- How to build monster barns
- Tameable Monster Locations
Taming monsters is one of the returning features in Rune Factory 5 previous games in the series. The game encourages you to do this as tamed monsters can help in battles, work on your farms, and even be ridden for extra movement speed.
Some monsters can even produce various items, which is extremely useful if you’re trying to fill your Expedition Log and cook up all the tasty recipes in the game.
How to build monster barns
If you want to tame monsters, you will first need to build a Monster Barn. In this episode of Rune Factory, Monster Barns can only be built on the backs of Farm Dragonsgiant secondary farms that you will unlock during the game.
You’ll get five Farm Dragons throughout the game, and each Farm Dragon can have two Monster Barns built on it.
Once you have a farm dragon, you can build Monster Barns by going to Studio Palmo and ask Palmo or Ryker for a renovation – each barn will cost a certain number of SEED points and a significant amount of wood and material stone.
Once built, Monster Barns can be upgraded to hold more monsters by increasing the number of rooms inside.
- Each room in a Monster Barn can hold four monsters.
- Each Monster Barn starts with one room.
- Each Monster Barn can have four additional rooms, for a total capacity of 20 monsters.
With five Farm Dragons and two Monster Barns per Farm Dragon, the total number of monsters you can tame in the game is 200.
How to tame monsters
Taming monsters is a relatively simple process. As long as you have room in one of your Monster Barns, you can tame a monster by offering it an item the same way you would gift an item to one of Rigbarth’s residents. Simply approach with an object in your hands and give it to them.
A small heart will appear above the monster’s head and start pulsing – this animation has the same effect as the Pokeball shaking in Pokemon, the longer the heart beats the more successful the taming attempt.
- If the heart gets hugeyou have successfully tamed the monster and you will be prompted to give it a name.
- If the heart turns into a skullyou failed to tame the monster.
If the icon above the monster’s head immediately turns into a skull, the taming attempt has automatically failed. This means one of five things:
- You do not have enough room in your Monster Barns to welcome this new monster.
- you are not a level high enough to tame the monster – Level up a bit and come back.
- You try to tame the monster with an object that hurts himlike withered grass or a failed dish.
- You try to tame a monster boss with an object he doesn’t like.
- The monster is not tamable. Some monsters such as King Wooly can never be tamed.
While monsters have favored items that greatly increase the success rate of taming attempts with them, these are rarely needed. Brute forcing the proof with cheap items will eventually work unless the monster is a boss. Recommended items are colorful grasses you can find anywhere Turnip seeds because they only cost 10G per pop.
To increase your chances of taming a monster, you can do two things before giving it items that will increase your success rate:
- Stroke it with the brush which you can buy at the general store. You can do this up to 15 times per monster.
- Attack him with a weapon that has the Love element. This is effective up to four times per monster.
- To turn any weapon into a love weapon, upgrade it with a love crystal. These can be grown from Pixies in Everlasting Darkness.

The table below lists all the items that can be produced by monsters in the game. Note that some monsters will not produce items every dayand that mobs will stop producing items if not fed – you will need to keep your forage bins full, especially if they are put to work.
Items produced by monsters will be left on the floor of their respective Monster Barns and will need to be picked up manually.
When it comes to Eggs, milk and fur produced by woolly sheep-like monsters, the size/quality of the item you get will depend on how close you are to the monster. The more hearts you have with them, the better the item will be. Pet them and give them a gift every day to speed up your friendship. You can check your friendship with monsters in the menu.
The fur produced by Chipsqueeks will always be of (S) quality.
