the third Beast quest in Disney Dreamlight Valley, “The Crown or the Claw”, you’ll have to help curb the temper of the lovable giant.
That’s what this quest is about: As soon as you reach level seven in your friendship with the Beast, you can start the quest “The Crown or the Claw” with him. The Beast is beside himself because Mother Gothel spoke badly about Belle. Your task now is to help Belle’s admirer settle the conflict like a true prince. We will help you complete the quest.
The Quest “The Crown or the Claw” in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Beast, as always, is the starting point of the quest. Go with him to Mother Gothel and watch their conversation. Unfortunately, this one does not go satisfactorily at all. We were quite surprised ourselves that things can get so rough in Disney Dreamlight Valley. After the argument, the beast first needs some time to himself to cool down. For you, that means not interacting or hanging out with him for a period of between 30 and 60 minutes. The timer will be paused if you do show up at the Beast.

Next, talk to Mother Gothel to briefly hear her side of the story. In doing so, you will learn the cause of the dispute, namely that Gothel made fun of Belle’s taste in books.
Repair Beast’s Furniture
If you have kept enough distance from the Beast, you can start the second part of the quest in a new conversation. In it, you’ll have to repair the furniture that the Beast smashed in his rage. So, he goes to his castle to collect a total of five broken pieces of furniture that are lying on the floor. Afterward, you’ll need to collect some resources (if you don’t already have them in your inventory) to repair the furniture:
- 20x softwood
- 12x Hardwood
- 10x Dry wood
- 5x Fabric
Once you have everything together, you can use your workbench to craft the “repaired regal plush couch” and the “repaired regal low table”. Take the two pieces of furniture to the Beast in his castle.
Like a prince or like a beast
In the next dialogue, you will now have to decide whether our offended hero should solve the matter like a beast or like a prince. Depending on which choice you make, the following scenes and dialogues will be a bit different. In any case, the quest will send you to Merlin for magical advice. The wizard recommends you make the Mirror of True Seeing. This magical item will show the true self to anyone who looks into it.
How to Make the Mirror of True Seeing
To complete “The Crown or the Claw” in Disney Dreamlight Valley and craft the magical mirror, you will need the following materials:
- 1x Gold Ingot
- 5x Glass
- 5x Dream Shards
- 3x Purified Night Shards
Solve the Conflict Like a Beast
If you have decided that the Beast should teach Mother Gothel a lesson, you need to set up the mirror next to the great willow where Mother Gothel lives. This will then show her what a cruel person she is. Talk to her afterward to finish the quest.
Solve the Conflict like a Prince
Once you have advised the Beast to behave like a charming prince, you have to place the mirror next to his castle and talk to him instead of Mother Gothel. This will also complete the quest. So either you help the Beast build trust in himself and his relationship with Belle, or you make Mother Gothel realize how evil she is so that she will leave Belle alone in the future.
Whichever you choose, the quest is completed.
