Rune Factory 5 Best Monsters to Tame

Rune Factory 5 allows players to Tame monsters found in the wild. The tamed monster can then be used to fight other beasts and creatures to reach a higher level. This guide will show you the best monsters to tame in Rune Factory 5.

How to Tame Monsters in Rune Factory 5

Before you tame a monster, you first need to fulfill a few requirements needed to do so. To tame a monster in Rune Factory 5, you must first build a Monster Barn where you’ll keep all of your tamed monsters.

Building a Monster Barn can be done by completing the Whispering Woods and acquiring the Earth Dragon. Once done, you’ll get assigned a task on your task board called “Build a Monster Barn.”

Don’t’ worry about the materials, as Ryker will provide you with all the materials needed to build a Monster Barn, such as x30 lumber and x50 stone.

You can also upgrade the barn to add more rooms and increase the monster capacity, which will reach approximately 200 monsters in the barn.

You can then fill the rooms with the monsters of your choice and change their rooms simply by telling them to follow you.

If your friendship level is above Level 3, you can also assign tasks to the tamed monster on your barn, which is enjoyable. However, don’t let them work for too long as they get tired and their health decreases.

Once you’ve successfully built a Monster Barn, you can now Tame any monster you like in the wild.

Taming a monster is surprisingly easy once you’ve built a Monster Barn. Simply head into the wild to find several monsters roaming around the area. Then, all you need to do is approach them and present them with gifts of their choice.

The likes and dislikes of the monster are indicated by either a skull or a heart. The Skull reaction means they dislike the gift, while the heart reaction means they accepted your present.
