Monster Rearing

Monster Rearing.jpg

Monster Rearing is a feature of the Mog Gardens in which players can raise their own creatures from babe to brute. Revel in the joys of feeding time as you laugh, cry, and bond with your bestial buddies.

As they grow, watch them metamorphose into majestic creatures. Adventurers can even receive certain items from their charges, but the beasts will be less willing to part with anything of note should they be dissatisfied with their lot.

Eligibility

  • Have all gathering locations at a combined total ranking of twenty or higher (Possible with Rank 4 grove, vein and pond, rank 3 furrow and rank 5 coastal net, for example)
  • Have employed the assistant Susuroon at least once

Starting Out

Adventurers who have fulfilled the above conditions can speak to the Green Thumb Moogle to begin a line of quests in which a Qiqirn named Chacharoon will visit their Mog Garden. See below for the quest line and details on completing these quests. After the third quest in the line is complete, Chacharoon will serve as the liaison between adventurers and their monsters. Adventurers can even change their parenting style by speaking with him.

Caring for Monsters

You should always pet your little lamb.

Upon starting out, a player may only raise one monster at a time with a limited selection of monsters. More monster types become available as the player increases the monster rearing rank by purchasing Key Items from the appropriate vendors like any other Mog Garden node; and upon rank 3, up to two monsters may be raised at a time.

Once per day, the player may interact with the monster, feed the monster, and collect items from it. Generally, interacting and feeding tend to affect mood in either a positive or neutral manner, however, collecting items from monsters always decreases mood, excepting during times when a monster is "beaming with pure contentment."
Certain interactions strongly resonate with the monster type according to the table below, and such an interaction with a monster that is "calm and collected" has a high chance of giving the player its memento.

Feed Bonuses

While wearing the Jubilee Shirt, monsters gain twice the amount of growth progress per feeding. This is currently the only known item that offers this benefit.

Evolution

Feeding the monster anything causes it to grow. Some foods, however, cause the monster to grow in an irregular manner, resulting in a variant of the normal "adult form" for most monsters and even further evolution, such as in the case of the Sheep family. When feeding a "starter-tier" monster, with ★☆ stars, with a food that changes its evolution, the message "MONSTER squirms uncontrollably" is given to indicate that the monster has a chance to evolve depending on the food that was fed. If instead you see a message "MONSTER shudders violently." then that the monster has evolved, and simply zoning will cause the change in the monster to occur. Zoning between Mog Garden zones will not suffice.

Additional Notes

Note: Some exceptions to the growth requirement for evolution are the dragon hatchling, behemoth, cactus, mandragora, and ferromantoise monsters, which require ★★☆ stars before they will evolve.

Another rule to evolution is that HNM-Tier pop item foods will always cause your monster to evolve as long as the star requirements are met. (For example: Savory Shank.) HNM-Tier meats such as Gabbrath Meat and Gem of the West do not behave in this manner.

  • Otherwise sometimes monsters may be stubborn and you must simply keep trying every day. It is not uncommon for an eligible monster to take weeks to finally evolve.

Monthly Adventurer Campaigns

There is one campaign that may run any given month. It offers the ability to harvest materials twice a day when gathering from your monster:

Mog Gardens Campaign

Monster Breeding / Rearing Campaign

  • When this Monthly Adventurer Campaign is active, it is easier to evolve monsters.
    • Monsters that you are rearing are simply twice as likely to evolve. Normal food requirements for evolution, as well as feeding procedures are in still in effect.

Note: In the Monster Rearing Rank 1-7 charts below, food listed in bold+italics will strongly resonate with the monster.

Monster Mood

A monsters mood score is measured by an irregular scale; with "succumbing to darkness" as the "most negative mood" and "beaming with pure contentment" as the "most positive."
While a monster is under the "beaming with pure contentment" mood, an interaction that "strongly resonates" with it will reward you with Shining Stars, further, during such a mood the corresponding cheer Key Item memento will always be given upon collecting items from it. Furthermore, should you have two or more monsters under the "beaming with pure contentment" mood, upon entering your Mog Garden for the first time in the day, you will be awarded an extra Shining Star. (The status is removed after a day has passed.)
A monster that has "succumbed to darkness" will render all Mog Garden nodes inoperable, barring the Flotsam node. A monster in this mood must be dealt with by either: using "moogle magic" to improve the monster's mood, which uses a variable number of Shining Stars, with the number of stars needed increasing upon each use; or putting down the monster.

Parenting Styles

There are two types of parental styles available for your monster.

  • Personal Growth
    • The creature will gradually mature over time, but their mood will gradually degrade.
      • By default a new monster will be set to the Personal Growth parental style.
  • Enjoying the Moment
    • The creature's maturity and mood will remain constant unless the player feeds or interacts with it.

Adult monsters will grow until they reach a 3 star ranking. At this point, parenting styles will no longer have an effect on mood or growth.

Saying Goodbye

When you decide your partnership with your dear monster has reached the end of the line you may part with it in two ways.

  • "Send It Back Home."
  • "Put It Down."
    • This will earn you two items from that monsters collect items pool plus an addition "Put down" item.
  • Growth and time affect the items received from this option.

Monster Selection & Mementos

Upon starting out as a monster rearer you will have an initial choice of raising only rank 1 monsters.(either a sheep, a sapling, a rabbit, or a lizard; as below)
Rearing levels up similarly to the other geological locations in the Mog Garden. After enough time has passed and the appropriate rank Key Item has been purchased, you will gain access to more and more monster types as detailed below.

Access to Monster Mementos are unlocked after completing the quest Chacharoon's Cheer.

There is a chance you may obtain a Memento each day from caring for your creature. With increasingly greater chance the bigger the monster grows.
However, while a monster is under the "beaming with pure contentment" mood, the monster will always reward you with the corresponding cheer Key Item memento upon collecting items from it, and any interaction that "strongly resonates" with it will also give the memento.

To change your current Memento Cheer Effect, you must talk to Chacharoon and select talk about cheers. There will be a shining star cost to change to a new effect.

Upon obtaining a monster's type Memento Key Item, special items become available at the Mog Garden's Moogle Shop, according to the table below.

Please Note: While all the mementos listed below state that they increase skill gain rate, the in game descriptions state that they increase skill. This is erroneous on the part of the in game menus.

Key Items

Upgrade key items can be purchased from Zenicca for bayld, or from Skipper Moogle for gil.

Feeding and Collecting have no bearing on ranking up. It is based solely on "Times Cared for a creature". Talk to the Moogle -> learn about the garden -> Other tidbits. Interactions such as pet, yell, poke, stare, etc are the only thing that matters. As a result, at rank 5, you can "Pet" 3 animals, release 2 of them and then get 2 more, and "pet them". This allows for 5 "pets" a day, making rank 5->6 and 6->7 only take 4 days per rank instead of 7. You will get no "cheers", but will rank up faster.
