Taming Journal.png

Basic Info

  • The Taming Journal records the monsters the player has tamed.
    • After taming a monster, the monster's tab displays what date and time it has been tamed, where it has been tamed, and the appearance of the tamed creature.
  • Only taming via Taming Wild Animals will add to the journal; Control of Darkness does not work.
  • Taming monsters provides an amount of stars, which increases the Life Exploration Taming Cane's Magic Attack and Critical.
    • The amount of stars a category of monsters gives is dependent upon the monster in the category that was tamed.
    • The stars appear under every category of monsters after completing the entire journal.
  • Monsters with no data whatsoever are denoted with "(?)".
    • Monsters with this symbol appended to them have not been tested in any way. It is unknown if they are even tamable, and if they are tamable, it is unknown what journal entry they belong to, if any.
  • Monsters confirmed as tamable but not actually tamed to confirm what entry they apply to are listed in italics.
    • If a monster gives the system message "The animal seems to be untamable", it cannot be tamed under any circumstances and should be removed from the table.
    • If a monster gives the system message "You failed to tame the animal", it can be tamed and should be listed in italics. This will indicate that the monster can indeed be tamed, but that the category to which it belongs is in question and should be looked into further.
  • Monsters confirmed to have a 5-star rating are listed in bold.
    • If a monster is not listed in bold, that does not necessarily mean it does not have a 5-star rating. Only confirmed 5-star ratings are bolded.
  • Hardmode monsters affect monsters' star ratings. Shadow Mission and Theatre Mission difficulty settings, however, do not.

Fynni Gem

The varieties of Fynni Gems

Inside each monster and animal, listed in the Taming Journal, resides the Fynni a type of fairy. With the help of the Fynni Catching skill, the Fynni is cast out as a Fynni Gem.

  • Only after completing the quest [Pet Training] A Glimmering Curiosity and obtaining the skill Fynni Catching, a Fynni Gem icon will appear above certain monsters.
  • Not every monster will have a Fynni Gem above their name.
  • Fynni Gems are categorized by different grades and are set apart by different colors.
  • Each monster and animal belongs in a particular group in which the Gem will take its name; foxes of every type will drop a Fynni Gem: Fox. However, some animals and monsters will also fall under the name of one particular group of which it does not resemble. For example, a Black Porcupine will drop a Fynni Gem: Armadillo.
  • Conveniently, the rest of monsters and animals will only drop the Fynni Gem with the same name; a Banshee will drop a Fynni Gem: Banshee.
