Rune Factory Frontier Working Bestiary

The Monsters of Rune Factory Frontier can be tamed, offering benefits from helping to work your farm to producing items useful in cooking and crafting.  In this guide, I share the how to get started with pet taming and care, as well as which monsters to tame for useful abilities.

Pet Monster Basics

First, you need a barn. If you don’t have one already, see Kross to have him build it. The cost is minimal, suitable to early in the game. It’s also a good idea to grow a patch or two of grass (fodder) and harvest it with the sickle before you tame any monsters, as going hungry reduces their friendship level.  The grass is ready to harvest when it resembles tall grass and covers your characters boots. Fodder is stored in the barn when harvested, so don’t harvest before you have a barn.

Now you can tame monsters using the Pet Glove. Keep them well-fed in your barn and pet them daily to raise their relationship score. You can also take them for walks to the beach, mountain road, or Town Square, or take them into dungeons, to boost to their friendship score. This bonus applies once, with the first eligible area you take them to, per monster per day.

As long as you have fodder stored in the barn, they will be fed automatically. When they reach the first friendship level they can be scheduled to work, or you can begin collecting their products using the multipurpose Harvester.

The Harvester comes from Candy, if you don’t already have it ask her about Runeys and Rune Wonders and she will give it to you. The Pet Glove comes from Kross, talk to him after you’ve visited Whale Island for the first time to receive it.

To schedule a monster to work, go up to it in your barn and click on it, and choose the available job. It will be scheduled to start the following day. Producers and mounts do not need to be set to work.

As your friendship with the monsters increases, their work will improve. In the case of producers, this means more and better products. The workers get more done.

To get very specific, producers of milk, eggs, honey, and wool will give you products the level of their FP. Producers of everything else give increasing numbers of the product matching their FP. So a Gobble Box with 3 fp would give 3 gems, and a Wooly at 3 fp would give one level 3 wool.

The Monster’s Work Schedule is posted outside your barn, and reads as follows:

Farm Work Schedule

7am: Gather edible plants

11am: Harvest crops

3pm: Water plants

7pm: Gather lumber

10pm: Clear out rocks

1am: Mow grass

This work will still be done even when you’re not there or have gone to bed.
