How do I tame Monsters?
You can tame certain monsters when they are in a weakened state during combat. Once taming is triggered, you need to approach the monster and long press (A) to prompt a Quick Time Event that you need to succeed to tame the monster. Tamed monsters are transferred to your estate lobby. Not all monsters can be successfully tamed on your first try. If you fail, give it another go!
Figure 10: QTE for taming
Once the monster is tamed successfully, you can check them out in the animal pen inside your estate. Some tamed monsters will become livestock, while others might have the chance to be trained to become mounts!
Figure 11: Mounts or Livestock
Some tamed monsters can be trained as mounts. You can view which monsters can be trained as mounts by checking the stables tab. Other tamed monsters can be trained inside the animal pen as livestock to produce materials that you can gather.
